TRIPLE III TIME: VISIONARIES – Do You Know One?
When you hear the phrase: “He or she is a visionary,”…what comes to mind? That they can see the future? That they can predict the outcomes of certain events or actions? Or do you follow the Oxford Dictionary definition of a visionary which states:
“Visionaries are idealistic, imaginative and have inspired ideas about the future.”
Well as I selected: VISIONARIES-Do You Know One? as the topic for this week’s TRIPLE III TIME message, my focus was mostly on the Do You Know One part. And my guess is that as you think about do I know someone with vision, your mind goes to people like President Kennedy or Albert Einstein who as visionaries impacted our world. But today I want you to think about visionaries in a simple, small town manner. Think about:
- Farmers…don’t they have a vision every year about an excellent crop as they plant?
- Truck Drivers…don’t they dream about an on time (or ahead) of time safe delivery?
- Plumbers…don’t they have visions of quickly, efficiently fixing the leak in your house?
- Teachers…don’t they hope that all their students pass their classes with good grades?
- Doctors…don’t they all anticipate they can prescribe a cure for your illness…and it works?
- Employment Counselors…don’t they envision that everyone they help gets a GREAT job?
- Auto Mechanics…don’t they have a vision that they can fix your brakes…quickly?
- Construction Workers…don’t they dream of building a cool, unique house sometime?
- Musicians…don’t they envision playing a perfect song for an appreciative crowd?
- Authors…don’t’ they all foresee that they will write the next best seller?
So let me ask again, VISIONARIES-Do You Know One? Hopefully your answer is YES and by using the list of 10 Visionary examples…I hope you know you probably are one too!
he goal of this TRIPLE III TIME message is to encourage you to be a natural VISIONARY everyday…EVERYDAY! Never apologize for having a sense of idealism and imagination. Because that is what VISIONARIES are made of.
