WHEN LIFE BREAKS
I was miserable in my life I didn’t like waking up I ain’t have no purpose I didn’t know what I was supposed to be doing on October 8-1985 I walked in a comedy club for the first time signed up for the following week.
A girl took me down there she said you got to go comedy club you the funniest person ever met I never even heard of comedy club i was 27 I walked in to the comedy club i signed up for the following week I m gonna sit here and learn.
I know I was funny I just didn’t know what to do with it they had 10 acts go up I didn’t laugh at one joke I was just sitting there just Man I wish that was me man they should be said this every joke they told I knew the punch line be fore they said it and I wrote a better punch line in my mind what they should be said it got to guy number to they colled his name he was not there said well he’s not here we gonna go to next week list.
Steve Harvey where are you? Long story short I was amateur night that night I won $50 it was a 45 minute drive to my house with this girl named Gladys I cried 45 minutes she said what are you crying for? It ain’t but $50 I said no no you don’t even understand I was born to night I now know what I m supposed to do I when to work the next day October 9th and quit my job with $50.
I had nothing I just never give up I’mma tell you something that decision cost me everything I had I lost everything i lost my family I cost friends lost everything be come homeless I live in a car for 3 years but I just saw this I saw this vision I just pursued it I said how that it you have to take chances in life.
Life is about risk if you play it safe in life you ain’t gonna have much of a life if you play it safe you won’t have much of a life.
If you play it safe you won’t have much of a life life is risk it takes courage to pursue your dreams.
Now it’s gonna cost you something most people are not willing to pay what it costs to go after your dreams cause you gonna have to hurt a little bit and most people don’t like being uncomfortable.
If you don’t want to be uncomfortable please do not pursue succes because success is a very uncomfortable feeling and I just learn to be comfortable being uncomfortable.
Life is hard for every time you have a plan a dream an aspirations or a goal do you know what happens every time you have one of those?
This thing comes along called life it happens to every body life it happens to every body life has disappointments it got peak and valleys you gonna lose somebody you care about I day that a valleys some body gonna close the plans you thought I was gonna stay open so you could retune that a valleys some body gonna fire you for an unjust cause that valley the people that got your credit card gonna sell their company gonna sell their business to another credit card company.
Your 18% go up to 26% you don’t even know why now your minimum didn’t change course it’s life you can stop thinking that life finna be easy cause I got news for you it ain’t that’s a false hope to think your gonna have a wonderfully care free life that unthinkable we all live in this bubble what you gotta do you gotta put more air in your bubble you got to blow your bubble up expand yourself take your self out of your comfort zero do no live in your bubble put some more air in your bubble if you stay in your comfort zone that’s where you will fail you will fail in your comfort success is not a comfortable procedure it is a very uncomfortable thing to attempt so you gotta get comfortable being uncomfortable if you ever want to be successful start putting some pressure on put some pressure on yourself get out here and get about it.
Look I did love to auger coat this thing for you I’d love to tell you look you can go out here and get rich do a couple of things that ain happening you gotta get real doggish you gotta get down.
Right funky if you want to make it now like I was telling you before if want to be ordinary you are not even got to.
Listen to me just go on about your business if you think ordinary is cool are not problem it’s some really really wonderful ordinary people. But if you’re sitting in this room and you have extra ordinary aspirations then you gonna have to do extra you put extra on top of ordinary and you come up with extra ordinary capabilities all of you you.
You have to decide if you are willing to do the things to put you in the category.
