365 Days to a Better You – Day 78

Declare your goals to the world.

Most human creation myths describe the universe being spoken into being. According to these world  views, the power of the word goes clear back to the beginning. In fact, the word is the beginning.

John 1:1 states, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

Whether you agree with this perspective or not, there’s no arguing that there’s a power to declaring your goals to the world. Talking and thinking only get you so far. By declaring, you are aligning energy in support of your goal.

September 12, 1962 President Kennedy gave his famous moon speech at Rich University. He was making a national declaration – an affirmation for the whole nation – that we would land on the moon before the close of the 1960s.

Sadly, JFK did not live to see that day, but the mission was accomplished. That’s the power of declaration. That’s the power you can claim by confidently speaking your goals out loud.

“The Vision Thing”

Today’s Affirmation:

I am a visionary. I see things well ahead of the pack!”

“The vision thing” was a phrase that became popular in political circles in 1987. During an interview with Time Magazine, Vice-president George H.W. Bush answered questions about his inability to clearly articulate his policy positions with a frustrated, “Oh, that vision thing.”

Having a vision is important. It’s important in clarifying our goals and in attracting the help other people in achieving them. People gravitate to people of vision, largely because many of us go through life without one.

Do you have one?

President John F. Kennedy was someone who, in his best moments, could lay out a vision like few other leaders in our history. In 1962, he gave a speech at Rice University (excerpt below) in which he committed The United States to landing a man on the moon before 1960s were over. When he laid out this vision, much of the needed science was more science fiction than science. Yet, Kennedy’s vision and powerful articulation of it galvanized a nation and the kept the vision on track even after his untimely assassination.

What is your vision? It doesn’t have to be as grandiose as going to the moon. It can be as modest or as grand as you wish. Just have one and be ready and able to articulate it when the winds of opportunity come knocking.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.
