Is The Traditional Educational System Broken? with Black Millionaires & Spectacular Smith - TSE050

We all know the old saying:
"The Education System kills CREATIVITY."

In this interview done by @blackmillionaires_ , Spectacular provides a answer.

What Is the Path to Black Economic Empowerment? with Matty J & Spectacular Smith - TSE048

If their murdering of innocent people actually brought people together in a meaningful way that actually threatened the system, they would stop murdering people immediately. We're asking justice from a system that has shown us time and time again that it has neither the will, nor capacity to protect us or give us any genuine justice. The courts are an extension of the state; the same state that trains and arms the military and police force. They are deliberately making us angry and traumatized. All while our youth kneel peacefully while risking their lives in attempt to gain a mutual understanding from a criminal justice system that has historically and unjustly been making arrest, publicly killing us and letting drugs into our communities.

We can't concentrate moving this way. We can't think clearly moving this way. So therefore we cannot build or unify moving this way. Most of us are looking for a quick fix. No one wants to hear a plan that spans generations. Everything we think about and plan must have future generations in mind.

This is why we should be having and building strong families. Strong families build strong communities. Strong families establish cooperative economics. That's real POWER! #BLM ✊🏾

Authentic Relationships are the Most Valuable Resource for Success, with Spectacular Smith - TSE038

People say that time is our most valuable resource. I would say that relationships are our most valuable resource, but they take time to develop.

One person may be the one catalyst that impacts you or your company in a monumental way. By cultivating trust first, you will set yourself up for lifelong success.

Compassion Isn’t a Soft Leadership Skill. It’s a Crucial Power Skill, with Spectacular Smith - TSE015

"Compassion is the key. While empathy is the tendency to feel others’ emotions and take them on as if you were feeling them, compassion is the intent to contribute to the happiness and well-being of others. Compassion, therefore, is more proactive, which means we can make a habit of it. By doing so, we can counter the loss of empathy that results from holding power, and in turn enable better leadership and human connections at work." - Harvard Business Review (Leadership Article - February 2018)

Self-Esteem & The Process of Mastering Your Craft, with Spectacular Smith - TSE014

“The people at the top of any given field didn’t get there just by working hard. Yes, hard work is necessary, but just as important is being smart about the work you’re doing, and focusing on doing the things that will help you improve.” -Tim Hererra (The New York Times)

It's easy to focus and fall in love with the materialistic end result (the jewelry, the cars, the clothes, etc.) without acknowledging the mindset used by the giants we admire (Jay-Z, Diddy, Nipsey Hussle) that earned the accomplishments we tell ourselves we're striving for. Nearly everyone at the top is hard working, but most people at the bottom are hard working too. Hard work is important to success, but it’s dangerous to see it as the most important thing. So what's more important? What makes one person more successful than the next? It starts with what you value and what you know makes you truly valuable.

Most people don’t like specifying goals because they don’t want to specify conditions for failure. If you keep yourself vague and foggy, which is easy, it won’t be apparent when you have failed.

Having a schedule makes all the difference to having the day you actually want—while simultaneously creating the possibility of a goal-structure.
