For the love of the game

It's funny how random things inspire us. I recently completed 60 hours of community service. My hours were spent riding around the city of LA in a truck hopping in and out to re-paint over gang signs, graffiti and anything else the supervisors told me to do. It started out as something that I dreaded doing and and I procrastinated on it for over a year, but I finally made up my mind to get it done and put it behind me. 

After two or three days of showing up for the work, I realized that I enjoyed to paint, community service began to almost seem fun.  One day, I came home and was inspired to go to a craft store and buy supplies to paint my on own time. I haven't done very much drawing or painting since high school but I remembered the one class I actually enjoyed other than PE, was art. 

I feel painting has a very tranquil and calming effect and allows me to slow down my thoughts. I enjoy painting Jay's because I feel it represents my hustle, my lifestyle and the competitive spirit within me. Like millions of other young kids, I grew up idolizing Michael Jordan. I took all his ideologies about the game and applied them to my life, and now...? The same kid who couldn't afford Jay's and got yelled at in school for drawing them in class, owns over 60 pairs. #crazy #jordans #blessed #plssaythe513

My Next Will Be My Best...

(Anjaneyasana (Low Lunge) Variation)

(Vasisthasana - Side Plank)

When I started out, I was pursuing a dream, I was pursuing a career, I was pursuing approval. Glory to God, now I can say that the only thing I am wholeheartedly pursuing is God's wisdom. No, I'm not a preacher at this point in my life, but I am very much into spiritual expansion. In the past, I wasn't able to blog consistently because it was hard for me to find content within myself that I felt passionate enough to write about. 

Over these past few years, a lot has changed in my life. I have experienced a multitude of trials and tribulations, all steppingstones, which I believe to be Divinely put in my place so that I could arrive at my current state of mind. I now realize that I am one with everything. God, people, plants and animals the whole Universe. I know it sounds a little cliché, but we are all connected. It's crazy hard for me to explain through the written word, but I experience it physically, in my body. I now realize that I am closer than ever before to fulfilling my dreams and truest ambitions. #godisgood #iamthatiam #plssaythe513

Wisdom becomes knowledge when it becomes your personal experience. A guru can give you wisdom but he can not give you knowledge.

I will Persist I Will Succeed Today Is A Day Of Completion

I dropped the ball for a lil minute, but I'm back. I give thanks to The Most High and the positive love, energy and influences of the people closest to me. 

I am again ready. I pick up my cross and carry myself with faith into a future with a drastically healthier and more spiritually balanced lifestyle. To truly seek the kingdom, I believe you must first realize your oneness with God. Though this oneness you learn to love yourself as you know the Spirit of Divine love has guided you the whole way. 

I believe God made me a hustler at birth and I consider everything I do to be apart of my hustle, whether it's writing rhymes, listening to beats, going to the gym, doing yoga, selling my mixtapes on foot up 'n down Hollywood blvd or reading my favorite self help books over and over again. My life is dedicated to the hustle and I consider this blog another outlet and means of bringing you into my world and ways of thinking. This is my hustle family. Welcome.

Thoughts From The Mind Of the 513 Hustler

I activate the the laws of attraction in everything that I do and I know with 100% faith that it's working. I can feel my thoughts getting stronger and I know that every person and situation in my life is a direct result of the thoughts and feelings I've clung to in past. 

My goal for this post is not to attempt to teach you how or why the laws of attraction work but rather just show you how I use them in my everyday life. Everybody remembers collage art day in grade school. The teacher pulls out stacks on stacks of old magazines from her supply closet and gives each student a poster bored. They are told to cut and paste all the things he or she wants to be or get out of life. 

This exercise has stuck win me my entire life and in my mind, what it comes down to, is this: How much time do you spend thinking about the things you want?  It is so easy to fall into the trap of be overly focused on daily obligations (which tend to be mostly negative) that we don't spend enough time thinking about where we are going and where we want to go. We can't see the grand vision. This grand vision is what pulls us forward. 

I have a visualization wall to help keep my mind in a high place. It helps me to reprogram my subconscious mind and I naturally begin to spend more time thinking about the things I want, rather than my vain present moment dilemma.
