Warrior Wednesday: "Warriors Never Give Up!" ~ Inspired by a Sister's Walk across the Selma Bridge

"Are you a Warrior? Then You Never Give Up!"

Have you ever woken up and felt like a ton of bricks weighing on your chest? Perhaps, you are in a season now where it just seems like all your effort are amounting to nothing and you feel completely overwhelmed and you sometimes wished you could just lay in bed and not get up, hoping your worries will go away with your catatonic self~

Well, NEVER GIVE UP was the phrase at the Selma Walk this past week. And thanks to my Southern Warrior Sister~ Maxine Donaldson Holt who wrote a piece on her personal experience walking across the bridge, we are able to feel the spirit of that day. "NEVER GIVE UP!" What a simple phrase yet powerful in nature if we allow it to soak into our being.

Hello family, IT IS WARRIOR WEDNESDAY and this is your sister welcoming you to yet another
blog episode.

I spent few minutes just reading and re-reading the words of my Southern warrior sister, Maxine and I was inspired to pay it all forward with this piece. This picture is certainly more than any preacher could have said. If you are in a situation right now where many things are not adding up for you...

Employee Engagement and your Companies ROI

An old wives tale insists that happy employees are productive employees. A modern twist to this old metaphor suggests that an engaged employee is a profitable employee. In today’s constant battle of the talent war and rising administrative costs employers cannot afford to have anything less than engaged employees. This is difficult to achieve for what satisfies one employee may not necessarily satisfy the next. The trick then is to ensure that companies have strategies and programs that offer variety of opportunities to stimulate engagement







According to Gallop, Inc., a leading research-based performance-management consulting company, the remaining 70% of U.S. employees are “not engaged” or “actively disengaged.” These people “are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces and less likely to be productive,” reports Gallop. “Currently, 52% of workers are not engaged, and worse, another 18% are actively disengaged in their work. Gallup estimates that these actively disengaged employees cost the U.S. between $450 billion to $550 billion each year in lost productivity.”

Warrior Wednesday: 7 Attributes of “Warriors” which Make Them a “Slam Dunk” Success!

It’s Warrior Wednesday: What are the 7 Attributes of “Warriors “which Make them a “Slam Dunk” Success?

A “Warrior” Knows when to go to war and when to be still for the battle to be won! Do You?
I woke up this morning with the word “Warrior” on my mind and try to imagine what the word really means. A warrior is “a brave or experienced soldier or fighter.”  When you go by this definition, then you know naturally that there will be some wars/battles which you will engage in.

But being a “warrior” does not entail being in a battle alone.  On the other hand, there are many times we desperately want to avoid confrontations and battles all for the sake of peace and harmony. This may be at our own peril! As there are just some battles we must fight and win if we must move to our next success level.

“We will not win a battle, neither will be succeed at anything if we are passive aggressive in our relationships, or adopt a passive aggressive pose when we choose to do things our own way and not pay attention to all the hurdles life is placing in our path.”

A True Warrior understands that Passive Aggressiveness is a Poison, which if allowed to fester in his or her life will cause great frustration, self pity-party, and so much pain!

      “Adapt the Heart of a True Warrior in Everything You Do and You Will Soar Like an Eagle.”

Being “Warrior spirited” reflects someone who maintains an honorable place amongst his or her peers.  When you are a true warrior, you exercise “insight” to things which pertain to life. Without “insight”, anyone including those who may choose to be called warriors will “miss their lifeboat.” And the truth be told, we need the warrior spirit to survive many of the obstacles that life often throws our way.

                                                       “Live Your Life Like a Warrior”

The following are the true attributes of a warrior:
(1). A True warrior listens!
(2). A True warrior respects him/herself and others around them
(3). A True Warrior is Submissive and Attentive
(4). A True Warrior is Humble
(5). A True Warrior Learns to Serve Others without any Hidden Agenda
(6). A True Warrior Tells the Truth
(7). A True Warrior Discerns Seasons and walk that path

It really doesn’t matter what type of warrior you are, be it Spiritual Warrior, Wisdom Warrior; as a warrior , you must understand things as they are and just rest in the process. As a warrior, you are constantly on the fence, praying, watching on behalf of others or yourself. You are ready for war, if it comes to your door step, but most importantly, YOU ARE PREPARED!

