04.11.20123 - LoVe Out Loud

There are those who speak rashly, like the piercing of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. PROVERBS 12:18

Good day! Life and death are in the power of our tongue. Many live with crippled insecurity due to what’s been spoken to them in their past. Understand that words of judgment, criticism, and failure have the ability to delay our divine destiny. We create, lead, and influence with the words we release. As leaders in our community, it’s critical that we use our words to speak blessing, healing, and building up. Multitudes of people need someone to believe in them. They’ve been wounded by the wrong words, but the right words can bring healing into their lives. Our mouth is a fountain of life. Today I (in)courage you to speak life, praise, gratitude, affirmation, honor, and hope into your world and to those around you. Your actions can change someone’s life.

God bless!

04.10.20123 - FAITH
"If you want the things that others don’t have, you must do the things that others don’t do."
Has there ever been a moment in your life when your dreams required you to step out of your comfort zone? To be totally honest with you, I’m pretty certain that I have those moments everyday! The beauty about our dreams is that it’s a constant reminder about how strong our faith is. In the natural, fear and uncertainty try to make a home in our hearts. Today, I encourage you to take a step of faith until there are no more steps to take. Realize friends, life happens in the space between. There’s abundance and beauty in the unknown. Our faith strengthens in oceans deep but it’s in those very moments that we discover who we are. If our dreams didn’t require us to stretch, we’d be living in a state of mediocrity. Our lives are full of destiny and purpose, therefore it's our responsibility to be willing to live at risk with only hopes to build wings on the way down.

God bless!

03.18.2012 - DOING IT NOW

"We are given one life, and the decision is ours whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind, or whether to act, and in acting, to live." - Omar Nelson Bradley

We don't need endless time and perfect conditions to pursue our heart's desires. Do it now. Do it today. Let's not waste another second putting thought into the actions we have in mind. Get up and let's go! The time is now.

God bless!

02.23.2012 - OPPORTUNITIES

"I am prepared to go anywhere, provided it be forward." - David Livingstone

Many tend to live in the past, which for the most part results to nothing. Remember that there is nothing in our power that can change what has happened to us in the past but one thing we do have is the control to look straight and see the road that lies ahead - an endless path to limitless opportunities and the time so seize every single one of them. Press forward, act now and be open to all possibilities!

God bless and have a productive day!

02.22.2012 - DIFFICULTIES

"The first rule of holes: When you're in one, stop digging." - Molly Ivins

There's a special attractiveness in difficulty that makes us who we are for without them we won't know our own strength. Are you looking at your difficulties as an opportunity to pity yourself or an opportunity to grow? Never surrender yourself to discouragement or despair because it is through difficulties that we realize our potential.

God bless!

02.21.2012 - LEADERSHIP

"He said to them, "Why are you fearful? Do you still have no faith?" - Mark 4:40

A leader must be calm in the storm. Turbulent times are sure to come, and when they do, it is imperative for a leader to be a calming, steadying influence. A storm is a true test of leadership so when the storm hits, be ready to calm those around you in its midst.

Have a great day!

02.20.2012 - TAKING ACTION

"To think too long about doing a thing often becomes its undoing." - Eva Young

Action is a critical ingredient to get the success we want out of life. Many like to daydream about the possiblities of their future but few understand that the ability to get up and take action is what it's going to take to get there. Without action we can cripple our future. At the end of the day success is the power to keep taking action, keep trying and keep pushing toward our goals. When we do, we WILL get there!

God bless!

02.12.2012 - SACRIFICE

"Nothing worthwhile is gained without sacrifice" - Martin Luther King Jr.

Dreams are meant for us to grow into but in order to fulfill that dream we must stay focused on the sacrifices that it's going to take to get there. Our daily choices to stay on the narrow road to success is critical in order to make our dreams a reality. We must make the right choices about our diet, our sleeping habits, and yes...even the friends we surround ourselves with. We must be willing to cut back on the activity that deters us from progressing. The majority choose the easy path however if we're not willing to face difficulties, sacrifice sleep for work, apply self-discipline and seek new challenges then that dream will remain just a dream.

God bless!

02.08.2012 - PREPARATION

"If one asks for success but prepares for failure, he will get the situation he has prepared for." - Florence Scovel Shinn

Preparation is the key to success. Opportunity will come knocking on your door but the question is, are you ready to answer that? The best preparation for great work tomorrow is to do great work today!

God bless!

02.07.2012 - VISION

“If a man does not know what port he is steering for, no wind is favorable to him." - Seneca

It's important to take a step back and reassess if our goals still excite us. If we don't have a vision of who we want to be, how we want to succeed or what we want out of life, we'll begin to lack drive and our life will become just an order of events. Vision is not seen as a dream, but a reality that has yet to come into existence. Let's continue to see beyond our current reality, focus on things that give our life purpose and meaning and drive ourselves to action!

