“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
“Vision gets the dreams started. Dreaming employs your God-given imagination to reinforce the vision.
Both are part of something I believe is absolutely necessary to building the life
of a champion, a winner, a person of high character who is
consistently at the top of whatever game he or she is in.”

either by yourself or rehearsing with others –
it also includes imagining yourself practicing.
Your brain forms the same neural connections and muscle memory
whether you are imagining the task or actually doing it.”

Cellist, Educator, Composer, Humanitarian & Grammy Award Winner(15x)
“You will never leave where you are until
you see where you’d rather be!”

“All men dream, but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds,
wake in the day to find that it was vanity:
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men,
for they may act on their dreams with open eyes,
to make them possible.”
~ T. E. Lawrence,
Archaeologist, Military Officer, Diplomat & Writer
“Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind
a mental picture of yourself as succeeding.
Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade.
Your mind will seek to develop the picture.
Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.”

Author & Minister
