Do you have goals and dreams for your relationships, career or life that have not happened yet? Do you sometimes fear they will never come about?

Nothing starts happening until somebody starts dreaming.  Every accomplishment, every book, invention, government, school, etc. started off first as an idea in somebody’s mind.  It started off as a dream, a goal, a vision. If you don’t have a goal, you will probably not make much forward progress. If you aim at nothing, you’re sure to hit it.

OJ Simpson was one of the best running backs in the history of American football. As a child he wore braces on his legs. He once told a pro football player that he would become the best running back in football. When the footballer saw the braces he probably doubted OJ. But OJ had a dream, a powerful goal. He had vision and daydreamed about running the football day and night. As the years went by, he slowly became the best running back ever.

A plan or a desire or wish, without a vision is never going to grow, and an organization’s vision will never be larger than the vision of its leader.  So you as a leader must have accurate vision for your organization.  The very first task of leadership is to set the vision for the organization.  If you don’t set the vision, you’re not the leader.  Whoever is establishing the vision in your organization is the leader of that organization.  An organization will seldom outgrow its vision and the vision of an organization will never outgrow the vision of the leader.

So I want to challenge you to dream great dreams.  One good thing about dreaming is that it doesn’t cost anything.  You can have great dreams and think through and pray through and it doesn’t cost you anything at all.  The Bible says  “God is able to do far more than anything we would ever dare to ask or even dream of, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts or hopes.” (Ephesians 3:20, Living Bible). God comes along and says, “Think up the biggest thing you think I can do in your life, in your career, in your family and I can top that.  I can help you do better than you thought you could.”

So ask yourself this question, “What would I want to do if I knew I couldn’t fail?  Let that expand your horizons.  Let it expand your dreams.  Expand your vision.  It starts with a dream.