Have a blessed day!

01.28.2012 - FOCUS

"To be everywhere is to be nowhere." - Seneca

Focus shapes our lives so in order to re-design our lives, we must reshape our focus. We are the directors of our lives and with that comes much responsibility to execute our purpose and dreams with tunnel vision. Our thoughts create our reality - where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go. Like Mark Twain once said "You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus."

God bless!

01.27.2012 - FORGIVENESS

“Holding a grudge is like letting someone live rent free in your head. And forgiving them is like handing them an eviction notice." - Unknown

Forgiveness is not something you do for someone else but more importantly it's to free yourself from the continuation of pain and anger. At the end of the day, we end up hurting ourselves more than the person who hurt us if we don't learn how to let go and get free. Always remember that to forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you!

God bless!

01.26.2012 - PASSION & RISKS

"It's not because things are difficult that we dare not venture. It's because we dare not venture that they are difficult." - Seneca

One of life's greatest risks is never daring to risk. To become a success, we must give this game of life everything we have. But first, we must first apply our energy to the passion that fuels us from the inside and have the willingness to perform relentlessly. Without walking into the unknown, the chances of life falling stale will be greater than the chance of bearing fruit. Step out of your comfort zone....NOW is the most opportune time.

God bless!

01.24.2012 - SELF-CONTROL

“Nothing gives one person so much of an advantage over another as to remain unruffled in all circumstances.”

In life, we’re always faced with unforeseen situations when our emotions and vulnerability has the muscle to get the best of us. However, if we learn how to speak to our circumstances and learn to rule oneself, we can avoid dealing with unnecessary fire. Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard, keep your cool and pick your battles wisely!

God bless!

1.21.2012 - PERSISTENCE

“That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved.”

Time and again, history has revealed that the most prominent leaders were regularly confronted with heartbreaking obstacles before they prevailed. There is nothing that you're going through or have gone through that someone hasn't found a solution to. Every cause has its effect and every problem has its solution. The way to win is to be resilient to defeat, stick with problems longer, persist while others are quitting and success will be inevitable.

God bless!

"In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity."

Good evening! Don't get stuck surviving when what you really want to do is thrive.

Remember that success is met when difficulties arise.

"Sometimes you have to change your life to see your life change."

Good day! Without change, how can we expect to see our lives unfold into our dreams? Old beliefs do not lead you to new ideas therefore change is necessary.

07.17.2011 : PROGRESS

"Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning."

Good day! Life is a constant work in progress therefore it's extremely important that we invest in ourselves to grow in life rather than stagnating. The idea of progress, of moving forward, is generally what gives a direction to our lives. Absence of progress is a result of having an absence of goals. As long as we have goals, the notions of progress surround our daily life, providing us with a sense of whether we are on the right track or not. Trap your goals leaving no room for nothing else but progress!

"Some people are so poor they only have money!"

Good day! Wealth is not so much about the pocket but more so about the well being of our mind, body and soul. So often we associate wealth with monetary expressions but ultimately real wealth is found in the things that make life worthwhile. In life, it's necessary to have a healthy balance of these 4 core assets: EMOTIONAL, MENTAL, PHYSICAL and SPIRITUAL. Let's continue to exercise these assets with our will power in pursuing our vision and dream of a good life!

“He who ignores discipline despises himself, but whoever heeds correction gains understanding."

Good day! We all have weaknesses that are challenging to face. However, without the courage to confront those battles we are only creating more difficulties for ourselves and ultimately delaying our growth from becoming better human beings. Knowledge of self is the first step to the truth and reality about who we are. Let's stand up, stand strong and press forward with the willingness to defeat our shortcomings.

"Always do what you are afraid to do."

Good day! Fear is put into our lives for a purpose. It gives us the opportunity to stretch and grow.

Seeing the world, meeting new people, learning about things we never knew existed will truly broaden our mind and views of the world. It also gives us insight and understanding into ourselves and other cultures. Never fail to forget that if we allow ourselves to transform our souls through our everyday journeys, we will only be elevated to a level that we would have never imagined! Everyday is a journey, to where you want to be and who you are becoming!

p.s. Running in the Eternal City was a success too!

Good night!

God bless!

“"May your days be many and your troubles be few. May all God's blessings descend upon you. May peace be within you. May your heart be strong. May you find what you're seeking wherever you roam.”"

As adversity continues in Japan, it's important to take a step back to keep all those who are suffering in your heart and in your mind. Never disregard the power of prayer! Remember that when prayer goes up....Blessings come down!

03.14.2011 : OPPORTUNITY

“ "Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them.”"

