Just Start Where You Are

We are in the final week of January and the first month of 2015 will be a thing of the past. Time goes by so quickly. I was sitting her thinking to myself, “what have I not accomplished thus far, that I wanted to accomplish in the first month?” As I pondered the question, there […]

Time To Start Concept

One of my favorites scriptures in the bible is Proverbs 23:7, As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Everytime I read this scripture it inspires me to dream bigger and to imagine higher. We literally can create the life we desire to experience with our thoughts.

For many years I dreamed of becoming an Inspirational Speaker, Life Coach and Author who traveled and inspired audiences to live significant lives of purpose and to pursue their dreams. However, during many of those years my thoughts didn’t particularly line up with the dream I had for my life. My thoughts spoke to what my personal experience was and not to what my possibilities were.

It wasn’t until I shifted my thinking, I began to experience opportunities to live my dream. Though I have not yet completely fulfilled the dream, I have no doubt that I will one day. I like what Ghandi says, “The mind is everything. What you think, you become.”

Here is a brief video of me sharing what some of my limiting thoughts were that held me back, & how I shifted my thinking to overcome my fears.

What limiting thoughts are holding you back? What new thoughts do you need to start thinking to change your life?

48 Days To The Work You Love Revised Edition

48 Days To The Work You Love by Dan Miller (Nashville, TN: B&H Books, 2010)

Do you desire greater fulfillment and purpose in the work that you do? Have you just settled for a job, knowing that you have a greater purpose for your life? If you answered yes to either question, then I recommend you read Dan Miller’s book 48 Days To The Work You Love.

Our work is one of those powerful defining areas. Sadly, a job is what most people settle for, but as Dan Miller so powerfully points out in 48 Days To The Work You Love, a calling lights up your life. It is time to step into your calling and do work you were created to do.

One of my favorite quotes is by the late Dr. Miles Munroe. He states, The greatest tragedy in life is not death. Life’s greatest tragedy is a life without purpose. Moreover, a life without priorities. Additionally, life’s greatest failure, is to be successful at the wrong assignment.

Are you successful at the wrong assignment?

I Can, I Will and I Must
May 31, 2014

Here is a quick video of a keynote I did for a Nashville middle school during their 8th grade graduation ceremony.  As they prepare to go on to high school, it is inevitable they will encounter individuals and experiences that will challenge their dreams and hopes.  No matter those experiences, their dreams are possible and they must proceed always maintaining the attitude of I Can, I Will and I Must.
