Speak Life

I know it has been a minute since I’ve posted.  Most of you know I run a girls enrichment program and we are full steam ahead with planning and prepping for this year’s participants.  We held interviews over the weekend and we had the opportunity to welcome 24 girls into program.  I’m pretty excited about that.

On another note, if you follow me on any of my social media sites: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, GooglePlus, you have seen my Morning Declarations that I post each morning.  However, if we aren’t connected, you may have missed them so I figured I would share some of my declarations with you.  As you know I am a huge proponent of speaking life and not death into you, your family, your situation.  When all hell seems to be breaking loose around you, what you speak and what you think determine what you do and how you respond.

Remember, self talk is HUGE… what you say to and about yourself speaks so much louder than what others say to and about you.  So if you are like me and some days you wake up not feeling your best — YES… even I have those days more than you can imagine, you need something that will give you a little kick in the butt.  I have my affirmations/declarations on my iPhone in my notes so I can carry them around with me everywhere I go.  Some people write them in a notebook, others make signs and tape them in different places in their homes.  It doesn’t really matter where they are so long as you are saying them daily and sometimes multiple times daily.

For the daily posts I make, I encourage my readers to say it 7 times.  No rhyme or reason other than it’s my favorite number and God’s number of perfection and completion.  So after reading this post, you may want to print these out and post them somewhere so you can say them 7 times DAILY throughout the day.  In order to transform your mind and your mouth, you must renew it daily and repetitiously.

So here are a few of the favorites…. Feel free share them and tag me on any of my social media pages.

I will not let fear paralyze me. I will take ACTION! iMove

I will accept the perfection o my imperfections. I don’t have to be Perfect! iAccept.

If you enjoy my morning declarations, be on the look out for my newest coaching program on affirmations and declarations. Isn’t it time you started speaking life instead of death? Sign up for my e-newsletter at www.trueheartspeaks.com to be the first to know when it launches.

Until next time….

Take the first step — TODAY!

Take the First Step TODAY

Here we are at the last and third of the three points I shared on the New Year New You 2014 Tele-Event.  Just as a recap,  the first point I shared with the women to help them live in and on purpose was to Do it Afraid.  At some point in our lives, we get to a place were we can no longer let fear get in the way of purpose and destiny.  Then I encouraged you to ‘Stop living for them and start living for YOU!’ You can not and will not be who and what God has called you to be if you continue to be what and who ‘they’ want you to be.  When you finally come to that fork in the road where you know that it’s time to walk in your uniqueness and  ‘differentness’ you need to make sure the path you take is the path designed for you by God NOT by others.

Now as we transition to the last step I gave, in order for you to do it afraid, and start living for you, you MUST take the first step TODAY!  YES… do something.

new-year-started

Most times we are waiting for the right time but that day will never come if you don’t take the first step.  I saw a sign that said ‘you can’t wait for all of the lights to turn green because they never will.’  I’m not sure who said it but it’s true.  Waiting for the perfect time to start means you will be waiting forever.  In his book, “In a pit with a lion on a snowy day,” Mark Batterson says,

‘that taking no risks is the greatest risk of all.’

He later goes on to say,

‘What sets lion chasers apart isn’t the outcome.  It’s the courage to chase God-sized dreams.  Lion chasers don’t let their fear or doubts keep them from doing what God has called them to do…. I’m absolutely convinced that our greatest regrets in life will be missed opportunities.’

You see the reason you haven’t taken the first step may not be because you are waiting for things to be perfect (or maybe it is) but that’s just the excuse that you use.  Things will never be perfect even when you get a rhythm going once you get started.  Things happen and life happens.  So expecting things to be perfect just sets you up for even more disappointment.  So let that go!  However let’s get back to what you are really covering up and deal with why you haven’t started.

Could it be that you are afraid… YES.. AFRAID…

  • afraid of failing
  • afraid of what ‘they’ might have to say about you venturing out to do something they ‘dream’ about doing but won’t attempt
  • afraid of disappointing people and yourself
  • afraid it won’t work
  • afraid it may work
  • afraid that if you quit your job and it doesn’t work, you don’t have anything to fall back on
  • afraid that the voice you hear and the tug you feel really isn’t from God

Believe me I’ve been there and once I told myself (well actually it was God) that if I didn’t try I would never know.  I took the first step. That’s right… in order to find out if it will or won’t work, you have to take the first step and you have to take it TODAY!

