Willing Wednesday!

Responsibility – “Responding- to- your- Ability”

Its responsibility Wednesday, and time for a reality check about life’s unfair provisions, and those things that we complain about on a daily basis. Those things that make us unhappy with our family and forefathers who’s resulting actions caused us to inherit horrible genes, lack of money, poor manners, lack of mentors, or any other undesirable situation. This may sound really insensitive and harsh, but the reality of life is that ultimately, you are still responsible for your life, without exception, and even in its very precarious condition. Your abilities may not measure in length or depth in comparison to others that you meet or compare yourself to. So, why measure at all?   There will always be someone bigger and better, and that’s perfectly fine as long as you represent your “Absolute Best”. That best places you ahead of the game in any regard, so discard the pedestal syndrome, because everyone has issues, some just more pronounced than others. Learn to love yourself, and embrace growth! Furthermore, looking from the outside in, to compare yourself to someone else’s success is naive and unhealthy. Although you may think that you want their cars, homes, careers, and trophy wife (or to be one), it remains a mystery as to if you would even want to do what it takes to sustain it! The word for this week is “Epiphany”

Understanding how your Personal “Time Horizon” affects your life!


It takes Discipline, Dedication, and Determination to pull off getting through each week with positivity and encouragement. Each week that passes can leave you with the feeling that you’ve lost time, and nothing is really being accomplished. You can easily overcome that feeling of doom and gloom or the feeling of simply not feeling adequate by taking a few simple steps. Take a quick look at what time slots were available in the past week that you adequately utilized, versus the downtime that you wasted watching reruns on television, or other insignificant activities. There you will find time to finish the book that will change your life, or research what it will take to start that new business that you’ve been dreaming of. Time is simply a space in your life that adds or takes away from your present and future, that can be used to make a difference in one way or the other. The most important element is your “Time Horizon” which sets a precedence on how time-sensitive your life goals are and other important factors in your life that affect your future. There are short term horizons, and long term ones as well, and it’s pertinent that you give proper attention to both. Set weekly goals for items that you want to accomplish, and put them on your electronic calendar to receive notifications. Those reminders will become second nature, placing your life goals in order. Long term goals can be looked at on a monthly basis, (or more frequently if possible) giving serious thoughts and considerations to nurture those goals. Think, Retirement, Savings, Paying off Debts, Personal and Professional Connections (Networking), Career, Personal Development, and Future Life Partner/Spouse. Time is of the essence, Redeem the time, Embrace Positivity, and No Matter what, don’t quit. Happy New Year!

Claim your Prosperous and Successful New Year! “Here how”

2019 has quickly eluded us, forcing us to prepare for 2020. It’s not just another number you know? Its destination meets planning and execution. Otherwise, it does just become another number, and soon, there will be many of those years that have quietly passed, without progress, or new developments. Reflecting back in 2019, you may not have the same people in your lives, and some may have even transitioned from earth. Either way, the evolution of growth, and commitment to simply being better than you were last year, is how you start your pursuit of prosperity. For some prosperity may mean the accumulation of wealth and opulence. For others, it may mean succession and having accomplished more than they did last year. For most, it simply means setting a “New Year’s Resolution” and being happy with setting that goal, is good enough for them.

The truth is…  TRUE SUCCESS happens when you understand that moving from one accomplishment and purpose to the next is how you WIN!   It means not sleeping in every weekend, or turning off the television to read that life-changing book that you never finished. It also means spending quality time with people who sharpen your wittiness, and intellect. Being mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually sound is where you start, and certainly how you finish.

If your commitment looks a lot like it did last year when you abandoned your enterprise, then that means you have not set serious goals for yourself, and are not serious about change. It’s not just a cliché, it’s how you move from one great success to the next. Repeating something doesn’t mean you will accomplish it, committing to executing it, and firing up your victory march is how you get there; and breathing your insatiable and unquenchable quest to win into your own personal paragon is how you prevail! Pay close attention to your Journey, and certainly who you bring along with you, it’s all relative to accomplishing a sound finish! Remember: TIPS for 2020- “You will ultimately become exactly like those who you spend the most time with, so choose wisely” Hope your Christmas was Merry, and have a “Happy and Prosperous New Year!”

Impeachment hearings will never be fair (here’s why)

Hopefully America is not sitting back waiting for a fair and just outcome of the impeachment Hearings? Here’s why! There is no one on planet earth that can be 100% unbiased in their interpretation, fairness, judgment, or resolution without losing at least some of their personal convictions and covenant selfishness. It’s pretty simple, man (humans) are incapable of being fair, that’s it, it will never happen. That is why even if the president deserves to be impeached it will never be based on an absolute and unprejudiced hearing. That’s not to say justice shouldn’t be served, just that there is NO real justice when humans have an input or influence. So….. that means fairness doesn’t exist, because humans are incapable of being 100% fair. Too many life experiences jades us all, and that’s real, although behind the curtain an oath is taken, it’s all taken in vain!

Pink Hair “Don’t Care”

Pink Hair don't care

Life is colorfully interesting, and depending on what color you love, it simply works for you! Pink hair, red skirt, psychedelic shoes, or your favorite black dress. No matter what you love, it represents you so wear it well, and don’t be afraid to embrace your favorite color and God given talent which is what compels the greatness in you. Have you ever noticed a woman with a bold vibrant dress with red lipstick, or a male daring to wear a pink shirt with khaki pants, and said to yourself ” I could never pull that off”? Exactly, it’s not your style, then again maybe it’s time to use someone else’s inspiration to compel yours!  That only means you don’t have to change who you are to share and appreciate what others have that may complement the organic you.  Life sucks when you are bound by tradition, afraid to wear white in the winter or eat an apple without cutting it first. It’s not that you have to lose your integrity to evolve, you just have to evolve using integrity! I guess you know by now that this color scheme scenario isn’t really about color, it’s about you loving who you are, and not being afraid to embrace someone else’s classy, another’s style, modus operandi, or their eclectic and broad variances. Once you learn to first love yourself, you will evitably be able to appreciate the diversity that others offer, including their friendship, cultures, and branding.  That is truly what happiness and contentment are about!  There are a time and season for everything, so maybe it’s time for you to start appreciating yourself and stop comparing yourself to others who you probably wouldn’t want to be anyways. Be inspired by others, not a duplication of them!
