Happy New Year! Celebrate the Winner in You!


Celebrate the Winner in You in 2020!

It’s not just a new year, it’s a new decade! Like everyone else, I am having moments of reflections and moments of anticipation.

When I entered 2019, I made a commitment to myself to finish my books—Prayers for Success: Igniting the World to Achieve Success, I DECIDED: Moving from Resolution to Execution and Affirmations for Success: Daily Affirmations for Marketplace Influencers. That was my primary focus throughout 2019. I made the decision to place everything else aside and focus on completing an assignment that had been looming over me.

Whoa! Whoa! I achieved that assignment. The books are here! They are available right now! If you haven’t purchased yours, get them now at

This has been a journey for me, but now I am looking ahead to all that awaits me in this year’s journey. With the publishing of these books, I feel a release to move full speed ahead. Each of us have been inoculated with desires that are directly connected to our embracing the assignments God has strategically placed inside of us. The beauty of every assignment is that He has also equipped and empowered us to succeed.

As you peer into 2020 and a new decade, make the decision to fulfill every desire. If you feel you can’t accomplish them all, identify one or two that you can be committed to achieving. Believe me, when you complete the assignment it is going to bring you great joy, peace and bolster your confidence in forging you forward to the next one.

Keep in mind, that you must be committed to accomplishing all God has given you. It is more than just speaking faith name it and claim it declarations, you must have the corresponding actions to experience success in your endeavors.

For me, this year I am resurrecting previous assignments that I set aside while completing my books. Look to see Showers’ Blessing Inspire Blog and eblast, 11:59 A Minute ’til Minute Marketplace Prayer Boot Camp, Prayers for Success and Wisdom, Wealth & Riches with Jacqui as well as the return of Oh Break Out Empowerment and Leadership Experience and more.

I am exposing myself to you as an accountability factor. In order to be successful, you must put it out there so someone can hold you accountable. As you go over your commitments for the year, also identify someone whom you can trust to walk alongside you. Having that support is critical. There will be days when you will need a shoulder to lean on and there will be days when you need someone to celebrate with you as well. Never forget that God is always there with each step of your journey. You have to carve out daily time to spend with Him in meditation, prayer, fasting and consuming His Word.

God has placed so much inside each of us for us to excel and succeed. He never had any intentions for us to fail. The same winner DNA that is part of God is also a part of you. Every day God envisions you to be a winner. You must envision yourself as a winner. Winning is a mindset, regardless of what may be happening in your life. Your mindset to win propels you to be the winner you were created to be. That is the only way you are going to move successfully through 2020 and beyond through this decade.

Celebrate the Winner in You!

Happy New Year & New Decade!

Happy New Year! Enjoy the Journey!

Happy New Year,

The first day of the new year marks the end of the Christmas Holiday season. Our concerns turn to the cares of the routines of our lives. Many are preparing to go to work the next day. Suddenly, the festivities of the season begin to distance itself behind us. We embark on another fresh canvass of 365 days.

Many have written resolutions in hopes that a new year will provide a fresh perspective. In many instances, it does. A new year is a continuation of your journey. It would be great if everything suddenly changed at the stroke of midnight, but that isn’t the case. True transformation only takes place in our daily journey. Resolutions only bring transformation when we are committed to the daily routine of our journey. If there is no commitment to the transformative power of our daily routine, the resolutions will remain on that paper until the next year.

The journey of a year is that you are moving every day in a mindset to achieve success. It doesn’t matter the magnitude of the success, as along as you have a success mentality that propels you through the year. It’s a journey. The success of the journey begins and ends with your commitment to enjoying all the nuances that the journey entails—the good, the bad and the indifferent.

What you have to know is that each day and each experience is making 2019’s journey a success. With every day and experience, you are growing in so many ways. Your faith is increasing. Your confidence is bolstered. Your relationships are strengthened. Every aspect of your life experiences a metamorphosis of success in the journey.

Enjoy the journey! You’re on a path to achieve illimitable success in 2019!

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas! Enduring Christmas Joy!


Today is Christmas once again, according to the calendar. On December 25th, we celebrate Christmas, virtually all around the world. We gather with family and friends to spend a joyous holiday eating, laughing and just enjoying each other’s company.

Then, the joyous festivities come to an end. Before we know it, we are back into the humdrum of life. The hectic schedules, the rudiments of work with its demanding deadlines and responsibilities, not to mention our commitments to family and friends. We find ourselves right back trying to juggle our demanding schedules. Somehow, the joy of Christmas becomes a blur as the days distant themselves from December 25th.

The joy associated with Christmas can be experienced every day throughout the year. It is an intense feeling that transcends happiness. It is rooted in longing and nurturing a relationship with Jesus. At Christmas we steal away from our frenetic lifestyles to celebrate the birth of Jesus. His birth represents communion with Him. We emulate God when He unselfishly gave His only begotten son by spreading love and joy and giving of gifts. During this time, we give unselfishly of ourselves with presents and the ultimate gift of our presence. All of these brings us Christmas joy.

