One of the best ways to protect your growth is by investing in yourself!
Invest physically, spiritually, financially and mentally.
What does it mean to invest in yourself? Well simply stated, it means to care more about your God-given purpose greater than the many life distractions that may come your way. Listen, God never said it would be easy but I do know from personal testimony that it is definitely worth it!
When you care more, you will invest in proper eating and exercise to perform at your very best. You will spend more time with Christ to understand your divine purpose. You will invest financially to receive the education necessary and you will take the time to invest mentally as what you think, you shall become.
When you know you are worth it, you stand a little taller and you also care just a little bit more.
INVEST WHERE NECESSARY!
If you are in need of more confidence, invest in it! Take a course that will help you get what you need!
I’ve decided to make it easier for you. It only cost $20 and requires you to show up and be ready to receive the tools and empowerment to take necessary steps to kickstart your confidence.

We are 6 months into the year and 6 more remaining.
How are your goals going for you? Are you hitting those milestones you set?
Statistics show many hit a plateau at the halfway point. Right before you hit the mile marker, only having 10lbs to your goal weight, gaining more clients, right before the business boost… the plateau comes and this post if for those who are experiencing this.
Here are 10 ways to revive your dreams and passions to have an even stronger back half of the year as you did in the beginning!
First please note,
“It is never too late or too soon to be true to yourself and to live your dream!”
Take the opportunity toREFLECT! Look back over your first half. Was it everything you hoped, planned, sought it to be? Celebrate your wins, and hone in on your opportunities. That’s right, celebrate your wins first! You got those 3 clients you said you would. You lost 15lbs vs 10lbs. You joined the support group you said you would or took the opportunity to travel a bit… whatever it is, celebrate the win you had, reflect on what could have been better and lets start moving forward.
Get Quiet. Find a place where there are no distractions or disturbance. Get in a seated comfortable position, close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly, deeply and in perfect rhythm. Doing this allows you to turn inward and hear clearly what God has for you to do going forward. We must learn to quiet ourselves so we can hear clearly. Sometimes our plans are not the plans God has for us and requires us to quickly change the direction we are going… do so! The reward of doing what HE wants vs. yourself will always be greater.
Turn within. Listen to the voice speaking within. Allow this voice to restore and revive your passions for life. Let it be the driving force of what to do next and be bold enough to activate your faith by putting action behind the voice. Know it is the God in you speaking louder than the you in the world. What will you do with it?
Say bye to the nay sayers. You are your only limit!!! —–> Stop sharing your eagle dreams with chickens. <—– click to tweet! They are not where you are. They will not understand your purpose for those specific actions and will only speak negatively to encourage you to go opposite of what you know you should be doing. Those who speak down on the things you do only do so because they were not brave enough to act upon the wild dreams God gave them. Say “boy bye” or “bye Felicia” and keep it moving!
Walk out the feeling. Yes… your intuition, God-voice may lead you down a different path that your first half vision and that’s ok. Follow the feelings. Your vision may change from success coach to teen coaching and you must follow it. Nothing is a coincidence… take those God-driven ideas and act upon them.
Challenge Yourself. Are you up for the challenge to revive? At times when stress enters our world, our passion begins to die but if we deal with our stress differently, we can allow the passion to live on. Welcome balance into your life. Do not become overly consumed with one thing… Give time to you, breathe more and challenge yourself to deal with it differently so you can continue this journey! Challenge yourself and when you hit a milestone celebrate you.
Get a mentor! We all need others. Find a mentor that will uplift, encourage and hold you accountable to completing the goals you set forth. Join a community of change agents and those with similar dreams so you can feed off their energy. Trust me, it works! Iron sharpens Iron.
Be a mentor 🙂 Yes… when we give, we receive in return that very thing we are searching for so help someone else out and watch it challenge you even more.
Be true to you! No one knows you better than YOU. Be true to who God created you to be. Don’t get caught up with what others are doing in the industry. There is only one you and the world needs your uniqueness!
Give thanks!Gratitude always reaps gratitude. When you receive the restoration to your dreams, vision, passions… give thanks to it! Be grateful of the answered prayers. Be grateful for those things you received in the first half of the year and the many great things to follow in the later half!
