Spotify will drop some gems behind-the-scenes every now and then.  I can appreciate the discover playlists as well as the related artist searches I do any time I find an artist I really enjoy - because that is how you find artists like Chaz French.  French's sound/style is not like anything I have listened to in recent months, so his music is a breath of fresh air to me from the younger generation of rappers.

Some of my favorites from the 'True Colors' album - in no particular order - ' Way Out ' - ' Amerikkka ' - ' Hol' Up ' - ' Off Top ' - ' Young World ' !

Words to Live by ... 7.4%

A friend of mine sent these to me and I feel it is only right that I share them with you ...

... I try to read this list back to myself each day.

1. You attract what you fear, feel, and think.

2. We're all born superstars, you just have to pull it out of yourself.

3. Visualize clearly, precisely, and frequently and it will manifest itself into reality.

4. Visualization works if you try hard.

5. Decide what will be, who you will be, and how you are going to do it.

6. As you think, so shall you become.

7. Don't allow your thoughts to be on anything you don't want.

8. Like attracts like.

9. If you see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand.

10. Laugh every chance you get.

It's Difficult ... 7.3%

You know the saying ... 

" If you want anything bad enough, then you will simply just have to put in the work! "

For anyone or anything to be great, you must put in that extra time and effort, a near-perfect mold takes time ... but not all of us are readily built for that though.

Some are often better at self-development than others.  Others may need that extra push - motivation from those that surround them (family, friends, peers) or a life event to take place that permanently alters his or her mindset.  This alteration creates an awakening - you begin to fully engage or " get in gear " for what it is you are trying to accomplish.

So, what should you do for a kickstart?

1. Make to-do lists daily.
2. Always be mindful of who/what occupies your time.
3. Surround yourself with positive people.
4. Rid your mind of negative thoughts about yourself or any past failures.
5. Continue to speak your goals into existence as you take the steps to accomplish them.
6. Understand that success/greatness is a process.
7. Be sure to uplift others along your journey.
8. Last, but certainly not least ... love yourself, forever and always.

Now, I know there are many other steps you could take, but these are just my suggestions if you do not have the slightest idea of where to start.

Much love to YOU - keep striving!

SHIPS : 108

Children vs. Marriage

A few questions ...

Why do we see children before marriage more in our generation?
Do we feel that marriage is less likely to validate a relationship?
Do we not see the same value in marriage as previous generations?

Check out the video below and leave your thoughts in the comment section!
