Visionary. Once upon a time, many of us thought this word was limited to huge figures in history who discovered things like electricity, the wheel, etc. However, nowadays, we see this role in a much larger capacity. Vision can be had by many as long as they are willing to step forward, communicate and recruit good people to help make it reality. Vision can be simple or it can be common sense that just somehow lost its sense and has become no longer common. Vision has become more and more important in this day and age simply because times are getting darker and more murkier. We are losing our way, our view has become narrower and we cannot see the forest from the trees. Because of this, vision is needed now more than ever. We realize that the same old way we have been used to doing things, are no longer working or just plain outdated for today’s life and circumstances.
When you are a visionary people come forward to serve you, not to spite you.
As we already know, vision exists in every aspect of life. So, when one steps up with their vision it can be in any capacity. As a visionary, many will be attracted to you and your vision. The world still wants and appreciates leaders. If you are such a person, realize that your vision comes with responsibilities and certain acknowledgements. Firstly know this, when you bring a vision to light, those who should choose to follow you and take up your cause by offering their help do so for the simple fact that they want to serve you because they believe in what you believe in. What greater honor is there? Sometimes when we try to bring a vision to reality, it can be very stressful and we may at times find that we can become less than kind to those who are dedicated to help us. Sometimes we can be downright nasty. Nurturing our vision can at times unleash our egos and our distrust especially when those we have helping us reveal information that has us questioning if our vision’s direction is the best one. At such times, it is easy for us to feel that those helping us are trying to spite us. Please be clear on this, those who show up to help you are not there to spite you. One does not sign up to help, cheer you on, congratulate you and most of all they would never recommend you or promote you to others if they did not believe in you and respect what you are about.
Do not let your bright vision, one that may be capable of doing much good and enlightening many, be extinguished by distrust, ego and being self-absorbed. Realize that many are waiting for new and better every day, but may sometimes lack the direction, focus or strength to carry it through. And others may not even know they needed what you have to offer. Be gracious, and grateful, be inclusive, but most of all realize that sometimes your vision may need adjustment, a tweak here and there. I mean we don’t curse our eyes and throw them out when they need adjusting, no we simply get a pair of glasses.
Peace & Light
