Success Strategies Workbook

While you’re there visit my booth and pick up a copy of my NEW Success Strategies WORKBOOK! Now available! It’s the companion to the book Success Strategies of Caribbean American Leaders. It’s the result of a phenomenological study conducted with Nova Southeastern University that looked at why some individuals succeed while others don’t. Provides advice for individuals who are feeling overwhelmed, confused, discouraged, or stressed. It is easy to use and includes exercises on how to achieve your goals, take charge of your personal development, life, and career path!

Lots of Prizes & Surprises! Make it a date!

The World Before Social Media

The wired world before social media take down…Eerie!

Funny, but we were more connected. That said, no turning back. Let’s reflect, learn, use, and stay connected in the new age.

Cheers!

Copy That!

It’s almost the end of the year! Just two more months to go! Already the Holiday commercials are out in full swing! Not to mention Hallmark Christmas movies that share the longings, celebration, and joys of the season. Jolly that!

For me I love the beautiful Christmas lights! The cool weather! And the smiles that captivate even the Grinch at this time of the year. Sigh….

Goals: Where Are You Now?

But…as we stride into smiles of long shopping lists for business associates, colleagues, friends, and family, let’s pause and remember something very important…our Goals. What were the goals set for this year? Have you achieved them? Are you close to completing? Take a moment and reflect.

A Goal is something that you are trying to do or achieve

No matter where you are on your journey…pause and reflect. Don’t be hard on yourself if you are not as close as you would like….or haven’t started (yikes)! Play catch-up. Remember, a goal is something that you are trying to do or achieve.

In the next 2 months, update your goal to see what you can get done before the year is out. Call it short term, but make it count. Do not wait until next year…that’s a fallacy. To procrastinate is to give excuses. Don’t be a Copycat like others…set a short term goal and get it done now. You won’t regret it.

Be Bold

Be bold. Share your thoughts on where you are on your journey. One of the key steps in reaching your goal is to write it down. Sharing it makes it an open commitment that will help you on your journey, and by the way it’s not too early to start your plans for 2017.

So be bold! Share here since we’re all in the same boat.

Cheers!

Face Your Giant…

Giant…of very great size or force

Face your Giant.

What’s going on in your life that seems like a giant? Is it a career decision? A conflict on the job? A conflict at home with your spouse, kids or loved ones? When you ponder your future, does it look bleak? Well it does not have to be.

Fight the Good Fight

Oft we hide our pain. We brush it under carpets. We smile when deep down we are hurting. Today be encouraged. Step out despite your fear, your  tear, your troubling heart. Dig deep inside your soul and you will find the strength you need to fight the good fight; to face what lies ahead…to conquer your giant with faith.

Peace.

Life’s a Bridge…Detour.

Peace. Quiet. Calm. Leaves swaying in the wind. Overcast. Tiny rain drops. Light ripples dance in the lake. Couple sits quietly on bench enjoying quiet laughter. Tiny green lizard beckons. I’m scared as always.

30 Minutes Later

Lizard closer. Still windy. Cloudy. Overcast. No rain. Ripples still dance in the lake. Couple’s gone. Still quiet. Peaceful. Serene.

Detour

Why can’t our lives be like that? Without worries, fears, disagreements, cruel marketplace competition, and differences. Because…it comes with the territory. We must learn…grow and that only happens oft in times of turmoil.

If you are facing a roadbock, be like nature and Detour. Work to use obstacles, fears and life’s challenges to create opportunities to advance, learn, love deeply, and grow. Cross that Bridge. Detour today.

Succeed.

Words defy us.

At times we are at a loss.

Other times we need to Rearrange words, phrases, sentences.
