Monday Motivation: “The Past Is History! Let Go and Let God”

Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing; Now it springs up; do you conceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland” -Isaiah 43:18-19

The past is history right? However, there are two reasons that we look back:

Dwelling–  Replaying situations over and over again to figure out  “WHY”. We desire closure in order to move on. Do we really need it though? Will you get the answers that you want? Will it help your healing/whole process? Dwelling doesn’t help you! It keeps you stuck in an experience that has past. You are choosing to reside in the past.

Deliverance–  This is when you look back and see how far you have come. Your growth, change, and forward focus was fueled by the lessons learned from your past. Deliverance is the action of being rescued or set free!

Set yourself free! Why are you letting your past incarcerate you? I have been there. I occasionally have to bail myself out of jail! I encourage you to look back and see your DELIVERANCE!

God is trying to do a new thing in you, but he can’t take you to greener pastures if you are dwelling on the past! LET GO AND LET GOD use your  past as evidence that he makes crooked paths straight! Let him use what the enemy tried to abuse!

I wish you all a prosperous and productive week!

Monday Motivation: “Take A Knee When You’re Injured”

“May the Lord answer you when you are in distress. May the name of the God of Jacob protect you.” -Psalm 20:1

You know it fascinates me when players get injured on the football field, opposing players take a knee. It is considered a sign of respect and concern when someone is hurt. We get injured physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally! It’s time to “take a knee.”

Life can consume you, and become a heavy weight. You don’t have to carry it by yourself! Who is on your medical staff when you are injured? I know someone who is on call 24/7. GOD.

God gave you vision, exercise it! Your eyesight can fool you into thinking that you can’t get past your injury. You see yourself limping, but God sees you walking!

Exercise: What are your injuries? Find a quiet place and write them down. The irony in this exercise is that these are the ways the enemy is attacking you. So what do you need to do? Construct your playbook! No fancy X’s, O’s or arrows. Lol. Your playbook will help you overcome the defensive line. There is a word for every injury.  Pull out your bible, open your bible app, and start constructing your playbook. YOU GOT THIS! You will see how your mind will shift from injured to healed, your TESTimony!

You are no longer injured! You just need a little physical therapy every once in a while! 🙂

I wish you all a prosperous and productive week!

XOXOXOX (Your Visionary In Charge, Regina)

Monday Motivation: “Don’t Let The Devil Disrupt What God Instructs”

Pictured above are three things: trees, a path, and what appears to be a s-shaped root covering a clear path…………..

“Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you” -Psalm 25:4-5

Now I am no biblical scholar by any means, but through much self-reflection I discovered this truth: God gives clear instructions, and the devil makes suggestions! The picture above depicts God’s plan and path for your life. The s-shaped root covering the clear path represents the MANY ways we stray from that path. You know, praying for a sign and then taking action ourselves instead of patiently waiting.

Gems and Gents, your purpose will be fulfilled if you listen to God’s instructions, and not fall victim to Satan’s (the enemy) suggestions. Satan has taken a peek into your future, and IT IS GREAT. Soooo what is his job: TO STEAL, KILL, AND DESTROY. He will suggest detours and recalculate your route to get you off course.

Pay attention, because his suggestions are subtle! Sometimes the fastest route isn’t always the best route.

I wish you all productive week Gems and Gents! May you accomplish EVERY goal you set for yourself this week!

Monday Motivation: The Pit Prepares You For The Peak

This mountain represents the pits and peaks we experience in life. I have had many pit and peek moments.  I will have more and so will you. The reality is that our pit experiences prepare us for our peak.

Your struggles, trials, obstacles, and challenges  have a way of molding you into the person you were created to be. I used to worry, panic, stress, and totally shutdown in my pit experiences. Those negative emotions crippled me. I was afraid to be the best version of myself. I was afraid to climb and obtain my “peak” moment.

Your pit experience could be the loss of a loved one, finances, job, relationship, health issues, loss of a business venture or a number of things! I could go on and on. Experience is defined as “an event or occurrence that leaves and impression on someone.” How you perceive that moment will determine how you work through that moment! Will some situations, circumstances, and events feel like the end of the world? ABSOLUTELY…You want to know the truth?…..IT’S NOT!

I encourage you to embrace your pit experiences because they prepare you for your peak! Every perceived failure that you may have had, I bet you learned something from it! So did you technically fail? No, Plan A just didn’t work. Time for plan B,C,D,E,F…. Allow your pit experiences to mold you into the King’s and Queen’s you were destined to be when you reach the peak of your mountain!

XOXOX

Monday Motivation: 3 Reasons You Can’t Stop

 

 

Miss me or Nah?

Yes, I saw Girls Trip. YES, IT WAS AMAZING. Ohh and I cut my hair! 

Heeeeeeeeeeey Gems and Gents! I have been so focused on slaying goals that I forgot to keep in touch with you wonderful people! Sooooooo, take a seat, kick back, and relax as I serve you the tea of my life!

