The Quest For Success

I'm The Prisoner Who Escaped From Plato's Cave. I Love Life. & I Thirst For Knowledge.
To everybody who posted pictures and quotes from Dr. King on MLK day I want to thank you personally… I feel so connected to everything he stood for that when I see other people show respect for it I get overwhelmed as if his Dream was my Dream…… Because it is.
At one point in my life I was torn between whether or not I wanted to be a businessman or a humanitarian… I wasn’t sure if I just wanted to be successful or if I wanted to make the world a better place… But once you get into the work of MLK… I mean REALLY get into his work like buy the speeches on iTunes and listen word for word and read up on him… He makes you understand why humanitarianism is important… Why we have to work together and help each other and how it affects us all in the grand scheme of things… He was an incredible person man… Seriously… One of the best human beings to ever walk this earth… His message was so clear and so necessary… And it still holds true today… And for that I say… Thank You Dr. King.

iPod on shuffle while I study… Every few songs it’ll bring up an old favorite that I haven’t heard in a while… That Take Care album is still my shit man you could let it ride the whole way through.

Think Big… Think as Big as you thought when you were a kid when you never knew about boundaries or what was “socially acceptable”… And then Get Big- meaning put in the work necessary to achieve those goals you thought of.
Anything is possible. And the best things usually take time to come to fruition, like the pyramids in Ancient Egypt… Or even some of the best movies (the movie “Titanic” took 7 years to make)…
There are no limits- the only boundaries that exist are in your mind… I repeat: there are no limits: the only boundaries that exist are in your mind.

This was my favorite period in Kanye’s career… The album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was a masterpiece lyrically & musically… The Runaway Film was groundbreaking because you’ve never seen shit like that before Ye’ came along… Selita Ebanks in that Phoenix costume… Ballet dancers… The dinner scene with Ye at the head of the table… He pushed the culture forward with that… Even when he would do his live shows and come out with the leather jackets with the gold chains and how creative he was with his stage sets and the backdrops he chose. His work before this was classic and the things he’s done after are groundbreaking (WTT, Yeezus) but this era of Kanye is by far my favorite.

#WCW @elliegoulding can’t remember where I first heard her it was either on her track “Lights” or on Tinie Tempah’s “Wonderman”… Been a fan ever since though. ♠️👌♠️
