The power of the spoken word is real. Words manifest reality. What we talk about matters as much as how we talk about it. It’s a delicate situation. But with tact, we can drive the conversation forward in a productive way.

One of my all-time favorite books, one I’ll probably re-read every year for the rest of my life. Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When The Stakes Are High. Read this book. Study this book and you’ll become an expert at conversation. Or at least be on your way there.

Some people say: “What’s the point? It’s all going to shit anyway!” I would respond with: isn’t it worth a try? That’s why I unfollow people who are infected with this “defeatist ” mindset. If you wanna take the black pill keep that shit to yourself. Why are you spreading that shit on social media? Might was well put up a white flag in surrender. 

We don’t do that here. Here, we keep going. No matter what. Blood, Sweat and Tears. No room for any doubt in your mind. Time to act. Time to act right and not lose focus. You MUST ignore the people who throw shade. consciously unconsciously, it doesn’t matter. Delete negative words from your vocabulary. Someone said the word “boring: to me in conversation the other day. I was kind of in awe. It’s 2023 about to be 2024 and you have time to be b****. Don’t use that word around me. If you use negative words, I’m going to try to avoid you.
