Don’t believe me, Just watch

don't believe me, Just watch

#‎TrueheartSpeaksChronicles‬: Don’t be one of those people who have something to say about what everyone else is doing, but YOU aren’t doing anything but running your mouth. While you are talking. WE are doing. At least we are trying and putting forth some type of effort, while you judge, criticize and critique.

Stop it!

You aren’t a even benchwarmer, you don’t even sit on the sidelines. You speak from the bleachers. You aren’t even on the team yet. Why, because you do more talking that doing. Why because it’s more comfortable to sit and talk about what others are doing and how it probably won’t work, rather than stretch and be more than a mere exister (yeah I made that word up). But yet you have yet to even try.

Stop it! — Close your mouth and DO something.

Stop being the crab in the barrel. Stop being negative Nancy.

Stop it!

Even the benchwarmer is on the team. He may not get any play but he shows up for practice ready and awaiting his turn. What about you? Can we say the same about you. NOPE… If you aren’t going to get in the game the least you could do is cheer us on… encourage us or just be quiet and stay out of the way. It’s just that simple. Please don’t sit around waiting for our demise because you will be more than disappointed. Like, the donkey who’s master tried to bury him, we will rise and step over every ounce of dirt/shade you throw our way.

For those of you getting discouraged by the constant negative talk from those around you , find new people to share your dreams with or just don’t share them at all until God introduces you to a new row. Be intentional about surrounding yourself with people who challenge you to rise up and be better. Remember iron sharpens irons. Get round iron sharpeners. Stay away from plastic and glass… they bend, cut and break too easily.

Trust that what God has for you is for YOU. Also use wisdom, everyone who loves you won’t get it you. Leave them in their proper category. Let them love you but never trust them with your dreams if they’ve shown they can’t help you carry, give birth and grow your dreams. I’ve had to learn the hard way a few times, but after those few times, I learned my lesson. Pay attention to the patterns of people and guard your vision.

As Maya Angelou said, when people show you who they are, believe them. As you launch out and pursue living a life in and on purpose, be intentional in your pursuit…

and operate by these two phrases…

“I can show you better than I can tell you.”

“Don’t believe me, just watch!”

Show them… stop telling them!

Repetition + Consistency = Success

repetition-3

The question is what exactly are you doing over and over again…

Over these last few months I have been watching my son learn and grow day by day as a result of attending pre-school.  He is learning songs, letters, numbers, colors and tons of other things.  For some reason over the weekend, it dawned on me that repetition plus consistency equals success.  There is a quote by Aristotle that says “we are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act, but a habit.

What if I changed this statement around and said that we are what we repeatedly do, ‘mediocrity, settling, being average,’ then is not an act, but a habit.  How does that change your perspective in how you view what you do on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis?

Is what you are repeatedly doing bringing you closer to the life and purpose you desire?

My son comes home singing songs that he has learned and listened to repeatedly on a daily basis.  He is learning his letters and colors.  Why?  Because everyday, they review colors and a letter of the week.  This week is H or I.  When we are out, he is recognizing colors and certain letters in words.

Why because repetition + consistency = success.

<< Test First Name >>, just think about how you first learned the ABC song… by repetition and consistency, right?.  If it worked then... don’t you think it would work now.

My coaching question for you is …

What are you repeatedly doing that is leading to the success you desire?
Or
Is what you are repeatedly doing leading to a life of mediocrity and average living?

Just yesterday, a General in the Faith was killed in a plane crash.  Although he wasn’t someone I studied from and I didn’t know much about him, I have numerous friends who loved Dr. Munroe’s teachings.  He was known for teaching about purpose and living intentionally.  His life is an example that you can be here today and gone tomorrow.  He was on a private plane headed to host his annual Global Leadership Forum, set to take place today.

From what I did know about Dr. Munroe, he lived an intentional and full life.  He was intentional about living in and on purpose and teaching others how to do the same.  He was clear about why he was hear and he did things on a daily basis to achieve the success he desired.

Can you say the same? 

Can you say that the things you repeatedly and consistently do lead to the life, love and work you desire?

If the answer is yes, then keep on keeping on. But if deep down inside you know that what you are doing isn’t giving you the results you desire, then it’s time to make a change. Only you have the power to change what isn’t working in your life.  No need to keep doing something over and over again and expecting different results.  That is what we call insanity, right?  If you want different, do different.

Your assignment: 
Identify what you do repeatedly and consistently and then figure out if it’s working for you or not.  If so, continue on… If not, it’s time for a change.

If you want to take it step further, book a 90 Minute Heart-Storming Session, so we can get you repeatedly doing what breeds success instead of mediocrity.

Until next time…

61 days away…

Happy November!!!

We have two months left in this year.

