Follow these steps to elevAte Yourself…
“ The great courageous act that we must all do, is to have the courage to step out of our history and past so that we can love our dreams.”-Oprah Winfrey
July Baby is that you??? Is it just me or is this year flying by ? These days you can find me traveling with either my backpack for school or a duffle bag with business tools setting up just about anywhere to keep the knowledge flowing….. I would be naive if didn’t share with you … The moment you decide you want more for yourself it is going to cost you the old version of yourself . .. yes I get it we out here #BookedandBusy ( Sis I GOT GOALS) BUT did you know that you can be Booked and Distracted.. GIRLLLL
You are not alone . I have been in the seat next or across from you more than once . It was not until I made the decision to want more from myself and make the commitment to me for me . Have you noticed we will bend our backs for the ones we love but when it comes to ourselves we can easily brush it off until the next day . If you are In a space where you are ready to want more these gems will allow you to do that and more .
You Have To believe you deserve it
Yes you … everything you think about yourself starts with your perception. I recently wrote about The Power of Belief . What are some behaviors that you have adopted?or better yet . Are you speaking positive over yourself and anything that your name is attached too ? Let me give you an example of what that looks like
“ I have this little business “…. let’s try this again
” I run a Global business that empowers women of color to Be Fearless, Brave and Phenomenal.”
Speak life over what you create even if it has not fully flourished yet .
2. Dedicate and focus on the craft
This is when we spend time learning more about our purpose and mission. That means read the books , listen to the podcast , go to the conferences . Now it won’t happen over night but what I know for sure is …if you are committed you will not lose .
3 . Surround yourself around positive people
The company you keep is critical to yourself and your growth . We are not designed to do everything on our own , that is why it is extremely important that the people we have around us are Positive, Honest ,Supportive and lastly have something going on for themselves. If you are the smartest person in your group and you are not growing you are doing yourself a huge disservice.
Don’t not become small for people , who refuse to grow !!!
4. Track your progress
Without a plan or strategy you will travel in circles. Keep a journal and write down what your working on , write your goals, and track your progress .When we write it down we are making an agreement with the universe that this is what we want and what we are working towards . We have 184 days left of 2019 .. we ain’t got time for anything that does not serve us .
