There are so many articles written that help entrepreneurs. You can easily use Google to find thousands of pieces of content that give you tips and tricks about business. Literally, all business sides are covered and it is impossible not to find advice about practically anything you want. Matias Campiani though, a highly experienced entrepreneur, highlights the fact that there is one thing that you do not actually find much content about how important vision is for the modern entrepreneur.
Let us take a closer look at the life of Bill Gates as he is a great example of the importance of vision. He did not actually complete college due to the fact that ever since he was a child he knew exactly what he wanted to do in life. When he was a teenager he worked really hard towards achieving that exact goal. When he was ready to launch Microsoft he reached a superior IT field understanding that helped him to create the empire that is the company today. Everything revolves around vision.
After you have the mind blueprint of what you will achieve in life and how long it is going to take to reach the final goal you will start to build success. There are many tips like “always be realistic” and “use common sense”. These are really important but are not properly explained. When the tips are presented only like this they are just clichés and logical aphorisms. It is quite obvious for any aspiring entrepreneur that it is a really bad idea to launch a business when the market is saturated.
As a really simple example, in the event there are twenty publishers that operate in a city, working hard to publish books, it is really difficult for you to launch a new publishing business and be more successful. However, if in the same area there is a shortage of people that supply catering, it is possible that you found a very good business opportunity. All this is quite logical for anyone that wants to be a businessman.
Vision comes in and helps entrepreneurs stand out. If you want to start really small, with your friends and family as clients, eventually, in a few years, you will end up with so many other clients. This all happens through word of mouth. Vision is what helps take the business to the next step. You no longer worry about finances or breaking even. You start to think about what you will do and how you will reach your goals. At the same time, vision helps you to keep learning about what you can do to reach your goals.
The bottom line is that if you want to be a highly successful entrepreneur, you need to have a vision. If you do not have it you are going to be faced with various problems. You will not know if what you do is for the benefit of the business or not. You can easily end up faced with huge problems if you lack vision.
