When starting a business or an employment you don’t just go in blindly. Either you’ll be set to fall on a cliff of business credit or get trapped in an employment rat race. You need to set a vision. You need to have an imaginary pathway ahead of you. So for a startup, here are some great vision statements you have to look forward to:
# 1 From Disney: “To make people happy.”
Who is not happy when watching Disney movies? Who is not thrilled with excitement when a trip to Disneyland is announced? What about you? For a startup, do you want to make people happy with your service or your product?
# 2 From Ikea-: “To create a better life every day for the many people.”
Does your business or profession include providing services? Startup with the intention of making every client’s life a little bit better.
# 3 From Microsoft-: “A computer on every desk and in every home, all running Microsoft software.”
It’s a vision statement come true. Who doesn’t own a Microsoft-powered computer? Who doesn’t have a Microsoft app on their smartphones? Do you visualize your product to be like this? It is a great vision for a product startup. To have your product used by every home. You can also work hard to ensure that every client is satisfied with the product.
# 4 From Nike: “To be the number one athletic company in the world.” And from Wal-Mart: “Become a $125 billion company by the year 2000.”
For a startup vision statement, you can be disappointed at first. Avoid frustrations by having a specific startup statement. Be specific with the number that you want to achieve. Also be realistic in goal setting.
You can also use other companies as an inspiration of your startup vision statement:
#5 From Stanford University: “To become the Harvard of the West.”
#6 From Giro Sports Design: “To become the Nike of the cycling industry.”
#7 Reach for Success: “To become the next Tony Robbins in self-development.”
Do you want to improve and change for the better? Here are some powerful statements:
#8 From Sony: “Become the company known for changing the worldwide poor-quality image of Japanese products.
#9 From GE: “Become the number on or two in every market we serve and revolutionize this company to have the strengths of a big company combined with the leanness and agility of a small company.
Remember, the things that will make you successful are just outside your comfort zone. Be ruthless when facing hindrances. Be passionate about your goal. This is it. Don’t hold back and there is no going back.
