Live your Dreams

We want to teach our children to be honest, good and contributing members of society don’t we? But as soon as they get old enough to make critical decision we lie to them about what to do with their future.

Each of us in born with a unique gift to give something to the world. We rarely nurture that. Instead we promulgate the lie that all they should do is get a GOOD JOB or something that makes GOOD MONEY. Its like giving someone an aspirin for every ailment.

That’s what my father told me. A good job was defined as whatever got me out of his house and on my own. I took the gist of his message and left home at 17.

Now as a father that have actively participated in my childs’ life, from the cradle to college I have a choice. What did I tell my son yesterday?

I had to fight the impulse to repeat the crime. I said, “do what you love. Get a job to sustain you. Pay your bills but don’t let that job define you. Don’t get sucked into working at a job you hate to go to, be at, with people you don’t like, can’t stand just to make good money.

I was explaining this to my mother and she agreed. Now that she is retired and living on her own, she regrets a lot of the things she has never seen or tried for herself.

We live in a great age where you can make money in a niche serving other unique people.

You can’t be all things to all people and shouldn’t be. Be true to yourself. Don’t settle. Its not too late to try again. Don’t be satisfied with just existing. Strive! Challenge yourself. Grow, be consistently learning. You don’t even know all that you are capable of being. Don’t be afraid to fail.

A good job is your job. Where you are the boss. Good money is money you have earned through your creativity. I love the stories of entrepreneurism in the gun community.

Some make guns, ammo, holsters, and some hunt, support and offer services.

I love sharing these stories, tragedies and triumphs. I like encouraging you to live your dreams. It doesn’t make money right now but I am hoping it will.

I love the people in this community. I love you for listening to me. I am asking you to keep going. I don’t care what you do whether its trainig people, making bracelets, posters, websites, or whatever. Go for it.
By being in this space, I now know hunters, tour guides, teachers, preppers, lawyers, doctors, scientist, competitors, clerks, retirees, and everything in between. You know me because of what I do here. It’s a beautiful thing. Don’t stop believing in yourself.

That is what I told my son. If you get stuck, move. Advance. It doesn’t have to be big steps everyday.

Pick your verb; go, do, create, make, learn, teach, run, walk, gun, or help.

Then you’ll be doing what I am proud of. Don’t chase your dreams, catch them. Then you’ll be happier. Then you’ll be successful. And tomorrow when I forget this remind me because I am trying my best too.

Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t. -Jerry Rice

Gun Control Is Not New

The Urban Shooter Podcast #310


Happy Friday.  On this episode I actually released a second version today.  Bones sings a Sam Cooke classic that is a theme of the show, and our country.  I have a lengthy interview with Raquel Okyay writer from HumanEvents.com.  Barbara Baird shares her thoughts on Crazy Uncle Joe. I salute the men and women my http://facebook.com/blackmanwithagun1  family felt has done something for us fighting for our rights this week.  Some of them have been us.  I give a quick thumbs up to a movie I saw called Snitch .  There is a joke and a Aesops fable in there somewhere.  I also mention the Tenth Cavarly Gun Club, a predominately African American gun club I started.  I gave the history of it, my failings and how the new group is doing great.  http://MDTCGC.org.   I make a plea for my American Gun Owner web series for financial support.  http://Kennblanchard.com/kickstarter and ask all writers interested in becoming members of the community gun blog to send me their articles and questions.




 It’s been an interesting month.  I have been hustling and doing all the pro-gun activism I can since we are under attack.  The month of February has been the most I have appeared anywhere.
