2012…A Year Of ACTION!

I’ve decided…2012 is going to be my best year yet! I’m going to take my own “action” in 2012, and then let go and let God take His “A.C.T.I.O.N.” on my behalf. It’s a partnership, and I have to:
Allow Christ To Influence Obstacles Now!!! (A.C.T.I.O.N.)
Allow Christ To Interrupt Obstacles Now!!!
Allow Christ To Influence Others Now!!!
Allow Christ To Interrupt Ojections Now!!!
Answers Come That Influence Our Next (Chapter)!!!

What does ACTION mean to you? Whatever it is…keep this in mind as you go on your journey of 2012 and TAKE ACTION!!!

My New Favorite Quote…

This quote really spoke to me and helped me to view my desire to be liked and to please others in a whole new light. As I heard once, someone’s opinion is just that…and opinion. Only I can give it meaning. So true! Well, enjoy and I hope it speaks to you as well!
“Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.” ~ Miguel Ruiz

Let’s face it, life is fast-paced! We, the people, have busy schedules that determine the shortness of our days. There is work, school, soccer practice, Bible study, and then dinner is somewhere in the middle before bedtime. Routine doctor appointments are not a high priority until symptoms drive you or your loved ones to the waiting room.

After sitting on the examination table, getting swabbed with cotton, lots of questions and tests, many are diagnosed with fighting one common disease: Stress.

Nearly half of all Americans admit stress affects their lives. The other 50% of Americans usually test positive for abnormal levels of anxiety. In fact, many Americans who feel comfortable coping with their worries have been reported to have the same level of stress as if they were standing face to face with a roaring lion. Facts and figures agree: Stress, when undiagnosed and untreated, becomes a deadly disease.

Is your Christian congregation giving you practical ways to reduce the stress levels in your life? Is your local body of believers decreasing, or increasing, your stress? If your weekly fellowship separates every day life from spiritual principles by glazing over relevant topics, like stress and how to eliminate it, then listen as Dani boldly shares how!

What do your stress test results show?

It is time for you to schedule an appointment and have an evaluation. Listen to this Sunday Morning Spiritual Equipping Radio Show to take your stress test. Find out if any adjustments are necessary in your life. What are you waiting for? Your change starts here!

5 Questions To Help You Get Clear About Your Vision!

Are there areas where you need clarity? Are you procrastinating because you don’t have a clear vision or direction? Whatever your dilemma may be, the following questions could clarify your agenda. Use these questions to guide you towards not only a clearer vision, but also towards action:

1. What about your vision is unclear right now?
Pinpoint exactly what needs clarity. Don’t get distracted by the big picture. Instead, take a step by step view of the situation and ask yourself, “Where am I lacking clarity and direction the most?”

2. What could I do right now to give me a clear mind and a fresh new perspective?
Wanting clarity is one thing, but forcing your mind to come up with a clear vision at a moment’s notice may be another. Sometimes you need to step away, give it time, or do something else for awhile. Don’t procrastinate, but instead…start doing some research to get ideas that develop you vision, or go for a walk/jog to quite your mind and allow new thoughts to arise. Do whatever you can to get your creative thoughts flowing if you ever feel lost or stuck.

3. Determine exactly what it is that you are aiming for?
Once you’ve cleared your mind and determined your vision, now’s the time to get clear about what you’re aiming for. Write it down. Paint a vivid picture. Create a Vision Board (example of one above) and put it in a visible place in your home so you can have a constant reminder of the end result. This vision will get you back on track when you find yourself going off course. It helps you to “keep the main thing, the main thing.”

4. Who do you need in your corner to help you get there?
Identify the people (or even things) that will help you get where you are trying to go. Seek advice. Connect with those people who have already met your goal and get insight/information from them on how they got there. Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it.

5. ACTION…What’s your next step?
Knowing where you’re going without taking action gets you nowhere. You need to start taking steps and moving in the right direction. Identify your next step and then…take it!

