Don’t Get Discouraged with the Current

Hello Family! I hope everyone is doing well! My bro Bryan has really been on me and pushing me to write and to organize a blog schedule, and need to say… it’s working thus far. So every Wednesday you can see a new blog post from me and you actually might begin to see more within a week 😊 Stay tuned

I just want to continue to encourage those that might be going through a season that feels like drought. What do I mean? You feel like you’re not accomplishing anything or nothing is getting done or you may feel like everything you touch falls apart or you’re just a car in park. This is what I’ve been feeling for the past 3 months. I have a few things on my plate that has to get done and those things sometimes will discourage me from really working on my dream or vision because I’m too busy working /worrying about the current.

The last 4 months for me have been kind of brutal financially. Honestly, I know myself and I know when something isn’t right. I would go to work and come home and crawl in the bed, and not get up until the next day. Here’s the kicker sometimes I would eat one meal and not eat again. Now y’all know your boy loves to eat! I was surely going through a season of drought and was overwhelmed without any navigation and couldn’t see any light through my tunnel.

I slowly begin to shift my focus and I was able to see my vision and dream ahead of my current. As much mess or drought you’re going through you must combat it with your dream. I started watching YouTube vids of others people journey and stories and I started reading books that would challenge my mind to stay focus on the future. My main issue was my thoughts. You have to find a way to calm down your mind and spirit. Many of you know I am a man of faith and I choose prayer and meditation and I must confess. I wasn’t doing my share of this during my drought. I wasn’t getting fed enough spiritually to combat what my natural intake would be. Soon after I was able to get back to the grind of building my brand and business and what’s so amazing and crazy at the same time, the stuff that had me down, some of it is still going on, but I’m able to go through it because I have my dreams before it.

I want to tell you to not give up. Please don’t give in. It’s not that bad and everyday you’re given a blank canvas to create, to publish and live. Don’t get so caught up in the bad that you neglect on the good and the good to come. I hope this nugget helps and encourages you on your journey. We got this, let’s make it happen

Wisdom for the Over-Thinker

So I was brainstorming some ideas of what to jot down from my next blog post and I wanted to write something that is heart filled but relatable. So begin to take inventory of what’s actually going on with me in this season, so here it goes.

Each and every year I make declarations for the year and one them was to take every opportunity that comes my way. Step out of the box and get out of the boat. I’ve noticed that my biggest hang up here is not knowing what the outcome will be. So, instead of messing something up or losing I just won’t try and would just press snooze on the opportunity. All of the voices would come and say…. I’m not good enough, try it next time, and I would simply overthink the opportunity and lose it and then be mad that I didn’t do it.

I’ve realized that this is a cycle that I have to break and the only way to break it is by doing the complete opposite of what those voices are telling you.

I remember up until 2 years ago, I never knew how to swim. When I was 11 I had an almost drowning experience and developed a fear for water. So after that 5 years, pass by then 10 and now I was a full adult and never knew how to swim. There were many opportunities that arose that would help me learn how to swim but I had just got comfortable with not knowing and never learning how to.

In 2016 a great friend of mines came to me and said we should take swimming lessons. Immediately I said ok, because I had to show her how strong I was and that I was up for the task but  instead I was so scared lol. We signed up for classes and the classes were made for adults learning to swim. It didn’t feel so bad once I started because I ended up being the youngest in the class.

If I had never stepped out of the boat of fear and grabbed the opportunity to learn how to swim I would’ve missed it. As an over thinker we must understand that everything doesn’t have to be over thought. Sometimes you just need to go with the wave. The outcome was great. I was so excited when I learned. I’m also able to put my head in the water while showering. (The fear of drowning really had me). All I’m saying is don’t let fear or doubt stop you from taking the opportunity that stands before you.

I pray and hope that you will begin to take the opportunity that is presented to you so that you can reach you destiny.
