vision - a vivid, imaginative anticipation
In a sentence: "Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is simply passing the time. Action with vision is making a positive difference." - Joel Barker
Recently, I listened to a weeklong web conference called "May Cause Miracles," hosted by motivational speaker and writer, Gabrielle Bernstein. The truth within the conference was that we are all potential miracle-ists. The conference speakers included an interior designer, a baseball player, a music exec, and others... What had transformed these everyday human beings into handlers of angel stuff? It was that they had mastered the art of distilling their life experiences into words. Valuable kernels of truth that influence world thought and agitate for social change.
Though some of the speakers dealt in financial transformation, the value of their messages was not registered in decimal points, but in the power to shape one's vision of life. Writers are dream weavers, hope smiths, reality re-inventors. Visionaries. Words are the past, the present, and the potential. Words are proof. Words are proven. Words are miraculous. If you are a writer, you may cause miracles.
