Your Vision

Tags : 

You imagine the best sunset you ever saw. The day you look in the mirror and see slim, trim, and fit. The day you obtain a promotion, raise, or new job that comes with exactly the prestige, perks, and salary you’ve worked so hard to obtain. You may visualize good fortune for you, your family, and your friends. You may picture that long overdue vacation, a new car, or a dream home.


Vision is very clear for some people, others not so much. Often behind the vision is a well-structured plan, or for some there is not. Some people obtain their vision, and others do not.

When the plan fails, there is a chance so will the energy, excitement, and confidence that your vision will appear. But the ensuing shut down, shut out, or blow out that may happen only happens to those who don’t plan for the unplanned. Because often it is not about what you planned for, but how you’ve planned to adjust.

Plans will not always happen on time, at the right time, or just in time. It may not happen when you need it, when you want it, or when you said it would be done. Not everyone will celebrate or appreciate what it took for your vision to become reality. People will come and people will go. Some will stay friends and some will move on. Promises will be kept and others lost. Directions will change and paths won’t cross.

The secret to achieving your vision doesn’t come from the best laid plan; it will come from knowing how to respond to everything about your plan that was unplanned.
