#WNJInspired | What I Learned from Master Class on Own, ft. Lionel Richie

Most Sunday evenings you can catch me watching Master Class on Own. I’ve been a fan of autobiographical and biographical content, filmed on written, singe I was a kid. I remember being fascinated with the story of Princess Diana and reading and watching every little thing that had to do with her reign as Princess all the way until her untimely death. I believe that’s where my interest in “celebrity lifestyles” began.

We can learn life lessons from anyone.

This past Sunday, singer Lionel Richie on Master Class sharing bits and pieces of his life story. Certain pieces of  his story struck a cord with me. As he recalled his highs and lows in the music business, and in life in general, these 3 things stayed with me:

1. When you feel like you’re loosing momentum keep going forward.

2. Accept who you are and be OK with knowing what you want – like yourself.

3. Success can be lethal, if you don’t know how to handle it.

I’m a firm believer that we can learn life lessons from anyone. Some may think celebrities can’t teach us anything or think they have it easy, therefore they can’t possibly know about “regular life”. Celebrity is just a title. At the end of the day, they put their pants on and go through life’s challenges just like we do. Which is why I’m such a fan of this show.

I’ve learned new lessons, been reminded of past life lessons and been intrigued by so many of the episodes. Aside from Lionel Richie, some of my favorite Master Class lessons have come from Whoopi, Robin Roberts, Cindy Crawford and Goldie Hawn.

So tell me, have you ever watched Master Class on Own? If so, who’s been your favorite? Also, what’s one life lessons you’ve learned along the way? Let me know! 

As always, thanks for reading, commenting and sending feedback. You all continue to keep me inspired. 🙂 I hope you all enjoy the day and I’ll be back tomorrow. Until then, be blessed and stay safe…xo!

You never know what vehicle God’s going to use to deliver his message to you. I’m always on the lookout. Thanks for sharing.
