Introduction
why you need a vision
For I know the thoughts that I think
toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of
peace, and not of evil, to give you an
expected end.
Jeremiah 29 : 11 KJV
~ 5 ~
365 days of purposeful pursuit
You need a vision. You were born for a purpose bigger than
yourself. It’s time to make a new year’s plan.
Where do you want to be this time next year?
Graduating with a degree?
In a healthy relationship?
On a new job?
Opening a business?
Fit in a new size of clothes?
Comment below:
By next year, I want……

This will take sacrifice. You will have to stop wishing and
start writing. This vision must get out of your head and onto
paper. That’s why you have this journal.
Why Sacrifice?
Because if you don’t, you will treadmill through this coming
year, meaning you will be busy but going nowhere!
You need this plan because there is a God sized vision inside
of you that you need to tap into. This is how you will fill
fulfilled in life despite the obstacles.
#truestory
I wanted to finish my degree. I would think about it every
year. But do you know 8 years had gone by before I got
serious. It took 8 years of me hoping I could be promoted,
wanting to move into another position. 8 years of wishing.
Guess what? The year I got serious, I finished my degree!
Your bigger purpose is demanding of you to get serious
about your vision.
Power Scripture
Where there is no vision, the people perish
Proverbs 29 : 18 KJV
~ 7 ~
The word for vision here means to have a dream or vision
from God of future events. You need your vision from God
for the days ahead so you will not perish. God has a plan, He
knows what it is, He wants to give it to you!
365 days of purposeful pursuit
personal vision planning
power points
(1) Having a vision will cause you to succeed on purpose,
not wishing for things to change, planning for them
to change
(2) Look up Terri Savelle Foy- She coaches people on
how to get serious about their vision from a Christian
perspective, lots of free information and podcasts
(3) Refuse to let the challenges of what God put in your
heart stop you, you don’t have to have the money
NOW, you don’t have to have the connections
NOW, you don’t have to have the support NOW,
just get clear on what God is putting in your heart for
the destination
The can’t go wrong BONUS
(4) Write the vision down, pray over the vision, even if
you’re not sure of the specifics yet
~ 9 ~
are you in your own way?
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider
her ways, and be wise:
Which having no guide, overseer, or
ruler,
Provideth her meat in the summer, and
gathereth her food in the harvest.
How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard?
when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?
Proverbs 6 : 6 - 9 KJV
365 days of purposeful pursuit
are you in your own way?
This is not the time to just go into another year with no
vision and no preparation and just let life happen to you. You
need to happen to your life!
This is not the time to just go into another year with no
vision and no preparation and just let life happen to you. You
need to happen to your life!
(yes, I wrote this twice for emphasis)
What do you see? If you see nothing, it is not okay. You
must see something. Vision means to see. You were created
to see something. It’s time to pass your vision test! And it’s
time to prepare now. Your future is coming. Your future is
saying, “ready or not, here I come…”
Are you getting ready for it?
What do you see?
Debt paid off?
Learning a new language?
Investments?
Having money in your savings account?
Regular Church attendance?
~ 11 ~
Are you in your own way?
On a scale of 1-10 rate yourself on the following:
1- “No, I don't, 5- “Sometime, 10- “Yes
______ 1. I know what my goals for this coming year are.
______ 2. I have my goals written down where I can see
them.
______ 3. I review my goals every day.
______ 4. I pray over my goals.
______ 5. I thank God for doing the miracle things I can't do
for my goals to be accomplished.
______ 6. When I give an offering, I consider it to be a seed
toward my harvest for my God given goal.
______ 7. Other people know what my goals are.
______ 8. I purpose to learn at least one new thing a day or a
week toward accomplishing my goal.
______ 9. I have a mentor who already knows how to reach
my goal.
______ 10. I do not procrastinate, make excuses, or fear
going after my goals.
365 days of purposeful pursuit
If you have a perfect score of 100 you don’t need this, but
you should share this list with someone who does.
If you have less than 100 percent, you have some growth to
do and you need to get out of your own way and do it!
(don’t get mad, *raises hand* so do I!)
Do not be satisfied with less than 100! Anything less is below
your best effort.
