I want you to do the same!

I shared this little story one year ago, and think its only appropriate to share again!
 
I was searching for pictures to celebrate my daughters birthday tomorrow and I came across THIS. Here I am, 23 years old as a single momma with an almost 1 year old, standing outside our first “home!” I think I bought it for $67,000. I had never been married, I had no idea what was ahead, I just knew that I had a little girl that I wanted to make sure had an amazing life! I didn’t know yet that the man of my dreams worked across the street in the middle school. I didn’t know that I would go on to sail through graduate school while working full time. I didn’t know that I would be married 2 years later, eventually have 3 more boys (including twins…what), and a beautiful family of 6! I didn’t know I would become a stay at home mom, married to a stay at home dad, and be building a multi million dollar business while creating options for our family and others. I could have never imagined all this in my wildest dreams!!!
 
Don’t you dare ever ever let anyone tell you to accept things as they are! Don’t let the poor decisions of your past stop you from creating a life that you and your family deserve.
 
To those of you in business with me…..I’m sure you often think I’m too aggressive. You probably think things just come easy for me as well. Honestly…..nothing has ever been given to me, nor has anything come easily. I have created plenty of messes for myself. However, by the Grace of God, I found a way!!! Where there is a will, there is a way!!!! When your WHY is bigger than your EXCUSES, you will work like crazy to create that way!!!!

I’ve never been good at listening to excuses….or “I cant’!” What I am good at is doing….and I want you to do the same! Don’t over think things, don’t just sit and wish!!!! Don’t expect things to happen overnight. Start the journey now! Start TODAY! It’s been 15 years since this picture and I wouldn’t change a thing. This journey has led me to where I am today!!! Go get what you want! Quit talking about it…..do it!!!! Just do it!!!

What Motivates Me?

I’m often asked, what motivates you Mauria??? How do you stay motivated every day??? Honestly, it’s my FUTURE and my family’s FUTURE that motivates me. It’s also the reminder of what life was like “BEFORE.” I don’t want to go back to the rat race of “before”, the financial situation of “before.” My office is […]

Pray Boldly!

So I threw out a little challenge to my Facebook following to do The 40 day prayer challenge with me! Mark Batterson is one of my favorite authors. I love his books and attending his church in Washington DC is a bucket list item for me! In 2011, when I read The Circle Maker, it […]
