Liking what you do

What it do,

I remember about 2 years ago at a job that I was working in college. I was having a conversation with my supervisor. He was telling me how he and his friends rap and how they have a mixtape on iTunes at the time. I was very interested in listening to it. So he let me hear it. I was blown away I gave him his props. I let him know that his flow was good, but when you yourself don’t know how to rap anyone who can is better. He was talking to me about his life and particular thoughts that he had swirling around in his mind. So, I looked at him and said bro, that is something that you should put in your raps. I’m sure that alot of young guys that have faced a similar situation as yourself would love to hear someone that can relate. He looked at me and said naw, naw man. Put his head down and said nobody wants to hear that.

Without even thinking I said it doesn’t matter what anyone wants to hear, don’t you want to hear it? He put his head down and eyes began to sweep the floor as if what was said had a affect on him.

You know success is measured by money, fame and fortune. So much emphasis is placed on where you see yourself 5,10 years from now. Also what is your a, b, c, d, e, f, g plan and what are you currently invested in that will perpel you to succeed. As people we rarely take the time to step back and see that success is based on liking ourselves. Is there anything about you that is of value and is cherished that you have? It does not have to be big or spectacular. It can be small, but is it something you cherish and value about you. Do you like what you do? Being able to cultivate what you do naturally, effortlessly everyday and turn it into a ssuccess.Do you like how you do it? It should not matter to you if people like or dislike. What matters is do you like it.

Based on your life how do you view success?

FOM

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
