“Go after your dream, no matter how unattainable others think it is.” Linda Mastandrea
How badly do you want your vision? Do you have the passion to persevere after your vision when it seems impossible to achieve?
What is Passion?
It is a strong, intense feeling or emotion that will push you to go after your most intimate desires. Passion that is in tune to the vision God has placed in your heart will equip you with the stamina to pursue it at all costs.
You want let nothing or no one stop you. You will develop a passion that burns so intense that negative situations or discouraging words won’t extinguish the fire the burns within you. You will go to bed at night anticipating the next day and wake up in the morning ready to live out your vision.
When you are hungry for vision nothing will satisfy your appetite. If you are doing anything other than pursuing your vision you will not be satisfied.
You want be satisfied
If you know there is a business in you waiting to give birth, you want be satisfied working on a job. If you know your marriage is supposed to bless other couples, you won’t be satisfied with a lack luster marriage.
If you know you need to be in good shape to fulfill your vision, you won’t be satisfied unless you are doing everything necessary to stay healthy. Whatever you need to do to make your vision a reality, you must do it.
I want to be upfront and warn you that a price must be paid to accomplish your vision. You may lose some people that are close to you because they want understand your passion. You may have to go to bed late and get up early because you must put in the extra hours to make things happen. You may have to give up your familiar routines because your vision is pushing you to start something new.
Your vision is not going to show up at your door in a neatly wrapped box with a neatly tied bow on top. You are not going to read a bestselling book or listen to a powerful motivational speech or inspirational sermon with a five step formula that will bring you instant success.
You are not going to be able to read a list of affirmations, quote a few popular scriptures or think great thoughts and your vision will automatically happen. If you want to see your vision produce positive results, you must put on your hard hat, steel-toe boots, work clothes and go to work.
Passion to see your vision through
I have realized that once you decide to implement your vision, nothing or no one can stop you, but you. If you will remain steadfast, unmovable and abide in God’s directions even when the struggles of life confront you, victory is possible.
If you are passionate about seeing your vision come to fruition, you will defy the odds and achieve what others and even yourself think is impossible. A passion for vision will give you a picture of a brighter future that you can’t let go.
Even when life throws you a curve ball and you want to walk away from everything. If you lose your job, bank account drops to zero, friends and family walk away, a passion to fulfill your vision will motivate you to keep pushing forward. Whatever your vision may be, remain passionate about it, value it, fight for it, work at it and you will be rewarded
