Foundations are essential to any great building project. If you’re going to build anything substantial to stand the test of time, it must be built on a properly engineered foundation. As we transition from one level to the next, I want to help you lay a solid foundation on which to build your preferred future (the future God has already determined is yours for the taking).

Foundations are essential to any great building project. If you’re going to build anything substantial to stand the test of time, it must be built on a properly engineered foundation. As we transition from one level to the next, I want to help you lay a solid foundation on which to build your preferred future (the future God has already determined is yours for the taking).

Eliminate excuses. 

This is the first step in laying a solid foundation.“Woulda, coulda, shoulda” never got anyone anywhere. Your excuses and rationalizations you’ve allowed yourself to formulate to keep you comfortable need to be eliminated. Level the playing field. Erase and stop giving breath to all that junk.

The choices you make are the world you live in. The results you’ve generated previously were the direct results of the choices you made previously. What creates consequences or results are always the choices we make.

Take ownership. Eliminate excuses.

Posture yourself for your next level.

Posture is both an inside and an outside attitude, having to do with your mindset or belief systems. You have to posture yourself on the inside by realigning or reconstituting ideals. Eliminate limiting beliefs and replace them with godly, truthful beliefs about what you can accomplish and are capable of.

Posturing yourself for your next level involves dealing with yourself on the inside then dealing with some things on the outside, such as relationships. You cannot be what everyone needs you to be and simultaneously be true to the person God has called you to be. You cannot meet everyone’s expectations or remain in the state someone else needs you to stay in and at also expect you’re going to take your life, ministry, leadership, role, finances to the next level.

There are some people who love you and like being around you, but don’t necessarily understand the assignment, vision, or destiny of your life. Therefore, as you make adjustments in your thinking and the way you conduct your life, not everybody will accept your change. They’re not as interested in you becoming the person God has called you to be, as they’re interested in who they want you to be for them. Some of this posturing will involve you redefining relationships.

Sometimes you have to posture yourself by repositioning yourself environmentally. You have to leave a particular setting. Maybe it’s a job, a town, a church – evalute your environments and posture yourself accordingly.

Imagine the possibilities and see yourself succeeding in them.

So many times we put a governor on our imagination. By governor, I’m referring to a mini bike or a motorcycle or even an automobile switch. In the old school days, there was a switch that governed the capacity of the engine and its performance. It was a switch that capped potential.

Sometimes we put a governor on our imagination. We don’t allow ourselves to imagine outside the boundaries of what we’ve seen, accomplished, or dreamt possible. Because of this, we settle for less than what is available to us. Imagine the possibilities. If you don’t open your mind and heart to possibilities, you’re going to be stuck right where you are for the next many years. Let your mind and your heart go free. Let your imagination run wild.

Ask God to give you eyes to see and ears to hear available possibilities. Expand the boundaries of your possibility perspective. Give yourself permission to dream big and pursue unlimited potential residing within you.

Visualize yourself holding that book that you’ve written and published. See yourself standing on stage singing, speaking, delivering a message of hope or healing or instruction or coaching. See yourself opening the doors or doing a ribbon cutting on that business you dreamed of opening.

Confidently commit to the process of progress.

Confidence is essential to succeeding in life. You can’t lack confidence and expect to win. The absence of confidence is timidity or fear, both of which paralyze us from taking necessary actions to create opportunity, forward movement, or progress.

The absence of confidence is the primary reason people fail when committing to something new. Commitment is a pre-determined decision you’ve made on the front end of something. It involves a predetermined action plan for times when resistance, difficulty, or challenges show up on your door. Commitment is a heart issue, but it’s also a planning issue.

Difficulty will come. Challenges will come knocking on the door. You’re going to face opposition and obstacles. One of our greatest enemies is resistance. Commitment is a quality that provides the strength and will to keep us moving forward when we’re faced with challenges.

Dream big and set big goals, then commit to those. However, you must understand what we’re after is progress. Commit to progress, which is steady movement in the right direction. Confidently commit to the process of progress.


If you will ponder and consider this, as you now begin to lay the groundwork for where it is you want to go in 2017, these steps, will lay a solid, powerful, unmoving, unwavering foundation for you to take life, leadership, business, marriage, or money to a different level in a new year.

Also, did you catch the acronym?

E: Eliminate excuses.
P: Posture yourself for your next level.
I: Imagine the possibilities and see yourself succeeding in them.
C: Confidently commit to the process of progress.

This is how you and I lay a beautiful, powerful, appropriate foundation for an EPIC new season in life.

Stop The Excuses, Start Your Success https://brianholmes.com/stop-excuses-start-success/ https://brianholmes.com/stop-excuses-start-success/#respond Wed, 12 Jul 2017 10:01:11 +0000 Val Kleppen https://brianholmes.com/?p=10044

Whether you’re a small business owner, an entrepreneur, a director of a non-profit, pastor, community leader, or a stay-at-home mom, you are in business and you are created and called by God to make a difference.

