In part 2, I break down the dangers of “going with the flow” when it comes to who you hang with. Influence is everything...and you’re always being influenced (or doing the influencing). Too often we simply go with the flow, when instead we should be making deliberate boss-like decisions to decide who to invest our time with. In this episode, I break down my philosophy, mindset and strategy to build a dynamic power circle and grow at a fast rate.
In classic “rant” style, I share with you a groundbreaking method of thinking, and one that not many people have adopted.
CAUTION: This episode is not for the soft hearted, I do not temper my language, thoughts, or reality laden advice. Proceed only if you are ready for a cold baptism in reality... #UpOnGame
Most people, when confronted with obstacles, retreat, make excuses or try to advance without acknowledging there is a problem. All of these methods of dealing are foolish. In this classic Jay-Z track, he shares exactly what he does when there’s a “drought”.
In this 4-part series, I break down what I would do if I could do it over again…. that’s right, turn back the hands of time... these are habits and actions I would take to ensure I was at the top of the food chain in every jungle I was ever in.
Instead of regretting and sulking, I am evaluating ruthlessly to identify my own mistakes, and share my practical gameplan to learn from mistakes to evolve at an even faster rate.
In case you didn't know, I have another powerful and infectiously-motivating podcast called “Get Ya Mind Right”. In this episode, I share with you a brand new Get Ya Mind Right series called “Philosophy of a Killa”.
The implications and impact of COVID-19 on athletes and entrepreneurs alike cannot be argued. Leagues are shutting down. Businesses are tapping out. This storm is changing plans for so many.
The question is this…. When the storm is over, will you be ready? Or will you then magically start to get ready? If that's your plan, I feel sorry for you. In this episode, Kobe breaks down his mindset towards big obstacles like these, and why it’s so crucial to stay ready.
You are clear on your mission, and pieces are starting to come together. You’ve got a plan, and it's exciting. The reality hits: this might take a while...
And it will. As time goes by with little results to show, you begin to get more and more frustrated... and the pressure mounts. You know you need to be “patient”, but it's hard to get to the right headspace.
In this episode, I break down the reasons for this (and more importantly) how to strike that correct balance between pressure and patience.

Once you start reading a lot, accomplishing more, and experience higher levels of success, a new danger arises... you begin to think you know it all. Arrogance floods your judgement, and you begin to ignore the fundamentals that got you where you are.
One of those fundamentals is consistency: the ability to show up, day in and day out, regardless of the circumstances. In this episode, I share a clip from the book "3 Feet From Gold" by Sharon Lechter, where she helps illustrate the power of this fundamental within powerful clarity. #Bars
When you are in the infant stages of your vision, there is a certain aggressiveness that must be present. You have to be able to bully your way into the game, and exhibit a brash confidence that is uncommon. In this track "Ground Zero", Juelz Santana points this out. However, there is also a patience that comes into play, knowing that you are not going to settle. This is the challenge. Harlem rapper Juelz lays out his philosophy, and I dig deeper. #BARS

Reading, learning and consuming new information is important. You've heard me talk about the game-changing effect that books have had on my growth and success, and I am confident the same is for you. However, with the increasing ease and convenience of learning, we now have a new problem. "Am I reading too much?" "Am I taking enough action?" "Is the balance good enough?" "How do I balance the learning with the doing?"
In today's episode, I share my philosophy on learning, and how to balance it with the necessary actions towards real progress.
If you want to accomplish real results at the highest of levels, there is a reality you must embrace. This reality, is your complex and misunderstood motivations. It matters not what your motivations are; what’s crucial is that you know what your motivations are.
In this episode, I share a clip from one of my favorite books of all time written by, Maxim magazine founder and multi-millionaire, Felix Dennis. He speaks with clarity and his wisdom is rooted in reality….enjoy. #Bars
Too often I see aspiring and ambitious high performers who claim to want to be the best, but do not commit to mastering the game like the greats.
Do not be fooled; the ones you admire don’t just talk. What distinguishes them is their commitment to mastery, and in this classic Lil Wayne track, he illustrates this point beautifully. #Bars
Most people are soft. They lack courage, and hesitate to ask for (yet alone, demand) what they want.
I do not wish that for you. I want you to be more savage and ruthless towards life, and create a reputation and standard for yourself that says “I know who I am and what I want. I get what I want from life, and I refuse to be stopped.” In order to create that mindset and standard of action, you must work at it. Humans will default towards cowering under pressure unless held to a rigid code of ethics. In this episode, I break down 4 game-changing habits that will lead to a more savage and ruthless attitude and mindset.
I bet you’re used to looking for ways to improve, holding yourself to a high standard. Or maybe you take a step further, and beat yourself up mentally when you make mistakes or live in constant anxiety due to your desire and need to win.
No matter how extreme your drive is, the challenge that comes with being a “killa” is that balance...finding ways to feel good and validated, without it leading to complacency. Today is another episode of “Killa Mode”, a form of aggressive, active meditation that primes you for absolute Killa mode.

In this day and age, it is difficult to make choices about what products to use for your hair, skin and body. Not only are there a million brands to choose from, all of them claiming to be the best, there are far too many brands that use ingredients that harm you and actually create more problems than they solve.
I recently came across a line of body care products that has me daily rejuvenated, smelling and feeling fresh, and has me getting compliments daily from my lady. In this episode, I put you up on game….Four Kings Only, a line of body care products that is all natural and made for men.

The emotion of anger is often misunderstood. Most run from anger, in fear of alienating people, or doing something they regret. Instead, they opt to “fake” positivity, or sulk in sadness and helplessness.
What Malcolm X suggests, is to channel the anger into constructive action. It is within your power to use anger to generate the personal power to create results... however, this remains up to you. In this episode I break down a clip from a classic Malcolm X speech where he illustrates the practical use of anger and how to use it to win your own revolution.
