There are two ways that a person can walk in this life. You can either walk into your blessing or walk into your curse. How can you do that? You can do that by doing things that are natural for you to do. Success at anything is not by chance or by luck.
It is seeing things you have already been doing brought to fruition. Therefore, successful people are not surprised by their success. They actually knew it would happen before it happened. The blessing is the reward for a life of integrity and commitment to achieving goals and setting standards. What is the curse? It is all the negatives that we curse our lives with: the negative friends, the negative conversations, the negative situations. An unsuccessful person who continues to put himself or herself in those situations, in those conversations, and around those people will bring a curse to their lives that they will never be able to shake. I am grateful for the friends and the relationships that I have been blessed with in my life. They have helped me to overcome all the obstacles of life. And that is what any man needs, incarcerated or free—people who believe in him when no one else in the world does.
