YOU make it happen, no one else…

Hello friends!

This would have to be one of the most important life lessons. NO ONE ELSE can make you successful. It’s all up to you. You’re responsible for your own success. Period.

On the contrary, no one or no thing can make you fail either. It serves you no good to blame education, the economy, or what ever offsets you’ve had in your life. Carrying on in that manner is taking and accepting the victim mentality. I caution you NEVER to do this. Thousands of individuals have succeeded despite these hardships and even worse, so don’t make excuses for yourself and try convincing yourself that some how you’re some kind of victim.

Just like my last blog, the grass isn’t ANY greener on the other side. You either have it now or can get everything you need to be successful. Just remember it’s up to you, no one else…and then just do it!

Success, Control your destiny

Some may think “that’s easy for xyz to say” when they see successful people, or someone they believe to have more than them. H-E-LL-O!? How do you think anyone is able to say the things they say? Freely available to assist you. Take it and utilize it to your ability.

So it’s not your sponsor, your upline, teacher, boss, family, friends…not the economy or the government. It’s not the compensation plan, or any of these things perceived as road blocks.  Success is YOURS if you really want it…kick those obstacles to the curve. ONLY YOU control this. Keep in mind “If it’s to be, it’s up to me.”

“I used to say, ‘things cost too much.’ Then my teacher straightened me out on that by saying, ‘The problem isn’t that things cost too much. The problems is that you can’t afford it.’ That’s when I finally understood that the problem wasn’t it-–the problem was me!”

-Jim Rohn

Have a plan (a realistic plan)

Good day to you! 🙂

I was reviewing “Rules of Success” at SFI (one of the MANY awesome marketing tips they have available), and thought hmm…here’s something that needed to be heard. In life, everything is done in steps. In school we start from Pre-School and work our way up to college. At work, we start at the bottom and work our way up to the top whether it be a supervisor, manager etc. So just like everyday life, in our business we must work strategically too, right?

Goals are indeed imperative, but without a plan…how is one to obtain their goals? Keep in mind, these goals must be realistic. Makes no sense setting yourself up for something and then feeling like a failure because you’ve set the bar too high too soon. Pace yourself. Set goals, plans

SFI is TRULY one of the few businesses that allow you to earn while you learn. Your first 6-12 months of being here should be viewed as a “training period”. If you expected something overnight, you’re not being realistic. Everyone would be rich, lol! Instead, plan to work the hardest during your first 6-12 months and get compensated the least. Don’t expect large earnings until AFTER you’ve educated yourself and given yourself enough time to implement your plan.


“Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.”

-Fitzhugh Dodson

Be persistent, but remain realistic. Should you have inquires about joining SFI with me as your Team Leader, then contact me here on my blog, Facebook, YouTube  or my website. 

Until next time,



My my my…

What a shameful little blogger I’ve been…how dare I spend my time living when I have a blog to attend to? Ha Ha…just kidding. All jokes aside, I’ve been MAJORLY inspired today…like, tremendously! Here I am reading the forum at SFI (Strong Future International), and I see a rather relevant post meant to inspire and motivate. On it of course was a video left for us…and the feed on the side led me to this video. Sweet nibblets! I felt every word. Usually, videos like that come off cheesy and unrealistic, but the fact that it wasn’t promoting anything and just speaking to the people in a very general fashion…really allowed me to feel that genuine vibe. You can watch it too!

Talk about TRUE motivation! This guy knows what he’s talking about  

BE inspired, get up off the couch and GRAB your goals by the neck!  Cheers and happy successes to you!

Until next time…


What’s 2013 mean for YOU?

Greetings young whip-pa snappers! 😀

New Years Eve, champagne glass, clocks, partying, resolutions

New years Eve and New years day are right around the corner. How cliche of me to blog about it right? Ah well, you’ll thank me later…[lol]. It’s a Monday night, you’re sitting at home counting down the clock…sipping your egg-nog or whatever it is you’ll be drinking to bring in the New Year (I hope it’s water) Haha…No… seriously. What’s on your list of good things for the following year? And by list, let me make this VERRRRRRY clear! I do mean IMPLEMENTED tasks into your daily, weekly or monthly routines! [lol] I too, am guilty of jotting things down and never getting around to them. So, let’s toast to motivation people! Be a little kinder, knock the bad habits and procrastination. Dream BIG but work even bigger than you dream! Do something thoughtful for yourself and those you love. Heck, try something new (positive & inspiring…nothing crazy lol). Just BE, enjoy, prosper, LIVE!

New Year 2013, Celebration Hats

I have a few things up my sleeve for 2013 but we shall see when it gets here. 😉 Be blessed readers! Share your thoughts, questions, comments, goals in the section below. I’m anxious to hear what you have in mind! 😀


Best regards,



For My Youth…

Hello readers,

success for the youth

To my youth, boy or girl…welcome. Let me have a few moments of your time like there’s nobody else in the world listening but you and I. Tell me about yourself…in as many or as little words deemed necessary. I’d like to know. Will you? CAN you? What are your biggest obstacles in life? What are the least? Did you know that with every whimsical moment in our lives, we absorb a lesson? Are you aware of the effects of a well absorbed experienced individual? Do my questions make you think….or skim down the page? Are you patiently awaiting the grand finale of this blog or are you running away consciously and subconsciously? Stay a while. No matter where you are in your life, minimal or major…stay here for a moment and take heed of my words.

