“The values I learned as a child have sustained me throughout my adult life.  I cannot say that I have always appreciated the advice that my elders passed my way, but in times of crisis, it is their words that helped me get through.  Grandma use to say, with God’s guidance, I could achieve the impossible.   As a life coach, writer, and speaker, I share my experiences through my work.”   Dawn  

Achiever Always

“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13 (ESV)

You will never underachieve because greatness is within you.

Quality Not Quantity

“We ask brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you,” 1 Thessalonians 5:12  English Standard Version (ESV)

In regards to teamwork, having a big group does not mean better nor does a small group mean mediocre.  For it is the quality of the individuals working with you not the quantity. Surround yourself with great people.


Stop It

“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14

Stop letting the enemy draw you back to yesterday. You cannot move forward focused on yesterday’s mishaps.  Do not allow him (the enemy) to continue showing you that today does not look like what God has promised you.  If God wants something, He is going to get what He wants and that is final because He has a great reason for doing so.


Purposefully Living

” My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my psalm to the King.  My tongue is like a pen of a skillful writer.” Psalm 45:1 (AMP)

I live my purpose everyday sharing inspiration.  When I don’t, I am not living purposefully.  For a long time, I was waiting for the tide to turn in my favor.  I realized my reality starts with me, and I needed to get off my butt and do something.  I am not perfect, but perfection is not needed for what I am purposed to do.

Every dream realized is a person helped in the world. – Dawn C. Mason

It Goes By So Fast

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:” Ecclesiastes 3:1 ESV

Time goes by so fast.  That means you have no time to waste on things that are not apart of your purpose.


Not Suppose To Know

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

You do not have to know everything, but know that God has a perfect plan for you.  Everything you ever dreamed of will come to past because you have followed His instructions.  Be patient, loving, and watch God work in your life.


Would He Be Pleased?

We say we want to be pleasing in God’s sight. Well, do not let the people you are trying to get saved question your own salvation by what they see or hear you do before and after the church doors are opened.  Salvation is not something you parade just on Sunday and Wednesday Bible Study.

In my quest to become a wiser woman, I have been taking inventory of self.  I am determined to master the gifts of being quiet and the ability to reason. These are two characteristics of gracefulness.  It is insane to repeatedly continue unbecoming,  inappropriate behavior, give lame excuses, and expect people to treat you differently.

Aristole said it best, “We are what we repeatedly do.”  Are you about excellence or mediocrity?
