HAVE A CLEAR VISION
So many of our best people are lost.
So many of the good ones don’t know what they’re doing with
their lives. They’re unhealthy. They’re unhappy. Seventy percent of
them hate their jobs. Their relationships are unrewarding. They don’t smile.
They don’t laugh. They have no energy. They feel useless. They feel
helpless, as if life were pushing them down a road to nowhere.
If you know what to look for, you will see these people everywhere.
Maybe even when you look in the mirror. It’s OK. You’re not broken.
Neither are they. This is just what happens when you don’t have a clear
vision for your life, and you’ve taken either whatever you can get or
whatever you thought you deserved.
We can fix that. Because everything good, all great change, starts with a
Vision is the most important thing. Vision is purpose and meaning. To
have a clear vision is to have a picture of what you want your life to look
like and a plan for how to get there. The people who feel most lost have
neither of those. They don’t have the picture or the plan. They look in the
mirror and they wonder, “How the hell did I get here?” but they don’t know.
They’ve made so many decisions and taken so many actions that have
landed them in this place, and yet they have no idea what any of them were.
They’ll even argue with you: “I hate this, why would I have chosen it?”
Except no one forced that ring on their finger or put that second
cheeseburger in their hands. No one made them take that dead-end job. No
one made them skip class, or miss workouts, or stop going to church. No
one made them stay up late every night playing video games instead of
getting eight hours of sleep. No one made them drink that last beer or spend
their last dollar.
Yet they fully believe what they’re saying. And I believe they believe it.
They feel as if life just sort of happened to them. They really think they had
no choice in what became of their lives.
And you know what? They’re partly right.
None of us has a choice about where we come from. I grew up in a small
village in Austria at the beginning of the Cold War. My mother was very
loving. My father was strict, and he could be physically abusive, but I loved
him very much. It was complicated. I’m sure your story is complicated too.
I bet growing up was more difficult than the people around you think it was.
We can’t change those stories, but we can choose where we go from there.
There are reasons and explanations for all the things that have happened
to us up to this point, good and bad. But for the most part, it wasn’t because
we didn’t have a choice. We always have a choice. What we don’t always
have, unless we create it, is something to measure our choices against.
That is what a clear vision gives you:
