Ways to Stay Productive

Hello my fellow followers!

 

I am back on this page to share with you another post for my blog.  So I wanted to do a personal development piece because I find that very important.  How many of you guys know the importance of staying productive throughout the whole week? It is very important because if you are a goal slayer like me, then you should understand the importance of being productive and on top of your A game!  Here are some ways to staying productive .

 

  1. Write down your goals down; whether you are typing it on the computer or writing them down.  Make sure you are ahead of the ball game to what you want to achieve 
  2. Meditate and pray about what it is that you want to accomplish in life
  3. If your job doesn’t require a lot of work (like mine for instance) and you aren’t that busy, work on some of your goals at work.  I always blog when I’m at my desk and I’m not that busy.  I work on interview questions or new book projects.  That way I will have those tasks knocked out the way.
  4. Stay focused! That’s the important part! In order to succeed at what your goals are, you must first stay focused and don’t allow distractions to get you off track!

Five Ways to Motivate Yourself

Sometimes finding the right motivation can be hard.  For instance, getting up in the morning is one of the hardest for me.  But what get me motivated is knowing that I have new opportunities to look out for everyday.  It’s either get up or don’t go to work (I can’t afford to loose money)  There has to be some great tools you use to motivate yourself.  Here are five ways you can stay motivated!

 

  1. Play Your favorite music on your phone or on the radio.  Music can be great therapy when you feel like you are down in the dumps or you just don’t feel like doing anything.  If you have planned your goals for the rest of the year, then maybe getting through your day would be some quick tunes in your ear.  What is your favorite song that you have on repeat? (I know you have about a few, because I surely do!)
  2. Write down the reason why you started in the first place!  If you have a dream or a goal that you are trying to achieve, then ask yourself what made you start? Was it because you are a single mother with kids and you want them to become better than you or you have a whole lot of people counting on you? Whatever it is, write it down, meditate on it for a few minutes and get to work!
  3. Your haters! Of course they should motivate you because they are the ones who talk down on you and they definitely don’t want to see you prosper in life.  So proving them wrong is great motivation! Don’t give up and give them the benefit of the doubt!
  4. Self-encouragement.  When no one else is rooting for you or encouraging you, then it’s your job to motivate your own self.  Not everyone will do that, so it’s very important that the only person you rely on is yourself.
  5. Last, but not least reward yourself! After all of the hard work that you have put into the day of achieving all of your goals and building networking relationships with other business-minded people, it’s time to relax, pump the brakes and treat yourself to something nice.  After all, you deserve it!

 

Author, Singer, Songwriter Talks about Upcoming New Book ‘Guide Me Home’

 

Ana Gibson is a Professional singer, songwriter and the 2018 Award- Winning Fiction Author.  She has published already two books and is about to release her third book “Guide Me Home,” that will be published in October.  

 

“As I learn myself more, I’m also being intentional about bringing others along with me to begin to understand what it means to recognize ourselves—flaws and all—and to grasp a hold of the version we desire to be.”

 

Tell us about your journey as an author

AG: I started writing fiction at the age of 14. I didn’t get serious about self-publishing until I turned twenty-five. That’s when I released both books, My Brother’s Secret 1 & 2. Writing has always been a creative outlet for me since I could remember. I believe one of the first books I’ve ever read was “The Skin I’m In,” by Sharon Flake. And from there, I was fascinated with story-telling. Over time, I challenged myself to learn how to write and write better—the formatting, plots, character arcs, scenery, deep point of views, etc, which gives me all the confidence today to put out Guide Me Home. This is my BEST work to date, and it’s completely different from any other story I’ve written. It’s an Inspirational Romance—borderline, Christian Fiction (Got too much cursing in it to be officially qualified as that LOL) Looking back on all of the stories I’ve done, reminds me of how much I’ve grown as a writer and the evolution shows, even from my previous two books that I have out.

My journey is still writing itself, but I can say that right now, where I am, I couldn’t be happier. I’m definitely not where I used to be and I’m certainly looking forward to where I’m going.

 

So, you have written other books in the past. What genre are they?

AG: The other two novels are considered Urban Dramas.

