Day 23: Capacity

Day 23: Capacity I have found that over the past year my capacity has changed to reflect my desire for giving, receiving, and living on a larger level.  My capacity for healing, with the loss of my Grandmother… my capacity for nurturing and unconditional love as help I others grow… Capacity is the key to expansion. You cannot ask for and expect more if you are not ready to expand your capacity to handle what comes your way.  Fear of change, failure, and the unknown will keep you trapped at a level where your capacity is so limited that you … Continue reading Day 23: Capacity

40 Days: Day 5 – Love

(Instagram series @drgaillewis) Day 5: Love You are your first true love.  As you grow and evolve, learn to continually fall in love with who you will be as well as who you are. If you don’t love yourself where you are at, it will be harder to move yourself to where you want to be. Why? Because self love demands that you always want the best for you. Would you put ARCO gas in a Bugatti? Probably not, because you want only the best for the best.  You should view yourself the same way…. You should ALWAYS want the … Continue reading 40 Days: Day 5 – Love

Don’t be Afraid to Dream

What ever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind will achieve. Conceive positive thoughts that are in the present tense. Instead of “I will..” say “I am…”. Connect to your preordained destiny, what has been promised over your life in the spiritual realm. Believe those positive thoughts to be true in spite of what you see, have experienced, or feel.  Your eyes and your mind will play tricks on you. Your mind will recall negative experiences to justify what your eyes think they see. Achieve those positive thoughts by consciously taking steps daily , walking on and in faith … Continue reading Don’t be Afraid to Dream

A word on being single

Food for thought: I keep seeing posts and hearing people telling those who are single to: • learn to love yourself first • learn to love your own company • become a person you would date and fall in love with And the list goes on…. Well, guess what?!? Not everyone who is single: • has self esteem issues • isn’t an amazing person in their own right • hasn’t created a fantastic single hood that others would envy There are those who are single and not happy about it because of the circumstances resulting in them being single or … Continue reading A word on being single

You Have the Will to Make a Way

It isn’t the mistake that defines you and your future, the defining moment is found in how you handle setbacks. Don’t let bad things or moments define and distract you. Things happen to all of us that are not planned or desired.  Change how you view failures and setbacks so that you allow yourself to feel the emotions but not be ruled by them. #SuccessIsEarned #LiveWithPurpose #SeeWithVision #SuccessIsAMindset Continue reading You Have the Will to Make a Way

   Wondering why nothing is changing for you? Ask yourself a few questions: • if what I have been doing hasn’t gotten me beyond this point, is it really working for me? • what am I needing to do differently to see differently? • do I have a clear vision of what that “different” is? You can’t achieve more with a lazy or complacent attitude. You have to be willing to push yourself out of your comfort zone into unfamiliar territory to achieve unfamiliar and uncommon success. Sound like too much to do? Then bite-size it. Think about what you … Continue reading 1% Greater

Kid President – Pep Talk about Teamwork and Leadership via Empowerment Network

Originally posted on The Cognoscenti LLC: “Two roads, diverged in a woods..and I took the road less traveled, and it hurt man” – Kid President Cutest video on leadership and teamwork. That quote makes a very valid point that should not be missed.

That is the beautiful paradox of leadership. Enjoy! Continue reading Kid President – Pep Talk about Teamwork and Leadership via Empowerment Network
