The Final step In creating what you want is RECEIVING! Sounds easy doesn't it? Who wouldn't be ready to receive what they have been trying to create? Especially when it takes most people some time to get to this point. The reality is to properly RECEIVE what you have been waiting for takes some preparation.

I think of this step the same as a football player who is a receiver. It really is not much different if you think about it.The football player enters the field and his mind is on what he has to do ! Once he catches the ball in his hands he knows exactly what needs to be done. RECEIVING the ball then is NOT the end of what needs to be done. He must take the ball into the end zone in order to get a touchdown.

It is the same for us. Once we can see the goal coming our way, it is up to us to be prepared to take it the rest of the way. We can do this by allowing our blessing to impact our lives in a positive way. Without squandering it or becoming frivolous. That is the greatest challenge of all in receiving !

I often think about people who have won large amounts on the lottery. When they are interviewed they almost always say that they have been waiting to win for a long time. They had the INTENTION of winning and had been getting tickets all the time. But something interesting happen when the windfall shows up on their doorstep. All of a sudden anything and everything they ever THOUGHT about is readily available to them. They no longer live in a dream state. They have the means to purchase whatever comes to mind.

Once such lottery winner was a man from the south. He was a business owner and he hit for several million dollars. He said it was like a dream come true. One year later he filed for bankruptcy,closed his business and foreclosed on his home. He treated his windfall as though it were a destination unto itself. He did not hold onto enough of it to sustain himself. When he was interviewed about his loss, he admitted that he did not have enough foresight. He said he did not realize how much he was spending until it was too late.

It does not have to end this way though. Once we receive what what we have believed is coming our way, it is up to us remember that this is not the END! It is a brand new beginning !

Is to Believe that what you have asked for is coming your way. And the best way to do this is to behave as though

you already have in your possession what you have asked for. This process is the same regardless of the magnitude

of your request.

This is for me at least the most difficult step in creating what you REALLY want. I once read somewhere that BELIEVING is no different from expecting an order you placed to come in the mail. I don't know about YOU but I have had some really trying times in my life. Times that tested me to my limits. What I learned is that this step is DEEPER than we all might think. My lessons were centered around paying the bills with two kids, one salary and no child support coming in.

For a while it seemed as though all I was doing was chasing the idea that I had enough money to get by. Then one day I sat down with a calculator , pen and paper. there it was RIGHT in front of me. PROOF that I could actually make it! I had enough money. What was it I was doing wrong ? I asked myself time and again. I was not ACTING as though I had enough to get by. I was panicking each time I got paid. In my panicked state I was buying more groceries than we needed for one week. And when my kids saw all the goodies I would buy they would consume them immediately. The food was gone in no time and I was running behind on the bills trying to "keep up" instead of watching my spending.

Once I figured out where the problem was, I quickly made some serious adjustments. Those adjustments it turns out was the way I believed I had enough to get by.By living within my means, it gave me a sense of accomplishment I had not felt before. I was no longer running around making excuses for not paying my bills. Instead I adjusted my own settings so that things would be less stressful for ME! And in turn less stressful for me kids!

The abundance that I would experience from believing that I had enough has been unbelievable. And quite frankly a little overwhelming at times. But my confidence in my ability to create a positive future for myself has never been greater than it is today. By putting my FAITH into action it has made all the difference.

YOU can experience similar results in your life. What are the areas that you want to change? What have you requested that has not showed up yet? It is not your request that is being ignored. It is your actions that are saying you want a different outcome. Change the way you think and you will certainly change your LIFE!!

Is the one that takes place within yourself. Your thoughts are your guidance system upon which your actions are

dictated. It is a truly amazing thing how we can all be controlled in this way. This inner conversation is what can

transform a life from ordinary to extraordinary.

I am not necessarily talking about rags to riches here. However, that could definitely be a possible outcome. But

the transition from self doubt into belief can be a long road for a lot of people. You see most people think that it

will take a MAJOR shift in their lives to create a difference. When in fact the opposite is true. It is the SMALL changes

that have the most long lasting results.

Self doubt is not limited to young people. It is also rampant among adults as well. Consider someone who has been

in a career for 20 years. They may have been educated at a certain level. Then as the years went by the requirements

of their job have changed. In order to maintain their position or get another job at the same level they have to go

back to school for an additional degree.

