Words of Wisdom: “What’s For You Is For You”-Meagan Good

Today’s Words of Wisdom are from actress Meagan Good and it falls in line perfectly with this comparison demon that a lot of us face regularly.

In this clip, Meagan talks about not comparing her journey to other people’s and refusing to get upset when her life doesn’t go as planned.”I’ve just fixed my mind to say, ‘What’s for me is for me and no one can take it from me. And what’s for someone else is for someone else,” she shared.  Continue reading “Words of Wisdom: “What’s For You Is For You”-Meagan Good”

Words of Wisdom: “Sacrifice Is A Prerequisite For Growth”-Inky Johnson

Today’s Words of Wisdom comes from motivational speaker Inky Johnson. He’s really become a favorite of mine in the past year or so!

In this clip from one of his speaking events, Inky talks about how any growth that we want to achieve in our lives is going to take more from us. More sacrifice. More discipline. More drive. More commitment. It’s going to take the sacrifice of the old person that you were.

Words of Wisdom: “Don’t Live Your Life To Make People Happy”-Taraji P. Henson

Someone I follow on Instagram shared this Words of Wisdom video from Taraji P. Henson. I’ve seen it previously, but I need this reminder today.

In this clip from an interview with Essence, Taraji shares that she doesn’t concern herself with attempting to make people happy about who she is and what she does. She remains who she is instead of trying to change up to impress others. “I live my truth. If you don’t see that, then you don’t love me anyway,” she shrugged. “I don’t waste time trying to get you over here on my side.” Continue reading “Words of Wisdom: “Don’t Live Your Life To Make People Happy”-Taraji P. Henson”

Words of Wisdom: “Stop Watching Other People Live Their Dreams”-Trent Shelton

I rock heavy with this Words of Wisdom clip today from Trent Shelton, especially in this phase of my life. I hope that it motivates you all today in a powerful way.

In this clip, Trent talks about how we each have to stop sitting on the sidelines, watching people live their lives and do great things. It’s time for us to get in the game ourselves. As Trent grew (first as a football player and now as a motivational speaker), he realized that he didn’t just want to watch greatness or be around it. He wanted to be great himself. “Stop being a spectator of other people’s lives, and go elevate yours. They human just like you,” he wrote in his caption. Whoo…I felt that.

This is exactly where I’ve been in my life. I love seeing other people win and grow. It’s great motivation. However, I have to actually do the work for myself if I want to continue to see growth and change in my life. The same goes for each of us. So are you sitting on the sidelines right now, or are you getting in the game?
