How To Turn Your Vision Into Reality

 

I’ve talked to a few leaders recently who feel they have a unique problem.

In one-on-one conversations at speaking engagements, leadership trainings, and social events, these leaders have outlined this scenario…

Each one of these people feels successful…and by every measure they are successful.

Each one of these people wants to grow…and they’re taking steps to grow.

Each one of these people is a gifted leader…and they have the respect of the people they lead.

So what’s the problem?

The problem is this…

Each one of these people has an extraordinary vision for the future.

That’s right.

Each one of these people can picture a future for themselves, their families, their teams, their clients and their friends that is richer, more effective, more abundant, and more influential than it is today.

I know what you’re thinking…

That’s a problem?

Well, we’re only halfway through my explanation. You’ll see why these people are frustrated when I tell you the second half of what they’re dealing with.

So…these leaders, they have these powerful visions for the future.

But the problem is…

Turning those visions into reality isn’t going the way they planned.

These leaders with the great visions…they’re stuck.

On some level, something is holding them back.

What’s the reason?

Some of these people are obsessing over details.

Some are immobilized by fear.

Others are playing the paralysis by analysis game.

Have you walked in those shoes?

Have you seen a clear picture of how your future should look, only to lose momentum and watch your performance plateau?

I’m here to share a tried-and-true remedy with you.

The best solution to what you’re going through…the advice I’m sharing with the leaders I was telling you about…is to TAKE ACTION.

You’ve got to realize that the balance between THINKING ABOUT your vision for the future and TAKING ACTION toward your vision for the future will tilt so hard in the direction of TAKING ACTION you’ll think something is broken.

Here’s what Vaclav Havel says:

“Vision is not enough; it must be combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up at the steps; we must step up the stairs.”

Action is the path that leads you to your vision.

But taking action isn’t always easy.

Depending on what you’ve got to do, taking action might mean having guts, muscle, discipline, compassion, backbone, or making yourself vulnerable.

No matter what it takes, developing the habit of action will propel you to greater levels of success.

Here’s my mentor John Maxwell on action:

“Successful leaders have the courage to take action while others hesitate.”

A great way to take action is to give yourself and the people around you the tools to reach higher levels of personal success.

The Live 2 Lead Tri-Cities event is just around the corner and we still have seating to accommodate groups.
