When I tell y’all, I FELT this Words of Wisdom clip from comedian KevOnStage. I just had to share it with you guys.
KevOnStage first shared this video a couple of years ago and reposted it recently. In the clip, he talks about how people can be entitled and feel that they deserve more than they’ve actually worked for. As a comedian, he has put YEARS into his craft and has just recently become popular in the past few years. Yes, sometimes people blow up overnight, but often people who seemingly have risen up out of nowhere have put in major work behind the scenes for a long time to get there. You deserve what you’ve really worked to make happen. It’s not just going to fall in your lap because you’ve been working at it for a short time.
It’s a real sentiment. You deserve nothing that you didn’t put in the work to create. AND, even with your hard work and sacrifices, it doesn’t mean that things will pan out for you right away. I’m a living witness to that. I’ve been writing for YEARS. Literally since college, so it’s been a little over a decade. I’m just now getting new and better opportunities. And I still have a ways to go. It all takes time, persistence, perseverance, and GRIND.
