Don’t Focus on the Problem

31 Jul

When a problem arises in life, too many Believers panic and focus on the problem. As a Believer, one of the keys to overcoming the problem is to focus on the Promises rather than the problem. When you focus on the Promises and go to the Lord for the answer(s) on how to overcome the problem and then WAIT for the answer before taking action, you will be victorious. So many of us go to the Lord for the answer, but don’t wait for the answer. Many times I have a tried to work things out on my own and ended up messing things up, when I should have taken the time to go to the Lord with the problem and then WAIT for the answer before taking action.

Hope this helps someone today. If so, please comment below.

It’s important to recognize and avoid DISTRACTIONS that are keeping you from accomplishing what you have been called to do.

Seems like more people are constantly DISTRACTED from focusing on what’s important in life because they are always on their Smartphone or Computer Texting, Face-timing, Skyping, Social Networking, Checking email, Taking Selfies, etc….allowing themselves to get caught up in trivial things, which DISTRACTS them and takes them further away from where they should be at this stage in LIFE. (This even applies to myself…LOL!)

It’s time for people to take a step back and examine the things may be DISTRACTIONS and RE-FOCUS on pursuing and accomplishing what God has called them to do.

Have a Blessed Day!

No Time for Network Marketing

24 Jul

One of the primary excuses people give for not joining Network Marketing is that they don’t have enough time.

Television and Sleep are 2 of the biggest time wasters on the planet. People who are too busy, yet are working 60 to 80 hours per week while having a huge amount of debt can FIND time by simply giving up television and sacrificing some sleep.

If this sounds like you and you’re looking for A BETTER WAY, comment below.

As a parent, it’s easy to get caught up in the affairs of life – work, business, errands, etc. However, it’s important to remember you are a role model for your children and they are watching everything you do.

Tell these 3 things to your kinds as much as possible:
