The Make It Happen Moment ® Compound Vision

Quote: "One person with vision is greater than the passive force of ninety-nine people who are merely interested in doing or becoming something!" - John Stuart Mill paraphrased by Dr. Myles Munroe
If one person with vision is greater than the passive force of ninety-nine people, then just imagine how great the force can be of two people with the same vision working together with mutual purpose. According to the math stated above, the force of those two people would be greater than that of 198 passive people. Do you see the dynamic multiplication effect that can be found with compound vision? Combining the Law of Motion with the Law of Unity produces a progressive, exploding force that is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12 states, "though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken." In the Book of Deuteronomy, Moses elaborates even further on the exponential power of unity, sharing that "one can put 1,000 to flight and two can put 10,000 to flight."
It is clear that people with vision working together can not only make things happen, but rather make BIG things happen. But it must first start with vision, and then be continually fueled by passion, otherwise, the vision will be nothing more than wishful thinking of people merely interested in doing something. It's the burning passion inside people with vision that ignites the Law of Momentum and things begin to happen.
In Dr. Myles Munroe's book, The Principles And Power Of Vision, he notes the following common view "that there are three kinds of people in the world: ...those who never seem to be aware that things are happening around them...those who ask, 'What just happened?'...those who make things happen." With a spirit of humility, fan into flame the gifts of God in you to do wholeheartedly the good works He has prepared for you to do. In this fashion, you shall be a passioneer [a pioneer filled with passion] finding real satisfaction and fun in your work as the Lord uses you in collaboration with others to multiply the returns of compound vision and make big things happen in life!
