This Clip About Finding Yourself Through Failure Is The Cure To Your Midweek Slump

Oprah was fired from her first job as a newscaster in Baltimore. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team. In 1993, Beyoncé was a part of a group who competed on Star Search and lost. One thing all of these icons have in common is that they were able to see the beauty in failing forward.


Anybody who's ever had a vision or a dream knows that the struggle hits a little different when you're passionate. Getting out of bed some days is rough, and I've hit rock bottom more than a few times. After overcoming a prescription pill addiction in college and wasting years of my life in a fruitless, toxic relationship, sometimes I wonder if I failed one time too many; and then suddenly, almost like magic, I remember who I am and persist in my hustle.

Life after trauma often triggers a spiritual rebirth that can elevate you to your highest potential. You will never be who you were before you failed, and according to the latest episode of CLEO SPEAKS LIVE, that's a good thing, sis.

Here's What To Watch On Tubi

Tubi has been gaining popularity due to its free sign-up and a vast selection of series and films. According to Deadline, the FAST (free ad-streaming television) service has seen a 14.7% growth from May and now has similar numbers to Disney+. So while many people have joked about Tubi having low-budget movies, the numbers don't lie.

In fact, I was one of those people who didn't get the appeal of Tubi, but the more I watched it, the more I enjoyed the content. They have some of our favorite TV series, such as Scandal and Star, as well as big films like the Fast and Furious franchise and cult classic Love & Basketball.
