Think about all the things you’ve done so far this year… were they necessary?
Not all things benefit you
No matter how old you are, you’re going to be dead soon – 70 years are so short, you don’t have time to waste anymore
No time for experimentation, it’s time for intentional living
Know your purpose so you don’t waste anymore days
There’s some people in your life who are not necessary – Some of you have the wrong company. Eating your time, wasting your time, eating with them, watching tv with them and God is saying you’re still not getting to where you’re supposed to get to. These people are distractions!
When you have a vision, it simplifies your life
Everything you do should be motivated by your vision
If you want to be successful, do not seek success, seek to become a person of value
Make yourself valuable – People pay for value
If somebody had to think of something that reminded them of you, what would it be? If they never think about you, you have never made yourself valuable. You become a jack of too many trades and master nothing. When you think of Michael Jordan, what do you think about? When you think of Tiger Woods, what do you think about?
Your problem is they don’t think about you at all
Become so good in an area that they can’t ignore you
All true visions will be tested for authenticity
If your vision is truly from God, life will test it to show its authenticity
We only hate things we don’t understand
There were some little things you were born to do that they can’t get rid of
A lot of you don’t know how dangerous your company is – If you’re the smartest one in the group, it’s time to leave that group
If they’re always asking you for things, you think that’s good, but that’s bad. You want to keep company that makes you think and expand and who you ask questions to
To hear your insides you have to get rid of the distractions on the outside
The reason you can’t see is because you’re looking at too much. Your heart cannot see because your eyes have too many distractions
Your future is not ahead of you, it’s trapped inside of you
Your future is in you, it’s been there all along, but there’s too much noise
As soon as you get in the car, music. As soon as you get home, TV. God’s thinking man this is a lot of noise I can’t even get to them
God doesn’t play cat and mouse games with us – He wants you to know what you were born to do
Meditation is the most important aspect of prayer
You think prayer is talking, but you can’t hear God when you’re talking. Pray for 10 minutes, listen for 60 seconds
You keep asking God why He isn’t giving you direction, but it’s because you’re not looking for direction, you’re asking for instructions
