Today is about being Unstoppable.

I am believer in positive thinking. You can manifest anything if you just believe.

We are living in some weird times. They are some people who are experiencing the best times in their life and enjoying the fruits of their labor. Everything is great.

And then there are people like me who are grindin. That every day there is a different type of struggle.

Every time you go up one level, the problems become complex and less easier to solve. And the Hate goes up as well.

And they are things that cannot discuss with everyone and risk is greater for all involved.
I am no longer in minor leagues; I am in the major leagues with a lot danger lurking around every decision.

This is when your Faith is essential. You must transform yourself into being Unstoppable.
An unstoppable person is someone doesn’t falter in the face of adversity. A person will get knocked down millions of times and will continue to fight.

A person that can change tactics in order to achieve their goals. A person that is willing to make sacrifices in order get the next level.

A person that has an uncompromising spirit and a general hunger to succeed.

The requirements to become unstoppable: Faith in yourself and a direct lifeline to God.
The only person you can really depend on to constantly uplift you is God. Everyone else is human and bound to fail you at least once.

Know inside you are larger than the circumstances around you and that God will give you favor that help you reach that next level.

God is such an awesome God that protect from enemies that you don’t even know about. These enemies aka haters are double agents. They have friend/family like characteristics but they don’t have your best interests at heart.

Be careful who you share your goals with; you never know their secret motives. Some just have one simple motive; to make sure you never reach your full potential. This can be friends and family. No more is immune.

So on this Sunny Friday: Believe in yourself and become Unstoppable. Once you believe and have Faith in yourself; you will have ability to move mountains.

Today is about having direction.

Even though I am girly girl; I have some masculine tendencies. My dad raised me like the son he never had. LOL :)

So I absolutely hate asking for directions. I have been hours late for events because I was too stubborn to ask for directions.

I always believe I am close to my destination and that I can figure it out. I also feel that actually asking for direction is giving up in a way.

I believe there are many Believers are stubborn with our relationship with God.

We believe that we are intelligent enough to figure out life all by ourselves and giving our situations to God is giving up in a way.

Faith has nothing to do with intelligence. If you allow your intelligence to get in way; you will never have the close relationship with God that we all crave.

God wants all the glory and wants you be a testimony to others. If He allows you to believe that you did it ; you would take all the credit for yourself and your abilities.

Faith is something that cannot be conceptualized with just intelligence alone. Faith works in mysterious ways that cannot always be quantifiable by reason which is the main component of intelligence.

Faith does require two items: belief and letting of your control. You must belief that God can do all things and you must step out of the way so God can do it.

This must be done in order to receive the blessings that God has for your life and to step into your destiny.

Allow your faith to be your GPS for God. Allow it guide your path. It will never fail you. *like Mapquest LOL!*

Blessing the in midst of disappointment

Today is blessing the in midst of disappointment.

When I was in college, I first started off at Howard University and then transferred to Spelman College due to homesickness. I am an Atlanta girl to my heart :)

Now I have already dreamed of being AKA despite the fact my father ‘s insistence of being a Delta. But I knew when I transferred that competition was stiff.

I was naturally disappointed when I didn’t make line at Spelman.

People always ask me now if I would pledge in Graduate Chapter. My answer is no. Not because of hate or being salty. I think it would change me as a person.

Being a Spelman woman, I am already part of rich legacy that has sustained all these years.
During certain times in life, you will experience disappointment. Some times there are things that we want are not aligned with God’s will.

I believe that I am better person without making line. If I would gotten what I wanted; I would not have strong enough to deal with some other storms in my life.

Not to mention that I would have been complete out of control and drunk with power. I would have been type that would have worn some pink and green every day :)

I had a lot of maturing to do and I did not have right attitude that would have been essential. God kept me for making dumb mistakes by taking my ego down a notch. And I needed it :)

Despite not making line, I made lifelong friends through the process. As transfer student, I made a majority of my friends (7 of them) during that process

While none of us made line, we have experience that binds us together for a lifetime :)

There are few times in your life that you get an opportunity to become put on a asymmetrical wig and become Salt n Pepa for a hour. LOL!! We have lifelong memories that we still giggle about :)

Sometimes there is a blessing during a disappointment. I believed that my blessing would be making line but my blessing was friendships that were created.

