5K Donation In 2019

This year looking for sponsors to help us donate 5K (Five Thousand dollars) to St. Jude when I participate in the 5K run this September.

We participated last year and had a blast, this year will only be better. We even have a team ready to run with us.

MONDAY AGAIN?

It’s Monday! For many it is the start of the work week. Let’s approach this week believing that something great is about to happen! What are today’s challenges saying to you, Impossible or I’m possible? The way we view a challenge can lead to us taking a limiting or encouraging approach. Science and technology would not have made the huge advances that it has if these ground-breaking individuals believed in impossibility. Impossible is only impossible until someone finds a way to make it possible. So instead of declaring that something is impossible let’s say that it is possible, I just need to find out how.

The initial battle for success takes place in the mind. Our mind set dictates how we think, feel and approach challenges. If you change the way you think about something, you can change the outcome. What seems like an impossible task can probably be achieved with the right resources. If you open your mind to all possibilities you will find a way to make it possible. When you limit your expectations, you immediately limit your results.

You have been called to touch the lives of others and whatever your plans and goals are, this is a huge undertaking. Whenever your task is looking impossible remember that with God, all things are possible! Fill your mind with thoughts of positivity, enthusiasm, and determination. God has not put limits on what you can achieve and neither should you.

You Need to Be real, Not Perfect

It is more important to be real with and about yourself, than to try to be perfect. The biggest revelation that any individual can have about themselves is that they are not perfect and that is perfectly alright. If you are on a path that leads you to your purpose, you will discover your greatness, but the path to being perfect is a never ending circle.

Being real is all about authenticity and self-awareness. Striving to better yourself is something we all should be doing, but trying to be something you’re not is a mistake. Too many people end up going along with the crowd in order to fit in or be accepted. Have you ever noticed that successful people are usually the ones who stand out from the crowd? Leaders and innovators are effective because they find a way to do what no-one else is doing and forge a way for themselves.

Your individuality is what is special about you. Your individuality is connected to your purpose. In business and in life, the best way to impress is to be you. Being yourself and doing and saying things that reflect who you are will lead to a greater sense of satisfaction.

Allow yourself to be who you were born to be and see your success reach new heights.

Leadership Skills

The ability to lead is one of the skills necessary for success. Leadership roles are a part of our everyday life, and are displayed in many areas outside of the workplace. You may have heard the phrase ‘a born leader’, but in fact many of the skills that contribute to great leadership can be learned and developed. You may not be a natural born leader but you can definitely grow to become one. Here are a few leadership qualities we can all work on improving:

Leaders inspire and motivate others. This is more than being enthusiastic or giving motivational talks. It is the ability to cause another to know that they matter, and that what they do counts to the point that they desire to do their best.

Leaders are honest and have integrity. People will gravitate to and be led or guided by people they trust. Leaders are transparent, are not afraid of the truth, and their actions back up what they say. As a leader you are a role model and set the tone of the community you lead by the behavior you display.

Leaders are good communicators. Leaders are able to communicate effectively and clearly and understand that communication is a two-way street.

Leaders have vision. A leader is able to look ahead to where the business is going. The vision keeps the leader inspired, organized, persistent even in tough times, and maintains focus.

Take the time to assess your leadership skills and work on developing them. The potential to be a great leader is within all of us.

The Benefits of a Mentor

Having a mentor is great for personal and professional development. A mentor will share knowledge, experience and expertise with others. It is also a biblical concept. Mentoring relationships are found all throughout the bible: Jethro and Moses, Elijah and Elisha, Eli and Samuel, Samuel and David just to name a few. And of course Jesus and the disciples.

In the workplace, mentoring benefits all parties involved.

The Mentee: There are numerous benefits that result from having a mentor. The mentee receives the opportunity to get sound advice, education and insight into their personal life, field of study or occupation. When faced with the problems and struggles you may encounter as an employee or entrepreneur, having a wise or more experienced person to help guide you through is always beneficial. Also, a professional relationship with a mentor will provide encouragement and assistance with the tough choices you may have to make.

The Mentor: The relationship between a mentor and the mentee provides mutual advantages. In the case of the mentor, they can gain confidence, increased job satisfaction and eventually a potentially expanded network and reputation. Confidence and job satisfaction can be gained because the interaction causes the mentor to take on a leadership role. Additionally, once the mentee “graduates”, from the mentorship a strong professional relationship is generally built and because of this the mentee will be an example of the positive impact of the mentor, thus, expanding their reputation and connections.

The Business: The business overall prospers from mentorship because they allow the company to focus on growth rather than training. Furthermore, the employees who are connected through various mentorships benefit from having stronger bonds and better communication, which leads to a more organized, creative and robust working environment. Even the owner themselves being mentored can increase profit and productivity.

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am so excited about all that God has in-store for you in 2016!

2016 has been declared our year of VICTORY and we are more than ready to have victory in every area of our lives.

One thing that I have been so excited about at VIBE Church (Victory in the Believers Experience) is that we have all successfully developed a healthy church culture which consistently lives out our motto “We are making a difference and we love it!”. The Lord has allowed our motto to become a reality for us in a huge way in a very short time. As we continue to make a difference, the opportunity has come for us to do it on a much larger scale.

It is my awesome privilege to announce that January 3, 2016 the VIBE Church will be merging into World Overcomers Christian Church -Raleigh Campus! We are more than excited about taking our Gifts, Talents and Treasures to make an even greater impact in the Kingdom with other like-minded believers.

My sincerest hopes are that you would join with us as we jump in at our NEW CHURCH HOME, World Overcomers Christian Church- Raleigh Campus. Lets continue making a difference while experiencing VICTORY in 2016!

Life Questions?? Part 3

man with question mark painted on a wall

Hey guys, I hope you have been enjoying my Life Questions series. Hopefully you have been challenged to ask yourself those important questions that at times can shake your soul.

I have another question for you, Who told you it was impossible? As a community leader I often times hear very sad stories of people who had a dream to be this or that, but was told as a young child you can’t do that. Or even they feel they are too young to accomplish that dream. No matter how you received the futuristic damning news, I just want you know – IT’S NOT ACCURATE!!!! It’s simply not the truth at all, well let me take that back. It IS accurate and true if you believe it is. Yes, you heard me correctly, you empower your own future by where you put the energy of your belief.

Yes so the question, Who told you it was impossible? You did. When people tell you things that are opposite from what you believe, and you receive it, then you are the one that told you it was impossible. We have to learn how to take responsible for our lives. Being that we can’t control what people say to us, we have to be diligent in controlling what we let in our lives.

I want to challenge you as we are crossing over to the next year, never let anyone determine  your wealth, health and future. When people say negative things to you, don’t let their words in. Set your future and harshly go after it.
