Thursday's Thoughts-Time well spent

It was once said that...the more time you spend on celebrating and praising someone else's success...the less time you'll spend working on your on success.

Many times we as young men spend to much time bragging about who we know and how well they are doing in life; yet we're failing in our own life.

Many times we as young men spend to much time admiring people we've only seen on television or heard on the radio; but won't take heed to what our love ones is telling us.

Thursday thoughts - Life is a game of 4 quaters

It was said that...."it's okay to feel good about where you are at in life but you should feel much better about where you are going in life"

Life doesn't wait for anyone. I'm learning that life is actually a game of 4 quarters when look at it.

1st qtr.: 1 - 20yrs. old
2nd qtr.:  20 - 40yrs. old
3rd qtr.: 40 - 60yrs. old
4th qtr.: 60 -80+yrs. old

In your first quarter of life you should be getting to know yourself and developing your personality and enjoy having your parents or guardian to lean on for guidance and support.

Vacation Time

Vacation's very important for a man to take his family on vacation at least once a year if not twice a year. This helps brings forth a sense of togetherness and a time to relax and enjoy one other. It also give you a chance to chat with your kids and to get to know them better. Take the time to enjoy your family....

Local R&B stations

It's terrible that some of our local R&B radio stations thinks it's ok to play songs that disrespect our queens and disrespect each other. Yet they say they are here to help our community. How!!?? When 25-35% of a song is bleep out, then it shouldn't be play on the air. We want our young men to grow up and be decent and respectful men in our community; yet they continue to pump the radio air waves with some of this garbage that they call rap & R&B music. We deserve better! ManUp R&B Station!

Real Men Wanted and Needed

Society has it's time our fathers to speak! Our young men need us now more then ever! They need our leadership, guidance and support. It's time for us to lead our young men back to their RIGHTFUL place in society, in their homes and in their communities! 

What cities name is found on every continent?



Education is very important! But education without a good work ethic is meaningless. A man can have a long list of degrees but if he doesn't have good work ethics he will my grandma used to say-an educated, broke, dummy! You should realize that just because you're unable to go to college for what ever reason; you still can be educated through work and have the determination to learn more at work.

You can be anything you want to be....THAT'S A LIE!

We've always been taught or told that we can be anything we want to be in life.... That statement is so far the truth! Yet that's what we tell our young men and then we even go as far as giving them a few examples....such as successful athletes, actors, singer/rappers and even a president. These people just didn't (want) to be successful...they strived and work hard at being successful. Success does not come easy nor is define by one diffanition. So begin working and striving towards the thing or things you'd want to be and you will be what you (strive) for to be.....
