Do you have a clear vision that you know where to stand and what to stand for?
If you have a dream that isn’t clear, it won’t get you anywhere.
- How many times have you paused to consider all the things you want to accomplish in your life or contribute towards your community?
- Perhaps who you want to become?
- And how success might look for you?
Being a person who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind…. a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. (James 1:6; 8 MSG)
The introduction of single mindedness is defining it, as if you don’t know what your aim is, how will you achieve it?
Most times we don’t get what we want because we don’t know what we want.
- Think about how you can define your dream in both comprehensible and convincing detail.
Decide what you want
Instead of saying, ‘I want to do…’ replace this phrase with ‘I will begin by doing…’
For example, if you want to be a better leader, continually saying I need to lead in a better way won’t improve anything, but saying I am reading one book a week to improve my skills is a step towards ‘I will’.
Know that you might be unable to have every detail thought out when you commence, but your main goal is clear. Then keep working forward and as you move in that direction, things will unfold and you can make adjustments along the way.
Concentrating on one aim is the place to start at
We all know that it doesn’t require much effort for our minds to drift and set into a day dream.
However it requires great effort to set your mind to the task of developing a clear goal where you have a coherent and compelling dream.
Get the process underway by asking yourself these five (5) questions
Much of what we do is rooted in our experiences, circumstances, talents and opportunities.
- What am I feeling? (What your emotions tell you).
- What am I sensing? (What your intuition tells you).
- What am I seeing? (What is happening all around you).
- What am I hearing? (What are others saying).
- What am I thinking? (What does my intellect and common sense tell me).
This may happen instantly or take time to work out while you clarify and redraw the process. There is no option to give up, because if it seems too easy then perhaps you are not dreaming big enough. Continue to work on it and soon it will become clear.
Get a clear sense of where you are, what you know and what you want.
Then you are well on your way to understanding and embracing the very thing God put you on this planet to do!
Many of the biblical heroes and heroines didn’t discover their vision initially. A renowned example is Moses who spent two thirds of his life working out what God wanted him to do; doing things his own way and then failing.
Don’t lose heart
If you have a heart for God. And a vision from God . Like Moses – eventually you will succeed.
Whatever turns up, grab it and do it heartily! This is your last and only chance at it. For there’s neither work to do nor thoughts to think. In the company of the dead, where you’re most certainly headed. (Ecclesiastes 9:10 MSG)
