THE DAYS ARE GETTING CLOSER…

As the days are getting closer, I start to have a deeper urge to write more and more. I’m so excited for the future authors that will take a stand and make an impact with their book. There is so much to share when it comes to book writing, and it can only begin when you starting putting your thoughts on pen and paper.

 

We have five months left in 2020! How do you want your year to end?🤔

 

On that note, don’t miss out on Authentic Worth’s online masterclass session on Saturday 25th July at 14.00pm via Zoom! We have very limited tickets available and wouldn’t want you missing out. Register your space today!

Remember: Authentic Worth is bringing worth back into you through storytelling and book writing 📚✍🏾

TWO YEARS AGO…

 

Two years ago, on Friday 11th May 2018 was the day my eyes opened. I remember getting ready for work, when the phone rang. I heard my sister crying downstairs and knew something was up. Whilst doing my make-up, I remained calm and rushed downstairs. Then I heard the words: Glory’s gone! I had a very strong feeling that was the case because there’s a type of cry one cries when it’s death-related. I remember heading to the train station and arriving to work. I didn’t even eat breakfast at home because I was trying to understand whole situation. A woman like me going to work the same day my big sister passed away…woah!

Moving on, here I am today. Two years later. I can’t say the journey has been easy or I’ll be lying to you. The journey, the risks, the silent tears have been demeaning, but the strength, joy, and wisdom that these past two years has brought to my heart are key lessons I’ll forever cherish. I decided to leave my full-time job to pursue my career in writing and public speaking. At the time my sister passed, I already had two books. The vision I had was to continue writing more books and run quarterly workshops. This vision became a reality. Without no financial backup or another source of income or job, I took the leap of faith and left what was extremely comfortable with a very good pay, to remember what my purpose is and why I exist. I couldn’t put a price tag on my sister; no amount of money is worth a loved one.

I did not want to keep doing the same routine; I wanted to impact lives. My vision to set up Authentic Worth is to help, support and bring worth back into people through storytelling and book-writing. Since then, I’ve managed to host several book workshops, social events, annual book launches, and most importantly, publishing four Authors books in 2019. I’ve also been invited from several TV presenters and companies to talk about Authentic Worth and my book-writing career which has been humbling, as well as promoting my books in WHSmith.

The vision is growing and many people are inspired to write books. I wrote my third book titled From Glory to Glory – a book dedicated to my late sister. Her name is Glory and I decided to name the book after her as a way for her legacy to live on. I decided to turn the book into an audiobook because of its impact and life-changing transformation. I knew there was so much in me that wanted to give out to people. Was I nervous? Of course. Did I have a plan? Indeed, I did and I still do! However, I didn’t allow my fears to entangle me; rather I trapped them by keeping it moving and not remaining complacent.

I refused to look at what I didn’t have…support or no support…income or no income, none of that stopped me. If it did, I would have quit, but I didn’t. Authentic Worth is still running and will be two years in October 2020. Don’t allow financial burdens, low self-esteem or lack of support to stop you from doing what you’ve been called to do. If the world hasn’t stopped, then why have you?

Authentic Worth is passionate and intentional about bringing worth and investing in aspiring authors to share their story with confidence and turn their pain into purpose. Many people are sitting on their gifts for fear that nobody will notice them, so they feel inclined to stay in the same position. I don’t want anyone to feel trapped; there has to come a point where you know what you want and go for it. I never knew the impact of not having a consistent income would do to me, but it didn’t take me off course. The results may not show forth as I intend for them to be, but step-by-step, I’ll endeavour to stand with those who are willing to share their story with boldness. Your story is your story and no one can take it away from you.

This is my story…I have been on a journey, and it has been a hard one. The decisions I’ve made to be the woman I am today is only by the Grace of God. I can’t do this on my own. I know what is ahead of me is greater than what I originally had in mind. I am not saying you have to copy what I did, you must apply wisdom first! Not everyone is called to do a 9-5 and not everyone is called to be an entrepreneur. They both have their advantages and disadvantages, regardless, it carries a lot of triumphs and a lot of pain, but it will be worth it! There is no position that is better than the other. Your purpose, however, should be more than money or position. It should transform the lives of others around you and bring change in a broken society.

Don’t sit on your gifts; you don’t have to wait until something drastic happens before you make a change. Look around you. There are many people wanting to hear your story and utilise your talents. I am glad and excited for all our 2020 Authors and looking forward to helping you publish your book and get it out to the world.

Remember: If you don’t believe in yourself or your vision, how will others believe in it? Don’t sit on your gifts.

DEALING WITH PEOPLE WHO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU | ELEVATION REQUIRES SEPARATION

 

Authentic Worth is “bringing worth back into you through storytelling and book-writing!”

Taking advantage of another person shows insecurity, weakness and lack of self-esteem. I can’t think of times where it felt difficult saying no because people perceived me as too nice, or resulted in being treated differently because as Christians, we are taught to love regardless. However, there is difference between being used and being valued.

Look at life from a bigger scale; where are you currently with emotional intelligence? Are you taking advantage of people’s knowledge and connections for you to run ahead and leave others behind for selfish gain?

If you struggle with people taking advantage of you, then grab something to eat and let’s get started. Being kind to the world can be seen as a weakness, but to the person who knows their worth, kindness is a great strength. Never believe in the opinions of people because they aren’t facts, neither allow people to take your time and energy that you end up being drained.

I’ll be talking about why people take advantage of you, it’s purpose and how to avoid it going forwards using biblical and generic scenarios. 2020 is not the year to play!

HOW TO BE CONFIDENT AND WORK ON YOUR PERSONAL GOALS IN 2020

We haven’t got long to go until Authentic Worth’s first event of the year will commence!

On Saturday 14th March 2020, Authentic Worth will teach, inspire, and educate you on how to build self-confidence and personal development from professional and personal endeavours!

It is important in our generation that we learn as individuals to work on ourselves daily. Before we can help someone, we need to first identify if we have any issues that have not been resolved before we can carry another person’s responsibility.

Do not take life for granted; rather invest in yourself daily and be better than you were yesterday.

You can’t always be successful on your own. What fun is it to be successful and celebrate alone?

You don’t want to miss this event! Limited tickets left
