Vision is the ability to see people and situations clearly, not only for what they are but for what they can become. Vision offers a clear image of a possible future, one worth striving for. When we apply vision to people, we prioritize kindness and acceptance while encouraging growth.
Vision shapes our lives by providing guiding purpose. It structures our priorities and activities. It inspires us and gives us hope. It helps us to define who we are and who we want to be.
Vision is one of the defining qualities of leadership; a leader calls people together communicates a vision, and inspires them to pursue it.
When we practice vision, we place trust in our dreams and ideas while utilizing the insight and knowledge of our experience. When a group of people come together around a clear vision, things that seem impossible become real.