Well, I got a life coach. WHHHHHHAAAAAAT! Yep, I sure did. I can’t inspire you to write your vision if I am not surrounding myself with wise counsel to hold me accountable for mine right? My sessions have been AMAZING! I didn’t realize how scatterbrained I was. Wait, is that a word? Hmm… let’s just say I had A LOT of ideas and things I wanted to accomplish in life that I needed to organize and prioritize. Pretty soon I will have my PhD (#ABossWithMoreStudentLoanDebt…SIGH), I’m researching distance learning jobs (the classroom is NOT my ministry), I have a new work assignment (#DCMetro), I’m conducting vision board workshops (#EnvisionYourVision), hanging out with gym (#IGotGainz),  and learning and loving me while preparing for Boaz (I am so serious about this one!). I think that’s it! LOL.

I hope and pray each of you are taking strategic steps to ensure your vision comes to fruition. Are you stuck? What do I need to do to get you out of that hole? I motivate, I encourage, and I am human. Just like you, I make mistakes. I fall down, but I get up. I sometimes give up, but then I lift up my head and recognize that I was created for a purpose. I have a divine ordered assignment to encourage you! I have a testimony that I will share at a later date! Stay tuned………………

Be encouraged Gems and Gents! There is King and Queen in you! Every test, trial, peak, and valley is building a foundation for you to stand firm on! A foundation on quicksand is NOT cute! Plus if you’re like me, you don’t like sand in your toes! Random, I know. I bet you laughed though. Hahahahahahaha…

Peace, love, and coconut oil! Holla at cha later peeps!

Monday Motivation: Your Board of Trustees

Happy Monday Gems and Gents! Now let’s kick this week off with a little Monday Motivation!

Pictured above is an empty boardroom. It is in rooms like this where key decisions are made on how to move forward, maintain current operations, or let people go. What does your boardroom look like? What key decisions have you made to move forward, maintain your current status, or let people go?

Now every company, has a “Board of Trustees” right? Now I want you to think about whether the individuals you have appointed to your “Board of Trustees” can be TRUSTED with your vision. Your vision is vital. If you have persons with eyesight on your board, they can hinder your progress. You see, people with eyesight can only see the current circumstances. Your vision goes beyond your current circumstances!

Examine your “Board of Trustees!”

XOXOXO

Monday Motivation: Be Patient, Don’t Settle

So, this past weekend I had the pleasure of attending a wedding in Chicago. I will sum the wedding up with one word: BEAUTIFUL. Like most weddings right? While catching up with old college friends, I was able to obtain a valuable pearl of wisdom. A friend said these words to my best friend and I: “You’re beautiful, intelligent women, don’t rush anything. Be patient. Don’t settle.” Now I have heard these words time and time again. It was in this moment that I actually took the time to sit back and really ponder over those words.

Pictured above is one of my favorite things to do at an amusement park. Ride roller coasters. WHOOOOOOOO! However, I see this roller coaster as a representation of the many things that I rushed to do because I was impatient. I would find myself upside down, taking sharp turns, and rolling down hills at high speeds. Patience was NOT my virtue. In the midst of making these impulse decisions, I settled and began to become complacent. I figured since no doors were being opened that maybe I reached the level of success that I was destined for, WRONG! While I enjoy the thrill of roller coasters, I don’t like the thrills that I have encountered in life due to being impatient and settling.

We all have a plan for our lives. We dream about success. We may even compare ourselves to others and what we see on television. What we don’t see is the process. We see the finished product! Your process is different. You were built different. So instead of hopping on the roller coaster to enjoy the thrills of life, BE PATIENT, DON’T SETTLE. The ride will definitely be much smoother.

Until next Monday Gems and Gents. Write Your Vision! If you can see it, you better believe it, and take the steps to achieve it!

XOXO

Monday Motivation: Good Vibes

You see I love positive people. As a matter fact, I TRY to be one of them on a daily basis. I have my trials, this motivational blog is one of them, but at the end of the day I remain optimistic. If I give into the negativity, I will NEVER know my full potential. This blog will become a household name in the future, BET THAT!

I have had set back after set back, but I still choose to stay positive because I know that one day, my breakthrough is coming! Is it hard, ABSOLUTELY! Some days I wake up just wanting to succumb to defeat and eat Talenti Ice Cream (don’t judge me…Lol), but I can’t and neither can you! The path to achieving your goals will not be easy, but it will be worth it!

So, I challenge you to channel and embrace GOOD VIBES! Turn on your favorite song, dance like a mad woman or man, laugh, and have a good ol time!

Need some suggestions…..click the link below for an oldie but goodie!

Monday Motivation: If The Shoe Fits…….

Now I seriously don’t know the lady pictured above, but clearly her shoe game is on “fleek” as the young people say or did they leave that in 2016?

Looking at this picture you see a woman trying on shoes. I see a women in search of the perfect fit. The many shoes you see above can represent the many opportunities that we come across in life. Not every opportunity is a “perfect fit” for us. I learned this the hard way creating this reference website. I just wanted to make money by any means necessary. I signed up to get paid through Google Ads, Amazon, T-shirt deals and absolutely NONE of them were a fit for my brand. Lesson learned right…..

As you Write Your Vision and create actions steps to ensure that it comes to fruition, opportunities will present themselves. Does it align with your brand? Is it necessary? What are the potential costs/benefits? If these shoes fit, then wear them. If not, try on another pair. Your opportunities are endless…..

Happy Monday Gems and Gents
