Can We Afford Not To?

earl nightingale

When I first started listening to motivational and personal growth tapes and CD’s in the late 90’s, I heard this quote from Earl Nightingale, “If a person will spend one hour a day on the same subject for five years, that person will be an expert on that subject.” I have heard that same quote several times since then. It is one of the quotes that has guided my life.

Imagine the implications of that statement. No matter who you are or where you are, if you will simply discover what it is that stirs up your enthusiasm and simply spend at least one hour a day on that for at least five years you will become an expert on that subject. If it is something you are truly passionate about, this should not be difficult.

best projectI recently finished a class for professional speakers. It was held almost three hours from my house (which made it about a 6-hour roundtrip). At the first session, the instructors seemed concerned I had to drive such a distance to attend this class. They were afraid I would miss too many sessions to get the full value of the class. I understood their concern but I assured them my passion and enthusiasm would be enough fuel to get me to the each session.

It was a 10-session course over a 6-month period. Not only did I make all 10 sessions but I was the only one in the class to make all 10 sessions! Was it practical? Probably not. Was it worth it to me anyway? Absolutely! It was a great course and I learned even more about what I love to do; fuel people’s enthusiasm through speaking.

well rounded personI invest most of my time into learning how to better help people climb to their God-given potential. I do not have a desire to be well-rounded.  Well-rounded people have no point. I desire to be a pointed person with a specific direction and I will do all I can to learn more and be better at what I do. Even if I have to drive almost six hours 10 times over a six-month period.

I have invested (I like that word better than “spent”) more than one hour a day for the past five years in learning how to best help myself and others climb to their God-given potential. I have invested several hours a day over the past 20 years doing this. And I am more passionate about it now than I have ever been!

In 2000, I asked my brand new wife if we could afford to purchase at least one audio a month on self-improvement. We were newly married, had very little money, and I ran a ministry where I was paid completely through donations. She looked at me and said, “Can we afford not to?” I love that woman for many reasons, but one important reason is that she understands the value of learning, growing, and self-improvement.

We still listen to audios and read books to improve ourselves in our areas of passion. We now have two kids who also love to read and learn more about the things they are very passionate about. We are a family that invests in what we are passionate about and good at so we can become even better.

What are you enthusiastic and passionate enough about that you can easily invest at least an hour a day for the next five years so you will become an expert? All of us have the God-given potential to be an expert in something. I have found mine…What is yours?

Overcoming failure

Relationships

Priority management

Our spiritual walk

Step One: If You Want to Find True Happiness, You Must Do Something

happy-7.pngSeveral years ago my wife and I went through a series of four classes at our church. Each 2-hour class was offered once a month. The classes were about the purpose and values of the church; how to grow spiritually; how to get involved in ministry at the church, and how to tell other people about Jesus.

Four months later, the teacher of that fourth class asked if we had taken all the other classes. We responded, “Yes.” He asked,  “Well, you know what you have to do now?” My wife and I looked at each other. Then responded, “No, what?” He smiled and said, “Somethin’”.

In a very simple way, that was extremely profound advice. If you want to find true happiness and joy, you must do ‘somethin’. Happiness will not just show up on your doorstep. Get out and take action.

Nothing happens until somethin’ happens. John Maxwell puts it this way, “What separates the developer of a successful dream from a mere daydreamer is committed action.” If you want to be happy, if you want to be successful, if you want to climb to your God-given potential you must get up and do somethin’.

happyIf you have a dream, write down some actions to take and then pick one to do right now. If you are going to make a significant change in your life it must be done immediately and enthusiastically. Do it now and do it with enthusiasm. If it is worth doing then why put it off? Do it now!

If you do not know what to do or maybe you do not have a specific dream to work towards, then just do something constructive. Volunteer with your church or community, go visit someone in the hospital, call someone you have not talked to in a long time. Do somethin’!

Happiness and joy will not find you, it must be sought out. However, if you only self-indulge to make yourself happy, you will never find happiness. If your actions are only for your benefit, then happiness will elude you. The more “others-centered” you become, the bigger difference you will make in your own joy. That is a principle and not a tactic.

So, step one in finding real happiness is “do something”. Tomorrow we will look at step two.  But first, do step one by writing down an action you will take and then get up and do it! DO IT NOW!!  Take a moment and send it to me using the form below…. I’d love to hear your first action step!

