Dig Ditches

Dig ditches.

Dig ditches, when you’re trusting for things to somehow work out the advice given is to “dig a ditch.” In the Bible, In the book of 2 Kings 3 several kings and their armies were journeying through the wilderness. After seven days there was no more water for them or the animals traveling with them.

The kings didn’t know what to do. They asked if there was a prophet traveling with them. Elisha the prophet was with them and he was told to consult the Lord for a solution. The Lord heard Elisha and answered and told them to make the valley where they were, full of ditches.

Dig ditches when there was no water or sign of water? What else could they do? They had to follow God’s instructions. Not only did He tell them to make the valley full of ditches, he told them they would see no signs of rain but the valley would be full of water.

To dig ditches required faith, it was a sign that they believed the water would come. The water came. In abundance, it filled the valley, just like God said it would. What are you believing God to do in your life? What problem do you have that desperately needs solving? Dig ditches, show Him that you believe you’ll receive what you’re believing for. Trust Him today.

The Key to a Rich and Satisfying Life

wildflowers in the woods

What does a rich and satisfying life look like for you?

I talk a lot about living the life you really want, having clarity, and taking action. However, there’s something that I believe has to happen in order for you to live the life you really want. That something is that you have to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. You have to want to do life His way. You can have everything in place, know what you want, taking action to make it happen, and you can still be dying on the inside. You see, a rich and satisfying life is not possible without Him.

When Jesus is the head of your life, when you have relationship with Him, He will lead and direct you. When you follow His way, when you consult Him first, life is so much better. You’ll have the life you really want, and it will be a rich and satisfying life. Not many can say that about their lives. Will your life be rich and satisfying?

If you know there is more to life than the way you’re living it but you don’t know what to do about it let’s talk and create a strategy for getting you there. A rich and satisfying life is possible, and it’s possible for you. Schedule a complimentary call with me HERE.

3 Ways Clarity Will Change Your Life

Do you know what you want to have, be, and do? A lot of people live life without clear answers to these questions. They face each day agitated and stressed and are unsure why they feel that way.

These issues are then addressed with prescription meds, alcohol, or illegal drugs. What’s really being addressed are the symptoms of a bigger problem. That problem is lack of clarity.

Having clarity will change your outlook on life; it will give you life.

Here are a few things having clarity will do for you:

1. Reduce stress.

When you know what you want life becomes more simple. It’s easier to say “no” to the activities and people that pull you away from your goals and dreams.

2. Boost your confidence.

When you know what you want you walk a little taller. Clarity builds confidence.

3. Wake you up excited to live your life.

Knowing what you desire gives you something to focus on. When you’re focused you have purpose and that is what will wake you up excited each day. In my next blog post I’ll talk about how to stay motivated.

If you’re lacking clarity in your life I want to encourage you to take the time to get clear about what you’d like to have happen in your life. Not sure how to get clarity? This free download has 10 things you can do to have clarity. You can get it here: 10 Things For Clarity

I’m offering a complimentary conversation to help you get clear about what you desire in your life. You can schedule your clarity call HERE.

My journey

Life and our choices can take us along some winding paths. Did you know that I was an environmental toxicologist and a college instructor before becoming a personal development coach (you can read more about it here ABOUT ME )? I’ve learned so much in both careers and my experiences have made me a better coach.

Don’t be discouraged by the journey you’re on. Every experience that you have has a purpose. What roads have you traveled to get where you are today? Make the most of all of it. If you feel like you’re going through the motions and not living life the way you know it can be lived, let’s talk and get you on the path to living a life you want to wake up to each day.

What are you waiting on

I want to encourage you to live. Stop waiting for the conditions to be favorable, convenient, and even perfect; just live, right now, where you are.

This is exactly what Alia did after having several coaching conversations with me. She couldn’t decide what to do with her life and was in limbo. Here’s what she had to say:

“Rochelle was instrumental in making me get out of my limbo and take action. Today I am half way through a degree in healthcare and I feel great!!”

Lesson learned from FAU football

This is going to be quick. The 2016 college football season ended with Florida Atlantic University (FAU) having a record of 3-9 overall and 2-6 in their conference (espn.com). For the 2017 season they hired a new coach, the former offensive coordinator at University of Alabama, Lane Kiffin. To say the team has been transformed is an understatement. Lane Kiffin has turned a team with years of having a losing record, to a winning team. Incredible! Why am I even talking about football and coaching on my blog? I wanted you to see what a difference good coaching and good mentoring can make.

I am so proud of FAU football and grateful that I get to watch this transformation happen. It has inspired me so much. The lesson I learned from FAU football is that we all have so much potential in us and sometimes all it takes is having the right people in our lives or being in the right environment to pull it out of us. Be great.

Push past your feelings

I’m feeling lazy today, I think I’ll do nothing.

I’m doing a 30 day blogging challenge (Blogging Challenge) I won’t lie to you, the struggle is real. Seriously, there are days that I really have no desire to blog. Not only is there no desire, sometimes I can’t even think of what to blog about. Yikes! Not a good problem to have during a 30 day challenge. On days when I’ve felt this way do you know what I did? I wrote the blog post anyway! Yup. Those feelings are fickle and if I had given in to them I probably would have written about 2 blog posts so far, instead of 10.

Being consistent, keeping my commitments to myself, and not giving in to that voice telling me to throw in the towel, are why I am going to be successful with this blogging challenge. I want to encourage you today to not give in to feelings that are telling you to quit. Push past your feelings and do what you’ve committed to doing. You will be rewarded. Your whole life will change because when you’re consistent, when you’re keeping commitments to yourself, and when you’re doing what needs to be done even if you don’t feel like it, your life has to change because you have changed.

Is taking consistent action difficult for you? Do you need help to push past your feelings? Schedule a complimentary conversation with me let’s see how I can help. SCHEDULE CALL

10 Ways to Get Clarity

I have worked with thousands of small business owners and there is one commonality that I have observed with those not having the results that they want in their life and business…they lacked consistency.

Dictionary.com defines consistency as “steadfast adherence to the same principles, course, form, etc.” In my life, I was really good at starting things but not so good at finishing them. The way this presented in my life was inconsistent income, lack of clarity about the direction I should take in my life and business, frustration, and a whole lot of procrastination. I was stuck and couldn’t figure out how to get unstuck.

I eventually realized that in order to have the results that I wanted I was going to have to become the type of person that gets those results. The same was true for the small business owners that I worked with. If they wanted to have success in their businesses they needed to stop making excuses for why they were not doing the work and become they type of person that does the work.

When you make a decision to change, then things in your life and business can change. Are you ready to invest in you and develop the knowledge and skills necessary to have the success that you want in your life and business?
