“I Wish vs I’m Grinding For"
Some people want the world. Some people wish upon stars. Some people dream every night. Other people go out and get it. What is the difference? You hear the stories of the rich and famous and think maybe that could be you one day and a lot of people wish and dream about it. The Oprahs and Michael Jordans and Tyler Perrys of the world have made millions and even billions, but the sleepless nights and sacrifice goes unseen by most. None of this happened overnight and nothing came quick. Each one of these successful people put in work for years. Oprah grew as a reporter after a troubling childhood. Perry went from living in his car to believing in his craft and ideas. Jordan famously went from being cut from his HS basketball team to being one of the best basketball players this world has ever seen.
I see this difference and know what I want my ultimate goal to be. I want to be a household name who is sought after when it comes to interviewing all types of people across news, entertainment and politics. I want to travel and be knowledgeable on different cultures and communities. But I also am working each and every day to get here. I work hard at my job, I continue to reach out and meet people in my field and I am always ready to take on a new challenge. There is a great difference between I wish and I am grinding for because one leaves it to chance and the other says I'm building until it's my time. I don't wish to be, but I know that I will be Marquise Francis, the best interviewer/journalist for the A-listers to ever do it.
