Your plan isn’t working because…

 

So, you made your plan and you’re ready to implement. You’re doing everything right, you followed the process, but something is still not right. You’re not getting the results you expected, you still feel empty inside, you’re not making the money you thought you would. Why?

The reason you’re still feeling stuck and not having the results that you wanted is because you are following YOUR plan and not HIS. You skipped the most important step to success, following His plan. You have to check in with God first and then you have to follow the plan that He sets before you. Until you do, you’re not going to have the results you want.

In my 4 week program, A Course in Personal Development, we go through this and more to help you move from a place of inaction to action in your life. Learn more about it here: LEARN MORE

I’m trying to transform my life but…


Have you ever bought a book or enrolled in a program that was supposed to transform your business or life but nothing changed? To be fair, nothing changed because you didn’t read the book and you didn’t engage in that coaching program. Why? It’s because there’s some growth that has to happen for you to become a person who takes action. 

Success (the completion of what you set out to do) doesn’t just happen. It’s intentional and it’s a process. Some people seem to be naturally driven and destined for success. It’s because they know what they want. Clarity will do that for you. 

That’s what A Course in Personal Development is about. It’s about becoming a person who knows what you want and taking action to have what you want. In 6 weeks I’ll walk you through the process of becoming a person who takes action. A person who doesn’t settle or live in the land of “I can do that if…” or “One day I’ll…” 

Join me for 6 life changing weeks. You can learn more about A Course in Personal Development here: LEARN MORE

From Information Junkie to Action Taker

horse-430441_1280

Are you one of those go-getter, I have an idea, let me implement it, type of person?  Or, are you more like I was (and still am sometimes), one of those, I have an idea, let me research it, and research it again, let me think about it, hmmm, let me think about this some more, onto the next idea type of person. I love learning. I love collecting information. I love thinking about the information I have collected. Implementation however, that’s another story.

Because I love researching (former scientist), I read lots of books and listened to lots of podcasts on how to take action. They all left me feeling frustrated though because they didn’t offer any advice that made me want to get up and take action. I finally got the message, the only way to take action is to take action!

Sorry people like me, it’s true. You have to become a different type of person and take action. Stop collecting information, trust me, you have enough. Stop thinking about the information you have, just start doing what you already know needs to be done. Choose one action and do it, today! Once you start, you’ll want to continue taking action. A body in motion stays in motion is true.

I’d love for you to share in the comments, ONE action you are going to take TODAY to create the life that you really want. I believe in you.

The REAL Reason You Are Stuck


I know all too well what it feels like to be stuck. I was stuck for a very long time. It was such a frustrating place to live. I knew that I was not where I was supposed to be but I wasn’t clear on where I wanted to be. I had no idea how to get unstuck. Does this sound familiar?

After many years I finally got clear on what I wanted to do, be, and have. This clarity allowed me to create a plan of action to change my life. Getting here was not easy for me. I had much loss, disappointment, and frustration…unnecessarily.

Yes, you read correctly. Much of my turmoil was unnecessary and caused by yours truly. While I did not like the journey to get where I am, unstuck. My experience allows me to help so many people, people just like you. So, get ready for what I’m about to tell you. It may hurt but if you consider what I am saying you’ll realize it’s true. If you do what I suggest, things will change for you.

The real reason that you are stuck is one of the following:

1. You have not sought the Lord for His plan for your life. 

When someone tells me that they’re stuck I know that they have not sought the Lord concerning His plan for their life. God promises to give us wisdom if we ask for it in faith (James 1:5).

If you’re stuck take some time, get quiet and seek the Lord. He says He’ll answer so keep seeking until you have your answer. If I told you I buried one million dollars in your backyard for you, I am pretty certain that you would not dig in one spot for 3 minutes and give up if you didn’t find it. You would keep digging until you found it. All day, all night, all week if you had to. Use that same approach for finding out God’s will for your life. He has it, don’t stop seeking Him until you have it.

2. You know God’s plan for your life but are choosing not to do it. 

If you have sought the Lord for His plan for your life and He has told you and you have chosen to go a different direction, you will feel stuck.

God’s plan for your life is good (Jeremiah 29:11). He is God, He knows everything. If He tells you to do something, it’s  best for you. Even if what He is telling you to do doesn’t seem to be the answer to what you currently need.  Even if what He says makes no sense to you. Even if what He says scares you because you don’t think you’re equipped to do it. He knows best, His way is best. Obey Him or continue living in the land of the stuck.

There you have it, the real reason you’re stuck. Find out God’s plan for your life and do it!

