Which of these are you guilty of? Don’t take life for granted and make the most of your time on this planet.
How about we stop telling people how to Live. If someone wants to live “average” then let them be. Unless they are hurting someone or relying on you, then how they live doesn’t concern you. Maybe “average” can equal happy to them. Nigel, please don’t think that because you’ve stepped your travelling game up that your accomplishing something in the broader spectrum.Life is not about travelling, Life is about Helping.
Did you even check the 11 points made? It is clearly telling to people to pursue their dreams and step outside the box. How can you possibly be against that? What is the, “broader spectrum,” of life mean to you? At the end of the day life is all about experiences, everything else will just be a blur. What have you accomplished since you are judging accomplishments?
Wise man told me don’t argue. Just chill Nigel
3, 4 im guilty off, but im happy with my life .
At the end of the day if people need this to wake them up then they really have no ambition or motivation to do anything. Thats on them. This is the reason the average person is a hater. Hov said it best, “Let me live out my dreams until my heart gives out”
Im not trying to throw a shot at you , Nigel. Please forgive me. My point is “happiness” and “average” are terms that are defined by self. Every single person on this planet is different, don’t try to dictate what their life should be.
So would you be happy not pursuing your dreams?
Nigel, don’t worry about this nicca. First he was talking shit about “your travels” and he comes back with “I aint taking shots”. Fuk ’em. MF gonna throw stones and then backpedal when attention is brought to it. Hilarious…
Nigel as a foreigner, I’m already living my dreams away a third world country where theres a war everyday, gotta try to sleep thru the ground shaking from bombs n missiles.. im happy that my family n i are able to live our life here in the states considering where we’re from before
I don’t think this one was written for niggas at all (Kat Williams voice) . I feel like a lot more black people need to start trying to aim for “average”. The problem in the black community is everybody wants to be an athlete or entertainer and that’s not realistic. I think niggas question authority too much, niggas be getting an attitude with the boss then get mad when they get fired. If you are sitting at your desk for 40 hours and are only productive for 10 then you just a lazy nigga. Don’t be mad when they give that promotion to somebody else. I’m not saying don’t try to reach for your dreams but niggas got to get the basics down first. Most of the niggas I grew up with ain’t go to college, don’t got stable jobs, and probably won’t live until 60. So I’m thinking this comic strip is for white people.
Co-sign this as much as humanly possible
“everbody wants to be an athlete or entertainer…” that is by design. from the Maryland Doctrine of Exclusion, Blacks were only to be competitive with Whites in sports and entertainment.
However, we need to get past this….and start a successful dry cleaners or something and move on up to the east side. LOL!
nigel i feel you on this one, these are the type of posts that are needed, but average is nowhere close to happiness, everyday i dream and imagine how am i gonna live my life, and everyday i feel like i havent done anything to pursue them, people dont understand that an average life is the destruction of man…think about it, what is average nowadays? having nice shoes, women, clothes, and trying to get money by any means possible…..religion is being lost, and many dreams of americans is going with it…..i appreciate this post to be honest with you, cause my life is average and whats to become of me is too unknown for even me….good look nigel
only americans speaks one language…
Guilty of doing 3 and how things are going i’m gonna end up doing 4 and onward.
I’m in college because I have to be but the thing is I don’t have any dreams I would like to pursue. I guess its better than doing nothing.
Bruh, don’t feel like that. There’s so much for you to learn and explore. Don’t worry. Just keep learning. It’ll come to you.
Sorry for all these posts, but I’m pretty passionate about this subject. We have finally gotten to a point of self determination and we’ve got to decide where we collectively want to go with it.
Where we are, is NOT where we need to stay.,,,
^^^^^ i feel you on that
Pick up the book – Breaking the Chains of Psycological Slavery, by Na’im Akbar.
“Black People in America have a much greater inner power than they realize, but they must re-discover themselves in order to use it.” – Na’im Akbar
Nigel this was a good one though even though I disagree with it a little bit. Got the people talking and thinking keep up the good work.
I feel that God made everyone with a purpose in life. Even in the Bible when you look out proverbs it talks about how wisdom changes from being simple.
I’m feeling this 1. Keep the good post Nigel
Yo… I Never Comment On Posts Even Though I Love RealTalk And Check This Blog Daily… But To Comment Negatively On This Post Is Foolish… It’s Simply Foolish… I Was Surprised To See All The Negative Comments On Here… All This Is Is Motivation… If You Already Meet These Standards Then This Doesn’t Apply To You… But If Not Then You Should AIM To Meet These Standards…
Nigel HAS Accomplished Something By Traveling… It’s Important To See The World And Broaden Your Horizons… And The Reason I Come To This Site As Opposed To Worldstar Or Any Of The Others Is Because You Can Tell That Nigel Is A Progressive Thinker… So In A Way He Is Helping… By Filtering Out Some Of The Foolishness That Those Other Sites Post And Only Delivering The Shit That’s Substantial Or The Shit That Can’t Be Denied (Like Lil B And Chief Keef)…
To The Dude Up At The Top Who Said “Happiness” Means Different Things To Different People… That’s True… But Being Average Isn’t Happiness To Anyone… I Repeat: Being Average Isn’t Happiness To Anyone… I Could Go On And On About This Man But Hopefully In Due Time That Sub-Par Mentality Will Cancel Itself Out As More Progressive Thinkers Like Nigel And Others Make Their Way Deeper Into The Hip Hop Culture… Eventually It Will be Cool To Be Smart & Progressive… I Just Wish That Day Would Hurry Up… Mental Slavery Is Harder To Abolish Than Actual Slavery… #DAMN
Ok, I think the main reason we are average is because we have responsibilities like family and, we can’t find the perfect time to pursue our own dreams because the world moves fast with or without you and, we don’t want to be left behind.
Life is a delicate tightrope between what you WANT to do and what you HAVE to do. People go broke or become burdens to other people all for the sake of their dreams.
I’m definitely guilty of several of those things but I also support myself fully. You have to give in to the system a little bit if want to be self reliant. The catch is that’s when life happens, you get bills and babies along the way and all of a sudden you no longer feel motivated to learn new languages or travel. This is a cycle we must (and I believe my generation will) break out of. It’s. a give and take though.
i love this post its motivational. Not negative.
5 – I disagree – u think its cool to spent holiday somwhere where it isnt safe?
ok so go for example to gaza strip or central africa…go risk your damn life and be cool *smh*, be happy that u never seen the war first hand
Agreed. Every time I go outside our compound, I see the effects of war. Every vacation I take for the rest of my life will be on a beach getting served drinks.
