Society of Haters..appreciate someones perfection.

We are such haters in this modern culture. Our culture is waiting to see failure, doom and destruction at any given moment, we even help it along if there is little cost to us, just read Youtube.com comments. As Cee-lo sang, “Ain’t that some Shit.”

It seems few in todays society few of us can truly appreciate genius and moments of perfection in other individuals, we down play spectacular moments portrayed by others, when we wish we could bask in their glory. This is most likely the reason for Reality TV’s popularity. We can judge/haterate without personal stake or cost. We, in particular most americans are in constant love/hate competitive relationships with the world at large. I see it in families, marriages and even my own life. I am no saint but there is one thing people who know me can say, as much as I am an attention whore, I love to see other people shine. It makes my heart smile when someone is exceptional. Exceptional people make me question my ability and test myself to see if I can elevate my being.

Each person present in the time space continuum has a range of specific and unique talents, yet we seek notoriety for talents of mass public attention. When we should really be working to be our own worst judge. Life is not high school, and there is no real “Cool Kids table” for adults, but that is our reptilian brain comfort zone. Our human status is always seeking the approval outside of our physical bodies. To a degree I can understand that view if it is regarded as a “personal second opinion”, but typically its not the case. Lets all work on the ability to appreciate those people with the ability to exploit their own unique talent for the betterment of themselves and others, in other words. Be thankful for the talent of others to inspire your soul.

Just think about how many people were inspired by the talent of Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, BIll Gates and a host of others.

Be appreciators not haters.

Not Creepy but Someone is watching you.

There is some who is observing what you do. Don’t get creeped out, but it is a truth. Ninety percent of the time we are partially aware of our surroundings. Like I said don’t be creeped out. In this day and age we put so much information about our personal lives up for grabs and then we freak when someone who is not on your radar give you a clue they are observing your life.

From 2010-07-20

This is a Creepy Picture, I took in Milwaukee!

That is not the point of my topic. The brainwashing continues to evolve in our society that things have to have a negative spin.

I am referring to admiration. There is a wonderful feeling to get confirmation about how you live your life has impacted another person as an example of how to live. I was an only child, therefore I really did not have a model to live by i.e older brother, sister, or cousin. Much of my early childhood gave me few examples I though were worth wild, so I turned to the thing in the world I felt were good and just.

I grew up in Detroit during the heyday of the Young Boys incorporated and the arrival of Crack cocaine.  I was an only child with a strong presence from my mother, I knew caution was my friend… actually extreme caution was my friend. I chose to follow the path of the narrow, since the path that was broad had too much risk.

I have followed this philosophy to this day. There were a few times in my life when I slipped and followed, but it turned out to be a lesson to fortify a reason to stay in my own lane of life., and just do  ME.

The reason I started to write this post started from a memory that put a smile on my face. There was a kid who I though had the world by a string when i lived in Detroit proper as a teenager. He was a musician, the girls loved him and he made friends easily. Some 20 years later, we met again and spent some time together over several months. ‘

I realized our lives had taken drastically different paths. His path led him to the penitentiary, while I had built a family and a career. Other aspect of our early child/teen years came to light as well. One thing that he informed me of was how for the longest time admired the way I carried myself and my life when we were young. Blew my socks off to hear that, because this guy is and was talented and displayed great confidence. I kind of looked up to this guy because during our teen years he had so much confidence, was very respectful, and had freedoms other could not handle.
To find out that He was looking up to me was a shocker. During our mid teens my path changed and we began did not see each other much.

Example # 2

I was a guitar player for a local church when I was 29 years old. During a revival the church brought in a young keyboard player and drummer from a different congregation.  They were AWESOME musicians.  I played guitar to fill in the sound and the keyboard player and I hit it off . I found out this guy was only 19 years old, but carried himself  like a man many years older.  He was marred with a small daughter, and played for his fathers church.  As time passed and we played more gospel functions together, I asked if his family would like to have diner with my family, I would cook.  We had a nice time., and we continued our friendship for a few more years. Then paths separate me from people again. The temporary factor set in.

Years later I had an inkling to visit the church where the young keyboard player father was pastor. Things had changed, II walked into the church, took a seat. Watched as my old friend played the organ with such grace and felt good that he was doing well. Just as he noticed me , he stopped playing, the music stopped and he walked over  hugged me, and introduced me to the entire congregation. Then he proclaimed this is Brother Emmitt. He changed my life,  then he thanked GOD and went back to the keyboard and began playing  for the rest of the service. (wait,WHAT!)

