The New Walk as 3 Vision Killers.
As you take risks and learn from your New Walk – the top three things that kill your vision come from Immaturity, Foolishness & Pride. These Three Vision Killers close doors of opportunity quickly and create a sense of no light at the end of the tunnel and lead to avoidance and numbing out if left unchecked.
These Vision Killers also can leave you with a sense of being mis-understood as well if you are on a New Walk quest and do not understand what is going on.
It is not all about opening doors of opportunity – as the reality of doors opening means a consequence of the opposite – closing doors as well.
This is not about doors being closed on you – but learning to close doors intentionally by YOU.
This is about letting some things go.
It is also about making some difficult choices and decisions based on that it may not be about the people you are pointing fingers at or blaming others for your life challenges – as if you point your finger at one person, look at your finger pointing hand – you will see a few other fingers pointing back AT YOU!
Vision killers are immaturity, foolishness, pride and also the opinions of other peoples immaturity, foolishness and pride = creating a lack of understanding.
Being around someone funny is one thing and comedy can only be taken for so long as it can be draining to laugh for a long amount of time. Comedy Club shows are only so long – and when comedians come off stage, many are regular people and only perform when they are ‘on’, and separate their lives for being ‘on’ and being ‘off’.
But when you are around someone that is ‘foolish’ constantly – it is draining…and the foolish individual doesn’t even know it and is wondering why life is not moving in the direction he reads about in other peoples life or see’s them living out with success. Success seems like a light at the end of the tunnel.
Being Funny is one thing – being Foolish is not funny nor is it not related to anything resembling the art of comedy – it is living from immaturity that is sensed in the heart by others and is many times repelled and in the long run closes doors of opportunity.
When you decided to live out a Vision and want to open doors it can be frustrating to take a risk and realize it is going no where because of doors being closed or you are not being taken seriously and levels of trust are hard to establish until a sense of maturity to engage with you is established.
Setting boundaries with yourself to mature and to gain wisdom is difficult if you are stuck in immaturity, foolishness and pride – and many times it is a matter of your own perspective more so than something you are born with and this is promising for those of you that feel you are stuck in a mindset of immaturity.
When you establish boundaries with yourself – which is called: Self Control – just that action of establishing boundaries alone is a sign of maturity and will be encouraged by others (and be on guard for those who have or will not establish boundaries with themselves). A discussion with you on the hot topics of your life will reveal areas that lack Self-Control and many times indicate areas of immaturity, foolishness and pride.
Your actions are more of an indicator to the world of who you are. Step out of immaturity in your actions and this reveals the development of a leader. As this is more powerful than reading a book on leadership and talking the talk.
There are a lot of immature leaders out there talking the talk.
Another vision killer is the ‘fake it till you make it’ philosophy – works for some – as you have to try to do something outside your comfort zone or experience zone to develop confidence – so, intention is key for how you incorporate your vision. Building confidence with authentic vision and walking that out in discomfort but with your head held high in humility is desirable compared to faking it till you make it while filled with Pride. Pride can fill your heart when you walk something out faking it and getting a positive response from it. You build a Prideful Perspective from doing this over and over.
Guard your heart for sure – but walking out in humility, asking questions, engaging with people from good intentions and learning from them builds confidence backed up with inner Maturity to fuel your walk.
You influence people through your hearts intentions based on manipulation or inspiration – so this is where your intention comes from in your heart and is sensed by other people as if they are picked up like invisible energy waves and sensed in their own heart and spirit as to whether they are negative or positive.
Having a desire of being Understood comes from the foundational message based on Proverbs 20:5 – Proverbs overall is filled with examples of how you can learn to be understood with other peoples Maturity, Wisdom and Humility – as those things can be drawn out of you – and this is the foundation of a New Walk.
