“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.” –Woodrow Wilson
Let’s talk change leadership, personally and professionally. Stretching to new levels of excellence and making major changes needs to begin with a compelling organic vision. This vision is a map from where you begin to plan your strategies. Before planning can begin, however, it is necessary to have your organic vision.
An organic vision is one that is an expression of self authenticity and integrity. It is one which you believe in and will take responsibility to fulfill. An organic vision calls forth the self you are meant to develop. It is your journey and something you are passionate about being involved in creating. Without having this, life may seem ordinary and without purpose.
Let’s say you value freedom and you want to live in a world where there is “freedom for all.” The bigger picture you have for the world is “freedom for all.” To do your part in having “freedom for all” you generate a smaller visualization which contributes to the mega world vision.
Your vision is the micro part that contributes to the whole. It is not made up of should’s, but speaks from what truly resonates from your higher self. This vision is articulate, inspiring and motivates you. For example, freedom is high on my lists of values.
My bigger vision for “freedom for all” is people in the world are living life on purpose doing what they love. They show up as leaders in their life professionally and personally. My part in contributing to freedom around the world is to the best coach I can be, helping people fulfill their destiny doing what they love, thereby creating a world full of love, peace and joy.
Take a moment today to think about your bigger vision and then determine what your part can be in contributing to that vision. I'd love to hear your answers!
