This book is inspired by the daily struggles people face throughout life. The lessons provided in this informational and inspirational piece will encourage good habits while disposing bad ones. They will also offer a systematic approach to eliminating or smoothing out the rough edges that appear to cause blockages and other distractions hindering one’s success. Part one, Trinity of Life, explains the three most influential factors shaping one’s life: faith, family, and friends. Faith, family, and friends correlate to the brain, heart, and spine. Faith is like a brain because it affects one’s thought process and decision making. Family is like a spine because it provides the backbone support one may need to fall back on. Friendship is a like a heart because it pumps blood through the many vessels in life that keep one feeling youthful, fascinating, and fabulous!
Part two, Challenge of Change, gives a roadmap to success, while including the necessary changes one should make in order to build the foundation for success. Success can encompass many aspects of life, not just money. Success is simply a confirmation of order. Where there is no order, there is no success. Once one has made the appropriate adjustments to his or her attitude, career objectives, finances, acquaintances, and lifestyle; then success has been achieved. Consequently, the next time one says, “I’m good”, he or she will actually mean it.
In short, I'm a work of ART (Ability, Responsibility, & Tranquility). My goal is to Attract, Retain, and Teach an audience between the ages of 14 to about 50 and beyond the disciplines of life. I've been blessed with the gift of giving knowledge and creating peace within the souls of many who are starving for spiritual satisfaction. I'm no prophet, but I do believe that I am one of God's chosen spiritual leaders and sources of information on how to walk a straight path down a crooked road.
Battles with my own attitude inspired me to touch on this topic. A bad attitude can block blessings, stir up dissension, and ruin relationships.
Sometimes, one may not realize that he or she has a bad attitude because after a while, it just comes naturally. I was so used to snapping off and blowing fuses every time something did not go my way that I saw no harm in my actions. I felt as though my frustration and discontentment with life justified my behavior.
When told I had a bad attitude, I did not like hearing it, but it did make me think about the validity of the accusation. Hence, I decided to do a self-assessment of my behavior. The assessment part was feasible, but the transitional change was a bit challenging.
If you admit that you have a bad attitude and are willing to change it, you are a work in progress. However, if you accept your negative behavior but want others to see you in a positive light when it fits, you are fake.
If you are going to reject the need for change yet put on a facade, do not deliver your package of poison without a warning label.
When your attitude stinks, so does everything else. You can’t smell petunias in a bed full of dead rats, but you can surely smell a dead rat in a bed of petunias. How can you say, “I’m good” when everything about you is bad? That’s an oxymoron! When you start being honest with yourself, then you can be honest with others. The untold truth about oneself is how the impression of the word “fake” was born.
