Don’t be your own vision blocker

It has been awhile since my last post. I have been feeling a bit uninspired lately & it is extremely hard for me to write when I get in that rut. Awhile back though something small occurred which inspired me to write today’s post. So I grabbed my Iphone & started to write.

As I stood at the end of my road waiting for a route taxi (not sure if that is unique to Jamaica) to work a few of my curls fell in my face & blocked my vision for a few minutes; I proceeded to exclaim “Curls you look too good to be a vision blocker.” 



That simple statement uttered in slight annoyance was more powerful than I even realized at the time. 

You see daily we set goals for ourselves & often times wonder why we are unsuccessful even when we ‘put in the work.’ We seldom realize that we are our own vision blockers. We make small excuses & persuade ourselves that we are not good enough or incapable of achieving such goals. We feel like we lack the skills or are for some reason unworthy of success.

Unfortunately, I have been fluent in the art & language of vision blocking. Every time I decide to make bold steps toward my visions I start to hear little voices which usually eventually keep me from taking major leaps. I think my fluency in vision blocking is a result of my tendency to succumb to fear & fear is big enemy of your vision so you definitely have to keep it in check.

Luckily for me, I found some ways to get past my vision blocking habit.

  • I surround myself with positive people who motivate me to keep pushing forward.
  • As an integral part of my morning routine, I listen to motivational sermons, podcasts or YouTube videos to get my mindset right.
  • I ensure that I placed my vision board next to my bed. So I actually see the vision before I start my day. I also have a vision book that I look through every week to remind myself of some of my aspirations.
  • I find that prayer & devotionals help to calm my mindset, so I do that almost every morning or at nights before bed.

Always remember that “Fear only dwells where there is a lack of Faith.” So put on your faith & work towards those visions you have for your life. You owe yourself too much to be your own vision blocker.

Thanks for stopping by
