Ep.205 | 5 Minute Drill | Act Through Alignment, Not Your Agenda

For so many years, I made God’s vision for my life and career my idol. I admit, I loved the vision He gave me more than God himself. That’s a problem…a BIG problem.

Ever been accused of having an agenda? Ever been around people who seem to always have an agenda? 

I ask because I had to get slapped upside my figurative head about this. Now, I could always discern who loves their vision more than God. It’s pretty obvious because their agenda oozes out of them. 

In today’s 5 Minute Drill, I’m going to get real about agendas and our motives with others. Stop lying to yourself – we’re all guilty of having an agenda – at home, in our professional lives, in random conversations…everywhere. And I had a recent epiphany that I want to share with you that I turned into a Drill. 

If you want to make sure you’re putting yourself in the best possible position to influence and attract people who can accelerate you, then make sure to lock in to today’s Drill.