What are you going to do with those 61 days? A year from now you will wish you had started today!  No need in having another set of regrets.  No need in thinking back one year from now thinking… I should have just started.

Pick one thing you said you would do this time last year and do it today.

Then let me know what you did below in the comments.

Have the faith to take the first step.

God has not forgotten about you

God has not

Not sure who this post is for but know that God has not forgotten about you.  I know you may be going through a rough patch in your life, your marriage, your job, your finances, your health or anything else.

Know this, God’s word is true when He says He will never leave you nor forsake you.  You might feel alone, but you are not alone.  You might feel isolated and that may have nothing to do with you and EVERYTHING to do with God.  Sometimes God has to strip us and separate us not to break us but to make us.  There is purpose even in the breaking.  When God is involved there is only one reason for the breaking and that is the making.

You have purpose.  You have value. You have a specific reason for being here.  Never doubt it and never let what you are going through or what you’ve been through to make you second guess that.

You are being pressed.  You are being crushed.  You are being stripped.  You are feeling like you don’t have anything else to give.  Just hold on.  God is not through with you just yet.  He is doing a work in you.  He is preparing you.

Don’t fight the feeling.  Don’t fight the test.  Don’t give in to the temptations and distractions of the enemy.  Pay attention to the tactics, schemes, and patterns of the enemy.  He is keen but he isn’t that smart.  You will come out of this.  You will overcome this.  For you are an overcomer.  I know you are feeling overwhelmed but God asks that we cast out cares on Him for He cares for us.  I dare you to cast all of your cares on Him and look to hills from which comes your help because your help come from the Lord.

I want you to speak God’s word over yourself, your life and your situation.   Speak life into yourself and that situation that you feel like is trying to over take you.  Take it over with the power of life in your words.

I believe in you and in the God that resides in you.  Trust Him bring you out of this season better, stronger and wiser.

Until next time…

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…

Tenacious Tuesday – Motivational Minute 415

It’s Tenacious Tuesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is…

YOU’VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES!

On this Tenacious Tuesday, I want you know that in spite of what your inner critic, your past and maybe even your present is telling you, you have what it takes.  During this time in my life, I am embarking on some new things personally and professionally and some days it gets scary to venture out into unchartered territory.

Sometimes, I start thinking…

  • Am I on the right track?
  • Can I do what God is telling me to do?
  • Am hearing Him correctly?

If you are having similar thoughts, the answer to all of these questions is YES!  I am hear to tell you what the Lord has been speaking to me,  not only do you have what it takes, but it will take all you’ve got in order for it to come to pass.  Don’t half-step or play around with it because once you give it all you’ve got, God will kick in His grace, mercy and favor and help you out.  I’ve learned that when we do our part-the natural, it then frees God up to do His part-the super.  When you put His SUPER with your NATURAL, there’s no stopping you!

YOUR TURN… on this Tenacious Tuesday, what has your inner critic, your past or even your present been saying to you to make you feel as though you don’t have what it takes?  How do you persevere past those challenges that come to keep you from the things that bring you closer to purpose and destiny?

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

Here’s to you living life IN & 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…

Motivational Monday – Motivational Minute 387

It’s Motivational Monday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Keep Moving FORWARD!  

The key, however, is to that you must NOT move backwards but you must keep moving forward.  You also must not stand still (unless God says so).  But with one step in front of the other, you have to believe that every step is worth it.  In spite of mistakes and in spite of your fears, KEEP Moving FORWARD!

YOUR TURN… on this Motivational Monday, what ways can you keep moving forward? What distractions are trying to keep you from moving forward.  Identify them, write them down and make a commitment to move in spite of your fears and your feelings?  If you are currently moving forward with full speed ahead, how did you do it and how are you doing it?

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!

Tenacious Tuesday – Motivational Minute 381

It’s Tenacious Tuesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Keep going no matter how you feel.  You don’t operate according to your feelings, they operate according to you!  Get them under control and get to work!  You might be tired, you might be frustrated and you might even want to quit, but DON’T.  Just keep moving with one foot right in front of the other and soon you will see that it was all worth it! Everything worth having is worth working hard for.

YOUR TURN… on this Tenacious-Tuesday, are you almost ready to quit?  Tell me how you plan to keep going and persevere past your feelings.

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 362

It’s Thankful Thursday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

In light of Monday’s horrific event in Boston and hundreds of victims, let us remember on this day to take time to pray for the peace of our country, the victims and their families.  When things don’t always go the way we’ve planned, we still have to be thankful for the lesson within the experience.  Some times things don’t happen because of us, but to test our faith and our resilience.  Therefore in the midst of this tragedy and any other tragic event you may be going through, remember to give thanks in all things no matter the outcome.

20130416-181957.jpg

YOUR TURN… on this Thankful Thursday, take a moment to let me know what you are thankful for and how it strengthened you.

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