Success Strategies

Purpose. A Story: A Single Image

Years ago, in my graduate Health Administration class at the University of Florida, I was the only person of color. Then later at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, again I was the only person of color in my class in the field. Maybe naive but it seemed rather strange to me. But I persisted, and graduated. After spending years in medical practice management I look around and find myself in a strange situation. Though I’m qualified with experience the same situation haunts…a person of color who must work harder to prove that hey…, I can do the job.

The world can make us ponder the relevance of life…, of things that should be so straight forward, yet they defy the odds. We look out and there seems to be only dark woods. For those who are not strong enough, they give up. Some find rescue in the ditches. For those who are stronger, they hold onto a clutch until they can stand again.

Today be encouraged. Stand tall for the light will shine again. It is just around the corner. So keep your eyes open so you won’t miss it. Stay on purpose…, be strong. Don’t Give Up. Keep Going.

I Write Because….

FullSizeRender (14)

I write because…hmmm…I don’t know (smile). I have never really given much thought to it. Maybe it’s because it’s in me and I love doing it! I’m at peace when I write. I write because maybe there’s a Focused sense of urgency. Throughout my life I remember my mom ‘writing‘ her book. Her story. She wrote in hardcover note books, pieces of paper, typewriter. Then years later she died with her story still inside.

I write because my sister too wanted to write her story. Ravished by cancer, she was hardly able to concentrate. A teacher by profession, she wrote in journals, in her phone, computer, anything she could get her hands on. Then as death drew near, she voiced her writings.

But for me as I reflect on this prompt, I now write with that sense of urgency to get what’s inside of me ….what I’m pregnant with… to give birth to the dreams, and thoughts of those who gave something deep inside of them, but wasn’t able to share. I write because I have learned from the mistakes and mishaps of others.

I gave my writing a push-start with my first common entrance exam for placement in high school back when I was only 10 years old. Even now I can remember clearly how much I enjoyed writing that short story; that essay. For me it didn’t seem like an exam. Staring at my past as I journeyed, this passion seemed to have followed me throughout life as a HR expert when I wrote policies. As a health administrator, I did all the writings for the medical practices, rummaging through those ceilings of state and federal business applications for practice management came so easy to me. Later, as I gleaned over my doctoral research, not only did I write my research but I published it my first book on Success Strategies.

With renewed zest, I now write not only for enjoyment but to encourage others that they too can accomplish whatever they want to achieve in life. I envision a world where everyone can be successful, however they define it…., whatever ‘it’ means to them. That my dear readers is why I write.

Thank you WordPress team for refining my skills to my audience. One love!

Cheers!

Blank Stare of Memories

FullSizeRender (13)

Some days I just sit quietly and reflect. Life evolves, but the more I stare blankly into the distance, I become certain that the more things change, the more they remain the same. So the conclusion is to do what we can to help another person survive, thrive and succeed life’s evolving chain. To bask in the memories of those who sacrificed for us and more.

While so engaged, let the words of Dionne Warwick’s song ring….

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That’s what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I’ll be on your side forever more
That’s what friends are for…
Keep smiling.One Love

Bricks to Success

FullSizeRender (4)

Brick means to block. Figuratively speaking, it means to eternally preserve what is inside. It can be good; it can be bad. It all depends on your perspective.

We all have dreams and aspirations we would love to become reality. But life’s challenges such as financial constraints, sickness, job loss, failure, and other agonizing surprises often hit us like a ton of bricks, and we are thrown off balance. These brainy quotes appeal to our senses. Take what you wish from these quotes … again, it all depends on your perspective.

…… Life is a learning process and you have to try to learn what’s best for you…. life is not fun when you are banging your head against a brick wall all the time”.  -John McEnroe.

 I just go with the flow. I follow the yellow brick road. I don’t know where it’s going to lead me, but I follow it”.   -Grace Jones

Focus on the prototype”. No matter your background, skill set, or passion in life, starting and growing a successful business can be done with the right combination of hard work, determination, and seizing the opportunities that come your way.

Refuse to accept failure.

 

Chase Jarvis, CEO of CreativeLive

Scratch your own itch.” Go after solving a problem that you have. When things get hard if you’re not going after something near and dear to your heart, you won’t have the fortitude, and passion to stay with it.

John Acuff, New York Times bestselling author

Success takes hustle”.  Hustle is an act of focus, not frenzy. Hustle is about subtraction and addition. It’s not about doing more, it’s about focusing on the things you need to do, in order to move your business forward.

Luis Howes Author of the School of Greatness. Professional athlete turned entrepreneur.  Suffered injury and was forced overnight to discover a new way to live with purpose.

Follow your heart”.

Nir Eyal, author of Hooked.

Certainty is more dangerous than ignorance”. It’s up to us to see the world as it should be. When you’re sure of the way things are, that’s when you get passed up and you don’t see the opportunities real entrepreneurs envision.

A PROMISE OF SUCCESS
by Michael Sage

Ones potential is so huge, and so vast,
Yet, why is it, that so many fail, and usually come last?,
So few truly succeed, that when they do, others are jealous and totally aghast,
Let’s all believe in success, and I promise that failure will be part of the past.

The things you think, and the things you believe,
If they are true, then those are the things that you will achieve,
But if your thoughts are false, or they are used to deceive,
You’ll be stabbed in the back, and that is a promise that you had better believe.

Get rid of depression, worry and fear,
Because success is so often so very, very near,
Tell your subconscious ,  “success is mine”, and tell it to hear,
Remind it often, then success will be yours, that is a promise, my dear.

Just ask the “DIVINE”, for whatever you desire,
For happiness or abundance, or anything else to which you aspire,
It’s now time to succeed, so go ahead, set your goals, and light that fire,
Do it with passion, and I promise you this, you’ll soar higher and higher.
