What Got You Here Won't Get You There

  1. 1. WHAT GOT YOU HERE WON'T GET YOU THERE Marshall Goldsmith's Notes by Francis Madojemu
  2. 2. YOU ARE HERE Map: Some have internal maps and don't need anyone to help but most of us don't. If you don't know where you are you won't know how to get to where you want to or need to go! Shopping malls with Taxis
  3. 3. LETS ASK GOD TO HELP US KNOW WHERE WE ARE Christianity is unique it has a Map ( the bible) and A guide ( The Holy Spirit)God seeing how important this is to our lives Keep your eye on the money Andy Stanley
  4. 4. LORD, I NEED TO LOCATE MYSELF In You In Your Plans for my life In Your Plans for My Business In your plans for my family In your plans for this nation In your plans for this church
  5. 5. THIS NATION HAS TO ALSO LOCATE ITSELF IN THE PLANS OF GOD AND THE COMPANY OF NATIONS We have false images of our ourselves Locate ourselves in history. I can't be caught in the wrong place The report about us are greatly exaggerated rated President Jonathan but exactly how This nation has to also locate itself in the plans of God and the company of nations
  6. 6. THE CHURCH NEEDS TO LOCATE ITSELF Why am I here What s lacking or missing Locate yourself relative to where I need to go To understand where I need to go
  7. 7. THE CHURCH NEEDS TO LOCATE ITSELF Where am I and who am I That's the first thing Not where am I going or what do I need to invest in
  8. 8. JACOB DID THAT Genesis 32:22-23 (NKJV) Wrestling with God 22 And he arose that night and took his two wives, his two female servants, and his eleven sons, and crossed over the ford of Jabbok. 23 He took them, sent them over the brook, and sent over what he had.
  9. 9. JACOB DID THAT Genesis 32:24-32 (NKJV) Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. 25 Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob's hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. 26 And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.” But he said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!”
  10. 10. JACOB DID THAT Genesis 32:24-32 (NKJV) 27 So He said to him, “What is your name?” He said, “Jacob.” 28 And He said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed.” 29 Then Jacob asked, saying, “Tell me Your name, I pray.” And He said, “Why is it that you ask about My name?” And He blessed him there.
  11. 11. JACOB DID THAT Genesis 32:24-32 (NKJV) 30 So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: “For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” 31 Just as he crossed over Penuel the sun rose on him, and he limped on his hip. 32 Therefore to this day the children of Israel do not eat the muscle that shrank, which is on the hip socket, because He touched the socket of Jacob's hip in the muscle that shrank.
  12. 12. FATHER HELP ME TO LOCATE MYSELF We don't like being alone so we complain, I am alone even our lord Jesus was alone If you don't make time to be alone God would create circumstances to be alone It's the time to hear yourself think
  13. 13. WHAT IS YOUR NAME In other words I cannot bless you until you know who what and where you are You can't overcome what you don't confront
  14. 14. WHAT IS YOUR NAME You can’t conquer what you don’t confront and you can’t confront what you don’t identify. It's not the answer but the right question
  15. 15. THE PROCESS First you need to know where we are. Next we need to know where we are going After that we need to know who we need to be to get there!
  16. 16. THE PROCESS Same for the church Same for the nation Same for the individual Same for business
  17. 17. THE PROCESS WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS NOT HUMAN DOERS WHO DO I NEED TO BE TO GET THERE
  18. 18. CHANGES ADJUSTMENTS DISCIPLINES I NEED TO MAKE TO GET THERE Jacob got there limping, what brought him there could not get him there We don't want anyone to know where we are, (for instance single parents in church so missed out on the help)
  19. 19. LORD I DON'T MIND IF I LIMP FROM HERE ON Help me to humble myself rather than humble me because if God humbles you HE will embarrass you. Locating your self is not rehashing your past its locating where you are relative to where you should be.
