STAY READY: A weekend mindset shift…
On Friday I decided that I was going to spend my Saturday organizing. That was the message last week, right? I was attempting to get my life in order. My closet, finances, and my dad’s archives was on the list. Any items that I could not use would go out with the trash on Monday, or donated to a local shelter. That was the plan.
Saturday morning I woke up at four. Yes, 4:00 AM! Instead of sleeping in; I was awake. I jumped on my social media sites, and went to work. I began networking with some brands, and landed on a 12 days of Christmas list. That would’ve not happened if I wasn’t awake, and ready for action. After launching the first book in my children’s book series, I’ve been looking for ways to get my book in the hands of every child this season. (If you haven’t purchased it yet, you can purchase the book here.) After that happened I was off and running from there. I had friends tagging me in post on Facebook for other networking opportunities. All I could think was this is what I prayed for, keep going!
Sunday morning, I was at church and the message was about staying ready. Ohhhhhhh! I clearly needed to hear that message. I could not waste anymore time getting ready, I had to switch to “STAY READY!” There was something I wasn’t doing to keep myself from going to the next level. I was in the corner getting ready. As my dad would say, that was the “WRONG ANSWER.” How will I be able to change the world if I am in the corner getting ready? If the wealth is already within me, does that mean I AM THE ONE keeping myself from greatness? Well, the answer is Yes! This is the time to step it up a notch, and continuously stay on task to be ready at all times.
When opportunity knocks will you be ready?
