Unleashing Your Potential

Your Street of Divine Destiny

YOUR STREET OF DIVINE DESTINY

By Dr. Yomi Garnett

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”
The Psalmist

Every season requires its own stories. In this season, the global economy is in the alarming flux of a recession, with individuals, families and nations witnessing a downturn in their fortunes.
I relate this poignant story to show that, sometimes, it’s in the depths of despair that great resourcefulness is born. Indeed, our current adversity can be the propelling motivation for the brilliant flash of inspiration that will turn our life around.

It had been an exceptionally humid day in London, but this somewhat oppressive weather soon gave way to a cool breeze as dusk settled over the city. It was the evening of the fifth day of October, 1843, and a young man stepped out of his house and into a serene neighborhood street near Regent’s Park. He tousled his brown hair with his right hand, and making a brave attempt at cheerfulness, he waved his left hand in a perfunctory greeting to a couple of elegant ladies in an equally elegant horse-drawn carriage. Charles Dickens, arguably England’s most eminent author, was on his routine evening walk. He looked profoundly distressed as his accustomed walk took him farther and farther away from the stylishly graceful ladies and fine gentlemen of his affluent neighborhood and into what the novelist himself called the black streets of London. By the time he got to the Thames River, the gas lamps that lit his way through the better neighborhoods had given way to dull light coming from the windows of tenement blocks to cast an equally dull glow on litter-strewn streets bordered by open sewers. The human traffic had also changed to the dregs of the city: street urchins, pickpockets and beggars.
Dickens’s gloom deepened as this change in human tone evoked traumatic memories of himself as a Your Street of Divine Destinytwelve- year old impoverished boy subjected to the grueling task of attaching labels to an endless stream of pots of black boot paste, for twelve hours a day, for six days in the week, to earn the six shillings that would sustain him. Meanwhile, his father languished in debtor’s jail and poor Dickens was receiving only an hour of school lessons during his lunch break. For the boy, life seemed quite bleak and hopeless, until, by an unexpected twist of fate, the elder Dickens, almost unbelievably, came into an inheritance. He paid his debts and was released (continue reading…)


James Fortune & FIYA: “Built For This”

James Fortune & FIYA: “Built For This”

Here is a song I listen quite often and it builds me up when I’m in doldrums and when my spirit is in a low place. I have decided to share it here because I know that there are millions of people in the world who are going through a lot of challenging times and just need a boost. This song will turbo-charge your life to the next level. I can guarantee you that!

Here are some words from the song:

I know I’m built for this,

Built to conquer,

I’m to built to last,

I may bend but won’t break,

This will not take me out,

Because I’m built for this…..

My fears no longer control me

I’ve got the power to overcome them

Things in my past won’t block me

I am a winner

I’m never giving up” – James Fortune & Fiya

Hang Haman – Destroy Your Fears

Hang Haman – Destroy Your Fears

During my meditation time today, I read from the good book, from the book of Esther 7:1-10. It talks about a certain man, Haman, who was an enemy to Queen Esther and her people. He had a plan to destroy Esther and her people, including her parents and brethren. He even went as far as building a gallows to hang Queen Esther’s uncle, Mordecai, who groomed her from when she was a kid. Mordecai was a man who spoke faith into Esther’s life when she didn’t have enough faith to believe in herself.

Queen Esther took a step to expose the evils plans of Haman by discussing his(Haman’s) intentions with King Xerxes. Haman’s plans angered the king and he commanded that Haman be hanged. Guess what? He was hanged on the same gallows that he had built to hang Mordecai on.

How to Destroy Fear

I found this story so interesting because just like Mordecai, you may be going through challenges in your life, because there is someone out there who doesn’t wish you and your family to succeed. Today, that person is exposed. That person is represented by these letters ‘F-E-A-R.’ Resolve in your mind that you will destroy fear and you will “hang Haman.” Haman represents fear, poverty, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, suicidal thoughts, etc. Today, they will be destroyed in your life.  You’ve got do a couple of things though. Read on. (continue reading…)

The Necessity of Stress

The Necessity of Stress

This morning, I went on my 3-mile run as I often do everyday. While on that run, I listened to a talk by the great Steve Harvey on the necessity of stress if you’re to fulfill your dreams. He gave several stories about his life and how what he went through while growing up has led to where he is today. He went through a lot of challenges, but all the bad things he went through worked out for good. He tells a story of when he was working at Ford and was one of those responsible for turning scrap metal into engine blocks. Before the scrap metal can become an engine block, it has to go through the furnace(a lot of heat and pressure). It is not a pretty sight when it is going through that furnace. However, at the end of the process, it comes out as a beautiful engine block that’s used to build the beautiful car that you see. You see, it had to go through the furnace(stress) in order to come up perfect.

