#082: The Four Cornerstones For Strategic Living [Podcast]


The 4 Cornerstones

Just as a home or other building is constructed on a foundation, so our lives must be built on a proper foundation. As the foundation goes, so goes that which is built on it! In some parts of the world today, they still use a building method involving cornerstones. A cornerstone is a foundational anchor.

In this episode, I want to share with you the Four Cornerstones each person must have in order to live their lives successfully and strategically!

4 Cornerstones For Strategic Living:

1. Personal Healing:

  • Identify broken places in our lives
  • Identify limiting beliefs
  • Bring brokenness to light so God can heal
  • Confess faults and learn the value of authenticity
  • Receive the Father’s love
  • Know we are accepted by and approved of by Him

2. Personal Discovery:

  • Who am I? Why am I here?
  • Identity
  • Talents, skills, abilities
  • Personality styles
  • Passions & dreams
  • Convergence

3. Personal Development:

  • Self-improvement
  • Audio programs
  • Reading books (or audio books!)
  • Training/Development

4. Personal Deployment:

  • During the journey, you must step into your new season.
  • Preparation is useless if you never engage the purpose for which you have prepared!
  • Leave your comfort zone; wander into unknown territory.

Closing Thoughts:

As we live and grow, we are constantly going through the cycles of these four cornerstones. Every level requires a greater level of healing, a greater level of discovery, a greater level of development, and that we are activated for the new place of assignment!

What stage are you in? God knows the plans He has for you (Jer 29:11)…let’s engage them!
