The Power of Monthly Reflection

In my last post I shared my morning routine and shared how how you start your day can impact the results in your life and in your business.

If you missed that post be sure to check it out here. Today I’m sharing about the power of monthly reflection. Taking the time to reflect not only benefits you as you move forward in life and in business, but it’s also a spiritual principle.

So many times in scripture God instructions His people to remember, and not just to remember but to reflect.  

One popular example of this type of instruction that stands out for me is in Exodus 20:8-11:

8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

In this scripture, God commands us to remember and then goes on to explain why we need to not only remember, but also reflect on the meaning of the Sabbath.

One of the things I love about the start of a new month is that it offers you the opportunity to reflect on God’s goodness.  In fact, in my Passion Planner (one of the resources that I mentioned in the last blog post) they have a monthly reflection section, in this section you have to complete the following questions:

1. What was the most memorable part of this past month? Describe it.

2. What were the three biggest lessons you've learned in this past month?

3. Review your monthly activity. Are you happy with how you spent your time? If not, what steps can you take next month to adjust them?

4. What did you accomplish this past month? What are you most proud of?

5. How are you different between this past month and the month before it?

6. What or who are you especially grateful for this past month?

7. Name three things you can improve on this upcoming month?

8. From 1-10, how do you feel overall about this past month?

I enjoy doing this exercise on a monthly bases and I find that it helps me to stay focused, motivated and encouraged. What are your thoughts on monthly reflection? Do you practice monthly reflection? If so, do you have a structed reflection that consist of answering questions like the Passion Planner or does it consist of something else?

How you start your day matters

Does how you start your day matter?  I would say ABSOLUTELY!  How you start your day impacts the rest of the day and can even impact the week, the month, and the year. 

When you start your day right it helps you to be more productive.  I’ve found that doing these 3 key things every morning has allowed me to experience supernatural productivity in my business.

Watch the video below or read the post to discover the 3 ways I start my day right and how this has led to supernatural productivity in my business. 

Do you select a word for the year?  One of the key ways you can stay focused this year is to select a word to focus on for the year.  This year I was led to the word ELEVATE.  My goal this year is to elevate!  How about you?  What’s your word?  I would love to know so be sure to post in the comments below.

Do you select a guiding/anchor scripture for the year? My guiding scripture for 2023 is Joshua 1:9 

Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

This is a command, a declaration from God not just to Joshua, but to me, to you, to all of us as Believers to Be strong and courageous and to not be afraid or discouraged this year!

In addition to the word and scripture for the year I have a morning routine that helps me to stay focused and to start my day right.  This includes 3 key things I do every morning to start my day right, which has created supernatural productivity in my business:

1. Devotion, Meditation, and Prayer

For almost 20 years I’ve had the practice of reading a devotional in the morning to hear a message from God.  This year I’m reading the devotional “Quiet Times with God” by Joyce Meyers.  In the devotional I read the daily scripture, message, thought of the day, and additional scripture versus to go deeper on the topic.  

My goal is not just to read the devotion but to meditate on the message and how it applies to my life and business.  After reading my devotion and meditating on the messages, I have prayer.  To pray for the day, to show my gratitude and to ask for God’s guidance and protection. 

2. Journaling

Journaling is a fairly new practice for me.  It was recommended by my business coach a couple of years ago and ever since then, I’ve added it to my daily routine.  I have two sets of journals.  Believe Bigger by Marshawn Evans Daniels it’s a Devotional Journal.  It is helping me to work on my unbelief and teaching me to believe bigger.  It’s a 100 Day Devotional Journal that includes scripture, a message, a prompting question to journal on and then a prayer.  This has really helped to me focus on Believing Bigger in 2023.

3. Plannning

The third and final step is planning. I use three resources for my planning.  For the past 5 years or so I have been using the Passion Planner to help me plan out my dreams, goals, and vision.  The passion planner has a mind map, that helps you to map our your goals for the year.  Then the month and then weekly/daily activities.  

