The toughest question to ask is: Are you being true to yourself? If you are, you should be routinely turning away people in your life who don't fully align with your highest aspirations. On the other hand, if you're trying to be everyone's friend, chances are you're not surrounding yourself with the right people you need to truly excel. Follow Dee-1 on Instagram @dee1music

We all know the old saying: "The Education System kills CREATIVITY." CREATIVITY by definition means: the use of the imagination or original ideas. For years what we've all been saying is that the traditional educational system itself doesn't create an independent or productive society. Why hasn't this changed or improved? What is the solution? In this interview done by @blackmillionaires_ , Spectacular provides a answer.

If their murdering of innocent people actually brought people together in a meaningful way that actually threatened the system, they would stop murdering people immediately. We're asking justice from a system that has shown us time and time again that it has neither the will, nor capacity to protect us or give us any genuine justice. The courts are an extension of the state; the same state that trains and arms the military and police force. They are deliberately making us angry and traumatized. All while our youth kneel peacefully while risking their lives in attempt to gain a mutual understanding from a criminal justice system that has historically and unjustly been making arrest, publicly killing us and letting drugs into our communities. We can't concentrate moving this way. We can't think clearly moving this way. So therefore we cannot build or unify moving this way. Most of us are looking for a quick fix. No one wants to hear a plan that spans generations. Everything we think about and plan must have future generations in mind. This is why we should be having and building strong families. Strong families build strong communities. Strong families establish cooperative economics. That's real POWER! #BLM ✊🏾

When people try to identify what makes entrepreneurs so special compared to the “followers” in this entrepreneurship era, they usually list off traits like: Creativity, Drive and Independence. These elements certainly matter, but there’s another trait that trumps everything else for success. INTEGRITY.

Entrepreneurship demands sacrifices, and if you don't make those sacrifices you'll never be able to succeed. Business is, at its core, is a give-and-take process. The more you invest wisely, whether that be your time or money, the more you'll reap in rewards in due time.

If you want to reach your goals you'll have to shut out everything that interferes with them. That means completely removing DISTRACTIONS. Distractions include: Toxic relationships and friendships, too much social media and TV usage, listening to too many people, mistaking busyness for productivity, saying “yes” to everything. By recognizing some of the biggest distractions that plague entrepreneurs, you’re less likely to fall victim to them and stay focused. Successful people are FOCUSED peop

Accept It. Identify It. Face It. Feel It. Overcome It. A large degree of what you accomplish in life, what you are capable of, is going to depend on how you deal with fear.  You might be afraid to confront someone, borrow money to grow your business, or introduce yourself to someone you admire. We all have moments of fear, but very few of us see those moments as opportunities both internally and externally.

Like any entrepreneur, at some point you will feel like giving up as you think you are failing, you’re not good enough or that your idea is no good. Everyone goes through this stage at some point — or multiple points — in their lives, entrepreneur or not. The important thing is to keep going and not to give up. If you truly want something then you must strive to make it a reality and work at it every day or chance you get, regardless of the inevitable obstacles.

If leading by example is one of the best ways to motivate the best in others, then leading by words that aren't mirrored by your actions is one of the most certain ways to bring out the worst in others. No matter what the situation is or how well you justify your double standards, when people witness you saying one thing and doing another, it ALWAYS feels like a betrayal.

Often, relationships get put on the back-burner, mostly due to “not enough time to build them.” In an era where virtual reality is overtaking personal relationships, it is more important than ever to be aware of the people around you. One person may be the one catalyst that impacts you or your company in a monumental way. By cultivating trust first, you will set yourself up for lifelong success.

In today's 'Insta-gratification Era' it can feel impossible to be grateful for what we currently have & own. This type of unhealthy thinking causes you to comprise your own integrity and self-respect, all for the sake of online attention. You'll be willing to take any & every shortcut for likes and reposts while never realizing cutting corners = walking in circles. You have to learn to love and be YOURSELF, or forever be miserable. This is the real difference between winners and losers!

The reality is that there are no such things as shortcuts in life. Everything obtained in life is part of a process. Shortcuts are disguised 'wins' that inevitably lead to long trails of consequences. Put the work in and earn what you need and want so it isn't a temporary win!

If you're not supporting the right people in your life, you're supporting the toxic ones. Test your circle for weak links.  Toxic people try to control you. Toxic people disregard your boundaries. Toxic people take without giving. Toxic people are always “right.” Toxic people aren’t honest. Toxic people love to be victims. Toxic people don’t take responsibility.

"Compassion is the key. While empathy is the tendency to feel others’ emotions and take them on as if you were feeling them, compassion is the intent to contribute to the happiness and well-being of others. Compassion, therefore, is more proactive, which means we can make a habit of it. By doing so, we can counter the loss of empathy that results from holding power, and in turn enable better leadership and human connections at work." - Harvard Business Review (Leadership Article - February 2018)

It's easy to focus and fall in love with the materialistic end result (the jewelry, the cars, the clothes, etc.) without acknowledging the mindset used by the giants we admire (Jay-Z, Diddy, Nipsey Hussle) that earned the accomplishments we tell ourselves we're striving for. So what's more important? What makes one person more successful than the next? It starts with what you value and what you know makes you truly valuable.

Most people don’t like specifying goals because they don’t want to specify conditions for failure. If you keep yourself vague and foggy, which is easy, it won’t be apparent when you have failed. Not specifying your own goals means not knowing your target and not having a clue what you’re aiming at, so now what? You must plan a life that you would like to have. Having a schedule makes all the difference to having the day you actually want—while simultaneously creating the possibility of a goal-structure. This podcast is powered by Pinecast.

People often say that there isn't a single person that can hold them back from achieving their goals that they set for themselves. No parent, professor, best friend or stranger can dictate your future.

Whether you like it or not, they will be there peering over your shoulder, overanalyzing every decision, criticizing every flaw. That person is you. This podcast is powered by Pinecast.
