SUCCESS, WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN? Week 2 success formula


We come back as promised to share our success formula. This is a formula that employs a prayer strategy.


I can admit that my dreams were often deep within a vault unlikely to see the light of day. Because my dreams had too many questions attached like, how or really or the hardest question, what would be required of me. The reality is it would require a changed me, new and improved.
Spirit knows what it would actually take and leads us into the wilderness for deliverance.

We all have ideas in our minds about what is real and true. We have ideas that make us believe how life is supposed to be for us. There are ideas in us that we are not even aware of, these ideas are working within us creating the dynamics that frame our lives.

We have ideas inside that tell us where you are to live, the type of mate you can and will have, ideas on your work or career path.
For most of us these ideas are limiting, we have a limit on what is possible for us as individuals. We often think in terms of having this or that, instead of having both or all.
It’s funny how shooting for the stars is very far fetched and out of sight.
We must pray for deliverance of these subconscious limitations. We can be delivered from our limiting beliefs. The challenges we need will come to us that will help us become aware of the limits we have within. Necessities become elusive causing new and necessary determinations to be concluded. Life will demand your attention to something that really matters and shifts you into deciding something different, something you never thought or considered you’d decide to do or not to do. This is a way that deliverance works for us. Deliverance opens way to new desires, ideas and attitudes.
Deliverance will cause us to let go or at least it will direct your attention to your needing to let go of something, someone or someway. The wished-for career or mate or residence becomes a thing of the past or it loses its lustra.  Pray to be delivered from ideas of limitations to reach meaningful success.
To see success in any area of life, granted success is more than mediocre, mundane and tolerable, we should be willing to be a dreamer and risk taker.
To be a dreamer and risk taker deliverance from limitations, which includes anxiety, doubting and confusion.
I’m claiming my deliverance while I move to success today.

SUCCESS, what does it really mean

pexels-photo-262488.jpegWe at The Reid Connection have a success formula revealed to us, that we submit to you in hopes you will apply it as you move towards success. We invite you to follow us over the next 4 weeks as we share our success formula.

The world has programmed us to think big and to reach for great achievements to obtain success. Success is certainly the results of our thinking and actions that allows for wonderful valuables, toys, and trinkets.
I would like to suggest however, that we look at our internal thoughts and feelings, focusing on what we really think about ourselves, others and the state of the union, and focusing on what we really feel about the same. Seeing clearly where we really are internally is a major way to achieve success.
Let’s begin by looking within our internal first as we begin our path to success, lets consider success is a result of a good attitude, bold decisions, and our feeling good about who we are and what we want.
What if the world promoted and influenced us to believe that to be successful means a sense of wholeness and wellness. Where people are considered successful based on their confidence and ability to show authenticity with appreciation? And be judged successful secondly based on bigger bank accounts, gaining millionaire status, the career path, driving the car we love, and having a home to brag about? These are all wonderful things that I personally desire too.
Now, as I step over the line to cross into the senior part of my life, which is only a number given to us, to mean senior, but it is also a time when things in life become clearer and we have understanding about how life functions and what brings about a better functioning life.
Starting with the process of HEALING:
Increased income and more money as opposed to wealth and riches, which are different in definition dont always mean you are successful. More money does not necessarily mean wealth or success. I have learned that more money can mean more problems and more debt due to the way we manage money, which may come out of a mindset of lack, not enough or just enough. A mindset of insecurity, fear, and inadequacy, or a mindset of competition, neediness,and validation. Let’s do mindset checks regularly.⚖
We will chase wealth and riches until we can develop a mind to master the management of finances from a healthy soul.
We must pray for healing. Healing cures us of the ills that keep us wishing for things to make us feel better and feel good internally. Healing is to feel better rather then sick. We’re no longer sick and feeling bad when we’re healed. It is an illusion that money gives happiness and confidence. Money does not give us internal well being. Money without healing can lead to addictions, abuse, and misbehavior.
When you are sick with health issues, you need healing. When you are sick with heart break, you want healing, when you know you’re not feeling good, you seek healing. So, let’s look to be healed and feel good. Take time to focus on how you’re feeling daily, to discover what will allow you to feel good. Thats when success is experienced.

  1. Think about what you want to BE-DO-HAVE
  2. Think about it always
  3. Imagine no other possibilities
  4. Lose all pessimism
  5. Reject all fear

This formula was given to me by my pastor a few years ago and I’ve held on to it ever since. I live by it and it is something that has blessed me and I want to share it with the world. There are a few more steps but for now these steps are the steps   we need to  tear down strongholds and break yokes .

Receive what you believe in 2018!

Let us start the New Year off with recieving what we believe is ours according to what God promises. We are all open to receiving in ways that are acceptable to us; for instance if its money, food, a car, or a job earning more. These are things that first come to mind to be received. However, receiving goes much further and we need to be open to all receiving is and how it works in our lives. We are at times resistant to receiving, due to a lack of awareness, we miss it when it’s not material or instantaneous. Receiving is to accept or take something that comes to you which can be material or spiritual. If it’s for your good you accept or take it with thanks giving, if it’s not good you simply give a firm no thank you.

Receiving is progression, it moves us from one place to another. You can say, it is the vehicle of transporting, of transformation, and of change to a new life filled with new experiences.

We experience life in accordance to all and what we have received. What you have received means what you have been taught and believed is true and accurate. It is believing in what the influence of authority figures and noticeable elites have impressed upon us.

