Visionaries have a vision, plain and simple.
But those with a vision aren’t always visionaries. You have to have a certain drive within you in order to fulfill the requirements.
It is not something that just happens overnight either. It takes time and effort (Or not). Simply put, you have to truly understand you, and where you want to go in order to become one.
Having an idea of what you want to accomplish helps. Having that same idea, and translating it into how you can help the world, now that is where the difference is.
Unfortunately, people who think this way, are overlooked today.
There aren’t many visionaries, yet there are not many people who are willing to take in the challenge of being different. That is the problem, being different is “not cool” anymore.
Being different, is something that you must find within you, everyone is different, but you have to embrace that trait in order to become that visionary.
We as a society and as a world, need more of that. If you have a vision of something, no matter what it is, you have to let that known.
No one will see the vision like you do, but if you spread that vision, you will more than be satisfied with the outcome.
Spreading the wealth, that is how it is done. If you have that vision, you must not be afraid to follow through with it. Lets get into things, we are going to jump into 4 Proven Benefits that Having a Clear Vision has.
Here are those Benefits (We will jump into detail more below):
- You have a Clear Cut Goal to Where you Want to Be
- Self Development Comes Easier
- Setting yourself Ahead of the Pack
- Believing in the Process of Success
These each have extremely solid benefits to your life. Some may seem a bit vague, but let me start by jumping into things now.
You Have a Clear cut Goal of Where you Want to Be
See, this is one of those things that might seem a bit self-explanatory. Having a vision brings many things, like I’ve already stated.
When you have a vision, you know where you want to be. That place might be closer or further than you might think, however it gives you that clarity of knowing.
One of the most important things in life, is finding your own success. This gives you a sense of pride in everything that you are doing, along with helping you realize your true potential.
What do I mean by having a clear cut goal?
Simply put, you know where you want to go in life. That could be something as simple as becoming a Teacher, or Doctor, or Mechanic, etc. Or as complex as a CEO of a Fortune 500 Company.
For me, I want to add value to your life, which is what I’m doing now by writing for you.
Your Vision gives you a goal. Both of these can be put together in most cases, since your vision is your goal right?
So from starting off with the 1st benefit of having a Vision, you are already ahead of the pack with a goal. Keep this in mind: Many people never truly know where they want to be in life, so if you have a vision you are closer to that top %.
Self Development Comes Easier to You if you Have a Vision
You guessed it, we are back on the self development train.
Since this is the goal (or vision) that I have for The Evolutionary Mind, it seems natural that we find ourselves back on this topic right?
When I say that Self Development comes easier to you if you have a vision, I mean you are already more open to achieving your goal and vision, so you will be more on board to improve yourself and your lifestyle.
Self Development is an ongoing process in which each and every one of us should be practicing throughout our lives. You have goals right?
Wouldn’t you think that having a vision gives you the biggest reason to focus on yourself then?
Think about it this way, you are working to better yourself when you are reading this, which isn’t just happening right? You have a reason, your vision to be better and that is where self development and self motivation come into play.
Setting Yourself Ahead of the Pack
This is one of those benefits that you would think isn’t necessarily one of the most important things. However, simply by having a vision, your benefit is being ahead of everyone else in the world.
You have a plan of action, you know where you want to be and where you see yourself. This is one of the most important things to do when you are working toward one of the most crucial goals of life.
See the thing is, not many people like I said have a true vision. So you being not the norm, you are already ahead of the pack.
Being ahead of the pack gives you benefits on its own, which you can see in this post by The Ascent Here.
This gives you tons of benefits in life, love, work and even in self motivation as well. Not only do you set yourself aside from the other 7 billion people in the world, you are presenting your solution to how you will make it to your goal.
If there is one thing that I want you to be able to take away from this section, it would be to never settle for less. In THIS post I go into a bit more detail onto why, but you can see already that being ahead is how you make it toward your vision.
Believing in the Process of Success
This is one of those hidden benefits that we might not think of fully at any moment during our journey toward our vision.
Essentially, you are knowing that it is a process to get toward your vision. With a clear vision for your life you know what it takes to get there even though sometimes it ends up being a bit more difficult that we would have liked.
Success is all about a process. There are many things that we must do in order to fully get to that point. But that is the point of having a vision right?
We are under the impression that is it a process, but we will get there. In time comes many things including success, visions and goals.
Fortunately there are ways in which you can more clearly define goals. Understand that again you are ahead of the pack. You are in the process.
This is an underlying benefit of having a clear vision in life. Oftentimes you already are well aware of the gravity of your vision and goals. You are on the path.
Now to wrap everything up for today, I want to leave you with this thought:
With a Clear Vision, life gives you achievements along the path toward success.
