He’s just getting started.

At just 10-years-old, King Nahh is making a difference in the lives of both kids his age and adults. He’s one of the world’s youngest motivational speakers and according to his website, “loves to inspire parents and children.” He gives talks around the world around the topics of learning, love, family and safety just to name a few.

Most recently, King Nahh dropped some words of wisdom around the topic being materialistic. The topic came up when some kids his age made fun of him for wearing a certain brand of shoes.

He tells the kid, “It’s not about what I have on my feet, it’s about what I have inside my head,” and asks parents not to raise their kids to be the “materialistic type,” because this leads kids to think they are important and what’s most important is the knowledge they carry with them.

King Nahh is wise beyond his years. Imagine if more of us thought like him and didn’t care about material things and cared more about the knowledge and power that’s inside of them.

Just remember, you don’t have to be 10 years old or even 100 years old to have knowledge and wisdom. What knowledge do you have that you can share with others? Let us know in the comments below.
