JPPC-13Dec2009-10AM. Molded into the kind of person that are capable of fulfilling the mission

The person who receive the vision are different than the one who fulfill the vision.

The person who receive the vision has a capability of X. Yet to fulfill the vision, it requires a person with a capability of 10x, or 100x, or 1000x, or whatever, but definitely bigger than X.

Thus, the person who receive the vision has to grow and molded into someone with 100x, then he can fulfill the vision.

Life, it’s challenges, your adversity, your opportunity, your lack of resource, are all about molding you. the person who receive the vision, to be the person who could fulfill the vision.

Embrace the mold, be brave, and being in the mold, adapt transform expand cut throw away, to be a copy of the mold.

Then after you become a copy of that mold. Be ready for the next mold.

Molding you into the person who can fulfill the vision.
