cross

You will know the infallible recipe that changed the history of all world. Believers and unbelievers, scepticals, atheists, etc.. we all live in the calendar AC (After Christ).
Let’s see that “Recipe”!… 

John 3:16 

” For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

The lord Jesus took the cross and consumed victory at the calvary, and so are those who do the same!…No wonder why He said: Take your cross!…The question is how, in what way?

God gave what was most precious to Him, irreplaceable and unique!… That’s exactly step number 1 for those who want to follow the greatest recipe of success of history!…Think for a bit!…

What do YOU have that is most precious, irreplaceable and unique? …Some moments to reflect, and you will reach the conclusion that is nothing physical or material, rather YOUR OWN LIFE!…Isn’t it?

Step number 1: Give your life to God, by following the path of Sacrifice. But what you may ask? Well, sacrifice your fleshly desires, cravings, lusts, emotions and feelings that are contrary to God’s will. Sacrifice the grudges, malice of the eyes, lies, promiscuity, sexual immorality, adultery, etc..

Step number 2: Believe in Him, by living a live of obedience and faithfulness to God’s word, a total surrender.

The two ingredients of the infallible Recipe are : Sacrifice and Obedience

DO THEM and you WILL NOT PERISH ( Here on earth you will be successful) and you WILL HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE ( After all the sacrifices done the reward will come, our eternity with God)

The heroes of faith, overcame battles, challenges and went against the odds!…Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Elijah, Gideon, Daniel, David, etc…are just few of the all examples we have got in the Holy Scriptures. All of them had 3 things in common!…They were “Blind”, “Deaf” and “Numbed”. I’m not speaking physically wise rather spiritually.

Bear with me.

If you want to succeed you have to be just like that:

1st- Blind for the circumstances around you. When one wants to conquer something doesn’t matter the adversities, setbacks, etc…You just keep going. Please see the post of the Rule of faith.

2nd- Deaf for the negativity all around you, either by what people say or by the words that come to your mind, doubts, fears, etc…

3rd- Numbed to emotions and feelings. One has to live by faith, meaning, believing in the invisible so that the visible may come to pass.

Hebrews 11:32-34

New King James Version (NKJV)

32 And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets: 33 who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises,  stopped the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

When one starts climbing a mountain, it’s very easy at the very beginning!…One is full of energy and highly motivated to get to the top peek. However after a couple of hours, maybe minutes, the fatigue starts to kick in!…

Many are those that start climbing, nevertheless few are those who finish what they have started!… They become weary, discouraged and eventually they give up. In mountaineering there is an expression called ” Death Zone”, let me explain it.

          The “Death Zone”, in mountaineering, refers to altitudes above a certain point where the amount of oxygen is not high enough to sustain human life. This point is generally tagged as 8,000 m (26,000 ft) or plus. Many deaths in high-altitude mountaineering have been caused by the effects of the death zone, either directly (loss of vital functions) or indirectly (wrong decisions made under stress, physical weakening leading to accidents).

The higher you want to go, the harder it is!…And maybe you will have to face the “Death Zone”!… In life it’s not different at all. We keep on climbing, climbing, pushing and pushing and then when things get really hard one gives up!…That meant that you were almost there!… 

Perhaps, at this very moment that you read this blog post you are facing your  “Death Zone”….Things are getting harder, maybe on the brink of failure and disaster. You have to keep pushing your boundaries and your limits, sacrificing and sacrificing!…Do not allow your “Death Zone” to prevail, and affect your intellect, by making decisions upon emotions, feelings and doubts.

After you reach the top, the view is awesome and you can see things really small out there!…That’s how God sees our problems!..It’s nothing for Him. However we have to keep on climb and be ready to face our “Death Zone”.

Nearly 4,000 people have climbed Mount Everest since 1953 when Sir Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay first scaled it. More than 200 people have died on the slopes of the giant peak.

Isaiah 40:17

“All nations before Him are as nothing, And they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless.”

