The Lord impressed this revelation upon me this morning, when I was preparing my power drink to start the day.  I would venture to say that every one of us has a Dream, and many of us have seen Visions.  Every successful leader says the same thing. “If you want success; you must set goals!” I agree with that wholeheartedly.  Goals are extremely important.  Setting goals help to keep you focused on Your Dream.

Since I was accepted into The Leaders Role, I have been given one challenge after another.  My most  recent challenge seemed like an impossible task for me to accomplish.  I spent two sleepless nights thinking about this assignment.  Those two sleepless nights, and this word of revelation from the Lord, prompted me to share this with you.

When Kris challenged us with these assignments;  he set a DEADLINE for each one.  Yes!  That is ……       The Magic Key that the Lord revealed to me today.   We were always given a time limit, to complete       each assignment. (48 to 72 hours).   Now!  I don’t know about you; I do know this….. For me;  that word DEADLINE propelled me into action.  I was out of my “comfort zone” without even realizing it.  There was no time for thoughts of  ” How am I ever going to do this?”  or ” I can’t do this”   I had only 48 hours to make a choice….. Succeed or Fail.  I chose to succeed!

I’m almost positive that everyone of you has made New Years Resolutions.  I know I have; and most of the time they don’t last.  Let’s discuss a couple of the most common examples.  Getting out of Debt and Exercise / Weight Loss.  We always set goals; but have we ever given ourselves a DEADLINE?
I suggest asking someone close to you to be your partner.  Have them agree to keep you accountable. Keep the time limit short, so that both of you stay focused on the DEADLINE.

That is my Magic Key for today.

Thank you for giving me this time!

    Where is Linda M Davis lady and WHO are you! (smile) The Linda M Davis I met 2 months ago would have never written blog posts such as these. Each one gets better and better. They overflow with confidence, focus and clarity. The Linda M Davis I knew 2 months ago, although a wonderful person, did not exhibit these qualities…Could it be that the Linda Davis I’ve known is now being transformed? You are definitely a “Diamond In The Rough”…Shine Girl, Shine and never allow anyone put a lampshade over your light!
