How Do You Define See

Have you ever heard someone say, “I will believe it when I see it.” This statement can either be full of truth or insane depending on the definition of seeing. When an architect designs a building, he will “see” the completed project before he begins to draw the dimensions and plans on a blueprint. In a conceptual way, he actually reverse engineers the building from the finish point back to where the foundation is laid.

In any design, faith and belief in the project come before having and this is accepted as a matter of course. Why do we expect the circumstances of our lives to be any different? Some people expect an ironclad guarantee and expect a straight shot to success in all endeavors. We all know that this is not how life works. Life is a journey with a series of steps. Each step builds another layer until, if the proper course is kept, success is achieved.

Many times along the way to having a desired end, course corrections are required and this takes faith and belief in the project and it's successful conclusion. If instead you stand in one spot and wait for your desire to pop into your hand before you believe it can happen, you will be waiting for a while.

Just as when starting a college curriculum, you have faith and believe that you will attain the job you desire before you actually have the job. With the cost of college you must keep a strong faith and belief in order to make the investment a good one. Extraordinary achievements are made daily by those who have faith and belief in their endeavor even when the odds are stacked against them. I often hear from others stories of why success cannot be achieved today. Yet there is someone out there right now today making that same success come true with their faith and belief.

Everyday someone gets a new job, buys a new car, moves into their dream home, goes on an adventurous vacation, or gets married to a partner they love. Why shouldn't it be you that makes your dreams come true. Each of us has the same allotted time each day and an equal mixed bag of opportunities and challenges that face us. What makes the difference in who will live the life they want is in how they define the word see. If you see in your imagination what you want and through faith and belief work towards that goal with perseverance, you will achieve it. If instead you wait for it come to you before you will actually believe in it, time will pass and you will continue to wait.

Have faith and believe in you and what you want. I believe in you and know that you are worth it.

With love, joy, and abundance
