Many people start vision improvement with a burst of enthusiasm. There is hope for their eyesight problems after all, a path out of the blur! Then when they don’t see fast consistent progress, they’re tempted to give up. Maybe that clear flash was just a tease, not a true promise of their brighter future.
We can get discouraged about any self-improvement project if we don’t feel like we’re moving forward. The project could be eating in a more healthy way, or sticking to an exercise or meditation program, or returning to producing that regular artwork or music that so fed our soul when we were younger.
Or we can stop part-way with what’s best for us, thinking that’s good enough, losing 20 pounds instead of the 40 which would be so much healthier. This is a human nature issue, not a vision one. How badly do you want it? Enough to go running even if it’s raining, or only enough to do the work when it’s easy?
We can slide back into old habits if we don’t stay aware, and the problem can start to grow, those extra pounds creeping back on, to keep to my unwanted weight analogy. My energy healing teacher Deborah King often talks about “fierce intent” — no other result is possible than the one you want.
Vision improvement does not have to be a struggle. It does take attention and focus, and an awareness of how you’re using your eyes. Back when I was a math teacher, I also coached the cheerleaders. We celebrated goals reached, and encouraged persistence when the going got tough. Both of these attitudes apply to vision improvement. Go Team! You can do it!