Start Your Journey On Your Knees

kneesMatthew 7:7-8 says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened” (NIV). Ask, seek, and knock is the 3-step process of reaching your God-given potential. Let’s take a look at what each one of these entails.

Ask
Pray about what God is wanting to do in your life. If you are going to climb to your God-given potential, it must start with talking to the One who created that potential in the first place. If you are going to climb that mountain, it must start on your knees.

Seek
Seek out the best ways to make it happen. Be creative. We serve a creative God. He created us in His image. Therefore, we must have some level of creativity as well. Let’s use it. Creatively seek out ways to get from where you are to where God wants you to be.

Knock
Knocking is taking action. All the prayer and creative seeking of God’s plan will not do any good if we do not act on that plan. Take action! Nothing happens until something happens. So, go make things happen!not done 2Ask God about climbing to your God-given potential, creatively seek out ways to make that happen, and then take enthusiastic action. If any changes are going to take place in your life it must be done immediately and enthusiastically. Start now and start inspired!

Tie the ask, seek, knock plan in with the three actions we have talked about this week of never settling, living with enthusiasm, and turning the world upside down and you will be well on your way to reaching your God-given potential.

Are you ready for this journey? Are you ready to join the revolution against the mundane into an enthusiastic life of God-sized proportions? Ask, seek, knock, never settle, live with enthusiasm, and turn the world upside down.

God is still wanting you to be a part of what he is doing in this world. It is not just about going to heaven when you die. It is also about bringing strong glimpses of heaven right here on earth by serving God in the way he has made you to serve him.

God is not done with you… so never settle, live with enthusiasm, and turn the world upside down… Here we go!

Enthusiasm – Set Yourself on Fire!

word geekI have a passion for words. I love to study the background of words. I guess you could call me a word geek.

I also realize the power in words. Words have the ability to build someone up or tear them down. The words we speak to ourselves have the power to stop us in our tracks or catapult us from goodness to greatness!

Enthusiasm is one of those powerful words. Norman Vincent Peale says that enthusiasm is the second most important word in the English language, only losing first place to the word love. Earlier this week, we discussed going from good to great. Yesterday we discussed if we are going to climb to our God-given potential we must never settle. Today, if you want to go from good to great and reach your God-given potential, you must live with enthusiasm.

Enthusiasm comes from two Greek words. “En” which means “in” and the “thus” is a form of the Greek word “Theo”. “Theo” means “God”. It is where we get our English word Theology which means a study of God. So, the word “enthusiasm” originally meant “God in you”. Or at the very least “inspired by God”.word geek 3

If you want to reach your God-given potential you must be inspired by God from within yourself. It must be a movement of God within your soul. Allow God to move in you and through you in an amazing way and he will take you to your God-given potential.

Ephesians 6:7 says, “Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people” (NLT). Whatever you are doing, do it as if you were doing it for God. What does that mean? Do it with enthusiasm, as if God were doing it in you and through you. If you cannot do what you do with enthusiasm, then one of two things must change for you to reach your God-given potential. You must either change your attitude or change what you do. It is that simple.

word geek 2Many of the revival preachers from the two Great Awakenings were so successful because of their enthusiasm. It was said of one, George Whitfield, “he would set himself on fire and people would come to watch him burn.” Not a literal fire, but a fire of passion and enthusiasm! That is what it takes to reach your God-given potential.

Plus, enthusiasm motivates others to help and be a part of what you are doing. When you “set yourself on fire” then other people will take notice and they will come to “watch you burn.” Are you on fire? Paul wrote this to the church in Corinth; “For I know your eagerness to help, and I have been boasting about it to the Macedonians, telling them that since last year you in Achaia were ready to give; and your enthusiasm has stirred most of them to action” (2 Corinthians 9:2, NIV). What had stirred others to action? Enthusiasm!

If you are going to make a change in your life it must be immediately and enthusiastically! Do it now and do it with enthusiasm. Set yourself on fire!

God is not done with you… so never settle and live with enthusiasm!

4 Questions To Ask Before Taking Action

“Everyone gets an idea in the shower, but the successful ones get out of the shower, dry off, and do something about it” (Nolan Bushnell, inventor of Atari).Image result for take action images

Successful people take action. People who reach their God-given potential take action. Not only do they take action they take focused action and they make corrections along the way.

There is a purpose behind every action they take. When that action no longer serves the purpose then they adjust the action to better serve the purpose.

