Everybody is in awe of Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as she is a real-life example of a superwoman. She has already proved we should listen to her by speaking the truth in songs like “Run the World (Girls)” and “Pretty Hurts”, but the star also gives quite fantastic career advice too. These are the most important ideas you should always remember about.
Having an Example Is Important<
A talented singer and dancer, a style and beauty icon, a businesswoman and a mother – Queen B can do it all. But according to her, her success is the result of looking up to others: “Imagine if someone hadn’t given a chance to the brilliant women who came before me: Josephine Baker, Nina Simone, Eartha Kitt, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, and the list goes on. They opened the doors for me, and I pray that I’m doing all I can to open doors for the next generation of talents.”
Experience is Valuable
We all know that it’s nearly impossible to reach the top without falling a few times along the way. Beyoncé highlights how valuable gaining precious experience is. “I have had disappointments in business partnerships as well as personal ones, and they all left me feeling neglected, lost, and vulnerable. Through it all I have learned to laugh and cry and grow,” she said.
Hard Work Pays Off
It’s good to work smart, but hard work will show how determined you are, no matter what. The star is undoubtedly an example of that, and The New York Times wrote about her Coachella performance: “Some superstars prize effortlessness, but Beyoncé shows her work — the cameras captured the force and determination in her dancing, and also her sweat…. Occasionally her set was punctuated with fireworks that, compared with what was happening onstage, seemed dull.”
Your Success Depends on You
One of the best-selling music artists of all time lives by the quote, “Power is not given to you. You have to take it.” This is absolutely true, as no one is going to bring. No one is going to bring you success on a platter, so be ready to fight for what you want. Besides, achieving everything on your own is so rewarding, you will be glad you did it, even if you struggled along the way.
