Going into anything that will better yourself, you have to know from the get go that you are not going to have that much of a support system. When branching off from the majority you have to understand at the door that many unsuccessful dream killers just don’t want you to become a self-motivated dream chaser. It just doesn’t sit well with many people around you.
You will run into dream killers that will do everything in their power to stop you from continuing down the path of success. They want to stop you because they have dreams they were too scared to reach. While all the other little birdies jumped out of their mothers nest, leaving their sweet supportive comfort zone to chase the world, they stayed in leaving their own dreams and dignity behind.
The World around you doesn’t reward unmotivated individuals. Especially us as Black Men. We have to dig deep and be prepared to except ridicule from our own race and others as well. As a Black Man we are at the bottom and need to understand this before we even chase a dream. We have to know there will be many stressful days and nights but we can’t give up pursuing our dreams. We just want have much of support if we don’t do what the majority of the Black Men are doing in the hood; which is going to prison, rapping, gang-banging, serving drugs, being a uneducated fool and many other things that the majority see as the perfect negro. I know it’s hard but your work will pay off if you stick to the path.
As a Black Man you have to know that the world isn’t just going to hand you a pass to success. We have to work 4 times as harder than our oppressors just to be considered valuable. We have to understand that one slip up could cause us 5 times more of a punishment than the opposite race. We see how unfair the prison system is with us within the inner city communities. We know that to be successful we can’t be 40 deep in the club smoking gas toting pistols with negro’s we barely know. Before you even start your own journey it is imperative you know how to continually operate around people who will never value you.
