Successful Blog Writing is Not a Real Challenge



I’m currently participating in a 30 day blog challenge hosted by Michelle Shaeffer. She designed the challenge to increase blog and writing skills, following and cyber-voice.  Today I must search for topics because unlike as Michelle promised, the daily topic ideas left her email with pure intentions of arriving in my email and giving me the inspiration I need to blog but decided to ditch showing up in my email.  In Michelle’s place I learned of a weekly challenge hosted by none other than WordPress.  Now things get interesting and I’m even more excited about blogging!



I Will Never Try Again!

Leave a comment

I said it and I mean it. I will never try again! I recently interacted with life coach and business strategist, Larvetta Loftin who taught me one of the most important lessons I’ll ever learn, “Trying is Lying”.

She told me those words the day I told her I’ll try to work on using her services. Deep down I felt a little like a child when she corrected me, but from a grown up perspective, she was 100% correct. She was correct in redirecting my hindering thought process. She was correct in what she said. Whether she created the phrase or borrowed it from someone else, she was correct.

Thinking back, trying is definitely lying. Walk with me to see how true that is. Let us visit all the times someone told you they’d “Try” to do or become something. It doesn’t matter what the situation; an invitation, a date, any particular act you asked of someone who disregarded you enough as a human being to lie to you and themselves by saying “I’ll Try”. And if you think hard enough, you can even recall at the time the tone in their voice or words as fake. I’ve learned to tell people I already know “I’ll Try” means no so its okay to just say no. But people honestly think they’re protecting your feelings and their self-interest by using the phrase “I’ll Try”, that horrible phrase. Well if you’re reading this, you now know better and will benefit from doing better.

Ask yourself how often one create success by trying? It’s not trying that creates success, its acting that creates success. Actions do speak louder than words so look back at all the times you’ve “tried” and see how many successes you’ve had. Now think back on all the times you’ve acted and the successes coming from those times. I bet the fruit or your acts outweigh your tries.

I’ve concluded that trying is for losers, phonys, and the broke minded. Doing is for winners, leaders, and the prosperous. No longer am I bound by trying to do something, trying to figure things out, trying to understand, trying to show up, trying to be present, trying to succeed. No longer am I bound by “trying”. A great network marketer Todd Falcone says “If you want to be successful DO what the Doers DO and DON’T DO what the DON’TERS DO!” A hilarious and profound statement as one begins to learn what to do and not to do to become the success he or she dreams.

Dreams do come true when you stop “trying” like the DON’TERS and start Acting! like the DOERS.

Declaration of Independence

On this the twenty fourth day of the fifth month in the year two thousand and eleven I hereby acknowledge my independence from suffering, pity and weakness. From this day forward I am awarded my freedom. I am free to be successful. I am free to be confident. I am free to be loved. I am free to serve my God in anyway HE desires. I am free to be wealthy, healthy, and wise. I am free to be the me God my Father designed.  

From this day forward I will no longer be dependent. I will no longer go without. I will no longer be a weakling in mind and spirit. I will no longer have to ask for help from selfish people. I will no longer have to look to man for my needs and desires. I will no longer have to live with the unkind at heart and spirit. I will no longer be bound to the chains of negativity. I will no longer be a victim of another’s past. I will no longer be a victim of my own past. I will no longer fight the battle of the weary, worn, scared and lost. 

From this day forward I will be a provider. I will be bold, confident, and relentless in my works. I will surround myself with positive and hungry people. I will surround myself with people who have the same desires as myself. I will surround myself with overachievers not underachievers. I will surround myself with love, joy, and happiness. God will surround me with peace and wisdom. God my Father is my way. He provides all my needs. I am rich in the same way my father in heaven is rich. I deserve everything he has put aside for me and from this day forward I will step into my inheritance. I will walk into my season. I am free to be independent. 

Feel FREE to change the date in this declaration to whatever date in time you choose to make yourself FREE!
