Building fulfilling relationships in your personal life and for your vision requires that you understand 3 core values that most healthy and prosperous people keep.
- Healthy people want to feel like they are part of something larger than themselves. Something epic.
- Healthy individuals want to feel like their contribution is significant and is appreciated.
- People expect to see results from the time they have spent investing in the vision. Depending on what kind of team this is, it will vary.
Here are 4 significant sabotages that will prevent you from building with people that will equip you to grow prosperously.
- Allowing deep heart disappointments with spouses, friends, and business or ministry partnerships to keep you from trusting people and trying new ideas. Here’s the truth, anyone with a call to transform other people’s lives has been rejected, persecuted or misunderstood. You also must be willing to listen to new ideas from team members, trust and be willing to risk failing without fear.
- Playing it safe by not surrounding yourself with individuals who are going to challenge you to play a bigger game in life. Rather than purpose to build with people or teams that are going to cause you to redefine yourself through accountability or being held to deadlines and results, you choose to build with people that are going to stroke and keep you dependent on their affirmation.
- Focusing on helping/enabling people that are not taking ownership for their own growth. It distracts you from building influence and results in the sphere of authority that God has called you to. If you want to help these individuals make sure to block your time well and not let it distract you from your vision. Here’s how you can tell if people are taking ownership. They take instant action towards resolving pain rather than just talking and praying about it.
- Being conformed to other people’s expectations of your life and vision. Being activated to transform lives requires that you stay focused building new identities and taking new territory. When you redefine yourself and other people’s lives, it can threaten those around you who are not prepared to grow themselves. You have to be willing to let these individuals detach from you.
Your Mission If You Choose To Accept It?
1.Assume God is going to send you opportunities for new success. Be willing to make new friends, risk and try out of the box ideas.
2. When you come in contact with people who challenge you, listen deeply and take immediate action. Communicate with them quickly and share the results you received so they know you are committed to your success and the success of the team.
3. Pray and decide what you are really responsible for building. You can only chase one rabbit at a time and it needs to be the rabbit God has called you to pursue. If you serve in other organizations, block your time well so you don’t dilute your own results.
4. Remind people who you feel like might be sabotaging your efforts of how important they are to you and invite them along on your journey. If they decline, do not talk them into accompanying you and do not let that distract you from your goals.
