“If Rosa Parks had taken a poll before she sat down in the bus in Montgomery, she'd still be standing” - Mary Frances Berry

You decide who gets to ride on your bus and nobody else. Also, these people need to be invited on your bus and not simply take the ride for granted.

In simple terms, teach people how you want to be treated. Rosa Parks did, on December 1, 1955 and the rest is history.

She was 42 years of age at the time and 42 years was already too long for fear to control her decisive moment.

In her own words, “I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.”

In order to move forward towards freedom, you must begin to teach people how you want to be treated.

It’s called terms of engagement.

This is a must.

You must do this from the onset as no one can read your mind.

No one!

Be real and tell people who you really are from the very beginning. You don’t have to be rude, intolerant, or stubborn but you must begin to teach people how you want to be treated.

No one can read your mind.

Eggshells are everywhere.

You might have to step on a few in order for people to understand where you’re coming from when you interact with them.

Embrace fear with courage

Courage is acting in the face of fear. 

Courage is absolutely essential if a person wants to realize their dreams and live in freedom. 

There’s a whole big wide world of magnificence out there and you can have it but you must believe in yourself and persevere.

Taylor Benson said, "It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light." 

Believe in yourself.

Decide what type of light bulb that you are.

Are you a 25-watt, 40-watt, 60-watt, 100-watt, or 150-watt?

The amount of light that you emit form your energy field will determine all of your results.

If you want better results now.

Go to the source.

Thought energy travels just under 300,000 km/s.


Think, feel, and act your way towards the 3% freeway of freedom.

Some people have ambition, desire and drive. However, these ingredients alone will not do the trick.

Change only occurs when you alter your belief system.

Are you ready, willing, and able to eradicate old entrenched ideas in favor of a new idea that has the potential of creating a brand new life with all types of possibilities?

Rosa Parks was ready.

Rosa Park’s decisive moment was the beginning of change.

You can’t prepare for that moment but when it shows up, you can also be the catalyst for positive, proactive forward movement change.
