Note 005: The Life-Sucking Cost of Shame!

SHAME IS THE FIRST COUSIN OF FEAR…

Shame will keep you from showing up – showing up in your life, showing up in your business - and it will keep you from being who God intended you to be.  Shame immobilizes us...

“Guilt is feeling like you’ve done something bad; fear is feeling like something bad is going to happen; but, shame is feeling like you ARE bad.” 

Note 004: Why Do We Have Gifts?

The simple answer is: to build community

That’s right, God gives us each different gifts so that we have to come together and rely upon each other in communities and marketplaces.  Each of us is created to meet a particular need that exists around us.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.  (1 Peter 4:10)

Note 003: Implement!

 I regularly have a chance to observe winners, finishers, and prolific writers.  The common thread I observe between them is that they implement! 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO IMPLEMENT? 

Implementation is taking in information or processing new ideas and then acting on them.    Dictionary.com defines the verb to implement as “to put (a decision, plan, agreement, etc.) into effect.”  It also gives as synonyms, the words execute, apply, perform, and enact.

Note 001: Hello & Welcome!

HELLO FRIENDS,

My name is Cori and I am an entrepreneur, advocate, and speaker.  God and my life’s work are my two great loves - in that order.  My God-given gifts have conspired to land me here, with you.  I help entrepreneurs and soon-to-be entrepreneurs discover their unique and God-given gifts, build their best lives and businesses around those gifts, and align all of that with God’s word.

Note 000: Introducing NOTES FROM CORI

I'm calling this tab NOTES FROM CORI, where I’ll periodically post my thoughts and ideas. I don’t call this section a blog because I don’t think of myself as a blogger, nor will I post as often or regularly as a blogger. But, I do write notes to my current and former clients from time to time, if I think they could benefit from something I'm thinking. I’m going to share some of those (edited or annotated) notes here. I hope you enjoy them. Hopefully, you’ll find them both motivational and educational. Here’s what you can expect.
