“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” – Joel A. Barker
There’s going to be a lot of doors that are going to open up for you in life and those doors can either lead you down the light path: the path to your highest calling on this planet, the vision you have for yourself, your family, your future, your wife, your kids, your great grandchildren, that generational vision that you have for yourself.
It can lead you down the dark path: the path of trials, tribulation, resistance and things that aren’t serving you, like addictions, or distractions.
There’s the light and there’s the darkness in life.
And where we choose to FOCUS is fundamentally important.
Redirecting Your Focus
If you’re 25-30 years old, these are your prime time years to really figure out what your vision is and to focus on that vision.
You see, growing up, I was good at a lot of different things and I kind of used that to my advantage to get really good at something and then quit, over and over again. I had this pattern of not really focusing on my big vision or what I wanted to be truly successful at and it manifested itself in relationships, it materialized itself in my businesses that I started and it ultimately started shaping my life into something I didn’t want it to be.
So if I could leave you with this, my friend, I would say that every day, start the first 5 minutes of getting clear on what your vision is.
A great book that I read is Think And Grow Richby Napolean Hill. I know you’ve probably read it by now, but if you haven’t, check it out and if you have, read it again. This book is all about self-development and growth and attracting not only monetary wealth into your life, but wealth and success into all other aspects as well. I know it helped me with directing my focus and I know it can help you too.
Manifesting Your Vision
Every day, focus on your vision. I made my vision really clear for myself, I actually put a note on my bathroom mirror and in my closet and I also carried a little 3X5 note card around in my wallet every single day of what I wanted to do, who I wanted to become, the impact that I wanted to make, the financial wealth that I wanted to accumulate and the type of person that I wanted to be.
You probably have one of those little 3X5 cards sitting around your house right now, or maybe you have the little sticky notes? Everybody has those sticky notes. Grab those, put them all over your house. People are going to look at you like you’re crazy, but I’m telling you, your subconscious mind – even if you’re not reading those notes directly, my friend – you’re picking them up.
Your subconscious mind is so smart! It comprehends 500 words every single minute. If you’re not reading books on 3X speed on Audible, you are missing the boat. Alright, it may take you a bit to warm up to that, but you got it, trust the process.
Write that in the comments below: TRUST THE PROCESS and also write down FOCUS, because that’s what this is about. Every decision that you have to make in life is either a time earner, or a time burner and those decisions can either lead you into darkness, or lead you into the light.
The Choice Is Yours
The only thing that you’re really able to control in your life is the ability to choose your thoughts about the choices that you make and make sure those thoughts, those choices are building you up and not tearing you down and are also building other people up.
If it’s still about you – if you’re stuck in the mindframe that it’s “still about ME, is this serving ME, is this job making ME enough money” – you’re completely missing the boat. I promise you, if you start making your actions and intents about others too, it can turn your whole life around.
Hopefully this resonated with you. My goal in this is for you to FOCUS, say no to the distractions and say yes to your higher vision of who you are.
Remember, we’re in this together.

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
