Speak Life Tele-Class – Early Bird Registration ENDS TODAY!

Hey TrueheartSpeaks family,

You may or may not know but I will be hosting a LIVE Tele-Class next Tuesday, April 29th from 6:30pm-8:30pm.  It’s entitled Speak Life: Creating the Life YOU Love with the Words YOU Speak.

trueheartfacebookheaders-03

I want to share part of the message I shared with my TrueheartSpeaks mailing list family yesterday.  BTW, if you have yet to subscribe to the TrueheartSpeaks E-Zine & Free Monthly Life Purpose Coaching Calls, CLICK HERE to sign up now.

If you follow me at all, whether here on my blog, via my website, or on any of my social media pages, you know that I am very adamant about using the power of our words to create what we desire.  I’ve written a few bog posts on it and it is even included as a key component in many of my coaching programs, products and services.  Well over the past couple of months,  I really started noticing a pattern when having conversations with clients.

  • They were stuck, stagnant and feeling very stalled in life.
  • They weren’t happy with the way things were going in their lives personally and/or professionally.
  • Actually some were happy but things still seemed to stay the same in spite of efforts to go the the next level.
  • They comfortable and complacent.

You want to know what that pattern was that I noticed?  I figured you would want to know.

Well it was in their language.  

  • It was a self-defeated type of talk.  
  • It was a I want more and I want better but I don’t want to say anything just in case it doesn’t happen type of talk.  
  • It was a things are going really good but I’ve seemed to plateau and I’m not sure how to break through this ‘glass ceiling’ type of talk.  

You see how you speak about yourself tells me tons about how you see your life and your future.  

REGISTER NOW!

Some of you say you believe it but your words don’t line up.  If you know anything about me you know that the things that have manifested in my life have not only been because of the vision that God has given me but also because I lined up my words with where I desired to be rather than where I was.  When I started my girls not for profit, the Young Miss Buffalo Pageant: Scholarship & Enrichment Program, Inc., 14 years ago, people will tell you that they remember me talking about what I was doing, how it looked, the layout of the program, etc. Even back then I understood the power of words and speaking things into existence.

Ok so, let me ask you this…

Are you talking ‘this‘ level talk when you should be talking ‘next‘ level talk?

Maybe you aren’t speaking death but maybe you are speaking comfort and complacency.  It is said that indecision is still making a decision, so since we are talking about speaking…. not saying anything is just as bad as speaking negative things over you, those around you and your circumstances.

I have so much to share with you and I believe that there are so many people who need to know that what you say is just as important as what you think. What you think and SAY determines what you do.  That’s why I’m inviting you to join me next Tuesday.  Listen, if anything I’ve said resonates with you, do not wait another minute overthinking yourself out of something that could change your life.  

REGISTER NOW!  

You have until next week to register however, you do not have until next week to get in at the Early Bird Rate of $27.00.  After TODAY it goes up to $47.00.  Yes…. for two hours and $27.00 you get me pouring into you and from tomorrow until next Tuesday, it goes up to the regular registration rate of $47.00.

REGISTER NOW!

Now maybe you are saying Detra, I really want to be there and I know this message is for me, but I can’t make it.  I have another commitment… well guess what!  If you can’t make it, NO WORRIES!! — Register Now… and once it’s done, the mp3 recording and the worksheets will be emailed to you afterwards so you can listen and do the work at your leisure.  But TRUST ME… you do not want to miss this.

Life is short… don’t wake up this Wednesday or next, saying woulda, coulda, shoulda… It’s time to do something you’ve never done in order to have what you’ve never had.  If what you are doing isn’t working, try something else.

I can’t wait to ‘see’ you on the SPEAK LIFE Tele Class call next week!

PS… look out for this week’s blog post!

Until next time….

Choose to live in and on purpose!

Hugs…

Let Yourself Off The Hook

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. ~2 Corinthians 12:9

Slide1

Click here if you would rather LISTEN to this week’s article.

As I look over my life and all of the awesome things I have accomplished, I am reminded that while so many people look at those ‘things’ or those ‘accomplishments’ and think that life is perfect for me, it isn’t all roses and berries.  It really isn’t and I imagine the same goes for you. Where people see you as this great person and sometimes forget that in all of the great things you do, you are still human.  WE are still human.  We make mistakes, we have shortcomings, we want to quit, we want to just put our heads under the covers and not come out for about a week.

I know … me too.

