There is a right way to high success. You must work underground for as long as is necessary. Resistance is helpful. Humility is not a hinderance. Foundation is everything. To grow slowly is to grow permanently.
The good guy can be attacked relentlessly, and bludgeoned in most of his battles, but still win the war for his destiny – without compromising values and without losing his family or his own soul in the process.
Up until now, I’ve promoted theories about trusting God to promote you when the time is perfect. Sometimes, I doubted these theories.
But, today my theories are proven true for everyone. I’ve been invited to the big table!
This is an announcement for people with long lingering dreams. You want to change the world, but your time never seems to come. Trust me, your time will come. “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” (Galatians 6:9 NLT)
The Announcement: It is official. I’m speaking for Pastor Matthew Barnett and The LA Dream Center at Angelus Temple in LA California on March 6, 2014!
Since its construction in 1923, Angelus Temple has been one of the most influential churches in the world.
Angelus Temple was constructed under the leadership of Aimee Semple McPherson, founder of the Foursquare denomination. The cornerstone of the building bears the inscription ‘Dedicated unto the cause of inter-denominational and worldwide evangelism’. It was the largest construction of its time in North America rising “125 feet from the main floor.” A panorama of clouds, which was the work of artist Anne Henneke, adorns the ceiling, and the temple has eight stained glass window depicting the life of Jesus Christ, created by artist George Haskins.

Recognized Speakers At Angelus Temple
Today, Angelus Temple is one of the largest and fastest growing churches in America, pastored by Matthew Barnett, founder of The Dream Center International.
Angelus Temple regularly hosts recognized speakers, singers, and performers like Joyce Meyer, Bishop TD Jakes, Steven Furtick, Tommy Barnett, John Bevere, Israel Houghton, Tye Tribbett, and Hillsong United.
My invitation to speak at Angelus Temple is an honor too big for words.
I won’t take it for granted.
On March 6, with God’s help, I will deliver one of the greatest Christian messages ever heard!

Thoughts From My Book, Make Me A Legend
Several years ago, I envisioned myself standing tall on a gigantic international platform, giving a fresh start to millions worldwide. Instead of being there, I was actually awakening to the reality of another average day—all alone on my back yard patio, still typing out my no-name heart, wondering if anyone would even want to read this book by the time it was finally finished.
I knew I was carrying a right-now message, and I feared my topics might not even be relevant if it took much longer to complete. No matter how many focused hours I dedicated to this task and others, time had become my enemy!
I felt like a slow-motion person in a fast-forward world!
Do not be fooled by a fairy tale and undervalue the decades of hard work and dedication overnight success requires. Even though I am one of the most impatient people ever, I am constantly asking God to pull me back when I get too far out in front of His plan.
I will never despise my day of small beginnings—my hunk of junk cars and busted out windows. It might have been nice to grow faster, but God’s timing really has been perfect! So, here it is: “If it [the fulfillment of your vision] seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed” (Hab. 2:3b).
Be encouraged my dear friends. Build your foundation. Trust God completely. And your time will come.
