JOURNEY TO YOUR CORE: WINNING part 3

  1. The race is personal
  2. The prize is subjective
  3. The price is similar; effort/energy/sacrifice

No matter what race or battle you are in, for everyone this is a personal struggle and fight. Some people are in a race, fighting for their life on a sick-bed, they just had a traumatizing diagnosis, they need to win, live. Others are fighting for their loved ones, in prison, custody, race for time to save those in battle. Some races are for the sake of the dignity of a human soul, a race to gain back control of your life, freedom, you want to win at being you, without any restrictions or from some negative people in your life, you are in a race to learn something, learn to forgive, let go, move on, let in, love. Everyone is in a race to win, but each race is very different

The prize is subjective, definitely, what each person is fighting for has a different meaning at the end when they win. No two prizes will feel the same, the accomplishment of each goal means something different for each one of us

The price is similar, yes, no matter what race you are in, it involves energy, movement, action, and also sacrifice. Depending on what you want to win at, it will not happen without some level of action. So, ask yourself. You might want to win win win, but, do you know what race you’re in, do you have the tools for your journey, do you have help, a team effort, what prize are you playing or gunning for, and are you ready to do what it takes, sacrifice, put in effort and energy?

Thank you, I hope you enjoyed this short training on WINNING. If you did, please let me know and also share with you friends and social media, that they too can be blessed. Do not forget to leave your comments and for more questions, email me at pearlsofourlives@gmail.com

Be blessed, lead with you heart, and do your best. Enrich your life and the lives of others

Journey to Your Core: VIDEO – WINNING part 2

 

“No one wins a race alone, to win you need a team” Mah

In part two of the topic on WINNING, I spend 5 minutes discussing two main things, no matter what race you are in, no one wins a race alone, every winner needs a team! What race are you in, and who is on your team? Are you struggling by yourself, are you in a race that will take years to accomplish, which could have taken just a few months had you found a good team? How about, in the case where you are winning, who are you taking with you on this journey? Are you lending a helping hand to someone else?

HAPPY LABOR DAY AND THANK YOU!!!

WOW,

It seems like the month is already halfway gone and it literally just started, but I am full of joy and gratefulness, it might as well be Christmas time already. Oh words can’t express exactly how I feel. Just last week Wednesday, September 2nd, I celebrated my birthday and the launch of my company, Pearls of Our Lives LLC, your home for Positive Enrichment inspiration and Coaching. The only place you will find this brand of organic and down-to-earth inspiration and practical skills to help you lead a more enriching life full of meaning, no matter what you are going through.

I received so many birthday messages and words of encouragement, I was truly overwhelmed, touched by the power of people coming together for one purpose, to lift up another human being, and this time, it was me in your hands, high up in Visionland. I did not know that many people could possibly affect my life, even from so far away, and some of you, I have not yet had the honor and pleasure of meeting you yet, but I hope that as you make me a part of your life, that I can continue to affect you positively through my pearls of wisdom, and some good day we may meet.

I recorded this video, to say a huge thank you and welcome, for those of you who do not yet know me, please do not go anywhere. This is a labor of love, of self-discovery, which has led me to the fulfillment of one of my many dreams. I ask humbly, that you to stay with me as you see that dreams do come true, in this case, mine, to become an inspirational self-development coach, for people, who need comfort, a healing word, clarity where there is confusion and a voice of love, just to say I care and I know that you can make it. I feel most especially called to women, women who are struggling to balance life, as mothers, sisters, wives, professionals, and who go through difficult times managing the upheavals of life. The decisions we have to make, the choices we are forced to make, and as an immigrant, who grew up in Cameroon, West Africa, now living in the United States, I feel I know what you are going through. I can speak to your situation, I understand YOU, dear woman. Help is here, you do not need to live this life struggling through decisions alone. Stop by here for a word, call me privately for a free consultation, or just to say hello. Make use of this resource I am offering, reach out for help.

Remember, you are worthy all by yourself, because you exist on this earth, no man or woman gives you worth, it comes from inside, therefore, no man or woman should make you feel worthless. Positively enrich your life, and the lives of others.

Thank you all, be blessed

YOU ARE YOUR THOUGHTS

YOU ARE YOUR THOUGHTS

Our thoughts are made up of a lot of things, some of which are intrinsically generated by our desires and deliberate action of thinking in a certain direction. However, these are not the only factors that make up the noise and activity in our head, our mind, and our heart. A huge percentage of our thoughts comes from input we get externally, all our portals and windows into our soul, our mind: the things we see, hear, feel, smell, taste, experience, encounter, and our instinct. We consume an enormous amount of information, data that is random and some, not so random. In essence, the totality of what we think is a salad bowl of more that what we desire to think about, is based largely on input. From that point of view, the true us, is really not reflected in the sampling of our mind. Yet, we are, our thoughts, and I will explain further.

You see, while we may not be the author of every thought in our mind, we have the authority to control how much external data we let in our heads, and how much of that information we allow to dwell and take residence in our head. We have the capacity to program our brains to work for us, to predispose us to a mindset of positive thinking, thus positive outcomes as much as possible, or we can allow the brain to be at the mercy of every passing data and for that data to dwell and morph into whatever interpretation or effect it wants. What we allow to take root in our mind becomes our belief system or has the power to influence what we put out through the same portals: what we say, how we act and react, and the energy we put out. What comes in, goes out.

