Top 5 lessons we can all learn from Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland released her latest album "Here I Am" this past Tuesday to seemingly mixed reviews. I listened to the album and my honest opinion is that it's just ayite. Be that as may, no-one can deny that Kells is on fire right now. Her single Motivation feat Lil Wayne has stayed at no. 1 for 5 consecutive weeks in the US. She's even doing better than her sis Beyonce who has not one but two singles under performing  on the charts as compared to Miss Kelly.

Love her or hate her, I believe we can all learn a thing or two from Kelly. During her press rounds over the last few weeks, I have found her refreshingly warm and genuine (still think her music is average) but I can't deny her star power. So friends here is my top 5 list of lessons we can pick up from Kelly.

1. Don't be afraid to change what you don't like about yourself. Kelly has been very open about her boob job that she got a few years ago. There is no shame in her game. She is also a devout workout fanatic and often tweets about her rigorous workout and strict diet. Her body is evidence of her hard work. Listen, plastic surgery is not for me..but if there is something about yourself that you do not like, change it! It's that simple.

2. Stay in your lane. Every little girl and some grown women (present company included) want to be superstar Beyonce. From the mogul marriage to iconic career as a singer and actress, people have often wondered how it can be that Kelly is not green with envy. Truth be told, Kelly could be content being Bey's sidekick. Exhibiting great wisdom, Miss Rowland has always been supportive of her sister and never in public displayed any signs of jealousy. She has always stayed in her lane. When the time was right she was awarded her chance in the spotlight. The universe will always meet you in the middle when you are ready for your blessings.

3. Rub elbows with the right people. Kelly counts Kim Kardashian, Lala, Ciara and Serena Williams as part of her circle close friends. Being photographed and seen with these people is no coincidence at all. It helps to have your picture splashed all over the glossies. Remember what they say, out of sight out of mind. Now we all cant have friends that have the paparazzi following them around but it is always good to keep in mind that like attracts like. Be wary of the company you keep.

4. Don't hurry love. If you rewind back to 2006, Miss Rowland was on track to become married to NFL star Roy Williams. She abruptly broke off the engagement with little explanation leaving the public extra confused. I personally admired her for having the strength to walk away. I'm sure love will come to find the 30 year old singer at some point in her life. The lesson here is don't rush into any situation for the sake of saving face or false love, everything happens in due time.

5. Never give up. I can't lie, if I was Kelly I would most likely had been Michelle. The other member of Destiny's Child. Meaning Michelle is sort of in the spotlight and doesn't seem to be actively chasing a solo career as Kelly. She's just happy to be around and having a little change in her pocket. I ain't mad at Michelle. However, this is not the case with Kells, after being dropped by her label, switching management and failed albums Kelly could have had plenty of reason to give up. Proving that your blessing could literally be around the corner she never gave up. Now on the brink of international stardom as a judge on the UK version of X factor - Kelly is embodying the spirit of never giving up.

So talk to me, thoughts on the post? Also did you buy her album? What are your thoughts on it?