Good evening! Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can because there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did. You don't luck into things as much as you'd like to think you do....you build it step by step. Those who refuse to embrace a unique opportunity loses the prize as surely as if they had failed. Wherever it is you are, develop the opportunity at hand!

God bless!

03.06.2011 : AWAKENING

"There is only one time when it is essential to awaken. That time is now."

Even with our eyes open, we sometimes go through our days as if we're half awake. These are the only days we have and we need to be aware of them. Don't waste your time dreaming of success. Instead wake up and work hard at it!

Have a wonderful day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

03.05.2011 : PERSEVERANCE

03.04.2011 : PATIENCE

"The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it."

Good evening! True patience is a moral characteristic displayed in the face of difficulty and in every moment of life. It requires the demonstration of determination and consistency during times of ease and hardship, and is a lifelong endeavour that never goes astray, even for a moment.

God bless!

2.22.2011 : INDEPENDENCE

"You can either run the day or the day runs you."

If you are not for yourself, then who will be? Every day you spend drifting away from your goals is a waste of not only of that day, but also of the additional day it takes to regain lost ground. Remember, don't count the days - make the days count!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

2.21.2011 : FAITH

"Faith is not a hothouse plant that must be shielded from wind and rain, so delicate that it has to be protected, but is like the sturdy oak which becomes stronger with every wind that blows upon it. An easy time weakens faith, while strong trials strengthen it."

Faith is like a muscle. We must continue to exercise our faith in order to strengthen it's use in times of adversity.

Have a wonderful day!

2.18.2011 : COMPOSURE

"“My mind and body have been cooled and soothed; I have been blessed with patience and composure."”

Yes.....keeping our composure can be difficult when our natural impulse is to express our own feelings and emotions without considering the consequences. Let us constantly be aware of the affect our behavior might
have on others and mindful of our own actions. When you're composed, you're in control of your thoughts and emotions.

Have a great night!

God bless!

2.17.2011 : OBSTACLES

"The only real failure in life is the failure to try."

Great opportunities are brilliantly disguised as impossible situations. Keep persevering through obstacles as that is what is necessary to meet the next victories in life.

Have a good evening!

"It has never been, and never will be, easy work! But the road that is built in hope is more pleasant to the traveler than the road built in despair, even though they both lead to the same destination."

but it is the journey that matters, in the end!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

2.08.2011 : THOUGHTS

"Either make the tree sound and its fruit sound, or make the tree rotten and its fruit rotten; for the tree is known and recognized and judged by its fruit."

Good evening! A tree is known for its fruit and the same is true for us. Our thoughts bear fruit. Think good thoughts and the fruit in our life will be good. Think bad thoughts and the fruit in our life will be bad. For as you think in your heart, so you are. It's that simple....

Good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

2.07.2011 : AWAKENING

"There is only one time when it is essential to awaken. That time is now."

Good evening! With another blessed week ahead of us let us move forward with our eyes open. Many have the tendency to just "get through" the day as if they're sleepwalking. The reality is, that we must realize that these are the only days we have and we need to be aware of them. There are no dress rehearsals for this show called life, THIS IS IT!

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

2.06.2011 : PERFORMANCE

"There's no such thing as shoulda, woulda, coulda. If you shoulda and coulda, you wouda done it."

Good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

2.05.2011 : VISION

"One may have good eyes and yet see nothing."

Good evening! Many get so used to doing things a certain way, that they can't see that there are better ways of doing those things. Let's be aware to constantly keep our eyes open in order to truly see what's around us. Life is too short to take the world for granted.

Have a good weekend!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

2.02.2011 : WORK

"You will never possess what you are unwilling to pursue."

Good evening! All of us have desires to attain new dreams but many shy away from that dream when it requires much effort and hard work. Be careful what you wish for because when that moment arrives you may just have to work hard for it! Go hard or go home :)

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

2.01.2011 : LIFE

"There is no end. There is no beginning. There is the only infinite passion of life."

Good evening! On a scale of 1 - 10, how passionate are you about life? We all have the ability to motivate ourselves; to concentrate on our purpose; and to get ourselves excited about what we do. A vital attitude for us constantly improve and progress in life is OUR PASSION.

Good night!

"Give us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for- because unless we stand for something we shall fall for anything."

Have a wonderful week!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

1.19.2011 : DISCOVERY

"Discovery consists in seeing what everyone else has seen and thinking

01.16.2011 : VISION

"A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more."

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

01.15.2011 : CHALLENGE

01.12.2011 : PRESENT

"To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy... is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them."

Good evening! There is no time like the present! The future hasn't happened yet and the past is gone. The only moment we have is right here and now. Make the best of those moments, the moments that we're in, with
an unrelenting fire of passion and enthusiasm!

