- An excuse is the skin of a reason justified by a lie.
- Don’t give excuses in life.
Don’t feel compelled to explain why you’re not doing things you know you should or are afraid to do.
- If need be, say “I blew it, I’m sorry, I messed up. I’ll do better.”
That’s not an excuse and you can get right to whatever it is and take care of the challenge.
- One of the most frequent excuses heard is “I’m sorry I’m late,
- Having a cause or purpose greater than yourself, which you can get under, puts you ‘sub’ to that mission.
- Think, plan and find ways to gird up that mission in your life.
Books, tapes, encouragement, associations, and using the power of the spoken word are all ways to help support whatever your mission might be.
- It takes great discipline, courage and love to be in submission to another person.
- Recognize the difference between being sub to the mission and being submissive to a person,
- Everyone needs people to model after.
- Parents are the first models
- Make sure that you’re the best model you can be.

Want the notes?
- Prayer is a communication made between the human being and a superior power, GOD.
- Human beings send prayers to an all-knowing, all-loving God in hope and faith that he’ll answer those prayers.
- Think about: “Does God hear and listen to my prayers?”
- How do you pray?
Standardized prayers, like ‘Our Father’ or free, unstructured prayer
- If prayer hasn’t been natural for you, give it a try.
- Legacy is the habits we transfer from ourselves to others?
Our inner circle is most likely to whom we transfer a legacy habit.
- Knowing that you’re leaving legacy throughout your life, makes you conscious of it, and capable to develop your own legacy.
- What kind of legacy do you want to leave?
What difference/impact are you making?
- Legacy is more than money or property.
- We can’t own legacy: It is formed and transferred to others.
- A dream is a cause or a purpose greater than yourself that you want to fulfill.
(A goal is something you can achieve on your own, a dream is bigger than you.)
- Dream-building is casting the vision for the dream.
- We can dream build in many ways:
-physically visit the dream.
– confess the dream. Use the power of the spoken word.
- Use the 10/10/10 to solidify your dream.
Most impactful lesson was how to have a servant’s heart:

-to go the extra mile
My mentor spent a lot of time teaching, showing and explaining to me by example and then by word.
