Greetings!

Once my first alarm goes off in the morning, I hit the snooze button, then take that time to make the transition into “awakeness” by asking the Lord http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photos-business-people-holding-word-vision-arms-raised-image39650813on what He would like me to focus on or share that day. On Monday of this week, He gave me three words. Having these three words actively working in your life and vision will create massive results.

These three words are:

1. Challenge.
2. Accountability.
3. Consistency.

You are not be the same person you were yesterday. Each and every day is an opportunity to close the gap between who God created you to be and where you were yesterday. Every day your habits need to be refined so you create the results you desire to see in your business and ministry. New levels of challenge, accountability and consistency will do this.

Challenge. In order to accelerate the tasks that you are crossing off of your To-Do list, you must first challenge yourself. It is far too easy for you to remain at the same level of comfort for days, months or even years at a time. This just won’t do.

In order to move forward, you must constantly challenge yourself to be better, bigger, bolder each day. Stretch yourself. Keep stretching yourself until living in that place of constant stretching becomes normal for you. Don’t allow yourself to become comfortable with anything less than the results you need to produce to operate at the level to which you are called.

Accountability. A funny thing happens when you commit to being extraordinary. You have less and less people who are “flying at your altitude.” This means less and less people to even understand what you are building, not to mention helping to hold you accountable and on task.

This is when your vision becomes between just you and God and it is easy to cease holding yourself accountable because you are already doing more than most. Yet, you know that there is so much more in you that needs to be expressed and released to produce the results to which you are called. You must have a powerful form of accountability, preferably to more than one person so you can take advantage of the capacity for success of more than one person.

I have learned that others actually have a capacity or limit for YOUR success. When you brush up against the limits of their capacity for YOUR success, you will recognize it because they will either begin to say snide, biting comments about you or themselves in relation to how your success is making them feel.

This is why is it important for you to connect with multiple people to keep you accountable, focused and holding your “feet to the fire” to push you and encourage you dig deeper than you have ever dug before and experience more than you have ever achieved before. Once you are challenging yourself on a regular basis and have a team to hold you accountable, then comes the final ingredient to this trinity.

Consistency. Consistency takes you deeper than the goal, or outcome, to what it takes to naturally create that goal. I all-too-often hear people say that something (that diet, that training program, that gym membership, that new planner, etc.) did not work for them. It is not the program that did not work for them; it is that they did not develop the necessary consistency to get the result of achieving their goals. When your activities, habits and behaviors change, your goal is easily realized.

Being consistent requires that you have support structures that keep you focused and your eyes solely on the consistency at-hand so no distractions seep in and you can remain consistent no matter how you are feeling, whether you have or have not, or what circumstances are showing up in your life.

When you have all three of these things solidly in place, which takes practice and a process, you will easily SOAR into the reality of your goals being attained and your vision being fulfilled.

And, as always, enjoy!

With Love and Dedication to Your Success,
Ericka

big-girl-pantiesThis is the time to DIG-IN. Or as my best friend and I put it this week, “It’s time to put on our big girl (woman) pants (okay, we actually said, “panties,”) and make some things happen!” It’s time to do all that you already have learned to do but have not make the time or aligned effort to complete.

The Lord has shown you in what areas He is calling you up to a new level of focus and discipline, it is now up to you to make it happen.

Discipline (Self-Control/Temperance) is a Fruit of the Holy Spirit and it is a natural part of who you are. You are already disciplined.

The question is, in what are you being disciplined and consistent? If there are things you are doing that no longer serve where you are desiring to be, it is time to drop those old ways and habits and diligently work on adopting new behaviors that support who God has called you to be. This increases your joy and makes life much more enjoyable! 

Being strong spiritually without the mental where-with-all to follow-through and complete what you know spiritually can leave you feeling frustrated and like something is missing. It can leave you feeling pressure without knowing precisely what to do about it to keep moving forward. It can leave you knowing you are called to BIG things but experiencing overwhelm and isolation on the way to making things happen. It can also leave you feeling unclear and not knowing exactly what your next step should be.

You must create a strong mindset and new habits that push you beyond where you have ever been before.

One of my favorite mentors shared something that truly elevated my understanding of discipline. He shared, “Discipline sets your value in the marketplace.” DEEP! And SO true!

If you want more from your results, business and ministry, your level of discipline must move to a new level.

Is it be time to get to bed earlier so your mind is fresh and operating at peak level?

Is it time for you to set some clear office hours to build your vision (block them out on your calendar and make sure you show up when you say you will)?

It is time to utilize your calendar and time management tools consistently?

Is it time to release foods that do not support having natural high-energy from your diet?

Is it time to set aside prospecting time in which you are picking up the phone and connecting with your target market consistently every day?

