When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds.  Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world.”  – The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

Voice is a unique personal significance:

  • Revealed when you face your greatest challenges
  • Talent
    • Natural Gifts & Strengths
  • Passion
    • Energize You
    • Motivate You
    • Excite You
    • Inspire You
  • Need
    • What the world needs – and it will pay you for
  • Conscience
    • The voice inside you to remind you what is right and to go for it

Inside each one of us is the urge to find that Voice to become the person who we know we can become!

How Do You Gain Your OWN Vision?

  • You don’t need to define it to begin with
  • Find a need
  • Fill that need
  • Allow your vision to evolve with time

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” – Edmund Burke

Dr. Stephen Covey travels the world studying people and gives seminars on the 7 Habits and the 8th Habit.  Through all of his writings and experience, I trust him when he comes to conclusions on how successful people do things.

How Some of the World’s Great Leaders Found Their Vision

  • Evolved slowly over time
  • Applied the Slight Edge
  • Vision came as they sensed a human need and responded to fulfill that need
  • After they met that need, they saw another and met that too
  • Thought of ways to institutionalize their efforts for sustainability
    • In other words, when they pass on that need will still be met

Few of us can do great things, but all of us can do small things with great love.”  – Mother Teresa

Excerpt from the 8th Habit:

“The best and often only way to break through the pain to a lasting solution is to first understand the fundamental problem causing the pain.”

  • The Problems come from your behavior
    • Comes from a flawed or incomplete paradigm
  • The Solution comes from a fundamental break in old thinking
    • Paradigm Shift
