Who he talking about?…..

I put my foot in my mouth.

Just yesterday I said  I’m not going to talk about this or that and only about me and blah blah blah right? Well, I went scrolling through blog post and came across a very intriquing message.  It read “The future belongs to the artist”.  Check out this young man’s work. I loved it so much I had to repost.  24hrstosuccess.com  Thanks for the love KG, I love ya back!-)

1497241_452143554908401_1073775498_n-2The future belongs to the artist.

The ones who thrive on ambiguity, passion and creativity.
The ones who create themselves instead of finding themselves.
The ones who don’t need a map and find their own way.

According to his report, Nick Petrie from the Center for Creative Leadership, suggests that our current and future environment are subjected to become more complex than ever. More precisely, he noted that leaders of tomorrow should be prepared to face an environment that is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.  Jeff Barnes, Head of Global Leadership of General Electric, beautifully illustrates our present and future times by saying that there is no boundaries anymore.

The playing field is setting itself up for artists to thrive and make a difference.

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious – the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.” – Albert Einstein

Technology is breaking boundaries everyday – there’s no more excuse not to take a stand on an idea. The platforms are set. The tools are becoming more and more sophisticated. A decade ago, we couldn’t imagine the possibility of communicating face to face with someone across the other side of the planet. Yet, both Niklaz Zennstrom and Janus Friis, founders of Skype, believed that communication should have no boundaries. They were artists. The opportunities to make a difference are now abundantly available – the issue remains within us.

We have upgraded our technology but we have not upgraded ourselves.

The information out there is now overwhelming. The systems are interconnected in a complex manner and everyday new technology is replacing old workers and work habits. There is a mass amount of very good information out there. A simple google search of any given topic will prove to you that there are a multitude of very good opinions out there to please you. However,  our current times are indicating that our future will be looking for remarkable ideas. All the videos that go viral and the ideas that spread causing revolutions today, are all remarkable attempts to make a difference.

They are all done by artists – the leaders of tomorrow.

Leaders and artists are synonymous in the work that they do. Both create their own reality that they pictured in the mind. They set out to create something out of nothing based on their perspective. With courage, they see where they can make an impact and take initiative despite the brouhaha and influx of ambiguity. They don’t wait to be given instructions.

These are not special people.
These are people that made a choice to live life differently from what they were told.
They don’t do work that is popular, they do work to make a difference.

This all makes me realize one thing: only doing matters now – doing something that can make a difference.

To the artists out there reading this, the future belongs to you. Keep doing what you’re doing. Keep creating. Take a stand and defend your heart – live your art.

“How dare you settle for less when the world has made it so easy for you to be remarkable.” – Seth Godin

They said but God says……,

Research shows bloggers that have a specific agenda that meets the needs of the people are successful and gain many followers.

I don’t have a clue from day-to-day what I will say, do or even think. I’m not one with news on how to make your plant grow, stars scandals, magic hair serum or the latest gossip but I am the one who knows about God, His greatness, His love and compassion for me.  I write my struggles and triumph in hope it reach the masses and can truly help someone along the way. There’s so much going on I can write a book. In fact, I did write one. If you don’t have a copy you should get one in your hands today.  “Darkness Within Me” Tracy B (order from Me or Amazon.com)

I appreciate everyone that’s following and the millions to come but if you’re looking for me to gossip about someone other than me, you’re looking at the wrong blog. I’m not going to tear you down to build me up.

God says focus on getting self together first, then you can help others.

Much Love,

Tracy B

 

 

The Secret of sacrifice…….

Obedience is better than sacrifice!

Many people have sacrificed themselves for others, thinking when they sacrifice themselves inspirational-2they are being a good person. Wrong! To sacrifice yourself can only come from thoughts of absolute lack, because it is saying, “There is not enough for everyone , so I will go without.” Those feelings do not feel good and will eventually lead to resentment. There is abundance for everybody and it is each person’s responsibility to summon their own desires. You cannot summon for another person because you cannot think and feel for another. Your job is You. When you make feeling good a priority, that magnificent frequency will radiate and touch everyone close to you.

You become the solution for you. Give more to yourself. Take time off to give to yourself, and in a sense to fill yourself up to fullness, to where now you can overflow in giving. – Dr. John Gray

Remember to treat yourself with love and respect, that way others know how to treat you!

