Inspirational Power Quote

 

Follow Your Vision

 

"The man with a new idea is a crank

until the idea succeeds."

 Mark Twain

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Follow your vision.  

There are times that others won't see your vision as you do and will call you a crank. 

While attending Yale University Fred Smith, the founder of FedEX wrote a term paper on the business model for what would become FedEX, his professor at Yale give him a C for his term paper.  

The professor explained to Smith that his idea was illogical, and no one would invest their money in a radical business concept or risk their career working for such a company.   

Fred Smith followed his vision and surrounded himself with committed people and launched FedEX in April 1973. 

Today Fred Smith is seen an enervator.   

Don't let people without vision stand between you and following your vision.

The more I learn of Mark Twain the more I respect him. I have several of his quotes that I like to use and this is a good one too.

Great quote - thanks for sharing it with us, Lou!  Mark Twain definitely uttered some sage words, didn't he?
