"Prayer in Action is Love, and Love in Action is Service" ~Malika E Nura~ Love.... Without Time and Action is the peanut butter without jelly of this thing we call life. One without the other is neither... Take the latter and choose the former. That is the space where Humanity begins and grows. You must take the time to first learn to have love of self. Then.... Make time to learn how to BE Love... Properly... and Fully. It is in that space that you will learn how to love oth
'Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.' -Leo Tolstoy If the results of what you want to achieve in your life do not meet or match your expectations.... If you have been doing the same "Thang" and getting the same "Thang" but desire something more.... Time to do.... and be.... different. The best parts of your life are connected to the amount of effort you put into doing those "Thangs" that make you feel uncomfortable.. That make you afr
Last year at this time I was preparing to do my speaking event with Les Brown and Cheryl Wood.... It was one of the proudest moments of my life and I was TERRIFIED... lol. And yet I did it any way.... scared and all. That is how you achieve your own greatness. You stretch... you be uncomfortable with being comfortable and you do the "Thing" that helps you be the best version of who you were meant to be. My journey is far from over....there is more to do and things to say....

"What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?" -- Robert Schuller. When I was a kid I had a blue Peter Pan figurine... He was blue and he was awesome. One day while at the playground right outside of my elementary school a local bully asked if he could see it. A part of me... even at 7 years old knew that it was a bad idea, but two things made me do it. Number one.... He was 15 and a lot bigger. Translation... I was scared so... yeah.. Number two... He a
In 2006 I died on the operating table. It was both Scary.... and illuminating.... Freeing in a sense. Endings have a way of reminding you about how important your place in life is.... But only if you are listening. Every so often there is a second chance offered.... to be better to do better.. Take it.. Take it and use it. Become the "Thing" you always dreamed you could be. On purpose....with purpose .... Inside work.... Outside Results.... Give me a "YES" in the comments if
“The present is life - all else is either memory or imagination.” ― Abhijit Naskar Most of us grow up with fantasies of what our lives would be like when we got older. What we would look like. What type of house we would live in. Who we would be in love with. What type of job we would have. Many of us…if not most of us lived in that space what tomorrow will bring. Consequently…. we also grew up with the often stated " Plan for a Rainy day. “of which, in my view is only HALF o
~The Greatest Oak was once a little nut that held its ground....~ ~Anonymous When I first started riding a bike I fell over every few feet. I would look around embarrassed as the other kids zipped pass me. Many times, I was picking that bike up with tears in my eyes. Both from the feeling of failure and the crushing weight that I would never get it right. Here is the key. I kept.... getting...up. I dusted myself off, threw my leg over the bike and pushed forward. Was it easy?

Abra Kadabra ~If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!~ Benjamin Franklin Many of us have the same wish.... We think about walking into a convenience store, buying a lottery ticket and winning boat load of money. Along with that wish we also most likely have spent the money in our heads. I am not a gambler by nature.... and although I take risks they are "calculated" to ensure maximum potential benefit. Now.... let me level set.. Hard work does NOT always equal a big r
~Don't Lose your present to your Past~ ~Unknown~ Each and every one of us has gone to sleep thinking about the "Bad" day we had. That "Bad" Day sometimes follows us to La La land, haunting us like a B movie ghost. Then when wake up.... we feel some kind of way about something that happened the day prior. "Why did he/she say that to me?" "How did I end up being blamed for this?" "Why did I take that way home?" "Woe is me... blah... blah... blah." I am not diminishing anyone's
“Dreams come in a size too big so that we may grow into them.” — Josie Bisse To often we shoot for the sky instead of the stars and then wonder why our dreams fell short of becoming reality. Oh to be sure there are other reasons that may contribute to us not achieving (notice I did NOT say fail) our dreams, but one of the more impacting ones is because we chose to shoot for average versus awesome. So let me ask you... Are you doing enough to live as your best you? The amount
Trybe... ~Courage isn't about knowing the path, it's about taking the first step.~ Katie Davis I could pepper you with quotes about starting your goals and not being afraid to take that first step, but what I will do instead is remind you that all you have ever wanted to have is based on what is both possible, probable and what you are willing to work for. That is the space were "Interest" becomes "Commitment". That is the space AND place where your dreams and effort collide
Trybe.... “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” ~Martin Luther King Jr~ Growing up as a kid in Baltimore, we did a host of things to occupy our time. From 4 Square, to Running Bases and one of our favorites... Dodge Ball. I won't waste time telling you about the game mechanics. If you have never played or even seen the movie you have my condolences.... Anyway... sometimes w
Trybe... There are three types of relationships. Benign... Parasitic.. Symbiotic.. One has zero benefit. One has benefit for one of the parties. One has benefits for both. Benefits, much like love languages need to be reasonable and equitable. More importantly, they have to be learned and discussed. Sync.. Tandem.. Symbiotic.. Balance.. Harmony... As a coach, speaker, and author, I teach my clients to understand the differences. Differences. Not just in relation to people but
Trybe.... Listening to Comprehend versus Listening to Respond requires both people in the conversation to manage their emotions, be open minded and open hearted. Reciprocity and Empathy... That is the essence of dialogue. This is not a Man or Woman thing... it is a Human thing. Comment YES if you agree.

Trybe...W.O.W ~Scarcity = There will never be enough. Abundance = There is more than enough. ~Aaron Endre Abundance.... is a mindset. And yet.... Someone, somewhere convinced many of us that "Success, Love, Abundance, Prosperity" are in limited quantity. As if somehow, somewhere there a box of "Success" sitting in a corner holding the last few samples left, or as if they only made a certain amount for certain people. As if there is a pie with only a few slices and only one fl
~Attitude determines altitude. — Anonymous As we grow, so too does our journey. The distance, the height, the depth.... all of those things vary depending on what the world throws at us and how we respond to it. The peaks AND the valleys on our pathway to success cannot always be changed OR avoided, but our demeanor, our disposition and our conviction all play a part in us becoming the best version of who we intend to be. It is not always easy to maintain momentum, especiall
"The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." --Nelson Mandela I am a late bloomer. I grew up poor and in the hood. I was also afraid of everything. Well most things... but especially swimming. Wait... I need to be a little more accurate here so you will get the message. I had a terrible fear of drowning. Which was why I was afraid of swimming. 1+1= Kid logic.... That didn't really make things easy for especially growing up where the
Trybe... "Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly. Laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile…" ~JUVY ANN~ One of the funniest and most true statements I have read recently is: " Imma just get gas in the morning" is one of the worst decisions you can make as an adult. We make and break promises each and every day. Promises to others... promises to ourselves. We put off doing things as if we have all of the time in th
