Don't Worry About A Thing!

Good Morning Subscribers,

Don't worry about a thing!

..'Cause every little thing gonna be all right! 

When I was 13 years old, my parents were going through a pretty rough time that eventually led to a divorce. For some reason, I endured a lot of their issues which took a toll on me, stress wise. I'm grateful that I had my Aunt as a sounding board during this time who introduced me to a more spiritual way of dealing with my issues at home. She gave me a bible verse that I have ingrained in me to this day.


"Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human man can understand."
- Philippians 4:6

At 13, I didn't realize how much this verse would help me and humble me in the future. One thing that going through trials and tribulations taught me, is to always believe that good things are going to happenNever second guess the effect that a positive mindset can have on your overall well-being. 

When you pray and worry at the same time your actions ultimately contradict your mindset. Stop worrying about how the story ends, and I promise you things will start happening. Learning to let go of things that are out of your control isn't easy, but it's so worth it.

What's Your Why?

When you wake up in the morning – What drives you? Why do you continue to do what you do? Why do you put in all those late nights and early mornings?
Your why might be for your family. It could be for a better life, the satisfaction of helping or inspiring others or buying a new home or car. Whatever your why may be, continue to hold on to it, and never let it go no matter what the world may throw at you.
Knowing and recognizing your why will be the driving force that you will need to keep you focused through times of adversity. Every time I begin to question a tough task or even face a disappointment, I consistently remind myself as to why I started it in the first place. Many times, we begin to think more about the frustration of the actual task more than remembering our purpose for starting the undertaking in the first place. Recognizing your purpose and understanding your why will give you the grit that is needed to sustain your motivation.
Keep asking yourself the why questions: why am I doing this? What’s my goal? What’s my purpose? Will the result benefit me or someone else? These are critical questions that we must continue to ask ourselves to give us the encouragement that we need to overcome tough challenges. Is your why to become a successful business owner? Is your why to graduate? Is your why to inspire the next generation behind you? Is your why to encourage or inspire your little brothers or sisters? Is your why to make your parents proud? Is your why to help your community? Is your why for your son or daughter?
Whatever your why may be, do everything in your power to never let it go! Your why may be the very life vest that will keep you afloat when faced with rejection, disappointment, and failure. Keep grinding, maintain your tunnel vision, and continue to remember your why.
