Empowered with vision

What better way to empower yourself than with vision?

The quote below, from @Lifehack and shared this morning on Facebook by Guy Kawasaki, spoke to me in a special way and like a good social media post, it did its job. It got me to share.

 Similarly inspiring quotes and photos can be found at MotivationGrid.com in a post titled "10 Sentences That Can Change your Life," and while they are all good, this one rises above the rest.

 What makes it so great? I think that it gives you permission to rise. Often we fear that our friends and acquaintances will resent us for what appears to be social-climbing when we seek out promotions and new experiences. With permission, we can overcome the fear. Plus, the quote also explains that even though rising up is self-serving, it is a personal goal to improve oneself. It is not a cry for praise.

"Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world." Start climbing today.
