Shaping your career the way you want is no child’s play. You would never be able to scale the heights of your career till the moment you have a definite direction in your career. Having a vision, in such a scenario, becomes ever more important.
Most of us keep running in our careers without focusing our energies in one proper direction. As a result, our career goes everywhere but forward, and then we always wonder why we are not moving ahead in our careers even though our career horoscope has predicted otherwise. Blaming the sciences of astrology, inevitably, becomes the next step.
Let us shed some light on how one can create a vision for themselves and speed-up their careers like never before.

What is a ‘Vision’?

In order to move ahead in your career, you must first have a vision. But, what exactly does a vision mean? A vision is nothing but a reflection of your own self in the future. It is a picture of where you want to see yourself in the future. Your vision could be anything from a day, a week or a month to a year, five years or even ten years. The idea is to keep you motivated and focused.

It is always better to have a vision in sight as it helps in moving your career forward at a steady pace, and also keep a tab on your goals. Moreover, it keeps your goals within reach, retains your excitement and gives you a purpose in life.

aCreating the Vision

So far, you have only been getting acquainted with the definition of vision. However, that is not enough to further your career towards success and accomplishments. So, what is it that you need to do to create a powerful vision for yourself?
Simply close your eyes and think of all the things that you really want in your career. Whether it is a higher salary, job satisfaction or better boss/colleagues; just let your imaginations fly and completely take you over. The best way to go about it is to break down your needs into varied questions like
• Do I need a more paying job?
• Should I shift to a different work field?
• Do I need a less dominating boss or better understanding colleagues?
• What kind of company should I prefer?
• Should I opt for a job in my native city?
• Do I simply need job satisfaction?
Once you have clearly identified the requirements of your career, simply pen down the answers to all the questions that came to your mind. Post that, it’s just a matter of time before your dreams start turning into reality and your horoscope will only indicate towards success as far as your career is concerned.
Just a word of caution - do not let others clutter your mind while penning down the answers to your questions. Always listen to your own heart and mind. You live your life just once, so why not make it the best that it could get.
