Prosperous is the one who understands that a life without
vision is utterly destitute. For with vision, seemingly
unattainable treasures will become his legacy.

The next time you enjoy the merits of olive oil for cooking or bite into a ripe, salty olive, take a minute to think about this. From the time an olive tree is planted, twenty to forty years will pass before a mature crop is harvested. In many cases, growers will never see the fruit of their labors. For many years the olive tree will require pruning and oversight at the hand of a person with this driving, long-term goal: reaping the luscious fruit and golden oil of his labors. Far beyond the lifetime of this visionary, the olive tree will grow and produce for as much as a thousand years or more. Generation upon generation will be blessed by one man’s goals set into motion. Having a goal affects not only us but those who share our life, influence and legacy. It has been said; “You truly become a man when you can not only take care of yourself but also others”. How big is your vision? Set short-term and long-term goals. Do it right now! Posterity will thank you.
