Thrive With Vision
God has and will revive, provide, and deliver.
He is sovereign. And when we have a vision coming from Him, He will provide the assets and resources we need to bring that vision to life. But we have to do our part.
What is the part you ask? And how do we do this?
Our part is to follow and communicate our vision early and often.
Communicating our vision means we have to get outside ourselves, and shift the lens from survive to thrive
Shifting The Lens
The difference between surviving and thriving is all in shifting the lens.
With a survival mentality we:
- ● Protect
- ● Defend
- ● Defeat our enemies
- ● Win
- ● Be right
But a thriving mentality takes a different approach. We:
- ● Grow instead of protect
- ● Learn instead of defend
- ● Connect instead of defeat
- ● Discover mutual gain rather than win
- ● Seek understanding rather than be right
Vision Wins when you work vision. This means we have to communicate our vision early and often. Let’s shift our lens from survive to thrive, and let our vision lead.
By shifting from survive to thrive, we’re going beyond blame, taking responsibility for who we are and our identity, and appreciating and valuing others, especially others on our team.
Once this shift in mentality happens, we will find a new brand narrative, and new personal and organizational positioning.
It may sound easy to make this switch, but it’s not.
But by taking the time to shift from survive to thrive, we’ll be able to work our vision and clearly communicate it.
It’s Time to Take Action
Now that we know the impact of shifting the lens from survive to thrive, it’s your turn to take a step towards thriving and shift the lens.
Take the time to rewrite and refine your brand narrative. Once you have it written, pray on your ability to deliver it, and then share it! Communicate it early and often. Share it with the world around you.
Whether you share your new thriving brand narrative by sharing it on your website, social media, email, or other communication channels, you’ll be working your vision, and one step closer to bringing it to your local community and someday the world.

I have more focus with all my passions - serving the community. I’m able to communicate what I'm here to do, and it's been great because I don't have to waste my time doing things that are not necessary for me.Jackie Omotosho
