I am a visionary. I see things well ahead of the pack!”
“The vision thing” was a phrase that became popular in political circles in 1987. During an interview with Time Magazine, then Vice-president George H.W. Bush answered questions about his inability to clearly articulate his policy positions with a frustrated, “Oh, that vision thing.”
Having a vision is important. It’s important in clarifying our goals and in attracting the help other people in achieving them. People gravitate to people of vision, largely because many of us go through life without one.
Do you have one?
President John F. Kennedy was someone who, in his best moments, could lay out a vision like few other leaders in our history. In 1962, he gave a speech at Rice University (excerpt below) in which he committed The United States to landing a man on the moon before 1960s were over. When he laid out this vision, much of the needed science was more science fiction than science. Yet, Kennedy’s vision and powerful articulation of it galvanized a nation and the kept the vision on track even after his untimely assassination.
What is your vision? It doesn’t have to be as grandiose as going to the moon. It can be as modest or as grand as you wish. Just have one and be ready and able to articulate it when the winds of opportunity come knocking.
Follow your bliss! Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

I love this speech. We need vision and purpose in order to move forward at our fastest speed!
I completely agree. I think the reason people look back to November 22, 1963 is people have a sense that we lost more than a president that day. In some ways, we began to lose that vision. The good news is we can get it back.
Yes, I definitely agree. Here’s to getting it back!

Hi, Paulette. Thank you for the reblog!
You are so welcome Ray. I was reading a book on Philosophy and it opened my mind to a whole new set of topics to cover on Totally Inspired Mind.
