You have 2 choices.
Focus on the problem or create the solution.
When you focus on the problem, it becomes magnified.
You become depressed.
You feel a sense of helplessness and hopelessness.
You spend your days being unproductive.
However, when you shift your focus to finding a solution, you recognize that there is no new problem under the sun.
Someone somewhere has gone through a similar situation and has overcome.
Your mind begins to open up and your eyes begin to see the possibilities and opportunities ahead of you.
Your brain receives a jolt of energy as ideas begin to flow out freely.
You suddenly see life differently.
You acquire a new bounce in your steps.
Whatever you are going though, do not allow the problem weigh you down.
Instead choose to focus on creating solutions.
Tune your mind to the possibilities around you.
You will be amazed at the results.
Have an awesome day! 🙏
💡 A glimpse at the end of our creative development with @geeta.house !
His ability to derive creative concepts from his life experiences has put him in position to create some extraordinary experiences to share with you soon
🎵 A true lyricist and musical mind is looking for the inspiration inside the head of @geeta.house . What we were able to do was analyze the components in which he feels most comfortable & creative and create optimal environments within his schedule that will fuel that inspiration back into effect!
🎊 We crafted the foundation of a new artistic experience he will be bringing to life in order to share artist’s work in an engaging and unique fashion.
🎥 Last he has a visual production in the works right now that we cannot speak much about but only can hint that you might just have a new favorite show soon from this renaissance man 👀
💡Our creative development with @joeycracc unfolded a formula to take his creative directing to a new level 📶
🤔His keen sense of creativity has given him the ability to creative direct artists in more ways than one but our main focus was to build a set of goals to begin showcasing these accomplishments to bring him the business he wants.
🎵 Musically his talent to create is off the charts and we devised new strategies to accommodate time management issues within his band.
🎨We also honed in on what he would need to take @soeagallery to the next level and created multiple variables that we could experiment to get him the team members and resources he needs
💡 Our creative experience with @idrispitt this past week was a mixture of innovation and execution!
His mind is working at 1000 mph and our consulting techniques created the guidelines for us to move without distraction to the destination. 📍💰
For his two businesses @booksforbuilding 📚 - a source for the reader who has specific needs that big business cannot cater too and @smalldigitalsolutions 💻📊 the digital media solution for small businesses
we created a strategy that connects both of their growths into one action. Now he’s growing two businesses at once and we can’t wait this week to work on the progress he’s making!
What's bugging you?
Each day is full of little things that can really bug you, but only if you let them. .
As a person who leans towards the side of 'control freak', the temptation to let the little things make or break a day is all too familiar.
Focus on what you can control, like your workouts, and create solutions. Waiting for something to happen is a guarantee for nothing to happen. .
Don't be a Debbie Downer. Choose to stay positive, create solutions.
Ever wonder why some small streams turn a bright yellowish-orange? Water flows through underground flooded mines, picking up iron and other metals along the way. When this water drains into our creeks, the suspended iron drops out and produces the rust color when it is deposited along the stream banks. Luckily, projects by some dedicated groups in the Chartiers Creek Watershed like @alleghenylandtr @scottconservancy @southfayatteconservationgroup have already helped to lessen the impacts from some of these drainage sites!
Was walking down 16th street in downtown denver when I saw this happy face peeking in between the buildings and it reminded me that when you show deep empathy toward others, their defensive energy goes down, and positive energy replaces it. That's when you can get more creative in solving problems! #createsolutions#positivity#energy#empathy#love#solutions#smile#radiate
Courtesy, and kindness matters.
Today's collage shows the "haze" that is still lingering over our city due to burning wild fires.
The bouquets of flowers received, inspire my paintings.
While on the way home, on the crowded SkyTrain. An elderly woman, using a cane got on...We have courtesy seats, and you never know who may be in need of them. Yet not one person got up from their seat to offer this woman a chair. I was standing, as was Renan. This is a HUGE shout out to him @rcurimbaba as he was the only person who asked someone to give up their seat.
The woman acknowledged his kindness, as did I. This is how we met. I choose to meet like-minded souls with the courage to voice for Others in need.
The language of courtesy is universal, no words necessary. When we lend a blind eye, and do nothing we are part of the problem. Let's work together to create solutions.
We live in a beautiful city, yet we need to do better. #nowyouknow
Thank-you Renan, it was a pleasure to connect with you. Welcome to our city. Renan comes from Brazil, we both know and enjoy the beautiful #gypsyjazz of @losraulinos and I am introducing Renan to one of my favourite film directors and photographers on @instagram from #brasil @gabeghost
#zoomin on the photo of the sun, can you see the creature? I did a close up, for those of you who know me. You know I am technically challenged, yet what is this thing? My odd life.
8 Helpful Tips for foster parents talking to your child about difficult school topics: “These children face a myriad of challenges that many other children do not face in school, on top of potential behavioural challenges due to being institutionalized and/or being abused or neglected...A school setting that understands and appropriately supports a child through these unique needs is an invaluable asset to the child, but you will need to be a proactive advocate for achieving this type of support.” #harvestofhope#fostercarefirst#education#createsolutions#advocate#parenting
Good morning 🌞
So I literally wake up at 5am every morning still exhausted because the whole time I’m sleeping I’m trying to solve problems by creating solutions. Last night, I had a dream and Einstein was in it 😂. We was on a blackboard working out every problem I have mathematically 🤦🏾♀️ Needless to say I’m up - I’m tired BUT I literally was able to solve 2 of my problems while sleeping 😌. Things in life typically won’t work how we think they should but that doesn’t mean we give up - you make a way to still achieve your goal!

If you've been complaining for a long time, like years, about things like your job, your weight, your relationships, lack of money or whatever else...
BUT, you haven't done ANY work to change? .
When we whinge and moan about shit we put the entire focus on the problem, rather than using all that energy to take responsibility for creating a solution. .
There's 2 choices when we complain. .
You either admit that you don't give a rat's arse about changing. .
Shut the fuck up, stop bitching and focus on the solution. .
This woman is amazing! Tara Lynn Gray is the President & CEO of the @fresnometrobcc serving #blackownedbusiness and other #smallbusiness
The Fresno Metro Black Chamber has a green team that helps small businesses learn how to improve sustainability, energy efficiency etc to maximize their bottom line. They also just won a $10 million contract to start a green shared mobility project in the region. What does that mean? It means, they’re designing clean transportation programs to fill gaps in the current public transit system so that people can get around town, get to jobs, etc.
Tara is an example of talented entrepreneurs and innovators of color who are engineering solutions to community issues. These folks aren’t waiting for someone else to come fix it, they’re fixing it themselves by creating strong cross-sector, interagency #partnerships with organizations across the region. #work#entrepreneur#socialimpact#greenteam#leadership#stoppollution#createsolutions#environment#greenjobs#greenforall#afuturetofightfor
