Morning Cup of Joe – Stock Value


No one in the world possesses the power to make you better, only you can do that. No one in the world has the ability to tear you down unless you give them permission. There isn’t a soul in the entire universe who can upgrade you; you alone are responsible for your own upgrades. Stop trying to determine your value based on what others think and feel about you. What others think about you is none of your concern.

Where you are today is where you have chosen to be. Certainly our circumstances have something to do with it but I strongly believe that the individual choices we’ve made up to this point is exactly what has gotten us this far. Most of us are where we are by choice not by circumstance. Good choices yield good results. Bad choices, well you know exactly the repercussions of your bad choices and how far those poor choices have gotten you.

At all times focus on self-improvement. Always ask yourself, “How can I get better?”. After a loss, any loss, we must examine why we experienced this loss. We must try to understand where we went wrong and what we are willing to do to improve ourselves so that we don’t continue to experience similar results. Start taking more responsibility for your current circumstances. After all, it is the choices that you’ve chosen to make, good or bad, that has lead you to where you currently are.

Stop allowing others to determine the value of your life; take back the control you have freely given to others. You deserve nothing but the best, don’t you?

Morning Cup of Joe – My First Love


There is a person out there who is waiting to be loved and cared for by you. This person is starving for your attention and affection if only you could hear and understand their cry. Instead of showing this person the love they deserve to receive, you are too busy giving all of your love to someone else. The person who needs your love the most is you.

Learn to love yourself first before trying to love someone else. If you don’t understand the importance of this concept, you will continue to have that empty feeling inside. That feeling you feel when everything seems to be complete but it still feels like something is missing; that empty feeling comes from a lack of self-love. This happens when we are searching for the very thing that we must provide ourselves. Commit to memory the fact that while some may come very close, no one is capable of loving you like you can. If you are in a relationship, it is critically important that you express to your partner what it takes for you to feel loved. You can’t blame someone for an offense they had no clue they were committing.

A common mistake we make is to look outside of self to fill that “love” void; never realizing that if we invested half the time into ourselves as we do for others that empty feeling will be no more. Many of us expect for love to come from someone else other than ourselves which explains why so many people are constantly searching for the very thing they hold themselves. That search will never end if you don’t realize that you are the only person you can count on to love yourself unconditionally. When we love ourselves unconditionally, we set the standard and expectation of how we are supposed to be loved. When we unconditionally love ourselves first, only then will we be able to spread that love to others more fluidly and effortlessly.

Love Yourself First.
