Every Entrepreneuer Lives off Their Vision

Hope for a Better Future

Hope for a Better Future

By: Andrew Sieg

            Chances are you already possess the most important ingredient of a person who is on their way to success. You have vision. A better future is in your reach and you know it. The feeling may not be there but that doesn’t matter. Deep down in your heart of hearts there is an absolute confidence in yourself that you can take yourself to exactly where you want to be. If you disagree, then the current paradigm you have is not congruent with your mission in life. Think about the direction your internal compass is taking you. Does it feel like the direction you should be headed? If not then you need think about your purpose in life. What gives you meaning? If nothing comes to mind then refrain the question like this; what makes you mad? My personal example is the anger I feel when perfectly capable people think they are unable to achieve certain goals they would like to accomplish. I think everyone on average has at least 60% more potential than they think themselves capable. In fact that is why I wrote this. I don’t know much about writing but I feel like when I type on this page I am traveling congruently with my internal compass. You also need to find purpose that not only you have passion for but you can also act on. What can you do that would make a difference if you took action right now? I personally consider myself a creator over an executor. I have ideas that add value and I map out how this idea will come to life and inspire other people to act on these ideas. This is no excuse however, to wait for someone else to take action on your behalf. The bottom line is if people don’t do things then they won’t get done. People will be more inspired to follow your vision if they see the results you have already. Speaking of vision, where are you going to ultimately be? How detailed can you see the future you have created for yourself? And just as importantly what are the steps you will take to get there? An excellent way to start creating vision for yourself is to think about a vacation you really want to go on. My vacation is a trip to the Caribbean. Imagine every detail that makes this vacation enjoyable. The clear blue water dancing under a sunny afternoon crashing on your ankles. The rum drinks the local bartender makes you that have a true tropical flavor. Sailing on an open ocean that screams freedom and adventure while the wind wisps through your hair. These are the thoughts that compel me to pursue my life’s mission because this is where I will end up. Your actual mission consequences might be different for you. Perhaps you look forward to the day no child will go to bed hungry. What you choose doesn’t really matter. What is important is that you have articulated a vision that compels you to take action that provides you with a better future. When this vision is articulated then it is time to take action. The first step is universal; write your goal on paper. This will give your thought a sense of tangibility and will be especially helpful if you know where you want to be but don’t know how you want to get there.
