The Disconnected Message

Design your own destiny through deliberate action.

Too often, we may believe there is a road we are supposed to travel in life, to find later we were wrong.  Has that ever happened to you?  You knew in your heart that you were supposed to do something or even felt compelled to do something.  All to find later, it was the wrong move, it was the wrong choice.   What in the world happened?  I believe there is a message planted in each one of us.  Some may call it a calling, destiny, in any event, somehow we may have ignored it or believed at the time it was not right because it appeared to be impossible.

The Planted Seed

The seed that was planted and left in us to germinate somehow was disconnected from our belief system.  The noise of disbelief snuffed out the message that God wanted us to hear.  Therefore, we were left up to our own devices to press forward in the belief that the path we were on was correct.  How far from the truth could we be? Sometimes we may want a thing so badly that we believe it is the right path or right thing to do.   Have you ever heard someone say – “I can’t get a break?”  It is like everything they do is not working for them whatsoever.

Understanding The Right Move

How can we turn it around?  How can we have that life-transforming moment that affirms we are on the right path.  The path that we were originally intended to be on ordained by God? I believe if what you are doing is not working, change your plan of approach.  Have you ever tried on a pair of gloves before?  If so, you may have tried on several pairs before you found the pair of gloves that fit just right.  How did you know?  They felt good, it felt right, and as you moved your fingers while inside the glove, it complemented your movements.  You have to try several approaches until it starts to work or until it feels right.  When you decide apprehensively because it may not feel right, you choose to go against your gut feeling.  That may be a sign it will not work.

Whenever I go against the grain, so to speak, about anything I have tried, it never works.  However, if you never try and decide to stay on the sideline, you have just failed.   What comes naturally to you is a good hint it may be that something you should explore?  Do you find it easy to talk with others?  Do you find it easy to understand technical journals where others don’t have a clue?  Does it come naturally to figure out how things work?  You have to investigate yourself to find what comes naturally and test ideas to connect the source of inspiration to make things happen in your favor.

If you don’t have anything that comes naturally, that is ok too.   All that means is you have to investigate and try different things out until you find something that clicks for you.  One way to do this is to pick up different magazines or surf the web for new activities you have never tried before.

The number one idea to help you find the seed you were born with is reading a great deal.   It may not sound like fun, but anything worthwhile having requires work.  Just think of all the benefits that come with searching through reading.

The Benefits Of Reading

  1. You will build your vocabulary and comprehension.
  2. Your conversations with other people will be more engaging.
  3. By reading, you will acquire new ideas and inspiration.
  4. Reading is a great way to relax before going asleep.
  5.  When reading books, you will be to explore the possibilities of what could be possible for you.

As humans, we were all given a measure of attributes that render us unique.  For some people, it is apparent, and for others, it is a mystery to be explored and solved.  Do you want to find out what is at the core of your self-being?  Connect with yourself on a deeper level and find what it is you stand for.  Question your values, desires, point of view, and your everyday thoughts.  Challenge yourself to no longer accept the status quo of your everyday life.  Instead, be inspired by the possibilities of what life has to offer and connect with that positive message.  After you find your answer, take MASSIVE ACTION!

Simplify Your Health Care with allyhealth

With the health care cost increasing at an alarming rate in the country. So many people are looking for ways to cut costs where they can. Due to the high cost of health care, many Americans have elected to go without health care, and when a family member gets sick, they have to visit emergency rooms or urgent care facilities.

Some people are visiting urgent care facilities even for the common cold when it’s persistent, including emergency rooms at hospitals. Not to mention the wait times are almost ridiculous.

What if there was a better way? A more affordable way to receive the care you need and not have to pay the enormous rates they charge. Did you know the average rates for urgent care are around $150.00 to $200.00? You want for a long time to see a doctor only to be seen for five minutes by a doctor to prescribe medication that you have to pick up at the pharmacy.

Again, I ask, what if there was a better way? Well, there is, and it’s called AllyHealth.

My Weight Loss Struggle is real

Losing weight has been a ten-year battle for me because I won’t get out of my own way. Why? Well, there are so many reasons and one of them is cycle. The regiment of going real hard and when something in life hits me hard, my entire system gives in to it. But I am no stranger to hard work. In fact, I enjoy working out when I have the time to do so. There was a time when all I wanted to do was workout and feel the rush and great feeling you get once you’re done in the gym, or going for a run. If you workout or jog, you know what I am talking about.

I believe when things tend to go wrong in your life you generally find ways to cope and if I have to be honest, some of the way we choose to cope are not good. So where do I go from here?

Steps I am Going To Take To Get back on track

The first step is acknowledgement. knowing that I am off-beat and it is time to assess where I am and what I need to do to get back on track.

