What do folks do when they need to get-away? Well it depends on the reason for such a move. It could simply be stepping away from the grind with a quick weekend trip or vacation R&R. Sometimes it’s for health reasons as was reported in the news about women’s basketball head coach C. Vivian Stringer.

Wendy Williams and Nick Cannon have been down that road too. Williams returned to her talk show after stepping away for a couple months. As rumors swirled around issues in her marriage, she says it was more about dealing with Graves disease. Now she’s back as her story became its own hot topic.

Cannon once had to pull-back his regular schedule when dealing with blood clots in his lung. He left his radio show and reduced the demand on his time. He has since cranked things up again with his various hosting, producing and podcasting roles in media. He made sure to avoid a spinout in his dreams.

They took similar steps to avoid things going off the rails from a career skid. In part they had to manage how their story became tabloid news. Williams, the one-time radio gossip queen finds her own story making headlines. Some fans aren’t satisfied with the explanation but maybe the dust will soon settle.

Cannon was a fill-in host while she was out. She kept him up-to-date on what she was going through. Their bond might be in knowing there are times when ‘self’ gotta come first. True, it takes a lot of skill, will and at times getting over a hill to come first in life. But it’s ok for self to come first when there’s need for:

  1. Self-aware

Cannon is the host of the new reality show Masked Singer. Artist T-Pain was the first winner and he’s off to rebranding himself. Most folks know him as a rapper. But he knew that he had singing chops behind the mask. He showed fans how being self-aware is knowing what you bring even when others can’t see it.

  1. Self-care

Williams and Cannon had similar moments of having to deal with self-care. At the time, he left his morning radio show and cut back on his other duties. Sometimes self-care isn’t just about the physical. It might also be the spiritual and emotional. In the case of Williams, it might even be relational and her marriage.

  1. Self-motivated

There’re times when the grind can get in the way of the love. Williams doesn’t want that love at home to fade. But the grind can also take away from the love of the game. It’s that hustle-love of the game that keeps us self-motivated. Even beyond health reasons, being self-motivated is important to level-up your play.

  1. Self-assured

After his America’s Got Talent hosting gig ended, Cannon stepped-away for a bit. Since then he’s returned to TV on Masked Singer wearing a Turban. He says that came from spiritual reflection. Clearly, he took some time for ‘self’ which is now seen in his latest swagger of being self-assured.

Williams will be back to her old self, giving fans new reasons to watch. Some might want to know more about the rumors behind her time-off. Cannon is back to ramping up his work in showbiz. They know if you want to ‘run run run’ in the game you need to be self-aware and do self-care to have ‘fun fun fun.’

Tip: If you want to crank-up your best work and ‘run run run’ in the game you gotta be self-motivated and self-assured as you have ‘fun fun fun.’

Prince Harry is coming to America yet again! This time it’s for the Invictus Games where wounded warriors compete in sports. The last time Harry was here TMZ photos had him in a bind. Simon Cowell is coming back to America too. So he and Harry made a deal with fans for shifting gears into a new grind.

Cowell joins the Judges Panel on America’s Got Talent (AGT). About his new role he tells the Hollywood Reporter “When you’re there, when you discover a star … you’ll never forget that moment.” They remind us of the best thing about having the most fun, games and value as a team player or business leader.

After spending 10 years in the British Army, Harry wanted to find ways to honor those he served with who were injured. So the idea of the Invictus Games was brought to life in 2014. While some might be dealing with a loss in their physical or mental condition, the event gives them a way to re-imagine their potential.

Harry hopes this will inspire people everywhere on expanding their options. For Cowell, his return to the American scene is a kind of professional reboot. He’s the creator/producer of AGT and many other talent programs. He feels it’s some good times wishing on a star, to follow dreams where they are in going far.

The thing that makes them similar yet different is their approach to reinventing themselves. Harry has changed the perception since his Vegas visit, while Cowell continues to change the game in TV ratings. It’s a lesson for pros, regular Jane’s & Joe’s on those special fun moments at work or in everyday roles.

The Prince is coming to town. Harry’s showing he’s grown. Here for Invictus Games with friends. Supporting them to the ends. Wounded warriors compete in sports. Helps them manage the hurts. Simon Cowell back at it too. They’re being tried and true. In showing fans a new grind. Long after a past bind.

Cowell joins panel of judges. On America’s Got Talent he nudges. About his role he says you never forget. Watching stars advance a simple project. Being there is like a Twitter moment. A winning formula and success component. The most fun, games and biz value. No matter where the performance venue.

After 10 years as British soldier. Harry’s ready to go bolder. To honor those injured in the trenches. As they move past the recovery benches. Some dealing with loss in physical condition. Invictus Games born to shift their vision. A way to re-imagine one’s potential. And maybe a new view of the providential.

Harry hopes it’s an inspiration. For people across every nation. In doing more to expand their option. Will Cowell’s return to the scene? Mean seeing more of his mean? But really it’s a reboot in positioning. As creator/producer of talent programming. Wishing on a star to follow new stars blossoming.

What makes them one and the same. Is how they’re reinventing their game. Harry’s new perception after Vegas trip. Cowell taking new risks to let it rip. He keeps raising the stakes in TV rating. With more opportunities for the taking. Lesson in special moments for the pros. Or everyday roles for Jane’s & Joe’s.
