Dedicated During A Deficit

my authentic me Mar 29, 2021
 

When you start on an endeavor be it business or a personal, there are certain expectations you have. What we plan doesn’t always fall neatly into place. Often there are unforeseen obstacles, delays, and setbacks that occur. This is the time when you must dig deep and have dedication during the deficit. 

Dedication is the act of being fully devoted to something, whether this is something intangible, such as a task, goal, or desired outcome, or something that you can feel yourself physically being a part of, such as such as a cause, religion, sports teams, or another person.

Hard times are bound to happen. It is a part of life. However, strength and dedication get you across in times like these. You realize that hopes and dreams aren’t enough but instead hard work and dedication are the way to achieve success.

This is largely the reason why many people sometimes never start out on the journey of self growth and discovery.  Maybe they have a feeling...

Make Your Mind Matter

my authentic me Mar 15, 2021
 

Henry Ford said: “Whether you think you can, or you can’t- you are right.”  Some may choose to to dismiss the phrase but there is truth to it. Humans are cognitive beings. Everything we do and everything we feel originates in our mind as thoughts. These thoughts form perspectives and influence our decisions. Those decisions lead us to or keep us from action. The pattern of thoughts we choose to focus on shape the quality of our lives. 

Almost everyone has heard the saying “mind over matter”, but how easy is it to actually implement that into everyday life?  For some people it can be a daunting task. But fortunately training your mind using special techniques to overcome problems and manifest results is very doable .

What is Mind over Matter?

The mind in this context refers to your thoughts, beliefs and intentions.  And matter is the physical body and the environment. Mind over matter therefore means your mind...

Balance Is Key

my authentic me Mar 01, 2021
 

Maintaining a balanced life is becoming increasingly more important for your personal health and well-being in a fast-paced, modern world. Sustaining a balanced mind, body, and spirit can help improve and stabilize overall health and wellbeing.  

For those of you that know me, already know I have lived and taught the importance of a balanced life for as long as I can remember. Looking back I have strived to live a balanced life since I was a teen. Being  a student, an all year round athlete, and having a part time job caused me to learn really quick that it was imperative to have balance in order to be successful .

Many people are led to believe that it’s impossible to find balance because there just isn’t enough time in the day or energy in the body. It simply feels impossible to balance all that life throws at us on a given day or week. Balance is often mis-understood as making all things equal and giving equal weight to all...

The Power In A Daily Strategy

myauthenticme Feb 15, 2021
 

In my last blog I wrote about knowing and loving the skin you are in.  That is the foundation to living an authentic & purposeful life.  The next vital step would have to be knowing our most valuable resource.  

Our most precious resource is not money; it is time. More specifically, the ability to gift our time to ourselves, and others, in a manner which allows us to derive the maximum enjoyment from life. Of course, just like money; how you spend your time is critically important.

“Give us this day...  We are given a certain number of days to manifest what we were put here to achieve. We must learn to value our time and know how to us it wisely.  Appreciating time has had such a profound impact on me that it’s the frame in which I ask myself important questions. Are the things that made me happy 10 years ago still making me happy? What would make me happy 20 years from now? How much happier...

Know & Love Skin You’re In

myauthenticme Feb 01, 2021
 

None of us are the same, and that is the beauty of creation. We all have a specific destiny to manifest.  No one is exactly like anyone else.  It would be a very boring and bland world if we all were identical wouldn’t it?  If we know this to be true, then why are so many depressed and feeling like their lives don’t matter. Truth be told it is because we fail to know our role. 

The chicken is happy is to be a chicken...they know who they are!  They do not pray for larger feathers to fly. They know they are the most asked for cuisine. They know they are not meant to soar in the sky and they most certainly know that they are not known to be majestic.  They know their purpose and that they are not like anyone else.

The eagle is majestic and functions on another level than the chicken. They soar through the sky unlike the chicken, but they are not in demand on anyone’s dinner plate. Though they are beautiful and can fly; they are not tasty...

