A wise woman once said…
I think one of the most important lessons I’ve learned is to put your head down and work. Don’t look at other people and compare yourself. Just do the work. Because when the opportunity is there, you have to be ready. Make sure your craft is refined, and you’re constantly working on it.
Tika Sumpter always plays interesting roles (Candice on The Haves and the Have Nots, Reena on Gossip Girl, and currently Michelle Obama in a biopic movie about her and Barack’s life together on the South side of Chicago), and her hard work shows on camera.Over the past couple of days the line “put your head down and work,” has been appearing to me in different situations and scenarios (the universe is trying to tell me something,lol). However it is really great and sound advice, because doing that not only gives people a chance to notice your work ethic, they begin to understand they can rely on you to get the job done. So, no matter what you’re doing refine your craft, make connections, and work like hell, because world shakers can’t take over a mountain they are disconnected from. Happy Hump Day!
