Everything you need to succeed in life can be found on DJ Khaled's self-care filled Snapchat. The Miami hip-hop artist's "keys to success" are all about taking care of you—using things you can afford, like Dove soap and plants, and things you can aspire to like gold sinks—'cause you the best. His inspirational guide to life is great because it's inclusive, and success is tangible… As long as you respect personal hygiene and follow him on Snapchat.
DJ Khaled's encouraging words started long before he logged onto social media. He named his record label after his mantra, "We The Best," which is now also a phrase chanted by his fans. His album titles include "We Global," "Suffering from Success," "We The Best Forever," and most recently, "I Changed A Lot." Although he's not a rapper, he's responsible for the response-to-your-haters anthems "All I Do Is Win" and "No New Friends." And! We can't forget DJ Khaled's voice. He just sounds like a sincere life coach who really believes in you, because he's been there, and he's changed a lot. He'll never do this. Here's an example:
Just in time for the New Year, let's ride with DJ Khaled through the journey of success—making sure you stay clean, healthy and fresh.
Never play yourself
Cleanliness is #important
Always moisturize with cocoa butter
Use the right soap
Also, the right deodorant
An apple a day will keep the haters away
Don't skimp on vitamins
Always keep a fresh cut
Brush your teeth
Water is key
Don't get discouraged, be chill
Take up gardening
Get a pedicure (once a week)
Find inspiration everywhere
Now, can we start a petition for Oprah to replace Iyanla with DJ Khaled? A DJ Khaled Keys to Success book deal? A cocoa butter marketing campaign revamp? A guide to gardening? Seriously, we have so many ideas—it's all about vibes, you know?
