When the student is ready...

I try to spend as much time as possible with those I consider mentors. I consider mentorship one of the most beneficial activities I can do to ensure my success. Mastermind groups are the real deal, if you don't know what that is, find out....NOW! 

However, I was rapping with one of my mentors yesterday & he said something that stuck with me. Some of the simplest stuff is so profound sometimes. Often times, a simple dose of truth is all you need. 


At the end of one of his stories, he said "I'll teach anyone anything they want to know.The rest of that shit makes you mentally tired"


Funny, I've always heard "When the student is ready, the teacher appears" but it never made more sense than it does now. Especially since I noticed that's exactly how I felt! I was mentally tired. After the realization, thoughts spiraled. Deep down, this is always something I knew but sometimes we all need a reminder.


I believe that God uses people, & yesterday I think he used my mentor to give me a message. Had I not been a good student, I might have missed this message. I hope you're ready...

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

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!
