Happy, Blessed & Prosperous New Year, dear ones!
I'm putting another annual planner to rest this week. It's amazing how fast time goes by. It seems it takes forever to get to 16, 18 and 21 years old but then when you hit 30 everything's accelerated and there's no stopping it.
I'm excited for 2016. Are you? Or are you dreading it? I hope you're not dreading it but I understand if you may be. The last quarter of 2015 was rough for a lot of folks. Myself included. I had to fight through some ugliness to secure the vision for 2016. If you've been struggling in anything you have to do the same - press through and grab hold of the light shining through. No matter how small the glimmer of that light, if you fully take hold of it you have enough to keep you going until breakthrough comes. It will come. I'm a witness.
As soon as you get the vision for the days head, be sure to write it down. Seeing it in your mind's eye is always the first step to achievement and attainment but don't stop there. Write it down. Rehearse it by speaking it out. Share your vision with others. Do the necessary work.
I dedicated the last 40 days of 2015 to put the tent pegs in the ground for the personal territory I'm taking in 2016. Throughout the upcoming year I'll share parts of my process so you can learn from the supernatural strategies I implemented and gleaned during that time. I hope that'll encourage you to keep moving forward in all you've endeavored to do.
In the email I sent out to subscribers this week there's a coupon for 50% OFF mentoring packages and a payment plan option. Also, I'd like to invite you to register for the FREE Prepare to Launch 2016 webinar, January 15 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. EST hosted by Linda Dominique Grosvenor-Holland The Grow Your Dreams Midwife™.
The best is yet to come.
I'm a single mother and former elementary school teacher so when I began my professional mentoring business I focused on mentoring single parents and young children. Watch this video and see if you're serving the right tribe for your current season of life.
No one likes the pit. I know I didn't. However ... the pit is a great thing. Really it is.
You finally come to the place where you realize you need help, must ask for it and receive it. It's desperation. You're fully drowning and need a lifeline or you can't continue. That is a wonderful place to be.
YOU took yourself to a place of failure. Linking up with the wrong crowd - naturally and spiritually - contributed to your downfall, but it was your decisions that put the spade into the ground and pulled the dirt up and out of the hole every time. I know from firsthand experience so no ... I am not being harsh. I'm telling you the truth and the truth sets you free. I'm a witness.
The pit is the perfect place for those in a cycle of failure because you have to look up to see the light of day. It's the revelation that you're so low that the next stop for you is looking like death - and you may not come back from that. It's being at the end of yourself and that's your first marker on the path to deliverance.
Cycles of failure are hard to get out of until you admit you need help. They're like being in a whirlwind going around and around, with everything up in the air and you having no idea when it'll all come crashing down.
How do you know when you're in a cycle of failure? Look back over your life in chunks of three, six, nine and 12 months to identify areas of decrease. If one area shows up in two or more periods, it's an indicator that your current process is ineffective. Another way is to look at your goals. If you're consistently not meeting your daily, weekly and monthly goals something needs to change. Successful individuals and organizations regularly monitor their productivity. If you incorporate this process into your life or business, you'll begin to experience an upswing.
If you're at the end of yourself and are in the pit or have identified cycles of failure that you need to overcome, schedule a call or book a session today. I have strategies that will put you on track to living your destiny.
I know myself as a person and as a teacher and mentor. I know what I can and can't do. I know what I'm willing to do and not do.
I explained before that mentees need to know what they want before I'll even schedule a phone call with them. That's reasonable. Logical. It's a common business and life practice that successful individuals employ. When they know what they want, I assist them in mapping out a path to get to the Promised Land.
I recently met someone interested in mentoring and I determined after some communication they weren't ready for what I do. In my thinking that was the end of the chain of emails, but they asked why I believed that. Man ... that could speak about relationships. You know how one person keeps charging forward, attempting to establish something that the other doesn't deem possible.
Access to a connection is a test. One of my tests for potential clients ends as soon as they fail to follow free wisdom and instructions given. I believe strongly in the principle that if you're faithful in little, you can be trusted with greater. That being said if you can't do the simple, you're not ready for those uncomfortable changes that save lives. That's what I do. I save lives. I'm not the Savior, but I give the wisdom that stops mentees from perishing for lacking it.
This is part of my life's work because a few years ago I was one perishing for lack of knowledge. I had to submit my life to four different mentors in order to be lifted out of the pit of despair. I submitted, listened and learned well enough that now I'm pulling others out.
If you're ready to turn your life around - and I mean sick and tired of being sick and tired - schedule a call today. If you're so ready that you refuse to live another day in the mess you're in, book a package and begin to elevate.
