When you put yourself in a position to deal with people, you will indeed haft DEAL WITH PEOPLE. And to be honest, not to belittle any man or woman, but we are so common and basic at the core.We all must eat, sleep and shit.And if you're puttin a little extra sauce on life you hav some kind of skillset or talent or athletic ability that sets you apart from the majority. Beyond that there are the "special folk" who are super-talented, skilled with extraordinary ability. But for the most part, the mass majority is full of basic, common, average individuals. Nothing special, no Midas touch and full of basic needs just like the rest of us.
And then there are THE OTHERS. The others think they are so special, complete with overtures, dogmatism and extroverted, exhibitionist, polarizing ways. They are the loud barking, ass-clappin, drug abusers who only know one way in life: more drugs.
And I'm not speaking of dope like cocaine, meth or marijuana. I'm talking about folks that don't know peace, or humility or patience. I'm speaking of people who attract and create chaos, anarchy, misunderstanding and distortion.
Sure, distraction and disruption is okay since we are tired of the old boy network and how they've mishandled this place we know as Planet Earth. And we are certainly fighting for change. But THE OTHERS...they remind me of what I don't wanna be. They are TOXIC, no matter what skin tone they arrived in, EGOTISTICAL in every sense of the word, and PUSSIES when it comes down to conscious thought and sensitivity. I'd love to write today about love, passion, contribution and harmony. But I honestly believe that every now and then you and I both need that gut punch, that reminder that life is full of assholes and pussies.
Please read this, post this and memorize this if only for your own sanity and courage:
I do not choose to be a common man,
It is my right to be uncommon … if I can,
I seek opportunity … not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen.
Humbled and dulled by having the
State look after me.
I want to take the calculated risk;
To dream and to build.
To fail and to succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole;
I prefer the challenges of life
To the guaranteed existence;
The thrill of fulfillment
To the stale calm of Utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence
Nor my dignity for a handout
I will never cower before any master
Nor bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand erect.
Proud and unafraid;
To think and act for myself,
To enjoy the benefit of my creations
And to face the world boldly and say:
This, with God’s help, I have done
All this is what it means
To be an Entrepreneur.”
