Grand visions are those that require sustained effort, over long periods of time, commitment to preserve through adversity and setbacks.
Grand visions that positively affect many people are noble and the most worthwhile.
Research anyone who is generally thought of as a great success and you will find Why they did what they did was there greatest motivation and essential to their commitment to success.
Muhammad Ali needed to prove his worth as a boxer, a man and escape a life with little hope of happiness or meaning.
Kobe Bryant needs to leave a legacy that he is the best basketball player in the NBA.
Martin Luther King had a spiritually driven purpose to bring equality to black people in the USA.
JK Rowling had lost almost everything and believed the key to rebuilding her life was to first finish the only work [big idea] that mattered to her, the first Harry Potter book.
On the path to the great success, these individuals illustrate that the Why behind a grand vision, is essential.
Why is the motivation, which gets you through the tough times. Why is the reason people don’t quit when faced with great adversity and even fear of physical pain or death.
Martin Luther King Jr.’s Why was a cause that was noble, ethical and just to the greatest degree. He also paid the greatest price, his life being taken by murder. He could have stopped his quest. He knew his life was in peril. The Why behind his vision was so strong that he forsake his own safety for it.

Muhammad Ali and Kobe Bryant’s paths required years of disciplined strenuous practice, was full of pain and injury, had several devastating setbacks and lots of reasons to quit. They both amassed great wealth and stature, yet the wealth was not the major motivation.
If the wealth were the great motivation, Ali could have gotten out of boxing much earlier and Kobe could have retired a while ago too. It is, and was, about their Why.
Many people begin online businesses desiring to create an income that gives them independence from the need to work for someone, no more boss over them, most give up. Their probability of success will be greatly improved if they can identify and internalize their Why.
Most people desire great economic wealth, yet few acquire it.
Many people want to be remembered for some greatness/fame, yet few are remembered as such.
Those who have become rich mostly have their Why based on the attainment of a position of power and influence.
Others have succeeded because their Why supported a vision of creating something truly innovative.
Many who acquire greatness/fame have a Why based on some grand service to others.
The Why of these individuals supported their continuing through adversity, trials, failures, skepticism of others and sometimes overt ridicule.
The world is full of people who had grand visions, and gave up in their effort to achieve them. They never connected their vision and their Why. They were not aware of the importance on being clear in understanding Why this vision was important.
The lack of the understanding of Why, and internalizing it, prevented them from reaping the rewards of perseverance and unwavering belief it supports.
ONLINE BUSINESS & BLOGS
“Some men have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to, when all they need is one reason why they can.” -Martha Graham
The online world of business and blogging is the new frontier.
Those with established businesses brick and mortar businesses have realized the necessity of having a presence on the internet. They understand the opportunity of having access to the worldwide marketplace via the internet marketing of their business.
What is also true is the individual can also harness the internet’s ability to have their perspective, expertise, ideas, visions be available to the worldwide audience.
Every individual has the opportunity, through internet marketing, to create a substantial income from the worldwide marketplace for minimal expense.
The individuals who have become rich this way all expressed the path was not easy, but their Why was a powerful motivator and support.
Their Why enabled them to persevere through the hardship, failures, ridicule and other difficulties that obstructed their path to success.
Their Why gave them the incentive to stay in the struggle until they did achieve success for that economic wealth or great influence or great service.
Their Why gave them clarity of purpose. Their vision was so real to them that they believed completely in their achieving their goal.
Their Why kept them disciplined in making continued efforts toward success of achieving their vision. They did the work daily, day after day, week after week, etc. realizing this was necessary, regardless of the difficulty.
Their Why changed them into the person they needed to be for others to accept them as authentic, a leader and an authority in that niche. As time passed, they didn’t just talk the talk – They walked the walk.
It’s easy to quit. But if you keep your Why at the forefront of your mind, realizing that time and financial freedom can be yours if you just stick with it, you will find the strength to go on. - Ryka Milovanovski
Understanding and internalizing your Why is essential to accomplishment of grand visions.
Without your Why clearly established, you will have difficulty staying focused on your vision and making a committed effort toward it’s completion.
If you have given your Why an in depth investigation, and you have the essential ingredient for succeed.
The vision of becoming rich is not a strong Why in and of itself. There needs to be a grand purpose behind the desire to become rich. The vast majority of the world wants to become rich, yet a minority find a Why which inspires and sustains them to succeed through difficulty.
In your online business, or brick and mortar business, you need to investigate your Why. Then internalize it and let it motivate you to persevere in the realization of your grand vision, regardless of adversity.
You can and will succeed. Motivation and perseverance fueled by a clear Why is the best way to succeed.
