Today, my goal is to encourage listeners to this podcast to decide to be intentional about your obtaining our goals and dreams. Because if you do not, you will find yourself in a constant state of overthinking, confusion, and never being able to get over those roadblocks. I am a living witness that when get deliberate about obtaining a thing, or becoming better at something there is...
In The Beginning
Having an idea and a dream is great. But it has to move beyond being in your mind and it has to be acted it upon. I believe that one of God’s gifts to us is this amazing ability to dream and dream big and dream beyond where we are today. God has given all of us the ability to dream, to create, and to imagine endless possibilities. I know there are a lot of people that are afraid to dream because you do not want to be disappointed and you don’t want to hear the no’s or be ignored by people...
I'm Just Here, So I Don't Get Fined
If you are dating someone that does not support your vision and dreams and they think you are crazy for wanting to walk in your purpose that's a for sure sign they are NOT for you. Even if the idea seems a little far-fetched, it's their job to say I support you and mean it. With anything new, there will be a period of trial and error. We come up with outlandish ideas that are the mind of an entrepreneur; to dream beyond reality. But you know initially, the cell phone was a dumb idea....
Finish, Win, Repeat!
Jack Dixon says, “If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results." Focusing more on changing than getting results is true with any and everything we do. When we focus on finishing and accomplishing our goals, the disappointments and snags won’t be able to keep us down. We'll see them as little bumps in the road that may cause us to shake a bit, but it will not knock us off course because we are determined to Finish, Win, and Repeat!
Will Your Story Use You or Will You Use Your Story? - Carl Lentz
Are you constantly rehearsing your past hurts and disappointments over and over again? Thinking about 2017, what thoughts, feelings, memories did you drag over from 2016 and years past into 2017? How much energy did you give to your past in 2017? Although, glancing at and remembering the past is not necessarily a bad thing, what makes it useless is when we let our past paralyze us and give more attention to what used to be than to what is in front of us now and what lies ahead.

Webster defines it as a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something. Here are a few questions I want you to ask yourself?

(Share, Like, Subscribe) Sometimes it feels like there are certain people assigned you to make your life miserable. There’s not a day or a time when I can log on to my social media and see someone talking about haters. One of the ways you master peace is realizing that everyone is not on your team. My fiancé’s grandmother used to say, all grinning teeth are not smiles. Everyone will not support you, everyone will not agree with you and everyone will not want you to succeed. Link to blog...

Get Pumped About the Grind
Novelist and Poet, Robert Louis Stevenson says, “Don’t judge each day by the harvest that you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” If you are working hard and putting in a few hours a day, either researching, contacting potential clients, or working a job to save money for your dream — don't see that as useless. Even though by 5 PM today you may not see any results from anything that you have done, be okay with knowing that you planted seeds are in the ground being nourished and...
Do something! Do something!. It doesn't have to be something that changes the world. Everybody will not get that opportunity to create a product that everyone will use. Everyone won't be on stage speaking to millions and traveling all over the world. But everyone can make an IMPACT in the lives of people that we interact with daily.
