3 Key Points:

  1. Struggle can make you strong. Adversity is the greatest teacher of all. 
  2. Find a cause and take action. Talk to people to gain perspective and shape your actions.
  3. Politicians don’t resolve problems. It starts with the family. Put your family first, before social media likes or making tons of money. Know who you are. Money isn’t everything, family is. 


Tweetable Quotes:

  • Adversity is the greatest teacher of all. People do try to avoid it. I have this saying, ‘We purchase pleasure for our inability to endure pain.’” – TShane Johnson
  • “Homelessness is outdated. It needs to be rebranded because what happens is that we lump it into a complete group and it’s actually broken up into segments. Many of us are one crisis away from being homeless.” – TShane Johnson
  • “We need to stop blaming everybody else - just start at home. Dads, when you wake up, hug that little nugget. Love them, kiss them, tell them they’re important, annoy them, do all of the things that they don’t like because one day they’ll really appreciate it! Paint your fingernails, put makeup on….who cares, show her that she is important and she’ll never have to search for that from someone else. She will always feel full.” – TShane Johnson
