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:


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.


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


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…’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!


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.

How to Go From Ordinary to Extraordinary?


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.

Get Ready For Your Next!

I heard something great this week that just made me shift my focus. Often times we go through situations where we feel like we are not making any progress. You look at your current situation and feel like you’re in the same place, and stuck. You feel like you even have taken a few steps back. You’re looking around you and seeing successful people doing great things and wondering when will it me my turn. Your experiencing all the ups and downs in your business and career and fell as if you are moving backwards.

Let me encourage you today……think of your journey like a slingshot! Those steps you are taking backwards and the discouragement is the stretching and pulling that God is doing. He is pulling and pulling and stretching and pulling and guess what’s next?

He is getting ready to release. What happens when you pull a slingshot all the way back and release…… propel forward with FORCE!

Imagine…..God is stretching you to propel you forward. This is the only way for you to accomplish what he has set in your heart to accomplish. That release will propel you to your next level because of how far back he had to pull and stretch you.

Just know that you are propelling forcefully into your next season, allow yourself to be stretched so that God can move you. Just be patient!

Until Next Time

40 Day or 40 Year Goals………What Will it Be For You?

In the Bible there is great story about the Israelites and the promise that God gave them. A promise of prosperity in a land of milk and honey. This journey was supposed to take 40 days but instead it took 40 years. One important thing is that during the 40 years of wandering in the wilderness God still provided quail and manna.

Check this out…..God has promised you something, he knows it will take you some time to finish but it is taking much longer because of your lack of faith, uncertainty and fears. You will not take a leap of faith, go full force to achieve what God has promised because you are comfortable with the provision. Just like the Israelites, God is still providing for you as you wander in the wilderness.

He has great things for you but you’re still satisfied in the wilderness. What will it take for you to receive the promise of prosperity in the land of milk and honey? What will it take for you to blow through those goals and the vision God gave you?

He just doesn’t want to provide for you, he wants to do exceedingly and abundantly above all you can ask or think but……….your comfortable in the small provisions.

Don’t allow yourself to take 40 years to accomplish what God has promised you in 40 days.

Here are three things you can do now to accomplish your goals timely:

Have Faith – You don’t need a lot…the size of a mustard seed can move a mountain. As long as you have it make a decision to move forward to accomplish your goals.

Take consistent Action- Faith without works is dead. You must take consistent action in faith knowing that if you take the first step God has the rest. Be consistent.

Take the land- Act as if you have ready received it. What does it look like? How do you feel once accomplished? Who will benefit the most and what will they say? What will the testimonies be? Who will you become in the process.

Again, your 40 day journey should not take you 40 years. Just like the Israelites, you are fully equipped and have everything that you need to be successful and accomplish your goals.

Take Action Now!

Get out of your own way!

So I am having a real talk transparent moment.

I have some goals set in place and action steps and  I have been procrastinating on taking action.

I have allowed self-doubt to dominate and let negatives thought tell me ” You cant do it like them, or you have to do it like her”. I got so caught up with these thoughts that I became paralyzed. Not physically, but in my path to success.

Have you ever felt stuck? Felt like you have no direction or clear set path? Felt like you need to make a move but you’re incapable? That was me so I did what I knew best……stay comfortable and take no action.

It happens to the best of us! The good thing is that I had a conversation with a really close friend of mine last weekend.

We talked for about 45 minutes and after that convo I felt like an idiot. She didn’t down talk me at all but made me realize how equipped I truly am and that God has placed this vision in me and therefore GET OUT OF MY OWN WAY AND DO ME!!

I could laugh at myself now for how silly I was being and how simple it was to change my thought process. Truth is , that It is so important to have great friends and counsel in your corner to help you get out of your own way. Often times we know exactly what to do but need that persons to hear us, then nudge or push  off of the ledge to get it done.

Do you have a close friend, coach or mentor that helps you to get out of your way?

I implore you to make sure that you have one if you don’t.

It saved me a lot of headache.

Until Next Time 💋


Best Advice Ever…

Have you ever heard the saying what you focus on expands?

Yeaahhh it’s true. Whatever you spend a lot of your time and energy on will grow.

Take a minute and focus on where or what you spend your time on. If it’s in the gym you see your results, if it’s work then you will see results there.

Here is the thing……are you spending time on the right things?

Worrying, stressing, partying, spending, procrastination, or service, learning and growing, health and wellness, family, investing, good relationships?

Take a moment this evening or before you go to bed to reflect on what you spend your time on and see if there is a need to make some adjustments.

It may be time to refocus!

Are you in your zone?

There are so many ways in which you can use your gifts and talents to be helpful and efficient.

Do you know what environment that is for you ? Are you operating in your zone?

Is it your job, business, ministry, event planning, the kitchen, decorating, etc?

By not operating in the environment that you thrive in and/ or not being able to be helpful and efficient at what you do leaves you feeling unfulfilled and discontent.

First thing you need to do is identify your gifts and talents. What am I good at?

What do I enjoy doing and wouldn’t mind doing it for free? What am I passionate about?

Then, identify who can benefit from your gift. Single moms, children, young women, professionals, entrepreneurs, teachers, corporate clients, etc. and identify the many places (home, schools, centers, churches) that you can find to serve them.

And Finally…….go out there and make it happen. People are waiting for you to bless them with what you have to offer. They are waiting for your testimony and knowledge.

It’s time to make moves!!!

Stay in motion….

Until Next Time 💋

Welcome to my Blog!!!

I am excited and stepping outside of my comfort zone for 2017 and hope you will join me.          

I am a very busy leader, mom, wife, servant in ministry, board member and more….Sounds like your busy life?                  

Only thing is sometimes I tend to get comfortable. There is always a next level- more growth, more impact and of course more money and its that time again to reach that next level. So I am taking action and looking to connect with you.  

It’s time for you to push past that self-doubt and move outside of your comfort zone in order to get to your next level. You were destined for greatness.

Proverbs 8:14 says “Common Sense and success belong to me, Insight and strength are mine”. So, you already have everything you need! 

Do YOU believe this?

Do you know that success is at your disposal? If not why?

 What is holding you back?

How can you move forward?       

Connect with me, subscribe for my blog posts, follow me on social media and/or leave a comment and let’s take this journey of getting uncomfortable and moving to the next level together. I will show you how it always works for me.