Is it time to increase your time in the presence of the Lord so you can receive His specific instruction and begin each day completely aligned with you He created you to be in every area of your life?

For me, a major shift is not only to get my full 8 hours of rest, it is honoring my body by exercising daily. As a past athlete, my body needs movement and to be pushed in order to feel it’s best. It is time for me to incorporate this this is a new habit and do this no matter what is going on in my world – whether I feel like it or not.

As you move to new levels of discipline, remember that your vision is only as good as your temple. If your body is tired and drained, then God’s vision comes through you tired and drained. This is also a time of heightened self-care and renewal. Take the time to feel balanced, clear and strong as the Lord moves you to higher heights of discipline.

Here’s to moving to new levels (upleveling)! Last but not least, remember to enjoy the process.

Dedicated to Your Success,

Ericka

After all of the time and energy I put into guiding you in doing your spiritual work, I am clear that manifesting the fullness of your business or ministry vision is a matter of mindset.

It is so important to not only spend time developing your spiritual life. You must spend just as much time strengthening Businesswoman by Computersyour mindset so you keep only focusing forward no matter what circumstances or obstacles that come your way.

Being highly spiritually developed without an unshakable mindset leaves you like a body builder who spends all of her time lifting weights to develop her upper body, but she has chicken legs that can barely keep her standing.

Having an immoveable mindset enables you to access and release the untapped potential of your mind so you can naturally accelerate your clarity and productivity and fulfill your high calling in business or ministry without a hitch.

When your mindset is fully focused on manifesting your vision, you easily glide over life’s challenges, obstacles and setbacks with joy and determination.

When your mind is not strong, you easily get discouraged and can begin to feel isolated. Obstacles seem bigger than they are and begin to slow down your progress.

You all-too-often find yourself venting about what is not working or dreaming about what your life would be like if things were going better. Not to mention the extra trips to the pantry to grab yet another cookie that you tried to talk yourself out of.

You can even find it difficult to do the very things that will keep you moving toward obtaining your goals.

Last week I received a call from Debbie, one of the graduates of my Ministry MasteryTM course, who was wondering if I ever had to deal with crazy circumstances while I was building my vision. I laughed as I thought back over the many, many challenges that seemed insurmountable at the time they came into my path.

She shared that it seemed to look so easy for me and that she couldn’t imagine that I had to overcome massive difficulties to keep moving forward. She thought that what she was going through was unique to her situation.

Overcoming hurdles, obstacles and limitations is simply part of the process of manifesting the vision God has placed on your business or ministry.

In my more than 14 years on this journey of creating a thriving business and ministry, there have been more challenges than I care to count.

Building a business as a single mother with a demanding 5 year-old, starting a business without a penny in savings or capital, having every possible financial challenge come my way, being a target for spiritual hindrances to come my way and being called both to train business owners and minsters (when just one of these Kingdom assignments in huge) just to name a few.

If it was not for the fact that my parents deeply instilled a strong mindset in me all of my life, I would have crumbled under the “bigness” of my calling and gotten derailed from my vision path many times over.

It is time to connect, activate and harness the dormant power of your mind to fulfill the spiritual calling and destiny on your life.

This requires an intentional investment of time, practice and intentional focus to strengthen your mind for the next level of success.

Here are a few of the basics that will get you moving in the right direction to have an unshakeable mindset:

1. Identify from where your thoughts come.

2. Pull down every thought that is not aligned with where you are going.

3. Reframe old thoughts and beliefs.

No more feeling strong in the spirit and not being steady emotionally and mentally so you can wake up each and every morning with laser-beam-like focus and tenacity to walk through your day efficiently and energetically.

You can do this!

In fact, having an unshakeable mindset is so important to what you are called to do that I teamed up with an amazing woman to teach the comprehensive process of developing an unshakeable mindset.

If you are ready to take this work deeper, for the first time, my course, Developing an Unshakeable Mindset for Success, is available as a home study course.

I pray that it is the missing link you have been asking for that will catapult your vision to new heights and dimensions of success.

excitment3After more than six years of co-founding and perfecting Touch and Agree (TAG) Christian Women’s Business Network, which meets during the business day on third Fridays, I have heard over and over again from Business Owners who can’t get away during the day, but would love to attend a TAG event because the training truly impacts businesses and moves them forward.

After listening closely to Christian Business Women’s desires and frustrations, I have designed a day that will have great impact on their business.

I have the rare gift of being in the “laboratory” of what makes the hearts, minds and spirits of Christian Business women soar in the business world.

Whether you are currently a solo-prenuer or you are building a team to help you manifest your business vision, it is imperative that you take some time to step away from running your business to working ON your business so your work is done with ease and enjoyment, instead of feeling constantly stretched and panicked about acquiring your next client or waiting for your next invoice payment.
