Adversity is an integral part of life

Adversity can sidetrack people, cause them to fall down, and lose their focus. Everyone will experience adversity.  It affects the human spirit and can negatively impact your life placing you in a state of unhappiness, low self-esteem, fear, discouragement, confusion, frustration, anger or shame.  However, adversity can also empower you to push forward in your life to do great things but you may need some help.  Advancing through adversity can be difficult.  I know firsthand about the pain of adversity and what it can do to a person.  However, I also know firsthand from my experiences that there is power and purpose in the pain of adversity that can lift you up to push you forward.


What challenges are you facing in your life that are holding you back? 

What is your adversity?

 What do you want to do with your life?


Over the years, adversity has taught me valuable lessons that I have poured into my You’ve Got the Power: Overcoming Adversity Workshop for one purpose:  to empower people; to help people successfully advance through and overcome difficult life challenges because I believe that every person has a purpose to fulfill and do great things with their life.  However, many people don’t realize that there is power and purpose in their pain or how to access that power to push them forward.

The Power Workshop is designed with an effective Plan of Action Empowerment Kit (“POA Kit”)  for every person, young and old, because no one is immune to adversity.  The POA Kit is packed with a set of life skills, tools and strategies to empower people to transform their adversity into a wonderful opportunity to overcome their personal challenges and achieve their goals in life whatever they may be.  All of the tips, tools and exercises in the POA Kit I have applied to my own life and still apply them today because they work.  In addition, I offer a Teen Empowerment Workshop that focuses on developing goal setting strategies, providing teens with an understanding of accountability, responsibility and character building.  Teens face challenges as well and they deserve to be empowered to successfully reach their full potential to achieve their goals.  It's important for teens to learn that adversity does not define who they are and they have the power to overcome their challenges.  

I want my story to inspire people.  Nothing is more rewarding than having people inform me that my story and the Power Workshop transformed their lives.  

Don't allow adversity to pull you away from your purpose.  Take the first step toward victory and book a Power Workshop today for an organization, non-profit group, high school students, college students, young adults, youth group, mentoring program,  adult women, single mothers, adult men, single fathers or a private one-on-one session.  Contact me.  I want to hear from you.  You’ve Got the Power!
