Vision Guides

11.02.2017

 

Some may look at a kernel as a meaningless particle and some may see it as tall stocks of corn, each stock burdened with several ears of corn, the golden silk glistening in the sunlight. Vision is how you look at the seed. It is about the seed you have in your heart, the seed of purpose. The most important vision you can have is a vision of who you can become. If you can see the seed, you can see the plant and the fruit. And if you can see the plant and the fruit, you will cultivate the seed with tender care and vigilant consistency.

How to see and cultivate the seed, needs to be addressed first. According to the experts, it’s a three-stage process:

1. An awareness of your natural talents and gifts

2. Career that you know you can be one of the best in the world at doing,

3. Driving an economic engine that provides sufficiency.

So, your seed is what you’re interested in, what you’re passionate about, what comes naturally to you. Once you discover that seed, you must plant it in the fertile soil of getting into the act of nurturing. What waters and fertilizes your seed, is your work, training and the infrastructure as without that ongoing nourishment, it’s unsustainable to continue growing your seed. Every individual, organization and state should have their own vision.

Saudi Arabia has recently launched its Vision 2030. This vision is built around three themes: a vibrant society, a thriving economy and an ambitious nation.

According to Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who is also the Chairman of the Council of Economic and Development Affairs, “Our Vision is a strong, thriving, and stable Saudi Arabia that provides opportunity for all. Our Vision is a tolerant country with Islam as its constitution and moderation as its method. We will welcome qualified individuals from all over the world and will respect those who have come to join our journey and our success.

“We intend to provide better opportunities for partnerships with the private sector through the three pillars: our position as the heart of the Arab and Islamic worlds, our leading investment capabilities, and our strategic geographical position. We will improve the business environment, so that our economy grows and flourishes, driving healthier employment opportunities for citizens and long-term prosperity for all. This promise is built on cooperation and on mutual responsibility.” This encompasses where the Kingdom is heading in the coming years. 

Before we start afresh after a holiday break let’s work out our own vision.

Good luck.
