We MUST read God’s Word!

As a leader and child of God, it is our duty and privilege to read the Bible.  Practice reading God’s word daily.  As you mediate and live by the principles written therein, you will stay on the right path and have good success.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

Psalm 119:105 ESV

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Joshua 1:8 ESV

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful 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.

Although we know we should read the Word of God, too many times other things seem to get in the way of this most important area of our lives!  I had good intentions but it seemed I just couldn’t fit reading the Bible into my daily schedule.  I had too much to do and my intentions to read never came about!

Finally I realized that I can never be the person I want to be, if I don’t read the Bible and pray daily!  After all, I claim to be a Christian.  How could I become all God wants me to be if  I’m not allowing the Holy Spirit to teach me?  Now I have a morning routine that keeps me on track for the rest of the day.  If you struggle finding time to read the Word of God, make it a priority and set a schedule to read and pray.  Allow the Holy Spirit to  draw you to read His word.  Start with small chunks of time, and soon you will realize how precious and exciting it is to read God’s word and hear from Him.  Your days will go much smoother and your relationship with the Father will grow.

Our Source For Leadership

When God created the heavens and the earth and the seas, and all that in them it is. He created the fish from the sea, the trees, plants and animals from the earth, the stars from the heavens.

Genesis 1: 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Then he created man from Himself!
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

He said let us make man in our own image, after our likeness. One of our purposes for existing, is to have dominion over the earth. He has giving us creative abilities and power to rule and reign over the earth.  But our source to become a great leader, comes from our servanthood! Jesus came to serve. The more people you serve, the greater leader you will become.

If you want to be a great leader go to your source, our Heavenly Father. He gave each of us talents and gifts to serve one another. Use your God given ability to serve as many people as you can through your gifts and talents, and you will grow to become the greatest leader you could ever hope to be.

Success Sales Tip

sayHave you ever been around someone, and all they would talk about was THEIR business which sounded like a bunch of chatter, and It seemed like all they wanted was to sell you something? If you really want to make a sell, It’s not what you SAY about your business, but it’s what you really BELIEVE about your business, and how passionate you are about it. That is what I call confidence and trust in selling! Believe and be Passionate. If you don’t believe in your product or service, chances are you won’t get very far.

Tips to Conquer – Focus Tip

FOCUS TIP

Use A Timer!

Whenever I want to stop letting my mind wander and really get things done, I use a timer!  Using a timer is a great way to stay Focused on the task at hand.

  1. First decide!  Make a decision what is the most important thing to be done and decide you are going to dedicate a certain amount of time to the project immediately and allow NO distractions.
  2. Make a list of all things you would like to do today and decide what time you will do them.  It’s OK if you decide to do something else first that is on your list, but make certain you do the most important thing of the day, first.  As you think of more things, just add them to the list and know you will get to them.  Feel good that you wrote them down.
  3. Set the timer for an allotted time.
  4. Use small amounts of time, this helps you stay focused and work faster, knowing the timer is going to go off.
  5. Try to beat the clock unless you are working on thought provoking projects.  When I use a timer I am so much faster and more motivated.
  6. Don’t try to work on something you dread without taking a break.  Taking a break will help refresh you.  ENJOY the break.  Use self talk during the break and remember why you are working on the project,
  7. Use a timer for the break and don’t go over!
  8. After the break, back to work on the project or go to the next one.

timers

There are many timers available on the market today.  I have these three that I really like.  One is a timer that has 5 different buttons that I can set a certain amount of time to.  It also has a recorder on it, so if I want to motivate myself, I can record something to remind me of why I am doing a project or remind myself of the how the day will look at the end, as I pictured in the first place.

The second one I have is a digital.  I like it better than the egg timers, because I can check seconds, and minutes easier.

The third one has a string so you can wear around your neck, if you don’t want to mess with going back to the timer to reset it.

Want to stay focused and get more done?  Use a timer!

Highly Productive!

I am determined to be HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE!  The alternative is weak.

A successful entrepreneur or business professional, requires you to be a highly productive person.  I admit there are many times during the day, my thoughts tend to wonder.  That’s why I have to draw my attention back to my purpose for being. 

In order to be highly productive, I have to plan, then FOCUS on each action step.  As a prerequisite, I have to avoid distractions.  That my friend takes determination! 

There is no alternative to success and peace of mind; until you make right decisions you will continue making the same mistakes.  

As you purpose to be highly productive, everything around you AND inside of you will change;  your dreams will actually start forming, and eventually BE a reality, right before your eyes! 

Have a Highly Productive day!!

Wisdom

My prayer this morning was, Lord don’t let me die in my ways, but let me LIVE in yours. God’s ways are not our ways. His ways are much higher and better than ours. Proverbs 3:13-15 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
The True Wealth:
13 Happy are those who find wisdom,
and those who get understanding,
14 for her income is better than silver,
and her revenue better than gold.
15 She is more precious than jewels,
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
In every business manner, in our relationships, in our finances, in every decision we make, we need GODLY wisdom. When I go to God in prayer, He gives me His wisdom. It’s a mystery, its’ wonderful! 1 Corinthians 2:6-8 (NIV)
God’s Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit:
6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
STOP, right now, and ask God to give you wisdom. Throughout the day, pay attention to your thought life and use GODLY wisdom in your decisions. Your life, your business, your finances, and your relationships will prosper. You will have joy and peace that you can’t even explain, and God will receive glory! Choose to be wise.
