Flex Your Vision Muscles
What have you done today to make your vision a reality? If you said nothing then one of two things are happening. The first possibility is that you do not have a vision. The second is you have not shared your vision in a way that other people believe it.
If you don’t have a vision, ask yourself why that is. Where will you be in five years? Ten? How can your compass point you in the right direction if you do not know where you are going? Let’s start with a simple excersize. Where will you be in an hour? How are you going to get there? What will it be like when you get there? Imagine the sensation of arriving to your location. It does not matter where it is. Is it cold? Imagine any smells that will be there. Don’t quit thinking about it until you have convinced yourself you have experience the sensation of your vision.
Your vision is now a reality in your paradigm. It is your destiny to be at that location and experience the sensation you had just as you imagined them. Now that you know what the end location will be like you have an idea of what need to be done to get there. What is the last step you will take before you arrive there? Imagine that just as you imagined you final destination. Then imagine the step before that and the step before. Keep creating your vision all the way to the point that you are now in your present state. You have now connected your future reality to your current reality.
You have deemed yourself the master of your own destiny. Now all you have to do is take action on the reality you have dreamed up for yourself. You know what is going to happen, just follow that plan. Will you be going to the gym? Having dinner with your family? Practice this daily. Make to envision and create your future. If you do not do this on a regular basis then you will become a product of the other forces around you. Don’t neglect your gift of free will. The ability to be self-aware and to make true what we think is what separates us from the animals. Now what was that vision? When you created it did it feel in sync with your internal compass? Do you think it contributed to fulfilling your purpose and mission in life? If not then you are wasting your time. You are putting off what you are really meant to do. Take your thought now to recreate this one hour vision until it feels congruent with your compass. For instance, perhaps you thought about play a game of basketball but your mission in life is to help the underprivileged. Combine these two create a third alternative. When you play basketball make sure they outcasts or athletic players are not the last ones picked. Do you what you love and combine it with what is important. This will take a good deal of creativity but the dividends are well worth the investment.
