“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”–Winston Churchill
Courage is where I believe we fail to achieve or overcoming challenges. When challenged in life obstacles can seem overwhelming, insurmountable to stifle our progress. In many occasions, we just give up and fail.
Learning to work through the pain of life is achieved through your own faith that all will work itself out as it should. Learning to accept that life will happen on its own terms. Learning to not push growth, but accept destiny unfolding on its terms. God does not need your help he needs your faith.
God, will unfold your destiny timely when you allow it to unfold naturally. His favor can move the unmovable. When you hold-fast to faith in the face of absolute ruin. On the other side of this faith held strong is destiny!
Look at challenges as the gateway to your life’s destiny. Accept the trials and tribulations with faith, that once you clear the dark forest a beautiful life season is before you. Our lives are seasonal, just as nature. My thought is this to be the natural order of things. How our body and the soul are connected to the seasonal universe.
Stop looking at obstacles as a barb-wire fence. With care, you can cross a barb-wire fence. You may get a poke or scratch here and there. The crossing can be done safely. You arrive at a new destination.
Admittedly, I struggle with faith, but I believe we all are challenged with faith from time-to-time.
The good news. Keep holding onto faith even when you can’t see any hope. The pain you may suffer through pails in comparison to the happiness on the other side. Faith will become easier to summon when you condition yourself.
We tend to lose faith in the precipice of change. If only one step further were taken, don’t let one step more stop you!
Call upon God through prayer and meditation. Thanking him for the end result of the season you find yourself. Focus on the result not the how. God has the how you stay in faith with gratitude that it’s done. Do this and God will make the impossible, possible!
This is my latest eBook. Easy to follow steps to lasting change in your life. Just as the title suggests are you ready? This guide will help you begin a new chapter for your life. Just as I have this is easier than you might think. I help guide you through rocky shoals.
Are You Ready for Hope
A Guide to real change.
Steps you can take right now to change your entire life. Easy to follow steps that you can employ right now.
For most of us we can find something in our lives we need to change. Perhaps even a full life makeover. Whether it’s one thing or several, this guide will help you make lasting change.
This will take work, the strength of mind and commitment. If this cliché is your life; sick and tired of being sick and tired. If this is, you are welcome here.
Last year into this year my own life required me to make many changes. It’s taken some education that I want to share this information with you. This will save you lots of time and heartache. Change has many challenges that come with it. Sadly, many will quit before lasting change can occur.
Let me guide you through these rocky shoals to your new life. It took me at times through incredibly difficult paths, dark moments and simple trial & error before all this made sense. If you follow what you learn here, I trust it will help you further your efforts changing your own life.
It doesn’t matter the reason what is important is the process of change. We will discuss in depth process, actions and results.
Here is a little from the book:
Where to Begin
Coming to a point in life where the outcome thus far is a disaster. If this is you, welcome. I welcome you to the beginning of your new life. Just reading this won’t bring change about. If you want this, it’s going to take some work.
Before we begin. The importance of this one thing cannot be overstated Patience!
“Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.”—Joyce Meyer
Without patience to allow change to occur you will stifle progress. My mother always told me this “it took you fifty years to break your life, give yourself time to change.” She was totally right as most moms are.
Where failure befalls most is the lack of patience to allow change to occur. We live in the “I want it right now society.” Get that out of your head right now. This is where I stumbled hard. Not allowing the universe to set a new course for my life.

This walk we take through life has curves, cliffs, mountains, snow, ice, you name it your mind can put you in a dangerous place. These are the things that we run into in our minds. I love the saying that turmoil is the price of admission for a beautiful life. We all have something to learn from our pain. I don’t like pain any more than you do, but we can work through it.
I remember a scene in Rocky II when Rocky is fighting Apollo Creed. Rocky takes punch after brutal punch, knocked downtime and time again. Rocky stumbles back to his corner face swollen, bleeding seemingly out of steam, and Rocky tells Mickey, “I ain’t going down no more.” He finds his strength out of being beaten down, hit again and again. The power to go on. Not to quit.
The point is if you’re getting your ass kicked by life, it’s time to say “I ain’t going down no more.”
Okay, I hear everyone saying sure easier said than done. You have to ask yourself if you’re saying that “Have I had enough yet?” Say it, say it NOW! Tell the enemy to get out of your head, you ain’t going down no more.
The first thing you have to come to terms with is that enough is enough. NO matter the pain or turmoil in your head. Get to a place in your mind where you can make quite the spirit. The only way I can tell you to do it meditate. You can find free guided meditations on YouTube, put on some headphones on close your eyes, and listen. Feel yourself relaxing. If you have to play it ten times before you begin to feel something, do it.
Here is the trouble you may run into. We’re all I WANT IT NOW people. So what happens is people quit. They stop just at the moment change is going to happen. Successful people will tell you why they’re successful is they’re willing to take one more step than you are. You can’t quit. The enemy will fight you tooth and nail to beat you. Don’t live in your head live in your soul. Your leader will jack you up. Your soul is where love, abundance, and relief live.
Your head will trick you and leave you in a terrible place. Open up your heart, your soul to find real peace. You can do this during meditation, connecting with God, the universe, Devine source, or a higher power. When you join with whom I call God during meditation, a whole new world opens up, “I ain’t going down no more.”
See yourself in meditation, happy, abundant, and living the life dreams are made of. It can happen. Don’t quit too soon. There is NO quick fix. You have to own the pain when you do you hold the world. “Own that Shit”–Harley Quinn. Peace will come during meditation if it takes a little time it will. Let your mind go to God, divine source, you will find peace to hold onto.
Don’t tell yourself it’s too much. NOTHING is too much. Here is a terrible example of pain, the loss of a child. The awful sad truth is life will go on no matter how much we don’t want it to at that moment. Pain is a pain, is a pain. The loss of someone is the most unbelievable pain we can experience. Yet the sun will come up tomorrow. You can’t stop fighting to get out of your tricky situation. You can’t lose faith when there is nothing to hold onto but faith. The hope of change may be all you have right now, take it, own it. Peace is coming, I promise it is.
This is why you have to connect to a Devine source. Sometime’s there is no real answer, especially when we lose something as precious as a loved one. I use this extreme because most problems pale in comparison. If you’re reading this and you have lost a loved one my heart goes out to you. The loss is painful, but it will pass even when you believe it won’t, it will. God be with you.
For most problems, when we’re in the middle of them, the pain can be daunting. So massive we can’t see a way out. I have very recently gone through this. My life is turned upside down, finances are in turmoil, family, the list goes on. The enemy has taken my joy on many days, where I was just a mess. Bulldozing my way through has been a struggle. I have been knocked down time and time again in my own head. It’s not real, it’s the enemy who will try at all costs to keep you down. DO NOT LISTEN!!!
We all hear change is not easy. No, it’s not, but you can do it! I have had days where it’s so black in my head, indeed a dark place no human wants to go.
Never give up. I don’t care how much you think you can’t, I am living proof you can. Get off the canvas, stand up, and fight. You have it in you. I know it in my heart.
