Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. (1 Tim. 6:17-18)

Real life examples of focused thinking

People who have accomplished great things in business, athletics, ministry, and life in general are always focused on one great, big idea. Here's a quick list of examples:
  1. Bill Gates - operating system and software applications for PC
  2. Michael Jordan - basketball
  3. Steve Jobs - incredible computers (Mac) and electronic accessories (iPod, iPhone, etc.)
  4. Rick Warren - purpose-driven life
  5. Tiger Woods - golf
  6. Warren Buffet - business investing
  7. Joel Osteen - best life now
  8. Robert Allen - nothing down real estate
  9. Lance Armstrong - cycling/Tour de France
  10. Phil Town - Rule #1 investing (don't lose money!)
  11. Dave Ramsey - debt free
The power of focus on one great idea can:
  1. help people who are hurting
  2. change lives
  3. turn the business world upside down
  4. impact history
  5. revolutionize churches
  6. drive the future of technology and innovation
  7. create incredible wealth
So let me ask you this: do you have one great, big idea inside of you that can change lives and revolutionize today's world? If so, it's your time to unleash it!

  1. I know Dave Ramsey is really into being debt free, but what's so great about that if you live on a subsistence income?

    You're not going to win with money on that sort of income, and you're also not going to be able to save 15 percent of your money for retirement.
