Do it Afraid

Do It Afraid

At the beginning of the year, I had the opportunity to share as one of four guest speakers for a Tele-Event entitled “New Year New You 2014.” My topic was about how to live in and on purpose.  As I prepared for the call, I asked God what He would have me to share with the women on the call and He gave me three points, the first of which was DO IT AFRAID.  I will share the other two in the weeks to come.

I received such awesome feedback that I figured I would share with you in more detail what I shared on the call to help you jumpstart 2014 so you can start living in and on purpose.

When we talk about doing it afraid, it means feel the fear and do it anyway.  So many times we let fear be the very thing that keeps us from the greatness that is waiting for us.  I am here to tell you to STOP IT!  It is time for you to start doing it afraid.

DO NOT let fear be the only factor that determines your decisions.  Do not let fear be the deciding factor for how you pursue purpose.  Remember that What You Feed Expands.  So my question to you is what are you feeding?  Your faith? Or your fear?

If you are feeding your fear, it will continue to expand, but if you are feeding your faith, then that is what will expand.  I believe that we have to get to a place where we intentionally minimize those things that would cause our fear to grow even if that means doing it afraid.  The more you press through fear in to faith and action, the less of an impact it has on you.

There is an infographic I’ve seen numerous times that says “the phrase ‘DO NOT BE AFRAID’ is written in the bible 365 times. That’s a daily reminder from God to live everyday being fearless.”

404047_273837856049110_2005905633_n[1]

If Do Not Be Afraid is listed in the bible 365 times, then that is a hint that maybe, just maybe, you need to start focusing less on your fears and more on what God instructs you to do and that is to NOT BE AFRAID.  Now let’s be realistic here, even I get afraid.  Shoot we all get afraid.  I get nervous.  I over think things.  I even sometimes try to talk myself out of doing certain things until I hear that still small voice tell me DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT… JUST DO IT. That’s when in spite of my fears, my insecurities, my doubts or whatever else I may be feeling or thinking, I do what I’ve been instructed to do.

Is it always easy to do it afraid? NO.  Will you second guess yourself, while doing it afraid?  YES. But will it be worth it? ABSOLUTELY!  Doing what you know in your heart of hearts to do isn’t always easy.  It’s takes guts, it takes passion and it takes drive.  If you spend time feeding your faith, it makes the journey just a little bit easier.  In addition to feeding your faith, you also need to get moving.  Taking massive action minimizes the level of fear you feel as you continue to keep moving.  This is why I say you have to do it afraid.  To DO is a verb, which means you need to be in action, doing something.  

The reason your fear has been so rampant in your mind and your life is because you aren’t doing anything or the things you are doing are feeding your fears instead of your faith.  Just in case you didn’t know FAITH is also a verb and it only works when you work it.  Are you willing to work your faith?  Are you willing to put your faith into action?  Are you willing to take massive action in the direction of your dreams, goals, aspirations and purpose?

I sure hope so.

Isn’t it time you starting doing it afraid?

I say YES…

So get moving!

In ALL things give THANKS…

Happy November!!

10611531715_ffdc28bff2

It’s that time of year when we are getting ready for the holidays, switching out our warm weather clothing for our cold & freezing (for some us) weather clothing.  We have fully transitioned from summer to fall and we are now getting ready for a time of giving thanks this month.  Although it should be celebrated on a daily basis, we tend to focus more on giving thanks and being appreciative during the month of November due to Thanksgiving.  Last Year I did something called 30 Days of Thanks where each day I posted something for us to be thankful for with a journal assignment and prayer at that end.

A few days ago, there happened to be someone who found my blog post on the 30 Days of Thanks and subscribed to receive my 30 Days of Thanks that I created last year.  How awesome is that!  Well in light of that, I decided to dedicate this month’s weekly posts to excerpts from the the 30 Days of Thanks.

