The Power of Association

General Colin Powell wrote this about the power of association, “The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity” Its a fact! I have a different revelation to this though. I want to share the same quote wearing my appreciative inquiry glasses “The more you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you celebrate excellence in others, it increases your excellence” One of the greatest lessons I have learnt in life is that between you and your next level of success is a person – just get the right connection and you will go to the next level. Today I was reflecting on the impact that Jesus had on his disciples:

“When the Council saw the boldness of Peter and John and could see that they were obviously uneducated non- professionals, they were amazed and realized what being with Jesus had done for them!”

These simple man became overnight celebrities based on a simple qualification – “they had been with Jesus”. Their association with Jesus was a game changer. It gave their gloomy, inglorious lives an EXTREME MAKEOVER…overnight. This is the power of association. Here are some nuggets to chew over the weekend:

1. Your alignment determines your assignment
2. Your position determines your possession
3. Who you see determines who sees you
4. Perception influences acceleration
5. Your network determines your networth

If I had time I would share about how an orphan called Lot became so rich, just by being with Abraham …the power of association!
