"The vision that you glorify in your mind, the ideal that you enthrone in your heart, this you will build your life by and this you will become” Anonymous

 I was a Guest Lecturer at Fresh Minds Academy. I spoke to them as part of my goal in life to develop and raise effective leaders in various fields of life without cost. Here are some of the excerpts   

Why are we here today? It's all about People.... Leadership... Vision Management.      
Quality people differentiate good companies from mediocre ones. Intellectual capital and emotional capital (the discretional effort of motivated staff) are now the key measures today.

Let me begin with some quotable quotes.
I am not a genius. I am only passionately curious” Albert Estienne



What are you curious about? What is that thing that gives you joy and satisfaction the most. Build your life around that. Your success lies in that. That is why you must enjoy your work and not endure your work.

“The illiterate of the future is not the person who cannot read but the person who does not want to learn”

It’s important we learn how to manage our visions in life. That is why Fresh Minds Academy was established some years back. We are here to learn on so as to take our chance when it comes.
According to one of the greatest American President Abraham Lincom, he said  “ I will study , learn and get ready perhaps my chance will come”
His chance came. Yes or no?
What is the Vision of your life? What is the vision of your business?
To understand the above, one need to understand what vision is.
The empires of the future are empires of the mind “ Winston Churchhil

Where there is no vision the people perish  Proverbs 29:18

What is vision?                     

DEFINITION OF VISION

  • The act or power of anticipating that which will or mau come to be: Prophetic vision, the vision of entrepreneur.
  • An experience in which a personage, thing or event appears vividly or credibly to the mind, although not actually present, often under the influence of a devine or other agency.
  • A vivid imaginative conception or anticipation . visions of wealth and glory.


Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be. Your ideal is their prophecy of what you shall at last unveil”
. James Allen
 "A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done"  Ralph Lauren
 I will like to share with you the story about the man who started the Disney world. He had this wonderful vision of Disney world and described it vividly to the wife, all  he had in mind about the project. Unfortunately, he died before the commissioning of the biggest project of his life. A man on the occasion said how he wished that Disney has seen this wonderful work before he could go on, the wife intercepted. He saw it from the very beginning  before we all are gathered here today. my husband saw it


 "The vision that you glorify in your mind, the ideal that you enthrone in your heart, this you will build your life by and this you will become"
There is a great relationship between vision and mission.
Vision differs from but complements Mission and philosophy.
Mission: States the basic purpose of the organization, defines it's relationships to other organizations and sets objectives
Vision : vision builds on mission statement to describe the future size, shape of the organization
Vision sets specific goals, drives and guide actions to achieve these goals

A person who has vision constantly has a picture of how things should be which ultimately leaves him with mental guidance /direction. On the other hand, a person who lacks vision dwells only on the immediate and often lacks the energy and courage to pursue the ideal” Prof BEB Nwoke

A visionless person lacks the drive and can not work towards a long term advancement or stability.

“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but has no vision” Helen Keller.
Vision And Perception :
if you want to be effective businessman you got to be a person with vision
Be an eagle!
Lesson from the Eagle According to Erudite Scholar Prof. BEB Nwoke
* The monarch of the sky
* The perfect flying machine
* In aerodynamics, wonder of the sky, king of the birds
*Eagle-eyed persons are capable of seeing to a great distance
*They are focused.
* Effective businessman are focused.
* Keep their mind on the task at hand and very good at the job.
*They are not distracted like the Eagle
