Wyclef Jean: Love What You Do, and Nothing Will Stop You

Wyclef - Nothing Can Stop You

Wyclef Jean talks about the importance of mindset, and says that if you truly love what you do, then no setback will stop you from achieving success.

Transcript:


"Imagine a place, so no electricity, no running water. If there's a kid that's saying that they don't have access to the right things, then that kid will never make it."

"Why do you say that?"

"Do not have that mentality. Do not say you don't have access to the right things because that's an automatic excuse, right? Say that, 'I do not have access to the right things,' because a lot of people ain't honest with their selves about what they really want, so anything you want, you can get, but you have to be honest about it, and this is really what I encourage people to do. In order to be successful at anything, it has to be what you truly love because if you don't love it and you ain't willing to die for it, don't do it, right?

"Sometimes, you have to do these transitional jobs to get to where you have to go to, but it's okay. If you got to sell bedsheets, sell these bedsheets. Do what you have to do. Do it with pride, but at the same time, do not let any job that you do kill your dream because the only thing that can make you feel alive is your dream. Very important. You have to make that decision and say, 'I'm going to do this.' Not, 'I'm thinking about doing this.' That's why I say you have to love it.

"Do you love it as much as you would die for it? Because once you do that, then that, anything that you're thinking about, whether if it's writing a book, whether if it's creating an invention, whether if it's flying through the air like LeBron, anything, if you love it, you're going to be that because if you fall down and every time you fall down, you get back up and you keep moving, you fall down, you get back up, you keep moving, this is how we'd go from crawling to walking. You fall, right? Then, you get back up. You fall, you get back up. This is life. This should be a lesson in life. We're going to walk. We're going to fall. We're going to fall, but man, once we figure out the balance with the right feet and the left feet, nothing can stop us."

Snoop Dogg is an icon of positivity and peace, but that wasn't always the case. After the "Drop It Like It's Hot" gangster rapper faced felony charges and 3-year prison sentence he decided to make a change. Slowly but surely, Snoop Dogg traded in the "guns, drugs, and thugs" lifestyle for cannabis and a lucrative business partnership with Martha Stewart. But decades later it seems his past is coming back to haunt him. In a shocking interview, Jada Pinkett-Smith confronts Snoop about Tupac’s tragic death. She asks the questions no one dared ask: Why did Snoop and Tupac have a falling out? Did Snoop betray Tupac to save himself?

When it comes to raising kids, most parents would agree that they just want to raise good, kind humans who treat others with respect and empathy.

So when situations involving bullying arise, parents want to think of their child as the defender (at best) or an innocent bystander (at worst).

But what happens when YOUR kid is the bully?
