GetAtMe RealTalk: “You gotta get up get out  and do something”

 

When Outkast first dropped this cut, this became a street anthem in Atlanta.  You know Atlanta parents have always been different (to me) than other parents from other cities.  Don’t get me wrong you had the parents that told you to go get a job, but in Atlanta, it felt sort of different.  I mean for some reason Atlanta and entrepreneurship in the urban community have always walked hand in hand.  Parents in Atlanta didn’t just tell you to get out and get a job.  They said do something with yourself (some of this was because they were tired of looking at you). 

To do something mean’s get something together.  If you have a dream make it tangible.  If you’re a photographer, take pictures.  If you do hair, then go get client.  These parents didn’t care if you babysat, now you have a daycare.  Atlantans (for some reason) always had a hustle.  Maybe it was because a lot of folks relocated to Atlanta to recreate themselves.  Many wanted to be music mougals, top chefs, dancers and performers.  Some would leave their jobs at the Post Office and go to Uptown Comedy Corner and try to do standup (Chris Tucker).  Some kept rapping in the streets and clubs until they were heard (OutKast).  My point is they all got out and did something.

So if you ever feel stagnant, look around at what you have to work with and see who needs what you have (be honest with yourself).  People will only pay you for what they don’t want to do (remember this) or what they can’t do (really remember this).  Make sure when you go out in the world, the world knows you as that person that got them thangz or them moves.  Don’t get mad at takers for trying to get your goods for free, that’s their job (you’re job is to recognize them and disarm them) because usually they lack the talent or work receipts to get their own bread.  So they have to feed off others (their first giveaway is that “Man I’m just out here getting this paper”  always listen for that phrase.  Only takers say things like that.  People who make money say “how are you doing and what’s up with you?”  Why, because they already have made money, they’re not pressed. They didn’t get so far in the hole that when they got money it was on it’s way somewhere else.  Takers have to take because they owe everyone because usually they’re renting their lifestyle.  That’s another blog though.)

GetAtMe:RealTalk- "YouGottaGetBackUp"

GetAtMe:RealTalk- "YouGottaGetBackUp" | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

“ When you get knocked down you

        (you gotta get back up) .”

Don’t stay down.  Realize that if it’s yours then you damn well better go get it.  No one told you your dreams were going to be easy (well maybe Disney did, the whole “you’re dream will come true” thing).  No one told you, you wouldn’t be challenged.  So getting knocked down is normal  (you gotta get back up).

The key is understanding why you got knocked down so you won’t make the same mistake again.  Some people feel that their situation is destined and if they stay positive it will all work itself out.  Their situation might have value but it will never come to fruit if your process is flawed.

You see all projects have potential, it’s their process that will determine their success.  So while you’re picking yourself up from a recent knockdown (you gotta get back up), go over your steps and make sure that you have the best process to achieve your goal  (you gotta get back up).  Remember, only a fool would keep trying the same process hoping for a new result.  If what you’re doing is the truth, then it deserves (you gotta get back up) the right delivery system.

GetAtMe #RealTalk “TurnDownForWhat”

Man todays hip hop is crazy.  Just a minute ago yall was telling us to turn up (yeah I’m getting old) and now It’s turn down for what (ain’t that the same thing as turn up #IJS).  These terms come and go in this day of twitter moments and IG moments.  Social media has created enough catch phrases that have defined a generation.  This generation wants it (or do they really just want to look like they want it hmmmmm.)

This new generation lives life like they’re in a indy race with their lifestyle changing with each lap (#Vroom Vroom).  I mean this new hip hop lives to change.  They have become a society morphers (is that a word? I don’t know but it sounded like it belonged there) and that’s what it is.  They like living life in the fast lane and like they say, why slow up?  Why not live your life to the fullest?  Why not party all weekend in Vegas?  Why not own the world.  And you know what, that’s sort of cool.

I love people who go for their dreams (I’m a dreamer), Steve Jobs was a dreamer.  Bill Gates was a Dreamer, Barack Obama was a dreamer.  Russell Simmons was a dreamer.  Lebron James was a dreamer.  Mark Cuban was a dreamer and Daymon Johns was a dreamer.  You know being a dreamer is not a bad thing to be and it’s really good company.  What all those dreamers had in common is that they “Turned Down” for no one.  They went for it.  They fought for it, worked for it and hustled for it.  At no moment did they see the option of turning down.  So maybe that’s a new success rule, “if you want to be successful turn down for no one”.  Make them be accountable for their pessimism and know that this is your journey and it up to you to Turn Up for your success and opportunities.  So like these folks are saying. “TurnDown4What” and I agree.
