Morning Cup of Coffee: Transactions


A transaction is an exchange or interaction between people, this can be personal or in business. 

The beauty about transactions is each party bring something valuable to the partnership. Often times it is forgotten that an individual that is making a choice to be a part of the business transaction has a valuable product. In situations where someone yields to partner with an entity their value can be underestimated because the entity is pushing its own goals. Your personal goals may or may not line up with the personal goals of the partner but the partnership is still valuable. Being a partner does not mean that you should forget your goals to support the outcomes of the entity. Keep your goals before you and don’t loose yourself while supporting the entity.

In partnerships we make transactions with people daily. We enjoy the partnerships and transactions that are pleasurable and bring us little drama. We engage with those individuals, frequent their business, or remain in partnership because when we leave we typically leave with our peace intact.

However, there are the transactions and partnerships that we have to have daily that can unsettle us. We try to control the amount of cahos that enters our environment . The slightest variation to our frequency can send a vibration through us that can unbalance our day. It will cause the decisions we make to be determined by our mood.

The unpleasant transactions are the ones that reveal where you are in your growth. It will uncover your patience. It will reveal your immaturity. It will unveil your insecurities. Even though we try to avoid this area of of our lives it is important. It helps you take a true evaluation of where you are so that you continue to grow. 

Don’t run from the transactions, partnerships, or interactions that make you uncomfortable. Stay goal focused and face them so that you can be complete.

Morning Cup of Coffee: Cutman

                 WHO IN YOUR CORNER?

A cutman is a person responsible for preventing and treating physical damage to a fighter during the breaks between rounds of a full contact match such as a boxing, kickboxing or a mixed martial arts bout. Cutmen typically handle swelling, nosebleeds and lacerations.

Working as a cutman to treat the bleeding and swelling to a boxer’s face during a fight requires years of determination, training, and self discipline. The crude, but necessary, first aid a cutman applies in the 60 seconds between each round can make the difference between a win and a loss for a fighter.

đź’ŽI may not be a boxer but I have had some battles to fight. There is one particular person I have in my corner in between rounds who releases the swelling of some battles. This person is the most determined person that wills for me to win. They know that I need some emergency talking that cuts me. It doesn’t always feel good but they need me know that once they speak into me that it will help relieve the pressure that is necessary for me to get back in the ring. It is a fool who always walks alone. Who never allows the support of the right people to apply first aid in between the rounds of a fight. These cuts are crucial to being able fight with your eyes open or compromised by swelling. 

Unfortunately many people don’t have the necessary people in their corner. Relying on the inexperienced, or the flattering can  leave you scared and physically damaged. The inexperienced won’t challenge you and lack skills in relieving life pressures. They are distracting and when you are suddenly blind sided they offer you no real relief. The inexperienced could be the difference between a win and a loss. Having people that don’t challenge us to think about ourselves differently, to not allow us to stay in a current mindset, or a repetitive situation only keeps our eyes shut and unable to see. Who is your Cutman?

Morning Cup Of Coffee: Glass Houses

Perception: A way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something; a mental impression. 

Looking at a glass house you would think you can see everything that is going on in the home. You can see what is owned you can see what had been neatly and meticulously placed. You can see the colors that were chosen and the art that was selected and a room centered around one accent piece. The perception is that to have a house like this that the person has to have a level of wealth and with that wealth comes a level of freedom and happiness. However, what we can’t see is the pain, suffering or loss that the family may have endured to get there. We don’t see the struggle or maybe even know how the wealth was secured. 

As I was reflecting on a valley in my life I thought about how when I was in despair. The people I thought would understand didn’t. The place I thought I would find refuge I did not. How my provosts situation was the topic of so many and became public. So I struggled as the outside world looked at me in a glass house and whispered and not one person said a comforting word.

The perception that people may have of you is difficult to change. No matter how you may try to be your true self, your reinvented self the mental impression that individuals have made of you or what they believe you have or have gone through will not allow them to see you clearly. The clarification and the purification of who you are has to be what you believe. Sometimes we take on things because we think it’s the best we can have for ourselves because of an understanding that we believe about how we are perceived or because of how we perceive ourselves. This imprisons our freedom and we live in a cell of tears and shame. Past mistakes that still live in your present can be difficult to move beyond because you look at them everyday in your present. So you stand in your glass house seeing the world and the world sees you. But, you are afraid that if you do something different the glass is not strong enough to withstand the pressure and will break. Every time you think you’ve moved past it and have to revisit it, it is just a reminder of what happened. So you avoid life to avoid having to remember that moment. You avoid life so you can keep what is left together of your fragile heart. You feel the rejection isn’t worth the pain. You see every rejection as the root in what you are silently hurting from. You smile through the pain.  You press through the loss of time and you fight past the tears. We can see you because the glass is clear but where are you? 
Although outward perceptions are difficult to change. Don’t be afraid to allow yourself to heal past what you’ve been through. The perceptions of others that keep them at distance from you is their loss of knowing the unbreakable Diamond that you are. You perceive yourself to be good no matter the circumstance and do not settle.

Morning Cup of Coffee: Trailblazing Perserverance


Perseverance:Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.

đź’ŽPersevering through pain, disappointment, heartbreak, loses, failure, uncertainty and embarrassment is a part of the necessary growth process. You have to be tenacious enough that you won’t let anything or person stand in your way.

Although you have overcome many things, are strong, confident, kind, don’t accept no as your final answer, always wear a smile, have a big heart and are capable. You also know your weaknesses, areas that you need to improve, and accept careful constructive criticism well. Your self-awareness may make others uncomfortable. It may come off as conceited or arrogant. The person who is self-aware is confident in who they are because they know the work it took to overcome their fears. To be unapologetically you can be intimidating to some. It can make some feel inadequate because of your accuracy. 

Your very presence changes the atmosphere and it does stir up energy. That energy will be both positive and negative. It can make the insecure irrational when you walk in boldness. It can cause a disruption of frequency as you walk in authority. Although you may be misunderstood continue to command atmospheric change. Demand frequency to tune into you and cause vibrations that move mountains.đź’Ž

đź’ŽWhen are reaching for your goal, It doesn’t mean you won’t cry, or that it will be easy, but there is purpose to your pain. 

Even when friends are few and you may feel discouraged because you are walking alone. Leading will require you to be in front. When you feel tired from walking the foggy bridge over troubled water and it doesn’t seem worth it remember trailblazing isn’t easy but it will pay off.
