“Clarity is the light that brightens our future, the tool that sharpens our skill, shapes our dreams and goals and fuels our passion”
There is little one can actually do in life without clarity. For me, clarity is a very important aspect of success. You will struggle if you lack clarity about your life, your finance, what you want to achieve and where you are going to in life.
More often than not people think that the reason they are suffering is because of their lack of resources, but I sincerely disagree with that. Years ago I was listening to Zig-Ziglar, in his speech I heard something important, a statement which I believe shaped my life and how I look at things. Zig said and I quote him;
“How can you hit a target you cannot see, and how can you see a target you do not have”
As cliché as it may sound, Zig’s statement shaped my life, but not as much as this did. One day I was invited to teach in a business school. Midway to the end of my presentation, I stopped and quoted Zigs quote. But I ended the quote with this statement;
“How can you hit a target without Clarity?”
Let’s face it; it will be very difficult for you to hit any target you are aiming at if you don’t have a clear shot. You can’t just shoot for shooting sake or because you feel like shooting. If a sniper does that, he is 99% likely to tit the wrong target. Similarly, is true for your life. You have to be clear about you are venturing into or you are bound to fail at it.
CLARITY & FOCUS
Focus will be far from you if you lack clarity. How can one focus on achieving what he is not clear about? You have to understand that your success depends not only on the decision you have made to succeed, but on how clear you are about what you are pursuing.
One can only be fully focused on a target he wants to hit when he is clearly convinced about the end result. Lack of clarity retards and limits your focus and without focus success is unlikely. You will struggle if you lack clarity because clarity fuels your focus.
“It’s a lack of clarity that creates chaos and frustration. Those emotions are poison to any living goal.”
― Steve Maraboli
Living a life without clarity is like embarking on a journey without a map or direction. I have seen people waste away their time and life because they were working without direction and clarity. They are doing all the work, but don’t know what they will get from it, they have no idea if they will either crash or sink their do they know if they will soar high all they do know is that they are doing something to avoid being called LAZY or jobless.
“A lack of clarity could put the brakes on any journey to success.” ― Steve Maraboli
I have seen people serve for years, yet they don’t know what the future holds for them. They leave their lives at the mercies of others, their environment or government. They have no idea of how their day will start and how it will end, all they know is that the day started and it has ended. They have no idea of where they will be in the next few minutes or hour. Why? Because they are not clear and sure of what their boss wants them to do.
Don’t misunderstand me and start hating on your boss or government or start worrying about your present situation. I want you to know that your government loves you, but guess what, their plans for you is,
That’s if they have one for you at all.
What they will do for you is nothing compared to what you can do for yourself why? Because you carry something great inside of you.
“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.” ― Zig Ziglar
Follow One Course Until Success.
Clarity gives no room for distraction. It’s easy to get distracted when you are not really clear about what you tend to achieve at the end of any endeavor. I want you to know that the surest path to success is to have, a clear Vision, a clear plan of Action, and the tenacity and ability to maintain that clarity and focus.
The Oxford dictionary defines focus in a very simple and beautiful way. It defined it as; “The center of interest”
This tells you that to be at the center, in control or the pole position to achieve what you are interested in or at the center of your dreams, you need proper clarity which gives birth to focus.
It’s not enough to say you want something, you have to be at the center of it. You have to be clear about it and then focus on achieving it. If you focus on what you want with clarity, believe me; the limitations will give way and the path will be clear for you to navigate and sail through.

CLARITY ILLUMINATES YOUR FUTURE
Take not of this;
Clarity, unfolds your future, define your purpose and help set your goals and direct your paths to success. Can you imagine a camera man taking a picture without a clear view of the people or person he wants to snap? That picture is likely to be a disaster. Same is true for you. You have to be clear enough before you do anything.
Without clarity on the things you engage yourself in or you have engaged yourself in, you will live an unrewarded life.
WHY? Because the vision was very clear and plain that even a runner can read it while running.