Receiving is a path. It makes way to the next thing in our lives whether for better or not. We all have had friends or relatives whom we’ve learned good things and bad things, people who we owe recognition to, for an introduction to a path of blessing or destruction.

To receive understanding, revelation, insight, and enlightenment, is to receive the opportunity to make a new choice that can bring the benefit of a better life. To receive is to be inspired. To receive is to be challenged. When we receive, we then conceid to move forward; It is our decision to rid ourselves of information recieved in the past that blocks better outcomes.

We must insist on getting clarity of every desire and dream, making it crystal clear in our heart and mind; Have determination to have a more desirable experience in every single area of  life in order to gain something more, leading to better outcomes. This is where the power of receiving leads to joy.

If better outcomes is what we dream of ; We will have a flickering light go on, whereby light comes in, (those aha moments) revealing something new and if we conceid to the truth of the light, which is to recieve it, then, like as a metamorphesis we act differently, ready to make new decisions with a new attitude and determination. Although there is still some darkness regarding other life subjects, until the next array of light comes in, then another metamorphesis. The flickering of light flickers and flickers throughout the course of life disspelling darkness unto a beautiful species evolves. The caterpillar becoming a butterfly.

In the same way we can evolve by receiving light, we can come to destruction by what we recieve also. Receiving can at times mean coming to the truth about ourselves and accepting the blocks and barriers we’ve held on to, even letting go of friends that should no longer hold that title. Receiving these nuggets can cause anger and regret, you may even have a bit of a pity party. But be assured the truth will not leave you and it will set you free to a new direction. So walk in all you’ve received. This is the power in receiving.

The question is how do we live open and ready for continual receiving, allowing light to disspell the darkness, (the darkness, what I call the matrix), and walk as change agents carrying the light to help others.

We must remain in the receptive mode, fact checking for insight that will bring evolvement, thereby making us new creatures.

Let us make it a practice to be open to inspiration. Let us seek to be inspired by what we hear and see in one another.

As believers we know that receiving the gift of salvation gave us the promise to live with God now and forever, the gift (salvation) received was the end of a life doomed and destined for an eternal death. Receiving is chance.

Everything must be received! As a believer, we receive salvation, health, healing, wealth, love, and right relationships when we receive by confession Jesus Christ.  Believers have been given by God access to greater life, taken through believing. Receiving is the only way to have any of the above. First believe then receive. Believers have determined to believe in Jesus and to receive what Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection has granted us; which is power and authority in His name. We take action to make change happen by praying and asking “in the name of Jesus”. This is again the power and joy in recieving.

What will you be receiving in 2018? Why don’t you make a list and email it to someone 💌. You can review it this time next year.

As always, with love

Repent , Renew, Restore


Repentance:  The traditional understanding is asking for forgiveness of wrong doing (sin). But it’s actually a changing of the mind.  God gives us a place to repent when he reveals his way and his mind about things. We are to change the way we think to getting a clear understanding on how God want us to think on any and every subject. We are to get the mind of God and thereby have a renewed mind.

Isaiah 30:15

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy one of Israel says: In Repentance and rest is your Salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.

Acts 3:19:

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.


We Renew our minds by examining our thoughts on any and all subject matters.

Then seek to get the mind of Christ by.

1: Spending quality time in His word and agreeing with what the bible says, also trading our beliefs and thoughts for the truth of God’s word regarding who we really are. If we do this then the specific point or points God is targeting in us to make the change to the person he really wants us to be in him will begin to form. Then we can release all beliefs of limitation, lack, and fear that ways of the world has taught us . The renewing of the mind will help us develop “Right Thinking”, this is good, because in order for that to happen we must know what to think right about.

Romans 12:2

Do not conform to the pattern of this world . but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s  will is , his good, pleasing and perfect will.

“Be transformed”  The process of being transformed is God’s job to do, our job is to Let Him.

Ephesians 4: 22-24

You were taught , with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;

To be made new in the attitude of your minds;   and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.


This is where we come into all that is ours in accordance to the plan and purpose God has. We are restored from our limited selves to our divine selves. We go from seeing  our smallness to walking in our greatness. The lack or insufficiency ends. Then we begin to walk in, and start recognizing the abundance and favor shown to us. We stop talking out of the ignorance of not knowing to having the awareness that  allows us to walk  in the outcomes dictated by our expectancy, declarations and authority. we are restored to our rightful place as Heirs, Creators, and powerful, victorious people.

Deuteronomy 30: 3 -10 (read whole chapter)

God Your God

Will restore everything you lost; He’ll have compassion on you ; He’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered. No matter how far away you end up, God Your God , will get you out of there and bring you back to the land your ancestors once possessed. It will be yours again. He will give you a good life. He will cut away the thick calluses on your heart and your children’s heart freeing you to love him with your whole heart and soul and live,  Really live. The LORD your GOD will inflict all these curses on your enemies and those who hate you, who were out to get you. And you will make a new start , listening obediently to God, keeping all his commandments that I’m commanding you today. God ,  your God , will outdo himself making things go well for you: you’ll have babies get calves , grow crops, and enjoy an all around good life.

Yes, God will start enjoying you again, making things go well for you just as he enjoyed doing it for your ancestors.

But only if you listen obediently to God, your God and keep the commandments and regulations written in this book of revelation. Nothing half hearted here you must return to God, Your God, totally heart and soul holding nothing back.
