Tell and Tell Secrets:
Sheléa highlights the fact that, if anything, the Covid-19 pandemic has taught her that she can do more with less and still be impactful. While it may be quite true that you lack certain resources that could accelerate your success, you have the power to choose your thoughts, swapping out negative, “victim-like” ones that don’t serve a great purpose for positive, helpful ones that do. So if you’re thinking or speaking some version of “I can’t do it because…”, note it, but then ask: “What can I do to control my situation?” That has served Sheléa well and it’s something that she’s carrying with her into the future. Will you?
Words of advice:
You either have to evolve, adapt, or die. You need grace for when you don’t always hit the mark. Hold on and stay strong.
