#Motivated Monday .@IyanlaVanzant

motivated mondayHappy Monday!

I would like to share with you all a brief story (paraphrased) I heard Ms. Iyanla Vanzant tell:

She spoke of how her and her grandson went to get an eye exam. The doctor asked Ms. Vanzant where her glasses were. Ms. Vanzant said ,” I have perfect vision; I am only getting the exam because it was a two for one deal and my grandson wears glasses”. The doctor proceeded to tell her that she may not have known she needed glasses because “your eyes will adjust to the level of deficiency in their focus”.

What a powerful metaphor we can all apply to our lives. How many of us have adjusted our goals to the deficiency of our current focus? Only aspiring to be what WE THINK is possible because we have trained ourselves to not see that ANYTHING is within our grasps.

I felt a real connection with this message because I have sat at the front of EVERY class all through grade school because I could not see the board in any other seat in the classroom. It wasn’t until I got to college that I purchased glasses, and talk about CLARITY! How many years will we as women, or we as people, or we as parents or whatever you define yourself by; allow yourself to live without real clarity. To have the opportunity to sit in any seat you want but see your vision board clearer than you would sitting in the front; out of the action.

I hope this resonates with a few of you. Never accept all you see to be all there is to be seen.

Happy Monday

Today’s Little Burst of Motivation is:


If being afraid to fail is what is stopping you from going out on a limb and reaching your full potential, toss that caution to the wind. Once you actually acheive your goals that will be the main focus, not how many times you did not do what you set out to do. That goes for careers, weight loss, quitting smoking, anything in life. Keep trying, screw what the naysayers are talking about, they do not know your fate or your potential.

I believe in you, now YOU need to believe in you.

motivated mondayAs always I am here to turn your Crappy Monday into a HAPPY MONDAY.

Or at least leave you with a few words to keep you thinking.

For today:

The Dalai Lama once said;

“Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck”

Keep that in mind as you go throughout your day, because sometimes what you want is not what you need RIGHT THEN!

Good Luck Everybody

motivated mondayHappy Monday Everyone! For some of you today is a day off, so enjoy it and relax. For those of you getting up and out for work, school, or whatever go at it with a positive attitude NO MATTER WHAT! Sending positivity will bring you positivity.


Since today is #PresidentsDay I have a bit of inspiration from our President, Barack Obama.

Barack Obama

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”