Faith In The Hateful Middle

my authentic me Jan 18, 2021
 

We all pray for growth, prosperity, wisdom, and advancement both  spiritually and physically.  We all want that vision of being healed, having the house, spouse, kids, or the job so bad that we forget one major part.  There is always a hateful middle.  

The hateful middle is that time frame between when you wish for something better and achieving said goal.  That season where we are put through the fire or put in a pressure cooker.  Everyone knows what I am speaking about and none of us like to being there. 

Have you or someone you know vowed to loose weight?  At first you go to the gym every day and you are eating right.  Fast forward to week two or three.  Many get tired of getting up for those morning workouts and are too tired after work to go to the gym. Perhaps they find it difficult to find the time or energy to meal prep for the upcoming week.   Whatever the reason more often than not individuals give up far...

You Are Still Standing

my authentic me Jan 04, 2021
 

Well we made it!  It is finally 2021!  Let’s all take a moment and exhale over that fact alone. We have left the most stressful and trying year many of us have ever been through.  Maybe you had goals for 2020 that were not meant.  Perhaps you are nowhere near your original goals that you had set for yourself.  You might be feeling overwhelmed or that you failed in your efforts to better yourself over these last twelve months. 

Do you criticize yourself for not getting enough done at the end of the day? Or are you hard on yourself when things don’t go as planned? No matter what your goal is, a negative state of mind—one that’s pessimistic, self-critical, or discouraging—won’t do you any good. If this sounds anything like you I want to remind you of one thing.  You are still standing!  You are still here.  So many have been struggling with silent battles that seem to be never ending. Countless...

Delayed But Not Dismissed

my authentic me Dec 21, 2020
 

Delayed is defined as the act of postponing, hindering, or causing something to occur more slowly than normal.  Dismissed is defines as o go; give permission or a request to depart. to discharge or remove, as from office or service.  Many people are thinking that they have been dismissed when in fact they are just being delayed.

A few days ago I was speaking with a client and they kept referring to  their time had passed.  They stated that the world has given up on them and moved on.  When I asked what made them come to this conclusion the reply I received hit me.  They had come to this drastic ending based on the fact that their goals/dreams had not been manifested yet.  I thought to myself how did can anyone jump from A to Z so quickly. 

As I tried to bring some rational thought to the situation it came to me.  Many of us give up on our vision because we think we have been dismissed when in reality we have been delayed. There is a...

The Truth Hurts Sometimes

myauthenticme Dec 07, 2020
 

Truth is a high currency in 2020.  It is of great value.  This season is calling us to find truth.  The truth of what is going on in the world around us and the truth of who we are called to be.  Many are finding that the world is changing so fast that they do not know where they fit in anymore. So many are asking themselves what piece of the puzzle do they hold. We are at a crossroads.  You can view this pause as a stepping stone or a stumbling block.  It is all based on your perception of what the truth is. 

No one can doubt that there is a battle for your mind happening everyday.  From politics to the pandemic, it seems everyday that there are new disputes rising. If you are a believer like I am, then you know this time was predicted in Mathew 24.  It should be of no surprise that people are getting offended by every little thing (such as wearing a mask).  It should come as a shock of the uproar that is taking place in our...

Access Versus Activation

my authentic me Nov 23, 2020
 

Most of us have a debit or credit card.  We receive them in the mail with instructions that they cannot be used until we call a number to activate it.  You have the card tangibly in your hand yet it is useless until you take an action. This is because having access is different then being activated. 

The same can be said with our individual purposes in life.   Access is defines as the ability, right, or permission to approach, enter, speak with, or use; admittance.  Activation is defined as the action or process of making something active or operative.  With your credit card you have to call the number provided in order to utilize your line of credit. We must take action to have our purpose to come to fruition as well.  You may have the ability to do something,  but it is what you do with it that matters.

Have you ever seen a natural born athlete?  That person who was built for a certain sport.  Everyone knows that...