What You Are Going Through Is Building You!

My Pastor shared a wonderful story about a little boy and a butterfly. As you read this story, remember there is a purpose behind the struggle…

Along a dusty road in India there sat a beggar who sold cocoons. A young boy watched him day after day, and the beggar finally beckoned to him.

“Do you know what beauty lies within this cocoon? I will give you one so you might see for yourself. But you must be careful not to handle the cocoon until the butterfly comes out.”

The boy was enchanted with the gift and hurried home to await the butterfly. He laid the cocoon on the floor and became aware of a curious thing. The butterfly was beating its fragile wings against the hard wall of the cocoon until it appeared it would surely perish, before it could break the unyielding prison. Wanting only to help, the boy swiftly, but gently pried the cocoon open.

He then helped out the butterfly that lived within and threw it up into the air to help it to fly, but the butterfly fell to the ground. He threw it in the air again and again and again; but each time, the butterfly didn’t take flight. Later, the butterfly grew extremely weak and died. The young boy, with tears in his eyes went back to the beggar and asked what had happened. The beggar explained to the boy “In order for the butterfly to grow strong enough to live and take flight, it is necessary that he beat his wings against the walls of his cocoon. Only by this struggle can his wings become beautiful and durable to withstand the winds of life and to take flight. When you denied him that struggle, you took away from him his only chance of survival.”

What a powerful story!
The story of the boy and the butterfly may speak to us on a variety of levels. Are you someone who has gone through the “valley” more times than you care to remember? Do you question why you have had to go through the struggles that you’ve faced in life? If so, realize that what you might have seen as a struggle and “setback” might have actually been a blessing and “set up” to all that is awaiting you!

On the other hand, are you someone who “does it all” for others? Of course no one wants to see the ones they love struggle; however if you make things too easy for them every time they have a hurdle in their way, then you’re unconsciously denying them the opportunity (like you and I had) to learn through those experiences and to build the internal strength to become the beautiful person they were created to be!

My prayer for you is this:
May the walls of your cocoon be just thick enough to allow you to struggle, and last just long enough for you to emerge as the beautiful person that God created you to be!

The wealthiest place in the world…

The wealthiest place in the world is the cemetery. There lie buried companies, inventions & best-selling books that were NEVER created. In the cemetery is buried the greatest treasure of untapped potential. There is a treasure in you that must come out. It is your potential. Don’t go to the grave WITH YOUR TRESURE STILL WITHIN YOU. – Dr Myles Munroe

The enemy is busy trying to keep you from your treasure. Don’t give in & don’t give up. If you are not living up to your potential & there is more that you can offer to the world…then you know it, and feel it deep down inside. What are you going to do about it? Don’t you hear that voice speaking to you and yearning for you to do more? Why are you ignoring it? That “voice” inside me is why I decided to do 5LINX. I’m not doing 5LINX just to help people save and make money. I am doing 5LINX because it is a vehicle…a way for me to bring in additional income (on my own time) without working a part time j.o.b. (just over broke). A j.o.b. may be the very thing that is keeping you from your dreams and your potential; because you don’t have the time, energy or even finances to do what you TRULY want to do…or to discover your TRUE PURPOSE.

Because I chose to diversify my income, it is allowing me to have the money to finance my dreams and my potential! The finances to make sure that my treasure won’t die with me. When money as an issue is out of the way, THEN what would be your next excuse? Hopefully you won’t have one. So whatever you do, listen to that voice inside you that desires more, and do something about it. If not this WHAT? If not you, WHO? If not now, then WHEN would be the right time to make a change? It’s YOUR life, and the choice is yours. Do WHATEVER it takes to make sure your treasure doesn’t die with you. The rest of us are waiting to be blessed by what it is that YOU have to offer!

Choice or Chance???

