Becoming Great

Becoming Great

The Power of Reconciling

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

I spent the last six weeks entrenched with a dynamic group of young people. As always, I end up learning more from them than I could ever teach them.  There is something magical about youth and being child-like.  Over the course of our time together we bonded as a family.  We fought with each other and loved each other.  One powerful moment happened when two of my kids had a sharp disagreement. It was so powerful that it literally changed the atmosphere.  One left the room crying the other, became cold and mean.  I naturally, intervened and tried to rectify the situation. But, something told me to let it go.  After our session together the two girls stayed afterward and decided to talk things out.  While there was some screaming and yelling, eventually it got to a place of calm and reconciliation began to take place.download

I thought to myself how powerful and healing it is to reconcile with another.  Too often we find ourselves being so protective of our feelings that it takes precedence over a mended relationship.  To put it simply we’ve become too self-absorbed.  As a Life Coach, I’m a strong proponent for reconciling.  My clients, through their own admission, have said that they know they have let go of some great relationships. How many times have you let go of a relationship over being caught up being right or your emotions?

The greatest evidence of God is when we put our differences aside and forgive each other and remain committed to healing and mending our relationships. Believe it or not, when we reconcile the relationship tends to be stronger and deeper than it was before.  In the end it is our connections that help us grow in life. Being right may feel good for a while, but losing someone whom we know was for us has a stronger impact on us.  Today let the pride go and go reconcile.

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

Until Next Time,

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!!

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!!
