The Cure for Indecision for My Generation

by Everlecia J. Taylor

We have more options than ever before —more food choices, more schools choices, and more career choices. The truth is our abundance of options makes it harder to decide. “Let’s go to decisionmakingMcDonalds. No Chiptole. No P.F Changs.” We can’t even decide on what to eat tonight. Yet society tells us to go out into the world and choose what we want to be while there are a zillion new professions are created every day. When I was in elementary school, I wanted to be a basketball player, and in middle school, I wanted to be a journalist. When I was in high school, I couldn’t decide but I felt forced to choose something.

I wanted to be a journalist because it was something that was right in my face. But then I decided in high school to pursue becoming a pharmacist Continue reading “The Cure for Indecision for My Generation”

The Toxicity Inside

deadly-98846_1280I think no one would argue that as people we have a bent toward the negative. That is, we will believe something negative, do something negative and say something negative faster than we will believe, do or say something positive. The question I’ve been asking myself lately is why? Why do we naturally embrace toxicity? I think the answers rest within you.

You don’t truly love who you are. We each have two eyes, two ears, a nose and a mouth but we are each unique. In a world full of millions of people, no two have the same set of fingerprints, not even twins – unique. You may have likes and talents like another but if you take the time to look closely you will see that there is something different. Unless you love yourself, you’ll never be happy and toxicity will fester in you. How can you learn to love yourself and embrace your uniqueness? Think of the things you do when you love another person – you enjoy the things that person likes, you enjoy being with that person, and you speak well of that person. Do these things for yourself even when no one else does. Continue reading “The Toxicity Inside”

Never Give Up

Never give up. Never give up on your dreams. Never give up on yourself. We hear that all the time. But what does “never give up” really mean? What does it look like? What does it feel like?

To never give up is painful.

To never give up is being lonely.

To never give up is not being supported by those close to you.

To never give up is loosing friends.

To never give up is unpaid debt and unpaid bills.

To never give up is doubts, fears and anxiety.

BUT

To never give up smashes doubts, fears and anxiety.

To never give up supplies character.

To never give up supplies integrity.

To never give up builds your bank account so “unpaid” is exterminated.

To never give up supplies new friends and colleagues who encourage, support and celebrate you.

To never give up is realized goals and dreams.

To never give up supplies peace of mind.

To never give up supplies courage.

To never give up delivers a “can do” mind set.

Never give up. It’s worth it.

Get Out and Stay Out!

I recently expanded my coaching business to help people produce clear and persuasive writings with my professional editing and proofreading services. (Professional Editing and Proofreading Services) I was recently editing client’s work wherein she talked about a very familiar story. She explained the significance of the story in such away that I jumped out of my chair and experienced a huge, A-HA, WOW moment! I was so excited! She raised a point in the story that I knew but for some reason, didn’t fully realize. The magnitude of that point just overwhelmed me. You are probably asking, “What was the story?” Here it is: Continue reading “Get Out and Stay Out!”

Love You!

All during the month of February,  everyone’s thoughts are turned to love – love smothered in hearts, chocolates, stuffed teddy bears and diamonds. There are several definitions of love in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary and I found this one particularly significant: “unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of others”. I’m going to tweak that definition and change “of others” to “of yourself”. Yes, in this life, you must love yourself. It is okay for you to have an unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for yourself.

You’re probably asking, “What was does love have to do with my personal growth?” EVERYTHING! If you are not concerned about yourself, if you don’t love yourself, you will make poor decisions and engage in destructive behavior time and time again. Here are five tips to help you love yourself:

1.Know and accept your weaknesses. Everybody doesn’t know or is able to everything. That’s the way life is set up and you can’t change it. Don’t beat yourself up. Life is also set up so that there is someone already in your life whose strength is your weakness. Numbers and I don’t get along so I have a financial advisor. She’s awesome and translates financial gobbledygook into something I can understand. Be concerned enough about yourself to find your strengther to help you. Continue reading “Love You!”
