As you progress in life you’ll see that some people have banned together to lock out other folks. This might be a bunch of realtors who control a certain area of the city. This might be a race of people who control beauty supplies. This might be a fraternity or a sorority that dominate the teaching profession. They only have their power because the people under them beg to get in to their click. But, they really don’t have any power because they are in charge of either the government disbursing something or no one has come to town with a different experience. When you face a situation like this you have to remain independent of all of them and build despite them. Only to the locals do they think they are powerful but if you look around you’ll see everyone else who is not on their team seems to get things done despite them.
I face gatekeepers all the time but when it comes to most of them they just have a damn job. In my business I sometimes run into officers who are used to punking everyone and forcing people to deal with their attitude. But, I know and have said to them who is going to fire me over the phone. They stop and I tell them if you want a war let’s go to war but you have a job and I run a business so again who will fire me. Sometimes they get caught up in the place they have on the plantation and you have to check them. In another situation you run into people who are colluding behind the scenes to lock a certain area down. But, the way you beat them is to go and get the license they have so you can deal directly with the government. Now if you listen to the Suckers who live there they’ll mention that you should pay them off or that’s the way it works around here.
But, again look around. Does the cat who is Pakistani worry about greasing the hand of some local cat or does he set up shop. What about the chinese cats do you think they go to the mayors office before building their empire? Nahhh they remain independent of all the shit that is going on in that city and just open up shop. I learned this lesson from watching all the other groups who conduct business in a city. I have been lucky to be around those cats in my business and they’ll make a million bucks right under you fvcking nose and go back to their neighborhood and sit down. They never joined any groups or tried to fit in and they never even commented on what the fvck was going on. While the suckers were fighting for crumbs they were building bakeries.
In every city at every big event there are usually three kinds of people. So using Vegas for an example there’s the cats with no money parking lot pimping, there’s the wannabe high rollers who have enough money for tonight and there’s the cats who go to see the shows and really stay in the presidential suite. Most Suckers only see the bottom two and think that’s life. But, the cats who are independent of all the Sucker shit enjoy another kind of life. In essence they are not part of the hoopla that is going on and they get to enjoy life and all the amenities Sucker free.
If you want to be part of something you’ll have to abide by the rules of the cats who run that game. If you want to build something of your own you have to remain independent of all the Sucker shit and people who claim to have power. Remember this whenever you feel trapped in your business as its probably the result of you being part of anothers mans game. Did the Chinese, Pakistani, Korean cat go through the same gatekeepers you did? You can learn a lot from the groups that can never be part of the masses as they show you the way to remain independent and build!
