Prayer is such a simple thing to do, just let God know what you need. Don’t beg he knows, and then be grateful you already have an answer. Stay in faith, this is what fuels your prayer. Let it go to God then do your part and trust in God even when you see NO immediate results.

The Lord may have to move things around in your life to give him a chance. Never lose faith; this is key!

Unwavering Faith, Do the Work, Happiness, Joy, a Beautiful Life Awaits

“Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.”–Saint Augustine

Learning to give our all in the endeavors of life will carry us through the tumultuous waters that rock our lives boat. When trials and tribulations challenge our experience, we must buckle down in faith.

pray, prayer, faith

Learning to trust God in total is a challenge. Faith or what we all understand blind faith goes against what most of us learn in life. Life is about to show me first, then I will believe you. How many times have you heard that in your life?

The quote rings so true. If you learn to trust God, stay in faith, do the work, life will bloom for those that believe. Somedays for me, it’s a challenge, but I make this my mantra every day to stay in faith.

Take time right now to let God know you’re grateful for his presence in your life!

 

Believe with Unwavering Faith

Believe!

 If you don’t have belief in what you’re doing, then stagnation is the result you will achieve. We all must believe in our hearts that which we seek. Peace, prosperity, oneness, or any number of desires your heart has.

Learning to retrain our brain to see the outcome of our belief. Believe that what you desire is already apart of your life experience. Be grateful that you have it! Don’t worry about how to focus on the end game result. See in your mind’s eye that which you want. Be grateful for the wisdom, knowledge, and open doors that are yet to come. Don’t let “I don’t have this or that; this will never work” attitude. Get the HOW out of your head. Doors will open in good time when we believe in what we do, work diligently daily towards that outcome of success.

Belief takes unwavering faith!

Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”—Martin Luther King, Jr.

To Big for Your Britches

Remembering to stay connected to God when things do go your way. To keep your blessings moving forward, you can’t stop going to God and expect everything to remain in place. A mistake I made that slowed my progress, so I have had to hit my knees and let God know I have not forgotten myself.

My grandmother called this “being too big for your britches.”

When blessings come, old habits can creep back into our lives. Understanding this will make your walk, your path much smoother. For me, I even was called out by a friend that my language offended a dear person to me. A person whom I would never intentionally want to hurt with a potty mouth. Old habits die hard.

Stay Humble

Learning from this was tough medicine to swallow. So begins my repentance to God. You should as well if you’ve strayed from the path. Stay on the road with God. A full-time, not pick and choose time process. Today I feel more back in tune with the Lord. My heart is more at peace.

I want the promises that the Bible says are mine. When I began this journey, it was about not losing anymore. That there had to be a better way to live than the trajectory my life was advancing. Terrible place, lost relationships, financial problems, and despair. All of a sudden God blesses me in significant ways, and I take my eye off the ball and get hit right in the head with a fastball.

With a sincere heart and prayer. Will pass and learn what not to do embedded deep in my heart. If you’ve suffered from this because you to went off the beaten path, God will happily accept you back in his good grace. Do what I’ve done, get on your knees, and get back in God’s good grace. Never allow yourself not to be humble.

Can You Sell, Sales?

This article is for folks that don’t think they can sell. In fact, you detest the ground a salesman walks on. You can’t stand anything about the selling process.

Well here I come in my plaid pants, white shoes and belt to teach you something about sales. Okay if you’re still reading, I’m joking. However, I am not kidding about helping you learn some powers of persuasion that you can use to sell anyone on an idea, a product, or just yourself. All in a good, healthy, and fun way. Nothing crazy here!sales,selling,business

We all at some point in time need to be able to get others to like what we have. The what we have does not matter remember that. It’s getting our point across in a fun and engaging way. So whatever it is you want to swing your way. Buckle your belt and let’s get rolling.

Selling is incredibly simple. You need to convince the person or persons you’re trying to pitch that what you have will change the lives of those who use it. If someone believes that they can’t live without what you have, you don’t have to sell. You just have to push the pen in front of them, sign here.

This process takes a passion for what you’re offering. Understanding the product, service better than what the average Joe does. If you know how to show someone how what you have is life-changing, it’s not sales. Getting someone to understand that a tire will change their life, that takes real skill. Selling a tire is just selling a tire. If you can demonstrate how this set of tires will improve your driving experience, create value around that. You have to understand every single aspect of a tire, from the raw materials, manufacturing process, testing, life, safety, and quality.

Then you need to formulate a story that does not put customers to sleep. Storytelling (NO not lying) authentic storytelling. You need to be the person that National News organizations would call for a professional opinion. If you can tell the story that would rival a James Patterson Novel, then you will be well on your way to benefiting your customers in a whole new way.

Compelling customers, NOT SELLING CUSTOMERS. The big difference with a better, long-lasting result. We have to get passed, turn them, and burn them attitude towards sales. Why do you think advertisers use ways to make you feel special if you use this product or that? The persuasion is better than “hey, this is crazy Bob’s widget sales right here in downtown USA we’re dealing, slashing prices, we won’t be undersold.” ARRRGGGG gross no way it’s junk!

Telling a story that touches my soul. Figure out how what you do changes lives. I hear everyone saying, “okay Mr. Big Time, how do I convince someone that my tomatoes are going to change my life, their tomato’s for goodness sake.” My answer is to stop whining and let’s figure it out! Together!

Yes, this will take some real thought and research. You need to dive in and learn everything from why the tomato seed you use is far better than your competition, that the dirt where your tomatoes are grown makes a difference. That the packaging, the shipping of your vegetables is done in ways that genuinely preserve the end product. Do you see my point yet?

Think about it for a good while. Understand your process from the cradle to the grave. Learn it like you, your life depended on it. That if you miss one small detail, it could be fatal. The story has to move people to action. It has to run me so that I want to buy it. I will happily pay more for something I see the life-changing value. If you knew in your heart that what your purchasing was going to increase the benefit of your life in some significant way, would you put a price tag on that? NO, you would look for a way to BUY it. I would not need to sell you anything because you want to have it far exceeds any other emotion.

Telling a story about what products or services do to change the lives of those using it. If you can master a story worthy of inspiring the soul. All the sales skills in the world won’t matter. The customer will want to buy, you won’t have to sell a thing.

Rehearse the story until it flows from your lips like a river flows through a meadow. It has to come from your heart. Otherwise, it sounds like a canned presentation, and you lose. Obviously, if you have a product or service you perform the passion is there. So the story will come if you allow it to. Meditate on it if you have to. Take notes, organize your thoughts. Read your story aloud, when you do so, then you will hear how it sounds. Great way to edit!

When you can master the art of storytelling, you won’t need a bunch of fancy sales mumbo-jumbo. You have to ask for the sale, but you won’t have to what I call sales to beg someone to buy from you. They will already see the value from your story, the rest is just signing here folks.
