|A tense moment for me on "24 Hour Catwalk"|
Early this morning on facebook, one of my supporters who happens to be a curvy girl, make up artist, and fellow entrepreneuer, posted something that made me stop and take pause. She wrote, "I love being overlooked. It makes me work harder." I thought to myself, "Kelly Brown, you must be crazy!!" After many years, 15 to be exact, of toiling in virtual obscurity, I am tired of being overlooked. Truth be told, I'm tired of working harder. I want my gifts and talents recognized by somebody who is in a position of affluence and influence so that my load can be lessened. I want financial success to stop being so darn elusive. So, of course, I had to comment. After carefully weighing my words, I typed, "I intensely dislike being overlooked. Ignored. Sends a message that I have little or no value." I thought that would be the end of it. I thought I could get on with the rest of my day basking in my glum. Boy was I wrong! Kelly B quickly responded, "Wilbur Pack, Jr. it has the opposite effect on me. I don't take it as me having little or no value, I take it as someone not having the clarity to see the great value I know I have! take it in stride and go harder - it usually ends up in those who overlooked you regretting that they did!"
The universe has a way of sending just the right message at just the right time. Kelly Brown delivered that message because I needed it. Although I continue to move forward, there are moments when I falter and I just want to feel sorry for myself. Yet, I know it is an emotion that is too heavy to bear on this path. If I am going to reach my pinnacle, I cannot let these kinds of feelings weigh me down. Now, I am refocused and re-energized. Look out world because I am coming through. And all of you who dare to dismiss me, you may want to give it a second thought! My name is VICTORY. If you want to check out my girl Kelly Brown, check her out at MASQUEmag.
