Write down Your Vision


Where there is no vision, the people perish, warned King Solomon (Proverbs 29:18 KJV). It is almost impossible to succeed without having a clear vision. Ask yourself some life-defining questions: What is it that you want to become, do and have in life? Imagine celebrating your 60th birthday and someone is asked to introduce you to a hall, packed with guests who have come to celebrate your success. What do you want the person to say about your life, your achievements and contributions to society?

A vision is a well thought-out mental picture of the beautiful future you want to see manifest. It is the first creation of your life that becomes the blueprints that must guide the course of your life. Everything is created twice: first in the mind, then in reality. If you can clearly and explicitly design your future in your mind, you can manifest it if you develop a plan of action that you implement.

Once you have your future designed in your mind, write it down. We are advised to “write down the vision” (Habakkuk 2:2). If you can’t clearly articulate it on paper, you will find it tough to remember it, let alone achieve it. As you think about your future, reflect on the following questions:

1. If you had no worries about money (imagine you had more than enough, an abundance of money); What would you rather be doing with your life six days a week, that you would do gladly, joyfully, with full dedication and with a wide smile on your face?

2. What kind of a legacy would you want to leave behind when your life is over? What would you like the history books to record about your life?

3. What specific contributions would you like to make to the development of humanity? What projects would you desire to initiate and finance in your lifetime?

4. What kind of lifestyle would you like to have? What kind of house would you like to live in? Where should the house be? What kind of cars would you like to be driving? What kind of clothes and shoes do you want to have in your wardrobes?

5. What is the minimum monthly income (in Dollars) that would make it possible for you to live the life of your dreams?

There are more questions you need to ask yourself as you develop your personal vision. As you can see from the questions above, your vision should not be just about YOU and your family. Real success in life is when you touch other people’s lives positively. Aim to make significant contributions to the development of humanity. Take time, write down the entire life you want to lead. Think of it as writing your own movie script, where you are the main actor. What kind of a movie should your life be? A comedy, action, horror (I hope not!), classic? Design your own life and live it out!