Lastly and probably the most important part of my morning routine is the business meetings with God.  During those meeting I sit with God to plan out my business activities.  I use the Faith Strategy Business Planner to help plan out my business day and my B.E.S.T. Marketing Planner to plan out my marketing activity for the day.  

One of the key things I review daily is my marketing foundation (purpose, mission, vision, calling), which is actually something that we will be working on in the upcoming Marketing Workshop:  Shift from Stuck/Struggling to Success with 5 faith-based principles on Thursday, February 2nd at 2:00 pm ET.  Click on the button below to join me for the workshop! 

All of this is done with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. All of these things may seem like a lot, but it takes about 30-45 minutes in the morning and helps me to be clear, focused and aligned for the day and doing these things have led to supernatural productivity in my business. I’ve been able to accomplish so much more in my business by having this practice so far in 2023.

Do you have a morning practice?  Do you feel it’s important to start your day with a routine or ritual that helps you to be more productive?  Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments.

8 ways a mastermind group can help you grow your business

I’ve been involved in mastermind groups for over 8 years. Mastermind groups are an amazing way to grow your business. Through masterminds, I have been able to gain new clients, grow my business, and make valuable connections.

So what exactly is a Mastermind? The concept of business masterminds became popular from the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill defined as “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony. No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind [the master mind].”

I also like the definition provided in this article Mastermind Groups: Everything You Need to Know by Ramsey Solutions, it says, “a Mastermind group consists of a small group of people who want to grow in some capacity at an accelerated rate. Because of this, they commit to getting together regularly—online or in person—to discuss goals, get support and advice for their challenges, and build a network of like-minded professionals who keep them accountable.

In this post I will share 8 ways a mastermind can help to grow your business.

1. Connections

When you are in an intimate mastermind you make lifelong connections and friendships. These connections allow you to grow in life and in business. With these connections it opens you up to the member’s of your masterminds network and connections, which helps you to go further faster

2. Collaborations

Your mastermind peers can be great collaboration partners. I have partnered with and collaborated with several individuals from the various mastermind groups that I have participated in. These collaborations have helped to grow my business

3. Referrals

Referrals can be one of the best ways to grow your business and I have given and received several referrals from members of my mastermind groups.  Although giving referrals is not a requirement for being in mastermind group, it is a natural thing that tends to occur in a mastermind group

4. Focus

Being involved in a mastermind group that also includes content and curriculum really helps you to focus on the key things that you need to do to grow your business

5. Accountability

A mastermind group helps you to stay accountable to the things that you said you will do and the goals that you set for your business

6. Support

A mastermind group can offer you a safe and supportive environment to be vulnerable with what is going on in your life and in your business

7. Resources

Through my mastermind group I have learned about various tools that have helped me to be more effective and efficient in my business

8. Clarity

One of the advantages of a mastermind is being able to come to the group with a specific issue, problem, struggle or challenge and getting a fresh perspective on how to come to a solution

And this is why I have been a member of various mastermind groups and why I lead and facilitate my own mastermind group, The Master’s Mind:  A powerful mastermind for women of faith in business. 

As a member of The Master’s Mind, you will get all of the above and more. In addition, this mastermind focuses on not only your business growth, but your personal and spiritual growth too.

5 Lessons I Learned While on Vacation in Greece

July- Blog Post 1

I believe in the importance of balancing your life.  I know the term “Work Life Balance” is used a lot, but I could never understand how people balance work and life, your work is a part of your life, so I prefer to call it professional life v. personal life balance.

I believe in the importance of working hard, but I also believe in the importance of taking time off from work to enjoy personal time often.

Because of this belief, I routinely take vacations and time off from work (professional life).  I try to take a least one week vacation every quarter, so by the end of the year, I would have taken four weeks (a full month) off.  This to me is sooo important in order for me to refresh, reflect, and recharge so I can be the BEST person I can be.
