Finding Hope Again

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/24/2016
Finding Hope again.

As many of you know yesterday I was at a loss for inspiration to do the RIPPLE effect.  I was at a place where I had lost everything including hope in everything.  Today I just want you to know that HOPE can bring you through whatever it is that you are experiencing right now.  Next week I will talk about faith but before we can find our faith we have to have enough HOPE to believe it exists.

OUR Focus for today: Hold on to HOPE!

Make sure you know where you are going

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/21/2016

Do you know where you are going?

Many choose to be followers in this world.  Many never think to ask if they person they are following knows where they are going?  The realization is that one needs to ask the important questions to see if the journey is one worth taking.  If your leader is going to a place that suits them only, why are you following?   If your leader has not clue where they are going why are your following?  If your leader is really just a follower making pretend, you should NOT be following them at all.

Our FOCUS for today: Make sure the people we are following are taking us to a place we need to be.

Sharing your gifts with the world!

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/20/2016

Make your Life Matter!

Many of us will be born, grow into adulthood then old age eventually. Many will die without making one moment matter during our short time on this Earth.   If we help one person in our lifetime we would have a job well done.  Our task is not to save the entire world; we will be disappointed if we try.  Our task is to be the light for as many we can.

Today is MONDAY MOTIVATIONS: Thank GOD for your Monday; because some did not wake up to see it.

Our FOCUS for today: Stop living a dead life!

Breaking Before Your BREAK!

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/17/2016
Take a Break

I can be a vacation or a stay cation, either is a must do.  Many of us keep running and running, stressing and stressing.   Time to just “STOP” take time off to regroup and rejuvenate.  I have said this before and I am sure many of you have seen this phrase in one form or another;

“you cannot pour from an empty cup”

This is the weekend; time to take a break before you break!

Our FOCUS for today: STOP!

Voices In Your Head

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/16/2016

Voices in your head

Many of us have convinced ourselves we that we are not worthy of happiness, love or success; we have listened to the voices in our own heads too long.   You see once we stop allowing the voices in our heads to sabotage our self-worth, we will not allow the voices of others to tear our spirits down either.   Silence the negative thoughts you have been telling yourself; silence those and you will be able to silence the voices of others.

Our FOCUS for today: Silence the voices in our heads that discourage us from moving towards our greatness.

Stand Out!

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/15/2016

Show Up Early; stand out!

In this ME first world I am surprised how many people want to get the best of everything but are not willing to SHOW UP and put in the work to get it.  Everything most people want they want handed to them without putting any efforts into being worthy to receive it.  How many of you have heard the term “the early bird gets the worm”?

In business they say if you show up on time you are late already and in life if you drag your feet you may miss out on wonderful opportunities for love and success or your entire destiny.
When you show up early you stand out for a host of reasons; add the fact you do not have too many distractions around.  So stop hiding in the masses; be seen.
Our FOCUS for today: Stop hiding in the back of the room in the group when you are meant to stand out and be seen.

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/14/2016

Clearing Your Clutter!

Spring has come and gone and you are still holding on the junk from your past.  Time to play catch up and clear the clutter from your space in this world.  No matter what it is people, material items or old feelings; let them go!  You cannot have room for the happiness and other positive things if your space is fool of the junk from a time passed.  Time to clean house.

Our FOCUS for today: Clear your clutter and calm your chaos.

Beware the Pretty Poison

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/10/2016
Pretty Poison

Many of us are so hungry our starvation is recognized immediately. Those looking to take advantage are everywhere.  They approach us with a smile, laughter, good conversation and words that make us want to believe.  Nothing is wrong with believing; make sure your belief is in yourself more-so than the hype you happen to be hearing. 

Many of us end up broken and alone after we have given our all to those who are self-serving.  Make sure your investments are yielding high returns in your favor.  If you are receiving little or no return, time to cut your losses and find a new broker for your dreams.  

Beware the “Pretty Poison” in this world.  It comes in beautiful wrappers with seductive words and allot of shine.  Do not be blinded by the light and lies. 

Our FOCUS for today:  See the world with your eyes open wider.   Do not allow your wants to outweigh your needs.  Greed brings grief.

