Daily Word: Happy Birthday Aaliyah (You Are One In A Million!!)

Happy Martin Luther King Day, my Great People!!

If you missed our special Birthday Tribute to Dr. King, please click here. Today, we are celebrating the birthday of one of our other fallen family members. Aaliyah Dana Haughton, born January 16, 1979, was a talented songwriter, performer, actress, who lost her life tragically on August 25, 2001, in a plane crash.

Even though Aaliyah is gone, she will never be forgotten. Her accomplishments at such an early age were astonishing, and she gave us inspiration. She told us that "if at first we don't succeed, we must pick ourselves up and try again," as well as how much we were "one in a million." In commemoration of her birthday, we are dedicating today's Daily Word to being One in A Million!

In life, you will be confronted with many situations where you don't totally fit in. You will look around and feel like the odd one out. You will question yourself and wonder what is it about you that you don't have that everyone else does.... That's wrong!!! The question you should be asking yourself is what is it about you that everyone else doesn't have!!

Always remember that you are one in a million! No one on this planet can be you or do what you can do! You were put on this earth to do some extraordinary things, and as long as you keep trying to be like everyone else, you will never accomplish them! You were born to stand out!!! With that in mind, accept that fact that you will never fit it!! You were put here to be the best you that you can possibly be, so never question or take that privilege for granted!! You are One in A Million!!! Stop waiting, and Make your life Great!!!
