Why I Write by Author Denise N. Fyffe

I watched a video by renowned author J.K. Rowling, and I believe that she gets what many authors, like myself, are going through.

She was speaking the Harvard University Commencement and her speech was about failure and I could tell that she lived exactly what I am now going through.

To have that similarity and to hear my thoughts from someone else is a great motivator. As such, it inspired me to share 30 posts about the 30 books, which I have published.

Then I began thinking, searching …

Over the last month, I have come to the full realization and acceptance that I am different. I cannot sit idly by, because I have been given a gift; and I won’t waste it. Every bit of information, research – everything – God has put in this head will benefit someone else.

I am going to write about it.

When I reached 25 books, my next goal was 30. But, I conquered 30 books so easily, my next target was 100 books by 2018. However, I took a one-year sabbatical. That one year turned into three. I needed to recalibrate and analyze my motives, my messages, my purpose.

So, calibration is in session.

I want to encourage someone else, to never settle for mediocrity. And remember, only you know what that level is. If you are given a gift to aim HIGH and THINK BIG, then do so.

There are many things that I can do – many abilities, talents, skills, and interests. I get bored easily; therefore, it is not in my genes to settle for just writing one book a year or writing for writing sake. Neither should you – as a writer – settle for this idle.

I encourage you, stop, think and reassess your life. It might be what you need to level you up for greatness.

I just watched a video by famously renowned author JK Rowling, and I believe that she gets what many authors like myself are going through.

Her speech was about failure and I could tell that she lived exactly what I am now going through. To have that  similarity is a great motivator. As such, it has inspired me to share 30 posts about the 30 books, which I have published.

I say published, because I have written nearly twice as many, and they are sitting on my hard drive gathering virtual dust.

Over the last month, I have come to the full realisation that I am different. I am called to a higher place than others. I cannot sit idly by and watch my life go by, because I have been given a gift; and I wont waste it.

Revealing the Christian Life Ministry

Denise says, “I wrote this book, after suffering from depression. I wanted to tell some of the stories, which many of us overlook, including my own. I wanted to paint a clear picture of the realities that many face in this world. Thankfully, writing aids the healing process. It provides an escape.

Book Feature on Declarations for My Sons and Daughters by Denise N. Fyffe

The bible says that “death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits”. Therefore, as guardians of our bloodline, we must take the reins and strategically place the power, authority, presence and dictates of God, over the lives of our children; even to the 12th generation.

Declarations for my Sons & Daughters

I started writing this free ebook, Declarations for my Sons & Daughters, after contemplating the life that I wanted for my children. In a world such as this, we cannot leave anything to chance. I want my children to come into an intimate relationship with God and not have to struggle for it. All else are their rightful inheritance.

Many of us, especially of African descent, have been robbed of our earthly inheritance. We have all been robbed of our spiritual inheritance. But, it is not God’s will for us to remain in that state. I invite you to frequently declare these statements over the lives of your children, born and yet to be born.

I found that the declarations were divinely inspired. I attempted to write declarations before, but these came directly from the Holy Spirit. As such, I want to…

Book Excerpt from Empowering the 21st Century Worker by Denise N. Fyffe

An employer’s obligation to their workers does not start and stop at providing them with employment. More is required for them to contribute consistently and positively to the company; also for them to increase that level of productivity for their entire tenure at the organization. Business owners might think that if they employ certain empowerment practices, like encouraging open communication, setting up a system of rewards, defining roles clearly, or insisting on accountability; that these strategies alone will ensure employee empowerment. No, they will not.

Book Excerpt from Is the Registry Happy by Denise N. Fyffe

On the job training

Whether workers have been in the job market for many years or just a day, employers must anticipate training new employees in the company. This can be in specific job functions or organizational practices and culture, which is the accustomed behavioural customs, principles and expectations of their workplace. Oftentimes it is also required that they frequently offer guidance in job-specific technical skills as well. As the job function evolves, so too must the skills of the employee to perform that job effectively.

Worker’s skills are the key component in the success of an organization or business; therefore, it is paramount that they have the best employees possible. Organizations exploit all of their workforce expertise to…

Book Excerpt from The Expert Teacher’s Guide on How to Motivate Students by Denise N. Fyffe

Teaching is one of the oldest professions in the world and many aspire to this profession; as is the case in any other career, many of us aim to be the best and most proficient. Many of us strive to improve on what existed before. This is a natural intrinsic desire as we are creatures that like to compete; but being the best is not an entitlement.

Some teach for teaching sake, and this is one of the reasons that the noble profession of teaching is being stigmatized by unconstructive connotations. It is not impossible to erode the failures of the past and lay a new legacy in teaching; it is certainly possible if as individuals we take on the responsibility of upgrading our skills, learning new strategies and working diligently to motivate all learners to participate fully in the learning process.

Book Feature on The Island Journal by Denise N. Fyffe

Jamaicans consider themselves spiritually blessed as they have the most churches per square mile. Jamaica also has the most talented people in music, arts and athletics and are creative, have a love for life, blessed with a beautiful and luscious island paradise. There are high pristine Blue Mountains, the un-spoilt Cockpit Country, good vibes and jamming music floating everywhere you go.

The everyday man misses the unique gifts which are upon him daily. Where else does almost every home have a fruit tree in the backyard; usually there are several of them. Jamaica has tens of thousands of towering mango trees, ackee trees, breadfruit, or our national flower lignum vitae trees. The countryside is lined with succulent cherry, plums, apple and so many delicious morsels from God’s garden.

All around you will see children playing and laughing, up to some Anancy mischief; but they are happy. Hunger is mostly kept at bay because there are trees bearing food everywhere and most neighbours are willing to allow you to pick from their trees. Mango, banana, ackee, pear, sweet sop, soursop, apple, papaya, june plum, hog plum, orange, grapefruit, cherry and much more.

Jamaica is a paradise indeed.
