Never Stop Learning; Stay Focused

“LEARN FROM YESTERDAY, LIVE FOR TODAY, HOPE FOR TOMORROW.” - ALBERT EINSTEIN

AS A TEACHER, I KNOW MY STUDENTS WILL SOMETIMES FORGET WHAT I SAY, BUT THEY WILL NEVER FORGET HOW I MAKE THEM FEEL.

“TEACHERS CAN CHANGE LIVES WITH JUST THE RIGHT MIX OF CHALK AND CHALLENGES.” - Joyce Meyer

YOU CAN TALK AND TALK UNTIL YOU TURN BLUE IN THE FACE, BUT IF WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT DOESN’T CHANGE YOU OR SOMEONE AROUND YOU, YOUR TALK IS CHEAP AND INEFFECTIVE, SO THERE’S NOTHING TO LEARN FROM IT. WHEN YOU SPEAK, CONSIDER OTHERS FEELINGS. BE SENSITIVE TO WHAT THEY MAY BE EXPRESSING AND HOW YOU CAN HELP GUIDE THE CONVERSATION TOWARD GOOD SUCCESS. LEARN AND SHARE HOW YOU CAN TURN LEMONS INTO LEMONADE. LIVE EACH DAY AS IF IT’S YOUR LAST DAY ON EARTH AND SHARE WHAT MOTIVATES YOU WITH OTHERS.

FOR WHATSOEVER THINGS WERE WRITTEN AFORETIME WERE WRITTEN FOR LEARNING, THAT WE THROUGH PATIENCE AND COMFORT OF THE SCRIPTURES MIGHT HAVE HOPE. - ROMANS 15:4

REMEMBER, IF YOU CAN’T STEER OR GIVE SOMEONE PROPER GUIDANCE WITH YOUR TEACHING OF LIFE LESSONS OR EXPERIENCES YOU CAN SUGGEST THEY TALK TO A TRUSTED (PROFESSIONAL) CONFIDANT TO HELP SOLVE OR FIGURE OUT WHAT DIRECTION THEY SHOULD TAKE TO GET THE BEST RESULTS FOR THEIR SITUATION OR CIRCUMSTANCE.

WE MUST ALWAYS BE WILLING TO DO THE WORK. THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING WE CAN LEARN IF WE KEEP AN OPEN MIND AND STAY TEACHABLE. SELF-GROWTH WILL HELP YOU TO LIVE A FULL LIFE AND LEAD YOU TO MANY SUCCESSES ON YOUR JOURNEY OF LIFE. YESTERDAY IS GONE. TOMORROW  WE CAN LOOK AHEAD TO OUR FUTURE. TODAY IS A GIFT FROM GOD. WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE GIFT OF LIFE CHERISH IT.

LET’S GET FOCUSED!

Making Choices

Live your life by choice, not by chance;

Make changes in your life, not excuses;

Get motivated by life, not manipulated in life

Be useful to others, don’t be used by others;

Never back down from the choice of life and its ups and downs.

Listen to your inner voice telling you things like: “Keep Going!” “You Can Do It!” “You’ve Got This!” Never stop striving for excellence and never let the negative opinions of others get you off track.

Choices: we all must make them; there’s no way to get around them, but you don’t have to do it alone.

Remember it’s your CHOICE! Small Talk counts…

SAYING YES

 

Growing up, I recall both my mother and grandmother always reminding me of my strength, intelligence, and power...not just as a woman but as a human being. These affirmations are notions that I carried and reminded myself of throughout my entire life. They were particularly useful during some of my most difficult transitions and life challenges: starting college three states away from home, completing both of my graduate programs, and deciding to become an entrepreneur. In all of those moments, I remembered their words and their urging of me to always put myself in a position to be able to say “Yes” to whatever life had placed in front of me. This confidence in myself made me brave, zealous, and passionate about finding what my purpose was in life and determining the impact that I wanted to make. I consistently feel unstoppable.

 

In life, there will be challenges, heartbreaks, and letdowns. However, what matters most is how you respond to them. Consider your ability to say “Yes” in your daily life, even when it feels difficult or you feel afraid. Being open to “Yes” frees your thoughts and emotions to experience the joys of life in an unimaginable way. The next time you’re faced with a tough decision, uncertainty about your career path, or hesitancy about trying something new, consider your strength and significance to the world around you and just  say “Yes!”

 

Until Next Time,
