JORDIN Sparks has revealed that she would reassure her 17-year-old self to be more confident and not worry as much.
She shared, “I’d say, ‘You’re on the right track; don’t doubt so much.”
Jordin – who recently split from her long-term boyfriend Jason Derulo, 25 – also had some advice for her fans.
Talking on ‘The View’ last Thursday she said: “If there’s anything you want to do in life, it does require hard work. Be kind to people, show up on time – practise, practise, practise – and do your research if that’s what your respective field requires. But if you’re going to do it, make sure it’s what you want to do and tackle it head on.”
The beautiful singer also shared some advice that her former American football player dad Phillippi Sparks gave her.
She told the show, “My dad said there’s always going to be somebody coming up behind you, trying to take your spot, so you’ve got to be the best that you can be at all times.
“In life, I always go back to my family. My family keeps me grounded.
“They remind me what’s important. And also, I’ve always just wanted to teach myself, and I’ve just always wanted to become better.
“I get motivated by everyone else doing all of these many amazing things, and I go, ‘You know what… I’m going to step up my game, and I’m going to do it for me’,” – BANG!
