Discovering your GAPs leads to transformation in every area of your life: Spirit. Soul. Body.

When you uncover your hurt and pain, though quite a difficult challenge, it leads you to take the first steps toward filling your GAP--Growth, Abundance and Power.

  • Personal Growth is a process. Consider the process you are using to grow all the areas (Spiritual, Physical, Mental, Romance, Career, Finance) of your life.

  • Abundance is necessary for us to live in this world. Money answers everything! You can create that 6-figure income you so long desire. I will share surefire ways to create your dream income and help you take the vacations you so long for, give to the causes that burden you, and give you enough to live on more that the bare necessities.

  • Personal Power to operate in this world comes in many forms. We continue to fail because of the lack of confidence and know how.

You uncovering will open yourself up to moments you've previously experienced that defines the beautiful dreams among your hurt and pain and awaken you to be empowered to take action to create future successes.

Each of us know someone who need GAP fillers. Here are 3 GAP fillers you can begin with to start the journey to a purpose-filled life.

GAP Fillers:


  • There is always at least one situation that brings fulfilment even on the worst day. Start a running list of all the things you are grateful for — and take it a step further by verbalising a "thank you" to the Creator for bringing it to you.


  • One of my favorite definition of love is found in I Corinthians 13 in the Bible.

  • "Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends." How is your love meter measuring today?


  • Perform a random act of kindness. One day was experiencing the worst day ever. No matter how hard I tried, my spirit was low. When you experience intense growth and challenge in the business world, life coaches refer to this as “reaching the upper limit.” On that day as I drove past the main entrance of my home, one of the security personnel stopped me and asked if I could take her to pick up lunch. Though I was not in the mood for company, I said 'yes." On my “upper limit” day I went out of my way to help her get lunch. This very young and aspiring, but struggling young woman and I had a lovely chat. I learned from her, to stop focusing on my own challenges and troubles, and it made me feel good to know that, on that day, I empowered her to continue striving for her dream.

How will you fill your GAP today and continue to design a path to live empowered and successful?

As far as I can remember, the desire to create a lasting legacy was always in the forefront of my mind. I desired to make something of my life, establish a great career, get married and have children, own a family home and business, and grow leaders. With the many struggles and challenges along my path to purpose, I sometime felt that I would not be able to achieve my goals and dreams.

There has been so many stops and starts and lessons learned from being naive or lacking maturity. My desire to impact the lives of others remained the greatest propelling force.

In the Bible we are urged to “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves”. When you are divinely guided you can be assured that your successes will be directly connected to your Divine life design. Be careful of the ego here and endeavor to stay grounded by anchoring to whose you are. You cannot do anything without your Creator. Remember this and aspire to maintain a spirit of humility at all times.

Do not forget the efforts of those who have supported and helped you to arrive at where you are today. It is quite easy to forget that you are nothing without the breath that was breathed into you by God. It would not have been possible to accomplish all you have without this ability to breathe.

Consistently maintain a spirit of humility. An example of true humility is seen in the story of Mary and Elizabeth in the book of Luke. Elizabeth when she greeted Mary who was excited to be the mother of Jesus in Luke 1:43, though pregnant at the same time that Mary came to express her joy, did not say, “and what about me didn’t you notice I was carrying John the Baptist into the world as well?” Embrace the gifts of others.

I am amazed and proud of those individuals whom I have coached; some of them have taken the results from their coaching sessions and have created successes far beyond themselves or my coaching. I am forever grateful to have been a part of their journeys and will always be one of their biggest cheerleaders. I will always be grateful to those who referred my services to others. Thank you for your vote of confidence. You believed in me and the work I do and passed on your experience and recommendation to others whose lives I have had the privilege to impact.

Sometimes you may have challenges with those your are aligned with, but it is important to recognize their value and focus on the goodness they brought into your life, whether it be through a job well done or lesson learned.

Your life is influencing those around you whether you are aware of it or not. What you need to affect other’s lives is right in your hands – at our fingertips.

Think About It:

Be honest with yourself and begin to list the kind of legacy you want to leave in this world there. Write down thoughts that will lead you to greater growth and development in your life and those you will influence.

Influence Legacy Assessment (Answer the following questions):

  1. Do I have influence? Describe what that looks like currently.

  2. What does it mean for me to be a leader?

Transform Your Life ... Transform Your World

If you seriously want to keep moving forward on any big goal, then this time leverage tip holds the keys you need to succeed if you want to avoid having to stay caught up in overwhelm.

The Main Idea Here Is: If You're Overwhelmed... Break It Down

Your whole game plan comes down to the simple fact that whenever you feel overwhelmed for whatever reason, you need to break whatever it is down into smaller parts. Without question you chip away at it.

The Bottom Line is you stop focusing on the big goal and place direct attention on small, manageable actions you can take to get you closer to the end result you want.

This tip spells the difference between success and failure for every person because if you don't, you'll end up mired so deeply in frustration and overwhelm it will start to sabotage other areas of your life... not just the current project you're working on. Seriously, the frustration you feel in one area starts to bleed over into other, totally unrelated areas of your life.

So the next logical step here is to:

  • Take a look at your goal and divide it up into steps / phases / stages.

  • Make an action list that goes with each of those bigger stages above

  • Put deadlines on all the little steps and then focus on each phase in turn.

That's how you get something huge done that seems overwhelming to you right now..
