Be Stubborn About the Vision

“Failed plans should not be interpreted as a failed vision.
Visions don’t change, they are only refined. Plans rarely stay the same, and are scrapped or adjusted as needed.
Be stubborn about the vision, but flexible with your plan.”
~ John C. Maxwell,
Author, Speaker & Pastor

Consider How You Want Your World to Be

“The more closely you get in touch with your dreams, the more able you are to make them real. The more vividly you consider how you want your world to be, the more real and effective tools you will have for making it so.
Dare to visualize a world in which your most treasured dreams have become true.”
~ Ralph Marston,
Author

A Marriage of Friendship & Passion

“Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love.
For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other
which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.”
~ Marilyn Monroe

All He Asked You to Do Was Write It

“Don’t worry about who’s going to pay for it.
Don’t worry about who’s going to execute it.
Don’t worry about who’s going to stand in agreement with it.
All He asked you to do was write the vision and then, read it.
Remind yourself of what you said. Remind yourself of where you’re going.”
~ T. D. Jakes, Sr.,
Bishop/Chief Pastor of The Potter’s House,
Author & Filmmaker

Aiming to Always Progress

“I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce.
But how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings?
If someone lives through an accident, his aim is to become better and healthy.
My aim is always to progress – to make better decisions and be a better father,
a better boyfriend, a better husband if it happens again.
~ Ryan Phillippe,
Actor
