A Support Group Is A Great Blessing

“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17)

There is so much wisdom in this verse because truth is, you can’t do it alone… No successful entrepreneur ever got anything extraordinary done without the talent and support of others. We need others and they need us.

Going for your Calling and becoming successful means facing unique challenges and working on the things you struggle with. This shouldn’t be a journey you constantly walk all by yourself.

No matter if you struggle with fear, low self-confidence, lack of self-discipline, self-doubt or procrastination, it is nothing that can’t be overcome- especially when you’re surrounded by positive and supportive people who can walk through your triumphs and struggles with you. This will not only give you the encouragement you need throughout the day, but it will also help you to stay engaged in your work and motivate you to succeed.

When you are surrounded by people who support you, you’ll be more likely to reach your God-inspired goals and walk in your Calling with confidence. You may also find that you can go farther than you ever thought possible on your own!

How are you using your talents to support others? How are the talents and supports of others helping you?

Change Your Current Situation

We all know the importance of setting and achieving your goals, but often we don’t consider the importance of reflecting on ‘what it is you need to let go of in order for you to move forward’.

It is something most of us don’t think about. We all declutter and spring clean our homes, wardrobes, etc., yet we rarely think to declutter the most important space we own. Our minds.

With this being said, think about the things that are not helping you and you’re still holding onto. Write it on a piece of paper or write it in your journal and decide to let go. Is it a self-limiting belief? Is it a bad habit? Is it the people you hang out with? Whatever it is… if it is not helping you move forward, you need to let it go!

It is the very act of letting go that will allow you to expand, move forward and ultimately become more successful in your business, as well as your life. Success only comes when you change your mindset, develop a winner’s mentality and when you get rid of all the things that don’t work for you- or stand in the way of you achieving your highest potential to walk boldly in your calling.

I can tell you from my own experience that, once you are honest with yourself and make a decision that something needs to go, it might seem hard at first, but you will also see how taking this step truly benefits your growth and helps you become more successful!

3 Easy Ways To Start Taking Responsibility

1. Do A Reality-Check
Sit down with a pen and paper and write down what is REALLY going on in your business (or life). Make a list of the things that are bothering you because they are not the way you want them to be.

For example: It can be the amount of income you have, the clients you are working with, the person who is helping you with your admin or maybe the business partner you have. In your personal life it can be anything from your your health to your home environment.

 

 

2. Choose The Most Simple Step Forward
You realize that things are not the way you desire them to be but because they are happening in your life at the moment you have to find a simple way to deal with them so it doesn’t bother you as much as it does. My suggestion is to step away from it emotionally by choosing to do something positive that only effects you.

For example: reduce the time you spend with those clients or business partners, bring a slight increase in your prices. In your personal life it can be anything from taking a 30 min walk (starting tomorrow) to drinking more green tea (losing weight) to painting one wall in your favorite color this week.

 

3. Respond To Positive Things Around You
In my book ‘7 Steps To Your Calling’ I go deeper into this but for now I want to inspire you to keep your eyes open when you take the two steps I just shared with you. When you make a simple but positive shift in your mindset or in your actions it will effect the world around you in a way that only God can explain in His Word.

In fact, when you open up yourself to be real and honest about the way your life is at the moment and you decide to take responsibility to change it, you will have to bring yourself in a positive mode so you can stay motivated and inspired. Whenever something good happens around you act upon it because positive energy creates more positive energy.

DEALING WITH FEARS & DOUBTS (DAY 4/7)

At the moment I experience life as one of the best experiences ever, even though it has it’s challenges. ..

I, personally, have lived with an intense FEAR of life itself from the age of 11 when my younger brother suddenly died. I couldn’t really understand why it was necessary for us to die. And what scared me the most was that it could suddenly happen. The fear I felt made me decide to not open up myself to fully live. But thank God, this changed 6 years ago!

I learned to have faith and to use it every day of my life. And that’s where my transformation started..

There is a video on my YouTube channel called 3 Reasons Why You Have To Overcome Your Fear. I would like you to watch it and then share your experience and thoughts on it with me.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

DEALING WITH FEARS & DOUBTS (Day 3/7)

In the past I always wanted to be friends with everybody. In fact, I even was.. I thought that was the best thing to do and that it also was a reflection of true love. But I was wrong..

The people I hung out with where at a low level in life (if I may call it that way) because most of them were smoking weed on a daily basis. And the ones who were not smoking weed at all were living life from a limited and scared level. They didn’t have big dreams or goals…they just took life the way it came. And I did the same…

When God inspired me to be in a more positive environment I started adapting how those people spoke, thought and behaved. This brought a positive shift in my life! 🙂

THE LESSON I LEARNED WAS: “Surround yourself with the right people. People who know more, people who achieve more and people who do better than you.”

