SPRINGING FROM ROCK BOTTOM

When you have truly hit your rock bottom, and you know you have put your absolute best forward, never, ever give up, keep on hoping, keep on believing, keep on working, your break through is around the corner.

In those moments when your break through doesn't seem like it's coming to fruition spend time:

1. Evaluating your actions. Have you really tried hard enough or are you still short changing yourself by not putting forth your absolute best.
2. Brainstorm to find other ways or techniques you can employ to maximise on your efforts.
3. Get a mentor, someone who has excelled in your desired field and draw information from them. Have them guide you.
4. Do a thorough research in your field, maybe you are missing something that can assist in your growth.
5. Relax, your break through is around the corner.

One of my favorite stories in the bible, is the story of Joseph. Before he was elevated he had truly hit his rock bottom. Think about it, how much lower could he have gone? But there are two things Joseph did that we should pay attention to and imitate: 1. He never allowed his resume to grow cold.
 Even in jail, he continuously put forward his best, having excellent work ethic and constantly growing. Lesson: Never slack off even at the bottom. 2. He worked his network of friends by asking his jail mate who was about to be released to remember him when he got elevated. Lesson: Work your list of contacts, you never know who will assist in your growth.

Please stay true to your calling, don't get discouraged. You were made to fly.

HAVING EXCELLENT VISION

I remember sitting in my car one day praying about making a particular decision in my life, and really wondering if God was hearing me. After praying I opened a magazine that was sitting in my lap, and there in front of me was a quote with a picture of the very thing I was praying about. The quote said, "Vision is looking beyond the obvious, success is doing something about it". Wow, that got me to the very core.

How many times have we wavered in making a decision that we know will forever alter the course of our lives in a positive way? How many times have we allowed our fear to dictate our next move? "God places the best things in life on the other side of our fear" Will Smith. It is moments when things don't seem to be coming through that fear and doubt tend to creep in. Understand that the will to persevere doesn't come easy. But if you are confident that this is what you were called to do and you will know because that desire keeps eating at your core, you persevere, you step out in confidence and you work harder than you have ever worked before. I promise you, it will come to pass. I must add, that to really know your true calling, you should pray and ask for guidance, I am sure God will provide a clear, concise answer by driving you towards His purpose for your life.

We thrive on certainty. No one wants to make a decision that one is not sure of its outcome. But I have learned from my own experience and the experience of others that stepping out into uncertainty isn't such a bad thing. "Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe and enthusiastically act upon, must inevitably come to pass" Paul Meyer.

So if the goal is to go back to school and complete your diploma or degree, step out of your fear, and your doubt and make it happen. If your goal is to choose a different career, one which rewards You as a commissioned agent instead of a salaried person. Then by all means, you go for it. You have to step out of your fear and doubt and make it happen. The greatest challenge may be from loved ones who out of an abundance of caution, may give what could be considered as negative advice. Step out of your fear and doubt and push push push towards your goal. Dont let anyone clip your wings, YOU WERE MADE TO FLY.

I encourage you to step out and make your dream a reality.

STOP GAZELLING IT THROUGH LIFE

Every day in the Safaris in Africa the gazelle wakes up with one intention. That is to run for its life. The gazelle understands that for it to survive, it has to run away from the lion, it also has to be a tad bit faster than the weakest gazelle. The weakest gazelle is guaranteed being eaten. The problem with the second weakest gazelle is that it may survive today, but it will be eaten tomorrow.

Everyday in the Safaris in Africa the lion wakes up with one intention. That is to run to sustain it's life. The lion understands that for it to eat, it has to run towards the gazelle. But unlike the gazelle that depends on another's weakness in order to survive, the lion embraces the strength of each individual in the pride (group).

Many lessons can be learned from the characteristics of both animals:
1. Stop spending life running away from something. Become a lion who spends it's time running towards its goal. Embrace opportunity when it comes your way.

2. Don't become the second weakest link. In other words don't do just enough for sustenance, or survival, put your best foot forward. That determines whether you live or survive.

3. Embrace each other's strength instead of relying on someone's weakness. It's not ok to highlight someone's weakness in order to make ourselves feel good. As humans we do it all the time. If we are truly honest with ourselves we will find instances on a daily basis where we compare ourselves to others and pat ourselves on the back for being better. Becoming a lion in personality means that we understand that we achieve and accomplish much more by working together and embracing and highlighting each other's strength.

My hope is that we will run towards our goals, put our best foot forward and embrace each other's strength instead of highlighting their weaknesses.

Have an amazing day or night. Please text, email, Facebook or leave your comment below.

ME?? DIABETES!!!!!!! WHAT THE HEALTH😓😓

As most of you guys know,  I recently had a baby. As is expected, pregnancy comes with various tests one of them for gestational diabetes. Of course this isn't my first baby and being the person who always cherished myself on eating fairly healthily, a gestational diabetes diagnosis was no where close to my mind. That was a shocker and a bummer. I have no history of diabetes in my family that would be directly tied to me. Not my mom, dad, none of my aunt's. Uncle's or grandparents on either side. My older brother was diagnosed but he has a history of diabetes from his mother's side. Not a direct link since I'm not related to them. So what in the world? Could it just be my diet? My doctor recommended a diet which I followed and after seeing that the baby was very underweight at 8 months, he had me add ensure to my diet.

After giving birth and being a science student I couldn't help but worry about the fact that now I had a greater chance of developing the disease later in life. But something just didn't sit well with me. I really wanted to know what causes diabetes. If diabetes has to do with a malfunctioning pancreas then what causes the pancreas to malfunction.

Without going too scientific on you guys, I want to add, that I believe, any disease that is diet related can be cured with diet. But I wasn't doing that much research to find peer reviewed literature regarding the subject.  However I came across this video which I had been hearing about from my friend and after finding a link on YouTube I've decided to share, it has been such an eye opener. I hope people will be more inspired to take their health into their own hands.

The video entitled "What the health 2017, you are what you eat" on youtube speaks to the causes of some of the most popular diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Please check it out on YouTube then leave me a comment. It's over an hour long, but worth every single second.

Would love a feed back.
