The following 10 questions were derived from my pastor; Dr. Creflo Dollar’s October 23rd, 2005 7:30 AM WCCI sermon entitled “Ten Questions to Uncover Your Destiny.”
Ever since I first heard it ministered; I have gone back every six months to review the study notes that accompanied the sermon and ask the following questions of myself. It has always been a good exercise for me.
What is your heart’s deepest desire?
I believe my heart’s deepest desire is to use all the skills and talents I have been graced with to make the world a better place. I know that may sound a bit cheesy, but it’s the truth. I believe every one of us has the ability to make a difference in our immediate world and when we do it causes a ripple effect. I have called it showing love forward or #LOVEFORWARD. One thing I learned when I was very young is… If you learn how to (express) love, others will find it hard not to love you.
What ignites your passion?
I love good dialogue. I enjoy having intelligent thought provoking conversations with others.
I am also passionate about helping others to improve how they do things organizationally.
What naturally flows out of you?
What naturally flows out of me is information. I read for enjoyment. I can spend hours on the web just doing research on new technology or marketing techniques. I have a natural ability to come up with creative concepts that show people how they can use what they may already have in their arsenals to better market themselves and their products/services. I was taught early on to always look for the best in others. My mother was one of my greatest cheerleaders. And she taught me the power of inspiring/encouraging others to go beyond their potential.
Where do you produce good results?
I believe I produce good results in the people I have been given charge over to mentor, encourage and coach. I am also an exceptional project manager and administrator.
What is the witness of the Holy Spirit in your spirit?
The witness of the Holy Spirit in my spirit is when I am working on a project, or when someone asks me a question pertaining to something I have either worked on or have knowledge of. I can actually feel the wheels of my brain begin to turn before almost effortlessly answering their inquiry. I feel a sense of peace and confidence.
What do mature Christians see in you?
I think a common thing I have been told by the mature Christians in my life is that they see the genuineness in me. I don’t hold any punches. I have a pure heart to serve without hidden motives or agendas. I always make an effort to be helpful and speak in love. I am a stickler for things being done in decency and order. I have the tendency (if left unchecked) to have what may be considered an aggressively passionate spirit and in the past I had to work on staying in my lane, when assisting. At times, I can take myself too seriously and things too much to heart. On a more positive note, I have been told that I am loyal, loving and faithful and that I am very efficient when put to task. I have also been told that my moods are intense and that the sweetness of my spirit is a good balance.
What career/ministry do you feel the peace of God about pursuing?
Project management in the public relations and marketing industries specifically online is career/ministry I feel the peace of God about pursuing.
What ideas, visions or dreams are impossible to get out of your mind?
The vision or dream I seem to not be able to get out of my mind is establishing a company to help others share their own passions. I also enjoy writing, teaching and coaching. I have always been very expressive in my speech. Writing is a form therapy for me and imparting into others comes naturally.
To what can you give 100% of your life?
What I can give 100% of my life to is helping others to pursue their passions and/or discover them.
What is it that you do so well that people are drawn to support your efforts?
What I do well that people seem to be drawn to support my efforts in is project management and team creation and leading.
