Honor & Discipline...Peace! Where I am at in my life today is predicated on where I was at yesterday. I measure myself against myself. When Drake raps "We started from the bottom now we here," I can feel that line down to the atomic level in me.
I am not where I want to be yet, but I am better off than where I was 3 1/2 years ago trapped on a few acres of land. I can remember 24 years ago sitting in a discussion for a half-of-million deal for an indie music company. These extreme recollections allow me to understand the ebb & flow of life. As long as I got breath, potential, and willpower to execute; circumstances has no choice but to turn in my favor.
A few situations have shown me when other people got the better hand to lend a hand, they turned their backs. They lost a powerful ally in the process. What lesser men fear is the potential that I have to rival them. But I am no rival I am an atmosphere creator. What’s naturally mines will be mines.
I did 19 ½ years chained up like a mythical dragon, harden my spirit and let the flame in my belly stay lit. I knew a time will come when I would roar again. I persevered in the worst. I don’t let a lack of funds or fleeing opportunities discourage me. I take inventory or what resources, abilities I do have and make do. This is what lesser men fear. What will he do when his resources are on par or superior than ours?
But the dragon is loose now and time is best author.
