Surviving as the Only Black in the Office

Being the only black person working in an office environment can be challenging, and very intimidating; but does it have to be that way?  I was in that situation for over 25 years , and while many things in the workplace have changed for the better; being the only black in the office still gives most of us a lot of anxiety. I know personally how tricky and scary it can be. Corporate America severely lacks in diversity, there are only 5 black CEO's at Americas 500 biggest…

Who is Alexander Steele

Who is Alexander Steele?

 

 

Alexander Steele is a fictitious, street savvy, African American detective who grew up on the rough streets of Philly.  Forget everything you know about gritty, skirt cashing, chain-smoking, broke detectives of the past.  Steele (as his friends call him) is a unique breed of detective.  When Steele is in the danger zone he fly’s solo but behind the scenes he is often relies on the computer expertise from his best friend/hacker Stan.  With…

WHAT DO YOU DESERVE?

 

 

We tend to be so consumed in our everyday routines of life that we forget our own self-value.

Days appear to be going by now at a faster pace than usual.  It is as though we do not have enough hours in a day to accomplish all we desire.  Because of this…

Love Will Not Be Denied

We are facing a world crisis that will continue to grow as long as we deny the power of love.  The lack of love breeds a ground for war.  Where there is war, we find desperation.  Each soul is born to bear love.  No love means no life.  The world is a cancerous monster right now denying love.  There is no way we can move forward and have hope for the future for our children if we do not face this epidemic.

What has happened to Paris is a reality check for mankind to seek a better way…

LIVE YOUR PURPOSE

When you wake up in the morning, you should be helping God wake you up because you have a strong desire to get on with your day.  Purpose is the acceptance of being in the world but not of it.  You trust God with your life, you listen to guidance.  The world does not seem as noisy…

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

All transformation begins with an intense, burning desire to be transformed. The first step in the”renewing of the mind” is desire. You must want to be different (and intend to be) before you can begin to change yourself. Then you must make your future dream a present fact.  You do this by assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled. By desiring to be other than what you are, you can create an ideal of the person you want to be and assume that you are…

Who Am I: Exploring My Blackness---Preface

I wrote this book because it is necessary.  It is necessary for the time and also to my state of mind in terms of where I came from, as well as where we are as a people.  The more I meditated on the things contained within this book, the more sorrowful I became.  Just like it is important to learn true knowledge of the Holy Bible, learning who you are as a people will let you know just how lost you are every…

We Get Tired

Sometimes I think we have to be reminded of who and what we are.  We are children of God.  It does not get any better than that.  We are here to allow our true selves to be known in a world starving for love.  Letting go and letting God  allows for us to be a brilliant light.  

True we have weathered many storms and often times we get tired.  When I say we get tired, I am talking about that kind of tired that has not anything to do with being physically tired.  I'm talking about all…

Thank You!

How often have we been told to give thanks in all things? Quite often I am sure especially when we are struggling and going through difficult times. Recently, I have come to learn the solid significance of these words. But, it was not until I had risen out of my own suffering.



Ephesians 5:20 tells us to give thanks for all things unto God and the Father in the name of…

YOU SHOULD WRITE

If you really want to learn something about you, others and life, all you have to do is sit down and begin to write.  You will learn more in that given moment than you would if you read a book.

Why?  Because you will be introduced to a part of yourself that you did not know even existed.  There is great power in written words.  That is why the Bible was written.  At first the laws and teachings of God were handed down by mouth, but eventually it…
