Your Vision Can Go Global
There is something eternal and timeless about a true vision. Your vision comes from a place where there is no scarcity, no time, no limits or restrictions of any kind. Every single constrain around your vision was introduced by your mind on this plane of reality. It is all in your head. If you can […]
Building your vision from nothing (3)
One thing that separates the dreamers from true visionaries is how the former tends to complain about their lack of resources. This lack ultimately will make them abandon the vision and settle for something lesser. The one that triumphs understand that there is never going to be a time when one would have everything needed […]
Building your vision from nothing (2)
A true visionary must learn how to build something out of nothing. Without this mind set to build from nothing, the vision runners will gradually water-down the vision until it fits comfortably within what they think their resources can handle. When you understand that you are building from nothing, it brings the perspectives you need […]
Building Your Vision From Nothing
A lot of God-given visions turn out poorly. The execution fails to reflect the beauty and splendour of the original ideas that got things started in the first place. We usually identify lack of knowhow and resources as reasons for failure, but it is deeper than that. Poor execution is the result of a lack […]
Can You Create Your Vision From Nothing?
In many ways, you could say executing a vision is like creating something from nothing. The structure, systems, processes and institutions that should champion and support the vision doesn’t exist yet. When your daily work centres upon building out a vision, you discover that there is no Standard Operating Procedure (SOP); written instructions that outline […]
Excuses, Execution and Vision
We allow excuses to get in the way of important (but not urgent) work required to move things forward. Over time, this comes back to haunt us because without consistent high quality execution, the vision is no good. Execution and excuses don’t mix. You cannot be defined by your vision and your ability to give […]
A vision requires more than one or two people
When you become serious about your heavenly assignment to watch over the world and steer the rest of us towards a better future, you would see clearly that it goes beyond what a single person can do. It does not matter how talented or gifted an individual can be, a true vision will require many […]
The two kinds of power every visionary must acquire
Every day, you hear about some visionary championing a worthy cause only to fizzle out over time. There is such a long list of visions that we can consider to be dead. We have to remember that conceiving a vision and even planning it out counts for little if there is nothing to power the […]
Understanding the power requirements for your vision
It is very important for a visionary to understand that the implementation of a vision will depend upon how much power one is able to generate. There is a need to understand and accept that knowing what to do and being able to do what needs to be done are two separate things entirely. Your smartphone is always programmed to function, but without a battery to power it up, it cannot execute its programming. Therefore, as you develop your original ideas about what the future could look like, do not forget to consider the kind of powers you would need to implement the vision.
The one thing that guarantees a vision will fail
We tend to focus more on the “people perish where there is no vision” and not enough on the fact that “vision perish where there are not enough people” to believe in it. We need to be reminded that a true vision is by definition the redemptive plan of God for a people group, it will always take more than a person to deliver the result. That is why a visionary must understand the need to build a core team with humility and self-sacrifice. The vision dies without people actively working together to make it work.
