This post has little to do with sports law in particular, but it is a thought as I have been chasing my dreams within sports law lately in a more proactive manner. Throughout my life I have been trying to learn my purpose and develop a vision for my future so that I know what I am working toward every day. In doing so, I believe I have gotten closer to finding that purpose, which has in turn helped me in developing a vision and plan in trying to fulfill that purpose. This should be applicable to all—not just aspiring sports lawyers.
An important part of having a dream and turning that dream into a reality is having a purpose and developing a vision. Vision is indispensable when it comes to a dream chase. Purpose allows for vision, which brings goals, challenges, passion, and strategy.
Without developing a purpose and vision for what you want to accomplish, you’re going nowhere. The vision that is provided through having a purpose allows for motivation and direction in whatever you are trying to accomplish. Setting goals through your vision allows you to have a tangible target to attain.
Developing a purpose will motivate you, give you power to live in the present, and drive you to want to develop plans both now and later for whatever vision you have or goals you want to accomplish.
Once purpose is found, a vision for what needs to be accomplished becomes attainable. Vision is what ignites the passion and drive within every person to become great at whatever it is they want to accomplish. Vision provides clarity, goals, passion, and, most importantly, a tangible target or place for one to reach.
Find your purpose, develop your vision, and finally, take the leap and pursue your vision and goal with everything you have.
Though this is not meant to be solely a blog for motivational readings, it (finding motivation) is obviously a huge part of my thought process and daily routine as I pursue my dreams in becoming a sports lawyer. I hope some find this helpful and motivating.
More blog posts are on the way as I am going through my first week at the University of Oregon Law School Summer Sports Institute and I hope you will give them a read.
Thank you for reading and God Bless.
“Vision is everything for a leader. It is utterly indispensable. Why? Because vision leads the leaders. It paints the targets, sparks and fuels the fire within, and draws them forward.” – John C. Maxwell
