If you want to be successful, you have to understand one thing about wanting to become successful.
In 1991 I was sleeping in my car, I had $35 to my name, everything I had could fit into two bags. I started talking to God about my dreams… Fast forward, out of nowhere I get a call from The Apollo asking me to come on the show. That same night I met D.L. Hughley, and Jamie Foxx for the first time. We were all comedians that went on that night. This is my Apollo story and how I became the host. This was my turnback moment.
Everybody has a turn back moment, it’s the moment you can either go forward or give everything up. There’s one guarantee if you give up it will never happen. Faith is everything, God is always on time, he’s never too late.
God is my anchor. I just got to stay connected to Him. I have to make sure that I’m always attached. The older you get, the more challenging life becomes, the deeper the water you find yourself in. Make sure you’re anchored in faith.
God does the impossible! Quit TRIPPIN! Everything you’re going through is preparing you for what you asked God for. “To whom much is given, much is required.” But when you ain’t got nothing… that verse hits different. You have to live your life with expectations no matter what.
Everybody wants two things out of life… success and happiness. Both are available to anyone who wants it. You have to change your MINDSET. Want to know the difference between successful people and non-successful people? YOUR MINDSET! God gave y’all the same thing he gave me.
What you put out is what you get back… If you wake up every day and say “Thank you. I sure appreciate you, Lord. Thank you for waking me up. Today, I expect to have another great day.”
That’s one step towards the next level! There are two sides, you choose: positive or negative.
There are two scriptures that changed my entire life. If you do these two things, it will change your life. If you apply it right now, it can change your existence.
The scripture says “you have not, because you ask not.” Do you have any idea how major those words are for you? Most people don’t have the life of your dreams because you haven’t asked God for it. You’ve been trying to figure life out and handle it yourself. Well, how is that working out for you?
You have to have a vision board! I don’t know nobody wealthy, who don’t have a vision board. Scripture says “write the vision and make it plain. So he who reads it will run to it, and even though it will tarry, wait for it. For surely it will come at an appointed time.”
When you imagine things, it’s actually God showing you a preview of a coming attraction he has for you. The biggest dream killer is telling small minded people what’s in your imagination. Wondering why your friends or family shot down one of your best ideas? Because God gave it to you and not them.
The things that have been in your imagination… you have to start working on them. These are the gifts that God has for you.
Practically everything we use or purchase started out as an idea in someone’s imagination. Your cell phone, your car, etc. The things in your imagination aren’t there by chance. You have to act on them now.
I hope that you enjoy my new “Motivated +” series, I wanted to give you a little more than my regular #Motivated series. Leave me a comment and let me know how you are going to move on the gifts in your imagination.
