What do you do when you fall flat on your face in life? What motivates you to continue, to pick yourself back up, and continue on your journey?
A strong VISION for the future and an I CAN ATTITUDE.
I attend a Mastermind Event yearly in Orlando to sharpen my skills and to encourage myself in my journey. The name is very revealing …Master—MIND. To truly succeed you must MASTER your MIND. Your biggest challenge in reaching your life goals will be between your EARS! It will not be the competitors, it will not be your situation, it will not be your compensation plan, it will not be your home life….it will BE YOUR MIND.
I read a quote – I read daily inspirational and personal development. I know some people, and I was one of them at one time, believe that personal development is for weak people, those people who really need help in their life. Quote, “Keeping a Positive Outlook in life is hard work!” I now understand personal development books are written by those who are strong and have a strong desire to MASTER-THEIR MIND!!
I follow and surround myself with positive people. Non-positive are draining to your spirit and to your dreams. What happens when you are the non-positive person that is taking you away from your dreams and goals? A person can decide to change their words, change their habits, change their friends, change what they read, and change what they think about.
The Bible talks about not to hang around an angry man, lest you learn his ways. It is important to surround yourself with people you desire to become like. Your friends will influence your actions.
Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul. Proverbs 22:24-25
It also speaks about what you should be thinking about: to think on things that are noble, lovely, trustworthy, and of value.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8
I can be the first to admit that my thoughts and what I am thinking about do not always fit into those categories. I am making an effort to be a master… a master that started out as an apprentice at one time. Start with the two suggestions above to being on the journey to MASTER- YOUR MIND!
Even Masters do not win every fight. Even Masters FALL DOWN—it is what you choose to do after you FALL, that is the BIGGEST DETERMINATION of how much courage and fortitude you possess.
So what DO YOU DO WHEN you FALL? Do you throw up your hands and give up? Do you blame circumstances and quit? Or do you get back up and choose a different outcome…. no matter how many times you have to GET BACK UP AGAIN?
When I FALL, I am getting back up AGAIN! I choose to continue getting up till MY VISION of the future is right in front of me.
Get a STRONG VISION for your FUTURE, THINK on Things that are LOVELY, and Gain NEW SKILLS to GET to YOUR DREAM and GOAL.
MASTER- YOUR MIND It is something only you can do!! You can assemble CHEERLEADERS around you to encourage you on the journey! The task of MASTERING “YOUR MIND” is your task. Once you master your mind, you can get back up when you FALL! You can have a STEADY VISION of the FUTURE. Go MASTER YOUR DESTINY!! It will take FAITH and WORK, but I have faith you can do it. I am one of those cheerleaders. Please cheer me on as I master my mind as well.
We all have bad days, it is when we let bad days determine our lifestyle… that is when we are FAILING, A lifestyle of falling down and staying down will be a life where your MIND is MASTERING YOU! Get BACK UP!! The greatest courage is seen when YOU GET UP from a FALL and continue to MOVE FORWARD!

Danielle T. Jackson and her husband, Joey, of 21 years, became partners with Swiftfire Ministries in 2007. Holding her degree in Child and Family services, (with her specialty in “family,”) it is no shock she and her husband decided to have a large family with 5 children ranging from 3 to 20. Her last two she loving refers to as her “oil babies”, as she used oils while pregnant and oils are the only lifestyle they know. They have been known to steal her Ipad and record their own oil teaching videos. Her Young Living business and is named “Oil in the Family” to share her belief that oils can and are used for whole family wellness, even on the cat Sparks.
After she was impressed attending her first conference with Swiftfire Ministries, Danielle started assisting Swiftfire with their hospitality role. Additionally, she became a Swiftfire Health Coach, then moving forward to be a part of the Advisory Board with Swiftfire Ministries. Her deeply seeded Faith has always been an important factor for her and she has coupled this with her knowledge of oils and her eagerness to protect families from toxins and chemicals while helping to strengthen her family as well as her business. Danielle believes God made nature powerful with its untapped health benefits which naturally produce less side effects so we all could live cleaner, healthier lives. She has been an Avid Alternative Medicine researcher for over 20 years and this passion is what drew her to Young Living after trying numerous “market oils” over many years. Dr. Sharnael introduced her to Young Living oils and her family immediately noticed a difference. Danielle is passionate about keeping things natural and safe for her family and for others. She loves how natural medicine and herbs work with your body and strengthen it afterwards. She enjoys making personal care products as a hobby, but this has also helped to eliminate chemicals in her household and provide her family with the best products at a frugal cost. While looking for nontoxic baby products, she was amazed at how toxic the products were for our babies. She has been making her own soaps for 16 years as well as making bath salts and her own concoctions of oil blends from YL oils.
Danelle’s husband is a teacher, so it is no wonder her specialty is education. She values knowledge so assisting in educating others about YL oils was a natural direction to flow. She gets fulfillment when she knows she has assisted someone in feeling better about themselves and their family. She has a strong desire to change other people’s lives by empowering them to become their own educated Health Advocate. She says, “You have to read labels, learn what is going into your body…doctors, nurses are all well intended, but you have the biggest interest in your life. Become an expert on how your body works and what is best for you.”
