- Here’s everything Beyoncé to the new generations and the graduates of 2020.
“This is a crucial time in our history and in your life. The earth is ripping that bandaid off so we can really see our wounds. So we can acknowledge and nurture them. That’s when true healing begins.”— Beyoncé
“Keep your eye on your intention. Don’t let any outside distraction or your own insecurity stop you from your goals. Embrace that struggle. Surviving that struggle will strengthen you.” — Beyoncé
“To the young women, our future leaders, know that you’re about to make the world turn. I see you. You are everything the world needs. Make those power moves. Be excellent. — Beyoncé
“Don’t talk about what you’re gonna do. Don’t just dream about what you’re gonna do. Don’t criticize somebody else for what they’re not doing. You, be it. Be about it. Be about that action and go do it.” — Beyoncé
“I urge you to let this current moment push you to improve yourself in all areas of your life. At work, at home, activism, spirituality, wherever you can find hope, follow it. — Beyoncé
And remember, you’re never alone. Lean on that strength of togetherness. Keep the collective strong.” And to the young kings, lean into your vulnerability and redefine masculinity. Lead with heart.” — Beyoncé
“Never forget: we can disagree in a way that is productive to arrive at decisions that foster real change. And if you make a mistake, that’s okay too. But we all have a responsibility to hold ourselves accountable and change.” — Beyoncé
“Every action you take has consequences for yourself and your community.
Look what you’ve been able to do in the last 14 days. We’ve seen the power of the collective. We’ve seen what happens when we join for the same cause. Please continue to be the voice for the voiceless.” – Beyoncé
“When you bet on yourself, you’re making an investment into your own future. When you choose to spend your valuable time thinking, speaking, typing negative thoughts, you’re investing in something that will give you absolutely no return in your investment.” — Beyoncé
“I remain a work-in-progress and that’s the beauty of growth. I’ve been happiest when I let go and allow life to show me the next move.” — Beyoncé
“Whenever you feel like you’re not in control or that the world is against you, let that vulnerability motivates you into greatness. That’s how I found my true self.” — Beyoncé
“Now with success comes challenges. With your wins, you may start to notice people spending a lot of energy trying to tear you down. Try not to take it personally. Unfortunately, it’s something that comes along with success.” — Beyoncé
“There may be more failures than victories. Yes, I’ve been blessed to have 24 GRAMMYs. But I’ve lost 46 times. That meant rejection 46 times.
Please don’t ever feel entitled to win. Just keep working harder. Losing can be the best motivator to get you even bigger wins” — Beyoncé
“I’m often asked, ‘What’s your secret to success?’
The shorter answer: putting that work.” — Beyoncé
“Respect is everything. There’s no successful relationship without respect, nor a successful movement if the basic principle is not respect. The world will respect you as much as you respect yourself.” — Beyoncé
“If you’ve ever been called dumb, unattractive, overweight, unworthy, untalented… well, so have I.
Whatever you do, don’t let the negativity of people projecting their own self-doubts on you to tear you from your focus.” — Beyoncé
“Your queerness is beautiful. Your Blackness is beautiful. Your compassion, your understanding, your fight for people who may be different from you, is beautiful.
I hope you continue to go into the world and show them that you will never stop being yourself.” — Beyoncé
“To all those who feel different, if you’re part of a group that’s called ‘other,’ a group that does not get the chance to be center stage: Build your own stage and make them see you.” — Beyoncé
“Don’t make the world make you feel that you have to look a certain way to be brilliant. And, no, you don’t have to speak a certain way to be brilliant. But you do have to spread your gift around the planet in a way that is authentically you.” — Beyoncé
“To the young women, our future leaders, know that you’re about to make the world turn. I see you. You are everything the world needs. Make those power moves. Be excellent.
And to the young kings, lean into your vulnerability and redefine masculinity. Lead with heart.” — Beyoncé
“One of the main purposes of my art has been dedicated to showing the beauty of Black people to the world. Our history. Our profundity. The value of Black lives. And I’ve tried my best to pull down the veil of appeasement to those who may feel uncomfortable with our excellence.” – Beyonce
“Not enough Black women had a seat at the table, so I had to chop down that wood and build my own table. Then I had to invite the best there was to have a seat. That meant hiring women, men, outsiders, underdogs. And I’ve been very proud to provide them with a place at my table.” – Beyonce
“The entertainment business is still very sexist. And, as a woman, I did not see enough female role models given the opportunity to do what I knew I had to do. To run my label and management company. Owning my masters. Owning my art. Owning my future. And writing my own story.” – Beyonce
