"Stephanie, you're worthless."
"Stephanie, you're not good enough to be successful."
"Stephanie, you're going to fail."
In 2017, those were the words I said to myself over and over again. I never said them out loud. And I never said them in front of other people.
But when I looked myself in the mirror, those were the words I said to myself over and over again.
"No matter what you do, you are going to fail."
It was a constant battle I'd had with myself since I can remember. No matter what goal I'd accomplished or compliment I received, I just couldn't seem to get past thinking of myself as a "no good failure."
And the deep-seated belief within me that I wasn't good enough to succeed led me to constantly sabotage myself over and over again.
At that time, if I released a product online and it did really well, I would stop selling it.
If I had a client who was paying me a lot of money, I would stop working with them.
No matter what happened in my business, every time the Lord allowed me to achieve a new level of success, I would find some sort of way to ruin it.
Sis, if you're on this same path, please hear me when I say you are NOT alone, and this is NOT your fault.
It's literally the enemy trying to keep you from your God-given purpose. It's the enemy trying to steal, kill and destroy your dream like it says in John 10:10.
For me, it was the enemy using my own thoughts to kill my dream.
And my self-sabotaging behavior continued over and over again until one day, I couldn't take it anymore.
I went to the Lord and asked Him what I could do to change my sabotaging behavior and finally step into my God-given purpose.
And you know what He said to me?
The Lord told me to stop seeing myself through my eyes, and start seeing myself through HIS eyes.
I needed to start seeing myself the way GOD talks about me in His Holy Bible.
I'll never forget the moment when I felt the Holy Spirit reveal that to me. That same night, I opened up the Bible and starting verse by verse, writing down each and every time the Lord said something positive about me as His child.
Like in Joshua 23:8-11, where it says "The Lord my God fights for me."
And in Romans 8:37, where it says "I have complete victory through God."
I did this over and over again until I had over 30 pages of notes describing everything good, wonderful and successful the Lord says about me in His Word.
I started saying these words out loud to myself every single morning and every single evening. I'd wake up in the morning, spend time with the Lord, and then I'd take out this 30-page document and read every single scripture out loud.
After six months of reading these scriptures to myself every single day, something in my mind began to transform.
Somehow the thoughts of "I'm gonna fail" turned into "with Christ, I have complete victory."
Somehow the thoughts of "I'm not good enough" turned into "in everything, God works for my good."
And one day -
Just like that -
I knew I was successful.
I knew I was victorious.
I knew that because I am the daughter of a Risen King, I will accomplish every single thing He purposed me to accomplish in this world.
And it was through that mindset I was able to launch the Godlywood Girl Mastermind group in January 2018.
Then turn that program into the Godlywood Girl School Of Purpose.
Which led to me creating the Godlywood Girl School Of Business.
And now developing my next Godlywood Girl film.
One success led to the next, and it all started from making ONE major shift:
I stopped seeing myself through my own eyes, and I started seeing myself through God's eyes.
And sis, if you want to do the same thing, I created a book called 365 Daily Affirmations For Powerful Women Of Faith that contains 365 of the very same affirmations I said to myself for six months straight.
I released that book back in 2018, but this past year, the Lord allowed me the blessing of recording the entire book into a 30-minute audio CD that you can play on repeat.

And sis, if these affirmations bless you in any way, please share it with someone who you know needs to hear it.
Thanks so much for your time, sister of Christ.
Here’s to us stepping into our God-given purpose in 2020.

ABOUT GODLYWOOD GIRL
Welcome to Godlywood Girl sis! My name is Stephanie Rodnez, Founder & CEO of GodlywoodGirl.com, and my purpose in life is to help you find yours.
A few years ago I made a terrible business decision that almost brought me to bankruptcy. The fear, self-doubt and lack of confidence I went through as a result of that poor decision kept me from living my purpose for 2 long years -
Until one day I saw a video by ET Thomas that literally changed my life. His "You Owe You" reawakened my purpose, and from that moment on, I knew I wanted to help other women reawaken their purpose too.
That's why I created Godlywood Girl, a motivational resource company designed to help women of Christ get unstuck, stop feeling frustrated and start living God's greatest purpose for their lives - just like Dr. Eric Thomas' video did for me.
My greatest desire is to empower at least 5 million women of Christ to find their God-given purpose, starting with YOU. Click below so I can send you a free copy of my Find Your Purpose Journal today ➡️➡️➡️ www.purposegift.com
