Podcast: What -OR- Success is recipe, not a lottery ticket (The Ladder Series #2)- #20

advance podcast priorities the ladder Jul 24, 2017


The first step in living any dream is to decide what that dream is. Sounds obvious, right?  I mean, how are you going to go ANYWHERE if you don’t first have a destination?

Cristy and I go on a date every week. Sometimes, we get into this debacle… perhaps you’ve been there: 

“Where do you want to eat?”

“I don’t know. Where do you want to go?”

Suggestion made. 

Reply = “Anything but that!”

Been there? Done that? (This works both ways- sometimes she makes the turned-down suggestion; others times I do it!)

It’s frustrating, isn’t it? It kinda stalls out the first part of the evening.  

And, the truth is that this kind of thing can keep you stalled out in life, too. 

Solomon wrote, “Where there is no vision the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18). They lose heart. They grow faint and weary. They find themselves hopeless. They find themselves in despair. 

In this episode of the podcast I talk about success- and how it’s simply a recipe. That brings two items of great news- 

Great news #1- it’s a proven process. You can look at what others do and you can follow along, getting similar results.

Great news #2- there’s no shortage. Often, we look at success as if it’s a lottery ticket. If someone else wins, that means you didn’t. It means you CAN’T, in fact… that it’s IMPOSSIBLE.

Success isn’t like that, though. 

There's enough to go around. We can all win. We can all help each other. We’re not in competition.

OK- just covered a lot… 

Listen in. Great stuff, I promise :-)
