Picked up this from listening to Charlamagne the God’s audiobook. He recalls the story of when Beyonce walked into the room. According to Charlamagne there was several people in the room and when Beyonce came in she made it a point to walk up to each person and introduce herself.
Introducing yourself isn’t out of the ordinary, but it is when you are Beyonce – one of the most famous people on the planet.
She didn’t need to introduce herself. Everyone would have known who she is. But instead of assuming that they knew her, she was humble. She was polite when she didn’t have to be. As a result, I can only imagine how it made each person’s day – and more than that. It made a lifetime memory that they would share with countless people. The day that Beyonce took time to talk to them.
For Charlamagne, a famous radio personality, it also impacted him. If Beyonce can do it, why shouldn’t I?
That’s the thing about role models, they show you that doing the small things makes a big impact.
