Receiving A Vision For Your Business

 

Receiving A Vision For Your Business

 

Have you ever wandered who am I?, what’s my purpose? …and what’s my plan?

 Well, one solution to the question is developing a good plan which contains Vision, Mission, Goals, Strategy and Tactics.

 When developing the plan ….Vision establishes responsibility     Mission empowers authority    Goals evaluate purpose    Strategy executes the preparation   Tactics emulate the plan.

 Fulfilling the plan requires:

Vision which unifies teamwork    Mission which fulfills the vision     Goals which accomplish the mission    Strategy which achieves the goals   and Tactics which carry out the strategy.

 The first part of the plan is Vision. The definition of Vision is the unveiling of something already there, not new. It is an inspiration, desire, direction and plan for your vocation or calling. It is the ability to see the invisible and to do the impossible. Foresight is added to insight based on hindsight. Vision is single sight. It masters one thing, not a jack of all trades. Vision must have a recipient. Vision has no time limit. It is an internal clear picture of preferred future.

 When describing the vision write it down, make it plain and share it with others who may want to join you or your team to help fulfill it   Habakkuk 2:2 says:  And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

 

Vision has five elements: 

Cause – Why;  

History – What; 

Timing - When

Solution – How;  

and Teamwork – Who and Where

 

Teamwork is unified by vision. The

team consists of:

Visionaries – who inspire

 Provisionaries – who supply

 Connectors – who activate

 Facilitators – who perform a task

 Recipients – who benefit & join the team

 

 Recipients who join the team are mentored and become future:

   Visionaries

      Provisionaries

         Connectors

            Facilitators  ….  And the

               Multiplication continues

And the multiplication continues on and on.

 Teamwork is unified with proper planning …Planning is the Key

 As an example of planning unifying teamwork.  Recently a group from the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International went to the Nation of Armenia. They developed a team of Armenian business men to take the Good News to their own country. The various tools utilized were planning and training sessions resulting in a new emphasis on Marketplace Evangelism in this strategic middle eastern nation.

 Rick worked for his brother in a small business. The relationship was good until Rick found peace with God. Friction began to develop between the brothers. Rick's brother missed the old Rick as he could relate with the old man. Now they were as difference as night and day. Rick was ready to buy out his brother or start a new business. Every property that Rick thought was a possibility and inquired on fell through. Rick asked God to show him what to do. Was he to go into a ministry? The answer was revealed while he was working…he saw the vision appear as you might see in a child’s etch-u-sketch.  The detailed drawing was of Rick’s workplace. God wanted him to stay right there. Rick knew in his heart that he would always be at his current workplace.  When Rick's brother became ill and accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, prior to his death, he told Rick that he wanted him to buy the business.  Today at Rick's business, which became his pulpit, you will find the uplifting Christian music playing in the background while Rick prays with his customers to help comfort their needs and best of all leading them to salvation in Jesus Christ. This is one man's marketplace ministry. Rick is my barber.
