The Value of Purpose, Passion, and Vision, and How to Achieve Success​

Defining the Terms

The steps you take to achieve your vision includes the plans and the processes you implement to achieve your goals. Goals allow you to focus on an objective, mobilize you to achieve a goal, and increase your performance (Locke and Latham, 1968). “Stay committed by using visualization techniques to imagine how your life will look once you’ve achieved your goal” (Mind Tools, n.d.).

To get there, you’ll need to define your purpose, passion, and vision.

Purpose

Purpose provides you with a sense of meaning and guides your life and career decisions. It helps you shape your goals, and it provides you with a sense of direction.

They tell you why you are on this journey and what you want from life. They are your push and pull.” These energies might be derived from achievement, a search for meaning, compassion/contribution, and play and creativity. Every adult has the capacity to tap these passions.

Vision

Vision is what you hope the world will look like in the future because of your commitments and actions today. An inspiring and meaningful vision of the future can motivate you and move you into action...
