Wow, what a week!! I had an amazing power training session at the Zrii Headquarters in Salt Lake City on Saturday and a huge focus was having Faith, believing in this awesome opportunity! That's been the biggest thing for me throughout my journey so far in my home-based business. Faith in the leaders I have been so fortunate to meet in this opportunity; faith in the system they have proven over and over to be VERY successful; faith that network marketing is a better way to provide for my family financially. It is definitely an up and down roller coaster ride, I won't lie, but it's so exciting at the same time. As I've mentioned, personal growth is something I am really focusing on and this opportunity is providing me a lot of opportunities to grow personally! I have my good and my bad days, but I will not give up. I will keep learning from my mentors and pushing myself a little more everyday. I not only want success for myself and my family, but I want to show others how to reach their dreams as well!
Sunday, my church service tied right into this whole idea of Faith! It was AWESOME! For the next 30 days we are covering what Sr. Pastor Jud Wilhite calls Neon Faith. This week was called "Radical Faith". Key points: Learn to see with faith; Keep looking up even when things are down; Step out in Faith. It's about putting Faith into action in your life, and that can be different for everyone!
One of the scriptures was Matthew 6:30-33: Why do you have so little faith? "So Don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear? These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
I do believe this wholeheartedly. I will continue to look up even when things are down, because as said in Hebrews 11:1: Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
These words spoke so powerfully to me! Especially because I am at a point in my career where I am trying something new, but something that feels so right and I HOPE it will be! I finally have more flexibility with my time to spend more with my girls and husband. I have the opportunity to make financially what I want to make. No more working for someone else who is telling me how much I can make or when I can take time off or how long I can take off. I am on a mission to be successful with this home-based business. I have SO much to learn, but that's just what I'm doing on a daily basis....LEARNING and Growing!
I love a post Sr. Pastor Wilhite put on Facebook and then said again on Sunday, "Tell God how big your problem is and then tell your problem how big your God is"! NO problem is too big as long as you have FAITH!
I have already had some success in using some things I learned on Saturday and plan to see even more in the next couple of days as I continue to follow the system laid out for us. I'm also looking forward to a great trip back to Connecticut to see my husband's family. We have not been there since Christmas and can't wait for them to see how much the girls have changed! So here's to another great week!!
