Entrepreneurship and Bowel

more courage-less fear

Patience and Consistency

 

Entrepreneurship is no different than a bowel movement. Some times you feel like going, you sit, waiting and nothing happens. The longer you sit, you become impatient; not wanting to sit any longer, and when you decide to finally get up, it happens.

No different than running your own business, practicing patience while pushing until it happens.

If you’re feeling as though something is about to happen, it is!

“Don’t give up”

 

Relationships: Love Others By loving Yourself First

more courage-less fear

Touching-lips-regular-relat

Relationships are fragile; they require work, and many times a simple situation can disrupt the balance that keeps them functional. When things get heated up, standing by the water is oftentimes the best way to avoid catastrophes. As the old saying goes, “if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”.

I believe many people are in relationships that are burning out of control. Do you sometimes feel as though both ends are charred along with a feeling of giving up? Do you ask yourself what’s the use of going through all this time and time again? This is a question many asked yesterday, today, and will probably be asking tomorrow as well.

What’s the Answer?
Review your circumstances – what’s the cause and why?  How are you supposed to know what unconditional love is if you don’t love yourself first? If you don’t love yourself, you won’t be able to build a strong relationship. And when the relationship isn’t strong, it will likely be ruined, leaving broken hearts behind.
It’s not about the g-string or the ding-a-ling. A ring is fine, however, it doesn’t seal the bond, nor does it make a person committed. Oftentimes the person receiving it is more in love with the ring than the person who has given it to them.

What Can or Should You Do?
1. Be committed to who you are first. You’ll certainly be surprised by how amazing you’ll become to yourself as well as others.
2. Look in the mirror and try to look behind what’s being reflected. I can’t tell you what you’ll see, but I guarantee you’ll hear a low voice speaking slowly to you. Don’t worry if you think you can’t hear it – pay close attention by listening to your soul, and you’ll be able to build courage from there. Your inner self is not a reflection of what you see, but how you feel. Release those feelings of resentment, sexual immorality, hate, low self-esteem, and unworthiness. If the master of all creations felt you were a mistake, misfit, unworthy of His love first, why do you think you’ve been chosen from all the seeds in the unknown?
In darkness you stood out among the rest while being nurtured until the right time to be brought into the light of the world through a birth canal you came. Only you can figure out what happened from the beginning up until this point. Make the change, and change how love braces you no matter your size, skin color, or disabilities you may have. Remember there’s someone for everyone, including you.

Why are women willing to accept a broken-down man, but men will not accept a broken-down woman?

Questions to think about

Walking Tall and Fearfully Small

more courage-less fear
Fear into Action

I Fear You!

Time Map

You’re walking tall while fearing to decide what you want to do, based upon what others are doing, forgetting about the man in the mirror. You’re climbing up in age, a number that you’re not; however, looking as though you’re ten years older. You’re recognizing life has taken its toll on you. You’re not looking the way you use to look, looking older than what you are. The time map showing on your face, lines of discouragement, resentfulness, evilness, hardness and feeling of unworthiness. How do you remove the signs of aging? By eliminating doubt and becoming more courageous, building faith and understanding fear.

Looking @ Fear

Fear is good if you have the mind set to welcome a challenge. Fear comes along to help you. Ask yourself what are you afraid of? What will happen to you if you didn’t move forward?

Fear is a fragment of your imagination; it only appears as a biopsy taking away what’s possible.

Fear is the active boss in your life.  Once you boss up, acting like a boss, a true leader, the bossing fear will disappear. Fear only comes to add more to your plate for you to think about, especially if you’ve never ask yourself why? There’s more fear when not asking yourself why, and less when you’ve asked.

Fear gives you other options to consider. If fear can’t come along for the ride, how are you going to become courageous while building faith in what you’re doing until manifestation begins? Fear is always incubating in a cold dry place until something hotter comes along awakening it, taking away your luke warm ideal turning them into ICE.

Fear is only an optical illusion created by the biotic lifestyle of the mind. Often generated as failure, it’s there to move along with you as your guide, preparing you for your next steps, piece by piece until clarity sets in bringing all the pieces to life.

Challenge You

After all if you have an ideal or wanting to do something and no one ever challenges you, you may never make your first move. We all need a challenge. We’re all champions pushing towards our goal. If you’ve not created a goal, do so. I Fear You!

Power-Courage-Fear

Season your life for change

Identify your season for change.

How would you describe power with one word? I would say “Courage”, without it you’re powerless. You have no power without having the courage to use it. Courage is the opposite of fear, and they both go in hand. Fear is asking you.. Do you or questioning you “Are you sure?

Without fear we couldn’t exercise our power to use courage to take us beyond what others may have said like: “You can’t and you did”.

Allow fear and courage to work together changing your lifestyle to what you want it to become. We’re not being held back by people. We’ve only held ourselves in captivity from fear standing on its own without the power of courage.

I would like to encourage you to utilize the courage to use the Power Of Right Now! Knowing you can, you will and you shall “Craft The Lifestyle of Your Dreams! You are a P.O.R.N Star!

Haughty Women

Haughty-Women-1

Isaiah 3:16

The Lord says, “The women of Zion are haughty, walking along with outstretched necks, flirting with their eyes, tripping along with mincing steps, with ornaments jingling on their ankles. Therefore the Lord will bring sores on the heads of the women of Zion; the Lord will make their scalps bald.

