Monday Book Review-Oh, The Place You’ll Go!

oh-the-places-youll-go

This book was written by Dr. Seuss for children, but the lessons are priceless.  Here are the 6 lessons I received:

  1. Life is full of choices.  During our life will encounter a number of options and we must make a choice.
  2. You will see some great things.  In every area in life, you need to keep our eyes on the good things that happen in our life.
  3. You will make some bad decisions.  Sometime we need to start over and we might get off track.  Everyone makes a bad decision from time to time.
  4. There is FUN to be done.  Many times we don’t take the time to see the Fun that is available for us.  See the FUN everyday.
  5. Sometimes you must go alone.  I know that in every stage of our life, we need some alone time.  God does his best work when we are alone and he has our captive attention.
  6. Life is a GREAT Balancing Act. We will have HIGHS and we will have LOWS.  We must realize that nothing stays the same.  We have to be willing to learn as we go up and we go down.  Hopefully our life will be a GREAT Balancing ACT!

If you want to be blessed get this book: OH, THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!

Monday Book Review-Ladies Living Life Forward

ladyd-book4-500x500

I had the pleasure of purchasing this book when it was released but I had not reviewed it until today. Here are the 6 lesson I got from the book:

  1. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  This scripture is so apparent in the life of Lady D.  She is a passionate Christian woman, she truly desires that everyone believes that they CAN do all things only with Christ.  I love her commitment to the promises of God.
  2. Forgiveness is needed.  In order to live the life that God has for you, you must rid any anger or ill will to anyone.  She truly broke down why forgiveness is needed in our lives and how you can receive the benefits God has promised you.
  3. Renew your mind.  If you want to make a change in your life, start with your mind. God allows us free will but many times we don’t monitor what goes in our mind.  It is our job to keep the GARBAGE out of our mind. Lady D shares the blessing in memorizing the scriptures.  Scriptures are just like weapons we can use when Satan is attacking us.  When we start to speak those scriptures from our memory, the Devil can’t do anything but leave us alone.
  4. Take control of your personal economy. Our jobs many times are taken for granted and we don’t see God’s favor of having the job.  Lady D stressed the need to save and take some steps to save money and do what we can to improve our finances.
  5. Encourage yourself.  Not many people feel comfortable talking about their greatness.  If more people realized that God gave you the greatness because YOU are the Apple of His Eye.  Spend time finding out what is good about you.  What do people love about you??  God gave you that skill or gift.  Don’t take God’s gift for granted.
  6. The Word of God can change your life.  After all of the issues that people experience that is always an answer by the Father.  Lady D encourages us to seek the scriptures for our answers.  If you BELIEVE God created it all, there is nothing he can’t solve.  The problem occurs when we don’t know his word and his promises.  Life will always have ups and downs but with God the downs can be occur while you are in HIS hands.

Monday Book Review-Raving Fans

raving-fan

This book teaches you how to develop a group of people who would never think of going anywhere else but where you provide goods and services.  They are called Raving Fans! 

Here are the 6 lessons I received from reading this book:

  1. In life everyone has a choice of who they patronize.  Most people take for granted the relationship that people give to their money and how they spend it.  I think times are changing and people are more aware of where their money goes.  Personally I am trying very hard to shop at stores that stand for something and have good outreach programs to the community. I want to find doctors and service providers that know me and I am not just a number to them.  It does not matter if you spend 100 dollars or 100 million dollars per year, your money has value and you give to those who you believe should have it.
  2. Find out what you want.  When you go into business, decide what do you expect from staff, customers and even yourself.  Many times people don’t spend the time thinking about the feel of their business. I suggest you know what a person will experience when they use your services because your reputation will go ahead of you.
  3. Be human and admit if you make mistakes.  Sometimes you might not always get things right, take some time to find out how things when wrong and what you can do to make things better.
  4. Find out what the customers want.  It is so good to ask people from time to time, how you are doing in their opinion.  How can I make things better??  What makes you come to my store??  
  5. Be ready to deal with the answers.  Many times people will not give you the whole truth.  Tell people that you want to know their good and bad experiences.
  6. Deliver plus one.  When people tell you want that want give them that plus one.  Go above and beyond their desired results.  Always WOW people with your little extras.

