“Where there is no vision the people perish.”
This famous proverb is true on so many different levels. Without vision, there is little to inspire someone to get off of the couch. There is no beacon to help make the way through difficult times. There is magnification of the small stuff, instead of seeing the big picture. What is your vision?
I have a vision to make a million lives better. This is what drives my activities. It’s why I blog. It’s why I write books.It’s why I share my message of health. It’s why I share my message of “The Process.” It’s why I am constantly thinking about what I can create that can help others in life and in my business. I am certainly not a saint. I would love to be able to write here that I am purely altruistic all the time, but that would be untrue. I am a human being and I too get caught up in selfish thinking, and little things that drive me crazy (that shouldn’t). However, having this vision helps to keep me grounded. It helps me to come back from selfish thinking much more quickly than in my past. What is your vision?
I can honestly say that I am not sure how my vision is going to come about. I know what I think and what I do, but truly…I am just a man with a vision who is trying my best. BUT, having said this, my vision has me constantly striving. It keeps me consistently doing what I know works, while I work on new ideas. Having a vision allows me to be open to possibilities to improve and keeps me from being stuck in “thats just the way it is thinking” or “this is the way I’ve always done it thinking.” What is your vision?

My approach is genuine. I love to help others. There are few things in the world that feel better to me. Ironically, this is one place where selfishness is an attribute. If it is selfish to want to feel good and to achieve it by helping others, than this is how I want to be selfish. Of course I have personal desires and needs, but it is true that if you help enough other people get what they want, you will get what you need. I believe that if I help a million people, I’ll probably do okay too…its been true so far, so I am guessing it will be true to an even greater extent, in the future. What is your vision?
I’m serious about this vision question. What it your vision? How do you want your life to look? What impact do you want to make in this world?
You are unique and special. You were placed on this earth to make a contribution with your gifts. Don’t let a lack of vision keep you from making a difference. Don’t let adversities, and the small thinking of those around you hold you back. Create your vision and work faithfully towards this bigger picture and enjoy the amazing journey of life that is part of having a vision that is bigger than self.
