“ Victory is reserved for those who are willing to
pay its price”.....Rickson Gracie
Everyone wants success but, not all are willing
to do what is necessary to achieve it. Why is
that, let's look and see if, we can arrive at a
SOLUTION or better yet and explanation.
With the Rise of the Entrepreneur, opportunity
and competition continue to explode for those
who are driven to achieve success. This is so,
because the myth of financial safety in the
traditional job has been DEBUNKED and both
Social & Economic Darwinism are the now the
reality. Adjust or Die, the old ways that are
unproven don't apply because technology has
changed the game. NOW, the question are you
ready to change and if not then, you will be like
the masses who yearn for victory but, more
comfortable complaining about those who
adjusted and achieved it.
For example, the largest retailer in the World is
Amazon and guess what, they don't own a single
Retail Store selling their products or services. Oh
yes, the E-tailer generated 61 Billion Dollars in
revenue (2012) but, operates football size stadium
warehouses. So, it is a new game with different
MINDSET needed to win; otherwise, you as an
entrepreneur are operating a Non-Profit Agency
and guarantee your arrival in the MLM Cemetery
for DEAD DEALERS. Sounds delightful doesn’t it.
Unfortunately, many of TODAY's youth and
young adults have been educated in our
Social Justice Warrior and Politically Correct
Post-Secondary Institutions and have developed
and embraced what is called the Entitlement
Mentality. Needless to say, the drive for
excellence and victory isn't viewed with the
same degree of admiration as it did in the past.
It's no longer about rewarding individual
achievement but, rewarding All Participants
so as to AVOID feelings of failure and/or inadequacy.
Now, Liberals, Social Justice Warriors, Feminists
and GOVT, have advocated and achieved major
change in the society, policy and Law to the detriment
of society with this worthless philosophy. We see
the entitlement mentality most frequently in social
welfare spending (Welfare Benefits); however, it has
also, invaded amateur Sports.
Now, James Harrison, Linebacker with
Pittsburgh Steelers, recently addressed this
issue (Entitlement Mentality) when he returned
two Participation Trophies given to his sons
for “showing up” in an athletic competition
although, they didn't earn them.
Clearly, James Harrison is Old School and
best to hear his words verbatim, “I came
home to find out that my boys received two
trophies for nothing, participation trophies!
While I am very proud of my boys for everything
they do and will encourage them till the day I die,
these trophies will be given back until they EARN
a real trophy”.
“I'm sorry I'm not sorry for believing that
everything in life should be earned and
I'm not about to raise two boys to be men
by making them believe that they are
entitled to something just because they
tried their best...cause sometimes your
best is not enough, and that should drive
you to want to do better...not cry and whine
until somebody gives you something to shut
up and keep you happy. #harrisonfamilyvalues".
James Harrison's rejection of Tokenism or Handouts
is very important not only for his sons' personal
development but also, racially. Although his sons
are Biracial (legally & genetically) in the real world
they are BLACK and will be judged by different
standards from their Caucasian peers. Affirmative
Action in amateur sports for young Black men can
only lead to disaster and fortunately Mr. Harrison
has stopped and highlighted the destructive nature of
Liberal Social Engineering that continues to promote
mediocrity. I applaud James Harrison for his intervention
and his actions are best summed in the following quote.
“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he
acquires but in his integrity and his ability to affect those
around him positively”.........Bob Marley
If, one looks closely YOU can see how the
Entitlement Mentality has and continues to
negatively impact society as indicated by the
way it has infected our children. If, you want
the best out of anyone but especially, your child
then, I assume you teach them to love the work so
they, recognize the importance of WORK and EARN it.
Yes, the Old Work Ethic still holds true because it
enhances creativity, innovation, discipline and
commitment towards achieving a goal and more
importantly, success. Very Simple, very Basic and
very effective because it isn't Politically Correct.
Unfortunately, Political Correctness is a CANCER
that continues to grow and DESTROY societies with
increasing social problems that require SOLUTIONS.
Let me say, “GOVT Profits from Problems and Special
Interest Groups sabotage SOLUTIONS because
Dependency is their ideology and more importantly, their
source of revenue..need I say more.
It's clear the GOVT wants future taxpayers so it can
Grow and Control the masses; however, how you do
you do it? Well, if you incentivise the masses from
doing their best then, you develop a more docile and
dependent citizenry that shuns success and embraces
mediocrity. Ever notice when you give away Free
Goodies to people they become complacent over
the course of time. Yes, that's the idea Reward for
Participation and NOT Success. When you can
Manipulate or Control your target's thinking then,
you have Won and the target is mindless automaton.
So, what do we do? “No Man is FREE who is not master
The above quote is straight forward and is part of
developing and maintaining a Millionaire, Champion
or Success MINDSET. The meaning and benefits are
clear because those who want to achieve success in
business need to start with Cleaning their own house.
