JOIN THE MOVEMENT2Join the A.S.P.I.R.E Movement and Live!

Several months ago, I watched a TED Talk titled, “Try Something New for 30 Days,” by Matt Cutts. During his talk, Matt shared with the audience that several years ago he felt like he was stuck in a rut and decided to try something new for 30 days. Matt makes a great point by saying, “I guarantee you the next 30 days are going to pass whether you like it or not, so why not think about something you have always wanted to try and give it a shot for the next 30 days.”

Matt’s video has inspired me to start a movement that will profoundly change people’s lives and help them A.S.P.I.R.E. Let me ask you, “How do you eat an elephant?” Yes, I know you already know the answer, “one bite at a time.” Why not apply the same concept to your life? So, I ask you, “How can you create the life you want and deserve?” Here’s the answer: “30 days at a time.” Hurry and read the rest of the post 🙂

A Moment of Transparency #2: We Must ASPIRE to Compassion!

image_pdf

AFF88 I will be a source of courage, compassion, empathy and connection toDear Friends:

This morning my heart is heavy, as I contemplate the future of a young 13-year girl I met a few days ago and her one month old baby. In a few hours, she will be boarding a plane to join her father in Florida. While looking into her eyes, I told her how special she is and that her baby is a gift. I reminded her that she is not her mistakes and to not blame herself for the decisions she has made; but to learn the lessons and move forward. I shared with her the challenges and rewards she would experience as a mother.

Furthermore, we talked about the importance of her valuing and honoring herself and her body; and that she is a gift to any man lucky enough to have her. We talked about the importance of dealing with her pain; becoming emotionally and spiritually healthy and her priorities as a mother.  Additionally, I stressed the importance of her finding a support group that can help nurture her along her journey and provide emotional support. Immediately, my heart began to cry out as I thought about the reality of what I asked her to obtain for herself. Who can she really count on? Who will mentor and guide her? Who’s going to step up in this young girl’s life, and be there for her and her baby? Who will remind her of how special she is and cultivate the greatness that resides within her?  I am trusting God to open a few doors for her in Florida. What burdens me is the millions of young girls that require the same level of support.

If Today Were the Last Day of Your Life, How Would You Want to Live?

If today were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are doing today?  If the answer to this question has been NO for several weeks, several months or several years, then it’s time for you to make a change.

We often say that life is so short. Yet, we spend our time as if we’re going to live forever.  If you are not doing what you love, you are wasting time.  Steve Jobs understood the importance of living each day as if it were you last.

What Energy Sources Are You Plugged Into To Ensure Your Success?

image_pdf

the idea!What energy sources do you plug into to ensure you are functioning properly and living a life of purpose?

An incandescent light bulb’s sole purpose is to bring illumination. It has the ability to lighten up a dark room and further brighten a lit room. The only way the bulb can achieve its purpose, is to be plugged into an energy source – a functioning electrical outlet. When an electrical current passes through the wire, it causes the wire to heat. The wire, or filament, gets so hot that it glows and gives off light. Unless the light bulb is plugged into an outlet, it will cease to function. If it is plugged into a faulty outlet, it will function improperly. Meaning, it may illuminate, but not to the extent for which it was designed.

Some of you may feel that you are not “functioning” properly. In some cases, you may feel as if you’re malfunctioning. Like the light bulb, to function properly, you must get plugged into positive energy sources!

For each person, these positive energy sources will differ. However, I believe for people aspiring to live a life of greatness, there are some key things you must plug into. Here are four things to consider: Hurry and read the rest of the post 🙂

BLOG TALK RADIO SHOW: Are You Living Your Core Values?

image_pdf

BTR 2

CALLING ALL LADIES!

Have you identified your core values?

Is your life and core values in alignment?

Are you “consciously” living “your” core values?

“When you achieve complete congruence between your values and your goals, like a hand in a glove, you feel strong, happy, healthy, and fully integrated as a person. You develop a kind of courage that makes you completely unafraid to make decisions and take action. Your whole life improves when you begin living your life by the values that you most admire.”~Brian Tracy

To truly live a life of fulfillment, harmony, meaning, satisfaction and greatness, one must be true to themselves by honoring their core values. Have you identified your core values? Are you living a life aligned with your values?

