Navigate with a vision
By Jean Ricot Dormeus
The captain of a ship assumes the critical responsibility of navigating safely to a planned destination. He chooses a trajectory for his journey, masters the use of requisite equipment and manages his team. The work of a ship captain starts with a vision that determines everything he does. Successful people, businesses and governments set a vision that drives their focus and guides their steps.
Christopher Columbus's vision landed him in America. Gandhi's vision of non-violence liberated India. Martin Luther King Jr's vision of equality for his land sped up the advent of universal freedom and social justice in America. The Bible says without a vision, the people perish. All great achievements start with a compelling, uplifting and transformative vision.
The source of vision supplies the river of motivation and creativity, creates a path in the valley of uncertainty and challenges, and reaches the ocean of success. It refreshes the riverain communities of family members, staff, customers and beneficiaries.
A clear vision compels you. You pursue the requisite knowledge, training and skills. You acquire the right tools and equipment. You outline a good strategy. And you establish a sustaining network. Thus, take time to shape your vision, lest you get distracted or confused.
Leadership prevails on a vision. Management thrives thanks to a vision. Inspiration imbues your inner circle and the whole organization by means of a vision. A vision conveys hope, strengthens faith, boosts courage. It also fuels confidence and togetherness. Ultimately, it generates transformative power.
Still not sure about your vision? Invest time in defining it. This first step means the start of a new season in your life. In everything, navigate with a vision.
