A SHORT POEM TO GO OUT AND DO IT

There is your reality and there is your ambition; between the two is potential.

When you go after your ambitions, it means you are working on your potential. Your potential bar is filling and charging.

Working on your potential upsets your reality. It gives better levels to your reality.

That call you make, that meeting, that email you send; it means you learning to negotiate ambitions closer. Going after potential makes you a skilled person.

Even if your ambitions don’t materialize, you’ve just learned how to negotiate ambitions. You are skilled baby!

Go after potential with action.

Sitting and dreaming gives you nothing but nothing.

Executing potential gives you skill equity. No one can take that away from. In fact you are more attractive to the world that way.

Black Panther Is Good for Black People’s Economic Growth – and Here Is What Pro-Black Political Correctists Can Learn from It

Intro

Go back. What stood out for you as a kid when you first heard the story of Jesus Christ? What feeling did you get; what feeling do you even get today? I will come back to this later.

What Black Panther reverses (the epigenetics)

Black Panther is good for the economic growth of black people. In a big way, it adds to the reversal of the century-plus brain wiring (epigenetics) of slavery, colonisation and apartheid.
