Your world needs you. Not a copy of your best friend, not a copy of the hottest celebrity. YOU. God has given you a unique set of gifts and abilities, don't be afraid to present them to the world. You have a call and purpose on your life that only you can fulfill. Embrace those gift, trust the giver and be everything God created you to be.
Groupthink. This concept is more popular now than ever. Basically, groupthink says I follow the group because I give in to the pressure they exert and do not feel like taking the alternative path, stance or view. You know what groupthink looks like. I call the mid 2000’s to the witness stand to testify. TALL WHITE TEE’S *Dem Franchize Boys plays in the background*. The mid 2000’s were a dark age for hip hop fashion. I can’t tell you how many 3x white tees and size 36 (I weighed all of 150 pounds at the time) wide leg FUBU, Rocawear and Sean Jean jeans I had. If one of your friends had on an XL tee…that was grounds for breach of friendship, “Dog, why is your shirt so young?” A question an XL tee wearer would hear mercilessly.
Don't wait for the big opportunity to prepare for the big opportunity. David was able to defeat Goliath, not because of strength or stature. David was just a teen and a lot smaller then Goliath. David was able to defeat Goliath because even though he was a young man, he had been preparing for that moment all his life.
