So you want to be a baller? There is only one true way to be a baller. Let me show you:
1. Know Yo’ Role
Look man, what kinda baller do you want to be. A proficient basketball player? Maybe, someone with a large bank account? Possibly a mackdaddy with the ladies? All of the above? This step is crucial. You gotta know your role in this game of life and play it all out. Go Hard in the Mother F@#%in Paint, ya heard me? You can only go hard once you have a position to play. A reason for steppin on the court in the first place. In basic terms, you must create a powerful vision for the future. This will motivate you to give it all you got.
2. Be a Book Baller
Once you have a powerful vision, you gotta be a book baller. You gotta get a powerful library of motivation that will fill your head with positivity and motivation because negativity is everywhere, and you can’t let that shit get to you. Holler at my boys: Tony Robbins, Les Brown, and Wayne Dyer to get your #PositiveSwag goin.
2.b, Don’t Forget the Audiotapes!
You gotta have audio so you can get motivation and positivity swag while you’re engaged in activities that don’t warrant reading a book. Like driving or doing chores. Doing chores while listening to audiobooks is like masterbating while you’re having sex. Doubley awesome. These are my favorite audio programs: Unleash the Power Within, The Power of Now (Enlightenment Swag), and How To Be A No-Limit Person
Don’t Talk About It, Be About It
Are you bout it bout it? Prove it! Ralph Waldo Emerson said “Who you are speaks so loudly I can’t hear what you’re saying.” SWAG. Dude was killin em in the 1800s. Who you are is composed of your actions, not your words. So, quit bullshitting everyone with your talk, cause if you’re talking bout it, you’re wastin time that you could be doin it. Ballers don’t talk. They go.
The Rap Up
1. Create a compelling future. Visualize it. Feel it. Know what you want, because if you don’t someone else will gladly force their vision of what you should be on you.
2. Feed your mind with positive books and audio programs. It is human nature to be negative. You’ve gotta over ride this tendency and train your mind to be strong, positive and driven, cause it ain’t easy. Listen to how R. Kelly and Snoop Dogg elegantly put it.
3. Take massive action in pursuit of your dreams. Talking about it, thinking about it will only lead to disappointment.
5. You are now a baller.