God knows what is best for you. Sometimes God will take away opportunities that you cannot handle that may not be in your best interests.

While it might be disappointing, after time passes you will realize how much those disappointments shapes you into the person you are today.

Thank the Lord that we are all more than what we used to be :)

So on this cloudy Tuesday, stay optimistic even during your disappointment. You never know what blessing is wrapped into it.

Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.

Black Women being so Single later in life

Today instead of my inspiration tweet, I will speak on this whole issue why so many Black Women are Single.

There are other races with similar issues as well such Korean men but it is not as publicized.

This is rare so here is my take. Finding a man is similar to getting the getting the exclusive Birkin Bag regardless of race.

The "Birkin" bag is a hand-built purse from Hermès that start at $6,500. They are distributed to Hermès boutiques on unpredictable schedules and limited quantities.

A Whole Sex in the City Episode was dedicated to it. I will always covet an Birkin Bag that way I covet someday getting married.

Most woman most would love a Birkin Bag. They would go about getting one in 2 different ways:

  • Some woman will get an imitation Birkin Bag and rock it like its real thing. It doesn’t have special amenities that Birkin Bag. It also doesn’t last as long. And you know you frontin and pretending that its real :)
  • Then there are the some women will save their money for years until they afford one. Then they will treat themselves to one.

The way you go about obtaining a Birkin Bag is the way you date.

Now I have tried a couple of “imitations” but they only made me want “real” one more. The Imitation have been so good that I didn’t even really if it wasn’t real or not. But they never lasted which is illustrated they were not “real”

I am willing to wait for a “Real” Birkin Bag and treat myself.

Now I have no judgment on whether you want entertainment instead of true love (imitation bag vs real bag). But I do have one request: Just pick something :)

I believe at times that women are so picky that we make no choice at all and waste a lot of time. Enjoy life; don’t limit the possibilities in your life right now. Have fun during the process.

#NEWSFLASH# Every man is not marriage material and shouldn’t not be treated as such.

When a man is ready to settle down; he should be convincing you. Not the other way around.
When He is ready; he will contact you. We don’t give men enough credit. When you they want something they know how go after it. Make him get aligned with God and chase YOU.

We as women make situations complicated when its not. Either they are being serious or entertainment themselves. Pure and Simple.

It took me a long time personally to get this. Now instead of showing my interest and coming at dudes hard, I now wait to see what they are going to do. Life has been SO much better once I changed my perspective.

I am not that romantic but I am passionate about what about I care about. Guys must now show me their passionate side. Its showtime :)

If a man really wants me; he must be willing to show me AND BE WILLING TO COURT ME. I am done proving myself. My reputation speaks for itself. Either you want me or you don’t.

Instead acting like a man; I am now the true lady that God and Spelman wanted me to be. An lady allows a man to lead the relationship. This cuts out the posers , imitators of love and serial dates.

If doesn’t want to put in the work to keep and maintain you. It is on the next one :)

Men are buses; another one will come. Now the bus might break down or be hours off schedule; but it will come. Just be patient.

Today is about Confirmation .

On importance items , confirmation is necessary. I always make sure I have confirmation meetings, hair appointments even dates.

Webster’s Dictionary defines confirmation is something that supports, validates, or verifies something else. Confirmation is particularly important in the Christian world.

God will send a dream, a word that is so radical that you afraid to share it with others. It is so amazing that you wonder if God spoke to you or did you dream it?

That is when attending Church is key. And sometimes it is minister who can give the confirmation and sometimes others in the church.

God will provide you with the confirmation you need in a way that you would understand. I can
remember when I was making the decision to become an entrepreneur, I needed confirmation.

