Don't let life take away your endless power. Be happy for this ‘moment.’ This ‘moment’ is your life. When we live completely from the mind over a period of time, we lose touch with the infinite self, and then we begin to feel lost. This happens when we’re in ‘doing mode’ all the time, rather than ‘being mode’ the latter means letting ourselves be who and what we are without judgement. Being doesn’t mean that we don’t do anything. It’s just that our actions stem from following our emotions and feelings while staying present in the moment. Doing, on the other hand, is future focused, with the mind creating a series of tasks that take us from here to there in order to achieve a particular outcome, regardless of our current emotional state. We should be lifting each other up, and cheering one another on. Not trying to outshine, or one up each other. The sky would be awfully dark, with only one star.
Don't let someone tell you that you can't do something. If you got a dream, you protect it. When people can't do something themselves, they're going to tell you that you can't do it. You want something, go get it. PERIOD. The goal is to not get rich, the goal is to live rich.
I've always been a HUGE fan of rap royalty Nipsey Hussle. Nip is an incredible philanthropist and also an amazing entrepreneur. He inspires me on how to run my business as well, by showing me what really "starting from the bottom" was really all about.
I decided to mockup a potential collaboration look for his brand The Marathon Clothing and VANS Sk8 Hi's. I used the biggest symbolism of Nipsey, which is the gang that he always claims when he raps, the "rollin' 60's crips." So I decided to use the blue bandana material, using different types of paisley leaves material that originated from his country, Eritrean. Also used his trademark "Crenshaw" logo script on the back embroided.
