Can you remember the last time you saw something, heard something, saw someone, or something you could relate to that gave you the “ah-ha” moment? Whether it was a drawing, a photograph, or a book, we have all been given the opportunity to have that moment. It’s a quick moment and we only have to see a piece of the puzzle to understand it. Whether it was finding an artist with your interests, or it was simply learning to draw, we all have those moments. But there are many of us out there that aren’t as blessed with those magical moments, especially in the field of art and photography.
Vision isn’t just something that paints a wonderful picture for you, but that also draws your attention to things that you can’t miss. Vision can also be hard to pin point, but it can be done. Here are a few ideas on how to capture your vision.

Share your vision with someone you trust and respect. Remind them to be honest. As you begin sharing with others, you will become keenly aware of any objections or hesitations people may have. Don’t give up on your vision because of these problems. Keep bringing it forward, one step at a time.
Assess the strengths and weaknesses of the people around you. Find the naysayers. Look for the friends that are full of enthusiasm for your vision. You can actually be surprised by who can be most supportive. By being open to their suggestions and their guidance, you are giving them a chance to be creative.
Draw up a vision map of where you want to be. When creating this vision map, ask a person to draw in a complete circle around the three parts of their life they want to focus on. Think of the activities you want to focus on in the next five years. Write them out on a single piece of paper. If there is anything you want to modify, write it down and send it to another trusted friend or partner.