I was sick of working for other people and not having control over my life. God had spoke to me but I was afraid to jump out on faith.

So I remember that God spoke to me in two ways: the pastor gave a Word to spoke directly to me. Then when I was leaving the church in the parking lot, I dropped my bible and was picking it up, a older woman was standing in front of me. Then she said to me “ I know you are afraid but trust him. No matter God will always protect you”. She gave me a hug which is common at church. I looked with so much wonder; I couldn’t believe it.

So on this Sunny Sunday: Spend a little time with God in prayer and then seek confirmation. He will provide the confirmation needed in the most amazing ways. Hey this could be the confirmation for some of you 

Never stop believing  What God has for you is for you. Be the Catalyst for Change :)

Today is about judgment.

So it coming up on crunch time for those training for Peachtree Road Race and there are runners everywhere in downtown Atlanta training.

I am an new runner, so I still remember when I saw people running down the street panting looking like they were on death’s door thinking “I don’t get it”.

When I see a runner like that first thought now is wow, I wonder where they are running from.
Now as I runner, I clearly understand the running about your endurance and perseverance. It throws all vanity out of the runner and gives you tremendous amount of discipline.

Show me a runner and I will show you someone that is great discipline and ability to focus. It also has a calming effect and helps you think clearly.

Clarity is essential to hear from God.

Being a runner is similar to being an Christian. We are all out here running this race of life. We are not always racing against each other but rather toward a higher calling.

So when you see a pessimistic, hateful , backsliding mean spirited Christian, don’t judge. You have now idea where they are running from. You may have caught them in low endurance or weak moment.

Even the best runners catch a cramp at some point. :)

So on rainy Saturday, don’t be so quick to judge. You don’t know the level of endurance it is taking on someone’s Christian walk. Pray for their strength and move on.

When you judge others; the same harshness you bestow can be turned onto you . Be the Catalyst for Change :)

Being in our Little World

Today is about being in our little world

With economic downturn, it seems there are two types of people in the world (1) people maintaining their success and (2) those struggling to get ahead.

Times like this often times bring out the worst in people. We have seen more random acts of hatefulness increasing each day.

I believe the biggest one is neglect. Everyone is struggling with something right now so it is easy to become consumed with your own life.

But this is where your breakthrough occurs. God wants us to manifest his love on a everyday level.

If you want God to bless you, be a blessing to someone else.

You can bless people in various ways. It is not about money. It is about providing the support that is needed. Your blessing can be phone call, kind words or an listening ear.

When you can think about others while in the midst of your own struggles your blessings can be double or even triple.

So on this Sunny Friday, consider everyone feelings and attempt be a blessing for at least one person per day.

It can enrich your life in ways you never thought were possible. Be the Catalyst for Change :)

Today is about Pushing Thru

Today is about Pushing Thru

During the last couple of years, I have experienced incredible highs and dizzying lows.

The reason why I write my tweets is because I have been at both spectrums and like to motivate all to fight and preserve through the dark times.

The best thing to happen to me was contact lenses; otherwise I would be really unlucky in relationships ;)

Prior to my transition in contacts the summer before 7th grade , I remember I had met a new guy thru another friend who had just moved into our school district.

We had talked on the phone the entire summer and we were in a relationship . But we have never seen each other face to face.

During this time, wearing glasses was so not cool. So my secret of having glasses was safe.

I figured I would work hard for him to like me that my glasses wouldn’t matter. Or so I thought.

So on my first day of school, I was ready to show off my new boyfriend until he found out my secret that I had really, really bad vision. So he saw, we broke up immediately.

Now I am know that sounds like a horrible story but really isn’t. The silver lining was that I was so upset by situation that my mother finally allowed me to get contacts and forever changed my life.

And the guy: He got a really bad case of acne that scarred his face. Karma is a powerful thing :)

God will sometimes send a gut wrenching situation that ultimately has a good outcome in the end. God will place you into the fire not to damage you but rather refine you into a better person.