Listen, until this is something that is worth your full effort,
you won't make it like you should!
Get a vision and prepare for it and review it every day.
Because if you don’t, you will think about it today, maybe
next week then put it away, hope for something to magically
appear, hope for the best; but it doesn't work that way.
You are not going to hope, you are going to prepare!
#truestory
I have a goal to speak on the Main Stage of a TEDx. To
prepare I took advantage of attending the local TEDx here
where I live. I networked. I learned how it looks, how it
flows, how the speakers presented. Etc. I took a first step
toward this goal. I have this now on my current Vison board
and I look at it every day and thank God for getting me on
the TEDx stage.
~ 13 ~
Power Scripture:
Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy
company that are assembled unto thee,
Ezekiel 38 : 7 KJV
Get your family and friends on board that God has called
alongside of you. You are not an island.
Let people know your do’s and don’ts and your needs and
wants.
Isn’t this getting exciting? You are on your way to 365 days of
purposeful pursuit!
365 days of purposeful pursuit
personal vision planning
power points
(1) Read your vision aloud and thank God every day He’s
doing the things you can’t do
(2) Everyday plan to do at least one thing to prepare, refuse
to procrastinate
(3) Go to google and youtube college, there is not anything
you can’t learn now, information is everywhere for pay and
for free
The can’t go wrong BONUS
(4) Put the goal on your phone notes, on sticky notes on
your bathroom mirror, in your office, somewhere you see
the vision EVERY DAY, the more you see it, it will get
inside of you

everyday successful habits
Who dares despise the day of small
things
Zechariah 4 : 10 KJV
365 days of purposeful pursuit
everyday successful habits
Success is an everyday journey. There will be days of success.
There will be days of failure. However, I think of days of
failure as days of learning or failing forward. It’s an everyday
journey.
Everyday means Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, with Sunday being a day of
rest. Yes, rest is a part of your daily success.
What is it you are wanting to plan for everyday?
Begin an exercise regimen?
A move to a new city?
Looking to buy a car?
Starting a charity?
Regularly volunteering at a shelter?
Spending more time with your children?
~ 17 ~
10 Suggestions for everyday habits:
1. Every day I look at my goals. This will help you say no to
timewasting but fun things and yes to things that are
necessary but not necessarily desired.
2. Every day I pray over my goals. This is beneficial for
seeking God’s input on giving you balance. You will have to
juggle your real-life job (for now), family, relationships, caring
for your home, and rest. This takes balance.
3. Every day I thank God for helping me. This is important
because there are things that have negatively happened in
your past that were meant to sabotage your destiny. You will
need help to overcome the wrong, hurtful things you have
endured or any mistakes you have made personally.
4. Every day I do at least one thing towards my goal.
5. Every day I speak positively about my goal.
6. Every day I close my eyes and envision myself in my
dream.
7. Every day I remind myself why I want my goal.
8. Every day I pray about overcoming the obstacles.
9. Every day I review my connections and determine who is
on my team.
10. Every day I think through how I can learn from my
mistakes.
365 days of purposeful pursuit
Envision yourself winning in your goal, close your eyes and
see it.
This will take sacrifice.
You will need to set aside time, about 5-10 minutes a day to
think and pray. I suggest mornings to get your day started
but if you are a night person, then you can plan for the day
ahead. If you feel you do not have this 5-10 minutes, then
borrow (in stronger words because I care…. TAKE) this time
from your social media and/phone.
Expect to see opportunities open for you. Pray over each
one for discernment, but expect real, right on time
opportunities to begin to come your way.
Put your money where your dream is. Rather than investing
in things that you just want. Move some money around if
necessary and begin spending money on things your dream
demands: a website, a passport, new cooking tools for your
baking business, a class, a business coach, etc.
If you don’t see yourself winning, who will?
Who will? Your mom… You need to see you winning and
others need to see you winning at your life. Envision yourself
winning in your goal, close your eyes and see it.

