Ava Ralph | Serial Entrepreneur

Focused. On. Purpose. is the essence of The Lady Ava Marie Brand! I created this personal motto in my college years where I learned I can do anything, or be anything but I had to no clue where to begin. After observing the people in my life, I found that the best option for me was to be exactly who God called me to be! I realized I was designed for a specific purpose while on this earth and that is where my best life is. When my mindset shifted to purpose, the search for myself became clear and aligned.

Isaac Newton once stated, “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.” I find this quote both humbling and inspiring for the fact that it pays homage to those who have put in the work and sacrifices before us to allow us the opportunities to do what we can do today, all while challenging us to do the same for those that come after us. This human experience we share is a byproduct of our collective experiences and work. Everyone’s contribution was necessary to get us to this point and will continue to be needed as we strive further. Personally, this quote serves a constant reminder that what I do and hope to accomplish is bigger than just myself. Especially, at times we are so focused on the tasks at hand we can fall susceptible to losing track of the greater, overarching picture. Read more>>

Especially when you are chasing a dream, we often forget to enjoy the process and are always looking ahead and this quote has really helped me to stop and show gratitude, reflecting on how far I’ve come and the fact that the life I currently have was something I was praying so hard for prior. It really makes you appreciate where you are in life. Read more>>

My favorite quote and affirmation is “I think, therefore I am” by Rene Descartes. This is such a powerful statement because of the truth in it. Everything begins in the mind. The mind is the body’s powerhouse. As cliche as it may sound, you can really accomplish anything if you put your mind to it. It begins with the mind as a thought and then your body follows. That’s why it’s so important to keep yourself clear of negative stimuli; because once you think it, you become it. Read more>>