After the service he informed me that I gave him direction because of how I lived, and until that point he had not seen a young black man who had his own house, took care of his family and lives a decent life without being shady.  He told me that I let him know the dream was possible. GOD works in mysterious way.

My ramblings in this post are this, you don’t know who is watching and admiring what you do and who you are. Yes you are doing all the right things but the wrong things may seem easier. There is someone who loves you for who you are and what you can become . Live that life to inspire others to reach their potential, and your happiness will fill with abundance

Love you All

Be Bless and Happy

Appreciation…it’s the little thing that count.

WOW! Every day I wake up with a joy in my heart and say thank you for letting my feet hit the floor, my vision, and every little item of comfort i get to experience. Then as I am smiling throughout my day I can’t help but notice the amount of people who don’t (at least outwardly) seem to give a dam about how good they have it.

We as Americans and people of most progressive countries have it made and we don’t even know it. Think back to how humans live 100 years ago. The level of comfort was dismal compared to todays standards. Here is a list of daily items we take for granted.

1.) Heat…we don’t have to chop wood
2.) Food…we don’t have to hunt daily
3.) Water we don’t have to go to the well then boil our water
4.) Transportation….Just imagine if you had to ride a horse 30 miles every day.
5.) Hygiene….People use to die because of disease was so rampant from poor hygiene
6.) Education..Kid use to have to work the fields.
7.) Electricity…When the sun went down so did you.
8.) Information..Only select few were allowed to gain knowledge.
9.) Freedom…There was a time when you could be persecuted for any little difference. There was once a time when we could not be with the people we love, because our spouse was chosen for us.
10.) Comfort..I have found the poorest people in industrial nations have it easier (Greatly) than people in third world nations.

Appreciate what little you have to be thankful for, cause there is someone who wishes they were in your situation. If you have issue with depression, heartbreak, or some similar mental/emotional setback, remind yourself the truth about life. All of this is temporary, particularly when times seem rough. So tie a knot in the rope of your life and keep hanging till it gets better.

Be Full of joy and Blessed. Emmitt

No Worry, No Cry. It works out over time.

Download or listen: How to be Happy podcast: (Things always work out for the best)

We spend a great deal of time worrying about our current situation, than maybe enjoying the situation. For some people it is hard to see the forest because those dam trees are blocking their vision. 99% of our life is temporary, having said that about time, why waist it concentrating on thing that are the filler in our daily lives.

Things Just Work out, if you let them.

Remember that test it was so important for you to pass in high school, nope you don’t. Remember that bill that you didn’t have enough money to pay for several months ago, nope.

Do you remember what you were so worried about…?:

  • 10 years ago
  • 5 years ago
  • 2 years ago
  • 1 year ago
  • 6 month ago
  • 3 month ago
  • 15 days ago
  • 1 week ago

Seriously, chose the good things to look forward to. I know it requires a retraining of your entire outlook, but it is worth it. Most of this we call life is temporary, 99.9 percent of it is temporary, so why worry about thing that are bound to change anyway.

 

Live well, I love you all

Where does Self Esteem come forward from?

Confidence, Self Esteem, and happiness are all a part of self love.  It is one of those funny question as where does it come from, or how do you obtain it. The answer is simple. Self esteem comes from living and accomplishment. It is my belief we all start out with a zero point on the self esteem ladder. Some points we go positive some point we go negative. If there are too many factors (people) detracting from your self esteem, then Low Self esteem is the outcome.

Your experience is just that, YOURS. If you use things out of your control as a barometer for your existence them you will have a tough go at it. This is why we see superstars who are adored by the public with really messed up lives. They need the approval of other as a measure of their worth. The alternative are those Media stars who perform their acts as a matter of an expression of THEIR Individual passion.

Passionate, Confidence, and Self esteem…Be There Now

Is it real

As humans we are the high vibrational creatures. Just because we are high in vibration does not mean low vibration will not have an effect on us. Constantly we are able to disregard positive things around us because of our ego, and self esteem issues.

We all have a powerful tool that is our brain. Sometimes we can illogically think our way away from prosperity and abundance because we don’t have all the fact. We can rationalize detrimental thing and situation just by the way we process information.

