Examples of negative results: "My mother won't talk to me." "I have never held a job for more than five months." "I have a virus."
Non-results: "I let go of wanting approval." "I feel great." "I talked to so-and-so." Some people try to substitute excuses for results. "But I left a message . . . " Mailing your completed Screen Actors Guild awards ballot isn't the result -- having it arrive by the deadline and be counted is.
Objective: "I now have the equipment to do my project" is an attained objective. Objectives lead to results. They are not results. A result is something you have or have arrived at. Your results are the concrete expressions of your essential nature - manifestations of your realized vision - that alter the reality you exist in.
Results are temporally located (in the past, present or future). Visions and goals are ongoing.
Express results in past, present, or future tense.
Goal (or game):
A way of being from which results issue or that forms a context in which results will come.
Unlike a result, a goal is something that is not, at first, in the world, but happens first in you, and then is expressed, manifests, in the world. A goal is something that you can control, and the expression of it in the world is a natural outgrowth of what happens inside of you.
Examples of goals: "I have the ball in sight from my opponent's racquet to mine." "I show my feelings." "I eat to produce optimal health and well-being." "I use money and all other means necessary to stay brilliant and beautiful."
Non-goals: "I have an impact on my department." "I will feel clear and complete when I have paid for my children's education." These are visions/dreams.
A goal is something you can do or be that depends on you. There's also uncertainty as to whether you can do or be it (especially continuously, consistently). Results proceed from achieved goals. Goals are never final. Work done on goals is ongoing, every day. Some of my goals when swimming are to keep my head lower than my shoulders, to breathe deeply, to maintain a constant pace, to stretch my arms as fully as possible with each stroke, to lead with my lower body. .
Goals are the most action/activity-oriented of these three things. Express goals in the present tense.
2. the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be: prophetic vision; the vision of an entrepreneur.
3. an experience in which a personage, thing, or event appears vividly or credibly to the mind, although not actually present, often under the influence of a divine or other agency: a heavenly messenger appearing in a vision. Compare hallucination ( def 1 ) .
4. something seen or otherwise perceived during such an experience: The vision revealed its message.
5. a vivid, imaginative conception or anticipation:(visions of wealth and glory}.
If the definitions above, from dictionary.com, seem vague or contradictory with what I've said, check out the internal contradictions among the synonyms listed there:
It would appear that vision is a tough thing to define, tougher to talk about, and when I talk about visionaries I'm using the term in a very colloquial way, the way it's used in business and corporate jargon. Sorry about that. The concept of a visionary, and you as one, is something that you're going to have to construct for yourself, like I did.
Example of vision "People are drawn to me and walk away nourished." "I 'm teaching a dozen street immunics classes a day three days a week."
In contrast to -
Vision is the awareness that something can be done, coupled with a theory about how it can be done, and coexisting with an intention to do it that is strong enough to cause immediate, consistent, and continuing action.
Visions are finite.
A vision involves aspects of reality that ostensibly do not depend on you. Visionaries envision things being the way they intend them to be whether or not those things already are that way. You are said to have "realized your vision" when reality has become what you envision. If you experience that you do not have the reality you envision, you are dreaming. A dream becomes a vision when you experience it is real and behave accordingly.
Any form that is envisioned in the assumption that it is real is vision.
Express vision in the present tense.
