I got inspired and I saw it fitting that I should share these wise words with my community. As we are chasing our dreams we need to be in the right mindset so that we can achieve optimum results. Be motivated and share with others.
“There is no prize out there. The only prize is this one [points to self], and what you feel, and what you want to accomplish…
I mean, to want and to be ambitious, and to want to be successful is not enough. That’s just desire.
To know what you want; to understand why you’re doing it; to dedicate every breath in your body, to achieve… If you feel you have something to give, if you feel your particular talent is worth developing, is worth caring for, then there’s nothing you can’t achieve.
You’re going to grow up with your colleagues. You’re going to watch them have success and watch them have failure, and you’re going to watch how they deal with it. And they can be as much a teacher for you as anyone here, or anyone who’s privileged enough to come here and speak to you.”
– Kevin Spacey
I keep wondering, “am I the only person who views society as robots except for those guys who create Sci-fi content?”. It is insane to me because most of what they create is actually happening in society, it is not futuristic or out of this world. Do people really observe the world they live in? I doubt it.
We are sold so much content through advertising, the internet and television. The terrible thing is that we are not choosing what to buy, we are buying everything. It seems like we are coded to behave in certain ways. Pop culture has really taken over the world.
I watched “irobort” the other day, and I saw the robots as human beings, one day we will all be commanded by one man, and so far it seems like Zuckerberg will be that man because he is coding us the best.
Ideas are sold to us daily through different streams of media and we buy them without thinking, the “bad” ideas are the easiest to buy because they look so “good” (fast food, porn, luxury, and insurance are just a few bad ideas). “Who ever controls the media controls the mind” – Jim Morrison

Just over thinking, maybe not.
I used to pretend not to notice however I did, I noticed every single thing. Damn for you!
I hate pretending, therefore I hate pretenders. I see people come with many different intentions. They come to stroke their egos, they come to pity and they come to benchmark. Pure intentions are very rare these days. I prefer straight forward people because they know what they want, and that allows everyone not to waste anyone’s time.
Just being real cause I am tired of pretending that I don’t notice, I studied and after analysing my studies I was left with a “heavy heart”. Blood is not thicker than water, all blood is water, and all water can be flushed away. My blood was conceived by “water”… so just imagine what I think Blood is to me.

