Happy New Year! New Decade!

January 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Where did the time go? This past year, 2019, was a trying one emotionally, spiritually and professionally. By the end of 2019 I realized one thing – things can not continue the same way in 2020. So, I made a commitment to myself to “launch out into the deep” for a bigger catch – for greater works!

It has been awhile since I have blogged. I have decided to make blogging one of my continued activities in pursuing greater works in the earth. Writing, speaking, coaching/counseling and teaching are main areas used to get my message across to the masses and for people to experience the gifts and talents entrusted to me by God.

What’s New in 2020?

What’s new in 2020 is my “Greater Commitment” to my divine assignment and calling. I am committed to doing the following:

  • Writing More!
  • Teaching More!
  • Training More!
  • Preaching and Speaking More!
  • Helping More People To Become Certified Life Coaches and Ministers!
  • Just Doing More!

What Are Your Commitments For 2020?

Happy New Year!

We’ve reached the end of our journey. I can’t believe it! I hope this time together has been as enjoyable for you as it’s been for me. More than that, it’s my hope that you now feel you possess the information and tools you need to become a more patient person. We’ve covered a lot over the past month.

We started off our journey by defining patience and talking about why it’s important. Beginning with an understanding of the concept and a strong framework is necessary to continue learning. We then discovered some tangible tools and techniques to put in place in order to begin to demonstrate more patience and to calm down when you’re feeling frustrated.

It was early in our time together that I first introduced the idea that patience is a skill that can be learned. Because it’s so essential to the process, we re-visited the idea toward the end of our 30 days. It’s empowering to know that patience can be learned, practiced and improved upon. You aren’t a bad person or less worthy simply because patience doesn’t come easily to you.

In addition, we learned about some of the things that cause us to feel less patient. Personal triggers are a big problem for some of us. Knowing what triggers you is essential to overcoming it when you feel it happen. Feeling less rushed and more gratitude are also practices that can reduce your tendency to feel impatient.

Finally, we looked at your motivations to want to become more patient. These are all very personal to you. Knowing and acknowledging them can push you to move forward on your journey of learning ways to become more patient. Recognize that this won’t happen overnight. Bring out your list of reasons when you feel like giving up.

Assignment Day 30:

Take a few minutes today to reflect on not only how far you’ve come, but more importantly how this simple 30 day challenge has influenced you and changed you for the better.

What has had the biggest impact on you?

What tips and ideas have you found the most helpful? Those are the posts that you want to go back to again and again.

What positive experiences have you had as a result of the information you’ve gained?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Revive Me Again, O Lord!

Arrow-Heart-Psalm-51-10  

It has been some time since I have written on my blog. This year so far has been one that has required me to focus on others. My dad had some medical challenges at the beginning of the year and I did some traveling with him to make sure he would be okay (not to mention I got a trip out of it). He still has some challenge with getting his blood count number up, but things seem to be going well. If you know of any foods he can eat to bring the number up, please post below. I will be very appreciative for any information that will help him. 

After doctor appointments and several trips (fun trips!), I find myself saying the words that can be found in Psalm 51:10-12, “Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Do not banish me from your presence,  and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you.”

I know my life’s purpose and assignment and my prayer now is to be restore with joy and renewed with a loyal spirit.  I love my family, but it is mid-July and time for me to regroup and refocus on what I am suppose to be doing in the earth. I have a trip planned in September that will bring a “time of refreshing” opportunity so that I can “get myself together!”

Keep me in your prayers as I finish this year strong and on top.

Psalm 51-12

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.

How do you define Inner Circle? Why?

 

 

 

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.

Forgiveness, Why Is It So Difficult? Part 2

Forgiveness_Design2_02

Think of a time when you needed forgiveness for something you thoughtlessly did that hurt another person. How did you feel about how the other person reacted to the transgression? What would have made you understand the action you perpetrated better and help you see how hurtful it was?

Chances are, you reacted to the anger of the other person by making up excuses that it wasn’t really your fault. But, if that same person forgave you in a calm manner, it’s more likely you were better to see the error of your ways and sincerely apologize to the other person.

Resentment and anger can imprison you for the rest of your life and impede your ability to form other relationships. When you forgive (without condoning) you’ll be able to walk away from the prison and let go of the pain that had you locked in to negative feelings and thoughts.

Forgiveness isn’t something that suddenly washes over you when you least expect it. Instead, forgiveness is a process that must be worked through, beginning with a commitment to let nothing stand in your way.

Learn to forgive – be free!
