It is so easy to get discouraged in the road to manifesting your dreams and passions. Not enough money, not enough time, and not enough support are just a few allowances that we give ourselves to put the passions on standby. When, actually, all this is doing is allowing you to settle with complacency, and giving you more excuses to go further away from your dreams. I have heard so many people tell me that the reason why they are not doing what once was their dream or passion – or even what they obtained a college degree in – is that … Continue reading Feed Your Dreams, Let Them Live
It takes an incredible amount of courage to be an entrepreneur. Not only are you adamantly believing in a dream that many may find ludicrous, you are willing to take the risk in order to make it happen: the risk … Continue reading Being An Entrepreneur: Others May Doubt, But It’s Worth The Risk
About a dozen years ago, I heard about this man named Myles Munroe. At the time, my former pastor’s spiritual father had some ties to Dr. Munroe, and I was able to attend an event that he was speaking at. … Continue reading How Dr. Myles Munroe Has Impacted My Life Personally
One thing that I find so incredibly amusing – but sad – are people that work for a company, are getting paid enough to barely make it from paycheck to paycheck, have to work overtime just to break their back to pay for gas, but say that they “love their job.” I have experienced many people like this in my day, and just about all of them are just waiting to tell the truth. However, they are scared of the possible results. What makes matters even worse, they spend 5, 10, even 15 years of their life working FAR below … Continue reading Why Are You Working For “The Man”?
Twenty-one years ago, a non-intimidating North Carolina State team entered the NCAA Basketball tournament, led by their coach, Jimmy Valvano. Despite ten losses that season, “Jimmy V” did not lose hope in his team, even though they had a struggling 8-6 conference record and lost a total of 33 games in three years. Coming in as a sixth seed in the West Region, they upset #3 UNLV and #1 Virginia, both by one point. Then, the unthinkable happened. They made it to the championship game, playing Midwest Region #1 and tournament finalist Houston – nicknamed “Phi Slamma Jamma” due to their NCAA … Continue reading Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams
In this society in which screens are the new faces, the ageless gem of personal communication is starting to become less attractive. Pictures are the go-to method of meeting people, texts/emails are the go-to solution for handling problems, and social media is the go-to avenue of venting frustrations. Although these all are useful and convenient – especially in such a fast-paced society that we live in – the art of face-to-face still should have prominence. The problem is, in many cases, it doesn’t. Screen talk, whether it be through texting, IM, chat, etc., dilutes the power of truly experiencing non-verbal … Continue reading Can I Look At Your Face For A Moment?
Faith is such an amazing phenomenon. Hebrews 11:1 describes it as the “substance of things hoped for” and the “evidence of things not seen.” The incomprehensible dichotomy is that the beauty of faith is, “I don’t know how it is going to happen, but I believe in God that it will.” Another interesting element to faith is works. James is a strong proponent of this, as he adamantly exclaims that “faith without works is dead.” Now, tie the two together – hope and work. Understand that faith is the lifeline of staying calm and confident in your current situation, have … Continue reading It Will All Fall In Place
Have you ever just sat back and reflected on your growth from the past 6-12 months? Now is the time. Before your get overwhelmed in believing that your dreams are too big for you, take some time and think about how much you have grown over the past year. What situation can you look back and say you are stronger as result of getting through it? Has anyone came to you for advice? Did you handle it better than how you would have before? If you are the same and have not grown in your conflict resolution and goal-setting skills (just … Continue reading Commit Yourself to Grow TODAY
It is so easy for people to lose sight of their purpose because they are so caught up and distracted by all the current cares and challenges. Trust me, I get it. I am not totally free from that struggle either. However, there are always ways to refocus on your goals, which gives you a boost in where you are currently. Understand that this is only a piece to the bigger puzzle of your manifested dreams. Make the best out of where you are. Legacies are not build just based on legends being in comfortable places. They are also built when … Continue reading Are You Sleeping? WAKE UP!
In a recent survey done by NBC, 84 percent said they are not working in their dream job. That is both staggering and disheartening. This means less than two out of 10 people can say that they are doing what can be considered as ideal to them. So, conclusively, it means that the definitive majority of us are doing something that we really do not want to do. I understand that you can’t just go into a company and say, “Hey! Hire me now!” However, while you are waiting, you can continue working on your dream and further perfect it. … Continue reading Don’t Be A Statistic!
