The GOOD Influence - HER

RHONDA WOFFORD

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world", Gandhi. I love this quote; it gets right to the heart of the matter, "You MUST BE"! At "The GOOD Influence - HER" podcast, I hope to help you empower your thinking, actions, and reactions to promote the highest quality in your life. It may not be a quick fix, but it just takes 10-15 minutes a month to listen to my experience, strength, and hope. Who am I?, an "African-American" woman, with a BA, BS, and a Master's Degree. A Meteorologist, former TV Weather Anchor, radio personality, and Homecoming/Beauty Queen. I made a lot of money owning an Administrative Law Firm. Yet, I am a person who suffered with suicidal ideations and an eating disorder. I am a survivor! As I am with this podcast, be bold and brave to be the change you wish to see in the world. Help yourself be accountable for your own happiness and, see the positive in everything. #thegoodinfluenceherpodcast #baggagelugaggeorcarryonpodcast #thatswhatsimportanttodaypodcast read less

SEASON 3 EPISODE 10 - "ASFELAGI = IMPORTANT "IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO TAKE A SHORT CUT!""You must be the change you wish to see in the world," Mahatma GandhiHi everyone!In this episode I am encouraging you to learn this amharic word, "Asfelagi," which means important.Well, what is important or asfelagi worthy?It is important to not take "short cuts" in life.I am preaching this because I have done it especially with dieting and it never truly paid off the way I wanted it too.Painful hard work does pay off...always.Today, I have the wonderful benefits of a "lifestyle" change.  I eat organic and healthy foods that I cook and manage. I love exercising and stretching. And I volunteer to get out of my head and into my heart.I am sharing this because I want to be that "good" influence in your life that helps you get to your goal right on time. Shorts cuts in my life were not necessarily a waste of time because I learned my lesson. But, as I believe we are all here to make each other better, I don't want you to waste your time.So, give yourself permission to do it and live through all the experiences (the painful experiences)!  Work hard through the pressure and which is disguised as the privilege. And don't take any short cuts! Take in all the benefits of honest hard work to earn your goal so it is formidable and lasts a lifetime adding joy to your life and those around you. (You will organically and naturally become a "good" influence - her or him!)So, Let's Do It!...

"You will eventually arrive.Yes! Painful hard work does pay off...always.And is really the test of it all.Will you continue to do the painful hard work regardless?We or rather I learned that I had to stop looking for the reward and stay focused on the work getting there. So, the work I did (performed) counted as quality to get me closer to my goal.I tried over and over again, many times to calculate how much hard work I had to do. I quickly learned I had poor math skills when it came to calculating getting to the finish line. I finally surrendered and just began focusing on the day-to-day tasks (incremental steps) to build my bridge to get there.Just like I have been saying all along, (the honest truth), my truth is that we have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable for long periods of time while working toward our dream, "Hilam algen or Efelighaw," in order to arrive at our destination our dream.So, let that warrior come out to win the war and not the little battles in between.Give yourself permission to do it and live through all the experiences (the painful experiences)!  Work hard through the pressure and which is disguised as the privilege. I know it is painful and frustrating to get there wherever your there is, but that is the only way to arrive at any time in your life. So, Let's Do It!...

It just doesn't make sense!!! And my response is that it just is that way. I wish it weren't, but it is. I suggest for you to remember that we go from "dark to see the light!" Isn't that a beautiful process that we as human beings get to be a part of that metamorphosis? The honest truth, my truth is that we have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable for long periods of time while working toward our dream, "Hilam algen or Efelighaw."And, that my friend is the gift! Getting comfortable in your own skin to be true to yourself in accomplishing your goal!WOW!!! I didn't even see it that way when I started out on my journey.So, do what God has put in your heart for you to do and, become a "WARRIOR" in accomplishing and living your dreams!  Give yourself permission to do it and live it!  Work through the pressure and be thankful for the privilege it brings you to transform yourself into the person you want to be.

SEASON 3 EPISODE 7 - "BE RICHER IN THE HEART!""You must be the change you wish to see in the world," Mahatma GandhiHi everyone!In this episode I am encouraging you to "BE RICHRER IN THE HEART!" Yes! The last time we met I was encouraging you to see and understand "Pressure as a Privilege!"I know that being under pressure as we understand it is very intense and difficult to deal with. But that is the pressure of working toward your goal which creates your transformation. And that is the privilege, to be able to go through this process and transform yourself, your life!Also, this process in turn will manifest itself as a "rich heart!" You gain so much more when you work towards your goal. I discovered the end result was still desirable but what I had become was much more desirable. I didn't need an outside reward to value or validate my being. Instead, I think I made the prize more valuable because of the person I had become.WOW!!! I didn't see it that way when I started out on the journey.So, do what God has put in your heart for you to do and, become a "WARRIOR" in accomplishing and living your dreams? Give yourself permission to do it and live it!  Work through the pressure and be thankful for the privilege it brings you to transform yourself into the person you want to be.

🎤SEASON 3 EPISODE 6 - "PRESSURE IS A PRIVILEGE!""You must be the change you wish to see in the world," Mahatma GandhiHi everyone!In this episode I am encouraging you to embrace this quote by the "GREAT" Billie Jean King, "PRESSURE IS A PRIVILEGE!"Yes, it is! I know pressure is so very tough to handle and this is the very reason why many people do not accomplish what God put in their heart to do.It is because of the pressure, which is the hard work, patience, the diligence, and the effort that we have to put in for an uncertain amount of time for a goal that may not be manifested.Well, that isn't the right way to think about living your dreams...right!I share in this podcast my love and admiration for my very favorite player, Rafa Nadal, the 14-time French Open champion.If there is anybody who has been under pressure it has been Rafa. He plays solo in front of crowds risking the fact of being beaten by an unknown player every time.But then he plays the match, at least 3 sets and under that tremendous pressure making every point he wins and shines like a diamond.I get so inspired by him and his tennis game and I apply that into my pageant world.We all inspire each other to live out the dream God has put in our hearts when we are obedient, work hard like a warrior, and learn to treat pressure like a privilege.Do what God has put in your heart for you to do and, become a "WARRIOR" in accomplishing and living your dream?AND...transform seeing that "Pressure as a Privilege!"Give yourself permission to do it and live it!So, Let's Do It!...

Well, that is the opposite, being a "worrier."And that is exactly why I am making this podcast. Many of you worry too much and think about how your dreams will fail more than how they will succeed. I used to be that same way. I have learned that way of thinking never helped me accomplish my true goal. It was not a safe place for me to be (playing it safe...huh?)I want you to be the person who listens to themself and plows ahead on the road to your achievements without listening to those who are trying to slay you with deadly words and actions.Do what God has put in your heart for you to do and, become a "WARRIOR" in accomplishing and living your dream? Give yourself permission to do it and live it!So, Let's Do It!...
