Today I want to visit with you about seasons of famine and seasons of plenty. You see, in life… things happen. And occasionally they spin totally out of your control. You never know when you’ll have an emergency, a sudden left turn or get stuck without a job.
Sometimes you plant the right seeds, you till, you slave and you nourish those seeds. But if you plant during a season of drought you might not be seeing the crop you worked so hard for.
The only way to see yourself through these times, is to prepare for the season of famine. If you are gluttonous or a spoiled brat addicted to pleasures, you will not survive the famine! He who tills his land will have plenty of food, But he who follows empty pursuits will have poverty in plenty. (Proverbs 28:19)
Learn to get your body off the drugs of spending on pleasures and luxuries. You need to condition yourself to live a simple a life so you can accumulate wealth while others are going broke. This will also provide you with a reserve during the seasons of famine.
What season are you currently in? If you are in seasons of plenty:
- Work on paying off your debt NOW, while you can.
- Simplify your lifestyle, sell stuff you don’t need and live on less.
- Don’t spend every dime you make! If you spend every dollar you make, you are not being a good steward of your seeds. But you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.(Deuteronomy 8:18)
If you are in a season of famine:
- Don’t use credit cards to keep up a facade of financial stability. SIMPLIFY
- If you don’t have an income, get one now. Whiners will starve, do-ers will win (and eat).
- Take responsibility and make the needed changes. Stop blaming the economy, the job market, your parents or whatever!
- Grow your skills. Especially with people. Remember, opportunity comes from people and so does money.
- Stop looking for the easy way to succeed. It will lead you to a dead end!
- As soon as you start making money, don’t spend it! Refer to back to the tips for seasons of plenty.
Our first 10 years in business we made money and repeatedly lost it! After that we finally got smart and figured out how to make, keep and grow it.
It starts with killing your greed and gluttony. Great wealth is in the house of the righteous, But trouble is in the income of the wicked.(Proverbs 15:6) I’m not saying you can’t have fun or pleasures. I’m saying get off the drug of excess. You will massively decrease your stress once you simplify.
Don’t fear your season of famine, prepare for it! Share your thoughts with me on today’s message and don’t forget to Like and Share this with your friends or family. What season is your life in?

Without a change of course, there can be no change of destination. It’s such a powerful statement, and so true. Think about it. In life, we often expect a different destination, but we stay on the same road and we are shocked when we don’t arrive at the place we say we want to arrive.
Life, success, goals, and designing our lives is really not that difficult. . For example, if your going onto a training course in Monaco South of France, it’s as simple as booking a ticket. When you’re booking that plane ticket, the first questions you have to answer are where are you leaving from, where are you going, and what are the dates?
Obviously the method of transportation you chose was an airplane. So that plane has a course, and the course leads to the destination. Say you’re leaving from Heathrow airport, and you would like to leave on May 16th, and you’d like to fly home on May 20th.
So you’ll head to the airport at Heathrow and you board the airplane. That pilot has a course. He has a fully charted course that is going to lead the plane and the 250 passengers in the plane to the destination of Monaco.
Success truly is that simple. The problem is, we come from this lottery society that expects their destination to just fall out of the sky and land on them. If the destination is becoming debt free, they think they will get lucky someday, whether it’s winning the lottery or somehow the ‘debt fairy’ is going to come take the debt away. Or people have this idea of the destination of getting a promotion in their job or becoming the VP of a company someday or running a very successful business.
That’s the destination they want, but the course they chose does not lead to that destination. Whatever your desired destination, you have to look at your course to determine whether or not you will get there. If the destination is having a harmonious, passionate, fulfilling marriage and family life, you have to make sure your course will lead you there.
Let’s go back to the pilot. What did the pilot have to learn? He had to learn how to fly. He had to learn how the airplane works. He had to learn how to land that thing in case of an emergency. He has to know how to solve problems all along the way. There are so many skills he had to learn in order to chart the course, take the plane 35,000 feet in the air, and stay on course until he gets all of the passengers safely on the ground at their destination.
It’s the same for you with paying off your debt or growing in your business or career. It’s the same for you with succeeding in marriage and raising successful kids. It’s the same for your health, or even a goal of feeding orphans or volunteering your time with the elderly. We don’t have any problems picking a destination. The issue is charting the course.
You have to chart the course and evaluate – What skills do I need in order to get to my destination? The bottom line is, without a change of course, there can be not change of destination.
Most people have chosen a course that does not lead them to where they want to go. And then, of course, there are the people who have not even picked out a destination. There are others who have charted a course, but they ran into some thunderstorms and they quit. They quit when they ran out of skill instead of gaining more skills.
