VISION STATEMENTS THAT MOVED PEOPLE

VISION STATEMENTS THAT MOVED PEOPLE

Moses’ Vision of a “Land Flowing with Milk and Honey”: Exodus 3:7 presents one of the best vision statements in human history. It was presented by God to Moses who in turn presented it to the people of Israel. The vision catch phrase “land flowing with milk and honey” is repeated forty-six times in the English Bible, specifically in the Old Testament.

John F. Kennedy’s “Moon Trip” Vision: I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth.

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” Speech:  A vision that has yet to be realized but has the potential to transform and empower American culture at all levels.

These vision statements have motivated people to move heaven and earth to achieve new heights. Note that some of the examples of vision statements have other sensory perceptions embedded in them. We may like the taste of milk and honey; the round table provides a feeling of empowerment and equality; imagining the moon trip evokes much curiosity regarding feelings; and “I have a dream” provides feelings of good will in peace.  There are many vision statements listed were or are actualized at a high level, yet there are vision statements at various levels that transform single organizations or businesses as well as higher level vision statements that transform larger masses of people.