Hi, I’m a 25 year old student, mother of one, sister to four, daughter to two and cousin/niece to MANY! Grandchild of some amazingly diverse individuals. I chose very early in my life what kind of person I wanted to be before I realized I was doing it. So here we are…I’ve formerly introduced myself by stature (not the traditional IE: Name, location, etc etc). When you meet someone, that’s only first based knowledge information. Now that you have an understanding of me…can I, of you too? What drives you in the morning? Are you reading this from the comfort of your snugly bedroom, or a public library because home isn’t an option? Let me tell you, I love you. Why? Because you’re here…and you’re human…and you’re probably still reading at this point and that alone shows me you’re either interested or seeking something fruitful.

I will try and remain brief in my words. Answer me this, for those of you with key to life tipsforzipwoes that consist of frivolous things and yet feel you should remove the small amount of consistency in your lives just to “entertain” that frivolous moment, don’t. Preteens, teens, young adults…this is for you. Adults, and elderly too. Grab hold of your life and your choices as though there is nothing better to do. Like it’s your last drop of water after an intense workout and no air. Never allow a person, place, or thing to deter you from your goals. Keep your body, mind and soul free of all things wrong in this world. Free your “book bags” of clutter and old “test sheets” from last quarter/semester that keep you in a backwards motion. When it’s just YOU fighting in defense for a positive belief in growth, development and beneficial change…stand alone but never FEEL alone. I challenge you…all of you. Drop the zero stories of people in your life meant to deprive you of greatness, and the car that never starts on your way to work because you don’t have enough to afford a better one…or the “I’m too scared” to try something new. Stop…Strive…Succeed. There’s only one person riding your bus in this thing we call life. Steer it straight and steady. I hope this has helped in some way.

Who do you want to help today? Peace and blessings….

Until next time…


“Black Friday” -Financial Madness!?

Boy oh Boy oh GIRL! 😮 *giggles*

Black Friday shopping frenzies

“B.F” shoppers…please, please, PLEASE! This year be CAREFUL for a number of reasons!! Be wise in your spending, surroundings, item purchases, and of course of the little ones that MAY be out shopping as well with their parents. I truly hope they stay in this year, because I know this is the time of year in which people get stomped on in the aisles. (Lol) Well now and of course around Christmas. [Haha]

  • Avoid irritable looking shoppers (they’re careless & will knock you over) LOL!
  • Don’t allow the sales person to “over sell you” on flashy items! 
  • Do your homework on bargains at different stores for particular items
  • Never buy what you don’t need (black friday or not) haha
  • Never be too shy to check clearance racks

Since we’re talking shopping you know I have to discuss Tripleclicks. I wouldn’t be true to myself if I didn’t [Haha]. If you’re big on stylish jewelry for amazing prices, “Leahs Gifts” store is the place to go for sure! I’ve ordered from her a few times and o.m.g, the compliments would not stop coming from friends and family. Check her out and surely you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. The wedding rings especially, oh man. Sometimes she leaves little surprises with your order 😉 . Got to love that! 

Enjoy the  shopping madness everyone and save yourself the hassle, sleep in and order a few things online. Tons of places to choose from! ^_^

How to Wear a Saree (Sari)

How to wear a Sari?

Sorry…I was typing too loud. 🙂 Greetings fellow on lookers! :-p   A request was made by a good friend of mine and I thought…hey why not? [Lol] Personally, I feel the garments are absolutely beautiful! I really love the variety in color, texture, and style! Cultures are a wonderful thing that I respect and adore so much. So on that note, today I will be sharing something I learned in 12 simple steps. ^_^    

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Step 1:

Be sure to have a fitted shirt of some sort for underneath. The heels/shoes you wear play a big role in how the saree falls, and how ever much coverage you may want or need. Hold the inner end of the saree with your left hand.

Step 2:

Making sure the saree is at floor level, tuck the top border of the inner end into the petticoat.

Step 3:

Then pass the saree around to the front maintaining the same height.

Step 4:

Keep the top edge leveled and tuck it in a little to keep the saree firm.

Step 5:

Start folding the pleats from the right holding, then tuck the edge of the saree.

Step 6:

Hold the pleats together and adjust the height so that the bottom edge is at floor level.

Step 7:

Tuck the pleats into the petticoat. The pleats should fall straight.

Step 8:

Bring the saree around.

Step 9:

Hold it in your right hand and pass it to your left, arranging the border evenly.

Step 10-11:

Repeat step 9.

Step 12:

Drape on your left shoulder allowing the end piece to fall casually.
