You heard that saying a lot as a child i'm sure, and it is still true to this day. We must treat everyone the same. Only showing love and support to successful people just so they show you some love back is fake love. That is what we see today. People become fake friends with successful people in the hopes that they get something in return. That is what Drake meant by, "I got fake people showing fake love to me". Meaning that people do not really love him but are only showing love just to receive something, whether that be money, status, or exposure. If you are an inspiring rapper, you should be the main person showing love to other inspiring artist because you know what they are going through. You never know who will blow up and who won't. That person who you thought would not go anywhere could be the next big time artist and could be the person that gets you where you want to me. You have to have love and support in your heart for everyone because you would want that same love and support from other people back. Putting those positive vibes out into the atmosphere is essential to your success. You can't not show people love and then be upset when no one is showing you love. You control the vibes you give and receive. Whichever side you are on, make show the love you're showing and receiving is genuine.
I heard this and it really shook my soul. Most of us strive to be rich, successful, and famous, but would we be able to handle it? If you were awarded 500 million dollars tomorrow, what would you do with it? We have to understand what comes with that blessing. When you have that amount of money, your tax bracket changes, meaning you will have to pay more in taxes. Having that much money, your family may expect you to support them. Family you haven’t heard from in years will come out of the woods and tell you about their problems and how they need help. Fake friends and ‘yes’ men will appear and try and ride your coattails. The opposite sex will begin to seek after you with bad intentions. You will have a hard time finding people who you can trust. Your friends may start to change how they look at you or treat you. These are just a few examples of how life can change. You can have everything that you have wished for and still have a empty feeling within you. I know some people are reading this will say, “Well i'd rather have those problem and be rich than not and be broke.” There are people who have very little money but they have more joy and peace than a multi-millionaire. We should be seeking peace and health instead of riches and wealth. Not saying we should not want to have nice things but God knows what we can and cant handle and he will not give us more than we can bear. If those blessings are meant for you, God will bless you with them.
You ever have a bad day and began to complain about it? You're not feeling too well so you speak about it? Get down on yourself? Verbally doubt yourself? Expressing yourself is a natural thing to do but we must be careful with what we are saying. Your tongue is very powerful. In the bible, James 3 teaches us this lesson. The book gives examples of small things that have mighty power. One example is the bit in the mouth of a horse. This powerful beast is controlled by a small object in its mouth. So are we controlled by our tongue. Another example is how a forest fire begins. It only takes a small spark to start a fire which can consume hundreds of acres of land. The same is true about our tongue. All it takes is one negative comment and that can spread and cause you to doubt yourself or negatively impact a situation. The saying "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me", is not accurate. Words can hurt and words can impact a situation either positively or negatively. What you say will come to pass. If you are negative and say that something isn't going to work, you can't be surprised when it doesn't work. We must faithful speak things into existence. If you want to live a certain lifestyle, say it out loud. Say to yourself who you are and what you want, and watch it begin to happen. If you truly believe, it will come to pass.
