Rhyme & Reason: Make the decision to live on purpose #PrimeNYT

We go again,

Recently I had a revelation and that revelation can’t be explained outside context and that context comes in a question — That question is; who do you want to be?

I asked myself this question for a short amount of time (Macro). It took me months to wrap my head round who I wanted to be it took me months. Not to plan my life or how I want to make money or what job I want. Those are still being understood, what I really ended up doing for years was asking myself who I wanted to be.

I knew this question was important because I have earned enough money/ known I can make a commission of my skills/ get a contract and I’ve gained enough notoriety and fame to where people knew me for one thing and in all of that I never felt whole.

I’ve come to find out I had to ask myself who do I want to be. I was blessed with gifts and an amazing talent which has earned me many creative skill which means I earned choice and the thing with choice is when you have to much life can get tricky when you’re starting out because you know no matter what you can always find another way. However to really win in life you need to make a choice within your options, and I have an abundance of options to choose from which opens doors for me but that doesn’t always means those opportunities are mine.

I have never felt good doing just anything and making money in “whatever way I can”. I have always been intentional and wanted to live my life on purpose. I have the intense ability to work hard and work a lot that isn’t the case for everyone but for me it meant these choices were not all the way positive because if I’m someone that lives life on purpose I have to make the decision and choose who I want to be. So I asked myself who do I want to be and make the decision.

What I learned in my abundance of opportunities because of my skill is that not every opportunity is right for me and I had to give myself a guiding philosophy and live by principles that made sense for what I wanted to engage in long term. These philosophies and principle came from all the questions I asked myself for years on end in order to truly gauge what really matters, as when I found out what mattered I found my purpose and when I found my purpose I truly distinguished myself as someone who knew what they were doing.

You see it’s not the statement of me living life on purpose that’s the key it’s my principles as a humans I created in determining what I want to do with my life that bought me to the answer of the question “who do I want to be”. I find no matter who you are if you find the answer to that you will live a more meaningful life, not an easier one or a more fun one more meaningful because you were a better person.

OYOS: A Year Completed, I love Life, God has given me more — The Movement of My Dial

Peace Blessings and Salutations

We go again,

The past year has been full of pain, terror anguish and anxiety. My success has also been incompatible to any other year prior. This is what I learned from it, don’t let what is done to you cripple you, don’t dwell on the defeat of a comrade or the loss of a loved one too long. The spirit of greatness stays and always remember the good as it is and don’t have it tainted jade or glazed over by the the spirit of nostalgia. What’s good is good and what’s done is done.

My life has been littered with pain and in my early 20’s it crippled me. I had to cut out the tumour cauterise the wound and live to fight another day, last year I decided I was ready to fight again and in that I have come by some amazing things

My writing is beloved and exalted by those who read it the message is conveyed and they understand my theories and what I have to offer the world. It’s quite astounding

I have performed at the highest level I ever have doing anything on any level. The only thing that comes close is my world building but even that doesn’t come close to the 150 articles I’ve wrote this year

This year I became an upstanding member of my community offering my help to those that need it and helped the kids that needed the information I had to offer.

My peers see what I do with astonishment and pizzazz, they beckon me to be a co-producer on the productions due to the skill and execution I use on my productions.

Ive created a fair few writing brands under the banner of NYTYPICAL along with the critically regarded Sickle Cell Companion used in hospitals by nurses.

So to say, I am an upstanding member of my community doing everything I can in my power I could do, even on 60% strength on average. That is something I can be proud of. I can do that much service as a whole while serving my career.

This is what I want to continue in more ways furthering to heights no one knew were possible.

This is the Movement of my Dial

Not Your Typical: Receive From Within So You Can Give Without #PrimeNYT

We Go Again,

Are You Living your life or the life you have to live to make someone else happy? This is a question I asked all of my mentees one way or the other, as I find (especially if he/she is not creative) most of them are doing one thing or the other to create a better life for someone else and not themselves.

I say, If your reason to be great; for love; for happiness exist outside yourself i.e. in you wife, in your kids, for your parents, for the world. There is a chance that you can be taken for granted or even worse you can resent those that don’t see the worth in your actions you put forward to make them happy, to make yourself happy.

Have you ever found yourself complaining like, I can’t believe them, do they know all I do for them do they know how I have protected and defended them even when they’re not around or, I have slaved around all this time, I go to work come back, go to. work come back just so I can earn money to feed them, to clothe them, to get them gifts and this is how they treat me? I know I can see myself saying something like that at times.

When you’re a kid your parents do more than what they deem reasonable to make you happy, they want everything for you, but there’s another side, for those that got shouted at for doing something “bad” which you never knew was bad  which will have you thinking that your parents are tripping, this is that thinking. They think you’re ungrateful but you as a 7 year old have no dimensionality for gratitude so it must be built. So you take your Parents “I do this so we can do that and they should thank me”… Sounds about right, right? The only Problem is that with this type of energy where is the things that you do for yourself? is anything you do for yourself anything more than a hobby? Are you living the life you wanted to live or the life that would make them happy?

People will tell you if you want this type of person you will have to live that attracts them, Have you ever lived a life that attracted yourself though? You’re guaranteed to attract someone else for sure but how much of that is really you and how much of that is a facade. How long can you keep up that facade 2, 5, 10 years. Now you can’t even recognise yourself or the person you was before you started trying to attract this person and what you had to do to keep up to make this person “HAPPY”?

I see people say they are gonna get their kids all sorts of things now their kid is dressed in Gucci and that kid is doing kid things in the baby Gucci clothes and the parents say “don’t do that its expensive”… Okay but the child would like to do child things, the kid didn’t look at this luxury outfit and say they wanted it, you did.

