It’s another beginning of the second half of the year. I think we need to start making our vision for this year a reality – We need not to wait anymore. We must be ready to give all it takes for our vision to become a reality.

Most people stopped pursuing their vision when a challenge comes. They will become less passionate and inactive. They will abandon the vision thinking they can continue pursuing it when the trial is over.Such attitude can be very devastating to the fulfillment of a vision. But how Can We Move Towards Making Our Vision a Reality?

1. We must Understand that Suffering is Part of the Journey

There is no fulfillment of vision that is delivered on a platter of gold. And one major key to achieving our vision is the ability to turn the challenges before us to the equivalent change. Meanwhile, this can only happen when we passionately pursue our vision in the midst of a challenge.

2. We must Develop Our God-given Abilities

If we don’t sharpen our gifts and skills in the midst of trials when God is preparing us for what lies ahead, it may be difficult for us to succeed at the verge of breakthrough. Although you may have a great vision, but there are some special abilities you will need to fulfill this vision.

3. We must Deploy Our God-given Abilities

Don’t wait until the trial is over before you begin to practice those special gifts God has deposited inside you. You have to start using them now because they are actually what will announce you and take you from the phase of preparation to the phase of manifestation.

4. We must Grow in Our Relationships

Visions and dreams are never actualized without maximizing relationships. You need to grow in your relationship with God and people. Making your vision a reality needs growth in right relationships.

5. We must be Busy on Purpose

Most times when people say they are busy, they only refer to activities engaging them not being busy making notable progress. Henry David once said, “It’s not enough to be busy, so are the ants. The question is, what are we busy about?” I think we all need to answer this question, what am i busy about?

I like to encourage you to start acting on your vision. It is right action that turns every vision to reality. Stop procrastinating! Get busy doing what will turn your vision into a reality

It is my desire that you will make the best of the second half of this year. It does not matter how you spent the first half, God has given you another opportunity to make your vision a reality – to live out your potential and to accomplish divine purpose. Don’t take God’s privilege for granted.

Great piece. It’s also important that we know that our dreams is ours. That is, we are not trying to fulfill our parents, mentor or spouse dream. It must be a dream that is borne out of our innate purpose.
