I just want to take the time now to encourage everyone that is in a position to lead other people, despite what platform you have or despite how many people you have to lead. You may not even consider yourself a “leader” or you don’t consider yourself to be looked upon as a role model, however oftentimes we are just placed in those positions. I just want to say to you that what you have is something very special, it's very humbling to be able to have people that look to you for advice look to you for guidance and it’s sometimes a lot of pressure to be able to stay grounded, deal with life and you may feel a little overwhelmed at times, but I just want to talk to you today just to kind of help break down those barriers of feeling inadequate or feel like you have to be perfect so you force yourself into isolation. Understand that no one is perfect so no one is expecting for you to be perfect either. Sometimes we put so much pressure on ourselves that, in our minds, it makes us less than we really, but in reality you are actually more powerful than you give yourself credit for, even in those moments that you feel down, in those moments that you feel mad, sad, used, and abused or feel wrongly accused, you just feel less than who you truly are in those moments. Use those moments to empower yourself so that other people can be inspired by the challenges that you go through. Sometimes when we go through things, we question “why am I going through this”, “why is this happening” - these type of questions often place you in a mindset of a victim. So in order to rid that victim mentality, we have to think like a victor and shift the question to “what can I learn from this situation?”, this situation is not happening TO me, the situation is happening FOR me. There is a reason that this is happening and if you look for those lessons and focus on gaining solutions... the problem becomes minute. Once we put ourselves in a position that allows us to focus on the solution rather than the problem, we’ve set ourselves apart and have become empowered. Whatever it is that you focus on - multiplies. If you want to multiply your solutions, then focus on the lessons, the things that are going to make you better, things that are going to make you wiser, more kind, and just the overall best version of yourself. Surround yourself in environments that are conducive to your success so that you are able to be in a space of overflow so that you can give to others freely without feeling depleted. That is the goal, that is victory, freedom, and success.