The challenge for them comes in the form of believing that after so many years they CAN go BACK to school ! In

addition to working full-time they will have to attend classes at night and study. Just the thought of this entire

process is enough to create a very negative inner conversation.

Yet, as the conversation is going on time is going by. It becomes a stumbling block to success. It only takes ONE class

to make a start towards the degree. With each class they take the goal gets closer. And with each step the inner

dialogue changes. Self-doubt is slowly replaced with the idea that the goal can and will be reached.

Another obstacle in achieving self confidence are our outside influences. The people who try to tell us that we cannot

make it. They use their words to fill us with self doubt. The reason they do this is not because they think we CANNOT

make it. In fact the opposite is true. What they are witnessing is someone who has potential. Someone who can do great


It is their FEAR that they want to spread. But we have the power to STOP that from entering our everyday thoughts. By

focusing on where we are going, we can prevent negative thoughts. Our inner conversation will then contain a more

positive tone.

Remember, the only person you can control is yourself. The only person you can change is yourself. By working on

improving yourself you will not have any time to listen to anyone else's negativity!!

Should be as carefully planned as maneuvering your pieces around a chess board. This isn't to say that you must literally count all of your steps. The idea here is to consider all of your options before making your NEXT MOVE. That can be more difficult than you would think depending on your circumstances. Unlike a chess board it is not always possible to see the pitfalls of a decision before it has been made. Especially if there are other factors involved ,such as time constraints or emotional turmoil. Quite honestly, it is usually under this sort of pressure that most of us must make major decisions.

Under duress, your thinking can become clouded and our abilities questioned. The challenge is to stay focused and SLOW things down. Two weeks before this past Christmas, my car was hit while parked. The damage did not look too bad at first. And I was able to drive it the following morning as I was heading to a Yankee Swap. I decided to stop at an ATM to get some cash. When I opened the door to the car the wind pushed it so far opened it would not close. It was a very chilly morning with wind chills bringing the 35 degrees down to -2. I called a body shop and they came and towed the car in. I sat in that car freezing for an hour and had plenty of time to do some thinking.

It would be a month before I got my Dodge Caliber back. In the meantime I drove a luxurious midsize vehicle that was fully loaded. Needless to say I was in absolutely no rush to get back into my little car with crank windows. But when the time came for me to turn in the rental I had some other pressing matters to attend to. I had an engine light that refused to stay OFF. I had replaced the part responsible for this malfunction three times. My mechanic told me it was time to call it a day. I could not even think about getting a new car. I had too many other things going on. What I needed was TIME.

When I picked up my car something fascinating happened! The engine light was OFF!! I could not believe it.The very next morning I went and had an oil change. You see the part that was malfunctioning directly affected the oil check engine light. This was all very crucial because I needed an inspection sticker. The one I had was due to expire at the end of January. That meant by the time I picked up the car I had less than two weeks. After the oil change I had to drive the car 100 miles before I could get a sticker. Every day I got behind the wheel and prayed that light would stay OFF. And guess what? It did!! I was able to get a sticker that was good for a year.

By slowing things down in my mind and taking it one step at a time ( along with some divine intervention) I was able to get some more TIME. That time I received permitted me to look around and see what my options would be for a replacement vehicle!!

Give yourself the gift of having OPTIONS!! This can be done by thinking through your next MOVE!!

It is more important to use the cards you have been dealt in order to play the game than it is to wish for the winning cards. After all it is about strategy anyway. Even those who have the winning cards do not always have a winning strategy and can be bluffed into folding. Use what you have within you to perfect your game and the cards will follow.

Remember, to give more service than is required and you will receive tenfold!

We all have a VOICE. And we all use it in very different ways. Some people are blessed to be able to ALWAYS speak their mind no matter what. They feel as though they do not owe the world anything. In fact THEY are so important that the WORLD may owe them something. Every little thing they think about is something that is very valuable to anyone they come into contact with. And for the benefit of man and womankind they are ready to educate us in the CORRECT way of being and acting.

The rules they live by are in fact what they refer to as a CODE. If we are lucky enough to TRULY understand what they are talking about we might just be able to be as successful as they have been. Only when we adopt their ways and vernacular are they able to HE...
