In basic biology studies, we were taught about the animal cell and the different parts of it that comes together to serve the body well. There is a part of the animal cell that is commonly referred to as the power house (mitochondria), because of the major function of being the part of the cell that supplies the energy (in form of Adenosin Triphospate) required for the cell to function well. Other parts have their functions truly, but the mitochondria happens to be a core part of the cell.
Am sorry to bother your intelligent mind with all those science terms. However, the instance I gave is useful to my discussion with you.
The eyesight of the eagle is generally accepted to be one of the strongest of all animals as it is estimated to be 4 – 8 times stronger than that of the human eyes. This character helps it to identify its prey easily, and enables it to gather all resources required to capture the prey.
Just like the mitochondria and especially the eagle’s sight, it is essential that we have a vision/picture in our heart of an expected destination before we start out on the voyage to achievements.
Vision will give you the reason to step out and help you gather enough strength to face different circumstances on the voyage.
When rejections arise your vision will power you to continue, when you are feeling lazy the same vision will release the energy for you to step out and take initiatives.
Finally, my dear friend :
It is easier to identify where you are going when you eventually get there if you are running with a vision. Lack of the right vision cause you to target aimlessly, and most times it leaves you with no strong reason that should make you continue on the journey.
Need an action point, then you should see this:
1.I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.
2. And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
3. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
(Habakkuk. 2:1–3, KJV)
