Welcome to Masterful Monday!


Masterful ~ the ability to be powerful, and skillful while taking command. Being Masterful on Monday is what you need to be impactful. It’s how you impose your will on the dreaded day back to work, by refusing to let the Monday morning blues abduct your masterpiece. Think about your potential, and what you need to accomplish today. Use the reversal system and reinvent your thought pattern.  Think about how proficient, skillful, and powerful you want to be, and how leaving your thumb print of success on everything you touch today is paramount.  Don’t lose sight of your goals, and take charge by using your adeptness.  Command attention when you walk into the room by using your magnetic persona, and your gracious demeanor.  When you want something badly enough, you don’t need an energy booster, you need the unquenchable and resolute thirst for success. So what ~ it’s Monday, that shouldn’t mean that you are tired from the weekend, it should mean an opportunity to manifest your proficiency and craft.  Note to self ~ don’t forget to be masterful!

5 Ways to Grace yourself through life!


My personal interpretation of Grace is that it is the most valuable yet understated word in the entire world.  Grace ~ To show honor or credit to someone or something without them deserving it.

Since we all know there are times when we would cut out portions of our lives that include people who have offended us or slighted us in some way, this article was created specifically for you. Grace was not created to establish a way to escape the experiences that make life complicated, it was created to provide purpose to your challenges, and to create substantive opportunities in this laboratory of life to remove unnecessary impurities which can ultimately hold us back and restrict us from being our best.  Let’s look at 5 ways to Grace yourself through life.

  1. Consider that most issues are blown out of portion, and  almost always appear worse than they actually are.
  2. Take the “This too shall pass” mentality with misunderstandings. Don’t over think things.
  3. Give people in your life a second chance to make it right.  The human body and mind is not designed to be perfect, and falters often, but sometimes with good intentions.
  4. Take notes on how other people’s differences complement yours, and be open to accepting people from different cultures and walks of life, especially when they endeavor to be productive.
  5. Let grace consume your thoughts, on a daily basis, instead of letting the instinctive nature be a precursor to unforgiveness which ultimately destroys the entire foundation of one of the most powerful words that exist “Grace.”

What’s the most powerful word in your world?


There are a few powerful words that make the top list, but the most powerful and impactful word is “YES“.  Yes is so powerful, that when used correctly, it can shift mental mountains. The word “YES” simply means to express affirmation or assent, or to mark the addition of something.  What if we used “YES” instead of “I’m not sure”, “Maybe”, “Let’s see what happens”  Those three phrases have elements of doubt, and uncertainty and contains components of fear and apprehension.  Hesitating on matters of the heart is one thing, however, we should delete the faltering of speech from our vocabulary when it comes to programming our mind to live in thrive mode regarding our success.  Just saying “YES” I can, places you at the positive end of both pleasant and difficult decisions.  Thinking and saying “YES” offer you positive, substitutive, and fundamentally powerful options that are beneficial to your life challenges. Yes also places you at the head of this game of life.    Who would have guessed that such a small word could present so many powerful opportunities!

Can You See with your Eyes Closed?



We have heard that your eyes are the windows to your soul, but closing them too often could mean limited or distorted vision. There is both scientific and theoretical supposition as to the role our eyes play in focusing. Did you know that we close our eyes approximately 28,000 times per day, that’s 10% of your day being utilized in the blinking state?  Scientists believe that blinking can be instinctive, although a more recent study shows that blinking occurs when we are taking an introspective rest.   That can mean either you are bored or giving your eyes and brain a brief moment to rest and focus. Now, let’s look at this from a fundamental stand point, and how we can apply this to our everyday lives. Taking too many mental breaks, taking your eyes off the prize, or allowing your mind to wander and lose focus, can mean that you are bored far too much. It could also mean that you need to use that 90% of open eye time to read, study, plan, and strategize your next life move. 


Success does have legs, but the legs won’t grow without nourishment.  That means cultivating your dreams without losing your focus, and without allowing anything to make you look away.  Another component to focusing is never blaming anyone for what you are responsible for.  Think about some of the most successful people in the world.  Have you noticed that they never look bored?  Let’s take Oprah Winfrey for instance, I have studied her posture for years, and this is my conclusion.  What’s so absolutely distinct about her is that she has the rare ability to make every person in her presence feel like they are the only person in the room.  That concentration and skill have rendered her one of the most successful women in America.  Powerful right?   That conclusion also supports the theory that firm focus on your life goals is one of the most emotionally charged

elements of success. Closing your eyes too often to avoid looking at life challenges won’t make them go away, instead, it clouds your visual stimuli. Even if you really want to look away, don’t.  Stare life challenges right in the face!  What does all this mean for your life?  It simply means that too much resting of the eyes trains your brain to be lazy, and not to function at its best.    Check out these facts that will surprise you about your potential.


th0EJJSRFQ.jpg                                                                       ~ FOCUS ~

Everyone is born with only gums, and no teeth, although we all have the same blue print for growth.  By late teens, the average person has all their adult teeth that number is 32.  This just means the potential is the same, but it depends heavily on how you nurture and protect them.

Did you know that the average person has between 640 – 800 plus muscles in the body?  There are three types including Skeletal, Visceral, and Cardiac. That is just another example that proves most of us have the same ability, although some people keep the muscles toned and healthy by exercising, while others fail to nurture the muscles, allowing them to become unhealthy and weak.

