Jennifer Lopez is taking a moment to reflect.
The 51-year-old entertainer talked about what she first learned while in therapy and found her purpose during a chat with Jay Shetty for the debut episode of Coach Conversations. Entitled “What is your vocation?” The two touched on the importance of loving yourself in order to live your life to the fullest.
“I remember when I was in therapy, in my early 30s, and there was a lot of talk about loving yourself,” JLo recalls. “And I was like, ‘I love myself.’ But obviously I was doing all these things, as if my personal relationships didn’t seem to love myself.”
“I didn’t even understand the concept,” he adds. “It took time and it is a journey and it is still a journey for me.”
Now at the height of her career, López admits there were times when she knew she wasn’t the best dancer or performer, but she always gave it her all and never gave up.
Lopez continues to have big goals and plans for herself, sharing that her mantra for 2021 is “keep dreaming.”
“My dream is that together, this year, we can make a more unified, more loving, more receptive and more understanding world,” he shares. “I always want to inspire, inspire different things in people … and in these times, where we can all feel lost, I want to give people some hope and direction.”
With that, the Scammers Star knows what her calling is and what she can give to the world.
“My calling is to empower, inspire and entertain,” he says. “Those are the things that I do and by entertaining, I hope to always be encouraging and inspiring people to be the best at what they want to do.”
As for helping others find their purpose, he acknowledges that “there is a lot of pressure around [finding your purpose]. “” And the most important thing is that you have to listen to yourself, and the words that you say to yourself, “he says.” What you say and what you think – and I tell my children this all the time – becomes your reality. “
Earlier this week, Lopez was part of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ unveiling in Washington, DC The Bronx native paid tribute to the Latino community while performing “This Land Is Your Land.”
