What Black History Month Can Teach Us About Resilience Life Isn’t Fair, but That’s No Excuse for Giving Up

Dee Carroll

Black History Month is celebrated in February and Women’s History Month in March. At a time when so many people in both groups are repeatedly told that they’ll never be able to achieve success, author Dr. Dee Carroll asserts that we all have the power to reach our goals, no matter our circumstances.

“While Black History Month offers the opportunity to celebrate our strength and resilience, we have much more to overcome. However, this culture of low expectations shouldn’t be used as an excuse. Don’t allow that to be a stumbling block; use it as an incentive to move beyond!” Dr. Carroll says.

Having faced huge challenges in her own life, Dr. Carroll says that the only one who can keep you from success is you. She encourages people to stop focusing on their obstacles, and look inward to their personal strengths that can propel them to the kind of life they’ve always wanted.  

“Moving beyond is a choice!” Dr. Carroll often tells audiences. “Overcoming setbacks and being resilient are requirements to get to where you want to be. It’s not for the weak or quitters, it’s for the ones who refuse to allow anything to get in their way. It may take a bit more work, a bit more drive, determination and tenacity, but it can be done.”

Dr. Carroll can share:

  • Why negative beliefs can do more harm than real challenges.
  • How to use life’s roadblocks to become stronger and more successful.
  • What you can do to stop feeling overwhelmed and defeated.
  • Why changing your mindset is easier than you think.
  • A 30-second quick fix for releasing, recovering and reinventing yourself.
