When starting your own business the need to "know-how" is greater than money!
Good topic Nuevolution,
IMHO, vision comes from imagination. The imagination is literally the workshop wherein are fashioned all plans created by man. The imagination faculty of the mind gives impluse and desire its shape, form and action. It has been said that man can create anything which he can imagine. I agree.
For an excellent and thorough discussion of imagination, read Chapter VI of Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
Have a great weekend.
Vision. Projecting the imagination beyond idle notions that the same creativity we see today will remain the status quo. For example, the visions of youth full grown, turn the wheels of kindness again to a new expression of children, taught to imagine and explore with all the animated technology of a new frontier.
I see vision as the ability to "see" or "picture" something as as you want and understand it best to be before you take action. Knowing your vision sets the requirements for everything that follows to make your vision a reality.
The more clear your vision is, the better your chances are to succeed. For instance it has been noted that the infamous inventor, and engineer, Nikola Tesla had such a clear vision of his notions that he often designed a single prototype which often worked the first time it was put to use.
What`s a "vision?" It`s a clarity of focus on a deliberate intent to create something.
I`ll try answering. Call me a risktaker. I know I`ll grow from the experience.
I hope I would answer, "If the sky was made of candy, I`d be hungry all the time." And smile. I hope that I would only stop a child`s creativity if they needed to be disciplined toward a certain task. On a semantic stage of language use, I know I can`t compete with certain masters of the art. So I must resort to one pointed idea of expression. I agree there must be "deliberate intent" that clarifies our plans to take action, otherwise imagination only serves to fuel the vision until the point where once again we are challenged to put it to use. To me, a simple dream may spark an idea, an idea may spark dialogue, expressive dialogue may spark action, but our actions are what determines the reality of vision. And clarity or the definitions of intent serve to allign what is doable with the maturity of right thinking. We are encouraged to seek more than one opinion before we commit, and we know there is wisdom from many minds. When there`s an aha moment, as I envision(or project probabilities into the unknown question of possibility), I will keep the worth and add to it in hopes the original concept will come to life as concrete plans. The question of how we train our imaginations is simple. When we wish to have hope, we surround ourselves with people of hope. So too, when we wish to have more trained imagination, we can meditate or we can surround ouselves with people of constructive imagination. And as long as discipline compliments a strong nurturing of a child`s ability to imagine beyond the here and now, I believe that we have the greatest resource for creativity and vision, which is found in the overabundance of youthful imagination. How we as adults choose to brainstorm with focused intent on creating a better future, defines our worth to the project at hand, be it educating our children into productivity or launching a business with a different approach to the norm. We risk the silence of what might have been when we question the right to dream-drv.
Hope I said something that stimulates rather than detracts.
