The Paycheck Scenario

On this day, many are blessed to receive a check and many are not due to circumstance. A check has become the staple in the household. With a check, one can not only enjoy the varried necessities, but the estravagant wants we all crave as well. 

A check has many limitations just as it has opportunities.

It's important to understand that if that check is not available due to job layoff, firing, company closing, job transfer, personal disability, illness or any other devestating life altercation, you and your family can be left at the hands and mercy of need. This can be catastrophic on so many levels.

The reality is there are a lot of people who are one paycheck away from being homeless and hungry. 

What would you do if you allowed yourself to be put in that situation? Yes... I said allowed. When you put all your eggs in one basket without being open to other options to keep yourself out of that situation, you allowed it to happen. 

Most get comfortable in their current situation and don't think about the possibility of having to be uncomfortable if something happens.

Do you currently have a savings, retirement and emergency plan that you feel comfortable with if you were put in an uncomfortable situation? 

The truth of the matter is many Americans state they are worse off than they were in previous years. According to a consumer sentiment survey, 40% state that they are living paycheck to paycheck. 39% state they fear losing their jobs. These are some startling numbers that seem to be the same if not worse.

So now that you are aware of these facts, does that change your perception of how important a check is to you and your family? If it does or if it doesn't, the point was to enlighten you. 

Unfortunately, many wait until a situation happens before they react. Then they are often pressured with stress, frustration and possible health issues.

I personally am working on being more proactive versus reactive. This response has afforded me the opportunity to have choice. 

If you are interested in speaking further about the many options to diversify your options and income, connect with me and lets collaborate. I love sharing information and great ideas. 

Well that's all for now. I hope you found this information enlightening and worthy of thinking about.

If you are social, connect with me on Instagram, Periscope & Twitter @NichelleWomack. I would love to meet you. 

Toodles... and happy weekend! Do something worth remembering. 

Blessings,

5 Obstacles That May Be Blocking Your Success

family-619570_1280.jpg

Most obstacles that confront us deal with fear, confusion, lack of knowledge, not enough money or negative self-talk. No matter what you do, obstacles will find you and attempt to block your success. It's important to understand that you have more authority over the situation than you think. Your thought process and how you react to the situation will enable you to be proactive versus reactive and achieve your goals in spite of. These 5 steps will serve as a reminder that when obstacles appear because they will, not only will you be prepared, you will persevere. 1. Rejection - this is a situation most of us have faced. It tends to hurt and make us feel incompetent in what it is we are trying to pursue. However, if you view rejection as a possibility of opportunity and a learning experience for growth, you will be less reluctant to allow rejection to hold you back.

2. Inadequacy - the feeling of not being as good as others can be a severe obstacle in achieving success. Understand that we all have different gifts and skills that make us unique and one of a kind. There is no need to compare yourself to others. Do what you know how to do and be willing to learn more. Strategically separate yourself from others and learn to competent in what you bring to the table.

chain-1027864_1920

3. Assumption - We assume that things are the same and typically we already have it figured out how it will end. Therefore you change nothing but expect different results. This is the definition of insanity with a super sense of hyper exaggeration. Be willing to get help and seek a new perspective.

pin-board-978197_1280

4. Perfection - Many struggle with it everyday and it is a true reality. In fact, it is the life support of many failed dreams. As long as you seek things to be perfect, you will never get anything accomplished. Instead of perfection, strive for progress and determination. You will find that your results become focused and your ability to complete a task becomes real.

board-786119_1920

5. Security - Most people rely on the security of one thing or another in order to get them through. Security is something that is not assured. Therefore, instead of growing dependent, become independent in yourself and your skills. Nothing is guaranteed but life and death. Find strategies and solutions that will allow you to not only survive but thrive when things seem bleak.

10 Quotes to Motivate You During Challenging Times

stress-pic.jpg
Challenges are like climbing a hill and never reaching the top. As a young child growing up, when I was feeling down my grandmother would always say “catch yourself.” Her meaning behind that quote was to never let yourself go so far that you aren't able to rebound. When you are going through difficult times, no matter what anyone says, it’s hard to feel confident in yourself. Sustaining your thoughts and emotions with positive, encouraging words helps you to realize that you are not along in your struggle. Knowing other’s have walked the same path of uncertainty gives affirmation that trouble does not last always. Listed below are 10 quotes that have inspired many, even myself. Stay encouraged! Don't leave the game until you have won.

