Determined!

There is a saying that I love! “I am too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated!” And its true! If you are positive then you don’t have time to doubt. If you are optimistic then there is no room for fear. And if you are determined then there is no room for defeat! One policy I have adopted is that I don’t have a plan B when it comes to the goals I’ve set for myself. I did this because I didn’t want to give myself any reason to not succeed at the goals I’ve set for myself. So I have a question for you, what excuses are you giving yourself to not reach your goals? How determined are you to reach the goals you have set? For that matter, have you set goals for yourself for the next 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 3 years and 5 years? This year is half way over. Where do you see yourself in 3 months? Do you have a goal set? If not you really should set some goals. Setting goals are easy! What do you want? Set a date to it! That makes it a goal! For more information and encouragement on setting goals I encourage you to look at one of my favorite websites: http://worldsgreatestmentors.com. I have also today joined an amazing sisterhood called “National Association of Christian Women Entrepreneurs.” If you are a woman and have your own business you should look at this organization. The website is http://nacwe.org. It is amazing! Have an amazing day! God bless you!

How bad do you want it?

 

 

How bad do you want your dreams to become a  reality? Are you willing to do what it takes? To go after your dreams may be easier than you think! Over the past few months I have been learning from Dr. Reggie Cochran, who is one of the best friends I’ve ever had and my mentor as well. One of the things he has taught me is that if you really want your dreams to become a reality is you have to see it done in your mind before you can ever make them a reality. With the health & nutritional company I work with I am making my dreams a reality. I am working hard to see my dreams become a reality. One of the things that Reggie has taught me is to do something called visualization. With this exercise you are essentially daydreaming. But you go further than just dreaming. For example, maybe you want to visit Australia. So what you will do is imagine what will you see when you visit it. Do you want to see the Sydney Opera House? You imagine yourself in it. What will you hear? What will you see? Get as specific as you can! Another thing you can do is make a dream board. This is an extremely simple project to do. Simply take a piece of posterboard and take pictures from a magazine that put a picture to what you want in your dreams. And you simply glue it on. You can also go after your dreams by deciding what you want to do and then starting from what you want work backward to decide what it will take to make it a reality. This technique works incredibly well for dreams that are harder to put a picture to. Such as being a blessing to other people. I have learned that these are actually some of the best dreams you can have! Recently I told Reggie that my “why” for the company I work with is that I want to be a blessing to as many people as I can. The reason behind this is simple. Many people over the years have blessed me and never asked for anything in return. So now I want to pay them back by blessing others. Praying that God blesses you as you put the steps in motion to make your dreams a reality. Image

 

 

Love Walk

In the New Century Version 1 Corithians 13 says “I may speak in different languagesof people or even angels. But if I do not have love, I am only a noisy bell or a crashing cymbal. I may have the gift of prophecy. I may understand all the secret things of God and have all knowledge, and I may have faith so great I can move mountains. But even with all these things, if I do not have love, then I am nothing. I may give away everything I have, and I may even give my body as an offering to be burned. But I gain nothing if I do not have love.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, is not selfish, and does not get upset with others. Love does not count up wrongs that have been done. Love takes no pleasure in evil but rejoices over the truth. Love patiently accepts all things. It always trusts, always hopes, and always endures.

Love never ends. There are gifts of prophecy, but they will be ended. There are gifts of speaking in different languages, but those gifts will stop. There is the gift of knowledge, but it will come to an end. The reason is that our knowledge and our ability to prophesy are not perfect. 10 But when perfection comes, the things that are not perfect will end. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I stopped those childish ways. 12 It is the same with us. Now we see a dim reflection, as if we were looking into a mirror, but then we shall see clearly. Now I know only a part, but then I will know fully, as God has known me. 13 So these three things continue forever: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love.” I feel in my spirit that the Lord Jesus is doing a new thing in many of you as well as myself when it comes to walking in love. Many of you are living  a life where you do not feel like anyone cares. I can tell you from my heart that there are at least 2 people who love you. Myself and Jesus. You are loved beloved. I may not know you personally. But in Jesus that makes no difference. Walk in love and you will be loved in returned. Jesus showed love to the unloved. He is love. So walk in love and see what Jesus does through you to those around you.