Remember this acronym, FACE:

Focus: People who reach their God-given potential are focused. They have a specific idea of what they want to accomplish and they move in that direction.

Action: They take action! They are not ones to sit around and wonder what they should do next. They are people who are consistently getting up and going to work toward their God-given purpose.

Image result for change direction imagesCorrection: They take notice of what is working and what’s not and they make adjustments accordingly. These people know how to evaluate whether their actions are taking them closer to their God-given potential or farther away.

Example: One of the best ways to know what to do to reach your God-given potential is to find someone who is in a similar place to where you want to be and find out what they did to get there. Then do the same thing. This will speed up your process so you do not have to make all the mistakes yourself. You can learn from the mistakes of others.

Ask yourself these 4 questions as you journey toward your God-given potential:

  • What is God wanting me to accomplish? What is my God-given purpose?
  • What action do I need to take immediately to move me closer to that purpose or end?
  • What adjustments do I need to make to better serve my purpose?
  • Who is where I want to be and what can I learn from them

Jesus, The Ultimate Leader

If you really want to get the most out of life (and the afterlife) you must make a decision to follow Jesus.

Ephesians 1:11-12 says, “It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of his overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone” (The Message).

Laurie Beth Jones once announced to a group of business leaders that Jesus had followers that were so devout they would lay down their lives for him. Then she asked, “How many of you would like to have employees like that?” All the hands went up. Then she said, “There is a catch. You must go first.” All the hands went down.

Leadership-760x760

Sometimes it is easy to look at Jesus as the one who saves us, our friend, someone who is madly in love with us and Jesus is definitely all of these things. He is also our leader, our guide, our manager, CEO, boss, Lord! We cannot take one without the other and still get the most out of life.

Jesus wants what is best for you. Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10, NIV) The King James Version says, “…that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10) The Message translation says, “…so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of” (John 10:10).

Image result for john10:10 image

I follow Jesus because he loves me. All these other things are bonuses.  They are real bonuses that are available to all who will follow the one the Bible calls the Lord of Lords, I have referred to as The Ultimate Leader, and we all know as Jesus.

Can Life Coaches Help With Anxiety And Depression?

anxiety           Some would say that life coaching should not be used to overcome anxiety and/or depression. Others would claim that life coaching interventions can be used for mild to moderate anxiety or depression.

Most life coaches and other professionals in the behavioral sciences would agree that any clients experiencing anxiety or depression that are clinical or suicidal in nature should be handled by a licensed therapist. Therefore, a life coach must be willing to refer a client dealing with serious anxiety and depression issues.

David Rock and Linda J. Page (2009), in their book Coaching with the Brain in Mind, give some direction in how a life coach could work with someone experiencing anxiety or depression. In dealing with anxiety, Rock and Page (2009) encourage coaches to help clients get through their anxiety by modifying their beliefs to be more in line with their behavior.anxiety2

The concept of cognitive dissonance, first described by Leon Festinger (1919-1989), is when someone’s beliefs and actions seem to contradict. To have a client modify their beliefs to better fit their behavior would help them relieve the anxiety.

Coaches can also help reduce anxiety by helping them get clear about their goals.  This helps the client focus, reduce uncertainty, and restore calmness.

“We reduce anxiety and the sense of being overwhelmed that comes from the amygdala’s response to uncertainty. As the amygdala is calmed, cognitive functions such as working memory may be energized” (Rock & Page, 2009, p. 255). They also give the following suggestions when working with clients dealing with anxiety:

  • When anxiety strikes, your breathing may become shallow and quick. You can control the anxiety by controlling your breathing. Inhale slowly through your nose, breathing deeply from your belly, not your chest.
  • Stress will make your body tight and stiff. You can counter the effects of stress on body and brain if you relax your muscles.
  • Try positive imagery. Create an image that is relaxing, such as visualizing yourself on a secluded beach (2009, p. 340).

Depression Though depression can be more than a life coach is trained to work with, Rock and Page (2009) give this suggestion when coaching someone with mild to moderate depression:  Encourage the client to develop some level of exercise routine they are comfortable with doing.

According to Rock and Page, the United Press International did a study and reported “that half of patients suffering from long-term depression felt substantial improvement after a 10-day exercise program” (2009, p. 127). According to Rock and Page exercise also helps prevent depression from returning, releases endorphins which help people relax and feel better, and helps people’s thoughts organize themselves.

