Inspire the Youth to be Greater than You
The future relies on us to inspire the youth because the key to the future lies in their hands. Our very future and the course it takes relies on our ability to inspire them. The problem we face is the many youth that are unable to see the greatness they possess.
Based on their upbringing and the environment they were dealt in, many are unable to see pass their circumstances. As a result, their goals and dreams are close to non-existent. With that, a great opportunity presents itself for us/you to feed them with the fuel necessary to create the unthinkable.
History tends to repeat itself. Therefore, those that are able to see success tend to believe the possibilities of it. But for those that know nothing more than the struggle are unable to see anything past it. How can one create something they’ve never seen or believe in something they don’t believe exist?
History has repeatedly shown the ability we have to overcome all obstacles. In other words, many have used their circumstances as a drive rather than a defeat. In doing so, their journey has been able to inspire the youth to see the limitless they possess as human beings. Nipsey Hussle said it best when he said, “The best thing you can do for a person is to inspire them. That’s the best currency you can offer: inspiration. So, when a person can rely on you for that, that empowers them in every realm of their life. Being inspired. It empowers them in their relationships, in their business, in their art, in their creativity. It empowers them because without inspiration, you’re dry.”
WHen You Inspire the Youth You Change the World
Fortunately, Nipsey not only spoke these words but through his own initiation, spoke them into existence. His mission to inspire the youth went further than just words. Through his project Our Opportunity, Nipsey not only wanted to inspire the youth in his community, but he wanted to inspire the youth nationwide.
On March 31, 2019, although we lost our King Nipsey Hussle, his mission to inspire continues to live on. His words and presence we can never forget. Thanks to his business partner David A. Gross and his team, his initiative lives on. Everything he ever envisioned continues to manifest itself through his team and their will to keep his dream alive.
The truth is it was their common vision that brought them together. It was their mission to inspire that started it all. So my question to you all is, what are you doing to inspire the youth? What are you doing to bring change to the world around you? What are you making of your struggle? How can your lost be used to bring a gain to others?
You’re never too low to lift the youth and you can never lack enough to give. Because every seed that you plant has the ability to not only grow but it also has the ability to branch off. Each branch creates an extension of inspiration that can reach the many youths that yearn for an alternative. In the words of Nipsey Hussle, “Spoke some things into the universe and they appeared/I say it’s worth it, I won’t say it’s fair/Find your purpose or you wastin’ air.” May your purpose inspire, bringing a sense of hope to the youth.