Be sure to share how you will revive your passions below!
I can speak from experience, when I share those things that I consider my goals, it seems I’m more prone to completing them. It shares as a level of accountability even if no one is saying anything to me. It is also considered to be a part of the “Law of Attraction” as what we put out, we can be sure to receive in return. So with that being said, what I share, opens the door of opportunity to assist the goals being accomplished.
You never know who is watching and with #PositiveVibesOnly believe that God strategically places people to cross your path at the right time in the right season. One of your goals may be to speak at an upcoming Women’s Conference. By sharing this as your goal publicly. someone may read it and extend the opportunity. #ijs
I dare you to try it!
SHARE your goals below and let’s become accountability partners. In the midst, you just may receive an opportunity or two.
One of the most powerful and motivational acts one can do is be a person who lives what they speak. A person who shows love through action, show trust through action, belief through action and being obedient to the direction and order God has for them through action.
You never know who you are inspiring through what you DO, not just what you say you are doing or what you will do. In the words of Nike, “just do it!”
As stated in the previous post, each month for 2016 will have a specific focus in order to #LiveIntentionally ! This month is all about wellness.
For January week 1 – It’s all about Mental Wellness
Mental Wellness is defined as “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”
With this definition, I will share tips each day this week that will help reduce the stresses of life and will help you work productively.
Today is all about breathing
Breathing is one of the quickest easiest ways to relax, release stress and gain clarity to become more productive.
“Slow, deep breaths can help lower blood pressure and heart rate . For the fancy noses out there, try pranayama breathing, a yogic method that involves breathing through one nostril at a time to relieve anxiety. The technique’s supposed to work the same way as acupuncture, balancing the mind and body (and possibly eliminating the need for a tissue).”
Try this today and share your experience. Remember, every tip ties back to Living Intentionally. When we take the time to just breathe, we give ourselves to enjoy more things in the moment. We open ourselves up to give our best selves and because of this, we will do things with intent that will cause our lives to blossom!
Breathing opens yourself to God’s blessings.
Job 33:4“The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”
Recognize the breath God has given you and live intently, on purpose and on fire for what HE has for your life!
Many Blessings to you and yours for the year of 2016 and beyond!!
It’s a New Year and another opportunity for you to live out your purpose! Being transparent, 2015 definitely had many more valleys than mountains but To God be the glory as it ALL works for the good of HIM!
This year, I have decided to live with intention and I want you to join me on this journey.
Each month I will focus on one specific area to live with intention. I believe if we take the opportunity to enjoy the moments, find purpose in it all and truly live with intention, we will find accomplish many more goals and truly live our best lives!
This is the opportunity to build a circle of accountability while being encouraged along the way with great tips from none other than Coach K!
Here are the focus for each month:
JANUARY – Wellness
FEBRUARY – Confidence
MARCH – Organization
APRIL – Clarity
MAY – Growth
JUNE – Self
JULY – Family
AUGUST – Learning
SEPTEMBER – Reflection
OCTOBER – Breathe
NOVEMBER – Giving
DECEMBER – Him
Take a minute or five or thirty and think about those things in 2015 you didn’t get the opportunity to finish or those things you wish you could do differently. Then, recognize since you are still living, you have the opportunity to turn them into real goals for 2016. Write them down, give a rough time frame, and begin to take action steps all while surrendering to Jesus, letting Him lead you. Let’s prayerfully take action and live intentionally. We can do this together with laser focus and I’m here to help encourage along the way with a specific focus each month.
So to kick it off… please be sure to join me starting January 4th to get tips and encouragement from me for Wellness! Let’s live with intention each and every step of 2016!
Today is the last Monday of 2015 and 2016 will be here in a few days! During this time many of us are planning our New Year Resolutions.
Many await the New Year to change those bad habits or embark on something new. The number one resolution is always to lose weight, get healthy and in shape and by February or March, those resolutions die. Even I have fallen into this resolution on more than one occasion. But this, I will follow through with anything I set out. This year I plan to live a year of intention!
