Excerpt from Article 1, Build Your Vision
Our life is often a maze of paths taking us in different directions and the more paths we have the more difficult it is to choose the right one that will lead us to where we want to go. Countless times many people have taken the wrong path and have lived to regret it. In the end, they have given up hope of ever coming to grips with their decisions. They fail to decide, plan, or map out their path for fear of making a wrong choice.
It appears that we have now become impulsive creatures latching onto the push and pull of the prevailing winds or we follow the crowd on whichever road they are taking. We have left the task of making choices to those outside ourselves.
We end up seeking guidance elsewhere because we have not taken the time to establish our own path. When we lack sight we give the responsibility to others to guide us. Even those who are physically blind have cloaked themselves with their own responsibility to get them to where they want to go.
Vision is the ability to see beyond today and to paint a clear picture of what you want tomorrow to look like. It is the ability to think about and plan for the future using a vivid imagination coupled with wisdom. It is a mental picture of the result you want to achieve, coming from the future to inform and energize the present.
Take some quiet time to describe what your life would look like in the next five years, detail the image of the future in your mind whether that is about your business, work, or relationships.
Your vision acts as your map, just like a GPS it shows you where you are and where you want to go and the path you should take to get there.
