Greatness Requires Simplicity

So I just watched an Iyanla Vanzant video called Stand In Your Greatness. She made great points about the power of simplicity. As a writer, all I do is complicate sentences. But her idea on speaking in simpler sentences truly resonated with me.

For one, you don’t have to make things bigger than they are. Such is life that we think bigger is better. But as they always say, less is more. I’m slowly learning that it is ok to simply be. Rather than overthink, over contemplate, over complicate etc. it is okay to simply allow things to flow. Let life go in the directions that it needs to.

Three things I will leave with you today is 1. Be great, 2. Don’t hate and 3. Don’t over complicate.
