Your vision and purpose are unique to you. what is the vision for you life? what is your purpose? do you have it written down? what is holding you back from accomplishing them..
when it comes down to living out your vision and purpose in life, i realised a few things that tend to hold people back is when you listen to negative opinions, you feel other people have the same ideas as you or there seems to be a lot of what you are about to start or do around.. often times i have heard people saying things like that... but it really does not matter who is doing what as your vision and purpose are unique to you.
Your uniqueness is what sets you apart and differentiate you from everybody else, what motivates you about your vision.. what drives you.. what lengths are you willing to go to in order live out God's vision for your life.
I will share 3 things that will empower you to accomplish your vision
WRITE IT DOWN: Habakkuk 2:2 tells us to write the vision down, make it plain that it may run
who reads it. When you write it down, it begins to solidify and it helps put us on the path that it can be accomplished. I never really used to write ideas down and this kind of affected me in really going after my dreams etc it was all in my head and i tried to plan in my head but just never really worked out for me till i made the decision to change my mindsets about my vision and purpose and what God is leading me to do. I found it's much easier to just write them down... it gives me sense of direction, motivation and inspiration to push through. I have met people with amazing ideas and visions but never follow through because one of the reasons are due to not writing down and implementing their ideas.
CAST OUT FEAR: one the things that can hinder you from accomplishing vision and hold you back is fear. The fear of the unknown, of rejection, fear of failure we cannot let fear rule us because fear is not real it FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL some fears are not justified and don't me wrong there will always be things that gets us worried. 2 Timothy 1:7 for God has not given us the the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Believe that and take a step of faith towards your goal one step at a time before you know it your confidence will start building up and you are good to go. Remain hopeful and don't let fear be your master.
BREAK OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE: well it's not really easy breaking out of what you are used to. but you are limiting yourself and likely missing out on opportunities and personal growth. Take the first step, make small changes .. new mindsets learn new things, go for training that will empower you to live out your vision, change your friends if you have to. look for mentors within your desired niche or someone who can challenge you to do better. "life begins at the end of your comfort zone" Neale Donald Walsch. I have to agree with that quote because for a long time i could not break out of my comfort zone i was basically hiding there even though i knew it was holding me back from what i knew i should be doing, my vision and purpose were at a standstill. It got to a point where i was no longer comfortable in my comfort zone and things needed to change, i went on a training course and that changed my perspectives, mindsets and my confidence level changed , walk with confidence and inspired to go after my goals. I am a work in progress but definitely on my way and i am confident that you too are capable of breaking out.
I want to encourage to run with the vision God has placed on the inside of you. Be confident in who you are and have confidence in your purpose. Embrace and discover your uniqueness because that's what will set you apart from everyone else and above all you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
