Do you have vision when it comes to your life?  How are you powering your vision?   

Vision is the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be.  Vision is the ability to envision or picture mentally.

American scholar, organizations consultant, and author Warren Bennis is considered a pioneer when it comes to the contemporary field of Leadership studies.  Bennis said, “Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.”

There is an art to making your vision a reality.  Here are three strategies and leadership actions you will need if you would like to power your vision. 

1.    Reset Your Soul.

It would be nice to have a reset button when things are not going as planned.  The great thing about being human is we do have a reset button.  It is called attitude.  Our attitude is our rest button.

Attitude is a behavior, position, or feeling.  How you choose to feel, behave, and position yourself will determine how you will power your vision.  So your attitude is your reset button, but just make sure to make a choice and push the reset button.

2.    Condition Your Mind.

There is a reason why athletes train to master athletic skills.  Also, there is a reason why medical doctors go through extensive training before they start practicing as a practitioner.  Along these same lines, there is a reason why organizations take new employees through orientations before they start any work within their company.

Consistent planning and preparation will condition your mind, which will also give you the best opportunity to power your vision.  American minister and author of best-selling book The Power of Positive Thinking Norman Vincent Peale said, “If you paint in your mind a picture of bright and happy expectations, you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal.”

3.    Find Your Flow.

One critical piece to powering your vision is creating momentum while being yourself.  There is no reason for you to try to be anyone else, but you.  Without a doubt, we develop and grow by learning from the example of others.  But just remember your vision is not like anyone else’s vision.  At some point, you will have to find your own flow to power your vision.  You will find it easier to power your vision as you develop positive momentum by being yourself.
