As I reflect on this question I am reminded of an interview I saw with former Ohio State University Running back Ezekiel Elliott. . During the interview, the reporter asked him why he chose Ohio State over the other universities. According to Elliott, it all came down to his encounter with the head coach Urban Meyer.
He recalled his first visit on campus where he met the coach in his office. They shook hands and before Elliot could take his seat, Meyer surprised him with the following question: “So Ezekiel, when we’re on the victory stage and I’m handing you the national championship trophy, what will you do next?”
To which Elliott replied “Uhmm, I guess I will kiss it and raise it in the air with both hands.”
Well, two years after the meeting with coach Meyer, Elliot was on the victory stage after leading Ohio State to the National Championship! Meyer handed Elliott the trophy and he raised it in the air with both hands after kissing it!
Here's the big takeaway: If you can view it, you can do it.
Coach Meyer was a man of "Vision & Purpose."
As long as you have "Vision & Purpose", You can get what you want in life!
Our guests today are The founders of Vision & Purpose Magazine............

Frustrating right? Fast forward to year five and it starts with you continuing to do the right things to grow your tree with no visible progress. Have you ever felt like you were planting a bamboo tree?
Then halfway through the fifth year, everything changes. Suddenly, the tree sprouts and grows ninety feet in six weeks! So how do you maximize The Law of The Bamboo Tree:
