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)

 MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR YEAR

Some of you are CALLED by God TO SERVE others by building a business, write books, organize events and so on. Others are called to serve by using their skills within their current job. Whatever your Calling may be, I want to you realize that every single day of your life counts!

I don’t know how PRODUCTIVE you have been this year compared to last year. I don’t know how DEDICATED you have been this year compared to last year. But one thing I do know and that is that you can’t get this year back when you step into the next one!

I have A FEW QUESTIONS I would really like to ask you:

a. Why didn’t you do yet what God has asked you to do?
b. Why are you not obeying His voice?
c. When will you finally admit that the way you live your life now isn’t giving you the fulfillment you desire and deserve?
d. When will you stop torturing yourself as if you are a child of Satan (by sabotaging yourself) and start living as THE WINNER you are called to be, through Jesus Christ?

I know my questions may sound a bit confronting but these are questions I genuinely want to ask you as the Life Calling Strategist I am called to be! 

All I want (for you) is to see you experience the DEEPER JOY AND PEACE that comes from serving the people you are called to serve and to see you walk on this earth as THE LEADER you are called to be! 

Our brother Less Brown always says: “There is GREATNESS inside of you.” and I want to encourage you today by saying: “Step into it NOW!!”

Do You Believe In Your Calling?

As a mother of two children I know that we are willing to go the extra mile when it comes to helping our children. When they suddenly have a problem we quickly respond and immediately LOOK FOR WAYS to help them solve it ASAP.

It makes sense that we do that….we love them and we want things to go well for them.

But what about God? What about the help that He needs with the Calling He gave to you?

You are created for a purpose. He has shown you or told you want He wants you to do. He needs your help with it. Why aren’t you doing what you are supposed to do?

Some sisters are afraid to start because they don’t know how to, some feel insecure and don’t believe in themselves, some are scared of what other people might think or say about them, some believe they have too much to do and can’t find enough time to do the work, some are afraid to fail and doubt that God will help them out…..while others STEP OUT IN FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD!

I absolutely love working with these kind of women. They are an inspiration for their children, friends, family and others. But most of all, they are a blessing for the people God has called them to help. Some are authors, coaches, speakers, event organizers and others are directors, beauty professionals, community workers etc.

They choose to believe in their Calling and decide to overcome their fears and doubts!

WHAT WILL YOU DO??
“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own PURPOSE and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.” {2 Timothy 1:9}

Your Job, Career or Calling?

Last night I had a very important conversation with one of our Sisters in Christ who found herself in a dilemma. She had been working hard to move upward in the company where she works now but for some ‘strange’ reason nothing that she did really worked. But there was ONE INTERESTING THING in her story….God kept on talking to her in different ways about her Calling.

When she was in a church service, when she was having a conversation with someone or whenever she was listening to inspiring christian programs she clearly kept on hearing GOD’S VOICE saying: “Let it go!” But because of her fear of the unknown she didn’t respond to God’s voice.

Last night she couldn’t do it anymore….it was too much for her, it was too clear!

 

Get Clarity & Make a Decision

 I am THE LIFE CALLING STRATEGIST so of course I knew what was going on. I knew she was afraid to go for her Calling and that she was worried about financial security if she didn’t have/keep a full time job (or worked more than 24 hours a week).

It’s my Calling to help you overcome your fears and doubts so you can develop the right mindset when it comes to your Calling. So I told her what God showed me during our conversation. It immediately opened her eyes, changed her emotions and gave her the confidence to let go and FOCUS ON GOING FOR HER CALLING! Glory to God!

I know she had made the right decision because God had been talking to her already for months but her fear was stopping her from responding to God’s Voice.

 

NOT the only one

 I am sharing this short story with you because I know that she is NOT THE ONLY ONE who has this problem. God is speaking to you as well and I would love to have a conversation like this with you too.

If you recognize yourself in her story OR if you are ready to take the first steps towards your Calling, contact me asap so we can have a Sister/Brother To Sister conversation about this!

POWERFUL QUESTIONS To Get Closer To Your Calling

I love living a Purposeful Life! Every day is a new and fresh day….full of inspiration from God! The most inspiring thing, for me, is the adventurous part of it…Glory to God!

The other side of a Purposeful Life is the serious part where we are responsible for WHAT we do…every single day!

It doesn’t matter what God has Called you to do or how often in a week/month you are doing it, the bottom line is that a Purposeful Life (fulfilling your Calling) requires from you that you live life at a higher level….mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually!

 As the Calling Strategist my duty is to support you on your journey and to share different methods and techniques to help you follow and fulfill your Calling with CONFIDENCE, BOLDNESS AND SPEED!

