Setting boundaries for your best life

This post is inspired by my stress and wavering faith to stay motivated. As humans, it is in our nature to become attached and letting go seems trivial and difficult. However, any relationship (friendship, romantic, or work ) that does not have a balance or produce good vibes should not be allowed into your ‘threshold.’ I had a hectic weekend and after all of the latest challenges to enter my life, I haven’t been feeling quite motivated to keep going. Life is funny in that way. The reality is our lives can change in an instance.  In one moment things are moving along like a well-oiled engine and then the next, BAM! You get hit with a ton of bricks and are left picking up the pieces. We all have limits. You are human and you have needs. The longer you go on putting those needs ahead of others the more you will lose yourself. Think of in terms of a scale. If you keep allowing the people around to handle you their problems or ‘rocks’ as my …

Failure is a delay, not defeat…

Failure is delay, not defeat. Success takes time and for these and other reasons a lot people give up on their dreams because the beginning stages are always the hardest. When you’re having a tough time in life it can be hard to see the good in any situation. You start to believe that nothing can change and you begin to feel ‘stuck.’ Maybe things didn’t work out the way you expected. The right opportunities never came along. It doesn’t matter the reason, what matters is that that reason is what’s holding you back. Failure leads to multiple learning opportunities to becoming who you are meant to be. Feeling ‘stuck’ comes from a place of fear and limits. You are start to fear failure an avoid situations where failure is a possibility. Such as applying for a new job or avoiding serious commitment. When you say, “yes,” to your limits you are saying “no” to your possibilities.  Choose to be empowered by failure instead of weakened by it.  It is better to endure hardships live …

The benefits of having engaged employees

The current trend is to job hop, so don’t feel alone if you are having a hard time figuring out what you want to do. According to a recent Gallup poll millennials are least engaged at work with at least 60 percent being open to a new job opportunity. With the average tenure of a millennial employee being 2 years. Loving what you do has major benefits. One of them being more opportunities.  You will spend your time focused on what you’re doing and give it your best. Research has again when we hate our jobs we are not engaged and our productivity levels suffer. Now while I would love to see everyone in a real job they loved we live in a world where that is not being realistic. It may take time before you land a job you love but that doesn’t mean you can’t choose to be engaged in who are and what you are doing right n now. After all, what if you are right where you are meant to be? Now, …

Use this mantra to replace negativity with faith

It will please some of you tonight that I almost titled this. “What I learned from my year as a Debbie-downer,” it will please the rest of you to know that I learned the consequences of having a negative outlook. After losing my job I spent an entire year wallowing and complaining to anyone who had ears. I felt ashamed by my failure. The lack of income and security made me feel like I was losing control over my life. If only I knew how wrong I was in that moment. When something happens to us that forces us to transition it can seem uncomfortable and unfair. As much as my past brings me pain it also brings me joy because it made me who I am. The only regret I have is losing 365 chances to change things. I become consumed by my grief and pain that I ignored the small miracles that can be found in our daily lives. Today is a new day and you should treat it like one. Take this mantra with …
