The ancient proverb states, “Where there is no vision the people perish.” Creating a vision for your life demands your full attention. A “vision” can be literal, just seeing the ground before you. “Vision” can also be metaphorical, seeing where life may take you, where decisions will lead you, what life could be for you.
In the book Treasure, Edwin Louis Cole helps you define the vision for your life and employ practical steps to achieve that vision. This book stretches you to see new possibilities of what your life can be and what your life should be. In the first few chapters, you’ll read that the most powerful thing you can do in life is to create an image. The second most powerful thing is to destroy that image. Political advertisers say, “It’s all about optics.” Advertisers say, “Image is everything.”
The vision you hold of your life is what drives you to a new place, to operate on a new level, to do things differently. Getting a vision for your life causes you to become pregnant with purpose, and that vision gives birth to action. Consider what happens when you’re dreaming. You see images that your mind believes are real. If you dream that someone is chasing you, your heart rate increases and you might even scream out. In the same way, when you have a vision of what your life can be, everything in your system begins to line up and act as though that vision is actual reality.
By capturing a new vision, you can see a way out of a present predicament. If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done. If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always had. Repeating the past won’t create a new future. Repeating the past only creates more of the past. To leave where you are, you must have a vision of where you’d rather be, then make the changes to get there.
It all starts with vision, a picture of the future, an image of how things ought to be for you. Dr. Cole states, “Decision translates into energy.” Get the picture, get clear on it, make the decision of what your life should be, and you will find that you have the energy and motivation to pursue it.
Right now, start with making the investment to read this slim book, Treasure. It will lead you to discover one of the greatest treasures a person can ever find—a vision for your own life.
