Access is Everything

One of the reasons I started this blog so many years ago, was simply because I was struck by the incredible power of access. Huh? What ya talkin' 'bout? Well, let me put it this way.
If you have been facing a roadblock in your career, it just may be an issue of access.

You see, relationships bring about access to new realms of influence and information and networking. And of course most of us know that having the best and most accurate information is absolutely essential. "Knowledge is power" as they say....

But what if you just don't know anybody? What if you are isolated and not mingling with anyone in your field of interest? Well, there's no time like the present. Figure out where your ideal network of colleagues hangs out, and go there. Is it really that simple? Yes....it actually is.

When you get there, make sure you know why you are there. Don't just hang out without a purpose.
Successful people always value the imminent power of time. Career minded individuals count their time as more valuable than gold. And no, this doesn't make them cocky, it just makes them efficient and effective. They won't let you into their inner circle if you don't value their time.

Show a little humility. Yes, that "h" word. Folks seem to squirm when I use it. But there is much to be said about the power of a humble heart. By "humble" I merely mean, that you have to have a demeanor that shows that you realize you need what someone else has in order to move ahead. Don't act like you don't need anybody. Don't act like you've got it made in the shade....or no one will spend any time at all with you.
Act like you know what you want, but that you are willing to do as advised to get where you want to be.
Stay teachable. Stay reachable. Keep your cell phone on, even if it's with your last dollar. If folks can't find you, they can't connect you to their network of contacts and colleagues. Access is Everything.

So, in summary, if you feel like you're facing an impenetrable grey brick wall and you don't see any way through it nor over it...it just might be time to meet and greet someone with greater access. Meeting the right person at the right time, may pluck you out of obscurity into the limelight where those walls no longer exist.

Peace and prosperity.

School of Discipleship - One Year to a Radical Life

School of Discipleship - One Year to a Radical Life







Have a year to spare? and aged under 28? Have a love for Jesus that wants to grow?

Maybe it would bless you to check out the School of Discipleship that is hosted by Gospel for Asia ministries.



If you have never heard of Gospel for Asia, it is a group of committed christians who are reaching those who don't know Jesus in Asia. Their approach is refreshingly simple. Their approach to fund raising raises the bar of integrity in standards of  modesty and transparency. They make sure that the funds go 100% to the causes that you have directed your funds toward. They also have a "no frills" flavor to their ministry which is so wonderful.

Folks are tired of giving to ministries that use the funds to live lavishly.



Gospel for Asia missionaries are well prepared to live modestly and on an equal par with the people to whom they are ministering. They ride bikes from village to village and wear the clothing of the local culture.

I am delighted to learn more about Gospel for Asia as time goes on.





Peace in Christ.

The Dream - Gospel for Asia

Are you interested in missions but just can't go?

I encourage you to take the time to listen to K.P. Yohannan's work in India.

His ministry is also very generous in that they will send you a great book to read ABSOLUTELY Free!

K.P.'s life story is very compelling. His ministry to the people of  India is filled with love and devotion to Christ. He teaches his workers to not be afraid of personal sacrifice, and he leads by example.

The link below will lead you to his website where you can watch a video about his work.

Peace and God bless.
