#MotivationMonday | The Art of Improvising

Whenever we feel as though none of our ideas are working as planned, we have to learn how to improvise and make any negative situation into a positive one.

In any journey, there will always be ups & downs. We do not always succeed in every endeavor we chose to pursue, but there are always ways to make our failures into successes… and improvising is one of them.

Whenever you are faced with a situation that throws a monkey wrench in your game plan, remember that there are three easy steps you can take to turn any situation into a positive one.

  1. Improvise: Whenever you encounter an obstacle that you did not expect to encounter, the best thing you can do is take a moment to reflect on that situation & figure out how you can overcome such an obstacle. Begin thinking of ways to turn that situation around & be willing to put in the extra work that it will take to get yourself back on track.
  2. Adapt: Once you have figured out what you will do to overcome the unexpected obstacle, the next step for you to take is to adapt to your situation. Do not become flustered or overwhelmed. Realize the extent of the situation you are in & encourage yourself into believing that you can make a positive outcome out of it.
  3. Overcome: After you have made your game plan & have placed yourself into the mindset of overcoming your obstacle, the next step for you to take is to place your plans into action & overcome that situation.  Make the best out of your struggle & strive to turn it into a success. Even if it takes you a little while to overcome your obstacle, stay diligent & do whatever it takes to get make that struggle into a flawless victory.

Now that you know what to do to overcome your obstacles, never be afraid to encounter one & always know that you have what it takes to overcome it. Learn the art of improvising & you will always be able to come out victorious.

With Much Love And No Bull,

#THROWBACKTHURSDAY | Missy Elliott – The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)

This is a classic that I’m sure no one can forget…

Back in 1997, Missy Elliott, one of the greatest female Hip Hop artists to ever enter the game, dropped her debut album entitled “Supa Dupa Fly” that forever changed her career and the game of Hip Hop as well.

“The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” was not only the first video that sparked Missy Elliott’s amazing career, but it was also the leading single from her debut album as well. While the album went platinum, the song managed to peak at number four on the billboard charts and the video was nominated for Best Rap Video at the 1997 VMA awards.

Its incredible to think that this amazing video is Missy Elliott’s first. Not many artists, especially female artists, have been able to constantly provide good music and entertainment like Missy Elliott has done in her career, and that is why she is listed amongst the legends in Hip Hop.

If you haven’t already, check out the video above and tell us what you think of this timeless classic with a comment below.
