I have a few tools in the daily routine that helps me stay on track with my gifts, talents, and passions.
One tool is a Google document where I collect all of my business victories, my passion list, my mission statement, my vision statement, bible verses that build me up, and affirmation statements.
And almost every day, I read (and sometimes out loud) what I wrote to myself over and over. There’s something powerful about writing down my intentions and then repeating them to myself daily.
Why is this important to do for us entrepreneurs? Because within 1 second of waking up every day, we worry. Our first thought is most likely going to be problems we’re dealing with in life and in business. Very few people have developed the self-discipline to wake up happy, cheerful, and grateful. If we’ll admit it, the enemy is trying to attack us, even in our dreams, but especially the moment our brain turns on for the day.
This is why it’s important that we use our WORD to defeat those thoughts and build our future!
Jesus says in John:
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. (John 15:16 NIV)
The words you use for your personal business development have power. God spoke the earth into existence. The bible even says “death and life are in the power of the tongue.” (Proverbs 13:21)
Your words have the power to build your business up or destroy it; to do what you were born to do, or to keep you from it.
I suggest you take some time to open up a Google document and begin by writing down a vision statement for your life. The statement is short and sweet, two sentences max, and it summarizes you and your business existence. Mine has remained consistent over time, and yours should be too.
Alex Miranda Vision Statement – I exist to help people uncover and bring to life the thing they were born to do.
Then, you should write down your mission statement to explain in measurable terms how you plan on accomplishing your vision.
One of my missions is to have a global movement called the Born to Do Method that will help millions of people uncover, discover and recover the thing they were born to do through books, seminars, and certifications.
Imagine if we all set out to intentionally SPEAK our visions to life and if we did it consistently… Like DAILY!
That’s why my blog is called DAILY Godpreneur, and it’s why I write daily… Because the power of words can change anything.
