Vision creates extraordinary achievers.
Vision is a verb ( something we do) and a noun ( a thing).
Brands that have a clear picture of success, a vision, are brands that are high performers
A clear picture of success includes:
Clarity around goals and pathways to realizing the goal
Ability to retain focus on the goals in the face of setback
Building your capacity to create and connect to your vision
Ability to link the vision to all stakeholders, employees, customers and influencers
If we exercise our vision by reconnecting to it every day we are wiring our brain to the outcome. Neural networks which fire together, wire together, clustering through concepts, ideas, memory and skill, becoming connected through learning.
Just by focusing our attention on our vision we are learning about it and wiring it in. Mental rehearsals are one way to build the vision in the brain, visual vision boards are another great way.
Your brand is your vision of your business, bringing value to your customer’s lives. A vision board is a great way to create a visual brand and business plan. Its purpose is to connect more deeply to your vision.
Place your vision board in a space that allows you to see it everyday, ever reminding you of your direction and picture of success.
