I was just reading SHAPE magazine and I love the advice Naomi is sharing in it. She gives her “best beauty secrets” which really are great advice for everyone! There are some that are not so secret to the world like “find your passion” or “eat clean”, but the second one : BREAK DOWN BARRIERS really intrigued me.
She talks about the starting off in the fashion world as one of the first few black models. Of course it was a world she had to break into, in order to be successful. So her lesson learned from that time:
“I learned if you don’t accept no for an answer, you often get a yes…. Every cover I got, I fought for. No’s don’t deter me- they make me more determined”
is what every person should understand and do, every day! Fight for what you know you should have: the freedom for everyone, the promotion or the job you want, the human and animal rights, the vacation days you need to spend with your family, the perfect health you know you deserve!
I would definitely listen to this girl- hard to believe almost 44-year old woman with that face and body- as she clearly has succeeded in her professional life and from what I’ve read from her interview in the magazine, her inner, personal life as well.

This morning I started reading John C. Maxwell’s Beyond Talent and instantly I felt the urge to share an idea from the first chapter. Here it is:
“The first and greatest obstacle to success for most people is their belief in themselves…It’s lack of trust in themselves, which is self-imposed limitation. However, when people believe in themselves, they unleash power in themselves and resources around them that almost immediately take them to higher level. Your potential is a picture of what you can become. “
It’s amazing what people can do when they believe in themselves and their abilities. So today, I urge you: Believe in what you can do: because you can do amazing things!
