Knowledge Is Power – Study Motivation


there are a few people in this room that
know what is like to be in a situation where everything in your flesh is saying
give up and yet you’re in a situation where
sometimes you’re standing not because you are so strong you just don’t have
any other option you just you’re just backed in a corner you know and you you
it’s not that you didn’t think about quitting it’s not that you didn’t
fantasize about quitting it’s not that you didn’t dream about quitting it’s not
that you’re so tenacious and so strong but life has got you crushed in a corner
and you simply cannot let go of anything and you have to stand there in the
middle of the storm and keep pumping your head with the faith to persevere
and just say just just hang in there just don’t give up just don’t give up some kind of way you’re going to get
through this great people are people who don’t cave in they’re not people where
everything goes right all hell can break loose and there’s still something down
inside of them if it says I’ll never give up they’ll never take me alive I’ll be
fighting I’ll have a knife in my teeth and a rag around my head and I’ll be
coming at you so what do you do when you fall down get
back up everybody knows to get back up because if I start walking I’m not gonna get
anyway but I’ll tell you there are some times in life where you fall down and
you feel like you don’t have the strength to get back up you so sort of
put a mask on your face when you come to school and pretend that everything’s
okay when it’s not and you go home and lay in your bed where no one’s looking
at you when you don’t have to impress anybody and you’re yourself
and fear comes in you know the fear that you have as soon as you walk into the
doors of your house maybe there’s a broken home maybe you have doubt in your
life maybe you don’t know if for sure what’s going to be happening in the
future and it scares you maybe about maybe you’re worried about what people
think of you what people say about you just that fear paralyzes you and I just
want to ask you today do you think you have hope because I tell you I’m down
here face down and I have no arms no legs it should be impossible for me to
get back up I mean you go home and tied the legs and arms of your brothers and
sisters and like push them down and see how long it’s gonna take him to get back
up you know what I mean you know you can tell them that you’ll see them tomorrow
you know what I mean but this is the thing it should be impossible for me to
get back up but it’s not you see I will try 100 times to get up and if I fail 100
times if I fail and I give up do you think that I’m ever gonna get up no but
if I fail I try again and again and again for as long as I try it is always
that chance of getting up does that make sense
and it’s not the end until you’ve given up and just the fact that you’re here
should persuade you but you have another chance to get back up there’s still hope
I’m not here today to tell you that I understand your pain I don’t know how it
feels to be abused I don’t know how it feels to feel quote
fat and you’ve got an eating disorder I don’t know how it feels to have a broken
home I don’t know how it feels but I know how it feels to have a broken heart and I
know how it feels to be alone and I want you to know that I found my strength in Jesus
Christ and you’re gonna find your strength in whatever you find it in but
I just want you to know that it’s not the end it matters how you’re gonna
finish are you going to finish strong and you will find that strength to get
back up like this see the hustle man somebody sent me a
wonderful sign one day it was like a sign that goes in front of a house
that’s for sale it says the dream is free the hustle is sold separately and
that’s so true man you never see you can never give up you don’t ever know where
God is just waiting on you to pass the test but but you have to stay with
something and go through the test to get to the end see so you can;t get if you
quit there’s no way you’ll ever know you have to keep putting one foot in front
of the other even if you don’t know what it wait it’s
not your job to know the way it’s just a job to believe that’s what people and
that’s up as people you try to figure it out show me the scripture that tells you
to figure it out where’s that scripture there’s no scripture that tells you to figure
it out it tells you to ask and believe that what you got to do ask God for
something then believe in it and now if you gotta be willing to hustle because the hustle is sold separately now
is the dream for you dream all day long but the hustle sold separately it’s hard
changing your life it was hard when just over three years ago in the Penobscot
building in Detroit Michigan where I was operating my business and I fell on some
hard times and I was sleeping in my office
it was hard coming into the lobby and the security said excuse me Mr Brown can
we see you for a moment and I said yes and I walked up to the
counter and he gave me an envelope and he said would you mind reading it here
and I opened the envelope and the envelope was from management that said
this is an office tower it’s not a hotel please do not sleep in your office and I
said excuse me sir I said I just work long hours in creating my business I’m
an entrepreneur and right now things are bad for me but they’re not going to be
this way always and I just asked for the opportunity to continue to operate like
I’m doing I’m not trying to make this my home and it was hard coming through the
lobby and sometimes they would laugh there’s a guy talking about becoming
successful and look at him he’s bathing in the bathroom upstairs on the 21st
floor he sleeps on the floor him and two other dreamers up there look at him
it was hard ladies and gentlemen coming to speak to people and I was facing
financial difficulties in my own life I was behind on my bills and my dreams and
I’m saying to them you can live your dream it was hard ladies and gentlemen
it was very difficult to pick myself up each day believing that I can do it
there were times that I doubted myself and say God why why is this happening to
me I’m just trying to take care of my children and my mother I’m not trying to
steal or rob from anybody how did this have to happen to me
it was very hot and here’s what I want to say to you for those of you that have
experienced some hardships don’t give up on your dream no one could have
convinced me by holding on by continuing to push forward by continuing to run
toward my dream that one day I would have my own talk show it’s a long shot
ladies and gentlemen from Liberty City an abandoned building on a floor never
knowing my mother or father it’s a long shot
being here with you today in this dome in Atlanta it’s a long shot
no college training labeled educable mentally retarded but I kept running
toward my dream don’t stop don’t stop don’t stop running towards your dream the best way to maintain a habit is not
to expect yourself to follow it at all times
number two is to simultaneously recognizing that adherence to habits
ebbs and flows the problem the mistake that people make is they say all right I
had this diet I just digressed therefore I should just throw it all out and I’m
going to eat cookies for the next six months because I had one cookie and I
think that is is flawed on a lot of levels there are tools you can use like Lift which I’m involved with which was incubated by the Twitter guys that’s obvious
but ultimately the the last point I’ll make is one new habit at a time the best
way to avoid abandoning new habits is to only adopt one at a time and one of the
issues with cooking this will be my last point so when people say I want to learn
how to cook they’re typically trying to adopt five or so new habits at a time
grocery shopping prep cooking cleaning of course you’re gonna fail so just
picking picking one at a time try to make the new habits earlier in the day it’s a lot easier to take a habit that you’ve already created and that’s
already running and kind of move it a little bit later in the day than it is
to create a new habit later in the day so for example if you want to focus
your time and uninterrupted blocks start by focusing the first hour of your day
in an uninterrupted focused block every single day where you’re working on
something important make it a habit make it a ritual

  1. 6 months have been following you, and 6 months you're helping me. I'm loving this stuff so much, espcially after a hard day in which I felt lonely with friends & people surrounding me…

  2. Thanks so much for watching! And if you haven't already please subscribe and hit the bell button (next to the subscribe button), it helps me out a lot.

  3. This video is very inspiring. The nature of power is great. Power facilitates cohesiveness and unity in the society.

    Power has an impact on the peopleโ€™s politics, knowledge, financial, organisation and other activities, therefore, bring about a lifestyle for the people.

    There are problems in power, they come about as a result of the actions of the persons in power in that what they aim when in authority.

    I used an embed of this video http://yodaquotes.org/becoming-a-jedi-leader-through-knowledge/ to help illustrate the idea that knowledge is power.

  4. Knowledge is power.

    Power is knowledge.

    Power comes with a great responsibility, and great responsibility comes from reaching advanced maturity from many different experiences, challenges and lifetimes of the soul's initial journey back to the Source or God – in what you call "The Universe."
