What Is An Inner Circle?

What is an Inner Circle 2

Hear the teaching and see the presentation here: https://stme.in/KyEoGmrUS.

An inner circle is a group of very close friends that you look to for support. They come from all walks of life, and each has a specific skill set or set of talents that they bring to the table within your friendship. You, too, have this specific set of strengths that others admire. Within your inner circle of friends, you want to have a wide variety of personalities that will not accept mediocrity but will challenge you to be more than you are today. This is truly what an inner circle is all about.

You naturally gravitate towards those people you admire. It could be that someone has accomplished something you’d like to accomplish. Maybe you admire the level of success they’ve achieved within their personal, social, or business life. You may feel as if they are “higher up” than you, so you look up to them.

These are the people you want to make up your inner circle. Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” So you want those five people (five being a somewhat arbitrary number) to be people who are in a position in life that you’d like to be in as well.

People who have achieved a measure of success in life have learned myriad lessons from their experiences along the way. They have earned wisdom through those experiences. These lessons and wisdom are passed on in inner circles to those who are up-and-coming and need the support, direction, and guidance of someone who has already traveled the road.

If personal growth, ministry or business success is something you desire, surround yourself with people in your inner circle who are emotionally and spiritually at a level that you’d like to achieve. This may mean learning new and different spiritual teachings, or finally dealing with emotional baggage that’s been holding you back. While uncomfortable to deal with, imagine life without that baggage!

If business growth is your goal, search out mentors in the business world who are enjoying a level of success that you think is impossible for you to find. Then let the lessons from these people stretch your limits and help you grow to achieve your own business success. Keep an open mind, and tell your ego to take a vacation while you’re working to learn new lessons and open your mind to new possibilities.

Thanks For Your Patience

thanks for 2

I know it has been a while since I have posted a blog.  Over the past few months a lot has been going on. My father experienced some medical challenges and we had a big family reunion, which I was spear heading. I wasn’t able to post on a regular basis or do any challenges.

I want to thank those of you who prayed for me and my family. Also, I want to thank all for your patience in following my blog. We are more than half way through the year. I am ready now to get started once again with some blog posts on  spiritual and personal growth challenges, as well as, personal, business, and ministry development training.

Please continue to pray for me. I will be humbled and would greatly appreciate it.

The next challenge will be the “Inner Circle” Challenge starting in a week. If you are like me, you are believing God to place or send into your people who are genuine and authentic when it comes to respecting, praying and believing God for your life and success.

Until then, stay encouraged and strong.

Making Every Moment In Life Count

November 17, 2016 Leave a comment

Need to squeeze more time out of each day? I’m going to get right to it…

If you’re like MOST people, you’re wasting the most precious and limited resource you have – your time. Every second the clock ticks away at another moment of your life, and that’s time that you will NEVER get back. You can’t save it, you can’t hoard it, you can’t stash it away to use another day. When it’s gone, it’s gone, and it’s the most valuable thing you’ve ever been given. Fortunately, with just a few simple techniques, you can mine more usable time from your existing supply, and I can show you how.

Watch the training video I did for the Royal Exchange Challenge Year-End 95 Days Challenge on “Making Every Moment in Life Count Time Management Challenge.” During this fun and interactive video training, you’ll learn… How to identify your high productivity and low-energy periods, and maximize both, Your Top 5 Major Time Wasters, and how to overcome them to get back on track, How to maximize your prime energy times to get the necessary things done and have time for the things you WANT to focus on, and The 3 key elements to effective time management.

5 Powerful Morning Habits to Help You Become More Successful

November 8, 2016 Leave a comment

Are you a morning person? Many people enjoy getting up at the sunrise and having a cup of coffee while they browse the web and others prefer to sleep in as long as possible but the most successful people in the world embrace the mornings and in fact there are certain habits that the successful people all seem to share. Here are five powerful habits that will help you become more successful.

