“ Victory is reserved for those who are willing to pay its price”.....Rickson Gracie

Everyone wants success but, not all are willing to do what is necessary to achieve it. Why is that, let's look and see if, we can arrive at a SOLUTION or better yet and explanation.

With the Rise of the Entrepreneur, opportunity and competition continue to explode for those who are driven to achieve success. This is so, because the myth of financial safety in the traditional job has been DEBUNKED and both Social & Economic Darwinism are the now the reality. Adjust or Die, the old ways that are unproven don't apply because technology has changed the game. NOW, the question are you ready to change and if not then, you will be like the masses who yearn for victory but, more comfortable complaining about those who adjussted and chieved it.

For example, the largest retailer in the World is Amazon and guess what, they don't own a single Retail Store selling their products or services. Oh yes, the E-tailer generated 61 Billion Dollars in revenue (2012) but, operates football size stadium warehouses. So, it is a new game with different MINDSET needed to win; otherwise, you as an entrepreneur are operating a Non-Profit Agency and guarantee your arrival in the MLM Cemetery for DEAD DEALERS. Sounds delightful doesnt it.

Unfortunately, many of TODAY's youth and young adults have been educated in our Social Justice Warrior and Politically Correct Post-Secondary Institutions and have developed and embraced what is called the Entitlement Mentality. Needless to say, the drive for excellence and victory isn't viewed with the same degree of admiration as it did in the past. It's no longer about rewarding individual achievement but, rewarding All Participants so as to AVOID feelings of failure and/or inadequacy.

Now, Liberals, Social Justice Warriors, Feminists and GOVT, have advocated and achieved major change in the society, policy and Law to the detriment of society with this worthkless philosopjhy. We see the entitlement mentality most frequently in social welfare spending (Welfare Benefits); however, it has also, invaded amateur Sports.

Now, James Harrison, Linebacker with Pittsburgh Steelers, recently addressed this issue (Entitlement Mentality) when he returned two Participation Trophies given to his sons for “showing up” in an athletic competition although, they didn't earn them.

Clearly, James Harrison is Old School and best to hear his words verbatim, “I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy”.

“I'm sorry I'm not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I'm not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best...cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better...not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut up and keep you happy. #harrisonfamilyvalues".

James Harrison's rejection of Tokenism or Handouts is very important not only for his sons' personal development but also, racially. Although his sons are Biracial (legally & genetically) in the real world they are BLACK and will be judged by different standards from their Caucasian peers. Affirmative Action in amateur sports for young Black men can only lead to disaster and fortunately Mr. Harrison has stopped and highlighted the destructive nature of Liberal Social Engineering that continues to promote mediocrity. I applaud James Harrison for his intervention and his actions are best summed in the following quote.

“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively”.........Bob Marley

If, one looks closely YOU can see how the Entitlement Mentality has and continues to negatively impact society as indicated by the way it has infected our children. If, you want the best out of anyone but especially, your child then, I assume you teach them to love the work so they, recognize the importance of WORK and EARN it. Yes, the Old Work Ethic still holds true because it enhances creativity, innovation, discipline and commitment towards achieving a goal and more importantly, success. Very Simple, very Basic and very effective because it isn't Politically Correct.

Unfortunately, Political Correctness is a CANCER that continues to grow and DESTROY societies with increasing social problems that require SOLUTIONS. Let me say, “GOVT Profits from Problems and Special Interest Groups sabotage SOLUTIONS because Dependency is their ideology and more importantly, their source of revenue..need I say more.

It's clear the GOVT wants future taxpayers so it can Grow and Control the masses; however, how you do you do it? Well, if you incentivise the masses from doing their best then, you develop a more docile and dependent citizenry that shuns success and embraces mediocrity. Ever notice when you give away Free Goodies to people they become complacent over the course of time. Yes, that's the idea Reward for Participation and NOT Success. When you can Manipulate or Control your target's thinking then, you have Won and the target is mindless automaton.

So, what do we do? “No Man is FREE who is not master of himself”

The above quote is straight forward and is part of developing and maintaining a Millionaire, Champion or Success MINDSET. The meaning and benefits are clear because those who want to achieve success in business need to start with Cleaning their own house.
