Visionary leadership is an interesting thing. No one starts out saying, “I am a visionary”, right? Few feel comfortable proclaiming, “I am a visionary leader”. Yet each creator is the visionary of his or her work. Each entrepreneur starts as a visionary leader of one.

Each entrepreneur starts as a visionary leader of one.
Most people aren’t confident enough to stake their claim in the land of leaders. Of course we all need to put in the time and earn the credibility. Yet each creator is the visionary of his work.
Each entrepreneur is the visionary of her business, guiding its direction. Each inventor is the visionary of his product, bringing it to life from idea to conception to manifestation.
Vision evolves in the voyage of becoming.

Becoming a Visionary Leader
The most famous visionaries throughout history began just doing their work. They came to be known as visionary because of their work. They wrestled their work into the world over time and as a result, they influenced and inspired others to the point where they were seen as visionary.
The creator’s journey begins as a glimpse, and grows into a vision. Becoming a visionary begins with doing your work, diligently, over time.
You are ever the visionary of your work.
Creators keep magic and wonder alive. Go forge a fate world maker.
The Maker is Made in the Making
But makers… makers keep company with Creativity, the muse of Creation itself. To create is the mark of The Maker. To create is a direct connection with divinity. And… we are all creators. Human destiny is to become fully conscious creators. Co-creators.
When we fully realize the truth of how deeply we create our own reality, the reality that we create changes.
If you’re “art” is that you’re an entrepreneur building a business, then your role is to be the ideator and visionary guiding the company’s direction. You will eventually hire others to implement the ideas you conceive.
If you’re a painter, you cannot hire someone to paint for you, but over time you will be able to hire someone to do all the many menial tasks that you don’t enjoy that take you away from your core role as creator. As the artist, your ultimate job is to do your art as only you can do.
The artist is the visionary for his art… the writer is the visionary of her book.
If you’re a writer, you cannot outsource the writing of your book. However, you can certainly outsource the editing, sales and marketing. There are many tasks related to getting your work into the world and growing your business and brand that can be delegated.
What a blessing to be able to take ideas from mind to manifestation. Be it canvas or page; sound or stage… creators are privileged to give form to wonder… and wonder to form.
But first…? First, you must lead yourself.
To be a visionary leader is to first lead yourself.
