All human beings yearn for direction and guidance. That’s why someone with a vision is so alluring and influential to us. Charismatics are able to create a strong clear vision of the future. People will jump on board when they can see that there is a solid vivid vision in place that they can touch, taste, feel, or see. No one wants to get on a sinking ship. People want to know: What’s the plan? Where are we going? What are we aiming for? Your goal is to powerfully present how your vision is the solution to their problems. Your vision must bridge the gap between their present situation and their desired situation—where they are, and where they want to be.
Vision is powerful because it keeps us focused on the future objective instead of getting stuck in the current preoccupations of the day. It gives us focus and purpose for the future. It creates a big picture. A cohesive common vision brings people together and unites them toward the same goals and objectives. Charismatic people have a clearly defined vision and are filled with great enthusiasm and expectation. Remember more than anything else in life, vision—whether it’s yours or somebody else’s—dictates your daily decisions. When the vision is clear, the right decisions are easier to make.
A true vision diminishes the fear of failure, negative thinking and promotes synergy. They want to know what is in for them in the long-term. Why should they support you and your vision? How does this affect the whole team? Your vision builds a bridge from the present status quo to the future objective.
