God has a great life for you. But you’re going to have to ask for it. After you ask for it, you’ve got to believe it. You’re going to have to work for it. Looking for success? Ask, Believe, Work – there’s your formula. Keep the faith, keep believing, keep asking God.
I asked Joshua and Chaz to help me tell some of my life stories. This one is about some of the challenges in my life, I call it dirt. When you get some dirt on you, use it like fertilizer and grow from it. Being successful ain’t easy, but just like an oak tree that grows from an acorn – get used to the dirt… that’s what it takes to be an oak tree. That’s what it takes to be successful.
I met Joshua at a Family Feud taping with his mom. During breaks, I take Rapid Fire questions from my audience. His mom asked me “What advice do you have for a SCAD graduate?” He probably expected me to say something like… work hard and network… but instead, I gave him an opportunity to work with my team after I found out that he studied animation. Joshua’s partner’s name is Chaz – check out the first episode. My first kiss!
You are the captain, the master, the foreman, the general, you’re the head. Don’t give away your power to anyone, especially the devil. Do not let Satan get in your head and function because he has one mission and that’s to keep you off course and to make you think that nothing is possible… that God doesn’t hear you. You need to listen to this, stay on course.
God gave you a wonderful gift at birth. Yes, we all have one, some have more than one. You must use your God-given gifts to reach your full potential. People ask me all the time, how did I do it?
I identified my gift, I worked, I wrote all of my visions down. I read them every morning and every night. I instilled them in my head, and every time I met somebody, I told them what I wanted to do and from there the connections started. I still dream big, because the God I serve is big. Talk to God about your gifts, your dreams, all the things to help you reach your full potential.

As a child, every morning my mother would come into my room while I watched TV and tell me to “get out that box, you’re going to be late for school.”
I watched the Ed Sullivan Show and in my mind at 9 years old, I said I’m going to have The Steve Harvey Show. Ed Sullivan had show sponsors, so when I was 9 I had to get some too. 😂😁🤣 Guess who was my imaginary sponsors at 9 years old? 😂😁🤣

Everything you are going through is preparing you for what you asked God for. Through your trials, God toughens you along the way. I had to learn how to appreciate that.
Now that I am on the other side of my troubles I understand what those troubles were for. God has a path for you, don’t think you are the only one going through it.
There’s no elevator to the top! You have to take the stairs in life. Sometimes in order to get the life of convenience, you have to deal with being uncomfortable.
When you imagine things, it’s actually God showing you a preview of a coming attraction he has for you. The biggest dream killer is telling small minded people what’s in your imagination. Wondering why your friends or family shot down one of your best ideas? Because God gave it to you and not them.
The things that have been in your imagination… you have to start working on them. These are the gifts that God has for you.
Practically everything we use or purchase started out as an idea in someone’s imagination. Your cell phone, your car, etc. The things in your imagination aren’t there by chance. You have to act on them now.
I hope that you enjoy my new “Motivated +” series, I wanted to give you a little more than my regular #Motivated series. Leave me a comment and let me know how you are going to move on the gifts in your imagination.
