Vision: An imagined idea or a goal to which one aspires.
You may have heard the news a few weeks ago about Mike Hughes, the man who designed and built a rocket, even though he’s not an engineer, and launched himself in it. You can read the story here if you missed it.
Amazingly, he survived a hard landing in the Mojave Desert. Even though it doesn’t really have anything to do with the story, it’s interesting to note that he also thinks the earth is shaped like a frisbee, as in not round.
Sound crazy? You might think so. Lots of people do.
Say what you will, but the man has vision. And commitment to it.
Do you have vision?
When we say of a person: “She has vision,” it sounds big. Big idea, big goals, global.
Tesla’s vision is space travel for the common man. Big. Huge. Interstellar huge.
It doesn’t have to be. Yours could be something as simple as being debt free, running a marathon, or getting off medication, to name a few.
But, you could want to launch yourself on a rocket you made in your garage. Either way.
If you have a goal or imagine doing something you only see yourself doing in your wildest dreams, then you have vision.
Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others. ~ Jonathan Swift
No one else has to see it. As long as you see it, it’s possible.
So how’s your vision? What do you want to do or create? It starts with a vision and then you have to get to work.
Almost certainly, there’ll be people who don’t see it, who say it’ll never happen and believe you’ll never do it. There’ll be people who celebrate your failures. You can be sure of that.
But there will also be people who cheer you on and believe in your vision even though they can’t see it. They’ll have faith in you and trust that you see it and trust that you’ll make it a reality.
You can create a Dream Board to help clarify your vision. (Read My dreamboard and the law of attraction) You have to have a goal if you’re ever going to reach it.
What is your goal? Your imagined idea?
Dare to dream. Have a vision. Why not make it big?
