Be brave enough.
I have found there are 3 types of people I will sponsor into my business and industry, but only 1 type usually prevails. You decide which of the following 3 listed is you:
1) They say they want it, They talk like they want it, they even sometimes act as if they want it. But lack long term commitment.
2) They enroll, they sponsor, they even build a team for a while. But lack long term commitment.
3) They say little, they are coachable, they are committed, they produce, they struggle, they produce again, they struggle, they get better. they lead, they stay humble, they prevail.
Founder Greg Provenzano says it best, time will expose you or it will promote you.
Some people believe awards, recognition, and yes sometimes financial success defines a leader.
Not true.. awards for an individual in this industry are achieved through the efforts of many. They certainly don’t guarantee character and integrity are part of the equation.
A leader understands they are part of a larger process that produces success. WIN together!! That’s what I’m looking for in an individual when I sponsor them.
I can take ANYONE willing to work, willing to pay the price, willing to get better, willing to be coachable, willing to be committed, willing to set ego to the side for the greater good and help them prosper.
The most important part of the equation is they must be willing and be an active participant.
In my career finding just 5 people as I have described above that are as committed as I, can help create a lifetime of financial freedom for them and their family. Time to start looking 🙂
121 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
22 And the prophet came to the king of Israel, and said unto him, Go, strengthen thyself, and mark, and see what thou doest: for at the return of the year the king of Syria will come up against thee.23 And the servants of the king of Syria said unto him, Their gods are gods of the hills; therefore they were stronger than we; but let us fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they.
Where do you limit God? Where do you believe He can’t or won’t win for you? He is the God over your family but not over your finances, God over your relationships but not over your hurt, etc.
To me this is about control. Can God do better than me type of thinking. OF COURSE!! I am learning how to keep faith in areas that concern me; finances, relationships, attitude, etc. The Bible tells us to be happy with our wages and work as if we are doing unto God Himself. (Luke 3:14, Colossians 3:23, Ephesians 6:7) Those who are trusted with little are trusted with much.(Matthew 25:14) I am continuously bring brought to the realization that I am not in complete and total surrender to Jesus. I still worry. I still have doubts. God it’s Your will, not mine, to be done in and throughout my life. I am in deep prayer and thought about the steps it takes to let God have control over ALL areas in my life. Am I influencing the outcome of a particular situation. Does my words and my actions reflect Jesus, and the love of Jesus? Are others seeing God in me?
Holy Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ. I ask You Lord to help me to release to You ALL areas of my life. To let go of my own will and trust Yours. I seek and ask for Your help in my loneliness, my finances, raising my kids, and sticking to Your will. I need You Jesus. Thank You for loving me. Thank You for Your Blood. Thank You for my kids and all the blessing You have given me. All good things come from You Lord. I ask all these in the Holy and Righteous name of Jesus Christ. AMEN
24 When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. 25 You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David:“‘Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?26 The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed one.27 Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. 28 They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. 29 Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken.And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
With the situation I am the most worried about today, I can’t take care of and raise my children. I fear more not being in the Will of God.
If the worst thing does happen, then the way God could have a different or better plan for me, is to show He is in control of ALL THINGS. Keeping peace in my life. Working miracles and speaking to me by the Holy Spirit. Showing His POWER, mercy,grace, and love. Giving me more understanding, knowledge, wisdom, and discernment that ONLY He can give
In all my worries and concerns today, God could have the final word by bringing all things together for my good. By showing me how He is in every detail in my life.
Have you ever just woke up and next thing you know the day is gone? The older I get the faster days go by. I am fining that time is slipping away from me. I digress, what do you do with your time? I lay here in bed at 5:24 A.M. thinking I haven’t had the time to put up all the content I have for this blog, I haven’t had the time to study the Word of God in 2 days, my kids were being watched for 10 hrs yesterday, I don’t eat breakfast, I can continue for a while. The point is this is a tactic by the enemy. Work is so busy you have no time to breathe, kids throw tantrums, or someone calls, you get in an argument, etc. The thing to remember is the goal of the enemy: John 10:10 (KJV) 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
What satan seeks to take from you is your FAITH. Faith is the shield when it comes to the armor of God. (Ephesians 6:10-13) Going deeper, what is the purpose of a shield? It’s the first point of defence in an attck. It’s large and heavy. Thick so it can’t be easily broken through. If you lose your faith the battle is much harder, actually it always means a backslide with God. Why? Because without FAITH it’s IMPOSSIBLE to pleases God. (Hebrews 11:6) Think about where your time goes, and how much of it you give to God. Write out a schedule daily and purposefully allot time with Jesus. How will you ever get to know Him if you don’t talk to Him, don’t read about Him, don’t marvel at who He is and what He’s done for you in your life? How can you hear Him when he is speaking to you if you are too busy to be still and listen? (Psalms 46:10) God is a jealous God, He seeks your attention and conversation and time more than any person on this earth ever could. (Exodus 34:14) I’m a single mom of 2 and life can can easily over take my time. I find time for Jesus because He is the most important thing in my life. Chat with Him as you drive, or shower, or clean, etc. Pray in front of and with your family, especially kids. They are learning how to have a relationship with God by watching you. Read the Bible in front of them and with them. The greatest thing my daughter asks me is what scripture I have for her next to memorize. The Word of God is engraving to her heart and knowing the Word is the most POWERFUL to slay the enemy. It’s the sword in the armor of God. I have been so blessed to have had Shane. I was seeking the Truth about God, and so God heard me, divinely setting up our relationship. Allowing me to have Shane’s love, to be in love with, and learn from God’s chosen Profit. What better Master besides God Himself? Am uncommon teacher needs an uncommon student. Elijah and Elisha. (2 Kings)