My short video is intended to be a helpful tool in dealing with one of the ways we can set ourselves up for control of the data that comes in our head and how to react to it. START YOUR DAY RIGHT. A simple step, such as paying attention to your thoughts in the first 20-30 minutes of your day, is powerful in taking ownership of what disposition you want your brain to be in. You can decide for yourself, that although you cannot control the words and actions of others, you will control how your mind receives those experiences, and you will set the tone you want for your day. Enjoy the video, ask me questions and join to further the discussion. Think about these tips as you learn to start your day right:

– Wake up expectant every morning, determined to own your day

– Wake up grateful, there’s always something to be thankful for, like the breath of life

– Dedicate a few minutes of your 24 hours to map out what you desire for your life that day

– You’re your thoughts, for what you think, you speak & create. De-clutter your thoughts, you’re worth more than junk

PAINFUL GROWTH

When we grow chronologically, there is no guarantee that we are also increasing mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. It takes intention, choice, and work to increase our level of understanding. The experiences we go through as night turns to day and day to night, provide the substance for the work. As we navigate the substance of life’s experiences, we fall, rise up, learn, strive harder, work harder and the cycle continues year after year until we die.

Learning is not always a given, we must choose to learn or see the lessons in our experiences. When we miss the lesson, life has a funny way of bringing us back to that learning curve until we get it and make better choices. If we are lucky, it rotates back to the same person so we do better, or it presents with someone different and we do better there; it does not matter who, it matters more what we learn from it.

We will always be challenged, we will always fall as long as we live, but our choice to rise when we fall is totally up to us. How we rise after a fall depends on what we lean on or use as a crutch. We can rise up kicking and screaming with rage, denying the truth, insisting on our righteousness, and many other defense mechanisms, or we can rise up in truth, acceptance, and change, knowing we have more lessons ahead to prepare for.

When we find that it is hard to let go then we need to pause, stop thinking about them, the circumstances, the job, the anger, the child, the bereavement, the divorce, – just STOP thinking externally. START looking inside. All those things that happened are done. Now it’s all about our intentional work towards spiritual growth and healing. It takes practice, it’s scary, and hard to face who we are, what we see about ourselves. Just remember, when we do it right, the result is an amazing self-love, self-respect and love for others. When you have learned to do your work, you won’t let anyone take that away from you, you protect your growth and help others respect it, all with love.

Ask yourself today, when it comes down to choosing, what are your choices? Do you choose what is just, or what is easy to swallow, do you choose to uphold truth in yourself and others, or slide it conveniently under a rug. What do you fear?

There’s peace in standing for something knowing you have done your best.

REMOVE THE CHOKEHOLD 

… So, are you holding on to unforgiveness? Are are holding your breath waiting for your offenders to croak from your unforgiving chokehold and expire? You sure? So why are you still holding on so tightly?

Forgive and move on, don’t ask too much, why?, just make the decision to forgive, which means letting go the chokehold that event, person or people have on you. You see, letting bitterness take over is actually a new chokehold you put around your own neck. So, again, forgive and move on. Don’t think too hard, cause in essence, you’re freeing yourself!

LOOKING FOR MENTORS & MENTEES

ANNOUNCING A MENTORSHIP PROGRAM 

To whom much is given, much is expected. Announcing A Mentorship Program. I have been thinking about this for a long time, but I always stopped myself from starting it because I never felt like I had anything yet that I could share in a significant way. Yet, when I think about the fact that no matter how little our gifts or limited our resources, there’s always someone who could benefit from the small we are willing to share. I know, because even I crave and seek mentors who are even just one step ahead of me in what I’m doing or trying to do. I know the value of a leg-up. So, the buck starts with me/us.

If you are interested in Positive Enrichment, motivating others, writing and just starting the process of chasing your dreams, but you’re nervous, afraid to start your own blog, or don’t know where to go, I’m willing to share the little space I have so far. 

For closet writers or artistically gifted on any content that is teaching & uplifting like : health, food, poetry, business & technology, photography, art, motivation, or video blogging, email me at pearlsofourlives@gmail.com. Present a snippet of your content & what you’re looking for. 

Selected content will be featured on my blog pearlsofourlives.com, or on my  new YouTube channel Pearls of Our Lives. For content I’m good at, I’ll mentor on what I know. For others I will point you to other mentors

FOR MENTORS

IF you’re interested in being a MENTOR or Big Brother / Big Sister in your genre of expertise, let me know & join the cause to give back. We are Connecting Angels 

It takes a village, let’s share, rise & shine together 😊

WHOSE GREAT LIFE IS IT?

Arise and let your greatness shine! What is in your way? Who is in your way and why? Who are you carrying in your heart & for what reason? Why cloud your aura with darkness when you could so easily be light.

A tragedy to maturity if you carry a grudge out of solidarity to a mob action rather than being able to say you have been personally afflicted by this person or people.
If you justifiably were afflicted, it’s January, forgive & move on, it’s for you, not them, for your peace! Smile and rise! Open your heart, mind & soul for the blessings that await you. Enrich others be enriched my friends

THE DECISION

Today I am addressing the small steps one can

sometimes fail to make, while looking at the very

big picture. First, DESIRE. Well, that is not such

a hard thing in today’s world. One look at a photo,

a location, we hear an idea, and it is easy to desire

it, the mental image is instantly gratifying. Now,

how do we get from desiring to acquiring? Not

to make it too simplistic, but, a simple thing such

as deciding to get it, makes a difference.

DECLARE THY GREATNESS

Enrich your life with your declarations.
Don’t be afraid to declare your commands to the universe. You have major power within you, if only you choose to harness it, and use it for your greatness. Choose life, speak it, then own it. Pick wisely what you ask, for you attract that which you desire. Enrich your mind!