Much Love,

God is smiling on me……

There’s not a day I’m not thankful.

createEver since my cousin’s death I’ve been in a mood of gratitude. God has been and still being good to me. The pain is still real and present but it’s not taking over my life.  I’m not living in fear and don’t even miss controlling the situation all that much. I’ve learned to love and embrace my flaws and even laugh at the mistakes I make along the way. I’m thankful for this moment in my life because this is real peace. Each day He reveals purpose and each day I expect to learn something more.

 Life is ours to create and execute our creation. 

Much Love,

It’s lining up now…..

To know HIM is to love HIM!

unwrappedThumbnail-1God has smiled on me.  He’s giving me peace for my pain, love for my loss, healing for my heaviness and it’s giving me power in my praise.  I didn’t understand it all at first but each day God reveals a little more and because of that I’m thankful for it all. I know it’s all working for my good, my family’s good, my friend’s good and everyone that’s connected to me will be blessed real good. This is factual. God said it and He is not a man who  should/could/would lie.

Do not fear, only believe!

Much Love,

Bye negative, we’re done for the day…..

management-training-listening-skills1The closer you get to your breakthrough, the more people try to distract or deter you from reaching the finish line.  Don’t allow this to happen.  You have to ignore the ignorance of others and keep pushing pass the problems and pettiness they present.  Refuse to communicate with nonsense, naysayers, haters, and any other negative person, place, or thing. Remember it’s your day to create any way you like! Enjoy it!!

 I choose to be productive, prosperous and positive this Friday. What’s your choice?

Much Love,

Tracy B

Here in my praise…..

The best quote of the day

“If you could figure it all out today what will be the point of tomorrow? Enjoy the process of being a work in progress.” -Kadar Godad

I will never be the same oh Lord, for in Your power and presence I am forever changed!

Much Love,

Start this car I’m ready to go……

I never knew of my rage and anger until I was exposed. What I mean is I was pissed. I didn’t realize how upset I was until I walked up to view my younger cousins body. I stood there looking down at her and felt heat rising. I wanted to scream but instead walked away and never looked back; passing my seat heading straight to my car. I didn’t want to be bothered and God didn’t bother me. Everything aggravated, irritated and irked me. I started cursing and speaking words of defeat, doom and damnation. But yesterday God had enough. He was listening in on me going off on a friend who was exposed as foe. I got in my car ready to take off, drive reckless and curse the entire ride home but my car wouldn’t start and just like that I began laughing. I knew I had said too much and too much of the wrong stuff.

“Go now and apologize. Don’t wish ill over anyone but pray for everyone, even your enemies.” I sat in that car and started cranking it even harder like I didn’t hear anything. “If you don’t move your car wont move.” Without another word I got out of the car, went into the house and apologized for my words. However, when I opened my mouth it was as if God was speaking through me. I was so expressive, so free in my feelings, so emotional. In that moment I knew I was free from the bondage of something because I felt lighter. Something had been removed, something heavy. I was breathing better, laughing and saying well wishes as I left. I got into my car and of course it started. “Don’t fear, Only believe! You shall live and not die. Your success is guaranteed. Allow the past to pass and freely walk in the spirit of now. For what I have is greater than everything you’ve lost. Anger will not consume you. The night is almost over, the day is approaching fast.

Obedience moves God and releases you!

Much Love,

Tracy B

Praise is what I do…..

The enemy wants me to fear my praise. Can you believe that?

I don’t wish to bore or bombard you all with my pains, tribulations and trials but this is my outlet. This is how I deal with all life has to offer at this point. I write, I talk, I sing, I cry, I dance and finally I worship. images-2However, I’m at a place of uncertainty. I don’t know what is going on. I can’t even describe how I feel.  If I had to describe it I would use words like numb, exhausted, helpless, alone, and afraid. Why? Because I’ve had another family member leave this earth and the big family that I use to describe as dysfunctional is now my solid foundation. The more I sit and think, the more I began to thank Him. I’m not sure why I’m thanking Him because I’m not happy about the situation at all, but I’m reminded of what my mom repeated constantly “When praises go up EXPECT blessings to come down.” The enemy wants me to believe the more I praise the more family is taken away, but God says the more I praise the more He keeps me and my family. They’re not just gone forever, they’re with my Father God and as long as they are with Him I’m blessed!

I’m not worried about tomorrow, I’m living for today!

Much Love,

Tracy B
