You owe you.

Many of you are taking anything, cos’ you dont know what you want. 

I don’t want nothing from you but for you to know what you want. 

What do you want in your marriage? What do you want in your son and daughter? What do you want for your health? What do you want financially? How much money do you want to make a year? What do you want to drive? How do you want to live?

And then once you find out what you want, spend the rest of your natural life waking up and going after it.

Stop just waking up like an accident. What do you want? 

The reason I speak with so much passion is because I’m talking about my life. This is not something that I read. 

I ate out of trash cans. I had no business eating out of trash cans. I lived in abandoned buildings. I had no business living in abandoned buildings.

My Daddy wasn’t in my life. My Mama was a teenage mother. That was no excuse for not living up to my potential. No excuse.

I didn’t get a new Daddy. I didn’t get a new Mama. I changed. 

I stopped being a victim. I stopped waiting for good things to happen to me and I started to grind. I started to fight. I got to work. I got to learning. Every day I did everything in my power to become a victor. Not a victim. 

I became a winner. 

Winners win. Losers lose. I can’t explain it any better than that. 

And if you create a culture of losing. If you keep being a victim. If you keep letting losing happen to you. If you keep letting people do you and treat you any kind of way, it’s gonna become a culture.

You better stop making excuses and find a way to win. You better wake up and grind. 

I didn’t get here making excuses. And nobody can stop me.

When you become a winner, people start seeing you with winners. You get from being a loser with low self esteem, doubt and fear to finding your way to the other side. 

It’s sweeter on this side. 

Stop making excuses. Stop pointing fingers at people and start pointing fingers at yourself. 

What did YOU not do. What have YOU not done. And why ain’t YOU doing it?
