Let's examine what's coming out of our mouth?

Have you ever asked someone how they are doing? Have you ever asked someone how things were going? Have you ever stopped to really listen to what comes out of their mouth?  I know first hand that life can be hard. Things we go through can tear us up into pieces. 
Have you ever examine what's coming out of your mouth? Do we complain about anything and everything.
Just some food for thought....instead of complaining about the thankful that whatever it is your facing will make you stronger and wiser.  Remember whatever your going nothing compare to what someone else might be going through.....replace complaining with a brighter outlook on the situation. I know it can be hard. But remember God knows we can handle whatever it is your facing.

And I know that if the complaining will Change Your Life!  Why? Because complaining is just another form of being negative. Thinking negative. Therefore if we replace complaining with a positive will change things into positive outcomes.

Is fear keeping you from making changes in your life?

What is fear?  If you look it up on states Fear is a distressing negative emotion induced by a perceived threat.

Two words stand out to me in that definition...the first is negative and the second is emotion. 

How many times have you wanted to make changes in your life? Be it work related, relationship related, health related, the list can go on and on. But what has stopped you is fear...a negative thought, a negative emotion that makes you feel scared

Remember if you want to make successful changes in your life you have to BELIEVE, STAY POSITIVE, HAVE FAITH, AFFIRM that you CAN make any change in your life.

I know what it's like to "feel" like you can accomplish anything. But once I changed my MIND-SET.  I began to put in practice things I had learned from my mentors. I started seeing doors open like I hadn't imagine.

Don't let negativity be part of your life! Remove negative thoughts from your mind. Start learning how to improve yourself. Invest in some Self-Help audio. I love listening to these positive messages when I am driving around.  I love music but sometimes I just love receiving powerful messages that will help me improve my life. That change my life for the better. 

So I ask you this


What is your fear?  Keep in mind when a baby starts learning how to walk they fall several times before they accomplish their very first maybe you'll have to fall several times before you reach your goal!!  If a baby doesn't give up WHY should you?

You are a strong person. You CAN do it!! I believe in YOU!! Believe in yourself and don't let fear stop you!!

** Please feel free to share your story if you've overcome fear in anything in your life or if you are struggle with fear ** List it in my comments section...or email me at   I would love to hear from you...Take care and God Bless!!

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
The palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Words that will "Change Your Life" - Faith - Believe - Positive Thinking - Affirmations

So I've talked about motivation, being determine to change your life. There are some important words I want to share with you, if you apply these words to your everyday life - I know you will be able to
 Change Your Life
for the better.  
Faith      Believe      Positive Thinking        Affirmations

I want to share a personal story about the power of having faith and believing in your positive thinking along with adding affirmations to it all to reach your goals and change your life.

If you don't know me, I love fitness! I became passionate about helping others through my own struggles. So I decided to become a personal trainer and teach group fitness classes. Being a fitness coach wasn't enough for me, I wanted to do more.

Here is the story. We all know the job market is struggling right now. People are losing jobs. Back in November, I was praying, hoping, and looking for a job in a fitness center. I haven't finished my certification to train but I wanted to put my foot in the door. 

I remember like it was today, I was looking at the Internet and I was at the website of the fitness center in my town that I wanted to work at, I said to myself it doesn't hurt to send them an email and introduce yourself.  I did just that.....I remember I wrote a short message ( I didn't know who was going to get that message because it was a contact us type of form ) but in this message I wrote I had several years of customer services experience and that I was studying to become a personal trainer, that I taught a group fitness class - basically I reached out and say I was available to start at any position that they might have.

To my surprise (I didn't know) I got a reply the next day that they were hiring a weekend assistant manager...I was so happy.  Of course they wanted to interview me.

Well, this was Friday, when I got the make a long story short...I went by the fitness center on Monday, had a interview with the billing manager. I went to my second interview on Wednesday, with the night manager. About 30 minutes later, I got the call that I got the job. GREAT, right...Well let me tell you things that happen before all this went down.

Taking it back to early in 2010, when everyone was losing their jobs. I know because I had lost my job in 2008, when everything started going down hill.

I would pray and ask God to help me land a job in a fitness center. I'd pray but I wasn't putting my thoughts into action having "faith" or "believing" that positive things to happen in my life. Why? Because sometimes we listen to much to others whom offer negative advice, negative suggestions!

So what did I do? Early that year...I started to "self-help" my  thoughts! I have learn that you have to believe that positive things will happen in your life. Remove all that negative junk from your thoughts, from your mouth. Remember I've said "Words Have Power", what are you speaking? Speak blessings into your life. Speak good things all the time. I know this world can be tough. Believe me I know!! But I started having a bigger type of faith.   Let's face it, I believe in Christ. The King of Kings, I am His child! Why wouldn't good things happen to me!

Well as I stated, I stopped listening to negative words...replace my thought with POSITIVE Thoughts! I kept believing! Don't let anyone put you down. Put your dreams down. Put your goals down! Keep you from believing that good things will come to you.  I don't want to sound like I'm preaching but I've learned so much from helping myself learn that we have to change our mindset! 

I would recommend that if you are having trouble with believing or having positive alittle self-help audio listening. My iPod is full of positive selp-help audio. I love it!

Remember the bible says "Ask & You shall receive! God wants to pour His blessings down to us BUT we have to Believe!!

Well, like I said...I got the job in less than a week...during this time I had people in my life offering negative vibes. But I refuse to listen and let that take my mind off my Positive Thinking!!

" No problem can ever be bigger than me, as I have my biggest GOD with me to solve that."