But as I was thinking about what to share with you this week, I was running a recent conversation hubby and I had through my mind and thought about the many people who have similar feelings of feeling like sometimes you can’t really let your hair down because of all of the expectations that others have on you.  It gets stressful trying to live up to certain standards when sometimes you just want to scream and run and hide.  Believe me I’ve been there.  Part of who I am now has evolved from being who and what others wanted me to be to focusing on who God has called me to be and trusting that in spite of all of my mishaps, mistakes and shortcomings, He has called me anyway.  The same goes for you too!

Now maybe this isn’t your story, maybe you don’t have a lot going on and you just feel like where you are and who you are isn’t enough.  You feel like you need to be stronger, you need to have more accomplishments, more notches on your belt or whatever.  Well I am here to tell you that whether you have lots going on or not enough… to let yourself off the hook.  As the scripture above says, God’s power is sufficient for you. For HIS power is made perfect in your weakness.  How awesome is that to know that when the world and society, and tv and magazines say you have to be perfect, God says it is in your weaknesses that His power is made perfect.

It is in your inabilities that God’s abilities can shine through. (you can tweet this)

Let yourself off the hook.  Stop trying to be someone or something you are not.  Stop trying to compete with and keep up with the Joneses. As one of my fav financial gurus, Dave Ramsey, says, stop buying things that you can’t afford to impress people you don’t even like. 🙂 Heck stop buying things you can’t afford to impress people you do like.  If people only like and associate with you because of the car you drive, the position or title you hold, the size of your house and all of the name brand ‘this’ and ‘that’ you have, than it’s a superficial relationship and you need to let it go.  You need people in your life who can love you when your poor and love you when your rich, who love you when you have and when you don’t have.  Those are the essential relationships you need in your life.  People who won’t lie to you but will tell you the truth about yourself when you need to hear it.

Let yourself off of the hook. It’s ok that you haven’t always lived a perfect life. We have ALL done things we are not proud of which is why God’s word is clear that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory.  We have all made mistakes that we wish we could take back.  Ask for God’s forgiveness and then forgive yourself.

Let yourself off the hook. We all have moments when what we see in the mirror isn’t as fit, beautiful, smart, wise, fabulous, prayerful, health-conscious, outgoing, motivated, confident, brave, daring and fearless person we know we can be or would like to be.  So here’s your reality, you were made just right. You were fearfully and wonderfully made.  You were made in the image of a God who created you to be perfect through weakness in HIS strength and power.  All you need is in HIM.  It is in him we live, move and have our being.  Stop downing yourself. Stop self-sabotaging everything you do.  Stop letting people speak negative instead of positive into you.  Start speaking life over yourself and most importantly…

LET YOURSELF OFF THE HOOK…

  • you will make mistakes
  • you will fall short
  • you will disappoint yourself every now and then
  • you will have loss
  • you will have days when you second guess yourself
  • you will have days when it all seems to be falling apart
  • you will have days when you know in your heart of hearts you didn’t give it your all
  • you will sin
  • you will feel sucky and yucky

I could go on but I won’t…. you get the point…

BUT guess what… it doesn’t have to stay that way.  As you know I teach you to have your moment… so have the moment. But don’t stay in the moment.  Learn from the moment. Deal with it don’t run from it.  But also know that it will be in your weakness, your ability to be transparent with yourself and all that is good and bad, and your humanness where God will be able to show up and show his strength in your weakness.  So whoever told you that weak people are suckas… doesn’t really know God and never really let their weakness be what God uses to show His purpose.  Don’t let your pride keep you from allowing God to be who and what he is … GOD!

Let yourself off the hook, if God isn’t expecting you to be perfect, neither am I.

Until next time….

Choose to live in and on purpose!

Hugs…

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

Slide1

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

Slide1

I am WORTHY & I am WORTH IT!

Slide1

I will try something new TODAY. iTry

Slide1

Purpose is in the PRESS, therefore I PUSH into purpose. iPush

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….

