Curse of..


Curse of Knowledge



This weekend, I heard one of the most profound things I've heard in a while. I'd like to share it with you. I believe it'll add value to your life.

The issue we speak of affects more people than you know, may or may not exhibit symptoms, and isn't easily remedied. This awful condition affects teachers, students, politicians, business leaders, and maybe even your favorite pastor.

I hope not, but it's all too common.

Back to this weekend. While I had a chance to listen to many of my favorite speakers, one stands out in particular. Of all the things he said, one thing stands out. He talked about a curse of sorts. I've often seen people subject themselves to this curse, and honestly, I've been victim to this disgusting ailment myself. As I'm not perfect, I'm not afraid to tell you that. I believe honestly, at some time or another, we'll all suffer with it. The best thing we can do is shorten our duration with it. That is the purpose of this blog.

What is this said curse?

The curse of knowledge.

What do you mean Meek?

As the speaker described it, it's when a person has knowledge and becomes content with it. At this point, they no longer want to learn. We all know someone who "knows everything." There's no room to grow for the person who knows it all. We all know when you stop learning, you start dying. Unfortunately, many rapidly approach this dismal fate. They're walking around mentally dead and waiting for their body to catch up. Aimlessly going through the motions content with being average. 


But that isn't you. You're a life long learner. You're reading this for a reason. Once you close off your mind to new ideas, it begins to suffocate.  Don't suffocate. Don't live a life of quiet desperation. 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…
