5 ways to have a better attitude...NOW!

5 ways to have a better attitude...NOW!



Hello friend. Let me start by saying, we all won't have a 100% positive attitude 100% of the time. That's  okay though, we're ALL overcoming to become. In this article, I'm speaking to myself as much as I am to you. Thing is, we all know having a positive attitude can and will change our lives. If we all know it, why aren't we all doing it? 

Simple answer? Because it's extremely difficult.  

I won't argue with you there. With that said, I began looking for some small tweaks that could get us on the path to a better attitude, and ultimately a better life. I'd like to share them with you. 

1. Start your day by reading something positive

Every success coach, business coach, life coach, or any coach that cares about you will tell you to start your day by reading something positive. This isn't a bunch of bull, it works. Ever hear of "Garbage in, Garbage out?" This works in your mind as well. Feeding it positive will start your day in a positive mode, and it's likely to continue. You don't have to read 3 hours each morning, start with something small. Even if it's just one chapter, one devotion, one Proverb. Remember, everything big was once small.

2.Listen to more music

Ever get an instant feeling of euphoria when your favorite song comes on? Make that song come on more often. Play it whenever you're down. Play it when you're happy. Play it when you don't know what else to do! Just keep playing it! 


3.Have something you like..

In these days and times, it seems like everyone is on some type restriction. Whether it's delaying gratification or simply a diet, it's okay to have a little of something you like. Do whatever you have to do to keep your mind state positive. If a certain type of candy makes you happy, have a piece. If travelling makes you happy, take a weekend. Enjoy the journey..


4.Set Goals

It's been said "true happiness can only be achieved when accomplishing a goal." We all like to win. You're winning when you're on course towards your personal goals. Imagine how good it's going to feel when you get there? Guess what? The milestones feel good on the way too! There's nothing like knowing you're a little closer to your dreams. Basketball games wouldn't be very entertaining without goals, neither will your life. Put yours up. 


5. Reward your accomplishments

If you set a goal and accomplish it, enjoy yourself.....for the day! Then move on..

However, while you're enjoying yourself, REWARD YOURSELF! You deserve it! There's nothing wrong with a little reward! Dangle the carrot in front of your own face if you have to! If you don't treat you great, who will? 

I hope this helps. We'll get better. Let's get to work..

Decade end....

Quick question... Have you reviewed your decade yet? I'm in the process of taking some time at the end of this year not only to look at the past year, but to review the past 10 years as the decade comes to a close. Isn't it amazing how far you've come since 2010 :) Where were you in your business in 2010? Where are you now? What did you start? What did you end? What investments did you make? What skill sets did you learn? What did you miss out on? I believe everything happens and unfolds in the way it should... I challenge you to do a personal and business audit. Decide what you want to keep...Decide what you want to discard. Decide what you want to do more of. Decide what you want to do less of.  Let's make your next move your best move and the rest of your life the best of your life....and make the beginning of this new decade one to remember!

Racism and Police Brutality

I know a lot of people have racism and police brutality on their minds now more than ever. Some are complaining about it and some are  actively thinking about how to fight it. Maybe you are as well. I hope you are. All it takes for Evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.. Have you considered how to make the Black community more powerful, so we can have a stronger voice in society? Have you thought of getting into financial shape, so you have a business or generational wealth to pass on to your children? What about the Black dollar? Have you thought about ways to keep the TRILLIONS of dollars we spend every year circulating within the Black community? These are the questions I’ve been thinking about for years and here’s how I’m putting in the work to make big things happen for our communities... I teach people how to create the kind of economy that has real power in America. Because the truth is… The only color they REALLY care about is GREEN  Money can give you access, power, an

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game?  Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life? Are you close to it?  You can’t change the past.  Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck?  Was it worth it? Are you getting what you set out for? It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to  think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures! People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never cr
