Message from Shyra

Do you have a ?herd mentality?? Do you feel that you need to do what others do so that you do not feel left behind or left out? Have you ever received an offer for an opportunity to join a club or a business and heard the famous line, ?This company is going places and you better join now while it?s in its beginning stage so that you don?t get left behind?? Or maybe in school, a party was going on and a friend might have mentioned, ?Everyone who?s cool will be there, so if you want to fit in, you need to be there too?. Sometimes in order to feel as if you are ?fitting in?, there are sacrifices made that may later cause consequences that are not always pleasant.

There are individuals who have emptied their savings accounts to get started in a business opportunity and in the beginning they attended all of the weekly meetings to assist with their motivation and to be privy to the sharing of sales techniques and recruiting techniques to pull others into the business. They began to do like the others and show how excited they were to be in the business and then gradually, this excitement began to ease and the realization dawned upon them that they?re in an even worse financial crisis than they were when they first began.

What went wrong? Or maybe we can ask, ?What went right?? This experience is a learning experience and sometimes a very costly one. There?s nothing wrong with getting excited about promoting someone else?s business or product, but why not let it be your own or at the very least one that you have some control over?

What are you getting at Shyra, you might ask? Well, I?m saying if someone else was intelligent enough to come up with an idea to recruit others to promote their business and make them more money, why not become THE ONE that provides a product and/or business opportunity and have others promoting for you? Invest that money into yourself and into your own product line. It?s not as difficult as you might think. Start researching on the internet today and find your niche market. It?s nothing wrong with ?doing your own thing?. Stand out and let the herd begin to follow you!

Living the Life You Have
By Michelle Weimer

"We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us." - Anonymous

Quite a statement, isn't it? However, I have to say that I don't totally agree with it. I don't think we have to completely get rid of the life we have planned.

I believe more that we should learn to actually live the life we have while we work towards the life we want. In other words, we must learn how to not let what we want entirely control the life that we are currently living. Rather, I believe we must embrace the present moment and love it for what it is.

I guess my point is that if we spend our life only focusing on what we want, we can miss all the wonderful things we presently have. I spent many years living that way and as I look back now, it makes me sad that I missed out on some wonderful opportunities to enjoy the moments that were before me. A wise man once told me that if I was waiting for the perfect time to act on something, I'd be waiting a long time because there's no such thing.

How are you living your life right now? Are you always waiting for just the right time to do something in your life? Are you holding out for things to be perfect? Is everything you do centered on your career? Do you miss out on other joys in your life because you are allowing your job to control you?

Now I know that it is important to strive for success. And I know that often it requires many long hours and hard work. But don't wait until things are just the way you want them before you take the time to enjoy other aspects of your life. I want to encourage you to think about how you can live and enjoy the life you currently have while you work towards the life that you desire. It's time to balance your life.

The first step is simple really; you must decide you want to change. And you must commit to making an effort to change. Sometimes, it's easier to be stuck in our miserable ruts then to try to get out of them.

Then you need to ask yourself some questions:

  • What do you value most in your life? Make a list and put the things you value in order, starting with the things that are most important to you.

  • Are you spending as much time on what's at the top of your list as you are other areas of life? If not, then why? What is keeping you from that? It's time to make changes in your life in order to focus on the things that are at the top of your list.

  • How can you make time to enjoy the life you have while you work towards the life you want? What can you change? It's very important at this point that you get the support you need, either from friends, family or a life coach. Making change happen isn't easy but it is possible and you must find ways to make that change happen.

And finally, you have to go for it. As I said before, sometimes it is easier to stay stuck in the rut that we are currently in as apposed to accepting the pains of change, but it's important to fight through it. It may not work right away, and you may have to revamp your adjustments, but it's time to find a place to start. I believe that small changes can make huge impacts. Simply getting up as little as five minutes earlier can change the whole course of your day. Give it a try; what do you have to lose?

I challenge you today to truly live the life you have while you work towards the life that you want!

Living Past the Yesterdays
By LaToya Brown, LMSW Author of Borrowed Water

2008 was one of the toughest years of my life. I lost my job, almost lost my home, had my utilities disconnected, and went hungry a time or two. However, it wasn?t the tangible losses that brought so much pain, it was the thoughts I had about myself that caused me to reevaluate my own significance. Now, I?m no stranger to obstacles and I?m a champion at overcoming pain. At an early age, I learned how to conquer the struggles and challenges I faced.

rowing up poor and having to borrow the bare necessities was common. I?ve lived in homes without electricity, food, and even water. I?ve had to face sexual abuse as a child, rape as a teen and having three children by the age of 17.

I learned early on how to fight. In my mind I was SUPERWOMAN. I stopped looking at these challenges as struggles, but only situations to be handled. I’d always been able to turn lemons into lemonade by setting and accomplishing my goals, but this fight was different--it was for my destiny.

These struggles reminded me of my past. The hurt, pain, disappointment, lack and poverty that crippled me for so many years came back to haunt me. I hadn’t realized that I attributed my success or failure to who I was.  I believed that my goals and accomplishments defined me. My goals for success came in the form of degrees, homes, and cars. “If I have it, then people will respect me” so I thought. I had always promised myself that I would never be poor or struggle like I did as a child. Yet I found myself feeling like that lost little girl all over again. Feeling hopeless, alone and rejected.

Regardless of what has happened, I am certain that I will win again. I will win the battle for my mind, my destiny and my future. Who I am is not defined by my success or my failures.  I am the dynamic woman that God says I am and nothing less.

We’ve all experienced struggles. However, it’s not the struggles we face, the hurdles we jump or the walls we come up against that determine our destiny. It is always our response to the situations and the choices we make that predict the outcome. We must realize that our goals, success or failures never determine who we are or who we’ll become. Don’t allow headache, heartache and mistake block you from being the person you were created to be. Your past doesn’t predict your future, so choose today to live past your yesterdays and believe toward inspired tomorrows.