The title is really catchy. How did you come up with the title?

AG: Guide Me Home came about when I was watching Tyler Perry’s, “Temptation: Confession of a Marriage Counselor.” The end credits were scrolling by and for once, I was actually paying attention to them. One of the songs listed was called “Guide Me Home” and that’s when it hit me. I was like, ‘that’s the name of the book.’ It makes all the sense in the world.

3D Mockup-front.png

When writing this book, what were your inspirations behind it?

AG: The book started off with me just wanting to write something similar to what Tyler Perry did when he released Good Deeds. So, it was originally going to be talking about homelessness and helping those in need, but after three years of revisiting the manuscript and the need to feel connected to it, it shifted into something more than just homelessness. Its theme is on the topic of Childhood Emotional Trauma and its effects of it into adulthood. I think many of us, on some level, will and can find ourselves in the storyline. When I did my research on what Childhood Emotional Trauma was, it blew my mind away. The things I found, had me nodding in agreement because I could see myself or someone else. This helped me to also write my character’s, Devin and Faith, better because they suffered greatly behind this particular issue. It’s a subject that’s rarely discussed and if you were to ask someone if they knew what it was, 9 times out of 10, they would not know unless you went down the list of symptoms.

 

It’s a great mental health piece, especially advocating for emotional health in African-American men. So that’s where the biggest inspiration came from—just learning about what that looks like amongst many other things and being able to put it into story form.

 

As a published author, what challenges do you find? (If any)

AG: In the beginning, when I first considered publishing my stories, I didn’t understand how much work I needed to put behind it, like focusing on your target market, making necessary edits, saving money to be able to take care of the small stuff, marketing and promotion etc. So, the first two novels didn’t work out so well, but with Guide Me Home, I’m revisiting those lessons and applying them to this particular project which seems to be helping. A lot of preparation has gone into making this book a potential bestseller. With God, all things are possible. I’m claiming it.

 

Let’s talk about your Book Launch event for next month. How long did it take for you to plan the event?

AG: I started planning for the book launch sometime in December of 2017. Everything I do has to make sense and be done with quality and with order. So far, it has been a solid nine months of planning for the big day. I have quite a few things happening that I don’t think has really ever been done for a book launch party. I’m excited about it.

 

What makes this event stand out than any other book launch events?

AG: I think the biggest thing that stands out for this event is the fact that I’m including a one act play; where I have a few people acting out a scene from a chapter from the book to give people a visual of what they’re about to read. I have not heard or seen that done before. Also, most authors are not singers. I am. I have written a song for the book, (soundtrack single) which I will be performing on that day as well. It’s called ‘Thankful.’ It’ll be available when the pre-order drops.

 

Promo 4

I find it amazing that you are having the event on your birthday! How amazing!

AG: Yes! My birthday is actually the 26th of October but it falls on a Friday, so I chose the 27th because you know most people are available on weekends. LOL But I’m including my birthday because this is a major thing for me. I’ll be turning 31. When I turned 30, I told myself that I have to make this decade count, and doing this book and launch is a part of that declaration. So yes, I get a two for one deal.

 

What do you want readers to take away when reading your book?

AG: This is kind of a loaded question. Hmm. I want people to take away that no matter the adversities, the situations or circumstances standing against you, that there is a power within that is ready and willing to help you overcome. I want people to know that in life, it’s important to have the right people around you, especially when facing difficult and dark times and to understand how important Faith, Grace, and Forgiveness is to one’s healing.

 

I was looking on your website and I see that you have a book launch team for your new book. Tell us more about that.

AG: My Launch team is pretty cool. It’s about fifteen of us total. I decided to create a launch team for this book because I understand that I cannot do all of this by myself. It can get pretty stressful. It takes a village to really make something successful. Ooo that rhymed. But anyway, I can post and shout to the mountains all day long about the book, however, people get tired of hearing it from just one person, right? So why not include others who equally believe in what I’m doing to help push the product to the masses? And that’s what the team is all about. They’re helping me to succeed because they believe in the story just as much as I do.

Do you have any goals for the book? Media appearances? Interviews? Book tours?

