THE TWO PHASES OF A VISION

I was engaged in a conversation with a friend about having a life vision. I asked her: “ what do you want to do with your life?“. She replied: “ I don't know but I know I want to do something with my life“. I rebuked her, telling her that is too vague.
Suddenly, I got this strong conviction that my rebuke was wrong. I apologized and the conversation continued. Out of that conversation, two truths emerged about The Phases of a vision: (1) Lack of Clarity (2) State of Clarity
1. Lack of Clarity
This is the first phase of a vision where you know deep within that you want to do something with your life; but you don't know exactly what. You can't put your finger to it. Everything around you looks blurred. This phase of a vision is very necessary. It makes you “sick“ about ur comfort zones and your normalcy about life. Don't get discouraged about the lack of clarity of your vision--it is needed to force you to seek out clarity. For your information, all successful people once walked this phase of life before they eventually found clarity about what they wanted to do.
2. State of Clarity
This is the phase of a vision where the fog is cleared and everything becomes clearer. You come out of the tunnel with light lighting your path with a clean, clear sense of purpose. At this phase you start putting structures in place to see your vision taking form and substance.
There is always light at the end of the tunnel. Things might not be clear now, but keep moving, don't stop and most importantly don't allow anybody to stop you.
