There are too many critics and not enough people that are here for the journey. Pay your dues and stay steady on your movement. If you really don’t have any experience in the game then just keep quiet… keep an open mind because in time your opinion will most likely change. Life is a constant journey with stories and knowledge that one individual will never be able to fully grasp. Just recognize that there are some people that are in our lives that are experienced and close enough to us that will give us criticism to help us get better. Accept your flaws and work on them. If you feel you don’t have any flaws then you’re probably not human. Guidance is always needed. Shit ain’t perfect out here. Judging systems will never be 100% accurate and you shouldn’t ever let it DEFINE why you do what you do. Treat your craft like a painting. Put meaning behind what you do. Take your time and observe what you do. Appreciate your craft, and don’t rush it. Don’t get too caught up with “the crowd”. The ultimate battle is not against anyone but yourself. It can be hard because we’re surrounded with the mentality of being highly competitive amongst each other…. but step back and analyze how you could do better first. You control your destiny. You control your future. You can either work against it or work for it. There is foundation in every thing we do. Build with it, and create from it. Learn it all. For bboying it’s not power against footwork and for djing it’s not selection against technicality. It’s all relevant or else it wouldn’t exist. Life always gives us options to do the right thing or the wrong thing. We can all be great and we can all be better. Know your setting. Let people appreciate you for you. Let everything fall into place and let things come naturally. Patience and timing is key. Think inside and outside the box. Be an influence to the universe, and honor your bloodline.