Are you trying to become successful by CHOICE or by CHANCE? So many people have great goals and aspirations for their lives, however, when it comes down to the ACTION that needs to go behind the desire; many people fall short. Why is that? Why do we want success, but we want the easy way to it? Of course, SUCCESS can mean different things to different people. Success could mean Financial Stability to some or it could be about having strong Relationships to others. It could also be about someone’s Spiritual journey, Educational accomplishments or Fame, Status or Title…just to name a few. Regardless of what success means to you, why do so many people choose to settle for average and take the easy way out? Why do we want the PAYOFF without the PREPARATION? The RAISE without the possible REJECTION? The SUCCESS without the SWEAT? Or the FUNDS without stepping out on the FAITH we need to get it done? Everyone’s answers and reasons are different, but the point still remains…Is it by CHOICE or is it by CHANCE that you will reach YOUR true level of SUCCESS?

Whatever you do- DON’T take your success lightly. Don’t take a “gamble” and treat it like playing the lottery, roulette or throwing dice on a craps table. Make a CHOICE TODAY that you are going to put dedicated and consistent action behind your desire for SUCCESS. Why? Because when something is GIVEN to you (like a car, a degree, a lot of money, etc) it doesn’t mean nearly as much to you as it does when you have WORKED for it! Put in the WORK and your SUCCESS will be right around the corner!

There’s So Much To Be Thankful For!

2009 is coming to an end, and as I sit back and think about all that has happened…both good and bad…I realize that all in all, 2009 was a year of growth for me, as it probably has been for many of you. With each new experience and every new challenge, we not only gain insight and skills, but we also grow stronger. No matter what happens to us, only we can determine how we react to it. Will we let it frustrate us, upset us or make us bitter…or will we learn from the experience, grow and make sure we don’t repeat it again…especially if it’s something that is within our control. We all should be thankful for each and every trial, tribulation, success and joyful moment. Life is too short to let what happen to you to control you. It may be hard to let it go, but for every disappointment, think of something that you are grateful for. Or, think of something you do well. Or think of a success you have had. Or…you get the picture.

Having an “attitude of gratitude” means so much to your overall outlook on life. Can’t think of anything to be thankful for? I’ll give you 10 that probably apply to you…
1. You woke up today
2. You can see this
3. You can hear
4. You can taste your food
5. You actually have food to eat
6. You are functioning and in your right mind
7. You can talk
8. You can walk
9. At least one person in this world loves you
10. If nothing else, God loves you!

So as you can see, I came up with 10 things in less than 2 minutes. Just imagine if you spent 3 minutes or 5 minutes listing all the things that you are thankful for! I hope you take a moment to sit back, and realize all of the things (no matter what you are going through) that you can be thankful for!

Is it really “Luck”…or something else?

Is there really such a thing called “luck”? Do you feel that you are a lucky person in most situations, or are you someone who feels that luck just never seems to find you? Regardless of how you feel about the word “luck”, I would challenge you to think about it in a different way. Is it really luck, or is it the way you plan in advance for the opportunity that presents itself to you?

Luck, in many cases, is when planning meets opportunity. Even in those instances when people say “You are so lucky”, is it truly luck, or was it just that you had the opportunity to be in the right place at the right time (or not in that place at all in the wrong time). Was it luck or God’s blessing upon your life? Was it luck or you being properly prepared for the situation when it presented itself? Maybe you remembered something from a self defense class at just the right moment. Maybe because you took the defensive driving course, you knew exactly what to do when you car went out of control. Maybe because you did your yearly check up on time, your doctor was able to catch the illness early enough, and now you are free of the illness all together. Or maybe it was God blessing you with his Grace and/or Mercy that saw you through.

Luck, in my opinion is all relative. People who feel that nothing goes their way, typically have the feeling that they are simply unlucky by nature…and people who feel that everything goes their way, typically feel more lucky. As they say, what you think about, you bring about! “Lucky” people seem to somehow, be able to look at things differently and typically believe with all their heart that a way will be made out of no way.

So, is it really “luck”, or something else? You decide. But as you are making your decision, keep in mind “The 6 P’s”- -Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance!