Quick Note; it’s also time to recognize why this happens and take steps from happening again thereby breaking the cycle.

Know that my life, not just my workouts are not in alignement with who I truly am, is critical to understand in order to bring about the necessary change. This stage is important because it is the foundation for which I need to build upon. Knowing the who, what, when, why, and how is predicated also on my belief system. See, there are so many of us who wonder why something happens in our lives oblivious to the mere fact we create some of our own issues.

Case in Point: I created myself being over-weight by not caring about what I ate and how it will effect my health years later. Outside of genetics, being over-weight is a mindset I believe can be changed if your find out what the real issue is that causes you to eat and be over weight.

I cannot speak for anyone but myself. This is my own experience. But there are some nuggets in the text. I also don’t believe I am the only one who struggles with being over-weight.

The second step after I gathered all my documentation of the who, what, when, how, and why. The next step is probably the biggest one of all, because without the second step all your hard work in the first step would have been for nothing. In fact, these steps work in tandom one without the other will not amount to results. By now I am thinking you already know what the second step is, and that is ACTION!!!

I must be willing to put in the work it takes to make the journey of change I so desperately want and need. Action is putting what I learned about myself and making the changes which will allow me to gravitate to the my future self I see. Making the physical change is simple. Transforming the way I think and how I see myself is critical, easily said than perform. This takes time to achieve and constant evaluations, assessments, monitoring of my thoughts, and actions.

The old adage is true; don’t worry about what others are saying to you. But worry about what you say to yourself when others stop talking. The conversation in your head is the most powerful consultation one can have and will be a force to reckon with. A force for good, or a force that can be damming.

I express some of my thoughts and opinions in the text above. My hope is that it has invoke someone to think about something in their own lives and what could they possibly change for the better.

I remember the picture below. Man, you talking about doing regular task was difficult. Thank goodness I am not there any longer. However, I have reached that point months ago and had to lose is again. Like I said earlier, what a bad cycle.

I weighed in at 305lbs in this picture.
This picture I am at 258lbs. I have 58lbs to lose to reach my goal of 200lbs.

In an effort to becoming a all around marketer and better blogger. I decide to learn some new skills to propel my journey further than ever before. Coursera learning platform has given me hope to know that I too can gain the quality skills to become better at what I do, and that is telling a story that needs to be told through marketing.

In my previous blog post I mentioned I wanted to learn something new and what better skill to learn in my line of work than marketing. I have to admit, marketing is like my nemeses. I could not grasp the process and my old ways of thinking was not working. That is why I decided to update my skills and learn new methods of making things happen the right way.

What others find easy, I found so difficult to understand let alone do. However, now, I see there is a process and once you start learning the process it provides clarity on how to proceed, how to market, the who, what, when, why, and how. In my last blog post I posted a picture of my first certificate and today I am happy to post the completion of my second course of 7 of the Google Digital Marketing & E-commerce Professional Certificate.

Google Digital Marketing & E-commerce course.
This is my first completed Google Marketing certificate.

I know I have a long road to fully acquiring a world renown marketing skills. But you don’t become great over night. You have to first learn the basics and foundation from which to build upon.

Google Attract and Engage Customers with digital marketing.
This is the second Google Marketing certificate I captured.

I Decided To Learn Something New

Yes! I wanted to learn some new skills that I can put into action with what I am already doing. I decided I wanted to become better at blogging, better at marketing and better at writing. So, since I have an online store at selling hoodies I create. I thought it would be great to learn digital marketing.

There are more businesses entering into the online space than ever before. Marketing in my opinion is an invaluable skill to have. More importantly, it can really help me understand how to reach a broader audience and learn about different markets. Another benefit associated with learning digital marketing will be to help others along the way as well.

I will keep you updated on my journey with learning digital marketing as it progresses. I just finish the first of seven courses and look forward to finishing the entire program. But for now I will take the win for starting and finishing the first course, learning the foundation.

I was always an avid reader and love learning new things. However, sometimes I will read and not apply it in real life scenarios, depending on what it is. Lately though, I have a knack for learning and applying the newly gained knowledge immediately. This I have learn is fare more exciting then just reading about something. I am on my way to becoming a better marketer. This is a new testament to my blog name motivated to be fit, mind, body, and spirit.

The Power of Vision

Where will you be in the future?

I once read; “The greatest gift ever given to mankind is not the gift of sight but the gift of vision.” The ability to see and believe what others cannot.

The bible says; “now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1.

Have you ever seen an artist start to paint or draw? In the beginning you can’t tell where there going with their design. However, you are amazed at the end result once they have finished. It’s funny because you had no clue what they were drawing or how it was going to turn out until the middle or the finished product. The artist envisioned their end result and have already seen what they wanted you to see once they have finished.

