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.

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 💋

CAN YOUR BELIEFS DETERMINE WHO YOU BECOME?

If your beliefs are made up of your constant thoughts, then can you think your way to success??

YES!

Your beliefs determine who you become.

If you are constantly thinking about lack, your insecurities or inabilities……

“I am not successful enough”

“I can never make that kind of money”

“I don’t know enough people”

“I can’t speak like her”

” I am not small enough”

Then that is exactly what you will believe and achieve. Doubt and insecurities will always creep in and win your mind and win.

Your beliefs are the key to you achieving your desired success. Highly successful people have been able to accomplish their dreams, excel in their industry and earn millions because of their beliefs.

“Successful people believe: in their ideas, in their determination, in their persistence, in other people and most important in themselves.

Their beliefs inform and inspire their actions — and that’s what makes them successful“.

If your thoughts are preventing you from believing that you can achieve the success you desire then it’s Time to break the cycle!

The Bible says to “take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5) and “As a man thinks, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7)

Try this one simple activity ,challenge each negative belief with a positive thought.

Try these for example;

“I am not successful ………I am a huge success and can accomplish anything”

“I don’t know enough people……. Social media positions me to meet millions of people”.

“I can’t make that type of money……I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.”

Your turn.

Think about some of the doubts and negative thoughts that have been floating through your mind. Write each one down and counteract each one with a positive thought, scripture or affirmation.

It’s time to start thinking your way to success.

Change your thoughts, and change the person you become.

Until next time 💋

Do you Know Better……..????

So I had to ask myself this question a few days ago.

I am so not pointing fingers …….

This is for me as well as you reading this.

Often times you know what you need to do, have the tools and the knowledge and still won’t make a decision to take the necessary action to do it.

For me sometimes my biggest downfall is Fear?

Wondering will I be successful at it, can I truly accomplish it? Is this meant for me.

What is it for you?

Fear?

Doubt?

Acceptance?

What holds you back from doing what you know you need to do?

What thoughts are playing in your head that stops you from moving forward?

I’m telling you now, you hold the power within you to Do, Be and Have all you desire.

Remember that you are fearfully and wonderfully made and God only has plans to prosper you, to give you hope and a bright future.

If you know this then nothing should ever stop you from doing what you know. I often have to reflect on this verse as reassurance for me when in doubt. I had to find a scripture that spoke to me during those times.

If you’re in need, go to his word and learn his solution for your problem. He is eager to not only bless you but will supply all of your needs. God expects us to gain increases on his investments in us.

God expects us to gain increases on His investments in us.

So now that you know this…….Will you take action and Do better??

Until Next Time

2 Reasons Why You Should Use Your Gifts & Talents?

Talents are inherited, gifts are received and opportunities are there to help us try, fail, learn, and grow.

This Gratitude week take some time to identify those gifts, talents and opportunities available to you. There is no time like now to do something new, step outside your comfort zone, fail a few times and learn the tools to succeed.

They say the burial ground is full of unused gifts and talents. We all know that life is short and tomorrow isn’t promised.  Don’t spend another day, week and year doing the same routine, the same old rat race, the same old agenda, the same old complaining that you need something more.

Here are 2 Reasons why you should use your gifts and talents:

  1. It Leads to a More Satisfying Life

    Your gifts and talents are ultimately your strengths, and these strengths when frequently used plays a positive role on  performance, satisfaction, fulfillment and your  overall quality of life. No more reason than that to identify them and use them.

  2. You Can Make Money From Them

 YES, our talents can help us earn money and YES, we all need money. We don’t need to feel guilty recognizing that money is one of the purposes why we should use our gifts and talents. Please, Please be careful though, remind yourself that gifts and talents are not just for accumulating money they are for serving and improving the lives of others.

 So don’t take for granted those gifts, talents and the opportunities available to you. Spend some time to identify them, be thankful for them and then establish a plan to use them to benefit others and yourself. When you find what you are really good at and with constant use and practice, your gifts can serve  you well.

Three Tips to Overcome, The Urge To Quit.

frustrated woman.jpg

Have you ever been really excited about starting a new venture and then lose the passion for it sometime later?  Did you get frustrated because you’ve been trying to be successful at something and just don’t seem to be able to get the goal you set?

Do you often think about just quitting?

We all deal with different forms of the quitting temptation on a daily basis, especially when it comes to rough times. That’s when we are tempted the most to give in and quit. It’s a constant battle but the victory lies in whether we act on it or not. Quitting always seem like the easiest thing to do. Folks are quick to quit their jobs, relationships, diets, goals etc. I call this the Quit Phenomenon.

