Vision: Your First Step To Financial Freedom
All things are created twice. Everything created is first created in the mind, before it is created in the physical world. Nothing happens in the world of reality unless it is first a dream. Mental creation must always precede the physical or second creation.
Vision is the first creation. It is the mental creation of your desired or preferred future….a mental picture of what you want to see in your future or in the physical. Vision is like the blueprint of a house.
Just as an architectural drawing or design is a critical step in the process of building a house, so also is a vision crucial to building wealth.
It therefore means a great place to start your wealth building journey is to develop a vision for wealth.
A vision for wealth acquisition is crucial in your quest to be wealthy. This will not only help you to be sensitive to present opportunities but much more to future ones.
For many people, this is one key component of wealth building that is not appreciated or considered in their quest for wealth building.
No one hits a target they cannot see. A vision gives you a goal or a target to hit. It gives you a sense of purpose and direction which is able to tailor your life. A goal setter is indeed a goal getter.
“Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained. But blessed is he, the one keeping the law.” Proverbs 29:18
Our lives would indeed be greatly different if we would invest all that is needed to really know what we want and to continually hold the picture of it in our mind.
“Realize what you really want. It stops you from chasing butterflies and puts you to work digging gold.”- William Moulton Marsden
What Is Financial Freedom?
Financial freedom is the point where your passive income exceeds your expenses.
Your vision is to get to such a point where the assets you have accumulated over time generate enough passive income for you to maintain your lifestyle. This is the vision you need to develop.
You need to create a mental picture of your assets generating enough passive income to pay for your living expenses.
Vision Helps To Maintain Focus
With this vision, the laws of concentration and attention are easily activated to your advantage. Attention is the key to life. Wherever your attention goes, your life goes as well.
When you decide upon a major definite purpose, you increase your level of attentiveness and become increasingly sensitive to anything in your environment that can help you to achieve that goal faster.
Focus simply means:
O – one
The truth is that whatever you focus on will grow. When you focus on wealth creation, your wealth starts to grow.
Vision Empowers To Do The Needful
A vision to be wealthy simply places priority on wealth creation. It empowers you to live below your means and save money for investment. You easily embrace the principle of delayed gratification with joy and excitement. Paying the necessary price to create wealth becomes a thing of pleasure.
“…who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame…..” Heb 12:2
The reason many don’t save is because of lack of strong vision for wealth that would restrain them from reckless or impulsive purchases.
In the final analysis, financial intelligence is all about cash flow management. Vision for wealth helps you to manage and channel your cash in such a way that will facilitate the acquisition of wealth.
A vision to be wealthy will empower you to channel your excess cash into an investment as against using it to buy stuff. You easily know what your financial priorities are, and therefore channel your cash accordingly.
Vision Imparts Necessary Discipline
Vision impacts the necessary discipline that makes wealth building achievable. All it takes to build a great financial empire is a vision and discipline to work on it one step after another. It may not happen overnight but it would surely happen if you’ll keep at it long enough.
“To be successful, you must decide exactly what you want to accomplish; then resolve to pay the price to get it.”-Bunker Hunt
If It Is To Be It Is Up To You.
The mind is just a blank slate, what matters most is what you write on it. It is your responsibility to fill yours with writings, images and pictures of the great financial future you so desire. You must engage yourself in the art of creative envisioning. See yourself as you want to be,
You owe to your financial destiny to visualize and imagine an ideal financial future, well in advance of it becoming a reality. You must spend some time every day, even if it is just a few minutes in doing this.
It is time to take charge of your financial future by developing a great financial vision.