Let’s establish you are in business. Whatever you’re endeavoring to build, grow, lead, influence, that makes it your business. Jesus gives us an awesome example from His young life where He said, “I have to get busy doing my Father’s business." Whatever the business is, it’s time for you to engage the business you were sent here to do.

Whether you’re a small business owner, an entrepreneur, a director of a non-profit, pastor, community leader, or a stay-at-home mom, you are in business and you are created and called by God to make a difference.

Let’s establish you are in business. Whatever you’re endeavoring to build, grow, lead, influence, that makes it your business. Jesus gives us an awesome example from His young life where He said, “I have to get busy doing my Father’s business.” Whatever the business is, it’s time for you to engage the business you were sent here to do.

A business is not a business unless it’s profitable. Yes, even if you are a non-profit business, there is still the need to generate revenue. A business not making a profit is at best a charity or probably only a hobby.

In the parable of the talents, the rich business owner gave opportunity and responsibility to five different fellows. To one, he gave ten talents, to another he gave five, etc. He wanted each man to take a portion of his business, steward and grow it and treat it as if it was their own, while he went away.

The business owner came back, checked in with these stewards, and found a couple of them had multiplied what they’d been given. They had invested it and grown the enterprise.

The last fellow admitted to being scared. He thought the best thing to do was bury the talent for safe keeping. He didn’t want to risk anything for fear of losing what little he had to work with.”

In the story, the business owner reprimanded him saying, “You wicked servant.” In today’s terms, “You’re irresponsible. You have no idea how to manage or lead. You took what I gave you to work with and squandered it because of your insecurities and fears. Therefore, I can’t increase you. I can’t give you more to work with. I can’t multiply the work of your hands because I can’t trust you to do with my stuff what needs to be done.” To the other fellows who did well with the business, he gave them more to work with. He realized they could be trusted with the resources given them.

Ladies and gentlemen, you are in business. If you are not growing, multiplying, and generating a profit, you will not have the resources needed to accomplish the mission God wants you to steward.

Businesses fail for one reason: because they’re not making money. A business is not a business unless it is profitable. Whoever you are, whatever your idea or dream, you must adopt this understanding and attitude of being in business.

The people you and I are called to serve are depending on us to figure it out, to go make it work, to make money, to build the thing, to do what it is God has put in our heart. They’re depending on you to show up.

The time to show up is now. It’s go time. No more excuses. No more rationalizations. No more messing around. No more putting it off until later. Treat this like your life and someone else’s life depends on it.

If you and I say yes and fully engage the possibilities before us, we’re going to see incredible results. If God has put an idea on your heart, your responsibility is to not only think about and pray about it, but to steward it, plan it, nurture it, grow it, multiply it, and produce results from it.

We cannot afford to tinker around anymore. Our life’s work is before us, and God has prepared the way.

What are you tethered to that may not be a part of the matrix or the plan for your life in the new season? What relationships? What jobs? What contracts? What ideologies or beliefs?

Wherever you are right now, your next step cannot and should not be a repeat of your previous moves. You don’t need a do-over. You have been given access to and granted permission for a new beginning. God most definitely has a beautiful plan for your new season. Your best days, your best years, your best productivity, your prosperity, the blessing you have been longing for, is ahead of you.

Jesus said, “I must be about my Father’s business.” What He was saying was, “I was sent here to make a contribution, to make a difference.” I’m going to ask you this: What is your business? What have you been called to do? What have you been created and designed to accomplish, build and contribute?

Are you teachable? Are you willing to engage fully? Are you willing to let the past be the past and leave it so you can absolutely, positively administer incredible, over-the-top, life-altering influence to the lives and people groups you have been called to serve?

No more excuses. No more rationalizations. It’s go time.

With yesterday being the birthday of our great country, it brought to mind the freedoms we have the privilege of pursuing in our day to day lives. The pursuit, however, will only stay as such if we don't exercise a crucial element of action: personal deployment.

I’m so proud to meet folks who serve in the military. Since I travel so frequently, I meander through many airports, and nearly every time I’m at the airport I see our servicemen and women boarding airplanes, flying somewhere, going off to do what it is they do. It really does make me proud of our country. It especially makes me proud of those young men and young women.

Taking Action: Personal Deployment

deploy deployment

With yesterday being the birthday of our great country, it brought to mind the freedoms we have the privilege of pursuing in our day to day lives. The pursuit, however, will only stay as such if we don’t exercise a crucial element of action: personal deployment.

I’m so proud to meet folks who serve in the military. Since I travel so frequently, I meander through many airports, and nearly every time I’m at the airport I see our servicemen and women boarding airplanes, flying somewhere, going off to do what it is they do. It really does make me proud of our country. It especially makes me proud of those young men and young women.

