"Life may throw some hurdles our way
but you don't have to stop!
You learn how to become great at jumping hurdles!"
Don't put aside your goals because
you're faced with a set back!
"Set backs are not stop lights!"
You may have to slow down even find a detour but you need to keep moving.
You see, dreams do come through! No one is promising you smooth sailing, but the truth is Your Dream Is Possible!
This is the example my divinely appointed father has set not only for me but ALL his children.
He has become a beacon that reminds us that focus and consistency will produce the dream.
Sometimes we can talk ourselves out of accomplishing our goals. That's because we are not clear as to what we want to achieve and lack focus and direction.
Many times I listen to people trying to give reasons as to why they can't accomplish the very thing they want, without realizing they are really making excuses or that the reason they claim they can't is actually the reason they need to.
In my capacity of coach I've heard so many reasons for “I cant”
“No one left an inheritance for me”
Well that ’s why you have to achieve your goals; so that you leave an inheritance for your kids.
“I can't because of my kids”
Actually you should because of your kids.
“I don't know how”
So, go learn how. There's nothing wrong with having to Google it.
You need to put all excuses aside, face your fears, revalue and reframe them,
then just take one step at a time.
Growing up I looked at my parents live through a recession with five kids.
Then my father was retrenched unexpectedly! WOW! What an impact that must have had on him.
Just before dad was retrenched he bought a brand new car.
Now, I've always been a daddy's girl and I was always around him, he is not only my father: He is my mentor, teacher, spiritual covering and adviser. I remember being so excited and over joyed when he allowed me to drive the car it into the garage!
When he was retrenched, inspite of the stress of that, my father didn't crumble or give up.
Instead what he did was, he took the car he had recently bought and turned it into a taxi. My mother, a homemaker, took her love for sewing and turned it into a small business. And together they raised five kids; all successful today.
Did my father go down financially? YES!
Did he give up? NO WAY!
I never gave thought of how unsettling and worrisome that experience must have been until I was an adult!
What I saw as a child was resilience and resourcefulness!
He raised five kids, all educated and successful, built a beautiful house, travels and lives debt free.
“The Blame games and pity parties won't help you succeed.”
Even in his down times, my father taught us by EXAMPLE to pray without ceasing, be honest,
save, be generous, be respectful, stay focused and always be grateful.
By his actions, he taught me to take whatever skill or resource I had and use it to build the life I wanted.
It's from this example I built the PRVM Performing Arts Academy and my Life Coaching practice. I took my love for singing and my care and compassion for people and made it my business. I used my simple goal setting system to move me along and keep me focused now I successfully walk in my passion, natural nature and divine purpose!
Today, I pass these principles to my kids and everyone in my circle of influence.
I happily look on as both parents still use their gifts but now for different reasons.
The saying when life throws a lemon make lemonade makes so much sense to me now.
So, I say when life throws you a lemon make lemonade and build the best lemonade franchise!
