According to Collins dictionary, vision is seeing something that others cannot see. It has for a long time, been confined to religion but that’s a wrong perception.
Each and every one of us has a vision; a vision of how you want your life to be in future and the things you want to achieve. The only person who understands a vision is the one who sees or has it. You view it in intricate details or what I would call 3D. A vision appears to the visionary as if it has actually happened. If it is a job, one sees him/herself in the office. If it is a business, you see yourself running a successful business. If it is education, you see yourself graduating.
If you try to explain to other people (and this is a mistake many of us make), they often think you have a serious mental problem – more so if they compare you current state with what you say you want to achieve. There are others who will try to dissuade you from carrying out your vision either out of friendly concern or out of malice. Many people have failed to reach their destiny because they made a mistake of sharing their vision with the wrong person or people.
Vision in its infancy is very sensitive and should not be shared with everybody. In fact, it is advisable that you keep it to yourself, work on it untilit has matured, then the results will speak on your behalf. There are very many vision killers on the prowl and if one is not careful, you might fall victim to their evil machinations. Many people feel threatened when somebody comes up with what sounds like a bigger vision than theirs. They want you to remain at their level or lower. Anything higher than them is considered a threat which should be dealt with promptly. My simple piece of advise is, keep your vision close to your heart until you have achieved it.
