Vision vs Dream - Know the Difference!
July 01, 2016
In my 47 years of life I have suffered greatly. A long time ago I made a promise that if I was given the opportunity to be well and live a vibrant, healthy life again I would choose to serve others. By making this choice, I solidified my Vision - to create 'A Xenoestrogen-Free World'. The Vision I have been entrusted with is what sustains me in all I do. I work from the end of my life backwards to achieve life for others I may never get to meet or know.
My Vision many times has been perceived by those around me as a dream. This perception however is incorrect and can cause confusion. There is a difference between working to fulfill a dream or being engaged in a Vision. Knowing the difference is crucial to understanding why I do what I do and it can help you to achieve incredible things too!
A dream is a wish, a hope, a desire.
Vision produces purpose, meaning and direction.
A dream one is hopeful to fulfill.
Vision one is driven to achieve.
A dream never satisfies and causes one to seek more.
Vision provides unceasing and unending contentment.
A dream is wishful thinking.
Vision is revealed truth.
A dream is generated by internal cravings.
Vision is created by something greater than oneself.
A dream is an indulgent selfish aspiration.
Vision is selfless, magnanimous and incorruptible.
A dream is perceived as a right and a solo possibility.
Vision is accepted as a gift and impossible to accomplish alone.
A dream one can quit on.
Vision never leaves you, it is a burning within.
A dream once achieved provides hunger for more and dissatisfaction of what one has obtained. When Vision is achieved it provides a deep satisfaction that lasts a lifetime!
Problems do not deter or weaken me, they excite and inspire me. They create a strength to continue towards the Vision I have been entrusted with. When I encounter trials they create a STRENGTH in me like NOTHING I've ever known. How else can real Vision be proven true except to go through challenges and struggles on the road to success!
The oxymoron of Vision is that many times it is imparted to one through a difficulty in life. Oddly Vision is even revealed through dreams - yes the kind that leaves sleep in your eyes of course.
