‘Success is not a native of anywhere. It settles where it is welcomed ’_’Divine-Royalty’
You cannot awake the greatness in you without seeing a big picture. As long as you have a WANT, you have a reason for living. Satisfaction is death. Vision is one of the most powerful ways we can breathe life into effort. It’s seeing future ahead, action is working for it and to bring that future into reality, but the size of your vision determine how great!
When you see something in your mind eye and hold the vision before you of what’s possible for the future, it mobilizes you to action. It gives you something to work towards.
Too many people have a vision of themselves that is simply too infantile. Their vision is limited by what other people think, by what other people believe, or by their limited exposure to people with bigger visions.
If I may ask, ‘how many millionaire barbers or security do we have in history?’ How can a young growing person say that he want to be a barber or work as a security? I better become a savant to a man who is dealing on motor spare parts than to be a barber or to work as security.
To have a bigger vision of yourself, you have to dream bigger. You have to give yourself the permission to imagine yourself as being something greater, something beyond anything you are presently. Freeing yourself to dream big allows you to create the ideas, to build the plans, and to create the goals necessary to achieve your bigger vision of yourself. The limit of your imagination is the only real boundary to what you are capable of. Your vision is the starting point to creating the success that you desire. It is your roadmap that gets you from where you are to where you want to be.
So, until you use your God giving imagination to create something through the big picture you have captured with your vision, set a goal and play action you will settle in ordinary. If you can’t see 25 years or more ahead from now and start now working on it;. You will remain as nobody and blaming the world around you. Your choice determines how your future will be. Most of the time, our vision doesn’t exceed the vision of the people with whom we spend our time. Spending your time with people who have small visions of themselves will rub you; they never expect you to be a bigger than they are, and they never challenge you. Challenging something bigger frightens the mediocre, it makes them uncomfortable. And they never want you to challenge them.
Taking control of your vision means to wrestle and follow that big picture you have captured without letting others who are comfortable with their smaller vision to overrule you or diversion it. Many people around you want to keep you small because they are afraid of losing you. They are afraid that you might forget them. But those that truly love you will risk losing you; they will want you to be the best you can be.
Fight for what you like or what you don’t like will take place. Life will not give you what you want but what you deserve. It will be late when your bone is weak. There will be a time you will not be strong to do what you can do now! Do something now! I am not against one becoming a Barber, or working as security, but don’t do it to die in it. Build money in it and pursue big goal. Only having a clear vision from where you are now and set a goal with deadline will put You on the run. Vision will help you to overcome obstacles on the way and helps you hold on when times are tough to become tougher.
A vision that is well defined helps you to focus and create a purpose that becomes your measurement for your success. If you do not have a vision of who you want to be, how do you want to succeed or what you want out of life? You begin to lack drive and your life becomes just an order of events. A strong and current vision connects with your passions and greatest potentials. Regardless of what is going on in the world or challenges that present themselves, a vision helps you know what and why you are doing the things you are doing.
Having a vision is most important in the path of your success in life. You feel much more valuable as a person when you set and achieve visions and goals. Who do you want to be? Your vision should include who you want to be. It is important to know clearly who you are right now to know who you want to become. This includes your habits, attitudes, and points of view. If you are unclear about yourself, you will be unclear about your future. The destination of your vision should be emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual. When you create a successful vision, you begin to feel passionate about it.
The only way to be successful in your vision is to visualize it (see it again and again) and set goals and a plan of action to reach your vision. Over time, you will begin to see more parts of your vision coming true until one day you see yourself living your vision. A vision is the capability to see beyond your current reality, creating and inventing what does not now exist and becoming what you are not right now. A vision is important in all aspects of life; physically, emotional, corporately. Building your vision does not have to be difficult as long as you know exactly what it is you see for yourself in the future. Have a successful life journey
