Motivation Monday’s: using your gifts

Hey all! 

Happy Monday to you! You know it’s Motivational Monday’s and today’s message is using your gifts. 

This is a lesson that I too, am working towards doing. I believe we all have skills that make us stand out from others and it would be good if expand on it. It could be the start of your own business, a hobby or volunteering your gifts to give back to the community. 

I also believe that if even if you want to volunteer your services, it could make you happier. By giving back to others and helping them in need, that could raise your self esteem and you will feel good about yourself. 

Think about it, you never know friends.

Networking

Hey guys! 

Question… Does networking come easy to any of you? 

We live in a busy world and its all about who you know. Closed mouths don’t get fed, so if you seek, you shall find; ask and you shall receive. 

I will be first to admit that I freeze when it comes to networking. I am naturally a “people” person but the fear of rejection becomes my excuse. Yes, excuses is what it is. 

This is one reason to why I’ve decided to become more serious about blogging and  sharing a piece of me to the cyber world. I have hopes and dreams and Now is the time to ACT. 

How about you all? Are you having success with Networking?

Thank you for reading and sharing

Blogging schedule

Hey all!

So I’ve been doing some thinking in regards to the delivery of my blog. I need to be more active and the only way I can do that is by having a schedule. I’ve decided that I will post about certain topics on certain days. I believe by doing this, I will be able to keep an audience and you all can also know what to expect. I’m very excited!!!

What does success mean to you?

We often talk out being rich and successful yet many of us haven’t scratched the surface to what that requires. I too, can admit that I want to be successful and do what my heart desires like many. The question becomes, “why aren’t you living your successful life like the next up and coming person?” The answer: Committment. I was listening to a video by Ms. Marshawn Evans of marshawnevans.com and she made perfect sense. 

Think about the things in life for you that are going great… More than likely it’s something we all are committed to doing. Now think about that one aspect of your life that isn’t how you expect it should be, it’s very possible that it may be something you are not committed to and fear is apart of that void. 

I have so many ideas and I know in my heart and soul what I’m meant to do but the fear of failing always creeps onto my shoulder. However, you know the difference between us and those who are entrepreneurs? Having the fear and then stepping out on faith. When you give it your all aka “Committment”, you are nervous of the outcome but you also realize you can never give up and that’s when you take that leap! 

We are all made for greatness and we will get there. What’s your passion? Or what would make you successful?

Believe it… See it

or should you see it first to believe it? 

Success, many of us are scared of it. We have talents that possibly can build empires, yet we are scared of failure, scared to get out of our comfort zone. Many have to be convinced that the plan will work if not then they will not believe it. This is the difference between those who make their dreams a reality and those who keep dreaming. 

Timing can be wrong, struggles can appear but I believe in you beauties, I believe in me. Let’s do this!

Patience is a virtue

I know we have heard this phrase plenty of times. Our elders say “don’t rush things”, “your time is coming”, or “you have to wait”. Most of the time it could have been a contest we wanted to win or wanted to do something that we were to young to do. Question is now: What about adulthood?

As adults, we work, have responsibilities and want to live a certain life style. We have an attitude that things need to be quick and in our hands immediately but like our elders said “you have to wait”. Just because you have to wait does to mean u sit on a stoop and count sheep, no you have to continue to work hard to have what ever it is you have lined up.

If it’s a relationship that you want to have, don’t worry even though you haven’t met him or her on the first few dates doesn’t mean he or she doesn’t exist. It can be many factors to why you weren’t aligned to meet yet or if you have met, possibly the opportunity isn’t right at that moment. Just don’t give up, keep bettering yourself and it all will work out.

If it’s career decisions, that too will work out. Rather it’s a business you are starting, that dream job or promotion, it will be your turn soon. You will be successful and it all does come together. Keep trying, don’t give up.

Patience is a Virtue….

Accountability

No one likes to take responsibility for the bad outcomes or experiences we face daily, it’s easier to point the finger to someone else.

Let’s say a student has detention after school.
Parent: why are you serving detention?
Student: Ms. Day only singled me out and there were other kids doing the same thing. She doesn’t like me
Parent: ok other kids acted up, but what do YOU do?
Student: I was playing and talking while she was teaching. But the other kids dared me to do it.

How many times have we heard this dialogue? Even into adulthood. We will still make excuses or find a way for the lime light to not be on ourselves or we have to take someone down with us.

relationships
I hear quite often about people in relationships getting mistreated. As hurtful as it may be, we must think about our role in the events. Has this person showed you a pattern of the same behavior? Did you set the tone of what you wanted in the beginning? If you allowed someone to have a lot of benefits in the beginning of the relationship, there really isn’t much to look forward to. Your mate has to earn your love and respect.

career
If you are reprimanded on your job for lateness there is nothing to blame but yourself. Yes traffic can be horrible, kids can be sick, a flat tire could occur but what makes you think your employer cares? Take responsibility and wake up earlier so that you can make it to work before your schedule time.

So accountability friends. We have to do better and handle our responsibilities.
