Law Number one: If You’re Gonna Buy Caviar, Make It Beluga

Snapshot_20130131_4

What I took away from this part of chapter one is that if you want to be successful you need to  learn to try! Not that Kimora is telling me something I didn’t already know. Sometimes I do not try thing because I scared to fail or I think I need to finish college then i will try. But I  need to get up and get busy living my dreams even if they are not my reality yet. But don’t just dream set goals and work towards them daily.

I have to believe in my dreams first before I can ask someone else too. Then learn to have self confidence because when you are

confident in yourself you are able to believe in your dreams more. You began to understand that there is nothing you can’t do if you keep God first and apply yourself. Its  a course not that easy because there will be tough times but that why you have to keep God first in all that you do. When you find yourself not able to focus you know you can turn to God to keep you going and HE will give you all that you need to move forward. Most important make sure the plan you have for yourself is inline with the one God has for you. If it isn’t then make some changes! Because there is nothing better than what God has for you period!

Also, don’t wait for anyone to tell you have potential. You should be already tapping into your talents and master your craft. Don’t be in a rush take the time to know who you are first. Trust and know you are wroth getting to know verses some boy that may not be apart of your life. Yet, even after he is gone you will still be there so why start investing in yourself now than later. “Keep the momentum moving forward and know that it is easier to make adjustments once you’re in motion than if you’re frozen on the spot (Simmons p.1 pg. 19). Never allow yourself to come to a stand still keep moving and growing!

She start this part of the chapter her fundamentals of her ground zero for success that she has called “Grand Aspiration Theory”  aka The G.A.T and  they are the following:

  1. High aspirations breed frustration. 
  2. Frustration breeds motivation.
  3. Motivation pushes you to action-  whether you take tiny baby steps or huge strides.
  4. Action breeds confidence; you start to feel in control.
  5. Confidence is cumulative: Once you start acquiring it, you get more of it.
  6. Soon enough, you prove to yourself that you’re a star who can surmount any obstacle and achieve whatever you decide you want to achieve with your life. You’re on a roll!

I leave you with this thought. Your dreams or goals are not as far out reach as you think. When we were learning to walk it was not over night. Was it? No.  We stumbled and fail many times before we got our balance to take our first step. So we need to get ourselves balanced before we take our steps towards any of our dreams or goals. Don’t forget our step are ordered by God so don’t forget to follow HIS lead. If we’re following HIS lead we’ll about balance and we’ll be about step out on thing called FAITH!

Be Balanced. With Love, Dee.

He who is not courageous enough to take risk will accomplish nothing in life. – Muhammad Ali

Daily Devotional.

Reverence For The House Of God

Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the Lord. Lev. 19:30

God is high and holy; and to the humble, believing soul, His house on earth, the place where His people meet for worship, is as the gate of heaven. The song of praise, the words spoken by Christ’s ministers, are God’s appointed agencies to prepare a people for the church above, for that loftier worship.

When the worshipers enter the place of meeting, they should do so with decorum, passing quietly to their seats. . . . Common talking, whispering, and laughing should not be permitted in the house of worship, either before or after the service. Ardent, active piety should characterize the worshipers.

If some have to wait a few minutes before the meeting begins, let them maintain a true spirit of devotion by silent meditation, keeping the heart uplifted to God in prayer that the service may be of special benefit to their own hearts and lead to the conviction and conversion of other souls. They should remember that heavenly messengers are in the house. We all lose much sweet communion with God by our restlessness, by not encouraging moments of reflection and prayer. . . .

Elevate the standard of Christianity in the minds of your children; help them to weave Jesus into their experience; teach them to have the highest reverence for the house of God and to understand that when they enter the Lord’s house it should be with hearts that are softened and subdued by such thoughts as these: “God is here; this is His house. I must have pure thoughts and holiest motives. . . . This is the place where God meets with and blesses His people.” . . .

Parents should not only teach, but command, their children to enter the sanctuary with sobriety and reverence.

Practice reverence until it becomes a part of yourself.

From Devotional: Our Father Cares, p. 56.

Study Session: Struggle was real

Nothing stops the study session even it means occupying a random corner in the student center. The struggle was indeed real! Lewis aka louway and I  got a lot done while still being silly!  But our goal are even realer! You have to keep people around you that is will to put in the work to be successful! Chose your friends wisely !

Happy Studying! With Love, Dee.

There are two types of best friends.

Number 1 :
The best friend who you’re real close to. You see them at least twice a week, maybe more. You talk a lot and catch up on everything.

Number 2 :
The best friend you don’t talk to as often, but deep down, you’ll always know that they’re your best friend. They understand you, although they barely see you.

 

When friends go from being type number one to type number two, it can be very difficult. But over the years I have  learn that they are still my best friend just on different paths that  may not cross each other path as often as we would like. Also, never be afraid to make a new best friend don’t feel you can’t make a new best friend because you think it will replace your old one. Just make friends they serve  unique role in your life not matter how long or short you’ve know them. But understand not everyone is your friend!

Go Be Friendly. With Love Dee.
