What’s Scary About Vision?

Recently attended a function at Epcot’s World Showcase. This was framed on a wall.

jeff noel, founder at Mid Life Celebration, LLC has a clear, concise and compelling vision, and presses on, even though it’s not a vision everyone will want to follow. The same for anyone with a compelling vision, and this is one of the main reasons we don’t dream big enough – we fear the ridicule.

And deep down, we also fear the success.

  1. It’s been almost a year since I felt the ridicule of a friend concerning my vision, something he didn’t fully understand. It still stings.

    I’m trying to help him understand my vision by being unwavering in the approach to mine. I don’t want to cram it down his throat.

    Maybe one day he will understand.

  2. Unwavering has a way (the long way) of getting the job done.
    Plus, you find out what others are made of – talk or action, dreaming or doing.

  3. The concept of fear alone (for whatever reason) can cause people to “aim low.” That’s the stinging truth for me.

  4. Bob, me too. When I started living like there were only 10 years left (now down to 8), things transformed.

    Our ‘truth’ hurts, AND, it can set us free. Bob, I know you know this. Go.
