At the end of each year, it is wise to set aside time to reflect on the past year and plan for the upcoming year. This will help you have more clarity, focus, and commitment to be more effective in the upcoming year. According to T. Alan Armstrong, “Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months, and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character.”

I love this time of year, don’t you? It’s filled with family, friends and celebration. It’s also a time of reflection and planning so we can step into 2015 refreshed and ready for a miraculous year.

Yesterday evening I received an email from Dr. John Maxwell titled “Your Word Today is ASK” ith a link to a value-packed short video. That title grabbed my attention because I know as a leadership coach the importance of asking good questions. After watching Dr. Maxwell’s short video, I was inspired to order the Kindle version of his latest book “Good Leaders Ask Great Questions.” Before going to bed, I began reading and highlighting the book. That is outstanding. Here are some excerpts that stood out for me:

I want you to stop and think of what you are doing, where you’re going, is it working. What am I doing? What works and what doesn’t? We are living in crazy times today. Uncertainty is the new norm. Things are starting to change and they are starting to change faster than ever before. We thought things were going to slow down. They aren’t slowing down, they are speeding up. What we have to do is learn is to calm down. We have to look at our life and our world a lot more objectively than we have in the past. We have to quit competing with one another and start cooperating with one another.

Yesterday I found a voice message and two encouraging emails from Tom Richter, a connector who I hadn’t spoken to for about a year. It’s interesting that about an hour before seeing Tom’s email, I prayed to God to let me know the title for today’s Sunday Inspiration. When I clicked on one of Tom’s links, the answer became clear.

In early August, Dr. Bruce Cook and I launched the Apostolic Alignment (AA) tribe for Kingdom Leaders. Each of the weekly MMM meetings (webinars) we have had so far has been profound and our tribe members are experiencing extraordinary breakthroughs. On Sept 22, Russel Stauffer wrote “There is such a shift in thought patterns, correction in self talk, revelations of what I am to do, more clarity, smarter decisions… like Wisdom is right beside/in me giving directions; it’s delightfully astounding and I know it is a direct result of the MMM AA and the prayer on Thursday thru Dr. Sharon (Billins), GTG!” During our weekly MMM meeting on Sept 27, Kyle Newton shared his amazing story of a 100-fold return resulting from a shift in his self-talk and thinking. Dr. Cook then asked Kyle to say a prayer and decree over the tribe what he experienced. Kyle’s ICEBREAKER prayer is very powerful.
