If you are reading this right now, you have most likely taken the Unique Contribution Workshop. And most of you have discovered what your Vision for your life and the world is.
Vision is what matters most to us in life. It is our compass, our true north. It is one of the most important things that we can ever know in life, which is why I have committed my life to help people find it.
Why is it so important to know your Vision?
Because without a Vision, we lose our way, we become aimless and confused and eventually become hopeless, disappointed in life, all of which can be a slippery slope that leads to depression and despair.
So why don’t more of us meditate on our Vision day and night? Why don’t we create strategic plans and goals from a place of our Vision that we are committed to? Why don’t we create core values and culture in our business and relationships that inform and communicate to others exactly what our Vision is, that iOne Thing that matters most to us?
After being in that very conversation and addressing that conversation for over a decade, I came face to face once again with my own realization of why we seem to avoid being honest and forthright in believing for our Vision, it’s because it’s SCARY.
It’s scary to even admit what we want most in life to ourselves, let alone meditate and pray on it, let alone tell friends, employees, etc. what we care most about.
Why is it so scary?
Because our Vision is also our greatest place of pain.
It is the one place that caused disappointment and many times great trauma and pain in our lives. We live so much of our lives either running from the thing we want most or facing it head on and being committed to doing whatever it takes to achieve it.
In the past month I have come face to face with both scenario’s: feeling the pain of the loss of my Vision, to pushing through AND having the COURAGE to stand and say what I want most, to experiencing the pain of possibly not getting it again, to in the end realizing the incredible growth and manifestation of fighting for my Vision.
I am sure most of you can relate to the above.
But here is what I have learned: I would rather feel the pain of disappointment of not quite obtaining the optimum level of the thing that matters most to me, than settling for what I know deep in my heart is not God’s best for my life.
We are made for the fight, we are meant for the battle.
The question we all must ask ourselves is, if we were meant for the fight, what is the ONE THING in your life that is worth fighting for? What is the ONE THING you care most about in life?
If you stay with it, you WILL see change, you WILL begin to see growth and manifestation in the things you care most about. Creating the life you love WILL be hard, but as my daughter always says, "Pick Your Hard" because eventually, you will BECOME the change you desire most in life.
Cheers to the journey and continuing to choose your hard every day!
