Why It's Important to Have a Vision

"The dreamers are the saviours of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful visions of their solitary dreamers. Humanity cannot forget its dreamers; it cannot let their ideals fade and die; it lives in them; it knows them as the realities which it shall one day see and know." As a Man Thinketh, by James Allen
After I heard about the tsunami in Japan last year, I wrote a piece which included my vision for Japan. Here's part of my vision:
"I see Japan as a perfect idea that cannot be touched by any disasters. No matter how things appear right now, there is a perfect idea of Japan that exists right in that same space of devastation and loss. That perfect idea is inspiring the Japanese people to rise again, better than before." Regarding Japan - Why Ideas Can Never Be Destroyed
I noticed this news article about Japan with photos: What a comeback! Eleven months after the tsunami ravaged Japan, a series of pictures reveals the incredible progress being made to clear up the devastation

It's good to see my vision for Japan is not only coming true, it's almost identical to the news headline.

That's why I believe it's so important to hold the highest possible vision at all times as those thoughts are alive.