1. Get up Early: have you heard the adage early to bed, early to rise? The rest of it is that it makes a man (or woman) healthy, wealthy and wise but in this case it really does make you more successful. If you read about the most successful entrepreneurs out there, you will notice that they get up very early and start their day – and they usually get quite a bit accomplished in the morning as well.
2. Start with Exercise: studies have shown that people who exercise in the morning are5-morning-habits much better equipped to handle the day. You’ll be able to use your brain better, you’ll have more energy and you will simply be better at all of the tasks that you attempt after a half hour or so of exercise. This doesn’t have to be extremely strenuous; it could just be a jog through the park or a bike ride. The important thing is that you exercise.
3. Eat a Good Breakfast: breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you probably know that because experts have been saying it for decades. If you aren’t a breakfast person, you’re not alone. There are lots of people out there who prefer not to eat breakfast and just wait until lunch rolls around. But eating breakfast could help you be more productive and if you try it once you might find that you really enjoy the results.
4. Do the Hardest Thing First: when you get started in the morning don’t go with the easy tasks first. Tackle the hardest project that you have; the one that you’re dreading above all of the others. Once you get that one out of the way, you’ll find that the other projects are easy to accomplish and your day will go much smoother.
5. Prepare the Previous Day: the night before, try to prepare as much as you can so that you’re ready to sit down and get to work as soon as morning comes.

3 Powerful Ways to Recognize an Opportunity

November 8, 2016 Leave a comment

opportunity-knocks

If you want to be a successful entrepreneur one of the things that you’re going to have to do is be able to recognize opportunity when it knocks. An opportunity to fill a much needed gap in the market or to change your business to take advantage of a trend could mean the difference between a little bit of success and a huge amount. But you must know what these opportunities look like so that you can grab them when you see them. Here are three ways to recognize an opportunity.

1.  It Might Not Be Perfect

One of the earmarks of a good opportunity is that it doesn’t sound too good to be true. A true opportunity that has great potential isn’t going to be perfect when you encounter it. You’re going to have to do the work to make it into a successful venture. However, one thing that should have is potential. If you can see it becoming a great idea in the future than it might just be the opportunity that you been looking for but just be sure that just because an idea is imperfect that you don’t discard it completely.

2.  It Is Built on Previous Failures

The best ideas are the ones that have evolved over time because they have been honed through past failures. If an idea has been through the furnace of discovery, there is a much greater chance of it working when you decide to implement it. In other words, you might want to give an idea time to fail a few times before you decide to run with it yourself, because otherwise, you’ll be making all of those mistakes yourself and that won’t result in the grand opportunity the you’re envisioning.

3.  It Might Not Be What It Was Intended to Be Used for Originally

Some of the best ideas that have ever been thought of were completely different takes on what a product or service was originally intended for. The idea might’ve been a failure as it was intended but it sparked an entire new thought process and brand-new applications. These accidental inventions ended up being something completely different because someone had the ability to see past the original application. For example, both the slinky and silly putty toys were intended for industrial application. However, they failed as intended and instead became some of the most popular toys ever invented.

Next Level Nuggets #1- The Right People

October 22, 2013 3 comments

When it’s time to release your potential to the next level there are three things you must consider and protect as you are advancing in your ministry, career, business or community service – The Right People, The Right Place, and The Right Plan.

Here are some next level nuggets on “The Right People.”

    The Right People -You Must Have The Right People Around Your Life

1. You must have like- minded people around you. How can two walk together except they agree on the direction? (Amos 3:1)

2. You must make sure that your vision, potential, and your life are surrounded by the right people. Surround your life with people who won’t mind celebrating you and your success.

3. Those you can speak the vision to. You need to build a team of people around you who are willing to listen to your vision and those who are willing to go the extra mile on your behalf.

4. Those who can speak to the vision. You need mentors in your life who will give your direction and guidance as you grow and advance.

5. Those who are pressing to hear from God. You need people who know how to hear from God and who are willing to cover you in prayer.

6. Be Mindful of the company you keep. They will affect your relationship with God and affect how you complete your assignment.

7. You must make sure that your vision and potential are not surrounded by people who are a detriment to your success. Those who are incompetent and who are not going anywhere in their own lives.

Psalm 1:1,2 – “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”

Be sure to read the next post on “The Right Place.”

This is an excerpt of my upcoming “Understanding Your Calling – Next Level Success Program” launching in January 2014.
