Blessed & Highly Favored in the Lord

I have just completed my daily Bible reading and am soooooooooooooo excited! Today's reading was Part 3 in a series about having a vision. Vision and dreams are things that I talk a lot about in my coaching practice, my Blog Talk Radio show and almost every publication or workshop presentation that I write.

Today's reading was so inspirational to me because it was a confirmation and reaffirmation of everything that I have been doing personally as well as those things that I coach others. The reading pointed me to Ephesians 3:20 which reads

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all
that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us."

This verse is absolutely BRILLIANT!!!!!

God can do anything. His loving kindness, goodness and mercy allows us to accomplish feats that go far beyond our wildest imagination. The human mind is great. People are able to envision amazing things and use our skills and creativity to bring those things into fruition. We do not do this alone. We do it because of God's love and the power, His power, that works in us. If we can think it, it can be done. Someone imagined visiting the moon and, lo and behold, it was accomplished. Someone else thought that people all around the world should be able to talk to one another and conduct business; then along came cellular phones and the internet. Yes, the human mind is great but God's ability is even greater!

The word says "exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think." Let's meditate on this for a moment. Think about what each of these words mean. Exceedingly is defined as "to an extreme or unusual degree." Abundantly means "plentiful" or "rich". Above is defined as "beyond the level or reach of". Power is "ability" or "strength". God is saying that He can unusually provide far beyond the level of riches that our minds can so commonly reach through the ability that we already possess within ourselves. That is AWESOME!!!!!
So my word to you today is to keep dreaming, keep creating vision and keep speaking those things you want and desire as though they already are. Nothing is impossible but remember even dreams take work so put your personal power to good use. You can do anything through Christ Jesus who strengthens you!

To your dynamic success and happy living!

Upcoming BlogTalk Radio Shows

Good afternoon,

I have been hosting a radio show on BlogTalk Radio titled "Building Bridges" for the past year or so. You can listen to the last show by clicking on the player located on the left side of this page just under the "About Me" section. Unfortunately I have been somewhat inconsistent in maintaining a regular schedule. I think that this is due in part to the days and times the show aired. To address this issue and the changing needs of my business, I have decided to move the show from Tuesdays at 1:30 PM CST to Fridays at 3:30 PM CST. I am hoping that this change will allow me to be more consistent in delivering quality content to my loyal listeners as well as allow those who desire to listen in live but could not do so previsouly because of the time.

The Building Bridges Show airs over the net at Upcoming show dates and times are as follows:

Baptized & Other Good News!

Guess what I did? Oh like you didn't know from the title of this post. That's right, I got baptized! Yes, I finally found a church home with Faith Tabernacle. I was very excited about this because it is right in line with my plans to make 2008 my year to be great. So many exciting things are happening all at once that it is so difficult to get around to including them in my blog. I am working hard to update my loyal readers on all that is going on with me and my business as well as to continue to offer some great new tips, tools and advice on how to succeed in business, love and life. Please bear with me!

I have been on a volunteering tirade for some time now due in part because of the lack of color in most of these activities. I am saddened, no, disheartened by the disinterest among African-Americans in volunteering. Like Oprah said on the Big Give - PAY IT FORWARD! Here here.

In other news, my Toastmasters club is well under way but of course I would love to boost the attendance of guests. Feel free to come on down to get the wonderful support TM clubs offer their members. Visit for more information on club meeting times, days and location. I do sincerely hope to see you there.

Tomorrow is my official induction into the Rotary One club. WHOOHOO!!! I have been fuddling around with my membership for well over a year so it's about time. Thank you to David Durham for being so patient and supportive. I am sure that being a Rotarian will be a wonderful investment of my time and I am looking forward to throwing my expertise toward their many volunteer projects.

Something new is going on with my strategic planning project and board involvement with New Life Coach Inc. We have restructured the entire coach training and volunteer program. Find out more by emailing me at You won't want to miss out on these exciting new changes.

Let's see, what else, what else, what else....? Oh, yes! I have started back to co-hosting Networking For Professionals (NFP) events again. The next one is actually this Thursday, March 20th at 6PM. The location has changed to Tizi Melloul's. More space and easier access by public transportation which means more attendees and greater opportunities for networking. For more info on that visit

Some of you have asked what I am reading today. HA! This is always an impossible question to answer because I tend to multi-task my reading. :) I am in the middle of 5 books. Of course A New Earth is on the list and I have been trying to follow along with Oprah's 10-week webinar event with Eckhart Tolle without much success. Unfortunately I keep getting booted out. The rebroadcast doesn't seem to work all that well either. On another note, I don't get all of the complaints about the book being difficult reading. It reads much like poetry and Tolle does a very good job of relating concepts to everyday life experiences. It must be the "I" taking over again (inside joke for all of the New Earthers).

I am also reading Jesus Life Coach, Teach Yourself NLP, This Is How We Do It and Odd Thomas. Finally, I am in the process of reviewing Mastering the Seven Decisions that Determine Personal Success. I will post a formal review as soon as I am finished reading it. Thank goodness for that speed reading course I took with Kinetic Advanced Learning!

I think that's it for now. With my new outlook and current transformation, I will be making some changes to my website at as well as to my Blog Talk Radio show. I will post those updates as soon as they occur.

Until next time, to your dynamic success and happy living!
