You is kind.

You is smart.

You is important.

For those of you who don’t know this scene, it is from “The Help”. It is a really dramatic moment in the (very good) movie where racial tensions have come to a head.

Amidst all the turmoil, the 9 words above really stuck out to me. By teaching these three short lines to that little girl, the nanny in the scene likely had a more profound impact on that girl than anything else.

What we say to ourselves and believe about ourselves is really important.

The soundtrack in our head determines where we think we are capable of going.

Imagine if someone had placed these three simple lines into your head when you were little.

Now imagine if you planted them in there for yourself, today.

What difference might that make in 1 year? 5 years? 10 years?

For those of us who have the chance to influence a young one (or more), what if you started with them today? What if you made that investment?

For all of us, what if you found someone and just said a simple kind word to them?


You is kind.

You is smart.

You is important.

Make it a great day.
