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

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

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.
