I actually think it’s true that some people with the right race, gender, wealth, have it easier than others, it’s just how our society is. It’s just the way it is, and ignoring that would be misunderstanding how structures of power work in North America. HOWEVER, I also came to realize that there is a difference between RECOGNIZING AND UNDERSTANDING the structures of power and LETTING THEM DETERMINE HOW FAR you could go. Big difference. I chose not so long ago, while I understand that as a poor disabled woman of color, THERE WILL BE MORE OBSTACLES in my way, that I ALSO HAVE other cards that i could use to push tru, and that these struggles ARE ACTUALLY what makes my skin thicker and make me more likely to succeed.
I think this nuance is very important, because understanding where you stand in the matrix of power AND YET be so stuburn that you don’t let it define you, that’s the real deal right there. That’s what makes freedom possible for disadvantaged communities.
Glad you liked it Victor. 🙂 Thank you very much for the appreciation and for watching! #BelieveNation #BTA603 Shine
Thanks for that terrific video full of incredible power and knowledge, Evan!
I love this video. Sometimes, there are reasonable explanations for problems, but they become excuses in the end if no one seeks solutions for those problems.
My favorite clip is the one of Gary Vee. Taking the glamor away from being an entrepreneur and stripping it down to what it really is… hard work, dedication, making no excuses, taking responsibility for everything that happens to you, + understanding that the world owes you nothing. As an aspiring entrepreneur and someone who struggles daily to find the energy to keep pushing it’s nice not to hear the fairytale version of success and the muddy gritty real version instead.
good video, good inspiration

Gary Vaynerchuck – he summed it up perfectly and identified an excuse I was making subconsciously. And He’s right, starting a business is hard, and entitlement is killing us.
Ben Carson is an idiot. Funny to see him in this video

Gary’s clip was soul wrenching… i felt my excuse monkey leave my head and hide behind my legs
making excuses, even if it’s mostly to myself has become a Big problem for me, this is a good vid, making me more aware of the fact that making excuses for my life being such a mess is what made it a much bigger mess
what stood out for me is the world owes me nothing
