"Some self-confronting questions: Where do I want to be at any given time? How am I going to get there? What do I have to do to get myself from where I am to where I want to be? What's the first, small step I can take to get moving?"

- George A. Ford

"Your beginnings will seem humble, so prosperous will your future be."
- Job 8:7

"I Am - the two most powerful words in the world; for whatever we put after them, becomes our reality." 
- Susan Howson, Author and Coach

The Next Time You're Out ...
Be sure to pick  up a copy of Black Enterprise Magazine.  My latest contribution offers "Risk-Taking Tips" and can be found within  Robyn D. Clarke's article, Rewards of Risk Taking (page 105).  The March, 2006 issue of Black Enterprise is available at most newsstands and bookstores.
Saying is Just the Beginning
Saying what you desire is just the beginning. To realize your vision, you must be willing to take the actions necessary to succeed.  So, what's it going to take to step out with commitment and resolve?  Exchange your pessimism for permission to achieve.  Then, create a powerful and rock-solid plan to do the unimaginable.  

Sometime in Between Nine and Now  by Fran Briggs
Remember when you were really young?  It was an era of inconsequential innocence.  Still, even at this age, your imagination was larger than large.  Seemingly effortlessly, you concocted boldacious thoughts and dreams.  You could pretty much imagine, and then do anything you set out to do.


It was a time when you had big dreams; and even bigger expectations.  As a youth, you had your psyche naturally tuned into being, having, and doing more every single day.  However, sometime -- between the ages of nine and now-your ambitions became ambivalent, blurry and unfocused.  It wasn't long before you lost sight of your most deepest desires.

What happened?
Quite possibly, you allowed people, thoughts and things to distract you just enough to obscure your inner vision.  Today, neglected and rejected are the desires of your heart, and the goals you willfully let depart. 
Tell me, what ever happened to that hot, shiny, new, sports car you promised yourself you'd own someday?  What about that ideal career?  Remember?  It was supposed to help you realize that quality of life you talked about so much. Just because your dreams are out of your view, doesn't mean that they are not within you.
Wouldn't you like to see them again?  

 You have the ability to create and connect with all of your desires.  What are you waiting for?  Dump all of your disempowering thoughts and beliefs.  It's time to clear things up on the inside.  Only then will you manifest what you truly desire ... on the outside.

What Do You Expect?

 Did you know that what you expect to happen -- what you truly believe in your heart -- can actually create what does happen?  Do this: instead of doubting something can be achieved, focus on what you would like to see happen instead. Use all of your senses as you visualize your ideal outcome.  Watch your words.  Make sure they reflect, what you expect. 
Reminders to Love by Hattie Pembrook
Today I found myself nursing depression and a definite sense of lack and deprivation. I received a phone call from a friend who reminded me that any doubt in feeling abundant and cared for is a stoppage that holds back my good. This was such an awesome reminder in that I know every single thought I have is imprinted on my mind and heart and is made manifest in my life... To read this essay in its entirety, please go to

Emotion: Energy in Motion
Emotion is literally translated as energy, in motion.  Interesting.  The next time you are approaching a task or preparing to perform or present, choose an emotional strategy.  Ask yourself, "What emotion can move me to the level I need to be at?" This is an important key to peak performance and maximum achievement. 

P.Q.s: Power Questions

P.Qs. -- or Power Questions -- are used to introduce your mind to new information and options.  They are intended to shift your paradigm, thoughts and beliefs ... towards the greater.  Ask yourself these three, empowering questions.  Then, immediately follow up with specific, supporting action.  The action you take serves as a catalyst for change that can transform your life and create a healthier, wealthier and more vibrant, you!


What ways can I stay passionate today?

What's the most important action I can take right now?


How can I make my next hour, a power hour?