Good evening! Become a better you by breaking through trying situations. In order to see the sunshine, you must go through the rain!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION
01.07.2011 : LIMITS

"In the law of God, there is no statute of limitations."

Good evening! A limited mentality is confined in a world that limits themselves to fewer possibilities by the narrowness of their vision. Dare to be what you are and
believe in your own individuality! Don't be afraid to make change for what defines a leader is one who goes above and beyond into the direction of greatness and
excellence. Know that there are no limits to the human capacity for intelligence, imagination and wonder! Always remember that the limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible.

Have a good night!

01.06.2011 : BIRTHDAYS

"And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."

Good evening! As I celebrate my 27th birthday today, I've realized that it's not just one day to be celebrated but more importantly it is about the journey lived up to this day that I'm forever grateful for. The gift of LIFE filled with abundant joy, overflow and blessings that I am celebrating. Life is meant to be lived! Don't be afraid to live your passions!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

01.02.2011 CREATIVITY

"Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way."

Good evening! Being creative is a source of self expression. Rather than performing to someone else's standards, let's not play by the rules and instead create our own rules and our own map that others will be inspired by. We will be limiting ourselves by submitting to convention and conformity. Don't settle for the obvious, the mundane, the mediocre, and
the cliche. We are not to be satisfied with our first discovery, for the person who keeps pushing, is the joy of discovery and accomplishment. Let's invent new ways to do old things and with the new year ahead of us let us have faith in our vision, faith in our craft, and faith that the creative process is working regardless of anything that tries to work against you!

Have a good night!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

12.20.2010 : ADAPTABILITY

"Learn to adjust yourself to the conditions you have to endure, but make a point of trying to alter or correct conditions so that they are most favorable to you."

Good evening! To get the most out of our talents, we must first be open to change. There will be times when we have to deal with situations that do not fit into our
ideas but being flexible and versatile is an advantage if we have the desire to succeed. Flexibility or adaptability is being responsive to change. Remember that whatever we have chosen to believe and assume can be challenged and is changeable. Let's develop a sense of curiosity, shift our views and look at ourselves, things and people in new ways.

Good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

12.19.2010 : COMMITMENT

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results."

Good day! There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either in or out. Maximizing on commitment will unlock the doors of imagination, allow vision and will give us the right tools necessary to turn our dreams into reality.

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

12.18.2010 : ORIGINALITY

"There is just one life for each of us: our own."

Have a great weekend!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

12.02.2010 : CHANGE

"Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress."

Good evening! Do not be an architect of decay by rejecting change. Remember that where there is no struggle, there is no progress! Many are uncomfortable with the idea of change but don't realize that it is that exact mentality that will stop them from real progress and growth. Adapt to change...it'll keep you moving forward!

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso

11.30.2010 : ACTION

"The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs."

Good evening! Many people may doubt what you say but they won't doubt what you do. The actions of men is a reflection of their thoughts. Act on your ideas and remember that an idea is only an idea until it is put
into action. Make a statement with your actions, not your words.

Good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

11.27.2010 : ADVERSITY

“Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.”

Good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

11.25.2010 : THANKFUL

"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving."

Good day! Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. The highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

I thank God for YOU! You have been a blessing in my life that I will forever treasure.

11.14.2010 : OPPORTUNITY

"In receiving opportunities we must not remain comfortable in the blessing but instead be fruitful and multiply the blessing."

Good evening! We create increase by working with what we have been given. We are all supplied with many seeds (gifts and talents) but it is our responsibility to cultivate and use them. We all have great things planted within us and as we continue to water and nourish what has been planted we will see increase. We are all special, uniquely called to bear fruit in
every good work!

possibilities!

Have a good night!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

11.10.2010 : FEAR

"You block your dream when you allow fear to grow bigger than your faith."

Good evening! Fear is put in our lives for a reason. It's what you do with that fear that separates you from the rest. It can tear you down or it can build you up. It can make you second best or it can make you the best. It's easy to be comfortable, anyone can be that, but it's getting through that uncomfortable stage of fear and allowing faith to spring forth that's going to make you not just good....but GREAT!

Have a wonderful night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

11.08.2010 : FUTURE

"Put your future in good hands - your own."

Good day! No one is accountable for our future except for ourselves! No matter what circumstance your dealing with, it's important that you speak to your circumstance and not let your circumstance speak to you. Hold yourself accountable and TAKE CONTROL!

I just finished running the NYC marathon yesterday - what an INCREDIBLE experience it was! 4 marathons down, 1 more to go! Mission I'm-POSSIBLE in full effect!

Have a good day!

11.04.2010 : GOALS

"In the long run, men only hit what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high!"

