A lot of people wonder why I speak up or talk the way I want to in most situations. They think it has to do with me growing up in Compton. They think it has to do with my degrees that I attained. They even think it’s because of the money I have. But, they all are wrong. The main reason behind my overall attitude of take it or leave it is because I made ME, they didn’t make me.
The only people I owe in this life have my same last name and everyone outside of that is a mawfvcking lie. I’m the only one who pushed myself to this point. I’m the one who started the business. I’m the one who took the chances. I’m the one who sacrificed and slept on floors. I’m the one who drove across country. I’m the one who bet it all and said fvck it. I didn’t get any scholarships, no handouts, no sponsorship no cosigns as it was all me determination, grit and grind. I don’t look back and worry about some motherfvcker rising up from my past that can say I owe him. In fact you’ll probably find more people who will say he never asked for help from anyone. White Jesus didn’t inspire me nor was his lost preachers the reason for me. I’m the one who stayed up and continues to stay up to create what I think is a good business or a good idea. I’m the guy who wrote that book there were no ghostwriters.
So since I know and will always know that I don’t need anyone to accomplish my goals I can never owe anyone. Not nare mawfvkcer will ever be able to take one cinder block of my empire and put their name on it. No networking event, no official introduction, no special bending of the rules not even a dollar loaned to me in my past was the catalyst that made me. I took what I had and built myself with damn near no help and no guidance. I learned all that I share on the R&G by constantly looking for a way to make a way not looking for a mawfvcker to show me the way nor pave the way. I’m the one who corrected myself, refined myself, taught myself and finally decided to do for self.
Plenty of people think I’m cocky, arrogant, not humble nor appreciative. But, when I look back the only thing I appreciate is myself for my determination and willingness. This is the reason why I speak the way I do or do the things I do. Sure GOD played a part but he was the silent partner as there were plenty of years where I only called on myself. I only found GOD by looking back and realizing something was looking out for me because there were plenty of times I prevailed when I should’ve failed.
So while many people will confuse how I say and what I say for arrogance I know it actually comes from living through it and building through it and what you see is my confidence. A Man is judged by what he went through not what he says he is willing to do. Everyone wants to be rich but how many will actually go and get it! And, I still have a long way to go but I’m CONFIDENT I’ll make myself wealthy too.
