We don’t always have to make change happen, we simply must allow it to happen and not resist it! We must learn to manage change because we cannot avoid it. So, let’s face change head on! There will never be the perfect time to take the next step, but if we don’t sow, we will not reap.
Manage your expectations, resistance or fear of change
Don’t wait to see what others may do
Don’t allow the fear of failure keep you from trying
Meet Candy H. Speight, Owner/Cert. Life Coach/Prof. Organizer – During her 32-year career at Xerox, she spent fifteen (15) years, as a Field Service Manager. Her primary role was to manage, coach and counsel people, not only in the work environment, but also from a personal perspective. As a professional organizer, for more than 10 years now, she has always wanted not only to organize various living spaces for my clients, which will always remain her passion. As we move forward, as a certified life coach, she will inspire, encourage, motivate, and empower women to be the best that they can be, by un-cluttering their lives; mind, soul and space. She has wonderfully loving, hardworking husband, Kurt, (who supported her decision to retire in order to pursue her dream), a very grown son and two beautiful grown daughters .
The steps of a good man [woman] are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Psalm 37:23 KJV
When I started Order Your Steps back in 2011, amongst other things, life coaching was one of my goals. I’d wanted to continue to learn and grow, even at my age, so coaching was a skill that I wanted to become better at. Over the years, loving my work as a professional organizer and after becoming an evangelist, the goal of life coaching simply fell off the list.
However, back in July, the idea of life coaching resurfaced and I began this journey to becoming certified. Here we are 5 months later and I DID IT!… As you may have remembered, initially, I must admit that I was a little (a LOT) apprehensive, but the excitement and the anticipation of what the Lord has for me next had won out over the fear of learning something new and wondering what’s ahead.
Ultimately, we must know that our STEPS are Ordered. I cannot begin to tell you the miraculous things that have happened on this journey. On the day that I received this text message above, I was asked to speak to a young couple that didn’t need a therapist, but just someone to listen with an impartial ear. Although, their situation was rather challenging, I spoke to them individually and allowed the Holy Spirit to do the rest. The path that the Lord has laid for me is becoming clearer and clearer….
Please keep me in your prayers as I continue to walk in my calling and Live on Purpose!
As we enter another year, we all must Be Intentional about investing in the health of our mind and body, as well as our space. The scripture says that we should “prosper and be in health, even as our souls prosper”. We often think of prosperity as increase in our money and finances, but in actuality, to prosper means to be strong and flourishing; to thrive and succeed in what we do. We must invest in ourselves, so that we can be all that we can be, for US and for all those around us. Now is not the time to keep moving forward. We cannot afford to dwell on what’s behind us, but focus on what’s ahead!
Daily journaling forces us to be more self-reflective, and this can be an important element of self-care.
Plan our days, weeks, months… Time is valuable, so we need to manage our time well.
Learn a new skill or strengthen a currrent one. It’s always important to continue to learn and grow.
Daily exercise has been linked to more energy, more productivity, reduced stress, improved brain power, better memory, and even increased creativity.
Eat right each day, fueling our body with nutrients. When we focus on eating healthier choices, we will feel better and have more energy.
As we move rapidly into 2023, I’ve been working diligently to update our website. We’ve been long overdue for a website facelift and this seemed like the ideal time. Our Order Your Steps Enterprise has expanded and grown by pivoting from simply professional organizing and has added a new life coaching component to our portfolio of services. Our goal to minimize the stress and eliminate the frustration associated with having cluttered minds and cluttered spaces for women, career professionals and entrepreneurs all over the world.
So, please let us know how you like our New Look!!
2023 is rapidly approaching! We must Dream Big and Plan for Bigger… Take a moment to reflect on the year that has passed. Let’s focus on our positive accomplishments and not dwell on the negative. It is very difficult to build for Bigger without a firm foundation. We want next year to be a year of self-empowerment for us all. A year for us to have the confidence, in who will be and what we are capable of, and to take at least one step closer to our goal, dream and purpose. A dream without action is just a wish.
It’s always the right time for us to seize the opportunity to learn, grow, and be empowered to make our dreams a reality!