Good evening! Success belongs to those who keep on shooting for the stars. Goals that are too easy to attain are also too easy for others to gain! Challenge yourself, risk more than what others think is safe and most importantly GO HARD OR GO HOME!

Have a Good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

11.02.2010 : PEACE

"It is only as we take the attitude of stillness, of listening, of
awareness that supply begins to pour out from within. So it becomes a matter of relaxing and letting supply catch up with us, instead of relying on people or things on the outside of us."

Good day! Peace begins from within. Allowing outside opinions to steer your emotions will dilute your peaceful state of mind. Stay quiet, meditate and allow the flow of peaceful energy fill your spirit from within.

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

11.01.2010 : SELF

"Self is the only prison that can ever bind the soul."

harmony and you will be blessed abundantly!

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

10.30.2010 : ADVERSITY

"Difficulties are meant to rouse you, not discourage you. The human spirit is meant to grow stronger by conflict. Adversity causes some men to break,
others to break records. Let your test become a testimony. Invite adversity in."

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

10.28.2010 : WISDOM

"Possess things, as necessary, but let no thing possess you."

Good day! It is better to be possessed by knowledge and wisdom then to be possessed by worldly things. Be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions. Money
can buy amusement, but not joy. Money can buy a bed, but not sleep. Money can buy companions, but not friends. Money can buy a house, but not peace. Money can buy a medicine, but not health. Money can buy sex, but not
intimacy. Money can buy therapy, but not redemption. The point is that in order to have possessions without possessions being possessed by them, you must have a godly value system. One thing that I'm certain of is that we
all possess one gift that should not be taken for granted....the gift of life that no material thing can measure up to!

Have a good night!

God bless!

10.24.2010 : HOPE

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow."

Good day! We must be filled with hope, we must think hope, and we must speak hope. Hope is the foundation on which faith stands. Some people try to have faith after having lost hope but let's refuse to stop hoping no matter how dry the bones may seem, how dead the situation may appear,
or how long the problem has been around! Let's remain positive and become a "Prisoner of hope," and we will be restored double everything we have lost!

Have a good night!

God bless!

10.20.2010 : INDIVIDUALITY

"Understand originality to be, not something that no one has ever done before, but something that originates in you. Though it have been expressed by others a thousand times, your own sincere expression of it will make it uniquely yours."

Good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

10.19.2010 : LEADERSHIP

"In any position of leadership, inspire others by your example. What you do has more influence than anything you say. And what you are has a greater influence than either."

Good evening! Leading by example is the key to inspiring others! Practice what you preach!

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

10.18.2010 : PURPOSE

"There are no accidents.....there is only some purpose that we have yet to understand."

Good evening! It's not what life hands you that's important, but what you do with the opportunities life presents. We are where we are today for a reason. Often times we see two people go through the same event, but one comes out better because of it and the other comes out worst. Remember that we may not be able to control the event but we can control how we feel about the event and the actions we take afterwards!

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

10.13.2010 : TRIUMPH

"The difference between try and triumph is a little umph!"

Good day! Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there! Press forward and try a little harder! Much good work is lost for the lack of
a little more. Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul into everything you do. Remember, sweat is the cologne of accomplishment!

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

10.07.2010 : PATIENCE

"Patience is the ability to know how to count down before you blast off."

Good evening! The state of endurance under difficult circumstances is what defines patience! Difficulties happen to teach and test our faith. Believe that there is an advantage behind every misfortune and stay calm when you are faced with adversity. Use your experience to challenge yourself to stay strong!

Good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

10.04.2010 : DREAMS

"There are those who dream and wish and there are those who dream and work."

Good evening! In order to manifest a dream into fruition one must wake up and have the willingness to work towards those dreams. A dream is only a
dream until you put your heart's desires into action. With consistent action it's only a matter of time that a dream becomes a tangible result. Stay committed to your purpose and live your dreams!

Have a good night!

God Bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

10.03.2010 : DREAMS

"A dream comes with much business and painful effort."

Good day! In a fast-paced world that is both challenging and demanding it is important to have dreams and visions. Without them it is easy to become complacent and fail to grow beyond where you are right now. However, working toward your dreams and visions requires hard work. Those who want to do great things without having to work hard will never see it come to pass. Hold fast to your dreams and you will be led into the miraculous victories in your life!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso

09.30.2010 : RISK

"If you don't risk anything, then you risk even more."

It is better to deal in action rather than dealing in regret! Many opportunities are lost by deliberating. Commit, Act and Succeed!

Have a good evening!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

09.24.2010 : I'm-POSSIBLE

"Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools."

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

God Bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

09.18.2010 : BLESSINGS

"Better to lose count while naming your blessings than to lose your blessings counting your troubles."

