Setbacks are momentum busters . They are like the monitors of progress . They come forcefully to grind momentum and bring it to a complete halt . How many of you can relate ? ---
If you have gone through major setbacks in your life then you will understand me when I say a set back can cause your self confidence to hit rock bottom . Oh I wonder if you are hearing me here . I tell you that you will look in the mirror and hate the poor mirror, maybe even crush the poor thing on the floor. ---
Anyway , I know we all respond differently to this monster called setback . Some people's motivation hit rock bottom too . Some fall apart and their self esteem deflates tremendously whilst others are able to bounce back in a short space of time.
Unfortunately there are people who become suicidal because of setbacks , others turn to too much drinking to forget their problems and others suffer a lot of stress and depression . ---
A friend of mine withdraws completely during a major setback . Others can be so angry that they become angry with everyone and everything . ---
In my previous article I suggested you develop a muscle of a warrior instead of a worrier. Let me submit to you that the second muscle you need to develop is the muscle if emotional intelligence. Sometimes overcoming a major disappointment requires a high level of emotional intelligence. ---
Let's develop the emotional intelligence muscle and overcome setbacks .

Slight testimony 💛
If you would have approached me a week ago, my thoughts on this topic may have been COMPLETELY different. But I'm here to tell you something about God and how he has shifted my faith! Lately, I've had no choice but to take risks, ask for things that I'm not "qualified" for, go for opportunities that make me feel uncomfortable, and quite honestly not take NO for an answer. It's been the most unpredictable week of my life. But it's been life changing. I've been able to witness how "going for it" can be the difference between receiving an opportunity or not. And I've also seen that in the situations when I'm most uncomfortable, the most GLORY manifests from them. I am happy to say that I no longer need to work a 9-5, and I don't. But it's not because of me, it's because of my GOD, And the amount of faith that I placed in him. He's allowed me to create my experience in life, and things that I've been praying for for years are manifesting now! In Divine timing!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Moral of the story is, CREATE YOUR FRUITFULNESS! Opportunities are not going to always come knocking at your door asking for you by name. Sometimes you have to see the opportunity and TELL THEM WHAT YOUR NAME IS! You got this sis, go after the impossible! #JoinTheSisterhood
Instead of asking what your passion is when searching for a job, try asking yourself what types of opportunities excite you. What job postings make your heart race faster when you read them? What’s the common denominator of these opportunities? What skills do you want to use each day? What do you want to avoid at all costs?
Maybe you’ll come to realize that these opportunities point toward a different path than the one you’re on, or the one you thought you’d take. That’s okay! Now you need to figure out what to do to attain these jobs. Do you fit the requirements, or do you have work to do before you qualify?
By determining what would excite you about waking up and heading to work each day, you are inadvertently determining your passions. It might not be clear to you now, and perhaps you’ll have to try a few options before hitting the nail on the head, but you can get there!

Let me tell you, all I wanted 2.5 years ago was to live a life of OPTIONS....I dreamed of traveling a little more, moving closer to dear friends + spending more time with my husband who was always working to support our little family of 5 — he's a freaking saint.
I turned to my faith, got down on my hands and knees and begged the Lord for an opportunity, “Give me options. Show me what to do.” And that's when my life changed. I didn't give up. And I was given the huge blessing of Rodan & Fields being put in my lap. ✨
It took hard work + determination but man, am I glad I took that gift and ran with it....... Now I make an incredible income, thank the Lord 🙌🏻 and on occasion I wear my “dressy” yoga pants while doing it!😂😉 Want that same gift? I have it + I crave giving it away. DM me if you want to learn more + let's chat. <3
I love me a pretty notebook. @tammygibsononline I pulled these out this morning to journal and get some stuff ready before the blog challenge and realized my notebooks were right on point already. Of course we know this isn’t a coincidence! Ask the universe for confirmation and you will receive it, you just need to be open to seeing the gifts. Do you believe in manifesting the things you want in life?
Today's WORD from @mzkarribaby !! WON'T HE DO IT!!!???👏🏾👏🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

Don't let these man-made rules and regulations sway you! You're already APPROVED AND CERTIFIED!!! 💪🏾
Boundaries are the space between you and the people you interact with, both physical and emotional.
Our physical boundaries determine how close we stand to someone, when and how we will physically touch a person. Our emotional boundaries determine behaviour we will encourage or reject from others.
Being able to set these and navigate them requires courage and because boundaries are not black and white, a great deal of self-awareness is needed to navigate them. They continually change and can depend on the circumstance.
The ability to recognize one’s own character, feelings, desires can be an overwhelming thought but the knowledge is key to learning and establishing our own boundaries.
Working with a coach or taking a programme to work on boundaries is a perfect way to create self-awareness and establish positive boundaries. Stay tuned for more on this topic from me soon.
