Experience Matters

  Experience Matters I love this story because it stresses the power of experience. The mother is looking over her chicks and raising them up and from her bag of experience she not only taught them a powerful lesson, but also those of us who read the story. The moral of the story is “Self help is the best help” which is a powerful statement on its own, but the lesson I learned from the story was take time and learn from your elders. The lark in the story through observation had learned the ways of man. Through her observation she knew exactly when to flee. Even though her young ones were ready she knew that they had time to put more weight on, and eat before it was too late. This type of experiential learning is not only a lesson for the young, but is also a lesson for the old. Are you an elder that can present the young with good advice because you have truly observed the world and participated in it. Are you giving sound advice to the young so that they can build up their mental libr

No Halfway Dreams

  No Halfway Dreams Introduction The mind is the key to success. You can be the strongest person in the world, but if you don't believe in yourself, your dreams will stay just that—dreams. I've been through many battles with my mind and body, but now I'm coming out on top because I know when to give up and when not too. In this article, we'll go over tips for staying motivated and achieving your goals through hard work and faith! The Mind is the Key The mind is the key to success. The mind is what keeps you going, day in and day out. The mind is what keeps your motivation alive when things are tough. And the mind is what will get you through those tough times, no matter how tired or depressed you may be feeling! Putting in the work What separates the great from the good? The difference between a half-way dream and a fully realized ambition is putting in the work. When it comes to changing your life, there’s no substitute for hard work. That doesn’t mean that you have to

Practice & Play Your Position

Practice & Play Your Position Introduction Leaders, we need to practice and play our position. In 2020, the definition of a “Leader” has changed so much. Everyone seems to call themselves a leader these days. How many times have you heard someone say “I’m not a leader”? Yet somehow people who consider themselves not a leader are leading entire teams! They are managing budgets and have reports on the org chart that report to them! I feel like the term leader needs to be defined again! Leaders don’t sit around and wait for things to happen. Leaders make things happen. You don’t have to do it all. Remember: you don’t have to do it all. You don’t have to be the lead and play every single position on your team. You can play one role in a variety of ways, and that's perfectly fine! Don't worry about what other people are doing, or how they're playing their positions—just focus on the best way for YOU to play YOUR position. You can’t do it all. You can’t do it all. Focus on wh

  Creating, living, & Defending The Best Life Great Nia: Peace Fam! Before we jump into this article I want to make sure that the readers understand how this system works, With this system the goal is to expand the way that we look at the Nguzo Saba, Each principle has to be explored through all of the other principles, that way we can create discussions, get new ideas, and develop a deeper understanding of our principles. Sometimes it appears to me that we allow these principles to lie stagnant for 358 days, and in late December pull them out of their holding pins and celebrate. Not here!!! At Gye-Nyame Journey we have discovered the power behind these principles and have figured out how to use them in building community, and that goes farther than just being able to memorize the meaning. We have constructed a 7 week cycle wherein you can sharpen your skills through looking at the principles through the other principles, and spark the creation of a new understanding that you can u

Create Your Work

  Create Your Work Great Ujima: We are here to talk about using our Kuumba to create the thing that we do to make a living. We have to begin to use our Kuumba to create our work. We have all these marvelous principles waiting to serve us, but we are too busy serving others to realize the power that we have at our disposal. Combining the principle of Kuumba with the principle of Ujima as we get to do on this day gives us a look at the true power of this combination. The angle we will hit today is creating a system in which we are able to work for ourselves and serve the community at the same time.  “Join me today on Ujima in creating the new, meaningful and fulfilling careers for yourself and your family” We have talked about the importance of living a systematic life (verse from AOTL), but now let’s look at constructing a system that can work for us, rather than selling all of our time to someone else’s system. Right now most of us are involved in building up other peoples lifestyle at
