Where’s Your Focus?

In my over 30 years of advising and coaching both business and church leaders, I am saddened to say that there is an escalation of a terrible reality.

Even with thousands of books, blogs, articles, resources and endless “shouting from the mountain tops,” well meaning professionals continue to choose the wrong path to accomplish their goals. They allow themselves to be quickly (and sometime destructively) walking the wrong path toward their destiny.

Seek First

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33

How many times have we read or heard this verse?

How many more times will it take for us to “get it” and actually “do it?”

Please, this is NOT a condemnation – it is an EXHORTATION for us to simply judge all we do along the best path, the path we know we are created to walk, and not be so easily led astray.

Two Ways

Several years ago, a client and good friend called me about a speaking opportunity. At that time he was the President of the Mobile, Alabama Chamber of Commerce. He asked if I would be interested in speaking at the annual meeting of all US Chamber of Commerce executives and regional directors in Boca Raton, FL.  Well “Duh” – of course I said yes.

I had worked with him many times for his chamber, from keynoting his annual chamber celebration to leadership development within his executive team. Rather than ask me to give one of my “canned” topics, he said all my stuff was good…

But this time, Jim, can you just remind us of what we already know?

Sometimes we just need to be reminded of what we already know. Here is a simple infographic list of the two ways we can work and live as we walk out our destiny.

Yes, you have heard this all before, but I was led this morning to create this memory jogger for all of us on the path we were created to walk!

I encourage you to download this infographic and save it on your phone, iPad and computer.

My prayer is that this infographic be a powerful “Memory Jogger” to keep you on His path doing His business for His reasons.
