Believe in Your Greatness

Recently on Twitter, someone shared a video of Jay Z doing a radio interview. Not only am I a fan of him as an artist, but I enjoy listening to him speak about life.  The wisdom that comes from him inspires me. Recently, on Twitter, someone retweeted the following video:

 

In the video, he dropped a gem that I needed to hear.

Always believe you're great even before anybody else believes it. - Jay Z Click To Tweet

I get in my own way.

I overthink things.

I get so wrapped up in planning that I never execute.

I use everyone else’s experiences as my blueprint…and fail.

I don’t tell myself how great I am.

I shouldn’t rely on others to recognize my greatness. As long as you believe in your greatness, that’s all that matters.

I needed this reminder from Hov.

Thank you sir.
