Quickie & Coffee- Focus on Your Direction More Than Your Origin

Where you are from means a whole lot less than where you are right now.  The former was the result of the accident of birth.  The latter is the result of your conscious choices and your deliberate design.

Where you have been means a whole lot less than where you are going.  The former is frozen in time and can never be changed.  The latter is unrestricted and can be changed at any moment at your sole discretion.  Legendary MC Rakim made it plain when sizing up the competition in a NYC rap battle royal

“Even other states came right and exact cuz it ain’t where you’re from it’s where you’re at.”

Rakim nailed it and so can the rest of us.  Placing our focus and emphasis on where we are today and where we are going tomorrow is a winning  move for more reasons than need to be recounted here.  Just know that your hometown and your background is just your starting point and you played no role in it’s selection.  Whether you love it with pride or hate it with shame or land somewhere in between you can relax and recognize that the people you meet today are all about Rakim’s perspective:  They are focusing on where you’re at.
