I love quotes!
So many timeless lessons can be learned and passed on from generation to generation simply from short one-sentence quotes.
Over the next four days I’ll share will you four quotes that I currently have displayed on the desk in my administrative office.
Here we go!
“The poorest person in the world is a person without a vision” – John C. Maxwell
I really think it’s true, people who don’t have a vision are poor. They don’t have anything to look forward to. They don’t have anything to push towards. They don’t have anything to work towards. They don’t have anything to grow them self and stretch them self for.
It’s important to distinguish that “vision” isn’t always for leaders. Anyone can have a vision of the future. A mother can have a vision for how she wants her children to grow up. A boyfriend and girlfriend can have a vision for how they want their marriage to look like in years to come. And someone can have a vision for the people they want to serve and help.
Vision isn’t only reserved for leaders of organizations. It’s for anyone, and if someone doesn’t have a vision for something in life, that person is truly poor.
I’m not a biblical scholar, but I believe it’s in proverbs that says, “Without a vision the people perish.”
