#224: Seeing Beyond The Horizon


Last week, I provided a summary view of my first 50 years of life. For some of you, it was a refresher of the life of Brian Holmes, while for others of you, it was your first look into the journey which brought me to this point. Today, I want to share a bit of a different side of the story.

In today’s episode, we’ll talk about life lessons learned, progress, seeing for the future, making plans, and most importantly, what I’d love for you to consider as you journey into your best season ever!

Episode Summary:

  • Dreaming is the essence of life, planning is a must, but the willingness to constantly work on one’s self and DO those things necessary to realize those dreams is a different story altogether.THIS is what the journey is all about!


  • Every experience (good or bad) offers an opportunity to learn and to grow.
  • Our greatest pain or challenge is often times the building blocks for our greatest contribution or work.
  • God involves Himself in our lives to the degree we invite and allow Him.
  • Every level we attain in life has its upper limitations. Our job is to recognize those and be willing to pursue a new level.
  • Not every relationship will transition with you into the new season.
  • What you are doing today may not be “THE THING” you are ultimately called to do; it may simply be the classroom or laboratory God has you in to make you ready for the thing.
  • What you do is not WHO you are
  • If you are wearing yourself out, your are probably doing something you shouldn’t be doing.
  • If you are striving then you are no longer in rest or faith. If you are no longer in faith, there is no grace to DO the thing you are working to do.
  • Children are a gift from the Lord … and then they are gone!
  • You have ONE chance to raise your children; teach them they are created for greatness; affirm their worth and value; love them; encourage them; launch them.


  • Closer to God than ever before.
  • One with my wife.
  • I am encouraged by what I have experienced in my life so far and recognize there is much more to accomplish.
  • I am more excited today than ever before.
  • I feel I am just getting started.
  • I truly believe my best years are ahead.

Future Vision:

  • Books
  • Coaching and mentoring emerging leaders in all spheres
  • Championing the process of personal healing
  • Building people
  • Creating a worldwide personal/leadership development company
  • Traveling
  • Speaking
  • Training
  • Continuing to grow my relationship with God, my wife, my kids
  • Being healthy, wealthy, and wise … living fully alive
  • Leading people to the Father
  • So much more

Closing Thoughts:

  • What I desire for YOU …
    1. You would be healed and whole
    2. You would know God as your father
    3. You would see the possibilities, and decide to quest after them with all your heart
    4. You would succeed in life by accomplishing everything God created you to do
    5. You would live FULLY ALIVE
    6. You would say YES and commit to your YES
    7. You would experience your very best year ever

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

The new year brings new openings in our 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 …

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.

  1. Thanks Brian for episodes 223 & 224. They really helped unleash some God inspired, action producing epiphanies to me today just when I needed them as I came out of several days of large mood swings from dispair to elation and all around. Blessings pdj
