Humility the Hard Way
Reading time: 3 – 4 minutes
I learned Humility by Fire. Meaning I grew up not knowing what to do next so I can never really put anyone down when they don’t know. When you come from nothing you have to admit to yourself that a lot of people put you on to game and it was merely luck or the grace of GOD that you made it. Now other cats have to learn humility usually by falling and I mean really falling hard. A pretty woman learns humility by someone playing her for a fool. A arrogant man learns humility by finding out no one wants to be around them. And, sometimes even a cat who should’ve known he ain’t the shit will learn it again when they get older.
I say all this to say to you in the most respectful way that you aren’t shit! I don’t mean you are a piece of shit. I mean that at no time in this world should you consider what you say, how you think and something about you is simply better than anyone else. Sure it’s going to take you some time as a lot of Suckers love to walk around the earth thinking their suit, car, shoes, purse and even underwear are a better grade than everyone else. But, in the end what you have anyone can have they just don’t happen to have it right now. Your education is something any cat who gets in gear can have. Your job is not that damn special because it’s not like you did anything but sit there and move up. Your business has already been done and you are just copying off what you see works. Shit even your personality someone you met already said you reminded them of someone from their past. The cat handing out hamburgers is no different than the jobs you had to go through to get where you are today. In essence there ain’t too much to you that should ever give you the feeling that you are head and shoulders over everyone else.
You’ll find out what makes you unique isn’t all that damn special. It’s really something you happen to do just a little bit better than someone else. My talent is that I persevere longer than most people. I didn’t have great grades but everyone assumed I was smart. I don’t think I am better looking than any other cat but my confidence is internal so it manifests differently. My business succeeded because I was in the right place at the right time. When I look back on damn near all of my success it was 90% because I was fed up with being poor. Now everyone who knows me think I got something special in my head but I don’t know exactly what that is besides piecing the game together faster than most. But, that’s because just like me researching posts to write about I have been doing recon on money since I was about 8 years old. So while it might seem like a gift its about 20 years of constantly searching that makes me seem like I know what to do in all situations.
Think about it really for a second. There is nothing you have that another person couldn’t have. The difference is you chose this road and they didn’t. The difference is you barely passed a test and they didn’t. The difference is you read a book, knew a cat, heard something on the radio, saw something on TV and barely escaped those cops… AND THEY DIDN’T! It’s not that hard to be humble when you think about how all that makes you special is what you did and what they didn’t!
