Unleashing the Power of Hunger

In today's competitive business landscape, one quality that can make a significant difference is hunger. Not the hunger for food, but the hunger for success and achievement.

As stated in Proverbs 16:26, “It is good for workers to have an appetite; an empty stomach drives them on.”

This hunger, this burning desire for success, can be the driving force that sets individuals apart and propels them to achieve what others may only dream of.

Les Brown, a renowned motivational speaker, famously said, “You've got to be hungry.” This hunger for success is what separates those who are willing to do what others won't. It is this hunger that pushes individuals to go above and beyond, to work harder, and to continuously strive for excellence. When hiring employees, it is essential to look for this hunger, as it can be a game-changer for your organization.

Unmatched Motivation

Hungry employees have an unmatched motivation that sets them apart from others. They are driven by an insatiable desire to prove themselves and make a mark. This motivation stems from their need to succeed, to provide for their families, and to fulfill their dreams. This hunger for success leads to increased productivity, innovation, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. Hungry individuals are willing to go the extra mile, to put in the extra effort, and to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals.

Adaptability and Resilience

Hungry individuals are more likely to embrace change and adapt to evolving circumstances. Their hunger for success propels them to seek out new skills and knowledge, making them valuable assets in the dynamic work environment. They are not afraid to step out of their comfort zones and take on new challenges. This adaptability allows them to thrive in an ever-changing world and seize opportunities that others might overlook.

Furthermore, hungry employees exhibit resilience in the face of challenges. Their determination to succeed fuels their ability to overcome obstacles and turn setbacks into opportunities for growth. They understand that success requires perseverance and that they cannot let little things like rude comments or setbacks derail their goals. Hungry people operate from their hearts with unshakeable faith, allowing them to stay focused on their dreams and overcome any obstacles that come their way.

Hunger allows for Initiative and Innovation

Hungry workers are proactive and take initiative without waiting for instruction. Their self-motivation and drive lead to increased efficiency and the ability to seize opportunities that others might overlook. When you're hungry, you must create opportunities where others do not see them. The hunger in your belly enables vision and allows you to think outside the box.

The hunger for success often goes hand in hand with a creative mindset. Hungry employees are more likely to think outside the box, bringing fresh ideas and innovative solutions to the table. Their hunger pushes them to constantly seek improvement and find new ways to do things better. This hunger for innovation can drive your organization to stay ahead of the curve and remain competitive in a rapidly changing world.

Hunger Fosters Continuous Improvement and Passion for Learning

Hungry individuals have a constant and never-ending thirst for improvement.

Hungry employees are always seeking ways to improve and grow, pushing themselves to reach new heights.

Furthermore, hungry individuals have a passion for learning. They are avid learners, always looking to acquire new skills and knowledge. This passion for learning not only benefits their personal development but also contributes to the overall growth and success of your organization. Hungry employees bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table, constantly pushing themselves and their teammates to learn and grow.


Team Collaboration

The hunger for success often translates into a collaborative spirit. Hungry employees are more likely to work seamlessly with others, leveraging their collective skills and experience to achieve the common goals of your organization. They understand that success is not achieved in isolation but through collaboration and teamwork. Hungry individuals are willing to share their knowledge, support their teammates, and go above and beyond to ensure the success of the entire team.

Embrace Hunger for Success

In conclusion, hunger for success can be a strategic move that transforms your organization. Hungry individuals bring unmatched motivation, adaptability, resilience, initiative, innovation, commitment to continuous learning, passion for learning, and a collaborative spirit. These skills can elevate your team to new heights and propel your organization towards unprecedented success.

Whether you are hiring or looking to advance in your career, embrace hunger. Seek out hungry, motivated individuals to be on your team, and cultivate hunger within yourself.

How to find your life purpose

In this conversation, we're going to explore the truth about finding your, life purpose, and how to overcome any fears or doubts you may have. Back in 2000 God spoke to me and told me to Go that the USA is my, promised land, my land of milk and honey that I should leave my home in Toronto, Canada, my family, friends and Go.

He told me to go and he will show me the way when I get there. So, I packed my bags and moved to Florida and God did as he promised. He showed me the way. He ordered my footsteps. I just followed my intuition and looked for guidance. God said if you GO, I will make you a great nation, and I will make your name great. Today my podcast and my name Coach Myrna, is great, it is heard in 156 countries around the world. Don't wait any longer, listen to this podcast  and find out how to find your, life purpose.

Synchronicity and purpose

The first thing I did when I got to Florida was to look for an office for my limousine service business. I found an office for my business, but it did not come with parking for a stretch limousine. I couldn’t find a place to park my limousine, so I had the brilliant idea to park it in a church parking lot. My reasoning was that church is only on a Sunday! they are not there during the week.

I promptly received a call from the Senior Pastor who told me if I wanted to park my limousine in the church parking lot, I should write a proposal of what I intended to offer in exchange. When I went to the church to drop off my proposal, I met the pastor who invited me to church.  That started my relationship with Living Word Fellowship church, a relationship that was instrumental in the success of both me and my daughter, who was 11 years old at the time. That was God showing me the way, that was synchronicity.

I just kept moving forward only seeing the next step and never the entire staircase.

My life purpose was to become a Life coach and reach the world

Then God told me Go become a Life coach, I listened and that was also God ordering my steps because the month I graduated from Life coach school with my coaching certificate, was the same month I got fired from my corporate job. I became a self-employed Life coach and again God showed me the way. Someone invited me to be a guest on a radio show, and the radio station WDJY 99.1 FM Atlanta, offered me my own show. Then I heard about podcasting and stared a podcast then I received an email invitation for a TV show on PTWWNTV.

None of this was shown to me when I packed up and left Toronto. God said GO and I went.

Each step along the way God tested me by seeing if I was willing to do the work, he had to see what I was willing to sacrifice. I had to go through the wilderness. God said before I give you a lot, I have to see what you do with a little.

Go: God will show you the way

I remember when I was so broke and had no money for food or gas. I had worked all week and didn’t make a sale, so I didn’t get paid. God said GO to the ATM. I didn’t think I had any money in the bank, but I went and found I had $40 in my account. Don’t even know where it came from. I was ecstatic.

My life continued to be filled with favor and synchronicity.

I shared my story to encourage you to Go: God will show you the way. Pick up a copy of my book Out of the Snares a story of hope and encouragement and see how God showed me the way.

I believe that I was born to bring light to others, that’s my Life purpose

What’s your purpose?

We see things not as they are but as we are.

You have to believe in the promise. God said I know the plans I have for you plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

If you don’t believe in the word or the spirit what God said about you, then you will Never receive the promise.

Have faith believe in the promise

For example, You have to believe in the word, the gesture and the spirit that God will turn every weapon formed against you for your good.

Everything God is going to do for you is already set aside, but sometimes he takes you the long way. The Israelites wandered in the wilderness for 40 years, that was not the direct route. Just keep asking yourself, what is my purpose.

Just Go,  and he will show you the way.
