Chapter 2, Page 9, Book 16

Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything. 

Peter Marshall

February 9th - It all starts with a vision.

The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.

Helen Keller

A vision is an inspired idea. It is a concept that motivates you and pushes you into action. It’s a good habit to develop a vision for yourself and then  live your life consistent with your highest ideals.  You never compromise your integrity or peace of mind for anyone or anything.

You know when a vision hits you, by the energy and excitement you feel. A clear vision gets you charged and keeps you going. The very thought fills you with energy and positive feelings.

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.
Albert Einstein

You will never rise any higher than the image you have of yourself. You will never accomplish anything that you first do not see yourself accomplishing. Vision is the bridge between the past and the future. Vision is the eye of faith to see the invisible and the decisiveness to make it visible.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Melody Beattie

How Sweet it is!

I ADMIRE THE VISIONARY, they can inspire. It doesn't take wealth to be insightful. Helen Keller is one of my "Most admired People" and I love the quote you used"

The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision! Beautiful.

So true how you need to have a vision if you want to accomplish some things in life. Without it, I think someone can get bounced around with ideas but never really commit to getting anything done.
