Be Empowered ~ Part II

My Mother and I were talking yesterday about motivation. She said, "whether you do the wrong thing for the right reason or the right thing for the wrong reason, you're still lying to yourself." Ah, that mother-wisdom! Don't you love it! Sometimes it can really hit you hard and make you think.

My Mother's words are a perfect introduction for Part II of the Be Empowered series:

"Get Clear About What's Driving You"

Reflect back on the seven environments mentioned in Part I last week. Consider your motivation in each area: Is it to move toward something positive or are you trying to runaway from a negative? Are you in a relationship because of love or because you don't want to be alone? Do you say "yes" because you genuinely want to be of service or because you want people to like you?

If fear is driving you about a particular situation, face it. Be honest with yourself. Ms. Nichols suggest that you write down up to four of the worst case scenarios. Then, for each one, write down how you would "bounce back" if they happened. To the best of your ability, base your responses on logic rather than emotion. Then, "watch the fear evaporate." :-)

~Be blessed my friends and "get clear about what's driving you."

I’m Trinka Polite! Georgia native! Aunt Extraordinaire (at least I think so)! Lover of divinely delicious food! Servant of God and I gratefully accept my calling as counselor, poet, and speaker. My mission? 

As a counselor, it is to empower you to access your full potential and live more authentically!

As a poet, it is to share words to inspire love, deliverance from hurtful situations and encourage a renewed relationship with God.

As a speaker, it is to provide a dynamic experience which will actively engage you and your group in learning and growing.

My professional background includes over 14 years as a Career Counselor providing education planning and career guidance.  I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia and National Board Certified Counselor with a Master’s degree in Psychology.  My publications include After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey and Pain is Fertile Ground—poetry collections focused on spiritual awakening and growth.

On a more personal note, the southern lady that I am loves to cook (have you seen my Pinterest board?) and have fun with my family!  Are there any two things that bring more joy to a G.R.I.T.S. (Girl raised in the south)? Lol 

I hope we stay connected because new ventures are on the way to enlighten your mind and to partner with you to chart a course for your success!  

Peace & Blessings!
