"An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure!"

Most of the time people never take the consequences of their actions into consideration until they're dealing with the consequences of their actions.

Many bad situations are predictable & easily avoidable. Just think of the worst case scenario and then do everything you can to keep it from happening.

Better to be able to say "I'm glad I did" than to have to say "I wish I would have ..."

Do Something ... THEN DO MORE!

You are respsonsible for where you are. If you're in an unfavorable situation, you CAN get out of it. You CAN change it. You CAN get out of the hood. You CAN get out of that dead-end job. However, there are 2 things you need to know. 1. It's NOT going to be easy. 2. It's going to take time. The sooner you start the sooner you achieve. If you do nothing, you'll get nothing - AND THAT's JUST WHAT YOU DESERVE.

People want to blame the government and their jobs, and their bosses, and the fact that they were born in the hood as reasons why they aren't where they want to be in life. These are garbage excuses. Yeah - I said it. There are no laws saying you can't become whoever or whatever you want to be (unless you're looking for employment in illegal enterprises), YOU chose your job. Yeah, they hired you, but you applied for that job.

Bosses ... Hey ... I know they're a pain in the ass. But your boss wasn't born your boss. He or she had to go through some crap to get to be a boss. If YOU want to be a boss, or have more than what you have today, you are going to have to do something about it. No one is going to do it for you. In short, if you want more than what you already have, you're going to have to do more than you've already done.

That's just how the game works. You don't have to like it, but if you want to change your situation for the better, you're damn sure going to have to play it.
