When my Web Master called and said he would no longer be able to keep me as a client I knew
something had to change. I knew the change needed went beyond finding a new Web Masters. What really needed to change was the lack of control I had over my website. The problem was, I did not know where or how to begin. So I did what any reasonable writer would do… I kept meeting deadlines and let the technical side of things slide while offering up heartfelt prayers that went like this: Help!
Yes, God cares about His children’s websites and at just the right time, in just the
right way, my plea for wisdom and direction was answered. I was attending a National Speakers
Association meeting where Marty Dickinson, the owner of Here Next Year website
marketing, was the keynote speaker. Marty, and his trusty assistant Amber Ludwig were ready, willing and able
to help me with all my website woes and I have been nothing but pleased since I began working with them.
Six months later, Marty, true to his word, is still there but Amber has, as Marty puts it, “become a star” with her own
company, NGNG Enterprises (No Guts No Glory!). I have been in contact with Amber
who, as I type, is branding my new Facebook Fan page. Stand by for the grand opening!!
In addition to the wonderful work Marty and Amber have done changing my website from a
menacing monster to a manageable means of communication, Amber has gone on to introduce me to #1 New York Times bestselling author, Brendon Burchard, who just sent me a copy of his book, The Charge – Activating the 10 Human Drives That Make You Feel Alive! It is a real must read. Brandon also heads High Performance Academy and has a fabulous, free, on-line video available for public viewing. The link is below. Here is an overview of the six questions Brandon addresses in the video:
- #1 will be revealed last… (no peeking!)
- When I am with others am I fully engaged emotionally and physically?
- What 3 words define who I am?
- Am I rested and fully hydrated?
- Am I accomplishing what needs to be accomplished today to move my life forward at the most advanced pace possible?
- Am I demonstrating bold enthusiasm?
#1. Am I living a purpose driven life?
Will I live fully, love openly and make a difference today?
As you think about these six questions think about this too: Even before you were born God had you in mind. He made you on purpose for a purpose and longs for you to discover the life He created for you to live.
“It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for: Long before we first heard of Christ… He had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone.”
Ephesians 1:11 The Message
