A vector is a navigational term describing both the direction and magnitude of a moving object. Direction identifies the end point and the course the object must follow to reach its desired destination. Magnitude speaks to those factors, such as wind or weather that can influence the object’s ability to stay on course. Moving into your major life purpose will require you to overcome obstacles such as fear and unbelief while correcting some patterns of distorted thinking. Awareness and understanding of your direction and magnitude is a necessity for getting to where you want to go.

To navigate effectively, you start with a clear beginning and end point. Then, once you get underway on your journey, it is extremely helpful to pause and check your vector, which determines your current position and confirms you are still on the desired course. This becomes even more critical when the storms of life hit, which can cloud one’s ability to see the course initially set forth. Pausing to regroup, identify and break through those obstacles frees us up to refocus and either continue on our present course or establish a new one.

VectorCheck uses a navigational technique called triangulation, which uses three points of reference, or waypoints, to help you develop a foundational understanding of your beginning point, which is your unique personal design. A waypoint is a fixed location with a specified longitude and latitude. For example, natural waypoints may include rock formations or a lake. Artificial waypoints may include buoys, lighthouses or carins.

Regarding one’s personal design, the three waypoints used include: Passion, Preferences and Abilities. These reference points can be applied individually, but are most effective when understood collectively as you begin to identify the themes that weave across the three tools.
