Maya Angelou was one of the most prolific writers and Civil Rights activists of the 21st century. Even though we lost this powerful woman in May of 2014 her words now now art. And art is immortal. It will live on forever. Art is also like a light. Art illuminates the body and soul. It helps motivate, inspire, and most importantly teach.
What Dr. Maya Angelou has taught us that no matter what is going on in our life as long as we have a goal and positive attitude nothing can take that away. We must inherently know what we want and go after it no matter the opinions of others. Do not let naysayers (no matter how close they are to you) ever distract you from what is right and what is our goal.
This week stay focused on what you really want out of this life. When someone questions your goals and commitments to long term and short term projects really think about your relationship to this person. Does this person really want to see your shine or are they coming from a place of jealousy because they are not achieving the success you are?
Surround yourself with positive people who only want to see you succeed. Surround yourself with people who challenge you to be the best person you can be me. Surround yourself with people who understand your end goal. Surround yourself with genuine people who have nothing to gain from you.
I want to thank everyone for taking the time out of your day to read this post and other post I have written this month. It really means a lot to me! Have an amazing Monday!