1. “Champions are not made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them, a desire, a dream and a vision.” Muhammad Ali

2. “Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven’t half the strength you think they have.” Norman Vincent Peale

3. “Take heed: you do not find what you do not seek.” English Proverb

4. “Our lives improve only when we take chances and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.” Walter Anderson

5. “Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers, you cannot be successful or happy.” Norman Vincent Peale.

6. “It’s the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top.” Robert M. Pirsig

7. “Failure is just a rehearsal. Success is the main event.” Author Unknown

8. Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” Harriet Beecher Stowe

9. “It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.” Theodore Roosevelt

10. “Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.” Napolean Hill

I hope these quotes give you encouragement to know that anything is possible if you believe. When you are having one of those days, choose an affirmation that motivates you to keep going and surround yourself with positive people who want to see you do well.

When Your Passion is Your Determination

Before I realized what I enjoyed, I was just a part of a system. My fear of stepping off the cliff into deeper territory always came with rejection, self-doubt and confusion.There is also a risk of uncertainty. Nevertheless, I decided that if I wanted to live in my purpose, that risk was worth taking. What am I here for and what will it take for me gain clarity? Those who have never risked anything have never done anything. In my journey, I have realized that the real risk is doing nothing. In taking that risk, I've learned the following things.

1. You have no problem working overtime.  When you enjoy what you do, time is not an issue nor a worry. You take pride in what you do and you work until the task is completed. No exceptions!

2. You are constantly seeking ways to make it better. Unfortunately, when you are passionate about something, you may run into perfection. This perfection can hold you back from many things. I have found when I don't commit to perfection, not only do I get more done, but I accomplish more towards my goals.

3. You get up early and go to bed late. Again, time is of the essence for you to accomplish your goals. Therefore, neglecting of oneself may take place. It's important to keep your health in check because if your heatlh isn't right, your passion may never get accomplished. Sleep is essential to success. Yet, those who live in their passion find early mornings and late nights a normal way of life and their body and life adjust to it..

4. You don't mind being corrected or misunderstood. When you are passionate about something, it will take over your life. Therefore, it's important to find balance in what you do. If given advice, it must be looked at objectively and subjectively. Is it best for you or will it deter your plans towards your goal? People always misunderstand what they are not familiar with. You personally must be clear on what it is you are attempting to achieve and why.

5. You are willing to let everything that attempts to hold you back go. You are focused on your goals and accomplishments. Everything that is going on around you isn't important unless it involves you working in your passion. Hanging out use to be your lifestyle. Now you see a greater vision that can't be separated by nonsense. A lack of focus no longer exist. If it doesn't improve you mentally, doesn't uplift you spiritually or help you make more money, you literally find no need to be involved.

The evolution of change and divine order always has a purpose in our life. Whether we pay attention to the instructions or not, somehow it will haunt us unconditionally until we take notice. When you are determined to achieve and your passion gives you energy, stay focused and press on.

I am Nichelle Womack, your life transition, and business strategist. I aim to make you think through your thoughts, live without excuses and create a life filled with happiness, success, and financial reward.

A Non-Negotiable Freedom

 

Everyone is not for you and you are not for everybody. At some point in your life you grow up, grow apart and you become your own person. Yet, those who care stay around and those who don't really didn't care at all.

The cool thing about being free is we all have choices and we make them every day. You can choose to stay with people for comfort or you can choose to go where you can grow. Freedom takes you out of your comfort zone and shows you a different world that only you can imagine. Freedom also comes with a cost. You will be judged, talked about, hated, misunderstood and predicted for doom.

Slash Cable or Satellite Bill in Half

But in the end, the only thing that matters is you were free to do you and be you and that is the most valuable form of freedom there is. As Harriett Tubman once said, "I would have freed thousands more if only they knew they were slaves." Don't be enslaved into the ideas of others because they can't accept the Freedom you live. #RealTalkDialogue

The Missing "Link" to YOUR Success

Is there a magic formula to success? Is it trial and era? Is it the pull of a lucky straw and waaalaaa... Everything you want is granted to you. Most successful people will tell you that it took and takes long hours, tears and sweat in order to reach the level of success you desire.

Whether it's spending years in school to acquire the knowledge or years in the workplace getting the hands on experience, your success is completely dependent on your desires and expectations.

How to Improve the POWER of You!

