Vision – Why Let a Lack of it Prevent You from Living the Abundant Life of Your Dreams?
How to Catch the Vision and Run with it into Your Dream Life!
It takes vision if you want to move from…
your present standard of living to –
living your abundant dream life.
A continual focus on…
past problems and defeats,
will only result in fearful paralysis;
and that takes you nowhere.
Where’s Your Focus?
As of today, choose to stop looking at all the things that can go wrong, and instead turn your eyes toward your strengths and assets. Put your focus on what must go right to reach your goals and dreams. Wake up in the morning and go to bed at night, thinking only of ways to do the things you want to do. Do not allow yourself to waste time thinking of all the reasons why you cannot do something.
Kick-start your vision and think repeatedly of the many achievements you are going to accomplish in the future; which will be greater than anything you have ever done in the past. Once you get your focus in the right direction, you’ll find yourself forced to draw upon resources that you previously didn’t even realize you had.
Will You Take the Risk?
Clearly, change is going to involve some risk-taking on your part. But believe me, once you dare to act on your vision and reach toward your dreams, it won’t be long before you start winning in a big way.
Doing things you’ve never done before may prove to be frightening at first. Just keep in mind: Anyone who achieves anything of greatness in their life first takes some kind of risk. Others may not be able to catch the same vision that you have and you’ll find it takes a measure of risk to follow your vision through to your dreams.
Vision of a Dream Life
What is your dream? What vision or picture of a great thing or accomplishment floats to the surface of your consciousness from time to time?
Begin to make your dream a reality by writing it down with as much detail as possible. Write it in the present tense and see yourself as already living it.
“Write the vision, and make it plain, that he may run that reads it.”
— Habakkuk 2:2
Remember, it makes no difference whether your dream is to start a new business, buy a house, get married, graduate with honors, get a new position at work, or any other goal be it big or small. Whatever it may be, you must step out and boldly go after it.
Sure, there will be times along the way that you miss the mark, but that does not make you a failure. Sometimes plans don’t work out as anticipated, but you still have the capacity to bounce back and try again.
What’s stopping you from walking out your vision into your dream life? Continually remind yourself that you have tremendous reservoirs of potential within you and with God’s help you are capable of doing anything you set your mind to do. All you have to do is decide to do it and know you can. Do not doubt whether or not you can. Simply get it settled that you can and make up your mind this very moment to run with your vision into your dream life.
May you dare to run with your vision and enjoy a life of growing prosperity!

God Given Empowerment – Use it to Get Your Focus on Once and for All!
Discover How to Get Your Life’s Vision in Focus with God’s Help
but comes from God …
What is your level of empowerment?
Is your life’s vision currently in focus?
Or do you run around day to day feeling very busy, …
yet lost and going nowhere?
Get empowered starting today. Wait on the Lord. Then write the vision down and make it plain so that you can run with it. (Habakkuk 2)
Focus on the Vision of Your Desired Life
What are you passionate about? Where do you see yourself in the future? Seek God for guidance on this. We are told to acknowledge Him in all our ways and He will direct our paths. (Proverbs 3:6) God knows the plans He has for us, plans to prosper, so call on Him and seek His help.
Make a Plan of Action
If your goals and visions do not clash or go counter to the Word of God, then make a plan. Come up with steps you can take to make your vision a reality and write them down. Read them and speak them aloud daily and begin at least taking baby steps.
Next week is going to come whether you do something different or don’t do something different. Real deep thought, huh? NOT, but it needs to be said and you need to hear it.
Wake Up – Life is Happening
It is up to you to change your direction. If you want something different, if you have a vision or even a partial vision, take time to zoom in on it and get it in focus.
This is your life and you only have ONE SHOT – don’t waste it! Do something meaningful with it. If not for you, then for others, but ultimately for God. God did not create you and put you here in this age for nothing. You have a purpose and a part to play just like we all do.
Everyone is valuable and it is vital to society that you function the best you can in your God given abilities. My pastor often references the body of Christ to our human body. It does not matter if you are an ear drum, an eye, a big toe, or a heart. Every part is important and vital to the whole body in its purpose for all things to function at its best.
Life is a Journey and a Growing Process
Don’t be afraid to mess up. Remember all things work together for good to those who love the Lord. (Romans 8:28) Continue to pray and seek God daily for guidance to adjust and direct your steps on the way. Taking baby steps will empower you greatly and soon you’ll be an off and running success.
The simple fact of the matter is this: Tomorrow, next month, and next year is going to come even if you don’t change a thing. But I wonder? What if you purpose to change a few things and get God working with you? What might your next week, next month, or next year look like?
Why not get busy and find out? What are you still doing here?! Go now, and start making things happen in life by tapping into your God given empowerment.
May you continue to experience a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you,

Prosperity Never Comes From Simply Wishing
Discover The Next Step to Your Prosperity
“I wish I would, I wish I might, have a million dollars by tonight.” Repeat this saying 1,000 times during the day and you’ll have one million dollars by tonight.
** NOT ** Yet, as crazy as this example sounds, a lot of people are simply repeating wishful affirmations over and over and expecting results!
I’m here today to clear this up and tell you prosperity never comes by merely wishing or longing for it. Just keeping your mind focused on prosperity and thinking about it will never bring it to you. This is only the first step.
Of course you have to start with step one. You must first have an expectant mind and a vision of what you are expecting to prosper in. You need to stand in faith believing for it. You must cling to your prosperity thought and dream with a daily focus.
We are told in Habakkuk 2:2 to listen to what the Lord tells us and then write the vision and make it plain so that we can run with it.
This leads us to the next step in reaching prosperity. You must take action with practical, common-sense methods that all successful people employ in their work. You need to back up your dream and belief with orderly, business like, industrious action. We see in Habakkuk 2:2 it says write the vision so that we can RUN with it. Run requires flinging your energy and your heart into whatever area you believe to prosper in. You must DO everything to the finish.
In Habakkuk 2:4 it tells us that the just shall live by his faith. Faith does not only believe, but it also requires action that backs up what we believe. My favorite definition of faith is believing and obeying the Word of God.
You might wish and dream of abundance and prosperity all your life, but die in the poor house if you don’t back up your wish with action. The law of prosperity is scientific. It will not produce successful results if you don’t obey the law. So create a fully persuaded belief system and practice what you believe and let prosperity begin to flood your life.
May you experience growing prosperity in your life as you take your vision and run with it!
Be blessed to be a blessing,
