Eat Your Fist If You Want To Live!

Toes with a smile :) by Sjany.
A smile is a facelift that's in everyone's price range
When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.
Life being tough is quite a fictional statement.
Sure you have your good days and you have your bad days.
You even have the days where nothing seems to be going right.

1.You leave your keys inside your car after a long day of work
2.You forget your wife's birthday
3.Or you even forget to pick up your daughter from ballet practice

Things are meant to go wrong. Its the challenge which makes life interesting. I like to call it an Adventure.We take everything so seriously now a days. We forget to enjoy the journey.
When things "go wrong", so to speak. The best thing to do is to think good thoughts and keep your train of thought moving.

A positive attitude is encompassed with a smile and the persistence to be bigger than the problem at hand. Make the decision to respond to life with a positive incentive rather than a negative reaction. Look, I'm not asking you to be Jesus of Nazareth or Marcus Aurelius. What I'm saying is to smile those petty nuances away. Keep you head up to the sky. For tomorrow is another day. The key is to cherish every moment.

Life is too short to live in misery. Our responses to life's difficulties can lead us up or down. You choose which path to follow..

The choices are

It is your decision,no one else.What path will you choose?

This has been a message from the dropout kid. Peace

Can't you tell your Intuition is on the Off switch!

* intuition by La Java :).

Can you see the light at the end of the tunnel? Because you can. If you choose to- Dropout kid

What is intuition?

Let me allow Steven Jobs to illustrate what intuition is.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary".

Okay Steve let me take over from here :)

If you didn’t get the picture yet, let me tear the photo out of the frame. Our intuition is an innate feeling each of us have. Few acknowledge it. It's the inkling feeling you get when an idea hits your brain to do something. Any action elated to your goals in life or desires. Intuion is your soul pseaking from deep within. Telling you what needs to be done inorder to reach the destination your yearning for. Nothingmore nothing less.

Learning to count on your intuition can be tricky. But you'll know with practice. I took you a while to forget about it. It will take you some time to get back into using it.

Where did it come from?

As children , all we did was follow our intuition. Some of it was good ( watch Barney) some of it was bad ( play with fire) either was it formed who we are today. Find your inner child today and run wild with how you feel inside. Let your inner voice guide you to success. I know, you can do it!


Start to meditate

Meditation bring clarity to the world you know. Find a quite spot for 15 minutes a day and listen to silence. This practice will change your life and your heighten the use of your inner guidance system; intuition. Do this for 30 days straight and you will see the different. Matter of fact, you'll feel it! I guarantee it!

Signing out the dropout kid!

Your still Leaving In fear? You need action Action; JACKSON!

Action shot revolution!

Action shot revolution! by Niccirf.

"Action Cures Fear"- The Dropout Kid

We all need to take action in our lives. Doing too much thinking can get us into a rut, most aren’t trained to climb out of. We can fiddle our thumbs all we want. But if you don’t take action, nothing will happen.

When you feel caught up in your psyche; Take massive action. Do something at that every moment to conquer the situation.

If you don’t take action, you will be wasting valuable time. Then regrets will begin to hinder your soul. Just do what feels appropriate and right. Go for your dreams, goals and aspirations. And just fly through the sky, expecting to grow your wings on the way down.

Forget your past and live in the present moment. You can do it! Because If I can so can you. I used to have a fear of approaching woman. It was real bad. And only recently did I get over this silly little fact. After a couple of affirmative action steps and goals set for me. I began to open up while learning a few tricks along the way. You can do the same in any aspect of your life. Just take action. The greatest thing which stops us from being successful Is not our inability to achieve. But the idea we are more powerful than we truly are.

Apply this knowledge and you will have the power. Peace!

Be Bold Or Get your A** Home!

be bold... by peet-astn.

Be bold!

If you don’t get anything else from this post, remember to be bold.

Do something today that will alter your life forever.

I’m not saying steal a car and go joy riding.

But do something outside yourself today! Say something outside of your personality and see the reactions from others. Play around a bit more. Loosen up the tie, step inside the booth, and release the superman or woman deep inside. Too many times we get caught up in the comfort zone of our lives. Sleeping for longer than 8 hours, saying the same “hello good morning” phrases and even taking our girlfriends to the same restaurants. I’ve been a victim of this too. My girl sometimes likes to go to this Italian restaurant in Soho, Manhattan. I don’t mind it. But I make sure we explore other places all the time. She’s spontaneous, so it works great.

Do the same in your life!

Be different by never accepting the mundane life, you’ve chosen.

Be fearless in your approach to any obstacle.

