What’s your vision?
Is it to be a racecar driver, or an olympic medalist? Maybe you want to sing, or be a mom. Either way it’s important to remember that we all have vision. Each and every one of us was born with a God given creative mind. We were made with creativity coursing through us! Regardless of what that looks like to each person your vision is needed and it’s going to change the world.
It’s such an easy thing to forget and to gloss over, but who you are and what you were made to do is no mistake.
But, it doesn’t make pursuing vision easy.
There are days where you are going to cry and scream and you’re going to want to quit. There’s temptation to compare yourself to the better artist, better athlete, better writer. But it’s a lie. You have to remember that you were created with a specific purpose! Believing that though, takes guts!
Imagine living in Michigan as a kid, dreaming of going to school in sunny California and one day making it! That was Butch Hartman. He’d watch TV and imagined what it would be like to go outside and see palm trees rather than snow. He cultivated his raw artistic talent from a young age and he was eventually accepted into an arts program out of high school.
If you think for a second he got there himself though, you’d be wrong. Who you surround yourself with is who you become! Butch surrounded himself with people that lifted him up and made him better.
Little did he know he’d go on and work for Nickelodeon for 20 years. It was never easy, but the people he met, the community he’s grown and the family he’s loved was worth it.
So sure, you have a vision. Maybe you don’t know what it is yet and maybe you do. But at the end of the day it’s who you are, who you hang around with and your commitment to the process that matters! Keep showing up, let people help you and then turn around and help others with what you’ve learned!
Because this isn’t just about your job; this is your life, your marriage, your finances, we need vision in all of it!