Friday Movie Review-Collateral Beauty

Collateral_Beauty_poster.png

This movie was so good that I saw it 3 times in the last 2 weeks.  I love stories that touch your heart.  Here are the 6 lessons that I learned from the movie:

  1. The co-star stated 1/2 of the billings were built of his relationships.  Business is done based upon the relationships.  So many people offer so many things that the only way to conduct business is how you feel about someone.  This is true in every business from birth to death.
  2. Death can make you feel that life is not worth living.  No parent wants to bury their child.  During the time of grief, people can respond in a number of ways.  Sometimes it takes years to regain the day to day routine.  When my son died, I was numb for over 1 year.  I could not get the strength to believe in children again.  It was the most difficult time in my life.
  3. Time waits for you know.  You can’t control it.  It is truly a gift and we must be thankful for everyday that we get. Many people take time for granted. We always wish for more, but what if you decide today to think about living as though you will not get any more after today.  That would force you to work today like was your last.  It would force you to love to today like it was your last.  It would help you see time is not under your rule. 
  4. Love is the fabric of life.  We can’t choose who we love or who loves us.  Just be open to receive it.  Don’t push people out of your life if they love you, just love them back. You can change your life with a little LOVE.
  5. If you knew you were dying, would you tell anyone??  If your answer is no, that is not fair.  Give people a chance to say goodbye.  That is the right way to die.
  6. Collateral Beauty is all around us, we must open our eyes to see it. The older people will tell you when God takes something or someone he replaces it with something or someone else.  I my case I did not know 2 beautiful children would arrive after Adrian died.  I was able to move pass the grief and see the collateral beauty.  My prayer is you will always see the collateral beauty.

FRESH START!

fresh-start

It’s January 2017, are you ready for your FRESH START???  One of the greatest lessons that I learned in 2016 is nothing stays the same and everything will change.  Even if we hope and pray and ask God to help us, sometimes the answer is no and we must learn the lessons that is being given to us.

If you spend too much time thinking about the past and how good things were, you will find yourself in a depression mode. I can guarantee you if you JUST GET UP and GET GOING, things will change for you.  If you just have some faith that things will get better, your life can turn around and you can live the life of your dreams.

A fresh start, a new breath of air and a renewed mind is all you need to make 2017 the year of your dreams.  Will you commit to be great?  Will you do things differently??? Join me in having a FRESH START.

Movie Review-Allied

 

allied-brad-pitt-and-marion-cotillard

This movie-Allied was a treat to see and review.  I learned 6 valuable lessons from this movie:

  1. Everything beautiful is not always good for you.  Many times we envy those who might look better than us or seem to have a better life than us.  Never wish for another person’s life, you don’t know what they go thru to live their life.  If you think that someone has a greener yard, trust and believe that their water bill is higher.
  2. Know your assignment.  Everyone is on assignment in life.  The smart people learn why they are here and live accordingly.  When you are on an assignment, you just work without problem.
  3. Be ready for change.  Change is inevitable.  We can’t stop it or cause it to be delayed.  If we know it is coming, we can get ready for it.
  4. Don’t allow your feelings to take over.  Feelings get in the way of so many things.  If you are dealing with your feelings, make sure that you keep working on goals and don’t allow moments of depression, sadness or angry stop your progress.
  5. Stop and watch the sunrise.   It’s good to slow down and see the goodness of God.  Being able to slow down does the body and mind good.  
  6. Death is coming.  Death should be a great motivation for us to live every day as if it was our last.  When you know that death is coming, you will begin to make the main thing, the main thing.  You will begin to cherish every moment.  You will no longer be afraid of death, you will love the gentle reminder to live everyday to the fullest.

Keep Climbing YOUR Staircase

rizzi-spiral-staircase-3

 

 Everyone has a staircase they are walking, running or crawling on everyday. Where does your staircase lead??   The secret is you must know where you are going. 

