What is the most important outcome of your mission? What do you want your future to be like? You must create an ambitious goal for the future you want and then pursue it. If you believe in your mission, you should care enough to do the work required for a great outcome. In the words of Henry Ford, “whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” The future is entirely up to you. It’s fine if you decide to start a $10,000-a-year business. It is also possible to build a $20 million per year business.
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has created a “Vision 2032”. It is hoped that by 2032, the church will have at least 40 million members. For aggressive church growth, RCCG is renowned. A decision that receives both support and criticism in equal measure. Because they genuinely believe in their mission, the church continues to set ambitious growth goals. They believe that more churches make the world a better place. This is why the church continues to strive for expansion and to fulfill its mission. Why aren’t you championing your mission every day if it’s genuine and has the potential to make a difference in your community?
Clarity is the first step towards creating a better futuristic picture for yourself. A confused person is unable to concentrate on anything in particular. Matthew 6:22 (AMP) says, “The eye is the lamp of the body; so if your eye is clear [spiritually perceptive], your whole body will be full of light [benefiting from God’s precepts].” You’ll be able to determine what works within the context of your mission once you have clarity on it. You cannot manage your mission if nothing is measured. So, you must decide what you will measure. As a result, expansion becomes a matter of increasing your numbers.
