The truth is most of us give up on our dreams!
We give up on the creative idea, the hopes of a new job or business or a new life altogether. We make excuses and we let time pass until we are resolved to believe that it’s too hard to change and too late to believe that things can be different.
The habit of not believing in yourself is either rooted in the lack of tools, knowledge & resources or in living in a constant state of fear, doubt, and worry.
I am impatient, stubborn, opinionated and a little abrasive. I’m not good with money. I didn’t start driving until I was 32 which means I drive way too slow. I eat too much junk food. I laugh uncomfortably hard and loud. I’ve honestly given up on having abs. I watch way too much TV. I think menopause f*ckin’ sucks! Sometimes I pretend to be asleep to avoid dealing with my kids (and my husband!). Every plant I have dies, no matter what I do! And I am painfully honest with myself and others because I think this is important.
That being said, I am loyal, generous, funny, compassionate and overwhelmingly grateful! I am an optimist. I go all in. I believe. I am prayerful and faithful. I work really, really hard.I say what I mean… I think people appreciate that. I am consistent and dependable. I’m a problem solver and a creative thinker. I fight for fairness, literally if necessary. People trust me with their secrets. I don’t stop until its right. I listen. I care. I understand. I love …deeply. I am brave when it really counts. I pray every day for those who truly suffer.
I teach people (mostly women) prayerful & practical strategies for personal and powerful growth! And these are the tools that allow us to accomplish our dreams and create lives that we both love and deserve!
I was raised in a prayerful and conservative household and I’m the last of seven. My parents were married for over 50 years. They were committed to God, family and hard work and that’s what they taught us. We would have church service at home, where my mom would teach us lessons from the Bible like, you will reap what you sow, do unto others as you would have them do unto you and through God, all things are possible.
Admittedly, I didn’t appreciate these lessons so much at the time, I’d much rather be outside with my friends or watching an episode of I Love Lucy on the television!
So, by the time I was 20, I figured I knew enough and started making some decisions of my own.
When I was 22 years old, I gave birth to my first child, a baby boy! I moved out of my parent’s house and into a subsidized apartment with my son’s father who was unemployed and had no means of providing for us but I loved him anyway.
I took a break from college with two years left to go, I was on food stamps, I had no car (no driver’s license because I didn’t know how to drive), no job, no health insurance, no money! My parents were devastated and angry and made it clear that I had made my bed, now I had to lie in it!
So there I was, on my own, with my new son and this man who said he loved me and with whom I hoped to marry one day. Who knew that in less than two years he would hit me so hard, I would nearly pass out! I lost my direction and my power for a long time. And of course, it got much worse before it got better.
It was the hardest season of my life. I teetered on the brink of depression and begin to lose hope. It was not until I was able to adjust my spirit and apply a series of prayerful & practical strategies that I was able to manifest the life that I wanted and deserved.
Over the next 8 years,
- Free myself from a life of fear and abuse
- I was able to finish college
- Become the executive director of a non-profit, raising millions of dollars to address the needs of people and the community
- Buy a home of my own
- Marry the true man of my dreams
- And manifest the Life and Family I love and deserve!
The fact is, whether it’s in love, life or business, accomplishing anything begins with having the basic and fundamental belief that you can do it; and this takes continued personal and powerful growth!
