Wednesday, February 8, 2018, I attended my first Paparazzi Regional event called EmpowerMe Pink in Phildelphia, PA. There was a lot going on in Philly that day: there was a MASSIVE parade for the Eagles who won Super Bowl LII. People were everywhere. The city shut down 5 miles of streets and people were required to take public transportation just to get into the city. There were no cars, trucks or SUVs on the street of Phildelphia that day! Just hundreds of thousands of people celebrating a long awaited victory for a team that they never gave up on.
The Eagles were not the only champions in town that day. Thousands of Paparazzi Independent Consultants traveled to Philly by car, bus, train and plane to hear from the champions, like Trent Kirby, Chani and Ryan Reeves,who started our company and share with each other stories of success and hope! For me, it was AMAZING. I was reminded of the power of hope, the importance of consistency and the hard work of discipline. Most of all, the meeting confirmed my goals, my heart’s desire, is waiting for me to attain it. Nothing and no one is holding me back but me. That stops now!
Everything I am, all that I have, all that I’ve accomplished, all that my children accomplish is by the Grace of God. I was reminded of a commencement address that Denzel Washington gave at an HBCU recently. I went back and listened to it this morning (following one of the tips that Trent taught us to start each day listening to motivational videos). Now I’m sharing it with you.
Be blessed and make today GREAT!!
