2) Once you realize your purpose, you will begin to have a vision. Proverbs 29:18 says .Where there is no vision, the people perish.. A vision is the first step toward turning your motivation into inspiration. A person with a vision sees down the road. He can sense what it will be like six weeks, six months, a year, two years, five years and more ahead.
But how do you get a vision? you ask. First, of course you need to sense your purpose. But having done this, you need to narrow your perspective. You can‘t attempt to ride off in all directions at once,. so to speak. Try to decide what it is you are looking for, so you‘ll know it when you see it. In other words, try to have in mind some general goals as to where you want to be six months a year, etc. from now. These goals will not only form the basis of your motivation but should also serve to limit to an extent the scope of your activity.
Next, try to locate and choose an opportunity (business, career or job) which you feel is right for you—which will fulfill your purpose and thus further your vision. This may be easier said than done, as there are many choices which sound good. You may come upon an outstanding one right away, purely by chance. If so, latch onto it. But you will probably have to pick several at first and study the things which each one offers and try to evaluate the potential of each one as you see it. Settle on the one which you feel has the most potential with the least amount of hassle(preferably one that is totally Internet driven as opposed to one where you have to spend time calling potential prospects by phone). (More on focus in Chapter 9.)
