Chart Your Vision

The wise mystic writer wrote, “Without a vision, the people will perish.” This is profound wisdom! Unless you have a vision for your life, your business, and all areas of your life, you will perish and you will not prosper. More often than not, most of us seem to meander through our lives; taking the route pre-set for us, not the one deliberately set by us. You must live your own life which means you must have a map of what you want your life to look like.

Without a clear vision for your life, where will you end up? How do you know which road to take? Remember the scene in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland?

Alice came to a fork in the road.
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don’t know," Alice answered.
"Then,” said the cat, "it doesn’t matter."

If you don’t know where you are going, then any road will take you there.

Having a clear vision not only charts a course for your life, but it also helps to eliminate what is not necessary; it helps you to stay on the highway so you can avoid all of the annoying little side streets. And though side streets do have their charm, they must be deliberately grafted into your bigger vision – lest you veer off your chosen course.
