Vision may be one of the most redemptive things in the human psyche. Not physical, seeing-with-one’s-eyes vision, but the deeper ability to visualize the way things ought to be or the way you want things to be. Vision is not the same as dreaming. It is much more important and life-changing. When we have an idea (a vision) of what we want our future to look like, our minds and our spirits work to make that vision a reality. The clearer our vision is, the more we deeply desire the vision to be, the more likely that it will. It is vision that gives us creative energy to move toward a goal and to reach milestones along the way. It is vision that motivates and sustains us and gives us the will to keep going. It is the lack of vision that makes us wanderers through our world – directionless and feeling a lack of purpose.
Each person has the ability and the responsibility to establish his or her own vision, to maintain it, to bring it constantly into clearer focus – to make it reality.
Today – Try to visualize your life five years from now – then ten years. What do you think it will look like if you do nothing? What do you WANT it to look like. Click the shutter of your mind and lock that vision in. Bring it into focus, tack it up on your bulletin board, keep it ever before you. Your vision can become solid.
