I’m baaack! I love Oprah and applaud what she is doing with her network. I admire her for being about her business, for making the touch choices, and for her ability to challenge her self to do the things that so many others say can’t be done. With that being said, Oprah recently interviewed comedian Kevin Hart?
My favorite little man. This interview was amazeballs! I was interested in seeing the interview because if you have never watched Kevin Hart, he is such a funny comedian. But, to the point this interview really showed what I think was a Kevin Hart that could teach us all a thing about our lives, business, and this thing we call #TeamNatural.
Deal With the Hand You Have Been Dealt
Many of us in a lot of aspects of our lives tend to want to change the life that we have been given. In the interview, Oprah asked Kevin how he dealt with his height (being short). Kevin responded “his height was what he was dealt” and that he could only work with the hand that he was dealt.
In the natural community I see so many of us who want Traci Ellis Ross hair, Mahogany Curls hair, Monroe Sisters hair, or CharyJay. Kevin’s answer so fits within the natural hair community. When we can accept the hair that we have been given and work with what we have everyone will be so much more happy. Not having concern about what you hair does not look like but rather what you can make your hair look like helps you to find yourself in you natural hair journey.
You Have One Life to Live
No matter what you think about your hair or your job or your life you only have one. In the Kevin Hart interview he told Oprah that another way that he dealt with his height was to realize that you only have one life to live. Kevin said that he would bring up his height to stop others from getting there first, because he had to focus on the bigger things.
When you allow yourself to focus on the small things or let others redirect your focus on unimportant things life will pass you by. You have to keep your focus so that you can experience and live life to the fullest. If you know that your product or brand is something that no one should go without knowing about in life then put a plan in place to let the world know about it. Don’t allow others to keep you from focusing on that goal and you look around at an older age saying what you could have done. In your work/business life when you allow things to block your focus, you can forget how that we aren’t allowed do overs.
Everything Is Within Your Reach
As the interview continued, Kevin talked about his idols and what he wanted to do and what legacy he wants to leave. What Kevin talked about is what he wanted to accomplish. No matter if you want to blog, be a comedian, a talk show host, or natural hair product brand you need to know that nothing is beyond your reach.
There so many others out there that have paved the way for all of us to reach higher heights. They have shown us that no matter where you come from, no matter your circumstance you can reach any goal that you set. Take a look at natural hair brand owners like Lisa Price, Jane Carter, or Felicia Leatherwood. Because of the Oprahs, Tyler Perrys, and the Bill Cosbys we now know that the only ceiling there is is the one we create for ourselves.
If you missed the interview you should watch it. Kevin Hart has so much that he can teach us all. If we remember these three things:
1. Deal with the hand you have been dealt
2. You have one life to live
3. Nothing is beyond your reach
I say all this to say that it seems that Kevin Hart seems to have figured it out. No matter what you strive to achieve only you can be your worst enemy. I have already written down and posted these 3 things on the board above my desk.
Did you see the interview? What did you think?
