Don’t be shamed of your story. Share it, learn from it, be stronger from it….you just might inspire others.
We all have *stuff* in our closet……whether it is bad, tragedy, regretful, etc can be anything as well as the happy, smiley, loving, fun stuff too…..
Learn to be transparent, share those moments, share what you have learned from it, see and pray how you can help others…..
It is a part of you, a part of what made you who you are today…..embrace it. Be Youniquely YOU
Some people ask me why I share so much open, some people tell me I shouldn’t….I share what I feel God wants me to, and you know what? I get private messages every single day of people telling me how I have helped them in some sort of way…..you can’t put a price on that feeling…..and if I can help someone, I will definitely keep on doing it
To live by choice, not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be motivated, not manipulated;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not compete.
I choose self esteem, not self pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice,
not the random opinions of others.
I choose to be what God says I can be, not what others may have told me in the past.

“Be prepared to find blessings coming to you from situations and circumstances which may at first appear to be the opposite.
Learn to look for the blessing.”
I have been coaching, training, and speaking at events all over the world the last 15 years. Much moreso the last 6 years. It is amazing the many tragic events that have come thru my life, where I have thought, for a moment, “Why God, Why Me? Why not _____? You picked the wrong person, I am not this strong”…..
And through that, staying close to God, praying and questioning Him *many* times (I promise! I ask, fight, argue, cry, whine! lol All the above!)
Then He will bring something in front of me, someone who needs something, a speaking engagement not for money (sometimes yes, sometimes not), but for spiritual, where I *get the opportunity to* help and be of service to others……
But it is in those moments, not that it makes it all better….
It never does……but He shows me, how, *simply me* can help someone else, and make a difference for good in *their* life. People come to me after, they text me, they private message me, they call me, they hug me, they cry with me, they tell me how they got saved, or grew closer to God……And I realize……*My Why* and why He allowed it.
It don’t take the hurt and pain away, don’t make it perfect…..but it DOES make me feel better, makes me *see* the difference I am being able to make in my *dash* while I am here on this earth.

Relax more, worry less, and live and enjoy the moment.
I am learning to do this more and more all the time.
It is important to HUSTLE and make a difference in the world, do better for yourself and your family.
But it is ALSO just as important, if not more important, to spend TIME (=LOVE) with those you love and build those RELATIONSHIPS, because one day, money or not, those are what you will have.
Build relationships, keep that your focus, friends and family and clients and customers – when that is your focus, the business and the money will just happen……
Those *not there* don’t get it, those that FINALLY gave in, and tried it, and stuck with it – see those blessings.
Learn from those who have done it before you – listen to the wise, don’t listen to those that are not where you want to be – emotionally, spiritually, physically, financially, etc. Follow and listen to the ones that ARE where you want to be, and do what they tell you and what you see them do.
I truly love my life.
I get to wake up every day and work with clients and people and make a difference in the world for better.
I have a wonderful family and wonderful friends.
How did you wake up this morning?
Do you wake up and take five minutes and truly be grateful and thankful for everything in your life….
or does the alarm go off and you get up and rush around and get ready for work or your day or whatever you have to entail…
and forget to take five minutes to be thankful and grateful for the things that you currently have in your life?
Everybody has trials and tribulations in their life.
The good Lord definitely knows that I have had my share of them but I try to focus every day of things that I can be thankful and grateful for.
I truly believe that as we do that we will attract more things in our life to be thankful and grateful for.
