The truth about Success:

I love that in this day and age people who have received success tells the truth about how many times they have failed. Many success stories talk about homelessness, displacement, and hunger that inspired them to keep going.

My truth when it comes to success is that I had to develop the audacity to work harder than anyone around me.

I have opened a non- profit and an Early Learning Academy. To do so, I had to stay up when others were sleeping, read, research, go back to school, ask questions, and be willing to be mentored. The road is not easy, but the passion for the work had to exceed my need for comfort. I had to be ok with not being average and standing apart. But most of all I had to acknowledge the God that is inside of me.

The same God that lives in me also lives in you. Choose today to stand apart, work hard, and sacrifice for the passion God placed inside of you!

Selah.