Good day! It's important to take 5 minutes of your day to sit quietly and reflect on all the blessings in your life. Lately, I have been blessed with abundant overflow and I'm just so thankful to God from whom all blessings flow, and so thankful to each and every one of you, my family and friends, who enrich my life tremendously! Each day brings its own individual wonder. Remember that there's no disaster that can't become a blessing and no blessing that can't become a disaster. Live in each moment with zest and enthusiasm and your blessings will be multiplied! Stay grounded with a strong foundation and you won't lose sight of the beautiful things flowing into your life!

Have a great evening!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

09.12.2010 : FAITH

"If you can believe it, you can conceive it."

Good evening! You are what you believe! Visualize your ideas and dreams coming to pass and through dedication and hard work you can give birth to any dream. Speak your world into FRUITION!

Have a good night!

God bless!

xoxo - Samantha / FRUITION

09.09.2010 : ENTHUSIASM

"Energy is equal to desire and purpose."

Good evening! Enthusiasm is contagious for it moves mountains! Remember, what counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog! Wake up with a smile and go after life. Live it, enjoy it, taste it, smell it, feel it!

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

09.06.2010 : SEVA

"I slept and dreamt that life was a joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy."

Good day! Our personal spiritual growth requires that we consider carefully our influence in the world. Our service in life should not be based on living for ourselves and ourselves only. We all have a voice....a voice of influence. How incredible is it to know that WE have the potential to make a difference in this world. We are all given what it takes, but it's how we use those specific gifts and talents that's going to be the foundation for change. Life is bigger than living for ourselves. It's about bringing joy and service to those around that will show you that LIFE is about being a positive influence and being blessing to one another! Live for what matters most and use your VOICE to make a difference!

Have a beautiful day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

09.01.2010 : VISUALIZATION

"If you can believe it, you can conceive it."

Good day! We can only receive what we see ourselves receiving. Prosperity begins in the mind and ultimately we grow only as much as our horizons allow.

Have a great evening!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.30.2010 : COMMITMENT

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstances permit.
When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only RESULTS."

Good evening! It's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal that will push you through to the promises ahead of you. Stay committed to excellence as that will enable you to attain the success you seek! Remember that unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.

Have a great evening!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.26.2010 : WISDOM

"Power without wisdom collapses under its own weight."

Good evening! Wisdom is the essence of an enlightened life and can lead you to the right direction when facing daily challenges. It is through wisdom that we have the ability to see beneath the surface. Get wisdom, get understanding!

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.25.2010 : SECURITY

"Without danger we cannot get beyond danger....Each one of us requires the spur of insecurity to force us to do our best."

Good day! It's important to live life fearless of the unknown, the complex, and the inexplicable. Lack of security is a good positive force that will push us to reach greater heights!

Have a wonderful day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.24.2010 : FUTURE

"The promise before you is always greater than the pain behind you."

Good evening! To move on to the bright future that's in store for us we must leave our past behind us. Set your burdens free knowing that your day of victory and restoration is ahead of you!

Good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.23.2010 : ACTION

"What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say."

Good day! Actions speak louder than words. If you have something to do that is worthwhile doing, don't talk about it...do it. Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action! As stated in the Chinese Proverbs...Words are mere bubbles of water, but deeds are drops of gold!

Have a great day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.21.2010 : GETTING GOING

"The secret of getting ahead is getting started."

Good day! The only things that we'll regret are the things we don't do. Although there are risks and costs to a program of action, they are far less than the long range risks and costs of comfortable inaction. If we really want to live, we'd better start at once to try!

Have a great Saturday!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.20.2010 : CHANGE

"Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights."

Good evening! Change is a challenge and an opportunity, not a threat. It is in embracing change that we break old patterns and open ourselves up to new worlds emerging.

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.15.2010 : REVELATION

"We turn to God for help when our foundations are shaking, only to learn that it is God who is shaking them."

Good evening! Sometimes we are thrown speed bumps in our path but the real test is how we will handle it. Be at peace and listen to God as He presents us with
challenges and if you listen closely He'll give us solutions too. Remember that we cannot afford to become so comfortable and rest upon our own praise and forget Who is the source of our strength and blessings!

Have a good evening!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.14.2010 : SELF-RELIANCE

"Every tub must stand on its own bottom."

Good evening! We've all got to do our own growing on our own. Do not rely completely on any other human being for no man may make another free. Remember that we meet all of life's greatest tests alone. Do for yourself or do without.

Have a beautiful evening!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.10.2010 : FAITH

"Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible."

Good day! Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Remember to walk by faith, not by sight. Make it your duty to do the possible and God will do the impossible!

Have a good evening!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso/ FRUITION

08.07.2010 : ENTHUSIASM

"If you aren't fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm."

