Becoming Great

definingmoment pic__1397012384_67.247.59.192One of the greatest joys I witness as a life coach is seeing my clients come in one way and leave another way.  I’ve realized that its so important to not only ourselves, but for others that our becoming great is vital for the world.  I often tell young adults that the richest source of untapped potential is in the graveyard.  Think about how much greatness never got to be realized for whatever reason.  I don’t want anyone whom I have the ability to be in connection with, to go through life not realizing they have a greatness that is unique to them and necessary for the world.

I implore you to be relentless and tenacious in your desire to become great. There will be so many forces and situations to prove otherwise, but you have to  be steadfast and a bit stubborn.  Let no thing, no person, no lie, no anything ever deter you from experiencing the freedom of being great.  To put simply, it’s an out of body experience.  Everyone should get the chance to experience this feeling.  However, as I stated above, many will leave this earth living an ordinary-run-of-the-meal life.  Not saying that to be condemning, but I am saying what if there’s more?

Too often in life we settle for good when really we can settle for great.  Many of my clients were doing very good.  Some extremely successful, but yet were not anywhere near the vicinity of greatness.  When you realize that you’re only scratching the surface of what could possibly be, it’s an eye-opening moment.  You and I were not made by accident.  This is the truth.  We were thoughts in the mind of God and he saw fit for you and I to exist.  Think of those babies who never left the hospital.  You and I did.  Dare to be brave. Dare to be great.

Remember we have the ability to not only change our world, but the world as a whole….BE GREAT!!

Until Next Time,

Thrive At Every Level

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

Successful people have a secret that most don’t talk about.  They understand that you must be excellent at every step of the dream journey. Not when the dream arrives, but before and during the process.  I’ve told you  before that we are legends and no one will be able to live the human experience as us, quite like us.  So in everything be legendary.  If your dream is to be an actress, be legendary in your classes.Success Starts Here Freeway Style Desert Landscape

Life is designed for you to thrive not survive.  Life happens from you.  We are provided with the tools we need to thrive and succeed in our purposes and callings.  We sometimes allow society’s standard of success to cloud our perspectives. You are so dynamic that you can be a life-changing agent for another at Point A.  Why deny someone that extraordinary gift of yourself because its not a point Point Z (where we all want to be)? Is that fair?

Remember the magic happens not at the destination, but along the journey.  The truth is you really enjoy the journey more than the actual goal.  Never for a moment think that just because you’re not where you’d like to be that you can’t be of use.  That’s hogwash. In fact, the impact you could make on a person’s life would only solidify your greatness in the future.

Remember we have the ability to not only change our world, but the world as a whole….BE GREAT!!

Self Talk

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

Dr. A.R. Bernard said it best, “Our words create our world”.  Our words are very powerful.  It is through words that bonds are made. It is through words that hearts have been broken. Words are energy.  Often we don’t realize that we have words that we communicate to ourselves unknowingly.  This is known as our self talk.  We have ongoing conversations with ourselves about everything.  The question is what does that conversation consist of? If you are honest enough to admit it, our self talk isn’t that great.

How do we remedy this? We create a new self talk. Here are some tips as to how to create a new self talk.

 

1. Speak words of affirmation to yourself every morning. There’s an article I wrote called 7 Sayings To Command Your Morning. (see beliefnet.com) This is a great way to get your morning started as well as get your healthy self talk in progress.

2. Read and mediate on scriptures and words that uplift you. There are so many wonderful words written in God’s word that speaks to how He feels about us.  It’s important that we know these scriptures like rote.

3. Whenever a negative conversation arises, speak to it. Literally say I’m not having this conversation today.

4. Create a playlist of songs and scriptures that speak not only to your spirit, but your soul.  Self talk is rooted in soul care.

5. Accountability– It’s important to surround ourselves with people who not only see the greatness in us, but also won’t allow us to fall into the trap of being negative. That’s very important.

Remember we have the ability to not only change our world, but the world as a whole….BE GREAT!!

Until Next Time,

The Last of the Mohicans (Saving the best for last)

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

There’s something inherent to almost every human being and the concept of the time table.  We’ve all been guilty of it at some point or another. We believe that we should be at a certain place or accomplished a goal by a certain age.  One of the biggest breakthrough’s for me, and I share this with my clients is the principle of not being wed to an outcome.  What happens is we get caught up in the how vs. getting what we want.  God is never on our time.  The sooner we embrace this, the better off we will be.

I know it can seem like you’re the last of the Mohicans, but it could be that God is saving the best for last. Here’s a quick story.  A man lived his life right and struggled through most of his life.  He suffered many ailments and financially it seemed as if he could not catch a break. He often felt behind many of his peers who had all he wanted– a family, home and success.  He met a friend in church who was recently born again and wanted to turn his life around.  They became friends and while the man continued to live right, his friend still did what he did before he sought a life change (engaging in drinking, promiscuity, drugs). The friend eventually meets the woman of his dreams and they lived happily ever after.  The man was so confused.  He asked God “Lord why?” He went to sleep. In his dream, God spoke to him and showed him two walls.  One wall was black with a white circle.  The other wall was white with a black circle.  God told the man ” that black wall represents your friend.  He loves me, but is dealing with a lot of darkness.  The white wall is you. You do your best to live by my precepts, but there are some things that we still need to work on. But, here’s what you need to know; I love both walls the same.”

The man understood and continued to live right.  He eventually met the woman of his dreams and now lives a financially prosperous life.  He’s in his forties and healthy and able to enjoy the abundant life he’s been blessed with.  God saved the best for last. What’s the moral of the story? Stay doing what you know to be right and eventually you will reap. Not when you’d like but you have to trust you will.

 

Remember we have the ability to not only change our world, but the world as a whole….BE GREAT!!

I have a client who is really a great a person with so much to give and offer the world. However, although he has achieved success the thing he truly desires always seems to escape him.  As a result he has become self destructive in relationships.  The thing that he fails to see is that everything
