Ok, so hopefully you took the time to write out the habits you’re going to begin and end. And you have written at least 5 affirmations to get you started with changing your thought patterns about your self and your life. If not, please go and read the blog from yesterday. As a matter of fact, if this is your first time reading my blog, please go back and start from the beginning so you can get caught up on all of the assignments we’ve had to do. I promise you it will be life changing.
So, ok if you’ve made your way from my IG or FB post to this blog, I promised you I would share with you my small beginning that is on its way to being BIG! I recently stepped out on faith and not only started this blog, but also started my business. I didn’t know how I would build my clientele or even start to make an income from it, but I knew it was what I wanted to do and had been putting off for quite some time. I attended this 3-day conference that totally changed my life, and it made me take the first step to just start what seemed small to me, but I knew deep down had the possibility of becoming BIG!
Now, prior to me going to this conference, I had gone to Chicago for my birthday, and had the opportunity to attend Pastor John Hannah’s church. It was during that service and his message that he spoke these words, “It’s your time and your turn” and then as a confirmation to what I was already proclaiming for 2019, he said, “2019 will be the year of open doors”! The way I found a corner of that church and gave God praise…lol
Fast forward to attending the conference (which I suggest for anyone wanting to be an entrepreneur) I sat, I listened, I learned. I completed my assignments, worked at stretching my mind to think beyond where I was to where I wanted to be and after 3 intense days of this conference, I emerged ready to conquer the world. One of the assignments we had to go was a money tree assignment. It was in this assignment that we had to draw a tree with branches, write on each branch the things we wanted to do, and then we were given $100.00 bills to put next to the things we thought we could make our first $100.00 off. That was truly inspiring. And it allowed me focus like a laser on the one business venture I could get an income from.
So, here’s where it gets, as my dad would say, gooder…lol I left from there, launched my agency and waited. I didn’t have to wait long though. I received a call from a high profile person looking for someone who offered the services I did. We talked through the details of what they would need and just like that, I got my first client and my first not $100.00, but $200.00 dollars. But wait, there’s more! I came home, buckled down and began to write the vision for what I wanted for my agency. I wrote the specific amount that I wanted to bring in monthly for my business. I wrote that on a Monday, on Tuesday, I received a call from that same client saying that they wanted and needed to use my agency for some additional services for their company and quoted me the same amount I had just written down the day before! It totally blew my mind because here I was trying to add 4 more clients to accomplish that amount and this ONE client just offered to pay my agency THAT amount! But it doesn’t stop there, my goal now is to still increase my clientele base in order to double my monthly income for my business.
All I am saying is this! No matter what season you are in, it’s never too late. Take it from me. All I could do was believe that what I wanted to do would eventually manifest itself and come to fruition. I stepped out on faith, believed in myself and what I was doing, and took the first step of faith towards my goals. Do me a favor, believe in what you’re trying to do. Little becomes much and starting small will alway turn into something big if you’re willing to do the work to make it happen. Faith in God+Belief in yourself+Work=Results. Your assignment for today is to go back, look at that one thing you have thought about starting, or started and then stopped, or may even be doing at this moment, but it hasn’t gone the way you had hoped and planned and speak life into it. Get into agreement with me that 2019 is the year of open doors! And you know what? Your door is waiting.
The scripture focus for today on IG and FB was Zechariah 4:10, Do not despise the day of small beginnings! Your greater, best, better, big is closer than you think, all you have to do is step out and start.
Here’s to Your New Beginning!
