How To Use The Visioning Method To Find Your Life Purpose

by Michael Beckwith June 11, 2018

Do your goals really belong to you? Or are they simply a photocopy of external influences in our modern society?

Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley and Michael Beckwith share how you can differentiate between these two in the video above.

The Method That’s More Effective Than Visualization


There’s a fundamental problem with modern-day goal-setting. We often focus on what other people have and then we try to photocopy those goals into our own life.

But the problem with that is that those goals don’t really belong to us.

Michael Beckwith introduces a process called Visioning. Unlike other ways of goal-setting, visioning helps you discover what you are meant to do during the time you spend on this Earth.

Watch the video above where he explains how this technique trespasses the limitations of other goal-setting methods and helps you discover what your true life purpose is.

How Is Visualization Different Visioning?

While Visualization is a technique that can help you, it does have its limitations. You can only visualize what already exists.

The problem is that what already exists out there is not for you. Their destiny is not your destiny.

You have your own unique destiny

And it’s a destiny that you are not going to find scrolling through Pinterest, following in someone else’s footsteps, or in the advice of your mentors.

That’s why you can do everything right — make the perfect vision board, set SMART goals, work tirelessly in pursuit of a career, a family, a life — and still not be happy.

Your unhappiness doesn’t mean you did anything wrong. It doesn’t mean that you didn’t get what you wanted (in fact, you did). It’s simply a sign that the Universe has more in store for you.

It’s a call to action.

Visioning begins with the spiritual idea that there is planted within each and every one of us a powerful destiny. A powerful, unique way that the Universe wants to express itself. So instead of telling the Universe what we want, we instead ask a question. What is the Universe’s idea of my life?

How The Life Visioning Process Transforms Your Life


The Life Visioning Process is about manifesting from your soul, not from other models of success. At the end of the day, true success is internal.

It’s not about looking good to other people or living up to preconceived expectations (usually still built on other people’s beliefs).

It’s about expressing the highest version of yourself.
