SELF-MOTIVATION: An Audio Session w/ a Good Friend of Mine “Going In” About What Drives Us…
Here’s a continuation of the discussion from last Tuesday’s post You’re Unique, So the First Thing You Have to Do Is ACCEPT THAT YOU WON’T BE ACCEPTED. This time however, it’s an actual audio clip of the raw discussion. Check it out:

We then progressed into a discussion about (so-called) hip-hop culture and the media as a whole – how the entertainment industry serves to distract us from following our life’s purpose and fulfilling our potential. (I advise him to go on a television fast…something I’ll be going in depth about later on the blog).

This is a difficult challenge to go through, but when you zoom out and take a look at it from a higher perspective, it’s also one of the most very interesting and enlightening experiences you could ever have.
“As I’m progressing, it’s like I’m battling myself…how much do I want to
change and not change? How much do I want to lose and not lose???
