Have you considered yourself to be a Visionary? By definition a Visionary is a person who has clear ideas about what should happen or be done in the future, a person who has a powerful imagination, or a person who sees visions. Having and holding a vision for you or someone else is extremely powerful! I bet you didn't know that you do this in every role you take on, each and every day. We are all Visionaries!
Parents! We hold a vision for our children to be and achieve anything. Today they want to be an astronaut! Tomorrow a veterinarian! Letting our children know we support their desires through play when they're young, and ongoing support as they grow into adults, is their backbone in believing in themselves!
Business Leaders! Holding a Vision for your small business, or global empire creates an atmosphere of teamwork, belief, and ultimate success!
Coaches! Athletes train to have fun, and be successful! There are ups and downs in every athlete's career, and a coach who holds a vision for them, becomes a life-long beloved teacher and inspiration. How many coaches have gone down in history as great leaders!?! Even you as a little league soccer coach.
So if you've never thought of yourself as a visionary, think again! Who comes to mind when you think of a great Visionary? Ghandi, Thomas Edison, Rosa Parks, just to name a few. I'm guessing that they started out by being an Everyday Visionary, too :)
