Develop a Vision for Victory

What do you see right now when you close your eyes?  Do you see the great things that are to come, or do you see the frustrations, the last disagreement, the disappointments that beset us all?  Today I am writing for both parents and kids to take a moment to Develop a Vision for Victory in their life.  I remind myself of this every day by imagining the word: SOAR.  It reminds me to reach up even when things are down, push myself to the vision, the image that I have of my dream, my success, my Victory in life.

It releases in me my faith and an expectancy to find something great in all that I do.  It creates energy in me when I begin to feel deflated a bit.

We have control over our attitudes and outlook, but we often let the day-to-day challenges defeat us, deflate us to the point where we forget to look for joy, gratitude, and victories in our lives.  If you have a vision for Victory, then you pursue the day with enthusiasm, with expectancy, a plan that has details, and a point in the future that defines your life destiny.  I want to encourage you to let go of your old way of thinking.  For years I was in a demanding job with lots of ugly politics that pulled me down.

I didn’t realize it, although my close friends would remind me that my attitude needed a tune-up from time to time!  A tune-up, I thought?  Well, that is a jolt.  Life gives us those nudges from time to time, and we need to pay attention to them. Otherwise, it will provide us with a bigger kick and maybe even a push before we wake up and say, OK, I’ve got this.

Suspend your view of your life circumstances.  No matter the mistakes that you’ve made!  Grab this opportunity to Develop a Vision for Victory in your life.  What does Victory look like for you?  What clothes are you wearing?  What are you doing?  Who is with you?  How are you celebrating this accomplishment?  What other details can you add to help make this a strong image for you?  By letting go of your past and finding the teaching moments in them; you create your Victory