Don’t resist the process. Allow yourself to shaped by God. He knows what is best. :)

So if the heat is getting to you on Sunny Thursday: Push thru. This refining process is ordained
by God and set you on the path of your destiny.

Trust. Believe. Achieve. All things are possible.

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. Be the Catalyst for Change. :)

Too Busy

Today is about being too busy.

I am very busy person. I schedule everything even personal time. I am constantly on the run; going from one meeting to next.

When the meetings are done; it is usually time for sleep. I actually count how long I am sleep to ensure I am getting enough hours. I know, I know; I am anal retentive.

But for Christians, that is sometimes how Evil enters your life.

While I do schedule time for prayer. . you do have to be a little flexible to spend some extra time with God.

When you are so busy with life; you lose the ability to (1) spend time in God’s presence and (2) being able to hear Him.

I call it spiritual white noise. Spiritual white noise is when you feel with so many distractions that you cannot think or pray.

When you feel the pull of God; pay attention. There usually for reason for you to pay attention .
God has our best interests at heart. Be careful assuming you know the outcomes; good and bad.

You never know what is going on behind the scenes.Every frustration, every delay is ordained by God.

Sometimes that frustrating delay like you cant find your keys can save you from a car accident .

Don’t try to understand the purpose of God. Just trust it.

So those like myself that busy every second of the day, spend a little extra time with God; you never know how it can really impact your life.

So on this rainy and cloudy Tuesday, continue to fight on the journey of life but allow a little extra time with God. Your soul needs it. :)

Allow God change your life. He is truly the solution to all life’s problems.

Behind the Scenes

Today is about the behind the scenes story.

In today’s society, we are totally obsessed with total life of a celebrities: their professional and personal lives.

We love all the gossip and first hand accounts of behind the scenes story. Sex . Lies ; Betrayal; Triumph. Ten or even twenty years ago, we had no idea about the personal lives of celebrities. Back then, celebrities felt that needed a bit of a mystery to stay successful.

I believe that knowing the behind the scenes story is good because it gives sense of perspective in our lives. It is easy to see all the problems in your life rather than see the good.

There are millions of people who are in the top of the game professionally but are struggling in other areas. No one is immune from life’s struggles. They are used by God as character building.
So when you bogged down when it seems to be problems of life remember you are building your behind the scenes story. All the greats have to encounter difficulties to triumph.

Belief in yourself is all you need in life to survive. God will take care of the rest :)

Live your life like you are on stage. You never know who is watching .

Resist Temptation

Today is about temptations.

Since my grandmother’s death and turning 31, I am beginning to come around to the fact that I need some changes in my personal life so I can get married and start a family.

One thing about me in relationships guys either: (1)really really love me or (2)really really hate me.There is no in between .

So ended up speaking with a guy yesterday that I dated briefly when we were neighbors back in 2006 & 2007. I know, I know, bad idea :(

Of course it was drama filled and I always felt that he really didn’t care for me but was physically attracted to me. We argued all time and it was a mess. And we still dated other people.

So imagine my surprise when he actually admitted that he really did care for me but didn’t want to show it because he was angry that I wouldn’t break my celibacy.

That had my ears ringing. He actually withheld love because I wouldn’t express me love physically. I had made a covenant with God and no man is worth evoking God’s Wrath.
But it did make wonder how many other guys felt the same way but didn’t have nerve to tell me.
Has our society become so jaded and messed up that we all have to test drive everything before purchase?

The conversation made me wonder about my current friend?/relationship drama? I begin to doubt my decision I made so long ago.

As my friends are becoming engaged quickly day by day. . I do start to wonder if I should drop the celibacy to just see what happens.

Temptation always plays on some element of doubt that you have been quietly dealing with. Of course, I have wondered if my relationships have been doomed because of being celibate.

Temptations comes in many forms . Temptations doesn’t come in ways that you can easily resist.

It also comes in the areas where your faith is a little low. I have seen God make miracles in my professional life but not in my personal life. For other people, it is vice versa.

