BILLION SOUL NETWORKS CHURCH PLANTERS IN KENYA
“I am a church planter. So far we have 12 churches planted in the last three years. This alone, I have planted 2 churches. Our vision is to plant six churches this year. My plan for joining the Billion Network is to draw as much from those of like-mind, Spirit and Faith. I see those of us in the network truly working together to further the great commission.” —Bishop Papa, Kenya

On a long flight to Africa this week, I read MOJO: How To Get It, How to Keep It, How To Get it Back If You Lose It by Marshall Goldsmith. What an insightful roadmap at that altitude to achieve an out-of-this-world attitude!
Do you have “MOJO” or “NOJO”? What about the team around you? Marshall states, “Mojo is the moment when we do something that is purposeful, powerful, and positive, and the rest of the world recognizes it.” Our Mojo is apparent when the positive feelings toward what we are doing radiates from inside us and are evident for others to see. In other words, there is no gap between the positive way we view ourselves–what we are doing–and how we are perceived by others. This is Mojo!
The four elements of the MOJO persona are: 1) Identity: Who do you think you are? 2) Achievement: What have you done lately? 3) Reputation: Who do other people think you are? 4) Acceptance: What can you change and what is beyond your control?
The opposite of “Mojo” is “Nojo,” the negative spirit toward what we are doing that starts from the inside and radiates to the outside. It is our choice to:
Get “Mojo” On! or Allow “Nojo” to reign!
Take Responsibility or Play the Victim
Move Forward or March in Place
Run The Extra Mile or Satisfy with Bare Minimum
Loving Doing It or Feel Obligated to Do It
Appreciate Opportunities or Tolerate Requirements
Make The Best Of It or Endure It
Inspirational or Painful To Be Around
Grateful or Resentful
Curious or Uninterested
Caring or Indifferent
Zest for Life or Zombie-Like
Awake or Asleep
Billionaire philanthropist Richard DeVos once said to me, “We cannot choose the season of our life but we can choose how to respond to the season that comes our way.” I challenge you to leave NOJO and move on to MOJO! Blessings!
Until The Last Person Has Heard,
James O. Davis
