    Have you ever felt like your current career isn't a good fit for you, your family, or your long-term goals?

Hands up if you've ever thought about starting your own business (or if you already have).⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In this conversation, I chat with my friend and fellow entrepreneur Esther Inman (@esther_inman). She shares her story of how it became clear to her it was time to pivot her career and start her own business.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
She also opens up about unexpected suffering and how she was able to keep moving forward despite the pain.⁠⠀

    I WILL MAKE A PROMISE TO YOU!

I will promise that when you finish watching this video, you will feel the conviction to show up in your relationships more powerfully. To be more present in the relationship. To help your wife or children feel more received and loved. To be the leader that your family most desires. And to be the man God is calling to be.

If you're not married, it's okay! How you manage to show up in your relationships with friends and family will dictate and prep you for when you have a spouse. 
Men, this is what the world needs — men who show up in their marriages with the agenda to serve, honor, and love their wives.

If you follow this advice, I promise you and those around you will flourish. I promise your wife will feel more desired and you will be most fulfilled.

    🌎 I was starting quarterback in high school until our running back didn’t make grades. .
.
⚡️I had some decent wheels and we had a good backup quarterback so coach asked if I could give it a shot for a game or two. I did. .
.
⭐️ My first game or two I did ok, but my coach saw a flaw. I was running to AVOID opponents instead of running to ATTACK the holes left open by opponents. BAM! Soon after that, I had one game where I rushed for over 200 yards and 4 touchdowns. .
.
🌎 So many people are running to AVOID their fears and failures when we are called to run in ATTACK mode! We’re called to take territory and blast through enemy lines. It’s time to stop avoiding and start attacking. Let’s go on the offensive! What’s holding you back? .

    Discouragement leads to doubt. How do you defeat doubt? You remember three things:

1. I remind myself of God’s goodness yesterday. I make a list of all the things he’s done in my life, and I just start being thankful. The attitude of gratitude is the healthiest emotion that you can have.

2. I remember God’s presence today. I remind myself that he’s with me right now. I’m not alone. Even when I feel like I’m completely alone, I’m not. I’ve just forgotten that he’s there with me.

3. I remind myself of God’s promises for tomorrow. There are thousands of promises for us in the Bible. Each one is something I can claim in faith.

    Brigid and Maggie served with Entrust’s STEP internship initiative for a year in the Middle East. Their insights upon returning home shed some light on how ministries can best attract millennials and then, best utilize what millennials have to offer to Great Commission work. Visit our blog, “Equipping Christian Leaders,” to learn from these young women and further your thoughts about millennials in ministry.

    As a parent, I can guide my children in the way that they should go .I can help them to discover their passions, their strengths, their weaknesses. But who they are comes from their heavenly Father. I know that when they draw close to Him then He will ignite their hearts in unexpected ways. In HIM- they will find their strength. In HIM, they will find their purpose.

    Millennials are fanatically loyal to the brands they like. Millennials are famously disloyal to brands, changing their opinions with seeming ease. Research shows both statements are true. What does this mean for people in ministry?

    Grace: unearned, undeserved favor.
.
.
It’s so easy to look at someone and their situation and immediately criticize and make harsh assumptions. I wonder what would happen if we extended the same grace to others as we have extended to us from the Father? Gosh, if we’d just walk in humility and let it go when were offended, hurt, or tempted to pass a judgement in the moment. The Word says: “But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
.
.
I can’t tell you how much my life has changed when I started to shift my mindset to having a spirit of grace concerning people. I went from bitter, resentful and unforgiving to literally floating in peace even when I’d been badly hurt by someone.
.
Have boundaries - yes. Continue to be used, abused, hurt, or sit in the company of fools? NO. But don’t forget to extend that grace. Jesus died for them, too. And He loves them just as much as you.

    As a leader, it can be easy to be focused on the results, on the numbers, on the end goal.⁠
⁠⠀
But one of the many lessons we've learned in our first year of the podcast is to let God take care of the outcome.⁠
⁠⠀
Listen to the rest of our conversation sharing the 12 lessons we learned on your favorite podcast app or at estherlittlefield.com/episode55⁠

How about you... do you find it hard to let go of the results?⁠

    Have you ever eaten a piece of cake that was made without eggs? In my opinion it tastes like it's missing something. Well not having peace in your life is very similar. Sure it can be done and you can live a happy life. But if it's missing a key ingredient it will never be as good as it could be. Peace begins within so if you change your focus, circumstances, or attitude you can change your life. Peace is power!!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification. Romans 14V19

    What do you do with all your time?
Whether you’re busy or free, your time on earth is limited. What do you do with it? Does what you do with it help you get where you need to or be what you’re called to? 
How will you spend this week? 
Your life, our lives, are composed of time, so how we spend our time, is how we spend our lives. 
What question do you need to ask yourself about what you do with all your time? 
I’m here to listen and to ask you the other hard, but good questions!

