It has been said over and over again:
Where there is no vision, the people perish: But he that keepeth the law, happy is he.Proverbs 29:18 KJV
We tend to focus more on the “people perish where there is no vision” and not enough on the fact that “vision perish where there are not enough people” to believe in it. We need to be reminded that a true vision is by definition the redemptive plan of God for a people group, it will always take more than a person to deliver the result. That is why a visionary must understand the need to build a core team with humility and self-sacrifice. The vision dies without people actively working together to make it work.
The number one job of a principal is to sell the vision and get people to buy into it. It is impossible to succeed alone, you cannot succeed alone. We are not talking about some personal ambition like buying a house or starting a business, we are talking about big, world-changing visions. A vision that originates from heaven will always be too big for a single individual to accomplish. It would be very difficult, if not out rightly impossible, for an individual to gather enough knowledge and effort that is required for massive success. This was the principal mistake of Samson; he tried to execute a vision single-handedly. No team.
A study of the bible would reveal that when you have a world-changing vision, the first step is to build a team. We all consider Jesus to be the Son of God, God in human flesh, all-powerful and all-knowing, yet, even Jesus had a team. He recruited people, trained them in his vision for a better world, and led them with humility and self-sacrifice. There is no way around this. Your vision might not see the light of day unless you get at least five people to coordinate with you in a spirit of harmony for a definitive purpose. When there are not enough people to believe in the vision, we will fail to generate enough power to birth the vision. There is no way around this.
