Marriage is one of the toughest jobs to do, according to a friend, who has been married for twenty years. She went on to say it is harder than “picking cotton” and of course, I laughed out loud at the notion of marriage being that difficult. If anyone knows anything about picking cotton, it is extremely difficult and hard to manage and maintain. As a Life Coach whose clients are predominately female and married the issue of balancing work, family, and civic duties seems to be a driving force in our work together. Women who are working really hard to be their best at work and at home. However with the latest hacking scandal of Ashley Madison, I’m wondering what work are men doing to be their best selves.
One author recently wrote that this is a “wake up call for women” and I would like to add for men as well. Men who are bored, underwhelmed, checked-out, lonely, angry and those who feel entitled to have what they want and how they want it, find themselves seeking affection, pleasure and sensations outside of their marriage is in a crisis as well. This hack of Ashley Madison is our wake up call.
In my relationship series “ 6 Steps To Creating Lasting Intimacy”, I deal with the true nature of what is missing as it relates to a deeper connection. I’m not creating a one-stop shop fix it for marriage but I’m helping people start the process of asking for what they need within a healthy monogamous relationship.

Organizational leadership is serious business. Leaders impact the climate, culture and environment of their organizations. Organizational leadership behaviors have a direct influence on actions in the work environment that enable growth and change. Leading requires the use of a diverse set of communication techniques to deliver appropriate messages, solicit feedback, create readiness with a sense of urgency and motivate recipients to act. Leaders are responsible for communicating to the organization any new strategies or a new direction for the future. In order for leaders to get employees to participate and produce they must be able to trust you and your leadership style. Leadership style is a driving force for any organization. One of the more effective leadership styles is Transformational Leadership.
Transformational Leadership involves five key elements:
1. Coaching– as process of improving performance and developing synergistic relationship
2. Communication– delivering relevant information with regard to the organization.
3. Motivating– is the influence or drive that causes us to behave in a specific manner.
4. Rewarding– a compensation that recognizes employees for the right performance.
5. Promoting Teamwork– enable members working cooperatively with one another to achieve more than working independently.
To be an effective leader understand your leadership style and your leadership philosophy.
Do you have something you want to change or achieve in your life?
Maybe you’d like to…
Start a business
Find a new love
Get a new career (or a raise)
Get your children to behave better
Or something else
No matter what you’d like to change or achieve, the secret to success are the same…
Get clear. As specifically as possible, decide what you want. The more clear you are on what you want to have in your life, the more likely you are to achieve it.
Get perspective. Most people don’t tell anyone what they want or what they are struggling with and because of that they don’t get an outside perspective.
Get support. Very few people (if any) achieve anything great alone. Sports stars have teammates and coaches.
Be willing to ask the people in your life to support you.

Oprah has created a phenomenal eight-city tour this summer. Women and some men are filling stadiums to see and experience her and her team of self-help guru’s. Those who are in attendance are given an opportunity to bask in the Oprah glow for a weekend filled with empowering messages. The attendees are given gift bags and are guided to purchase additional resources in the merchandise area, so they can do the work beyond the weekend. Oprah has assembled a star studded team to drive the message home. The event is “life changing”. Oprah is challenging them to mind their “energy fields and their intentions” and she walks them through a worksheet given within the program and the women take time to fill out their life wheel /cycle. It is a powerful moment to witness the silence/stillness of these 20,000 seat arenas. Each person is wearing a special glow in the dark wrist band which illuminates the entire arena. People are mystified and teary-eyed. Winfrey knows what she is doing. Now, what is next? The weekend is over and the gift bag is emptied and what are people going to do with all they were given?
I Speak Life Coaching has created a powerful five-week audio “Unleashing The Power Within”. This online workshop will take you to the next phase of creating the Life You Want!!! It is free!!! No gimmicks. I will support the work that Oprah started.
Click on the video and get started today. You have the power to move your life forward. You do not have to do it alone.
Today, take a few moments to think about your life. In this fast paced world, where everything is available to us in an instant, it is getting harder and harder for us to sit with ourselves. Sit and let thoughts come through us and to us from a place of harmony and peace. If, we do contemplate sitting with ourselves we often times recognize how fast our minds are racing. We are always thinking about what needs to be done and what didn’t get done.