Trust God and believe in his word. God will never request for you go against Him or covenant with Him.

This type of temptation usually happens when you are close to a breakthrough so hold on even when you fed up and frustrated.

Resist the temptation and God will provide more than you can ever imagined. God can restore you and give you back the time you thought you had lost :)

Today is about letting go.

Since I have been running so much for training, I have been listening to a lot of Drake. I can completely relate his perspective.

I have tried to turn over a new leaf and do more partnerships with other entrepreneurs only to realize why I didn’t do it in the past.

I am maverick; an innovative thinker. I move fast and it is hard for some keep up with my pace. I am not for the weak at heart. I am also relentless and I can tell from the first business meeting if it going to work.

I can usually spot laziness, instability and overall unprofessionalism a mile away. Then I believe I am being too hard on people and continue to move forward.

And I am disappointed each time. Some people are not ready for major leagues for a variety of reasons.

I can honestly I have met more unprofessional people last week then I have met in the last two years. I can deal with a lot things but one thing you cannot mess with is (1) my money and (2) my time.

While I try to be inspiration and motivational; I have to keep 100%.

There are some places that God is taking you that is not meant for everyone. God blesses within measure and whether you can handle it .

People say they want to be blessed but don’t want to work that it takes to get there. Ambition and Success is not for the weak at heart.

Business is really just a game. Everyone has a position to play; pay attention when people cannot play their position. If you don’t in the end it will cost you.

Personal feelings, whether good or bad, are out the window. Sooner or later , you will see the situation and people for what they really are: People who are not ready.

Egos should be checked at the door. The best business person is person that most humble.
The person who will talk to anyone at any level. The person who is focused on the tasks at hand instead looking important.

Most people want success handed to them and to mentored. #NEWSFLASH Mentorship is dead; you better get out here and fight for what you want in life.

God will show you who is ready to the ride and who is not. Allow the situation to play itself out without emotion.

Its difficult to let go of people in your life that is hindering your journey but sometimes it must be done.

You have choose to whether to go toward the happiness you have prayed for or continue to struggle to make it happen with knuckle so you wont be seen as disloyal. Usually the most loyal person in the group is the person who eventually gets left out in the cold.

Be careful about being a team player; play your position but don’t ever allow your position to affect your overall happiness.

In the business you have to take chances and move on instinct. You cannot make major moves in a group.

When God is preparing you for an blessing; he shakes everything in your life. Some of the shaking is doesn’t feel good but it is essential to your blessing.

So today: Stop and pay attention. Get aligned with God so He can speak to you to you the path you should follow.

Place your faith in God and everything else will fall into place.

Be passed over for a blessing :)

Today is about being passed over for a blessing.

While in graduate school, I have interviewed for a huge internship that I was sure would take me to the next level.

I was sure that I had it and then I received news that they had decided to go a different direction. i.e. We don’t want to hire you.

I was crushed and devastated. This was different from experience that I had while in law school.
I know, I know I have been in school forever. . . . :)

I had prayed for this position and God has spoken that I would be fine. So I assumed that God meant that the job was mine :) It is hard to put a positive spin on things when prayed so hard for something that doesn’t come to past.

So I watch in horror despite the fact of being the top female in my class; I became the only one without an internship.

I began to become bitter and frustrated. People told I was being impatient. How could tell them I was frustrated with God since I felt like he told me he would give me that internship?

So I gave up and then an opportunity presented itself. It bigger than I could have dreamed for myself and eventually became first job out of school.

I was paid triple what I would have been paid at the internship that I had prayed for and spent the last year of grad school with the knowledge that I had job waiting after graduation.

The blessed internship: did massive layoffs and didn’t hire any students after graduation. Without God’s will, I would have been in a dead end situation.

There are times in life when it feels like God did not fulfill your requests for a blessing. Hold on.

God told me that I would be fine and I assumed it be what I wanted. Not always.

God told me that I would be fine because he knew had something coming my way. I didn’t know about this opportunity and assumed incorrectly. :)

Stay in race even when don’t understand it. God has big plans for you. Always remember God will never leave you.

