The Most Powerful Thing You Have…

The most powerful thing you have and how to activate this inner super power.

Your imagination!

Your imagination is a directive. It sort of tells you where your ❤️ wants to go and why. Its an intention.

And when you combine purposeful intention with an elevated emotion... Watch out world!


Opportunities just start showing up "out of the blue" - it's not.

Things just start working out in your favor.

You start to wake up with a little pep in your step, excited about life and EXPECTING it to just go well.

Yup! I expect things to just be amazing. Note: I didn't say perfect. I said amazing. Even in the details that I don't know, even when it's not going how I think it should. It still ends up amazing.


Because God is amazing. He plays the long game. But my point is:


If you can dream it, you can do it.
If you can hold it in your head, you can hold it in your hand.


🎈WHAT WILL YOU IMAGINE TODAY?

Try this Journal exercise: write down what you want at the top of the page.

Ask yourself what if I had that? What would life look like?

Then write what you FEEL! Thinking about it does nothing. When you feel it, you know it's working.

Always write in the past tense. As if it already happened - try it! That will will really get the emotions high! You will be so excited!

I do this when I have big things coming up that I'm nervous about.

I don't give in to the nerves. I don't give into the fear. Since imagination works both ways, i channel it into the narrative I want. Instead of letting my mind run rampant with the thing Im afraid of.

There are some days I don't let myself get out of bed until I have a new idea. I close my eyes and just meditate. Where will my mind take me today? When I quiet my thoughts/ignore the to-do list for a few minutes, what do I really feel called to do?

Then, pray. "where would you have me go, what would you have me do, what would you have me say, and to whom?" lesson 71, #acim

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution." - Einstein

Are Readers Leaders?

They say leaders are readers... Are they? 🤔

Or do leaders just enjoy learning, and books are the natural way to do that.

What do you think?

Personally, I've spent the last several weeks engulfed in books. I'm a #sagitarius so learning is like my go to stress reliever. When I'm annoyed, frustrated, sad... When I feel out of control or confused, I make the decision to learn a new thing...and I read and research until I have gotten my handle on it.

People who know me in real life know that I kind of know a lot about a lot. Well, this is my secret.

When the world is all over the place, having one singular point of focus helps me reel it in.

Here's what I will read this month:

  1. 1491: New Revelations of America Before Columbus by Charles Mann
  2. Nefertiti by Michelle Moran
  3. The Water Dancer by @tanehisipcoates
  4. George Washington by @ronchernow

Id love to hear your suggestions.

Currently interested in:

♥️ History
♥️ Biographies
♥️ Anthropology/sociology
♥️ And for fun, historical fiction

What are you reading? Gimme your recommendations. Gimme gimme!!! 🤗 🤗 🤗

Thinking of Starting a Business During Pandemic?

Starting a business in a pandemic? 👇🏽

Got this question yesterday:

Should I leave my job during a recession to build a business? 🤔

Well, I always say there are two types of people.

Type 1: As soon as they know they are called to entrepreneurship, the countdown to quit begins.

Type 2: Keeps job until the business is successful and self-sustaining.

BTW, There is nothing wrong with either of these as long as you're not making the decisions from a place of fear. I was Def type 1. But there's validity to type 2.

If you're in a 9-5 & feel called to say for a bit, Consider that your 1st financier. Having the stability may give you peace to empire build without worry $$$. In this case, the job is a blessing. Use the time wisely, but make it very clear to YOURSELF that it's temporary!

If you know God is calling you to start a business, be a life coach, write a book, speak, etc and you're STILL working at a job with no progress year after year, this is a much deeper conversation.

Lots to say, let's start here: taking the leap requires a level of trust that is going to seem uncomfortable and inconvenient. You won't realize how many control issues you have until you really gotta give it up lol. And It's NEVER going to feel like the "right time" so let's go ahead and throw that out the window.

Know this: God is gonna do what God does, but you're gonna have to show up for it. We all talk about Peter's lack of faith but let's not forget, he was the only one that got out the boat.

You're allowed to doubt. You're even allowed to be afraid. You can give yourself to permission to feel that. You are human. You should not, however, give yourself permission to be in your feelings so long you don't do the thing you're actually put on this planet to do.

Live the highest version of your calling. Start now.

♥️♥️♥️

Stop Competing With Other People… Your Only Competition is YOU!

I'm just gonna leave this right here.

We all compare. I mean, we are human lol. And we see sooooo much these days. We are literally bombarded with other people's wins everyday. And it makes us wonder why we can't have it, in the way they have it, at the same time they have it, and at the level they have it.

I always say I'm a pretty self-centered #entrepreneur lol. Meaning, I am pretty good at staying in my lane. I've learned to trust myself, trust God with what He's given to ME! And make my moves accordingly.

While it's rare that I find myself wanting something someone else has, I'm not immune to comparison it is from time to time. But thankfully, I can very quickly snap back to my own version or reality. Because the truth is... I really only want what I am meant to have in the way I'm meant to have it.

You may see other people live at a level you desire, but the truth is, you have no idea what they had to go through to get there.

You have a destiny. You have a level of success that is meant for you. You have a future version of yourself that is greater than what it is today, but if you keep wanting someone else's life, you can very easily get lost in your own journey.

So... When comparisonitis rears its ugly head, here are some things to remember. 

>>Competition assumes that everyone has trained the same way. And life isn't that way. You have experiences, gifts, talents, education, etc that, when combined, creates a unique playbook. No one else has what you have in that regard. And you don't have anyone else's.
>>Competition requires metrics. Success isn't always measured in metrics. Only a fool looks at success based solely on numbers.
>>Competition puts the focus on the wrong person (ie someone that's not you!). Use that energy to focus on yourself - stop worrying about what Susan is doing down the street.
>>The biggest thing... Comparison robs you of joy. You get no fulfillment from comparing yourself to others. There's no true satisfaction, other than proving your ego to be right. Comparison is a distraction from what you are truly meant to be in this life. So... Just stop!

You have your own greatness inside of you. Time to let that out! ❤️

Why Perfectionists Make Bad Entrepreneurs

I'm sure some "Karen" is gonna be triggered by this... But it still needs to be said.

I've been doing this work for years. And perfectionism is one of the biggest roadblocks to success when it comes to entrepreneurship.

They want it all to be perfect before thy launch anything. And since... 

💥 Newsflash 💥...

It's never going to be perfect they just never launch.

They don't launch a business.
They don't launch a course.
They don't launch a workshop.
They don't launch a book.
They don't launch themselves.

Oh... But people love to theoretically make plans. I mean, give them a piece of paper and a they will go to town writing it all out.

When I give people workbooks to help them plan, they are all over it!

When I say it's go time... Completely different story.

I watch people sit on genius all. The. Time.

>>> Waiting for the right time.
>>> Waiting for the right equipment.
>>> Waiting for the right # on the scale.
>>> Waiting for the right $ amount in their bank account.

I can go on and on. I've heard it all at this point.

The right time is now. Cuz now is all you have.

And the power to decide is always yours!

Meanwhile, this video is available on demand, on my Facebook page, so head on over!
