I love the quote by Helen Keller that says, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no VISION”. Vision is so important in life and especially in business. As believers we should be partnering with God to receive a God-given vision for our businesses. His word says in Proverbs [29:18]- Where there is no VISION, the people perish; but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
So let’s focus on what is means to have a God-given vision for our business with the word of the day from this Marketing Monday video from 2020: To help us focus to begin the process of focusing on VISION take a look at the video or read the summary to learn more.
What’s the vision you have for your business?
I give a few examples of business vision statements for popular companies in my marketing planner, THE BEST MARKETING PLANNER. For instance, Google’s vision is to provide access to the world’s information in one click. Nike’s vision statement is to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world. Zappos’ vision statement is all about happiness; they want to deliver happiness to customers, employers, and vendors. American Express wants respect because their vision is to work hard every day to make American Express the world’s most respected service brand.
We learn from those vision statement examples that vision statements are more about what they want their product or service to accomplish in the world versus being specific about the service or product itself.
In the Bible, God gave Abraham a vision that he will be the father of many nations. At the time Abraham and his wife were very old and had no kids, so the God-given vision seemed impossible in the natural, but we serve a God who is super natural. The vision that He gives us supersedes the natural world.
My company’s vision is to become a trusted resource and support for faith-based women entrepreneurs and business owners who want to increase their impact, influence, and income. I believe in the ripple effect…..if a woman is able to accomplish her vision then you will see it in every part of her life including her family, community, country, and worldwide.
What do you want your product or service to accomplish to make the world a better place? (Drop your vision statement and/or your comments and thoughts in the comment section)
