Key Points

1. How Do Successful People Continue To Stay On Course and Handle Shifts To New Levels?

Sometimes it is best to simplify things.  Just trust.  Declutter your mind.  Even when we have a lot going on, we can remain at peace. Proverbs chapter 3:5-6 says to trust in the Lord and not lean on your own understanding.  The idea of trusting in God is difficult for many people.  This scripture reveals that we can trust God in ALL our ways instead of just selective trust.  Faith has power.  Faith has the power to create a breakthrough.  Discipline is important.  Tim says, “if you don’t do something with life, life will do something with you.”  Make up your mind – make a conscious decision that this year will not be like last year.

What is the “God idea” for your life?  Do not over think it.    Have childlike faith and simply trust God’s plan.

2. How Can We Overcome The Shame of a Mistake Or Bad Decision To Avoid Derailing Our Long Term Efforts?

Feel the pain.  You should feel the pain because there are consequences and repercussions for actions.  Psalms 103 says that God doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve.  God moves in mercy and grace, and grace fills in the gaps.  Many of Tim’s clients, when they make mistakes, he does not try to talk them out of feeling the pain, but he does instruct them to move on.  He asks them to seek forgiveness from those they have wronged, take inventory of your part in the situation, and then chose to get better by learning from the situation.  If we try to act like it is not a big deal and “brush it off”, we will likely continue to repeat similar mistakes.

Do not let short term mistakes or distractions to derail your long term efforts.  Reach out for help from those stronger than yourself.  These individuals can help walk you through the process.  Be fully honest with others, but with yourself.


Go side by side with humankind.  Don’t just “give back”.

4. What Are Some Ways We Can Better Show Those Around Us That We Care?

Stop, look, and listen.  Take time to have conversations with people.  Tim shares a storey of going to a convenience store and being approached by a homeless man.  Tim will many times take 20 minutes and sit and talk with him.  The conversation topics he focuses on are things like, “What do you think about Lebron coming to the Lakers?”  Give people time.   Dialogue with them.  Ask thoughtful questions.  Stop, look, and listen.   Be a human being, not a human-doing.  Try to set up your life in a manner that does not bind you to a schedule.  Be willing and free to call an audible.