Here is the tip of the day! “Act as if it was impossible to fail “Do this and you will conquer every fear and embrace every bit of ambiguity which tortured your soul for several years!

What happens if my attempts back fires?

SO WHAT; is my response.

You’re living on this earth not only to succeed, but understand failure is a part of success. It’s a part of growth. So it’s best to embrace failure. It’s a lesson within every false claim. Its up to you to find the gem inside the pile of mud.

Here what you need to do.

Buy a dress you normally wouldn’t purchase

Go test drive that car you think you can afford one of these days

Sneak into a movie. A little excitement never hurt anybody

Be an asshole today, if you a nice guy. (Girls love assholes)

Eat something exotic for dinner tonight

Tell that girl who you’ve dated for a few years, how much you cherish her, even if you’re not the sentimental type.

Wear two different color sneakers of the same design

Lastly, be grateful for who you are and where you are.

Life can be taken in an instant. Take your time and try something new each and every day.

Last but not least be BOLD!

When are you going to start acting Bold?

Or what bold actions have you done so far? How has it changed you?

Let me know how you feel!

Can Eminem Make You Famous?

8 Mile Rd in Detroit by DetroitDerek Photography.

"You can do anything you put your mind to man" - Eminem

I was watching a very inspiration movie today. It’s called 8mile if you’re wondering? Have you ever seen it? If not, I suggest you go to your local blockbuster or Netflix and rent this great movie.

The film is about a young man struggle to be recognized as a great Mc. Protagonist “rabbit”, is played by international superstar Eminem, maybe you’ve heard of him? I know your kids have. The film depicts rabbit’s Detroit lifestyle. His mother is a raging alcoholic, his friends are his closest thing to family and being a single father with a dead end job shows his quickly this life isn’t for him. Music is his only escape from his unhappy life and Rabbit want to be free from prison. His day to day regress and progress keeps one’s thinking about his or her own struggle to achieve. Beyond the clips which can bring tears you your eyes at times. The message is purely simple.

“Follow your heart, your dreams will set you free”.

The fact is, our dreams are usually put on the back burner. Why? Most of us believe dreams are just images of what we cannot have. Things we don’t deserve. Truth is, dreams and visions are what make us human. Without a dream or a purpose most perish. And so have I before I began to embody personal development.

My dream is to be a bestselling author at age 21, use my passion to create timeless music, create a world renown fashion line and do some stellar academy award winning acting. Without these seeds of greatness molted into my spinal cord, I would enjoy my life as it is now or feel as if I’m needed.

Just like Rabbit, success is my only motha sucking option failures not.

What is your option?

You got two options.

One you can look at this blog post and say. Hey dude, you’re too young to be telling me what to do. What can I learn from 21 year old kid like you. My response: we can all learn from each other, I’m just doing my part to contribute to a better life, you could be living.

Second option is to say, how I can do it? How can it reach a level of mental freedom where I can dream big and work towards my goals? My response. Find yourself a mirror. Look deep into your eyes and tell yourself you’re going to follow your heart as long as you live. No more fearing. Start some mental steering. Driving your attitude towards a positive light rather than a negative. Start saying I can rather than I can't.

Now go Follow your Dreams!

This is a message from The Dropout Kid…Hope you’ll be back next time. Peace

What are some of your most inspirational movies?

8Mile is mines, whats your! :)

5 Ways A Dropout Can Help you Succeed

"I ended up dropping out of high school. I'm a high school dropout, which I'm not proud to say, ... I had some teachers that I still think of fondly and were amazing to me. But I had other teachers who said, 'You know what? This dream of yours is a hobby. When are you going to give it up?' I had teachers who I could tell didn't want to be there. And I just couldn't get inspired by someone who didn't want to be there"

-Hilary Swank

In a world where its hard to believe in anything now a days.
It's only right that I present to you " the Drop out kid's" 5 ways to develop a belief in your self. ( this blog post is not funded by the Board of Education)

Number #1: You are not defined by your GPA

Approximately 10.5 million students graduate from college with a Bachelors degree every year. In 1993 it was a mere 3.3 million. It has since tripled since then.

But the desire to become better people has thus fallen. Most students believe after you've graduated college you are “successful", Naughty, Naughty, Naughty.

The truth is an MBA, BA or even a PhD, could never replace great imagination and an entrepreneurial spirit.

So if you stuck in a rut; Confused about what to do in your life, remember the only way to seek true success is doing something you love to do. Throwing your whole heart and soul into that activity.

This is true success. This is true happiness. This is how you grow to be an asset in society rather than a liability.

So, what do you enjoy doing? The answer to this is you calling. Trust the message and follow you heart as I have done.