Try to keep the people who encourage you close to you and always be open to receive feedback from them. Stay far away from individuals who are always pessimistic toward you, your business or your dreams.

DEALING WITH FEARS & DOUBTS (Day 2/7)

When we fear we always imagine a very bad outcome. We see ourselves failing INSTEAD OF WINNING because our minds are occupied with negative thoughts and images.

Today I want to inspire you to train yourself to PURPOSELY create a positive mental image THE MOMENT a negative one enters into your mind. I want you to learn to think the opposite on purpose.

In other words: Deliberately choose to replace a negative image with the image of what it is you truly want. (a positive outcome)

DEALING WITH FEARS & DOUBTS (1/7)

2019 just started a few months ago and even though a lot of people are excited about this new year most are also feeling fears and doubts. I think it would be very helpful to look at some different – simple but effective – ways you can deal with your fears and doubts.

THE FIRST thing I would really like you to understand from the start is that fear is SPIRITUAL. And because of that you need to deal with it in a spiritual way. What does that mean? Well, it means that in the first place you will have to use your SPIRITUAL TOOLS to deal with it.

You are a spirit yourself. You have a physical body to be able to walk on this earth but you are created by God, who is a spirit, and Who made you in His image and likeness (characteristics etc..).

Being aware of that should inspire you to PRAY AGAINST or SPEAK POWERFUL WORDS of faith against fearful thoughts or feelings.

The intention of fear is to keep you from fulfilling the destiny that God has on your life. Everyone who knows God, knows that He doesn’t have any bad plans for our lives but only good plans which includes good health, happiness, joy, strength and success.

When the spirit of fear comes against you (with fearful thoughts and feelings) command it to leave you, speak the truth about what God has said about you, your life and your abilities, fast if you want to and know that you already have the victory over it!!

God will show you what to do

I remember the moment when God revealed to me that I was called to be an author. It happened after I had prayed for 3 days..

I chose to pray because I stopped the business I was in (which didn’t glorify Him) and didn’t just want to start working somewhere without His permission. In fact I thought that there was a specific job He wanted me to apply for at the job agencies.

Woman in Gray and Black Zip-up Hoodie Raising Her Right HandBut it wasn’t like that at all…

Instead of telling me what kind of job I had to go for, He reminded me of a skill I discovered in my twenties. He reminded me that I used to write poetry and shared it with people around me (and they loved it!). Then He touched my heart and helped me to understand and see that it was one of the gifts He had given to me to use in this world.

Trust me if I say that I was totally surprised and didn’t expect that this would be His answer to my prayer. But nevertheless I trusted in His answer and decided to go for it.

I even asked God to help me use this writing skill since I have never taken it as serious as I had to. With His help I managed to write the content of my first book ‘Be A Winner’ in two weeks time. A few months after that I moved to the UK and managed to complete the whole book and self-publish it within 9 months.

Why am sharing this with you today?

I am sharing this with you because I want you to know that if He did it for me He will definitely do it for you too. We are His children. and He loves us. God is a wonderful Father and He will never leave us nor forsake us because He has a plan for our lives. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Open up your heart for Him today and ask for what you need.

Success Is A Choice

If you are just like me then you’ve also decided to be a winner in life and not a loser. Then you also made the choice to take full responsibility for the results in your life.

There are 5 things I do to stay on the winning side:
1. stand in front of the mirror and speak positive things about myself, my family and my future (emotional exercise).
2. push myself to complete my tasks and ask for help when it gets difficult or challenging. (mental exercise)
3. always pray for help, guidance and wisdom to overcome the obstacles on my path. (spiritual exercise)
4. refuse to hang around people who discourage me or constantly argue with me. (social exercise)
5. keep correcting myself when I make a mistake (sometimes step-by-step)

Interview for ‘Women Of Purpose’

A few weeks ago a wonderful woman of faith approached me on Instagram and asked me if she could interview me. Her name is Nadira Jansen and she has a YouTube Channel called ‘Women Of Purpose’.

She loves to interview women who walk in their life purpose so I said ‘Yes!’ to her immediately. She is a woman who also walks in her calling (and is planning to do more with God) so it absolutely inspired me to do this with her. Just like me she also understands that we are all blessed with talents and gifts to fulfill a divine purpose  here on earth so I want to invite you to watch the interview below. We had a lot of fun together!!

Note: My camera wasn’t really clear and I forgot to use a light but don’t let that stop you from watching the whole interview. It was really fun and it will definitely inspire you too!

Remember to Like the video, Share it with others and Subscribe to her channel if you love what she does.
