The Psychology of African American Success

Don’t be afraid of success! Celebrate your accomplishments and keep working toward being your best. Many of us are our own worst critics and we engage in behaviors that only serve to keep us from reaching our full potential. You know that you are capable of being even more and greater than who you are today. Life is too short for regrets. Take a look at this article from The Black Collegian Online written by two black psychologists and gain a better understanding of “survival conflict”, better defined by the efforts of black professionals to live dual lives of successfulness in a white world while maintaining a “keep it real” connection to a black world. It’s all one world, and you are one person. Be who you are and unify your dualness to focus on becoming even better.
