Entrainment is probably one of the most effective ways to encourage change within people. People tend to adopt the attitudes, beliefs, and habits of people around them, whether they consciously choose to or not. 12 Step programs utilize the the effects of entrainment, emphasizing the need to attend meetings, sometimes once a day, so recovering addicts can entrain to a newly adopted way of life .

While I was growing up and in grade school I was not the stellar student. I had a hard time sitting in a chair at a desk and concentrating on what was happening in front of the class. I was placed away from the windows on purpose as I had a tendency to look out the window and "daydream" when I should have been doing schoolwork. I was constantly being confronted with the fact that I was "doodling" on my papers and on by textbook covers...so was my life as a right brained child. What my…Continue
"It's Time. About that time. Time to make a change and we are the people we can do it!" I remember singing this son when my oldest son was about 2 years old. Each time, I begin thinking about making a change...this song floods my mind and becomes my marching song. (Artist: Winans Song: It's Time)
For several years I have followed Dan Miller's format for goal setting template and now is that time to work on goals in order to have them…Continue

I heard an awesome message from Bishop Tudar Bismark. He spoke about when God blesses life, what that means. T
he first time we see God use the word bless is in Gen. 1:22 when He blesses the fishes and the birds he created. He said, "Be fruitful and multipy." The next time He uses the word bless is in Gen. 1:28 when He blesses man and female. He said, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over…Continue
Feel like giving up?
I do! More than I like to admit. To overcome my own mental obstacles I do a lot of self talk (that’s when you talk to yourself).
I tell myself:
1. I can do it.
2. If this debt free thing doesn’t work I can always go back into debt.
3. I want to be weird (not normal).
4. Don’t give up.
This year has had its ups and downs. I have reached many of my personal goals that I set at the beginning of the year. I have also fell…Continue

In military strategy it widely accepted that it requires more troops to attack and invade an opposition then to defend. The number can vary, but normally 3-5 times more at a conservertive level. Why? The defender has more to lose. The defender has a greater cause. They are the ones being attacked. This is also true in business. If you can identify clearly why you are in business. What good you company bring to the marketplace, knowing this, when being attacked you will be far more…Continue

There are plenty of excuses. Some are legitimate excuses, but yet some are just plain procrastinations. It’s very easy for me to come to the conclusion that we’re all just human, and we procrastinate because that’s life; things come up! But I’m not going to give any credit towards that line of thinking here, because to tell you the truth; that’s just another excuse.
Stop blaming your inability to do something on your existence. Your existence is the reason why…Continue
At Kent Julian’s Speak It Forward Boot Camp (http://www.48days.net/group/speakerssuccess),
we attendees heard many truths and one-liners. Among the most remarkable for me, an educator, was “The one simple degree between very hot 211 degree water and boiling 212 degree water can move ships.” Always looking for classroom application, I ponder
what brings the one degree “ah-ha” moments—not just for students but for teachers as…

Church was really good this weekend. Ever have one of those weekend's at church where you just feel that the pastor is talking directly at you? You leave feeling energized and excited? I felt like that yesterday after church. What was being taught was Noah's long obedience to God. How Noah, in his…Continue

When you take up this challenge, it must be done day by day, not moving on to Day 2 until the requirements of Day 1 have been successfully completed. And so on with all the subsequent days. Also,…

Staying true to the style of my personal blog, I'm throwing this post in here just for fun! It's an easy way to blow a few minutes......and if you need it to mean something, or to learn something from it, then just tell yourself when you're done: "There is profit in all labor!" (Proverbs 14:23)
As always, feel free to comment. This one was fun!

I am a person who can't walk passed a mess. I see things out of order, laying around with no home, or piled up haphazardly, and I want to do something. This is clearly a natural bent for me and part of my gifting. I want to apply it more thoughtfully and deliberately because I think I would find a lot of joy in this general work area. Any ideas on how I can generate income based off of this tendency?
I've just received my material from a correspondence courseI'm taking. This is going to be a GREAT WEEKEND of photography. I had forgotten some things I learned years ago. First know your subject. Second draw attention to your subject and…Continue

What happens when both you and your spouse decide to start working for yourselves and be the big scary E word? (Entrepreneur!)
God gives you little glimpses into His heart by allowing you to learn to serve each other in the strangest of ways. Ways most people don't get to experience. Our everyday looks different now that we're both working our own businesses. And this week I am honored to say it was a blessing to be served by my husband in a pretty big…Continue