I implore upon you not to abandon the joy of Christmas when December 25th comes to end but stretch out Christmas joy throughout the year. Make time to gather with family and friends. Give the best gift of your presence to those who feel lonely or are alone. Give gifts to those less fortunate. Most importantly, find time to steal away every day to bask in the presence of Jesus. You will emerge with a renewed vigor in spreading and experiencing Christmas joy throughout the entire year.

Have a Merry Awesomely Blessed Joyous Christmas!

Just be thankful to God for opening the windows of heaven and pouring out blessing after blessing after blessing, enabling you to pour out continuous blessings of love and time to others during this Thanksgiving season.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Blessing to ya’

Words Frame Our Word | Showers’ Blessing Inspire | Jacqui Showers

There is something to be said about the words we use and how we use them. Our words portray who we are for all the world to see. They frame our world and are a representation of the image we project. Our daily vernacular either builds us up or destroys. Faith words bring life and fear-based ones don’t. You make the choice about the image you want to project. #showersblessing #ohbreakout #themeplace #IDECIDED #jacquishowers

Words. A Selfie | Showers’ Blessing Inspire | Jacqui Showers

Remember when it was considered vanity to take pictures of yourself. Toss that notion out of the window. I’m amazed how many people take pictures looking in the mirror. Do you think they wanted to have their picture taken so badly that they couldn’t wait for someone else to do it? I don’t think that it is the case because sometimes there is more than one person in the picture. These past several years, selfies have invaded our lives and become all the craze.

I recall when selfies were just emerging. A selfie is, according to Oxford Dictionaries, “A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.” Although the word selfie made its advent by an inebriated man in Australia in 2002, who fell, busted his lip, took a self-portrait and sent it his friends labeling it as such, it has gained more popularity within the last several years. Now millions take selfie photographs and post and send them everywhere. They have even gotten some high-profile people in trouble.

Words fascinate me primarily because they appear to have a life of their own. I think that we take them for granted because they are a part of our everyday vernacular. We use them without much deliberation about their origin or their impact. We may hear someone use a word and over time it becomes a part of our everyday usage, like selfie has done.

It is fascinating watching children learn new words. Parents are so excited when they say their first words which are usually “Mama” or “Dada”. The way the parents act you would think they have just given the presidential address. Quickly young children evolve from the one word chants impressing their parents to incessant chatter causing the parents to say, “Could you please be quiet?” Weren’t these the same people who were ecstatic that this child identified them?

Words invade our lives in such a way that we are not aware of their invasion. I’m always intrigued about the algorithms of words and how they appear to attract each other. This law of attraction has become more apparent over time. I may say a word or may be reading, and all of a sudden someone on television will say the exact word. This has happened too many times for it to be a mere coincidence and sometimes it is such an odd word that it makes me say, “Uhmmm.”

Our words have power. Life and death are inherent in words. We’ve all heard that whatever you say is what you will attract. There is something to be said about the words we use and how we use them. Like a selfie, our words illustrate a snapshot of who we are for all the word to see. In essence, we are what we speak. Negative words result in a negative snapshot; as positive words result in a positive one. You determine the snapshot of yourself. Do you want a dirty mouth or a clean one?

The usage of profanity has become so widespread that the notion of proper etiquette was thrown out the window a long time ago. From the young to the old you hear expletives hurled like nobody’s business. These profane babblings have a negative effect on our lives. It appears as though we have become insensitive to them as more and more people, regardless of age, race, gender or ethnicity, cavalierly toss them around.

I’ve become very sensitive to the words I use, even in idle conversation. Our words frame our world and they are a representation of the image we want to project. Our daily vernacular either builds us up or destroys us. Faith words bring life and fear-based words don’t. It is as simple as that.

What selfie will you snap today? Negative or positive? Life or death? Faith or fear?

Challenge: Prosper. Reproduce. Take Charge. | Showers’ Blessing Inspires | Jacqui Showers

What would you do if someone walked up to you and said, “You’ve been empowered to change the world and I am giving you everything you need to succeed.” Would you shirk back in unbelief or would you move forward? Would you walk away and say that they don’t mean it or would you trust them? Or would you allow the clamorous noise all around you to prevent you from embracing the challenge, or would you forget societal limitations and forge ahead in unbridled passion to succeed?

Many of us are waiting for that to happen as we idle away the time. It has already happened. Unfortunately, the majority of people have not taken advantage of it. You see, way back at the beginning of time you were offered that challenge with no limitations. It has been staring you in the face from the time you were born.

That’s right! From the very first day you took your first breath and let out a bellowing cry to let your Mama, Daddy and the doctor and nurses know you were alive, the challenge has been there. Along the way things happened that take your perspective off the challenge and evoke a measure of fear that causes you not to pursue the challenge.

You were given the challenge to, “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge!” In essence, you have been empowered to use every resource known to man as you take authority over what God has entrusted you with in servicing Him and humankind. In doing so, everything you do will transform the landscape of this world in trajectory with its intended purpose and yours.

