I had a thought last night... Not necessarily a new idea but I really liked it.
Your vision is what will come to fruition.
In our lives, whether we make a conscious choice or an unconscious choice we embark on a path of the vision that we have for our lives.
Maybe you'll ask yourself... Where am I and how did I get here? Your intentions for your life are part of why you are where you are today in your life? Don't like it? Who are you going to blame? Look in the mirror. There's only one person that you can blame.
No matter what our circumstances are or have been we always have a choice. Even if it's just our attitude. As I've mentioned before, attitude can be (and maybe is) everything. Regardless, let's refocus on vision.
What are the things we tell ourselves we can't have? Are there things in our life that always seem just out of reach? Or maybe they seem WAY out of reach? Why are things this way? Who has said that they have to be? Do you believe that they are?
Your belief, your vision is why things are the way they are.
Get clear on your vision!
You've probably heard people tell you before that there are certain things that you're just going to have to accept in your life. For example, working without passion or love, at a dead-end job. It's just something that we've got to accept right? I have worked in these situations even though I never wanted to BUT... I ALWAYS believed that things would be different someday. Did I just wish and hope? No! I had to work at it. I had to be patient. I had to deal with personal and professional setbacks and frustrations. But in the back of my mind my vision and belief was that
I would achieve something more for myself both personally and professionally.
As I said before, get clear on your vision. Give yourself PERMISSION to get there... And... GO AFTER IT!
As always, Strive to Optimize!
