Write Your Vision | Motivated + (2023)


There are two scriptures that changed my entire life. If you do these two things, it will change your life. If you apply it right now, it can change your existence.

The scripture says "you have not, because you ask not." Do you have any idea how major those words are for you? Most people don't have the life of your dreams because you haven't asked God for it. You've been trying to figure life out and handle it yourself. Well, how is that working out for you?

You have to have a vision board! I don't know nobody wealthy, who don't have a vision board. Scripture says "write the vision and make it plain. So he who reads it will run to it, and even though it will tarry, wait for it. For surely it will come at an appointed time."


Write everything you want from God on a piece of paper, be as detailed as you can. Write down 300 things, open up your imagination. Do not stop until you have 300 things. Read your list every morning and every night. One year from today, go down your list and check off anything that has happened for you.


Do these two things, it will change your life.
#1 You have not, because you ask not. Start asking God.
#2 Write the vision and make it plain. Write your vision down

- I'm gonna give you two things that I want you to do.

If, you do these two things.

It will transform your life.

I'm, a motivational speaker when I'm not doing this and the reason I do really well.

As a motivational speaker, cause I know what I'm talking about.

You looking at somebody been at the bottom before so I'm, not like some rich dude who's momma had some money and gave me some money now I'm telling yall how to get over.

No, Imma tell yall how to get over cause.

I been under., Imma tell yall how to get up cause.

I've been down.


Tell you how to finish cause I got off to a bad start.

Now I'm about to tell you two things.

Now, listen to me.

What I'm about to tell you.

This is for spiritual people, only.

If you're, not a spiritual person, this aint for you.


You don't believe in God.

This aint finna do nothing for you., But, I aint know you was coming so I have no other version.

This is only people who have a faith., You aint gotta be no born-again Christian or nothing like that.

You got to know that that God is God.


You understand, that, I can help you from here.


Give you two things that can change your life.

It's two scriptures that changed my entire life.

It's, very simple., The cold thing about what I'm finna tell you is anybody can do.


This is what I'm finna tell you.

See, I aint about finna talk to you about no education cause.

I aint got one; I flunked out of school.


Had a severe stuttering, problem, I couldn't talk outside my house.

I aint do well in school, ever.

I ended up flunking out of school, I'm on my third marriage, I lost everything, I've owned, twice, I, been homeless and lived in a car for three years.

I'm finna tell you what I know.

This aint, no fancy rich-boy answer, no theories, no, no.

You aint gotta, buy no program to do.


You aint got to go sign.


I'm, telling you right now, what I'm finna tell you.

If you apply it right, now, can change your existence.

Because, everybody I know, wanna be happy, everybody I know wanna be successful.

If, you don't want them two things,! It's something wrong with you.


So, now, here.

There is a scripture that Imma give you.

It's very small scripture.

It's very short.

I, don't even know where it is in the bible.

Somebody, probably know it if I say it, but Imma give it to you.

This scripture changed my life.

You have not, cause.

You ask not.

You have any idea how major those words are for you? You have not, cause.

You ask not.

It's such a simple scripture, but it's in your bible.

It aint, just in rich people's bible.

It's in the same copy you got.

You have not, cause you ask not.

This is the truest statement.

You'll hear me say: today.

Cause, it's true., Most people don't have the life of their dreams, cause you don't ask God for the life of your dreams.

You've been trying to figure it out and handle it.


Well, how that's working out for you? You know how hard that is to do, man? Because I did it.


Did it for 30 some years.

I tried to figure it out.


Man, the simple scripture says, you have not, cause.

You ask not.

If you up your ask, He automatically ups, his give.

You His, child.

God created you He made you.

You aint just here by no accident, you aint here cause of yo momma and daddy.

Where, your mom and daddy come from? Somebody.

Somebody started this whole thing.

God created you.

He gave you these little simple things you could do.

You have not, cause.

You ask not.

Second reason: people don't have what they want and be through with you.

They don't have it written.


This is a very, very important piece to success.

It's, a principle of success.

Every wealthy person knows this.

I, don't know nobody wealthy, don't have a vision.


I, don't know nobody wealthy, don't have their stuff written on a piece of paper.

I, don't know nobody.

I know a lotta people doing.


