Ya'll. Ya'll. If that's not the realest thing I done heard all day, well I don't know what is. My goodness! I had to rewind that a couple of times because I felt that one deep. I completely understand what she means.
Some people will take that statement the wrong way and probably think she's saying not to be prepared in life. That's not true. She's not saying to suddenly quit your job, uproot from your current residence, and move to Hollywood without a plan. No. All she's saying is be persistent.
The reason why it totally makes sense not to have a Plan B is because it's almost like a crutch. We want something to "fall back on" so that we can minimize risk, feel comfortable, and make excuses as to why we didn't achieve what we've always wanted. Well, I feel like you should get rid of the security blanket. Mapping out a vision and executing a plan sounds like a winner to me. We know if something isn't working, we can always tweak some of our steps, but if the goal is the same, the goal is the same.
Moral to the story: Don't abandon your dreams just because your Plan A didn't seem to work the first time you tried it.
Become obsessed with your Plan A. If you plan to be a best-selling author of many books, figure out a plan to get there and stick to it. If you plan to be a high-powered attorney, don't get discouraged because you failed a test. Study harder and keep working at it. If you want to be a teacher, a coach, or a fitness expert, the goal remains the same.
Become obsessed with Plan A. Put all your thought, time, and energy into what you plan to accomplish, and like Teaira says, "It has no choice BUT to work."
