your visions for success
clear about the result you want in life and skilfully communicate
to others to manifest it.
Establishing your vision is a key element in your success.
You need to know where you are going in life. You also need
to speak your vision so that others can help you accomplish
I have published two companion books to support the efforts
of people keen on designing compelling futures. One book is
entitled Live a life of Virtual Success. Subtitle:
Choose YOUR Personal Success Strategies. The other book is
The Executive Speaks. Subtitle: An Executive Insiders
5 Power Speaking Secrets.
Success in life rests on two pillars. My two companion books
represent those pillars. First, have a clear vision for your
life, and develop goals and strategies to fulfil that vision.
Follow this with massive appropriate action to deliver your
lifes design. The book Live a Life of Virtual
Success shows you how to build this pillar.
After you have established the blueprint for the life you
want, you must communicate it for others to help you manifest
it. You have to speak up. You have to communicate your vision
and encourage others to support you in your efforts to release
The companion book, The Executive Speaks, shows how you can
nurture and develop your speaking ability. You will be on
the high road to success when you apply the wisdom contained
in these two books.
Your vision is a target that withstands time and circumstance.
It is the ultimate life value that you hold dear to your heart.
The strategies and goals you first adopt to deliver your vision
may change from time to time. The vision itself remains inviolate
for some protracted period.
You should, therefore, not embark lightly on what you consider
to be your vision. Vision is seeing or visualising in the
future what does not actually exist now. It is the beachhead
of your core values. You have to use your imagination to contemplate
what your future might be.
An example of vision in the field of business relates to the
vision of the National Commercial Bank of T&T Ltd. When
the bank was established in July 1970, the executive management
developed a vision for the bank ...to be the best bank
in Trinidad and Tobago. Best in customer service, banking
products, technology, employees, remuneration, shareholders
return and corporate citizenship.
Different goals and policies were applied with respect to
all the sub areas but the vision to be the best bank
was the focus that was pursued.
It is the same principle that can be used for your life. Decide
where you want to go, to be and to achieve. Distil your focus
until you arrive at what you think will support your inclination,
purpose, and destiny.
Your journey to realising your vision will have setbacks.
This is human and natural. Keep moving on and learning from
the experiences on the way. Do not give up. Be persistent
and unstoppable. Anything worth having is worth fighting for.
What is the one thing you can do to explode your potential
and create a great life for yourself? Clarify and apply your
vision is the answer. Clarify, confirm and specify where you
want to go in life. The key to unlock the treasure of your
life is the rigorous application of what you know you ought

Life is all around you and there is a natural tendency to
express how life occurs for you. Speaking is the predominant
way in which you expose who you are. You have views, values,
opinions and concerns, and through speech you make them known
One purpose of speaking is to inform others of how you think.
Another aspect of speaking is to persuade others to your point
of view. It is to your advantage to learn how to speak effectively
to enjoy a sense of fulfilment.
Any speaking has two key elements: the person communicating
and the person receiving the message. The communicator at
times becomes the listener and the listener at times becomes
the communicator. Thus, to be an effective person in pursuing
your vision and goals you must master the art of listening.
In order to accomplish what you want in life, you need to
be clear about the result and you have to be able to communicate
with others to make it happen. Polish your speaking skills
to enhance your ability to inform, persuade and lead others.
Take your speaking skills to new heights of excellent expression.
Writing is critical, but there are many more opportunities
to influence others through speaking. You need to cope with
daily communication challenges through polishing your speaking
skills. You are constantly interacting with people so to succeed
you have to:
Communicate your ideas more clearly and powerfully.

your vision and goals for ultimate success.
