I seem to be having a focus on success at the moment, thats because I’ve been mentoring someone who has been very negative and now they are goal focused and wanting to achieve, no more than achieve they want to succeed at whatever they put their mind to.
You won’t succeed in life unless you are connected to the right people. And those who enable you to succeed won’t always come to you; usually you must go to them.
Why do you think there’s a newspaper seller on every corner and a soft drink machine on every hotel floor? Success won’t come knocking on your door; you’ve got to go and find it.
Jesus didn’t set up a throne in the middle of each town and say, ‘This is the only place you can meet with Me’. No, He went to the marketplace, to the boats of fishermen, to the synagogue, to the homes of people. He ‘…went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere’ (Luke 9:6KJV).
What is keeping you from reaching out to others? Fear of rejection?
Until your dream becomes more important to you than your fear of rejection, you will never succeed. Successful people dread rejection too; the difference is that they believe their goals are worth it.
There are two kinds of people in your life: those who already know you have something they need, and those who don’t know it yet. So start a ‘people list’. The law of relationship says that every person is only four people away from the person they need. This simply means that you know Bill, who knows Judy, who knows Charles, who knows the person you want to get to.
You are already networked. Follow the dots and you’ll get to your destiny. Success always begins somewhere, at some moment, with someone.
The secret is, you must reach out.
I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

For many, Easter holidays will be starting soon, and while the kids are overjoyed about their newfound freedom, many parents are not so overjoyed. Soon you may hear the two little words every parent dreads: “I’m booorrrrred!!!”
Some parents will put their kids in front of the TV or video games for a a couple of weeks of mind-numbing screen time. Other parents will dig deep into their wallets (or simply swipe the credit card) to send their kids to workshops and amusement parks and all different kinds of activities.
But Easter Holiday fun does not have to break the bank! In fact, with a little imagination and planning, you can have the most enjoyable and affordable break ever!
Today I want to give you a few ideas to get you started on the right track. The options truly are endless!
Turn off the TV! Enjoy the beautiful weather instead. Go on a walk, visit the zoo, go camping in the backyard, or go to the swimming pool. You’ll have more fun exploring and getting some fresh air than you would sat in front of the TV!
Find inexpensive and/or free activities in your area. Attend sporting events or concerts. Find local festivals, celebrations or neighbourhood parties. Hold an Easter BBQ. Invite the neighbours kids for a water balloon fight, create an obstacle course, or stage your own Backgarden Olympics.
Give the kids a chance to learn entrepreneurial skills by setting up a car boot or garage sale or starting a dog walking business. They can even help the neighbours with garden work or housecleaning. This is a great way to teach your kids how to start and run a business, as well as how to manage their time and money.
Spend quality time together as a family. Have a Family Game Night, cook dinners together or bake cup cakes with the kids. Spend time really listening to your kids and taking this time to learn more about what makes them tick. When they look back at their Easter Holidays, these are the things they will remember.
Are you catching what I’m saying?? There are tons of ways to be fun and adventurous without spending tons of money! I would love to know what your Easter Holiday plans are. How do you plan to make this a fun, memorable and affordable break? Leave your comments for me!
It would be a great idea to talk with your family about this, as well. Get their ideas. Find out what your kids would like to do during their break. (You may be surprised by what their idea of fun is!) Pass this message around to your friends, colleagues and people in your community in addition to Liking and Sharing today’s post! There’s always room for more ideas for inexpensive fun.
Thats it for today – start thinking & planning, set time aside to plan for the best for your family.
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?
Have an amazing day and stay blessed
Spring is here! I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but here in the UK it is just gorgeous! The weather is amazing, and everything is so green.
Have you done your spring cleaning yet? This is a great time to not only clean out your garage or attic, organize your home, and clean your car, but you can also save a lot of money and even make money in the process!
We are in the season of fresh and new things, so today I want to share a few fresh ideas with you to help you make the most of your spring cleaning:
Have a garage sale. As you’re cleaning your house, sorting through the clutter that has accumulated over the last year, and organizing the garage, use this opportunity to get rid of the things you no longer use. Have the kids grown out of their clothes and shoes? What about the boxes of “someday” clothes in the attic? (You know, the ones you will fit into again ‘someday’…) Do you have extra tools lying around that never get used? You can even get together with several other families and have a huge multi-family garage sale! This is a great way to make some quick cash AND rid your home of all the clutter.
Step away from the car wash! Steer clear of the automatic carwash places. You have soap, old rags, and a water hose at home – USE THEM! This is a fun thing for the whole family to do together. (Can anyone say, ‘water fight’???) Take advantage of the nice weather. Get outside and get some fresh air, and mark that task off your list at the same time.
Keep those coins! As you’re cleaning under the couch cushions and the bottom of the closets and behind the washer and dryer, hold on to those coins you find. You may think, “What’s a few pennies here and there?” but believe me, they add up! Cash in those coins and pay off some of your debt, or put them in your holiday fund.
Those may seem like 3 very small things that may not matter that much. But here’s what most people get wrong when it comes to money: They think they have to wait to pay off their debt until they can do it all at once. They think they have to make huge changes or no changes at all. They think the small changes or actions are insignificant, so they don’t make them.
But the TRUTH is, small, simple steps lead to big results. If you wait until you make more money or you win the lottery, or you can afford to pay off all your debt at once, you will stay broke and in debt the rest of your life.
So choose today to make the small changes. Choose to follow the tips I gave you today. And I would really love to hear your best spring cleaning tips as well – especially if they will help others save money or make money! You can leave your comments here.
It would also be great to spread this around your community. These days, everyone is looking for ways to save money, and these tips are some very easy ways to do that. Just forward this email, post this link on your social media platforms, and let’s help our families, colleagues, and neighbours get the most out of their spring cleaning this year!
