They become discouraged and dejected. You cannot get to a new place holding on to old ideals that hold no real value. You must be willing to reassess your thinking and your attitude towards life. Everybody hurts sometimes. We all walk down the familiar streets of pain, loss, disappointment and rejection.
Many know all too well that awful feeling of being a victim. But you are supposed to walk down those streets of pain, not make them your home. You must move through the pain or you will find yourself parking your life on Pain Street, not Main Street. Do not allow your inner you to convince you that your problems are bigger than you, because while you may be your biggest problem, you are also your greatest solution.
You are responsible for the words you feed your mind.
A meal of negative ingredients produces negative results. Understand that life stands in support of your best intentions, whether you believe that or not. It has a unique way of impelling you towards something better.

Steve also discusses some of his preparation tips for life on and off the field. How do you plan on maximizing your personal growth?
Yes, it involves some struggle, but this is the way you build your strength. The question is, are you willing to do what it takes to shift your thinking?
Unless you are willing to shift, you will remain in the state of staying the same, replaying that same old soundtrack of pain. Change takes courage, commitment and confidence.
Begin by accepting that you have the most power to empower your life. Nobody has more power to affect your life than you. Many give in to believing that the world is against them, yet they are usually most against themselves. You have full authority over your life and over the challenges you face.
It all depends on your state of mind. At your darkest hour of despair, know that life is there with you; inviting you to think a bigger thought about what is possible now, in this moment. Be honest with yourself in facing the pain of your past — not as a means of remaining a prisoner of your past, but as a means of setting yourself free from the past. If you miss the message then the mess becomes a habitual lesson.
Supporting yourself means seeking to make peace from the tattered pieces. More than this, it means feeding your mind positive talk. You are either your best friend or your own worst enemy.
No matter the size of the challenges you face, it is no match for the size of your inner power. However, there are other ways to secure a loan like borrowing from friends and family.

Another popular dishonest act involves the contract that is entered into by two individuals who decide to have sex. Each time two individuals who are capable of reproducing engage in sexual contact, they are initiating a contract to become procreators — this is comparable to two individuals entering a contract to start a business.
The white man plays no role in that. Moreover, there are other non-white groups that the system created by the white man is not set up to benefit that are using workarounds to navigate the system and benefit. Asians come to mind. I am told that Asians have their own system to lend money to members within their group. The system is based on trust like any other relationship. Asians value their word — it is their bond and so their word is sufficient as collateral. In the video, Farrakhan did not hold back. He spoke the truth about having dishonest character and how that keeps one in a state of oppression.
He called on individuals to evaluate themselves rather than pointing fingers at the white man.
You have a greater enemy than the white man. Every man has free will, so God as creator is not taking responsibility for your failures.
