Seeing an inspired vision in your head, and turning it into actually living out that inspired life, is a lot like running a race. There are several factors one needs to consider before one can arrive at a logical conclusion of how long it will take from going to seeing the finish line to actually arriving at it.

One factor or is what type and how long the race is. The larger and more complex the vision is, the more training and time it will take to arrive there. The shorter the distance and less complicate it is, the less time it will take to arrive there.

Another factor is how much time a person is willing to put into developing grit, endurance, and patients when it comes to training so that when they actually start running the race, they are sure to make it to the finish line. If someone signs up for a marathon, but they do not train before they participate, they are sure to fail. So before you start reaching for your inspired life, ask yourself, How much time am I willing to put into it? Time into meditation (or visualization) of deleting old programing and reinstalling new programing. Time into listening for the next steps to take while on the road to your Inspired Life? And if you can’t hear it during mediation or visualization, use common sense. Research and impliment. For example, I wanted to be a writer. So it only makes sense to spend time writing each day. It also makes sense to join a writer’s group and get feedback on how I’m doing and how I can improve. The wonderful thing is that we live in an age where almost any question we have can be answered by simply typing the question into a search engine and spending a little time researching from the comfort of our own home or by taking a trip the local library.

Join me tomorrow as I talk about the first tip of how to develop grit, endurance, and patience.
