Soar! Committed to the process-part 3 (weekly podcast episode #26)

Weekly Podcast. Follow along with blog post.

In continuing on with my book study of TD Jake's book, Soar! Build Your Vision from the Ground Up, the focus is on enjoying the peaks and valleys of the process of building your brand and your business. On page 32, Jakes says, "many people have a vision to become entrepreneurs, but are unable to commit to the demands of building a business from scratch." In other words, we want success yesterday, right? Yet, that's not how creating anything worthwhile happens. I think all of us should know that by now. Nothing amazing happens overnight. Nothing. We're not going to lose 30 pounds in one month (not in a healthy way at least), we're going to learn to become fluent in another language in six months, and we're not going to build a thriving business in three days. It won't happen. There is a process, which are formulas for success in any endeavor if and when we're willing to go through to get through. "The reality is you can't be committed to the dream and attain it. You have to committed to the process of putting your dream into practice" (Jakes, p 32). In other words if we want to be the boss, we have to count up the costs and be ready to take responsibility and accountability for everything that happens. No pain, no gain. Who's ready to soar? Are you? Commitment involves a bumpy ride. I know that from experience. Entrepreneurship is not for the fly-by-night person. I can tell you that, right now. Yet the rewards are amazing. Already I have been blessed by the people who tell me how In Sharon's Heart is helping to encourage them. That makes the grind worth it. 

So, yes you can make it, in doing what lives in your heart. And yes, you can make it if you don't going through the process even though it's sometimes inconvenient. You can make it, because as Jakes says (p 32), the process builds your stamina, your insight, and most importantly, your relationships, which are the lifeblood of any business." "And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply" (Genesis 1:28). You will make it.

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you?  For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity ( 2 Timothy 1 :7) , but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
