I will admit it. At first I was a little skeptical about watching Queen of the South. A few days ago I ran across the actually trailer. Once I was a business woman/entrepreneur I was sold. Once I saw that she was a minority I was sold even more.
For those of you who did know what this show is or what it’s about, it’s about a woman who gets romanically involved with a drug dealer and her life just goes downhill from there. I was only looking to be entertained, but I did learn a few things in watching this show.
1. There is never an excuse to give up.
The main character’s name is Teresa. She is truly a surviver. She had every reason to give up, but she didn’t. She got placed in tough situations and had to figure a way out.
Life will throw us lemons. We must never give up. We must stay persistent in our efforts, knowing that better days are ahead.
2. If you want it you will go after it.
Nothing is promised to anyone and everyone wants something. It’s not anyone’s job to hand you over what you want. Getting what you want takes getting off your butt, and doing uncomfortable things. She wanted freedom and to help her friend as well.
3. Risks can cost you everything, but are necessary.
If you never take a risk you will never know. Taking a risk doesn’t mean the timing will be right. Taking a risk does not mean that everyone will support or like what you are doing.
4. You determine if you want to live.|Everyday is a fight.
Everyday is a fight. You’re either going to get in the fight or gain nothing.
5. You have to think quick on your feet.
Every situation can’t be planned and will not go as planned. You have to be able to think quickly on you’re feet.
6. Networking is one of the keys to success.
Who you know is more powerful than what you know. Get out and build relationships with people. Create your own circle of friends and acquaintances.
8. Sometimes you will be put in situations you dont want to be in, but detemine how you will get out.
Sometimes we will be thrown into situations we didn’t ask for. You either roll with the punches or get punched. Being in a situation you didn’t ask for gives you no excuse to not be your best anyway.
