To my family and friends, I am known as Maisha Wynn. However, the outside world knows me as “WYNN WIN.” For me, Wynn (my last name) and Win a homonym of my last name is no accident at all because I am truly a “wynner.” As a Chicago-based Lifestyle Specialist and soon-to-be International Best Selling Author, I want to share 5 winning ways that will transform your life from ordinary to extraordinary:
1). Be Intentional With Your Words: The words you utter can either be healthy, or harmful to your overall well-being. When you become intentional with your words, you are truly giving energy to not only what you say, but how you say it. Once you give life to it, you cannot take it back. With that in mind, be mindful of every single word that rolls off your tongue and floats into the atmosphere.
2). Mind Your Thoughts: Your most powerful thoughts influence your attitude, which ultimately control your altitude in life. On a daily basis, you must be cognizant of what you feed your universe, for what you put into your mind is what you’ll get out of it. Protecting your universe at all times is key to your personal “wynns.”
3). Treasure Your Temple: When you cherish your temple (body), you cherish your universe (mind)! Your temple responds to the way you think, feel and act. This is often called the “mind/body connection.” Your personal freedom comes from living a healthy lifestyle (from what you feed your temple to allowing your universe to rest peacefully at night).
4). Give Thanks Daily: Gratitude is truly the cornerstone to your greater self. How? To have the ability to see a new horizon is golden to your life span on this earth. Waking up with a big smile on your face is the first way to give thanks to the universe. Give it a try! You will thank me later.
5). Invest In Others: You have one life! What you do with it on a daily basis will have a major impact on your future. If you ask anyone who is a philanthropist, they will tell you that investing in others is one of the greatest feelings, whether you donate your time, talent and/or tithe. It should come from a personal space of not expecting any recognition. Your biggest reward is knowing that you’ve made a difference in the life of someone other than yourself.
The Wynning Way: A Guide To Creating Success Your Way shows you how to develop your own winning lifestyle through exercises that inspire self reflection and strategies for creating the mindset of a winner. Throughout the book, Wynn shares her personal journey from tragedy to triumph and offers inspirational nuggets on the power of prayer, the effect of positive thinking plus affirmations to help you live abundantly!
Get ready to transform your existence by digging deeper to unveil the power that truly lies within you! Your time for wynning is NOW!
Enjoy an excerpt:
Early in my youth, I knew that I wanted to attend Spelman College, the famed African American women’s institution in Atlanta. The women I’d read about there reminded me a lot of the woman I admired all my life, my mother. They had a powerful presence about them and were extremely intelligent. Though she was a single mother, my mother made sure I was able to attend this esteemed institution. She left her entire world in Chicago (including family and friends), to start a new life with me in Atlanta. I mean, my mother was my biggest cheerleader.
In order for me to live the best, she made weighty sacrifices—no matter how major they may have been—so much so that she depleted her entire retirement plan so that I could not only go to Spelman, but graduate. Losing her in recent years was like losing the air you breathe. My once vibrant world felt dark and depleted. For months, all I could do was cry my sadness away. It was too painful to realize she was no longer just a phone call away. My mother was truly my favorite girl and best friend. People who I didn’t even know, knew who I was and my story because she was that proud of me. The unconditional love she showered upon me daily is what keeps me going to this very moment.
