The chicken doesn't want to know how to make soup
A kid around the age of twenty six is walking down the street when he see's a book on the ground from afar. When he gets closer to the book it disappears right before his eyes he finds it odd and wonders if he was just imagining things. he shook it off and kept walking, never to fully catch his balance, this was when he almost tripped over the book. He picked up the book and starts to read it
kid: Imagination rules the world
Questioning his own knowledge.
The kid puts the book in his pocket and keeps walking hears more noises in the woods before now. Acorns drop like bullets, he looks around. Clanking from hammers to houses. Homes being renovated he thinks of his mind being his first home he starts to read and renovate his home as well. Hammers continue to pound. Fuck! The worker says about his job done incorrectly as he gets down the ladder, as the kid walks past the contractor, they exchange greetings. The kid gets around the bin waves to another car passing and goes behind a tree to take a leak and in the process finds another book. He takes a picture of this book since he forgot to take a picture of the first book crickets grasshoppers birds all the sounds of the woods start to kick in an add paranoia in the peace left in the piece of his mind. The peculair sound of acorns dropping on the surface of the water slowing down time for the second the acorn hits the water. A break of beautiful silence is cracked by another acorn falling on a house sounding loud enough to set off car alarms. The kid keeps walking. Listening to music by jhene aiko he starts to read the first book he picked up still questioning the dream/day he was having. The cars passed some waved some didn't. He cared less about them. He was too busy looking as this glowing book that made him so anxious to study every parameter of this book. He had no idea, but what the kid had in his hands was the answer to all problem.
He avoids cars as he walks reading this book when a car stops and it's asks if he wants a ride.
He gets in its his friend bb from Bitely and another kid he did not know. The kid begins to rant about this movie he is writing and asks them if they want to be in his movie. They ask him how much weed he smoked this morning, he admits he had a few. The passenger now known as bb's friend is rolling a blunt and begins to rant as well cutting off the kid in hopes his new proposition will be worth listening to. You ever heard of the cheddar boyz? he says miraculously the kid had he knew a few Detroit artist so he was hip to the groove, but he couldn't tell you a song they sang for shit. The passanger kept rolling the blunt and giving his bit on how all he needs is a studio and he's gonna be on. The kid had heard this numerous amounts of times he didn't want to waste his breath but he was interested in the conversation he agreed to meet up and get in the studio. The passenger went on as he lit the blunt and passed it to bb the kid gives bb his number and gets out. The kid says a few more words about some Detroit artists he knew and the passanger continues big Sean wants to do a mixtape with my brother right now. The kid was thinking anything can happen no matter where you are its about the right time for everything. He got to a quiet place at his grandparents house and started reading.
His grandparents come out and get into an arguement
Asshole she calls him
He leaves before he could hear her. The kid just listens, excuse my French his grandmother says as an acorn cracks the slide he used to play on when he was a little kid. What in the' his grandmother says... She has a mouth in her today the kid thinks he puts his reading off to start painting his grandparents picket fence white.

Before we begin I want to say that we must read in order to find, learn and know our history. Ted Turner once said:
"Lead, follow, or get out of the way".
So with our imagination we must find, and nuture our personhood. We may not think reading is (cool) or popular, but anything being cool is a foolish state of mind.
Only a fool will want to be unwise for his entirety.
Noah once said this about being caught in the storm in other words being made fun of for being wise: tis better to be laughed at and be safe from the storm than to be caught in the storm just because you didn't want to be laughed at.
In conclusion, we must change the world by starting with the mind of our children.
By teaching them to read we are keeping them safe. We can't harbor our children in our homes in hope that we are keeping our children safe. American businessman John Shedd once said "A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.
Thank you again

Whatever you do, stop to listen don't shoot the bull when your with your grandparents and they're teaching you a lesson.
You have it when your young, but once you get older time doesn't wait. So why should you?
Bishop TD Jakes really gives great insight on instinct on Oprah's life class I think both these griots deserve a good listen or a good read.
Lost you guys for a minute lol but I'm back! For good! I won't take a day off again. Once you take a day off people will lose interest in you so you gotta stay on the ball can't drop it. With that said, lets rocket it like no other.

Morning walks are extremely important.
I once read about how billionaires start they're day. They wake up earlier than you and I can imagine and they send emails, go for a walk, run the treadmil, read they're favorite paper. They do it all before anything gets in the way of they're personal time. They're routine sticks like glue and what it does for their self motivation I'm still wondering.
So I'm walking...
Its not 5 am or 6 its 8:45 am but that's close enough. They pick those times because they're the earlybird that's getting the worm. That and their routine is so well practiced that its second nature. This is why they say do something you love until it becomes second nature. There's a story about a butcher I'll get into that another time, but damn do they know how to keep a disciplined schedule. This helps them focus and be ready for the day. Think about it they're getting 20 hours in a day, or more. The morning is the best time to get the day started, easily. Try it, most people already do it, but the difference is the routine. Do you read your favorite blog aka rocketjrjr, or do you have a coffee and read the newspaper. Maybe a book! Most billionaires are spending that morning time which is crucial time to them its chrunch time.
They eat breakfast go for a run and answer emails, but you can be sure they're making money the minute they're feet hit the ground. If I thought to hit this blog the minute my feet hit the ground, pretty soon I'd be a millionaire. Depending upon my own desire to become one I could really make something out of nothing with just the overdrive of ambition that I learned from a CEO, or a millionaire. To think on that level is almost far fetched, but what if I told you it works. Think of a fisherman that gets up at the hour the sun does and has a line out by five am and doesn't leave until 9 maybe ten pm. How many fish do you think he caught? Well it depends, but if he made it out of bed at 4 am and out on the lake by five the guy is destined for some type of reward.
Even the fisherman that made it on the lake at 5 pm can get that reward, but not the reward of a real fisherman. The real fisherman looks at the beauty of the lake. He sees it before anyone and he gives thanks for this, but he should be thanking himself. You can't just expect a big catch unless your overly prepared. The earlybird fisherman we will call him is the one who is destined for greatness. He's put in the work, as slang would say. He has given himself the motivation to make fishing his second nature. That's what I'm doing with this blog. I won't even call it a blog anymore I will call it a lake. Woodland lake because anytime I refer this lake to a blog it becomes a man made pond full of big fish and a no skill needed whatsoever sign sitting at the end of the dock. More importantly I become fisherman b the late bird who got lucky.
There is plenty of work to be done before any big reward can even be excepted. If fish all of a sudden just jumped in the boat the fisherman would go home. He came because he wanted a fight, he wanted to go through some kind of supernatural feeling to find his natural habitat. You see all living creatures were made to struggle, but not all were meant for the struggle. Meaning you can't expect everyone to be contempt with being second as they catch the imaginary worm . Someone was meant for the first place. In conclusion we don't wake up early just to say we did it. We do it to get shit done. Excuse my French, but do you think the Great Wall of China was built in ten years or in two days? Do you think the Great Wall of China is more like a pond or a lake, because I think of it as a sea.
Everyone looks at life differently so we tend to be mad, or jealous at ones sense of urgency, or his amount of Discipline, and reward, but we shouldn't! Don't get discouraged, get this courage. The courage they have is fear, their only corage as bob would say. Or no fear really.
To me those people are looking to build their own great wall of china before they're time is up. Treasure your time and you'll always have a way to make money, that's what they did! They made time for a way to make money. Regardless of how they made money the ritual before this money was made got them there.
Enough about them!
