Where you from? Some people use or allow others to use where they are from to define how far they can go. Being from the ghetto, projects, wrong side of the tracks, trailer park, etc. might be your current location but it does not have to be your permanent mental residence.

Moves to Make

Start to think about where you want to go and where you want to be.  I know it’s not easy when you haven’t seen anything beyond what you know. 

  1. More than meets the eye: Know that there is more to life than what you or I have seen for ourselves
  2. Mental shift: know that what we and our crew take as “the truth” is only “a truth,” and not the overall definitive truth.  Trust that different situations lead to different truths. 
  3. Build a vision board: This won’t be the last time I mention this to you but get a few magazines or visits sites on line and start to create a vision board for things you want in your life and places you want to go.  Find those sites and magazines that “people like you,” are not supposed to dream about and use them as a reference point.  Look at magazines like Black Enterprise, The Robb Report, a Travel magazine for starters.
