Kid with a Vision

Childhood is great practice for adulthood. Many of the habits that we create in our early years, whether they are physical habits such as how we eat, to belief systems of how we interact with the world through our thoughts, become our inner guide throughout our adult life.

Creating a vision is a great way to get kids on a path of making great things happen for themselves through learning about themselves, who they truly are, and how they want to show up in the world. Without a vision, children may often flow through life, letting life just happen to them, often unfortunately letting other people choose for them. A vision sets up a set of values and goals that can serve as an internal GPS throughout life, even assisting them in making difficult choices.

The following activities can be done by your child or as a family, to boost the magic of creating a vision.

First, we recommend that kids create a vision about who they want to be. This is the most important step because even if they aren’t sure what they want to do or what they want to experience, who they want to be – their morals and values – is at the core of who they are, regardless of their circumstances.