The importance of asking yourself questions that invoke thought

That is the same with our life. Where are you going? Where do you see yourself in the next five, ten, or twenty years from now? What vision for your life do you have? Think about the questions presented here. It’s nothing new you haven’t heard before. However, I want you to think about it now to see if your vision aligns with your reality.

There are scores of individuals throughout the world who cannot answer these questions with conviction or any certainty. However, on the other hand, you have thousands of people who dare to answer these questions with empty hope. Their answers are not predicated on the foundation filled with true vision, belief, dedication, backed by persistent action to achieve the very goal they set out to accomplish. Then you have a small percentage of individuals who defy all odds and what they say comes to pass and more.

Ancient writings say; “where there is no vision the people perish.” That is a powerful statement that shares relevance in everyone lives. We all should ponder, to think, even meditate daily about what we want out of life. Revisit our goals and aspirations weekly to make sure our actions align with our vision.

How far can vision take you?

Vision allows you to see with your heart and mind what you cannot see with your eyes. True vision enables you to step through the doorway of time into the future and view what your belief, dedication, persistence, hard work, conviction will produce if you do not falter.

I will leave you with this question; What is your full potential? Let me answer it for you; UNLIMITED!!!

I am inspired to bring content that will impact one’s life in a way to make a quality change in their life, or improve it in some fashion or way. If I have helped one person I know we both have been blessed.

Jesus once said; “feed my sheep.”

I hope I have done that here today. By inspiring someone to take a look at their own life with a new vision that will effect a positive change that will not only benefit themselves, but all that come in contact with them.

Short Term Disability

Did you know Short-Term Disability covers conditions like; Arthritis
Heart Disease, Diabetes, and even pregnancy?  Short-Term Disability is great if your company only offers long-term disability. Meaning if you got injured or sick you would have to wait six months before your long-term policy kick in.


As an Aflac Benefit Consultant I can’t stress enough how important it is to take a look at supplemental insurance policies that can enhance what you already receive from your employer. Short-Term Disability can only be acquire through your employer. If your company don’t offer Aflac maybe it’s time to insist they do.

If you would like to learn more about Aflac and all they have to offer you can do that at their website at:

If you would like to learn about the individual products for yourself and live in the state of Texas I would be more than happy to have a conversation with you.

Motivated to be fit is about taken care of the body, mind, spirit, and soul. However, should always be prepare to take care of the body in other areas.

I love free

Do you love getting quality things or services for free? I know I do. I enjoy it when I am an excellent frequent patron of an establishment, and the manager or owner says it’s on the house. Here’s the deal: I am a regular regardless of what the manager or owner thinks; I just love what they have or really enjoy, the service, and sometimes the atmosphere.

So, the manager or owner recognizes me as a frequent patron with good cheers and a smile. So, in reality, they don’t have to do anything, and I will still be there spending my hard-earned money in exchange for the gratification I get from great products and or services.

When you sweetened the deal with “Free!” I am all in, and they have just made my day. What about you? I am one of those people who believe that a good fortune is a circular event. What goes around comes around.

I not only enjoy receiving free things. I am over the hill with joy from giving more than receiving. That gratification I receive from providing a helping hand, my time and knowledge money cannot buy.

What do you like or would like to receive for free? Be honest. I want to know. Nothing is more satisfying than a free quality course in something I am interested in learning. I enjoy tech gadgets and how-to information the most.

If you had it your way, what is the one thing you would love to learn? Let’s get off-topic and digress a little. If money was not an object, what is the one thing you would love to know or learn? I find that question a little ambiguous. Nevertheless, I asked that question, and I am interested in someone to answer it because I find it challenging to do so.

free free free

Back to the topic at hand. Free!!! We establish it’s great receiving something for free. I would like to know from you, my reader. Have you given anything away lately? If so, what? Was it your time? Money? Who doesn’t like to receive money? However, keep in mind you can give away something as simple as a compliment or smile. What about your undivided attention by being there in the moment to someone who just wants you to listen.

Jump Start The Morning

How do you start your morning? Better yet, what is your morning ritual? Is it with prayer? With a shower, workout, or a quiet morning of meditation? What you do in the morning is the foundation for your day. So wouldn’t it make sense to ground yourself with the very activity that will help provide you with the ability to make clear conscience and ethical decisions?

Doing a quick twenty-minute workout can provide you with the energy needed to navigate the high altitude of the day. However, meditation for fifteen minutes can bring you peace and tranquility to help provide calm in your day filled with turbulence and pressure.

You can help navigate the day you will have a provide the pre-activities to help prepare for what lies ahead. If you are privy to the day you might have, do the thing that will help lay the proper foundation for handling the type of day you anticipate having.
