They say faith without works is dead. Yes. Ofcourse it is. But if you don’t keep believing, you will probably never act on those things that are good and true. You will probably never take the steps you need to progress. Perhaps because you just don’t believe there is any reason to keep going. If you just keep believing that there is a better way, if you keep believing that you have the strength to make it through rough times, if you believe that tomorrow will be better than today, then you just might do the works you need to do. Keep believing and go make it happen.

Let’s face it. You’re gonna make mistakes. You are going to fail sometimes. You’re gonna screw something up. It’s just human nature. You are going to fall. The challenge is to make your self get up. Try again until you get it right. Perhaps change your strategy based on your past failures. Figure out what works. It is humiliating to dwell on the wrong, but if you learn from it and change your strategy, failure can be a good thing.
Happy July 4th. Love ya!

Lately, I find myself asking for help and relying a bit too much on other people. After all, we all need each other, don’t we? But This morning I tell myself: It all boils down to self-discipline. Decide what you need to do. Acknowledge temptation. Just decide that you will resist it. Write the temptation down on a piece of paper. Ball it up and throw it away or burn it. Decide that today, your life is your own. No apologies. No excuses. No one to blame. No one to rely on. Today it is just you and yourself. Say that you are strong. List the actions you need to take. Take them. Just do it. Then get up tomorrow and do it again.
It seems so easy for some people to try something new. They seem fearless. Not me. It is difficult to go outside my comfort zone. I have been trying to get rid of my fear. Spending a lot of time trying to overcome it. It is so much easier to just stay in a job or circumstance that you know, even if it is not really what you want. My new strategy: Experience the fear. If I don’t, I will be frozen, and I will never try anything new.
Dear Friends, It is important to remember your self worth. Love yourself. Stay away from negative people. They will try and pull you down. They may not even know that they are doing it because they have been negative for a long time. It feels natural to them. You have to surround yourself with people who are positive. People who inspire you. People who are hopeful about the future. Read positive books. Seek out positive relationships. This positive attitude will rub off on you. Listen to positive music, oh yeah.
Persistently yours, Angela.
No matter what happens, you have to use your talent to the fullest. It doesn’t matter if you have 5 people following your blog or 5 million people. You have to share your talent with much care and enthusiasm. I have to sing my heart out regardless of how many people show up to the event. Whatever it is that you do, sweeping a floor, writing a book, designing clothes, being a parent, being a cashier, running a business, doing art, photography, music, etc; do it well. Give it your best shot. Don’t bury it.
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not… Education will not…Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent…”
— Calvin Coolidge

Many marketing experts say that the worst thing you can do is not place your product in a niche. The idea is that , focus and specifics make for a better and narrow marketing plan. You see, people can size you up and know right away if they like you or your product. I get it. Music for example, is tough to pitch to a radio station unless there is a clear genre that the listeners are used to hearing. A sound that they know. The sound is already pre-determined by a few major record labels and everyone and anyone in that genre has to sound a little like the previous artists. I love gospel. I love dance. I love jazz. I love rock. I love the blues, pop, electronic, soul, love songs, and R&B. Even a good rap song!! As long as it is a good song that moves me. For me variety is the spice of life.
If you think you can do everything by yourself, you are in denial. We need each other. We are in this together. http://www.angelashella.com
