“A visionless life is not worth living”.
One of Linus Okorie’s best quotes is this, “when a man does not have a purpose of waking up, sleeping becomes interesting”.
While many people are physically awake they are actually sleeping when it comes to pursuing visions.
How do you know visionless people?
They are the ones always available to escort others achieve their goals.
Anyone who reaches out to them with an idea is certain that they will be available to join the train. They are always available to follow without the ability to attract others to their own visions; because there is really none.
They are the ones who spend hours talking about other people who are chasing their visions.
Visionless people are prone to envy and jealousy, because they don’t have anything spectacular in their lives that attracts adoration and applauding, they vent their frustration on those who are chasing their visions.
For example, if you have the vision to be the best street sweeper, you won’t be bothered or threatened by a friend who is being celebrated as the best medical doctor.Ambition is free and everyone is at liberty to draw ambitions and run with it.
So there’s no reason for bitterness or competition.
From your family, environment and country, there are more than enough ideas that can catalyse your ability to generate visions.
Do you have a vision?
Do you have a desire that makes you embrace everyday with hope and faith as it draws you closer to the actualisation of that desire?
If not, find one.
For it is when you have a vision you start living!
Stop existing, and start to live!
