Inner peace is the new success! Even though having millions of dollars, nice house, and a good wife is good, thats not what is going to make you happy. If you want to be flexing on instagram and trying to impress the people you know, it will never make you happy. We all have to stop getting fooled by reality TV and marketing because it will leave you feeling like shit. Most people you see on TV are not natural and many have problems like everyone else. Society has tried to condition us all to be content with a 9 to 5 job and follow all the rules even if there shit. We got to take our life into our own hands because we are capable of accomplishing a lot more than we think. People are focused on the wrong things such as who has a better car or job but in realty we need to start asking ourselves how can we help the next person. People become success by providing value and solving problems. We have been told our whole life that we need to go to school to get a good job but thats not true. A high school dropout with goals and work ethic can make way more money than a teacher who studied 5 years in college. It is not easy but its possible if you have the right mentality. Fuck negative people who criticize others for chasing their dreams. In the end, we are in control of our life’s and we need to stop making excus
Kendrick Lamar has been inspiration for many people. Whether it be his lyrics, message, or influence, many people like his music and down to earth personality. Kendrick Lamar has always been my favorite rapper because he made it out of Compton and he likes to give back and uplift the people. I grew up 30 minutes away from Compton and I can relate to a lot of his lyrics. The mind is a very powerful thing and you can use it for good or bad. If you want to do something in life, if you do it for 21 straight days, it becomes a habit. People now a days try to stunt on social media but in reality there’s a lot of unknowns when it comes to instagram pictures. Meeting Kendrick Lamar, he did not have no rolex watch or gold chains. He is very humble who tries to help the youth. Money does not change you, it only shows your real personality. Today was a good day.
Many times I wonder, what am I putting in my body? I started reading about Monsanto and how they spray many chemicals on the foods we eat such as beans, fruits, etc and that stuff goes in our body. This is what contributes to diseases such as cancer and mental illness. Many times people who are in the middle-lower class don’t pay attention to this because they just want low prices. This is why the government is making us stupid. The agriculture, food industry try to feed us these lies that we need milk and protein to have strong muscles and get protein. In reality dairy is known to cause acne and weaken our bones and spinach is known to have more protein than meats. With all these GMO foods, we are getting sick. In many other countries outside the USA, they banned artificial sweeteners and other processed junk. Even with all this nonsense, we got to be grateful that we have choices on what we eat. Other people in different countries are staring to death. We got to make good decisions and aware of these things.
I once heard a wise man say that you choose what kind of hard you want to live. You can either struggle to pay bills while being poor or you can struggle to become someone in life. Both are hard and you got to be willing to put in work. Many times many young teens don’t think about the consequences of their actions. Most of the time they aren’t looking at the bigger picture. They are stuck in the mindset of trying to be cool, drinking beer, or doing drugs. I don’t think smoking weed is a bad thing if you got your goals and are focused but I know a lot of people who just smoke and don’t do anything in life. The government has conditioned us to be stuck in the system but the masses don’t know due to the lack of reading self development books. Mass media has influenced many of our lives and has tried to put limits on what we can accomplish in life. Anyone can do anything if life if you put you mind to it.
Many people lack motivation. You have to have a “why” when you are trying to accomplish anything in life. If it is not worth it you won’t put in work. The first thing you got to do is write down your goals and make them simple as possible. As you start seeing small success, this will motivate you to continue forward. Nowadays people are too consumed with social media which causes them to compare their life with others. Comparing to others can be deadly, instead you can take those people and you use them as inspiration. You got to help people to be successful. Also, competing is good but not always. Most of the time you should collaborate. Having confidence and motivation is essential when chasing your dreams. You got to believe in yourself in anything you. Towards the end of the podcast i talk about what tattoos represent.
Today in film class the professor started talking about God and religion. Some people say it is not real because science doesn’t show any evidence while others say you have to have faith. We are all energy and we can accomplish so much in this world if we put in work. Many people have fears of the afterlife and use religion as a way to keep pushing forward.
Many people think college is the only way to be successful but their are countless stories of people who decided to go the unconventional route and master their craft using the internet and the library! Luck does not exist. I once heard someone say luck is when preparation meets opportunity! I feel that anyone can accomplish anything they set their mind to if their willing to put in the work!
