Meaningful Change is the Result of a Clear Vision
Change. It can be frightening. Change. It can be exhilarating. Change. It can happen to us. Change. We can be the instigator. We can ignite change or we can be extinguished by change.
This one thing is clear: change happens. Like the current of a river, it flows—sometimes lazily, sometimes rapidly and sometimes crazily. We live in times of chaotic change and as humans have always done, we must adapt with it. We must flow with it.
To flow with the changes, we must know where we want the currents to take us. This requires a vision. There is a big difference between a vision and a view. If we allow the currents of change to sweep us along, we will have a view along the way, but we won't have a vision of where we want to go.
Creating meaningful change requires that we live consciously and have a clear vision of what we want to experience along the way. So many of us have experienced the negativity of knowing that what we have is not what we want. Adding to the frustration is the unawareness of what it is that we want. A life well lived is a life of intention and life of vision. Clarify your vision of what you want in this life, in this moment.
Clarify your vision and you become the director of meaningful change in your life. Take some time with yourself to explore deeply six areas of your life. Be honest with yourself about where you are compared to where you want to be in these six areas of your life:
1) Professional—This concerns your delivery of value to make yourself better, to make your world better, and to attract abundance and prosperity into your world. Yes, that was a fancy way of saying this is your job. I contend that if your job is just a job, you may need some help in this area. What do you love doing? What are you good at? When you combine passion and skill, the world will find you. When you can make a living and make a life, you never have to work another day in your life.
