While on my own personal journey to Greatness (Purpose), I have experienced many set-backs, heart aches, stress, passion fatigue, and moments of defeat. Stressors are meant to distract vision and hinder focus. Thus, I am a living witness that the journey to success is by no means an easy road, but it definitely is an attainable road.
Because of my many personal experiences, I am adamant about encouraging others to use their pain to fuel their purpose. I desire to help you, too!
I have learned that achieving Greatness isn’t just about being “good at” or “smart about” maintaining wealth and having a successful career and family. It’s also about finding your peace in purpose. In addition, it’s about being able to handle your business – and life – and not let the speed bumps you encounter permanently affect you, your idea of who you are, or what you can do.
For over 12 years, I have worked as a passionate educator but was driven to leave and work as a full-time entrepreneur after experiencing unprecedented levels of stress and pandemic teaching burnout. I am a living testament that God is always with you even in your darkest seasons, and it is in those spaces that he is preparing you for your Greatness. As owner and founder of the Above & Beyond Agency, Inc. and The Beyond Foundation, Inc.,I have managed services and programs for more than 3 years now that help individuals live positive and productive lives. It was while experiencing some of my deepest pains that I sought God for directions, and I intently listened for His desires. It is through my companies, given by visions, that I take steps daily to walk in my God-given Greatness (Purpose).
On the path to Greatness, you’ll encounter lots of snags, slip-ups, hiccups, and moments where you’ll want to give up, as did I. That’s why managing stress and self-love are so important.
Regardless of what you do in life, you’re bound to occasionally experience stressors. Whether you’re a teacher balancing lesson planning and state testing, a parent of a tween entering middle school, a wife or husband juggling hectic family demands, a pastor counseling and leading a congregation through a pandemic, a coach defending a national title, or an entrepreneur striving to navigate daily business operations, stress is a natural byproduct of life.
No one is invisible to pains, and no matter what’s going on “on the outside” or what crazy the world throws your way, with faith, grace, resilience, effective stress management strategies, and self-love you can find your Greatness.
I declare today that your Greatness will no longer be hindered because you now have the tools to successfully manifest your Greatness!
