I have never really been good at the typical school system. Through out my life I have only been able to barely get by in school. I hated the system where it seemed that the way you were judged to be able to succeed was if you could remember something long enough to write it down on a test, not only write something down but write it well, as in no grammar mistakes. No I didn’t write well and I was always slow on tests, I never really got much higher than a C on those things. The thing is I know a lot of people who are really good with the whole school system and were honored because they were such good students and were thought to be able to succeed in life.
I personally have realized something in the last few years. Life and success is not about if you are or are not good at getting high grades. Life and success is about realizing the vision God has given you. A vision is what I did receive at a young age. I won’t go into detail with what my vision is in this blog, but from the very beginning I have been perusing my vision taking classes and working hard during school.. Away from school I continue to walk out the things (Vision) I have been called to do.
I see so many who have “succeeded” in the publics standard but don’t have a clue as to what they want to do. They think that after a few years of college they might find out what to do in life and what their true vision for their life will be. But at the moment most of my peers don’t care. I have known many people that in all aspects are considered smart, honorary students, but they have no Idea of what their calling is.
If there is one thing that this world needs, it would be vision. God has given us all a talent and vision for our lives and we can not afford to have it go un-noticed. To live out our lives fulfilling just our needs is not enough. In life you must find your vision, even if that means going the unconventional way and not going to collage or not taking the classes that you or your parents think you are suppose to take. Going to college or succeeding in classes means nothing if there is no vision behind it. Let the vision God has given you be first in life and the rest will follow.
