When You Are In The Valley… USE THEIR FLASHLIGHT

No one has a perfect life. Even Jesus had trials and tribulations. Moreover, we all experience our own personal “Will This Cup Pass?” moments, where we fervently want the struggle to end. Wherever and whenever we are suffering, be it spiritually, emotionally, financially, or relationally, we need 3 P’s to get us through. Prayer – there is no doubt that prayer works. As a devout Christian, I have experienced it first hand. Dr. Roberta Lee, author of The SuperStress Solution, explains, “[People who pray are] better able to cope with stress, they heal faster from illness, and they experience increased benefits to their health and … Continue reading When You Are In The Valley… USE THEIR FLASHLIGHT

Inspire To DO!

Motivation is a strong key to success. Not only success, but RESIDUAL success. However, motivation is nothing without application. Saying it is one thing. Strongly thinking about it is another. However, those just make your brain more tired, and creates a greater sense of false optimism. The gem lies in the DOING.  For many years, I was involved in the fitness coaching/personal training business. In fact, I am still a certified personal trainer, but am no longer doing it full-time (still taking clients – cheap plug). When I would sit down with my clients for the initial fitness assessment, I wish … Continue reading Inspire To DO!

Life Is A Cycle Of “Dump and Take”

There are two ends of the spectrum of ways that people handle their lives. You have those who dump, and those who take. Those who dump spend most of their time telling people about their problems. No type of direction to solve them, but they just want them off their chest. They go along with their lives making others solely responsible for problems and issues they have, without having the skill of problem solving. Handling other’s problems are petrifying to them, and those problems are oftentimes negated and minimalized because their unresolved problems are most important. You also have those who take. These … Continue reading Life Is A Cycle Of “Dump and Take”

Dear Mr. Doubt

Dear Mr. Doubt, I thought I asked you not to contact me anymore. I have some dreams to manifest. It’s hard for me to remember how we even became friends. Better yet, it’s hard for me to understand how we remained friends. Oh, I remember now. There was something about you that was enticing. Oftentimes, I felt safe listening to you. “No one will ever support you.” “That dream is WAY too big for you to accomplish.” “Where are you gonna get the money to do that?” “TV? Really? From your kind of upbringing?” are just a few of the “encouraging” statements … Continue reading Dear Mr. Doubt

Everybody Needs A Biscuit…

Everybody needs a person who can give them some sound advice. Especially someone who they trust and know has their best interest in mind. Look for someone who will not mold you to you they want you to become, but who sees the greatness in you and will sacrifice to make sure you see it as well. No one deserves to be on a mental island alone. Someone needs to be there with them so they can discuss, brainstorm, and encourage. If not, you’ll just be talking to yourself all the time, and that is not very progressive. Everyone needs … Continue reading Everybody Needs A Biscuit…

Common, Common?

What people in your life do you appreciate the most? Let them know that. We all have an inner ego monster that stays hungry. It is up to you to either feed it until it gets fat and harmful, or give it a healthy and balanced diet, so it can work for you and help you boost up others. Evaluate these 10 questions, and think about the first person that comes to mind. Do it instinctively; don’t try to make it someone that it really is not. If it is not your spouse that you are thinking about, that’s okay. … Continue reading Common, Common?