Although we are born with different levels of aptitude, the average person utilizes their brain in very different ways. Meaning, determining how you use your brain is pertinent to achieving the success that you desire.  When going forward, think about the importance of keeping your focus on valuable life commodities, and don’t sleep too long, you may miss your opportunities.

Your Journey to tomorrow!



Just thinking positively about your approach to tomorrow clears your mind of unnecessary stresses and frustrations. Instead of allowing the dreaded Wednesday blues to become your captive audience, think about the opportunities that Thursday and Friday possess. It’s pretty easy actually since the body responds to your mind’s character. Practicing the mechanics of building mental character provides sustainability for positive thinking, and aligns your body with your mind.  Your mind is like the GPS, it tells your body where to go, and how to get there.  So before you retire for the night, say hello to Thursday by thinking only positive and fortifying thoughts that bring peace and commitment to excellence.  It’s sound cliché, but just try it! Have a Happy Thursday!

Greatness is not a gift, but an offer!

Greatness starts when a person understands that being average is not good enough, and that the simple average sum has suffocated their potential.  Your greatness lies within you, and the greatness that you need lies ahead!  Don’t make the mistake of suppressing your Destiny by continually waiting, time is of the essence!  Take one more look at your life goals, and walk in that direction.  Make them a reality!

  1.  React to your vision.
  2.  Do it now.
  3. Never stop.
  4. Understand that greatness is not a gift, but an offer, don’t turn away, you could miss it.   Have a blessed and prosperous day!




Democrats vs Republicans, is your political party affiliation worth the demise of your relationships?

demoand rup

Democrats today say the donkey is smart and brave, while Republicans say the elephant is strong and dignified. Albeit, both can be true, the resulting damage of having to choose can be detrimental to relationships, business associates, and basic respect between party affiliates. The world is in an uproar and split because of political party differences. As a nation, we have to begin to put some perspective to this controversy. One very simple path that can be explored is to come to a mutual respect that there are very obvious and distinct differences between parties, and it is unlikely that will ever change. Another is to look deeply into how the differences complement each other while understanding that too much of any one thing can be unprofitable, and unhealthy. We eat and enjoy food because we have learned the importance of the essential nutrients, and of course the taste that pleases the palate. Most of us wouldn’t eat ice cream or cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or pasta three times a day. Why? Because it is nutritionally unhealthy, unbalanced, and causes medical and health issues that can ultimately shut down the body’s ability to flourish. That is also true as it relates to political party affiliations whatever they might be (because there are others as well).

Therefore, we must begin to take another look at how both parties have postures that enhance each other, and thus making both parties relative, and necessary. I am not talking roasting marshmallows or having a Kumbaya moment, but understanding that in order for our country to begin to heal, we have to concede that hatred and being incensed by opposite parties have not worked. I have heard of instances where best friends of 30 plus years, family members, and even marriages have failed because of political party affiliation wars. Don’t throw away your friends and family because of your political party differences as you may actually need them one day to visit you in the hospital, or just to be there for strength and support, and you must know that your political party affiliation can’t do that right?

To be perfectly honest, neither party has perfected the art of effectively managing the country, nor does it appear one can do it without the other. There is a respectable and wise way to deal and co-exist when in the company of political party differences. Avoid the subject altogether, or when you are engaged regarding someone’s views or posture that you disagree with, simply state, “Yes, both parties are necessary”. Remember that which is good and profitable, have balance, and substance, and should be complemented by experience, knowledge, and the ultimate interest of achieving the best outcome for the citizens at large. Life is too short, precious, and valuable to spend enormous amounts of time, fighting and seeking to destroy each other because people don’t embrace the same political party. Furthermore, you can’t actually believe that only one party has all the answers right? America – We have to get it together.

Impact Thursday!


Friday doesn’t mean you stop working, it means that you stop working at work, only to continue building your own dynasty.  Timing out means the clock starts over, so take short breaks instead, and use your free time to enhance your own greatness!


Life Passes Quickly, It’s Your Move!


Remember your Parents or Grandparents saying “looks like that was just yesterday”? That is not just a figure of speech.  Life moves quickly like a 50-yard dash, although it can sometimes feel like a marathon when it has no direction. How you approach your life, determines your destiny, and your destiny determines your legacy. Waiting abstracts the nutrients from your life roots, which leaves your destiny thirsty and malnourished. There are fundamental requirements needed to keep your life moving in an upward and abundant momentum, and procrastinating on providing your life with the next chess move can prove to be detrimental.  Let’s look at some essential tips to assist you with your journey.

•    Successful people don’t take breaks, they take opportunities to seize the day.
•    Waking up just an hour early to plan, gives you the upper hand on the competition.
•    Aspiration, Hope, Ambition is primary, Inspiration is secondary!
•    Get to know yourself, and don’t be afraid to identify and attack your areas of weakness.
•    Don’t depend on anyone to make your success a reality, that’s your job.
•    Waiting for the right moment to put feet to your vision, is like waiting to drink water when you are thirsty.  Delay is Destiny’s arch-enemy!
•    Be a Trendsetter, not an Outlier
•    Everyone has a unique and idiosyncratic gift, identify yours and begin the development process.
•    This may sound cliché, but… see yourself being as successful as your idols.  They are people just like you who decided that just being good, isn’t good enough! They strived for Greatness!
•    Don’t leave your life “Under Construction” forever, finish the project, and keep maintenance in full force!