I plan to live on purpose and every goal I set will be done with intention. I don’t want to make resolutions that are a repeat from previous years and never completed. I do believe when living with intention those goals do come true because it’s not a fad… there is accountability attached and the goals are broken down into bit size chunks that make them more obtainable! Will you join me in living with intention?
Share what your list of intentions are for this new year and I dare you to go further with sharing what you are doing TODAY to ensure your goals come to past. Remember, you must start where you are. Rome wasn’t built in a day! But with dedication, accountability and INTENTION, your goals will be completed!
Are you in need of a coach that will help you get there? Well, look no further. I’m transparent… I’ve been where you are and I’ve overcome. I’ve coached many that are living a life with intention and I would love to coach you too!
REPEAT: ” I love change and easily adjust myself to new situations”
Remember, change is inevitable but growth is optional. We ALL will experience change and for some it may be a daunting task but if you speak positivity in the midst of and even before, you can prepare yourself for anything that comes your way.
It’s not about what you go through but how you choose to deal with those things you encounter.
Can you believe we have only 44 days until our new year of 2016??
So many times we wait until the new year to make a resolution or necessary changes to see different results in our lives.
But, did you know that only about 8% of those who set resolutions actually follow through with them? Speaking of your dreams without planning and action remains just a dream. No matter how great the dreams may be, action is required to make them a reality.
I want to help you change those dreams into goals and accomplish them. So I say, choose to start NOW… don’t wait until the first of the year but put action to it today. If you put action to it today, you are setting yourself up for more future success!
God’s word says “be confident that He hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him. And since we know He hears us when we make our requests, we also know that He give us what we ask for.” 1 John 5:13-15
When I dive into this message, a few of things stand out to me. Three particular things are
Being confident or as the dictionary states, “certain that something will happen“… is telling us that we shouldn’t question IF He heard our prayer. BUT that we must recognize that those requests are granted when they are pleasing to God and not against His will. This is how we will know He hears us and will grant our requests.
When I’m praying about a particular situation and wondering if God hears my cry, I remember the dissection of this scripture. It’s important to not always focus on what we need for ourselves but to recognize if what we want for ourselves, lives and those around us is in God’s will and pleasing to Him.
Don’t fall for the traps of social media, magazines and television that states there is a specific kind of beauty. You are uniquely beautiful, made in His image and He doesn’t make any mistakes. Love who you are! Know your worth! Accept your flaws and don’t let go!
#4 is all about not being afraid to stand up for what you believe in. From cancer, racial profiling, domestic violence, speaking out on sexual abuse to standing up for your rights and work that you believe in… NEVER be afraid to stand up for it!
And as usual, I like to reflect on my past year but this year, I’m doing it a little different. I’ve decided to not only reflect on this past year but to reflect on my entire life! I call this my:
Confessions of a Confidence Coach!
Each day throughout my birth month I will share thirty-five life lessons I know to be true from my thirty-five years on this earth. I will blog about it, podcast, vblog or whatever I feel to share the message. This is my way of giving back to the masses. I’ve decided my 35th year will be the year of transparency. My hope during this process is that my life lessons will help you to reflect, share your truth or even allow you to gain an aha or piece of inspiration from my life to continue on your journey.
Here is Life Lessons #1:
Throughout my life there have been times where I’ve shined brightly, showcasing my talents and being a bodacious leader. Then there have also been times I did not. I dimmed my light so those around me could be comfortable. My lesson is… “you should never dim your light for the comfort of others.”
Each of us were given a specific gift. In Ephesians 4:1 “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.” This to me shares we are ALL giving a specific calling and it’s our duty to walk worthy in it no matter what others say. Never allow your light to be dimmed simply because it makes others uncomfortable. You are not living for them… your life is for HIM and that’s what matters most.
I’m so excited to announce my t-shirt line. It’s entitled:
MotoTees is wearable inspiration created by yours truly… Kisha of Keepin’ Chic LLC.
MotoTees believes you can positively affect someone’s life even without saying a word. Wearing tees & tanks with positive and uplifting words will ignite a generation where we focus on fulfilling our God given purpose, spreading more light versus negativity and be the encouraging word that someone is in need of.
Using phrases I typically state as a Life Coach or some of my favorite versus out of the bible, I plan to flood the world with positivity… will you help me?