I hope you enjoy them and while doing so remember: In ALL things give thanks, for this is the WILL of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

If you are interested in receiving my 30 Days of Thanks post at anytime, click here to receive 30 days of THANKS

Today’s post is from Day 5:

30 Days of Thanks…

Day Five:

Today’s day of thanks is focused on our Basic Necessities: FOOD, CLOTHING, SHELTER.We are five days into the 30 Days of Thanks and today we want to take this day to focus on food, clothing and shelter.  Oftentimes, we tend to focus only on what we don’t have but most times we are referring to not having enough to meet our ‘wants‘ not our ‘needs.‘  In preparing for today’s post and in light of Hurricane Sandy, I started thinking about the hundreds of thousands of people who lost EVERYTHING!  For them, their homes and everything in it was destroyed.  After Hurricane Sandy, the basics of food, clothing, and shelter, something we take for granted on a daily basis, vanished in a moment.
  • Can you imagine leaving your home to escape a storm and coming back to realize your home and everything in it is no longer there?
  • Can you imagine working one day, lose your job another day, lose your home the following month leaving you the only option but to move into a shelter just to have somewhere to lay your head?
  • Can you imagine making enough money to just barely pay the bills but not have enough for food? or vice versa?
  • Can you imagine going to the food pantry for food just to feed yourself and your family when there used to be a time you ate out every other weekend?
This is the reality of many people.  You see, the face of homelessness is no longer what we think.  It is YOU, it is I, it is who we least expect; people who work hard, love God and want the best for themselves and their families.  They may even have their own businesses, they may have gotten laid off or maybe there just isn’t enough money to cover the month.  Either way, as you will see below, the face of homeless has changed and if we aren’t careful, it could be any one of us.  (If you want you can say THANK YOU lord for food, clothing, and shelter RIGHT NOW, be my guest).Before we move into being thankful for our wants in another post (which for some people food, clothing, and shelter are wants), which goes beyond the basics, we want to focus on our needs.  So as you focus on giving thanks for having somewhere to lay your head, eating a nice hot meal, and having clean clothes to put on your body, think about these statistics (http://www.grabstats.com/statcategorymain.aspx?StatCatID=7):
  • National Homeless Estimates: 700,000 per night; 2 million/year. (On any given night in America / US, anywhere from 700,000 to 2 million people are homeless)
  • The homeless population is made up of: Single men 44 percent of the homeless,single women 13 percentfamilies with children 36 percent, andunaccompanied minors seven percent (7%).
  • The homeless population is about 50 percent African-American35 percent white12 percent Hispanic2 percent Native American and 1 percent Asian.
  • 28% of adults said they sometimes or often do not get enough to eat, compared with 12% of poor American adults.
  • 44 percent did paid work during the past month.
  • 66 percent of the homeless have problems with alcohol, drug abuse, or mental illness.
  • 30 percent have been homeless for more than two years.
  • 3.5 million people (1.35 million of which are children) will experience homelessness in a given year ** THIS Is HUGE!!!
  • Families with children comprise 33% of the homeless population.
  • 25%of the homeless nationwide are employed — WORKING BUT HOMELESS
  • 31 million Americans now live in hunger or on the edge of hunger.
  • Families are the largest and fastest growing segment of the homeless population.
After reading these stats, my heart was very heavy because I remember a time where that could have been me.  When I got laid off from my job back in 2009, I wasn’t sure where I’d be or if I’d be able to find a job immediately.  When a two-income home now becomes a one-income home, you wonder how you are going to make it through.  BUT GOD!  He helped us make it through.  Every bill was paid, and we were able to live comfortably, but tight, on my husband’s income and speaking engagements I was getting at the time.  I was attending graduate school to get my second masters, that I had imagined my prior employer would pay for. But when I got laid off, that was another bill I had to think about paying.  Again, BUT GOD.  I completed my second masters in Mental Health Counseling in May 2011 while pregnant with my first child.  In the midst of all of that, I began to appreciate the little things: having the lights and gas on.  $1 Movie nights from Redbox, just being able to spend quality time with my husband even though we may not have had enough money for a date outside the home.  I started thanking God for the basics and I also started getting creative on how we could still have a great time on a budget.There were a couple passages in the Bible that the Lord took me to as I was meditating on what to write for today’s post.  The first is in Deuteronomy 8:2-4.  At this point, the children of Israel had been reminded of how God provided manna for them while in the wilderness and how during those 40 years of wandering (that’s another post), the clothes they wore NEVER wore out nor did their feet swell.  The passage states that God led them in the wilderness to humble them and test them in order to know what was in their heart.Let me stop here for a minute.There may be someone who has been in a dry place for an extended time and you aren’t sure why.  You feel like it has been forever and you keep wondering when you are going to transition to a place of abundance.  Well I am here to tell you to start giving thanks NOW for where you are.  Start giving thanks for how far you have already come.  Lastly, start giving him thanks for providing for you while in this dry season. As the advertisement says on TV, THIS IS ONLY A TEST.  Yes you are being tested.  Although your ‘milk and honey’ are already prepared for you, there is a season of the basics (hopefully not for 40 years) that you have to go through in order for God to see if He can trust you to keep his commands and obey him NO MATTER WHAT.

