Greetings!

This is one of the things I wish someone would have told me when I said, “Yes,” to the Kingdom Assignment God placed on my life. I pray that it helps you better understand the process of manifesting success.

Greetings!

I hope this note finds you doing incredibly!

This is a time in which I am more “stretched” than ever. It is truly requiring creating some new habits. The old ones just won’t do.

I remember one of my dear friends and mentors asking me a question that truly impacted me. He asked, “Ericka, do you know the one thing you can do to increase your value in the marketplace?” I could think of many things, but no ONE thing was coming to mind.

He simply replied, “Discipline.” He then shared that the more disciplined you are in a particular area, the higher your value becomes in that area.

If you are a more disciplined athlete, you will win more and create more opportunities for endorsements, sponsorships and people who will value your wisdom and knowledge.

If you are a more disciplined as a business owner in the time you spend reaching out to the right people, you will find out their needs and be able to provide your products and services as a solution. You will sell more and create more value for your company.

If you are more disciplined with your time, people will begin to notice and ask you how you are doing what you are doing. They will put more value on your expertise and will be happy to pay you to learn more about your mindset, habits and behaviors that can help them get similar results.

On and on it goes…

The more disciplined you become, the faster you will achieve your goals and increase your value and level of provision.

But where do you begin? As I looked around my life, there were many areas that needed a discipline-adjustment. I needed to give more time and energy to getting consistent exercise. I needed to give more time to being able to personally reach out to those in the organizations I lead to make sure they are taken care of. I needed to give more time to marketing activities and getting the courses fully developed for my two online learning centers. I needed to be more present on social media to share the incredible things I do in my day-to-day life. The list continues…

This can be overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be.

I had to identify my “domino.”

I made up this term years ago as I was moving to new levels of success ( I call this “upleveling”). I was in meditation on day and the Lord showed me a long line of dominoes standing on their side.

He highlighted the one domino at the very beginning of the line. He was showing me that instead of focusing on each of things I needed to do (which seemed never-ending), focus on the one thing that needs to be in place that will impact the rest of the dominoes and create a domino effect.

What was the ONE thing I could do that would positively impact everything else? It took me a bit of thinking to discover my domino.

Then! It hit me – getting more rest.

If I felt more rested, I could literally get up earlier and get to everything else with clarity and energy.

You also have a domino. What is the one thing you can shift that will impact all of the other areas in which you need an increase in discipline?

Once you identify it, you need to do whatever it takes to develop a consistent discipline in this area.

Really focus in on your domino.

When you do this, everything else becomes easier.

Remember to ask the Holy Spirit for an increase of the fruit of self-control or self-temperance. It is a fruit of the Holy Spirit and part of your birthright to walk in full self-control and discipline in every area of your life.

No beating yourself up on the days you don’t get to your domino. Keep working on it and it will be a new habit sooner than you think,

I will talk to you soon!

Dedicated to Your Success,

Greetings!

After 44 – I repeat – forty-four years of being single, two years ago (on April 21st), I got married.

I haven’t shared much about my marriage with you in these two years because it has been a time of learning, growing and deep introspection.

I have a mind that needs to deeply understand things so it has taken me some time to study and understand the power of marriage. This was new and it took some time for me to get my balance.

As I sat in my quiet time on the eve of our two-year anniversary, I took some time to think about all I have learned. I was surprised by what I wrote and I want to share it with you.

I pray that it is a blessing to you – whether you are single or married. Enjoy!

***

I am beginning to understand this thing called marriage.

I am beginning to understand why Jesus used the relationship of marriage to highlight the sheer force of His love for us and why He compared His love of the Church to how a man should love his wife.

I am beginning to understand that marriage is about keeping your heart purified on a daily basis so no veils of hurt or resentment remain. Those veils can easily turn into walls of distance in only days.

I am beginning to understand that marriage is about dying to self so the other person can live. Only then can they die to self on your behalf so true love – agape love – can flow.

I am beginning to understand losing the boundaries of who I am because they flow so seamlessly and comfortably into who my spouse is.

