Its Not Them.

If you have the same problem with everyone you meet – it’s not them.

You are the problem AND THE SOLUTION!

Be man enough or woman enough to be reflective. Reflection is hard, but so is finding peace and purpose for your life.

We talk about world peace and peace among races, but we neglect to find peace within ourselves. It’s difficult to help heal others when we are wounded – internally.

You First. You First. You First!

God Bless.

Why Do We Hate?

We hate because we are taught to hate. We hate because we are ignorant. We are the product of ignorant people who have been taught an ignorant thing..

There is no gene for racism. There is no gene for bigotry. You’re not born a bigot, you have to learn to be a bigot. Anything you learn, you can unlearn. It’s time to unlearn our bigotry.

I’m an educator. And it’s my business as an educator to lead people out of ignorance – the ignorance of thinking you’re better or worse than someone else because of the amount of pigment in your skin.

I Am Grateful… But Not Satisfied.

God woke me up.

I have food.

I have water.

I have clothes.

I have shelter.

I AM GRATEFUL…

But not satisfied.

We are here to do more than just survive. We should count our blessings but still know that God rewards work ethic and ambition. Just make sure you hold on to your integrity.

God Bless.

When We Lose our Excuses, We Find Our Results.

No one wants to hear your excuse, so stop making them.

Instead of making excuses, make adjustments. Take on an “adjustment” mindset.

When you stumble, adjust.

When you fall short, adjust.

When you make mistakes or fail, adjust.

Please, we must stop blaming our weaknesses and shortcomings on someone or something else. We must reflect on our own actions, and then make the proper ADJUSTMENTS!

Listening with an Open Mind and a Closed Mouth.

All to often, we listen with the intent to disprove or come up with a “come back.” Therefore, we never fully grasp what the other person, the world, or God is trying to tell us.

Practice listening without countering.

Practice listening with an open mind and a closed mouth.

Practice listening with the intent to fully understand.

From Dream to Reality – In Three Simple Steps.

Step 1: Dream Boldly and Without Fear!

Erase the fear of dreaming big. If your dream is big, audacious, and almost unbelievable – good! Own it! Don’t allow fear or an impoverished mindset derail or minimize your dream. Your dream is directly aligned with your purpose. And your purpose is blessed by the most high.

Step 2: Write it Down!

Transfer the dream from your mind to a piece of paper. Next, attach a date to your dream. A dream written down with a definite deadline becomes a goal. Next, break the goal down into small steps that can be taken daily. “Daily steps” create momentum, and momentum is just like magic! Momentum energizes us all and is a major factor in getting our goals accomplished!

Step 3: Show God You are Serious by Taking Action!

A goal supported with action is a goal supported by God. A goal supported by God, is a goal/dream that comes true.

“Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” – Galatians 6:7

In order for a harvest, we must first take the action of planting, cultivating, and nurturing our seed aka dream.

Dream big and take massive action!
