The Three Bricklayers

A story that well summarizes the power of Vision, is the story of three bricklayers. The story goes, that three bricklayers were working side by side. 

When asked, “What are you doing?”, the first bricklayer replied:

I’m laying bricks.” clip_image002

The second bricklayer was asked. He answered, 

Feeding my family.” clip_image004

The third bricklayer when asked the question, “What are you doing?”, responded, 

I’m building a cathedral.”


The question is, are you trying to reach your goals in your business with bricklayers or cathedral builders?A vision is really like a magnet. It draws people toward it.
The vision takes them from the past and commits them to the future.

Vision is our internal compass —
working on your business
…not just in your business.

“Vision without action is merely a dream;
Action without vision just passes the time.
Vision with action can change the world.”
~ Joel Barker This story clearly reveals two secrets of success:

1. Attitude
Your attitude towards whatever you are doing determines your ultimate level of success.

2. Ability to See the Bigger Picture
Being able to see the end result, rather than just the task, eliminates obstacles, focuses your energy, and provides motivation to excel.
