Jesse Wilkerson: Get a vision for your personal success

Have you ever wanted to just wipe the slate clean? Have you ever wanted to get a fresh start? What would it be like to take an eraser and wipe away 10 years of your choosing from your life?

Wouldn’t that solve some of the problems that still reside in your heart related to your past or the past of others? Wouldn’t that make you feel so much better?

It seems like an easy solution? Erase 10 people you wish you would have never met. That might just erase 100 things you wish you had never done. Let alone 1,000 things you wish you never said. Oh, if life had an eraser! I know exactly the place to start.

Well, we might not be able to find an eraser big enough, but we can build a plan that will allow us to operate with the wisdom we have gained over the years. A plan that will amplify our focus and keep us away from some of the pitfalls that have betrayed us.

With a vision in mind, our pursuit of success becomes tangible. Our road map becomes our anchor through the most tumultuous times of life. What is success? Where does it come from? Where do we start in order to make sure we get there?

What if we could unlock the inner court of our ambition and open our hearts to a successful vision of our future?Doing so takes focus. Success is an inside job! It takes a realistic vantage point of our life, our motives and our deepest desires.

The human body is fascinating -- in particular the organs that help it function properly. When I think of focusing I refer back to nature and the organ of the eye. In order to focus, the initial thing that has to happen is that there must be light that enters into the eye. Once the light is there we begin a process of contracting and or relaxing muscles that ultimately allow us to focus.