 

On a daily basis individuals are searching for secrets to health, wealth and happiness. In this search, they neglect key indicators that could be the stumbling blocks to success. Most don’t understand the simple aspect of recognizing who they are and what contributions they can make at improving their own personal life. It’s not a secret, but the catch many are missing is understanding self. Once this is understood, you would then have the knowledge to be both successful in personal and business relationships. Like everything leading to success, this begins with a plan.  Whether you’re anticipating improving your relationship with your spouse or family member, or move up the corporate ladder, this is all a result of personal growth. Individual growth starts with doing your best at every moment, in your career, home, or daily activities. Setting goals, no matter how small, enables you to soar to new heights and give you the confidence to accomplish more.

Many times, individuals stay hung up on other people’s expectations on what it is to be successful without factoring in their wants and desires.  Each of us has another idea of what makes us content.  It's important to acknowledge that if you spend most of your time and effort trying to reach another person’s goals, then you will find yourself perpetually searching for your life meaning and you will continue to be distressed.  Recognizing what is important is the first step to improving your personal life.

Balance is a key factor to a successful life. Some individuals don't see the concept of success beyond their own needs.  Frequently we're caught up in serving a dominant function, which overshadows our natural strengths. This results in stress and imbalance in your life. Learning to do things for yourself and your own needs are vital to improving your personal life. If you're always doing for others and seldom take time out for you, then you're building stress rather than improving your life. Your happiness should come first. It’s quite difficult to make others happy if you are unhappy yourself. Finding it hard to say no to others becomes more common and you will find yourself so engulfed by the needs of others, you forget you have needs too. This is a common human trait. You must learn to have an even balance in your life with everything you do and center on what you want. It’s not selfish, but necessary to live a stress free, purpose filled life.

Putting yourself down consistently, finding it hard to accept compliments and wishing you were someone else are simple examples that you may be sabotaging your life into depression. Encouraging positive self-talk with yourself and to other people, not speaking negative about yourself and other people are vital to establishing personal self-pride. Understanding that no matter what, you're ok with you. Improving your self-confidence is extremely important when improving your personal life. This will require putting your positive beliefs in perspective and making it a priority. Day after day you must work on removing the negative thoughts and the limiting self-beliefs you have grown accustomed to hearing. Believing in you is medicine to your soul and the cure you need to succeed.

Surround yourself with encouraging and motivating people. Discouraging people have an opposite agenda of what you need in your life and you must recognize who they are immediately. By taking small steps to do these things, you will begin improving your personal life without even realizing it. The key to success is to be constantly moving toward and forward in your goals. Learn steps to move ahead, stop looking back and refuse to be a victim of your past. Even though the past is important, you want to avoid lingering over past mistakes. Your mistakes should be learning tools and stepping stones towards your constant progress. Use them, learn from them and move ahead without hesitation.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?" Marianne Williamson

 

In essence, when you surround yourself with positive influences, it helps you to gain the power of processing and focusing in on your life. You deserve to have control. Don’t allow others to define your existence or claim your life’s purpose. Work hard on being a better, in control you in all you do. Some people will come and others will go. Nevertheless, understand who you are and don’t give anyone authority to define you in any of life’s capacity without your authorization. People can’t make you feel bad unless you give them permission.

The Traits of a Successful Mindset

"I truly believe in positive synergy, that your positive mindset gives you a more hopeful outlook, and belief that you can do something great means you will do something great."  Russell Wilson

 

In order to achieve success in business, relationships and life, you will need to have the right mindset.

Success is something that everyone wants to achieve, but many don’t put in the work. The simple process of achieving success involves you starting, focusing, showing up, committing and making it happen.

Most people simply do not know how powerful their minds are and how it can be the determining factor behind them attaining the success they desire.

“Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making thesame one a second time.” – George Bernard Shaw

A lot of people have failed simply because their minds were never in the right place. A lack of success could be a lack of incorporating these 5 principles in your life.

Determination

A true fact is that successful people are simply more determined than those who are not. This is a trait that is seen in every person that is successful in their given field. Their desire to be better than they were yesterday and the perception that it is their responsibility to attain the success that they envision.

Relaxed Despite Adversity

If you are a business owner, you have most likely dealt with a lot of problems. The way that you deal with this adversity will shape who you are as a person and as a business person. It is evident through their resilience of struggle. Successful people don’t complain and if they do, they come at it with a plan.