I am beginning to understand that there is no such thing as “My” in marriage. My money. My time. My love. My heart. My vision. It is not until you give up the “My” that your true self has space to come out and get all that it needs.

I am beginning to understand that it is not just about sacrifice and compromise. It is much deeper than that. It is about honor and truly seeing who someone is, not who their past hurt, pain and rejection says they are. When you honor your spouse, they will honor you.

I am beginning to understand that you are precious gifts to one another that need to be loved, appreciated and cherished on a daily basis. Marriage is the gift that keeps on giving if you know how to unwrap it without messing up the gift or the paper in which is it wrapped.

I am beginning to understand that there is something much more valuable than financial security – emotional security; and that there is no place for personal insecurity in a marriage.

I am beginning to understand that wives are King-makers. We must be spiritually, emotionally and mentally mature if we desire a King and not a boy. If you want a King, you must operate as a Queen. If you are in your girl, it can only create a boy. If you are in your woman, it creates a man. When you’re in your Queen, it yields a King. Only Queenship works in marriage.

I am beginning to understand that there is power in keeping your mouth shut because you no longer have to defend your opinion. In order to become One, you must have one mind. This does not mean that you agree on everything. It means that you fully understand and honor how your spouse sees things and where they are coming from.

It is not about defending the different ways in which you may have been raised. It is about learning new things from each other’s experiences.

Marriage is about Oneness. It is the outward expression of the inward relationship with Jesus. It is the closest expression of what it takes to become One with the Lord and to feel a resemblance of the love Jesus has for us.

I praise God that I am able to experience the power and love He intended us to experience in the marriage union.

I praise the Lord that he brought me a husband that has a heart like Jesus.

I praise God for my husband, Anthony, who has taught me what true love, true union and true Oneness is all about.

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of marriage.

I praise the Lord that he brought me a husband that has a heart like Jesus.

I praise God for my husband, Anthony, who has taught me what true love, true union and true Oneness is all about.

Greetings! 

Whether it’s a…

More cohesive family. Weight release. More like-minded and like-spirited friendships. A better marriage (or having your life-partner presented to you). Joy. Being better organized. Peace. Confidence. More stable and thriving finances. Increased giving. A more powerful walk with the Lord. A highly profitable business. More influence, bigger impact and greater results.

Everything your heart desires…Lies in focusing 80% or more of your time, energy and effort in understanding and implementing your Kingdom Assignment.

When you focus on completing your Kingdom Assignment, everything – and I do mean every aspect of your life – moves into its proper place and order.

Your Kingdom Assignment is God’s heart fully manifested in your life. It is the building of something evident (a successful business, a thriving ministry, a large-non-profit organization, etc.) that is a result of your faithful obedience to His will and instruction.

The problem is that we think we know what Kingdom Assignment means, when we really don’t. We tend to see it as synonymous with our dreams, purpose, calling or vision.

Yet, it is something far greater.

In fact, you can easily be on purpose and even living His vision for your life, but still miss fulfilling your Kingdom Assignment.

For example, I know this scripture sounds familiar. “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).” And we KNOW it intellectually, but all-too-often have perceived it as saying, “But seek first my walk with the Lord and all these things shall be added unto me.” This is not what this scripture means.

It is your walk with the Lord that causes you to seek His Kingdom and His righteousness. It is not your walk alone that causes things to be added unto you.

Things will be added unto you to the extent that you solely focus on bringing forth your Kingdom Assignment.

But, where do you begin?

The process of fully tapping into your true Kingdom Assignment can take years. Even a lifetime. But it doesn’t have to.

If you are ready to identify and understand the precise reason God created you and the specific assignment He has on your life, then I invite you to claim your copy of this 3 part tele-class training, Release Your Inner Greatness: Understanding and Implementing Your Kingdom Assignment. You don’t want to miss it.

We have been trained to be fearFUL from the age of 1 year old. This is only compacted as the church teaches us more fear than ever (in its teachings about the “enemy”).

Enough is enough.

Join me as I share 3 key insights to The Truth About Fear in this video teaching. Visit http://www.HowToBeFearlessNow.com to learn more.

Enjoy! Love, Ericka
