Let me upgrade you

imagesCA75G8D7Are you stuck in a rut and want to take yourself to the next level? Do you feel like you are ALMOST where you want to be but need that final piece? Maybe you just realize that it’s time to upgrade your life a little bit!

Beyonce & Jay-Z said in a song that they could upgrade each other. He was a millionaire rapper, and she was a millionaire singer but together, they have UPGRADED each other to BILLIONAIRE status. How did they do that? They both HUMBLED themselves into realizing that they were good without each other but could be great TOGETHER!

In order to make it to the next level, you are going to have to STEP your game up! You can’t keep expecting to do new things, running the same OLD way. They say insanity is doing the same things, expecting different results.


What type of cell phone do you have? Chances are that you have an android, smart phone, IPHONE, etc. Now here this; I am betting that 80% of the population will have upgraded their phones since the “touch screens” have come out but are still operating the way they did when the Razors were out (2000) LOL! You got an IPHONE 5 but living the same way, you did when they had the RAZORS out?? That is the problem with most of US! I say us becasue I am guilty of this to, and I have to CHECK MYSELF! If I want to upgrade my life, I have to UPGRADE my life!

When you grab that new cell phone, what do you do with the old one? It doesn’t exist huh? Same rules applies if you are trying to upgrade your life. I am right now, the HEAVIEST I have ever been. I eat real good, I stopped smoking and I have an office at my day job. Point I am proving is, the OLD me was in shape but was a chain smoker, operatiing like a RAZOR PHONE. The new me is the IPHONE 4. I am not IPHONE 5S status yet (I need a gym membership for that) but I am definitely not the OLD ERIC!

Whenever you have that loser state of mind, you need to make a bold move!

We have to set the new rules

Today, I heard the rapper/ business mogul Shawn Carter AKA Jay~Z, referring to the internet as the wild, wild, west. I was thinking how that relates to the world. He also said that “we have to set the new rules” referring to rap music and the internet. I believe we have to do that in regards to our lives in general.

Think about this: If we took that 98% of people who Mitt Romney was talking about during his election, and turned it into 95%, then 90%, then 85%, THAN 80%, HOW DOES THE CHANGE THE WORLD? Everyone says that school is the answer but I’m here to tell you that 74% of the richest people in the world are high school and college dropouts. It isn’t always the answer and for years this has been the blueprint but being frank what we have been doing isn’t working!


I thought when Barack Obama got into office he would change the way the world thought but he can’t do it by himself! We’ll I don’t have nothing to lose so I guess it’s me. That’s right; I am officially campaigning to be the next president of the United States of America. Okay, I’m kidding!

The world needs change and I guess I’ll help and be a cashier!

I’ve learned a lot from live experienced but I have studied the rich and one thing that all of them possess is great time management skills. They don’t waste there 24 Hours a day. They make every second of there 86,400 count. They stick to there script.

With all this technology, they hope we waste time on television, social media, etc. Self-Development is the key to success and the world needs to know that. We need to set the new rules because it’s the wild, wild, west and a complete mess. Let’s fix it together!