Sometimes there is a lapse of time between an disappointment and blessing. Trust in God. Reflect on all the times he showed up before in order to get thru the waiting ahead.

So the bigger the disappointment ; the bigger the payday in the end. Allow God to work his magic even when don’t understand the process.

Trust him. He is like a parent. He knows what is around the corner and wants to protect you.

So on this Sunny Sunday: Pray for his mercy for you to be able weather the storm so you would be able to receive the blessing He worked so hard to bestow.

Being a Believer

Today is about being a believer

Do you remember when you learned how to ride a bicycle? It came in steps.

You first learned to ride your bike with training wheels and then eventually the training wheels came off. Your parent or another older sibling would hold the back of your bicycle and then eventually let go.

Being an believer is similar to that :)

When you first become a believer you slowly stand on God ‘s Word. You are still very impressionable or a little scary.

Then the inevitable happens: your first valley experience or test. This is the equivalent of taking the training wheels off.

You are scared and terrified but ready to move forward very similar to your bicycle riding experience. You eventually weather the storm of life and emerge a stronger person.

During this testing experience is also when God is like the parent behind you holding the back of the bicycle. Eventually you can ride on your own without any assistance.

You will eventually be able believe in God’s will and in yourself.

There are some people who have a high belief in God and but minimum in themselves. You can do all things with God’s help and will. Past problems are not an indication of future failure.
So on this sunny Saturday, never stop believing in the impossible. Your darkest moment is usually your breakthrough. :)

Those who do impossible have one advantage over the rest of world: they refuse to back down and never stop believing. :)

Achieve amazing things : Believe in yourself . Be the Catalyst for Change :)

Are you willing fight for your success?

Today is about are you willing to fight for your success?

A successful person is someone who embodies the following;

The person who is willing to come in early and stay late. While all the others are hanging out and kicking it in the clubs; you are grinding in the office.

The person is who is willing sacrifice huge amount of personal time and life for their craft.

A person with a huge amount of discipline and inner resolve. Resolve that they are more than the circumstances and that they will win.

A person that takes failure as feedback and refuses to back down.

The person who keeps the center aligned : mind, body and spirit . If these spheres are not aligned; you will never be able to achieve success.

The person who allows their innovation to shape the world instead of the world shaping their innovation.

The person who knows that has the ability to completely focus on their goals while keeping the integrity during the process.

A person who is not afraid of being transparent with their life regardless of public perception.

This will make the general public invest in you and your success The person who has one sole focus : expanding their brand. What is their brand: themselves. Always respect the most importance brand in your life: yourself. :)

My goal is to motivate and inspire others. I want to change the general public sees contemporary Christians.

I want to represent the people who is out here grinding with our minds. There are some of us out here.

I send out some much positive energy out to my Tweeps because I want everyone to live up to our potential.

So on this Friday, instead of taking the weekend off. Make this weekend on to grind. Create your own destiny; no one is coming to save you. The only way to make your dreams a reality is to invest yourself.

Remember: The most intelligence don’t win the race; it is the most driven.

There is no shortcuts for hard work. So get Focused and Be the Catalyst for Change :)

Waiting for a Sign from God

Today is about waiting for a sign from God.

Since the beginning of my Christian walk, I have been always a believer in signs.

Lord if think I should do this please knock three times ie send me a sign. . . . ..

I am sure God was laughing at the silliness of items of requesting signs about.

As your grow in your faith, God will lessen the instant blessings. Instant Blessings are when you pray or think about praying for something it happens. Instant Blessings are common place with new Christians.

However, once you grow in your faith, time period between your prayers and blessings increase to the dismay of others.

You have become a master with prayer when you can continue to believe despite evidence of the contrary.

Don’t stop believing that God will bless you just because you haven’t gotten answer or sign.

For those like that are waiting on signs: Stop waiting.

Your Faith is only sign that you need. Keep going on the race of life. God sometimes wants to see your endurance and your faith will illustrate this.

