Naomi Campbell’s advice from Shape Magazine

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.

The power of books!

The power of books!

Read this story, about an actress, Lyne Renee,becoming painter, after reading a book! 

Lyne Reneepicture from IMDB

Quoting Robin Sharma, she said that after years of telling herself that she can’t be an artist, a painter, like her mother, understanding that “telling yourself you can’t do something, impose that limit upon yourself”, she started painting a portrait of her friend, followed by many other paintings. 

That is the power of reading books. Just one paragraph, or sentence of the book can ignite a fire in your mind that will inspire you to take action and achieve more than you ever thought you could!

Read a great book tonight! Just do it! And let me know what greatness happens next 😉