If you are able to stay relaxed despite adversity, you will be able to become more successful in your endeavors.

Knowledge

Successful people are simply smarter. This is not just speaking about grades in school, but in life in general. Their knowledge with everyday things and common sense is very important and you will need to understand just how important it is to have a lot of knowledge and be willing to acquire it. Successful people know what they can and can’t do.  For those things they can’t do, successful people are smart enough to hire someone who can do it. It is how they think and how they are wired to be successful.

Invest

Successful people are not afraid to invest in themselves. Whether it is for training, practicing or something that will help with their success, successful people will simply invest in their success on a regular basis. They realize that they are their greatest wealth. Successful people acknowledge that investing in themselves is the only way they will achieve their desired goals and objectives. By investing in themselves and others, successful people find another way to be successful on a regular basis.

No fear of failure

Failure is an obstacle for many. But not for successful people. If you have no fear of failure, then you will be motivated to see success clearer. Once you are able to rid your mind from the fear of failure, you will be redirect your actions towards achieving success. Successful people live life with risk and are not afraid to make a mistake. They can also care less what others say about what they do. Fear is their friend because the more they are afraid to do it, the more they are ready to do it at the drop of a hat. It is their fuel and their energy to fear what’s next. The unknown has no existence in their plan.

“Action is the foundational key to all success.” – Pablo Picasso

I can go on and on. The truth about successful people is that they are the CEO’s, the owners, the movers and the shakers of the economy, the school system and the community. They are the ones you want in your life and in your corner. Successful people make the impossible seem so possible. They are prepared to make a difference where there has always been a constant. Change is a part of their vocabulary. Successful people are action takers and problem solvers.

These are just some of the traits that successful people have and you too can have them as well.  Your decision to step out of the box and do what you desire is a decision between you and success. Just as long as you are patient and you try to incorporate these traits into your life on a daily basis, you, YES YOU, will be able to succeed in any aspect of your life.

Here's PROOF! Your Wealth is in YOUR Hands

Most don't understand the system of money creation. It's deeper than what most think. Society tells us one thing, religion tells us another and a philosophical perspective convinces us that it's too confusing. This episode will give you documented proof as to your desires regarding wealth. You can either believe it or not. The choice is yours.

4 Types of Human Hunger

“Making money isn't hard in itself,what's hard is to earn itdoing something worth devoting your life to” ― Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Thought of the day...

A question on the panel in #PlentifulLiving101. There are 4 types of hunger where people are striving to be fed.

1. Money - people need more of it. Something is always due or overdue. You fake the funk and rob Peter to pay Paul then go about it as if nothing is wrong with your right. You live in a fantasy because reality is too scary for sight.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. –Benjamin Franklin

2. Time - not enough of it exist. Work 8 hours to come home and prepare for tomorrow. You're too tired to do anything else but complain you don't have time. Waiting for Friday to eventually realize that it's Monday already and you're back to the same routine.

TIme quote 3. Security - nothing is guaranteed but life and death. I hate to inform you, but that good job isn't either. Don't be fooled and retire with just a pen. You better hope your 401K is still in tact. You should be accountable to you and everything else should be secondary. It ain't like it used to be and if it was, don't you want to be FREE.

“If a company won't hire you, why don't you start your own company? Steve Jobs created jobs, he didn't apply for them. #Startup your dreams.” Jarod Kintz

Dave Ramsey Quote 4. Spirituality - without it, people are misguided, mislead, misdirected and confused. They focus on external connections versus internal. When spirituality approaches them, they take credit for them being relieved for all of the problems above. Nothing can be done without a great relationship with the supplier. For HE provides a way to get through and be open to something new.

“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love, Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive, It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.” ― Francis of Assisi

 

Nevertheless, the combination of money, time, security and spirituality can cause one to think long and hard or just continue going about their daily routine of existing and not living. All are needed to survive and thrive. At some point, one must have a conversation with self. Be real!! If there is lack, increase won't take place until you take action and move in a different direction in one or all areas of your life. Is it time to get busy?

Choosing a Mate That is Right for You

Don't forget to LOVE yourself..

