Who you see is who you will be. ~ BrotherWord
Vision without action is no more than a dream. Dreams are the beginning of aspirations, illuminating, invigorating, a oftentimes, inspiring. However, a dream that is not followed by work shall forever remain dormant. Dreams are important, but vision is vital. Think of your vision as your blueprint to your destiny and it all revolves around how you see yourself.
Vision is cast as we live in the moment. Sounds crazy, a bit off doesn’t it? How do I prepare for the future and thrive in the present at the same time? How am I supposed to plan for tomorrow if I am supposed to concentrate and focus on today. Think of it as a road trip. You know your destination, where you are trying to get to, but how to get there is the key. Like a map, so is your life. Devise a plan, anticipate roadblocks and traffic, navigate the roads, look both ways, stay alert, and pray for traveling grace. In order to reach your destination, you first have to get into your vehicle (live the dream); start the engine (become fired up about the possibilities); buckle up (the road may get rough and there will be setbacks along the way); make sure the tank is full (pour into your dream and surround yourself with a team that will pour into you as well); and finally, began to accelerate (get moving and start making strives toward accomplishing all you have set out to achieve). In no time, you will reach your destination.
The subconscious is the mirror to the soul and the eyes are its windows. How you see yourself, how you perceive your worth and purpose, will ultimately determine if you reach your destination. We already know that everyone may not align with, support, or last as we make our journey, but we can never forget who we are or why we are doing it. If your subconscious is the mirror, be willing to look within, search your soul for clarity, direction, and courage, and know without a shadow of a doubt that the only person who can steer the course of your life, is the one staring back at you in the mirror. Be willing to dig deep and pull out your best! Let your eyes be the windows to opportunity, open and inviting, and the barriers to block anything unwanted and undesired. But don’t be deceived either by what you see. Remember the grass is not always as green as it may appear and there are no shortcuts despite how enticing either may seem. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Remain faithful that your vision will come to fruition. Who you see is who you will be and when your vision aligns with your work ethic, the reflection will be a magnificent sight to behold.
“Start strong, stay strong, and finish strong by always remembering why you’re doing it in the first place.” ~ Ralph Marston
None of what you have accomplished thus far will matter if you do not see it through. The quickest way to failure is through quitting. Finish what you start! You started because you have a purpose to fulfill, a destination to arrive at, and goals in mind. There is more to finishing than just completing the task, so make sure you finish as strong as you started.
The road may get treacherous, but that’s the beauty in travel. Treacherous roads teach survival and navigation skills, and as we travel down these roads we discover what we are truly made of. Each road brings with it a certain degree of difficulty, a new challenge, but if you turn around before you reach the end, how will you ever know what awaits you.
The road less traveled is for the brave! This road was designed for those willing to accept their calling, strong enough to face the challenges ahead, and focused on finishing. Finishing builds character and fortitude and every time you finish and complete a task, you gain strength and confidence. Finishing just like quitting becomes a character trait. Which one do you choose?
So finish strong, muster every ounce of energy and ability to accomplish what you set out to achieve. No matter how long the race or how grueling the battle, the victor is the one who finishes and does not give up! Your race has already begun. Do you stay the course and finish strong or quit before you reach the finish line?
“Starting strong is good. Finishing strong is epic! ~ Robin Sharma”
As I travel on this journey called life, I find myself at a fork in the road;
One wrong turn could spell disaster, one right turn could pave the streets gold.
But is it really about rights and wrongs; Or more about lessons learned.
It’s said the journey is greater than the destination, navigating muddy waters can pose complications, but I chose to use it all as motivation.
Too many positives to let the negatives hold me back;
I was built with a purpose and a passion, the ability to overcome and succeed, I have the tools to defend against any attack.
Far from easy and the terrain is treacherous;
but I’ve never met a foe I couldn’t defeat and I’ve always been adventurous.
It’s Thankful Thursday! Remember, life is all about what you make of it. Don’t let your situation dictate your destination. Similar to school, we are tested to achieve greater knowledge, better understanding, and to gain the tools needed to tackle life. If you are being tested, be THANKFUL, because it’s only preparation for your future!
