OYOS Part 3/3 Law of Trafalgar

These the laws of Trafalgar, the very same that I live by today are more of a sentiment an ode to entrepreneurship rather than a recount of a moment in time. For Trafalgar’s Law was a build up that started in Uni & the beginning of a new Era. The world was seen in a different light, you can say I was in the New World

It all started in my Homies room where I shed tears for all the dumb shit that I was doing and how unserious of a candidate I was for success. I told myself I was going to make it one day but I needed to be serious about my life. Remember at this point I was making more money than I’ve made any year prior, but to me, it wasn’t enough. I needed more I needed it to be real and I needed it to be mine.

I started with my attire I needed to feel good, by any means. Professional every day, without fail. this is the same time now I went after the jobs I wanted and successfully conquered many days at the same time I put myself out there and started promoting what I wanted. Live streaming was my medium, I lit it up as an influencer. I was more aware and more accepting of my surroundings creating situations and ‘following the money.’ Because at the start of everything you must follow something, and not being broke was a priority.

After leaving University and being back home, home. I looked at my surroundings and prepared and visualised what I wanted to happen. After declining an offer at Jacobs, I needed to create some source of income, it had to be quick and needed a source to generate income. Simple, I will be a handyman, they’re independent willing to fail and I could easily make £100. a day (which we did).

Simple right. Yes. But nothing ever comes easy and sourcing things by yourself is a full irritation. I’m not one to do things for myself so I told myself simply help someone make money you’ll definitely make something. So I called a great friend Hugo, asked how he was doing. (Bear in mind we’ve done a little business before) Coming from my power base he was easy to talk to, we both wanted better for ourselves and are willing to try our hardest to get it.

This is where our talk in trafalgar square took place. where I learned of my true power as a leader. filled with so much purpose I spoke and he listened. we exchanged many words and as we we’re seated I felt our minds on the same wavelength, when I spoke to him about my dreams for a great business he wanted nothing more than to help me along the way. How I would like to see it is that ‘a man of principles came to me first for help’. This is the only respectable way I can view it because after that talk we learned and spoke for months on end committing ourselves to a high performance attitude with nothing more than enthusiasm behind us. We truly moved like a whirlwind, as one, like a wildfire.

That High didn’t last long as high performance leads to high friction. and personalities clashing. However nothing gets in the way of the one true vision as I learned you must always remind people of & be a symbol of such, embodying every characteristic of the person you said you would be for them, a very taxing position but a worthwhile one long term. The problem is, a high performance attitude doesn’t last too long in someone who isn’t truly prepared for it and quite frankly I got tired of being the guy to lean on – my personal folly – I knew not of what it really took to be a leader.

This is where I learned the dark side to my charisma. as much as I give spiritually is as much that gets taken from me, with no positive spirit give back only negative energy can fuel the head. and thats toxic. No one needs that, amongst other thing this led Hugo and I to part ways, I never want to feel like a boss and I never want it to be just me as the driving force to someone else passion. They need a thing, I can be that thing but not for long, one must learn to run alone or not at all.

It took me two years to complete this, when I started OYOS the first part was over a year away and the second was months, writing about something in the thing isn’t something I like to do having true retrospect where you can look at all parties actions fairly is where I’d rather place my hat especially in Law of Trafalgar. We learned so much I’d have hated to create a bias representation of any part involved and this is just the light read version, when the book and/or film get involved I will surely use my all to write it exactly how it went. Till then

I’m sorry? Always there?

I’m not really gonna use my degree but I’m gonna complete it so it’s always there

This is the type of jargon I hear On a day to day Being a 20SMTHNG. It’s a conundrum I am yet to understand, these guys that complete a degree with no means of pursuing its career path. What is there to it and who thinks in this way?? The methodology of this human strikes me as “one of those stories” the story of the uninspired the story of the under motivated the story, what do you need to know is there why must it be there who put that in your mind.

Then you complain this is the part that infuriates me you will do as your parents ask and go to university get this degree, And complain out loud to everybody else but the people who forced you in this predicament… Maybe I’m just entitled or privileged to some but how can I got to a place and live with the decisions someone else made for me. YIKES! It’s a catch 22 of life, you hate what you do but if you don’t do it you’re bringing shame on your family? So your happiness is intentionally disregarded. 

Now if you’re a doctor, engineer, architect or something of the kind you are needed and required to do something of such a grandiose scale that is so much for the betterment of man which is a noble pursuit not subject to inquiry. It’s taxing and you are entitled to complain every now and then. Especially after you realise how much time you are giving to your craft that’s you. And I am not talking to these people. None the less there’s a faction of people that do Degrees for the “sake” of doing it with no future intentions of being part of the culture the education is intended. Education is important especially for those that need it. To the people that abuse the system it dilutes the resolution of those that come in it with the best of intentions to add to society and grow the culture of the world we live in.

A number of people that seldom love what they do taxes my mind, where I try and have spent time trying to understand the ideals of those that go into things with no intention of fulfilling the field requirements as a lifetime career. The conclusion I’ve come to is they are trying to achieve a societal norm or type of status investment when it is more a detriment to the people who truly want to live the life intended.

I want to finish this with a why question. Why are you doing what you’re doing? As a human, I believe in loving what you do regardless of the price tag attached to it and the sacrifice involved. And when you come to a true resolution you achieve a lot more of your life s purpose. Do you think you’re doing that by living in something you don’t appreciate as much as the person next to you?