AG: Yes. I definitely have plans to market and promote to local news stations, do podcasts interviews, blog interviews and hopefully reach two national TV shows like The Real and Sister Circle. Book tour is definitely in the works all along the east coast. And if things go right, maybe a stage a play or movie deal.

 

Being an author can have its ups and downs. What do you believe is the best way to remain humble as an author when things can be challenging?

AG: Best way to stay humble is to always know you have more growing and learning to do. You’re never done evolving or expanding in your writing. Something or someone new always comes along and can easily take your spot. In the words of Kendrick Lamar “Sit down, be Humble.” Reality is, things can go either way.

 

Where do you see yourself five years from now? Ten years from now?

AG: Five years from now, I see myself growing and being able to build an empire from this book alone. Ten years, maybe be on the same caliber of Oprah or somebody.

 

Who are some of your favorite authors?

AG: I don’t have many, but I would say Eric Jerome Dickey and Devon Franklin. That could change later, though.

 

How can readers connect with you? How can they pre-order your new book?

AG: Readers can connect with me by visiting my website at www.officialanagibson.com. All of my social media buttons are available on there. Guide Me Home pre-orders will be available September 12, 2018 wherever books are sold. Official release date is October 22, 2018.

REST, RENEW & RECHARGE YOURSELF!

Ah! when was the last time you took more than a few moments to rest from the daily pulls of life?  Seriously the demands of life here on earth in the current times we live in can place a strain on even the strongest people we know.  God never intended us to get so busy with the affairs of our lives that we never take the time to rest in the most sincere yet simplest forms of relaxation. When was the last time you took a long-winded walk around your neighborhood or local park just to do so? If your response is two weeks ago or longer – you may not be resting intentionally in order to renew yourself for your best interest and those family members and loved ones who are counting on you to live a long life. I happen to love running, cycling and live a very active lifestyle that also involves caring for my two daughters but even with my active lifestyle and as a vegetarian – I recently heard the Holy Spirit whisper Rest, Renew & Recharge! You see in the beginning when God completed creation in 6 days, he rested on the 7th day (Genesis 2:2). Even the Most High God knows we all need rest for he created rest. 

If I am being totally transparent, as a single mom – the word rest has always sounded a bit foreign to me because I used to believe I needed to complete a majority of my long list of action items before resting. Perhaps you too have an extremely busy lifestyle that involves working full-time, caring for your loved ones and quite possibly your parents.  Listen, Jesus knows all the past, present and future demands you will ever face but in order to Renew – you must first find Rest. Your mind, heart, blood pressure and body will all thank you in the long run! Do not wait until you are faced with a health scare before you take the necessary rest you need. Consider good rest will lead to the re-establishment of your health in Christ Jesus! While this may be easier said than done, if you lead a busy lifestyle – make sure you seek the Lord’s help in showing you how to rest. One simple way I have found rest is by purposely leave my cell phone downstairs during my much needed rest period. Yep – I simply place my device in silent mode and disconnect from the world to avoid unnecessary interruptions. Our bodies are not electronic devices powered by batteries intended to operate in non-stop mode, No! we are limited human beings created by an unlimited God so rest is found first in our Heavenly Father. 

So here’s to your goal of Recharging your body, mind and spirit. To Recharge simply means to regain energy or spirit! To fulfill all the things God has purposed us to do in the earth, we must regain energy expended during the course of our daily demands. What I know for sure is that my daughters are depending on the best version of me to take care of them. I simply cannot give them that best version unless I intentionally press pause on the pressures of this world, renew my mind in Christ Jesus by getting the much needed rest the Father intends for me to have.  Likewise you cannot be superwoman or superman to anyone while you are exhausted from the cares and demands of society.  Remember we are reminded in Matthew 11:28 “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Here are a few simple ways to add relaxation back into your daily routine:

Unplug your phone for an hour; Grab your journal, favorite cup of tea and sit outside for 30 minutes while you write a letter of gratitude for the many blessings you already have

Schedule a 1 hour massage which can help to relieve tense muscles.

 Research shows those who intentionally unplug by resting purposefully are more productive in fewer hours than those who do not. 

