I just got back from a presentation on Grand Valley State's campus which featured speaker Keith Boykin. I didn't know too much about this man until they introduced his resume of current jobs with BET, CNBC, and his past working in the White House and a Harvard Law student alongside Barack Obama, etc. What I got out of his speech most was the notion of not worrying about what others think and say. His overall message was to be you, and do you - a message I've adopted from the very beginning of T.WayCustoms. First you must believe in yourself and have in confidence in that. If you don't, then how could you expect others to? Then, as you face decisions and obstacles, you must follow your heart and do what YOU feel is the right thing to do - even if it's not the easiest option or if those close to you disagree with it. Follow your heart and good things will happen...just don't be stupid.
