#138: How To Get The “Ultimate Advantage” In 2015 [Podcast]

What if, in 2015, you could give yourself the “Ultimate Advantage” in every area of your life – faith, physical, emotional, and financial?

HOW TO GET THE

HOW TO GET THE

In today’s episode, I’ll share some foundational elements and practical advice on how to do just that.

Announcements

Here are a couple of immediate advantages you can give yourself in the area of learning, growing, and connections:

In just a few days from now the Platform Conference in Colorado Springs, will be in full swing, starting November 9th. If there are any seats still available, you can still save $100 when you click here and add the special code RAY to your order.  Yes, I am a featured speaker, and I am also a student. I plan to learn as much as anyone while I am there. I hope you will be there with us. As I have mentioned previously, Cliff Ravenscraft and I are hosting a special one-day event the day after the Platform Conference. This is a “Day With Cliff and Ray”, and if you’re going to be in Colorado Springs for the Platform Conference, you should definitely consider joining us for this event.

The applications are piling up for the Private Personal Mastermind Group, led by me, in 2015. I’ve really been surprised by the response to this, as we haven’t really promoted it other than a few casual mentions on the podcast. This will be a small group, and our time together  will be intentional, demanding, and designed to bring you into alignment with your personal destiny. The criteria for membership in the group will be very precise, and the investment will not be exorbitant, but neither will it be cheap. If none of that scares you off, and if in fact you are one of the people who have expressed to me how you wished I would create a group like this, please reach out to me by sending an email to support [@] rayedwards.com.

Tip of the Week:

I’ve been using and enjoying the newly re-designed PocketCasts app. It’s a podcast player for iPhone, iPad, and Android. I find this one to be full-featured, including the all important speed control, as well as visually beautiful. It’s kind of like FlipBoard for podcasts.

Spiritual Foundations: Wisdom For Your Practical Problems

Wisdom equals the Presence Of God. Wisdom is a person…

“God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself.
1 Corinthians 1:30

Whatever your need for wisdom, God has promised to grant your request.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”
James 1:5

This is not poetry or figures of speech, but literal truth:

“The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.”
1 Corinthians 2:14-16

[Tweet “Having the mind of Christ, we have Wisdom, for Christ is Wisdom itself.”]

Feature Presentation: How To Get The “Ultimate Advantage” In 2015

What more could you need, other than the wisdom we were just speaking of, to gain the “ultimate advantage”?

Just because you have access to wisdom doesn’t mean you are using it.

[Tweet “Having access to something is one thing; making use of it is another.”]

I believe there are 5 C’s that can help bring your ultimate advantage in 2015.

  1. Cultivating the increased awareness of, and being more sensitive to, the Presence of God.
  2. Clarifying your purpose, mission, vision and values (these are different things).
  3. Commitment to acting with integrity in each moment, at the point of choice.
  4. Communicating powerfully with intention,  love, and transparency in a way that honors all involved.
  5. Community that is intentionally created. Join a high-quality Mastermind Group (you can inquire about the possibility of joining mine with an email to support [@] rayedwards.com, or if you want to form your own I highly recommend Dan Miller’s product on forming your own.)

  1. Ray, this was an incredible podcast, as they all are. Great ideas for making the most out of 2015! My goal is to get involved in a mastermind to grow my consulting business as well as start one for self-employed grant writers in 2015, so the advice was timely! I am listening to Napolean Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich” right now. Love it!

  2. Fantastic teaching Ray! Applying these 5 C’s will be transformational. For me, I aspire to improve in #4 Communication (especially marketing, as I believe it is simply telling the story of how you can help someone) and #5 Community. A specific goal I will implement for 2015 is to get in a good mastermind group. BTW, as a worship leader/teacher, I especially appreciate/love your insights on worship in this episode.
