When You Let Go and Just Be

Sooooo... for so long I struggled with a fear of heights. I wouldn't go near anything that was too high for me to jump, grab hold to or control.  Today I realeased that fear and did something that took my breath away. Look at what I would have missed if I had allowed my fear to control me. This changed my life forever and made me aware that I control my fear. Once you understand that, you can do anything, but fail. 

God gives us each the ability to soar in any and everything. We doubt ourselves which limits our growth. As of this day, my fear from heights has been reduced. I no longer will allow fear to keep me from living life free and to experience what once held me back. 

I challenge you to try something that freightens you. Make goals and keep them. Today is a great day to start.  Until next time, blessings and peace unto you.

Beware: Keep a Green Life

When I was younger I loved watching Popeye the Sailor man. He was my hero. Not only was he strong, he also loved Olive Oyl. 

Just like Olive Oyl, I was skinny. I didn't eat anything green as I thought all of it was gross. Besides, who thought of health back then. I was a picky eater. I ate the same foods with no variety. Chicken was and still is my favorite. Nevertheless, I had to eat whatever was cooked regardless of being picky or not. It was not an option in my house.

As an adult, I choose what I want to eat with options.  And of course I now pay attention to being healthy. I watch, I read, I listen and I adhere to how important it is to keep it green in your life. 

Today I live green. It is a daily part of my diet. Even if I don't like it, I make myself eat it because of the health benefits of green.

Popeye had spinach to be strong. Today nutritionist state not only will you be strong, but you will help fight disease by eating spinach because it is full of antioxidants. 

Spinach can be eaten raw or cooked. More vitamins are preserved if eaten raw. I often put spinach in smoothies, on sandwiches and in my veggie dishes. Anyway you eat it or drink it, you can't go wrong.

Being a #purposedwoman requires you to take care of yourself first. As we know it to be true, women take care of everyone as well and sometimes before themselves.

So here's to a healthy lifestyle and healthy eating. May we prosper in a life full of green.

Blessings and happy living to you..

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.

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

Blessings,

5 Types of People You Need on a Winning Team

Is a Business Coach Right for me?

Most business owners have begun the year with focus and direction as it relates to earning a profit, building the brand and seeking new clients to add to their portfolio. It is not uncommon to seek assistance along the way. In fact, most successful business owners seek guidance throughout the year as it relates to their business. Consulting is a necessary component that allows a business owner to understand what they may not see through the eyes of another. In order for a business to remain competitive, it must always be on the cutting edge of change. Listed below are four areas of how a coach can help you grow and expand your business.

1. Business Growth - If you are not growing, you are staggering alone in business which can eventually begin to eat at your profits, your time and your patience. Hiring a coach can give you perspective on what's working and what is not.

2. Expansion of your network - The more people you know who can add value to your network, the more access you will have to what's going on in your industry. Business is purely a social activity that constantly requires you to be in front of others via in person, online or through word of mouth. A coach can assist you with becoming more visible in the community as well as providing new partnerships with others.

3. Mentoring experience - Since business is constantly changing, it's important to be aware of how your business can not only be impactful but offer alternatives while the market is changing. A coach can give you advice as well as new ideas based on what they are seeing working.

4. A Confidant - When you need someone to talk to and you are highly frustrated by everything, a coach can be that extra ear, that pounding board, a sounding board as well as the friend in the trenches. Every successful leader should have someone they can rely on in a time of need. A coach can be that and more.

Overall, in order to run an effective, thriving business, it's essential to have a team to help you accomplish your goals. The more people you have for you, the more you can concentrate on building and developing your business.

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.

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.

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.

5 Strategies to Use Unemployment to Gain New Opportunities

looking-for-a-job.jpg
 

 

I don't pity any man who does hard work worth doing. I admire him. I pity the creature who does not work, at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being. -Theodore Roosevelt

Often times I hear people who are unemployed becoming depressed and eventually they give up when the job search is going a little slow. Even though things may not be happening as fast as you like, do something different to get the results you want and expect. Unemployment or being without income is never a good state for anyone to be in. After all, the bills don’t stop and will keep coming. You need money to live and do thing the things you so desire. Nevertheless, it’s not the end of the world. Use this hiatus to develop a better you. In the interim, you may be surprised of what you run across. It may be a blessing in disguise that your employer decided to cut ties.

  1. Volunteer – This opportunity can allow you to make some connections, diversify your skills, give back and learn something new. Volunteering is not only a feel-good aspect, it can shine light on your circumstances during a possible dark time. Not only will you feel good about giving back, you never know who you may run into. Someone may notice your skills and offer you a job. Most nonprofits and some for profit organizations need extra help because they are strapped for cash. Your efforts can not only be a blessing for them but you too. This can also be a filter for eliminating job gaps. 
  2. Start a home based business – Prospective employers love to see you use your time wisely. Not only will you earn extra income, you will be creating skills that could possibly aid in you obtaining that new gig. Look for an opportunity that aligns with what you were accustomed to doing or step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Attempting this endeavor can go in so many creative directions. It can enable you to keep your skills up to date and it can also possibly free you from ever depending on an employer ever again. It solely depends on how you look at it and what you do to make it work. Most people who start a home based business are so excited about the freedom, looking for a job becomes a thing of the past. Even if you happen to find a job, that extra income can be used to help you clear and become debt free. This too can be a filler for eliminating job gaps. Need some home-based business ideas? Contact me...  
  3. Go out and network!! – You can’t be seen at home behind your computer and sending out resumes. Everyone else is doing that too. Be different and set the pace! Have you ever heard the quote, “your net worth is tied to your network?” Go to lunch with an old or meet a new friend. Join a new organization. Go where working people are. Talk to them and make them aware you are seeking a new opportunity. Share your resume and engage in their talk. You never know who knows who. After all, that’s what the new work force looks like. Somebody who knew someone else. Each one help one and as a nation, we will succeed!       
  4. Read a book or several books – Reading is not only fundamental, it can enlighten you to new possibilities. It is through books that we learn new skills and think new thoughts. Find a book that is not only interesting, but one that delivers motivation to help you build upon your current skills or develop new ones. Skills are what makes us marketable. For starters, check out mine to give you a jump start with the process. There are tons of self-help as well as educational books on the market that offer the desire to create a new life for yourself.    
  5. Travel – Well you may say, “I’m unemployed and I don’t have the money or any to spare for that nature.” Take a risk and spend the minimum just to get out of your current environment which may not be offering results. This is a perfect time to do what you always wanted to do. Especially since you are reporting to you at this present time. In this travel, you will hopefully be renewed, given a little optimization, be able to focus in on what it is you really want and you never know, you may find a job in that new city and meet new connections. A vacation is always good to rejuvenate the mind and quantify what’s important in life.  

These 5 tips can not only create, they can provide what may have been missing in your life in the first place. When we are comfortable, the things outside the box often fall by the waist side. I have been on both sides of life, unemployed and employed. I can honestly say, when I was unemployed I had less time than I had when I was employed. If you use your time wisely and make every second count, you will realize that life is all about experiences and it’s up to you to create them.