I want you to realize this, you’re going to have major disappointments in life. Life is not a care-free ride. It is full of a lot of challenges, especially if you’re trying to accomplish something great. Someone wants said that “The road to success is always under construction.” ALWAYS! That’s just the way it is. There will be detours, STOP signs, pot holes in life. The key is to stay the

Take a Leap of Faith

course and not give up when people tell you that you will never make it. That’s dirt thrown at you. The good news is that dirt has some minerals and manure in it and it is designed to provide you with the nutrients you need to grow.

You can get through your challenge. You can survive it. You will come out better than you went in. When you come under attack, and are tried, know that you will win. Some days it doesn’t look like you’re going to come out on top. I want you to know without a shadow of a doubt that you go through the fire and you won’t get burned. You’re going to grow through the fire. You can come on the other side victorious.

Go after your dreams right away. Don’t wait for the perfect time. There is no such thing. If you’re waiting for the right time to pursue your dreams, you’ll be waiting a long time. What is required is taking that leap of faith. Sometimes you may have to jump off a cliff to accomplish your dreams. That leap of faith may be required on more than one occassion of life. In order to be successful, you have to do some things that you’re uncomfortable with. Step out in faith.

Remember what Les Brown often says: “Leap and grow your wings on the way down.”

Put a huge bet on you and on your ability to achieve your goals. Throw all caution to the wind!

If you have a setback, know that you have the power to overcome it. If you make some mistakes, learn from them and try again. If you lose a job, you will find another, or create one. This is a time to use your talents, skills and resourcefulness to make a fundamental change and take your life to the next level. Remind yourself everyday that you are in it to win it. Do what you need to do to make it happen! You are your most valuable asset. You have the power within you to make a difference in your life and in the life of others. You have GREATNESS within you!

Life: Full of Twirls

Life: Full of Twirls

While heading to drop my kids off at the day care this morning, I listened to a song that inspired me so much that I decided I’ll share it with my audience because I believe it will make a difference in someone’s life. It’s a song you probably haven’t heard before titled, “Johnny & Donna,” by Grammy-nominated artist, Kortney Jamaal Pollard(better known by his stage name “Mali Music“). This song is particularly talking about two people who fell in love, but didn’t have the time to plan their future. Life happened to them, just like it has done to many of us. Their lives were full of drama, twists, turns & twirls.

I had to put the song on repeat and listen to the words many times to get the message Mali was sharing through this song. It emphasizes the importance of making the best that life hands you. If life hands you lemons, turn them into the most delicious lemonade you can make. Be determined and persistence on your journey towards achieving your dreams.

MALI IS

REMEMBER: Nothing is impossible to those who believe. Your belief has to be so strong that distractions or challenges don’t phase you. Keep your eyes on your dreams and goals and remain focused.

Don’t forget that consistency is key as well. Just because your dreams haven’t happened yet does not mean they won’t happen. Keep grinding and remember that God’s delays are not  God’s denials, as Tony Robbins often says.

Below are the lyrics to the song “Johnny & Donna.” Read them alongside watching the YouTube video of the song as well. I hope you enjoy it and share it with someone who’s facing life’s challenges.

Johnny met Donna and they fell in love
But had no idea what love really was
But they tried their best
To make each other smile
But while learning themselves
They would have a child….“But with no time to think the whole thing through
Little time to prepare
It got tough to provide for him
And give him love and care

How, how, how, how
How do I when and where?
Are questions that both often ask God
Life is full of twist, twist
Life is full of twirl, twirl, ta-twirl, twirls
Twirls it’s the way of the world that flips you upside down
When you’re young when you’re old
It just spins out of control, whoa
It spins out of control
So, hold on
Because you never know

Johnny and Donna slowly recognized
That for the baby’s future
They planned 2 different lives
Donna wanted a family
She wanted to do it right
Make Johnny’s house a home
She wanted to be your wife

But Johnny was a dreamer
And he had to move around
Yeah, he’d be there for his child
But wouldn’t settle down….

