Settling Down To Pursue Your Vision Properly

Humans have a natural tendency to avoid doing work. We always put off doing the work as long as possible. However, as you may have heard, “Hard work is the only shortcut to success.” There are no shortcuts or magic buttons. Some things just take time. It is critical that you settle down and recognise that the vision is for an appointed time (Habakkuk 2:3). It is not a time you choose. The algorithm that determines the timing is unknown to us, mere mortals. This understanding will allow us to run with patience the race that is set before us.

Write your vision and make it clear. Thereafter, perhaps you can manage your expectations by considering how long it took others with a similar vision to achieve it. No matter how big your dreams are or how talented you appear. Please be informed that there is nothing new under the Sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9). People who have walked the earth before you have had similar visions, and it is your responsibility to seek them out and learn what you can. If recorded history shows that it takes 50 years to accomplish the things you want to do, why do you believe you can do it in 5 years?

Embrace the journey. You cannot pray or bribe the process away. You cannot outmanoeuvre your way. Do not be in a hurry. While the end goal is important, the hard work and lessons learned along the way are what truly shape us. While it is natural to want quick results, understanding that great achievements rarely happen overnight is critical. Learn from the experiences of those who have walked similar paths before you, and recognise how their journeys can serve as valuable guides. The vision in your heart will come true at a time determined by God (Galatians 4:1-2). Approach your work with that perspective.
