“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”
Proverbs 29:18 KJV
If you must succeed in life, you must be a man of vision. There must be a goal that you are aiming at; otherwise, you will drift around aimlessly and in the final analysis, you’ll get nothing. Always stay focused on your vision without wavering. For instance, where do you want your business or career to get to this year?
Vision will sustain you even when the storms come. Joseph was sustained by the dream he had even in a foreign land. A man of vision is a man of purpose and is unstoppable. Don’t join the company of those who believe that what will be, will be. If you don’t have a clear vision for where you are going, this is the best time to retrace your steps, write one down and you would be glad you did.
Another nugget for success is thinking big. You are only as big as your thought. If you think small, you will be small. But if you think big, you will achieve greatness. The Bible talks about many ordinary people whose feats made them extraordinary. They dared to do the impossible and the God of possibilities made it possible for them. If you do not dream, there is nothing for God to say ‘amen’ to.
Challenges do not mean that you have reached the end of the road. What you call a mountain today can simply be a stepping stone to greater heights. Challenges are part of life. So when they come, don’t be discouraged. Speak to yourself and say: this too shall pass away. Proverbs 24:16 says that “the righteous man falleth seven times and rises again.” Falling repeatedly is allowed as we move along in life. If you are ashamed to fall in life, you will never attempt anything; if you don’t attempt anything, you’ll get nothing in life. Don’t let the fear of failure keep you in bondage. Failure is not a failure because you failed; rather, it is because you refused to get up.
