Good, better, best!

I was on the radio yesterday. Well, I was at a radio station, scheduled to speak, but was played along the way because of timing issues. It was still a great experience. We were there promoting the WesGold Fellows Program (my day job) on WURD, a local Philadelphia radio station. The other instructor (who just happens to be my beau that I keep referring to) and one of the students got the chance to broadcast their voices over the airwaves. At first the student was speechless, which was so unlike her. But then she came around and was amazing. It was wonderful to watch.

What was sad though, was the lack of respect and support from her fellow Fellows. Lack of support for one another is seemingly becoming more and more prominent among the young and old, but especially among the African American community. I was so proud to see this young woman speaking eloquently and just having the courage to do something out of the ordinary, or something she may have never had a chance to do. There’s plenty of room at the top, people. Instead of wasting the energy to tear someone apart, support them. Bring them up as you do yourself.

I learned a nice motivating quote from the station General Manager, Mr Curnie Anderson: “Good, better, best. Never let it rest until your good is better and your better is best! Food for thought.

Have a great weekend all! See ya on Monday
