11310215 Be Courageous!

                The world has been shrouded in fear as of lately. People fear living their lives, their health and their safety. All of these fears can be extremely detrimental to our health. To combat all of the negativity and random acts of violence it is essential to be courage and live your life on your terms. Living courageously defies the enemy because you are exuding positivity and resiliency in every breath you take. Positive change takes courage because most people view change in the negative. Change is seen as loss; however, there is positive change out here too. Being courageous is the embodiment of positive change.

Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Destiny Book Review

T.D. Jakes’ Destiny book is supposed to take off where Instinct left off but Destiny did more than that. Destiny supplied the blueprint towards taking full advantage of the window of opportunity is still open. My favorite part of the book is surviving the horror movie. Oftentimes in life, when you grow your former crew, they become zombies trying to repossess your soul and kill your dreams. I identify with this in my life. It can look like the Michael Jackson Thriller music video.

Bishop Jakes also discusses what happens after the horror movie and very few people delve into this transitional period once your destiny is realized. Jakes understands that the reader needs new skills to adapt to this new environment. His book Destiny masterfully guides you through the paradigm shift towards fulfilling you.

This Week in Positive Change Management: Contingency Plans and Response Strategies

Life has thrown me some curveballs as of lately. The two things that I’ve done to dodge the craziness are to have contingency reserves and implement response strategies. My reserves include savings and skill sets. I keep my resume, LinkedIn and network contacts current because you never know what might be in store.

Having contingency reserves aren’t enough to stay afloat. You must have the appropriate contingency response strategies. For instance, say that you’ve polished your resume and received that promotion, now what? Well, this may mean a new wardrobe and maybe a tech upgrade. A new job might require learning new tech applications relevant to the current position. Developing contingency response strategies make the transition easier. Contingency reserves represent plans B through Z. It is hard to operate with these plans and strategies because even with managing positive change, life is hardly linear.
