Sheila’s Shofar – Today’s Call to Action – Tip of the Day

 Kudu or antelope or trumpet horn as often referred to in the Bible which Sheila sounds as an ancient Call-to-Action on the show.

Here is my call to action for today – Declare the positive condition your life’s current journey and speak positive affirmations into the lives of others.

Declaration and Afirmations must be –

  1. Positive vs a curse
  2. First Person, Present Tense – I am You are
  3. Specific
  • Confirm the obvious,
  • Reveals Positive Blind Spots,
  • Could have elements of the prophetic – Ask God to help reveal this do you
  • Review on a regular basis

Amazing Snippets of Wisdom from Jeff:

Meditate on these Guest Quotes to see the useful wisdom that might come from God’s voice and resonate with your heart and be implemented today on your journey.

  1. So I began to try to figure out how I can get the Godly principles in helping people, in growing people so when they retire in 25 or 30 years they have a sense of purpose and fulfillment of accomplishment of a great mission versus just having a pension to rely on.
  2. Most people don’t surround themselves with good teaching and that’s what I’m trying to do – get them exposed to that and get them talking about it and let them have a voice around the table.
  3. My job is to grow great people who grow great plants.
