You keep going to a job you hate, doing work that doesn't interest you and working towards a career that you are not even remotely passionate about!
You keep spending money you don't have on things you don't really want or care for and wonder why you are in the position you are currently in.
You have a lazy attitude when it comes to your health and you keep over eating and only exercise when you need to squeeze into that dress for someone's wedding...then you wonder why you don't have the energy to work on your dreams, goals and yourself!
You are more interested in being entertained than learning, growing & developing as a person so you waste your time playing candy crush and watching the latest TV series at night rather than reading books that will change your life or working on your blue print for success, joy and fulfilment!
Please Don't be surprised or disappointed if your dreams don't ever come true!
They simply can't come true because you keep doing the same things that everyone else does and you think for some strange reason the outcome of your life will be different...
I'm here to tell you it won't be different if you keep following everyone else and Keep doing what you have been doing up to this point in your life!
Unless you can start to think differently and change yourself and your life your dreams are unlikely to ever come true.....It is up to you to change yourself and your actions, habits, attitude, beliefs and values so that you can create the life and results you want!
Happy Monday!! This week I'm going to focus on lessons learned from a failed business. Lesson #1 - Set a budget for the year and follow through. Stop running your business blind. Money in a money out is easy to lose track of.
Don't let the bullshit actions of other people get you down 👍! In business there WILL BE people whose moral compass is so severely jacked that they walk in this lifetime taking advantage and manipulating people.
Just know to trust your instincts. If your gut says, don't trust this person and your spidey senses are off the charts...WALK AWAY!
If I had regret, it would be failing to TRUST MY INSTINCTS😉! When you start out in business, seek advice from other business owners. Read books, know what to look out for, build a solid foundation of knowing when to say NO, even when things look really good, but intuitively, you KNOW it's not!
Be bold, be badass and move on when you meet one of these physiological vampires😈! Now get your HUSTLE on and ROCK your Monday 👊🏻!

Question: What kind of legacy do you want to leave on the residents of OKC or on the coffee culture, or both? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"I really would like to encourage the coffee community in Oklahoma City to be conscious that there are people in our community that are being oppressed, and there are people in our community that are oppressing, and we should be able to stand together for our neighbors, and like name people who are being hurtful and comfort people who are being hurt. It’s not about politics - it’s about respecting people. You can claim that it’s about politics, and that’s fine, but what we’re saying is that this is a safe space where people are respected, and if you’re going to lean into that, you don’t have a seat at this table. I think, legacy wise, that’s my goal for this community."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It's Monday, once again. Everyone in the office is on high guard. Everyone is receiving their list of assignments to further the bosses goals...you better do them right...or else! Having been working for myself since 2012, Monday's are not quite the same as they used to be. I sit down Monday and create my task list, to reach MY goals, not some rubber stamper in an ivory tower. If you are tired of the 9 to 5 grind, there are plenty of opportunities out there to make money, on your own. I have been fortunate in that sense; I hope if you have the desire, that you are too. Check out the link in my bio for one idea.
I was on the phone with one of my sisters and team members this morning and she said, "God said, the max" as she was talking in general. Immediately Holy Spirit spoke to me! My God! We keep settling for less because we don't believe He can and will give us His maximum! Please know and believe that He wants to give you the max this season! God can do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask or think in every area of your life. You want to settle for the kind of relationship that has you stressed, depressed, sad, lonely and endangered because your mate is sleeping around will all kinds of people. Your mate is abusing you. God said, "The Max!" You're settling in friendships with people who aren't equally yoked with you and can't see where you're going! So every conversation is a struggle that leaves you defeated and depleted! God said, "The Max!" You're settling for something small because something big is too much or too good to be true! God said, "The Max!" Trust God. Seek Him above anyone and anything. Share Yeshua without fear. Watch God do "The Max" for you, in you, and through you! #online#onlinestore#instagram#instashop#christianwomen#jesusgirl#givemejesus#womenofgod#womenintheword#womenoftheword#proverbs31woman#business#businessman#businessowner#businesswoman#entrepreneurship#entrepreneur#god#jesus#jesuschrist#holy#holyspirit#spirit#spiritual
