“to the young women, our future leaders, know that you’re about to make the world turn. I see you. You are everything the world needs. make those power moves. be excellent. and to the young kings, lean into your vulnerability and redefine masculinity. lead with heart. there’s so many different ways to be brilliant. I believe you and every human being is born with a masterful gift. don’t let the world make you feel that you have to look a certain way to be brilliant. and no you don’t have to speak a certain way to be brilliant. but you do have to spread your gift around the planet in a way that is authentically you. to all those who feel different. If you’re part of a group that’s called ‘other,’ a group that does not get the chance to be center stage, build your own stage and make them see you. your queerness is beautiful, your blackness is beautiful. your compassion, your understanding, your fight for people who may be different from you, is beautiful. I hope you continue to go into the world and show them that you will never stop being yourself. that it’s your time now, make them see you. whatever you do, do not negativity of people projecting their own self doubts on you , to tear you from your focus. i know those moments are painful, and you’re human and it hurts like hell… but now’s the time to turn those criticism into fuel and motivation to become a beautiful beast.
respect is everything. there’s no successful relationship without respect. nor a successful movement if the basic principal is not respect. the world will respect you as much as you respect yourself. what is the secret to success? PUT IN THAT WORK! there might be more failures than success but please, do not feel entitle to win, just keep working harder. surrender. losing can be the best motivator to get you even bigger wings. so never compare yourself to anyone else.there will be wins and losses, there will be tears and laughter, you’ll feel the shades of life deeply. now, with success comes challenges. whenever you feel like you’re not in control, or the world is against you, let that vulnerability motivate you into greatness and find your true self. remain a work in progress: that’s the beauty of growth.
you’ll be happiest when you’ll let go and allow life to show you the next move.
when you bet on yourself, you’re making an investment into your own future. when you choose to spend your valuable time thinking, speaking, typing negative thoughts, you’re investing in something that will give you no return in your investment.
every thought in your mind is powerful, every word you speak is powerful, every action you take has consequences for yourself and your community.
i urge you to let this moment push you in all areas of your life. wherever you can find hope: follow it. and remember, you are never alone.
stay focused: don’t talk about what you are gonna do, don’t just dream about what you’re gonna do, don’t criticize somebody else for what they are not doing. YOU BE IT! be about that action and go do it! keep your eye on your intention. don’t let any outside distraction or your own insecurity stop you from your goals.
embrace that struggle. surviving that struggle will strengthen you.
keep pushing. forget the fear, forget the doubt, and keep investing and keep betting on yourself. and congratulations!“
