What set Tupac apart from the rest? What made him great? Can you learn to have the qualities that made him great?
I wanted answers to these questions.
So of course I coughed up the extra money and took my girl out to go see Tupac’s movie All Eyez On Me on opening night, also Tupac’s birthday, Thursday June 15.
I gotta admit I never researched Tupac that much in the past but two major things stood out for me that caused me to have more respect for the man.
Tupac Was Unbreakable
Tupac seemed to be getting hit from all sides at any given time, from a young age we see police brutality against his family, then his own business partners and even women not to mention any random hating stranger.
No matter how many times he got thrown in jail or how many times he was shot he kept on with the music.
People give up on their dreams for things much smaller than getting shot at but Tupac kept pushing forward no matter what came his way.
After watching the film I felt a surge of inspiration within me.
Tupac Fed His Mind
I’m sure you recognized the actress that played Tupac’s mother from The Walking Dead, Danai Gurira.
She did a great job in the movie and although Tupac’s mother had her weak moments one thing she did right was to teach her children to think for themselves, read and feed their minds.
Tupac was really smart, he knew how to reach people by speaking their language and just being plain honest within his music.
Anytime you want to do something real with your life expect a lot of resistance to come from all over the place but don’t let that stop you!
Believe in yourself and know that you will have to persevere before anyone else will believe in you, sometimes even your own mother or spouse won’t even believe in you at first.
I’m going to recommend this book to you, it’s a quick and easy read.
The War of Art
I’m currently in the middle of reading it but it’s really good so far it explains resistance and all the forms it can take within your life, it’s important to know these things so that we aren’t fooled by it and you can beat it to reach your full potential.
Just thought it would be a good place to start if you want to be one of the greats like Tupac Amaru Shakur, R.I.P.