Number #2: What do you really want to do?

We all have been taught since kindergarten to be doctors, lawyers, investment bankers and even psychical therapist. I too wanted to be all those occupations when I was younger. But as I’ve grown up in this society, I came to the realization that the life style I wanted to live could not encompass the salary of these 4 occupations.

Nor did I truly want to be apart of these fine professions. It was just not for me. So as a college dropout “which I’m proud of” I set my sight on new horizons. Till this day I’ve been getting my book together and working on being considered one of the youngest and greatest personal development authors of my time.

Each and every day I dedicate hour, after hour after hour putting my all into my BIG DREAMS. Its the only thing which motivates me and keeps me alive.

What do you want to do?

Who do you want to become?

Ask yourself these questions, and the answer will lead you down a path Alice wouldn't dare fall into.

Number #3: You can do it

Most of us, like myself have never received encouragement from anyone, unless it was by mistake. I learned early on as you should, that you'll never need anyone to congratulate you on your endeavors.

I know it may be great to have encouragement and you should but you don't need it. Trust yourself. Believe you can do. All you need is yourself at the end of the day.

One you have developed this attitude you will be unstoppable; a force to be reckoned with. Today, if people are telling you can't, or you won't. Stand tall in front of the mirror, loud and proud, with the conviction of a navy pilot about to risk his life for the country he loves so dearly and say:


Say this over and over again, and you will most certainly succeed at anything you put your heart upon. For whatever the mind can conceive and believe it can most certainly achieve.

Number#4: End Wishful thinking

We all wish for good things to happen to us in our lives. But the only thing which will guarantee a great life, good financial standing and a mouth that spews only administration for yourself and others is a Positive attitude.

You have to develop a positiveBold

attitude as I have. Outsidersmay look at this blog and say "How is he different from everybody else? How can he help me change my life, he's only a kid". I smile these comments off and know as long as I keep my mind on my ultimate goal for this blog, my website which I’m building currently and the consistency of thought, I will reach my GOAL.

Do the same. Take action. And you too one day will achieve you DREAMS.

Number #5: Have some fun why don't you

Many times people take life too seriously they for get to live in the present moment. We end up following the 3 box rule and die slowly of old age or an intolerable sickness.

The 3 box rule if you’re not familiar with is this. Phase 1: We are educated for 12 - 16 years so we are able to work in society. Phase 2: We work hard, setting up some type of living standards so we can be financially free. Phase 3: We retire as an adult and wait to die.

I was brain washed myself into this phrase, but broke out of American societal norms. I live my life carefree of the opinion of other while working hard towards my big dreams.

And as long as I keep trucking I will reach my stop someday.

Take a rest.

Then keep going to the next one.

But I never take myself too seriously to enjoy the day or even smile and laugh at my blunders. Do the same and you too will be able to change the way you look at things. And when you do, the things you look at also change. ( Wayne Dyer)

Has this Dropout kid helped you in any way?

DragonBall Z Meets Personal Development Part 1


Welcome to a # part Saga of Dragon Ball Z meets Personal development. Without Further a due, lets listen in closely to the author!

Besides being my favorite Japanese Anime of all time. Dragon ball z is a show written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama. Originally serialized as a Weekly Shonen Jump from 1984 to 1995, and later publishes into 42 tankobon volumes by Shueisha. This series is inspired by the Chinese folk novel Journey to the West, It follows the adventures of Son Goku from his childhood through adulthood as he trains in martial arts and explores the world in search of the seven mystical objects known as the Dragon Balls, which can summon a wish-granting dragon. Along his journey, Goku meets several friends and fights against several villains who also seek the dragon balls. This later evolving into Dragon ball GT.

This weekend I reached season 3, when i realized several things. Those who move surpassed the most challenging obstacles in life are those people who have an insatiable desire to achieve.

For example: Goku ( main character), is challenged by legendary warrior Freeza. Freeza's mission to Destroy planet Namek, find the dragon balls and wish himself to immortality. But Goku's best friends are on planet namek on the same mission but with a worthy cause. They want to bring there friends back to life, who were killed saving planet earth several years ago. From the Get go Goku's master ( King KAi), told him to avoid Freeza at all cost. He said the fight with Freeza was surpassed his capabilities and he would die if he tried.

But as fate had it, Freeza was inescapable. Goku's friends were in danger of getting killed, so he had no choice , but to fight this evil doer. Considered to be a fool by his own teahcer and friends as well, Goku stepped up to the plate to defend those he loved so dearly.
Including his best friend Krillen and his 10 year old son Gohan.