Good day! Every production of genius must be the production of enthusiasm. Remember, you've got to sing like you don't need the money, love like you'll never get hurt, dance like there's nobody watching but most importantly you've got to come from the heart if you want it to work! Only our passions and enthusiasm for life can elevate our soul to great things!

Have a beautiful day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.04.2010 : INDIVIDUALITY

"You were born an original. Don't die a copy."

Good day! Our lives have purpose and meaning. We're not here just to fill space or to be a background character in someone else's movie. At the end of the day, nothing would be the same if we didn't exist. Know who you are and what gives meaning to your life. Accept no ones definition of your life and define yourself!

Have a blessed day!

Godspeed!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.03.2010 : POSITIVITY

"A healthy attitude is contagious but don't wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier."

Good day! Whether you're at home, in the workplace, or among friends, be the person who exudes optimism, and you will find it reflected right back at you. If you had a challenge ahead of you, what kind of people would you want to be surrounded with? Pessimistic people are likely to remind you of failure while optimistic people give you reasons to succeed. Think of the people who are a joy to be around and gravitate towards people who approach life with pleasant expectations. Living a satisfied life is one of the defining challenges of our life, and it is a challenge best met with optimism. Be positive!

Have an abundant day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

08.02.2010 : FOCUS

"Life's not a blur.....if you FOCUS."

Good day! All that we are is a result of what we have thought. Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand and you'll be guaranteed to produce success! Remember.....A person who aims at nothing is sure to hit it! Focus!

Have a prosperous week!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.31.2010 : GREATNESS

"History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it."

Good day! History is written by those who fight their way to Victory! Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success. Losers visualize the penalties of failure while winners visualize the rewards of success. Your past may not be changed but your future is spotless! Live your life as an open book and remember that you either add years to your life or add life to your years.
The choice is yours.

Have a beautiful Saturday!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.30.2010 : COURAGE

"The greatest test of courage is to bear defeat without losing heart."

Good evening! To be courageous means to be afraid but to go a little step forward anyway. The bravest thing you can do is to profess courage and act accordingly. That type of courage will sure get you from one moment to the next! Don't lose heart and keep going!!!

Have a good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.27.2010 : PURPOSE

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give!"

Good evening! Service to others is the rent we pay for our room here on earth!

Good night!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.25.2010 - PERSEVERANCE

"Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did!'

Good day! With a little more persistence and little more effort, what seems impossible can turn into a glorious success! I learned this lesson today while running the San Francisco Marathon. After running through the challenging hills and fighting mile after mile to complete 26.2 miles, what seemed like Mission Impossible finally translated into Mission I'm-Possible! Take the "T" off of CAN'T and your "I can't" into "I CAN!" Live with faith.....It'll always get you further than where you were before!

Have a beautiful Sunday!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.23.2010 : JOURNEY

"A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step."

Good day! Don't wait for something big to occur. Start where you are, with what you have, and that will always lead you into something greater. The distance is nothing. It's the first step that's the most important! Remember that the person who moves a mountain begins by carrying small stones.

Have a beautiful Friday!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.22.2010 : DREAM

"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes."

Good day! All the wonders you seek are within yourself. Every day, in every way follow your instincts. That is where true wisdom manifests itself.

Have a great day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.21.2010 : OBSTACLES

"The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us."

Good day! No matter what happens to us, we always have some control over what we do about it. We are all fitted by nature to bear any obstacles that come our way. Adversity can either cause us to break or break records!

Have a great day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.20.2010 : HUMILITY

"Humility is the only true wisdom by which we prepare our minds for all the possible changes of life."

Good day! Being humble is not the same as lacking confidence. Humility means acknowledging that we have limits, that we need support and guidance from others and that we cannot go it completely alone. We can have great confidence in ourselves while still understanding that it is impossible to be totally self-reliant in this complex, challenging, and rapidly changing world. If we acknowledge that we can't manage everything by ourselves, we are more likely to ask for help from others and in turn achieve more success!

Have a great day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.17.2010 : HEALTH

"To get rich never risk your health. For it is the truth that health is the wealth of wealth."

Good day! Build your success from the inside out. To go on in life without taking care of yourself would be foolish. In the end monetary wealth cannot be the cure to the damage that was caused through years of neglecting your well being and health. Take care of your body.... It's the only place you have to live!

Have a great day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.16.2010 : BLESSINGS

"It's better to lose count while counting your blessings than to lose your blessings counting your troubles."

How many times do we miss blessings because they're not packaged as we expected? Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings. Break through the barriers of the past by looking at the blessings of the present because major setbacks are really divine
set ups!

Have a wonderful day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.15.2010 : LEADERSHIP

"Better to live one year as a tiger, than a hundred as a sheep."

