Two Crucial Steps To Close The Year Out Strong!

Happy Labor Day!

Summer is coming to an end.

This has been a whirlwind of a year emotionally. I was listening to a podcast and the speaker referred to year 2020 as the “sacred pause”. Hmmmmmm, did you pause this year?

Covid brought the entire world to a halt. Businesses, schools, employment, social life immediately came to an end. We were forced to slow down, reflect and be intentional. There was time for relationships, time for communication, time for family, time to grow your business, time to workout, time to grow spiritually and more.

I believe everyone experienced some sort of a sacred pause (even if they didn’t want to) because these past months created a lot of time and opportunity for reflection and soul searching.

What changed for you as a result of the pause?

Now what’s next? How can we bounce back and still remain productive this year?

As we close out this quarter and begin to close out 2020 there are “2” very important things that you should focus on end the year strong:

  1. Practice gratitude daily- think about how fast the world shut down in a blink of an eye. Think about where you are now and practice gratitude. In every obstacle or situation something always comes out of it. What is it for you? Be grateful! Speak it! Write it! Share it!
  2. Stop 🛑 procrastinating! – we lost a legendary actor “T-Challa”, “ Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman amongst many others lives this year. Chadwick silently battled cancer for 4 years since the Black Panther movie and continued to make movies, appearances etc. What is holding you back? What would you do if you knew you only had the next 4 years to live. What would you fight to accomplish? What relationships would you mend? What would you launch?

Practicing gratitude and constantly staying in action will not only help you to focus on what matters but will ensure you stay productive and no longer just “busy”.

Make it a safe yet fun Labor Day!

Three Strategies To Advance to the Next Level in Your Career or Business.

This clearly has been a difficult time for most during the last 5 months dealing with Covid-19, losses of family and friends, close ones losing jobs etc. It has truly been a trying time. Most of you know that I am a Registered Nurse by trade, still working as a leader in the hospital setting during this pandemic. I am grateful to GOD for having a job during these trying times. I could complain about having to go to work every day and possibly getting  to be exposed to the virus or staying at home without an income, so I pick my battles.

A great thing occurred in the midst of the pandemic, I received a promotion to a Director role in Nursing. Look at God! One thing I know for sure is that being confident in what my gifts are and knowing my worth-what I bring to the table, attributed to me receiving this promotion.

Once you are clear about who you are, what you offer and what your gifts are, you can speak to the results you bring, cast the vision for others to see and  build followers to help you to achieve it.

So, here are the three strategies you will need to know and do in order to advance to the next level in your career or business .

  1. What Do You Offer?: The first thing you have to do is be crystal clear on what you can offer . What do you bring to the table ? I know my gift is administration and leadership. I am also a Shepherd and I help to move people in one accord, I help the lost. With these gifts I pour into others to achieve one common goal.  I would recommend that you search online and  take a spiritual gifts test so that you can clearly know what your gifts are and how you can apply it to your profession or business. This way you are aware of you strengths and what areas you can exceed in.
  • What Do You Want? : The second thing you must to be clear on is what do you want? If you want a promotion and that advancement to the next level, you have to be clear on exactly what it is that you want. This will help you to decipher from the things you do not want . Clarity is everything for the next level and for any advancement, or accomplishment.  You must be  certain not to muddy the waters with too much activities that will keep you busy and not productive, therefore hindering you from reaching your next level. Get Clear!!
  • Will You Work For It? : Finally, you have to be willing to work for it. Work hard like it depends on you but knowing that this is something you are destined for by God. You deserve it! Plus, if this opportunity was not for you how could you ever envision it.  Once you can see it, you can achieve it, so you have to believe that this is for you . If God has clearly planted the vision within you then you must know that it’s within your reach, so you have to work for it and know that this is for YOU!

Think about these three things knowing your gifts , being clear about what you want , and working hard towards it and think about how you can apply these three strategies in your career or business to advance to the next level .

P.S. Would love to hear from you…. What are some topics you would like me to touch on? I’m looking forward to your response.

The One Thing I Learned During This Pandemic.

It certainly has been one heck of a year. We are currently in July with less than 6 months to go in 2020 and it has been quite eventful.

