I used to sit and read and study books for hours and hours. I wanted to learn all that I could. Hungry for more knowledge, I asked God to show me how to accelerate my growth.
He led me to build a positive change business helping others heal.
Instead of reading about faith, I had to pull it out if my cells to make things move.
Instead of learning about commitment, I had to draw it out daily, amidst obstacles at times, to build something solid.
Instead of receiving revelation at church, I needed it every single day, every phone call, each interaction, I felt I had to have His guidance to know even the words to speak.
Putting PRINCIPLES into ACTION…helped me to KNOW TRUTH BY LIVING IT.
That kind of knowledge is so different in my spectrum than all the reading I used to do–like night and day. This is LIVING KNOWLEDGE. Moment by moment inspiration.
It’s one thing to “know” a principle, and another when it BECOMES who we are, by doing it so many times, we can’t even remember living another way.
It’s not truth by knowing…
It’s TRUTH by BEING, and BEING happens by IMMERSION.
Sometimes you are so busy taking care of people, you forget to ask…
“How AM I doing?”
And take care of you, as well.
All attempts to get what we want through indirect means are manipulation.
Including the following:
-Telling our story to get others to feel sorry for us or give love & validation.
-Wanting others to do things for us and using emotional responses to guilt or pressure them into doing so. (like withdrawing love, or getting angry.)
-Using indirect methods of communication instead of open, direct DIALOGUE with the SOURCE.
We are powerful enough to create the LOVE we want and the things we feel are ours to obtain, by going directly to the source and ASKING for what we need.
if someone says to me, “I am so burdened, so frustrated…”
I am looking for what they want.
I am waiting to hear their direct requests.
“Can you share your love with me?”
“Can you give me some coaching tips?”
Going to the SOURCE and asking specifically for what we desire is the only true, healthy way. God also waits for us to ASK for what we need and invites us continually in the scriptures to do so.
Using emotion to secure what we want in any other “indirect manner” is out of alignment with our true selves which crave deep honesty, authenticity without masks and meaningful relationships by choice…not guilt ridden obligation.
When we do enough work inside to get ourselves here, and we are this clear and certain, we are now in a position of powerful Creation.
We communicate well and with clarity.
We handle our emotions with responsibility, and yield our words consciously.
With these skills, we can obtain healthy love;
We live in pure relationships that come from original desire, and we are ready to experience true abundance in all it’s forms.
From thousands of hours of coaching, it seems that nearly all business/relational conflicts come down to boundary issues.
“What is my part?”
“What is your part?
Do what’s yours.
Do it with clarity, and pure intent and don’t own what isn’t yours (and don’t apologize)
More to come later..
When you want to run a successful business YOU have to grow up with it.
You get to face every fear you have. All your insecurities rush forward. Your jealousy and blame patterns come to greet you & everyone who talks to you.
Your results reveal themselves clearly in black numbers on white screens.
Business is the best way to grow into your own fullest POWER and CAPACITY.
It is the great reflector of yourself, 2nd only to parenting.
If you suck at it, you know, because the zeros will tell you, and they can’t be ignored.
When YOU EXPAND, you’ll see it right away, because the growth will reflect that change in the balance sheets.
Every day your business asks you the same question: WHO do you want to be today?
And tomorrow, it will show you how you answered.
If you think people owe you something–more love, more money, more appreciation, an apology.
It means you are still outside sourcing important aspects of your life.
One thing I never hear from people who are connected to their own power is the story of how they believe someone owes them something.
They never talk about how they need an apology, a phone call back, or someone slighted them with money.
They are in the driver’s seat. They are connected to their own power and to God. They have so many great things going on, they live in a place where there is not lack.
Because they create so much for themselves, including emotionally, they don’t get “hurt” or perceive shortages from others. If a relationship doesn’t work for them, they simply change THEMSELVES and therefore they make sure they have a different experience.
Who are all the people that you feel haven’t given you enough?
What personal power have you given away to them? What are you still “waiting” to be given from another person so that you can be truly happy?
If you tell the truth, Resentment for them will turn into compassion for yourself, when you didn’t know what you were doing.
When you accelerate your speed, you have to let go of things that are too heavy to work anymore, like…
**Not taking time to rest & take care of yourself.
**Thinking you’re not worthy of success you’re achieving.
**Trying to be perfect all the time & constant “image management.” (poison)
**Not being honest about what you think and feel.
**Pushing yourself beyond healthy breakdown into terminal breakdown.
**Other people’s problems that don’t belong to you.
**Continuing to think about and carry the past.
What you let go of, is just as important as what YOU HOLD onto.
Breathe in and make some changes.
You get to be as “LIGHT” as you can, to keep moving and ever evolving.
I have seen a lot of people get knocked down by life lately. And I watched them get back up again.
Apparently, they are not going to take this lying down. They refuse to be defeated. No matter what life throws at them, they just keep getting up and getting up to fight another day and make their way to paradise.
TO all of you YOU … I salute you.
And cheer for you.
Angels and a world of people are cheering you on today.
Take a deep breath.
You’ve got this.
Everyone has a LEADER within.
LEAD with VISION and CLARITY where ever you find yourself with stewardship. at home, at church, in business, where ever.
“(Leadership) is the process ordinary people use when they are bringing forth the best from themselves and others. What we’ve discovered is that people make EXTRAORDINARY things happen by liberating the leader within everyone.” Launching a Leadership Revolution, page 13. I love this book. It’s my new favorite. Reading it all the time.
How do we motivate people? How can we help them achieve?
We see weakness, confusion and breakdown when people with stewardship do not live from the leadership capacity inside themselves…But everyone can BE SMART and ON PURPOSE to DO SOMETHING and SUPPORT OTHERS to CREATE the BEST for themselves!
