So You Think You Know Me

When people criticize your glory, it’s because they have no idea about your story. The light your life shines often illuminates the not so nice parts in other peoples lives. Instead of taking this as an opportunity to work on those things that causes them unhappiness, critical people find it easier to attack you. When this happens, use your heart to look deeper than the negative words and offer compassion instead of defensive or negative comments. What critics are really saying is, “I want what you have and I’m scared that I will never have it.” Share with them the reason why your light shines so brightly. You could be the missing link to their destiny!

How do you handle criticism?

Find A Way

Recently, I was reminded of one woman’s journey of accomplishing her life’s dream. It took her 30 plus years to see the fulfillment of that dream. Often, I have wondered what did she do to remain dedicated, to stay on course, or encouraged. So, I began looking inside myself for answers. And after giving good consideration to this question, I have come to believe that if your dream is meant to be, YOU will find a way. There will be a small but powerful voice that partners with an undeniable feeling that says, “this is what you are supposed to do.”

There is one thing I remind myself in these moments, and that is, a delay is not a denial. Remain encouraged and soak in each lesson that life teaches. Soon you will begin to see obstacles as opportunities vital to your success.

Do you have a dream worth fighting for?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Future Focused



Ask For Help!

Ladies, my wish today is to coach you on how and when to ask for help. It breaks my heart to see and hear of women suffering in silence. The more responsibility you have, the more need you will have for help. Truthfully, asking for help is a sign of intelligence and strength. Even though we are  wonderfully made, there are limitations to our superpowers. We all possess a unique individual gift, but using those gifts collectively gives us our greatest potential for power.

In 2006, I founded Future Focused Professional Life Coaching because I found myself struggling asking for help. And not just any help. I needed help that would be discreet, encouraging, and affirming.  Back then, I was working as a psychotherapist. I needed someone that could understand that I shouldered the daily responsibilities of both patient concerns and healthcare staff members. In my job, there was very little room for error. Strangely enough, this is what made me one of the best, but also made me feel alone and stressed.

Please, please, please ladies take great care of yourselves. Do as I did, ASK FOR HELP! It will be the best decision of your life. It’s okay to be selective about the type of help you receive. Quality is important. Call Future Focused for professional life coaching services today. There are several ways that we can help you. Face-to-face, telephone, electronic mail, and Skype.  There is no longer an excuse for hiring the best. Call us now @ (901) 494-8033 or email us at

Voices In My Head

Not too long ago, I was talking with a client about helping him with his relationships and how to improve them.  His story reminded me of  my past struggles in relationships.  I shared with him how negative self-talk was playing a powerful role in damaging my relationships.  Most importantly, my relationship with myself.  Because I thought of myself in a negative way, my feelings, choices, and behaviors fell in line with my thoughts. My turning point came when I woke up feeling sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I wanted better for myself because I knew I deserved better.  I was finally able to accept that I was created for a beautiful purpose and was willing to do whatever necessary to take control of my destiny.  Life coaching was a wonderful experience in my life. But I will always be thankful that I gave myself permission to live in the light and no longer exist in the darkness!

Strength In Numbers

For the past few months, I have been sharing my experiences with being in my Love Bubble.  Recently, I have added yet another benefit to this beautiful life of mine, and that is STRENGTH! Everyday I wake up and purposefully put on an attitude of love and gratitude. My mind and world have been pleasantly transformed despite all of the many obstacles life tries to throw my way.  Recently, I have been reminded that love gives me strength to face, cope, and overcome my biggest fears.  I remained committed to seeing the beauty in ALL things, and was given a most precious gift. I could literally feel the love and support of people holding me up and giving me what I need to make it through. I walked away from that situation with a greater respect and love for myself  because I accomplished something that I never thought I was strong enough to do.  My Goliath is gone and I could not have done it without all the people who are in my love life.   THANK YOU EVERYONE!

How I Got Over

Life can be amazing on many levels. A few days ago, I was reminded of just how far I have come as a human being. I recalled many dark and traumatic places and times.  Those times felt so real that I believed it was my only reality.  Fast forward to years later, and I can see just how many negative circumstances that I successfully overcome.

My secrets to success have been my deep spirituality and surrounding myself with healthy and trustworthy people.  I have learned to not only to spend quality time with God, but to listen to His voice and follow through.  And just when I needed something the most, the right person(s) was always there.  My loving and life saving support system.

Each life experience has helped to make me into the woman I am today.  So in this moment is a woman grateful for her life and the ability to live it to the fullest!  I am proud of me!

What have you overcome?