As a woman, I know how women feel about their hair.  Do you want to be bald with sores on your scalp?  If you want the hair on your head to remain…..Humble thyself.  This is enough to hold my attention.  What about you?

168?

168 hours doing what?

Is it 24 hours seven days a week or 168 times we’ve said, “I’ll start tomorrow” or 168 times 24 hours a day of the week we have multiple discussions with ourselves, attempting to put aside the fear and pressure of what can we do? Not realizing we’ve spent 168 hours doing nothing!

Emptiness in time

Wow, all this time spent in a week’s time is valued by the hours, beginning with the second and determined by the days with the number of hours in it. When we value our time, we get more value out of time by valuing the things that are within us to do, and not take the mind trip of what not to do. If we’ve taken 24 hours of the seven days and done nothing … It’s purely time we’ll never see again and yet time we’ve lived, making a name for itself as “emptiness in time”.

A penny an hour

Even if you were paid a penny an hour you would have earned $1.68 for 24 hours x seven days… I used the value of a penny, this is what wasted time is equal to, there’s no value when it’s not spent wisely. The penny an hour has more value than the time we’ve wasted… Time is now!

Set aside your fear and do something rather than say something!

Proverbs 10:4 (NIV)
Lazy hands makes a man poor, but diligent hands brings wealth.

Where did the beat go?

Shout

Shout

The beat goes on and on and on. The drum beats on with the horns blowing together, making rhythm. Then the sound of the trumpet begins to mix in the melody that ruffles the soul. As the body tunes in, it begins swaying back and forth; taking in the beats along with the sweet sound of melodies, you can taste in your mouth craving for more.

Guess what can happen if we shout during the time the beats along with the Trumpets sound? Look what happened to the walls of Jericho, they all came down merely from marching around the enemy (wall) with the sounding of trumpets.

Just Shout

Let’s pretend the trumpets are blowing. When I say shout, you shout! Fear doesn’t leave here anymore and watch the walls of resistance that anchors the wall of fear come down. Now keep marching on the front-line of the battlefield doing what you love. By the way, keep your hands raised toward heaven while marching on the front-line of the battlefield and watch as you continue to win. Now Shout!

Joshua 6:20 (NIV)
When the trumpets sounded the people shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the people gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so every man charged straight in, and they took the city.

 

 

 

 

Task = YOU. List = Within You

Tackle the unpleasant duties first

When we think of a task list we think about what needs to get done.  Or the things that need to get started.  If you look at the TASK being you and the list within as you, what things will you then put on your list?

Your Definition

The word task is defined as work to get done, or unpleasant duty.  Now, I’m still looking at you being the task, does this describe you?  Do you find getting through your list of things difficult doing or unpleasant within you to do?  The definition identifies; there are some unpleasant things we need to undress within.  So, I get it!

Task = You

Remember you are the TASK and the list is within you.  The challenge may be difficult.. however, we must get it done!  Do you recall anything within you unpleasant?  Once you tackle the list within, you can move on with the list within your heart.  Like your dreams.  Things you procrastinate about and want to do. Like a business you’ve always wanted to own and operate or helping your family to even watching money grow on trees.  We’ve all imagined this before.

Get it done

However, we can’t walk through our closet with clutter on the floor.  We can continue to step over it or walk through it, and return back to the same clutter on the floor. So until our list within is cleared we’ll never do the things within our heart’s to do list, because of the mind list of clutter.

Does everything need to have a Reason?

A Reason Why?

A Reason Why?

If everything has a Reason, then, what’s the reason?

The reason is for us to seek from within and then know the reason why He lives and gives us the energy to give for no reason.  If you need a reason to do things for a reason, I would say find no reason to love for it’s the reason why you and I are here.

The Real Reason

Adam was the first man that opened the window for all men to sin, at the time, there were no laws to show his transgressions.  Therefore giving God a reason to create a law for man to know when he transgressed against it, he would be sinning.   Pay attention… It’s not the Law that make man righteous, it’s his faith, believing God has the power to do what he say He would do.  For instance, John 6:35 (NIV) “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. 

For Example:

Abraham was given credit for being a righteous man because he had faith and believed.  Although he was over the age of One Hundred years and Sarah, his wife, was over child bearing; when God promised him that he and his offspring would inherit the world and he would be the father of many nations, he had faith knowing that God had the power to make good on His promise.

The Law

Where there is a law there’s wrath. Where there is no law there’s no transgression.

Faith

We are justified through faith.  Calling things not seen; as though they were.  It’s better to believe in what you don’t see than in what you can see.  We’ve already been given a reason and yet many still will never believe that God gave His only begotten son for us to have our sins washed away and can’t find within their heart to ask for forgiveness.

Living in Abundance

God wants us to live an abundant life, therefore coming up with a plan filled with love that gives us an opportunity to enjoy love, peace and happiness in the world.  We should take the time to stop and think and listen for the reason our soul is crying out while the melody continues to play to keep us in tune for every season.  Knowing there’s a time and place for everything, and it’s up to us to find a reason to keep the faith, without wavering regardless of where we may be in life.  Faith causes long suffering and perseverance as it builds character to keep pushing through it all; never giving up the faith knowing that God will deliver on His word, giving credit for righteousness for us who believes in Him.

Romans 6:14 (NIV) For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law but under grace.

Change your mind, change your world.  Change your environment by changing your soil.
