Let’s stress the importance of staying in your own LANE, meaning worrying less about what other people has going on, because the successes or failures of others benefit you. On their accolades they aren’t going to mention you as a contributor just for being a witness to watching them succeed, so learn to focus on you and stay in your own lane. But know when it’s necessary to go into others lane because it takes some switching of lanes to get a head sometimes. Switching lanes is networking and knowing when to ask for help; so someone can let you in their lane. Find the right lanes to switch into because switching over in others lanes don’t always get you ahead but don’t be afraid not too, because a leap of faith is needed when moving forward.
In order to succeed it takes a certain amount of confidence. Let’s think about this, before any great musician, or dancer, or doctor became the best in their field they had to place a certain of amount of confidence in themselves in order to believe they could.
3 Confidence Boosters
Go the extra mile: Take some extra time in the morning when you get dress, where you have to say to yourself before anyone else gets a chance, “You look good!” Don’t always look for validation from others to like your look, when you love it, that love radiates and people can feel your confidence in yourself and they too will love it.
Be prepared: Jennifer Lopez once noted that she is insecure when she isn’t prepared. When you aren’t prepared for your tasks you aren’t at your very best. You feel inferior to the others around you whom are more knowledgeable. You aren’t as confident as you would be if you were prepared and eventually it shows.
Fake it until you make it: You can’t prepare for every single thing or know every single thing you should know. But even if you don’t, show a little confidence in your voice, people will most likely believe you or respect you for not cracking under pressure when you didn’t know something. As the saying goes dazzle them with brilliant or bethel them with BS (Bull sh*t).

Tyler Perry’s Video Highlights: “In order to get there (successful), you cannot stop believing in anyway, no matter what anybody says. You have to know it beyond knowing it… “
“It is a feeling (belief)…When something is for you…there is a feeling that is deep down inside you that will not allow you to let it go. It will keep you going when you can’t even keep yourself going. “
“…Tyler Perry’s studio is a place where even dreams believe.”
“There are so many people who go in so many directions, this week their doing this, next week their doing that, next week their doing this… those kinds of people are all over the place I usually try to get them to focus. Focus on one thing, put all of your energy into watering one area.”

“Focus on one thing. Make it your priority. And stick with it.”
“I don’t want to sit around and hope good things happen. I want to make them happen.” -Drew Barrymore
Too much wishing, not enough moving, don’t be foolish enough to think that anything you want will come to you. Go make it happen. Actress, film director, and producer Drew Barrymore once said, “I don’t want to sit around and hope good things happen. I want to make them happen.” Adopt Barrymore’s attitude towards life. That job isn’t going to come to you; school isn’t going to move around all your needs. YOU have to make things happen for you, or not…