The Questions

So, here are 3 powerful questions I want you to ask yourself today. These questions are meant to help you get more in line with your Calling:

1. Where do I sabotage myself on a daily basis? And what could I do instead or differently?

2. What do I already know I need to do, but am I just not implementing?

3. What do I need to do to be the best I can be (physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually)?

 I hope you can see that it is your duty to do something on a daily basis to keep your focus on your Calling, to keep taking action toward your Calling and to keep giving your best in faith!

Comfort Zone

Yesterday I made a video about  the topic “comfort zone” and put it on my YouTube Channel “Be A Winner Academy”. If you haven’t seen it yet you can click on the link  >> watch << and still have a look at it. And if it inspires you or motivates you, remember to share it , like it and subscribe to my channel so you can stay up to date!

pictureToday I want to talk about  it again! As I already mentioned, it doesn’t have to be difficult to step outside of your comfort zone when (not if) you take time to picture yourself BEING how or who you want to be, DOING what you want to do and HAVING what you want to have.

Successful people always takes time to do this! They know that it is necessary to do this because of the power that comes from this technique/method: it will give you the BOOST you need to take action. Yes, it effects your nerves, your body and your whole inner-system. This method helps you to COMPLETELY believe that you can be, do and have what you want or desire. 

In a way this method reminds me of the bible scripture: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” {Hebrews 11:1} The beauty of this technique is that it makes you AWARE of the fact that what you picture is already yours. Why do I say “fact”? Well, because faith is a power that brings things into existence (into reality). Hallelujah!!

 

results

When you take time, on a regular basis, to picture yourself the way you want to be, do what you love to do and have what you desire to have you will very soon notice that when you talk about a certain income….you will know that it’s already yours. And when you talk about a certain job position…..you will know that it is already yours. And when you talk about accomplishing a certain task….you will know that it has already been done by you.

Why does it work that way? Because everything starts on the INSIDE FIRST before it appears on the outside! You have to believe in something first before you will be able to take action (whether consciously or subconsciously) And that is how it always goes…..just think about everything you can see around you.

Everything around you is created by someone who decided to step outside of their comfort zone the way I described above. Now it’s your time to do the same.

Ask for what you want.

Asking for what you want is a skill we need to develop when we want to have more success in our lives. We are not created to do things alone or all by ourselves. Even when God, our Father, created the earth, and everything else in and around it, He didn’t do it all alone or all by Himself (Genesis 1:2 & verse 26). We need others to support us or to help us move forward. I am not saying that we can’t do anything without others, I am just saying that we need help sometimes.

Asking is one of the best and most important skill we can have. But unfortunately it’s one of the less developed quality we use to create our successes.

helpWhy do I say this? When I asked a small group of Christian women if they ask for help easily when they need it, most of them answered “No”. The reasons they gave me were all different but most of them didn’t tell me why. However, their answers didn’t really surprise me.

It seems that we often find it difficult to ask for what we want or need. What really holds us back are the limiting thoughts and believes we have about “asking for what we want”.

 

Here are two examples of limiting thoughts that hold us back from asking for help:

“If I ask for help, it’s a sign of weakness.”
This way of thinking can make you believe that you have to do it on your own. It can also make you think that something is wrong with you if you do ask for support or help.

“If I ask for help, I will have to do something back in return.”
This way of thinking brings a lot of pressure or worry. It makes you believe that you can’t get help for free or out of unconditional love. And if you know that you don’t want to give anything back in return, it can also make you feel guilty. A tough one is when you (believe that you) don’t have anything to give back and therefor don’t ask for the help or support you need.

>>Exercise: Write down your own thoughts & believes that limit you from asking for the help you need or want (in order to achieve your goal). Now read the scripture below and let go of all of them!

>>Inspirational ScriptureASK…and it will be given to you; SEEK……and you will find; KNOCK….and it will be opened to you.” {Matthew 7:7}

 

 Your intention is to win so you will have to ASK for what you want or need! Don’t waste your time worrying about what others might think about you or worrying about “losing control” when others help you. No, you need the help and your time is NOW!

So step out in faith and ASK for the support you want or need. Open up your heart to receive it and allow your life to change!

Discipline – Your Way To Success

Whenever I heard the word “discipline” it made me feel as if it was some kind of burden. It always sounded heavy in my ears, as if it meant something bad. And even though I already performed enough discipline in most of the areas of my life I still didn’t like hearing the word “discipline”. For some reason that word had a negative vibration for me…

In December 2015 I decided to do a course, which is developed by the millionaire Gerry Roberts, and in one of the modules he talked about this same topic “discipline”. The remarkable thing was that, for the first time in my life, I enjoyed reading about this principle. The reason for that was because he knew how to explain it in a very easy and inspiring way.

