The results are in! Congratulations to our new President-elect Joe Biden. More importantly, congratulations to our new Vice President-elect Kamala Harris who has made history. She is truly an inspiration as she has become America’s first female and black Vice President. Wow! Talk about black girl magic. Vice President Harris has really shattered the glass ceiling and is the epitome of unlimited success.
Vice President Harris set out to break barriers and limits. Never before has a woman, and not just a woman but a black women, been elected as Vice President. However, she did not allow that to stop her from accepting President-elect Biden’s offer to be his running mate. Instead, she worked hard and put her best foot forward to shatter all limitations. Her success shows us the importance of hard work and a daring mindset. We must learn to never minimize our abilities and to go against all odds. We must never be afraid to try even if we fail. President-elect Biden reminds us that he ran for presidency three times and failed. Because of his perseverance, in January he will become the 46th president of the United States. We never know what we are capable of until we try and never give up. Always believe in yourself and your abilities. Then, take on the challenge even when you are unsure of the outcome. Remember, it is better to try and fail then to never try at all. Push pass perceived limits because you could be the one to make the difference.
During the address, Vice President Kamala Harris decided to step out on stage to a song entitled “Work That” by Mary J. Blige. This was very inspirational because the song reminds us to “work what we got”. The lyrics encourages us to be ourselves and follow our dreams regardless of what others say. Things may get tough along the way, but keep pushing and believe in your ability to overcome. The message in this song is extremely inspirational.
This week, I challenge you to look at any challenges that you are trying to overcome or any goals that you are trying to achieve. Then, I encourage you to strategize and go after them in full force. You never know what you are capable of until you launch out to achieve it. I know Vice President Kamala Harris never thought that she would be the first female Vice President of the United States. Her hard work and dedication led her on this path and brought her to VICTORY! We never know where our paths will lead us; just continue to work hard and stay the course. Someday, you could make history! Continue to be inspired and evolve!
