If your vision is for a year, plant wheat.
If your vision is for ten years, plant trees.
If your vision is for a lifetime, plant people.
~ Chinese Proverb
I don’t know if I need to say anything else!
You can’t possibly change the world on your own. You have to grow disciples. You have to give away a lot of the things on the “to do” list for reaching your vision. You have to give up control and let go. And while you’re letting go you have to be about the work of spreading the message.
You have to spread the word tirelessly, persistently, without wavering or faltering. You have to weather all of the storms, all of the slings and arrows.
To succeed, you have to plant people.
If your goal is for a year, make a resolution
If your goal is for five years, make a plan
If you goal will change the world, share your vision.
If you have a world changing vision, plant people.
Remember, your vision will change the world!
