Why do some individuals succeed while others don’t? That’s the question many try to answer. We look at well-known artists like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and many more. We often hear people say…if only … If only I had the money of the rich and famous. But is that what success means? Pocket full of dough? More on this another time.
For now, we’ll just say that one thing most people don’t realize is that WE define who we are; what we want to Do with our lives, and how we are going to get there. That’s the basic reason this blog was TITLEd “Success Strategies“, not only because of the research done. This blog selects ideas from society’s successful leaders both those living, and those who have passed on such as renowned innovator Steve Jobs. These strategies I’ll continue to share, with the hope to inspire and motivate individuals to take action to get the result they want.
This leads to the purpose of the TAGLINE: Opportunity Knocks. Seize It. The intention is for us to encourage ourselves, colleagues, and loved ones to act now. To let an opportunity pass by is like to waiting on the metro service late at night, and when the train does come, wave it on with the excuse that you’ll wait on the next one to arrive.
Opportunity, opportunity. When it knocks, let’s take action and answer. Who knows, we may never get a second chance. So seize it.
I began this blog a few years ago but have hardly been consistent. As an individual in the business of Human Resource Management, and organizational leadership, my passion lies in the development of entrepreneurs, youths and individuals in transition. For that reason, I conducted a study for my dissertation on Success Strategies and decided to publish it recently in my book titled “Success Strategies of Caribbean-American Leaders in the United States”. In the book I sought to answer the question Why Some Individuals Succeed, While Others Don’t. It is now available on http://www.amazon.com, and http://www.barnesandnoble.com.
I am still writing with the intention of publishing the Success Strategies Workbook, as well as another book titled “GreenLight: When God says Go”. My intention here is to decide on what my audience prefers to hear, then focus this blog on that. This could be under the topics of leadership, success, inspiration, or lighter moments.
From participating in this new developing experience, I hope to be able to learn how to (1) improve this blog; (2) gain strong insights on how to advance; and (3) confidently connect with and grow followers.
Check out my blog https://successfulleaders.wordpress.com and I would most certainly welcome your comments and insights! Thank you.

We are stepping into a New Year! As always it is a time to reflect on the past where we have come, and the journey ahead. This year I didn’t get to do a lot of things I wanted to, but I experienced something new. I ventured into new territory and published my research on leaders and how they attained success! My book titled Success Strategies of Caribbean American Leaders in the United States is now available on Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble.com, and other sites. Can you believe it?
I am most excited because I started something that I believed in, persisted, and have completed it! I learnt a lot during the process.
This is my desire for you. To go after your dreams. No matter what it is—just simply Dream! Big or small! When you accomplish it, the feeling is exhilarating! As we approach the New Year, spend some time defining what Success means to you. What will it look like? How will you know when you have achieved it? Just Dream. But like I have always said, after you dream then you have to work that dream. Put the plans in place then step out and do what you must to make it real.
I’m not saying it’s going to be easy….no way am I saying that. But the most important thing is to persist. Never give up. When the going gets rough, have something or someone, (maybe a mentor), that will encourage you to keep going. You know I’m always here for you and anyone else that needs encouragement to achieve. I learnt this in my many years managing people. That’s what I do best. It brings me great joy watching people achieve their best potential…moreso you.
So darling, Dream big! Then step forward in faith! You will achieve Success if you never give up!
