The Dynamic Tension of Goals & Visions

Dynamic Tension Skiing.001

Most people drift through life without a meaningful vision of what they want to create. This lack of vision results in a lack of goals, which causes a lack of motivation. The common wisdom is that people avoid goals because they are afraid of failure, however this is only part of the reason. There are three primary reasons for avoiding goals:

  1. Failed goals from the past
  2. Lack of a compelling vision
  3. Inability to handle the tension created by the gap between the goal or vision and their present reality

This tension is known as “Dynamic Tension” because it is fluid and represents the ever-moving relationship between where you are today and the goal or vision that you are moving towards.

The bigger the vision and the more challenging the goal – the more tension you will feel. As you close the gap, the tension reduces.

Lifeforce exists in this Dynamic Tension. The basic goal of life is survival, however once you have handled your basic needs your attention turns to higher value needs like achievement, success, status, community, self-expression, creativity and contribution.

If you want more joy and fulfillment from life, set bigger goals and dream grander visions for yourself, your community and the world. This will give you a reason to live, engage all of yourself and will create tension that will propel you to new levels.
