Make sure to check out the video above. It explains how I was able to truly unlock my vision by being alone in nature, away from all the noise and distractions of the city and society.
What exactly is a vision? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary a vision is:
"something seen in a dream, trance, or ecstasy; especially : a supernatural appearance that conveys a revelation."
Essentially, a vision is how we see our future selves. It may come to us in the form of a dream, or it may be a feeling or memory we have have carried with us our entire lives. Instinctively we know who we are and our vision guides us to where we are going.
Vision is the voice that is telling you that you need to write, to sing, to dance, to paint or whatever it is that you are yearning to do. This voice is often drowned out by society. Society tells us to go to school and get a "normal" job, buy a house and raise a "normal" family, so we can live a "normal" life. Yet our vision often tells us something completely different. That is why most of us struggle, become frustrated, and ultimately give in to the pressures of society and abandon our dreams. Although we are able to see our true selves in our visions, we settle for living how society says we are "supposed" to live.
The path to fulfilling our visions will not be easy for those of us who choose to follow. There will be endless challenges such as doubters and naysayers telling us that we are crazy and our dreams are "unrealistic". At one point, everything ever created by man was unrealistic , so who are we to determine what is possible?
Remember, your vision is... YOUR vision. It is YOUR dream and nobody has the right to tell you to do something else that you know is not your purpose. Even friends and family who often, out of love, try to stop us from pursuing our dreams because they know it is a long and arduous path.
Ultimately, the decision is yours. Yes, you will have to overcome many obstacles along your journey, but believe it is possible and more importantly know that it is your destiny and your duty to fulfill it.
