When I was growing up, the elders in my life reminded me to always stay humble:
Don’t forget where you came from.
Keep the passion and drive that made you successful.
There’s always someone waiting in the wings for you to stumble.
I saw so many people get a taste of success and an ego to match. They just knew they were the bee’s knees and thought nobody could tell them otherwise. Little did they know, the Universe has a way of humbling you. Understanding that is enough of a reminder for me to stay humble.

Struggle is a part of my life and I wouldn’t change that for the world. It forces me to appreciate what I have and work twice as hard for the things I want. I’m forever grateful to my elders, whose wisdom keeps me humble. Stay humble, continue to grind, celebrate your wins, and your losses.
Success awaits you. Make it happen.
