During a recent interview with Hoda Kotb via TODAY, former Los Angeles Lakers center and DJ Shaquille O’Neal has shared his thoughts about his favorite quote, why he uses social media and the importance of his mom in his life.
“When I send out tweets it’s 60 percent to make you laugh, 30 percent to inspire you and 10 percent to promote what I’m selling. I came up with that formula because when I first started doing Twitter I didn’t really understand social media. I was kinda in showoff mode. ‘Look at my house, look at my boat.’ My mom called me and she said ‘Stop showing off. Be humble. You should use that to inspire people.’”
DJ Diesel also explained that his mother has never steered him in the wrong direction. He said:
“She’s always been right, she’s never been wrong. She’s never gave me the wrong information. She’s so calm about her approach. I can be upset about certain things and she’d [stay] so calm and it always worked out. Don’t forget where you come from and make people remember your name. Whenever I do or say something I imagine her in front of the TV watching. Every man should love and respect the women first of all and they should definitely respect and love their mother.”
