I’ve always wondered why for years of sitting at the front seat of taxis reading, drivers never lowered the volume of their speakers when they saw me reading as compared to their reflex response or reaction of lowering the volume of their speakers and sometimes putting it off when they see you pick your phone or have a phone conversation.
I realized it wasn’t intentional. If something is valued as a culture and premium placed on it, it will get the desired or needed respect, that is what reading is lacking.
Life long intentional learning, adding value, and renewing our minds through reading are critical part of the developmental process and excellence culture. If you want change, start with a book- just read it. Knowledge pays dividends that cannot be lost.

How do you fight back when life knocks you down?
The truth is we all experience negative setbacks and failure in life. It’s not what happens in life that matters, what matters is how you react to life circumstances.
So what do you do when life hits you with the unexpected?
What do you do when the person you’ve trusted the most in your business runs off with your intellectual property and makes it their own?
What do you do when the person you’ve loved with all your heart, cheats behind your back?
What do you do when you’ve lost that job and don’t know how you will survive?
My recommendation is that you approach your specific situation with a different lens.
Please know, that I completely understand what you are going through. And trust me, I get it, this setback or failure can be so painful that it basically paralyzes you.
So what do you do?
Start by focusing on your self-respect. Double down and safeguard your self-respect. You’ve just been duped so self-respect is a high-priority and your mission.
Please remember that during these raw, critical moments how you fuel your mind and body is critical to your success.
Life is unpredictable and you have to be prepared.
How you face difficult decisions and tough people in life will make you or break you.

I know we probably just met, but I'm going to be bold and ask for a favor. If there's something in your life that you're unhappy about, will you allow me to show you a way to change it? I know you've been asking for a sign, but you keep on saying no to things that don't look the way you've imagined. So what happens now? Nothing changes, you begin to complain more. Look, I've been there. Where you are is perfect, at any moment you can allow yourself to improve. You deserve it! I know we all want change but not everyone actually shows up to change. That's been me all of these years pretending to be someone that I'm not. It's so much easier to be yourself. It's easier being healthy and happy. It's also easier earning your worth versus settling.
If you're looking for changes in your life regarding health, happiness, mindset, and wealth you need to get on my team call tonight! It may or may not be for you, but I feel in purpose for offering.
Comment below or DM me for the information!
By the way I'm down 57 pounds! Up 11 pounds of muscle, energy, confidence and I have my life back! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Feeling a major shift in myself and especially filled up after a nourishing few days in Tampa. Peeling away another layer of self doubt and limiting beliefs. Fire in my belly for inspiring healthy change on purpose.
There is so much work do be done for our generation and the generations that will follow. What a crucial and exciting time to impact lives in a huge way. Dare to say yes to “such a time as this!”

Let’s Go!!! Talk about a cool guy, Meet Jordan Steele @tvsjordansteele
a Emmy award Meteorologist in the great city of Seattle! I actually met him a year ago and from there we hit it off. He is such a good friend who encourages you to take risk and just try it or he say omg do it!!! All the way from the Southwest, Jordan has been all around from Phoenix to San Diego, Bend, Oregon and Austin, TX but his heart is Seattle. We sat for almost a hour and one of the things he touched on was transition... you must learn to transition in order to have true lasting success! As your life begins to change you have to be open to that change and transition with the times in your life whew so good!!!!! Take a listen and also lets laugh such a great guy! #mondaymotivation
It’s understanding that God will wreck all the idols you’ve placed above Him, and knowing it’ll hurt. But trusting that He’ll lift you up from the wreckage and bring beauty from the ashes.
Surrender means sacrifice. A willingness to walk away from anything and everything to follow Jesus. No matter how valuable or comfortable or good you’ve deemed those things to be.
My book may not be for everybody but it is for somebody...that somebody who can relate, that somebody who is afraid, that somebody who needs to forgive, that somebody who needs to push through, that somebody who needs healing, that somebody who needs strength, that somebody who needs courage, that somebody who needs to be brave, that somebody whom has dealt with loss, that somebody whom has dealt with pain, hurt, brokenness, sadness, obstacles, setbacks, someone who doesn’t feel loved, someone who is a single mom, someone who has made mistakes, someone who is discouraged and misunderstood, someone who is on edge of ending their life, wanting to give up because you see no way out. I want you to know it does get better, you can and will make it through, I want to encourage you through it all, to keep going and never give up in spite of it all. You got this!!!💪🏽 Thank you, @disberrryyyitswild
for your support. Much Love, Peace & Blessings, Queen!❤️

💡You have to be disciplined and develop a clear VISION. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail! #mondaymotivation
Too many of you aren't getting to where you want to be .. Because you are hanging out with people who are bring you down .. Instead of hanging out with those who encourage you ..start hanging around those who are successful or want to become successful like yourself
What is an area in your business you wish would move faster? Growing a strong network? Making more money to support those you love? Growing your Instagram following? Having a better work-life balance?
Comment in 1 sentence! Sometimes writing it down can give you the clarity you need to figure out your goals and take action from there. I'll start...