We can think ourselves into believing no one cares for us, our jobs are in jeopardy, our spouse is seeing someone else. Without having and tangible information to prove anything. Begin by living by the facts of what you can prove. I know it can be really difficult sometime, but feeling can be a strong influence. Sometimes your feeling are trying to tell you something but we read the feeling wrong. This is a part of the growth process. We were not given a manual how to navigate this life,so its on the job training. Take the time to meditate on the positive things and push your EGO aside so the truth will manifest.

Love you all

Live Happy be Healthy

Time fools us all. Time moves so slowly to the point we barely notice changes around us. 1 minute,1 day, 1 week,1 month 1 year. There are a great many changes occurring every moment. The most subtly change is body composition.  If any person gains 1.5 pounds of fat from the age of 22 to 42 that is 30 extra pounds at the end of that period. The 1.5 pound number is a general average for the united states, for some it can be 2~3 pounds a year at any time. Many of us in this modern society don’t exert as much energy as generation prior due to technology. I know this rang true for me.

I started a job where I sat at a desk and talked on the phone for 6+ hours a day. the most walking I did was from my house to my garage to get into my car. Within three months I gained 8 pounds. If that weight gain would have been allowed to progress. There could have been a world of health problems down the road.

I know with Television shows such as The Biggest Loser people are starting to be more conscious about their weight health.

I love the people of this planet and care how you experience this life. It is difficult to do so if you are diabetic,or have heart problems due to weight. I can broach the subject, but you have to do the work. Start slow with moderate exercise to be healthier. Cause I care about you.

THE Goal:Giving a Million to those in need!

I recently attended my first  Motor City Connect event in downtown Detroit at the Penobscot building. I had no idea the profound effect this event would have on my psyche.

The event was not particularly large in attendance, but the small number of people who were there made up for that hands down.  If I recall correctly,  about ten individuals where present.

I bet you want to know what was so moving about this particular Motor City Connect function? Well here is is. I met one of the founders of Operation Kid Equip (OKE), Manachem Kniespek.

The protocol for the this function was to introduce your self and your business, then state and action you are looking to solve. Because it is a social network, an individual could say he/she is looking to meet with an owner of a particular business, or searching for someone who requires a certain service, for their action.

After the introductions the general conversation began and somehow we began to discuss the needs of children in the Metro-Detroit area.  Manachem had great information about his company and the service they provide. As the conversation progressed I learned how deeply the children of Metro-Detroit are being affected by the economic shift we are experiencing currently.  For some reason, when economic issues are discussed in the media, we don’t really hear about the effects job loss have directly on children. This event put a face and age on the perspective. All the information I received that day cause my heart to swell.  I could not get out my mind the challenges Non-Profit and charities face when the economy take a turn for the worse.

I could not get out of my head so many people (children and families) were in dire need right now. It weight heavy on my mind for the last two weeks. I just kept thinking, how can I help? With so many charities to choose from, how do you choose?

I thought about it and thought about it, nothing viable came to me. Then I prayed on it. What do I have to offer? BAAM, like a blot of lighting it came to me.

I was so excited from the epiphany I couldn’t stop moving, I was that energized, and ready to go. Here is the plan, give away 50% of the profit from my book sales. Make it a mission to sell my inspiration book so that I may give to those who need.

OMG! Did you Listen to what you just said!

I cannot believe the things people say about themselves and towards them self. People are so demeaning, , not toward other people but about who and what they are subconsciously. Here are just a few things I have heard people say when referring to themselves:

  • I am So F%#King Stupid.
  • I always mess stuff up.
  • Sorry that is just the way I am.
  • I can’t loose this weight, I’m just fat.
  • Why would anyone want to be with me.
  • Sorry,sorry, sorry.
  • I CANT DO THAT!

The list goes to infinity.

OMG! It is depressing  so many people have such a low value placed upon their person. I am not taking about depressed people either. I am referring to the average everyday individual. These are people that you know too. For Instance; the worker at Boston Market, Guy sitting next to me at the bar during a dart tournament, Woman I was speaking with about DJing her wedding,  or some person asking me how to work the eliptical machine at the gym.
These are average everyday functional people. It does not end there everyone does it and if you do it enough those statments become truth.

Exercise: On Going

In the future listen to the statements that come out of your mouth. Then analyze them by asking yourself if it was a positive or negative affirmation.

Your best friend in your life is you. Treat yourself that way.
