Do you REALLY believe?

Forgive me.

This blog may be a bit offensive and slightly insensitive. If you decide to be offended please read the ENTIRE blog before you fully decide to do so. 

If it doesn't apply, let it fly. 

In life I've found that everything really does happen for a reason. There are no good experiences and no bad experiences, just learning experiences. It's been said "You win or you learn" but I believe you learn from all of them. Success and failure can both be great teachers.  
There have been times when I had my world turned upside down, when friends and family betrayed me, when I made HUGE mistakes, when ends weren't meeting, when my health failed, when drama surrounded me, when I felt like I couldn't breathe, when I felt like I couldn't think ... but as I look back on those experiences, I realize they were all necessary for me to become who and what I am today. 

You may think that sounds like a lot, and it certainly was.... but by grace, we have overcome these challenges. Notice the two key words in that sentence: 

Grace and we

I wasn't alone and neither are you. I had and still have God with me. When there was nobody or no where to turn, I turned to God. As his word says, when I drew near to him he drew near to me.Those experiences allowed me to be blessed with incredible testimonies. They've shown me how to become a better person. They've helped me to grow stronger so I could encourage others with similar challenges. Most importantly, they helped me grow my faith. My faith is and has always been my greatest weapon.  Even with limited spiritual knowledge, I stood on God's promises. I took God at his word and believed he wouldn't leave me and he hasn't! I understood that I wouldn't know why or how everything was going to happen, but I knew and know I will thrive! God is no respecter of persons, what he's done for others..he can do for you. 

This brings me to my point. As believers, we understand God gave us many gifts and promises, but do we REALLY believe it?  

Do we REALLY believe it? 

Everyone has a battle to fight, this I am certain. We aren't so different in this respect. Here's the thing, and I'm not judging, but shouldn't we be winning or know victory is on the way? I'm not saying you shouldn't get mad or sad, we all have our moments, but shouldn't we get back to business as usual? Especially knowing that victory is upon us? As believers, we aren't called to play small, be timid, or sissies scared of everything! 

Do we REALLY believe?

Do we believe enough to stand on the very things we claim to believe? Read that again. 

Do you really believe there's a God in control? Do you really believe God will never leave you? Do you really believe he has plans to prosper you and not harm you? Do you believe that we have the ability to create wealth? Do you believe he is with us? Do you believe everything works together for your good? 
Do you believe he will supply your needs? Do you believe no weapon formed against you will prosper?

Or is it just something that we all recite to show our "religion?" 

Is all this a ritual and or show? Or something we hold in our hearts with high esteem?

How can one be a believer if one doesn't believe? It's one thing to say what you believe in church, or to recite scripture, but its a whole different thing to stand on God's promises and speak to your challenges with the authority God gave us! I recognize we're all in different places in our walk and life, but should we respond like "the world?" I think you know the answer. Jesus wasn't a punk, and if you have the spirit, you aren't either! We know better, so we should do better. 

 As believers we know God and us, together, create a majority. 

So if you find yourself in what feels like a dark place, remember one thing... there is a plan for your life and things will get better if you believe and work. Pray like it depends on God and work like it depends on you! 

In conclusion, you can rest on these two things. 1)His grace is sufficient for us 2) God is with you...

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

I care about you and want you to be protected

 I care about you and want you to be protected I will not mince my words here. We live in unprecedented times. I take the mission of equal justice under law VERY seriously. Quite honestly, we all know I own and operate  but I do not do build this business for money.  While I do like the residual income it provides, I already have enough to take care of my bills. I don't say that to impress you, I say that to impress upon you that I'm more mission driven than commission driven.  I take this very seriously and hope you do as well. When I was in my early 20s, I had a black Cadillac...vogue rag pin FACTORY wheels...wooo that thing was clean.  I'm from the Eastend of Richmond. I always wanted a Cadillac. I've owned about 10...However I got pulled over and profiled once a week. It got so bad I ended up considering selling my car. I could not keep what I earned and deserved because cops decided to pull me over

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!
