How to Use The Power of WISDOM to Transform Your Life


10.27.13 Posted in Video by

A while ago, I almost cancelled a meditation call.

It *almost* didn’t happen.

But everybody knows, almost doesn’t count.

The world “ALMOST” will get in your way every single 
time you scratch the surface of greatness.

You ALMOST completed this. You ALMOST completed that. 
You ALMOST achieved your goal. You ALMOST took that leap 
of faith. But today, almost will disappear. 

I want to tell you about WISDOM. There’s something you 
need to do, that requires a wisdom.

You don’t need to 
*almost* or *halfway* or *kind of* make a decision. 

It’s time to gain clarity and make the wise choice. 
Whether it’s getting a new job or letting go of a toxic relationship.  Making wise choices that move your life forward, even 
when it seems impossible.

Even when you don’t know how. It was big for me. Everyone would have 
understood if I couldn’t make it. I literally wasn’t feeling well. I was sick, 
hunched over and vomiting. (Sorry but its true) But… I realized something. I had to push. I felt how I felt, but I knew somebody 
needed me.

With all the recent events, I knew that if I 
pushed through in my WORST moment, I’d help somebody 
else receive their BEST moment. So I followed my intuition and I’m glad I did. Before I give you today’s affirmation, I want to give 
you a recap of what we talked about. And this 
is important because you’re about to make some very 
serious decisions about your future. Please, use wisdom. Make wise choices.

What’s WISDOM? It’s the quality of having experience, knowledge, and 
good judgment; the quality of being wise.

It’s knowing when to push, knowing when not to. Knowing 
when to stay, when to leave. Knowing when to stop, when 
to start. Knowing that your purpose in life is bigger than you… 
and whatever you feel or think, whatever struggle, hurt, 
pain, heartache – is just a part of the process to get 
your greatness. Today, I want to empower you to be WISE about your 
decisions. Because every decision you make is either 
HELPING your life or HURTING your life. Every decision you make is moving you CLOSER to your 
dreams or FURTHER from your dreams.

Wisdom is what happens when you realize that no weapon, 
no obstacle, no circumstance formed against you shall 
prosper. And because you’re wise, you keep moving forward anyway. 
You don’t sweat the small stuff. You don’t let doubt, 
fear, UPPERCUT you and knock you out.

DON’T LET YOUR THOUGHTS ROB YOU OF YOUR HAPPINESS 
DON’T LET YOUR MIND ROB YOU OF YOUR GREATNESS 
DON’T LET YOUR MIND STEAL YOUR JOY 
DON’T LET YOUR FEELINGS DELETE YOUR DREAMS 
DON’T LET YOUR FRIENDS STEER YOU OFF TRACK 
DON’T LET ANYBODY MAKE YOU FEEL YOU’RE NOT WORTHY 
DON’T LET YOUR PAST KEEP YOU FROM YOUR FUTURE.

Remind yourself that even though *this* is where you 
are, *this* is not where you’re going to be forever. 
That’s wisdom. And now is a time in your life where you can’t afford not to make 
wise choices.

Here’s a powerful affirmation

——————————–

TODAY I am committed to 
living a FULL life. LIFE IS TOO SHORT for anything else. 
No weapon, BS, drama, negativity shall prosper today. I 
REFUSE to be blocked by anyone or anything. I’m too busy 
dreaming, living, laughing, succeeding in every area of 
my life. I AM FULL OF WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND POWER. I do 
what I do, because I am who I am, and I am who I am 
because I can BE whoever I chose to BE. God made me who 
I AM, and I’m FREE to be me. WISE, SUCCESSFUL and FREE.

————————————

Make as many wise choices as you can today. Do you need 
to get up early? Do you need to stay at work late? Do 
you need to cook dinner a little earlier? Is it time to 
grab some new knowledge? Did you make the wise decision 
to let go of someone or something? Keep these questions in mind as you navigate through 
your day. Be WISE about the choices you make.

Now don’t just CLOSE this and go on with your 
regularly scheduled life.

Here’s the assignment. PICK (1) area in your life that 
isn’t as satisfactory as you’d like it to be.

Then write 
down 3 WISE DECISIONS you can make to improve it within 
the next 24 hours.

Do you always get upset when your friend, spouse, boss calls or doesn’t call ? Do 
you always get upset when coworkers ask you if something 
gets done? Do you feel frustrated, anxious or confused 
when you don’t get things done on time? Have you been 
PROCRASTINATING to do the thing you said you would do? Okay.

Fine. Let’s take some action and be wise about how 
we deal with it. The above assignment is a simple step. 
And like always, you have the option to NOT do it, but 
that’s hopefully NOT why you signed up to read this. Be WISE today.

Keep the mindset, attitude 
to change YOUR life on YOUR terms. No matter how much I motivate or pump you up, it’s 
ultimately up to YOU to LIVE, ACT and BREATHE your own 
greatness.

    Hi Mrs. Sykes,
    I just want to thank you because I believe God lead me to your page. I am 40 years old and full of talents that I didn’t realize til now. I have a blog and just started my own modeling agency. I have written so many ideals down when I lived in Mississippi and now I am in Maryland. So, far from home, but I am determined to obtain my dreams…with God guidance.

    I thank you for sharing and inspiring us to continue even when we get a little nervous about the future. I am moving forward with wisdom and confidence. I really needed this…
    Thanks again

  4. Just finished reading the book on Elevation. This book meets me right where I am in life and where I want to be in the very near future. I am also on a journey of elevation and because of the mindset I have spiritually, I can honestly see how it is attracting people in my life on a different level and I communicate with them on the level I see myself. I just finished my Master’s in Biblical Counseling in September of this year (2013). I am going for my Doctrine. I have started a Blog. I just finished my book that I am going to self publish. My relationship is so awesome! The best I have ever had. Yes, Shanel this has been a painful journey but I am grateful for the pain because I now see the healing taking place. I will continue to move higher and higher in every aspect of my life with the challenges and pain because I know there is so much joy to receive. I give God all the glory and praise! I would not have made it this far without Him!
