Daily Message from God #3

Dear Jesus,

I read Coffee Lunch Coffee by Muller, Never Eat Alone by Ferrazzi and The Charisma Myth by Olivia Bane. All three books discussed a common theme, networking. What have I learned from the books? I must be proactive in building my network by inviting people to lunch or dinner, asking them important questions, and being genuine, open, warm, powerful and present in the process. Also, Muller suggested to build a portfolio that contains my elevator pitch, resume, 300 to 500 bio and update it often. She insisted that we be prepared to present ourselves once thrown in the pond. Because of that, I created a professional page. Honestly, it’s seems awkward and daunting to invite a CEO or someone in position over for dinner even if we haven’t established that pond. But Muller highlighted that we can mitigate this by preparing in advance, asking important questions, showing what we can lay on the table, and projecting warmth, power and presence.

Actionable plan: Start my Networking Plan where I write my goals, the people I want to network, and the people I already know. I must also be clear on what I want to be known for and establish a brand for myself and sell it. In my case, I think I really want to be known as a great influencer and a legendary world-class empowering public speaker and coach who changes thousands of lives (dream big right? Hihihihi). Everything I study should bolster that image from clubs, networks to projects and skills. Thanks for this message tonight.

For my passage readings today, I tag Isaiah 10 as pride. It reminds me to humble myself. The chapter speaks of God’s wrath upon the King of Assyria who thinks he conquered Israel out of his own might. In the same way, I shouldn’t acknowledge everything as a product of my own effort. Nope. Everything comes from You! Isaiah 11 is unity. It speaks of the time when Ephraim would not be envious of Judah anymore, and Judah wouldn’t be an inimical enemy to Ephraim. Instead, God will use both for His glory.  Isaiah 12 is Thanksgiving. Because of this reconciliation, we would remember Christ as the source of our strength and courage. Isaiah 13 is Trust. God is already in the future. He allows the savior to sprang from the shoot of Jesse. Although he has all good things prepared for the Israelites, they must undergo the trials as a cause of their sin. Probably the message is God’s faithfulness to His promise and divine justice.

Thank you for promising a surprise for this week.

Sending smiles,

Your Kimkim

Hi everyone! I’m kayla. This is my first attempt to share my thoughts through blogging. Got lots of exploring to do. Don’t even know where to start and what to say. To start the ball rolling, allow me to share with you some of the fallacies about Kayla Marie Sarte. 1. Writing is just not my line. Although most considered me as a creative writer, I doubt I have that knack. I’m direct to the point. My essays are straight. As long as I get the message across then that’s fair enough for me. 2.I’m not a walking encyclopedia, got that? How funny it is to be asked by some bunch of kiddos bout tons of stuffs I don’t know or even have heard. Worse? They expect me to answer their queries in a snap. Good thing, I can always find the usual “busy” excuse to elude their endless questions. 3. You just don’t know how pain in the ass reading is to me. I always record the days I spend reading and do my best to keep the pace. Yeah, I’m a literature major but it’s uhmm, …. Except for required readings in my literature classes in the class, I haven’t truly deal with literary works personally. Good heavens, I found John Grisham and Dean Koontz – my all time faves. (In my later posts, I’ll be sharing my thoughts bout their books.) 4. One thing I found truly bleak about me is my loved for movies. I don’t like cinematography or even crave like Glenn Ortiz to be the Steven Spielberg of this race. I just enjoy watching movies on the big screen. That’s all. So, it’s a fallacy that I like cinematography… just the movies. 5. Call me braggart, arrogant. Many think so because of the achievements I gained in the past aching yet meaningful 15 education years of my life. What they don’t know is how negative and perturbed, covered with worries, stressed I am most of the time. No matter how great the laurel I get, I always look back at the failurs I’ve been through in the past. So, that goes to mean, I don’t think highly of myself or consider my awards that much. Top 3 things about me: 1. A Theophile 2. A Xenophile 3. Just Kayla Marie B. Sarte That’s all for now. You’ll get to know more about me soon and about the project 2012 that led me to explore blogging. J One thing is certain for me though, I love who I am for I am fashioned the way I fit exactly in a large mosaic we are all in. Be happy. Live life according to God’s will. – Kayla Sarte
