The Key to Your Life is Finding a Vision That Imposes Discipline On YouGwen Witherspoon
Vision gives you the spark you need to endure any test, trial, or trauma. In every life, there will be many.
You can say, “I want a better job,” but you have to define what “better” is. It’s that blurry picture way out on the horizon. I imagine those dream sequences in movies. They are glowing and idealistic. So, even though your vision is impractical, it serves a vital purpose. Habakkuk 2: 2 says, “Write the vision, and make it plain.” Vision gives you the spark you need to endure any test, trial, or trauma. In every life, there will be many. Statistics for business success tells us that only 20% of new businesses will make it past their first year, and after five years, half of those will go out of business (usatoday.com). Those were pre-pandemic statistics. (Where’s the face palm emoji when you need it?) That tells me that there’s more failure than success, and any entrepreneur can attest that they are changed in the process.
The biggest change of all is that when your vision is tested–and it will be–you will learn something about perseverance. To pass the test, you will have to make a very important decision. Will you fold under the pressure? Or will you rise to the occasion? Your vision will help you make decisions. It will determine what you say yes to, and it will make the no’s much easier. Your focus will become keen, and you will be unstoppable. You are the one who can make your impractical schemes a reality.[/vc_column_text]