May we find comfort in Psalms 23:2 “He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams” (NLT).  I am standing in agreement with you as you Rest, Renew and Recharge for God’s glory!  Remember, you were fearfully and wonderfully made for such a time as this!

Strength for the Storm

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” – Isaiah 40:29-31

Weekly, if not daily, people continue to tell me how strong and courageous I am. I normally smile and nod but the truth is – I once had trouble believing.  

For a couple of years, my overall strength waned. More times than I care to admit, I secretly would tell myself that I was not strong and I was not courageous no matter what I was told. I felt my physical and mental state proved it. There were mornings I couldn’t walk two feet, days where I cried and sulked in my tears and moments where I felt like my entire world was over.

That attitude caused me to reject every encouraging word I received. It caused me to think, “If I was so strong then why can’t I or why am I.” It was a battle I faced for many years until one day I began to pray.

Lord, help me to believe. I don’t see the strength they see. I don’t feel strong. I feel frail and fearful. I need you.

As a result, God blessed me with three things:

  • Strength
  • Peace
  • Community

Strength – In Psalms 73:26, it reads, my flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. God strengthened me as I could not strengthen myself. He gave me the perseverance, reinforced my endurance and continues to make me stronger. Through him I am strong.

Peace – In John 14:27, it reads, Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. He gave me peace. The peace I needed to withstand the storm. No matter what the doctors said, I found myself at peace. My mental wasn’t as disturbed as it once was and I was finally able to pray and not worry.

Community – God assembled my village. He reassured me that I could accept the encouragement from family and friends. This included – A husband that would perform countless physical and emotional acts. A father who would uplift me when I couldn’t uplift myself. A mother and a grandmother who would pray with and for me. A brother and a sister who would encourage me on a daily basis. A best friend/brother that would pour spiritual life into me. Two beautiful cousins that would physically support me when I couldn’t physically do for myself. This was my village and this village played a part in my strength.

Over the years my attitude changed. I now felt like I could conquer the world. It wasn’t over for me.

I don’t know what you’re going through. Maybe you’re still waiting for him to bless you with the strength to fight your own personal obstacle(s). Perhaps you’re where I was years ago – struggling and needing God to strengthen you. Whatever it is just know that the trials and tribulations are only temporary. He will provide you with whatever it is you need to get through. Try not to give up! He loves you and he cares.

When Preparation Meets Opportunity

When life takes a sudden turn; an unexpected loss of a love one, loss of job, divorce/relationship problems, health issues, and the list goes on…. We are quick to ask, why God, and why me? What am I going to do? We panic! We get scared. We suddenly feel alone,  like our world has ended.

unnamed

It’s not always easy, nor is it our first thought.  But, I challenge you, when unwanted circumstances arise, pause… and see what God is saying?  Trust me, it’s not easy, I know! When I am faced with adversity, the first thing I always hear is the Holy spirit saying is: “Just trust me!”

You have to remind yourself of His faithfulness. Hebrews 11:1, now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Reactivate your faith and begin to speak the goodness of God into your life, give him glory during the storm. It’s not easy, but you’ve got to fight your way to victory! Put on the full armor of God; the helmet of Salvation, the breastplate of Righteousness, the belt of Truth, walk in the sandals of Peace, and shield yourself with the sword of faith.

Well, how do I do that, you might be asking?

You have to declare His promises daily, speak it, cover yourself in His Word. After you have declared it, begin to see it coming to pass. Ask God to renew your heart and mind daily, well what does that mean? Ask Him to give you a clear mind and heart, to take away all of the negativity, to silence the tongue of the enemy so that you can hear His voice and His voice alone.

