Highest vision

Somewhere deep within you is a vision of how wonderful and beautiful you know life can be. It may be buried under layers of disillusionment, cynicism, frustration and despair, and yet it is there. It is there ready for you to fulfill.

Ironically, you know that vision is there precisely because of the difficulties you experience. For there would be no such thing as difficulty unless there was also something positive and wonderful against which you could compare it. You have a solid and sustaining vision for how great you know life can be. The more you connect with that vision, the more real it will become.

Can the reality of your life really match the beauty of your highest and best vision for that life? You bet it can! For why would you have the vision of a great life unless you also had the possibility of such, and the ability to attain it?

Whatever you can envision, you can become. Challenge yourself first to find that genuine vision, and then to make it so. It’s definitely there -- you most certainly have it. Get in touch with that highest vision and live the life you were truly meant to live.
