How have you been spending your quarantine? If you find yourself with extra free time it’s so easy to find yourself watching episode after episode of the latest show. 😳 I’ll be the first to admit, I enjoy time watching my favorite movies or checking out a new show but I also make sure I’m prioritizing time to stay committed to my goals! 💪🏻
This is the perfect opportunity to commit to your health goals! ⭐️ Remember all the times you pushed them off by saying, “... when I have the time”. Right now is that time! I challenge you to show up for yourself daily and prioritize your health using this extra time that you have right now!❤️
Do you have specific health goals? Are you ready to commit this time to start showing up for yourself? 🙋🏼♀️ I can help you set your goals, set up an action plan, and keep you accountable! DM me if you would like to get started today! 🎉
Also if they put you on fmla it's to pay u less and avoid a ding on their insurance rates bc they fear they'll go up. She said "we deny all unemployment claims, that's standard." Ain't that some sh!!? These ppl r so sneaky + do not care abt u. #corporateAmerica
Don’t ever forget that YOU BELONG.
Cause last night, when I went to the Harvard Club for a networking event, i almost forgot that.
Besides the fact that networking events have never felt natural to me, when I was getting there, the pesky ole imposter syndrome started flaring up again. 🥵
Here were just some of my thoughts:
💭Everyone in there is going to be legit. I’m just a coach.
💭They’re probably gonna judge me cause my beard is so long.
💭 I’m gonna be so awkward. Maybe I should just go home.
Honestly, just a bunch of utter nonsense cause I’m actually really good with people and know that ultimately... no one’s even concerned about me. 🤦🏾♂️ Nonetheless, it bugged me that these thought patterns came up.
I thought I’d be over it by now, especially after all of the successes I’ve had in life and personal growth work I’ve done.
But the truth is, it takes time to undo the disempowering subconscious beliefs that you’ve been following all your life.
So I took it as an opportunity to practice showing up confidently in spite of whatever my mind was doing in the background.
So I show up in this room full of entrepreneurs, programmers, consultants, bankers, etc... and I don’t know anyone.
On top of that, the open bar closes just as I got there... Thank you Universe.🙄 But it’s okay, this just makes things more interesting.
Had a few really awkward conversations to start... but I survived.
Then I have a convo with an architect, and we talk about what we do, and I just refocus myself on how lucky I am to be doing what I do, and the energy is just flowing.
Eventually, we start talking about dreams and passions (... I can’t help myself 🤷🏾♂️), and I made a genuine connection with him.
And the rest of the night kinda goes like this.☺️ If the ole imposter syndrome ever stops you from showing up powerfully in certain spaces in your life, know that it’s just a habit you’ve formed through your lifetime.
And you can form a new habit instead.
So next time try what I do:
✅Take a few deep breaths
✅Decide how you want to BE
✅Then just show up
Fyi, you may have to repeat this a few times... It gets easier though.
Comment “I BELONG” 👇🏾 if you agree!
Gotta thank all my partners across #CorporateAmerica who are working with us. Together we are #AdvancingRacialEquityhttp://savoynetwork.com/barron-witherspoon-leads-pgs-corporate-race-initiative/ …
I suddenly had it up to here with life, where I was and what I was.... I remember crystal clear my daily actions of scrolling Facebook newsfeed saying “I wish I had what she had.” “She is so lucky!” As 🤚 I worked my 9-5 for Corporate America, where I KNEW I didn't belong and I cleaned houses on the weekends because we needed the income but I knew I didn't belong doing that either..... Listen until I was about 29 years old I thought that people who had money or were successful either had the luxury from their parents paying their way or they got lucky and fell above average on the totem pole.
I finally one day found an important piece to the puzzle and something clicked. On this day I DECIDED to leave the path of mediocrity and commit to do small tasks daily to lead my to a life as a high achiever. I was fed up with living my life between failure and survival.
