Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do you feel like you are working toward something that is truly meaningful? Or, is there a persistent little feeling inside that makes you believe there is just something “more”? Most people probably feel that at one time or another. If it’s a nagging feeling that keeps rearing its ugly little head, don’t underestimate the power of visioning.
What is a Vision? Dreaming without limitations
A vision is a mental image, a daydream, or the imagination you possess that gives you the power to dream without limitations. It is a catalyst that propels your passion into actionable items.Visions are attached to owners and yours belongs to you.A vision is powerful. A vision is future driven and never about the past. A successful visioning session should leave you feeling purposeful in all aspects of your life.
A vision without clarity will only clutter your goals. Having a clear vision helps you set the right plan into motion for greater success.
The Importance of a Vision
Ask yourself this one question. What if your life and career stayed the exact same over the next five years? How does that make you feel? Is it scary? If it is, that doesn’t have to be your personal reality.
A vision is the most powerful way to keep you focused and motivated. Visions help you remove roadblocks. When you create a vision that makes you feel happier, healthier, more successful, and purpose-driven, you are more likely to set into motion a plan so that your vision becomes reality.
Participating in the Present Leads to Greater Control of the Future
Future achievements are prepared for in the present moment. If you will ever live the way you want in the future; you have to live in the present first. In reality, we only exist in the present – not the past and not the future. We exist now. So we have to make things happen now. There’s no control over the past but there is control over the present and that leads to control of the future.
Vision versus wishes
Living your life without a vision is like walking in the darkness; you’re probably going to stub your toe and it may even hurt a bit. You stumble into obstacles because you do not know where you are going. A vision adds a positive direction to your life and creates your personal legacy. It adds a sense of accomplish to your daily routine as your vision become a reality. However, a vision without goals is only a wish.
