Ya’ll ain’t gotta be in fear of ya’ll bosses there
You lose your job, your pop rich, ya’ll don’t care
So I don’t care, ya’ll acting like ya’ll don’t hear – Jay Z’s Young, Gifted and Black Freestyle
Last week I re-read Malcolm Gladwell’s book Outliers: The Story of Success. You see, re-reading books keeps me from forgetting some of the life principles and ideas that I have learned over the years. I first read this book during undergrad and it really helped me shape my view of success. Realizing that success is not always a product of your own talent nor is it a result of pure IQ. Success in many areas of life relies on the circumstances that you find yourself in and exploiting opportunities.
Starting to alter my views of success. It’s not just a “monetary” view or a “status” view but rather a view for me by me. The look and feel of success is starting to shape for me.
