Clear Vision

On a daily basis I talk to people about their goals, dreams and aspirations. It never seems to amaze me that the majority of people all yearn for the same thing. A better life. But what does amaze me is how unclear their visions actually are. Most people can actually see and feel the things that hold them back. And still they do nothing about it. Nor do they make any effort to change their situation. What most people do is complain. They complain about their jobs, their children, money, even giving a real effort. I learned that the world doesn't want a loser. It only wants and respect winners. So I tell people all the time, that in order to succeed a person must first have a winner's attitude. All winners have a clear vision. If most people made a real effort to build the habit of establishing a clear vision, the final outcome would be tremendous. It doesn't matter if you desire wealth, better relationships, knowledge or success, you can achieve it all, and more. If only you have a clear vision of what you want. If people don't believe that having a clear vision will benefit them, then check out my story, because I'm living proof that having clear vision is the key to your ultimate success. But you have to want it.

Would have to say I definitely agree. I can understand that most of us want things and situations in our life to be better, however, most of never form any type of plan nor do we set goals to help acheive these things. I can remember being a teenager recording 30 to 50 songs and never promoting myself properly or really pushing for what I dreamed of because I was under the false assumption that it would come to me. I thought letting someone hear this or giving a few people that would launch me to superstardom. I had no idea of the work actually involved and for a person with a clear vision this would have been obvious. It's important that when we make up our minds to do something we make a genuine effort to do it. Regardless of what anyone wants to do with themselves in this life they have to first have that vision of the path they wish to walk and once they do they need to walk that path. Anything is possible. Ask Barrack Obama. Great writing Ricky. (Hope you got the last letter. I emailed who you said to a few days ago and I'm just waiting on there responses. Holla at you soon.)

It's the absolute truth, that lives can be improved by the individual. While God may have put us all here with destiny, we are the ones in control of that destiny. Taking initiative to make positive change in any aspect of your life is all it takes to notice a difference. It can even make a difference in the lives of people around you.

Great writing Rick. I mailed out my info, and a cd. It says it was delivered yesterday morning. Feel free to contact me upon it's arrival. God bless.

Hey Rick,

This is legit stuff, keep it up. I love that you're giving hope through guidance to youth who would otherwise not know where to turn.

Keep it up bro,
Ryan

I know I must be years behind what's been going on - I just saw the American Gangster profile tonight! I was not moved by the journey that brought Ricky to his current destination, but I was -and am- moved by the determination with which he is making strides to improve the world we live in. The Freeway Academy, and efforts like it, have to become a staple in black communities or we will continue to be our own worst enemy. I support Ricky and anxiously await his success when his time for planning has ended and the time for doing begins.

J. Young: What's up lil homie? Hey listen, I want you to give Straw a holla. His number is 773-297-9942. Tell him you are going to help me with the TMI Boyz album. Hey I need to try to give them some club play and radio play and dump as many cd's as you can.

I am glad you agree with me cause it's absouletly correct. And being with prior plans, we never put them in action. Some people plan there life away. Man that example that you gave with the 30 to 50 songs. Nothing is going to come to you but poverty. Everybody is looking for it to fall out the sky. Anything thats worth having is worth working for. I totally agree, this business is very important. Yea I got your last letter. Let me know if they don't get back to you on that email. Peace. $Triple R$

Mizzzetta: You just saw it, huh? I understand you, nobody should be moved by my past journey. But I do plan on making the world a better place. Yea it is time for us to stop being our worst enemy. But to be honest, the time for doing is already started. I am working daily to put it together. I could use all the help I can get. America needs us, our country is falling, and it appears that our leaders don't have clue. They are out of touch and can't relate. I hope Obama and Biden will listen to the people and get the country back on track. Because the ghetto is a reflection of the whole country. $Triple R$

Matsiko: I don't plan on stopping. Yea its amazing how you can get negitivity everywhere. It's hard to find the positive. But I plan on being that one, to help shine the light. Peace. $Triple R$
