THINK LIKE A BOSS
An entrepreneur can be defined by how he or she thinks but don’t
have their own business.
Organizations may have to allow their leaders to challenge
the way things have been done in order to foster an environment that will engage others, drive change, and result in more productivity.
Here are a few nuggets to stimulate positive progression in any organization large or small:
SUPPORT- Entrepreneurs need executive
sponsorship from the top and the sponsorship need the ideas from aspiring
TESTED APPROACH- It’s not enough to say “let’s
think different” it has to be a theory or practice in place that can help in
TRUST-Organizations must give their leadership
team the freedom to take risks and make decisions knowing that with some of the
risks there will also be failed attempts that will result in lessons. This will
also encourage employees to act and think like owners
Everyone that is a MILLIONAIRE is not rich…SAY WHAT?! Now
that I have your undivided attention let me
explain…You can still have a millionaire mentality without being a millionaire…You can still live your life to the fullest
without missing out on life trying to chase money…Understand that it’s all in your net worth…Here’s
an even bigger NEWSFLASH…you can be a millionaire and someone who is not can
have more with less…it’s all in how you manage your money, time and your life…. so don’t wait until you get there…get there in your mind first…”Beloved, I wish above all
things that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers” 3
Why strive for more when you don't know how to manage less?
Some of us know what it is to be broke busted and disgusted, to
have just enough, and some have even experienced having more than enough...in abundance until it's overflowing...It's safe to say that most of us would agree that having more than enough is the better of the latter...I have learned the way to fight poverty is not by
winning the lottery or a get rich quick scheme, but it's making a decision every day and
being consistent about working towards your goals to
achieve financial freedom in a systematic, strategic, and diligent manner. With
"faith and patience
you shall inherit the promises" Hebrew 6:12
Another thing they didn’t tell you is that in order to
build wealth you have to increase your income (maybe through various streams)
and reduce your debt…Living from paycheck to paycheck will not do it...Do you have to have those $200 sneakers when you can start
a savings account or purchase some insurance you may need.
You have the keys…you have what it takes…the wisdom is
locked up inside of you...The devil has tried to hide it from you by rearranging your priorities
and infiltrating your mind with fear, doubt, and unbelief. He makes you think
that when something is on sale you have to have it NOW. Another secret he didn’t
tell you is that there will always be good deals…there will always be sales…You need
to stay focus and make sure it's an immediate need when achieving your
One of the most important steps to financial freedom is making
sure your goals and net worth are properly assessed…It may be necessary for you
to meet with a financial advisor/planner of some sort in determining where you
are financially and how to get where you desire to go. Remember it’s a process…so
give yourself time to get there.
So the next time when making financial decisions…you need to
decide do you really need all the channels on cable when you don’t even have adequate
health life or car insurance?

Most people have a desire to connect with their true soul
mate. They want to experience that unconditional passion, fire, desire, and fearless love. They
want to be with that one person that stimulates and lights up their life. When this
happen you will not have to give up what you love to connect with them… So why not start with the best relationship...the one with becoming a better YOU!!
When you truly love you, that’s when you will discover your true
soul mate. Why? Because when you love yourself, you will do things for yourself
that make you the best version of YOU. You will sparkle, shine, radiate and
you will attract. Your soul mate will love you for that same reason. Don’t ever
let go of what makes you the best YOU. (Jenna Phillips)
Learning to love you first is the best relationship ever...
Do what makes you happy and makes your soul glow and grow. When you neglect your soul
you will end up lost.
Sometimes this will require pruning off things that no
longer creates value for you.
A lack of identity will cause you to accept what
you really need to eliminate. Your ability to draw clear, hard lines for what
you will & will not tolerate is an act of love of yourself & others
What a masterpiece you are and you will become when you are
connected with the right one. #keepgrowingingrace
10 TOP REASONS TO SMILE
by Mark Stibich, Ph.D.
1. Smiling Makes Us
We are drawn to people
who smile. There is an attraction factor. We want to know a smiling person and
figure out what is so good. Frowns, scowls and grimaces all push people away --
but a smile draws them in (avoid these smile aging habits to keep your smile

up in our faces. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and
overwhelmed. When you are stressed, take time to put on a smile. The stress
should be reduced and you'll be better able to take action.
5. Smiling Boosts Your

system to work better. When you smile, immune function improves possibly

7. Smiling Releases
Endorphins, Natural Pain Killers and Serotonin

smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together
these three make us feel good. Smiling is a natural drug.

9. Smiling Makes You
Smiling people appear
more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and more likely to be
approached. Put on a smile at meetings and appointments and people will react

10. Smiling Helps You

negative without losing the smile. It's hard. When we smile our body is sending
the rest of us a message that "Life is Good!" Stay away from
depression, stress and worry by smiling.
This is very interesting…Such as life….
Few times than often many marry their true heart or soul mate to live out their dreams such as becoming a home owner, having children, etc. and then live happily ever after, even though they may have had to endure trials and tribulations, they both decided it was worth the fight.
On the other hand...
Sometimes life could be very ironic as it relates to love, life, and relationships. A man falls in love with a woman who has everything he
wants in a wife but he is not ready for commitment, whereas the woman is and cannot wait but gets married to someone else probably, someone she
does not love the way she loves him!
The woman is ready for love and commitment but is approached by the wrong man who do not have the qualities she desires in a mate but they are ready for
marriage whereas the right man seems not to be available. This becomes an issue
of the right person at the wrong time or the wrong person at the right time.
Or, Sometimes it's not about the right or wrong mate but can you be the right mate at the right time
Such is life, Right?
Nevertheless, God’s grace in a man or woman’s life
positions the individual to meet the right person at the right time. Even if
you have missed someone you love, another opportunity will be available for
you. When God is involved in one's life, He ochestrates events and
circumstances to give you the best. Be encouraged and know that God is
arranging someone special for you; just be sensitive to discern and discover who he or she is.
So those of you who have found it..cherish it and those who are still waiting...don't give up on love...let it find you...and when it does...you will know...usually when you least expect it
Always remember to #keepgrowingingrace
