What is the one thing that will kill your dream more than anything else? Now there are many dream assassins that we can talk about, we can talk about people, distraction, lack of resources, timing, etc. But what I found in my work is that the number one dream assassin is impatience. Everything has a gestation period, everything has an incubation period, everything has a period of time where it works itself out. Let me tell you about my experience with this.

Do you know people who start stuff and quit? It is a pattern, you see them doing it again and again. They have an idea and they never finish. They start a project but give to someone else because they don’t want to do it anymore. But then you also see people start things and finish with perseverance. They both have challenges, they both have setbacks, they both have failures, they both come to a place where they lack resources, they have similar challenges. One quits, the other perseveres. What are you doing today?

Everybody wants to excel “then” but excellence “then” starts now. I want to suggest that if you could master your context right now, whatever you’re doing, whatever position you are in, whatever your title might be, master what you are doing now. Because your excellence in the future is not contingent on the future, your excellence in future is contingent on how you are handling what you are doing now.

Guest Leader: Senior Pastor of the Place of Grace in Los Angeles, CA.

All of us have chapters in our lives, just like you do. You exit a chapter, you enter another chapter. Your entry and the success of your entry to the next chapter will be totally contingent on how you exited the last chapter. Many people leave jobs, nothing wrong with that. Many people leave positions, nothing wrong with that, I have done all of that. The real question is not “What am I going to do in the next chapter?” My question is “If you are thinking about exiting, how are you going to exit exceptionally well?”

Everybody wants a promotion. I want a promotion, you want a promotion, we want to go to the next level, however you want to phrase that, but we all want a promotion. All promotion is based on your character. Character is, “Can I trust you?” That is what character asks. Everything is about trust. So trust has two components, competence and credibility. Let me elaborate on those to make it clear.

Some people think that money makes you smart. But you and I have seen people who were rich morons. Rich people with no sense. So money doesn’t make you smart, all money does is give you options. If you have money, and you have plenty of it, you can go anywhere you want. If you don’t have a lot of money your options are fewer. All money does is it gives you options.

Are you in a leadership position but lack financial resources? Do you have a dream that has been downsized by finances you don’t have?

So the first thing I want to say to you, write this down, it is never about resources it is always about resourcefulness. It is not what you have, but do you have access to people who do have it.

I ask myself this question all the time. I’m going to be 65 this year, I should be further along. I should be further along in my thinking, I should be further along in my maturity, I should be further along with almost 40 years of marriage. I should be further along… Who hasn’t asked that question? That to me used to be, a discouraging question, a disappointing question. I then quickly give that thought a different frame. Here is what I do.
