There is Still Time!!!

As I prepared to write this blog, I thought about how quickly we’ve made it to the month of August! Wow, the 8th month of the year. Seems like we were just celebrating the New Year. But here we are, in the middle of the 8th month of the year. And before you know it, the end of the year will be here.
My thoughts then went to the goals that I set out to complete this year. You know, our list of resolutions, resolves, vision boards, and SMART goals that we committed to at the start of 2018. Yeah those… Well, I’m not here to get on you or to tell you how much time you have wasted, but rather to let you know There is still time! Yes!!! With less than 5, and close to 4 months left in this year. There is still time to accomplish those goals. You may not be able to complete all of them, but if you start, you will be closer to completing them than if you never started. I want to issue you a challenge. Look at your goals, choose 3 of them and commit to completing them before the end of the year. Choose the ones that are most meaningful to you. I promise you, if you get started, you will feel encouraged to complete them. There several things that you can do to assist you with completing those goals:

1. Regroup-Assess where you are and commit to move forward. Life happens, keep moving forward.
2. Schedule a time(daily/weekly) to work on your goals. A consistent time will help you honor your commitment.
3. Invest in an Individual or Group Coaching program. The accountability will help you stay on track to reaching your goals.

I admit, I have strayed away from my initial goals for this year, but I am committed to completing the ones that are most meaningful to me. And I can’t wait to share them with you in the coming weeks.
Life happens and it definitely happened to me these last 6 months. But I am back on track and I am so excited. I promised myself that I would do better by and for myself. I have found the time to assist several individuals and organizations this year, sometimes at the expense of things that I have committed to get done for myself. But I remembered the promises I have made to myself and I owe it to myself to keep those promises and so do you!
So I just wanted to encourage you today and to remind you that There is still time!!.
Let’s get moving!!!!

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!!!!
