Create Goals and take action.
Whatever your goals – to go back to school, tochange careers or to become a Chef, write themdown. I recently met a young man who said hewanted to become an entrepreneur when he leftschool. He’d thought about the business, a barbershop, a car wash, and something to do in finance. Itold him that was fine to have these goals, but he hadto do one thing at a time, and once business issuccessful, leverage that business capital to help startanother, Why? Because if he doesn’t he wont havethe focus he needs to finish that goal, one before hetrips along trying to get the next one. Having goalsare great but once you figure out what they are, writean action plan to get you there, if it’s abusiness, forexample, its means writing a business plan and thenfollowing those steps to start and maintain yourbusiness. And don’t get discouraged if your plandoesn’t go exactly as hoped. Rethink it, rework it andthen take action, otherwise your simply dreaming.

Lets think about it!If I arn you, Young G, all the time, about the majorlosses you will suffer and cause contributing to thecorruption of this life, it will not likely make animpression on you (…of course we actually believewere created by pain anyway) I feel that because wecant trust a lot of the vicarious knowledge (meanknowledge learned through others experiences)passed on by some of our OG’s and depending onour measure of tolerance, sensitivity and stayingdown strength. We still have to live through themadness. What is the Psychology the influencebehind this? The overwhelming attraction that makesus go there and do that “ so we can claim “been theredone that” What are we thinking or feeling when weknowingly commit an act we know is wrong,whereas, if we think back on history of the act werealize that it never once resulted in success. Why dowe move throughout life like this! And after beingshot, shooting, banged and being banged, jacked or jacking and then spending time(s) in prisons. Whatmakes us plan to do wrong in a better way? How canwe better do wrong? To what degree does peerpressure indecision and confusion, as opposed tothinking, analyzing or seeking guidance affect ourdecision to live, bettering whats wrong in our life?Now try to imagine what the person whos workedand struggled all through life, what type of factorsweigh in on their decision making process what is thetrue reality which influences their struggles tosucceed. Then remember the fact that we’ve had thechoice to go either way in life, regardless of theexcuses, where you can place the blame on others ora certain situation. Think of why others turned downthis way of life, when they’ve had tochoose/undertake the same decision making process.