Why there are people who succeed and others don’t? We may think on many different issues, explanations, lack of opportunities, resources, etc.. However, the truth is that there are those that didn’t have resources, opportunities and weren’t born with a silver spoon in the mouth and still they managed to succeed.

What made the difference? Luck?  To be honest with you, I don’t believe in that,I rather go with the saying:

“Shallow men believe in luck or in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

One of the great characteristics of successful people is their spirit. That’s it!…What’s inside of you.

If your spirit if strong, determined, perseverant, bold, courageous,entrepreneurial,  revolted, unsatisfied, challenging and daring, then you’re gathering almost everything you need to overcome.

God works with our spirit!..  Give a glance on below Scripture:

Proverbs 20:27

” The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord,(…)”

If our spirit is fearful, doubtful, week, shy, conformed, intimidated, timid, nervy and indecisive than His “Light” will be very low or almost inexistent, like the 20w bulb.

If your spirit is strong that His “Light” will be like a 100W bulb. You will be enlightened, and surely you will overcome .

What’s the Voltage of your Spirit?

Most of us have been conditioned to blame something outside of ourselves for the parts of our life we don’t like. We blame our parents, our bosses, our friends, the media, our coworkers, our clients, our spouse, the weather, the economy, our lack of money — anyone or anything we can pin the blame on. We never want to look at where the real problem is — ourselves.

But the real truth is that in majority of the cases ( There are some exceptions) there is only one person responsible for the quality of the life you live.

That person is you.

Majority of the times, is the lack of vision, comfort zone, laziness, complacency, fear, doubts and complexes that are the real hindrance to our success.

It’s like a back seater giving instructions to the driver. Whilst you aren’t grabbing the wheel, you have to go where the driver wants. On the back seat you don’t have full control. Many depend on others for everything, the employer, the government, institutions, etc…The issue is that many times the company you work for goes has to make cuts and you are made redundant!…The economy comes to a “Credit Crunch”, the benefit is removed, etc.. Your “Car” stopped  and you stopped with it!…

Mourning, complaining and crying over it, will not change the situation!… You gotta be the driver!….

When you make decisions, things change. Either you’re instigating the change or you’re waiting for things around you to change. Don’t wait. It’s much better to be in the driver’s seat, as long as you trust your abilities.

You have in your hands the power to produce!… God has made us to his image and likeness. God was a “Producer”. He created things out of nothing!…The same ability was given to men!…

Grab the wheel and be the driver.

Deuteronomy 15:10

(…) because for this thing the Lord your God will bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand.”

I would like to share with you 3 steps to succeed in everything you do.

  1. Confidence - Our confidence cannot oscillate, waver. It has to be constant and unshakable.  Trust completely.
  2. Endurance – Perseverance is the word that better describes endurance. life is like a marathone!…We must finish what we started. Keep going even against the odds and you will cross the finish line.
  3. Live by faith - It’s about using your intellect and rational faith upon the word of God rather than in what you feel, see or hear. It doesn’t really matter third-party opinions. I believe because it’s written and God’s word cannot go back empty. Period.

Hebrews 10:35-38

35 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. 36 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:

37 “For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.38 Now thejust shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”

The 7th Step to Prosperity is to have…

  • Inner Drive

Finding motivation for your job,career, business or whatever one does to succeed, may be the hardest thing to do. Most of us start out highly motivated for our job, idea, business but then that enthusiasm and motivation fades away. The basic job duties you used to enjoy become mundane and boring. How can you find your personal drive to succeed? Here are some tips that may help:

  1. Be passionate about what you do.                                                                                                                  No matter the area you really want to be successful, you must love what you do. That will give you an extra motivation to go all the way.
  2. Have a positive attitude.                                                                                                                                          Come to work with a positive attitude. One of the biggest reasons why people start to lose motivation or their job is because they have a bad attitude. If you always look at the bad things about your job, project or  business, it will be easy to dread going to work. Stop the sour attitude by exercising before work. If you can exercise before you get to the office, it will put you in a good mood because your body naturally releases endorphins when you exercise. Endorphins help to improve your mood and this can easily help you have a positive attitude when it comes to work.
  3. Find that Motivation on Faith.                                                                                                                               When everything goes wrong and it seams that there’s no way, that glimpse of hope comes, trough faith!…You believe that your help you come even against all the Odds.
  4. Growth and expansion.                                                                                                                                         Do not accept a flat life, aim to grow and expand. Successful entrepreneurs are constantly finding ways to expand. This keeps them going.

