Success is Overrated

I know all these motivational guys, the gurus they're gonna' be salty. They say go go go hustle hard skip sleep make money that's cool it has its place but all of that takes seconds PRIORITY TO ENJOYING YOUR LIFE to loving the people around you 'Cause let me tell you this... The death of all of these celebrities, The death of the people around me really got me thinking about how SHORT LIFE IS and if you listen to these guys who say go go go you're going to miss what's important. You're gonna' find yourself CLIMBING UP A LADDER and if you get to the top, that's if, you get to the top... You're gonna realize, DANG... It was leaning against THE WRONG WALL I promise you there are A LOT of successful people in the graveyard right now that would happily, I guarantee you, happily give anything to be above ground one more day so that they can tell their family, to tell their friends, that they love them. JUST ONE MORE TIME because that's what's important. As the old saying goes, "there has never been a death bed regret, that went boy... I wish I spent more time in the office." Or "boy I wish I spent more time hustling." Or "boy I wish I spent more time making more money." It was jack kornfield who said, "in the end, only three things really matter.

1. How well we lived

2. How well we loved

3. How well we learned to let go. He didn't say how well we

built our bank accounts. He didn't say how well we  built our mansions. He didn't say how well we built our social media followings. You better WAKE UP before it's too late. I believe it was Shakespeare who said that I have seen many unhappy kings, but many happy shoemakers. Zig Ziglar said "everybody knows money won't make them happy, but everybody wants to find out for themselves." So listen to me Bruh, Sis I'm not saying "DON'T BE SUCCESSFUL" there's nothing wrong with financial success. Listen, I'm an entrepreneur myself, I like money... In fact, Im'a tell you a secret. I don't think you can get too mush money.  But if money GETS YOU that's too mush. If money becomes your God, if you make a millions dollars, but lose your friends, and your family, in the process, is that success? If you make a billion dollars, but lose your health in the process, is that success? These guys talk about "don't sleep". What you mean "don't sleep"?  Sleep is more important than your diet and exercise program combined. You can't think clearly if you don't sleep. They talking about I'll SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD no you will be dead  if you don't sleep the Dalai Lama himself, he said "man sacrafices his health to build up his money. And then man sacrifices his money to rebuild his health. You ever feel bad for enjoying yourself? Like "Oh l should be doing this, I should be doing that." But you should be doing exactly what you're doing now, fully. Whether that's watching a movie. Whether that's, enjoying a night out with friends, you should be doing that fully. Don't let these guys, these gurus, guilt trip you out of enjoying your life, or taking care of you. Don't let your Ambition be come your prison. Imaging you grind hard everyday for years and you finally get the dream car you always wanted, but you don't have anybody in that passenger seat to ride with you. You driving so fast, you don't even appreciate the breeze blowing through your hair. You better SLOW DOWN. Slow down and enjoy this thing CALLED LIFE enjoy the moments. You only have a limited number of them. Stop always grinding. See when you're grinding, you're going against something. We need to flow with life. Flow stop and smell the flowers and give other people the flowers while they, can still smell them. Because in the end... Only three things truly matter.

1. How well we Lived

2. How well we loved

3. How well we learned  to let go
