Create Exciting Vision

Create Exciting Vision :Major(R)Khalid Nasr
Create a vision you can be excited about."A pile of rocks ceases to be a rock when somebody contemplates it with the idea of a cathedral in mind." Antoine de Saint - Exupery>The expansion of an idea into a vision that inspires action adds up to achievement. Everything created began with an idea that was developed into a vision that inspired action. In 1962 John F. Kennedy had a vision voiced like this, "We choose to go to the moon in this decade…". About a year later Martin Luther King (MLK) expressed his vision which included, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." It seems every Olympic Gold Medal winner's journey at some point clarified the vision that they could win an Olympic gold, and the greatest works of architecture came from contemplation. Learn the benefits of an unlimiting vision that you can be excited about and how to begin creating that vision by reading on. 5 ways a vision helps produce what you want: 1. Unlimited Results:Bill Gates had a belief that the computer would be a valuable tool on every office desktop and in every home. This became the early vision for Microsoft. I wonder how much slower Microsoft would have developed if his original vision was limited. A vision expands the possibilities. 2 .Focus & Guidance: A clear picture of the end result helps you maintain focus on what is most important. Thoughts direct actions so it makes sense that holding a vision of what will make the greatest positive impact will help guide your actions in the direction that will make the greatest positive difference. 3. Manifestation:The creation of something valuable begins with an idea nurtured towards realization. Visions are not always manifested in our time frame. Imagine how many would have suffered if his vision was small. A vision sets the intention for the manifestation of what you want. 4 .Motivation:An inspiring vision based on who you are motivates daily into action. The vision can be based on:- a talent such as a singer who has a vision to win American Idol,- a cause such as Peace Pilgrim who walked for 28 years and over 25,000 miles to bring about peace,- a passion such as a gardener who wants to develop a landscape business. 5. High quality decisions:Being clear about what is most important long term can help you make better decisions when new choices and opportunities present themselves.Create a Vision Board- Cut pictures out of magazines that speak to you personally, add words, quotes, numbers, etc. to your vision board and put it where you will see it daily. Notice how what you want begins to show up.Close your eyes and experience your vision with all of your senses as if it has been achieved. This is important. Make it as vivid as possible.
