POWER TO THE PEOPLE

POWER TO THE PEOPLE | Culturational Chemistry™ | Scoop.it
The seductive allure of power can be a dangerous thing. And to quote Mr. Kanye West…”No one man should have all that power”. I don’t typically quote or agree with Mr. West on many things, but this is one case where I do, especially when it comes to leadership. No one man or woman should have all the power.

LIVING THE GOOD LIFE | Culturational Chemistry™ | Scoop.it
One of my first jobs after college was as a cashier at Giant Food grocery store in Towson, Maryland. This was over 20 years ago. I met a young man named Andre Tyler at that Giant, and he became and remained one of my closest friends up until this very day. Dre reminded me of that Giant Food recently and the young Tru Pettigrew that he met there over 20 years ago.

WHAT ARE YOU COMMITTED TO? | Culturational Chemistry™ | Scoop.it
If you’re honest with yourself, then you’ll admit that some of the things that you pursue are because that’s what someone else wants you to do. Those are the efforts that are usually short lived. The areas in your life where you really bear fruit are the areas where you are truly committed. These are the areas where you follow up and follow through. You do the work and finish the job.

Living a Dream is Living a Purpose

Living a Dream is Living a Purpose | Culturational Chemistry™ | Scoop.it
Time and time again we as people are told that we have to face reality when it comes to wanting to live out our dreams. The “Harsh Reality” that is taught to us at an early age is that you more than likely will not live your dream because you will have to face reality. I comment on this topic because I want millennials to understand that your reality is what you make it. Dreams are not only played out in your sleeping state of mind. Dreams can become reality through persistence and hard work. You are living out your dreams during your daily life when your idea career or goals have become part of your daily routine.

Just because they don’t agree, that doesn’t mean that it’s not true. They don’t have to agree for it to be a good idea either. The reality is… the proverbial “they” have been disagreeing with the truth and hating on good ideas since before you were born. That’s their job.

WHERE IS THE LOVE?

WHERE IS THE LOVE? | Culturational Chemistry™ | Scoop.it
“Blessed be those who are paid to do what they would do for free” –Anon Growing up we are taught that the key to life is happiness, but we’re also taught that we have to be successful financially, spiritually and physically. Some people believe that you have to sacrifice what you truly love to be successful. However, in many cases, you do not have to give up what you truly love to be successful. The greatest successes come from embracing what makes you happy.

What is Presidents Day all about? As far as I can tell, it’s either a celebration of George Washington’s Birthday, a combination of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln’s birthdays, or a collective celebration of all of our U.S. Presidents throughout history. It may have started off as a celebration to honor the man known as “The Father of this Country”, but now it really depends on what state you live in. So what is Presidents Day all about to you?

“Practice makes perfect”. You’ve al heard that phrase before. Malcolm Gladwell does a good job of illustrating the importance of practice in his book Outliers. In the book Malcolm discusses his 10,000-hour theory that states that it takes roughly 10,000 hours of practice at something to master it. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I do know this…
