Procrastinate No More – Why Put Off For Tomorrow What You Can Do Today?
Stop Procrastination and Tap Into Your Enormous God Given Potential!
Why do we all have the natural tendency to…
do things tomorrow –
instead of today?
Have you been putting off…
and decisions in your life?
The Procrastination Trap
Often times we postpone our work and our choices in order to avoid discomfort. Sometimes we stall because of self-doubt or a sense of inadequacy associated with the task at hand. Other times, we simply lack the needed motivation to get started.
Whatever the reason, procrastination usually has negative consequences and simply creates stress as the projects and decisions begin to pile up…
And then there are spiritual consequences when we procrastinate. Important tasks in our church or volunteer organizations may be left undone and we may become a stumbling block to others. Our spiritual growth may slow to a stop, and worse of all, we may miss out on the blessing of God.
This is why we need to move beyond our fears and personal inadequacies and allow God to work in our lives. Once we admit our weaknesses to our heavenly Father, He is faithful to help us overcome them.
Put a Stop to Procrastination
If you find that procrastination is negatively affecting your life, then first confess this problem and turn it over to God. Then, try to identify the areas of your life in which you procrastinate. Ask yourself what feelings accompany your lack of motivation in these areas? Are you afraid, angry, bitter, or resentful?
Once we are ready to submit these emotions to God, He is ready to help us remove them from our lives. Then we have to choose to do today what we know to do, instead of making choices on the basis of feelings. The next time you do not ‘feel’ like working, stop and ask God to provide the godly motivation you need.
“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.” — Ecclesiastes 9:10
Tomorrow is never guaranteed, and that helps explain the urgency felt in the above verse. Whatever task we may have at hand, we need to respond by doing it now and doing it well. Take whatever God has put in your hand and use it, without delay and without reserve, for the Lord.
God created us all with enormous potential to do great things. But if we want to tap into the potential that is currently beyond where we are now, we have to take action with the gifts and talents and opportunities God puts in front of us.
The clock is ticking. Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today. Especially do not procrastinate in serving the Lord; ask Him every morning for his help. Whatever God has put on your heart to do today; do it now with all your might and put a stop to procrastination.
May God give you the motivation to do today, what needs to be done today, so you can tap into your potential and manifest a life of growing prosperity!

Powerful Leadership – A Positive Attitude in Leaders Produces Results in More Ways Than One!
A Valuable Leadership Skill Worth Improving!
As a leader grows and develops, it not only helps improve their life, but the lives of those around them.
A key skill to develop and maintain is a positive attitude.
Men and women rise and fall everyday because of their attitude.
“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”
— Thomas Jefferson
Positive Attitude – The Critical Factor in Leadership
If you really want to go anywhere as a leader, you have to examine your attitude! Whatever attitude you accept at this time is a critical factor in determining the success or failure of your future.
Too often people never come to a place of leadership where God wants them. Or they don’t produce the results that are expected, because of a negative attitude. A leader may want God to use them, but He is saying “No” because of their sour, nasty attitude. A negative attitude will hinder a leaders potential.
And don’t be one that points the finger of blame at others, especially as a leader. Each persons attitude is their own responsibility.
Often times, people with bad attitudes don’t know that they have one. But if you are a leader and find yourself pointing the finger of blame at others regularly, that may be a great reason to examine the condition of your own thoughts and heart.
Positive Attitude – Helping Leaders Produce Positive Results
Understand that the attitude a leader has toward how they view and handle things, will determine the results they produce. As long as a leader is viewing things negatively, they are going to get negative results.
Leaders should not let other people govern their production and outcome. Leaders must have an “I can” attitude. Many people miss opportunities and promotions that God has for them, because they let someone else determine their attitude.
Of course as a leader, challenges are always going to come and attempt to get you to accept a bad or negative attitude. But remember it is a critical factor to have a positive, ‘I can’ attitude about what you are doing in order to produce positive results.
The results not only show up in the life of the leader, but in the life of those being led. This is the case whether it is a leadership role in a family, ministry, or business. You can make a difference.
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked rule, the people mourn.”
— Proverbs 29:2
Bottom line: A leaders attitude will create results. It is up to the leader to choose the attitude they will put on for the results they desire. A leadership role should require a positive attitude and one that produces positive results.
May you be a leader that maintains a positive attitude and a life of growing prosperity!

