Strong Finish

It’s a New Month, New Quarter, New Season, and hopefully and New Mindset emerging in each of you engaging with this post. What have you done thus far to ensure that you’re going me meet your goals? Of course we had those BIG goals for the year, but today, I want you to consider that goal that’s for today – let’s aim for a daily strong finish. If necessary, let’s start with these steps: recommit your goal(s); be purpose driven, not emotionally driven; determine what’s working and continue it; determine what’s not working and STOP it; determine where change needs to take place.

I read a quote from Gary Ryan Blair that spoke volumes to me, ““Finishing strong is an everyday occurrence as there will never be a race, goal, day, quarter or year that does not come to an end. This means finishing strong is not an act…it’s a habit.” — Gary Ryan Blair Meditate on that. A strong finish is habitual!!!

As your Empowerment Ignitor, here is a short message I released to EMPOWER you today!

Rely on God

Jeremiah 17:5-8 MSG reads, “5 God’s Message: “Cursed is the strong one who depends on mere humans, Who thinks he can make it on muscle alone and sets God aside as dead weight. 6 He’s like a tumbleweed on the prairie, out of touch with the good earth. He lives rootless and aimless in a land where nothing grows. 7 “But blessed is the man who trusts me, God, the woman who sticks with God. 8 They’re like trees replanted in Eden, putting down roots near the rivers – Never a worry through the hottest of summers, never dropping a leaf, Serene and calm through droughts, bearing fresh fruit every season.”

Live with No Regrets!

Happy Monday, family! I’m so grateful to be alive!

Have you ever made a mistake? Of course you have, we all have! One of the unfortunate things about making mistakes is our ability to get over it. I wanted to encourage you today to let it go, live in the moment with no regrets. We cannot change anything that’s already happened but we can certainly navigate what’s before us successfully with the right mindset, motive and truth concerning our purpose.

Today, and everyday going forth, I will embrace the life; learning from my past and moving into my next.


Love & The Cross

I was honored to be guest on the premier lauch of a new podcast, The Love & Podcast, and wanted to share the dialogue with you’ll. When we think about LOVE and relationships, how often do you think about the cross? We find that we often make excuses for what we do, because we’re “human”, but the cross should make a difference in how we engage and behave. Listen and please leave your feedback.

I Know Who I Am

How do you define yourself? Is it based on your job, your degree, your marital status – who are you? When I’m asked about who I am, I share that I’m Valerie, the Empowerment Ignitor!

I have faced many trials and tribulations on my journey of becoming, and there were times I didn’t feel worthy of being mentioned or introduced, I was living a life filled with shame. It’s not until I began valuing myself, that I was able to hold my head up and be recognized for the jewel that I am. I went through hell to learn how to help others navigate through it, and the assignment fits me.

If you’re like me, you’ve had those days where nothing seems to make sense, and you’re questioning your role in life – if so, today, I want you to celebrate yourself. You are amazing, valuable and to many, even essential.

Today declare, I Know Who I Am, Empowered to Empower Others!

I’m Taking It Back

Do you ever feel as if you’ve been robbed of your potential? You blamed society, your school, your family – anyone that will shift the responsibility from you, concerning your life. Hear me clearly, No One can rob you of what they don’t have access to, and certainly not what’s within you. I used to blame people for my misfortunes in life. I didn’t have what I desired because I didn’t put in the work to obtain it, nor did I value it enough to maintain what I had. I was lazy and careless and I wanted to make it everyone elses problem.

With maturity, comes strength; with strength, comes strategy; and the right strategy brings accomplishment. If you’re desiring to get back what you “lost”, get to work! Start focusing on your truth; discovering, defining, and developing your purpose; positioning yourself to succeed. You have the power to recover it all, but you must endure a process in order to get to your expected end.

I’m taking the necessary steps to regain all that I’ve lost and to tap into those things I didn’t realize I already had. I’m a winner and I’m taking back the winners circle in my life. Won’t you join me?
