Vision: It's Time for a New Prescription

Vision: It's Time for a New Prescription

As I prepare to move into my new home I have been creating virtual vision boards through Pinterest and to plan the design for a space that will be conducive to my creativity. I believe that our physical environment has a direct effect not only on our creativity but also on our mood and productivity. Many people agree with this belief but everyone has a very different perception of what this looks like.

As a part of my design process when I moved into the loft that I lived in years ago, I treated myself to my first, very own, top of the line bed complete with 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. This may seem like no big deal to you, but for me it was a major milestone. This was my first time purchasing my very own bed that was not a hand me down or tied to some other complicated situation. What does that say about me? For years, I put many of my basic needs on the back burner while trying to cater to the needs of others and ultimately save the world. Well, even super heroes need somewhere comfortable to lay their head at night. The mini moral of the story here is that we won’t be of much good to anyone else, if we are not first good to ourselves.

The movers came and one of them felt compelled to tell me, before he even saw the inside of my loft, that he didn't think that it would be a good place for me to live. He based it upon several reasons, one being that I lived across from a Salvation Army residential rehabilitation facility. He went on to support his point by saying that when he walks out of his door, he wants to see something beautiful. He said that when I walked out of my door I would see killers and criminals.

I defended my space by saying, well what about the view of the river? He said, “Oh, that’s not a real view, that building is in the way, and there’s an abandoned lot...”

The funny thing is, no matter how much supporting evidence he provided to support his claim, never once did he change my lens or my frame.

If things aren't looking so good in your life, perhaps it's time to change the lens through which you view them. If that doesn't work, then change the frame. The lens is your vision or perception. The frame is your mindset. Your situation can improve as quickly as you can change your mind and your outlook.

Here is how I viewed my situation. First of all I live in Detroit. A city that I admire for its resilience. A city that I love. A city that I won’t give up on just for the simple fact that so many others already have or want to. Second of all, my vision reaches so high and so far that I saw beyond the busy street, beyond the vacant lots, straight to the river that was framed by the sky. I looked at all of this as a beautiful glimpse of God’s great creation. Only one piece in His vast collection of living art work. And finally, I didn't look at the men that resided at the Salvation Army across the street as criminals or killers. I looked at them as men with enough courage to take the first step to seek help. Men who are starting the beginning of the rest of their lives. Men who didn't give up. Men who are on the cusp of a breakthrough who will go on to share their testimony to touch the lives of countless others in need.

Perhaps I view the world through rose colored glasses, but my outlook is what motivates me to inspire and encourage others. My positive mindset is what has freed me from the trappings of the mental health issues that plague our community, especially in economic times such as this.

So my friends, perhaps it’s time for a new prescription. New lenses, new frames and thus a beautiful start to a new life free from so much heartache and pain

Mark Wahlberg x Michael K. Williams star in "The Gambler" (Movie Trailer)
Screenshot 2014-10-28 00.44.23
Screenshot 2014-10-28 00.44.25

A wise man's life is based around "f**k you"...

Movie year 2015 is shaping up to be a good one. Now that Michael "Chalky" Williams is freed up (yes, go back and watch the finale season of 'Boardwalk Empire' wowww)... he can headline this movie with Mark Wahlberg and a worthy assist from John Goodman (whose character laid out that wisdom above to Wahlberg's character).

Jim Bennett (Academy Award®-nominee Mark Wahlberg) is a risk taker. Both an English professor and a high-stakes gambler, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael Kenneth Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, Bennett pits his creditor against the operator of a gambling ring (Alvin Ing) and leaves his dysfunctional relationship with his wealthy mother (Academy Award®-winner Jessica Lange) in his wake. He plays both sides, immersing himself in an illicit, underground world while garnering the attention of Frank (John Goodman), a loan shark with a paternal interest in Bennett's future. As his relationship with a student (Brie Larson) deepens, Bennett must take the ultimate risk for a second chance...