  20. 20. OTHER EXAMPLES OF THE NEED TO CHANGE BEFORE WE GET THERE Elisha what brought you here won't take you tree The first time he wanted to go home and hug his parents second time he didn't move or give Elijah a moment
  21. 21. ELISHA FOLLOWS ELIJAH 1 Kings 19:19-21 (NKJV) 19 So he departed from there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him. 20 And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah, and said, “Please let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.”
  22. 22. ELISHA FOLLOWS ELIJAH 1 Kings 19:19-21 (NKJV) And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?” 21 So Elisha turned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen and slaughtered them and boiled their flesh, using the oxen's equipment, and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he arose and followed Elijah, and became his servant.
  23. 23. ELIJAH ASCENDS TO HEAVEN 2 Kings 2:1-15 (NKJV) 1 And it came to pass, when the Lord was about to take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal. 2 Then Elijah said to Elisha, “Stay here, please, for the Lord has sent me on to Bethel.” But Elisha said, “ As the Lord lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you!” So they went down to Bethel.
  24. 24. CUT OF SIN BY SHOWING MERCY Daniel 4:27 (NKJV) Therefore, O king, let my advice be acceptable to you; break off your sins by being righteous, and your iniquities by showing mercy to the poor. Perhaps there may be a lengthening of your prosperity.
  25. 25. CUT OF SIN BY SHOWING MERCY Daniel 4:27 (KJV) Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity
  26. 26. FROM BELIEVE TO KNOW WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? Hosea 4:6 (NKJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God,I also will forget your children.
  27. 27. FROM BELIEVE TO KNOW WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? This is not just knowledge about God but Knowledge of how God works I want to know how you want to work in my life Your specific strategy and pathway for me
  28. 28. ENTER THIS FROM THE 21ST HABIT THE ROOT IF ALL THE OTHERS DEPARTING FROM GODS PATHWAY
  29. 29. Instead of God Obsession
  30. 30. Instead of God Obsession
  31. 31. ASK YOURSELF: When are you under time pressure? Or in a hurry? Or doing something that you have been told is important? Or have people depending upon you?
  32. 32. “WHAT AM I DOING?” AND, “WHY AM I DOING THIS?” Ask yourself, “Am I achieving a task— and forgetting my organization’s mission?” Are you making money to support your family—and forgetting the family that you are trying to support?
  33. 33. “WHAT AM I DOING?” AND, “WHY AM I DOING THIS?” Are you on time to deliver a sermon to your staff—and forgetting to practice what you’re preaching? After all this effort and display of professional prowess, you don’t want to find yourself at a dead end, asking, “What have I done?”
  34. 34. The 3 Laws of Balance Andy starts off by drawing parallels between physical balance and financial balance. He states that the 3 laws are: 1. Have a reference point 2. Make constant corrections 3. And have a clear objective
  35. 35. Breaking These Laws One important point that Andy makes is that if you break any of these laws while physically trying to balance, you’ll experience immediate consequences, but in finances the consequences can be avoided for years.
  36. 36. STOP AND EVALUATE OUR LIVES Why we are struggling to get to the top of the ladder and discover that its leaning on the wrong wall Rush to marry an unbeliever leads to the devil as your father in law God is your father the devil is the spouses father
  37. 37. SHORT TERM DECISIONS THAT HAVE LONG TERM CONSEQUENCES Help me to think ahead ITS NOT ABOUT MAKING MISTAKES IT'S ABOUT NOT BEING PARALYZED BY THE FEAR OF MISTAKES IT'S ABOUT RECALIBRATING YOUR LIFE BY GO
  38. 38. THE GREAT WESTERN DISEASE LIES IN THE PHRASE, I will be happy when . . . As in, I will be happy when I get that promotion, or I will be happy when I buy that house, or I will be happy when I get that money. The wise old you has finally realized that the next promotion, the next achievement, the next move to a larger house or a more attractive corner office won’t really change your world that much.
