No One Wants To Hate Their Job

There’s nothing worse than waking up for a job that you hate. Lying in bed, struggling to remove sheets and covers as you try to ignore the alarm on your iPhone that plays the same portion of Tyler The Creator’s “I Ain’t Got Time” like it does EVERY morning feels like penance for some foul act that you committed in a past life. Make your way to the bathroom and stare at a worn face in a mirror, shake your head then pray that the shower rids you of your current neanderthal like disposition. After you put on your “appropriate” work attire, reality sets in as you walk out the door that the next 8 hours of your life will be just another battle in an ongoing war with no foreseeable end.

1. Everything that you need to succeed is in your environment. To further explain my point, we can use the historical perspective. The indigenous peoples of the Americas lived off of the land by becoming very familiar with all of their resources. Everyday living produced live or die scenarios. There were no luxuries as we know them, only bare necessities. They weren’t saying “If we only had arrowheads made out of titanium, then we could really hunt deer!” because all that they did have in their possession was all that they needed. We psyche ourselves out by thinking that we aren’t enough or our place in life isn’t worthy of the kind of elevation that we dream of. I was under the impression that I lacked the necessary materials which hindered many of my moves and it took a multitude of self inflicted losses to reprogram my mindset. I don’t need to buy the most expensive camera or the most hi-tech technology to be a dope writer, blogger, or most importantly a great person. All that I need right now is a heart full of fire and hands filled with the grains of consistency. Continue reading

Eagles Bombin’, 2012(?)

1. Last night I had conversation with both my grandmothers who are as of now, my only grandparents. I had a brief conversation with one, who’s currently in her 90s and although we spoke briefly it was great to hear her voice. My other grandmother, gave me advice that I didn’t think that I needed but damn she was right on time. As an only child, I had very close relationships with my grandparents. So needless to say when my grandfather passed it had a profound affect on me. The love and lessons that I received from my grandmothers over the years were centered in maintaining faith. I might not have been the church going grandson that my mother’s mother wanted me to be at times but she let me be me and that’s all that I could have ever asked for. Two of the greatest examples of strong women that I’ll see in my lifetime. Continue reading

@GaryVee “When You Fear Everything You Fear Nothing”

Take notes from the God Gary Vee. I’m applying all that I’ve learned from his video blogs to my next moves and ventures. Yesterday, I told a few friends something to the effect of the day should be a marker for new beginnings. I had a lunch meeting set for that afternoon and I made an exclamation of how I wanted it work to in my favor. I’m happy to have a 9-5 but I’ll be damned if that’s all that I do or all that I’m known for legacy wise. I believe that the true way to give thanks for all you’re given is to take your gift serious and rise to the occasion EACH TIME.

1. Last night, after watching my cousin perform (and kill it) with Dr. B’s Groove at World Cafe Live, I made it home with tons of thoughts rolling through my head. Maybe those two drinks that I had during the show made me very incessant about the points that I wanted to make. While highly buzzed, I called my good friend Chris and went into a maelstrom of topics but the most important (and the only thing that I can remember) portion of it dealt with the idea of having a legacy. This blog isn’t a place for me to stroke my ego, it’s an extension of self for the sake of leaving a digital footprint. Like the Gorillaz said on their Demon Dayz album, Tomorrow Comes Day and with that in mind, every thing that I do on a social media platform should leave some kind of impression. A positive and meaningful impression. If have a podcast, a blog, vlogs, fire tweets, etc., make sure that represents you in the best way possible. The shape of the future depends on us.   Continue reading

How To Bring In The New Year: “Cancel That B*tch” Figuratively…

With 2015 approaching as the hours fall, we all should truly undergo a cleansing of sorts. There’s no better way to get rid of the old and bring in the new than by “Canceling that B*tch” that’s right everyone, follow in the footsteps of New Jack City’s Nino Brown and “Cancel that B*tch”. Now the “B*tch” that’s being cancelled can be the X in your life’s algebraic equation. Crazy significant others, horrible jobs, debilitating states of mind, drug addiction, watching Love and Hip-Hop, and family/friends that post absolute horse shit on social media can all be CANCELLED. Don’t bring any of that unnecessary drama into the new year. Surround yourselves with love and positivity and work for elevation. To quote the great Abraham Lincoln during Bill & Ted’s history presentation at San Dimas high school, “Be excellent to each other. And… PARTY ON, DUDES!” It’s as easy as that. Don’t worry about the past as it won’t affect your future unless you allow it to happen. When in doubt, be like Nino and “Cancel That B*tch” because this is your world and you can “buy another one”.
