“He’s the man!”
“Who’s the Man?”
“The man in the suit, the man on the stage.”
“Yeah, you know, top dog, head honcho, big cheese, senior guy. He’s the one going to tell us all what to do; what the plan is, define the goal, sell us the vision”
“What if I don’t like the vision?”
“Well boy, you’d better get the vision or you aren’t going anywhere with this show. If you’re not on board you’re history. Better get on board, do what you’re told, hit the targets, run with the big guy, fulfil his vision, or you’re toast.”
“Don’t you wish you were the big guy, the seller of visions and goals?”
“No…I don’t think so…I don’t think I could ever be the main man…it’s not me…better that I follow and don’t ask questions. No one would call me a visionary. Leave it to the big guy in the suit on the platform. I couldn’t be like that; I’m different. I’m just not that sort of person, I’m different.”
Sell the vision, engage the crowd, inspire the workers, move them to action. That’s Visionary, right?
“Visionary” – “existing in the mind, created by imagination”, “A person of creative power, inspiring others to change or act”, “a person who dreams and sees what isn’t”
Do you dream of things being different? Creating a different world? Putting pen to paper? Brush to canvas? Fingers to keyboard? Hands to piano? Just letting go, letting your heart pour out, expressing what no one has seen or heard before?
Seeing a different angle, cutting a different direction, understanding in a different way; birthing pictures, possibilities, dynamics, sounds.
Seeing what isn’t and living as if it was.
Capturing the essence of you and letting it out into the “you sized hole” that need filling in the world.
Imagining, just imagining what only you can see.
Being, just being you. Unique, different, uncompromised you.
Taking what is, and knowing there is more.
You… you inside…imagining, creating, dreaming, you.
You with your “head in the clouds”; because you know that only by rising above the clouds can you really fly.
You…singular you…different you…fearfully and wonderfully made you.
You…singer of songs, painter of pictures, writer of words, builder of homes, dreamer of dreams, creator of ideas, different seeing you, different thinking you, believing you.
The difference, the dream, seeing what isn’t and bringing it into what is, the different angle, the crazy perspective, the blindside move, the unexpected perspective.
Difference is where the vision of things being different lives.
You are different. You are visionary!