But when faith is a little low; go to God in prayer and he will speak to you. You have to be open to hear his words.

Sometime no answer from God is not “no” but rather “not yet.” Be willing to wait on the Lord.

Prayer is the nourishment that quenches our spiritual thirst. Try it and your life will be forever changes.

Today is about distractions :)

Webster dictionary defines an distraction as something that diverts attention, emotional upset or amusement.

Distractions come in many forms good and bad. But all have one thing in common; that can take you away from goals.

When I am distracted; I don’t feel very positive. I have to push myself to stay in positive realm despite all the chaos around me.

Stay focused your goals and when distractions come your way; deal with one at a time.

But don’t allow them to shift your focus. Evil comes in various forms and its best form is in distractions.

Staying centered and focused is paramount. Keep your eye on the prize and within the God’s will.

Be the Catalyst for Change and prayer for those with allergies :0

Getting the Basics

Today is about getting the basics.

During this training for the Peachtree Road Race; it has become clear getting the basics is necessary. All vanity is out the window.

At first it was a little difficult when you are cutesy girl like myself. I don’t the wind messing up my hair; being sweaty outside. Etc.

Now three months into training, vanity is gone. I will usually run in my lucky Spelman Hat and I have gotten used to running all conditions even in snow.

Training for Peachtree Road race has been humbling because allow me to adjust my behavior and also the vain parts of myself I didn’t know existed.

God gives feedback in various ways. He will take you through situations so you can learn about yourself and adjust your behavior.

Don’t get upset. Accept the feedback and use it as opportunity to grow. Sometimes life has away veering us off track to the point but we must start over and get the basics.

Remember: Getting the basics can be a simple as starting the day with prayer so we allow God to guide your steps.

You may not be what you want to be; you are better than what you were yesterday.

Keep going on the race of life :) Be the Catalyst for Change :)

Refuse to Settle

Happy Easter :) Today is about refusing to settle.

Jesus died for us to live a better life but yet due to all challenges and tribulations we have experienced, we are starting back down and settle.

Don’t. God wants to have the best life and settling is not an option.

Now he did not say you would not have challenges, that you would be lonely; that you wouldn’t cry or buckle underneath all the pressure.

You will have these things but they only endure for short period.

In our present time, a minute can seem like a eternity but yet in God’s time a year could be like a minute. Wait on the Lord.

In the book of Job, it never really details how long he was in his turmoil.

Sometime turmoil is brought on by God to see how really tough you are.

Job did nothing wrong but his peers swore he must have “separated” himself from God ahem.. “sin”.

No one knows your walk but you so don’t allow others to determine your perception and relationship with God.

Stay in the Race of Life and refuse to settle.

If you want to that job, keep plugging on away. Create a matrix (table) of job descriptions and describe some your practical experience to show how you perfect for the job. Do not settle.

If you want that house and you don’t have the credit. Go online and read every credit forum out there. Check the statute of limitations on all debts (7 years) and dispute everything on the credit. Do not pay someone else to do it. You do it and do not settle.

If you want to be married to that special man or woman; invest in the relationship. That means instead of telling someone that you love them show them. Words means nothing without action. Allow the Love of God to permeate through to them. Work on becoming spiritually in sync. Build a legacy together. Legacy can be more than children; it can be a financial empire for all generations. Do not settle.

If you have been dreaming of starting that business; write that business plan and get a micro loan. Get your credit on track. Get advice from These are retired business executives who understand where you are and can provide encourage. Do not settle.

And most importantly protect your dreams and inspiration. People can jealous of your dreams and will speak a spirit of doubt into your situation. Do not settle.

Believe in yourself and your decisions. Do not worry if you don’t experience in that area or feel uncertain. Or in that relationship you have had trouble in past. Believe in new beginnings and trust him. God will give you favor when you aligned in what he ordained for you.

Evil we try to tell you that you are not experienced or allow you to be frustrated in your situation and give up. Do not settle.

