Recap of Each Section of Finding Life’s Direction
Vision: We begin our process by helping you create a personal vision statement for your life. Vision is where you were going in life. Many young people are simply saying “I don’t know” when it comes to what they want to be when they grow up, a new study shows. Research says that a majority of youths are found to lack a direction in life. When I get around young people and I begin to ask them what they’re going to do with their life, many shrug their shoulders and say I have no clue. Once you begin the process of the Finding Life’s Direction course, you will be able to create and focus on your own personal vision statement.
