The trial period of 2020 is near. I know everyone has 20/20 vision this year but just how clear is your vision? For the past few years I’ve witnessed people making vision boards at the beginning of the year. I always looked and thought “oh that’s cute” but never paid it much attention. A few weeks ago I received an invitation to a vision board party that one of my friend’s were hosting. I saw this as a chance to get out and hang with my girls for a bit without my kids. I never expected to really take anything from the night but I did…
The theme of the party was “Make it Plain Habakkuk 2:2.” If you’re unfamiliar with this scripture, then here you go:
“And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.”
Simply put, having a vision is vital and valuable. Trust in God and your vision and watch God go to work for your life. But just because you have a vision doesn’t mean that you don’t have to put any work in. I know, I know. It’s tough as hell trying to work towards your goals/visions at times. We may start out with a vision of “I want to start a business” but then we get a little lost with “how” to make that vision come true. Take your goals and break them down little by little. If one of your goals is to get back in the gym then start small. Take the stairs instead of the elevator for a week. Do a quick 15-25min workout at home thanks to the Nike Training app. Buy yourself a cute workout outfit as motivation to show it off in your future gym selfies. Catch my drift? Start small then work your way up.
Here are a few tips on how to stay on track and fulfill your vision.
Identify your Vision and write it down.
Baby your Vision.
Find a Mentor.
Make a Plan and Execute it.
Don’t be too hard on yourself.
Remember, everything takes work and determination. Just because you hit a roadblock or you aren’t achieving your goals quick enough doesn’t mean that you’ve failed. Be kind to yourself and never give up on your vision. If you give up then how do you expect God to help you bring your vision to life? Remember, write your vision, make it plain.