    Capture your thoughts.  What is the first thought that came to mind when you read the caption—— “Change your thought life and you will change your life”. Sit with your response to the idea.  Reflect a moment on whether it was positive or negative.  Possibly it even was a glimpse of the change you desire. 
Most of the time the first step in change is our mindset which is directly linked to our thought life. 
Personally I know I have to pin point the frowny thoughts before I can replace them with the true smiley thoughts.  In my relationships it means I have to choose to think the best about people so I can love them for Christ.  It’s kind of like if someone says to you “wow, did you see all the red cars on the road today?” and then you start noticing more red cars.  Your mind will find and notice what it is looking for. 
In the same respect we can give our mind the task of noticing what we are thinking about.  Do you see how this can change our lives?  Our thoughts lead us daily.  Where are your thoughts taking you?

Change can look messy.  The picture is from some change that is happening at Central Michigan University.  They are renovating student housing so that means the old has to be destroyed to make room for the upgrade.  It’s a messy process but the outcome is going to be worth it!
Upgrading our thought life is messy too and sometimes painful but the new improved life we will gain is worth it. 
What thoughts are you changing today?  Start by taking them captive and making the obedient to the truth of Christ. (2Corinthians 10:5)

Keep your momentum going it’s Monday!

Stay strong!

    "If you can do it, that's good.  But if YOU can't do it, that's God."
.
This morning's sermon was about going ALL IN even when you don't feel capable, qualified, or brave enough to leave your comfort zone.  Because even though YOU can't, HE can.
.
And it brought me back to the moment I said Yes as a coach.  I was doubtful & scared, but also drawn and confirmed through several situations and I knew it had to be all or nothing. In fact, I told my mentor that I wanted to pray about it first because if I was going to do it, I was going to go ALL IN.
.
Ironic that those are the same words I heard this morning, right?! ✨
.
In 3 days I FINALLY get to join together with ALL the other amazing coaches in this business as I continue to step out of comfort and into a newfound confidence.
.
So, what are the ALL IN things I must see when in Indy?!

    Why do I share my thoughts with you and record the fearless Friday videos?

I share because I believe life is better together.  We all have our struggles and my hope is by me sharing with you my Royal Reflections they will inspire you to keep moving forward  like they do me.  These are reflections that boost my relationship with the Lord and I pray they will do the same for you.  If they do just leave me a little ❤️ to encourage me too. 
Here is a follow on reflection from my last video:  Fearless freedom moves me into living in the power of Christ.  Often I struggle to keep my perspective of the truth of who I am in Christ at the center of my thought life.  Especially with relationships.  Knowing who I am in Christ powers me to choose fearless freedom in my response to unkind words selflessly rather than selfishly.  I don’t get it right every time.  That is why I share these encouragements to keep myself moving forward and hopefully to encourage others to do the same.  Does it help?  Your comments and ❤️ help me know it does.

    Someone called me Deac today 😅 “To accept the levitical call is the highest honor in the world. Every time He moves me forward, I have to ask myself “what is there to go back to?”” - @gabrielallenpowell 
Nothing. I was SAVED to SERVE His Kingdom and His people. I get to... I choose to... I said “yes” to serving as a Deacon at @therchurch.

    For a long time, I've been a proponent of having the hard conversations. I firmly believe that it's only through the difficult, uncomfortable conversations that we can actually grow and develop in our relationships, teams, and organizations.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
But having these tough conversations is not fun... it's not easy... and it's often awkward, especially at first.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Within the Confident Leader Club, we just finished reading "Dare to Lead" by @brenebrown . In it, she says this:⁣⠀
⁣⠀
“Courage is contagious. To scale daring leadership and build courage in teams and organizations, we have to cultivate a culture in which brave work, tough conversations, and whole hearts are the expectation, and armor is not necessary or rewarded.”⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Even outside of teams or organizations, it can be tough to be vulnerable and honest. I can think of times that I've needed to have a tough conversation with my husband or a close friend... I can still remember the knots in my stomach before speaking the first word.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
But then, it gets easier. I don't die. And the other person doesn't die. Sure, there may be tears, and there may be discomfort. But that's how we grow.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Are you avoiding having a difficult conversation? Are you hiding from someone you don't want to be honest with? What if you asked God to help you tackle that tough conversation. I promise it will be worth it.⁣ Tell me in the comments: when was the last time you had a tough conversation?
