Day#139: Why Am I Suffering?

Ambassador’s Note: The next few days will focus on T.I. (just a heads up).  I’m currently  in California for the next couple of days on my leadership retreat until Monday.  Please forgive any delays in getting back to any comments ya send me.  Know that I’m Running the Point and I hope you are doing the same.  I’m out here trying to connect with West Coast Schools.  We dropped in on Stanford, Santa Clara University and San Jose State.  Run the Point; from where you are, with what you have!

Hip Hop Affirmation of the Day#139

“EVEN THE GREATEST GOTTA SUFFER SOMETIME” ~T.I. (No Matter What)

Affirmation of the Day: I learn a lesson in every situation

Things don’t always go the way that I expect them to, but I find a way to learn something from the situation.  On Sunday I worked and put my affirmation in place to get to Stanford with my books.  I was part of an event called Blackfest 2010.  I came with my mind set on selling the 50 books I traveled with.  Let’s just say I sold much less than I expected.  At some point I had to make an adjustment as I looked at the environment and noticed that the focus of the participants in this event was not going to be on buying a book (even mine).  They were focused on the entertainment to come (Wale), water (it was a hot day) and food (they were there for a couple of hours).  I decided to focus on keeping it lite and getting the name out about hip hop affirmations.com .  I had stickers made up and I gave out over 200 of them.  I also connected with some very positive people that I look forward to following-up with and got several of my questionnaires filled out.

So when life gives you lemons, don’t just make lemonade, make lemonade, lemon pie and use the peel for zest!
Question of the Day: What has your struggle taught you?
Action of the Day: Today, don’t get discouraged.  Tell yourself that you have to get something out of every situation.
