Don’t Try To Change People

Dr. J

Are you living your life trying to change people to be who you want them to be?  Why do we do that?  To be honest with you, I think I do that a lot of times.  I really did that mostly when I was young and seeking the consent of others. As I look back into my life, I can recall some relationships that I really thought was great for me to have.  I just did not like the habits of some of those people.  I tried to change them and, you know what?  Some of them changed to please me.  My grandmother read more

Who’s Opinion Is It?

Don't let Somebody else's Opinion of You Become Your Reality
Don’t Let Somebody Else’s Opinion of You Become Your Reality

I remember when I was growing up in Jamaica people told me what I would be.  It was not a lot.  Trust me.  Based on the circumstances, the environment, and the people, I believed that they knew exactly what they said.  After all, that was all I knew.  Their opinions were the ones that mattered then.  As I agree older, and started experiencing self actualization, I realized that they had their opinions and I had mine.  Life throws us challenges, yet we grow, and as we grow, we have to make read more

Music From Garbage – Paraguay

Can music really come from garbage.  Yes!  During my visit to Paraguay I was introduced to these amazing children who can make you dance to the great tunes of music made from garbage.  These instruments are made from sardines can, forks, spoons, bottle cap covers, foil paper, plates, and so much more.  You name the garbage, they can make an instrument.  This was one the most shocking time of my life and I should say most amazing.  The children in Paraguay makes music from the garbage that read more

Run Your Race and Win

Run Your Race and Win

Are you persistent in achieving what you want.  Maybe sometimes?  Maybe when you want a specific thing?  Have you ever really thought about that?  How Persistent we are can be the starting point of who we really are.  In my world of cultivating environments and getting people to understand their greatness, I find that Persistence is key.  Napoleon Hill makes it clear in his book, Think and Grow Rich and had laid out some realities.

Happy New Year 2016 - Will-Power and Desire

Happy New Year 2016 – Will-Power and Desire

Yesterday ended last night.  Well, we can truly say that it was a blessing to have gone through 2015.  So many people did not make it.  Some made it but cannot really tell if they did.  Some made it  and wish they had made better decisions, probably did some things differently, and some can tell stories about all their accomplishments.  Whether you fall into any of those categories, it does not matter now.  What matters is that you made it through 2015 and 2016 is another chance to do read more

Little Things Mean A Lot

Little Things Mean A Lot

Little things matter. Over and over I see people worried about the wrong things. People get so worked up, mess up relationships, and lose the opportunity to live a satisfying life.
I am constantly amazed at how paying attention to little things can make or break a family, a business, a church or even a nation. For example, prior to 9/11 very little attention was paid to the items people took on an airplane with them. Now, however, total attention is paid to that aspect of air travel.  Dr. read more

Rejection Drives Success

Rejection Drives Success

We all hit moments when we feel helpless. I do sometimes.  The test is how we react to that feeling. We can either learn from it and move forward or let it drag us down.  I remember the days when I felt helpless in Jamaica.  I thought that a better life was impossible.  As a young girl, there were days when I would rather be dead.   I had conversations with God, asking ?Why??  I could not understand why my life was the way it was.  One day, after some deep thinking I started read more

Undeniable Facts of Life

I received these words from my sister  friend Yvonne Chaplin today.  They make so much sense and  I am sure we can personalize them with the lives we are living now.  So often we get caught up in the niceties of the the world.  Yes! we want so much.  That is true of all of us.  I believe we are the best gifts to each other.  Stay tune to your inner beliefs.  We become what we think.

As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a
$300. or $30.00 watch, they both read more

A Small Decision Can Transform Your Life

A pleasant hello

Do you ever feel that, despite personal success in some areas, your life doesn’t have the meaning that you want it to have? Do you feel you have much more to give, but just don’t know where to start?

You are not alone.

As human beings, we all have a deeply-felt need to make a difference in the lives of others.
And we know instinctively that making that difference will feel pretty good. Actually, we know it will feel great. The problem is that many of us believe making read more
