Welcome to Write Your Vision!

Deep down, most people have dreams - they may be forgotten, unspoken, or unrealized - but they are there. I want to help you remember and believe in them again...

Why Let Go?

There is something to be said for 'letting go.'  In a blog about dreams - about writing your vision - where could that possibly fit?  How could that ever make sense?

The important thing to remember when you Write Your Vision is that you are often focused on the end result right?  You SEE where you want to go - the end of the rainbow - the homerun or touchdown - the finished product.  You take that image that's in your mind's eye and hopefully commit it to paper or in our Environmentally-conscious world to a document or other online resource.  ;)

And that's ALL GOOD!  That's precisely what I recommend you do!  Because after all, you can't get what you want if you don't know what you want, right?  Right.

That said,  I've never said ANYTHING at all about HOW to get there...

Here's the critical piece:  You will never - no never - reach your goal, your vision - your dream if you stay where you are.

Re-read that last sentence, please.

Yes, I said NEVER.  It is impossible.  Achieving anything at all requires ACTION.  It requires us to move... often to move forward.  And inevitably that means you must Let Go of where you are, sometimes even who you are now, etc.  We are human B E I N Gs not human been's or human be's (as in "be still" not buzzzz).  We are constantly in motion whether we choose to recognize this reality or not.

Every second we become someone new.  We are aging.  We are learning.  We are growing.

I am not the same person I was 10 seconds ago, 10 minutes ago, 10 days ago, 10 months ago... et.al.

Neither are you.

So why do we cling to the status quo?  Because we are afraid to let go.

The status quo is safe.  It's predictable.  It IS... you know it, it's familiar.  You think you can control it.  But, here's the thing - you can't and believe it or not, your STATUS QUO is actually changing right in front of you.

There's only one thing that I know of that remains constant -- that's the Alpha & the Omega (but that's a topic for a different day)...

Nothing EVER stays the same.  It can't.

So stop believing the lie.  When you recognize this fundamental truth - it becomes SO much easier to let go because the reality is, you never had what you thought you had in the first place.  AND if you truly want to reach your dream, you must let go of your NOW and your YESTERDAY...

Embrace where you actually ARE and recognize you are in the constant motion of becoming... so choose to release what you think you are holding onto to and instead face forward.  Step with the current and allow yourself to walk in harmony with it towards your destiny.

Why let go?  Because the very act of releasing your past frees you to embrace your future.

       THINK.       WRITE.       BELIEVE.       ACT.
