From: My Experience
Vision, most of the people think that it is just a statement that colorize the profile of their organization, but is that right..? Not at all. A vision stands for the reason for the existence of an organization or a vision makes the organization unique and focused in their growth.
Ultimately the vision of the entrepreneur drives the organization or the vision of the organization is same as the vision of the entrepreneur. It is very evident that most of the businesses were failed only because lack of vision about their end objective. So before jumping into any business, the entrepreneur should develop a vision and should make sure that the vision is the common goal of the team.
The following are the key signs that shows you have a vision…
1- You never find time to sleep: – People with a great vision will never have time to sleep for long hours until he meets his goal or vision. Just go through our own life, we can see that we have enough time to sleep while travelling, after our heavy lunch etc because we really don’t have a vision. Once John Sculley, Apple’s ex-CEO said about Steve Jobs “He was a person of huge vision and I don’t see any change in Steve’s first principles — except he’s gotten better and better at it..” that means visionaries will never change their vision for anything…
2- You try to get expertise in your competent area: – People with a vision will always find time to tune their skills in one special area or they are highly focused in a special area where they can shine. No any entrepreneurs can start their business with a focus on many areas, so getting expertise in a special area will help you to reach your vision easily. Like Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates or any successful business people you can develop your unique identity.
3-You will never skip your values even in a tough situation:- When people with great vision face challenges, they will never let down their will power and will hold their values to their heart. No matter what happens, if you have a strong vision, you will keep your values because values let you to reach your vision. Like Thomas Edison.
4- You get excited in your small victories: – Small victories can help you to boost your confidence and will take you to your vision easily, people who got a vision would have milestones in their mind and when they achieve success in one milestone, they get excited that they are moving in the right path. Likewise, if you have a vision you will find happiness in even small success.
5- You dream a lot and your dreams will get updated:- If you dream the same thing for the past 5 years, then it is the symbol of you don’t have a vision. A visionary’s dream will get updated within a specified duration of time because they are moving with their time bounded goal and dream. If you dream the same thing for the past many years, you may have a vision but you are not realizing it.
6- You will enjoy what you do: – If you are passionate in your work, you will be enjoying it or you will be just doing it for a sake. People who have vision will be taking it as a passion rather than just a job and when you work, you may even forget to look at your watch. So without passion and vision you will not enjoy what you do and you will feel challenges rather than opportunities.
7- You know the meaning of your life: – It is the very simplest sign of a person with a vision in their life. He can easily express the aim of his life and living, ask this question to yourself, if you have a crystal clear answer and that is SMART then you are a person with a VISION and this is the right time to go for it…
