Notes - My actions are a result of what's in my heart. - Inorder to have a quality life, we are to have a quality mind. - We are responsible for the stewardship of our minds. It's our place to...

"But this I say, He which sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully." - 2 Corinthians 9:6 Your time, your presence, a listening ear, guiding advice, an uplifting word, an offer to help, an honest conversation --- these have the power to change a person's life forever, not because of an immediate "boom!" impact, but because of the soothing "I am there for you" effect imprinted on the recipient. A few months ago during my visit to Cameroon (photo above), I noticed in the villages that offering an older relative (especially grand... Continue reading

"A certificate does not make you certified. Attitude, performance, commitment to self and team — these and a certificate make you certified." - Author Unknown Life is about growth, change, experiencing new things, reaching for higher heights, expanding our horizons, and celebrating milestones. With these, comes a need to swap old habits for new ones. On the journey of success, the opening up of new avenues requires the leader to step up several notches in self-improvement so as to sustain the growth they're experiencing personally and in business. How about we make August The Month of Improvement, where our goal... Continue reading

If not, please LIKE us and expect to read at least 4 of them every week to help strengthen different aspects of the success experience.

Help #endFGM NOW Let's redefine what it means to be a woman ... being a woman should NOT be about how much pain we're able to endure and still wear a smile, not about maintaining silence during moments of extreme personal challenges, it's not about giving until we drain the life out of ourselves, we don't have to be mutilated to be women. We shouldn't have to earn our womanhood by scoring high A's in 'Suffering'. A woman should allow herself to be human, to follow her dreams, she should be fulfilled in all aspects of her beautiful existence. She... Continue reading

"Female Genital Mutilation or “cutting” is a gross violation of the human rights of girls and women." - Women Are Core I very much look forward to being on Rockers Corner Radio Show with Sista Dee this coming Tuesday 07/21/15 to discuss an important topic: Female Genital Mutilation. Why? Because somewhere, at this moment, is a child, a young girl shedding silent tears, weeping bitterly because she's been violated, betrayed by the ones who should be protecting her. She's been circumcized. She's one of millions who were never given a choice, victims of a barbaric traditional (in some cases religious)... Continue reading

We've all probably heard the saying that success does not come to us, we go for it. One of the ways to go for what we desire is to ask for it. Successful leaders develop a habit of opening their mouths to ask - for a favor or referral, a sale, feedback or even advice. Being able to communicate and express ourselves to those around us is very important for growth and success. A leader does not sit back and wait, or expect people to 'just understand'. A leader gets proactive in achieving their goals --- persisting, insisting, demanding, asking.... Continue reading

Today's my birthday. It's a special day. On this 07/07/2015, I turn 40. You know, I believe there's a part in us that's somewhat weary of growing older. But when you've lived life consciously, and given of it freely from the depths of your heart, years gone by become bright stars in the sky --- merging with the light of beautiful days, reappearing in those clouds of not-so-bright evenings - guiding, teaching, revitalizing. I am so thankful to God for His amazing blessings and sustaining grace. I am thankful that even during those moments when I was brought to my... Continue reading

Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity." - John F. Kennedy Good morning Face2Face family. How is your Saturday looking so far, what do you have planned for the day? I hope and pray that your weekend is productive and fun. I was awake by 5.00am this morning. I spent some quiet time meditating, doing my daily devotionals, while looking forward to the sunrise. Then I went walking at nearby Salem Baptist walking trails. It was so beautiful and calm out there.... Continue reading

"Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation." - Michael Jordan Have you ever questioned your choices, wondered if you were on the right path, felt like giving up, been tempted to throw in the towel? Do you know that these feelings are normal? Society teaches us to suppress our feelings and to be ashamed of the somewhat "abnormal" ones. But as one grows through life, one realizes that suppressing feelings and emotions is actually detrimental because they always resurface soon after, and we find ourselves fighting the same losing battle over and over. So what do we do?... Continue reading

“A single conversation across the table with a wise person is worth a month's study of books” - Chinese Proverb My uncle works at the United Nations tribunal in Arusha, Tanzania. During my April visit to Cameroon, I had the chance to spend time with him in Yaounde (capital of Cameroon). We talked about the people of Tanzania and their culture, the differences and similarities between Tanzanians and our Cameroonian society. By listening to my uncle and asking questions, I got to learn about a country I knew very little about ... it almost felt like I had travelled to... Continue reading

"If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude." - Colin Powell Do you get excited about photoshoots? Those who love taking photos, probably do; others not so much. I personally am borderline --- I do, and then I get nervous wondering how the photos are going to turn out. Today I had one of those scheduled here in Atlanta --- the photographer was Richard of richardanthonyevans.com. It was my first time working with Richard. I am particularly excited about this photoshoot... Continue reading

"Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit." - E. E. Cummings Hello Face2Face with Success readers. I hope you are having an excellent day. Let's talk spontaneity! As a writer, one keeps a close eye on performance. I continue to be very appreciative of how an article I wrote almost 5 years ago is still widely read today. I remember very clearly the day this article was written and published on DUNIA Magazine. It was on a Saturday morning in October of 2010. Less than 2 hours... Continue reading

Ever so often, one reads a piece of writing that stikes a chord. Here is one I read on Facebook this morning posted by a sister Belle Sonkey that I thought to share with you. It speaks to the importance of true friendships. In the qualities of an Elizabeth one can understand why finding a true friend could be quite rare, yet precious. I hope you enjoy reading it as well. " Who is my Elizabeth? When Mary, was given the biggest news of her life, she had no husband to confide in. Her first instinct after her visit from... Continue reading

It's Valentine's Day! Happy lovers' day to you and yours. I was reflecting on the significance of this day. It dawned on me that actually everyday should be Valentine's Day, don't you think? --- days when we are loved, appreciated and celebrated. Also importantly, when we challenge ourselves to give love, respect and to honor the dignity of others. What makes a person deserving of our love? Simply because they are a child of God. I am learning that every body we come across deserves love - whether in our minds, they have earned it or not. In the home... Continue reading

January 31, 2015 news headlines: 'Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of late singer Whitney Houston, was found unconscious in her bathtub'.

Happy MLK day. As we honor Dr King today, I am reflecting on these words of his: "He who is devoid of the power to forgive, is devoid of the power to love." As leaders we are called to serve; service requires love, sacrifice & dedication. How high do you rank in your ability to tolerate & accommodate others' shortcomings - whether clients, business associates, team members or even family members? Dr Martin Luther King was great, not because he was flawless, but because of his ability to love self-lessly. He gave his all in serving his people. A Baptist... Continue reading

"If you're not listening, you're not leading. Instead, you are commanding and dictating --- it doesn't often work" Leadership in this day and time is not about an individual's dreams, or their personal plans and goals; it is about the successful implementation of an idea. And ideas are successfully implemented through people, by the effort of teams. Hence a successful leader understands the importance of teamwork. We build teams not by ordering people around, telling them what to do and forcing our expectations down their throats, but by inviting them to work with us, always being respectful of their opinions....
