How To Stay Focused To Accomplish Your Goals


The dedication and determination of athletes come to mind when I think about goals and life plans.

When on track running a race, the athlete does not care if you are cheering or booing him.

He has one simple focus make it to the finish line in record time.

The same attitude should be adopted by all when it comes to life goals or goals in general.

1. Keep your eyes on the finished line:

Like a focused athlete keep your eyes on the finished line.

You have set your mind to lose 10 pounds by summer. Keep that goal in mind.

Don’t wait for compliments and don’t allow discouraging words to dissuade you either.

Think about an athlete running at the Olympics, people in the crowd are cheering him some are shouting mean things to him.

Can you imagine the athlete stopping and responding to the crowd?

No, he won’t, as far as he is concerned the crowd does not exist.

Make up your mind to eliminate the noise and  keep your eyes on your end point.

2. Get Back up:

When you fall, get back up and keep moving forward. Know that it is possible to fall, but when you do, don’t stop there, keep moving forward.

When we set goals, and obstacles come our way what do you do? Just throw in the towel and move to another project or set new goals?

No!  You keep running towards our goals with your eyes set on the finish line like an athlete would.

Can you imagine an athlete giving-up during a competition?

Most likely not unless they sustain an injury. They don’t because they are determined and committed to their goals.

If you have set some goals for this month and it seems you are far from accomplishing them, go back to the drawing board and give yourself a candid assessment. Come up with practical strategies that will move you closer to dreams!

Don’t give up!

Stay Focused!

Can Love Really Last A Lifetime?

Couple or marriage in his new home

A friend told me he went to buy a tuxedo in Manhattan, New York a few years ago.

The shopkeeper asked what occasion he was shopping for. He mentioned that he was shopping for his wedding.

The man replied ” Do people still get married these days?”

Just like that man asked that question, many people wonder ” Can love really last a lifetime?’

Some even ask, ” Can I really find true love?”

My answer to both questions is  Yes!

You can find true love and love can last for a lifetime, if built on the right foundation.

Wondering how?

While there are many ways people approach this subject.

I choose to talk about the most fundamental approach.

One thing I have realized in my personal life and the lives of people I have had the opportunity to work with is that love flourishes when built on the right foundation.

The strongest foundation anyone can have is knowing the epitome of love. He embodies love, helps you to accept and love yourself the way you are as you journey to where you want to be.

Accepting love from anyone is only possible when you are in a secure place yourself.

If you are wondering who is the epitome of love? He is God’s son Jesus.

He can heal your pain of past hurt.

He can help you to accept yourself and love yourself for who you are

He can guide you to make the best relationship choice.

Life happens and when it does, He gives you the wisdom to navigate the challenges.

Wondering how to embrace God’s love?

It comes by saying a simple prayer and asking him to come into your heart.

The journey to a great relationship starts with you.

See yourself capable of loving selflessly.

See yourself as someone deserving of love

The journey starts in your mind.

As you think, so you are.

If you think you can, you will.

You can have a beautiful, flourishing relationship.

Let that believe take root in your heart.

Love who you are.

Determine to be the best you, you can possibly be.

Invest in materials that help you learn about building strong relationships.

Instead of thinking about what your partner is not doing, focus on their strength. Determine in your heart that you will add value to him/her.

The journey to a great relationship starts with you.

Your dream relationship is possible!

Start creating it now.

You can do it! Go for it!





Take The Limits Off – This Is How.


Recently I have noticed how  so many people place limits on their lives.

They say things like, “…people in my family do not do that well, how can I be different”

or ” …I wished I was raised in a different neighborhood, my life would have been very different”

I want to let you know, there is no limit to how far you can go in life.

If there is no limit in your mind, there is no limit in your life.

A young child has many influences in his life, parents and family members encouraging and speaking into him builds confidence in him, in most cases this child grows up believing in himself, growing a strong self-esteem.

Some are not that fortunate, growing up in an abusive environment and struggling to find an identity in life.

Irrespective of the family situation, life experiences and upbringing you might have, the moment you make decision to move up in life things begin to change.

My objective with this post is to help you realize you have all that you need to move up in life inside of you.

People might have talked down on you, your family may have given up on you, sad as that might be…it does not determine how far you will get in life.

The most important thing is that you do not give up on yourself, decide today to take things to the next level.

Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself “everything I need to make it to the top is in me!”

Create a new habit of encouraging yourself and building yourself confidence.

Stay away from people who talk you down and start surrounding yourself with positive and inspiring people.

Let everyday move you closer to your dreams!
