You are not here by accident. You matter. YOU are a daughter of the King. YOU are God’s divine creation, his work of art, created to do good and exciting things, which God prepared in advance for you to accomplish.
And just as an artist works with clay, God is going to stretch and mold you in the process.
Your soul needs to be stretched to successfully meet the demands of life. God allows you to have a series of stretching experiences that will prepare you for what’s ahead.

Do you have a great idea that you've been thinking about, dreaming about, planning, or even procrastinating about? I love planning, and planning is important, but sometimes we focus so much on the planning that we never get around to taking action and pursuing our dream.
One sure way to failure is to over plan and miss your window of opportunity. You analyze the situation so much but you never actually take action. Perfectionism and fear of failure can keep you from moving forward.
Trust yourself to navigate any situation that might occur and just get going. Be willing to be imperfect and risk failure. The best products and inventions are usually discovered through repeated attempts and failure! Be willing to fail and use your failures as a learning tool for your next big idea.
Keep these two things in mind to keep you moving forward:

Most of my life I have struggled with the idea that I am even close to being Amazing, much less beautiful, successful, courageous, brilliant, etc. I have always been able to see the sparkle in others and watch them be amazing in who they are and what they do in the world. Seeing myself in their reflection was different. I felt less than, and never good enough. After spending a lot of time devouring God's word, journaling and learning about who I am, I suddenly had a revelation that changed my whole perception about being called Amazing and really owning it.

Summertime is a great time to head to the beach and do a little reflecting on your business year so far. For some reason, being at the beach doesn’t make it seem like work, at least for me anyway. It’s like taking a little field trip for your business.
Take a look at any strategic plans you made earlier in the year and celebrate your successes. It's also a good idea to take an in depth look at any areas where you haven't made as much progress as you thought you would by mid year.
Be kind to yourself. Sometimes circumstances change, new ideas weave their way into our plans, and your spirit may hear a whisper that tells you to change direction.
Here are four focus areas I have found helpful in evaluating my business and life in order to make sure I am still on track with where I want to be at the end of the year. It helps me determine where I might be out of alignment, or where I want to make a few tweaks to the plan. To me planning and dreaming go hand in hand. Ready? Here we go:

Perseverance- Defending the Dream to get your Breakthrough Part I
We all have dreams of doing great things for the kingdom and each of our individual dreams, or Life Purpose, matter.
In order to fulfill the plans and purposes of God, I believe that we each need to discover our own individual kingdom purpose and dreams because they are all connected to God’s master plan for us as a body of Christ followers.
We need to be intentional about finding and living out our purpose, and never give up.
From my own experience it is easy to give up and grow weary of the battle, but that is exactly what the enemy wants from us because he knows we are close to our breakthrough. I’m not giving up and neither should you!
