Why Aren’t You Dominating in Your Sphere of Influence?

Do you believe in yourself? Not just that surface belief, but that deep-down belief, where no one can make you change your mind about your worth?  I had a conversation with a few powerful women the other night about their roles in the Kingdom and asked a simple question, “Are you dominating in your sphereContinue reading “Why Aren’t You Dominating in Your Sphere of Influence?”

Are You Self-Aware?

This month, I have been educating a group on Emotional Intelligence, and our focus this evening was Self-Awareness. They shared that this topic should seemingly be easy, as their emotions were intact.  We were all ready for the new discussion until I asked them to consider this thought, “Consciousness and Self-Awareness go hand in hand.”Continue reading “Are You Self-Aware?”

Ready, Set, Succeed!

Great morning! I don’t need to say a lot to you this morning, as the message is pretty self explanatory. Today, get yourself READY, SET, and SUCCEED! There is no one else that wants you to succeed more than I do. I know you’re saying, “Valerie, you don’t even know me”, and that may beContinue reading “Ready, Set, Succeed!”

Don’t STOP!

What have you told yourself about your purpose today? Have you even had that conversation? Today, like no other day, is the day of manifestation! Go ahead and tell yourself, “TODAY I WILL EXPERIENCE MANIFESTATION”, and it will happen because today, you’re not going to STOP. Life throws many opportunites our way, I know itContinue reading “Don’t STOP!”

BEGIN Today!

You, yes, YOU, are equipped to succeed! In my journey of becoming, I realized that instead of moving forward as I was led to do, I was always waiting for someone to support me or validate me – which generally left me stuck. I took the time to review my path, make the needed re-alignment,Continue reading “BEGIN Today!”

My Money, Time and Beliefs

What do those three things in the title have in common? They are all excuses we use when being approached about making a decision; they are barriers and limitations. I can’t do that because I don’t have enough money, I don’t have the time, and I don’t believe that it’s going to help me. SoundContinue reading “My Money, Time and Beliefs”

Imagine and LIVE!

Do you still imagine? Merriam-Webster defines it as” to form a mental image of (something not present)” as a transitive verb. Imagining requires our ability to think and see. What are you thinking? Does it enable you to visualize a successful and prosperous future, or does what you see limit you? Today, remind yourself that you’re a winner. Continue reading “Imagine and LIVE!”

The Stretch Is a Part of the Process

I’m not a rubberband or pizza dough, so why am I feeling STRETCHED? Stretching is a part of our process of becoming. Our capacity increases along with the propensity to excute our purpose on a larger scale. If you desire more from your life, expect the stretch. If you’re content where you are – IContinue reading “The Stretch Is a Part of the Process”

Impact

This photo was taken with my kings in 2017 after the weekly chapel, and it feels like yesterday. As Character Coach for Bluefield College Men’s Basketball, I am often asked why I do what I do, and my response never changes. I realize that I’m more interested in making an IMPACT in the lives ofContinue reading “Impact”

Ask For Help

In a session with one of my clients this week, I posed the question, “What made you finally ASK for help?”. She paused, smiled, dropped her head – attempting to somewhat dissengage, but I didn’t let her. She later shared that she was afraid of how she was feeling and that she was TIRED. IContinue reading “Ask For Help”
