Do you need a practical, results-oriented way to address the problems and seize the opportunities you face in business and life? Try the Entrepreneur’s Prayer.
use to struggle to pray for my business. It made me feel awkward and uncomfortable. So… I didn’t pray. Then I discovered quite by accident that praying is just like talking with a trusted friend but 10x better.
Praying requires no special training or deep knowledge of the bible. You don’t have to memorize scriptures. You don’t have to say Father God or use King James language.
All you have to do is be yourself. Talk the way you talk.
How I Learned to Pray
I probably looked like this monkey the day I discovered how to pray. I was so frustrated I yelled at the top of my lungs. I unloaded everything I was thinking and feeling on God.
My business and life were not working out like I’d planned. The pressure had become more than I could handle. I blew a gasket. I cussed. I shook my fist. I yelled at the top of my lungs. I unloaded everything I was thinking and feeling on God.
For a second, I thought I’d gone too far. Then magic happened. I got clarity. I knew what to do.
I felt free.
In the opening paragraph, I asked if you need a practical, results-oriented way to address the problems and seize the opportunities you face in business and life?
I was serious. Ever big breakthrough and jump I’ve made in my business and life I credit to the guidance I received from talking with God.
There Are No Requirements
I also made another important discovery. There are no requirements you have to meet. You don’t have to stop your vices or clean up your act to talk with God.The more real you are the easier it is to have a conversation with him.
Of course, it helps to express what you want.
- Help me figure out how to hire and work with the best and brightest
- Teach me how to become a great leader who inspires others to lead
- Show me how to make business decisions that create win-wins
- Or help me break a negative habit like; smoking, getting angry, etc.
So… don’t hold back.
Oh, and one more thing. Don’t play the victim game. It will prevent you from getting the answers you seek. Guaranteed!
God is the Entrepreneur of All Entrepreneurs
God is the original entrepreneur. The creator of all entrepreneurs. He gets us like no one else can. He knows how hard it is to build a successful business and life. He understands the frustrations and difficulties we face.
He is eager to help. All we have to do is ask.
I have found that God provides guidance in ways that are unique to me. I can almost always count on the answers coming in one of the following ways.
- During quiet time while thinking and listening
- Through a colleague, mentor, or coach
- In a book, audio, or video resource
- During long walks or soaks in my hot tub
Don’t worry, as soon as you start having regular conversations with God you’ll figure out where he speaks to you.
Prelude to the Entrepreneurs’ Prayer
I’ve written this prayer inside a framework. It is the framework we use at Entre Coach to help our entrepreneur and business owner clients. It provides them with a practical, actionable way to simplify their day-to-day operation. It helps them reclaim and expand their freedom. It guides them to achieve 10X growth.
We refer to it as the seven components of a business. It applies to life in the same way.
Each of the seven component listed in the entrepreneurs’ prayer includes insights about its functions and a short prayer with specific requests for wisdom and guidance.