Life coaches must be careful not to work outside of their skillset. However, when working with mild to moderate anxiety and depression there are some interventions they can practice to help their clients overcome.

Focused Enthusiasm for Entrepreneurs

Finances are important when it comes to running a business.  I have had money and I haven’t had money, it is better to have it.

If you are not making money you will not be in business long. So, how does an entrepreneur reach their financial goals?

  1. Do something you are passionate about. entrepreneur 3
    Money is not a strong enough motivator to sustain you over the long haul. Make sure you are doing something you love.
  2. Get focused.
    Focus in on what it is you want to accomplish in your business.Put these together and you have focused enthusiasm.

Focused enthusiasm is the main ingredient for entrepreneurial success. Here are some tips on how to develop focused enthusiasm.

Ask yourself 4 questions:

  • How much money are you going to make in the next 12 months?

Get specific. Write down a specific number, not a range. How much money will you make in the next 12 months? It is difficult to focus on several different numbers, so get focused by being specific.

  • entrepreneur marketWho is your market?

Who needs or wants what you are offering? (They are out there, you just have to find them.)

Without a market, you do not have a business, you have a hobby. You have to find your market. There are some people who could care less about your product or service. Let’s be honest, probably most people do not care about your product or service. However, there are some who do care. There are some who will pay for what you have to offer. Find those people.

  • What are some creative ways to get your product to your market?

Use your imagination. The most powerful nation in the world is imagination!

How can you get your product or service to those who want it so badly they are willing to pay for it? You cannot answer this question until you identify your market. You will not discover the best way to reach your market until you get to know your market.

Be creative, use your imagination and think outside the… on second thought, just throw that box away! You have a brain, you do not need a box.

  • How much time and money you will invest into the business?

Decide if this is going to be full-time, part-time, or a hobby. Any option is fine as long as you are making the decision intentionally and not by default. Your financial goal will have to reflect your time investment. In other words, do not expect to make $100,000 this year if you are only investing four or five hours a week in your business.

The more money you want to make, the harder and smarter and longer hours you will have to work. Be intentional.

Remember, it takes focused enthusiasm to create success as an entrepreneur. Just being passionate will not a business make. You need to make some specific plans.

entrepreneur success

Get enthusiastic, get focused, get success!

Follow Your God-Given Dreams

Helen Keller was once asked if there was anything she could think of that was worse than being blind.helen keller.png
John Maxwell defines vision as “a picture of the future that stirs up passion within you.” Do you have vision? Do you have a picture of your future that stirs up a passion within you? The best way to predict the future is to create it.

futureWhat do you believe God’s dream or vision for you may be? Through prayer, reflection, feedback from those who know you best, Bible reading, you can discover your passion. God created you for a reason, for a purpose, for a dream. God has a dream he wants to accomplish through you.

Are you up for the challenge? It will not be easy. It will not always be smooth, but it is where you will live your life to the fullest extent. If you want to climb to your God-given potential, you must discover what God’s dream is for you and then pursue it.

Bruce Wilkinson says, “If you do not follow your God-given dream something significantly important will not happen.”

Several years ago the Statler Brothers had a song called “The Class of ‘57” Some of the lyrics went like this:

class 1957Tommy’s selling used cars, Nancy’s fixing hair
Harvey runs a grocery store and Margaret doesn’t care
Jerry drives a truck for Sears and Charlotte’s on the make
And Paul sells life insurance and part-time real estate.

And the class of ’57 had its dreams
Oh, we all thought we’d change the world with our great works and deeds
Or maybe we just thought the world would change to fit our needs
The class of ’57 had its dreams.

Betty runs a trailer park, Jan sells Tupperware
Randy’s in an insane ward and Mary’s on welfare
Charlie took a job with Ford and Joe took Freddie’s wife
Charlotte took a millionaire and Freddie took his life.

And the class of ’57 had its dreams
But living life day to day is never like it seems
Things get complicated when you get past eighteen
But the class of ’57 had its dreams
Oh, the class of ’57 had its dreams.

(Songwriters DDN REID, HAROLD REID Published by Lyrics © BMG RIGHTS MANAGEMENT US, LLC)

dreams lostMost of the time we do not need to discover our dreams. We typically know what they are, we have just buried them somewhere inside our mind and soul where we do not see them anymore.

Pull them out! Re-discover why God put you on this planet. Do not let the realities of life steal your God-given dreams.

What are some of your God-given dreams?
