Love and Support

Luke 6:31 says to treat others the way you want to be treated. How often I wish people would heed these words of Jesus. I have some amazing people in my life. But I also have some people who really tear me apart. This week I’ve learned that the people who tear me apart are also my teachers. I have learned a lot from them! The biggest thing I’ve learned is that it is incredibly important to treat others the way you want to be treated. But I’ve also learned, or rather realized, that you don’t give up on people! It is known by you already, if you follow me, that I am an Associate with Max International. This week I started reading the book “Building an Empire” by Brian Carruthers. This morning I read chapter 4 in this book. One of the things this book talks about is how to be a great sponsor. The biggest thing I got out of it was to be a great sponsor you have to inspire others to go after their dreams. One thing you don’t do EVER is to speak negatively or disbelieving to your downline. This is something that also applies to our lives in general. If you want to have a friend, you have to be a friend. You don’t speak negatively or disbelieving to your friends. There may be times that you have to tell someone that they need to make suggestions to your friends, but this can be done nicely without tearing them apart. This policy also applies to family.  It boils down to believing and having faith in people. If you have faith in people you will look for the best in them. Sometimes it can be hard to see the best in people, but it is so worth it! I have several new friends. Some of them have little to no support in their lives. Not even in their families. That is sad and I know first-hand how bad it hurts to not have your family believe in you. You may be the only person in your friend’s life that believes in them. Or in other words, and I say this because it is known that I am a Christian, you may be the only Jesus your friend ever meets. Jesus was grew in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God & man (Luke 2:52). If He grew in favor with God & man,  that shows that He was kind. I strive to be the best friend I can to people. I am always looking for the good in people.  I learned years ago that if you choose to see the positive in people and they see this, then you will attract positive people. You attract the kind of person you are. Do you want to attract positive people, then be positive. You may be the person that takes a negative person and inspires them to be a positive person. So my point in this is this:

  1. Treat people the way you want to be treated.
  2. Be kind! You may be the only friend that person may have.
  3. Look for the positive in everyone you meet. It will pay off in the end.

Have a blessed week.

"7 Basic Fears" by Napoleon Hill

Very thought provoking. What are you afraid of?

together we can change ourself

“7 Basic Fears”
by Napoleon Hill

Fear can be both a blessing and a curse, depending upon how and when one yields to it or rejects it.

The fear of failure can attract the causes of failure, and the fear of defeat is an open invitation for defeat. Fear is so powerful that it can do as much damage as its opposite-faith-can do good. As a matter of fact fear is nothing but faith in reverse gear.

There are seven basic fears which hold many people in bondage throughout their lives. No great and enduring success can be achieved by anyone until he has mastered all seven.

Fear of poverty: This fear is harbored by people who allow their minds to dwell on the circumstances and things they do not want. All thoughts have the habit of attracting to one the things one thinks about. This explains why one must…

Are you ready?

This morning I was reading in the bible Joshua chapter 3. Verse 5 caught my attention. It says “Joshua said to the people: Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.”  If you were told to get ready to move in 24 hours, could you be ready? What would you need to do? For me, I’m not sure I could be ready. In fact, I know I couldn’t be. Not without some help! But that is where God comes in. As I was reading in that chapter this morning Joshua was the leader and had been told that the Lord was going to do a miracle the next day. As I read that chapter I learn that the Jordan River was at flood stage when this happens. But we also learn that the priests go first into the river. That is what Jesus does. And if we allow Him to Jesus will go first for us in our lives. That includes our businesses! WOW! You may be facing a flood in your life. But if you give Jesus first place in your life, then He will go into the flood for you. What an amazing priest! Just something to think about.

From Meditation to Prosperity!

Joshua 1: 7-9 says “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.  This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.  Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” This passage tells how to be successful. If you meditate on God’s Word, God promises in this passage that you WILL BE SUCCESSFUL in versse 8. So many of my friends keep on saying they want to be successful in their lives. And no doubt they mean it! But let me ask you this: what are you doing to be successful? The bible talks about being successful. It tells what to do to be successful. But how many of us are doing what it says? Meditating on God’s Word day and night is not as hard as we make it out to be. We can worry and be stressed out day & night. Well, I learned from Andrew Wommack that worrying is meditating! Webster’s 1828 dictionary defines meditate this way “To think on; to revolve in the mind.” I think of it this way: a revolving door simply goes around and around constatly. Our minds do the same thing! What are you thinking on constatly? The concerns of your life? Or God’s Word? If you are focusing on God’s Word then God promises to make your way prosperous! What seeds are you planting in your mind? Seeds of worry, discontent, and the like? Or Seeds of success, wellness, and things like that? When a seed is planted in the ground and fed and watered it will grow! But what will it grow into? Our minds are the same way. What we meditate on is what we will receive! I am meditating on things related to success and wellness! And because of that I am already healthy and successful! Not everyone has seen it, but in time that will change. I’m not concerned in the least with what most people think! I have a few people (5 to be exact) that I am concerned with what they say. At the top of this list is Jesus Christ! The other 4 know who they are and I am not going to name them. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: you are like the 5 people you spend the most time with! This is not my saying, but is something I learned in 2014. Who are you listening to? What are you thinking about? If who you are listening to and what you are thinking about does not reflect what you want to see in 2015, then you will not be successful! I don’t like to be harsh, but some of you need to really think about what you are meditating on! You say you want to be successful. You say you want to lose that 10-100 pounds. But what are you doing to make that a reality? It starts in your mind! In 2013 I made up my mind that I was going to reach Diamond in Max International and that nothing was going to stop me! Proverbs 23:7 says “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” What are you thinking about?
