A Different World is one of those classic television shows that shed light on many heavy topics in though-provoking ways. It was the type of show where you could identify with one or more of the characters, therefore you could feel that your voice was somehow heard. At least that was the case for me.

But even more than that, I enjoyed the dynamics of the characters in the show. You could probably imagine that one of my all-time favorite TV relationships is the one between Dwayne Wayne and Whitley Gilbert. Though they were fictional characters, there was no denying that their story – from friendship to love – is one that many of us aspired to.

 The #LoveandLead series is meant to pull out the lessons learned from different types of women and couples, even those that are fictional. In this case, the maturation of Whitley, from pampered youth to sophisticated woman, was a storyline that was as inspiring as it was entertaining to watch. With that came the development of her relationship with Dwayne. In the end, we wanted to see them together. We wanted to see them thrive. We wanted them to win.

What I love most about their story is that it did not happen overnight. Both characters had to learn and grow and mature into the people that they became, showing us that sometimes the right win can take the right attitude, the right timing, and certainly the right positioning.

So…

The #LoveandLead lesson is to trust the process.  Whatever it is that you are seeking will come in its due time. Whether personal or professional, there are steps that have to be taken in order for you to reach your goal. Do your part, trust the process, mature and grow with the right attitude. Thereafter will you find your answer and reach your goal.
