What Do You See?
“It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision.” Hellen Keller
For those of you who don’t know this amazing woman; she was the first deaf and blind person to receive a bachelor of arts degree.
How she accomplished this being deaf and blind is a total inspiration to us all.
It should challenge, motivate and inspire all of us to cast a significant vision for our lives.
The picture above is looking at something much more powerful than physical vision.
It’s looking at your personal vision.
Your ability to dream and create.
Your capacity as an inventor, thinker to see beyond the reality.
To look into the future.
I love the works of Michelangelo, so take some time mediate on how profound this personal quote is…
“In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it.”
Isn’t that artistic vision?
Let me get right to the point.
Please, don’t complain to me that you don’t have enough money.
Or that your lifestyle is not what you want it to be.
That you can’t spend the time you want with those that you love.
Or anything else you desire in this lifetime.
I won’t ask you what you are actually doing…
I’ll ask you what your vision looks like.
Resources follow vision.
If you are not motivated enough, your vision for your life is not large enough.
The universe has a way of resourcing anything you want, only if you can be brave enough to dream it.
So what do you see now?
Where will you be on the 25th of December 2014?
How much money will you be earning?
What will your relationships look like?
What about the year 2020?
And so forth…
I am thankful that Thomas Edison saw a world of artificial light.
That the Wright Brothers dreamt of flying.
And that Alexander Fleming thought of the idea of combatting disease with penicillin.
They were all artists in their own right.
Like Michelangelo, seeing something beautiful before it exists.
So to finish, I leave you with one of my greatest challenges…
What do you see?
