6. The secret that changes everything Thrive! with Jevonnah "Lady J" Ellison

    • Entrepreneurship

So, what’s my secret? It’s two chairs. If you’re not familiar with the concept already from the excellent book 2 Chairs by Bob Beaudine, this probably sounds a little cryptic, but let me explain. You set up two chairs in whatever place where you have your quiet time. These chairs should be facing each other, as if you’re setting up to have a meeting for someone (because that’s exactly what you’re doing).
You sit in one of the chairs, and then you allow the Spirit of God to sit in the other. The way I see it, God is first in our businesses, and Jesus Christ is the CEO. We get our wisdom, direction, and leadership from Him. Especially as you become successful in business, you begin to ask yourself whether you can sustain this level of success and performance. The answer is that by ourselves, no, we can’t -- we need God’s strength! In our weakness, he is made strong.
 
In these times, two chairs asks three vital questions:
Does God know your situation? Is it too hard for Him to handle? Does He have a good plan for you?  
I hope you know the answers to all of these! If you have any doubts, tune into the episode to learn what they are. You’ll also learn how to use the two chairs system, why it’s so important to give Him longer to speak than you take, which Scripture is making a huge difference in my life these days, and more!