Always being a person who never placed a limit on his potential. After tireless fighting and the death of his best friend Krillen Goku was able to evolve surpassed tribal conditioning's and defeat Freeza for good. Savng his friends from further torment.

So what separates Goku from the rest?

I believe we all have a bit of Goku inside of us. Each of us has the ability to do more than we think we can. Moving beyond what those say is possible and fight for something greater than our selves by taking our powers to the next level. Goku's desire to win this battle was beyond boiling point, It was mandatory. He had to win if he wanted to bring his friends back to life, hold on to his wife one more time or see his kid Gohan before he starts school next year. His Why was bigger than his How. And this is how he defeated freiza.

What has Goku Taught me?

1. We are only limited by what we think we can do. Like Henry Ford said" If you think you can or you think you can't your right". Most warriors who have challenged freeza have died, why? They were defeated in there minds already before they even attempted to pick a fight with him. Goku on the other hand, even tough told it was impossible to defeat freeza was willing to try. Willing to do what ever it took, to change this fact into a possibly. For as Goku said himself " When there's a will there's a way".

2. It was once said " when the WHY is big enough, the HOW doesn't matter'. Goku's why was the fate of the whole universe, including his loving wife Che che, best friend Krillen, and son Gohan. Everyone on planet earth conscious of unconscious of the battle was riding on his courage and bravery to press on no matter what. He had a big enough why which take care of the hows on levels he never thought existed.

What are some of your whys for succeeding beyond you possible "Limit"?

3. Goku persevered no matter the obstacle. Even as a little boy training he was able to keep pushing no matter what. He never gave into any thing, not even once. Well, maybe his wife's good loving. ( smile). But the point is Goku always believed in the possible when others believed in impossibility. He believes in what i can the Winston Churchill motto ( never, ever ever give up). You so the same.

4. Goku always felt his purpose was to protect and serve. To protect and serve those who couldn't do so themselves. Even if it meant scarifying his own body for a cause greater than himself. By any mean possible, he did what he could no matter what. The good guy attitude we all should embody. Aware from negativity into the light of positivity is the attitude Goku hold. How many times did you smile today?

5. Goku being a sayian ( Race of people from outer space) has never been satisfied where he's at. Always moving onward in search of perfection. Goku spends his day training hard, hard, hard. To be the best you have to work as if your the best. Believing in himself has always been an attribute which separated goku from the masses (Like begin from outer space was not enough).
He has always believed in the possibility when there seems to be impossibility. Always moving forward, never looking back at yesterday and being in the present moment is what make Goku one of a kind. May you too should be in search of perfection. As the saying goes " Never be afraid to fall from the sky my friend". Keep your head height to the sky, feet on the ground and our mind on the moon.

- Thank you and God Bless

Is there a bit of Goku in you?

Do You Have The Will To Press On????

Being sick for the past 2 day has taught me a valuable lesson. My health is the most important thing I have in this life time. A long time wealth seeker and financial freedom advocator. Seeing that I'm 21 yeas of age i sometimes get side tracked by egotistical thoughts. Use less ideologies about making a million and stunting on those who said " you can't do that". Well I'm no longer on this road to failure, I've seen the light of day clear than before.

Success to me was fancy clothes, ice-ed out chains, half a million dollar cars and a bottle of Rose'. The fact is the only thing I consider wealth to be is my health. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said " The first wealth is health".

So instead of jumping around my room screaming for universal abundance. I no longer chase success. The more I chase the quicker it dispenses from my corneas. Success like happiness and good health must not be pursued but ensued. I've let go of my inability to hold onto my good health by no longer chasing it. Learning to become grateful for what I have, I'm currently in the healing process. Just expecting things to get better. And like all things, we get what we expect.

So what does this mean to you?
You can learn from my mental blunders by practicing the following.
1. Forget about success. The more you worry about success, happiness or good health the more it will elude you. In order to be what you desire you must for get about it and all it to manifest. Soon you will be surrounded with what you wanted. And gracious to have stepped aside the lime light of pursuit into place of positive expectancy. Do this and all will come to the individual who believes.

2. Be grateful to be able to feel pain. For with the ability to get sick we will never be able to embrace joy of good health. Find appreciation in ever given moment of your life. You are the gyro compass of your thoughts. Never sacrifice your attitude just because your body may not be up to par. We are what we think. Think good health to get back into the game of life. The difference between the eternally sick and quick fixes is one word. Attitude. What yours today?

In the race of life, we may all lose track of the facts. Forget about success, wealth and good health. By not chasing it. The more we chase, the more it eludes us. remember we are what we think. Think good thoughts and work daily towards your goals. One love!

