#167: An Introduction To Building A Strategic Life


Strategic Living

I’m so excited to begin a new format on our podcast, starting with this episode. We’re going to be giving you some of our prime content and enter into what I call “training mode”, giving you more of what we share when we travel with our message all over the world.

Today, I’m going to be giving you the introduction to my 4 Cornerstones For Strategic Living, and what it means for you to begin building your strategic life.

The Gist:

Most people seem to be living their lives on autopilot, and struggle to live intentionally. It seems there is a general consensus of a lack of joy, lack of fulfillment, and lack of purpose.

What About You?

  • Are you struggling with your current situation?
  • Do you want to know where you’re heading and how you’re going to get there?


  • Don’t just make a living. Make a life, and leave a legacy.
  • Pursue strategic living.
  • Reject the status quo – you can do more!
  • Live your life on purpose.

Planning Ahead:

  • Think through your next steps and what you envision for the next several years.
  • Do you know (and understand) who you are and why you’re here?
  • What is your unique purpose for which you were created?
  • What people group (niche market) are you called to contribute to?

Take Aways:

  • Living strategically  means engaging purposefully in the intentional process of growing, becoming, and actively pursuing the very thing for which you were created.
  • Every area of your life depends on your strategic approach to it.
  • Your success is directly proportionate to your strategic life plan.
  • Start with writing your vision down, and map your strategic plan to achieve it.

Coming Up:

  • How to develop a strategic approach
  • How to formulate a mindset, discipline, and process for creating your strategic life
  • In-depth look at each of the 4 Cornerstones of Strategic Living:
    • Personal Healing
    • Personal Discovery
    • Personal Development
    • Personal Deployment (Destiny Activation)

Closing Thoughts:

  • What life do you want for yourself, and who do you want to go with you?
  • Write down your vision and your goals. Put pen to paper!
  • Decide right now: what do you want from 1) this course and 2) your life as a whole?

1. Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We are launching a brand new, next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …


To apply for membership with the Strategic Influencers Mastermind Group, please click the link below, and you will be directed to an online application. Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