In our path to prosperity we must keep ourselves focused. As time goes on,  there exists the possibility of losing steam and getting off-track.  We have to develop the momentum and stamina required to achieve success, there must be…

  • FOCUS

Concentration is intense mental focus. It requires giving total attention to the matter at hand, whether a subject or activity. It is turning one’s awareness so completely to the subject or activity present that all else melts away. Concentration is a power, fundamental to great achievement in all fields of endeavor.

“I am easily distracted.”

Solution: Too many of us work in chaotic, over stimulating environments. As your situation permits, create a healthy, supportive work space. Limit noise and potential interruptions. During times you are working, turn off cell phone, computer, TV and internet. Put a “do not disturb” sign on the door. Gather materials before you start working (pencils, pens, paper, books, or other items).

Determine your own highest productivity hours. Some of us are morning people fresh and ready; others are best during late night hours.When possible, schedule according to your personal preferences so you can most easily focus.

“My overactive mind gets in my way.”

Solution: If you have inner distractions like guilt from the past or worry about the future, consciously focus your mind. Assign your mind a single task with time parameters. 

If your mental chatter continues, record your worries or to-do’s on paper. Now they are safe for later. Let them go. Re-focus on your assignment. If you are reading, researching or engaged in a business interaction, taking notes can help you stay on task. “When you write down your ideas you automatically focus your full attention on them. Few if any of us can write one thought and think another at the same time. Thus a pencil and paper make excellent concentration tools.

“I’m bored. I just don’t like some of the things I have to do.”

Solution: Front load your work session with less preferred tasks. Choose an empowered attitude. If you are going to do something, do it wholeheartedly. Engage your senses. Be curious. Learn. Joy can be found in the doing of the activity, not just the topic or the result.

“I fizzle out before I finish.”

Solution: Try pushing yourself a bit further than you think you can go. Develop your concentration skills by exercising your mental focus capacity. There are two kinds of people, those who understand how to work through frustration and those who give up.When you find yourself in the middle of a task and want to walk away, decide on “five more.”

Go the distance by reading the next five pages, writing the next five emails or making those next five phone calls. Athletes get a second wind by pushing through initial fatigue; you can reach renewed mental focus by refusing to give up in moments of frustration.

“I work for so long that my mind is exhausted.”

Solution: Find a healthy balance. It’s not how long you work but how productive you are that determines success. Often, more can be accomplished in a few hours of concentration than in days of effort diluted by distraction. Working too long can be counter-productive and increase your rate of errors. Your mind and body work in rhythmic cycles. Take regular breaks during long work periods. Breathe deeply. Get up and stretch. Enjoy a glass of water. Listen to an inspired song. Get some fresh air. Then return to your work.

“I don’t care how much power, bril­liance or energy you have, if you don’t har­ness it and focus it on a spe­cific tar­get, and hold it there you’re never going to accom­plish as much as your abil­ity war­rants.”

The 2nd key point for prosperity.

  •  Dare to succeed.

Successful people dare to succeed! It is very common to be afraid of failure at the same time as many people are actually afraid of success.  If we want to advance in our careers we have to dare – taking risks, chances, new challenges and the next steps in the career ladder.

Learning to take initiatives and challenges and to do self-marketing doesn’t come naturally to many people. This is a process that should start with small steps where each outcome would make you stronger and encourage you to take further steps and to dare more. It takes a lot of energy and many “deep breaths” to start with but in time you will get more self-esteem and the process becomes a lot easier.

One must go for  challenge, otherwise will will be stuck in life!…Push your limits, be bold and courageous.

