Here’s to the Crazy
It’s more dreaded than your routine dentist appointment, and more feared than getting pulled over by the cops. More anti-climatic than Spiderman 3, and about as disappointing as a handsome man with a small penis; it’s Monday. For the love of God, it’s Monday. And while most of you have hit the snooze button twice, or are strategically thinking of ways to get hit by a car yet not get hurt so you have an excuse to call in, there are some who have been up since the crack of dawn, already ran three miles, ate breakfast, and built an orphanage out of an abandoned parking lot. These are the few, the brave, and the admired who actually LOVE THEIR JOB.
These are the people I want to be. Soon enough my dears, soon enough.
But for those of you still trying to find a way, still scared or unsure. For those of you still making excuses, or still haven’t reached your boiling point. For the discouraged, and the cynical, this one’s for you. A collection of motivational media that make be BELIEVE, and my go-to’s for when I’m feeling anything less than inspired. I hope they light a fire inside of you as well.
Read after the jump. Unless you’re already making six figures, and are your own boss, I promise you won’t regret it. You’re welcome.

“I am no engineer, no perfect student, and far from a genius, but if there’s anything Steve Jobs taught me it’s that none of that matters. I can think some huge thoughts. And I’ll work harder than you to make them happen. I hope you’re saying the same thing.”
All the videos I found on Sylvester Stallone’s story as told my Tony Robbins had their embedding links disabled (Snookie wah) but you can click the image below to listen to the real life struggle behind “Rocky Balboa,” that had me in tears.
“Go girl, go girl, go girl …”
“Sometimes you just have to let it go …”
“You can be a dreamer in your life.”
“You are more than what you have become”
“Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.”
Remember, inspiration is EVERYWHERE. If I could give the aspired one piece of advice, it would be to surround yourself with like-minded individuals. I say like-minded and not just successful because it’s important that people believe in your dream and share a similar vision. Talk to these people, ask them questions, and spend as much time with them as possible. I’m fortunate to have a gang of folks that fall under this category, including the homie Mike Baker from college. He’s always been a HUGE supporter, which makes me even more proud to announce that he’s been recently featured on MTV’s Rap Fix and is doing the damn thang up in NYC.