Monday Morning Motivation - The Power of Intention

At the beginning of 2014 I created a vision board. I had typical things on that board like a house and a car. I already had a house and a car when I made it, but I just wanted a better house and a better car. Little did I know, I would lose my car and my house would go into foreclosure months later. The first lesson that this experience taught me was to be grateful for what I already have. The second lesson came with the prayer and work that I put behind getting what had ended up becoming what I needed instead of just what I wanted.

I normally pray every day, but it's sort of generic and starts with the same intro that I made up as a child when I was dealing with teasing at school. When everything seemed to be spiraling out of control in my life, I decided to not only get more detailed and specific in my prayers, but also to focus on what seemed to be the few things that I did have control, fitness and fun.

So I began all of these little journeys...There was 31 days of focus in July, The Summer Love Tour in August, and 90 Days of Focus in September...

The 31 days of focus in July was probably the most powerful, because I wrote out everything that I needed to happen in my personal and professional life, then I went to the water (Belle Isle Park in Detroit) and prayed and cried and walked for 6 to 10 miles every day for 31 days straight. That month, I ended up walking over 150 miles.

Each day, more and more things were revealed to me. Almost miraculously, each and every thing that I prayed for which ranged from a car, to selling or saving each of the homes that I owned began to become a reality.

Recently I shared all of this good news with a friend and he asked, "What do you attribute this to?"

I said, "Intention. I have literally been writing out and praying for what I want, especially during my time of walking all of those miles by the water."

He said, "Very powerful! Water is an amplifier of manifestation and words."

So needless to say, when I put intention and action behind some very major things that I needed to make happen in my life, one by one, they have all come to pass.

So now as I prepare to celebrate my 36th birthday on Saturday I can humbly give thanks for getting a new car, saving and buying back the home that I live in that was in foreclosure, selling several of my investment properties that were losing money, saving the homes of other families, and when I return from this business trip that I am on next month, I will be moving into my NEW home.

If things keep going the way that they are and things that I put on my vision board continue to happen, you'll be hearing me talk about finding the love of my life and starting a family soon, as well as having a fabulous wardrobe like Olivia Pope on Scandal. LOL!

This week I encourage you to put some real intention behind your needs, wants, goals and dreams. First write them down, then pray specifically and unceasingly for them...then take them to the water. (Even if that water is in your bath tub.)

Until next Monday morning...

Stay Motivated.

- MM

The Monica Marie Jones Show Podcast

The Monica Marie Jones Show Podcast

I've been living in Louisville, Kentucky for the month on business. This month away from home was perfect timing because I am facing several changes and transitions in my personal and professional life. During my days here I have spent a lot of time alone reflecting on my past and planning for my future. During this season of self-discovery I've come to the realization that I want to direct all of my focus into the launch of my own show, The Monica Marie Jones Show.

Based on my research I've decided to use podcasting as my platform. I fell in love with podcasts over the past year as they have helped me to learn and grow tremendously. It all started when I stumbled upon the School of Greatness podcast with Lewis Howes. I would listen to one or two of his episodes every day while working out. After a while I noticed that they began to change me for the better. Not only were they extremely inspiring, but they were also very educational in areas such as entrepreneurship and fitness.

Between the podcasts and my recent work as a radio personality for Urban Nation Radio, I made the decision that I'd like to use this popular new platform to entertain, educate, encourage and inspire you. So for the past few weeks I have been working diligently. I have been studying, doing research and I have joined The School of Greatness Academy as well as Podcaster's Paradise (With John Lee Dumas, Host of the Entrepreneur on Fire Podcast). I made these investments in me so that I can deliver a high quality product to you.

I spent all day today writing the business plan. My goal is to launch on January 1, 2015. So please allow me to share my initial vision, mission, show description and goals with you, and let me know what you think. This show is for YOU so I want your input and ideas...


The Monica Marie Jones show will lead listeners to a life of health, wealth and rewarding relationships.


The Monica Marie Jones show is a podcast that inspires listeners to take actions that continuously improve their health, wealth and relationships.


The Monica Marie Jones Show will provide entertaining encouragement in the areas of business, fitness, relationships and finance.
