Today's blog is very personal.  I am going to speak from my own personal experience.  It seems with every step I take, doubt creeps in, in some way, shape or form.

With every gain or accomplishment, doubt and worry rears its ugly head.  Lately I have been combatting and conquering fear and doubt by reminding myself of what my goals and dreams are.  Most importanly I repeat positive affirmations.

When I begin to doubt my finances or where my tenants will come from I remind myself of my affirmations I began saying before purchasing my building:

  • Money is forever circulating freely in my life and there is always a divine surplus
  • I have access to more money than I can keep flowing in the Real Estate Market
  • All of my properties are fully occupied, money generating cash flowing assets!
The importance of these affirmations? First and foremost is to take my mind off of doubt and worry as I have learned we have the ability to create our lives.  We create our lives with our thoughts, words, and actions.  So, instead of giving into fear, doubt, and worry I speak my affirmations.

Affirmations and positive intent are most effective when there is emotion attached to it.  What I've started to do is when I am experience any intense emotion, I think on positive things, and speak positive affirmations.  If only to say "life is good, all is well." 

So, with every step, I encourage you to stay motivated, positive, encouraged and only focus on what you want.  This could be with your finances, business, relationship, education, family, etc.  Whatever it is that you are going through and facing when feeling that deep intense emotion, only focus on what you want.

And with every step, have the faith, even when you can't see the next step, continue moving forward knowing that it is there.

Be blessed and be a blessing.

Namaste, Peace, Love, Joy, Abundance, Health and Vitality to ALL

Rule 7: Stay informed about your investments

Don’t mistake taking a risk with being dumb.

A smart risk may be investing in an emerging market fund. A dumb move may be pouring your life savings into a speculative currency.

How do you know the difference? By researching available investments, weighing your options and selecting the amount of risk that works for your unique situation. For example, those nearing retirement age may want to minimize their level of risk, while recent college grads can be more daring because time is on their side. (

First things first, invest.  It is important to have multiple streams of income and to plan for retirement.  Who wants to HAVE to work in their old age? Choosing to work is one thing but having to work for someone else :/.  You need to be the expert or at least knowledgeable in your endeavors.  Every book store has a book on almost any topic for "dummies."

The time you take to get educated is the money you will save in the future!

Take the leap and just do it.  You don't have to know how everything will work, you don't need to know all the necessary steps involved, take the leap.

Now this is not to say don't plan, research, and have a basic understanding of what you are attempting to do.  This is to say, many of us plan too much, we feel like we have to know everything, all has to be perfect before we take the first step and that is when many get paralyzed with fear and the what ifs of life.

Or that is simply where many don't necessarily give up yet they never move forward because they are waiting on the perfect moment to TAKE THE LEAP.

What we realize is, the perfect moment never comes.


  • Go back to school
  • Start a business
  • Take that trip
  • Get on the airplane
  • Have the children
  • Get married.....
Whatever it is you so desire to do, take the leap.  One of the best things that you can do is connect with others whom have taken the leap as well!

Rule 6: Take a little risk
You could put all your money in bonds and sleep well at night knowing you’ll probably never lose any of your money. But with that approach, you’re not going to retire a millionaire either.
Stocks and real estate are where the money is to be made, but then there is always the risk of a housing bubble bursting or the market crashing. Take heart, though, in knowing that stocks and real estate have historically appreciated in the long run. 

No risk, no reward.  Little risk, little reward.  Big risk, big reward.

It is alright to take a risk.  It is alright to take a risk and fail.  Success without failure is rarely known. Success without setbacks is rarely known.  Few people are successful in all their endeavors, nevertheless, they dust themselves back off and start again and take another risk.

Its like learning how to ride a bike.  If your child falls off and wants to quit, you encourage them to keep trying.  If they fall off 10 or 50 times you encourage them to keep going.  Why? Because you know they will eventually get it, be successful and ride the back with ease!

With all of my spiritual background, belief in positivity, controlling and being mindful of thoughts, energy, frequency and vibration, I recognize, well at least for me that fear seems to creep in.  Now do I completely become paralyzed and give into fear? Absolutely not, nevertheless, I am now working on ways and tools to effectively manage fear.

Have you ever desired something a new home, car, relationship, investment, something that you considered BIG or LIFE CHANGING and when you were close to receiving it, fear crept in?

I have experienced that quite a few times.  I remember when it looked like a relationship I desired was finally coming to be.  I became scared and worried.  I wondered if the relationship was what I truly wanted and if I would be happy once I was in it.  It turned out to be more than I thought it would be, it was great.  Had I not recognized my fear for what it was and chosen to manage it by controlling my thoughts, taking deep breaths and simply slapping myself if necessary fear could have consumed me and affected my health and my relationship.

I am currently on the brink of making a major investment and I must say fear is creeping in.  This morning as I read my daily affirmations, vision and chief aim statements I was reminded that all is well as I understand the power in the spoken and the written word.  I understand the power of my thoughts and intent.  Nevertheless, I am admittedly afraid thinking of the what ifs, however, in the midst of a minor panic attack, I am taking deep breaths and reading quotes on success.

I read one yesterday that made me feel somewhat at ease about what's to come in my limitless future, "If you're not making mistakes, you're not learning." Robert Kiyosaki

Many of us fear making mistakes, many of us fear failure.  I don't know of one successful man in the present, past, nor future that won't make any mistakes.  As the saying goes experience is a teacher.  Now are some mistakes unavoidable? Absolutely!  Is it best to learn from the successful and wise and do what they did? Absolutely!  Must you get out there put caution to the wind and take risks to be successful? You betcha!

How can you manage fear:
  • take deep breaths
  • Read inspirational quotes/messages
  • Read your I AM/Vision/Chief Aim Statement
  • Look at your vision board
  • Do Yoga, Exercise, Something Active
  • Think of all the POSITIVE what ifs, imagine how your life will be when everything works out as it should!
  • Meditate
  • Pray
  • Write down all of your fears, they why behind them, then burn it up or bury it

The first time I remember experiencing the death of a loved one is when I was about 3 years old.  My father's grandmother passed away and we attended her funeral.  I remember being there.  Since then I have experienced other loved ones die and countless famous people.  

For some reason when I learned of Maya Angelou's transition I was truly affected.  I felt a piece of energy lost here on earth, I truly did.  It moved me so I tweeted and made a FaceBook post about it.

So in honor of Maya Angelou and Mindset & Motivation Mondays I would be remiss to have this day without recognizing a truly Phenomenal Woman!

Still I Rise’ by Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.
