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..

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…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