Empowerment – How to Ramp Up Your Confidence and Put an End to Fear and Anxiety!
Start Tapping Into Your Full Potential
Do not let the fear factor paralyze your potential. Fear works to ruin lives. It makes us withdraw and turn away from our dreams. It eats away our confidence and self-esteem. It holds us back from reaching our potential.
Dale Carnegie said, “You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.”
Doing it Afraid
Have you had so much fear and anxiety in your life for so long now, that you can’t see how you can ever be free from it?
Well, you can shake loose the powerful hold it has over you by facing it head on. Each time you boldly confront fear; you squash it smaller and smaller and empower yourself with confidence.
Courage is required to face those things we fear the most. No doubt it is not easy to break the negative stronghold fear sets up in our life. But it can be done by taking steps forward and doing it afraid.
Remember, fear causes us to turn away from our dreams and goals. So each time you courageously take a step forward toward your goals and act even in the midst of fear, you begin to squash your fears and build your confidence.
Faith provides the confidence to be a success. Fear, on the other hand, is the source of worry, anxiety, depression, and other tormenting emotions.
What can we do to help prevent fear in the first place? We can look to God and trust in His faithfulness and be confident that He will help us. The person who trusts in God has confidence that God will work all things together for good. (Romans 8:28)
Faith empowers us with confidence and gives us boldness to act in the midst of fear.
“We may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do to me.”
— Hebrews 13:6
Faith brings a supernatural peace that allows us to enjoy life with confidence and free from the torment of fear. God says He did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)
Put this to the test right away. Call on God to help ramp up your confidence; so you can put an end to fear and anxiety. Hold onto strong faith and begin to replace your fears with confidence and watch what God can do!
May you enjoy a life empowered with faith filled confidence and growing prosperity!

Abundance – Want a Powerful 3 Step Formula that Reveals Secret to Your Abundant Prosperity?
Tap Into Your Built-In Potential to Create Prosperity!
Just because you are unable to see the potential inside yourself at any given moment does not mean it is not there.
You can’t see your emotions or your thoughts, but they are real, and they do exist.
How do you reveal that built in potential and tap into it?
This powerful formula is simple, but extremely effective, and gets results. It’s been taught and explained in many different ways over the years. Why? In an attempt to get people to live the life they were designed to live. How sad to see people go to the grave never accomplishing that thing they were created to do!
From Potential to Potential Realized
1.) FAITH & CONFESSION
Start where you are and begin using the measure of faith God has given you. Just like there is great built in potential for a future harvest inside the smallest seed, your faith has built in potential to manifest abundance.
A seed won’t produce results if it’s not planted. By faith you must plant the seeds of change you wish to harvest in your life.
How do you do that? You set the law of faith into motion with your confessions. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. (Proverbs 18:21)
By faith, confess (speak) your desire; your belief. Verbally state out loud to yourself what it is you believe to manifest. Faith speaks what it believes.
Understand that faith works in your heart, not in your head. Use your mind to make a plan and decide what it is you need and desire. Then by faith, speak it to get it planted in your heart where it will go to work.
Hearing yourself speak your desire is not only the secret activator of your faith, but it also increases your faith. As your faith grows, you’ll find yourself thinking and talking more often about that thing you need or desire. This positive cycle helps you become fully persuaded; which leads us to the next step.
2.) FULLY PERSUADED, HOPE & VISUALIZATION
Faith is described as the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen. (Hebrews 11:1)
In order to manifest your desire, you must have faith that is fully persuaded. It is important to eliminate doubt, wavering, and wishy-washy thinking. Become fully persuaded and certain of what you believe.
Have hope that positive things are coming to pass.
Visualize your desired goal in great detail and keep hopeful and focused on the prize. Have confidence that what you can now only see by faith will manifest in the natural.
3.) ACTION, ACTION, & MORE ACTION
It is now time to mix your faith with action. Faith without works is dead. (James 2:20)
The law of faith may be a spiritual law, but it works along with natural laws. If you believe, then you’ll take action; which is required to get results.
The farmer doesn’t plant seed unless he believes it will produce a harvest. After sowing the seed, his work is still not done. It requires more work tending to it. Even after it is fully grown it still requires massive action to reap the harvest.
Also keep in mind; everything produces after its kind and you reap what you sow. Speak only your desired result or solution, not the problem. Keep your thoughts, words, and actions lined up with your desired belief. If you let fear or unwanted thoughts creep in, then you’ll soon have an unwanted harvest.
Now go use this formula in your life. Exercise your faith and put it to good use. For ultimate results, find out what the Word of God has to say over your situation and speak it. Tap into your potential and reveal abundant prosperity.
May your faith increase and your life be full of growing prosperity!
Be blessed to be a blessing –
