In the same way, life gets so busy that so many things pass us by, so it is with our minds. Some days your mind is so busy that your thoughts overwhelm you, while other days it is just quiet.
The mind can propel you to achieve your desired results in life, and if you can train it to reclaim its natural capability to stay in the present and only wander off to your pre-designed destination, then nothing within the human ability would be beyond your reach.Your mind is always racing with thoughts, some, you recognize while others, you don’t, just like your breath.This is because you are continuously choosing when, and how you want to process those thoughts, which your biases, experiences, knowledge, or lack of presence play a significant role.
One thing, for sure is this, thoughts will always be racing through your mind just like the flowing…
In this brief blog post, i have carefully chosen top 10 quotes to inspire you to find a vision if you haven’t already, and if you have, great! I hope that these quotes inspire you to at least take a step toward your goal today. Remember, trying and failing is better than not trying at all.
A man’s worth is no greater than his ambitions.
When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but no vision.
It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down. All that matters is you get up one more time than you were knocked down.
Roy T. Bennett
Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.
Joel A. Barker
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.
Success is about dedication. You may not be where you want to be or do what you want to do when you’re on the journey. But you’ve got to be willing to have vision and foresight that leads you to an incredible end.
A mission statement is not something you write overnight… But fundamentally, your mission statement becomes your constitution, the solid expression of your vision and values. It becomes the criterion by which you measure everything else in your life.
When you believe in your dream and your vision, then it begins to attract its own resources. No one was born to be a failure.
” It belongs to the nature of man, as from Heaven, to be still at his birth. His activity shows itself as he is acted on by external things, and develops the desires incident to his nature. Things come to him more and more, and his knowledge is increased. Then arise the manifestations of liking and disliking. When these are not regulated by anything within, and growing knowledge leads more astray without, he cannot come back to himself, and his Heavenly principle is extinguished.” – Confucius
Reading about Confucius lends so much light to the art of living in my opinion. In my article: How to Find Your True Self I hinted on several things that derail and pervert us from our true godly nature. Like Confucius rightly alluded to, we have internal regulators that are akin to our very nature. Life will throw a lot of things at us that if we not careful, have the power to alter our fundamental principles upon which we were formed.
Not too many people recognize these internal regulators that are constantly pulling us back to our true nature when peer pressure and all other forms of alternative principles set to counter our very person strike. It is sickening and sad how people drastically change for the worse due to their ignorance of the powers and influences surrounding them.
Yes there is constant pressure both from within and without, constantly seeking our attention either to derail us from our path or to pull us back on track, yes it is difficult to identify the right path that we must embark on to achieve our purpose, I agree that it is extremely difficult to stay true to yourself in a world that is constantly forcing (indirectly) us to conform, but the importance of staying on track and holding firm to your heavenly principles and to the very reason why you were sent on earth cannot be overstated, you most, therefore, adhere to your inner calling, these internal regulators admonishing you either not to or to do things when faced with difficult situations. You must 100 percent trust your intuition because it will not lead you astray, for it is the very fabric that constitutes your being, it is independent of opinions and external influences.
To tap into this powerful resource, you must guard your mind with all that you’ve got” Do Not Conform (Romans 12:2). Paul’s letter to the Romans highlights the relative importance of us not losing our true identity, it also points to the fact that those of ancient times also suffered from these same things that plague us today.
