Personalize Your Faith

The Christian faith is often a difficult journey. Life, itself, is difficult. However, once someone decides to trust a visible (yet invisible) God, it can make life seem a little more difficult to understand. It’s even the more difficult to be an entrepreneur and a devote Christian because you try to appeal to as many people as you can while yet upholding your Christian integrity. The Christian journey is personal; lonely most of the time. That’s why personalizing your faith is important because at the end of the day, when the lights go out, it’s just you and God!

As a Personalize Your Faith Coach, some have asked: how does someone personalize their faith. I always reassure the person that having faith, or trust, in God is a daily renewal process. It’s not a destination. It’s something that you need daily to endure the negativity and evil that is always present. This renewal process is sort of like gaining a better focus on God’s Will is for your life. To focus your faith, you are also personalizing your faith. When we focus, are senses are heightened and we aren’t easily distracted with the tricks of the enemy.

How can someone focus their faith? The first thing I recommend is facing the truth! Get butt-naked honest with God and self. Ask yourself the tough, open-ended, mind-strengthening questions about life and what you need! Overcome the negativity! Rebuke the limiting beliefs and destroy the root cause of all negativity thoughts that crosses your mind! Calm down but increase consistency! Have you emotional and human moments; get all of that out! That’s complete fine but eventually you’ll need to calm down! However, calming down does not mean stop working your purpose! In fact, you need to increase your consistency in accomplishing your assignments! Unleash a plan of action! Write your vision, give your dreams/goals life, and get to work! It says in James 2:17 how faith without works is dead. Finally, stir up your gifts! Discover your supernatural abilities (spiritual gifts) so that you know where you’ll make the most impact in the Kingdom of God! The Kingdom of God includes several areas of influence, e.g. government, schools, television, etc. Your supernatural abilities help to unleash unlimited possibilities!

His Light and Your S.H.I.N.E.: Overcoming the Fear of Failure

His Light

We are the image and likeness of God. Divine DNA.  Light.  Made with purpose; for the purpose of serving God by serving His creation.

Your S.H.I.N.E.

Matthew 5:14-16 (ESV)

14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

You weren’t created to hide.  No one will know about you or your business when you allow the fear of failure to stop your S.H.I.N.E.

Show up: your community and the world is waiting for you, your gifts and your business to show up.  Be in the room.  Put in the proposals.  Launch the conference.  Schedule the workshop.  Post the Facebook Ad.  Ask for the business.  Make the offer.  You see where this is going?

Honestly: bring everything that you are; past failures, lessons learned, and experiences to the table.  They are what make you authentically, uniquely you.

Intentionally: stay focused on your goals and vision for your life and business.  Distractions will come but being intentional forces them not to become derailments.

No: if and when something or someone isn’t in alignment with you showing up, honestly, and intentionally, don’t allow it.  Not going to allow it space and time in your life or business.

Excuses: no reason not to move forward.  For every reason or discouragement that comes to mind to keep you from moving forward, write down two reasons “to do” it instead.

Overcome the Fear of Failure

Failure isn’t an option because you already have what you need to be successful in life and business.  Failure is feared because typically denotes that you didn’t succeed, but in truth, it means you’re one step closer to being successful.

No longer allow the grip of the fear of failure keep you from moving forward in life and business.  Your business is simply another way that God in, through and with you may S.H.I.N.E.!   

Let me partner with and coach you to reaching your life and business goals.

WHO NEEDS YOU??

They are waiting for you… remember that.

We look at our lives, who we are now, and tell God THANK YOU because we KNOW where we’ve come from and who we used to be. But how often do we look at the people who helped to curate us. Rather their contribution was small or great, they were pivotal to our present success.

Imagine where you would be if it wasn’t for that person who wouldn’t let you give up. What about the one who smiled every time you had an idea and told you how great it was? Think about that conversation where they said to GO FOR IT! Or even the one who tried to talk you OUT of it. But really they just gave you extra motivation…

All of these people played a part in getting you to this point. From then to now. 

So WHO are you here for? Who is waiting specifically for YOU to help them reach their NEXT LEVEL of clarity and success?

You are CALLED to solve someone’s problem, and to fill the GAP in their life. But what’s getting in your way and giving you quiet resistance?

During this session “Filling the G.A.P.S. : WHO are you here for?” We will break down the word GAPS to reveal how significant you are to your IDEAL CLIENT. Also showing you how to deal with and get past what’s making you resist, by honoring God’s CALL!

Remember…They are waiting for you!

Where will YOU start?

Having over $92,000 in personal debt gave me the motivation to create consistent profit in my direct sales business so that I could direct those earnings towards reaching our goal of paying that debt off in less than 4 years.  Muddling through that experience taught me three things that will forever change the way I approach the financial side of my business; 1) Managed money really does work harder, 2) If you don’t know how to make your money behave, then no matter how much of it you bring in, it will never be enough, and 3) when managed well, your business will prove to be a blessing to your financial situation rather than a burden.

So where do you even start when it comes to creating a well-financially-managed business?

Well, there are several tips worth mentioning, but my number one go-to piece of advice is to start WHERE you are with what you already HAVE!  Did you know that some of the greatest businesses were started in someone’s garage or on a little card table in the corner of their bedroom? You don’t need a fancy storefront or the newest computer, or even a nice desk to create a wildly successful business.  (You WILL need time, persistence, and a strong work ethic, so don’t get discouraged if your business doesn’t take off immediately.)  If you are being called to create a business, take inventory of the resources you already have available to you.  Get creative…you’d be amazed at what you can accomplish with the tools you already own.  For example, if you would like to open a bakery someday, don’t get wrapped up in finding the right location or that super fancy limited edition mixer (although it really is pretty!).  Instead, buy some ingredients, grab the mixer you already own, and begin to bake.  Now go and sell a few cupcakes.  (And if no one buys those cupcakes you’ll be really glad you don’t have a brick and mortar rent to pay!)  But your cupcakes are FANTASTIC, so OF COURSE people will buy them.  And when they do, keep that money aside and begin to save for bigger, better tools.  This approach will help you create a low-risk (and oftentimes debt-free) business, leaving space in your brain to worry about more important things…like which flavor of frosting goes best with your new cake recipe!
