Imagine a new you!

Repositioning is not about harboring a thought that maybe one day you can achieve a seemingly distant goal. It’s about having a belief in Self that is grounded in faith and putting that faith to work. Look at how many times Queen Latifah has repositioned herself; she’s excelled in so many areas that many people don’t remember she started out as a rapper.
Your own metamorphosis doesn’t have to be nearly as dramatic. It may simply mean moving from doing other folks’ hair in your kitchen to doing it in a salon, or going from owning a health spa to owning a chain of spas. God blesses what you do, not your feigning and going through the motions. Action must be an outgrowth of a faith that is working.
It was my father’s faith that took one mop and one bucket and turned them into a whole janitorial service. It was my mom’s faith that led her to put an oil lamp to read by at the bottom of the bed, with 14 brothers and sisters jostling all around her, and work her way through Tuskegee. This is not a faith that simply feeds a hunger for capitalism, making money for money’s sake, or amassing material goods. This is not a name-it-and-claim-it, blab-and-grab kind of faith. It’s deep-seated. Without it, no one experiences tried-and-true success.
