    A Vision

    If our vision becomes our most dominant thought, we will automatically move toward it. Earl Nightingale found this fact to be true.

    Periodically, we need to review our plan to achieve our vision. When one writes down the dream, it produces an indelible impression on our subconscious. Then when the present invades and occupies our conscious mind, the subconscious still works on our vision. Putting in some of the details of our vision in writing also increases our chances of reaching it by one hundred percent. College experiments have proven this to be true.

    When possible, work hard, a little or some in our spare time on our dream daily . Max Lucado, a famous pastor and prolific author dedicates only two hours of uninterrupted time each day to writing, the rest of the day is used as the pastor of his church. Speaking of hard work, don’t stay busy seven days a week. Permit ourselves one day out of the week for rest. This will keep our creativity at full strength.

    We gravitate to what we consider ourselves to be from a bum, commoner or leader. Plant that goal in our mind so we will continually move toward that dream.  We never go any higher than our dream.

    One often overlooked the assets of people we associate with. Positive people help us stay positive. If we encourage others and they encourage us we will reach the vision we have for ourselves.
