The Progression of Paying the Price:

  • God will give you a dream
  • You’ll discover the price to pay
  • You need to decide if you’ll pay the price


The bigger the dream, the bigger the price! Big dreams, big prices, small dreams, small prices.


Quote on Paying the Price

“Pay now, play later or play now and pay later, either way, you will pay” -Maxwell’s Dad

We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment. Jim Rohn

Proverbs 13:19 It is pleasant to see dreams come true, but fools refuse to turn from evil to attain them.

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment. Jim Rohn

If you want something bad enough you’ll get it, and if you don’t get it then you really didn’t want it in the first place. -Proverb

Review from Episode #143: 

  1. The Price of Following God
  2. The Price of Intentionality
  3. The Price of Showing Up when You Don’t Feel Like It
  4. The Price of Consistency and Faithfulness
  5. The Price of Teachability and Humility
  6. The Price of Responsibility

The Price of Serving Someone Else’s Dream

10 “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. 11 And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? 12 And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own? Luke 16:10-12

Can you be faithful serving someone else’s dream? If not, you won’t get your own.


The Price of Delivering the Goods

The 57 Rules fo Success:

  1. Deliver the Goods
  2. The other 56 don’t matter



34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant was tending his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and took a lamb from the flock, 35 I went out after him and [a]attacked him, and rescued it from his mouth; and when he rose up against me, I seized him by his beard and [b]struck him and killed him. 36 Your servant has [c]killed both the lion and the bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, since he has taunted the armies of the living God.” -I Samuel 17:34-36

The Price of Intentional Relationships


You will be the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Who are you spending time with?

You’re either spending time with subtractors and dividers or adders or multipliers!

Would you be honored if you were the average of the people you find yourself in rooms with?




If you want high quality relationships, become a high quality person!

The Price of Networking

The Price of Time & Sacrafice of Leisure

Proverbs 13:19 It is pleasant to see dreams come true, but fools refuse to turn from evil to attain them.