Finding someone to share your life with can be a challenge. Often times we look in all the wrong places and eventually get stuck with leftovers or trash that is difficult to be disposed of. Love and relationships are two different things. You must ask yourself, which one do you want. In choosing, make certain that you have the time that is needed to invest in what it is you want. Before you can give of yourself, make certain you are confident in what it is you’re expecting and what it is you want to receive. Have some type of idea of the relationship you are looking for because this is the first step of valuing your time and that of others. Are you seeking a casual companion, a weekend lover or someone to spend the rest of your life with? Develop an idea of what you would call a great mate. While some might say that this limits your choices way too much, it's possible to both know what you're looking for and be open to something else.

Love pic1 The most tangible aspect is that you don’t have to settle. The secret sauce in finding a companion is in putting together a list of characteristics of your ideal mate and how you think about that list once you develop it. If you see every characteristic on it as absolutely necessary, you might miss out on meeting a wonderful person. After all, no one is perfect, but someone is perfect for you. If, on the other hand, you see your list as a set of guidelines, having it can help you choose the relationships you do and do not want to pursue. This is critical because far too many people are in a hurry to find a mate without vetting them out. This behavior could lead to all sorts of unhappiness, regret and a possible disaster. Being specific with intention can be beneficial in the long run.

Love make the world go round..

When seeking a relationship, it’s important to identify what you deem as necessary and unnecessary characteristics in a mate. Begin gathering your list by thinking back over past relationships, whether they were romantic in nature or not. Were any fulfilling? Are there any characteristics that other people have that make life incredibly difficult for you? I mean… things that would make you miserable to be around. Or better yet, things that you simply cannot tolerate. In contrast, are there any characteristics that you find absolutely necessary in someone you're going to be close to? Things that make your heart flutter, your mind think and your life better. Now think about some attributes and aspects you would appreciate or admire in a potential new mate. These should be things that make you feel good and enjoy being around this person. Use these components to help get you started, both in making a list of things you want in a mate and in making another one of things that you don't want and refuse to deal with. Anything that comes up in these thought exercises is probably pretty important to you and might even make or break a future relationship. So think long and careful about this process.

Love is bigger than one second, one hour and one day..

Just as you list the necessary and unnecessary components, you must acknowledge the desirable and undesirable characteristics too. After you have your lists of necessary and unnecessary characteristics, think about other aspects of people you've known that you have enjoyed or that have been hard for you to deal with. These may not be quite as important as the things you just listed, but they are aspects of another person that would be nice to have or to simply avoid. You may want to make these into a separate category on your list. That way, you can separate them in your mind from things that are absolutely necessary or to be avoided. Again, thinking long and hard while being aware and conscientious are key to successfully choosing the right mate.

Your CHOICE can make or break you...

You deserve to be picky. But how picky do you deserve to be. For me, being picky is a big deal. Just as I am careful in planning out other events in my life, I will be just as careful in trying to choose someone who is worthy of my time. After all, choice is a personal decision and it can also be a life-long one as well. Now that you have your list in front of you, it's up to you to decide how closely you want to stick with it. Again, it’s your choice! Are the characteristics on the list important enough to you that any perfect mate would have to have all of them? On the other hand, are some of them absolutely essential and others you can live with or without? Know that you are free to make whatever choice you want to in this area. This is your life and you should have a say so. This is your relationship you're considering, so the choices need to be suited to your own preferences and perspectives. In case you are not prepared, remember that choosing to be picky might mean that it is harder to find a mate. No matter how many of these characteristics he or she has, there will still be areas of your relationship that could be difficult in other areas. Relationships should grow. In that process, both of you will change. It is with great hopes that your intentions are to grow together and help each other along the way.

Let me count the ways that I LOVE you...

So, once you've made this decision, don't let anyone persuade you otherwise to sway a different way. As I mentioned, this is your life and you will be the one that has to deal with the consequences of poor choice. No matter how good looking a perfect mate may be, what they drive, their occupation and what they tell you, if they don't have the characteristics you've deemed essential, the relationship probably isn't going to last long. In addition, don't allow friends or family to persuade your decision making towards your ideal mate. Who you date and how you choose them is your choice, not anyone else's. We all have different taste and our personal taste won't be the same as anyone else's. Therefore, relying on their advice and judgement simply will not work. You need to trust your own instincts, needs, desires and preferences when deciding on a mate to add to your life.