So as well celebrate this Easter Sunday, live up to God’s expectations for all of us and not settle for second best.

Difference between Constructive Criticism and Hating

Today is about the difference between constructive criticism and hating.

During this economic downturn, we are rarely hear good news.

So when hear good news; we should rejoice. Wrong! Only if the good news is for you.

When the good news is for someone else, we all can come down with old fashioned case of jealousy. Jealousy is fine it motivates you to strive for more. It is not if you resort to hating.

Constructive criticism is providing feedback on unanticipated aspects of the project/ventures or just being a pragmatic thinker.

Pragmatic thinkers like to see all perspectives of a situation. They just want to make sure you are prepared.

I am creative type; not pragmatic at all. However it is imperative in business to have a pragmatic thinker around.

A Good business operation has enthusiastic creative thinker and pragmatic thinker. Both are equally important.

However someone who is just picking out flaws in a project, a relationship or endeavor without possible recommendations or solutions is hater.

Haters are just jealous and are motivated to bring you down.

Pray for them to take the energy of hating and allow motivate it them to pursue their OWN dreams.

Allow your frustration and jealousy to help you think innovatively as possible.

Celebrate others good news; that means you are next in line for miracle you have been waiting on.

Prayer is the answer to all life’s problems. Be Catalyst for change :)

New Beginings

Today is new beginnings.

A couple of days ago, I had a really spectacular fall while running. It was spectacular because I didn’t see it coming.

I was running and must have tripped on something. Next thing I was on the ground with my legs in front of me. I had fallen into the free newspaper container.

My first thought was “Who saw me” :) Then I scrambled to get up and kept going.
I really surprised that I wasn’t hurt or scratched. Just totally embarrassed :)

My experience was similar to what we all experience on journey of life. We take a spectacular fall ie failure, setback. You were hurt but something you didn’t see coming. You can continue on but you are more embarrassed than anything else.

You must get up and keep going. We are in the time of new beginnings.

Do you believe in them? Do you truly you can start over and begin again? This is critical important to your Faith. God is a forgiving spirit and we should be as well.

Despite all misgivings, we can must learn let go of the past and keep it moving. Stay on the path of Faith.

There many reasons why there is conflict with others. Could be conflicting ideologies, personalities, sensitivity or just bad timing.

Life is just too short to hold grudges or wonder why things happen to you.Even when don’t’ understand the lesson that God is attempting to teach you, keep going. Sometimes God reveals to the truth and lesson in all situations in pieces. So allow time to pass so you understand the breadth of situation.

So allow your disappointments and hurts to fly into the winds of yesterday and begin anew.

Today is about establishing a covenant with God.

When you people hear the term “covenant” people quietly think religious fanatic. But that is really not it all. A covenant with God is just a promise.

A promise that you will be do something that illustrates your faith in God. Its faith in action. It one thing to believe, but quite another to stand on it. :)

Have you ever done something or had something happen and say Lord if you get me out of this situation or if you do this, then I will . . . . . .

In today’s society you don’t hear a lot about covenants. Probably in just regular society it is hard for people to keep their word.

Today, make a covenant with God. Establishing accountability helps to keep you on the path of faith.

I remember when I having a hard time closing on my home, I made a covenant with God that if I closed on my home, then I will always attend Wednesday services and not tell anyone until after I closed . I made that covenant on an Sunday and on that next day, Monday, I got word that closing would be the following Friday.It killed me not to tell anyone, not even my parents but cemented the special bond I have with God. I have been attending Wednesday services regularly for almost 3 years :)

God became actual person and my savior. Not my parents. Up until that point I have been coasting on the faith of my parents.

I now have lots of covenants now with God. I cannot discuss them until the blessings have come to pass.

So during the Easter week, take your relationship with God a step further, make an covenant with God.

You will be amazed what God will can do when show him how you are willing to stand of faith.
Sometimes God is waiting for you to take one big step toward him.

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment. Show discipline in the Doctrine of Faith and see your life expand .
