PUT ME IN COACH! What to do once you’re in the 4th Quarter of the “Game (of Life)?”

PUT ME IN COACH! What to do once you’re in the 4th Quarter of the “Game (of Life)?”

I try to always be honest with you.

Seriously, I spend my time putting together the events of my life or those around me in order to encourage you every week. But…

Ummm…

This fourth quarter has snuck up on your girl.  :-/

I spent the 3rd quarter of 2017 preparing for the most crucial time of the year, and I can’t believe that it’s here.  And the coach of all coaches is saying, “RJ, I need you. Get off the bench, and win this game for us!”

HUH? Excuse me, Lord.  Are you talking about this RJ?

Within the last three months I’ve been asked to speak for a Women’s Empowerment Conference, PechaKucha, and I am scheduled to present the Final 48 Project at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University’s graduation.

Well, if I wasn’t ready, I better get ready right?

Even when we think we are not ready for the blessing(s) that God has for us; we are.  He has equipped us with more than enough to get the task done.  All we have to do is walk in it.

Don’t be afraid.  Easier said than done I know.  I was a bit frightened by all of the opportunities that were before me, but I realize this is what I asked God to do for me.  Continue to use me in the way that is within His will.

My story will continue to impact the lives of others, and don’t forget that your story can/will too!

Put me in COACH.  I’m ready!

XOXO,

RJ

Are you here to WIN OR WHAT? The 4th Quarter of 2016 is HERE…ARE YOU READY?

Are you here to WIN OR WHAT? The 4th Quarter of 2016 is HERE…ARE YOU READY?

Okay. Let’s get to it!

October 1st was Saturday, and that means the official start of the last quarter of the year.  If you are a sports fan you can definitely appreciate this quarter, and growing up in a household with sports fanatics I totally understand the importance of this season.

ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IN THE FOURTH QUARTER!

Imagine it’s the championship game, I’ll let you choose the sport 😉

You are down by seven points after the half, and now entering the fourth quarter.  During halftime you received the pep talk from your coach on how to bring this win home, but in the 3rd quarter you still didn’t see any results.  I mean you were definitely getting closer to the goal, but not quite there.

Do you know that feeling?

Okay maybe I’m talking to myself over here.

I will admit that I had some life changing events occur in the 3rd quarter, but my goodness I knew that I had to pick up the pace in the 4th quarter. Especially if I want to win in 2016.

Here it is the end of the 3rd quarter, and I’m on the phone with one of my closest friends discussing what I want to crush in the 4th quarter.  He encourages me, and understands my faith driven ideas so he was definitely hype about the plan.

So, you ready to hear about what’s coming up next?

The first event in the Midwest will kick off the #SteeleThankful challenge.

#SteeleThankful Challenge 2016
#SteeleThankful Challenge 2016

This will be open to a select number of people, (first dibs to the subscribers of the email list, so I suggest you don’t miss out).  Last year I had an amazing time launching the challenge, so it’s coming back this year.  The challenge highlights our genuine thankfulness in the month of November.  Even though we are thankful all year long, it’s our time to celebrate with family and friends.  I’m #SteeleThankful for this platform to share with you the ups and downs of my journey of entrepreneurship through storytelling for Adventures of Alleykats book series, and the documentary/photo campaign for the Final 48 Project.

I’m excited to share what I’m #SteeleThankful for this year, and looking forward to hearing about what you’re going to share during the #SteeleThankful Challenge.

Are you ready to crush the 4th quarter with me?  What is one thing you would like to accomplish before December 31st?  Write it on a piece of paper, attach a scripture to it, and tape it to your wall.  Recite it every day, and see what happens!

There will be more information about location, and date after this week.  Let’s get ready to fill the atmosphere with thankfulness!

XOXO,