Everything that you need to fulfill the challenge was craftily placed inside of you, along with a blueprint instructing you what to do and how to do it. Oftentimes, the blueprint is not accessed and you meander through life trying to figure it out on your own. Not only was the blueprint placed inside of you, but each of us have access to a manual for prosperous living that enables us to prosper, reproduce, transform the earth and take charge.

The challenge is there. All you have to do is take it. Forget all the negative experiences that has happened to you. If you can’t forget them use them in your pursuit to fulfill the challenge. Let go of all the negative stimuli echoing from society that tries to inflict gender, racial, age, socio-economic or whatever barriers on you. Overcome them and forge forward.

The challenge has been proffered. You have been empowered. All you have to do is embrace it with fervor as you prosper, reproduce, transform the earth and take charge.

Are you challenged to succeed? What are the barriers you need to overcome? Are you ready for  the challenge to prosper, reproduce, transform the earth and take charge?

Get Back On: Finish Strong | Showers’ Blessing Inspires | Jacqui Showers

We’ve reached the last day of the first month of the year. The New Year is about assessment and evaluation. You see, we woke up on Dec 31 and meandered through the day until the clock rolled over to 12 midnight marking another calendar year. Ideally, it would be great if the miraculous happened, everything was transformed, and you were assured that everything you endeavored to do, you would do it.

There is no magic potion or quick fix. In the striking of midnight nothing really changes—except our hopes and expectations. We anticipate change, because we desperately desire for change to happen. Realistically speaking, transformation is up to each of us. God has provided you with everything you need to change. But, the question looms are you ready to make that transformation?

In our heart of hearts, we’re probably ready for change. Changing is more than just saying that we are going to change, it is actionable. In my soon to be released book, I DECIDED: Moving from Resolution to Execution, it summarizes that the best resolutions are those that you make happen. Essentially, those yearly resolutions need to jump off the page and run swiftly through the year with a determination that you will have accomplished what you initially set out to accomplish.

Every new year, or a new season, marks a launching pad to get started. Many are united in rituals of change. None is as significant as the end and beginning of the year. There are those who are serious about succeeding. Conversely, there are those where resolutions are faddish for the beginning of the year, but they have no intentions of completing them. By now, at the end of January, there are those who have already abandoned their resolutions.

Success begins and rests with you and your commitment to your resolutions. No one else in this world can make them happen. I can’t make them happen for you; conversely you can’t make them happen for me. Howbeit, we can encourage each other, but we can’t do it for each other.

Everyone needs someone to sharpen their iron, hold them accountable and provide critical positive criticism. Positive criticism may appear to be negative in some instances, but it is positive when it pushes you beyond your comfort zone and highlight those areas you need to improve. How in the world do you expect to expand and grow if there is no one to provide critical positive criticism?

There is nothing that can be done at this point. You can never revisit the previous year, or for that matter this first month, except in your memories. You can determine that every resolution you made, you will accomplish. It’s better not to make a vow, especially to yourself, then to make a vow and not keep it. You deserve better than that.

Even if, you have already fallen off the resolution bandwagon, just get back on. You still have 11 months to finish strong.

Have you gotten off the resolution bandwagon already? Do you plan to give up, or get back on? Are you determined to finish strong? What will do to finish strong?

The Dream Never Dies | Showers’ Blessing Inspires | Jacqui Showers

Dreams that transcends you, also transcends time. They live beyond you, because they are for the greater good. They have an impact on lives, because they are rooted in serving humanity. Self-centered dreams produce self-centered actions. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a selfless dream that continues to live today.

The third Monday in January we are reminded of how one dream can have a lasting impact on society and transform a world. It’s the day we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Just like Dr. King, you also have a dream and must live it.

A God-given dream moves beyond the limitations of this world. It is not limited by demographic, sociographic or geographic circumstances. Nothing can prevent it from becoming a reality.

Don’t ever stop dreaming. Rooted in your dream is your purpose for being. Each of us have been created with the capacity to fulfill every dream that has been placed inside of us. You cannot allow your dream to remain dormant. Your dream is bigger than you and beyond you. Don’t minimize the importance of your dream to have a major impact on the lives of others.

Your dreams have influence. Each one is waiting for you to make them a reality, so they can influence the world for a greater good. You cannot be selfish with your dreams. Remember they are not exclusive to you. They are vastly bigger than you for the greater good of humanity.

Do you have a dream? What is your dream? Does your dream move beyond you for the betterment of humanity?

Happy New Year! | Showers’ Blessing PicSpire | Jacqui Showers

Enjoy the new year. You’ve earned it. Take the pressure off yourself and release it all to God. Make your #1 resolution not to be anxious for anything, but in prayer and supplication bring every concern and worry to God. If not, every resolution you have written, you will try to do within your own might. That will make for a long laborious year with little fulfillment. Rejoice in knowing that you have cast every care and concern on God and have included Him in every resolution. Believe me, he is capable of handling all that and more. Inhale. Exhale. Now, experience great success throughout this year.

Happy New Year!
