You Need To Hear This

Most people believe they have a lot of time on their hands. 

You don’t have it. 

Start your own company. Make a family for yourself. Take that journey. Make some cash. Assist others. Make friends with others. Purchase some land. Construct a home. Simply put, DO MORE. 

Before you realize it, your life is over.

Did not want to this to scare you but you anything can happen in life.

Everything you can dream of or wanted to be, make sure you do everything in one possible lifetime.

As Nike would say in every commercial they advertise, Just do it.

How People View You

Social media has completely taken over are lives like we are in another reality.

People posting infographics about racial inequalities of people acting like they care but the same energy disappears a week later

I promise we didn’t follow you for your political opinion but now you’re just follower acting like you care about social issues, stop it.

People will tell you right from wrong thinking they know everything off the basis of them watching CNN, FOX, or some other news station. Do you actually know politics or do you listen to your parents speak about politics so you can seem correct?

I’ve been thinking about this a lot & as humans, we need to heal & connect. A documentary called “The Social Dilemma” really puts everything perspective of what I’m talking about.

If this offends you in any way shape or form. I am not sorry and will never be sorry for speaking my mind and how I feel.

We also have people posting naked on Social media platforms and have millionaires looting stores from Black Lives Matter movements and decide to make a music video afterwards. The funny part about that is more or less we want people to view us in a certain light.

Do I necessarily care? Not at all. But am I talking about it right now? Well, obviously…

Asides the point, people will never meet your exact expectations of how you want them to be and how you need them to act.

We are built off attention and being desired for my generation. Social media has been bigger than its even been. We will see tik tok dances of the president trying to get his message across to the country.

We try so hard for knowing how people view us, we just act however we want & not have to fit societal norms.

It is unrealistic to expect people to see you as yourself”- Epictetus

The Deranged Creative

Trapped in the crevice of my mind thinking what’s the purpose of this meaningful creation in front of me?

Does this product provide value to others or is this some lingering thought in the back of my mind that was needed to be brought out?

Deep down, I am often seen as crazy. Locked in a cage with my thoughts and seen that the narrative of being different, weird, odd, will make me an outcast of society.

People will question me for the things I truly want to create and they perceive me as something that I am not.

All of the thoughts, deepest desires make me sound as if I’m Edgar Allen Poe or need to be in the psych ward.

Well, do I?

Creatives have a side to them nobody else can picture or imagine what they’re going through. My frontal lobe is making me twitch my thumbs or pickup a paint brush that’s right in front of me.

See, I sound like a belong in a psych ward but is anyone even reading these things? The fantasy that lies in my mind is something beyond reach of me day dreaming the day and everything else that comes with it.

Reading this makes me sound completely average to the norm or do I sound like some “woke” person just cause I read books and podcast my thoughts and feelings to the world?

Nobody ever truly knows.

That’s why he’s the deranged creative.

People think he’s out of the norm or just too crazy to grasp concepts of what the average person is thinking on a day to day basis.

Wake Up.

– You didn’t do that workout. 
– That project you’ve been putting off. 
– That girl you haven’t asked out yet. 

All of them are minor LOSSES. 

To you, they may appear to be “nothing” today. 

You’ll notice one day when you wake up. 

Success Builds on itself. Failure has a similar effect.

Please don’t notice when it’s too late because by then you will be wishing of what you could’ve done.

Opinions Of Others

The more successful you become, the less interested you are in what others think of you. Opinions become less and less important as you gain more self-validation through fulfilling goals.

Essentially, all you care about is what you can do to help yourself and those around you.

That’s what is the most important thing in this life, more important than anything materialistic and of money. You should want to be remembered for what you did on this earth instead of the money you make because at the end of the day, you can’t take it to the grave with you.

Nobody will care as much for the money you made, the cars you had, or your materialistic position. It will be about if you created an impact on the lives of others and those around you.

That’s what I’m striving for. So, the next time you worry about someone’s opinion for you doing something, block it out because it’s not going to be of importance to you.

You’re Only Your Age Once

You listening? Good.

Everyday you don’t work on the things that you do, it goes by.

You‘re only your age once. That means each day that passes by you lose valuable time.

I’m not hear to scare you I’m just hear to say it

It’s literally what I need to what hear as well

All these projects I’m consistently work on will mean something bigger than myself when it’s all said & done

What you’re witnessing right here is art. Art is very subjective to many & right here is my art.

It may be sports, business, painting for others but this here, is my art. Day by day I think about how I can improve my writing day by day.

Take this in and work hard because you never know when life can cut short at a moments notice

Don’t let the days go by because one day you’ll will truly regret.

That’s all I have to say, until next time my friends.

The Vivid Dreamer

As dusk starts to hit dawn, the vivid dreamer pictures what his life could be.

Picturing all the wildest possibilities of what could be but isn’t.

That’s because he’s the vivid dreamer.

Day dreaming endless possibilities of what his life could be by hard work & discipline.

Are you that vivid dreamer?

Dreaming what you could be but aren’t quite exactly there yet?

Well, I have news for you. We all are vivid dreamers.

There is light at the end of the tunnel no matter how dark it may seem.

The Life We Chose

Is this the life we chose?

Or did this life choose us?

Moreover, the story is still being written

Flying throughout the night like a Griffin

You would think that they’re hidden

I’m just kidding about the current bidding

All our stories are still being written.

Day by day is how we need to take things

Life is unexpected and we may not know what it might bring

It’s just a whole spectacle of things

Is this the life we chose?
