“One can chase a thousand and two can put ten thousand to flight.” ~ Deuteronomy 32:30
I feel very inspired right now. Earlier today I led the first session of a marketplace Bible study for some incredible leaders and entrepreneurs. The long-term potential of this group is even greater than I realized when God first gave me the idea to do it. Here are a few of my thoughts now that the first meeting is over…
Two (or more) minds are often better than just one. Achieving your dreams for you is uplifting, encouraging, and inspirational. However, partnering with others to achieve something unthinkable becomes legendary. As great as your ideas may be, they have the potential to be even much more robust and effective when you are able to combine them with other’s ideas. That’s innovation that makes a difference!
There are enough businesses out there for you to compete with each other. You need to find some entrepreneurs with whom you can complete each other. I call that “coopetition.“
I love this quote by Napoleon Hill…
“When TWO or MORE people coordinate in a spirit of HARMONY and work toward a definite OBJECTIVE or PURPOSE, they place themselves in position, through the alliance, to absorb POWER directly from the Great Storehouse of INFINITE INTELLIGENCE.”
Whether you call it a mastermind group, board of directors, dream team, or something else, there is great power in joining with other great thinkers in the pursuit of something far greater than what you could conquer on your own. “Lone Rangers” will eventually be strangers to success.
If you desire to maximize the potential of your time, talents and ideas, find some people with whom you can cooperatively pursue significant opportunities. Exponential results are awaiting your business!
Thrive on purpose,

Are you aware that up to 97% of Christians surveyed disclose that they don’t hear sermons or messages that specifically connect their work life to their spiritual life? Are you one of them? If so, Dream B.I.G. in 3D will be the missing link for you to activate your gifts, find your niche, and fulfill God’s calling for you in the workplace.