I would like to offer you this moment to listen to a powerful video on dreams and not giving up. If, you are the young student trying to figure it all out or the seasoned adult wondering where did all the time go. This video will motivate you to think big and dream big. It is never too late to start again and start a new. Never, give up on what you know in your soul that you must do. The world is waiting on you.
The world needs your gifts and talents. I know you might be in the middle of a divorce or a health scare or you are that artist trying to showcase your work, even so, we need you. You are waiting on you. The world needs you but you need you the most. Get up, shake yourself and let your wildest dreams come forward. Go for it!!!
We need your voice, gifts, talents and your dreams. You can manifest your hearts desire on today and let this video be the starting point to moving yourself forward. Process who you are and what you know to be true about you and move your feet and live your life. Live your life!!!
I want to mention, you will need some tissue because the video will awaken your true nature and you will shed a tear because your Truth is rising to the top.
Happy New Year, we are excited about what the future holds for you. you ready to move forward with the dreams and hopes you have set forth in the New Year? We here at I Speak Life Coaching would like to give you some simple tools to help you reach all of your goals.
Have you made any declarations for the New Year? Are you ready to thrive? Are you still fussing over those last 10 pounds? Are you still thinking about returning to school? Do you dream but cant seem to execute? Let me say, you are not alone.
In order for you to set the goals and make the declarations, you need a change of mind. This is the year of change, excited, love and expectation. In order for you to catch the wave and move in the right direction, you must change your mind.
You control what goes into your brain and what comes of of your brain. Put in good information and you get good results and the same is true for bad information. The work here is not just on the treadmill or on the business plan but it must involve a reprogramming of your mind.
The fight for greatness starts in the mind and then moves in the greater parts of our lives. You must take charge of what you are thinking and what you believe.
James Allen said ” as a man thinketh so is he”, that statement holds true today. When we begin to align our minds with our thoughts and actions, then we can accomplish all we desire and hope.
Your goals are attainable and you can past by those but in order for you to be apart of this new wave, then you must change your mind and also change your heart.
This living your best life stuff is not tougher than I thought it would be. There are days when I feel like I’m doing great work and then there are days when I stand in the mirror and ask myself, what in the world are you doing?
I’m sure you know the feeling of making promises to yourself and then breaking them – like I’m going to lose weight, ha, I’m going to clean out the garage, ha, I’m going to get more training and go for the promotion. Have you ever just felt stuck and unproductive?
No one informed me starting a business would be this challenging. I must confess, business ownership is not for the faint of heart. It is serious work and it pushes all of your buttons.
If you really want to know who you are, strike out on your own, all of who you are will be revealed. Personally, I’ve felt frustrated by the slow turning wheels of success. I sometime feel stuck in this rut and I too have to figure out how to get unstuck.
I made up my mind that failure is not an option. My week is full of glorious surprises and wonderful creations. I get up each day looking for the new thing or the new idea and get down in the dirt and work. The way in which I had to figure out this up and down game was to have my own set of beliefs and tools to help along the way.
There would be no more excuses. No more promises made and not keep them. I’m going to do whatever has to be done and no more complaining but push through till the end.
If you feel like you are stuck in a job, career, relationship, let me offer you up a few tips to help you keep it moving.
4 Tips To Help You Keep Moving:
Change Locations: Each morning I would be at the desk working looking out the same window. I realized that I needed to see people and hear certain noises. So, I get up, get out and change locations. I switch it up and break my routine. I pack up the lap top and leave my place and try not to be seduced by my favorite day time shows.
Get Inspiration: I’m a walker and I love to walk through new neighborhoods in the city. So, each day I find a new path for me to walk and explore.
It is so exciting to find that small business shop which I never noticed while in the car or discover a running creak in a certain tucked behind some dogwood trees. Inspiration can come from any source.
Do It Now: Tomorrow never comes. I would put off task until the next day. Well, I realized the week would have passed and I’m still not done what I promised myself. Do what needs to be done today. Tomorrow mind set is not for winners.
Seek Truth: If any of you are like me, I can spend an enormous amount of time alone. It is not good to have someone you do not check in with from time to time.
I have built my “truth” commission who tells me the truth and helps me grow in the most important areas of my life. Find you someone who you can be accountable to in this process.
I hope me sharing my journey to personal freedom has helped in anyway. Send me a note and let me know how you get unstuck.