Your values are your guiding principles, the things that mean the most to you. Like a compass, your values dictate the choices you make and determines your life’s direction. 

Your core values must be the driving force in your life.  We all have and live by values, the question is: “Are you consciously living core values “you” have chosen to help you live your best life now? Many people are not consciously aware that they are living values inherited from their parents and/or have adopted values based on societal influences, that are NOT serving them.  It’s time to live your life on purpose.

Please join me and my co-host Sandra Haynes Sawyer as we discuss the importance of identifying and consciously living your core values, on Saturday, May 18 from 10:00 AM -10:30 AM EST.

We look forward to you tuning in, “For Such A Time As This!

BLOG TALK RADIO SHOW: The Power of Meditation

image_pdf

Woman Placing Palms TogetherTHANK YOU LADIES!

To everyone who tuned into our show The Power of Meditation,” on Saturday, April 20 at 10:00 AM, we would like to say thank you. This show concludes our series on “How To Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind for Success.”

Why Meditate?

This quote explains it well.

“Meditation practice is like piano scales, basketball drills, ballroom dance class. Practice requires discipline; it can be tedious; it is necessary. After you have practiced enough, you become more skilled at the art form itself. You do not practice to become a great scale player or drill champion. You practice to become a musician or athlete. Likewise, one does not practice meditation to become a great meditator. We meditate to wake up and live, to become skilled at the art of living.”~Elizabeth Lesser

Meditation is a powerful tool that provides many benefits.  Here are a few reasons to practice daily meditation: Hurry and read the rest of the post 🙂

Summon The Courage To Dream Again!

image_pdf

Dream Again“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” T.E. Lawrence

Like many of you, in my childhood I dreamed many dreams.  Many of them were extraordinary and seemed impossible.  The more my imagination grew, the bigger my dreams grew.  As children, we had an amazing ability to look fear in the face and laugh at it.  In fact, we dared fear to give us a run for our money.  However, somewhere along the journey of dreaming big, LIFE HAPPENED! 

When life happens, we don’t dream as big.  The gap between the impossible and possible grows wider and wider.  For those of you who have stopped dreaming altogether, I have a message for you.  “You must dream, because if you don’t, you’ll die.”  Not physically, but in every other way, you will cease to exist.  Yes, I know to ask you to dream again or to dream big may be a scary proposition. You have dreamed many dreams and after 5, 10, 15 years they haven’t come true.  Perhaps you have stopped dreaming because you’ve completely given up hope that your dreams will ever come true.  Well today, I would like to offer you one word of hope, “COURAGE.”   I pray that today you will summon the courage to dream again.  Remember this, as long as you are still alive there is still time to realize your dreams.

Positive Self Talk – 5 Tips To Rid Your Mind Of Negativity

image_pdf

by Rhodri Jones

Self talk is the dialogue or ‘inner chatter’ that plays out in our mind. Whether it’s positive self-talk or negative self-talk this is a behavior that’s ever-present in all our lives.

We all talk to ourselves constantly throughout the day.

Everything that goes on our life is usually accompanied by our own ‘running commentaries’.

The problem is however, much of our self-talk is of a negative nature.

It is often colored with regrets and disappointments about our past, and fears and doubts about our future.

This negative inner dialogue not only affects the way we feel but it also affects the way we act.

All our actions are influenced by our thoughts. If our thoughts are positive, and uplifting then this leads us to taking more positive and inspired actions. If they are filled with pessimism and resistance then our actions will often be lacklustre and unproductive.

By changing the way we think it will in turn change the way we act.

Practicing positive self talk is a very powerful way of ridding our minds of negativity and replacing it with thoughts that will empower us to take more rewarding and inspiring actions.

There are many positive self talk activities that one can follow to help remove negativity from your mind.

Here are just five tips to help creating more powerful and inspiring self talk: Hurry and read the rest of the post 🙂