Can't Trust Uncle Russell Or Can you?

Image by :~evolutionsky
For the past week I've been reading Russell Simmons Best selling book Do You. Chopped filled with goodies, let me illustrate his 12 laws f success. Maybe your familiar with these ideas. If not, pay attention closely. These wise words of wisdom can change your life.

Law Number one
See your vision and stick to it
Most of us have an idea of what we want to accomplish. But we tend to give up before the storm hits. Or we sail along the deserted seas, crash landed on abandoned island. If you have a dream or a strong desire for success. You will get up early, stay up late, practice the affirmations and follow your vision till the end. Why? Because when the why is big enough, then how never matters. Stick to your dreams.

Law Number Two
Always do you
Take action today. Do what you think needs to be done right now. Don't wait till the last minute. I used to do this when I attended Stony Brook University. Every time I had to take an exam. I would wait at least 2 days prior before I studied. i usually got off with a C or a High D +. Don't make this mistake. Start now. And always do you. You can do anything you put your mind too. Start today to end procrastination.

Law Number Three
Get your mind right
Do whatever is necessary to get your mind right. Repeating affirmations, using creative visualization or meditating on a daily basis. Success or failure in life is not based upon action. But upon the mental attitude one may hold. Grip an attitude of positivity, not destructive thinking.

Law Number Four
Stop fronting and start today
The present moment is all which matters. Not too long ago I was severely depressed and guilt stricken. Being a college dropout made me believe success lied in the diploma not the mind set. Having grown from this fabricated mindset, I've learned, success is determined by purposeful action. Not resentments of the past. Take action now. What ever you want you can have. Once you stop fronting and take action today. Don't waste a minute. Tomorrow is never guaranteed; all we have is now.

Law Number Five
Never less than you best
We are at your happiest when we are had at work. With out head down, no external distractions and doing what we love to do. This is the key to successful living. So many people hate the word hard work. Thats, why so many people fail to succeed in life. Long hours, longer nights and sacrifice just scare away the masses. But when your going what you love, you'll never work a day in your life. Choose this path, how? Step out of your comfort zone and do what you 've been afraid of doing all this time.

Law Number Six
Surround your self with right people
Association breed similarities. You wouldn't find a crack dealer from Brooklyn handing out with the president of def jam records right. Socializing about how they can increase the peace on a global scale. Why? Like attracts like. Who you are is the direct reflection of who you talk to day in and day out. Who you ask for advice, who you joke around with or even make love to is a reflection of who you really are. If you don't want to be like these people, you know what to do.

Law Number Seven
There are no failures only quitters
You fail once you quit my friends. The man of woman who wants it the baddest hang onto the cliff longer after the majority have lossen their grips.
People like Edison, Oprah and Russell, persevered. You can do the same. You must face your fear, stand against mental dis pare and dismember the thoughts of doubt. Severing the head of hesitation while walking confidently though the torturous realms of greatness. Be you. And as Russell would say " Do You".

Law Number Eight
Science of success: plant good seeds
Your mind is like a garden. What ever thought you plant, will sprout. As long as you continue to nurture this belief it will one day manifest into a horrifying harvest of a daisy expression of love and success. Make sure you keep your self talk and thoughts congruent with a life you want to live. Leave tribal conditionings of the past. Open a new chapter in your life, now and forever.
We become what we think about. So who do you want to become?

Law Number Nine
You can never get before you can give
Practice the law of sowing and reaping. You cannot reap more than you sow. And you cannot sow more then you reap. Learn to end this incessant adolescent mindset to take, take , take. Give or your self more than you ever imagined. Only then will you succeed more than you ever thought possible.

Law Number Ten
Successful people stay open to change
Nothing in the world will stay the same. It's best to accept change and deal with it. Change should never scare you one bit. We are all changing. No one here has found the fountain of youth , correct? The fact is change is apart of life. Successful people acknowledge this and appreciate this very same fact. Without change we lie early in our graves, before the sun goes down. Mentally asleep to the wonderful world around us.

Law Number Eleven
Be powerful, be heard
Become an assertive powerful positive person. An individual who speaks with authority and takes nothing from no one. If you believe in a issue stand up against in justice. If you live for a purpose, let your voice he hear. Be the change you want to see in yourself. It starts with you.

Law Number Twelve
Spit the truth to power
Stand like a man for what you believe in. Don't be scared to voice you opinion. Even if you'll get booed for it. It's better to be your self than anyone else. For we can only be who we are. If not what is the point.

So have you been Using Uncle Russells Ideas?
Agree or Disagree?
