Vision is a thing! According to the dictionary, “Vision” is a noun. It is defined by the dictionary as the ability to see, or a supernatural experience of an apparition. Not all who have eyes have vision or an ability to see. Some of us are blind. Some have been blinded, and some have been blindsided. In each case, vision is impaired.
Success is limited or expanded by our vision.
John 11:40 “Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
Some of us are blind. Blindness, in this case, is a physical limitation that happened to that person. I am yet to hear of anyone choosing this physical limitation.This medical diagnosis, however, does not mean the blind person cannot have vision.
Science continues to develop technology today that opens up increasing options for the medically blind to be able to see. From braille technology to surgeries or new tech toys. There are some notable people who were medically blind but managed to demonstrate limitless vision. Stevie Wonder, Helen Keller, and Louis Braille are great examples.
Remember, vision is the ability to see, and our eyes are not the only way we can see. We can see with our mind, and this type of seeing is unlimited. Seeing with our eyes is limited to receiving what is there to be seen. It must be a material substance that can be seen. For example, the human eye cannot see the wind but we can perceive it when we see leaves flying and clouds moving. Seeing with our mind is limitless because of our ability to imagine is limitless.
Some of us are blinded. Again, being blinded can be something that happens to us, but in this case, some of us do make choices that move us to be blinded. Accidents happen, and some accidents are the result of a choice. I call these ‘accidents waiting to happen’. This is a conversation I have with my kids all the time. I ask them to rethink their actions because the possible outcome has high risks attached to them. Similarly, the Diabetic who ignores their health and continues in the behaviors that worsen their condition may be blinded and their actions may even be the catalyst for bringing that blindness on earlier in their life. This is a long, round-about way to say, our own actions can bring on our current blindness. It may not seem like we chose blindness in this case, but it was the outcome of our decisions or failure to decide. Being blinded can be temporary, and even that is our choice.
Mark 10:51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked. “My rabbi,” the blind man said, “I want to see!”
Some of us are blindsided.
Some us take a hit when we are already down, some of us take a hit we never saw coming. In this case, we were blindsided. This happens because of a vulnerability that someone takes advantage of (intentionally or not). Being prepared can lower our risk for this, but being blindsided is impossible to avoid. It is how we respond after that determines what happens next. Those with a compelling vision will find the strength to brush off and get back on track easier than those without vision.
Vision is crucial to success. The bigger the vision, the more the ‘gravitational pull’ toward achieving success.
A more popular version of that concept is – if you reach for the stars and miss you at least hit the tree tops – which is always better than staying on the floor.
A few years ago, I realized that I had a vision problem. If you ever heard of the ‘glass ceiling’ to success, let me tell you – it exists! For me, that ceiling was set firmly at $64,000. I came nose to glass with that ceiling while playing my first round of the Prosperity Game. If someone had told me I had that ceiling and that my success was limited because of it, I would have denied it vehemently – but I could not deny it when I saw my results in that game.
I repeated the game with an expanded mindset, but once again came nose to the glass with that ceiling around $150K. On round 3, I was able to see myself earning and deserving millions of dollars. I hope to have that dream manifest in my reality soon, but my inability to see it before made my having it impossible. Now, it is possible, and I welcome that day.
One way to avoid being blind, blinded, or blindsided in your pursuit of success is to create and regularly look at your Vision Board. I recently shared elements of my Vision Board on Facebook, and to my surprise, one of my responders asked me HOW to create a Vision Board. I guess I took that skill for granted. There are many ways to make your board, however, here is my strategy that I think is efficient and effective:
I visited my Vision Board this morning, as I often do. It was my joy to delete my goal of being on TV from that board. Being on TV was on my Vision Board for the past two years and I was on TV twice in the last two weeks with another show lined up to be aired on local cable in two weeks.
Having a Vision Board keeps your goals before you and is one of many important success strategies to move me along the Profit line. My ultimate vision is to be a #ProfitableSteward.I want to hear told to me what was outlined in Matthew 25:21, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!”
- I encourage you to play The Prosperity Game. It is an effective way to DREAM, then dream Bigger. Flesh your dream out and then have the content to transfer to your Vision Board later.
- Need to hear yourself think with OBJECTIVE FEEDBACK from me? Schedule a FREE Discovery Session with me. I guarantee you the gift of feeling heard and you will leave that conversation with resources to help you achieve your goal, even if we do not continue our relationship any further.
- Of course, you can also consider JOINING MY TEAM and being a part of the energy and structure I am a part of to build my Profitability and quality of life.