So now, thanks to him and his inspiration I have decided to share six simple steps to help you build up your own discipline-muscles. I have gone through this 6-step process myself and I am still enjoying the way it helps me. I know that if it helps me it will help you as well.

 

How To Become More Disciplined in 6-Steps

1. Define Your Purpose
In which area of your life would you like to become more disciplined? Just choose one.
Be clear about what it is you would like to stop doing or what it is you want to start doing regularly.

2. Find Role Models
Do you know someone who is disciplined in this area? It doesn’t have to be someone you know personally. It can be someone who is alive or dead. The point is to think of some people who you believe had control in this area. This step shows you that if they can do it, you can do it too.

3. See The Success
What are the benefits of becoming disciplined in this area? Make a list of all the (good) things you will feel, see, smell, taste, touch, have and do once you are strong in this area. Knowing this will inspire you to work hard(er).

4. Consider The Danger Zones
Because you are not used to being disciplined in this area it will be challenging for you sometimes. You will start off very good and strongly but before you know it you will feel tempted to go back to your old habits or stop doing your best. This is not strange. What will help you is to make a list, before you start, of all the potential situations, people and things that may cause you to fall or stop…and then make a list of how you will handle them.

5. Decide In Advance
Decide in advance what it is you need to do to accomplish the goal you have set in step 1. This step is about knowing exactly what to do and deciding to do it, no matter what! This is very powerful because it is not about how you feel. It is about realizing that your goal is worth the investment.

6. Have A Support Team
Think of someone you respect to help you become disciplined in this area. Find a person who will be strong enough to hold you accountable for the decisions you have made. Keep in contact with this person every week or every two weeks. This will force you to do what you say you will do.

I would like to know what you think about these steps. I want to know if you have done them and how it makes you feel now. You can send me an email to info@franciscapayne.com or you can go to my Facebook group (Christian Women SUCCESS Group) and share your experience there with me. I am looking forward to hear from you!

Change a habit within 21 days!

Changing a habit can be a though thing to do. It’s not impossible but it can definitively be a challenge.How often do you hear someone who is addicted to drugs or cigarette say that they will stop within 21 days? I don’t think you have ever heard that or that you have heard that often…..

However, it is possible to change any habit within 21 days WHEN you truly go for it……no matter what!

changeI can tell you that I know someone who has managed to do that. Well, not the drugs but the cigarette. And I truly believe that when you really really really want something and really really really push yourself towards it that you will be able to accomplish it! Even though it is not easy….

I remember the first day I bought nicotine patches to stop smoking cigarette.
I was nervous and I didn’t know how my body would react if I would use them. But before I bought them I first had a looooong conversation with the pharmacist because I wanted to understand how these things could really help me IF I would go for it 100%.
I didn’t want to buy the patches without having the guaranty that they would do their work!

That may sound funny but I believe that when I am willing to do my part whoever I am working with or whatever I am using has to do their/it’s part as well. It has to be a WIN-WIN situation! That’s how I think.

So when I understood how it worked I bought them and went home.

 

Have you ever heard of “massive” action?

No? Okay, allow me to show you what it looks like when you want to achieve an important goal and take “massive” action to achieve it!

Because I had decided to stop smoking cigarette and really wanted to give my best:
1. I took a jar, placed it in the middle of the table (in my living room) and made an appointment with myself that I would put all the money in it that I normally use to buy my cigarette. I did this every two or three days.

massive2. I also told my children what I had decided (to quite smoking) and asked them to support me. This meant that they could talk to me whenever they saw that I wasn’t sticking to my own decision or that I was doing something that didn’t help me to stop smoking.

Later that day I remembered that I had bought a little book a few years ago, from a author called Allen Carr. This man seemed to be an expert on helping people to quit smoking. So, I went to my room to search for the book and found it between all my other “self-help” books!

3.So, I decided to read this book whenever I would have a hard time “not smoking” or whenever it would feel too difficult to keep going.

4. And last but not least, I stood in front of the mirror every day to declare to myself that “I am living a healthy and smoke-free life”!

These four extra steps helped me to stop smoking cigarette WITHIN 21 days….I stopped on the 16th day! And now we are four years later! That’s what I call the power of taking “massive” action!

Conclusion: When you really really want to change a habit it is possible to change it within 21 days. All you need to do is to believe that you can do it and make some (extra) supporting choices (take massive action) to help you win!

If you want to brainstorm together about what kind of “massive action” you can take to help you to change your habit, just send me an email (support@franciscapayne.com) and book a 60 minutes Brainstorm Session with me. If I can do it, you can do it too! Just believe in yourself!
