Introduction – An Enemy Called Average PDF

Mediocrity is a region bound on the north by compromise, on the south by indecision, on the east by past thinking, and on the west by a lack of vision. I went to bed one night knowing I had a speech to give early the next morning. When I awoke, the first thought on my mind was not “What time is it?” or “What will I wear?” Instead, it was the phrase “an enemy called average.” In that moment before my feet hit the floor, I knew that God had given me the title for the book that had been stirring within me for so long a time. I even called that morning’s speech, “An Enemy Called Average”! This book is written for people who what to quit…so they won’t. And for people who want to go to another level …so they can! Each of us has been given a certain mixture of abilities and opportunities that make us unique. No mixture is insignificant. An Enemy Called Average PDF

Those matchless qualities that God has placed within all of us cause us to yearn to be above average and extraordinary. God led me to write this book in a nugget style in order to deliver as much meat as possible in an enjoyable, easy-to-read format. Because there are fiftytwo nuggets, this book can be used as an excellent weekly devotional or for personal development. In Genesis 3:9, God asks Adam, “Where are you?” He is still asking that question of each of us today. Where are we in regard to God’s plan for our lives? Where are we concerning the gifts and talents He has given us? It is my prayer that as you read this book, you will allow the Holy Spirit to reveal God’s plan for you and to inform, exhort, and correct you so that you will bound past every area of mediocrity and find total fulfillment in your


It is impossible to write a book like this one without the help of “foundational-level” people. Special thanks to: Mike Loomis, who always offers a timely word of encouragement. Tim Redmond, whose insight and advice have been invaluable. Pastor David Blunt, my faithful friend and spiritual connection.
