Alicia Keys. I admire the depth and soulfulness of her music, how she channels pain into positive energy. To me, she is an example of vulnerability and not hiding who you truly are. She encourages me to be comfortable in my own skin and to focus on inner beauty.

It is always a challenge to fuse your creative ambitions and goals with some kind of a career.
You don’t have to live a life where you’re responding and reacting to other people’s toxicity.
Your existence is a miracle in and of itself, and what you do with that is your choice. You get to call the shots.
Be your own boss. Be unbossed and unbothered.
Ebony Isis Booth Creative Mornings Honesty
Get good mentors. Get people who can help you in different facets—whatever you’re doing—and listen to what they have to say.
Many times, people are not going to understand the dream that you have. Because they don’t understand your dream, don’t let that stop you from moving forward.
You can’t get away from things going wrong.
I really don’t look at failure as a negative thing anymore because when you fail, you give yourself a chance to learn. You give yourself a chance to reevaluate.
When you know what your purpose is, then you can deal with those ups and downs.
Whatever you do, if you’re going to go all in, you have to have the right mindset to be able to do that.
