Stay Focused

My God, my God, if any one tells you being a winner is easy, they are lying to you. It is one of if not the hardest thing you will ever do.     

If you knew all I have gone through this last three years but especially the last six months, you would be amazed that I am still able to function much less win. However, I will share with you that it is no secret. It is hard work, it is dedication, it is passion, and above all these things, it is faith and belief that I am worthy to be a winner.  I know it is my destiny. This has to be your mindset if you want to be a winner.

There will be much adversity, many obstacles, lots of hate (while they smile and which you well), You must stay strong, seek to bring your goals into existence.  Have a single focus, do not be distracted. There is so much going on right now, and  it   is so easy to lose sight of your intention. I promise you, if you keep your eye on the prize and strive every day to reach it, and keep your faith, and not grow weary, you will make it. I know I will or I will die trying. This is my attitude because I know God wants me to succeed, I am daughter of the Most High and like any father, He wants my (our) success. The world is watching, what are you showing them?

The Struggle Continues

Whenever you are following the path God has for you, you will find out that there will be many struggles that come up. I’m not sure if these situations are testing your resolve to obtain your goal(s) or just dark forces at work to make you quit. Either way, stay the course, never give up, never surrender, because if you do, you will always wonder what if.

I personally will never say what if because I will never give up, I will succeed, that’s how I’m made. I may have to step back and regroup, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but trust, I’m coming back stronger, wiser, better, than before. But don’t wait on me, do your thing, make it happen. You can do it! I have faith in you and me! Let’s Get It Now!

Do your due diligence, and then step out on your faith. Don’t listen to the naysayers, never mind what it looks like, don’t wait for all the stars to align, none of the greats did, did they? If they did, are they great? Keep your mind focused on the positive and remember a failure is just a stepping stone. Learn the lesson of the failure, make corrections, and go again.

Never give up, so many have and right before their breakthrough, don’t let that be you. Keep striving, keep fighting, keep praying, keep doing at least one thing everyday that brings you closer to your dream. As long as you are alive, breathing and thinking it is never too late to WIN. What will it take for you to WIN?

Your Why?

A few months ago I published a blog talking about my Why (you can read it here). I think it is of the utmost importance to know yourself and what your Why is. What is it that makes you want it. What are you willing to do to get it?

The thing that you are willing to go all in for, win, lose or draw, that’s your Why. Remember, your Why is not like anyone else’s it is uniquely you. The path to discovering your why is not always an easy one.   When you find your Why, you will have to commit to your Why, above and before all other concerns, it is definitely not an easy.

If you think you will only have to deal with these issues in the beginning stages, you would be wrong. You will be tested, tested and tested again. You must remain true to your goals, ambitions, and motivations. If you want it, you will have to have singular vision and continue to strive for your success.

I am thinking of the last hurdle I had to overcome. Trust, it was not even directed and my business. The attack came upon my living situation. However, I continued to pray and have faith that it would all work out. I never stopped doing at least 1 thing daily to maintain / grow my business and even though I was essentially homeless for about 30 days, my business never missed a beat. This is what I mean by maintain a single focus on what it is you want to achieve.

Remeber, nothing worth having and keeping comes easily.

Don’t ever listen to the naysayers,  they will never understand you. Some mean well, others do not. Don’t let that matter, don’t let them take up space in your head. Shake them off and continue to do your thing, focus on your Why, and in the end, you will be a Winner!
