Thought For Today
If you want to build a new house you must have a plan. You'll need to hire an architect and workers and to purchase the supplies that you need. By having a vision of the house you want in your mind you not only keep yourself focused on your goal but you continuously give yourself the encouragement and incentive that you need to keep working hard.
If having a clear vision of your goal is important in building your dream house how much more vital is it to have a clear and compelling vision for the plan and purpose of your life. Rebbe Nachman of Breslev says that we must find the time to think about the kind of life that would be best for us and then to get used to keeping that vision of our goal alive and before us at all times. By doing this, we will be able to avoid the inevitable distractions that come up and keep ourselves running with inspiration in the right direction.
With blessings, dear friends,
