You can’t change the fact that you’re a woman. You can’t change the fact that you’re Black. But you can change how educated you are. Never let your education (or the lack thereof) be the reason you don’t advance. (RA)
Be in tune with what people need from you; not just what you want to give. (RA)
Your “emergency” is not my priority.
Beware of the person that can never enter or exist in a room quietly. As the saying goes, “A wise man speaks because he has something to say, NOT because he has to say something”. That’s an insecurity: quiet doesn’t always mean danger. (RA)
Other people’s opinion of me tells me more about THEM than it does me.
FAITH it until you make it!
If you can’t be who you want to be where you are: pack up, pick up, and go somewhere else. Go wherever you can best serve the world. (RA)
There’s nothing wrong with feeling big and walking tall. The real crime is shrinking and hiding your talents from the world. (RA)
Stop worrying about the “how”. Just expect & accept greatness. (RA)
Starving yourself won’t help the hungry. You serve the world best when you are your best self: full and functional.
Success doesn’t happen over night, but neither does failure. Failure is an accumulation of poor choices over a period of time.
Stop letting life happen to me, and start letting life happen for me…Life will never go according to plan if you don’t have one.
You can find your passion, but you do not get to pick your purpose.
You don’t find happiness; you create it.
Give freely, believing that you will always receive abundantly.
Giving too much credit to the world and too much power to the people will leave you disconnected to your Source.
Don’t be the person that exaggerates what you did or makes excuses for what you didn’t do. Let the truth speak for itself.
You don’t have to be perfect to be a good teacher, you just have to be critical of your many, many mistakes.
It isn’t enough to rid yourself of negative thoughts. Every void must be filled so be intentional about replenishing your mind with positivity. If you empty out the bad but you forget to refill it with good, others will fill it for you and there’s no guarantee what you’ll end up with.
It’s so cliché, but everything really does happen for a reason. So in the midst of chaos ask yourself: if this has to happen right now, what lesson should I be trying to learn? No sense in wasting a perfectly good learning opportunity and ending up only with a bad memory.
Instead of watching others from the sideline thinking, “pssh, I could do that,” just get up and do it! Stop being overly critical of yourself and assuming that you would be a failure if you tried something new. Somewhere, someone is already doing it and reaping the benefits. So you’re right, you could do it, too but only if you’re bold enough to at least try.
The answer is in your question.
The answers are within you and you don’t even have to dig that deep, you just have to dig consistently. (RA)
Even if you don’t have the harvest yet, you certainly have the seed. (RA)
