A vision is a picture or idea you have in your mind of yourself, your business, or anything this is going to happen. A clear vision helps you pursue dreams and achieve goals; an idea of the future, a strong wish. A vision that is clear will open your mind to the endless possibilities of the future.
While wearing glasses may help us see the visible, having vision enables us to see the invisible, that which does not yet exist. Vision creates a path in our mind to a future of our own design. Having vision not only keeps us on track, but also shows us where the track is.
A vision can be used in two different ways: inspiration and prediction. It is first used to inspire you in reaching something that you are wanting. It is also used in prediction for changes in the future and interests you have.
When a leader has a vision, they have the ability to see today as it is and calculate a future that grows and improves. A successful leader can see the future and still stay focused in the present. For a successful leader, a vision is not seen as a dream, but a reality that has not come into existence. A vision is easily perceived for leaders because their dedication and confidence as extremely strong. Leaders are able to spend hours upon hours to bring their visions into reality. Their vision acts as a force within them, driving them to action.
Important things to remember when creating a vision:
1. Know exactly who you are. (Ask yourself where you want to see yourself in so many years.)
2. Brainstorm, imagine and dream.
3. Focus on things that give your life purpose and meaning.
4. Do not put limits on your dreams.
