Have you ever felt like you were being underestimated?

“Lurking in the back of my mind at all times was a sense that I was always being underestimated. I knew within myself what I wanted to try to be. And I felt that there were others that just sort of assumed that I could never achieve anything but what they expected me to be. And I wasn’t going to let those limitations be my limitations.” -Judge Nathaniel R. Jones

When I read that quote, I felt like Judge Jones was reading straight from my diary. I want this video to be a call to arms.

  • You should not be underestimated.
  • Don’t let people assume things about you that aren’t true.
  • Don’t live to other people’s expectations, live to your own.

Save this video for the day you need a pep talk. Remember:

You are strong.

You deserve to be appreciated and cared for.

You are worthy.