You will not become an expert overnight.  It takes time but it will never happen until you take the first step.  Think about it about it this way…

“The expert in anything was once a novice or a beginner.”

BBwQGTnCUAAvwFA.jpg-large

The more risks and steps you take, the easier it becomes.  Moving in spite of how you feel is called faith and faith is what drives fear right out of the way.  With each step you take, each day you build your faith and minimize your fear.  The only reason fear has so much power is because it’s what you are giving the most attention.  You’ve heard me say this (or read it it previous blog posts) what you feed grows.  If you feed fear… it will continue to paralyze and assassinate your dreams, purpose, goals and aspirations.  But when you feed faith… My GOD!  That’s when things start to happen.

Just put one foot in front of the other and take it one day, one step, one minute and one second at a time.  It’s the exact way you would eat an elephant… one bit at a time.  Maybe you’ve never heard of that before but when my coaching clients are having a hard time accomplishing BIG GOD-sized dreams and goals I ask them… how do you eat an elephant?  Either I get this strange silence on the other end of the phone or I get strange looks… because at first they aren’t sure how you would tackle something so huge. But then when I share that the answer is one bite at a time… they all say… ooooohhhhhh it makes sense now.

So here’s your assignment, think about that one goal, dream or vision (just one for now because I don’t want to overwhelm you) and ask yourself what one thing can I do today.  Then I want you to write it down and then I want you to GET YOUR BUTT MOVING!  It’s just that simple, I don’t want you to overthink it.  What one thing can you do today?  Once you’ve figured it out– DO IT!  Then share it with me below in the comments section. I want to be able to help cheer you on as you push into purpose!

Don’t wait another day. Take the first step… TODAY!

Until next time….

Choose to live in and on purpose!

Hugs…

Stop living for ‘them’ & START living for YOU.

StopThemStartYou

So this is the second of a three-part series on how to live in and on purpose.  In my last post, I shared with you how to Do It Afraid as one of the first steps I shared on the New Year New You 2014 Tele-event at the beginning of the year.  This post I will be sharing how to start living for you instead of them and how to be true to you.  So many people make decisions based on the response or feedback of other people.  They do something because others are doing it or they don’t do it because others are not doing it.  Others base their decisions and life’s purpose on the fear of rejection from others.

If this is you, then it’s time for you to start living for you instead of for them: let go of those people, place and things that have hindered you from living in and on purpose.  You have to get to a place where you do things not for the approval of others but because you know it is what God has instructed you to do.  Every thing God gives you won’t be popular, like-able or received by those in your circle but you have to move forward anyway.

My question for you is —

  • Are you living or just existing?  
  • Are you living for them or for you?
  • Are you being true to you?

strikingtruths_live-for-yourself1

“It is easy to live for others, everybody does. I call on you to live for yourself.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Listen, you will never be who God purposed for you to be until you let go of whom others expect you to be.  Much of my life was based on what my parents wanted me to do.  Now don’t get me wrong. I loved dancing and performing as well as competing in pageants, but there came a time when I felt as if it more for them instead of for me.  I will share more later in this post, but when we talk about living for you instead of living for them, make sure you are clear that it isn’t you who is holding you up instead of them.  Be sure you aren’t using ‘them‘ as the reason why you haven’t taken action, when in fact it’s not because of them, but because of YOU… your fear, your doubts, your insecurities.

February is Black History Month but it is also the month of love. This month as African Americans, Black Americans, Americans of African Descent, or whomever you consider yourself to be, I encourage you to take a really good look in the mirror and make sure that you are being true to who you were created to be. So many times we try to be who other people want us to be or who we ‘think’ others want us to be so we hide who we really are. In 2014, it is time to stop trying to keep up with the jones’, it is time to stop trying to impress people we don’t like or live with things we can’t afford or don’t want.  I am challenging you this year to live according to mantra: ‘to thine own self be true.’

For years I competed in pageants and did very well. Always winning a title or placing in the top 3, 5 or 10; however there was always one struggle. I never felt allowed to be who I really was. At that time (over 10 years ago), there was always a ‘pageant’ answer or a ‘pageant’ look I was supposed to adhere to (according to my mom and my pageant coach) and at times it became very frustrating internally because it conflicted with who I knew God created me to be. So after 8+ years of competing, I left that world to venture out to be, do & have what was true to me. I started living for me instead of ‘them.’ The journey hasn’t been easy but today as a life coach and professional speaker who operates in my areas of strength, I can say I am on my own ‘to thine own self be true’ journey.

