Dear Blackman,

What is your best advice for lethargy in life relationships and motivational passion to pursue worldly goals?


The Black Man:

Hi VH,

My first suggestion is to create a list of your goals so that you have a guideline and time line for achieving them. Second, you should create a team around you that can help you achieve your goals and keep you motivated.

For example, if your goal is to be a millionaire then you should start associating with  people that know how to make money. Even ask someone that is a millionaire if they are willing to be your mentor. Most people who are successful in something like to share their experience and knowledge with someone who is trying to achieve what they have done.

No one can achieve something on their own so it is always good to establish a good team. Make sure to have that person(s) that can motivate you when you are in that lethargic mood.

I also  feel it is important to have people that are not afraid to tell you the truth even if it hurts or oppose a view that you may have. It is not good to have a bunch of “Yes” people in your camp. It may take a while to form your support group but when you do the sky is the limit.

It’s not always an easy road to reach your goals but if you stay focused, have patience and do not give up your odds of success improve significantly.

I hope this helps.
