Preparing to Launch

I've been working very hard the past few weeks on the launching of the marketing plan for my second business. It's been an exciting but cumbersome process.

Thank goodness, most of the hard work is over. Now I'm just waiting for the creative part to take place. But I gotta tell you... although I wanted to be done with it all, it wasn't possible. I really had to wait.

I started thinking I could handle it all. But the truth is that the project involved too many pieces. And it required the input of several different people. So I'm glad I gave in and sought their assistance. Because I feel very satisfied with the results.

This is all part of the "hurry up and wait" process I talked about in an earlier post. It is doing. Preparing. Doing all the right things in a timely manner. Taking care of what needs to happen to the best of your ability.

All of these things are wealth and prosperity in the making. They are action!
When planned and orchestrated well, your efforts will yield an end product you can be proud of.

Now I'm ready to introduce, expose and share my product with the world.
I can't wait!

Be blessed.

Virginia Tech

Prayer can move mountains!

Please join me in prayer for the families of the Virginia Tech families who lost a loved one in yesterday's massacre.

I pray God may console and strengthen them during this very difficult time.

Hurry Up And Wait

Time and preparation are essential to a successful venture. This is a basic principle of growth and progress. So why do we become anxious and even discouraged when we don't get fast results from a new project or business?

I'm writing this post before I dash out to my church service. I don't want it to escape me.
I was pleasantly surprised this week with the realization that a new project I'm working and preparing for has just come together.

The strategy and understanding of all its pieces have finally come together. I can actually visualize it and make sense of it. This after many weeks of learning, reading, studying and not to mention, frustration because I couldn't make it happen faster.

To all of you who suffer, like me, from this "very human" condition called impatience... learn to apply the "hurry up and wait" rule.

You'll see that it is the soundest way to attract wealth and prosperity :)

Life’s Like a Spinning Class (part two)

I never thought a Spinning class could teach me so much.

Here I was, finally on the bike and on my way to…
A total meltdown??

What drama! -- starring yours truly.

I was having a terrible mental conversation. And all because:

- I was afraid of feeling vulnerable;
- Afraid of failure;
- Afraid of not having the stamina to go the whole hour;
- Afraid of feeling ridiculous;
- Afraid I would have to quit;
- Afraid of injury;
- Afraid discouragement would keep me from going back… afraid, afraid, afraid!!

Fear -- It is the root of all evil!

We see the same thing happening in our business, career, with relationships, personal and family matters.

Fear is almost always the reason we get stuck. Why we limit ourselves.

And it is why we don’t attract wealth and prosperity!
Why we don't soar!

We fear the unknown.
But the mystery of the road ahead can only be revealed as we travel it.

We overcome challenges when we face them.
Success happens when we do -- and persevere.
Even while experiencing the fear.

Quitting, is never an option!

I was bruised and soar after the class. I limped, literally, for four days afterwards. But guess what? -- I bragged to my friends about it for days!
And, I took away a very valuable lesson:

- I can do anything I put my “right mind” to;
- I can prepare myself better by having the right gear, posture and attitude;
- Planning is not necessary sometimes (this one was mammoth!);
- It is okay to feel vulnerable;
- Ask for help even when feeling vulnerable;
- Never listen to the skeptics;
- I will experience a breakthrough if I stick to it long enough;
- Keeping my mental conversations in check is crucial to my success;
- Let myself go so I can enjoy the moment.

The journey is always better if we enjoy what we're doing.
When we are bold about our decisions. When we try new things.
And wealth and prosperity will come naturally as part of the process.

Life can definitely be like a spinning class… or not!

Who would know more about it than Lance Armstrong who said... “Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”
