Hey fam! Hope you’re rocking the last week of the year! I pray you either achieved your goals for the year or got close enough to achieving them! I also hope you’ve started putting new ones together for 2012! :-D

Here’s a short clip from one of my favorite motivational speakers – Zig Ziglar. Please endeavor to pull all you can from it! And remember, it’s never too late to start living your dreams!

Show Some Love…

Hey fam! As we all know, Christmas is the season of giving. It’s a season of sending gifts and gift cards to friends and loved ones. Above all, it’s a season of appreciation and celebration of God’s greatest gift to man – Jesus. It sure is a fun season!!

However, today, I want to urge you to do more than just give wrapped gifts. I want to encourage you to give the people around you the gift of a smile…You don’t have to have an incredible sense of humor to do that. You don’t even need a sense of humor at all! :-)

All you have to do is give them a compliment. Tell them something positive about them that you see… Tell them you love their attitude, their hair, their eyes, their shoes, or their shirt. It really doesn’t matter, just tell them something good.

You see, people don’t go about sourcing for compliments, but it sure feels good when someone else leaves you a compliment. You know that, don’t you? ;-) You’ve felt that way too at some point; maybe even just a few hours ago! Now, all you have to do is give someone else the privilege of hearing something good about them from you. You’ll completely change the vibe of their day! They’ll feel special, wanted, noticed, and cute, all because you said something!!

If you’ve ever been to a funeral or watched one, you probably heard the most incredible and breath-taking remarks about the dead guy during someone’s speech… But why wait that long? Why wait until the person is dead to give them compliments? Do it now that it actually counts. Change someone’s day, change their vibe, change their mood, just tell someone something good to make them smile. :-)

After all, this season is all about love. And who says you can’t show love and warmth to strangers! It won’t cost you a thing, but it will definitely make a lasting difference in the recipients life!

The Eagle in You: Face the Storm…

Dec 7, 2011 by

“Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging.” – Joseph Campbell

Hey fam! Hope you’re all doing great! Hope Christmas shopping and all that good stuff’s coming along just fine…If you’ve not bought anything yet, please don’t delay…get out there and rob some stores of their discounts!!  :-D

Today, I want to talk about another characteristic of eagles – let’s call it…Wing power! When a storm hits, eagles are the only birds that are brave enough to stay in the air; other birds (the ducks, sparrows, and geese) head for their nests! lol…It gets even better. Eagles don’t just stay in the air, they fly into the storm!! Kinda cool huh? Those creatures have very incredible wing power!

Now, this is how it relates to us humans: we’re supposed to be able to rise to challenges, garner strength from within, and face the storms in our lives. I realize this is easier said than done, but it’s possible! We can all do it! Just like Joseph Campbell said, when we face challenges, we’re forced to search deep within ourselves to find the power to overcome! Actually, I would like to replace the word “Find” in that sentence with “Discover,” because we don’t suddenly become strong/powerful because of a storm we’re facing, we’ve had the strength all along! We just never got to use ‘em…

Let’s cultivate the habit of seeing challenges as opportunities to better ourselves, rather than life’s effort to frustrate the bunkers out of us. Let’s begin to see our present crisis as a call for us to start using those abilities we just never got around using. For instance, instead of seeing your infuriating boss as a sucker who’s worthy of death by food poisoning, you can choose to see that job as an opportunity for you to learn how to deliver your best in a hostile environment. With that shift in paradigm, you’d be surprised how much of a patient fellow you really are! :-D

A very smart lady I know once said, “…If you must, you can.” And I’ve found that to be so true! For example, one might take refuge in his cozy “wake-work-hangout-sleep” schedule, until he gets the memo that his company’s about to start laying off employees, or he just decides to make a better life for himself. Then, the schedule changes to “Wake-work-school-hangout-sleep.” And then he gets married and has a bunch of cute little kids, the new schedule now becomes, “Wake-work-work-school-wife-family-family-sleep.” Here’s what’s interesting though; he’ll do it…somehow!! He’ll find the strength he never knew he had to combine all these and make them work….because he must!

I’m not being unrealistic. It’s in everyone of us. We all posses the capabilities to face whatever challenges we have before us today. Don’t be like the ducks that shy away from things just because the heat got turned up, or because of some storm. You can do something about your challenges! If not you, you might know someone who might be able to help. But do something about it! Quit making excuses and activate the eagle in you. Get up and face that storm already!!

In conclusion, fam, dust up your abandoned goals one more time… But this time, with the mindset that says, “I have what it takes to make this a reality!” And, as you face your next challenge (in school, work, family, or wherever), remember they’re designed to help you grow. You’ll discover more of yourself when your done with it. It’s ok to feel down, but don’t stay down! Don’t feel bad for long. Put yourself together and embark on your journey of self discovery!! :-)
