Don’t Limit Your Success


No matter how good you are, someone is always going to be against you. But never let them be the limit of your success.”– Terry Mark

– Terry Mark

Written by Rebecca Davis

Women between the ages of 18-25 are 60% more likely to limit there success more than men. Women between the ages of 25-45 are 70% more likely to limit there success more than men .

WHY!? Researchers say its because of financial reasons , education and skills and life circumstances that cause women to limit there suceccss.

Women between the ages of 18-25 often go threw a research phase in there education ,meaning during this age period women often experiment in there careers and education.This is the stage of life when we question ourselves is this the right degree,or we began to change our mind in the career place and discover new hobbies,talents and skills and we began new adventures in the professional world and we can sometimes gain opportunities or loose them. This is normal because its our developmental phase and we all go threw it. The bad thing is if you bounce around to much lets say every 1yr or 6months you may limit yourself on the valuable skills you can learn if you stay at a minimum of 2yrs.

As a woman we all are guilty of putting others before us family and friends,always taking care of others needs. When we do this and not put our career first we often get passed over for management positions and promotions.

All age groups get affected by life circumstances. Forinstance getting married,having kids or having to deal with health issues. More than 78% of us make excuses and then life and age passes us over and opportunities that were once there are no longer available.

Many of us get hit with the financial issue and burdens of life. When you don’t have enough income to take training courses,finishing your degree or having the opportunity to go to college or secondary school. College is expensive and many women can’t afford it and we often get over looked for certain positions or opportunities because we lack the funds to skill our needs to advance in the work place.

My advice to everyone is take your opportunities at any age. Make a goal plan and a vision board and pray. Take a risk because you may be dead or too old ,you may regret it if you don’t. We all can’t go to ivey league college but there are cheap skill advancement programs all over and places that offer on the job training and education. There are alternative schools and free education communities. Get a mentor and learn. Educate yourself online,read books,go to the library and take advantage of government programs. And once again pray. Don’t limit your success for anyone GOD has a plan for all of us ask GOD for the instructions.

Life is a new beginning!

Is Work Giving You The Blues?

Its a New Year and Your Work Situation Has Not Changed, If Anything Its Giving You The Blues.

Written by Dr. Rebecca Davis

Don’t get depressed because you are not where you want to be professionally. It is rough out there in the working world. Bills get higher and pay gets lower. But hang in there if you can. Make a plan and a career move. Some people need to switch companies,positions and departments. And sometimes it is just little things that need to be handled.

When you get stressed out just say God take my life in your hands.

Try these steps first and give yourself 1 year before you move to another job.

If you are truly getting bummed out at work try some mood therapy or relaxation therapy . If you have your own office try doing some fengsui or color therapy to lightened your visual mood. Place inspirational quotes and people who you admire on the wall or get a little radio and play music that boosts your creativity. Don’t forget aromatherapy is a good practice at work too. Getting an airfresher with a pleasant scent can calm your nerves.

Decorating your space to your liking is a huge mood changer.

The next task I want you to do is question your work environment.

What do I mean by this you ask? Well are you around toxic people ,boss bullies,gossipers and grouches? If so ,I want you to practice avoidance. Avoidance means don’t hang out with them at work,at lunch and before and after your work shift. I want you to limit them on social media or block them too if necessary. Only associate with them at work and only for work purposes. Arrive at work at the appropriate time and leave ,don’t put extra chit chat energy in.

Are you still Blue?

Don’t be ashamed to get a stress ball they do work. And PRAY! ITS OKAY TO PRAY.

When you get home cry ,crying releases the dark and pint up energy you are holding in. Cry therapy does help with the blues.

If you still have the work blues get a pen and paper handy. I want you to write down what you like and don’t like about your job. If all the bad on the list out weights the good its time to make a plan to move on. Like think about what education you need ,can you do the same thing some where else. And remember there is no perfect work place unless you work at home.

So, I hope that my advice helped you with the blues. If you are feeling blue ware blue,the color blue is a calming and relaxing visual and its great to have in your wardrobe.

Be The Sun By Rebecca Davis 1/1/2019

Boss Ladies Are On Point Today.

Bosses dont let your negative thoughts get in the way today just lead and be the sun like you are supposed to be-Rebecca Davis

Rebecca’s Advice For Today.

When we are leaders alot of pressure and stress gets placed on us. Sometimes we notice amazing things and we forget about the good things because our sunrays can beam off the amazing and therefore overshadow the good things. As people, when we want to be vindictive we often hidebehind the clouds and refuse to shine on the bad. As a leader of a group organization we often get looked at like the sun,we often are compared to the sun. We are over looked and took for granted by others. But there is one thing we must remember just like the sun when we really shine,we must spread our Ray’s on the good and the bad so everything can grow.

So Boss Ladies Let’s Grow Our Companies!

1st Day Of Shopping

1st Day of Christmas

Shopping

By Rebecca Davis 12/1/18

The first day of shopping should be a trial run. Dont go into it thinking your going to accomplish it by getting everything for everyone. You could say the first day of shopping is like window shopping. Sales will change ,new stock will come in and new discoveries will happen.

To take some of the pressure off of you while shopping this season follow some of these basic rules.

1. Make a list and budget and really stick to it!

2. Make a Shopping Rule

A Shopping Rule? What is that you’re wandering ,well a shopping rule is maybe the important people in your life will only get 3 gifts max . An example of this is one expensive gift ,and one budget gift under $50 and one stocking stuffer. Or another example is you will get the important people in your life what they ask for,and you will get other people like friends/coworkers and church members or customers a set amount giftcard/or gift certificate.

2. Make a list of who you are Shopping for. Dont add to the list either. Make a list check it twice before you go Shopping. When making a list dont feel pressure to please and show off. For example you want to flaunt like King Tutt and write checks your butt cant cash to show off to neighbors and coworkers. Dont do it! This only adds to your debt . Only buy for those who you love and for those who have given to you. Dont feel pressure to please others.

Rebecca’s Advice, Buying to earn people’s approval or affection only backfires on you. The next month that person will probably not appreciate what you have given them and you will be stuck with the bill and debt and heartache. I will post on this matter in more detail later.

3. Navigate where you want to shop,this will save you time and gas.

Keep in mind what favorite Shopping Mall you want to go to.

Navigate and plan it will save you time. And ask what time certain stores will be opening and closing for holiday hours.This will prevent you from rushing through your selections.

4. Get the people on your lists, skin tones,dress sizes, and clothing sizes and styles. Along with there ages. Maybe you want to get a relative’s child a gift,and maybe you remember them as a 10 year old but in reality they are 14. Gift appropriations. Know and realize who you are buying for.

Rebecca’s Advice if you have a large family get family gifts everyone will enjoy like popcorn makers ,icecream makers ,games etc..

Dont Impulse Buy

Dont waite to order gifts online because some can take up to 2weeks to arrive .

Rebecca’s Advice

Do look at the size charts when ordering online. Different sizes and types are measured differently from foreign countries.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY SHOPPING