When I was in high school I wanted to be on the stage at
graduation. I wasn’t. When I went to college, again I wanted
to be on the stage at graduation. I was!!! I didn’t have the
grades. I was honor roll but not top of the class. I was asked
by the Dean of Education at my college to speak on behalf of
a group I had been involved in. When I joined the group, I
didn’t know it would lead to me speaking on the stage but
WOW, WOW, WOW it was just a God thing. But I saw
myself on the stage back in high school. The dream was not
meant for high school it was for later and it happened!
Power Scripture:
And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and
make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
Habakkuk 2 : 2 KJV
Be specific. God bless me
Bless you with what? Money? Okay, how much do you need?
A car? A new or used car? What style of car? What year? Get
the specific details in mind. God said write it down and make
it plain. I didn’t come up with this detail, God did! And it is
genius.
365 days of purposeful pursuit
personal vision planning
power points
(1) Go online and print out pictures and inspirational quotes
(2) Close your eyes and begin to see yourself in your mind in
your dream winning
(3) Be okay with starting small, in your home office, garage,
local YMCA, your living room with friends
The can’t go wrong BONUS
(5) Pray and listen for what God wants you to do this is
how you go from don’t know HOW to WOW
~ 21 ~
everyday successful words
Out of the same mouth come praise and
cursing. My brothers and sisters, this
should not be.
James 3 : 10 NIV
365 days of purposeful pursuit
everyday successful words
Your words matter. What other people say about you
matters only to the degree you allow it, but what YOU say
about you in your head is the real kicker. I can say, I’m
beautiful but if I say to myself inside, I could lose a little
weight. “I don’t look as pretty as Brenda.” “I’m aging.”
Then I am creating a negative influence on myself. However,
the more I speak right words aloud, the more I will begin to
agree with it. I must take the negative talk and flip it. Take
positive talk and keep creating with it.
What goals do you have in mind for the coming year?
Overcoming a habit?
Overcoming a fear?
Networking?
Planning a family trip to Disney?
Joining a running group?
Improving your marriage?
Buying a home?
Successful people understand the power of words:
“Words are containers for power, you choose what
kind of power they carry.”
-Joyce Meyer
~ 23 ~
“Throughout human history, our greatest leaders and
thinkers have used the power of words to transform
our emotions, to enlist us in their causes, and to shape
the course of destiny. Words can not only create
emotions, they create actions. And from our actions
flow the results of our lives.”
-Tony Robbins
“I am, two of the most powerful words. For what
you put after them shapes your reality.”
-Joel Osteen
“There is power in words. What you say is what you
get.”
-Zig Ziglar
These are all highly successful people telling you, telling me,
telling us that words matter!
What are you saying about yourself? What are you saying
about your destiny?
365 days of purposeful pursuit
We can speak reality. We can speak positive affirmations.
We can speak TRUTH.
Reality is exactly what’s going on that I can understand with
my senses.
Positive affirmations are words that I choose to use in
purposefully seeing my circumstances from the “glass is half
full” perspective.
TRUTH is what the Word of God says as promises related to
my situation.
Here are two examples:
1. Overcoming a habit such as smoking, drinking, or
drugs-
Reality- “I’ve been smoking since I was 14, it’s just
who I am now
Positive affirmation- I see myself free, I choose not
to smoke
TRUTH- Whom the Son sets free is free indeed
(John 8:36), thank you God for delivering me from
this habit
~ 25 ~
2. Getting out of debt
Reality- I owe so much money. I never have
enough. If I live paycheck to paycheck I’ll be doing
good to do that.
Positive affirmation- I am attracting wealth into my
life
TRUTH- God desires to supply all of my needs
(Philippians 4:19) and give me the desires of my heart
(Ps 37:4). I shall not want (Ps 23:1). My seed will
never have to beg for bread (Ps 37:25). I leave an
inheritance for my children’s children (Proverbs
13:22).
Pay attention to your words, especially the negative words so
you can replace them.
Tell me in one word, three examples of areas of your life that
you need to change your words about:
Examples: finances, relationships, friends, children,
______________________
______________________
______________________
What do you need to begin speaking positively about?
365 days of purposeful pursuit
This will take sacrifice. This is called the stop and start
sacrifice. I stop letting my emotions, past, and negative inner
voice tell me what to say. I start speaking positive affirmations
and TRUTH.
