Your Haters Have a Purpose

The same way that you have an assignment or divine purpose, so do your haters. While your friends will comfort, elevate and celebrate you, your haters promote you. How? Because they spend so much of their time talking about you, others will wonder who you are and what is it about you that has them “obsessed”. Your ability to survive or conquer them will give you significance. People don’t remember the losing teams, they remember the victors. Finally, your enemies and haters force you to do and be better. You have to bring your A-Game constantly so as not to … Continue reading Your Haters Have a Purpose

Speak What You Seek

Tomorrow is almost here…it’s  another Monday, another week… We all have that moment where we wish the weekend could last longer. We think to ourselves how much we hate Mondays and all of the ish we have to deal with.  It’s easy and acceptable to complain… that’s what we do, especially on Mondays. Try something different. Take a different path, one equally visible but less traveled..  Instead of talking about your problems, talk about what you dream… your vision… your impact in the world  Once you do that, you’ll see things start to change because you are giving attention to … Continue reading Speak What You Seek

Push Through 

Whatever you do, don’t stop.  Cry, be angry, get frustrated,  feel tired.. But DO NOT stop.  Push through, trusting and believing that things are working out to and for your good. Understand, though, that sometimes that means addition by subtraction. You have to trust that if you lose something or someone in the process, the loss is making room for what really belongs. Push through. Have faith, and push through.  Continue reading Push Through 

Move The Clouds

The pessimist complains about the overcast day and how dark it is, making it difficult to see. The optimist hopes the clouds will clear up and the day will get better.  The leader adjusts the light. The change agent says, “Learn to move the clouds… ” – Dr Gail Lewis Clouds are moved by the wind… the wind determines their speed, direction, etc.  A victim mentality complains about the impact of the clouds.
