It’s Warrior Wednesday and Nothing Should Stand in Your Way

“Tomorrow we should look back at today as the inspiration…”

medHave you ever wondered if you are getting the most out of your life? I think we all have—but what we have to remember is that today we build our tomorrow. Some people wish that changes could take place. Some people wish so hard—but they fail to put the work in. Today, we should be working to make our tomorrow great. The first step in changing our lives is making the decision to do so—but these decisions are sometimes hard to make.

Knowing that the decision to change your life may be the most important decision you will ever make can make it harder to make a choice. As all of your inner demons come out to skew the way you feel and the way you make choices, it’s important to keep a level head, a clear mind and a strong understanding of what YOU need.

I decided to put together four techniques I have used to help myself make decisions. There is no perfect decision making process, but these techniques will help you make a clear and concise decision.

Try to get a second opinion

Going with your “gut” instinct often means that your decisions are highly swayed by emotion, which may not lead to you doing the right thing. To better see the bigger picture, try to get a second opinion on what you should do from someone you trust and who does not have a vested interest in the outcome.

Gather and study all of the available information

Many of us go with what “feels right” when making decisions; however, the outcome of important decisions should not depend solely on how you are feeling at that exact moment in time, as feelings can change quite dramatically from one day to the next. Before consulting your gut feeling, try to take into account all the important facts and assess the implications of each outcome. Consider what the risks are with each outcome, who it will affect and whether it is feasible.

Be sure to set yourself a deadline

While weighing up all of your options is an important part of the decision-making process, spending too much time seeking out possible solutions and trying to pinpoint the “right” one can actually make the process more difficult and stressful than it needs to be. While a certain period of time should be allotted for considering your options, it can help to set a deadline for making your decision and stick to it. Decide what would be a realistic amount of time for making your decision and write down the date somewhere for your reference.

Sit down and make a pros and cons list

It’s the age-old technique for making decisions, but writing down a list of the pros and cons of each of your options is also one of the most effective ways to make a sensible and well thought out decision. Write down all your options, then dedicate a separate sheet of paper to each. Draw a line down the center of each sheet and write a list of all the pros (or benefits) of the option down one side of the division, and all the cons, or disadvantages, down the other.

Rather than counting up the number of pros and cons for each option, it is important to “weight” each point according to how significant it is. You can grade each point on a scale of one to five, for example, in terms of importance.

It’s Warrior Wednesday: If Only He Came Soon….


Have you ever felt frustrated, overwhelmed, and in disarray about a situation in your life…. where you wished and thought, if only God had intervened soon enough, your loved one would not have died? If Only God had intervened soon enough, the business or dream you were trying to make happen would not have collapsed? If Only, He had come soon enough, things would not have turned out the way it did.

            “Lord if only…Lord if only… Lord if Only!”

Many are afraid to admit this but there have been times in my life where I just didn’t understand the initial outcome of a promise I knew God had deposited into my life, or why I put so much work into something or someone and it turns sour when I was sure it was God who’d asked me to do that or forge that relationship.

Join me in exploring some scriptural verses today to help ease our minds:
John 11:39 New International Version(NIV) John 11: 1-45

39 “Take away the stone,” he said.
“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”

Imagine a loved one gravely ill; your family members prayed and fasted and at the end of the day, that loved one dies… How do you reconcile with this?

Now imagine, a dream you had nursed for long, you have pumped all that you had in it, prayerfully considering your path, pushing forward because you really believed you were made to solve that problem through your innovative idea. At the end of the day, things did not happen the way you envisioned.

Imagine a relationship you were truly dedicated to building, knowing that this person is who you will live the rest of your life with; or go into business with, or perhaps you were meant to mentor, but then it all ended in painful breakups.

The Story of Lazarus:
The story in John 11 is that of Lazarus. He fell gravely ill and his family did all they could to get Jesus attention to visit. When he finally got to the town, he was met with mourners in sack clothes … there was much wailing and turmoil. Many probably did not understand what Jesus was doing as he walked among them examining their countenance. I can imagine all of the murmuring and some saying, what is Jesus doing here? Didn’t He realize that the man – Lazarus is now dead? Some even said it to his face, don’t you see or know that Lazarus has been dead for 4 days? When we needed you to come, you did not show up? What could you possible do now that his body is decaying?

Jesus Response to the People’s Behavior:
How could they have doubted the father? How could they have doubted that he did not hear them? How could they have doubted that He knew exactly what had happened and that he was still the same person who’d performed much miracles before Lazarus death?

But that God many be glorified and that he (Jesus) fulfills his promise…he called out to Lazarus.. and commanded him to come forth from underneath the grave. Immediately, the stones covering the mouth of the tomb were pushed back and Lazarus came out.

While we may not understand why it takes Forever for God to answer our prayers, He has heard us the very first time we made our request. Often the answers are waiting for us to fully align with God’s words, be ready to receive it, having the right attitude to sustain the answer.

Wisdom Nugget for Today:
Take the limits off GOD! Take the limits off His Power. He is God who answers ALL prayers and because He sees the future more than we do, HE ANSWERS THE WAY HE KNOWS IT WILL EVENTUALLY BENEFIT US.

