I HAVE A SECRET
I have a secret.
There are only a few people who know it completely but many others who know bits and pieces of it.
This secret is one of my most valued possessions.
Like an old faded wallet picture, I carry this secret around with me everywhere I go. Sometimes I just sit and daydream about it for hours. Other times, I wish I could burn it.
It is big, scary, inspiring, and inescapable. It wakes me up at crazy hours in the early morning. There are times when this secret is a source of great satisfaction and power. And there are other times it is the most frustrating thing in my life.
SO, WHAT IS THE SECRET?
This secret is the imaginary picture of who I, Lance Miller want to be in this lifetime. If you could plug me into a 75” 4k TV, you would see an amazing array of dreams, goals, and purpose all rolled up into one gigantic mosaic of what I call my vision. More specifically, my Personal Vision.
It is something I have worked on my entire adult life. It has grown and changed and morphed but has always retained its original core image from when I was 21 years old. It is decades old.
This secret, or rather personal vision, is so treasured and priceless to me.
Because vision is the most powerful force in the universe.
VISION IS A GODLY GIFT
The right vision gives you hope. It creates energy. It fuels your mind. It helps you make decisions. It tells you not to settle for 2nd best. It keeps you going another mile. It gets you out of bed in the morning. It tells you that the limitations you have today are temporary.
It is the good angel sitting on your shoulder whispering inspiration in your ear. It is an internal compass pointing you to your true north.
My success in every area of my life is powered the vision of how I see my future world. This personal vision includes my purpose, relationships, health, family, money, business and more. It encompasses everything about me.
WHAT IS THE TAKEAWAY?
If you want your best life, it starts with your secret. Acknowledge your deepest hopes, dreams, and desires.
Formally embrace them. Let them become your vision of the future. Your future.
