Seven building blocks of an inspiring vision

MLKJRAs I work on Chapter 6, I have uncovered seven key building blocks required to “Create an Inspiring Vision”.

Used in different orders, to varying degrees, these seven building blocks seem to cover all the inspiring visionary speeches I have found:

  1. Tell the truth about the current situation
  2. Define “What’s in it for me” (the audience)
  3. Let people make up their own minds, but make sure they choose
  4. Define clearly the future state you want instead of the current situation
  5. Relate your objective to a higher principle, moral purpose, or value
  6. Define some of the practical steps required
  7. Be authentic. Speak with your own voice.

Do you know of any others?
