Stop Trying and Do

Set Your Mind and Keep It Set

Happy #fall2020,

#Wifepreneur #Mompreneur #Coaches and #Servicebasedwomeninbusiness as I end my busy workday, I wanted to jump in quickly to encourage you to set your mind and keep it set.

Every day I do my best to start my day out with a bit of devotion. It gives me the boost that I need to move throughout the day. It helps me maintain #focus and it keeps my mindset on my #vision and #goals.

I’m always amazed when I read something that is meant to feed my soul, then God gives me a two for one deal.

I’m reading one of #joycemeyer devotional books ~ #trustgoddaybyday 365 Daily Devotions.

Sept 21st devotion titled, “Set Your Mind and Keep It Set” was so on point that I had to go back and revisit it.

I love the analogy she used. She said, “Wet concrete can be moved with ease and is very impressionable before it dries or “SETS”. But once it does set, it is in place for good. It cannot be easily molded or changed. The same principle applies to setting your mind.” She went on to say, “To set your mind is to determine decisively what you will think, what you believe, and what you will or will not do—and to set it in such a way that you cannot be easily swayed or persuaded otherwise.

The reason setting your mind and keeping it set is so important is that there’s not much hope of being able to resist the temptation if you don’t make up your mind ahead of time concerning what you will do when you are tempted.

Oftentimes, #smallbusinessowners get distracted by too many ideas or the latest fad ( #shinysyndrome ), going off in a million directions and never completing anything. You not only lose time, but you also lose money.

I know all too well how easy it is to get distracted. Someone would present an idea to me and sometimes the idea looked like it would be good for my business model. I quickly learned that everyone else’s ideas may have been a good idea, but not the best idea for me. I’d look up and see that my dream would be sitting on the back burner while I was yet again building someone else’s.

I made a conscious decision to keep my mindset on my business, my goal, my dream. I started telling anyone that came to me with a good idea, that I didn’t mind supporting them, but thanks but no thanks. I’m going to stay focused on the dream/#goal that God gave me.

Colossians 3:2 tells us to set our minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth. Paraphrased, set your mind, and keep it on your God-given dreams and goals. Don’t allow other things to shift your #mindset or to take you off #systems

I’ve found that writing my goals and visions down is very helpful for me. You know that saying, Right the vision… Make it plain!

It helps me stay on track. One way to stay on track is to put #SYSTEMS in place for your business and your life.