Not more than a year ago, my wife and I were in an airport and we saw a small crowd of recently graduated high school students who had all enrolled in the military, and they were with their commanding officer at the airport about to fly off to their first boot camp. My wife and I both got teary-eyed because my daughter had just graduated and I thought she could have very well been one of them.

When you talk about personal deployment, the term naturally leads people, me included, to think of the military because these folks enlist to serve and their first assignment is boot camp. They are broken many times. They’re physically challenged. They are mentally challenged. Then they begin to hone in on various skill sets they’ll need to perform their duties in the military. This goes on for months, sometimes even years, depending on the specialty and their commitment.

Then comes the waiting period. They’re trained. They’re developed. They’re prepared. But they’re waiting. What are they waiting for? They’re waiting to be deployed because, quite frankly, until they’re deployed, until they’re in the place where their skills, talents, abilities, passions, and their preparation can be applied, they’re just very well-prepared people waiting to be called to duty.

For you, as you go through personal healing, discovery, and development, at some point you have to get in the game. At some point you have to deploy. You have to take on the responsibility of the assignment God has given you. At some point, you’ve got to go to the front line. You’ve got to get in the fray. You’ve got to get in the mix and do the deal for which you were created.

Another powerful metaphor or analogy here is from sports. Imagine the kids who work out at 6 a.m. every morning preparing for football season. They’re doing pushups, sit-ups, sprints, crunches. They’re running drills. They’re practicing plays. They’re watching film. They do all this stuff for hours on end, days and days and days and days, weeks and weeks. At some point, it’s game time and they suit up. They put on their pads. They put on their jersey. They put on their helmet, their shoes, their cleats. Then the coach calls their number. “Number 42, get in the game!” Now you’ve got to be willing to get out there and get smacked by some defensive end. You’ve got to be willing to take a hit. You’ve got to be willing to execute the skill you were trained to do.

And so it is with each of us. Deployment is where the money is. Deployment is where the satisfaction is. Deployment is where the fulfillment is. It’s when you get in the game. It’s when you finish that task. It’s when you launch that business, that ministry, that idea, write that book, do that deal. It’s when you do so you can be and are fulfilled. You’ve accomplished what you set out to do in the very beginning. All the goals, all the dreams, all the passions, all the desires, they come to fulfillment because why? You decided to get off the sideline and get in the game.

That’s what deployment is about. I propose a challenge to you. Maybe you’re well prepared. Maybe you’ve been going through this process yourself and you aren’t sure which step to take next, or if you should take a next step at all. Don’t hesitate. Get in the game. Start that business. Engage the destiny that is on your life. Deploy, and take action.

Welcome to another exciting episode, where we are going to the next level, and beyond!

In this special edition episode, I have a few big announcements about the podcast and I’ll be giving you a preview of some of the major changes coming to BrianHolmes.com and Strategic Influencers LLC.

As always, I’m honored you’re here and super excited you have made the decision to take it ALL to the next level, and beyond!

Where We’ve Been: 

  • Strategic Influencers, LLC
  • Blog & Podcast began in 2013
  • Monday Mastery video series
  • Coaching & speaking
  • Strategic Influencers Mastermind (2016)

Vision for 2017/18 & Beyond: 

  • Training & development company
  • Focused on personal and leadership development
  • Empower individuals to administer high levels of influence and principle-centered leadership in every area of culture
  • Strategic Influencers International Network
  • Youth mentoring programs

Big Dreams, Narrowed Focus: 

  • There are so many people out there who want to succeed, increase their leadership capacity, make a difference in others’ lives, BUT they are not receiving the coaching, training, mentoring, or development they need to be activated and effective in their place of influence. I want to change that!

What Does This Mean for BrianHolmes.com, Monday Mastery, and the weekly podcast?

  • They are not going anywhere, at least not for long.
  • The website is getting a makeover and update.
  • The podcast will also undergo a makeover and update.
    • This includes shifting the name of the podcast back to the original name … The Strategic Living Podcast, a name that more broadly aligns with the training and content our listeners want.

To help us prepare for these major changes and update, we will be putting the Thursday podcast on hiatus for the months July and August 2017. During this time, we will continue to release ONE episode each week on Monday mornings. This will be our Monday Mastery series, which is our compact, high value, and always-impactful series on taking your life and leadership to the next level. 

Our Thursday podcast (the all new, full length version Strategic Living Podcast) will re-launch on September 7th.

Closing Thoughts:

We are working hard to bring you the very best personal and leadership development content available!

Next Steps:

1. Subscribe to our weekly email update on brianholmes.com
2. 
Continue this conversation on Facebook! Are you ready for what’s next?


Announcements:

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We have recently expanded for a few openings in our next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …

BrianHolmes.com/mastermind

To apply for membership with the Strategic Influencers Mastermind Group, please click the link below, and you will be directed to an online application. Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
