10 Life Shaping Principles!

Today I got some of the team to write down what have been the top 10 principles that have shaped their life the most. A principle is a life shaping idea that acts as a standard, belief system or value that distinguishes you as a person from someone else.

If you would like to do this exercise follow these instructions:

  • Set aside 20mins to complete this exercise.
  • Brainstorm on paper writing down as many ideas, sayings and principles that come to mind.
  • Select the principles that stand out more than the others
  • Select the 10 principles that have most shaped your life.
  • Identify how many of these principles are biblically based and how many aren’t. 

Here are the top 10 principles that have shaped my life up to this point:

  1. If you want to be a man of God, get up early and read the Bible for an hour and pray for an hour everyday (M.Grechko).
  2. Hear and obey (Jn 10:27)
  3. Lead yourself first before you lead others (1 Tim 3:1-7)
  4. Organise and execute around your top priorities (Eph 5:16)
  5. It’s the little foxes that spoil the vineyard (Song of Songs 2:15)
  6. Love God passionately and love people fervently (Mt 22:37-40)
  7. To whom much has been given, much is required (Lk 12:48)
  8. Do the best you can with what you have right where you are (Ecc 9:10)
  9. Keep the main thing, the main thing
  10. Without vision, people perish (Pr 29:18)

Lead the Change!
