I understand that we’re all on the grind and we’re all trying to “do our own thing”. But just remember that you have a community that will support you as long as you give back to them. It really is “just us” when it comes to creating change in your community, starting your own business, or finding a career you’re passionate about. So don’t forget about the people who surround you, because they’ll probably be the ones who help you get to where you want to be.

Create something for you and your community. It doesn’t matter how small you start off, as long as you’re doing it. We all have passions, why not pursue them? Always keep things fresh. Start something of your own. Be the example, get on a Good One.
Get your Mind and Body right on your way to success. The two complement each other, they work together. It’s like if one part of you isn’t working right, the other part won’t work right either. It’s take time and effort to develop both. But it’s all good, the journey is the destination.

No one can take away the progress that you’ve made. No matter how many times you’ve failed or how many mistakes you’ve made. It doesn’t matter. All that matters is where you’re at and where you’re going. Would you rather take action or go through the pain of another failure? We all have setbacks. But it’s the people that push through those setbacks that achieve the greatest things in life. You must never, ever, quit. So stay on your grind, Get On One.
You’re on the cusps of success. Your mind starts to make connections. Ideas start to flow. Inspiration comes from the smallest of experiences. You can just feel it. The world is coming to you, and everything in it. It’s like you’re walking to the starting line of a race. And all those years of struggle, sacrifice, and preparation are about to explode into a sprint when you hear that gun go off. This ain’t a sprint though, it’s a marathon. The marathon of Life. Are you ready? Are you ready for success? Keep on doing that hard work. Keep on perfecting those skills. Keep on associating with the right people. And keep on pursuing your dreams and passions. It’s there for you, you’ve just got to take it.
“Everyday I wake up to the sound of waves crashing
Make moves, it’s time to take action
More bread for the basket
No sleep, I do that when I’m in a casket
No patience, I take no breaks and no vacations
I can’t wait!”