  • Can you be thankful for your beans and franks when you hear people talking about filet Mignon?
  • Can you be thankful and trust God for your WIC and food stamps while others eat out every weekend or better yet every day?  
  • Can you be thankful for your current wardrobe, knowing that someone is wishing they had what you currently have?  
  • Can you be thankful for being faithful over few so that God can one day place you over many?  
  • Can you be trusted to bless God in the small places?  
  • Can you be trusted to know that man does not live by bread, steak, salmon, steak hoagies, or any other food alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God?
“2 Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. 3 He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. 4 Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years.” (Deuteronomy 8:2-4)
The other passage that the Lord took me to was Philippians 4:11-13 where Paul states that he had learned to be content in whatever circumstances he encountered.Can you say the same?  I mean can you REALLY?For those of you that God has REALLY blessed.  I mean spiritually and financially.  Can you be trusted to give thanks in everything if it is all taken away?  

THINK ABOUT IT….  Have you learned to be content in every area of your life?  Have you learned to be grateful and appreciative even when you are piping mad that God has decided to use you as the poster child for his Kingdom purpose?

I will tell you I’ve been there and yes I have been mad about it.  But with time I get over myself because knowing God like I know him, when certain things happen, I know HE is always up to something, even if I don’t like it.  So once I feel my flesh/ego rise up, I begin to say, ‘Lord I don’t know what you are doing, and I most certainly don’t like it, but as long you get the glory, I will go along for the ride.”  You see sometimes giving thanks isn’t always about doing it when you WANT to do it.  Sometimes it’s about doing it when you NEED to do it because it’s what NEEDS to be done in order for GOD’s purpose to be fulfilled in your life.

“11for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:11-13)
Journal Assignment: 
So with that said, take some time to think, ponder and meditate on those passages of scripture.  Remember that in order to build your faith, you must know the word.  But not only do you need to know it, you need to know how to put it to use at the appropriate time.  Once you have meditated on those passages, write about how things would be different for you if you didn’t have food, clothing or shelter.  If you have already been there, go back to that place and really think about what was going at that time, how were you feeling, did you know God was strategically positioning you for something at a later date.  Think about how you would feel if you came home and your house was destroyed or better yet, not there?  Think about how you may overindulge on food, clothing and maybe even shelter.  You buy more than you use.  You aren’t being a good steward of what you have been blessed with. Now keep in mind we are only focusing on the basics.  Are you buying food and wasting it by not eating it before it spoils.  Are you not taking care of your home?  Are you getting slack in your home maintenance?  Are you hoarding clothes just for the sake of it.  Get rid of EVERYTHING that you are no longer using or have too much of and give it to someone who could actually put it to use.  If you are in a position to be a blessing, then DO IT.
Prayer: 
Lord on this 5th day of thanks we just want to say thank you for the basics.  Thank for you supplying and providing us with food to eat, clothes to wear and shelter to keep us safe and warm.  Lord forgive us for taking these great but small things for granted.  We wake up every morning with no thought that at some point they could be gone in the blink of an eye.  We thank you for supplying our need according to your riches in glory.  Thank you for blessing us with more than enough.  Thank you that during our dry season, you ‘kept’ us. You provided and not only did you provide, you allowed our clothes and shoes not to be worn out just like you did for the children of Israel.  We may not have realized it then but we realize now that our setback was a set up for our comeback and for you to show out.  Lord bless the families that were affected by Hurricanes Sandy who no longer even have the basics anymore.  Bless those families and individuals who are homeless, who have no food or who only have the clothes on their bodies.  We speak a supernatural blessing to them TODAY.  Because we know that nothing is too hard for you, we pray not only for ourselves but for them that you would open a door for a job, for transportation, for groceries, for a check in the mail, anything else that they may need and lastly for insight, wisdom and understanding to recognize the blessing, utilize it properly and then immediately GIVE THANKS. We know you can do anything but fail. Now unto you who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that can ask or think.  Amen.

