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.

It’s time for you to define and design, not just your success, but your UNSHAKABLE success and this book will set you on the right path. Read more in my book #UnshakableSuccess.
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 fromNot only can we learn from the successes of other entrepreneurs but we can also learn a huge amount fromtheir 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.
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?
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