Sometimes we work ourselves into a state that was never needed more requested of us, we wanted it for them, we were doing these things to make THEM happy. We weren’t doing it because it was asked of us sometimes it makes you happy to see them happy other times we do things because we think it will make them happy, then if it doesn’t we still request of them gratitude or happiness or affirmation of love.

I say for those times when NOBODY asked you to do these things for them, do it from the openness of your heart and its just something you really wanted to do for them too matter what they thought of the action. Other than that do what is requested and let them know how hard that action might be, then do it anyway, surprise them sometimes with the thing they wanted and knew it was hard for you to give. This will mitigate all sorts of resentment from you and increase the gratitude of all parties involved be that your wife/husband, kid, parents or the world.

With that in mind we are able to give from a relaxed point of view, things you were going to do you’ll do without the lustful expectation of gratitude and things people want from you they can have and give the gratitude you desire multiplied because they know what you had to go through to get it without you putting on a front of ease and poise to please your ego and warping their mainframe into making them think it was no big deal.

Stay composed and keep your neck up

A Thought On: Being an Elite Level Producer, High Performer and Creative Force in my field.

Bless Up from your feet to your head top,

We Go Again,

Ive seen something with my recent Podcast episode (LINK). It allowed me to break down quickly what I care about and who I am as a person and how I as an artist translate those things into the context of the times.

During Episode four of my podcast I was having a Rea hard time that week dealing with the Chaos of family and the falsehood of humanity. however in the midst of all that I was able to really dig deep and succinctly lay out what all these things mean, not just some airy fairy esoteric nor fluffy thing I read in a book or was told but solid life experience spent flexing and stretching and running the tracks and playing the games that life put in front of me.

This conversation didn’t come from revelation but it was something I always knew and never said out loud till I needed it to be said. the articulation of It made it clear that this was a pure form of me communicating what I’m really thinking.

A Note On: Why I Practice All Art Skills to Ensure I live a Life I Can Stand

I am really absolutely grateful for the things I have and I’m ready to accept the things I need to get what I want

We go again,

I been thinking about a plethora of things. When I think about what I have now and the abilities I possess I just want to start with gratitude.

I know who I was way back when, when it came to potential I was full when it came to skill I was one dimensional it was a struggle to even play the cards I was dealt. In my darkest time and breaking away into what was a spinning of a chrysalis, I learned my second skill and around this time I came to the understanding…

There’s was nothing in this world where I don’t have the rudiment

With that my cards opened up in business and artistically it was decided for me that who I was going to be was a man who moulded all this potential energy into something. People would tell me I have it and I wasn’t ready to accept it, sometimes I’m still in the ‘why me’ and at other moments I program to understand – of course it’s me- with that I engage with the infinite.

It’s not really my style to pat myself on the back or to openly express my gratitude for something I’m discovering is innate -making this a Note.

I just know that there’s someone out there who is thought of as being full of this thing called potential. I want to just say to that person to try something, like really try create something, discover a skill, practice it, and see if you can multiply that throughout all the things you love. More so if it’s something you hate, getting great at something you don’t like may sound counter productive but if it’s an essential skill around the working life you manifest to potential to work around anything.

How I understand it now is getting good is easy, it’s never about the thing it’s about the process. If there’s a process then the only thing next is the repetitions and in being Great it’s all about the people who can do the most repetitions the fastest.

Engaging that and applying that will turn your world into a haven you can stand to see.

OYOS: Hoodish – Culture on my block #GrindersMode.

We go again,

Everyone knows the flow and style where I’m from and what it’s about when you’re living there.

But I’ve noticed so much of the philosophy isn’t spoken about, so I’m going to give it a crack.

Hoodish is the philosophy of the road mainly it’s about work-rate and perseverance. Mainly because that’s all you saw, before laws were put in place about public overtime hours all I saw was my parents working 7 days a week to put food in our bellies and clothes on our back. That’s got us all we have and all we could get because more hours working meant more bric-à-brac.

That being the philosophy where I grew up where your first consignment was selling chocolates on a playground and if you were were about that life, you’d turn that into a Q and so forth.

Credibility was earned on hard work. Where I’m from you put your hoodie on and keep your head low and get to doin whatever you’re doing to rub pence together to make a pound.

So when I’m feeling HOODISH I get that grinders itch, that no matter what I’m doing I feel I need to do more to get more.

That’s the ethics of where I was raised and when I apply it to this life I’m living now it can mean much more than what it was worth before.

OYOS: Legacy Builder —What is Legacy to me

We go again,

There’s a plan afoot. And I love the life we live

Legacy is knowing what you stand for and perpetuating it across your life. This take a mountain of self awareness, it’s not easy living for something because so many people from where I’m from die for nothing. So we think living in the moment or being willing to die for a cause is the only way to go about life.

Well, my life is being used to have people share in my experience and as I acknowledge my faults along the way so will I get better. God made me a very specific way and since I was young I knew I could do anything in spite of my circumstances. Think of it me where everything should have had me dead by now I’m not choosing to live in the moment I’m choosing to live for the cause and consciously be part of the change I’m trying to effect.

Being a constant in a room full of waves trends and memes is hard. Doing things your own way is difficult and not a lot of people were built for this type of pressure that’s why it’s got to be chosen. Legacy is much more than what I leave in this world when I’m gone it’s what I think of myself while I’m around and not convincing myself I’m

With my legacy principles attached there’s no escaping it. It’s really not a mission or a lifestyle. It’s akin to Buddhism a way whether I’m writing about fashion, or my strict philosophy like now or a poem about struggles, being a better person or sickle cell. It’s all the same thing.
