Vision in Leadership

Empowering leaders have a driving passion to realize their vision.  Great leaders are not more talented than the majority of people.  However, they know what they want and work with all their might to make that happen.

Great leaders have a clear vision of what they want to accomplish and a passion for making that vision a reality.
  • They know clearly what they want, and they work passionately to make that happen.
  • They do not meander throughout the day in a state of half-consciousness.
  • They do not allow events and circumstances to determne what will happen to them.
  • They are concerned with outcomes.
  • They use their vision to rise above adversity, setbacks, and even failure.
Think about these events:
  • Columbus envisioned a new world before he discovered it.
  • Lincoln dreamed that his countrymen could be free from bondage before he brought that about.
  • An architect envisions a building before he builds it.  He draws a picture of it, exactly how it will look, down to every detail including the color of the flowers surrounding it.
What is YOUR vision?

Until next time...