Don’t give up

I am going through a very challenging time in my life right now but I have had a peace that, like the Bible says, “surpasseth all uderstanding”.  I thank God for that peace everyday because there is no way that I could wake up ready to face the day without it. 

This weekend however, my peace was gone. I woke up and the enormity of my situation slammed on me and I started to dread. I knew that I had to get my eyes back on the Lord or I would be a mess. I decided to fast breakfast and lunch and read the Bible and pray. That was Saturday. Still no peace. On Sunday I went to church,  no peace. Sunday night I spent time listening to worship music, reading my Bible and praying. No peace. 

I know that something is going on. I’m praying in the spirit, fasting, reading the Word, being still and no peace. God is ministering to me during this time. Strengthening me, teaching me, but my heart is still troubled. I know that I can’t be nonchalant about this. The Lord tells me that many Christians do not receive because we do not do what it takes to receive. We do not seek hard after Him. We ask for wisdom and if we don’t receive it right away we move on. We pray for peace and when it doesn’t come we try to find it a different way. If the Word says it, it means we can have, be, or do it. We cannot give up until we receive it. 

I go back to my prayer closet because I want whatever is causing the unrest in my life to be gone. I refuse to accept it, pretend it’s not there, give satan an entrance into my life. I will pray in tongues (because I don’t know what the problem is) until I have peace, until I have the answer. 

Are you giving up before you get what you are seeking for? Jesus says seek and you will find (Luke 11:9-10). Jeremiah 29:13 says you will find God when you seek for Him with your whole heart. Don’t give up before you have found what you are looking for.

You want my whole heart??

  
God says for us to trust Him with our whole heart and lean not on our own understanding. Such simple instructions but initially so difficult to do. 
I can tell you one thing, you will not be able to trust God if you do not have a relationship with Him. When God says to SEEK Him, that’s what He means.  As you spend time in His word (the Bible), spend time being quiet before Him, spend time talking to Him, asking Him questions, He will reveal Himself to you. Your trust in Him will grow because you know who He is. He is faithful, His word is true, His plan for you is a good one, and He loves you. 
I encourage you today to get to know Him. I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed.

What difference do I want to make in the world

Today’s topic for the LiveYourLegend.net blog challenge is: What difference do I want to make in the world.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but I really do not like questions that make me go deep 🙂 Seriously, I don’t. I’m working on changing that though so here goes. I want people to pursue their dreams. I get so pumped up when I meet someone and they tell me about something that they want to do and then they proceed to tell me all the reasons why they’re not doing it. I want to scream, “Forget those excuses! You can do it, be it, experience it.”  I want the world to be filled with people who have joy in living.

I want to be remembered as someone who motivated and encouraged others to live their lives with joy, purpose, and passion. My website is arichandsatisfyinglife.com because that is what I want for everyone, I want us all to live a rich and satisfying life. I know it’s possible because in John 10:10 Jesus let’s us know that that is why he came, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10b). I am getting excited just thinking about it! Is the life you are living a rich and satisfying one? If not, make it one.

My elevator pitch

Happy New Year! Today’s topic for the Liveyourlegend.net blog challenge is to write my elevator pitch. An elevator pitch is basically me telling you what I do in just a few seconds. So, if we were to meet on an elevator and you asked me what I do, I would say to you:

“Hello, I’m Rochelle and I help people find joy in living.”

There you have it. I am passionate about helping people find joy in living. So many are going through the motions, living life on autopilot, hating it, and not doing anything about it. I want everyone to know that it doesn’t have to be that way, you don’t have to settle for what you currently have in your life. When you find joy in living you can better serve others. Imagine a world of people living life with joy. I like it!

One thing I’m proud of

peacock-214815_1280

Today’s blog challenge is for me to write about one thing I’m proud of. Wow, I think God is trying to get my attention. I was asked this question last week while completing a goal setting workbook, this week in a conversation with a friend, and now today. So, what’s one thing I’m proud of?

I am proud of how I handled the many, many challenges I faced in 2015. 2015 was a year of incredible challenges and growth for me. I was challenged spiritually, in my health, finances, career, and purpose. The challenges were relentless, I would end one and enter another. I felt like I was in a battle and I was. During this time I clung to the Lord. I know that He is the only reason that I am still sane and can sleep at nights. Seriously, if you do not have a relationship with the Lord I encourage you to “taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8 KJV Bible). My troubles did not go away but He helped me to live despite what was going on around me.

I am proud of myself for seeking God first and not losing hope. I am proud of myself for continuing to press in, asking questions, learning, staying in faith, asking more questions, trusting, believing, pressing in, asking questions, trusting. What are you proud of?
