Do It Afraid! by Gwendolyn Young
I want to challenge you to get focused, see more clearly, and do something! Did you know that you have the power to make your life turn out exactly the way you want it? If you do, that’s great! If you are like most people (myself included) you either didn’t know it or you are just realizing it. Turn off the television, the cell phone, and close your eyes. Now imagine what you want your life to be like. Are you wealthy, famous, or wise? Are you happily married, have kids, or traveling the world? Where do you live, what kind of person are you, how is your health?
Have you reached the mountaintop of your industry, the big time CEO, the famous Author and/or Entertainer, a world renowned Chef, or the most sought after Child Psychologist? OR are you just wondering, wandering, and wavering through life? What do you want to be remembered for? If you can’t envision it, how can anyone else?
Vision is critical if you expect to do anything amazing in this life. It is the catalyst that guides you, inspires you, and forces you to make wise choices. The Bible tells us, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Without vision, you are throwing your life to the winds and allowing it to blow whichever way someone or something else dictates!
Let’s also remember that without action the vision means absolutely nothing. Vision requires that you write out how you see your life, set some goals around what you’ve written, and then work toward achieving those goals. YOU and what YOU do and sometimes DON’T do determines the end result. Have you opened your eyes yet, what do you see?
Go for it – play big – do it afraid!
In strategy & purpose.
