The Happy Musician
Without vision, you're blind to your potential. Vision does not have to be some huge grandiose thing. But if you want to meat a goal. you need to have a vision.
What is vision? Vision is a clear, specific, slightly out of reach, yet realistic view of a goal. It's so real that you can almost taste and feel it. It's not a dreamy blur of what could be. It's a finished picture of what you are working to achieve. It's a bright, crisp picture you see every day. A vision is a picture of exactly what you want, why you want it, and when you want it to happen.
Why you need vision:
Vision breaks through limitations: when you see something so clearly that it is a reality for you, limitations will be gentle little speed bumps on the way to your goal.
Vision gives you an Identity: Who are you? What do you stand for? Why are you doing this? The answers to these questions are (and should be) in your vision. Before I understood this.
Vision is the GPS to your Goal: Every time you make a decision, check your vision. Ask yourself, is what you're doing in line with your end goal? Is this taking you off your desired path?
Vision Lets you see into the future: Vision is a view of your desired future. The challenge is to be able to project yourself into a future that you have little or no reference point. You can imagine it but, it's difficult to envision it. For example, I imagined myself helping other musicians be happy, but until I envisioned it my progress was almost nonexistent.
How to create your vision
Think about what really matters to you. Not what should matter, what does matter.
Write down your secret passions and dreams.
Ask yourself what qualities would you like to develop.
List your values. What issues do you care about?
List What’s special about you.
Think about the legacy you want to leave behind.
So, how can I help make your vision a reality?
"You need desire to be fully alive and you need vision to fulfill your desires."
