So for 2010 I challenge you to write your VISION STATEMENT. I'm borrowing this text from one of my favorite bishops, Bishop T.D. Jakes. Vision, Purpose, & Goals... What is your vision? What is your purpose? What are your goals?
1. Vision - what do you see?
2. Purpose - why do you see it?
3. Goals - how are you going to get it?
Why are you the way you are? God has given you everything you need for what he has called you to do.
Most of my life I have been in charge of something, even when I didn't really want to be. I come from a family that talks loud and loves to laugh (loudly I might add) lol. So I get it innocently. I had nothing to do with how I was created. Many peers have hated me for it. Many people have admired me for it. Many men have been attracted to me for it.
I'm the oldest of five but there were only four at the time of my childhood. So, I have been directing and producing the lives of my siblings for years. My mother made me responsible for the well-being of three other individuals when she was not around. The oldest child has it rough. Everything is our fault whether we did it or not. All I could remember was what happened in the end, that was all that mattered. This is still how I produce and direct my projects to this day. It doesn't matter how I get there, all that matters is how it looks in the end. Will it get me in trouble or will I get a good report? Therefore, I always aim for a good report - A.
As I close I want you to think about how your childhood ties into your vision that God has embedded in you. What are you doing to reach your destiny? Think about your true vision - what makes you so happy that you would really deep down inside do it for free. For me, it's directing.
