It is not enough 

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.”

Traps

 ​

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.

Certification

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?

Define

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.

Define the dream

The dog

The other day I was talking a walk in my neighborhood just to relax my mind. As I was walking I passed this strange looking house. There was overgrown grass everywhere as well as vines growing on the walls of the house. The place looked dark as if the sun had already went down. As I was just about to pass that yard a dog started barking. I stopped and looked because this house seemed like it was abounded. The dog was in a cage; it started banging the door of the cage however it couldn’t get out as it barked and barked until the owner came out of the house. It was an old man, he had a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other. He looked at me and said “please move on you are upsetting my dog”. I stood there for a couple of seconds as my mind had just been fucked.
A few seconds later as I was very shocked I “moved on”; I continued with my walk but I couldn’t get what I had just experienced out of my mind. Why is this guy living in such a house? And why is that dog locked in a cage? 
The desperation in the eyes of that dog shows that it never interacts with other people besides its owner, and definitely it never interacts with other dogs. The desperation looked frighteningly dangerous, I am definitely sure that had the dog opened the door of that cage it would have attacked me. It was desperate to do something besides sitting in its cage. It was desperate to have a different experience, however it is literally trapped; literally.
That dog reminded me of a lot of people, all these people including myself we are desperate to live our dreams however we are trapped in systems which promised us “a better future”. Some people are constrained because of the lack of resources(mostly money) as they have been conditioned that they will never live their dreams without these resources or without being part of these systems. As much as this dog is literally trapped, people are equally trapped because what you believe in is very powerful; what you believe in takes over your mind.
Who knows how long has this dog been living in this mans system. It is possible that should it be taken out of that cage it would still live in that small space where the cage used to be and think it is still trapped. At this point it might think it is not trapped because living in a cage is normal to it.
All of us in the world we are trapped by some sort of system, we all have this “man” who has conditioned us to believe that we are not trapped, we cannot see or feel these traps because we have never been taught how to think independently. Everything we know was taught to us.
NOW BE THIS DOG 
Imagine being released for the first time in your life, no system; no “man”. You have never learned anything besides sitting inside that system (cage). Everything you have done is something someone else has done before. Now you are free, the cage is open and you have the opportunity to leave. What would you do? Where would you go?
There is more out there, all we need to do is Dream and stop thinking of things which will stop us. We are not literally trapped; we just need to unlock our minds to new worlds, to new possibilities.
As I continued with my walk I said to myself “I should stop being that dog, I rather be the man!”…

The Man. 

The other day I was talking a walk in my neighborhood just to relax my mind. As I was walking I passed this strange looking house. There was overgrown grass everywhere as well as vines growing on the walls of the house. The place looked dark as if the sun had already went down. As I was just about to pass that yard a dog started barking. I stopped and looked because this house seemed like it was abounded. The dog was in a cage; it started banging the door of the cage however it couldn’t get out as it barked and barked until the owner came out of the house. It was an old man, he had a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other. He looked at me and said “please move on you are upsetting my dog”. I stood there for a couple of seconds as my mind had just been fucked.
A few seconds later as I was very shocked I “moved on”; I continued with my walk but I couldn’t get what I had just experienced out of my mind. Why is this guy living in such a house with a dog locked in a cage in a dark space? The dog will always see you first and indicate your presence to the man. It is an actual alarm, people do not install alarms unless they want to guard something valuable.
The system creator is always very intelligent, the man reminded me of all the powerful men from the past and some from present times. They have some sort of paranoia. It is either they will try as much as possible to hide themselves from public life or they will flex their power to create fear which will prevent people from confirming who they are, what they do or anything that will cause attention to the reason why their system was created. They are always protecting the system and they know that the system starts and ends with them so they are the curse and the blessing to their system. Therefore what is this man doing in such a house?
Pablo Escobar is a classic example from recent times beides your Hitlers, Nelson Mandelas and many others who knew the power they had. They sell a perception which will be appealing to people so that they can capture them into believing in their systems. “Good” or “bad” power works the same way, because people who have “bad” power see the people with “good” power as bad because they are in opposite ends of power and there is always conflict between positive and negative. Good and bad is also subjective, it is based on how it is packaged and sold.
So this man has trapped this dog inside a cage so that it can guard him, because when he feels safe he knows that his system is safe. He doesn’t even consider the ripple effect he has caused by placing that dog in that cage. In human life it affects the children and the surrounding family members as well as many generations which will follow. Such a simple act of placing a person in a system can cause poverty, unemployment, racism, inequality and many other societal problems, however we do not typically think like that but that is what social engineers “the men” do. They think about it but they don’t consider it because it might just stop them from protecting the system.
Why be the dog when you can choose to be the man? Being the man is as simple as creating a system and making sure that people in your system believe by showing them the benefits of your system. Once they believe you are powerful. Once you are powerful you are the man! Once you are the man you are the system.
…”I should stop being that dog, I rather be the man” I said to myself because I realised where the power lies. The opportunity to be in control. All it takes is a dream and following through.
