Vision is a mental picture of the desired future. You need a vision for you to be able to reach your destination in life. Whatever has not crossed your mind cannot become your portion in life. it is impossible to achieve in life what your heart cannot conceive. Conception is what brings about delivery. Anything you desire in this life can become your own if only you can see it coming. The larger your vision, the greater your success and achievement. Begin to see beyond your present challenges and they will become stepping stones to your glory. Wake up and stop living in the valley of life. There is a place for you at the top if only you can see.
Your achievement in life does not depend on your parents, friends, brothers, sisters, and not even your education. There are some highly educated people in life who have failed woefully not because they never attended a college but as a result of the lack of concrete and authentic vision for their lives.
If you cannot be limited by your mind, then you cannot be limited in life. The reason why many people fail in life is because of failure and an inferiority mindset.
Here are 5 reasons why vision is necessary for a successful living
1. Vision guarantees destiny fulfilment
“A man without a vision is a man without a future. A man without a future will always return to his past.” P. K. Bernard.
Vision is the mental picture of the desired future, so therefore the absence of vision gives birth to a dead future. You cannot just arrive at a tomorrow that you never pictured or plan for.
2. Vision keeps your hope alive
“Vision is the Source and hope of life. The greatest gift ever given to mankind is not the gift of sight, but the gift of vision. Sight is a function of the eyes; vision is a function of the heart. ‘Eyes that look are common, but eyes that see are rare.’ Nothing noble or noteworthy on earth was ever done without vision.” Myles Munroe
There can be no hope without vision. When a man lacks vision, he becomes hopeless because vision is what keeps hope alive.
3. Vision brings about purpose fulfilment
“If you can tune into your purpose and really align with it, setting goals so that your vision is an expression of that purpose, then life flows much more easily.” Jack Canfield.
It is difficult to fulfil your purpose in life without vision.
4. Vision imparts creativity
“A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.” Denis Waitley’
People of vision are highly creative in life.
5. Vision brings happiness
“The man who radiates good cheer, who makes life happier wherever he meets it, is always a man of vision and faith.” Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Lack of knowledge of the future brings about doubt and uncertainties which ends in frustration but a person that have a clear picture of where he is going will not be distracted by obstacles on the way. Ultimately a person of vision is given to excitement and happiness because he has the destination view.
