Here's some truth that might take your breath away when you FULLY accept it. God wants to and will give you a life beyond your wildest dreams! Go ahead and read that sentence slowly and breathe it in. Close your eyes and let yourself envision the life of your dreams. Don't just see it, feel in your mind, body, and spirit. Think about the location, the relationships, and the way you will feel once you step into your DESTINY.

Again, God will give you every detail and more of your vision, but you have to BUILD THE CONTAINER TO RECEIVE IT! And this is the step most people skip and wonder why they struggle to achieve their goals. And yes, I'm talking about the structure, systems, and processes necessary to have a successful business, but the FIRST container you must develop is….YOUR…SELF!

Yep! You must dedicate time to developing your character, upgrading your mindset, and shifting your perspectives to receive PROSPERITY! I know and have worked with several people who are crazy talented, highly skilled, and gifted beyond belief…but their character is shady…their mindset is garbage, and their perspective is basic. They have a multimillion idea(s), yet they can't seem to transform it into profit. The reason? They refuse to do the internal work. They refuse to accept and acknowledge that their biggest obstacle is the person staring back at them in the mirror.

As a result, they exhaust their resources trying to change the external, when the internal is what needs the work and doing that work is mostly FREE. It requires soul searching, journaling, honesty, repentance, forgiveness, grace, mercy…oh, and READING! Yes, reading. Way too many people want information but refuse to seek knowledge. They want a quick fix, instant access, Google search responses, or a magic bullet. And although those things are quick…they will never yield longevity. Lastly…did I forget to mention God is not in the quick and easy business. In brief…" wisdom works slow."- Bishop T.D. Jakes

I encourage you to get still and be honest with yourself. Do you want to be prosperous? If so, cool…next ask yourself are willing to DO THE WORK OF BUILDING YOU? Are you willing to heal your broken places? Are you willing to train your mind to think differently? Are you willing to see problems from all angles so that you create a complete solution instead of half-assing it? Are you willing to admit that you don't know everything and seek help? Are you willing to do the uncomfortable and become teachable?

If you are serious about building a purpose-centered business, then you need to be intentional about building the most imperative container…YOU!