Just know that at the moment when you want to quit the most, is the closer you are to reaching your goal. That moment of frustration and feeling like your actions are in vain is what prepares you for the victory. The struggle is what strengthens you, builds your character and appreciation for the win.

Here are 3 Tips to overcome the Quit Phenomenon:

MOTIVATE YOURSELF 

Take time every day to motivate yourself and do  not expect anyone to do it for you. Motivation is internal. Whether it be through meditation, prayer, reading, listening, or watching motivational material, it will encourage you and remind you of why you need to continue to persevere. Motivation is key to avoid the temptation of giving up.

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH GO-GETTERS 

The people who you spend time with the most will influence your success so choose wisely. If the majority of your friends are quitters or people who give up often, it might be a good idea to look for new friends who will encourage you to do your best.  Seek mentors and business coaches that can hold you accountable and push you towards accomplishing your goals

THINK ABOUT WHY YOU STARTED IN THE FIRST PLACE

When you feel like giving up, think about why you got started, reflect on  how far you have come and what you had to overcome to get there. You have already put in so much time and effort to get to this point, so why would you give up on your dreams now?

The secret to becoming a successful entrepreneur is keeping the motivation and drive to move forward, despite the obstacles or how you feel . You will find that following your dreams will become  much easier if you stay the course. It’s a constant fight on a daily basis but stay in belief, pray in faith and stand strong…..it’s closer than you think

Hang in there……Don’t Quit!!!!

How to Discover What Your Gifts and Talents Are?

What are some great ideas, gifts or talents you have?
 They say that the cemetery is filled with buried gifts and talents. Don’t let that be you. Don’t sit on it!

thinking

You received that gift or talent to act on it and bless others with it. It really wasn’t for you. There are people out there waiting on you to step into your greatness so that you can help them be great.

Ever saw something on TV or saw a book or conference title and said , ” I thought of that”…. but you didn’t act on it. Weren’t you upset? Had the nerve to say ” that was my idea”…….SMH!

Take a moment today to be still and think about all the things you like to do that only you can do best. Ask some of your friends what gifts and talents do they see in you?

Use this as a guide to think about how your talents and gifts can impact others and then build on it. Seek a mentor to help you monetize it, serve others and allow it to create the life you deserve.

There are a lot of vehicles out there to help you financially along your journey to discovering and  implementing your gifts and talents.

I can share whats working for me.

How to Go From Ordinary to Extraordinary?

grateful

Going from ordinary to extraordinary means you are living with gratitude.

You are spending your days excited about your life and your future. You are living from a place of love, enthusiasm, and gratefulness.

The seeds of discouragement cannot take root in a grateful heart.

Celebrate every win that happens no matter how small and be extremely grateful for them.

When you stay grateful you are focusing on what is going right in your life and not whats going wrong. Shield yourself from the attack of the enemy by remaining in a grateful state.

There is much to be thankful for, and so many others that don’t get the same opportunities or simply don’t take advantage of them. The opportunities are there for everyone, but many don’t take them as they are afraid of doing that little bit extra and they don’t believe they deserve it.

Being thankful that you were able to overcome , and being enthusiastic in the fact that you can show others how easy it can be creates a space for you to be extraordinary and of value.

You can be the light that helps them find the way to their dreams becoming a reality, simply through your testimony.

Being grateful contributes to you being extraordinary.

 

Until next time…..

How To Stay Productive When You Feel Like You Can’t Do It All? ….Part 3

So last week we spoke about Prioritizing your tasks and the week before we stated that Balance doesn’t exist.

Lastly, this week we will discuss It’s OK to say NO!

You can not manage your tasks effectively if you have more ASAP tasks than time in a day. It’s not cute to be busy and broke. Your goal is to be productive. Saying NO will Free you from over committing yourself and It will also release you from any additional menial tasks.

Accept the fact that you may disappoint someone because you are saying NO and prioritizing your tasks and time. You can’t please everyone, or do everything and you should not try to. Again your goal is to be productive and not overwhelmed and therefore some tasks will also be missed. It’s ok!!!

For the record, you will drop the ball like I did with forgetting to feed my 7 y/o dinner but guess what…its alright and she is still alive. Lol Don’t be too hard on yourself. Once you accept that there is no such thing as balance, prioritize and manage your tasks and understand that some things will not get done you’re on the road to success.

Until Next time
