Vision vs Eyesight
By Basia A. Powell
It always amazes me that two people can look at the same thing and see something totally different. Vision and eyesight are not the same things. We can all have the same lens with a different vision. This is why a blind man like Stevie Wonder, can lose his eyesight, but not his vision to succeed.
Success does not require the ability to see in front of you, but to see beyond what you see in front of you. For this reason, three children can be raised in the same home by the same parents and have different end results. The child with the most vision will be the most successful.
I believe the key to ultimate success is to hold a vision beyond what the eyes can see. Having dreams and goals that are larger than your present circumstances, help you to succeed. Many people never leave the environment because their eyesight make them afraid of their vision. They want the end result, but they are not prepared to put the work in. If only we could succeed by just wishing.
When you have a larger than life vision, it is important to hang around people who think and dream like you. If you keep surrounding yourself with people with no dreams , your vision becomes blurred. It is sometimes better to walk alone, than to walk with someone who is not headed in the same direction as you are.
Today, as you walk towards your vision, surround yourself with visionaries. Do not surround yourself with people who will constantly remind you that you cannot achieve your dreams, and who are unable to see beyond their present situation. Do not be intimidated by your vision.
My choice is to focus on vision and not my poor eyesight. It’s a belief that lets you know that you can achieve great things even when your eyesight is failing you, and you do not have all the money you need, but you are prepared to take one step at a time until you arrive at your destination.
