Hi my name is Lucinda Cross and I am a recovering procrastinator. I stopped using procrastination in 2009 when I was leaving an important meeting at WLIB radio and my car was towed. That was a $1400 dollar lesson.
First, I procrastinated in leaving the house, which led me to park on the street instead of a garage, which was a result of my procrastination in not paying my past parking tickets. Procrastination is an addiction and it will take over your life.

The quickest way to finish writing your book is to WRITE IT. Don’t make this complicated. Pick a specific time of day that you are most relaxed and most creative. Use that time to write for the next 30-60 days non stop.
I am a late night writer and so I get my inspiration around 2am. I schedule that time in my calendar as a date with myself, the house is quiet the kids and hubby are asleep.
Sojourner Truth could not write but she was an author. She used her book that was a narrative to support her on her mission. Sojourner never learned to read or write, but she used what she had, to get what she wanted.
Excuse me what did you say your excuse was again?

The question I hear from clients is: How to get booked and stay booked in an overbooked economy?
If you don’t have any speaking engagements lined up, prepare yourself like you do. Start today.
Act As If!
Go get your props, draft your main points you want to discuss, pick the outfit you are going to wear, have your raffle prizes, and put your “back of the room” offer ready.
Always Be Intentional and Always Move In Expectancy.
Many times I will go get an outfit or go to the craft store for props and on my way there or back, I get an invitation via email or phone. It’s not a coincidence, it’s setting clear intentions.

Sojourner Truth was not allowed to speak up for what she believed in, but she did it anyway. Her life was in danger, but she showed up anyway. She is considered one of the most powerful speakers for women’s rights.
Did you say you were afraid of speaking up?
Sojourner Truth had to eat fear for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You think she had time to worry about goodie bags, veggie snacks, matching decor, and stage fright.
Get out there and SPEAK ALREADY!

For any leader or power of influence there comes a time when you will be tested and tried. Your endurance and the persistence is what will keep you through those stormy thoughts and those late night writers block moments when you have a deadline approaching.
Mindless behavior is when you allow your thoughts to take you on an emotional roller coaster. Often times into a state of slump.
As you go through, and grow through life’s challenges, please keep it together. If you are a writer or speaker or someone who shares a message, keeping it together is crucial to your platform. At 19, I thought I was going to lose my mind, I was in an mindless place, with people losing their mind. I prayed and asked God to grant me one wish…”to keep my mind.” I didn’t have my yoga Cd’s or special mat, candles or fancy ritual trinkets, no tarot/hand reader or horoscope advice, no prayer cloths or special beads. It was just me and God.
How many times have you almost lost your mind?
How many times did you feel like you were about to snap?
Thank God for being a keeper.
The mind is a terrible thing to waste and so is your message. Make up in your mind right now that you will carry on and continue to move forward with positive and productive behavior regardless of what the circumstances look like or feel like right now.
Don’t let your situation or circumstance control your mind.

Keeping it simple is key. One thing that writers have to practice is the power of SIMPLICITY.
One of the important keys to writing your best work is to consolidate your thoughts. Scatter brain thinking will result in scatter brain writing. Time to consolidate.
I want you to think about ways you can consolidate your STUFF. Whatever that STUFF is. How can you take the things that are all over the place and consolidate them? Whether it be your thoughts, your business, your message, your notes, your ideas, your clients, your to-do list, your task for the day. Keep things simple for yourself and others this week.

Abundance appears when you choose to solve one problem over many. Abundance appears when you stop bargaining and start brainstorming. Abundance appears when you become teachable. Abundance appears when you stop saying “me” and start thinking of “we”. Abundance appears when you release your fears and embrace your flaws. Abundance comes from the heart and is exemplified in your every thought and word. ~Lucinda Cross

Prosperity comes when humility kicks in. Prosperity comes when you stop talking to the wrong people at the right time. Prosperity comes when you stop saying what you don’t want to do, and start doing what you have to do. Prosperity comes when you stop faking it and start creating it. Prosperity comes when you stop counting your dollars and start counting your opportunities.
