Let's Just Work Together. . .

I wondered and wondered and wondered, this Friday past, what the one on one experience would be like when I met with a particular BLACK person in authority.

I quickly found out about one minute into the conversation. It was another "Crab in a Barrel" situation. I decided that the meeting would not last long and I decided to not go on any further with it. I humbly and respectfully ended the meeting in less than three minutes and exited the room.

Honestly, it frankly didn't bother me, what the person thought after my actions. I had decided for some time now, after many other "crab-in-a-barrel" experiences, that I would never waste my time sitting or standing and letting some other person pull me down, or pull down my idea. Allowing that to happen, would not help to advance me, so I refuse to let it happen!

So should you!

At 24 years, I've faced countless "crab-in-a-barrel" experiences. At first, I used to think that EVERYONE  loved my plans and was excited about helping me achieve them. How foolhardy! I not too long after noticed that that wasn't so.

I met these "crab-in-a-barrel" experiences



. . .in BUSINESS!

and the list goes on. I won't go into detail here. Maybe one day when we meet face to face, I'll share some with you to help prove that YOU CAN OVERCOME!

What is sad to note though, is that in nearly most of life's experiences where I would have needed a helping hand, a word of encouragement from someone experienced, or just a tap on the shoulder - MANY  TIMES, it NEVER came from my Black Race.

MIND YOU. . .there were and are those who did and continue to be DIFFERENCE MAKERS and TOWERS OF STRENGTH  in my life. I BLESS GOD for them. Note well though, they are few and so I becareful - very careful as to the MOTIVES of those who claim to want to help or encourage me.

I stopped what I was doing at around 10:36pm (Sat. 4th Dec. 2010), as the thought crossed my mind and so I decided to add to my BLOG.

Many other races are working together and moving on. It's time for the BLACK RACE to do the same!

When last have you read stories of BLACK PEOPLE, who started out small and now are successful?

When last have you heard of BLACK PEOPLE moving from RAGS to RICHES. From Poor to Happy and Financially Comfortable?

There are many who've closed their ears to the NEGATIVES and decided to push. Let's clothe ourselves with that spirit. We can do it!

After all this writing. . . the word to all of my readers. . . if you still don't find the support you need. Don't Stop Pushing. If you meet up with the "Crab-in-the-Barrel" spirits, still keep on trying to reach the top.

Like the energizer bunny. .  .Keep going and going and going. In the LONG RUN.  . .SOMEDAY . . . SOMEDAY SOON. You'll make it! Dare 2 Be Different!
