One of my greatest purposes on this amazing ball of humanity is to connect with people around the globe who are pursuing their dreams and desires. These men and women are taking off after heartfelt, life-giving moments that release vision not only for themselves but for others. They are grand influencers.
This week I'm doubling back to have some time with Ian Kilpatrick. In the podcast Heaven Invades Technology from, June 4of this year, Ian and I were discussing a social media creation he created in 2006. It was growing and expanding and had some key values I wanted to come back to as he and his business partners are rebirthing BeenUp2.
I also had a couple questions relating to his process which I believe are God-given. If we listen and respond to these, I believe we too will see the Father pour out kingdom creations that influence the lives of others.
Ian has amazing resilience in that he has started 30 businesses in various fields and endeavors. He once stated that he has started and failed in most of these businesses, and yet what he's taken away from these are lessons that have made him a successful entrepreneur.
He gained two major lessons that I want to share with you on the podcast New Era Explorers. What I love about these lessons is the requirement to ask others for their insights. To be inclusive. To build a team where wisdom once again enters the picture.
Wisdom—it's truly amazing. In my book, Leadership Bites, I wrote these words;
"Wisdom is a powerful tool. I have seen wisdom calm an escalating turbulence in a moment. Wisdom often brings hope to situations that have been without answers or even a future. Men and women who carry wisdom have ways, or find ways, that answer core issues and resolve disputes. This ability, this wisdom seems to go beyond head knowledge, although it involves our experience along with God's ever-beautiful insights."
These two major lessons Ian shared with me apply to any dream or desire you are pursuing. What are you starting right now? What are you considering? Ask yourself if there are people around you to whom you listen. That you will let them in. Ian's lessons are powerful tools to look forward as you set off as a "New Era Explorer."