You must be on a journey, a trip you might say, that inspires and motivates you. When the stairs start to curve and become crooked, you must have something that helps you stay on the staircase. When the feeling of excitement leaves you, does your final destination have enough grit to hold you??

If you want to make sure you keep on climbing you need to do the following steps.

  1. Revisit your Belief DAILY.  Keep remembering what you believe and why you believe it.
  2. Vision yourself reaching the top of staircase–Obtaining that goal you so richly desire.
  3. Figure out a game plan.  It’s time to detail out exactly what you need to do.  First do the big goal then break it down into bite-size pieces.  
  4. Now it is time to get to work.  Work on your game plan everyday.
  5. Correct as you go.  As you work on your game plan you will see some correction and learn some better ways to do things.  When you learn new things, don’t be afraid to make corrections quickly.
  6. Never ever GIVE UP!!  You must know that you must KEEP CLIMBING YOUR STAIRCASE.

Leave a Trail

leave-trail

Many times in life, you can’t follow the path given by someone else.  Have the courage to leave a trail.  2016 has been a year that shown me, leaving a trail is the best thing for me.  I have learned so much and experienced so many great things.

If you start to believe that what you are doing–You will leave a TRAIL!

When you get into ACTION–You will leave a TRAIL!

If you find something worth sharing–You will leave a TRAIL!

When you share what you KNOW–You will leave a TRAIL!

If you start a BUSINESS–You will leave a TRAIL!

When you build a team–You will leave a TRAIL!

If you lead a group–You will leave a TRAIL!

Just leave a TRAIL Y’all!!!!

Keep Believing Yourself

 

keep-believing-yourself

 

Keep Believing Yourself.  Do you see that I said KEEP–that means that you Believe in yourself to start with.  This might be a little premature because I have found that some people don’t believe that they are capable of anything.  I wish everyone had the unshakable belief in themselves.  

At times in your life you might lose your belief due to lack of activity or when things go wrong.  I have been experience a lowered belief in 2016 because I decided that I wanted to go without an actual coach on a monthly basis.  This has been a tough 11 months, but what I realized today is I gave my power of belief to my coach in the past.  Today I took that POWER back, I confirmed that most of my coaching confirmed my personal ideals for my life that have worked in the past.  Not only that issue but prior to having a coach, I was a BEAST in business.  I was crushing it!!!!  What happened???  I have been in receive mode for 11 years.  It’s time to come out of the shadows and become the Woman of God that HE intended for me to become.  

Never ever give your POWER away.  That feeling in your gut that keeps telling you to do something or that you are right, is TRUE.  Always TRUST your GUT!!!!  I am so tired of people telling you something and you know that is not True for you but you believe them because they are the EXPERT.  Guess what????  You are the EXPERT in your life, never forget it!!!!

I have always known that I was meant to lead the masses with my motivation and message of hope.  It’s time to reclaim my Belief and my Actions will return to the FIREBALL I once was in the past.  I my wish for you to KEEP BELIEVING YOURSELF.

Book Review-Poke the Box

poke-the-box-seth-godin

Seth Godin is known for INCREDIBLE work and this book is no exception. Let me tell you the 6 tips I learned from this book:

  1. Invent the status quo.  Stop following the path that everyone is following.  This can be difficult to do because you can be following the advice of a coach or mentor.  It’s hard to carve out your path independently but I want you to do try to do something alone for the next 90 days.  
  2. Be the person to follow.  Seth states this requires a change in your posture. You must become a person of influence.  Do you truly BELIEVE that you are someone to follow??
  3. Become educated.  Motivation and inspiration requires increasing your skills. If you want to know how to keep motivating yourself and others, learn everything you can about it.
  4. Become known. I always say, you can be the BOMB.com but if you don’t tell anyone, you will blow up by yourself. In this world of internet and social media, it is easy to get known, just have something to say.
  5. Be consistent.  If you want to really move the needle on any project that you attempt, get consistent in working on it.  You will make some traction if you keep doing the right thing over and over.
  6. Have the heart and passion to go after your goals. If you want to obtain your goals, know that you must ACT on your passion.

Take some time and enjoy reading: POKE THE BOX.
