Steve Harvey talks to Bk Babe...
Steve Harvey thank you
(My Baked Apple with the Deep Southern Spice on Top, Love Ya)
IF I WAKE UP EVERYDAY DOING:

THE SAME THING. THE SAME WAY.

EXPECT THE SAME RESULTS.

REPEAT.

IF I WAKE UP EVERYDAY DOING:

THE SAME THING. IN THE SAME WAY.

EXPECT THE SAME RESULTS.

Many times in my life, I have slept with fear, of "becoming.."

(I am not alone)

But what I failed to realize, is what I sleep with

I often become.

I used to fear stagnation,

Guess what?

I became stagnated....

I like how Michael Jordan puts it best:

"For many people, fear is an obstacle.
but for me its an illusion."
(Picture that?).

    Those principles are very true, even though so easily forgotten.

    I aspire to have fear be an illusion for me. Like many, I get stuck too.

    Hope you have a good weekend.

    i have been struggling with a lot of my fears lately. fear can kill you while you are still breathing.

    I just realized that I have no fear...

    All this time I was held back by something that was not there.

    Sham on me.

    I've been coming across this same thing recently and think I must be doing it or I wouldn't notice. When I wake up tomorrow, I will be committed to doing something differently and seeing what happens.

    Another one I like:

    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    PEACE

    Many times in my life, I have slept with fear, of "becoming..."

    This something that I struggle with on the daily. All of the things that I am suuposed to do, that I am trained to do and have been blessed with the talent to do I don't do. Mostly because I have a fear of being. It's the strangest fear in the world but it is my reality. Hopefuly one of these days I will take a deep breath and just overcome and get this damn book done.

    Hope all is well with you Brooklyn Babe!!

    DIVA

    Fear to me is falling, so when I am scared I always try becuase I know GOD is on my side.

    I love listening to Steve Harvey's closing remarks and this one is truly my favorite:

    "If you keep doing, what you been doin, you gonna keep gettin', what you been gettin'."

    So simple, yet so powerful

     
  • At 9/3/06 10:11 PM, Blogger MIZPOWDERPINK said…

    I so needed to read this. Fear is something that I thought I had control over, but I'm realizing that need to control has been out of fear. I'm fighting that demon as I type.

    Hey Babe!

    Need to make that my mantra of the moment.

    OHHHHHH, that Jill Scott song rings so true it hurts.
