“It” is Already In You…So Let’s MOVE…

(sing it)

That he didn’t, didn’t already have…”

Vision and Resolve

How many times have you thought to yourself, “well if I could do anything I would….”  Stop thinking, and start planning….and more importantly, start DOING. Why not you? Why not now?

Jay-Z Motivation – “So Ambitious”

PG excerpts from *Jay-Z – “So Ambitious”

This a special dedication,
I wanna thank you for the fuel,
No really thank you,

I felt so inspired by what my teacher said,
Said I’d either be dead or be a reefer head,
Now sure if thats how adults should speak ta kids,
Especially when the only thing I did was speak in class,
I teach his ass,

Motivation for me was them telling me what I could not be,
Oh well,
I’m so ambitious,
Hey im on a mission
No matter what the conditions,
Forget the personal issues
When you been what I been through,
Hey if you believe it,
Then you could conceive it.

I had to lace up my boots even harder,
Father is too far away to father,
Further-more of the kids either smoke reefer,
Or either move white, theres few writers in my cipher,
So they made lighter, my type a dreams seem dumb
They said wise up, how many guys a you see making it from here,
The world don’t like us, is that not clear, alright,
But I’m different, I can’t base what I’m gonna be off a what everybody isn’t,
They don’t listen, just whispering behind my back,
No vision, lack of ambition,
So wack!

I went from pauper to the President,
Every deal I ever made set precedent,
(People) thought I’d fall without old buddy,
Oh buddy, what I do is make more money,
Dear Teacher, your probably somewhere near a speaker,
I’m balling outta control, can you hear my sneakers?”

Turning Point Motivation – What Will Your Grandchildren Say…

“This may be the turning point your grandchildren will tell stories about years from now: the time you leap over the abyss to the other side of the Great Divide and begin your life in earnest.  On the other hand, this moment of truth may end up being nothing more than brief awakening when you glimpse what’s possible on the other side of the Great Divide, but then tell yourself, “Nah, that’s waayyy too far to jump.”  In that case, your grandchildren will have to be content talking about what delicious cookies you used to bake or what your favorite sports team was.  It will all depend on how brave you’ll be.” 
-Rob Brezsny

Motivational Music Lyrics – Lupe Fiasco – No Fear, Be You

“I think that all the silence, is worse than all violence
Fear is such a weak emotion, that’s why I despise it
We’re scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
So scared of what you think of me, I’m scared of even telling you
Sometimes I’m like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
I’m locked inside a cell in me, I know that there’s a jail in you
Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath inhale a few
My screams is finally gettin free, my thoughts is finally yellin through”
-Lupe Fiasco – (Words I never Said)