I make this sacrifice because if I don’t, I could be delaying my
own process or forfeiting it altogether. My own words can
and will be held against me!
When you change what you are saying, you will change what
you are seeing. Go ahead and say that aloud right where you
are: “Change what I say to change what I see.”
#truestory:
When I was pregnant with my second child I was asked to
come back in to retake my test for gestational diabetes. I only
told my husband about the test. I only spoke the TRUTH of
God’s Word that by Jesus stripes I am healed (Isaiah 53:5). I
kept it to myself and my husband because I did not want
anyone to say, “Well, you know diabetes runs in the family, so
you will probably have it.” I refused the reality: “Well, on
my dad’s side of the family this is in our bloodline so I’m sure
I have this.” I was very careful to watch my words. I prayed,
did what was asked of me by the doctor to prepare for the
retesting. I waited for the results. I was clear. No diabetes!
Can I prove that my faith confession is what kept me from
getting gestational diabetes? No, but I can say that I stayed
~ 27 ~
true to my faith with my words and for that I am grateful.
Words matter.
Power Scripture:
For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I
shall be whole.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said,
Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee
whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
Matthew 9 : 21-22 KJV
I believe verse 22 happened because of verse 21. She kept
saying to herself…. “I shall be whole.” Think about it. She
saw what she said.
365 days of purposeful pursuit
personal vision planning
power points
(1) When you hear yourself say the wrong thing, apologize to
God and replace your words.
(2) Purposefully prophecy or speak positive affirmations and
TRUTH about your future.
(3) You may still think negative until you grow in this area,
but don’t let it come out of your mouth.
The can’t go wrong BONUS
(4) Make a list of 3-5 positive confessions about your goal.
~ 29 ~
creating a vision board/book
Be very careful, then, how you livenot
as unwise but as wise,
making the most
of every opportunity, because the days
are evil.
Ephesians 5 : 15,16 KJV
365 days of purposeful pursuit
creating a vision board/book
If you can’t see it, you probably won’t say it or live it. You
must see it.
How do you do this? You do this with a vision book or a
vision board.
In this new year are you interested in….
Driving for Uber or Lyft?
Mending a broken relationship?
Helping a single parent family?
Starting a scholarship fund?
Becoming a Youtuber?
Starting a podcast?
It’s time to get your vision board/vision book made. Get to a
vision party ASAP so that you can get support, get
connected, get motivated, and become accountable.
This will take sacrifice.
Pray to obey (This is not a want or suggestion, this is a
NEED). We must stop hitting snooze and do what God tells
~ 31 ~
us to do. You’ve heard the saying, “To get what you’ve never
had, you have to do what you’ve never done.” Maybe you
have this excuse, “God knows what I’ve been through.” Yes,
He does. Listen, we owe Him everything. He owes us
nothing. He chose to give us the right to overcome anything
that has happened. We partner with Him when we pray to
obey.
Stop throwing a fit when things don’t work out and ask God,
“What does this mean?” In other words, enjoy this short rap
I wrote for this:
“Stop throwing a fit,
and learn from it!”
Slow down doing things for free and discount. Unless this is
just a hobby…. Do you want this as an income replacement
or just a hobby? Maybe you haven’t found the people you are
meant to serve yet, and you are still playing with your family
and friends. They may support you a little, but family and
friends are just that, support. They are not in your life to
sustain you financially.
365 days of purposeful pursuit
As you begin to find the people you serve, transition from
using your gifts as free and discount to pay. Let your family
and friends know. Perhaps you can have a family and friends
pricing and a customer pricing, but get thee a way to
monetize!
Get up earlier and stay up later, but also rest.
Why should you make these sacrifices?
Because if you don’t make these sacrifices, you will miss out
on your life! I just read these words on a post of someone I
follow who inspires me, “Die empty!” Do not live with all
this potential and die full, die empty! Pour yourself out.
Write those two words below: (Die empty)
___________________ ____________________
#truestory
I had heard of vision boards for years. I never took this
seriously. I finally decided after years of hearing this to put
one together. My faith has exploded. There really is
something to gathering pictures and inspirational quotes and
putting a “face” to the future you wish to create that you
believe is God’s plan for you. I look at the board every day.