Mind Over Matter. Master Your Mind. Master Your Life.

I am finding that more and more people are struggling with negative, pessimistic, hindering thoughts that keep them from living God’s best life for themselves.  In this month’s article, I will share some of the points I mentioned during my May Motivational Coaching Call. I believe that if you are struggling with self-defeating thoughts or have more negative than positive thoughts, then this message is for you.

The first thing you must know is… EVERYTHING starts in the mind.  Where you are today is a direct result of the thoughts you have been thinking.  The very thoughts you had one, two, or three years ago have brought you to this very place.  If you want to change the direction of your life, you MUST change the direction of your thoughts.

Now if everything starts in the mind with a thought or idea, the next question is …

  • What type of thoughts do you have?
  • What do you think about in a daily basis?

Take a minute to ponder on that…. Keep in mind that on a daily basis we have some 70,000 thoughts that go in and out of our minds.  YES you heard right… 70,000!!!  With that many how are we to know which ones to pay attention and which ones to let go of… I know many days I feel the same way.

Now let me ask you this…

  • Do you think about what you think about?

Let that settle for a few seconds.

  • Do you really think about your thoughts? 

Or do you just let whatever comes into your head stay, pay rent and take residence? If you answered YES to the latter, that’s part of true problem. You don’t believe you can control and dictate your thoughts. You think that because it shows up you have to let it in and take residence.

NOT SO!!

Today start being intentional and on purpose about your thoughts.

Proverbs 4:23 in two different translations says…

  • Carefully guard your thoughts because they are the source of true life. (CEVDCUS06)
  • More than anything you guard, protect your mind, for life flows from it. (CEB)

Where you desire to be in a year will be because of the thoughts you think today. When you make the commitment to think about what you think about, you then have to start renewing your mind daily with the kind of thoughts that propel you into purpose and destiny. Self affirming and catapulting thoughts. What do you say to yourself when no one is looking? If you don’t know then you need to start being more proactive about that. What you think is what you will say. Start saying and meditating day and night on those things that are positive; that are life generating and life affirming; that are purpose propelling and catalytic in your life. You don’t want to keep thinking thoughts that only hold you back or keep you stagnant because of stinking thinkin.

If you aren’t sure if you suffer from stinkin thinkin, here are some examples:

  • This is just the way I am
  • This is who God made me
  • If I was supposed to change I would have changed by now
  • I’m too old for this I’m too set in my ways
  • This is the way things are supposed to be
  • I’ve tried everything and nothing has worked (even though you really didn’t. You tried the first week and when it didn’t turn out the way you thought you quit.)
  • I’m tired of trying
  • What if it doesn’t work… what if I fail
  • It’s sound too good to be true and if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.
  • That’s not me that takes too much energy
  • What will people, my husband/wife, friends think
  • You have been thinking and planning for years but have yet to get started
  • It’s never your fault, it’s always someone else
  • Maybe they are right… maybe I should have just…

Is this you??? 

