“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. . . He who looks outside, dreams.  He who looks inside, awakens.” ~Carl Jung

Everybody wants things and has dreams, but that’s not enough if you want to be the best. You have to be willing to pay the price, and to pay such a price, you have to “See It” first and then be accountable to it.  Unfortunately…much of life is camouflaged.  If your life or career becomes monotonous your head starts to tilt downward. It’s unconscious. You don’t even know you’re doing it–but keeping your head down prevents you from looking up.  Yogi Berra was right when he said, “You can see a lot just by lookin’!”

Discernment is the ability to see things deeply—beyond the obvious and below the surface.  A hawk soars along hunting for prey hiding in the brush.  Because of its extraordinary eyesight the hawk sees what’s hidden just under the ground clutter and so gets its reward.  Discernment is like having the eyes of a hawk.  It enables you to see below the surface of things.  If you’re going to successfully traverse the unpredictable, often rough and treacherous waters of life you’ll need the ability to read the currents below. 

Power of WHO Tips

  1. As you begin to think about pursuing dreams and goals, you’re going to need to give yourself a “time-out.”   A time to disengage.  You have to regularly clear your thoughts.  This is best accomplished in a calm, quiet, soothing environment that inspires—a place where the constant noise of the regular world is not heard.
  2. A “time-out” could keep you from getting stuck for several more years in a job/relationship that leads to another dead end. 
  3. Read, walk, pray, meditate, watch a good sunset—whatever stills the pond—whatever gets you off the treadmill.  If you don’t take this seriously you will, more than likely, settle for just another counterfeit.
  4. There are millions of people who never do this, so they remain stuck where they are.  They’re not willing to take the risk of being alone with just their thoughts, or they don’t really believe they’ll discover anything new.  Don’t be part of that crowd.  It’s a dead end.
  5. Keep looking up with an expectant, hope-filled heart and you will encounter some things that will have a deep, restorative effect.  Life will surprise you sometimes with something so wonderful you can’t believe it.
  6. When you rediscover what makes you feel fulfilled, satisfied, and content, you will have accomplished something very significant.
