In the Holy Scriptures, the prophet Habakkuk is instructed to ‘Write the vision, make it plain.’ He is therefore reminded of his power to rewrite – or edit – the vision. We must not fear our ‘editorial power’, our ability to rewrite our story. I say editorial power because we as humans alone have the gift of imagining and reimagining how we want our lives to be; we alone have the power to write and re-write our stories, our dreams, our hopes and our aspirations. But most people fear this editorial gift – they withdraw from it because they have become demoralized with the first draft. Soon, they just give up. Before long, others have begun to write their stories.
If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you will fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much! –Jim Rohn
On your computer you have two options in editing a document: redo or undo. Did you know that you’ve been given that same power in life? You can give your life a ‘redo’ – you can do it over and over and over until you get it right. You can also ‘undo’ the damage others have done; you can refuse to allow any person to live rent-free in your space of peace and serenity. You can undo confusion for peace, fear for courage and hate for love. You have that power!
