Shoot the damn ball!

Shoot the damn ball!



I love to shoot basketball for recreation. Yea, your boy can hoop a little ( just a little). I honestly don't care who I play with, or what type of team I'm on (within reason). I just like to play. It's pretty good cardio and there are always some good laughs. As competitive as I am, I don't even care about losing "pick up ball."

If there is one thing about "pick up ball" that cooks my grits, it's playing with someone who constantly hesitates shooting the ball! Shoot it! SOOOOO WHATTT if you miss it! If it's a good shot, TAKE IT! If you're open, TAKE IT! I'm never mad at a someone taking a GOOD shot. "Air ball" it! who cares? Just take the shot!

and he's back..

What do they do though? They sit there wallowing in their indecision and wait for the defender to come and block, steal, and/or defend their shot. Make a decision and go for it! You're going to make some shots, and you're going to miss some shots. That's the summary of every basketball player's career.

We've all seen this before. If not on the court, in life. People have a chance, and wallow in their indecision. The "I'm not sure" mentality makes me want to stomp on baby chickens!!! Grow some damn balls and make a decision! Ever heard the expression "Crap or get off of the pot?"

Fact is, some want to make it, and some don't. Figure out which side you're on and move forward. If you do want to make it, GO FOR IT! Whatever it is, go for it! Do it with all your might! A half assed try leads to a whole ass failure.

Let's get to work..

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry"

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry" 
Don't let anybody guilt you into a miserable marriage! 
The majority of married people that you know are miserable because they settled to societal pressures .....even if they won't admit it. 
Some folks out here getting married to say you're married.....but to each his own....as for me and my house if we can't be peaceful, loyal, & ain't eem trying to shoot at the same baskets & pay the same taxes I gotta keep it moving!
This is not to say marriage can't work. I absolutely believe it can, but with the right connection, reasons, and plan! But what do I know? I'm just a fat kid that eats too many crabcakes

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…
