This week's challenge: Take back your mornings.
I am about to share something with you that can change your entire day...scratch that, your entire LIFE if you take this to heart.
See if this sounds like you: Do you wake-up to your phone as an alarm clock? Turn off the alarm, and then immediately check Facebook or Twitter, your text messages, or your emails? You lose track of time and then the next thing you know you are running behind schedule! Adrenaline fills your body and you hit the ground running starting the day rushed and frenzied.
If this even slightly sounds anything like you, then it’s time to make a change and get your mind ready for a great day.
Try changing it up tomorrow to the following morning ritual. And the next day, and so on. I promise if you change the quality of the first 30 minutes of your day, you can change the quality of your life.
The change is really simple, but admittedly, not easy.
Here's what I want you to do starting tomorrow morning:
This new ritual can have a HUGE impact on your day and accelerate the achievement of your God-given goals and dreams. Get up 30 minutes earlier and take the time to do this for yourself. You will not regret it!
Let me know how it goes :-)
Have a blessed day,

"You will never rise above your level of belief and self-esteem."
I want you to be successful. I want you to have everything in life you are supposed to have so today, I am going to share with you one of my own personal success secrets. If you apply it consistently for the next 7 days, you will position yourself for great things.
The Power of the Morning Mantra
For as long as I can remember, I've been taught "you have what you say." It's an age old biblical principle that has made its way into modern culture and for good reason.
"It's not so important what others say about you, it's what YOU
say about you that really counts."
What have YOU been saying about you up until this point? Have you been encouraging yourself? Challenging yourself? Motivating yourself? If the answer is no or if you haven't settled into a rhythm of doing this consistently, I want to help you get your mind right by sharing my "morning mantra" with you.

Repeat after me every day for the next 7 days and watch how your attitude changes!
Seriously, it takes less than 1 minute to say the morning mantra so say it with me daily okay? You'll be glad you did.
Keep pushing FORWARD!
New horizons: I like science OK but I like history better and that is what intrigues me about the New Horizons spacecraft's visit to Pluto. You see history only becomes history when a person or group of people decides to do something extraordinary. Everyday things don't make the news - only big, bold, risks are captivating enough to make the first page of USA today.
As I read the story I was inspired… The spacecraft took a 3,000,000,000 mile, 9 1/2 year journey to Pluto. Did you get that? 3,000,000,000 miles and 9 1/2 years. How far are you willing to go...how much time are you willing to invest in achieving your dream? Not only was this journey time consuming but according to the article "it would only take a speck of dust the size of a grain of rice to mortally wound the spacecraft." A spec the size of a grain of rice is all it would've taken to destroy a $720 million mission. Talk about being willing to take big risks.
#DreamChasers, let this be a reminder to us once again that it's only impossible until it's done. Until that signal was received yesterday no human made object had ever been that close to Pluto. Now history has been made and you best believe more big, bold moves are to come.
Though the journey may be long and seemingly never ending, keep going.
Though it you've invested more you dare count, keep believing.
Though it seems like just one bad move could cause your Jenga of a dream to come tumbling down, keep playing.
New Horizons await not just for science, but for us IF we don't quit.
You can't have it both ways #DreamChasers...if you want a big payoff, you have to be willing to take big risks. We must free ourselves from the fear of success, the fear failure, the fear of rejection, the fear of imperfection, the fear of embarrassment, the fear of loss... God can't take us higher if we allow fear to rule. #FreeYourself!
A few months ago I read this: "Giving precedes receiving and my gifts to others precede God's gifts to me." Made sense to me but I didn't fully get the implication. Today, it became clear.
Luke 6:38 says: "Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full--pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back." I believe the implication for the #DreamChaser is that if you want others to open big doors for YOU, you need to open big doors for SOMEONE ELSE. If you WANT big time, money, resources, etc. in support of YOUR dream, you have to GIVE big time, money, resources, etc. in support of SOMEONE ELSE'S dream.
Practically speaking, if you want to start and run a successful, growing business, whose business are you helping to grow? If you want your message to go national, who's national message are you helping to advance? If you want to move up the corporate ladder, who are you mentoring so they can move up? Believe your cause can help make the world a better place? What causes are you actively involved in that also seek to make the world a better place?
More big picture.