What about you? Can you say the same? Are you living someone else’s dreams? Are you working a job you aren’t happy with? Are you in a relationship that doesn’t allow you to be you? Are you doing things just to keep up or just because it is the popular thing to do? Are you living more for them instead of living for you?

Well I am here to tell you to STOP IT!

It is time for you to take a good look in the mirror, get naked and unapologetic with yourself.  It is time for you to venture out on your own ‘to thine own self be true’ journey.

Not only just for Black History Month, but I implore you my beautiful black brothers and sisters to embrace your beautiful black skin, hair and features everyday.  The same goes for my beautiful non-black brothers and sisters. Never settle for less than what is due to you? Don’t get into a relationship or go out on a date for ‘Valentine’s Day‘ just because you are ‘lonely’ or don’t want to be the only one ‘without’ someone. Love you for you. Live for you. This is what being true to thine own self is all about — living in & on purpose and living for you instead of them. Doing what’s not popular but what’s good for you. Being intentional about your success (however you define it), your happiness, your health, your faith, your career, your relationships and your life.

YOUR TURN… I encourage you to take some time to journal and write down whether you have really been true to you or just living for others and their approval. Trust me the only approval you need is from the one who created you, God. Here are some questions to think about:

  • Am I really being true to myself?
  • If no, what changes do I need to make?
  • If yes, how can I continue to be true to myself and not be influenced by the varied changes in life and the world around me?
  • Am I allowing people, places and things to influence and change me?
  • If so, what people, places, & things do I need to get rid of or remove myself from to be in a place where I can start being true to me and living for me instead of them?
  • What does ‘to thine own self be true’ really mean to me?

Choose to live in and on purpose…

Hugs…

Do it Afraid

Do It Afraid

At the beginning of the year, I had the opportunity to share as one of four guest speakers for a Tele-Event entitled “New Year New You 2014.” My topic was about how to live in and on purpose.  As I prepared for the call, I asked God what He would have me to share with the women on the call and He gave me three points, the first of which was DO IT AFRAID.  I will share the other two in the weeks to come.

I received such awesome feedback that I figured I would share with you in more detail what I shared on the call to help you jumpstart 2014 so you can start living in and on purpose.

When we talk about doing it afraid, it means feel the fear and do it anyway.  So many times we let fear be the very thing that keeps us from the greatness that is waiting for us.  I am here to tell you to STOP IT!  It is time for you to start doing it afraid.

DO NOT let fear be the only factor that determines your decisions.  Do not let fear be the deciding factor for how you pursue purpose.  Remember that What You Feed Expands.  So my question to you is what are you feeding?  Your faith? Or your fear?

If you are feeding your fear, it will continue to expand, but if you are feeding your faith, then that is what will expand.  I believe that we have to get to a place where we intentionally minimize those things that would cause our fear to grow even if that means doing it afraid.  The more you press through fear in to faith and action, the less of an impact it has on you.

There is an infographic I’ve seen numerous times that says “the phrase ‘DO NOT BE AFRAID’ is written in the bible 365 times. That’s a daily reminder from God to live everyday being fearless.”

404047_273837856049110_2005905633_n[1]

If Do Not Be Afraid is listed in the bible 365 times, then that is a hint that maybe, just maybe, you need to start focusing less on your fears and more on what God instructs you to do and that is to NOT BE AFRAID.  Now let’s be realistic here, even I get afraid.  Shoot we all get afraid.  I get nervous.  I over think things.  I even sometimes try to talk myself out of doing certain things until I hear that still small voice tell me DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT… JUST DO IT. That’s when in spite of my fears, my insecurities, my doubts or whatever else I may be feeling or thinking, I do what I’ve been instructed to do.

Is it always easy to do it afraid? NO.  Will you second guess yourself, while doing it afraid?  YES. But will it be worth it? ABSOLUTELY!  Doing what you know in your heart of hearts to do isn’t always easy.  It’s takes guts, it takes passion and it takes drive.  If you spend time feeding your faith, it makes the journey just a little bit easier.  In addition to feeding your faith, you also need to get moving.  Taking massive action minimizes the level of fear you feel as you continue to keep moving.  This is why I say you have to do it afraid.  To DO is a verb, which means you need to be in action, doing something.  

