When you STAY ready, you aint got to GET ready
These past few weeks have been life changing for me. I got the opportunity to be on set with some of the most influential people including Al Sharpton, Lenny Kravits,Jasmine Guy and a host of others. Ive gotten 3 opportunities in one week, and in the midst of all the blessings, MoNique, talk show host, made a comment that will forever stick out in my mind. She said, WHEN YOU STAY READY, YOU AINT GOT TO GET READY! The quote was so simple,but to me, it meant so much. Have you ever gotten the opportunity to express your talent, or something unique you posses ed, but you we rent ready? Ive been there numerous times before. I would always pray for a different opportunity to arise, but when the opportunity presented itself,i was never prepared. I was at a speaking engagement in 2008 and heard someone say this, "Its better to be PREPARED and have no OPPORTUNITY, then to have an OPPORTUNITY and never be prepared. I live by this mantra, EVERYDAY. No longer will i pursue my dreams without preparation,and YOU shouldn't either. Besides, if you STAY ready, you will NEVER have to get READY!!! Be blessed and remember "When you remain unprepared, be prepared for NO success"!!!
