Perception based on preconceived notions can delay ascension to another plane. Remember this; objects in a dark room form into monsters in the eyes of the young.
Do not allow your progress to be hindered by anything unfounded! Move around any legitimate barriers and keep ascending!
Opportunity is like water running freely from an opened faucet valve; just put in the work to turn the handle and watch the results.

Waiting at the departure gate for an important flight to take off can be a pain when you get a notification that your flight is delayed. “I can’t afford to be late” many will say.
Although your arrival over yonder may be important, your flight can be delayed for many reasons. Without this delay, your flight might have NEVER made it to its destination!
He that knows a need is present, puts in the work necessary to fill that need; otherwise he will remain in need.
Let’s take a quick lesson from the eagle. They know that a nest is needed before the female can lay her eggs. Sticks and branches are gathered and fashioned to build a nest that could exceed 6ft wide and 3ft high.
The eagle won’t sit around and wait for a nest to be built for them. They prepare and get things done since there is a need.
Wisdom precedes and is necessary to maintain success. However, many devalue the package wisdom arrives in and miss the guidance needed to get to the next level.

Seeking wisdom from an unreliable source is the equivalent of asking an infant how to fix a car; it will result in a few blinks and cooing at best.
Always pay attention to the source!

Find the lesson in the mistake and carry that instead of the guilt.

The eyes have taught man one of the greatest lessons there is to learn in life. What lesson?
When darkness falls upon a room, the eyes adjust to the surrounding conditions. It may take a second, but they will adjust and keep doing what they do.
Never try to force your way in any door; if you had a shot this is the quickest way to kill it.
Doors that are meant to open for you will open in its time; You just keep pushing!
Looking to take your life to the next level, but you fear change? This is more common than you think. However, take this advice; get help and fast.
Why? Hitting the snooze button on the alarm too many times will cause you to miss your appointment.
Every listening ear should not be fed with your plans to succeed. Why? Some are like the bull shark; when opportunity presents itself they eat other sharks.
Think about it!💡🤔 💭
Once you evict credibility from your residence, faith in your word goes with it. If you are looking to make any progress professionally or in life, don’t make this mistake.
Information intake effects the mind just as food intake effects the body. What you allow inside will determine your health and output.
Choose to intake those things that will benefit you in a positive way; your future depends on it. 💡
There is a difference between seeing and seeing. You will not see the heights you will reach in life immediately; you have to see it.
If you don’t see it, you’ll never see it! I encourage you to look past what you can see! Can you see it?
Think about it and read it again! 💡
No matter what you are trying to achieve, you must put in work! There is no 5 minute formula to success no matter how good it’s made to look or sound!
Don’t fall for it!
When you are making an impact, there is no need to shine a light on yourself. The fruit of your labor will reveal itself in time. Keep laboring!
Due to ill treatment from others, many lock themselves in chains and place barriers in their path that don’t exist in reality. “I can’t do this because they said I’m unworthy”; some say. 😩
Your future is not determined by what others think of you! FORGET WHAT A NAYSAYER HAS TO SAY! Many times they fear that you will wake up and see your potential!
Kurtis says WAKE UP; NOW!
As a #jobseeker and in business many tend to worry about the way things look “at the moment”.
If we spend our time worrying, when will we have time to act so the situation can change in the coming days?
When you truly put your heart into what you do, it shows. I encourage you to give “it” your best shot! Regardless of the turnout, you won’t regret the fruit your efforts will bear.
So you want to be a game changer? You will NOT have it easy! You must be as relentless as a storm chaser.
Run into the heart of the storm despite its severity, experience the powerful lesson that the storm will teach, and claim victory when the sun shines. 🌪🌤
If you are a leader and you see your team members suffering, it’s time for you to get on the frontline and get your hands dirty.
He who abhors working on the frontline because it’s above him, and would watch the team suffer is not a leader but a hard task master.
Get off your “throne” and lift your team up!
Where discord lays it’s head, execute a solution to dismiss it or dismiss yourself. You have a right to peace of mind!
Just because the vehicle of discord has a smiling face, don’t be deceived! You have a right to deny all defective packages!
ROI is not only important in business! It is equally as important in your personal life. What you invest your time in matters! Make sure each time investment you make brings a hefty return.
If it doesn’t, you have some decisions to make.
A snobbish attitude is a quick way to get a reality check. If you allow this way of thinking to overtake you, don’t be surprised if you are served a taste of your own medicine.
A sign at a busy intersection alerts a pedestrian with a warning ⚠️ ; Don’t Walk! 🛑 ✋🚶
He or she must heed this warning because bad things can happen if they don’t. Apply this message another way; to your professional life.
My name is Time. Use me wisely; you don’t know how long you have me.
As a child that was only a few months old, we couldn’t walk on our own. We tried but failed; sometimes in a big way. We would eventually be able to do it on our own, but we just needed someone to guide us.
In life we encounter situations where we need guidance to get to the next level. Humble yourself like a baby does and be teachable! Later down the line you will see yourself “walking” with no problems!
There is nothing wrong with knowing your worth. Nothing wrong with being self-confident. Nothing wrong with speaking about your accomplishments with excitement!
However, there is a fine line between these things and thinking everyone else is inferior to you.
Don’t stand for something you know in your heart is wrong just to keep a job. Yes, money may be coming in but what about the people you may be hurting? Is it worth it?
Sometimes we have an idea to make things better and we #take a step back from putting it out there because we believe we have nothing valuable to give.
“Everything out there is already perfect!” some say.
What if Walter Linderer and John W. Hetrick felt that way about adding an airbag to the automobile? If the opportunity presents itself, put your idea out there! You never know what will come from it!
Also keep in mind that you may have to make an opportunity for yourself!
🗣🎙STOP HOLDING BACK! ☝🏾
Your efforts matter no matter how much you have to go through; keep pushing!
A source of positivity and strength for a sad spirited individual is like water to a plant or tree; continual nourishment will result in strong growth!
When clients place their trust in you, maintaining confidentiality is a must! If you betray the trust of your clients; your business will not stand for long.
The tools to achieve greatness can be given to us. However, there is one thing that we have to possess for ourselves; a strong desire to achieve greatness. Without a STRONG desire, those tools can’t do anything for us.
Seek not to please others with the decisions you make that will impact YOU. If you make everyone else happy and neglect self, misery and depression will run to fill that empty space you allowed to form.
Sometimes we become wrapped up in all of the knowledge we’ve acquired in our respective fields, to the point where some think knowledge stops with them. 🤔
Don’t forget that you learned all that you know and things will constantly change. Knowledge does not, nor will it ever stop with anyone!
Keep this in mind; there are things that are meant to happen and there are things that will only happen if you make a move. Don’t just sit back saying “if it’s meant it will be”’.
Some of us will wait too long and what could have been will pass us by! YOUR MOVE! ♟
