Everything that mankind has created began as an image in someone's mind. The ability to conceive of something that does not yet exist and bring it into reality is a mark of greatness.
However, this ability alone is not sufficient. To manifest one's idea into actuality requires more than creativity and vision; it takes courage, persistence, and determination. There are many talented and creative people whose ideas never made it past the drawing board due to fear, shame, and self-doubt.
Those daring individuals whose ideas come into existence have a level of faith few possess. What they see in the mind to them is as real as if it were already here. For various reasons, they are compelled to create the image in their mind, whether it be a business, an invention, or a relationship.
Maintain focus on your vision despite your circumstances
To become one of these extraordinary people, develop the image in your mind with as much clarity as possible. Then meditate on it as an achieved reality until you experience the emotional state of having accomplished it already. Next, as the inevitable challenges and obstacles arise, maintain your focus on your vision despite whatever setback is attempting to deflate you emotionally.
The last part is the key to your success - the ability to maintain your drive and enthusiasm while problems are breaking out around you. Everyone talks about mindset. This is what mindset is in essence and why it is so important. True faith sees that which is not yet visible and is certain of one's capacity to bring that vision into the realm of the visible.
Today, develop your vision with emotional intensity. Pursue your goal or dream with tenacity and gratitude. Finally, maintain your level of belief despite the circumstances that are impeding your objectives. Have faith in God, The Universe, or whatever power you believe in. Your desire and vision is a gift from the divine, and you will be given whatever resources you need to manifest it. Have Faith!
