why we do What We Do
A faith-based, 501(c)(3), non-profit, outreach organization providing leadership, spiritual education, mentorship, accountability, vocational resources and life skills training for the "inner city" of Nashville, TN.
To create a path to break negative cycles that keep kids, individuals and families in the "inner city" community from radically improving their lives.
How To Break the Cycle
Don't participate in dysfunctional or unhealthy behaviour. Often, such behaviour is commonplace in one's family and the person breaking cycles does so to keep from continuing through future generations. Below are steps anyone right now can take to Break Cycles in your life.
Step 1. Identify the problem as a problem
Don't push anything under the rug. If it bothers you, seek God and pray about it.
Step 2. Take Responsibility for the problem
Don't blame another person for your situation.
Step 3. Resolve to change one thing at a time
I suggest picking the smallest thing as it will likely be the easiest to change.
Step 4. Get help
Get professional help if needed, but definitely seek help from God.
Step 5. Remove everyone caught up in your cycle
Yes, I just suggested that perhaps you need to stay away from your pessimistic family members or your gossipy friends for a while. You are not abandoning them. Remember, you will never be able to help others until you help yourself.
Step 6. Fill your mind with positive things
There is one way to do this. Give your life to God.
