INTRODUCTION

A Career can be defined according to the concise oxford dictionary of English as one’s advancement through life, especially in a profession. It is the progress through history of a group or institution. It is a profession or occupation.

A career is an ambition driven by vision. The quality of vision is what defines the quality of the ambition.

As young people just starting out in life, there is need to have a good understanding of vision and ambition.

One works by faith, while the other is made real by works.

What is Vision? 

·         Vision is the unfolding of God’s divine plan for man. 
·         Vision reveals God’s master plan for Man. Jeremiah 1:5, 29:11
·         Vision is seeing the end at the beginning. Isaiah 46:10
·         Vision is your ability to discover what God has finished but intends for you to start.
·         Vision is what you see from God’s word that empowers your ambition. 

What is Ambition?

Ambition is the spur that makes man struggle with destiny: it is heaven’s own incentive to make purpose great, and achievements greater.

The instinctive impulse to keep pushing on and up is the most curious and the most interesting thing in human life.

Without this desire to get on and up, this God – urge, everything, even the universe itself would collapse. Inertia would bring everything to a standstill.

Ambition is what adds action to vision to bring about a manifestation.  James 2:20, 26

Vision without a corresponding action (ambition) is dead. Philippians 3:13-15

The cravings for something higher and better is the best possible antidote or remedy for bad habits which one wishes to get rid of.

Vision and ambition knocks early. 

Most young people seem to think that vision and ambition is a quality that is born in one and which cannot be materially changed, but the greatest vision and ambition may be very materially injured in many different ways.

The habit of
procrastination, of postponing, the habit of picking out the easier task and putting off the difficulty ones, for example, will very easily impair the vision and ambition.

Vision and ambition often begins very early to knock for recognition.

The Personality behind Vision and ambition.

Recognition of the voice of the Holy Spirit early in life inspires vision and motivates us to act accordingly.

The Holy Spirit is the driver of every worthy vision.

Vision without the Holy Spirit will always lead to confusion.

Be careful how you discourage or refuse to heed that inner voice which commands you to go forward, for if you do, it will become less and less insistent until finally it will cease to prod you, and when ambition is dead deterioration has set it.

That inner call to go forward, to push on to a higher good, is god’s voice: heed it. It is your best friend and will lead you into light and joy.