In the case of Lazarus, Jesus was not 4 days late but HE WAS RIGHT ON TIME. Likewise, whatever the dream is that seems dead right now, if you take the limits off God, HE will breathe life into it and cause it to prosper at the right time. Our time is never His time. He owns the past, the present and the future and because He knows your DNA, He will never allow any vision, dreams, or goals to crush you ..which can happen if fulfilled sooner.

Today, choose to take the limit off God.Move into the realm of possibilities, trusting that he knows the right time to release that which you have asked. Continue to abide in the will of the father for your life, crushing every fear, every doubts, every past pains from failure with the understanding that today’s FAILURE is a platform for TOMORROW’S GREATNESS.

Recently, one of my southern warrior sister-tribe, sister, Dawn D. Totty who is an award winning designer/stager was on her way to yet another interesting assignment. She loves the path to the family’s house that she took the picture to share just the serenity surrounding her as she drive towards the house.

I was instantly captivated by the picture and immediately asked if I had permission to use it. That same day, another southern warrior sister-tribe sister, Marlas Triplett-Sells, “Our Teacher-Preacher sister” and her husband Robert Sells were on their way to Indiana for July 4th (independence day) celebration here in the United States. Well, she too sent me a picture. This time it was a picture of them pushing through the storms to get to their destination.

It’s Warrior Wednesday: Warriors Learn How to Steer their Vision without FEAR

Many walk around in circles; never fully grasping what they need to do to steer their vision. Many are frustrated and about ready to quit on their dreams because age is quickly riding up on them and it just seem like the dream is getting farther eluding them.

ARE YOU TIRED? Are you depressed? Are you confused? Are you overwhelmed and can’t see to find your way out of the unending circle of challenges?
Here are steps you can begin taking today that can /will impact your outcome ultimately:

(1). Believe that you can make it ~ For me, the Word of God has been a great resource where this is concerned.
(2) Understand that there is a season for the breakthrough you are seeking, so discern the season and stay in it.
(3). Do not spend your energy attempting to operate in someone elses’ lane and season. BELIEVE WHEN I SAY THIS, COPY-CATS EVENTUALLY SELF DESTRUCT!
(4). Focus! Focus! Focus!
(5). Write the vision down and make it plain.
(6). Take massive action towards it: One step at a time, you will conquer the mountain.
(7). Be vigilant to align with those who are assigned to you for this season, to uplift, up guard, mentor, guide you t the path you are treading.

Above all, BE READY!

It’s Warrior Wednesday: Buyers! Beware! There is a Copycat in town! Can the counterfeit be YOU?” Don’t be a Fraud! Check yourself before somebody calls you out!

Be it in life or in business, we must attain excellence. We each have been created for a unique purpose. It is therefore our duty to spend time discovering that purpose rather than spend time walking in someone else’ lane!

Inspirational Thought for Today: It’s Warrior Wednesday with the Southern Warrior Sister-Tribe

Many fail to appreciate or honor the connection God places in their lives. They often disregard other peoples’ opinions and do not understand that true friendship or mentorship tell the truth at all cost, even when the truth is hard to swallow. Some are in desperate need of a life makeover right now because they have chosen their own course with no direction from anyone. When their thought processes are challenged, they go cold, stand aloof, and become passive aggressive.

The Message:
When we allow ourselves to be led right and be instructed (maturely taking the good, the bad, and the ugly), most of the dead-end journeys we find ourselves in, can and will be avoided.

Respect those whom God has place in your life! This is an heavenly secret to pushing through life challenges and into your destination. When you honor others, you will be honored too! When you celebrate others, you will be celebrated too. No one owes us anything in life! But we owe ourselves the chance to lead an authentic life, move beyond pain & sorrow, and grow even when chastised.”Beyond Idol Worship (Amazon)

It’s Warrior Wednesday: The Road to Success Requires Some “Housecleaning.”

Warrior Wednesday: The Road to Success Requires Some “Housecleaning.”
housecleaning is never easy
I woke up this morning thinking about the word “housecleaning”. What does it entail and what does it have to do with living and walking in the fullness of our destiny?

Housecleaning – The removal of unwanted or superfluous items, practices, conditions, or personnel. Another definition which I found to be interesting is this: the act of improving or reforming by weeding out excess or corrupt personnel or of revising methods of operation (
Housecleaning means cleaning toxic things and people out of your life
“Housecleaning will often mean you being ready to clean out the
toxic habits, people in your life. Are you ready?”
~ Dr. Princess Fumi Hancock

I welcome you to the rest of your life where everything visible and invisible is possible! In literal terms, house cleaning is not usually a fun event. If you are like me, there have been times when you just don’t feel like dealing with cleaning your house; unless of course if you have a compulsive disorder which compels you to constantly clean your environment. At any rate, it is crucial that we take a look at who we are, what we have accomplished thus far, mistakes made in the past but most importantly, what do we perceive as our pay off when we steer our lives in the wrong direction? In life, we are usually driven by two emotions, pain or pleasure.
