The ability to see is referred to as vision. It’s also the ability to imagine or plan for the future. It’s also the capacity to see into the future, to imagine or plan for it with creativity or wisdom. Proverbs 29:1-27
Having sight is good. But having vision is even better. Where there is no vision, where people have no plan for the future, perishing and destruction is inevitable. Proverbs 29:18
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. But when we have vision and keep them, we grow old happy and fullfilled.
What is/are your vision(s)?
👉🏾What is your financial vision?
👉🏾What is your career or business vision?
👉🏾What is your family vision?
👉🏾What is your spiritual vision?
👉🏾What is your vision for old age?
✅1. Catch or create a vision for your life today. Begin by defining what you want your life, career, business, family, ministry and community to look like in old age.
✅2. Create strategies to achieve your vision. One thing is to know where you are going – but more importantly is to know how to get there. Knowing where you are going is vision, but knowing how to get there is strategy. So, develop your “how to get there” process and pathway.
✅3. Discipline yourself to apply your strategies. Do not allow anybody or anything to hinder your implementation of the strategies.
✅4. Monitor & Evaluate your progress towards the actualization of your vision, periodically. You can do this weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually.
✅5. Engage helpers of destiny towards the actualization of your vision. Most visions will require others for their fulfillment. Find the right people and partner with them.
✅6. Trust God for health, wisdom, grace and power to implement the strategies without interruptions.
When you create or catch your vision, implement and actualize it with God, happy are you.
🎯1. Listen to the corrections, counseling, and guidance of elders to avoid destructions.

🎯3. Make your vision big enough to accommodate the poor and needy. Proverbs 29:7. The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it. Be the God the poor and needy see everyday and everywhere.
🎯4. Choose your fights and battles wisely. Proverbs 29:9. If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest. Know where to invest your energy and emotions into and what to just allow pass.
🎯5. Think before you talk and learn quietness. Proverbs 29:11. A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards. There is both wisdom and strength in knowing when to talk and when not.

🎯8. Be a mentor to teachable and driven people. Proverbs 29:21. He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length. Mentorship pays.
🎯9. Manage your anger and emotions, and make them profitable. Proverbs 29:22. An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.
🎯10. Be humble in prosperity and success. Proverbs 29:23. A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit. There are no self-made persons. God is behind making us who we are. So, remain meek and humble in your own eyes.
