Preparation creates Opportunity

I have a friend that has coined the phrase...STAY READY!

She posts it on her fb page and gives it voice often. It seems to be her mantra; the self talk that we all need to keep us motivated and moving forward. 

When you STAY READY, you don't have to GET READY. There is a benefit to being prepared for what is to come even though you may not know what that something is. As a kid, my mom used to make me prepare my clothes for school the night before. She wanted me to be better prepared for the school day. Somewhere along the way, I lost that desire and motivation. As an early riser, I always tell myself that I have time in the morning to get ready for the day.

On a recent Saturday evening, I took some time to make sure my clothes for church were wrinkle free and placed my undergarments where I could easily see them; and get this, I even changed my purse. For the first time, in an extremely long time....I was READY for my next day before I laid my head down to sleep.

I felt FREE!

I think this new, old practice will be back again soon.

Are you READY?
