IF SIZE REALLY MATTERED, THE ELEPHANT WOULD BE KING OF THE JUNGLE

IF SIZE REALLY MATTERED, THE ELEPHANT WOULD BE KING OF THE JUNGLE

At 5' 2" I wouldn't categorize myself mighty in size, but mighty in strength, I am.

I'm fierce and fueled; unstoppable, if you will. I never allow myself the disability of feeling weak, even if I stand a mere five-two.   

I am a woman who believes.

I believe in myself. I believe in my skills; my talents. I believe in self-empowerment. I believe in learning and self-teaching. I believe in the power that all things are possible with those who believe, who try, who work, who give.

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO BE POWERFUL AND SUCCESSFUL, PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD; EDUCATE YOURSELF.

It's not the size that holds you back, it's lack of knowledge. Proverbs 18:15 tells us "An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge."

If you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room. Focus on getting better, not bitter. Stay away from uninspired, ungrateful, unexcited people. Everyone you fight is not your enemy. Everyone that helps you is not your friend. A mistake repeated more than once is a choice. Knowledge gives you power; character gains respect. Suit up, dress up, your personality isn't the first thing people see. Your battle isn't about being ready, it's convincing your mind that you are. Learn how to be comfortable, being uncomfortable. Stop telling people more than they need to know. Age doesn't define maturity. Grades don't define intellect. Rumors don't define you. Believe in yourself, even if people think you're crazy. A boastful mouth gets you nothing but a quiet mind reaps its rewards. A lion doesn't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep. Don't take everything personal, it's not always about you. Raise your standards and people will meet you there.

...and through it all, give the glory to God. —Psalm 69:30
