Today i came across this video of an educated homeless man. The people who filmed the video were absolutely shocked and amazed at how such an educated person could end up homeless without a job.
The answer is easy. Lack of the proper networking. Americans brag about their degrees and how educated they are. Kanye West was one of the first artists to bring to light how poor a lot of people with degrees are. Most millionaires dropped out of school. I asked my facebook page the other day “What is one thing that all rich people have in common other than money?” The number one answer would be they have a rich network. Having the right people in your life can mean the difference between surviving or losing everything. No matter how smart you are if you don’t have any help you will lose when faced with opposing odds.
Who you know is much more important than what you know. Simply having knowledge is meaningless without the proper application of it. The outcome of your Life is based upon what you will do with your acquired knowledge.
Give 100 people $100 and 95 of them will spend it. 3 will save it and 2 will invest it into something to make even more money. One person will lose their $100 in the wrong investment and the other person will manage to make a profit from their investment.. That’s really the way life goes.
So many people are caught up in the falsities that are put out there by the public in general, religion and the government. People do not realize these are all outlets of control. I had a argument the other day about how strippers were smart enough to use what they had to pay their bills. The other person’s argument was that stripping was immoral.
The other person went on to state that they made $1700 a day. I joked and said that he should send me a paypal then because I may have to start doing something immoral like a stripping job to pay my bills. And of course he said he wasn’t going to send me any money.
He gave the exact answer I was looking for. At the end of the day bills have to be paid. You can be a moral, broke, homeless person or you can be immoral in the eyes of many and get your bills paid. People will tell you what to do and judge you but those same people will not lift a finger to help you when you get that eviction notice. People really should stop letting other people’s morals and values get in the way of their own success and happiness.
The Higher Educational system is a great way to network. If you go to college strictly to learn you are already starting out wrong. These higher institutions are a source of revenue and actually the very source of why so many people are lame and blind to the realities of life. These same people come out of college in debt having to pay back loans. Slaves of American falsities.
If you are broke can you really afford your morals? If you are broke that means you have a lot of broke people in your life. It may be time to evaluate your associations. At the end of the day it’s all about getting money. Nobody cares if you are a nice broke person. People only want to associate themselves with successful people. Ten years later your past will be just that. Your past. You can do what is necessary to guarantee a better future or you can live in the now and be morally correct and end up nowhere in life.. Life is not fair. At the end of the day a win is a win.
FOOD 4 THOUGHT… I’m not telling you it’s ok to be a morally corrupt person. But I am saying, if it’s not hurting anyone do what you gotta do and recognize that you need worthwhile people in your life. Some people will make it the straight “A”/morally correct way. Others have to recognize that “A” is not working for them and they might have to do B, or B, C and D in order to make it.
It’s America. You have options. Choose Wisely.