Preparation takes time, effort, diligence, commitment, dedication, self-less attitude and most of all, patience.

Above all, a TRUE WARRIOR confronts issues head on and understand the need to have a group of other warriors around him or her, to maneuver through life. “No man is an island.” When you find yourself in a place where you believe you must do things alone… when others do not matter to you and you begin to adapt the spirit or mentality of a “lone ranger,” know that you are on a path of destruction.

What do you do when you discover you are no longer adapting the TRUE Warrior Spirit?
(1). Turn back and trace your steps back!
(2). Surrender
(3). Be Patient
(4). Be Still
(5). Reach out to others who have been there and can help you
(6). Listen! Listen! Listen!

It is Monday morning or Tuesday or Wednesday and your alarm clock ticktock its way into your dreamland...time to get up and be ready for work. Yet, you lay in that bed looking at the clock, wishing that the time would just turn back because the truth be told, you really do not want to go to that place of work.
Welcome aboard the boredom ship! You are not alone! "Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.” ― Zig Ziglar
If you hate your job, you are not alone! In 2013, Forbes released results of employee polls, which they did worldwide. According to the Gallup reports released that year, there are twice as many “actively disengaged” workers in the world as there are “engaged” workers who love their jobs. When they polled 25 million employees in 189 in different countries, 13 % of the workers feel engaged by their jobs! They defined “feeling engage” as having a sense of passion for their work, a deep connection to their employer, and as such spend their days driving innovation to move the company forward. 63% are “not engaged”, meaning they are unhappy but not drastically so. They regarded themselves as “checked out” and sleep walk through their days, and putting little energy into their work. In addition, 87% of workers worldwide who are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces are less likely to be productive (Forbes.com).
Are you part of the statistics who hate their job? Then check this out.

3 “Must Avoid” Ways You Are Sabotaging Your Own Success by African Oscar Winning Storyteller

Welcome to Warrior Wednesday: There is incredible power in our tongues.  There are many ways we can sabotage our own success but through it all, there are 3 “must avoid” ways we must be aware of.
I have often been told especially by my parents to watch what I say, so not to invite “trouble” into my life. And as many times as I have heard them say it, I have defied them until….Listen Here

On this blog/ podcast, you will find out the 3 Ways you are sabotaging your own success. And perhaps you will take heed to avoid them, so your success can finally be unleashed. regardless of the type of success you are seeking, whether you are a professional, or a business owner; we all desire to SUCCEED!

I have had the privilege of mentoring many. And throughout my mentoring, there are certain habits which hold true to those who discovered that they are self sabotaging.




Here are the 3 Ways:
(1) Using hurtful and self-defeating words against our own destiny/ life journey will only lead you to exactly what you said!
If you are constantly saying that you will never make it, well, do not be surprised if you indeed “never make it in life!” While it is real that we are struggling on a daily basis, it is important that we do not add more “drama” to what we are already going through with the words of our mouth.
What happens when you speak evil on your own self?
You relinquish your power! And allow the negative forces around you to take over your life!

(2) Being prideful and haughty are fruits of self-sabotage.
When you are constantly thinking you are the only one with the answers; when you look down on others, even in your own unstable condition; all you are doing is destroying your own ability to prosper or succeed.

Why? You are spending more time digging into other people’s’ business and not spending enough time understanding what may be going on in your own circumstances.

(3) Not listening to advice will only lead you on a road to self-sabotage! There is wisdom in a multitude of strong mentors advising you. And like the common saying “No man is an island”. You have spent all these years trying to do things your own way. Perhaps, it is now time to “fess up”, remove the veil/mask and let others in to help you.
        “You have a Choice with our Own Words: To Speak Life or Death! It is up to you what you choose. Choose wisely, so you can move forward in what you are created to be.”
~ Dr. Princess Fumi S. Hancock, RN Live Your Passion without Going Broke

We must be careful to say what we mean, when we mean it and be careful to use words that will empower us and others around us. Regardless of what we may be going through in life, it is essential that we are mindful of our surroundings and learn to be the best we can, do the best we can, and allow words to heal rather than cause pain on ourselves and others around us.

Here is my question for you today~ What ways have you used hurtful words against yourself or others? Share your answers with me on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