Making a path for your troubles to follow

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/09/2016
Making a path for your troubles to follow

Be very careful that you are not clearing a path for your troubles to follow you. Have you ever noticed how fire fighters cut paths so that major brush fires will follow; detours the fire so that it will not cause more destruction? In life we need to make sure we do not clear a path for the troubles in our lives to follow us; they will. The fire fighters are professionals; they know exactly how to create the perfect detours many times. In life we are not the experts at averting and avoiding certain road blocks and pit falls; we think we are clearing a path for us to run away but in reality we are clearing a path for our troubles to follow and catch up to us. Sometimes we just need to walk by faith and stand our ground; the rains will come to wash away not only our doubts and fears but to douse the raging inferno trying to consume us.

Our FOCUS for today: Face your fire, harness it then bathe in its warmth.

Unfinished Business

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/08/2016
Unfinished Business

Today is all about completing your unfinished business. How many projects have you said you will get to later yet later never comes or has come and gone? WE cannot move forward in life and love if we are still holding on to the relationships ended. WE cannot feel comfortable in our homes when they are filled with the memories from our past. The realization is that you cannot pour from a broken or incomplete cup.

Our FOCUS for today: Put the finishing touches on your unfinished business.

Which Direction Are You Going

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/07/2016

Which direction are you headed?

Today is all about our personal perceptions when we are in the midst of our storms.  When we are lost in the darkness we have two choices; expect more darkness or push forward toward an exit into the light. 

Many of us convince ourselves we are at our lowest point; wallow at ground zero or pick yourself up, brush yourself off and rise.

Many may not know that I am one of those people who uses both sides of my brain equally so as much as I am analytical I am artistic.  I tell my story through my art more so than my speaking.  Read the words on my painting, then have a talk with the person you see in the mirror about your answer.

Our FOCUS for today: Make sure you have convinced yourself to go in the right direction.

Breaking FREE!

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/06/2016

Breaking free from your cocoon!

Far too long many of us have been living wrapped inside our feelings, emotions, lack of confidence and self esteem. We have been wrapped so tightly that we have become used to adapting to the space that seems to be getting smaller; constricting our growth.

The circle of life requires us to GROW! The only way we will not break through our cocoons is if we make the choice not to do so or we are too ill or weak to fight our way through. Many cannot use the later as an excuse so FIGHT and PUSH. Break through then spread your beaufiful wings and FLY!

Our FOCUS for today: Give all that you have to break every chain, vicious cycle and through our cocoons. A beautiful new transformed you is waiting to soar with the eagles.

The Story of a Good Life!

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/03/2016
The Good Life

Many of us spend our entire lives chasing the wrong things; love, money, friendships, popularity. These things are just the residuals of having the true ingriedients for a good/great life. You see when we have the respect that was earned, the honesty that is oh so appreciated and the trust gained on both sides, nothing is left in the recipe but the loyalty that we receive in the end. Everything else just seems to follow; positive can attract positive.

Our FOCUS for today: Find the good life and live it well.

The RIPPLE Effect: 06/02/2016

From Domino to Ripple Effect

Yesterday I wrote about coming to our crossroad in life; today I am continuing the look into that journey. Many have heard the saying "being sick and tired of being sick and tired" Before we get to the point where we convince ourselves that taking the low road is the only option, we need to consider our exodus.

Time to leave the bad people, situations, relationships and bad thoughts behind. Time to FOCUS on what really matters in life. If it does not make you happy, leave it where it is.

Our Focus for today: You have been on the ground long enough, time to stand up, clean up, pack up, look up and move up.

The Crossroads of life!

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/01/2016

Realizations of Life!

At some point many people discover that they we are at a crossroad in their lives. They do not turn around and look backward, they simply "reflect" upon life. Many look upon the choices made and the results. Now that many are at the crossroads of the rest of their lives; time to decide who needs to be along for the remainder of the journey.

Time to decide who you want along for the remainder of your journey; today is your crossroads day. Not everyone we have come across in life is meant to be in our present and future.

There are reasons why some people have been removed from your space on this earth. The universe has done its part now you need to do yours. Make the choice to keep those who ruined your past from destroying your present and future. Only you can remove the obstacles the divine and universe have placed between you; only you can allow them back into your life.

Our FOCUS for today: Choose your next road wisely.
