The wonderful tomorrow which I am living now makes me fail to recognize the challenges of today.” – Brian Kazungu
Life is very rewarding to the visionaries because they always have the privilege to preview the future while they are still living in the present.
Those that have a vision of a better future and work towards achieving their goals always have the picture of how the future will look like.
In this life, most of the projects that people get involved in are very demanding and straining to start, manage and to complete.
However, it is the vision of the complete product or end result that makes people to work hard and forbear the present challenges.
Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before :14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. KJV
For example, when a person is saving some money for buying a house or a car, he or she forgoes a lot of other things that could have been bought by that money at that time.
This is because the imagination of living in that house or driving that car usually outweighs the desire to spend the money on something else today.
When this car or house is finally paid for, it will just make the occupation or driving more real even though the person was already enjoying these assets in the mind.
If you do not have a vision for the future, you are most likely to always make abrupt decisions that will affect you when tomorrow comes.
The failure to see the future in advance steals away the urge to move ahead and to face life head-on.
Quite often, if you do not imagine the future, you are generally prone to stress over trivialities.
A wonderful tomorrow is always possible but however it needs the planning, execution and discipline.
Do not just see the future today but do something about it today as well.
Lacking regard for tomorrow will make the future look and sound cruel since it will directly respond to the decisions that you make today.
For this tomorrow to come loaded with the gifts, presents and rewards that it has been known to offer, you must surely start to see and act upon it today.
Reflectionsa) Write down a prospect that you believe will change your life for good.b) What are you doing about it today?c) Present it before God for help and blessing
Proverbs 16:3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. KJV