You are What you Speak

Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.
(Proverbs 18:21)
1235064_519554508118811_1593967139_n
Let’s talk a little about what you talk about.  What do you say to yourself when no one is looking?  Do you affirm yourself?  Are you your biggest cheerleader?  Do you have great and awesome things to say about yourself?  OR do you down yourself?  Do you talk negatively and pessimistically about yourself?  Do you doubt everything you do or try to do?  You’d be amazed at the number of people who shy away from the question: So tell me about yourself?  Because they worry too much about what other people are going to think about them, they dumb down who they are, they’re accomplishments, and what makes them so fabulous.  I’ve seen it and, at time or another, I have done it.  Why is that?  Well I think part of it is not to seem too overconfident or conceited, or boastful.  But most times it’s none of that, it’s because we haven’t been taught that it’s ok to be proud of yourself and what you’ve accomplished or what you desire to accomplish. 
How you speak to yourself depends on what manifests.  Sometimes we say to ourselves what others have said to us and take those statements as our own.  Now if you’ve got someone in your corner who’s your biggest cheerleader even when you don’t believe in you, then that’s GREAT.   However, most times it will be all in what you think, say and do.  You start with shifting your mindset and how you think.  Next you start changing the way to you talk to and about yourself. Last, you move into what you do and how you do it. These three things if mastered over time, could change your life.  Keep in mind that in order to have something you’ve never had, you must do something you’ve never done.  If you keep doing (saying) the same things, you will ALWAYS get the same results.  The crazy thing is we expect to get different results by doing (saying) the same things, thinking that something magical or mysterious will take place.  NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!
So let me ask you again…what do you say to yourself when no one is around? How do you speak to yourself?  Do you love on you or do you minimize you? I mean really … think about for a minute. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.  Whatever is inside you is whatever will come out.  Therefore you have be INTENTIONAL and ON PURPOSEnot ACCIDENTAL about what you deposit within.In her book Commanding Your Morning, Dr. Cindy Trimm says, “All you are, experience, and ultimately achieve can be traced back to how you have made use of these two simple, yet vastly powerful tools — your words and thoughts.”  She goes on to say, “All that you will ever be or accomplish hinges on how you choose to govern what comes out of your mouth.  By what you allow to occupy your mind and mouth, you can either bless your life to great heights of success or send it orbiting into realms of failure, sadness and discontentment.“Now this is powerful because many of us just talk not even paying attention to what we say.  We say things and have no clue how the very words we speak are affecting us at that very moment and are creating our future with the words we release. Know this…. where you are today is the result of the thoughts you had from a year ago or even two years ago. This also applies to what you say. If you are going to accomplish those BIG goals you desire to accomplish, you are going to have to shift not only your thinking but also what you speak at each level you ascend to.  YES … you don’t just stay at the same place, you move up as you accomplish each goal and in order for you to do so, you can’t say things like…

  • Oh I’ll never be able to do that
  • It’s too hard
  • It worked for Amy because we are different …  she’s better at — than I am.
  • I never meant to go any further than where I am now
  • I don’t really desire it (you may not say this verbally but you’re thinking it)
  • I’m not qualified
  • I don’t have enough experience
  • What this… this is nothing (stop minimizing your greatness, desires and abilities)
  • I’ll just make due
  • There’s isn’t anything special about me
  • Who would buy this from me
  • Who would read my book
  • Why do I even bother exercising, it isn’t working
  • Are you sure you have the right person God? (lol)
Again… I could go on, but the bottom line is this, you have stop cutting your feet from under you (something the ole folks used to say).  It basically means stop halting and hindering your own success.  If you cut your feet, you can’t move.  Your doubts, insecurities, worries and fears have manifested into your everyday conversation.  Your conversation is mediocre at best, not exceptional nor breathe-taking.  When you speak you should take your breath away.  Your words have power, so USE THEM to YOUR ADVANTAGE.  What you say to yourself should be so powerful that for one split second you think about taking it back, BUT YOU DON’T.
After today how will you begin to monitor what you say to yourself?
It’s time you started DECLARING, PRONOUNCING, AND PROCLAIMING what you want to see come to pass in your life and your business.  You may or may not know, but affirmations are HUGE nowadays.  Powerhouses like Dr. Wayne Dyer, Anthony Robbins, Oprah Winfrey, Mary Kay Ash, Lisa Nichols, and so many others have used affirmations to speak life and increase into their personal and professional lives.  They, and so many others, have used affirmations and declarations to start, guide, end their day.  The power of affirmations, positive or negative, is so strong that when you begin to say something over and over again, you actually start to believe it.  This is why you have to be very careful what you say to yourself about yourself.  It is also important to have your own personal affirmations because there may come a time when your mentor, BFF or whomever you call for inspiring words may not be available and you will have to reach deep down into your bag of affirmations and pull one or two or three out.
If you need to master what you say to yourself, join me this Thursday for this month’s motivational coaching call at 8pm as we will dig deeper into this topic.  Learn how to speak life into the dead places in your life.  REGISTER NOW: http://bit.ly/10AfJmyHere’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…DetraDetra M.
