I have heard it said that living out of our vision is more powerful than living out of our circumstance. Holding on to a vision invokes the circumstances by which the vision is achieved. Vision is content; material circumstances mere form. ~ Marianne Williamson (A Return to Love) ~
Too often we let the circumstances of life control our destiny. We don’t have control over everything that happens to us, but we can learn to act and react. This helps us to remain unaffected by circumstance. We can believe and have confidence if we have the understanding of the sovereignity of God in our lives. He has complete and total independent control over every creature, event and circumstance.
Having a vision is having the wisdom to see past events in expectation of a greater outcome. To hold onto our vision of what our life is supposed to be, we need to focus on what we can control. Create what you want to be. Paint a mental image of that vision to help you understand what it is you really want. Don’t allow yourself to become ditracted from your goal. Don’t expect a clear vision to happen overnight. Determining the course you will follow requires time and reflection. Think about what you want, not on what you don’t want. Focus on your dreams, not what others expect of you.
Think about where you are now and where you want to be in the future. The journey towards your vision is just as important as the destination. To move forward with your vision, you need to maintain a good attitude and pray that you are able to see things God’s way instead of your own.
“Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets. Judge not by their words, but accept advice based on the evidence of actual results. Do not be surprised should you find a complete absence of anything mystical or miraculous in the manifested reality of those who are so eager to advise you. Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience.” ~ Anthon St. Maarten ~
“The first step toward creating an improved future is developing the ability to envision it. VISION will ignite the fire of passion that fuels our commitment to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to achieve excellence. Only VISION allows us to transform dreams of greatness into the reality of achievement through human action. VISION has no boundaries and knows no limits. Our VISION is what we become in life. ” ~ Tony Dungy ~
