Listening to Eminem’s “Recovery” CD it dawned on me that the main appeal of Eminem and to a certain extent hip-hop in general is that people from disadvantaged backgrounds, without emotional or family support are able to achieve magnificent things. With people with superior education, talent and ability failing to reach their goals it makes me wonder what does the achieving underdog have which puts him so far ahead. The answer is the will; this is what gives such individuals their personal power.
Success and failure are not overnight phenomena, it about action, it’s about following through and giving 100%. It’s about successfully following through and training at home, making that professional contact and breaking personal limits. Only this afternoon I was on the phone with the operations manager of Armourguard and the ambulance service explaining about Krav Maga and how Indomitable Mind Body Combat Academy is working to create safer community in Rotorua.
