Did you know you can have 20/20 vision?
I’m not necessarily talking about having 20/20 vision in your physical eyeballs. I’m talking about having 20/20 vision when it comes to your goals and the vision for your life.
If you study the lives of successful people, you’ll notice that they all have one thing in common—they each have a clear vision. They know what they want and are willing to commit to doing whatever it takes to make it happen. They may not have had the education, money, time, or support when they started, but they had a strong, clear vision of where they wanted to end up.
The Bible gives a lot of examples of people who had a clear vision, and even when they encountered significant adversity, they still achieved their goals. Joshua and Caleb are great examples. They never gave up their dream of getting into the Promised Land, even though it took 40 years. What about David? He found out there was a prize for killing Goliath, and just to make sure, he asked twice, “What will be given to the guy who defeats this giant?” He got a clear vision of what the reward was going to be! Or, how about Jesus? He’s the ultimate example of someone who had a clear vision. And even in the face of incredible opposition, He kept his eyes fixed on His goal and that held Him steady all the way to the end!
How about you? Do you have a 20/20 vision for your life? Do you have clear goals that you want to obtain or achieve? They don’t have to be big goals; just have some kind of goals. If you want to achieve anything in life, you have to have “20/20 vision.”
You can’t have blurry vision and expect to reach your goals. You must have a clear vision in order to know where you’re going and what you want to accomplish.
Having 20/20 vision requires being specific and intentional about your goals. Successful people all have one thing in common—they have a clear vision.
One of the best ways to get a clear vision is to write it down. Keep it simple. Make a bullet point list of goals. Then, for each goal, determine a few action steps to get you started on your way. You don’t have to have all the steps at once, just take the first steps, then add the next steps as you go along. Consistently keep track of your progress and keep your goals in front of you.
