HOW YOU GET THEM IS HOW YOU KEEP THEM

Image
I don’t usually dispense relationship advice, but I’m not only a Certified Life Coach but certified in Relationship Counseling. After having my own bumps in the road I began to study and assess my own mistakes. Someone has got to have the answer. Some do. If you’re in a healthy relationship and the work it takes to maintain your relationship seems easy thank GOD up above. It doesn’t always happen like that.
We all have our issues. Women seek men that give them stability and support. While men look for a woman that makes them feel good about themselves. Did she or does she make him a priority? There are some things that men and women both want.
1.Is this person affectionate? Do I feel loved and cared for with this person?
2.Do we share the same values? You don’t have to agree for your moral compass to be in sync.
3.Am I a priority? Everybody has family and other obligations, and responsibilities. Everyone can appreciate ambition. But would you allow your job to take priority over the perso…

LOOK AT GOD! COACHING CLIENT PENS NEW BOOK ABOUT HIS FAMOUS MOTHER, MARVA COLLINS by Richard Cuff

Image
Look at God!!  A former coaching client referred Patrick Collins to me for my Get Ready for Greatness Executive Coaching Series.  Patrick is the son of world renowned Civil Rights activist and educator Marva Collins who was portrayed by Cicely Tyson in the made-for-tv movie - The Marva Collins Story.

After the first few coaching sessions, Patrick presented me with the honor of editing his new book - Learning Curve; Living in the shadow of Marvin Collins.   He and I are now joining forces by combining my work in early childhood music education with his international early childhood education advocacy effort.  He has agreed to serve as chairman of our board as we create the Marva Collins Foundation and the Marva Collins Early Childhood Education Scholarship Fund.  The Marva Collins Foundation will be operating out of Chicago, IL where I am now opening a second office for CTI Marketing and the Marva Collins Scholarship will become part of our Cora Lee Cuff Fund here in Jacksonville, FL…

THERE'S PURPOSE IN OUR MISTAKES

Image
"Nothing is coincidence; it is Divine." ~Veela aka Venus

No one is perfect, but in GOD'S merciful and infinite wisdom HE made it so we can always benefit from our mistakes; whether it's a life lesson learned or even for HIS glory. Our mistakes have purpose. So before you throw out that piece of paper, or look at what you've done as a failure; please read some examples of people making millions from so-called mistakes.

Did you know there are common products you are highly familiar with, that came about by mistake? These are products that came about in trying to invent something completely different.


The Slinky


While working on a tension spring, Richard James accidentally let one slip off the table. When it hit the ground, it kept on going. This gave him the idea to make it into a product. The product was developed in the 1940’s but is still available today. James’ wife sold the product in 1998.

I'M STILL YOUR MOTHER

Image
Gone are the days when you heard your Mother say, “I brought you into this world and I can take you out!”
Nobody has it like that. Your parents no longer have the final say in what happens in your life. We’ve become so politically correct that we are now dead ass wrong! I believe you should be educated and informed to make an intelligent decision. But there are exceptions to every rule. I don’t believe every teenager has the mental capacity to make life-altering decisions without counsel from their parents or guardian.
I love my daughter with all my heart. We don’t always agree, but she has enough respect to seek her Father’s or my counsel before making major decisions. Although she is grown and concentrating on her career; we still have those heart to heart conversations. Putting GOD first, I’m comfortable with whatever conclusion she comes to. The best thing about being a parent of a grown-up is seeing them fly and flourish.
I read an article that spoke of a Mother being horrified to …

WHO IS THE NEW FACE OF STEPIN FETCHIT?

Image
With the state of the political climate; there is complete unrest for anyone of color, or religion other than Christianity. Today is the first day of Black History Month. Trump decided to make remarks acknowledging the occasion.
“Frederick Douglass has done an amazing job.” Does he even know who Frederick Douglass was or is? I truly doubt it. He threw around a few other names such as Dr. Martin Luther King. Does he understand that Douglass championed abolition and women’s suffrage? Neither cause is something I think Trump would support now; let alone the 1800’s. Douglass went from being a slave to one of the greatest orators of his time. He has more in common with President Obama then Trump who lacks character. It is worth noting that Douglass married a white woman after his first wife died.He married Helen Pitts in 1884 until his death in 1895. I don’t see Trump being a proponent of interracial marriage. He must have misspoken as he often does. Why would today be any different?

SURVIVING THE UNTIMELY DEATH OF A LOVED ONE

Surviving the Untimely Death of a Loved One
Have you lost someone you love dearly? Many times, these deaths come as the result of long illnesses, but sometimes the deaths are sudden and unexpected. In either case, grief can be overwhelming.
Losing a loved one can feel like a piece of you has been taken away. Normal day-to-day activities require much more energy when you're grieving. Dealing with the pain effectively can help you pick up the pieces that are left and continue to live.
Try these methods to help with your grief and move forward:
1.Surround yourself with support. Initially, you may want to be left alone with your thoughts or you may be afraid to love anyone else again. Those feelings are completely normal and even expected. Eventually, though, isolating yourself can be unhelpful to yourrecovery.
Accept the support of others. Sure, people may sometimes say the wrong thing, but most of them sincerely want to help. Seek companionship and be open about your feelings. When peo…
