In Martin Luther King’s vision of the future, he was described a life that was far better than he believed was actually possible in his own lifetime.  He was fearless in his description of a better life for his children and the generations to come.  He had no idea how the vision was going to come to life, but because he believed that a better future was possible, he committed to taking the small steps each day to get him…

Therefore, your vision statement should be based on…
