Value The Meantime
Jun 02, 2019
You’re looking off to the future and not paying attention to the moment
You’re looking just for the highlights – Every minute is a highlight
You are looking 4 months right now, but the moment now is ripe for harvest
We are always excited about where we think we are going, that we never take the moment to look at the steps that it will take to get there
You are focused on your primetime and fail to realize the significance of the meantime
If God gave us more meantime than anything else, are we wrong to focus on the prime time in the expense of what He’s doing in the meantime?
What if your vision is a stumbling block where you’re missing opportunities every single day because you’re tripping over the blessing in the moment trying to get to what’s expected
We walk over little things that look like little things, but the little things are really big things
Your primetime is a reflection of everything you do consistently in the meantime
What if we are so busy looking at it that we put ourselves in a position to never get it?
Value the meantime
What if life is not about the highlight and primetime moment? What if the primetime moment is automatic if you learn to properly manage your meantime?
Instagram is a highlight – and maybe that’s making us just focus on the highlights
What if what we are after is going to show up anyway, and we could have spent our time focused on what’s important?
Your life is consumed with what will be and mismanaging what could be (what’s in front of you) – it makes you change your values
We are always rushing (rushing to get to a light or beat the car just to hit the light) – What are you missing?
You’re going to get there anyway
What are we missing by not being meantime appreciators?
What relationships are slacking because you’re so focused on the thing that’s out there that is going to come anyway. You do it all for them but don’t see them.
It’s already ready
Depression is the result of an expectation unmet in a moment, that has you so discouraged that you fail to see the blessing that’s in the moment
Highlights don’t last forever
Who did you kill on the way there? Who did you forget about because all you care about are the people who can help you?
What gets neglected when you’re not looking at where your feet are?
The area we need to grow in, we haven’t grown enough to even know you need to grow in that area
You tell God you’re ready… You want to know when you know you’re not ready? When it doesn’t come
Don’t let that discourage you, it just means you need to grow
When you’re at the grow phase, it’s because God is protecting you from you
It’s not about your talent, it’s about your altitude – your talent at this level, is different than that same talent on another level
There’s a reason you’re not doing it
He allows you to grow so you don’t make a fool of yourself
Practice: It gives you a place to make a mistake without the whole world knowing about it
All the kinks are being worked out
Don’t be mad you don’t have the stage to do it, it’s about you being excellent and practicing at the level you’re on – once you master it you will be promoted
Prepare: It’s going to take you more than being creative to be successful
There is more than enough content and talent flooding the world we live in – You have to be smart
Learn the environment that your talent is to be placed into
Learn the things you wouldn’t normally go after to learn so when your time comes it won’t be a shock
You gotta get tough for greatness
Maybe you are more anointed than them, but maybe they were tougher than you
When we have a primetime focus, we don’t value people properly – If you’re only focused on primetime, you’re only focused on people that can get you to that moment
You need ordinary people in your life to keep you from losing yourself
Not every day one person can be at day 1000 because they don’t help you evolve, BUT you cannot throw a person away just because they aren’t on your level in some areas
You need people in your life that don’t think you’re all that
People who don’t want anything from you, you need that because they can talk to you in a different way
Relationships literally give you access to primetime
Don’t get to primetime and have people around you that are using you like how you were using them
Don’t abuse relationships on your way to whatever
There’s something in your meantime, that if you don’t see it, you’ll miss
Primetime will come to you if you work with God in the meantime
What have you been walking by every single day?
Social media makes you feel like everyone is living in their primetime except you – That’s the biggest lie ever
You thought it was 4 months, 4 years away, 4 interviews away, 4 meetings away – it’s right here and it’s within your reach