I was thinking about SAS. Who are they?

Special Air Service or SAS is a corps of the British Army constituted on 31 May 1950.They are part of the United Kingdom Special Forces and have served as a model for the special forces of many other countries all over the world.

Do you know their Motto? WHO DARES WINS.

Ask- What is the worst that could happen – would you get NO for an answer? So? You have more chances to get what you want if you ask than if you don’t dare at all.

Change- If you are not happy with the current situation dare to take actions and make a change.

What made David to be what he was? The answer is Goliath!…David was the only on that dared and  challenged the giant.

What happened?

I samuel 17:25

“(…)and it shall be that the man who kills him the king will enrich with great riches, will give him his daughter, and give his father’s house exemption from taxes in Israel.”

Goliath changed David’s life..From a simple shepherd to become part of the royal family and full of riches.

Are you facing your Giant?

I will share with you some key points that are very important to be successful!…I will speak about the mindset of prosperity. I will helped you to transform a poverty consciousness to one of abundance and wealth. You will learn trough a series of posts to gain confidence and courage to step outside your comfort zone. Today will be the first part.

  1.  Vision
  • Vision is a picture or idea you have in your mind of yourself, your business, or anything this is going to happen. A clear vision helps you pursue dreams and achieve goals; an idea of the future, a strong wish. A vision that is clear will open your mind to the endless possibilities of the future.

A vision will help you to overcome obstacles in the way and helps you hold on when times are tough. A vision that is well defined helps you to focus and create a purpose that becomes your measurement for your success. If you do not have a vision of who you want to be, how you want to succeed or what you want out of life, you begin to lack drive and your life becomes just an order of events.

Ask yourself a question..

Where I’m I going to be in 1 year’s time?

What am I going to achieve in 5 years time?

Doing what I am doing now, what will be my expectations?

One has to “Aim high” or “Raise the Bar”. You gotta thing BIG!…

Many are living here in UK in benefits, average 9 to 5 job, working to pay bills, just to make “Ends meet”. The first step is to let go of that narrow vision and short-sighted way of thinking!..

I will post the next points over the next days!…

Human beings have a peculiar way of giving excuses in order to justify their lack of action upon certain matters.

Usually people say:

  • I have done it already
  • I received a no
  • I didn’t succeed
  • I’ve knocked all doors

Well, if this is your case, I’m pretty sure that there’s something that you din’t try it yet….it may be what you were just looking for!…

DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!….

Due to circumstances, some people are led to think that they can’t be successful in life!… Well, let me present a Born Champion!…YOU!…..

The World Health Organisation defines a minimum “normal” ejaculation as at least 2 ml and containing at least 40 million sperm. It is not unusual for some ejaculations to contain 5 ml or more, with 150-250 million sperm.

Among millions, You were the strongest, the more perseverant and determined, it’s just in your genes….You are a Born Champion!…

Just keep on going…YOU CHAMP!…

One of the main difficulties that we encounter in life is to be self critic, to look to our mistakes and weaknesses. Often we tend to turn a blind eye to it and try to find a “Escape Goat” in order to justify our failure or underachievement.

Often we see sentences like this: My boss doesn’t like me, my husband doesn’t care, my wife speaks to much, I don’t have this, I lack that, etc…The list is endless. Little do we know that majority of times the answer is right there in front of us!..

That’s it! Do you want to know the reason why we don’t achieve what we are suppose to? Look in the Mirror!..

Let’s stop making excuses for our mistakes and start looking to inside of us!… We will find ( Most of the times) the true way of breakthrough.

Here goes some tips to get you started:

  • Ask yourself: What is in my power to do?
  • What am I NOT doing?
  • Why I’m behaving in such a way?
  • Am I listening more that speaking?
  • Do I accept rebuke and criticism?
  • Am I giving heed to my emotions: Doubts, fear, anxiety, negativity, malice, pride?

I’m pretty sure that the list goes on. Surely we can apply this in every single aspect of our daily lives!…

Matthew 7:3
“And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?”
