Don’t wait to congratulate yourself!

Whew! We made it through the first 33 days of 2020!  How is the progress coming along with your goals and vision?   My prayer is that you have been able to make some progress with your New Year Goals, Resolutions and Vision Boards.  Regardless of what you have committed to do this year, don’t allow anything to stand in the way of you reaching those goals.  If you are like me, you probably have a few goals that you’ve carried from 2019 into 2020.  And that’s fine.  Don’t be too hard on yourself.  Be grateful for another opportunity to complete it.   Try a different method this year.  Do a little research about the goals you are trying to reach and the vision you want to see manifested.  Pray often, seeking God for direction.  Once you have gained clarity, plan your work in small attainable steps.  Yes, you will have to  “put in work”.  Don’t be deceived in to thinking it will be easy.  It may be difficult and it may take longer than you anticipate, but keep working on it.   Remember to stay consistent and persistent about achieving your goals.  Celebrate often!  Don’t wait to congratulate yourself.  The fact that you have goals and a vision are worth celebrating.    I celebrate you!  So many times we get caught up on what has not been done and we forget to celebrate what has.  This year try building on the progress you make, no matter how small, build on it and celebrate it!  If you complete 3 out of 5 tasks, celebrate the 3, knowing you are more than halfway there.  Take the 2 remaining tasks forward into the new week and complete them.  Don’t get stuck in defeat and discouragement.  

God is so Gracious, he has allowed us to see a new year and to make it through the first month of the 2020! We owe it to HIM to reach our goals and be fully prepared to see the vision manifested this year.  Take those visions off the board and bring them to life.  

Remember these important steps as you move forward, conquer and celebrate!!  

    • Plan your work in small attainable steps.  Be reasonable with yourself and your ability.
    • Be consistent and persistent in your work.
    • Don’t wait to congratulate yourself for every step you accomplish.  

Let’s make it happen this year!

Stepping into Greatness

A few weeks ago, I had the awesome privilege of sharing a lesson with the ladies at our weekly Bible Study. I am always humbled and honored to share the Word with the people of God. The title of the lesson was “Breaking out of the box and stepping into Greatness. One of the most important points that I shared with the women, which really applies to everyone, is that there is Greatness on the inside of each of us.

As I shared in the W.I.N. last week, we spend so much time, doubting, fearing, questioning, comparing, and hiding, that we fail to recognize the greatness that lies on the inside of us. The naysayers try their hardest to convince us that we don’t have what it takes or we “can’t be serious” about pursuing our dreams. But if we are going to step into greatness and be successful, it is vitally important that we step out of the box that we have allowed them to place us in.

Below are the three things that I shared with the ladies, that we need to recognize in order for us to step into our Greatness!

1. We must recognize that God has a prosperous plan for our life. One that gives us a future and a hope. When must embrace the fact that there is a predestined plan and it is a prosperous one, filled with hope! Hope is defined as something that is desired, can be had. God sees us living prosperously, not just financially prosperous, but prosperous in our health, in our relationships and in every other area of our life. It is a part of His plan that we are prosperous.
2. We must recognize that Good is the enemy of Great! Being just good enough can cause us to commit to complacency. This will, in turn, cause us to live at a level beneath our God-given potential. We stay stuck in “good enough” because it is comfortable and not met with a lot of resistance…and it may be more palatable to those around us. But the Greatness that God predestined for us will force us out of our “good enough’ comfortable place. So we might as well get comfortable with being uncomfortable. God has placed greatness on the inside of each of us to accomplish great things!!! It imperative that we not settle for just being good enough. We must strive for Greatness.
3. We must recognize that OUR TIME IS NOW! Yep! I am reminding you again this week…YOUR TIME IS NOW!!!!! Too much time has passed and too much potential has gone untapped and unfulfilled! Too many missed opportunities, too much second-guessing and too much dimming down of the greatness that God has placed the inside of US. There are people waiting for us to step into our Greatness. There is no better time than now to step into Our Greatness. Everything that we have been through has shaped us for this moment. We are more prepared than we think.

So if this message resonates with you, I challenge you to meditate on these three things, then take a physical step forward, as a symbolic gesture of your step out of the box and a step into Greatness!!!

Start Stepping!!!! Let’sGo!!!!
