Where there is no vision, a people perish. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Great leaders have vision, for a better world, a more peaceful world, and kinder and gentler world. I would add to Emerson’s quote that if the vision is about power and personal gain, not the betterment of others, than yes, “a people perish.”
We all can accomplish our own brand of vision where we see things more clearly, even our imperfections. Yet, our vision is not the same as judgment.
When we reject judgment, we learn acceptance. We learn to accept others and ourselves as we are. What clearer vision of the world can we ever ask for?
