Words of Wisdom: “Lose The Boundaries” – Idris Elba

Idris Elba opens up about the importance of breaking through boundaries to achieve your goals!

Words of wisdom today from the great Idris Elba! Besides his being devilishly handsome, Idris is actually very wise, and I appreciate him dropping this specific gem. In this video from Goalcast, the actor opens up about shooting your shot in life, and being courageous and bold enough to go after what you desire!

Too often, I know I put restrictions on myself unconsciously. I don’t go for different opportunities because I don’t feel “good enough” or “qualified enough.” I seriously sometimes wonder how many things I missed out because of that. But this year, I’ve decided to erase that negative thinking for life!

If you want something, you’ve got to at least try. You may not get it, but if you don’t at least attempt, you’ll never know. Like Idris says in this video, “lose the boundaries, lose the conformity, and go for it!”

Words of Wisdom: “All It Takes Is One Yes” -Lea Michele (VIDEO)

“Most of the greatest success I’ve had came from a door closing. That led me to something incredible.”

                                                              –Lea Michele

Lea Michele, best known for her stint on hit musical TV show Glee, had some very wise words that I definitely took to heart today!

In chatting with Cosmopolitan, the singer and actress admitted that if she hadn’t gotten rejected from her dream role in a Broadway production of West Side Story. She was absolutely heartbroken, but that door closing in her face led to her getting a starring role on Glee just a few weeks later, which went on for six seasons. After experiencing rejection after rejection in auditions, she made it! “All it takes is one yes,” Lea said. And I really believe that it’s the universe preparing you for the thing that is going to be the best thing for you in your life.”

I’m actually writing a deeper post about this, but isn’t this a lot of our own stories? We get so frustrated and doubtful after hearing no (or sometimes no response at all!) SO many times, whether it’s for jobs, loans, or, for writers like me, story pitches. It really makes you question whether or not your dream is ever going to come true. This right here was definitely something I needed to hear today! I hope it pushes y’all too to keep going after what’s meant for you.
