Cherish Your Vision
Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements. -Napoleon Hill
We all have a vision of what we would like our lives to look like. I am not talking about what you think about if you hit the multimillion-dollar lottery ticket. We of course have those as well. The lavish, even materialistic lifestyle we imagine when we allow ourselves to take a break from the everyday. I am talking about what we think about when we imagine a better life for our family, a better living situation, a better job, or even a better relationship with someone. Those visions are important.
I want to implore you not to toss them aside but to make a plan. What would it take to make that vision a reality? Break it down into small, attainable steps. Make it realistic for where you are in life. You are worth the effort. I am not saying it is going to be easy by any means. It will require hard work from you, but it is work that is worth it. It is work that feeds your soul.
I don't say all this is some vacuum of achievement as though I am some guru that has accomplished all of my wildest desires. This message is for me as well. I have a vision that I am constantly regrouping and working towards. When I am not working on it, I feel regular. I am grinding on that hamster wheel just like you. However, when I am making moves and doing things to get me closer to my vision, I feel invigorated even if I have not accomplished it. The act of working towards it gives me a sense of forward motion.
This forward motion will help you with feelings of loneliness, stress, and fulfillment. It is not of course a cure-all but it is about baby steps in this journey of life. I know it is completely cliche to say enjoy the journey but life is the journey. The final destination is when you stop living, whether physically in death or mentally in spirit. Do not waste the journey. Savor it. Work it. Revel in it. Enjoy it. We only take one trip and you are worth all the effort required to make it one hell of a ride.
