See the Invisible – Believe the Incredible
I’ve been known to misplace things. I don’t like to think of them as lost, it’s just that sometimes items get buried under stuff or put where they don’t belong, resulting in frustration and wasted time. It’s that much worse if you misplace your glasses and don’t have clarity of vision to conduct the search. To take this a step further, how much worse is it if your internal vision gets fogged up and you can’t see the path for success any longer?
The calendar indicates that half of 2010 is behind us. Has your passion dimmed since January? Is your vision clear, your hopes high and are you strongly positioned to make the most of the second half of 2010?
Leaders in this day are like ships that are actually leaving port during a storm in order to chart the course for what’s to come. It’s blustery and the storm clouds are ominous but change-makers are harbingers of hope. However, it’s absolutely critical for you to check your navigational equipment regularly, as course corrections must be made more often in stormy weather. As Zig Ziglar would say, “do a check-up from the neck up!”
There’s an urgency to check the anchor line to your core values. Keeping your mission and vision literally before you every day (as in taped to your desktop!) is an integral part of keeping your passion high. This is absolutely critical, as passion is the wind in your sails. Continually visualize uncommon success and what that looks like for you. “Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” (Hab. 2:2)
This weekend is a long holiday weekend for most of us, so I urge you to take some time to connect with your mission and core values, your goals & your strategies for the rest of 2010. When you consider the condition of our nation and how far we have strayed from the vision of our Founding Fathers, it’s a reminder to first of all, pray. Secondly, it’s a reminder to be mindful of your own house (your life, your actions) in order to prevent the slippery slide our nation has made into debt and moral bankruptcy. It is necessary that we discern the times, honor and respect God and pursue Truth. That, my friends, will set you on the right course to be able to truly celebrate Independence Day.
To see the invisible
To hear the inaudible
To believe the incredible
To think the unthinkable
To do the impossible.