We have discussed it at great lengths.

They've showed me some of they vision, boards.

Why I had to go back and change.


I went whoa, whoa, whoa.

But, you gotta have a vision.

Board, it's gotta be written, down.

You, know why? Because, that's a scripture, too.

Habakkuk, 2:2, I know where this one at.

Habakkuk 2:2 go home and read that one.

It says, write the vision and make it plain so that he who reads it will run to it, and even though it tarry, that mean take a long time, wait for it.


Surely it will come at an appointed time.

Man, I'm telling you real now.

What I'm, telling you works.

This aint, no magic, trick.

If, you up your ask and you write everything you want from God on a piece paper.

Now here's the exercise, I want you to do.

This gone trip.

You out., Write everything you want from God on a piece of paper, be as detailed as you can.

Write it down.

The object for you is to write down 300 things., Because I, know 300 things that you could use.

It's gone be hard for you.

When you get to number 75.

You gone get stuck because your mind isn't conditioned to think way out there.

So you gone try to stay in your little list.

But I.

Want you just open up your imagination, If.

You could have anything! You wanted, put it on piece of paper.


How many cars? What kinda, cars?, What, color? Where.

You want your next house to be? Do.

You want a summer home? Where, you wanna travel, to., How much! You want in the bank? How much.

Would you like to have to retire? What you wanna leave for your grandkids? How much.

Would you like to give all your siblings? Would you like to one day walk in in there and just give all your family a cheque?, Put everything you want on a piece of paper.

Do, not stop until you have 300 things.

It's gone.

Take you a while, I'm telling you.

When you get to 75 your brain gone, lock, up.

But, keep writing it! Down.

But! Every morning,! Read your list.

I! Don't want you watching tv at night,! I! Want you to read your list, unless it's Family Feud.

(audience laughs) other than that, I, just no, but seriously, take five minutes and read your list: every night, every morning.

One year from today, wait one year from today, and take a pen out and go down on your list and check off anything that has happened for you.

That's on that list.

Listen to me,! If you do that in faith, if you read your list with the expectation that God is gone, do some great things for you, at the end of one year, you will be stunned, absolutely stunned at how much stuff comes off that list.

I promise you, at least 30 things will be off that list., At minimum, 10% of your list will come true.

You know how I know? Cause I know a lot of people that did done it.


You know how I really know? Cause I did it.

When I open up.

My phone, I wish I had it.

My phone is my vision.


My phone aint got picture of no damn dog on it, no sunset.

None of that.

All of my computers have my vision.

Board on it.

Every, iPad, tablet, I got, laptop, I have my vision board on it.


That's the signal I'm sending to God.

That I believe this is what you gone.

Do for me.

I gotta, get a new vision board now cause it's a lot of stuff off that vision board that I put on there like year, ago, two years, ago, that done came true., I'm, telling you, yall.

This how this work.

You have not, cause.

You ask not, and write the vision and make it plain.


Do them two things, starting today.

Write your list.

Read it every morning, every night, one year, check it.

Off, you'll be stunned.

I! Dare you to try that.

Watch and see what God do.

God keep all his promises, I'm just telling you.

Thank yall.

(audience applauds).


How do you write down your vision? ›

Here's a quick breakdown of what to do when formalizing your vision statement:
  1. Project five to 10 years into the future.
  2. Dream big, and focus on success.
  3. Use the present tense.
  4. Use clear, concise, jargon-free language.
  5. Infuse it with passion, and make it inspiring.
  6. Align it with your business values and goals.

What does the Bible say about writing your vision? ›

Hab. 2. [1] I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. [2] And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

Why write the vision? ›

It allows you to align both your personal and professional visions. You can't begin to truly know what you want out of your business or professional life if you don't already know what you want out of your personal life. Creating a written personal vision will help you to identify your values, goals and desires.

How do I know God's vision for my life? ›

Reflect on God's shaping work in your life

Discerning your vision requires time for reflection and processing, as well as the faith to embrace it. It grows from your past and all God has done to shape you. Vision is revealed as you let your life speak.

What is a good vision example? ›

BBC: “To be the most creative organization in the world” Disney: “To make people happy.” Google: “To provide access to the world's information in one click” IKEA: “To create a better everyday life for the many people”
