About Me

My photo
My name is Suzanne Conant and we are a military family and have lived around the world!  I work from home and my husband is a Chief Warrant Officer 4 in the U.S Army and this summer of 2010 will have 23 years of active duty service.  We have two teenage boys and we homeschool.  In September of 2008 I found our team and I truly can’t put into words how wonderful it is to actually make an income while still being at home everyday with my kids! One of my favorite things about our team is that our everyday mission is to help others have the same freedom we do!  There is hope out there for you with whatever you’re trying to accomplish and we are here to help you reach your goals!  I'm looking forward to talking to you soon.

Get out the "Clear Power" window cleaner....

That's right. Get out the window cleaner, it's time to wipe away the blurry smudgy lines that are blocking our crystal view of our bright future! You view your future through what you understand about today. What you understand about today, may not be accurate but it is based on what we learned yesterday. We were all "raised" to believe certain things. But who is to say that these things are 100% accurate? Do you have an opinion about something of which your friend has the direct opposite opinion? Who is right and who is wrong? Would you believe that it is possible for both of you to be right? If you believe that it is gross to eat snails, you probably weren't raised by a french woman.

What you believe predicts your behavior, which results in your action, which affirms your original belief. If you believe that you are a failure, you will probably have little faith in yourself, which means you will either not try or try halfheartedly, then you fail and guess what? You already knew you would. It's a viscous cycle. By the same token, a positive belief will have a positive outcome.

I was not raised to have the confidence of a super model (and I am assuming, here, that super models have a lot of confidence). However, I am a child of God and because of that I know this. "God did not give us a spirit of fear, but rather he gave us a spirit of power, love and self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1:7) What a freeing thought! So let's put an imaginary window up in front of us and write our beliefs on that window. What are your beliefs? Are they positive? Negative? A little of both? The answer is yes. Now, what if we could wipe those negative beliefs (historical inaccuracies) away like they were smudges on that window and write in their place a truth. You just changed the way you see the future. What are some of your beliefs today? Test them for accuracy and replace them with truths. Be Blessed ya'll!
