“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight, but no vision” -Helen Keller. No one has ever achieved greatness without having a clear purpose and vision. Decide who you are going to be and what you are going to do, then write it down– that is your vision. When you know your purpose and have a clear vision for it, you will have reason to wake up and grind every single day. When you know your why and you stay passionate about it, no one and nothing can stop you.
These days I see so many people my age (and of all ages, really) wandering through life with no vision of where they are going or what they want to do. They are stuck in a job or a major that they hate and they are living a life of full of being ordinary. If you have no idea what your purpose is, chances are you will end up in the middle of nowhere. So direct your life on purpose. Guide your dreams to reach your destination.
I love to watch people talking about their dreams and passions. Something in their eyes lights up and you can see in them exactly what they were put on this Earth for. Your vision should be something that you love to do. This thing that you love is what your heart beats for. Because in life we face hard times and hard situations where we want to just give up.. But your heart is stronger than your mind! So in these hard times you must listen to your heart. Your heart is where your why lives and where your passion lies. Your heart will show you the way to success.
Those around us think they know what’s best for us and tell us what we “should” do. Maybe you have always wanted to be a realtor, but your parents say you should be an accountant because you will make more money. But what they don’t realize is that being an accountant is not what your heart beats for. How can you be successful and live life to your fullest potential if you are not doing what you are passionate about? Try something new and take risks. If you want to start a business or if you have an idea that others say is “crazy”, go for it. Prove the doubters wrong. Even if you fail, failure is simply one step closer to success and I can guarantee it will teach you so much. If you don’t take the risk you may live a life full of regretting “what might have been”.
Don’t chase the money, chase your vision and the money will come. Focus not on adding money into your bank account, but on adding value to the lives of others. By adding value, you will reap the greatest rewards. Don’t pretend to be something that you are not.. Be yourself and show the world what is special inside of you. If you pursue your passion, you will thrive. To walk away from what burns inside of you and drives you on each day is to deny yourself and others of something extraordinarily special.
My mission is to inspire others and to aid people in their journey to wellness. I want to change others’ lives for the better just as my life was transformed. I have huge dreams and goals and no one can stand in my way, because my passion and desire will always carry me through the failures, the voices of doubt, and set-backs.
Life is short and fleeting and we must never forget it. Take risks, listen to your heart, and trust your vision. Stay passionate, stay compassionate, and live your own life. That’s the beauty of life, we’re all different. We’re unique individuals, so our dreams should be individual to us! Push yourself to live the life that you want to live. You think big, you dream big, and you’ll be big.