As I place my glass of bubbly down. I am totally convinced that being “Black” has nothing to do with complexion; it is a mindset.
Complexion was a default which was used to identify who to train to be “black” and who to train to be “white”. I literally would love to sit down and have a conversation with the architects of apartheid and American slave mastery. What they did was genius because it was social engineering which will forever place the “black” man at a disadvantage against his white counterparts.
All I want more than anything in the world is to use the same method to elevate my “black” people. This method of engineering is proving to have generational repercussions. And that is all I want for my people, I want us to win and create generational wealth, exactly the same way slave masters did; the only difference is that we will use modern technics so that it can be politically correct.
My people started being wealthy, they had everything life had to offer. “White men” came and made them slaves because they offered everything men had to offer. They worked for free as slaves, then the system changed, now they work for wages so that they can buy from their slave masters to make them richer. Today they are beyond poor because they owe their masters, so basically what are they working for? To pay debt? They will never pay it off, because they use their pension funds to get credit. These people are still slaves, they were just changed to employees and slave masters to employers to make everything politically correct.
“Black” people are conditioned to work. Employment is a big trend today, and I want to engineer my people to remember their roots of being trades men and women. Work for yourself by creating your passion and trade it when you want something else like money. In that way you will never be poor.
Pablo Picasso painted his passion, today it sells for millions, Jay Z raps his life today his music makes him millions. He doesn’t even work, he is just living his life and records it so that we can listen to how he lives it. Passion doesn’t count as work because you could do it for free anyways. Why is Art so expensive?
The only reason why they are called black is because there is no light in the brain, they are clueless about life and therefore they are living dark poor lives.
What do you love? Create it and sell it the shit out of it. That will be the day you realize that you are actually “White” because everyone will suddenly treat you like a white man, and you will realize that you are actually living like one.
Think about this. The reason why I say “Black” has nothing to do with complexion is because everyone who owns the system they are in doesn’t work. There is no employee which spends the whole day in restaurants. There is no employee which spends the whole day in shopping malls and definitely there is no employee that goes on random holidays, because employees are working and when they are not; they don’t have money to do that shit. We wouldn’t observe that because slave masters are no longer just “white”. Class is the new discriminator.
As I pick up my glass of bubbles, all I can say is observe society, and do what you love.
Saw the traps and been avoiding them ever since.
Mindset, education, empowerment, certification, economics
We live in a time where we are in desperate need of skilled people who can be employed or who can be trusted with funding to create enterprises. Certification shouldn’t be a huge barrier as it is. We need to find better quality and faster ways to certify people so that we can tackle economic issues and allow everyone to participate in economics.
The issue about certification needs to be addressed through addressing what education is, and what one needs to know for one to be seen as “educated” in a certain field. We have people who are highly educated but do not have the means to focus on school for three years or more. We need to be able to certify these people faster if they can be able to prove that they are “educated” according to a standard which can allow them to be employed or funded to start enterprises.
The issue here is the ability to create trust concerning education. And right now people only trust that other people are “educated” through certification. It is a rare instance where people are afforded the ability to engage in conversation, internships or other programs which can afford them benefit of the doubt about where they are in terms of education without them being certified.
One of the disadvantages of “certified education” is that it becomes outdated and eventually obsolete. Education is continuous learning and engagement. No certification can prove that an application developer will still be qualified, current and relevant after 3 three years if they do not engage or continue learning; because the industry evolves rapidly. The same scenario applies to other fields as well.
All we need to establish is, can people think critically about issues in their fields and can they solve problems at the required standard or above. Employers, funders, investors and even individuals who are capable of creating; need to stop depending on educational institutions. They need to critically engage prospects themselves, because through this line of thinking we will be able to rapidly evolve the economic status of continents such as Africa, South America and many other parts of the world.
There are better and faster ways of creating trust, and certification is the lazy way. As more and more certified people prove to be incompetent because all they did was to cram the theory, While they never engaged practically.
An educated person is a person who can successfully solve problems and use their talents to improve the lives of everyone around them including themselves… educated has nothing to do with certification.

We only get certified to play the game, why not break the rules?
From the day we are born, we start learning how to live in this complex world. The biggest challenge is not to survive but to live, to enjoy and to have an amazing human experience before we return to our spiritual existence again.
I have realised that most of us are chasing some form of success, socially, financially or otherwise. We are at a constant chase however most of us have never seat down and thought about what we are chasing. We have not defined what our perceptions of our desired success looks like, and that makes the journey impossible to complete.
Frustrations are mostly experienced when people are stuck but they do not understand why they are stuck, they find it impossible to ask for help because they don’t know what to ask for, they basically do not know what is wrong but they know that something is not the way it is supposed to be, because they feel incomplete.
“Successful” people know what they desire, and they know how to achieve their desires. Some people are already “successful” but they desire the glories of success. They are chasing the money, the fame and other things which were not part of the actual dream. Some people have the money and the fame but they have not achieved their dreams therefore they are not successful. A lot of people confuse these two scenarios and that is what stops them from reaching a point of happiness, a point where they are living.
It is important to define your dream. The only way one can achieve anything in life is by defining exactly what one wants to achieve, because without that definition one cannot achieve any form of success because they wouldn’t know how it looks like. There are people who have everything… Think about it!
My dream is to motivate, inspire and teach people how to dream and follow through. I AM DOING EXACTLY THAT EVERYDAY in various ways. That means I am successful. Everything which comes after me doing what I love is the Glory of success.
We desire to live, however we trap our selves in a state of surviving because we cannot define our desires. We are sold everything and we want everything. At the end of the day our happiness, our lives don’t lie in having everything, they lie in that definition we need to all figure out.