It takes skill to reach your destination, and you can learn those skills. You can push through the places where you have run out of skill or you don’t know how to solve a problem or you don’t know which direction to go. You can invest into more skill so you can learn how to solve that problem. Just like a pilot runs into a thunderstorm, but he has the skill to navigate through it and exactly what course to take in order to reach the destination.
So today I want you to evaluate your course. Will it get you where you want to go? If not, you either have to change your course or change your destination. And if you change your course, what skills do you need to successfully chart out your course and to get to your destination?
If this has helped you today, please do me a quick favor. There is somebody else you know who needs to hear this. There is someone you know who may be off course in their finances, business, career, or personal life, and they are searching for direction. So go ahead and pass this message along to them.

Today I want to talk to you about a mindset that is very common in the world of home business, and it is very limiting and very harmful to your future success.
You have probably encountered someone with this mindset, either in person or on Facebook. They talk about how horrible it is to have a job. You know, a J-O-B, ‘Just-Over-Broke’. These people try to recruit people into their business so they can finally ‘fire their boss’ and ‘break free from their 9-5 prison’. Many people use these phrases without even realizing what they’re even saying, or the result of the words they speak.
But today I want to pick this mindset apart and expose the truth about it. Because it really does set you up for failure, whether you have a job or career, or you are a business owner.
First, let’s talk about the business owner who tries to recruit people using these tactics. They say, “Hey, you still have a J-O-B? Come on, it’s time to fire your boss and start creating your own success, not your boss’s!”
But tell me, what kind of people do you think you will attract by motivating them by how much they hate their job and their boss, or by their feelings of being ‘trapped in a J-O-B’? You are painting a picture of being ungrateful and unhappy. You plant negative thoughts in their minds about their job or their boss, which then causes them to think and act negatively at work.
Because of the thoughts you have put into their minds, they are no longer prospering where they are planted. They are not working with excellence and diligence in their job because they now have a completely different perspective. They heard about a business opportunity, and suddenly their view of having a job totally changes. And if they can’t prosper where they’re planted when working at a job, what makes you think it will be any different when they get started in your business?
So you are not only sabotaging yourself here, by creating an attitude in that person that, quite frankly, you’re not going to want to work with even if they did decide to work with you in your business. But you are sabotaging the other person’s success in their job. It is not beneficial for you OR them. It does not help you build a business.
Not to mention, you reap what you sow. If you put those kinds of thoughts about their job into that person’s mind and they rip up their roots to move to your bright and shiny opportunity, what’s going to happen when someone else comes along and feeds them negative thoughts about you and your business and then offers them a different bright and shiny opportunity? They’re going to take it! And why? Because you reap what you sow.
I also want us to look at the other perspective – the employee. See, if you allow yourself to start listening to those phrases and speaking them, they will take root inside of your mind. It will cause you to hate your job, hate your boss, hate the people you work with, and hate that you have to work at a job 9-5.
But tell me, can you have that kind of attitude towards your 9-5 life, and then after-hours, turn around and have a good, positive mindset of an entrepreneur? NO! You can’t.
Not only that, but what is your work environment like when you have that mindset? You are just there sucking the air out of that place. People don’t like being around negative people. And guess what! When you hate where you are and what you’re doing, you are negative!
Please understand me when I say this – I am NOT bashing any industry or business. And I’m NOT saying you shouldn’t start a business, or even that you shouldn’t work a business full-time. I am simply exposing a very damaging mindset that has become very common, because I truly care about your success. I want to see you succeed.
Our culture tells us that if we’re not happy, we should move on to something else that will make us happy. It is because of that mindset that people are so easily tantalized and seduced into other bright shiny opportunities. It is because of that mindset that people do not have roots. They decide they don’t like what they’re doing, or ‘it’s not working’ or they get bored, so they uproot themselves and move on to something different without even giving themselves a chance to succeed in anything. The bottom line is, the deeper the roots, the bigger and better the fruit.
Now that you can see what this ‘J-O-B’ mindset really looks like and the results, you know it is not beneficial. It will not help you grow your business. It will actually hurt you and the people around you.
So set yourself up for success instead of failure today by not listening and giving into the mindset that says it’s a nuisance to have a job. Choose to work with diligence and excellence – both in skill and in attitude – and to prosper where you’re planted, whether that’s a business or a job. Learn to lead others properly and to form mutually beneficial relationships. Protect your future with honor instead of burning bridges. You will be amazed by how successful you will become!
I know you know a few (or several) people who have been affected by this mindset, either personally or by someone they know. It would be wise to go ahead and send this to them now. You can also be proactive and send this message to your employees/colleagues, as well as your business partners today. You can forward this email, or share this link on Facebook and Twitter.
That’s it for today, go out there and make the difference to your life, your family’s lives and to everyone you know and come across today