Think about all that could come from losing your job, yes it seems as if things are not going to be taken care of, but God is a faithful God. He’s not going to leave you nor forsake you. You have to know, that God did not bring you this far, to only bring you this far…. There’s an opportunity brewing with your name on it, it took losing the job for God to prepare you in this season for what He has that’s greater. It aligns with the desires of your heart and the plans He has for you. Think about it, it’s what you’ve been praying for. (smile)

Had it not been for your marriage/relationship being tested, your strength and faith would not have been challenged and you would not be discovering a new you or growing with your mate and falling in love daily reaching new heights together as one. It brought you closer together, it made you/them see your faults and amid all of that drama, you fell in love again, you discovered that you never knew a love like this. The silence, the distance, the argument was preparing you for what’s yet to come. Strengthening you to build a business together, showing you how to build a home and not just have a house, preparing you for the love of a new addition to your family, teaching you how to handle one another in love and respect. It was part of the plan for the next level in your life, the new beginnings…

unnamed (1)

When things suddenly happen, sometimes we just have to accept it and force ourselves to see the good over the bad. When the enemy comes in like a flood, trust that God will raise a standard against it. However, everything is not always the enemy, it may just be part of the plan to grow you, to push you, to make you better, to allow you to see yourself, or to allow you to see God and give Him the opportunity to move.

You have to have faith in the middle of failure TD Jakes

unnamed (2)

During adversity, look at it as God preparing you for what’s next. He has you in solitaire so that you can hear His voice and this time, move as He says to move. Allow His word to be a lamp onto your feet and to direct your path. Psalm 119:105

The next time you find your back up against the wall, I encourage you to embrace the bad and know that it is for your good. Take a deep breath and follow the steps below so that you can hear God’s voice, not your own, nor the enemies, as you are being prepared for your next opportunity.

When Preparation meets Opportunity

Five Days of Preparation

(New Job, Promotion, Relationship, Marriage, Kids, Finances, Strength, Health, Friends, etc.…)

  • Day 1: Stop! Breath in, exhale…. What is God saying? Tune everything out, get into your quiet place and listen for His voice. Don’t request anything, don’t complain about anything, just listen…. Don’t move, until you have heard the voice of God! Not your own voice, not the enemies, but the voice of God!

Psalms 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God

  • Day 2: Now apply what the Lord has given you on Day 1. For me, He just kept saying to trust Him, whenever fear or doubt set in, I softly repeated, Lord I trust you! I made it a part of my day to continuously say, as I walked, as I sat at my home desk, as I worked on my plan, driving home, in my room, while praying…. Lord, I trust you!
  • Day 3: What are your desires/vision/dreams? What do you want?? Ask yourself, is it really what you need…Write them out… I specifically wrote out everything in a job that I wanted. I was very detailed and specific, I didn’t just express my desires about the type of work I wanted to do, but also the co-workers, Boss, atmosphere, office space, pay…. EVERYTHING! After my request where made known, I still said now God, not my will, but yours!

Habakkuk 2:2 Then the LORD replied: “Write the vision and make it plain!

  • Day 4: PRAY!  You must believe in His promises! Go over your desires/wants/dreams/vision…find scriptures and pray over what you have written, speak it, believe in your heart, and trust God, knowing that if it’s part of His Will and plan for your life, nothing is impossible, it will come to pass! Consider it done, In Jesus Name! Faith walk…

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

  • Day 5: Claim it, envision it…start seeing yourself doing it, and just begin to thank Him daily! What you speak has power! Speak life into everything that you are preparing for! Eventually, your preparation will meet the opportunity!

Mark 11:23 Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will.

1 Thessalonians 5: 18 that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.

As you patiently wait on God, begin to thank Him! Start preparing for what’s next to come. May your prayers be answered, and the desires of your heart come to pass according to His plan, His Will, His purpose for your life.

Rejoice! The new job is coming, the marriage/relationship will be restored, your children will rise above and find order, your finances will increase, your heart will be healed, your body will be healed, your mind will be healed, you will be the next TESTIMONY!

P.U.SH. Through it All!: Take it to the next Level

image1 (3)

Are you feeling stuck? I encourage you to PUSH yourself into the next level. Sometimes, we’re waiting on everyone else to move, and the hold up is ourselves. We’re waiting on the sign from God, the unexpected phone call, the surprising email or text message, that’s going to change everything. Not realizing, that we have everything we need right in front of us.

All we need to do is PUSH our selves into the next level. Try something different, go a little further, think outside the box. Maybe it’s your prayers, nothing is moving in your life because your prayers are the same, you have learned how to recite them daily quite nicely, saying the same thing every morning, every night. I challenge you to PUSH! Change your prayers up, start declaring things through your prayers, stop asking and start thanking, change the times you pray, increase your prayer times, get bolder!

