Around the summer 2018, I came to realize that many promotional opportunities I was applying for (and highly qualified for) weren’t being offered to me and were being freely handed to others. (That is another story for another day. Stay tuned)
Anyway, last year, I had become quite fed up and frustrated with my job. I was feeling stuck, over utilized, undervalued and underpaid to say the least.
(Side note: While I was feeling stuck, I was still praying asking for God to open doors and to show me the areas I needed to grow. I found there were things God needed me to discover right in the place where I was feeling stuck.) Have you ever just felt stuck and don’t know how explain it?
Sooooo, the process of SHIFTING MY MINDSET was necessary for my forward movement; the process was not overnight.
To help me get my mind right, I began investing time into my personal and professional development. What did that look like? That meant I began to read more books within my niche/career interests and began spending more time studying those individuals in my field who were already successful.
Although the stressors at work had not yet disappeared at that time and the toxicity still existed, I began to use my free time to draft a business and entrepreneurial roadmap including the objectives necessary to lead me to my destiny.
Soon after my mind began to SHIFT, I launched Destiny Inspired Consulting.
To give you a bit more background, my firstborn daughter, Tyra, wrote a fiction story for school and my character’s name in her story was DESTINY. Over many years, many people would contact me for guidance regarding their professional and/or educational endeavors. Finally, the consistent feedback I was getting is that I had been an inspiration to those individuals AND had INSPIRED them through my guidance or CONSULTING. Hence, the name of my career and social media consulting business launched September 2018 is DESTINY INSPIRED CONSULTING.
In hindsight, as it pertained to the place I was working at that time, I needed to experience that long season of toxic management and feeling stuck BECAUSE it put fire under me to pursue my dreams with RELENTLESS FAITH.
I thought it was important to share how Destiny Inspired Consulting was birthed into existence.
I recently shared the recorded podcast interview I did with TV Host/Producer Chundria Brownlow of The Chundria Show. The topic was Stepping Outside of Comfort Zones. Sharing about my business and a bit of my professional journey caused me to reflect on how far I had come and this is only the beginning.
When I post things about having to CREATE MY OWN OPPORTUNITIES, not just words, that is more like sharing my testimony to inspire and empower someone else.
If I can DO IT, so can YOU!!
Let me say that again for the people in the back. If I can do it, so can YOU!!
Having personally PUSHED beyond feeling stuck is why I’m so passionate about inspiring others to put action behind their dreams, take those dreams off the back burner. Do not hesitate to create your own opportunities when there aren’t any being offered to you.
Now that you know what INSPIRED me to launch Destiny Inspired Consulting, -which now has evolved into business consulting along with women’s empowerment events.
In closing, I ask you a few thought-provoking questions.
1) Are you feeling stuck in your personal or professional life?
2) Have you considered the need to SHIFT YOUR MINDSET or simply change your perspective on a situation that has you feeling stuck or hopeless?
Yesterday, I wrote about being motivated when you just ain’t feeling it. I wrote that remembering how I felt when I felt stuck in my career. Now, not only am I a business owner and consultant, my goal is to speak to people all over the world through platforms worldwide and through social media platforms to reach the masses.
Welp that’s all folks. I just felt like blabbing…oops I mean sharing the backstory of Destiny Inspired Consulting.
Have a lovely and INSPIRING evening.
