To Quote A Great "Life knocked a ni**ha off his feet, but I crawled back. If that aint a hustler, then what you call that?"  - JayZ

Its crazy how all of my biggest achievements came when I was in a hole, down to nothing, feeling unbearable pressure. 

Any sane person would have quit.. given up. But every time I look back I have to be thankful for my failures because without them, their was no force to rise up. 

I've had no choice but to conquer. 

This is how I discover layers of myself. Its like an onion, rough to cut through. You might unleash a tear or two, but without that struggle you never get to the food. 

So I'm grateful for the struggle because without it I would never have found myself.

Would I do it again? RE-LIVE THE HOLE?? FU*K NO! 

But, Ive learned to appreciate it. Its given me the gift of myself. 

I say all of this to encourage you - empower you. If right now you're in a hole I have 3 tips to getting you out. 

Self-Awareness this is honestly the best thing you can do for yourself period. Take inventory of yourself, your beliefs, what you're doing versus what you said you'd do. 

Find out where you need to grow and what layers inside yourself have yet to be found.

Remember, their is no limit to the pinnacles you can reach. But, you first have to understand where you are, so that you can map where you're going to go. 

Don't Quit winners never quit and quitters never win. Write this down somewhere you will see it every morning when you wake up and every night before you go to bed.

This is important for your mental stability during this time.

Then read this statement aloud... & see in your own hand writing:


Fight, Even If You Have To Crawl this is your life you're fighting for, so its worth the fight.

Like I said, when I was in my hole, any sane person would have quit. But the truth is the great fight. 

If you've gotten this far in the blog you've got greatness - so start with a crawl. Crawl until you can stand and eventually you will find your will to fight. 

Life's a cruel teacher and it gives no fu*k's about "how you feel". You gotta get knocked down 9 times and get up 10. 

Stand firm, have faith and FIGHT (even if your start's a crawl)

Always wishing you the best,
