Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 441

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Be Accountable to Someone!

accountability8-p1

Never think you can run this race of life on your own.  Have someone you can be accountable to (& vice versa) for your dreams, goals, aspirations and purpose.  It is wise to have someone in your life who can give you wise counsel but who can also say NO when you are getting ready to make a big ole fat DUMB choice.  If you have trust issues, ask God to send you someone you can be accountable to and who you trust, because YES everyone ISN’T trustworthy.  It can be a mentor, a friend, a relative, a spouse.  It doesn’t matter so long as you have someone you can consult with when you are working to accomplish your goals and live your best life.  Having someone to help guide you through tough decisions, some times helps make it easier to make the decision, especially if it something you have to say NO to.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me, do you have an accountability partner?  Who are you accountable to when you have goals and tough decisions you are trying to accomplish?  How do you hold each other accountable?  If not, ask God to give you someone to be accountable to?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Tenacious Tuesday – Motivational Minute 440

It’s Tenacious Tuesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Keep Going!

Keep-Going

Some days things get so overwhelming that we want to quit and just give up.  But you can’t.  God has given you power, love and sound mind.  He has given you his strength for your weakness.  When you are weak, He is strong.  Know that no weapon formed against you shall prosper.  Just because it’s been formed and launched against you doesn’t mean it will take you out.  It may hurt, it may sting, it may even wear you out, but don’t give up and keep going.  You can and you WILL make it.

YOUR TURN… on this Tenacious Tuesday, tell me, how did you keep going when you wanted to give up and throw in the towel?  Do you feel like giving up now?  What would you need in your life to keep giving?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Mind Over Matter Monday – Motivational Minute 439

It’s Mind Over Matter Monday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Stop Worrying!

000-God-cares-for-you-so-turn-all-your-worries-over-to-him.-1-Peter-5-7-CEV

YES… stop worrying.  The more you worry, the more stressed out you are going to be.  Some things you just can’t control and others wellll… even if you can control them, worrying about it doesn’t make the situation move any faster or get any better.   If you can control it , stop worrying about it and get moving to make the necessary changes.  If not, stop worrying, give it to God and live in the peace and joy He has given you.  As 1 Peter 5:7 (CEV) says, God cares for you, so turn ALL of your worries over to him.

Over the next 40 (well 32 days) I will be participating the 40 Day Surrender Fast (for 40 days you surrender something to God.  It doesn’t have to be food, it can be anything like TV, social media, sugar, shopping, etc. It’s usually something that has been getting in the way of your relationship with God) and I have surrendered worry and doubt.  Because I am a thinker and a planner, I tend to over think things and sometimes worry myself (& my husband) crazy.  Recognizing that I really needed to trust God more and let Him do what He does best in my life, Be GOD, I asked what to surrender and this is what he gave me.  One of the suggestions Dr. Celeste gives as part of the surrender fast, which I’ve done at least 2 or 3 time now, is to meditate on scriptures that reinforce what you are surrendering.  So I would suggest you do the same.

Here are a few scriptures to help you out:

  • 1 Peter 5:7 (CEV): God cares for you, so turn ALL of your worries over to him.
  • Psalm 55:22: Cast your burden on the Lord, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved. (NIV)
  • Philippians 4:6: Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. (CEV)

YOUR TURN… on this Mind Over Matter Monday, tell me, what have you been worrying about? When you find yourself worrying, how do you get past it and stop worrying?  How can you begin to turn all of your worries over to God?  How would that make a difference in your life knowing He’s waiting for you to turn them over instead of carrying them on your own?  Other than the scriptures I listed, are there others you would suggest?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Fearless Friday – Motivational Minute 438

It’s Fearless Friday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Do it ANYWAY!

8228187277_7d748828b3_z

Although it seems impossible, insurmountable and even unfathomable… take the first step and DO IT ANYWAY.  No matter how big it may seem to you or how small it may seem to others, it’s time for you to move into purpose.  The world is waiting on your gift to be shared and your story to be told.  Remember it always seems impossible until it is done.

YOUR TURN… on this Fearless Friday, tell me, what will you DO today?  Enough thinking and contemplating.

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Thankful Thursday – Motivational Minute 437

It’s Thankful Thursday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Give Thanks for Closed Doors!

God-and-motivational-quotes-thoughts

Yesterday I received some not so good news.  I knew that a NO was a possibility so I wasn’t that surprised but the reality of hearing it didn’t sit too well with me.  For a few minutes I started to relish in the closed door, forgetting that this was an opportunity for something better to come my way.

In order for an open door to become available, some times there has to be a closed door.   We’ve heard the saying, “When one door closes, another door opens.”  Many times we spend so much time cursing the closed the door that we forget that the closed door is just what we needed in order for an open door or even an open window to present itself to us.