“How, how, how, how
How do I when and where?
Are questions they both often asked God
Life is full of twist, twist
Life is full of twirl, twirl, ta-twirl, twirls
Twirls it’s the way of the world
It’s whirlwinds and girlfriends
Toys and boyfriend, friend, friends
And Frenchmen,
War, peace, impeachment, gentlemen
Ladies, Hyundai, Mercedes, mistakes and peach rings
Blacks and bleach stains
Don’t forget wasps and bee-stings…

“Whether you’re Johnny OR Donna
Or neither of the two
Just try to make the best of what’s given to you!

Johnny & Donna” is a song from Mali’s latest album titled, “Mali Is.” If you don’t have a copy, dash down here and pick one up ASAP!

How to Enjoy the Journey of Life

How to Enjoy the Journey of Life

Came across a video shared by my new Facebook friend(Shaun Bacchas) and thought I’d share it with you because it contains some gold nuggets shared by both Steve Harvey(best-selling author of “Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success” and Bishop T. D. Jakes. In the video, they share some tips on how to own your happiness and enjoy the journey of life.

You’ve got to realize this: No one is responsible for your happiness but YOU. You hold the key to your happiness. Abraham Lincoln once said: “Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” My understanding of this quote is that your happiness is intentional. It doesn’t just happen by accident. You’ve got to work at it.

Here’s what I recommend you do starting today. Resolve to never let the things that people do upset you. When you let people upset you, you’re giving away your power. Don’t waste your energy on things and people that upset. Use your energy for positive and to make other people’s lives better. Stay away from any form of negativity. Turn off the news and instead, spend your time doing things you enjoy. If you do these few things I’ve suggested, your life will be enriched and you’ll start the process of making your mark on this generation and leaving a legacy for your family.

Enjoy the video below and share one thing that you have derived from the video and that you will start implementing in your life starting today.

Be A Barrier Breaker

Be A Barrier Breaker

Watched a video by Joel Osteen, best selling author of The Power of I Am: Two Words That Will Change Your Life Today. In the video I learned a few things and took notes on what he was talking about. I’ll share some of the things I learned and will share the video at the bottom of this post.

You see, we often let our environment set the limit for our lives. Remember that you weren’t created to be average. You were created to go beyond the norm and leave your mark on this generation and set a new standard. DO NOT accept the limitations set by your environment. Refuse to be mediocre. Realize you’re a barrier breaker.

Take the limitations off yourself. You have so much potential. Break out of your comfort zone and live to your full potential. All growth happens when you step outside of your comfort zone.

Watch the thoughts that flow through your mind. Your mind will, by default, try to convince you that you’ve reached your limits. Don’t pay attention to that lie. Recondition your mind. Don’t adapt to your environment. Your life follows your thoughts. Get rid of the thoughts that are holding you back.

People around you may accept mediocrity. Don’t let that mindset rub off on you. You’re a barrier breaker. You’ve been destined to rise higher to the next level. There is potential in you right now waiting to come out. Get rid of low expectations. You may be in a limited environment. The good news is that you don’t have to stay there. You’re the exception. You’re supposed to go farther.

When you break a barrier, you make it easy for people who come behind you.

The Value of Staying Hungry

The Value of Staying Hungry

I found this video this morning, after coming back from the gym. I think it’s the perfect inspirational video to help jump-start your work week. In the video, Dr. Eric Thomas shares the importance of staying hungry. He talks about a talented young man who achieved massive success because he refused to quit. He went on to sign a contract worth about $88 million because of his desire to hustle hard.

Only those who stay hungry ever achieve the prize. They are in the trenches digging day in and day out. They’re the first to arrive at work and the last to leave. If you want to achieve a level of success that you’ve never achieved, you have to become someone you’ve never been. You do this through daily disciplines and staying away from making excuses.

Pick up a copy of Dr. Eric Thomas’ best selling book “The Secret to Success” by clicking the image below:
