Nothing Like a Sprinkle of Inspiration

Happy Monday!

Don’t quit your day dreams! Let me say that ONE MORE TIME for those who didn’t hear me in the back of the room. DO NOT QUIT your day dreams and Don’t Settle for less.

The RIGHT people will notice you and appreciate your talents, skills, and abilities at the RIGHT time. #DueSeason #CareerInspiration

Now that we remember what NOT to do, let’s discuss what we NEED to do:

* Dream Big & Bigger

* Take Career Risks

* Mentor & Help Others

* Inspire Others

* Each one, Teach One

* Take one step at a time to avoid feeling so overwhelmed

* Remember that it’s never too late to start fresh

Like my LinkedIN connection Brigette Hyacinth says, “Nothing can replace the human touch.” So, while you are waiting to be promoted, developing personally and professionally, etc., Please remember to CONNECT with others. #humantouch

Speaking of CONNECT, Are we “connected” on social media? Let’s get connected.

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.

On My Heart

Having a smile on your face doesn’t equal having peace. So many times we have a smile on our faces to mask pain or anguish. Lord knows I’ve done it.

So, Father God, I come before you now thanking you and praising you for who you are. Lord, I pray that you would remove the spirit of heaviness, despair, and the desire to give up. It is on my heart that someone needs a breakthrough RIGHT NOW.

Lord, someone reading this feels they cannot bear anymore bad news. Lord lift every burden. In fact, someone feels they are drowning and is questioning their reason to live. The blood of Jesus is against any feelings of suicide. Lord, this is urgent.

As I sit on this lightrail commuting to work, I know YOU can FIX what needs fixing. Lord touch us. Lord we need YOUR peace. Lord we need YOUR healing.

I just keep hearing DON’T GIVE UP on yourself, your dreams, and PLEASE DON’T GIVE UP ON GOD!!!

So, in the name of Jesus we decree and declare supernatural breakthroughs are here now.

Amen and Amen

Oakland’s 2nd Annual Black Joy Parade Experience!!! (2/24/19)

Soooo, I’m supposed to be getting ready for bed, however, I need to capture the raw emotion from yesterday’s Black Joy Parade experience.

Yesterday, February 24, 2019, I had the plum pleasing privilege to be apart of Oakland’s 2nd Annual Black Joy Parade with my amazing dance team aka my 100sUnit dance sisters.

I was really going to wait to write about my experience simply because I’M TIRED and the last few weeks wore ya girl OUT but reading an article from The Mercury News inspired me.

What is the Black Joy Parade?

Oakland did an amazing job bringing a positive experience where thousands celebrated our beautiful black heritage. Check out The Mercury News article Oakland’s 2nd annual Black Joy Parade celebrates energy, creativity, excellence for more great information and pictures about the awesome parade. Make plans to attend next year.

My AMAZINGLY talented 100sUnit dance sister Rochelle Westbrooks

So, as you can imagine, 100sunit came to represent our black girl magic and sisterhood; WE DID JUST THAT!! Check out our 100sunit Instagram page for more highlights.

Back to Rochelle Westrooks of CheNailsBeauty based in Sacramento, CA. The Mercury News photographer captured “Rochelle Westbrooks, of Sacramento, raises her arms as she dances during the Black Joy Parade in Oakland, Calif., on Sunday, Feb. 24, 2019. (Jose Carlos Fajardo/Bay Area News Group)”

There is sooooo much more to Rochelle than the amazing nail designs she creates. This sista is TALENTED as she is a makeup artist, dancer, makes her own extraordinary costume/outfits and is a great mom. Don’t sleep on my sis Rochelle.

My 2019 BJP experience

Pictures are worth 1000 words so I’m going to let the pics share my experience. Check out pics from many of my 100sunit sisters shared on social media. These pics show my AMAZING experience at the 2019 Black Joy Parade.

Thank you Oakland for hosting such a powerful event for so many vendors, performers, and many more to celebrate OUR BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL. As usual, thank you Venetia James and Phyllis Cook who are the founders of 100sunit.com . Their creativity and choreography caused us to WIN for BEST OVERALL at yesterday’s parade.

Building walls??

When I think of the walls that surround me, I feel overwhelmingly anxious. Walls can be the very think you feel is blocking you or standing in the way of you reaching your goals.

What walls? Well, my unfulfilling job, debt (mainly school loans…OUCH), mediocre salary, job title/classification, fear, qualifications, etc.

I realized those “walls” didn’t have to be a bad thing and how I looked at those “walls” is what would make the difference. SHIFT YOUR PERSPECTIVE!

For instance, what if I started looking at debt as something I’m assigned to concur in this life, so I can show other people how to do the same thing. Ya know like when you take a Dave Ramsey Financial Literacy class, isn’t it more relatable to learn from someone who was ‘in your shoes’ or worse off in debt before they applied financial literacy principles and now they are debt-free?!!

I’m just saying. I realized I was my own wall. Get out your own way!

So, once I started realizing that walls didn’t have to CONFINE. Walls are meant to be climbed, jumped, painted, or torn down BUT NOT CONFINE.

What “walls” have you allowed to confine you?

Start today by SHIFTING YOUR PERSPECTIVE for the better.