Doing the same thirty minute workout? Is it working? I challenge you to PUSH! Increase your days, increase your times, increase your steps, try a new workout. Drink more water, eliminate sweets. PUSH!

Working on a master plan? Want things to change at work? Want to own your own business one day? Want to start a ministry? Then what are you doing? Are you thinking about it, or are you going forward with it? I challenge you to PUSH! Change your way of thinking, and start doing! Create the business plan. Work on that promotion, present new ideas, start the ministry, you already have the tools, it’s in your daily habit…. PUSH!

I dare you, no I challenge you, to PUSH yourself into a new level today!

Bee Yourself!

20161020_102142_001-1

I saw this cute little necklace where I work at and I’m not a fan of bees, but the phrase underneath was touching.  I had to have this necklace in remembrance that we need to “bee” ourselves!

What is the point of trying to become someone else?  God created each and every one of us in His own image.  Have you ever tried to fulfill someone else’s dreams or tried to be someone else because of the better progress they are making in life? Well the most important thing is to never copy someone else’s dream or their image.  Learn to live for us because we were all made equal.

You are an authentic person who has their own dreams and goals to be filled.  I remembered when I wanted to fit in with the crowd so bad that I would join different groups on social media to feel that security.  Every since high school I would always try to fit in with the crowd.  I wasn’t popular and wanted that attention so bad.  Even though I hung out with a different crowd each week, I still didn’t felt like I belonged.  I never really had real friends growing up and I wanted to fit in with others to make me feel good about myself.

But I wasn’t listening to God’s voice when He told me that I was born to stand out.  I’m finally getting it, so now I just stay in my own lane and do my own thing.  I’m “beeing ” myself without trying to be like other women.  So stand up and stand OUT!  Bee Yourself because everyone else is already taken!  Create your own identify so others can see the real you!  I remember one of my Instagram followers post stating that the best brand is yourself.  That is very true!  I created my personal brand called “IAMPATRICERIVERS” From Pain to Blessings.  It’s about me and the struggles I’ve been through throughout the years.  I want to encourage and empower other women that they don’t have to look at their past struggles or hurt when they can start their life brand new and be the person God has called them to truly be.

7 Reasons Why Life is Amazing

We all have one life to live, so why not live it to the fullest?!  Here are some great reasons on why life is so darn amazing!

  1. Living up to your Dreams!  You are finally getting the chance to do what you have always dream of as an entrepreneur or a visionaire.  Take one step closer to your dreams and then stand on top of the world!
  2. Doing what you Enjoy the most!  Just like what I’m doing now; writing on a motivational piece that will empower you all that are reading 🙂 Without life, I wouldn’t be able to do just that!  Whatever you enjoy doing in life, JUST DO IT! Whether it is walking your dog every day, mowing the lawn, surfing or maybe making jewelry, continue to live up to your potential and enjoy your hobbies!
  3. Having Freedom! Other countries doesn’t have this type of privilege just like in the United States, but we all have the freedom and luxury to do what we want to do (just don’t break any laws doing it lol) and enjoy them to the fullest!  Don’t you just love being free and going outside to smell the roses anytime that you want to?
  4. Being Sociable!  You can go to your favorite spot every weekend and just have a great time with friends or family.  Living your life while being sociable and having a great time! Life can be just that good!
  5. You are still alive! What a great reason this is to why life is so amazing! You always hear on the news that innocent lives are taken away from people that haven’t committed any crime or hasn’t done anything to get caught up with the wrong crowd.  From children to adults, lives are taken away every second.  So be grateful that you are still alive and that you still have breath in your body! Life is too short so never take it for granted!
  6. Accomplishing your goals! Just like your dreams, you can achieve all of your goals one day and one step at a time!
  7. Create Memories! What type of world would you live in if you couldn’t create any memories? Create special moments of your life and each year and live up to your expectations in life.  Whether they are bad memories, sad memories or good memories, it’s still part of your amazing life!

So now do you see why your life is so amazing? 🙂 Live to Learn and Learn to Live!

life is amazing
