What does success mean to you? How do you define it?
We live in an age where Hollywood and social media are constantly shoving what success looks like down our throats everywhere you look.
Although we all get lost in the sauce at some point in our lives, it is important to not stay there.
I talked with Celebrity Publicist Kita Williams and asked what her life is like after her hit reality show, The T.O. Show.
To my surprise I learned a valuable lesson about what being fulfilled means.
Kita gave birth to what she calls her biggest blessing, Greysun Hardy which is her first child, September 1, 2015. Her journey to fertility didn’t come as easily as it would have for most women.
In fact, her road to fertility has given her more than what she thought she wanted, discovery of who she really is.
“I didn’t know who I was after a while in Hollywood. I had an amazing career, place to live and I was surrounded by what most people think success is. I achieved everything I thought I wanted but somewhere inside I wasn’t fulfilled. “ Kita says.
Kita tells me bringing new life into the world also brought new life to herself.
“It doesn’t matter how much money you have. If you don’t know who you are, then you need to take a step back and reevaluate. Success is all about knowing and understanding yourself.”
I couldn’t agree more! When you understand who you are you no longer operate in someone else’s definition of success you define it yourself.