Good evening! You'll find more fulfillment being the leader in your own life rather than living in the shadow of someone else's. Be strong and take charge of your future.

Have a good night!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.14.2010 : STRENGTH

"Learning to handle problems is like lifting weights: The more we do, the stronger we become."

Good evening! None of us wish for problems but the reality is problems occur on a daily basis. Make it a lesson learned in your most difficult times because as a result you'll become a stronger person. Never ask for a lighter burden but for broader shoulders!

Have a good evening!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.13.2010: YOU

"Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken."

Every one of us has secret dreams and desires along with seeds of greatness implanted within us. Don't allow self-doubt to discourage you from chasing your dreams. We weren't created to be ordinary nor were we given gifts so that they can go undiscovered. We are given all that we need to fulfill our destiny. All of the talents, skills, and personality traits are all treasures that were given to us to be all uniquely different. No one else has our same exact combination. So tonight, I urge you to understand that the world will not be as bright as it could be if you don't release the full glow of your gifts!

Have a blessed night!

God speed!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.11.2010 : PREPARATION

"Being filled with hope and expectation is a great place to start, but it's also a poor place to stop."

Success happens when preparation meets opportunity. Waiting for your big moment? We can't sit around wishing we were doing more and believing we have more in us. We have to put action behind our faith and live life ready to make the most of every opportunity. It's important to use and develop our gifts and talents so when opportunity presents itself, we will have the confidence to walk through those open doors!

Have a great evening!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.07.2010 : PASSION

"Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things."

Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion! Perform your work with passion and blaze with the fire that is never extinguished.

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso / FRUITION

07.06.2010 : FOCUS

"Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer."

Focus on remedies, not faults. It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso/ FRUITION

07.04.2010 : FREEDOM

"The secret of happiness is freedom. The secret of freedom is courage."

Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better. The only way to know is to walk then learn then grow. We are free the moment we wish to be! Don't be held by the chains of fear. Be brave and bold and get out of all your boxes! Set yourself free and relieve yourself from any bondage!

Have a blessed and Happy July 4th!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso/ FRUITION

07.02.2010 : GREATNESS

"Recipe for greatness? To bear up under loss, to fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief, to be a victor over anger, to smile when tears are close, to resist evil men and base instincts, to hate hate and to love love, to seek ever after the glory and the dream, to look up with an unquenchable faith in something evermore about to be, that is what any man can do, and so be great!"

Have a beautiful Friday!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso

07.01.2010 : BELIEVE

"A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him/her."

Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent. Every bad seed that's been thrown at you is another brick to lay down to use as a stepping
stone to rise up higher in what you do!

Have a great evening!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso

06.30.2010 : COURAGE

"Your current safe boundaries were once unknown frontiers."

Good day! Be inspired by the unknown grounds that await you. We gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face. Approach the unknown with an understanding that it's going to stretch you further into a life of abundance!

Have a great day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso

06.27.2010: FEAR

"Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live."

Good day! A lot of things in life don't necessarily feel good, but they are necessary to stretch you. In fact, the experiences that seem the most difficult are often the ones that bring out the best qualities in us. No matter how uncomfortable you might feel, don't shrink back from those difficulties or challenges. Instead, stand strong, knowing that you are being taken to new levels in every area of your life! Take a step of faith, let go of your fears and be a student of life!

Have a beautiful Sunday!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso

06.25.2010: WISDOM

"But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is like darkness;they do not know what makes them stumble."

Good day! Wisdom is the principle thing in life that will help our eyes look straight and keep our feet moving forward. Let's learn the ways of wisdom so that when we walk, our steps will not be hindered and when we run we will not stumble!

Have a blessed day!

God bless!

LoVe - Samantha Jo Alonso

06.24.2010: SOLUTIONS

"The important thing about a problem is not its solution, but the strength we gain in finding the solution."

In order to find a solution, we must find the strength to see the problem first. Address the problem, persevere through and your strength will give you results and answers! Have a wonderful day! God bless!

xoxo - Samantha

06.20.2010: CHANGE

"Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are."

Let's strive to confront our challenges with positivity, hope and faith which will in turn allow us to discover the treasure of our true selves! God bless!

She had a way of turning her obstacles into opportunity. Celebrate her magic.

The moment I arrived in NYC, she opened her arms with a warm embrace. I met Dani just about a year ago and our connection was immediate. Everything she does is colored by the fact that she loves God with all her heart, all her soul, all her mind, and all her strength. She knows where she came from and she knows where she’s going. She has dreams, hopes, prayers that continue to come to fruition because of her unwavering faith. I’m thankful for her and the encouragement she brings into my life. She represents possibilities. She represents strength. And most importantly she represents God.

I introduce to you (role)model Dani Evans…
