Be More Like Lebron

To say the least, Lebron James has had a tough couple of years in the NBA. He was considered selfish, unhumble and arrogant, to the point where many people disliked him. Even though he was making his way to the top, it was all for the wrong reasons.

Now after realizing that having that kind of mentality would get him no where, he admitted his faults, he learned from his mistakes, and he gave looking at the world differently a chance; and what did it bring him this year, his first NBA Championship and his second USA gold medal.

Now what does this have to do with us, us women who are trying to make a difference in their community, us women who are trying to be the next Sarah Jessica Parker, and us women who are trying to find a man to marry?

It ties in a lot, If we want something in life we can't rely solely on ourselves to get there, stepping on people’s back to get to the top will eventually make you fall ALL THE WAY back to the bottom. You can be well known in life, but if it isn’t for the right reasons, it doesn’t mean a damn thing!

Us as women need to fix our attitudes, we hate on each other so much for NO REASON AT ALL. When we see a woman doing the right thing, instead of congratulating her, we bash her (ummhmmm Gabby Douglas). How can we succeed together if we don’t like when one of us actually makes it?

Relationship wise, it’s nice to have a list of things we want in a man, but we are getting A LITTLE TOO shallow now, he has to be 6’8, nice straight white teeth, Bentley truck preferred and six figured REQUIRED! PAUSE! Before you ask God that, ask yourself do you have that? How you still staying at your mom house, driving the same car you got for your sixteenth birthday and asking for “a 6 figure ni**a by the name of jigga” lol?  REALITY LADIES, instead of asking for all of these material things, we need to ask for a man of God, a man that’s going to respect you and yours, family oriented, wants to live right by one woman for the rest of his life.

So just like Lebron, we need to change our mental thinking, change the way we look at things, and work together so we all can make it to the top. We can do it ladies! We have to, because if we don’t, we will just continue to destroy each other.
