THE BREAKTHROUGH MOVIE

Last night, my family, church family and I went to see the movie premiere of THE BREAKTHROUGH! Wow and wow again. This POWERFUL movie had soooo many thought-provoking and lifechanging messages. The story was just WOW. I mean just WOW! There were many relatable moments and moments I just couldn’t imagine experiencing.

I’m struggling to write this because I don’t want to share many details like some other reviews I saw. So NO spoilers here but just WOW. BREAKTHROUGH is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost.

Let me say this one more time. The Breakthrough is based on a TRUE STORY. I mean WOW.

You, your family and friends have to go see this movie when it hits theaters next week on April 17th. I feel confident that you will thank me later.

My church family and I are soooo proud of our own Pastor Samuel Rodriguez, Devon Franklin and Stephen “Steph” Curry who produced and executive produced this OUTSTANDING movie. At the end of our church services, we end by saying, Let’s go change the world.” Well, I know this movie will change lives for the better.

I don’t want to say much more until you have seen the movie. So, I will HUSH for now.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote a pretty detailed review stating,”In the mini-genre of Christian, faith-based films, Breakthrough must be credited as one of the most effective additions to the roster. Admittedly there is not a high bar to meet, but this inspirational story directed by Roxann Dawson benefits from strong performances and a minimum of treacly preaching. Basketball superstar Stephen Curry acted as one of the executive producers. Box office should be solid.” I don’t want you to read their review until after you see the movie. Ok?

Would you do me a HUGE favor? After you see this movie, PLEASE return to this blog post to share YOUR thoughts on the movie. Cool beans? I loved the movie and I’m very interested to read what YOUR reviews are about THE BREAKTHROUGH MOVIE.

Do You Know How Value & Self-worth Affect Your Life?

There have been times when I wondered what my life would have been if only I had understood the impact of knowing my worth. Without any extensive self-assessments, I know my relationship choices would have been different.  Hmm…I guess it’s okay to wonder, without spending considerable time feeling disheartened about what coulda shoulda woulda.

My childhood memories include growing up in Rancho Cordova, California as a Brownie and then a Girl Scout for many years. Through those organized program activities, I was introduced to basic leadership skills, courage, team-building, adventure, and confidence – especially when I was one of the top Girl Scout cookie sellers. So, I can say I was familiar with self-worth on a surface level.

What is the Meaning of Self-Worth and Self-Value?

Self-worth and self-value are two related terms that are often used interchangeably. Having a sense of self-worth means that you value yourself, and having a sense of self-value means that you are worthy. The differences between the two are minimal enough that both terms can be used to describe the same general concept.

Many people battle with knowing (and communicating) their value which ultimately affects their relationships and career decisions to say the least.

Powerful Videos

Instead of potentially overwhelming boring you with a lot of talk about how knowing our self-worth and value influences every area of our lives, would you check out the following two videos.

1. YOUR VALUE

2. Know Your Worth, Then Ask For It

After reading this content and watching the videos, would you do me a favor? Would you share your feedback? I would really love to hear your personal stories as to when, or if, you discovered your value. Okay?

While you are discovering and assessing your self-worth, keep a few things in mind.

Maybe you’ve experienced a “failed” relationship, felt stuck in your career, or felt “less than” after comparing your accomplishments with others. Regardless of what chipped away at your self-worth, you CAN rebuild your confidence in YOURSELF.

Final Thought

Know Your WORTH and do not settle for less than you DESERVE. One last thing is that you will encounter those who are unable to see your value, but don’t let their opinion become your reality.

Just felt like sharing the backstory…

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.
