What makes you a visionary?
I am able to see the plan God has for me as it unfolds and as He gives me the capacity to carry it out. As a visionary, I write down each plan in order to execute quickly. As I am executing quickly, I bring others alongside me that are assigned to help fulfill the vision when needed and necessary. I am a visionary because I hear, see, plan, speak, and implement the ideas and strategies that come to my mind that are aligned with the vision. As a visionary, you have to be able to distinguish what is for you and what is for others around you. I too am a visionary because I able to also lead and guide others with their vision.

• Ever timed I failed, I never quit. I acknowledged my failures, learned from them, asked for help when it was needed and necessary, and invested in my now and next.
