Roles & Goals

December 18, 2011

As leaders, we usually think of and dream of personal goals for our future.  Our personal goals, as we view them, are usually within our reach if just work hard enough.  However, when we become Great Commission Visionaries, we have entered into an arena, where personal goals are not good enough.  Until the last five or six years, I was driven to achieve or fuflill personal goals for life and ministry.

When it comes to the Great Commission or to God-sized vision, we need to move from goals to roles if we desire to be reasonably successful.  Let me explain.  I believe one of the biggest differences between big spirited people and small minded people is the specific issue of roles verses goals.  Most people have bought into working hard, making good money and retiring early.  There is nothing wrong in essence with what I just written.  However, the Great Commission Visionary or God-Sized Vision requires for us to find our role in God’s goal.  When I learned this, this concept set me free.

Today, I do not strive to fulfill a goal but fill a role.  I am have a part in God’s heart and a role in His goal.  With this in mind, networking is more about role-setting than goal-setting.  At the Billion Soul Network ( we seek to find great, fellow visionaries, who wish to be deposits instead of withdrawls, CoChairs instead of Chairs, fill roles instead of goals and who believe that together we can achieve more than by ourselves.
