Happy Wins-Day, my creatures of greatness!
Welcome to day three of our recognition of phenomenal women who have helped inspire us to be great. Today's Daily Word is dedicated to letting your light shine, and this week's recognition would not be complete with out honoring my sister from another mister, Ms. MC Lyte!
Lyte, who is undeniably a Hip-Hop living legend, has been breaking down barriers since the '80s. Her music and sound is unique and her contribution to the history of Hip-Hop is significant. But this recognition comes from a different place.... Whether wildly known or not, MC Lyte is a business women, motivational speaker, and philanthropist who aims to inspire people to never stop dreaming and to create the success they want out of life.
In her own words, Lyte recently said in an interview, "The first thing
you have to realize, is that there is huge surplus of abundance out
here, and you create every moment for yourself. I have a friend who is always saying 'My breakthrough is coming soon!' and 'One day I will
have money to do what I need,' and that’s the problem. Her breakthrough will ALWAYS be in the future, because that’s where she
puts it. Because we create every moment for ourselves, what we have to
realize is, this moment we are in right now was created long before it
happened! If you focus on being broke, that’s what you will be. If you
focus on not having enough money, that’s what will show up. If you
focus on being homeless, that’s where you will stay. The constant
repetition of your thoughts will bring that very thing to you."....
I couldn't have said it better!! Profound words from a phenomenal woman!! Her willingness to share her gift with others and encourage them to shine their own light is one of her biggest secrets for her longevity and success... So today, as we honor Ms. Lyte, I urge you to shine your own! Always have faith in your abilities and understand that everything your want out of life is already yours... All you have to do is have courage enough to claim it!! We Salute you, Ms. Lyte as Rock!! We appreciate all you do!!
