We live in challenging times today. We see the rising rate of suicide, depression, company bankruptcies and other tragedies caused by pandemics such as the current coronavirus. Folks get stressed to the point of giving up. How do we then harness our Vision--even during these times?
The purpose of my book is to share principles which can help folks sustain their Vision even as they navigate such life’s turbulences. I hope that after reading this book, someone finds a viable reason to live. I hope that the experiences in my story inspire another person to overcome discouragement, depression and thoughts of suicide. The book encourages folks to never give up nor abandon their God given Vision. As well, the principles I share with the world are not just a prescription for prevention. But rather, I strongly believe that those who open the pages of my book will be inspired to act. As they cultivate personal strength and resolve, they will not only find meaning and purpose for their own lives-but they will also seek ways and means to lift that of other people.
The book motivates all of us to keep on living and learning-despite the various tragic episodes in our lives. Furthermore, I examine the root causes of crisis in society today. I then suggest alternatives to the status quo. As you read on, I trust that you will gain clear thinking and then, your actions will cast out fear. You will discover the truth and error in whatever camp you may find yourself entrenched. Most of the words used in this book as well as other references have been broken down for clarity. For instance, I define Vision as "the view of our end from the beginning." I examine the factors of Vision, its power and role. I then wrestle with the discipline required to leverage one’s potential to succeed despite any possible deterrence.
Vision alone can be dormant if its bearer is passive. The principles I suggest will encourage folks to cultivate their momentum to harness their Vision. I emphasize that we were all born with the potential to solve a specific community crisis. I offer personal, general, and biblical references to support these ideas. I evaluate the standard and specific methods of success which in turn can determine your resolve to stay the course----especially for the larger good of humanity.
Finally, I discuss the two factors which we cannot fight or avoid: Time and Change. They are constant. Therefore, to harness our vision(s), I suggest ways to accept these factors, understand them, and then manage them throughout your life’s journey. I then offer strategies to help in choosing your destiny. In this book, you will find the specific questions to ask and answer while readjusting your plan for success..