One thing I can say for sure is that the pandemic and the recent events with George Floyd and many others have really provided an opportunity for the world to be still and open our eyes to see what’s really going on around us.

The pandemic has certainly slowed me down and re-shifted my focus. It made me really think about the things that are truly important like prayer and time with family. As a front-line worker I surely had to pray for my safety and that of my family multiple times a day.

Although I was still busy with work, I actually spoke with more people over the phone, connected with folks more than ever, and had more family time. I mean the hustle and bustle stopped! 🛑

Vanity certainly went out the window for me along with many others with the closing of barbershops, beauty salons, nail salons, gyms etc. and my husband became a gourmet chef.

These enduring times really helped me to realize one thing and one thing for sure, there are a lot of things I can truly do without that I thought I needed and what I thought I didn’t need or didn’t have time for I truly did need.

What about you?

What is the one thing you learned during this pandemic?

Hit reply and share with me. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Next week I will share more about how being clear on my gifts and talents made room for a promotion during the pandemic.

Stay Healthy & Safe

New Month, New Game plan!

November Goals

Happy November!

It’s a New Month!

My favorite season is fall and it’s a great opportunity to shed some things and make some changes. 🍁 .

I struggled the last quarter with my time management. I realized that in order to ensure that I finish this quarter strong and have great momentum heading into the New Year, that It will take me changing some habits and creating new ones.

I made up my mind that today will be my New Year.

This is the perfect time to start over.

Ain’t nothing like a good ol’ reset!

One thing you can do to start the process of a reset is to take a day to disconnect from social media. Use this time to really be intentional about  meditating and listening for your next moves. Often times the different things we see on social media tend to cloud our vision and create confusion. We start to think we should be doing what others are doing. This is one  great way to reset and get clarity.

As seasons change understand that there are also seasons in your relationships, business, ministry, career etc.

For this season, you are embarking on something new. Make the change, shed and say NO to some things,  reset and adjust your clock ⏰ this season.

It will be your best ever. . . . .

Until Next Time 💋

How To Overcome Self Doubt In 2 Simple Steps.

Doubts’ ultimate goal is to stop you in your tracks and prevent you from even getting started.

Doubt tricks you into making excuses and believing, you are not worthy, you’re not good enough, you don’t know enough , you don’t have enough, it’s too expensive etc. I certainly have experienced many of these feelings at various stages of my life especially as I embarked upon new challenges. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ultimately, I found that there were 2 simple things that I had to do in order to overcome my limiting beliefs and self doubts and they were:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  1. Reflect on all my past wins, what they were and how I overcame and succeeded in the past. This helped me to confirm that “ I Am More than Capable” and if I did it before I can certainly do it again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  1. Venture beyond my comfort zone to try new things and opportunities often. By taking action despite my fears and self doubts helped me to take the necessary steps to overcome and manifest my dreams and goals.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

These 2 simple steps was the ammunition I needed to push past the mess in my head and alter my belief system in order to accomplish my goals.

Until Next Time

Is Sisterhood Crucial For Success?

Behind every successful woman is a sister friend or circle that support  and pushes her to be her best. Oprah has Gail, Kelly Rowland & Beyonce,  La La & Kim Kardashian to name  few. Either way they all have their sister circle.

As an introvert I love keeping to myself so sisterhood is foreign to me. I keep a handful of people close to me.

I would prefer to sit in a corner listening to my favorite book or just sit quietly at a function observing before networking or jumping into anything. I love keeping to myself.  Let me know if i am by myself with this one.Don’t get me wrong, I love to have fun and party  but when I’m in a comfortable setting. 

I am starting to believe that this whole introvert thing is a means to accept the term and remain comfortable? This i will address another day but overtime I learned that this is not the way to grow and succeed. 

When women come together to support and empower other women, something magical happens. You need quality relationships, accountability and people that will keep you in check. You need that sisterhood that will force you out of the corner and out of your comfort zone. Those sisters that will ask you “Why haven’t you started that thing yet?” Sisters that listen to you, accept you as you are, see you as who you are becoming, don’t hold you back or get jealous of you, support you in your mission, and celebrate you. Your sisterhood should empower you.

