Vision

How many silver BMWs did you see yesterday? Unless you drive a BMW, you probably didn’t notice any. But later today or tomorrow, after reading this, chances are you will notice several. Why? Because you always see what you’re looking for.

That being the case, it makes sense to look for the very best that life can offer. There are wonderful opportunities swirling around you at any given point in time. Open your eyes to them by deciding precisely what you desire to have or accomplish or become.

We refer to some people as having “vision.” These are people who have clearly defined objectives. We call it “vision” because those objectives give them the ability to see things no one else can see. Directing your intentions can truly open your eyes.

What are you seeing? What are you missing? What are you all about? Decide that, and you’ll develop the vision to see the many opportunities all around you.

— Ralph Marston
