"One can chase a thousand and two can put ten thousand to flight." ~ Deuteronomy 32:30
I feel very inspired right now. Recently we launched a Christian Entrepreneur Boot Camp with some incredible leaders and entrepreneurs. The long-term potential of this program is even greater than I realized when God first gave us the idea to do it. My eyes are really being opened to what God wants to do through Kingdom Business U. For a long time I have been searching for a business model that had a large capacity and expansion potential to reach entrepreneurs around the world with Biblical and practical strategies to fulfill their purpose and grow their businesses. What's really exciting to me is that we are in the process of pulling together a very anointed and talented group of individuals to fulfill this vision. Now everything is not just dependent upon my own ideas, talents, capacity, etc. Our team is in position to demonstrate the body of Christ in action in the marketplace. That's how it's supposed to be.
Here are a few of my thoughts in terms of how this relates to the exponential power of cooperation...
Two (or more) minds are often better than just one. Achieving your dreams for you is uplifting, encouraging, and inspirational. However, partnering with others to achieve something unthinkable becomes legendary. As great as your ideas may be, they have the potential to be even much more robust and effective when you are able to combine them with other’s ideas. That’s innovation that makes a difference!
There are enough businesses out there for you to compete with each other. You need to find some entrepreneurs with whom you can complete each other. I call that "coopetition."
I love this quote by Napoleon Hill:
"When TWO or MORE people coordinate in a spirit of HARMONY and work toward a definite OBJECTIVE or PURPOSE, they place themselves in position, through the alliance, to absorb POWER directly from the Great Storehouse of INFINITE INTELLIGENCE."
Of course God is the "Great Storehouse of Infinite Intelligence," for in Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:3). And whether you call it a mastermind group, board of directors, dream team, or something else, there is great power in joining with other great thinkers in the pursuit of something far greater than what you could conquer on your own. "Lone Rangers" will eventually be strangers to success.
If you desire to maximize the potential of your time, talents, money, and ideas, find some people with whom you can cooperatively pursue significant opportunities. Exponential results are awaiting your business!
