  • channels your deepest values into your life and is a word picture of how values are lived out
  • inspires and engages your hands, head and heart 
  • highlights what you are living/ leading/ working from – it brings to light your upcoming learning
  • provides direction and a preferred future that organizes energy and aligns it in an action-directed manner 
  • is so clear that it is a virtual reality experienced in terms of all the senses - about sensing, believing and behaving the future NOW


Depth of Gratitude
  1. Gratitude expressed in thought or word is a whisper into the universe that has an effect beyond whatever you can realize today.
  2. Continue to be grateful for what you have and what you attract into your life
  3. The depth of your appreciation and its demonstration contribute to the fabric of your life and the communities in which you live.


Definitiveness of Vision
  1. Whenever I read the word ‘vision’ in association with my life, I immediately think about living from my future intentions.
  2. To live from vision is a way to focus my awareness (attention, and intention) on my path of shared living, leveraging, and leading with measures of laughing and loveraging added.  
  3. The more definitive I am in my vision, the more I align with the law of reciprocity.
  4. Life is proportional to action.
  5. And action follows your decision.
  6. Therefore, you decide what you get.
  7. And to know what you have, look at the decisions you have made.
  8. Today is a residual effect of your decisions yesterday! 

I am reminded:

  • Creating a Vision encourages you to take a stand for a preferred future
  • Creating a Vision highlights how you lead when you interact with others 


Do you know your life purpose?
  1. Look at what you do, what you say, what you dream, what you enjoy doing – in it are clues to your life purpose. 
  2. In living your life purpose, your ability to lead grows because you understand how to speak your ‘yes and no’ responses to decisions. 


Steadiness of Faith
  1. Faith is your belief in yourself.
  2. Faith means ‘nothing or no-thing is missing’ in your life! Just as the sun will rise in the morning, you will experience your life. 
  3. Holding steady to your faith involves loving yourself in concert with your Creator.
  4. Faith is a travelling companion in living your extraordinary life. It travels better than its opposite - doubt.
  5. When you are in faith you are living out of confidence.


What is Your Vision?
  1. Scan some magazines and cut out nine pictures that connect with you.
  2. Identify six words that have great meaning for you.
  3. Write down three phrases that resonate with you (or cut ad headlines from the magazines).
  4. With your 9-6-3 ideas … keep moving them around until ‘something’ jumps off the table.
  5. Be open to surprise – and it may not happen at once. You can keep adding, deleting and/or altering the 9-6-3 ideas you have collected.
  6. Stay with the process – your vision will unfold! 

When you live from your vision you lead … it is a precious gift to the world. 


Gratitude is...
  1. Gratitude can be in a gesture of thanks so simple that its quietness reverberates around the workplace.
  2. It can be in the hand you extend.
  3. Gratitude is at the core of your personal life decisions. You decide what you get. Whether before or after the decision, be grateful.
  4. Gratitude can be written into journals.
  5. It can be thought about in the evening before going to sleep and in the morning before your feet touch the floor.


What is your faith in...

Take an early morning, reflective afternoon or a quiet evening and consider your faith

  • What is your faith in you? 
  • What is your faith in your family and close friends?
  • What is your faith in work? 

Simply ask about your faith in different (yet connected) elements for living your extraordinary life.

And be open to surprise especially recognizing with faith comes heartfelt leadership, leading, and being a leader. 


Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.



You begin with a purpose. A purpose is the reason why your organization has begun a journey, guided by the deeply-held values and beliefs that inspire it to make a difference.

Your mission follows the path your organization sets to arrive at its destination: When someone asks you where you are going, they ask you how you are going to get there. Your mission is the how: the unique way you do what you do, the path you choose to follow, the decisions you make to get to your destination.

Vision is your destination, at a point in the near or distant future. It's your goal, and what you expect to find when you arrive at the destination. What can also be the specific product or service you sell. Your mission is your vision in action, connecting your purpose with your impact.

  • Purpose guides you. Your purpose statement articulates why you do what you do, why your organization exists, and why you serve a higher purpose (your cause).
  • Mission drives you. Your mission statement is how you accomplish your purpose; your mission is what drives you every day to fulfill your purpose. It's a direct path to your purpose and vision. Mission is doing what matters and eliminating the distractions; it unlocks the strategy that delivers results and impact.
  • Vision is where you aspire to be. Your vision statement is what you will achieve in the future, the results you want to reach for, the measurable impact you want to make. Your vision reminds you what the difference you make will look like, what change will happen. Vision aligns leaders and followers. It is an ongoing process of aligning your mission with your purpose. Vision keeps you on course, to fulfill your purpose.
  • Impact is what matters: What are the strategic goals that align with your purpose, and what are the measurable results of achieving your vision?



Aristotle argued that we become what we habitually do. If we spend our days thinking of everything that has gone poorly and how dark our future appears, we can think ourselves into misery.

While we should pay attention to the many injustices to be righted, we can also make the world a better place by being aware of the good things it already affords. We can change ourselves into the kind of people who seek out and celebrate things we can be thankful for.



Appreciate everything

The habit of being grateful starts with appreciating every good thing in life and recognizing that there is nothing too small for you to be thankful for.