If so, it’s time to change how you thinkchange what you think about, and make positive self affirming deposits within yourself (affirmations, reading, change your environment of people places and things, have rebuttals).

John Maxwell says, “If you don’t like the crop you are reaping, you need to change the seed you are sowing! You need to start sowing the seed of good thinking?

You may not think so, but IT IS possible to start changing the way you think.

In order to master your thoughts you must…

  • Identify negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts
  • Be more intentional about your thoughts
  • Actively and intentionally attain resources available to help you master your thinking and other areas in your life.

You have to start making daily deposits in yourself to really make the changes you need. If you don’t have anything to draw from you get NSF (Non-Sufficient Funds) like in a bank account.

Start investing in yourself.  Start investing in books, reading materials, seminars, conferences, a Life Coach, etc. that challenge you to go to the next level in your thinking.  Where you are is not where you are supposed to be.  You can go so much further! Surround yourself with people who build you up and who challenge you. Iron sharpens iron.  Don’t stay complacent with where you are. Always have a desire and yearning to cultivate, nurture and grow personally. Stretch yourself.

Make a firm decision that who you are now is not who you want to be and where you are is not where you desire to be next year.  Many times we say, ‘by this time next year, I will be‘ … and when next year arrives you are in the exact same place.  You never do anything to make your future dreams and goals manifest.  In order to change your thinking, you must identify what has contributed to your current way of thinking.  If any of those ‘stinkin thinkin’ examples I gave you sound familiar, it is time for a change.

Let me ask you a few questions…

  • Was there something that happened when you were a child that caused you to lock yourself in a box and swear to never come out?
  • Who changed your self esteem and intimidated you into thinking that the greatness that resides inside of you doesn’t exist?
  • What other people, places and things have you encountered in your life that caused you to give up so quickly without every trying?
  • Were you abused, bullied, sheltered, made to feel less than, talked down to or even exposed to people who had drive no passion or zeal.

Do you even know what it is to just take a risk and go for it and try the impossible?

Joyce Meyers states in her book, “Battlefield of the Mind,” “Our past may explain why we’re suffering, but we must not use it as an excuse to stay in bondage.”  

If you are asking if there is a way to get past this… YES, there is a way out if you so desire it!  Most of our outward behavior is only a result of our inner life. If that inner critic can control your thoughts, he can control your actions… and from the looks of your actions, he may still be controlling your thoughts.

BUT NOT AFTER TODAY!

Whatever it may be, it’s time to put mind over matter and begin the journey to mastering your thoughts, so you can master your life.

Because if … 

…you are what you think … what are you?

and

…if  we become what we think… what will become of you?

Yes… think about that…based on your thoughts what are you and what will become of you?

To become more of what you think instead of what just pops into your mind you have to start thinking about what you think about.  You must be more intentional about your thinking.  You have to start thinking IN purpose and ON purpose.

Here are some ways to think purposefully from Rick Warren, Pastor and Author of the Purpose-Driven Life:

  • Satan can’t get your attention when your mind is preoccupied with something else. That’s why the Bible teaches us to fix our thoughts on Jesus (Hebrews 3:1) and to fill our minds with those things that are good and that deserve praise: things that are “true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and honorable.” (Philippians 4:8 TEV)
  • When we’re serious about defeating temptation, we will manage our thoughts and monitor our media intake. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived warned: “Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” (Proverbs 4:23 TEV)
  • Don’t allow thoughts to run indiscriminately in your mind. Be selective. Choose carefully what you think about. Follow Paul’s model: “We capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5 NCV)

If you aren’t an avid reader, here a few books I’ve read and am reading that deal with the mind to help get you off to a good start:

  • Rich Dad Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki
  • Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill
  • Thinking for A Change – John Maxwell
  • Battlefield of the Mind – Joyce Meyer
  • Secrets of the Millionaire Mind – T. Harv Eker
  • As a Man Thinketh- James Allen
  • The Holy Bible

