Madam C.J. Walker (Self-Made Millionaire) is considered one of the 20th century’s most successful entrepreneurs.
She built her empire out of nothing. Her parents were former slaves, and she was an orphan at the age of 7. Madam C.J. Walker said, “ I had to make my own living and my own opportunity. But I made it! Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come to you.
Get up and make them. There is no royal path to success. And if there is, I have not found it, for if I have accomplished anything in life, it is because I have been willing to work hard”.
Your opportunities are all around you. Your potential and your abilities are limitless. You should be eager and willing to learn new skills. Strive to live up to your capacity. Dr. Benjamin E. Mays said, “ Whatever you do strive to do it so well that no man living and no man dead, and no man yet to be born can do it any better!”
Always do your best, let your name be known for excellent work. Be willing to work hard, practice excellence and the opportunities will come.