I was always an average child, average in playing sports, average grades and average social skills I had realized that if I wanted to be anything more than average than I would have to work harder and being more persistent. I didn’t just tryout for volleyball and make the team. I had to practice every freakin day to earn my spot on the team. I wasn’t one of those book smart kids who could listen to lecture and ace a test. If I wanted good grades I had to study harder.
It all comes down to the simple actions that I have a choice to make day in and day out.
What actions will you choose to do daily and never make an excuse for them?

Nashville | Southern BBQ • Night life💚
This was my first time in Nashville & I thought it’d be a quiet wholesome place. Wrong, it’s the country’s capital for bachelorette parties. Go to Broadway St. downtown & that’s where night life takes off. The streets are filled with thousands of people bar hopping & kicking it. .
I stayed at the @gaylordhotels. It was beautiful & has 2,888 rooms making it the largest hotel in the country (that doesn’t have a casino). Every restaurant inside had amazing food. The Jack Daniels BBQ restaurant was definitely a favorite of mine. .
If you visit make sure to check out @bartacolife food served family style. These aren’t your basic tacos! .
Also checkout @hattiebs.When I got there a line was wrapped around the building. A good sign when trying a new restaurant! The chicken was delicious, and I know that’s what they’re known for but babyeee their greens were fire! 🔥 . 📸: @therontlogan
Net result of worthless shitty #leadership from the so called “above.” Sooner or later you’ll lose all of the star performers. This I do know.
You might want to take note #CorporateAmerica.
Happy 25th Birthday to this young man! You have made us the happiest parents ever!! So very proud of all the accomplishments you have made in such a short time. Have a wonderful day! Be safe! Love you so much!!
The fact that U keep stating your concerns for #CorporateAmerica when we have thousands of #Americans dying everyday, proves U are a psychopath. If U worried about Americans dying the way U worry about the economy & corporate welfare, there would be a different outcome. Sad-&Sic!
You know, sometimes I write and I wonder who is really listening or paying attention to what God gives me. I realize that sharing my innermost thoughts makes me vulnerable in a way. But the truth is will I ever meet any of you really?
These are the thoughts that run thru my mind sometimes. And I along with you all wonder if I am really relevant. Like if what I say has REAL meaning to any of you? I know... tough questions as we spend a seemingly good deal of time by ourselves right now through this virus that has hit America and the World! But God!
One thing I know for sure (thanks Oprah) is that I am loved by the Father and so are you! I know you and I may be so tempted to doubt our place in this world since we are quaranteened or should be. I know its getting warmer out and we may all want to go to the park and play around or go for long drives, bowl or skate.
But this is the time to honor government. To honor our Pastors and stay put. Stay at home and stay safe cuz outside around people its NOT safe even though the sunshine is deceiving right now.
Jesus said to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's and unto God that which is God's. (Mark 12:16-17). Meaning to honor the government's laws and honor God's laws too. When they contradict though, honor God's of course.
I am RIGHT HERE WITH YOU TOO! Yep, praying, believing, watching, and taking care of me as you take care of you! Stay safe, stay prayerful, stay happy, stay golden! Do the will of God so you can live to FIGHT another day, alright?
Don't put yourself in unnecessary danger or peril. God still has a plan for you and of course He is NOT done with you yet. Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and NOT to harm you. Plans to prosper you and to give you hope!" Stay encouraged my friends! Laugh when something is funny. Dance and rejoice when the good happens. Love fully right now.
Man, I love me some of yall! Hugs!❤️ Breathe, Bless, Brake!😇
Psalm 1 Chic!😎#psalm1chic
Kinda fascist that all the corporate 'mrica shops like drunkin donuts, blumpies 7-11-01 etc. are open while the mom and pop, china houses are enforced to be closed. #fascism2020#corporateamerica#takeover .
My comics are not influenced by that thought tho.
Kick open that door and speak up! When people ask me what I think about #LatinaEqualPayDay: No, we don't deserve less because of their poor judgment, we deserve what we are worth for bringing an additional language, a bi-cultural branding mindset, and fierce women of color to enrich their company's culture. You are very welcome señor, ahora podemos negociar!"