The reason your fear has been so rampant in your mind and your life is because you aren’t doing anything or the things you are doing are feeding your fears instead of your faith.  Just in case you didn’t know FAITH is also a verb and it only works when you work it.  Are you willing to work your faith?  Are you willing to put your faith into action?  Are you willing to take massive action in the direction of your dreams, goals, aspirations and purpose?

I sure hope so.

Isn’t it time you starting doing it afraid?

I say YES…

So get moving!

Mind Over Matter Monday – Motivational Minute 404

It’s Mind Over Matter Monday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is..

Think about what you think about!

On this Mind Over Matter Monday, are the things you think about really the things you should be thinking about each day?  Do you think about ideas, events, or people? Is your thinking and are your thoughts great, average or small (mediocre)?  Be honest with yourself and take a long hard look at your thoughts.  How you think determines what you do, who you say and how you live?  No need in thinking small or average, it’s time to think BIG!  You were created with a GREAT MIND, but my question to you is…. ARE YOU PUTTING IT TO GREAT USE!

Donald Trump says “Since you going to think, you might as well THINK BIG!”

YOUR TURN… on this Mind Over Matter, tell me … what’s one area of your life that you know you need to start the habit of GREAT thinking?  Why haven’t you been thinking BIG and GREAT?  What’s been holding you back?  Identify it and let it go!

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Fearless Friday – Motivational Minute 370

It’s Fearless Friday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Stop being afraid of the greatness that God has placed inside of you.  I believe that you could be part of a group of people who aren’t fearful of anyone but yourself.  You know there’s something BIG waiting to come out but you won’t walk in the fullness of who God created you to be because you don’t know where the road will lead.  Surrender to the knowledge that says all things work together for your good and that you serve a God who is able to do EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY above anything you can ever ask or think!

Be Fearless and Surrender to God and Surrender to your GREATNESS!    

The world is waiting on YOU!

 

YOUR TURN… on this Fearless Friday, tell me what about your greatness scares you?  How has fear paralyzed you from operating in your greatness?  Could it be that YOU are what’s really holding you back? What are you REALLY afraid of?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Serenity Saturday – Motivational Minute 364

It’s Serenity Saturday!!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Just say NO! — That’s right it’s just that simple today.

Many times our level of stress and anxiety is increased because we don’t know how to say NO.  We keep piling things on top of each other and adding more and more to our plate without ever resting or taking time for ourselves.  If our creator was smart enough to rest on the 7th day after working for 6 days, then why on earth can’t we learn to rest.  Sometimes the only way you can rest and take time for yourself, is to say NO.  Self-Care is so important if you desire to be available for those you care about.  You can only give what you have and if you don’t have it, what are actually giving?

Take some time to put YOU first. 

Do something for YOU.

Take care of YOU. 

 

YOUR TURN… on this Serenity Saturday, tell me when you have had to say NO to others to say YES to yourself?  If you are having a hard time saying no, share why you have difficulty in this area.  What type of support would you need to be more proactive in your efforts to saying NO to others so you can say YES to yourself?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Here’s to you living life IN & On Purpose…

Fearless Friday – Motivational Minute 363

It’s Fearless Friday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is…

Lose so you can Win!  

I know you are probably saying WHAT?  Well I was watching American Idol yesterday and Fantasia sang a song on the show that said ‘Sometimes you have to lose so you can win again.’  Those words immediately spoke to me.  I don’t know about you but I have had a few loses in my life that have lead to BIG wins.  However when they first occurred, I wasn’t so sure.  Maybe you are going through some thing or maybe things aren’t turning out quite the way you thought.  Well I am here to tell you that sometimes you have to lose to win.  Don’t let fear of the unknown keep you locked in a box that you were never supposed to be in.

Be Fearless | Break the mold | LET GO of yesterday | EMBRACE today | So you can WIN tomorrow.

YOUR TURN… on this Fearless Friday, take a moment to let me know what you know you need to ‘lose’ in order to WIN.  What and/or who do you know in your heart of hearts you need to walk away from.

Share your thoughts below in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Here’s to you living life IN & On Purpose…
