The Greatest story I ever told myself..

How to attain and maintain the person that is YOU!


Who do you think has the power to change your life?  Is it the neighbor that lives beside you?  Your parents who have influenced you?  How about society that imposes itself upon you?  Whether you know it or not YOU are the one with the power to control and change your life!

You owe it to yourself to find out who you truly are.  Hopefully this article will help you not only gain insight into self, but gives you the tools you need to succeed as you are faced with life’s challenges.

We are taught, you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers - but never blame yourself. It's never your fault. But it's always your fault, because if you wanted to change you're the one who has got to change.

Katharine Hepburn

Here is an example and a tell tale sign of you giving up your personal power:

Blame.  One of the most powerful and devastating things anyone can do is to live a helpless life.  Nothing is more damaging to the mind, soul, body, and spirit.  When your soul is diminished by outside forces then you have given those outside entities the power to control you.

Blaming is the same as being or becoming a victim.  How?  They both make you believe that you are the cause of your problems and if that weren’t enough, it gives an unhealthily weapon to use in the blaming of others.  If you really want an example, take a look at those around you.  Are they moving forward or not?

The measure of moving forward is the measure of the distance you have between old and new thinking.  The smaller the distance between the two the better you are at taking responsibility for your life.  The wider the distance, the more the tendency to blame.

The more you think like a victim the more you become one.  The more you become one, the more you remain one.  

“Your thoughts become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your character, your character becomes your destination.”

If you really want the power to take back your life then stop blaming others for what you know you are responsible for.  Take a long hard look in the mirror and have a serious self-talk.  If you want to become a leader or even a better one, then having some accountability in your life.

It takes courage and faith to lead a more effective and productive life.  You must have the courage and will to change this equation in your life.  Less blame and more productivity. How?  Here’s how.

1. Decisiveness.  Being decisive is one of the ways to take back your power and defeat the disease of blame.  You have to make a conscience choice that will lead to change.  Decisive individuals are those who can intelligently look at a given situation, assess it, and move forward to do something about it.

Remember the quote.

“Your thoughts become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your character, your character becomes your destination.”

Your decision to follow this quote will lead you in a different direction.  Once you have made the choice to do so, you will over time see your life slowly move in the opposite direction.

2. Accountability.  What is accountability?  According to Webster’s Dictionary accountability is “the fact or condition of being accountable”.  ”The quality or state of being accountable, especially: an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions public officials lacking accountability”.

You are not a solo act.

You are not an island. If you are a part of a team of people then you have a specific role to play.  You are responsible for fulfilling that role as it meets the needs of others.  It is your “job” to make sure you are living up to the standards you have set for yourself.  If you have none, now is the time to start implementing some.

You are to make sure that you are living and doing the best and highest you as you possibly can.  You have a major role to play in life and You have to become whole in order for effective synergy to take place.  We are human beings.  We are energy.

Accountability is synergistic in nature.  The energy and force that one has is intertwined with others to form a bond that either enhances or deteriorates over time.  If parts are toxic then it affects the whole until the bond is severed in whole or in part.

3. Consistency and continuation.

What makes consistency and continuation so important is they it becomes a “flow” in your life. You are now able to see your way clearly as you become more authentic and aware of the direction your life is taking.  

Your life now has some transformation and you have metamorphosed into someone totally different.  Not different in the way you look or even where you live, but in the way you think.  You have gone from being the “old self” into the “new self” which is what change is all about.

Being consistent is really the key to a successful life.  Acquiring new habits and leaving the old behind may be a slow transformation process, but it leads to a more aware life.  

A more aware life makes you aware of you to see the person you truly are.  Seeing the powerful person I am is truly are is worth the time and investment it takes to becoming the person I was meant to be.

“The only way you can have a new beginning is to clear the path of the old”

In order to move past the old way of thinking you have to incorporate new ones. 

My story continues…

It is that discovery that I developed and started my online brand, The Digital Vibe Podcast (Network).  In life when you are growing to become the person you were meant to be you recover and discover at the same time.  You recover from becoming the person you are not to your true and authentic self. As I “grow through” the process of becoming my true self I discover that what the Universe thinks about me is the only thing that matters. Everything outside of that really doesn’t mean much.

My purpose in being here is twofold: to become my best self and become a contributor to this world.  Then I discovered that I matter and I had a lot I wanted to say and contribute.  I had much to share.  The journey of a my reason why began to unfold and what you see here is the result of who I am.  I am very proud of that!  My mission, vision, and goal for this Podcast is one in which I want to inspire myself and others as well. I chose to do that and a decision that I do not regret.  I had to stand up and fight for the person I most loved and that is me!!  If I don’t who will?

When you are courageous and bold to stand up for your greatest treasure then who can really touch you, no one can get in your way. I had to learn that lesson the hard way but its because of that I refuse to and will always fight for my greatest treasure me. My dreams, its goals, and all their is in between means more to me than anything or anyone else.  I have literally fallen in love with everything I do and the ways I express myself.  My podcast and what you see here are all expressions of me and what I want my brand to convey. I want their to be NO doubt of who I am and my commitment to it.

The “power of The Digital Vibe” is a power of self expression and influence.  The power in the person that is me is one that knows who she is and leaves a legacy of good intentions in this world.  You are only as good as who you choose to become and only as great to the legacy you leave behind. My greatest success has to be that I was able to accomplish both and doing so with excellence.
