Empower, don't enable..

I'm generous. I actually enjoy giving.

I learned a long time ago that you can't even give without receiving something, even if it's just receiving the great feeling of helping another human being. I'm not saying this to brag, there's a point here. I promise. 

What are you getting at Meek?

I wrote a blog about it, wanna read it? Here it goes..

We've all heard the age old adage "Give a man to fish and you'll feed them for a day, teach them to fish and you will feed them for a lifetime." It's a proverbial saying which suggests teaching someone how to get their own is much better than just constantly giving them everything. While I don't think this text means you shouldn't give, I think it does express a point.
  
Giving the concept or thought process is much better than repeatedly giving someone a solution to their problem or solving their problems for them. Let people solve their own problems. At the end of the day, we're all adults and are responsible for our lives.We must be problem solvers, it's part of being an adult and taking responsibility. Let people fight their own battles, learn their own skills, and overcoming their own problems. It's an empowering experience. Don't enable foolishness, you'll create a mental cripple. 

I believe at times we all need a little help, but we should only help those who want to help themselves. If someone grows accustomed to things being given to them, will they ever learn to fend for themselves?

I thought you'd agree.

What you earn, you value. 

Empower, don't enable..

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!

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