I pray over it. It’s a rush!
Power Scriptures:
~ 33 ~
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s
will is.
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery.
Instead, be filled with the Spirit,
Ephesians 5 : 17, 18 NIV
Our real life, the dream life begins with a relationship with
Christ. It is by His Spirit living in you. We can continually
ask God for more of Him to fill us with His Spirit so that we
come under His influence in our thinking and speaking.
The most important thing you can do is invest in yourself-
invest in your emotional health, invest in your skill set, invest
in a coach, invest in the tools and technology you need, but
add to this the investment of having more of God and
WOW! You just added secret sauce! If you don’t have a
relationship with Christ, there is a prayer at the end of this
journal to get you started. If you already have a relationship
with Christ, then begin to ask God for more of Him to be
poured out into your life.
365 days of purposeful pursuit
We also invest in ourselves by the company we keep.
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of
fools suffers harm.
Proverbs 13 : 20 NIV
Connect with people who empower you to dream and be all
God wants you to be. Follow inspirational people on social
media. Build relationships with like-minded people. Join a
mastermind or group of people who will help you build your
skill set, network, and hold you accountable.
~ 35 ~
personal vision planning
power points
(1) Get a cork board or poster board or notebook from the
store, (Walmart, Dollar Store, Kroger)
(2) Fill the board with pictures, words, and quotes. It’s okay
to cut out letters to spell out words you need
(3) Post this in a place you can see it everyday
The can’t go wrong BONUS
(4) Purposefully go and look at your vision board/vision
book every day and pray over it. Work on something related
to this everyday--- be specific and add deadlines, not
everything should be December 31 of the following year- too
far away.
365 days of purposeful pursuit
the bigger picture
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of
God, that giveth to all men liberally, and
upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
James 1 : 5 KJV
~ 37 ~
We need God. He chooses to need us.
There is not only a good plan for your
life, there is a God plan for your life. He
created you with a specific purpose in
mind. You are choosing to accept this
plan by stepping out in faith into
unknowns, miracles, learning curves,
things that scare you, and connections
divinely in place for such a time as this.
You are called to the glory and the grind.
It’s time to find your moment!

specific goal planning
Now that you have written your purpose, a plan for spending
time with God each day and answered questions about your
purpose, it’s time to get to the grind. You are setting goals
for your goals. A monthly calendar is included to help you be
consistent and stay focused over the next twelve months.
You can prayerfully go through each area and then add your
own for a specific goal, specific plan of action, specific target
date, and a specific end-result. After you fill in each section
find a picture and words to represent this on a vision board
or vison book. If there is an area that does not resonate with
you, skip this section and continue. There is space for you to
add your own.
Define
Goal: What specifically do you want to happen?
Grind: What actions steps will this take?
Groundbreaking date: What date do you have in mind for
this?
Glory: What does the end-result look like?
Welcome to your life! Yeah you! It’s time to set your goals.

A Letter to you the Reader
Dear Reader,
I am so proud of you. You have taken the first step
toward the first days of the rest of your life. If you
follow through and I believe you will, God is going
to do far above your expectations.
This life is temporal. You have one shot to be all
God intended for you to be. There is a great plan
ahead for you despite the fight you’ve had to endure
to get here. If you want to make it worth the fight,
then go forth and be great by doing you!
To overcome the obstacles, you must face your
fears, accept God’s love for you, and trust His
timing. It’s okay to start small. It’s okay to fail.
You may have to get back up several times before
you see progress, but you will make it if you don’t
stop. I have prayed for you!
~ 81 ~
A Prayer for
Salvation
Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner. I have made
mistakes and desire for You to help me. I want to be
right with You. I know Jesus is the Son of God. I
believe He died for all my sins. I believe He rose
from the grave and will come again. Help me to
understand my Salvation. Guide me to a church
family to love me and for me to love in return. Help
me to know what my gifts are and give me
opportunities to glorify You. Deliver me from my
past life and help me to know You make all things
new. I want to be continually filled with Your Holy
Spirit. Teach me how to live each day for You.
Thank You for saving me. (Pray from your
heart now for your destiny
.
) Amen
