7 Must Read Talking Points For Your Success

Written by Harold Herring.

Ecclesiastes 3:22 in the Contemporary English Version says:

We were meant to enjoy our work, and that's the best thing we can do. We can never know the future.”

According to a recent Gallup workplace study over 70% of American employees DO NOT like their jobs.  That’s not good or for that matter…scriptural.

If we settle for a job just to earn a paycheck. . .with the attitude of doing just enough to get by. . .we’ll never be happy in the job.

To me, it’s real simple. . .if you don’t like what you’re doing or where you’re working. . .stop complaining and do something about it.

Here are seven must read talking points for your success in the workplace or marketplace.

First, stop talking negatively about your supervisor or your job.

Let me ask you a question. . .now be honest. . .have you ever complained about a job, your supervisor or the management of the company?   If so, STOP IT NOW.

When you speak negatively about someone or something. . .you are empowering the enemy to further torment you.

31 Day Scriptural Guide To Becoming Debt Free

Written by Harold Herring.

I read years ago that what you focus on ... expands in your life.  If you want to be debt free ... then you need to focus your mind and mouth on things that will enable and empower your journey to financial success.

To assist you in your financial freedom journey I've put together 31 powerful scriptures to enrich and engraft within you God's desire for you to be debt free.

I encourage you to memorize one scripture every day.  For instance, on Day 1 memorize the Day 1 scripture and confess it throughout the day.  On Day 2, continue confessing the scripture from Day 1 as you commit the scripture for Day 2 to your memory.  Meditate on these scriptures and ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten your spirit with each word. 

This exercise is important...it's not enough to just read the Word...you must memorize it and confess the scriptures on a daily basis.  Remember out of the abundance of the heart...the mouth speaks.

Every day you need to be thinking and speaking about being debt free.

7 Ways To Rise Above Your Circumstances

Written by Harold Herring.

If I had a penny for every time someone said to me: “You don’t know my circumstances,” I would be able to pay for my dream trip to Bora Bora.

When people say that to me my usual response is: “You know. . .you’re right. . and I don’t want to know your circumstances.

Dictionary.com defines circumstances as:

“a condition, detail, part, or attribute, with respect to time, place, manner, agent, etc., that accompanies, determines, or modifies a fact or event; a modifying or influencing factor”

Spiritually speaking. . .I define circumstance as the circle you’re standing in.

We shouldn’t be standing still. . .we should be moving from glory unto glory (2 Corinthians 3:18).

In which case, we would be leaving our circumstances behind.

So for me. . .the question is why do I want to hear about what this person ought to be leaving behind.

2016: Year Of The Miraculous Turn Around

Written by Harold Herring.

Are you breathing a sigh of relief that 2015 is almost in the record books?

Has it been just an okay year. . .and you’re so ready for something new?

Are you ready to leave the pains and hurts of 2015 in the rear view mirror?

Are you ready to move to a spiritual place you’ve never been before?

Do you remember ever driving to a place you’ve never been before . . .found yourself not knowing if you were heading in the right direction but you still continued on?

I think this is particularly true. . .of most men. . .there is a hesitancy to stop and ask for directions. . .until it’s clearly obvious that you’re headed in the wrong direction.

There is an amazing parallel in life where some people know they’re headed in the wrong direction but they keep hesitating to make the decision to turn things around.

What To Do When Your Star Leads To A Stable

Written by Harold Herring.

I remember years ago, traveling to the mountains of North Carolina with my fine wife Bev and my parents for a long weekend get-away.

We started looking for a hotel room and were unable to fine one for over 60 miles along Interstate 40. 

The clerk at the first hotel we stopped at told us that we would have a problem finding accommodations.  He informed us that the annual Furniture Market was taking place in High Point, North Carolina and there wasn’t a sleeping room to be found within 60 miles in any direction of that huge event.  We found out he was right.

This particular journey was before the days of cell phones and computers.  If you wanted to call ahead you used a pay phone.  We stopped at exit after exit only to hear the same message. . .there was no room in the inn  . . . Holiday or otherwise.

We had the money but there was no room to be found.  At least, my fine wife Bev wasn’t about to give birth.