 Heck Women Understand Women!

Oftentimes with entrepreneurship, it can get a bit lonely especially when former friends are not on the same journey as you. It is always great to have like minds and folks of different experiences able to pour into you and guide you available to you.
So all my introverted ladies that’s stepping outside their comfort zones to network, build relationships, businesses, tribes and pour into others reach out and  send a text to your tribe letting them know how much you appreciate them.

For those that are searching for a tribe there are 2 things you can do:

1. Search Facebook Groups with similar interests and join them. Comment, make connections, friend requests and contribute to the group.


2. Create a tribe of your own. I am certain that there are many women out there looking for a tribe, start your own.

If we truly expect to rise to the levels of success we want, we must come together.

Are Your Goals On Track For 2019?

goal tracking

We are beginning the 3rd quarter of 2019.

My time is flying …….

Are you still tracking your progress?

Are you on target for your 2019 goals?

Half of the year is officially gone but there is still time for you to get back on target.

Here are 2 questions you should be asking yourself to evaluate if your on track :

1. Are you meeting your daily, weekly and/or monthly goals? 

Its time to go back to your goals and review what you had set to accomplish by this time. Don’t worry if you’re  not on target, at least you are aware of where you stand.

Don’t be too hard on yourself either, life happens and sometimes life can throw us off track. The key is to get up and get back on track. Start small and start with your weekly goals. This can help you establish what you need to focus on this week in order to get back on track.

Next check out your monthly goals and press restart. Change the dates realistically and reschedule your dates throughout the rest of this year.

Don’t give up on your goal because you feel off track just keep going. For example, if your goal was to lose 10 pounds by June and you were supposed to workout 3 x a week to accomplish this, then begin working  your weekly goal this week and reschedule that goal for your 10 pound loss for July.

2. What 2 things do you need to change to bring the results you need?

Think about what caused you to fall off track and what do you need to put in place to remain off track. It could be accountability. Accountability can be in many different ways. Depending upon your goal, you can have an accountability partner, hire a coach or mentor, set alarms in your phone, create daily and weekly task lists etc. There are many different tips and tricks to help you stay focused.

Identify what 2 things you need to do or put in place in order to remain successful with your goals and DO IT!

These two questions will allow you to self-reflect, evaluate where you are and identify what you need to move forward successfully in completing your goals. It also identifies any weaknesses that you need to address in order to be successful. There is nothing wrong with re-strategizing  and starting all over. Learn from your mistakes and keep pressing forward.

2019 is halfway gone and just like that 2020 will be here. Do not let your 2019 goals be the same for 2020.

You have the tools. Get it Done!!

Until next time 💋

How to overcome negative thoughts and achieve success?

Happy Monday!

The mind can play some serious tricks on you. It can cause you to doubt your ability, power and your dreams!

.

Here are 3 tips for keeping your mind right and goals tight:

.

1. Read!! Knowledge is key.

The more you know the more you grow. As you gain more knowledge you gain more confidence in your area of expertise and it leaves less room for doubt. Not only can we learn from the successes of other entrepreneurs but we can also learn a huge amount from Not only can we learn from the successes of other entrepreneurs but we can also learn a huge amount from their failures as well.

2. Personal Development.

Personal development is a lifelong pursuit because we always have room to grow. You must have the desire to and be open to learning and growing. Personal development helps you to gain more confidence and strengthen your beliefs. You can learn from others that have accomplished the same and more. Investing in trainings, workshops, conferences, READING ( #1) are keys to your overall growth. Either way you must invest in your personal development.

.

3. Which should be number one…Prayer 🙏🏾!

Prayer changes everything. Pray to eliminate your negative thoughts and distractions. Reach deep inside to access the power of praying in order to change your thoughts, and ultimately your life. Prayer is a two-way communication with your highest power (for me it’s GOD). When we tap into his resources by faith and pray, miracles happen.

When in doubt, pray!

When afraid, pray!

When worried, pray!

When in trouble, pray!

.

Prayer, reading and professional development will help you to become more knowledgeable and confident which helps you to be more focused and productive.

Until next time 💋
