Speaker 1 (00:00):
Here we are, guys, our last break of the day
on this Tuesday.

Speaker 2 (00:05):
It's been a good day. And uh, well, you know
we talked about a lot of stuff might lead to something.

Speaker 1 (00:16):
Say it again, Steve.

Speaker 2 (00:17):
Anybody got any questions might lead to something?

Speaker 1 (00:21):
Well, I did want to ask you. We talked about
Megan thee Stallion earlier and you kind of made a.

Speaker 2 (00:26):
Joke about it.

Speaker 1 (00:27):
You know, she talked about her workout routine and all
of that and what she does, and you kind of
made a joke about it about you know, don't try
to other people out there, don't try to do what
Megan does and think you're going to look like Megan.
But but I mean, I think what you really wanted
to say undertone of that was be the best you

(00:48):
you can be.

Speaker 2 (00:49):
Well, a deeper lying meaning when I joke around like
that is even like you know, I think people I
think because of social media. I think because of everybody
always making comparisons and this person flexing and that person flexing,

(01:10):
and then like the old saying was keeping up with
the Joneses. Yeah, I think people forget that you have
a chosen path for yourself too. I think people give
up on their chosen path. You know, it's sort of
really funny. Man. I was thinking the other day about
a relative of mine and when we were younger, man,

(01:33):
he was incredibly talented. I mean, man, this dude man
could draw anything. I mean anything, man, when we were kids.
I mean his pictures of people. He actually drew people.
While we was drawing stick figures, he was drawing people.

(01:55):
You know, when we were making that little side view
of a car, he was drawing full fledged cars at
angles with tires, with the wheels turning, and the details
on the cars were incredible. I was just looking and
he took a pin one day and drew a picture
of Huckleberry Finn. He had went rabbit hunting and he

(02:17):
was holding the rabbit by his ears. He took a
pin and put these dots and drew this picture but
in dots. I watched this guy man, and I marveled
at his gift, in his talent, and sad to say,
he never used it. He never pursued, he never used it.

(02:41):
And then I watched another relative of mine who was
related only by marriage. It is my daughter in law's brother.
This guy was doing some art for me one time.
Because he could draw. He was so talented of an artist.
He does tattoos too, and he did his own tattoo

(03:03):
on his arm. He did his own tattoo, and then
he did a piece of art for me that I
liked one time. And then he was getting married and
he fell on hard times and he came to me
for some help and I helped him out a little bit.
And then one time we were talking and he said, hey, man,
do you have a job for me? And I said, no,

(03:26):
I don't. He said, hey man, you didn't even think
about that. I said, I'm not going to give you
a job. I said, because, man, you have a gift.
I've never seen anybody other than one or other relative
I had, who can draw like you. I said, man,
why don't you pursue that. That's a great gift you have.
Well that was about seven years ago we had this conversation.

(03:51):
He just presented Rocky, I mean he asap Rocky and
Rihanna a piece of art that he had did for them.
He has done Kobe Bryant pictures. He has done pictures
for so many people. Now he's came back and done
more artwork for me, And all of a sudden I
realized he used his gift, he followed his path. The

(04:15):
biggest injustice you can do for yourself is not to
follow your path. I don't know how my other really
relative really feels. He's retired from his job now and
everything you know, and he never used at God given gift.
And I often wondered, man, what would he have been?
What could he have done had he followed his path?

(04:39):
I just I never understood why he didn't pursue it.
He just didn't have it any to take the chance.
I guess he just didn't have it any to foster
the belief in hisself. I don't know what it is,
because for me to not follow my path, it's just unthinkable.

(04:59):
JUST don't know what I would do if I didn't
follow my path, if I didn't chase my dreams, if
I didn't use this gift. I don't know what that is.
I am suggesting and employing everybody out there, use your
God given gift, because he gave you a gift. If
your gift is not tied to your job, if your

(05:21):
job is not tied to your gift, you better start
pursuing it sooner or later, because these people are gonna
take your job from you. Age gonna come take you away.
You're gonna retire. Something gonna happen. They gonna close a plant.
If you have a gift, Now, if your gift is
teaching and you're teacher, you doing it. If you are

(05:42):
If if you're a first responder and that's your gift
helping people, police officers, firemen, you know, EP and medical, magical,
emergency people, that's your gift. I got it. Tie your
gift to your job. But if your job is not
tied to your gift, man, stop sitting there and watching
your path get away from me. Man, Follow your path. Man,

(06:07):
It'll be such a rewarding life for you, and it's
never too late to do it. Man, But don't sit
there with this gift God gave you and do nothing
with it, because I just don't know what that ends
up for you. Those are my close remarks today. I
just want that to encourage somebody, man to follow your path,
chase your dream, use your gift. Those are my closing remarks. Hey,

(06:29):
y'all talk to God today. He would absolutely love to
hear from it.
