Secret Sauce: The Secret to Being Awesome!

The one thing that each company pictured above holds in common is a secret sauce/recipe.  Each one has found a way to perfect what they do best by simply doing that thing.

No matter how hard you, me or any beverage manufacturer tries to concoct an identical soda, we’ll never be able to compete with the flavor and taste of a bottle of Coke.  Similarly, no matter how many chicken restaurants are erected there can only be one Colonel Sanders and one “Colonel’s Original” recipe.

Each company has developed a secret sauce and secret ingredient that is unmatched and incomparable.

You too possess a secret sauce that CAN’T BE DUPLICATED.  People can try to copy you and try to learn your methods but they can never be you.  Why?  Because God gave the recipe (the vision) and the secret sauce (favor) to you!

Whatever God has given to you today, use it and be bold!  Tap into you secret sauce every day and spread it like wildfire!

When you walk out of your house each morning, you gotta walk out of that house knowing that you’re the colonel of your secret sauce.  You have to own your favor, walk in your calling and be confident while doing it each and every day.

When a hater, imitator or enemy comes along, you’ve got to operate with the mindset of the companies pictured above and keep it moving!  Do you think Coca-Cola loses sleep when other beverage companies come along?  Nope! Why not?  Because they know the power of their secret ingredient.  They know their secret sauce can’t be matched or duplicated so they keep moving forward and they keep being awesome.

No matter what field you’re in and no matter what kind of business you operate, there is only one YOU!  Your secret sauce is awesome and it can never be duplicated!

Scripture of The Day: “This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:6-7)

Be Awesome!

    When you have a relationship with God it is dynamic. Each person’s relationship is special and each person has a special gift. He created you/us in his own image we need to own our title like one owns his or her martial status. When two come together and become one flesh, they are identified by the title MR or MRS. It’s the same when we accept Christ in our lives, we need to own our titles through our gifts that are uniquely given to each one of us.
    Romans 8: 14 “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.[f] And by him we cry, “Abba,Father.””
    What’s your title in The Lord ask him and he will direct you! Claim it without fear!!! Thank you for this beautiful post Erika I am so encouraged to claim his vision has given me and walk in his favor for his vision to come to pass through the favor he pours on us!!!

      Amen! The same way that fighters claim their title before the fight is the same way we need to claim our vision. The difference between us and the fighter is that our fight is fixed for us to win!

Drop me a line!
