“everyday, a star is born”
Yo it’s me!! I’m back at it like Brett Favre LOL. If you have been wondering, I have been GREAT! I had a great summer. I was back in NY working at a youth residential camp. I had a different position from last summer as I was an Assistant Community Coordinator. This summer I continued to learn more about myself, as I was challenged in many different ways. Of course the kids had a great impact on me as I hope I did on them. ..Oh yeah, I lost the no shaving bet over the summer. Des! I got your dinner bruh..stop crying lol ..you always busy (cough, cough)
WOW! I can’t believe this is my last year of undergrad...and who would have ever thought I would be applying to Graduate School. Man life is crazy…
If you are new at my spot, this is not going to be your typical blog site. I’m not going to sit here and talk about celebrities, music and fashion. Well I take that back, the only fashion I will talk about is the Nerdy Brand. A couple of the homies are starting a brand and they have my support 100%. Make sure you check them out at http://www.be-nerdy.com/. But other than them, there are many other blogs and sites that you can get all that other information from. The focus of my blog is for personal growth, learning how to be intellectually greedy, quotes to get you thinking, and most of all, giving you the confidence and self-belief that you can reach any of the dream you work for. Like Big Sean says, you’re not going to reach your dreams by drinking Nyquil and being in pajamas.. But it’s going to take hard work, determination, some sleepless nights and definitely FAITH and COURAGE! I’m speaking to you still in search of my dreams…and I dream BIG! But I know I will get there, and I know you can too. So check back with me often and get some encouragement, motivation or for a study break! Leave comments…negative or positive, you might not know who you will touch…
The last thing I’m going to leave you with today is…
“What you keep to yourself you lose, what you give away, you will keep forever” – Axel Martin
I just came back from working with some kids in middle school. Today we were talking about being yourself and not being a follower. A lot of time youth just want to fit in and not really do what they want…they just want to be seen as cool. I had to tell them, people are like that at all ages. It’s much easier to be a follower than to be a leader. I think people are scared of stepping out and being a leader. When you are a leader you have to take responsibility for your actions, decisions and statements that you make. When you follow you don’t have to take responsibilities for these things. Thurgood Marshall said…”It takes no courage to get in the back of a crowd and throw a rock.”
Let’s make leadership a LiFEstyle!
First I want to say that I'm a person that does not use profanity often, so when I used it in my writing that means I want a strong emphasis on it. Also, I feel like I was dry so I'm going to work on my delivery next time. Maybe try to memorize it..that may help
Lastly, when I was little I had a really bad stuttering problem. In class I would get in trouble because I wouldn't read out loud because kids would laugh at. Well, there is no better way to get better than practice. That’s why I read every day…every day!!!
Well, hope you enjoy...
You may recognize Sir Winston Churchill as one as the dominate leaders during World War II or because he won a Nobel Prize for his writing. Churchill states that “all men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes.” All men make mistakes!! MAN…I can definitely testify to that. I think the way I do because of the mistakes I have mad. That’s what has shaped me into the man that I am today…or should I say the man I hope I am. This game of life is no joke; unlike my Nintendo…I can’t hit the reset button, lol. But there is one thing I have learned, you can’t be scared to make mistake. You can’t live this life as if you are walking on egg shells. I’m taking this thing head on with no helmet. Full speed…not stopping for anyone. God has a plan for me and I refuse to not to take it!!! …I’m learning to be a wise man
