BrotherWord - Motivational Monday

Talking about what you want out of life accomplishes very little.  It is perfectly fine to speak those things as if they are, try to will them into existence, but the only way those words ever materialize is if they are followed by actual work.  A wish is only as good as the potential, power, and perseverance it takes to turn that wish into reality.

Do not let the wish, the hope, the dream, be the beginning and end of what it is you are striving towards.  One step forward can catapult that wish and begin the momentum to success.  There are no magical or quick solutions, but earnest work yields results.  Anything worth having is worth working to achieve.  Whatever the dream, make sure it includes a great deal of doing!

At the end of the day, do not let the wish be greater than the work.  It is time to move past panning phase and into the production phase.  Let your will to succeed outweigh the lure of a wishful thought and do whatever it takes to transform the wish into work.  Dream big, work harder!

Yesterday I was enlightened with a profound word from @pastorj_higherd in which he stated, “If you want to change your reality, you have to change your mentality.”  Many times we allow our thoughts to cloud our vision and ultimately, destroy our destiny.  Today, that cycle ends! (more…)

Hi BrotherWord,

I’m in a peculiar situation.  Every woman, including me, dreams about meeting her Prince Charming, being swept off her feet, having a dream wedding, and living happily ever after.  That fairytale sounds nice, but the reality is much different.  No matter what I do or where I look, I have yet to meet Prince Charming and I continue to see my friends’ fairytales turn into horror stories.  Beginning to wonder if marriage is really for me or am doomed to live a life of solitude.

Start each day with a positive attitude; how you think is how you perceive life. ~ BrotherWord

How we perceive our lives is most likely the life we lead.  It is so easy to get caught up in the ailments of the world that we allow those to become our reality.  The truth of the matter is that very few things are as dire as they first appear.  Change your attitude, change your thoughts, change your words and watch how your world changes.  As a man thinketh, so is he.  The more you Think, the more you Thank©, so focus your mind on those things that provide joy and happiness, help progress your hopes and dreams, and fulfill your purpose in life.  Wake each day with a positive mindset, plan on being productive, and looking forward to the vast possibilities each day presents. If you want the most out of life, make the most out of each day.

Managing Expectations


Each year many start with lists of things they want to accomplish and without fail, within the first four weeks, that so-called list implodes.  It is not that the intentions are not genuine and the motivation is lacking, but what it boils down to is managing expectations and deciphering what is plausible and what borders on unrealistic.

Your Dream is only as good as the work you’re willing to put in to bring it from a vision to a reality.  Dreams are great.  They allow us to wonder and fantasize about the unknown, but it’s only when we seize the moment that we truly gain all that is offered.  Dream as big as your mind will allow and work doubly hard to make those dreams come true.  It’s when we see the fruit of our labor that we realize the potential we possess.  #TeamDream
