Thank you for being a supporter of abmbworkouts.com. Live your dream, bless the people and get this bag! Image used for this weeks verse is a Bill Gates throwback (you can probably put 2 and 2 together on why I decided to use his picture when it came to the subject of money lol)
The Weekly Word includes 3 elements.
1. My ‘Why’ behind the Verse chosen
2. How it relates to me personally throughout life in general and an exercising stand point.
3. An option for YOU to reflect in the same way I do whether you want to speak on both life and exercise or life by itself. The choice is always yours!
The ‘Why’ behind this weeks Verse:
I felt like this weeks verse was important for clarity after hearing people stigmatize the Bible’s view on money and success when they often misquote 1 Timothy 6:10 and say “money is the root of all evil” when 1 Timothy 6:10 actually states “For the love of money is the root of all evil” key word “love”. Then it follows up to say “while some have coveted after, they have erred from the faith , and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” which is telling you it’s an issue when they neglect the principles of God to the point that the money becomes the priority over everything in life which leads to the worst mistake one can make and that’s having money become what they have primary faith in. So again it’s only an issue with God when you love money and that can lead to money metaphorically becoming your god. As long as you keep God first and operate with His principles being the motive behind your actions then being wealthy is a beautiful thing, it’s so much you can do with money to change situations and better the lives around you whether it’s family or people in less fortunate situations. It ultimately comes down to what you do with it. The best advice I have received from others who have achieved the success I want is to put God & people first in your business endeavors and the money to that level will come.
How It Relates to My Life:
I always wanted to see a different side of life than what was presented to me at birth. The “side of life” I’m referring to is one that most of us can relate to where we’re taught to work a job no matter what because “you gotta do what you gotta do” and if that job winds up not supplying enough income then “you do what you gotta do” and get another job. If you continue to believe that then you’ll continue to live a life like that. The real truth is God gave us a gift and once you tap into that and take whatever sacrifices come with it then you can actually turn your passion into your paycheck. You have to find what you love to do in life no matter what it is. Think about it, corporate America is built off of entrepreneurs. Every company you see started with someone who had a vision and brought it to life (including the one you work for). As individuals we all have the luxury to think for ourselves so even if your dream doesn’t involve entrepreneurship you still have the right to live life in sync with what makes you happy. I say all of that to say life is about doing what you love and you might as well make a lot of money off of it if you live within doing it on God’s principles. I been saying I want my company to be worth “milllions and more” which is one reason why I changed my whole vision to become a health and wellness website. The way I see it , why take on one community when you can take on the entire world via the Internet. I can recall back in New York when a group of entrepreneurs and I met with a gentleman by the name of David Meltzer. He said when you have a lot of money it ultimately comes down to what you shop for that can be the difference between it being a vibrant uprise in your life or a dark downfall in your life. So if you “shop for” ways to give back to communities, build organizations / non-profits or even donate in abundance toward a good cause then life can become very rewarding. I trust/ believe that through God I will be very wealthy and I’ll be changing the life of my Church , My Family and anyone in need. My last message for you the reader is: Keep Climbing , I’ll see you at the top!
How It Relates to My Workouts:
Any client of mine can tell you that when they’re done a good set of exercise I say “money” or “that’s money” + when I workout sometimes I say to myself “get this money Vant” before getting my final & toughest reps in!
