Motivation Monday:This Is YOUR Year


 The beginning of a new work week in 2016. It’s time to go into boss mode. Those goals you wanted to implement last year back when you were so sure things were going to be different.  But guess what it’s a new year so what are you going to do? Just sit back and let the day go by! I hope not! 

I want to motivate you to start that business, take that class or trip! You can do it! Believe in yourself 100%. 

Time goes by fast and you’ll look up and it’ll be June then December and you’ll only have yourself to blame. 

So get to writing down those goals and execution plans. Don’t worry about the naysayers or “haters”. God got you all the way. But you have to believe in yourself first!

New Year, New YOU! Top 5 Things To Leave Behind In 2015


Hey ladies and gents!

I hope you guys have had a wonderful Christmas!

But now that the gifts have been given or in some cases returned! We know that 2016 is RIGHT around the corner. What is that you want to do that will help you reach that goal in life? What ever it is that you haven’t accomplished in 2015,  don’t fret! There is a new year coming that will help launch you into your new season. But there are just a few things that you need to leave in the past so you can grow and prosper. Let’s get into some of those things:

#1 Insecurities:

Yes! You have to get rid of insecurities. Leave all of your insecurities in the past they won’t do you any good. Whatever goals or resolutions you set in your mind. Do like Nike says, “Just Do It,” nothing in your life will feel as good as overcoming tough obstacles such as insecurities. Is there anything in life you’d always want to do? Write a book, go to college, travel the world, start a business, whichever it is you’ve always wanted to do GO GET IT!

#2 Low-Self-Esteem

This goes with #1. Having low self-esteem is another form of insecurities. This is definitely something that should just be eradicated in the new year. You can NOT and I repeat NOT get anywhere in life with this character trait. Low self-esteem has a poor reflection in your relationships whether it be with friends or dating. You will always be looking over your shoulder and wondering if you are good enough for anything or anybody . It’s just one of the ways you’ll stress yourself out and ultimately wind up going no where.

#3 Toxic People

Don’t feel bad for getting rid of people that are not serving a purpose in your life anymore. Toxic people can be anywhere from family, friends, lovers to co-workers. If you have people that are constantly bringing you down or just being negative in any shape or form. Then you must leave these people behind. Don’t let people hold you down away from your purpose in life. YOU only have one life to live. So LIVE It!

#4 Procrastination

The number 1 killer of goals and dreams is contentiously and consistently putting things off. Why put off  until tomorrow what you can do today? If you’ve always wanted to do something in life, you have to plan, research and execute. What might be frightening at first will probably be the best decision you’d ever do in your life; if you want to ever succeed in life. But you will never know if you are too afraid of at least trying. Don’t let years go by and you wake up to realize your life has gone by without you ever accomplishing anything.

#5 Addictions

This is the strongest pill to swallow for some?!? There are so many ways addictions can bury you, such as sex, drugs, alcohol or anything that has a tight hold on you. These things haunt you so bad it leads to depression and in some cases suicide.


These top five things are resolution and goal killers.  You should want to steer clear of these things in all of your future endeavors. I want you to live your best life in 2016. Get your plans in order, make a vision board for all the things you want to get done. Remember, the only way for your dreams to come true is for you to work your ass off to get it done. But you can’t do anything if you’re still settling in these five goal killers.


happy new year

Setting Your Goals for the New Year


By Jessica Daniel

Another year is about to end as we say goodbye to 2014 and welcome in 2015.

A new year ushers in a new you, right? As you create your list of new year goals, take the time to really think about what goals you would like to set for yourself, short term or long term, and stay committed to those goals. Ever wanted to open up a restaurant, for example, write a book, or start your own business, but you felt as if those goals that you had were just impossible for you to follow through with, that they were unrealistic? This new year, I want to encourage you as you write down your goals to pray and give them over to God, and trust that in this new season of your life He will make a way for you to accomplish those goals through His will. Have faith and know that God makes the impossible possible. There is nothing too big or too small for Him.

So when you set your new year goals, stay committed and do not give up. Have a happy new year and may God’s blessings be upon you in 2015.
