Black Thought

james baldwin 2“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

James Baldwin

The knowledgeable gentleman is reconciled with the reality that anything worth the attempt of transforming could ultimately result in failure. Nevertheless, the very real possibility of failure does not deter or dissuade him from focusing his efforts to bring about change. He understands that change is not fully realized when absent an active catalyst. Please note: Fruitful, bountiful harvests are not born to barren soil. Work must be done. And so, if a gentleman desires to see a difference, he must ultimately commit himself to making a difference. A gentleman must steel his resolve and confront what needs to be confronted, failure be damned. So, the question for you is: What do you want to see changed, and just exactly what are you doing about it?

Black Thought

George_Washington_Carver“In these strenuous times, we are likely to become morbid and look constantly upon the dark side of life. We spend entirely too much time considering and brooding over what we can’t do, rather than what we can do. Instead of growing morose and despondent over opportunities that are shut from us, let us rejoice at the many unexplored fields in which there is unlimited fame and fortune to the successful explorer.”

George Washington Carver

It is important that we approach life with a positive attitude and outlook. Life can be intensely stressful and tends to narrow our focus on only the negative aspects of life. Think of the many awards that can be reaped if we transfer negative energy into more constructive avenues that are beneficial to our physical, professional, and spiritual being. Don’t hesitate, there is uncharted territory awaiting to be discovered. Realize the potential in positive thinking and discover success yet to be reached.