Lastly, here is a quote that I closed the call out with:

“Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life. If you continue to believe as you have always believed, you will continue to act as you have always acted. If you continue to act as you have always acted, you will continue to get what you have always gotten. If you want different results in your life or your work, all you have to do is change your mind.”  ~Unknown

I hope you enjoyed the plethora of content I shared with you from our May Motivational Coaching Call.  There are so many people missing out on their best life because they don’t believe they can have it.  Remember it starts in the MIND.  My prayer is that you will start to master your mind so you can master you life.  Now, if you know this isn’t something you can so on your own, head over to my website and check out how we can work together.  I’d love to be the catalyst you need to start living life in and on purpose.

Tenacious Tuesday – Motivational Minute 388

It’s Tenacious Tuesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Don’t Let Go!  

Although it may seem like allllll hell is coming against you and things may not seem like they are working out how you imagined, DON’T LET GO!  If it seems like the very people who you thought would and should support you, but question the very essence of what you are doing, DON’T LET GO!  When it seems like nothing is coming to together and you are even losing sight of your goal, your dream, your purpose, DON’T LET GO!

WHY?

Because everything you are going through will be used to catapult you into your purpose and destiny.  It will be used for God’s glory.  It will be used to be a blessing to someone else.  What you are going through isn’t for you, it’s for someone else.  They are waiting for you to come out and share your story.

So

Don’t Give Up

&

DON’T LET GO! 

YOUR TURN… on this Tenacious Tuesday, tell me what you are on the verge of letting go?  Have you been on the verge of letting go?  Did you?  If so, why and did you regret not holding on just a little longer?  If not, what kept you from letting go?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

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

Detra

Tenacious Tuesday – Motivational Minute 374

It’s Tenacious Tuesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Think ON Purpose!  

In order for you to get total control of your life you are going to have to be INTENTIONAL and ON PURPOSE about how you think and what you think about.   If you don’t control your thoughts, they WILL control YOU!  If things aren’t turning out the way you’d like, you may need to check your thoughts and see who’s running the show…. YOU or YOUR THOUGHTS!  It’s time for you to think about what you think about and start THINKING ON PURPOSE!

The May Motivational Coaching Call is entitled “Mind Over Matter: Master Your Mind. Master You Life.”  It takes place this Thursday, May 2nd at 8pm and it’s FREE.  Won’t you join me! (Register for the call by clicking here.)

YOUR TURN… on this Tenacious Tuesday, tell me, do you think on purpose?  Do you think about what you think about or do you just accept what pops into your head?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

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

Fearless Friday – Motivational Minute 370

It’s Fearless Friday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Stop being afraid of the greatness that God has placed inside of you.  I believe that you could be part of a group of people who aren’t fearful of anyone but yourself.  You know there’s something BIG waiting to come out but you won’t walk in the fullness of who God created you to be because you don’t know where the road will lead.  Surrender to the knowledge that says all things work together for your good and that you serve a God who is able to do EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY above anything you can ever ask or think!

Be Fearless and Surrender to God and Surrender to your GREATNESS!    

The world is waiting on YOU!

 

YOUR TURN… on this Fearless Friday, tell me what about your greatness scares you?  How has fear paralyzed you from operating in your greatness?  Could it be that YOU are what’s really holding you back? What are you REALLY afraid of?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Thankful Thursday – Motivational Minute 369

It’s Thankful Thursday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is….

Take a few minutes to look around and see all the blessings you have been afforded and say THANK YOU!  You may not be where you want to be, but you most certainly aren’t where you used to be.   Be thankful for the journey and the progress you’ve made in your life.  Developing the habit of having an attitude of gratitude is necessary for you to embrace every blessing, big and small that comes into your life.

YOUR TURN… on this Thankful Thursday, tell me what you see when you look around.  What blessings are there right before your very eyes that you fail to acknowledge each day?  How can you develop the habit of having an attitude of gratitude each day?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!
