Difference Between A Vision and Your Option

A Vision
written by Samuel Kwame Boadu
A Vision : If you grew up in a middle or low-class setting, you will agree with me that most decisions you made back then were programmed by what those of the high class do. You want to speak like them, act like them and even afford what they have. As you grow, you will begin to realise that you can actually be more than them but you will need to work 10x ( times ) more than they do because you lack the structures they already have in place.
.
Now, this is the same with your vision. When you desire to pick on a vision and drive it, you must understand that everyone’s journey to actualising their purpose and vision is different. What you see is different from what the other person sees. This is why you must guard your thoughts and stay focused. Do not allow people who do not understand your purpose and vision to come into your journey process. Stop trying to convince them about that big vision of yours. The more you try, the more they are pushed to relegate your efforts to the background. I began to grow faster when I took this as one of my ideologies.
.
See!
.
Your parents might not know the reason you spend time on that project. Your friends might not understand why you are paying for courses, attending events, and buying books instead of spending on bottles and designers’ wear. Your uncles and aunts might not understand why you do not want to give up that dream for a position in their business firm. They don’t understand because they haven’t tried doing what you are doing. Your vision is stronger than their options.
.
People will condemn your efforts and want you to stop doing what you are doing. They would jeer at the fact that you want to build a business from your skill, and because they are yet to see results, they keep convincing you to give up. Don’t! They don’t understand because they haven’t built anything. Until they do, you should not listen to them.
.
Again, your vision is stronger than their options.
.
The same goes for you.

“Do not criticise people’s efforts if you have not built anything.” – Paa Kwasi Boadu (My Dad Adviced)
.
This should be a guide for you, especially as someone who hopes to get to the peak of your business and career. Talking bad about people’s efforts only leaves them depressed and with the thoughts of giving up.
Instead of talking down on them, encourage them and make them see the possibility of getting it right. Help them believe in themselves and be of great support to them in words and action. This way, you help them build their vision without necessarily succumbing to the options society throws at them.
.
Once again, Do not allow people who have not done anything to distract you on your journey. Do not distract others. FOCUS! Stick to your vision. Ignore their options.