Love pic 2 Love is a two-way street. Both parties are supposed to be giving of each other. Even though no relationship is perfect, there is one that is perfect for you. Be fair with yourself and the other person. Know that a relationship or a love that lasts is built on a solid foundation. When a piece of it cracks, both must be willing, ready and able to glue it back together. Love is a beautiful thing. Don’t settle just because you are lonely. Pray about what you are seeking and let the love you are requesting find you.

When LOVE finds you, it's a beautiful thing...

4 Assets That Require an Investment

"If you count all your assets you always show a profit."

Wilson Mizner

Wise investments pay hefty dividends. Knowing where to place your resources enable you to have more control over your market and have less fear in its volatility. In life, we have more control over things than not. Depending on priorities, we decide which if any, gets attention. Therefore, the decision to be proactive and invest versus reactive and guessing, can enable you to live a more profitable life.

1. Relationships - great connections with people allow you to excel in life. They hold you up when you are down and lift you up as you continue to rise. It nurtures your confidence to have good ones. Good relationships give long life and bad ones can cause disease. Examine who is good for you and who is not. Put each in its perspective and place. Don't give in to dropping stock, invest in long-term growth. People who are by your side and tell you when you are right and wrong have proven to be great finds.

It imprisons you to medication and ultimately affects your entire portfolio and limits your growth. Great investments in eating healthier foods, cutting back on things you know you shouldn't have and letting go of things that exploit your vessel will optimize your performance across the board. What you eat, you become. Incorporate balance in your diet, exercise, think great thoughts and love the body you are in.

Health quotes 3. Spirituality - This gives you balance, power and authority. It builds confidence in you and gratefulness in your gifts. It provides fulfillment to hopes and wishes. When you can call on or go to something that is bigger than you, it gives you peace and security to know that things will not only get better, but that you will be alright. Spirituality gives confirmation that greater is HE that is in you than he that is in this world. You not only handle conflict and misfortunes better, you face the battle with understanding that it's not yours.

spirituality quote 4. Income - It's a survival mechanism, a tool for stability and advancement as well as a means to be a blessing to others. Without it, hardship exist. The more you know about it and how to grow it, the more you will acquire. Income has no limits when strategically planned out. In most instances, you are in control of how many zero's you add to your life.

You are the primary beneficiary to a life full of wealth, including great relationships, excellent health, strong spirituality and increased income. These are your assets that can prove valuable trifold. Your decisions can make or break you in these instances. What you place priority on and give attention to grows exponentially with great investments.

5 Tips to Remain Focused Everyday

Stay Focused0 Seeking strength in a greater source allows you to live life with purpose. Stay away from dream thieves and naysayers. Open your mind to what could be and what is. Everything you need to be happy is inside of you. Listed below are five tips to steer you in your lane of success. Remain focused, dream it, believe it and aim to achieve it.

1. Wake up every day with a true purpose. What do you plan to do today? What do you need to accomplish it? How close will you be towards achieving your goals? Having direction in your life gives you stability. There is no time to sit around and wait for something to happen. You take the first step and make it happen.

 

2. Love yourself first. If you don’t love you, how do you expect others to give you the respect you deserve? You should set the example as to how you want people to treat you. Expect the best and forget the rest. If you expect less, you will get less. Give yourself a hug. Try it! It makes you feel so much better and it gives you instant love.

 

3. Speak what you want into existence. The tongue has been called the greatest weapon. It can commit a blessing or a curse. It literally has the ability to destroy others you speak to and those who speak to you. Be contentious of what you say. If you believe it, make it happen by saying it. The more you say it, you begin to feel it and the universe has a way of bringing it to reality. Only allow positive language to enter your ears.

 

4. Develop a “I can and will attitude.” Work hard every day to make your dreams a reality. You are the captain of your ship. If it sinks, it’s because you allowed it to happen. Don’t let anyone steer you in the wrong direction. Take control and lead it all the way.

 

5. Seek and work with a mentor. Mentors are good for so many reasons. Everyone needs someone in their life who is dependable, honest and supportive even during mistakes. This person should know your goals and attempt to help you achieve them. Make certain this person is willing to be there every step of the way, good and bad.

 

"Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds."

-Orison Swett Marden

I've learned to have a great day regardless of what and who I encounter. The world is filled with critics/haters who find wrong in everything you do. In fact, their goal in life is to make certain you fail and never recover. People are so quick to point out your faults while they ignore theirs. Ignore ignorance and stay focused on what makes you happy. You are entitled to live your life the way you please. Be encouraged!! Many blessings and much success!!
