Vision without action is a dream...
“Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is simply passing the time. Action with vision is making a positive difference.” – Joel Barker
Creating a vision is one of the best steps any goal setter can take. If you want a black belt, you set the goal and then earn it. If you want the house, you set the goal and then you get it. This is all good; however, a piece of the puzzle is missing. Vision doesn’t stop with the black belt or the house. It goes further by envisioning what kind of life you want to live. This means when you create a vision, you’ll need a better view of what you want out of life. When you have a vision of what you want, you automatically feel passionate about it, which helps you achieve it. If you ever asked your children to clean their rooms, chances are they didn’t want to do it. However, if you told them you wanted their help in redecorating their rooms, they jumped right in to help because they were dreaming of the colours and ways it could change. Its human nature and we all do it. That small step of visualizing the possibility makes a big difference in achieving goals.
