VOCAB

A person who sees a problem is a human being; a person who finds a solution is visionary; and the person who goes out and does something about it is an entrepreneur.
— Naveen Jain

VISION: ˈviZHən

NOUN: to imagine potential futures and forecast one’s own destiny

Dreams are cool. I don’t mean that sarcastically. Dreams are one of the coolest and most intrinsically human experiences. Dreams often feel more powerful real than facts, and they are certainly more motivating than cold hard facts. The truth is what is, the future has no truth or facts, it’s yet to be.

Your biography is a curated list of what has happened in the past. Your destiny is a future that extends from that past. It doesn’t necessarily have to make sense… there are surprises in life. Very often our life doesn’t follow logically. The saying “you can be anything you want to be” means that the world is full of surprises. You can’t be everything you want to be. While all future are possible, you will have to choose one future that is the most motivating. Again this isn’t about choosing the easy path, it’s choosing that path that you wish to wake up to each morning. Setting aside what future seems most possible, what future seems most motivating?

All the effort in the world won’t matter if you’re not inspired.
— Chuck Palahniuk
