What does being a “visionary” mean to you?
To me, “visionaries” are (obviously) those who “envision,” those who imagine, those who dream and, from those dreams, create possible scenarios in their imagination, their mind’s eye.
Every one of us has the power to imagine — and so we are all visionaries, in some way, but most of us use our powers to visualize unconsciously, and visualize only enough prosperity to barely make it. Most of us don’t even dare to imagine that the quality of our lives, including our financial success and our emotional experience, could be far, far better than it is at present.
We’re visualizing all the time. When you sit and think about what you want to have for lunch, you’re visualizing various possibilities. You picture in some way or think about this or that possibility in your imagination, and then you decide on something and take steps to create it in reality. This is a marvelous, visionary process — something we do constantly throughout the day, though we’re usually not aware of it.
We’re all visionaries already, at least to some degree, so we may as well use our visionary powers to create the kind of lives we want for ourselves, and even the kind of world we want for ourselves.
And if you think you’re not a visionary, just doing the “ideal scene” exercise and keeping the dream of your ideal scene in mind, makes you one.
