Changing your mind = Transforming your life

Good morning all,

Are you where you want to be or where you expected to be at this point in your life?  If not, what are you willing to do about it?  The reason that I even started this blog was to inspire you to change the direction of your life if it was heading in the wrong direction.  I wanted to share what I was doing to overcome my personal struggles and what I was doing to overcome in life.

What happens when we start renewing our mind?  Either we get puffed up with knowledge or we take action and change.  I want you to have the latter.  I want you to be inspired to step up and step into the areas you fear.  Philippians 4:13 says I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me and it also says in 2 Timothy 1:7, that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.  God does not want you to be afraid.  He wants you to go out and conquer the world in a good way.  He wants you to use your influence to lead others to him.

In the past year, my life has undergone a significant shift or transformation because of my relationship with God, his guidance in his word, and renewing my mind, which renewed my belief in myself.  He gave me the courage to step out in faith and take action towards some lifelong dreams that I had let go of and thought were gone forever.  He gave me the confidence that I could still do what he created me to do and it wasn't too late to try.

I stepped out and went back to school to become a life and health coach. I implemented the material I was learning on myself and saw great results in my health, nutrition, finances, relationships, and work performance.  After practicing on myself, I took practice clients through the courseware and saw significant changes in them too.  They lost weight, got better jobs, got promotions, had relationships repaired, learned how to develop new relationships and developed new habits and new beliefs in themselves.  They were transformed too.  Today, they have different habits, different beliefs, and different outcomes than they had before.  It is amazing what God can do by changing just one life.  Will you let him do that for you?

I had a childhood dream of becoming a public speaker, yet I was paralyzed to take action.  As I continued this journey to change, God worked on me and worked on my self limiting beliefs to eradicate them.  As he did that, I got more courage to step out in faith.  Tomorrow morning, I will be speaking to a group of 65 employees from our city.  I'm excited and feel so blessed that God opened this opportunity for me to live a life that I dreamed about when I was 15.

Thank you all for reading my blog.  You inspire me to keep writing.  I hope to be more consistent in my writing, sharing with all of you what you can do to overcome in this life.