The next time a door closes, say THANK YOU!  Give God a great BIG Thank You for the open door that is on its way.  Some things aren’t always in our best interest and sometimes rather than give an explanation, God just closes the door.  Trust that all things are working together for your good, even the not-so-good things.

YOUR TURN… on this Thankful Thursday, tell me, what was the last disappointment that took place in your life?  Did you give thanks for that closed door or curse it?  If you cursed it, take a few moments and recant your cursing 🙂 and give thanks for your closed door.  When you think back, was that closed door an opportunity for an even bigger and better door to open for you?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 436

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Listen to your Body — Pay Attention to the signs!

996531_568449499868320_514001622_n

Last night I noticed my throat starting to get a little scratchy and my chest was starting to feel sore.  I had been fine earlier in the day but towards the end of the day, I was feeling the after-effects of teaching in a COLD FREEZING classroom for the past two days and being out in the midst of summer, spring, winter and fall – ALL IN ONE DAY.  Yes, it was 37 degrees in the morning, about 70  degrees in the afternoon and then back to about 50 degrees in the evening.  During the day, it colder in the classroom than it was outside.  In the midst of that I was going about my business and my day.  NOT paying attention to the outward signs.

However, I do listen to my body and I know the inward signs of when I feel a cold trying to latch onto me and that was the feeling I felt last night.  Guess what??? I was right!  I woke up this morning groggy, with a slight cough and a slight headache.  Somehow in the hustle and bustle of the last few days I had not been paying attention or remembered that when I’m moving around a lot, I tend to get sick if I’m not careful.

What about you?  Are there times in your life where you haven’t listened to your body.  When you didn’t rest like your body was tell you and you got sick or run down.  Most times than not, your body will speak very loudly and very clearly and tell you what it needs, you just have to be paying attention to the signs.  Use wisdom, don’t run yourself so ragged that you are now down and out for days or weeks at a time because you didn’t listen to your body nor did you pay attention to the signs.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me, do you listen to your body?  Do you pay attention to the signs it and your environment gives you?  When was the last time you didn’t listen to your body nor pay attention to the signs? What happened?  How long did it take you to recover?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Tenacious Tuesday – Motivational Minute 435

It’s Tenacious Tuesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Go the EXTRA Mile!

s-feb13-product_500x500

A few weeks ago I realized that there were some things that I wanted to accomplish and I decided that in order for me to make them happen, I needed to do things different and I needed to push myself to go the extra mile.  So I started waking up at 5am.  As a work from home mom, my time is very limited with a SUPER-busy two-year old in my home. Therefore, I have to make the most of my work time.  Prior to having my son, I had the freedom to choose when I wanted to get my work done, but now, I have to be intentional about when and how I accomplish my goals.  So rather than doing what I’ve been doing, I decided to change it up a little and challenge myself.  It hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be.  There have been some hiccups but overall I don’t mind waking up at 5am to make my dreams a reality.

What about you?  Is it time for you to go the extra mile? Push yourself! You’ve go what it takes to go to the next level in your life and/or your business.  It’s time to get rid of the excuses and get tenacious with your goals, dreams and aspirations and go the extra mile.

YOUR TURN… on this Tenacious Tuesday, tell me, how will you go the extra mile today?  Have you gone the extra mile in the past?  Did you push past your fears and just make it happen?  Did you get half way and quit?  What happened? How did you feel afterwards?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Mind Over Matter Monday – Motivational Minute 434

It’s Mind Over Matter Monday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… What YOU Feed Grows!

190347521720188350_gMRo7bBH_c

What you feed into your mind grows.  Are you feeding your faith or are you feeding your fears?  A mind filled with fear has NO ROOM for dreams.  The only way to stop worry, doubt, discouragement and fear, is to replace it with faith, the word of God, positive and sefl-affirming thoughts, and massive action.  Some times the best remedy for fear is to move in spite of fear.  The more action you take, the more your fear begins to dissipate.

YOUR TURN… on this Mind Over Matter Monday, tell me, how have you overcome your fears?  Do you have more fear than dreams in your mind.  If so, what’s one thing you can do today to begin to produce more dreams and faith and less fear?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Fearless Friday – Motivational Minute 433

It’s Fearless Friday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Just Jump!

faith-is-taking-the-first-step-even-when-you-dont-see-the-whole-staircase-mlk1

Sometimes you have to just stop thinking and talking about it and just take that leap of faith. The problem with you is that you have been suffering form analysis paralysis and people pleasing. Stop thinking about it and stop basing what you do off of the approval of others. Just because they haven’t tried it doesn’t mean it can’t and won’t be done.

Stop contemplating and just jump. As Martin Luther Kings, Jr once said, “faith is taking the first step when there is not staircase.”

YOUR TURN… on this Fearless Friday, tell me, what area of your life do you need to be more tenacious, vivacious and adventurous? Why haven’t you taken the jump?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…
