These past 2 weeks have been full of very interesting conversations.
I was able to catch up with some peeps I hadn’t spoken to in a hot minute, and jumped on a few Skype calls with some very happening entrepreneurs.
I felt very motivated, and in the zone. I even found my ipod that’s been missing since forever. So I wondered what the heck was on it, (my ex was actually the one who bought it and put songs on it). *Finds all kinds of music: gospel, rock, pop, songs not in English and then some Wu-Tang, Talib Kweli and Tupac *
So, as I’m listening to and deleting music, I come across the latest ezine from one of my most recent subscriptions Dr. Venus Opal, the headline: Broke, Poor, Rich or Wealthy? I’ve read similar content that essentially touch up on mindset and money. I even did a vlog about abundance vs scarcity mindsets myself. But you know what I’ve learned through marketing, messages get lost in the hustle and bustle of life. Our brains are over-crowded with noise and lots of junk so it can’t hurt to reinforce something that still needs to sink in,(and even that takes a mental shift to understand).
She basically wrote that while poor was a circumstance you work towards changing, “Being broke is when something at the soul level is “broken,” and I’ve learned that your soul is your mind, will, and emotions.
I’m tryin’ to make a dollar out of fifteen cents…
“Rich”, she goes on the write, “…is when you have a lot of ‘stuff’ It’s something you can touch, see, and taste.” And with a broke mindset, “you may get to the top of the ladder and then realize it was leaning against the wrong building!” -Dave Ramsey
This morning I woke up feeling brand new, I jumped up feeling my highs and lows in my soul and my goal’s just to stop…
My Goal isn’t just to stop, it’s to grow. It’s to learn, and to be equipped. It’s to be the head and not the tail.
So the questions then become:
What are we feeding our souls? And if we are called to be leaders, what are we feeding the souls of those who follow?

Until Next time…
