Metaphorically our eyes speak of VISION, and vision is a key component for success in life.
Jonathan Swift said: "Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others."
Ideas for a new product, new book, new service, new company or even a solution that will fix a problem seems to elude most people. It comes to those who stretch their ability to see what others don't.
Walt Disney once said, "If you can dream it, you can do it."
Every day of your life you should look for opportunities and move towards them. Too many people see opportunities after they have passed by and say, "I wish I had thought of that." Well, you have the ability to see those things just as much as anyone else, but first first it's vital that you see yourself as a success, and then act on what you see.
The process of visualization requires your imagination to work together with your eyes. Your ability to visualize will contribute to your vision becoming a reality. There's a Proverb that says, "Where there is no vision people perish." How true that is.
Florence Chadwick wanted to be the first woman to swim the Catalina Channel, so she trained for years. During her first quest the clouds began to settle in along with rough waters. She saw nothing but a solid wall of fog ahead of her as her body became numb. Although her mother and trainer were next to her in a small boat to encourage her not to quit, she finally asked to be pulled out of the bone chilling water.
What she didn't know at the time was that she was only a half mile from the shore of Catalina Island. During her interview she told a reporter, "Look, I'm not excusing myself, but if I could have seen land I might have made it." She was unable to see or visualize her goal. So two months later she tried again and this time kept a vision of the island in her mind even though the fog once again tried to stop her from accomplishing her goal.
Your eyes must see yourself becoming a success before you become a success
