Personal Vision Statements deal more with your ideal vision of the future. Vision in this case is a reflection of your potential future. They are meant to help you define, emphasize and clarify your future goals. They are generally a sentence to a paragraph in length (think short). Think of what is important to you and where you want to be in the future; this should help you narrow down on what is truly important to you. As for an example of a vision statement, that is dependent on why you are creating one. Is it purely for you? For your resume (employers love these)? For school? This is another guiding force behind the vision statement, for it will change depending on the situation. I hoped this helped to get you started.
