What is a vision and what are the reasons why is it important? Vision is defined as, “the act of power of imagination.” A clear vision is worth a thousand pictures. It can serve as a guide and can be used to provide sense of purpose.
How clear is your vision? Your success in life, in multiple aspects, highly depends on the clarity of your vision. The clearer your vision, the more successful you become. With a clear vision, you know where you’re going and you make progress because you’re guided by the map of your mind and the compass of your heart
Having a vision is greatly important. Why? Well, there are plenty of reasons and let me enumerate below.
Overcome roadblocks and hurdles
Inevitably life happens and it will throw curveballs your way. Vision provides you with something to look forward to and always work towards. It provides you with a reason to keep going, even when the times get tough.
Substantiate your goal
Having a vision places a purpose upon your goal-setting activities. Without an end goal or destination in mind, then you won’t have a clear or defined path. Vision provides this.
If you set a goal, how do you know when you’ve reached it if you don’t have a way to define success? An overall life vision helps to set expectations accordingly.
It adds focus
When you are faced with a decision or distraction, you can ask yourself if it will help or hurt you in attaining your vision. This can offer you the means to move forward with intention and alignment.
Delivers meaning and purpose
A vision is a way to answer your own “why” of life. It gives you the reason for your actions, choices, hopes, and desires. This fills your daily activities with meaning and purpose.
Now, we have enumerated the reasons why having a vision is important. Also, it is vital to your success and joy. The question now is, how do we achieve the vision?
To achieve your vision, it all starts within you. Your desire to achieve your vision has to be greater than your fears. Look into your heart to see yourself for who you truly are. Once you do that, your vision will become clearer as you will recognize what’s most important and valuable to you. Looking into your heart will also lead you to decide how you want to keep moving forward with what you have and where you are at this time in your life. You may seek help as you move forward and do not hesitate to ask.
