Quoting Ed Cole, Tim points out that, “It’s not how fast you
move your feet it’s how big your strides are.”
Tim shares how to find your stride and meaningful purpose and
make a difference right where you are, while you create the life
and impact you desire.
- Focus on the now and where you’re headed, and only spend a
little time on the past.
- Recovery is being healed from the wounds of the past. But if
you’re not careful you will stay in the recovery zone and will miss
your discovery zone.
- Discovery is today. There’s a lot that’s gone on for you to
have a good day today.
- No matter who you are, something new, fresh, and never been
done before can happen in your life.
- The beauty of life is that you never know what can happen just
around the corner.
- The Law of the Harvest: you have to plow the ground, plant the
seed, and water the seed, to reap the harvest. A lot of people
plow, plow, plow and are so plow-minded that they forget that you
need to plant the seed and water the seed, to see the harvest.
- When you learn to sow from just a good place, good things
- A lot of people are dissatisfied because their goals are not
- “He who works his land, shall have abundance...” (Proverbs
12:11a) Your land is what’s in front of you. Whether that’s seventh
grade or working at Taco Bell. Work your land.
- “...but he who chases fantasies, lacks wisdom.” (Proverbs
12:11b) A lot of people are chasing fantasies, so they’re getting
dissatisfied in their jobs too quick, the schooling they just
started, in their exercise program, and who they’re dating or
married. That type of dissatisfaction is more cultural, as in,
“give me a new toy.”
- Divine dissatisfaction is God changing your appetite. All of a
sudden, you don’t have an appetite for the same things anymore,
because He’s moving you into something else.
- God can give you a plan but you have to be willing, and many
times people are not willing.
- Be willing do the things that most people don’t want to
- When you’re obedient in the small things, then life trusts you
in the bigger things.
- It’s just as important to be an amazing mother as it is to be
- Don’t take yourself that seriously.
- Study comedians. Comedians are some of the best speakers
because of their timing.
- Stay in your flow.
- “It’s not how fast you move your feet it’s how big your strides
are.” ~ Ed Cole
- We’ve had problems all over the world from the beginning of
mankind. Any time you have humans, you’re going to have human
- When people change their mindset and they change their motives,
it shifts a culture. If everybody in your city for one week had
good motives, it would change the culture and the climate of that
one city. “When the righteous are raised up, the city is exalted.”
- We are temperature changers. Do it in your home, your school,
your job, and your city, and it may multiply to the world. “Jesus
went around doing good, healing those who were oppressed.” (Acts
