Who you become and what you will accomplish in 2016 (and beyond), in a great degree is determined by what you see.
So let me ask you, “What do you see for yourself in 2016?”
Think about it. Almost everything is first created in the invisible realm and then brought into the natural realm.
For example, consider a building.
First an architect gets input from his client with some general ideas about what the building should look like and how the building should function. Then the architect takes these ideas and works out the design in his head. He first “sees it.” It isn’t a reality yet. First it’s a vision, an idea, a picture in someone’s head.
Then the architect sketches the drawing, gets more input from his client, redraws the drawings, and finalizes the blueprints. Once the blueprints are finished, a construction company is hired and it becomes their job to make the vision a reality. The builders will use brick and mortar, steel beams and wood studs, drywall and paint, carpet and lights to bring the architect’s drawing into reality. What was once an idea in someone’s head—a vision—becomes a something that we can now see and touch.
But it started as a vision.
The same is true for us. Before we can build and live a life that counts, before we can have a meaningful and purposeful life—we first have to see it.
Consider these examples.
- In 1774, John Adams said, “Someday I see a union of 13 states—a new nation, independent from the Parliament of the King of England.”
- In the late 1800’s, the Wright Brothers saw a day when people would fly through the air. Ten years later, the Kittyhawk lifted off a sandy beach in North Carolina.
- Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, in essence, said, “I see a day when people are no longer judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
- Peter Jackson, the director of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, said that he first saw every scene in his mind and then worked it out with sets, actors, and special effects.
- Helen Keller thought vision was so important that she once said, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision!” Wow.
So, “What do you see?”
What’s the vision you have for your life, your marriage, your children, your health, your finances, and your career? How you answer this question will set in motion the direction you go in 2016, and the direction you go will determine who you become and what you accomplish.
So let me ask you again, “What do you see for yourself in 2016?”
