Give It My All

Subscribe to my YouTube Channel

The inspiration from this song came from when I was in a really dark place in my life. I had just went on a crazy crime spree all for the purpose of trying to earn some extra money to pay my bills. Some would say I went about it the wrong way. Others will say I did what I had to do with the resources I had at the time. None the less I was reaping what I had sown. While in that dark place, I had promised myself I would bounce back even stronger and give it my all to get through the battle.

Mindset Shift

Going into my teenage years, I developed a mindset thinking the whole world was against me. Maybe this came from racism or having my father jump in and out of my life or even being in numerous fights that had nothing to do with me. Regardless, I had become stuck in a mindset that caused me to live in my comfort zone rather than embracing my true strengths.

If you have ever felt betrayal from the people who were closest to you then you understand how hard it is to trust and let your guard down. This had become the norm for me. I think it held me back from a lot of positive opportunities.

I can remember one time, a well known local basketball coach had asked my mom to see if I wanted to join his basketball team. He saw me play basketball. When he saw me, he was impressed by my hustle alone. No, I didn’t have the skills yet but my hustle is what caught his eye. I can remember pulling up to the gym and I was about to go into the gym. In my head, I was absolutely terrified to get showed up by the other players. Also being laughed at was a big issue for me. I was so scared that I changed my mind and told my mom I didn’t want to do it. This is something I regret very much. Along with becoming a good basketball player, I gave up the chance to bond closer with other players.

What I’ve Come To Realize

Have you heard the saying Everything happens for a reason? The wiser I get, the more I can see this as an absolute truth. No, I didn’t go on to become some famous sports player. I sure as hell didn’t manage to make the right choices concerning the legal system. What I do realize is this: with everything I have been through in my life, it strengthened me in ways that have really helped me to connect with so many other people who go through the same struggles.

I know so many people in my life who struggle with anxiety and stress. I cannot totally say that I have cured my stress and anxiety. What I can say is that I have learned so many ways to cope with the stresses and anxiety that were developed from my insecurities. What I want you to understand is this: stress and anxiety normally comes from one main thing. You’re worried too much about the bad things that could happen.

Conclusion

There are two main things that have helped me to deal with my insecurities and my anxiety. The first thing is prayer. Some may call it meditation, others call it positive affirmations or whatever. It’s like you have a mindset that is telling you that you cannot achieve something. Along with you telling yourself that, your family and the people around you are telling you the exact same thing. This leads to total uncertainty.

The main thing that I am learning about life is that it’s a spiritual warfare. You have to keep reassuring yourself that it can be done when people are telling you that something cannot be done. Not everyone has the same vision. Sometimes there are things placed on your heart that probably shouldn’t be shared with anyone but you and your higher power. When you are bombarded with reasons why you cannot do something, it’s your job to speak life and positivity to yourself.

The second thing that has helped me to overcome my issues is education. That’s right. Educating yourself through reading and listening to people who have already been down the path you are going through is huge when it comes to being successful. Like they say, there is nothing new under the sun. Although it may seem like you are the only one going through your issue, trust me, there’s always a solution to whatever problem you’re trying to solve. This is how I’ve been able to stay out of trouble and stay on the path that I am on now. I set my mind to something and I absolutely give it my all.

 

 

 

Give It My All

Lyrics

Verse

Spark it.. Its ’bout time I step out of the darkness

For the longest, I been kinda livin’ heartless

My attitude was fuck it like Mr. Marcus

Now I’m still screamin’ fuck it but in another way

Staying positive and not carin’ what the gutter say

Crazy how they trippin’ now I’m goin’ the other way

They¬† just mad and stuck on stupid, that’s what my mother say

But anyway, if you ain’t knowin’ I ain’t stoppin’

My stamina’s unlimited, I keep that pussy poppin’

Somethin’ compared to the energizer bunny

I keep going, going, and going like a paradise, I’m sunny

Families what I’m about.. Get cheddar like a mouse

Made mistakes, but I’m gettin’ better, that’s without a doubt

I was on a crash course but now I’m on another route

If you talk a lot of bull, keep my name out ya mouth

But I guess, if it makes you feel better keep talkin’ shit

Cause I’m gonna keep climbin’ on my Peter Parker shit

I show the Bulls what the mailman shoulda done

Cause now it ain’t about me, I do this for my little son

Hook

This is what it is

I’m just handlin’ my biz’

I been weatherin’ the storm since I was born

And Ima give this all my all

Cause it ain’t one drop of the word quit in my body

Too legit to quit, that’s my hobby

All I keep is kick like karate

And give this all my all
