So much gold in this week’s readings and videos!
I now know The Formula…and I want to do it. It won’t be easy but it will be worth it.
- Get up early
- Work hard
- Get your education
- Find your oil
- Make your mark
- Get prepared to be of service
Get up early – something I’ve wanted to do for a long time now because I know I could get a lot accomplished. With kids though it’s very hard to get out of bed in the morning if I set the alarm because I wake up multiple times at night with them. I have to remind myself that there’s a time and season for all things, and maybe my time isn’t right now to wake up early. Or I just need to work on it a day at a time.
Work hard – definitely need to work on this. I want to rest and relax more than work. Again, with kids they drain me a lot.
Get your education – I am so grateful to be back in school to finish my Bachelor’s degree. After almost 5 years of being gone I am back and more focused and determined than before. I have more dreams and something I want to accomplish.
Find your oil – I’m not sure what it is yet, but I am looking for it. I am keeping my mind open to opportunities and praying for guidance from above.
Make your mark – what will mine be?
Get prepared to be of service – Brent and I have talked about that a lot. We want to be financially at a point in our lives someday where we can wake up each morning and think ‘who can I bless today?’.
Quotes I loved from The Ministry of Business book:
“God will help you as you follow The Formula”. — If he’s helped others, why wouldn’t he help me as well? If I follow The Formula and have faith in Him and trust in Him, I will find success.
“Gethsemane Preceded Calvary” — LOVE this! Suffering comes before greatness.
