Make It Count // Positively Speaking // Mark Wilson

There are three basic levels of living. 90% of people live at the survival level – just making it through day by day. 9% live at the success level – they have achieved a measure of accomplishment. Only 1% ever reaches the significance level – investing their lives in others and making a difference in the world.

What’s the level of your life right now? What are you going to do to grow and develop your God-given potential? Make it count! Make it count! The key to living a life of significance is to have a purpose – a vision. Proverbs 29:18 says “Without a vision, the people perish.”

Vision makes the difference between. . .

Maintenance and Growth
Mediocrity and Excellence
Same Old, Same Old and Freshness
Job and Passion
Obligation and Motivation
Boredom and Excitement
Quitting and Perseverance
When you understand that life has a deeper meaning, then you will pay the price necessary to make a difference.

The great missionary and explorer, David Livingstone, received a letter that said: “Dr. Livingstone, we would like to join you, now, in Africa if you can tell us where to find any good roads down there.” Livingstone replied, “I am not looking for people who will join me if there are good roads – I am looking for people who will join me if there are no roads at all!”

Do you know the major difference between ordinary and extraordinary? Ordinary people produce when they feel like it. Extraordinary people produce whether they feel like it or not! A task without a vision is drudgery. A vision without a task is a dream. A task with a vision is the hope of the world!
