Getting to the bag is all fun and games until the person you’re with doesn’t understand the meaning of getting to the bag. Getting to the bag is not just about the money but securing the bag so you can take care of you and the people you care about. Not only that, securing the bag is about making sure the bag doesn’t run out and then you’re left wondering why you’re broke and can’t help the people you care about. This is not to say that you should live your life about money. This is saying that don’t go through life living without a plan, executing the plan and spending money on bulllshit that you don’t need.
People get money confused and thinks about getting the bag but to spend on things they never used to have. That’s not what money is about but it’s to be secure. You should not let money control you because once it controls you, it has its way of changing your mental, physical and spiritual into a darker state. Everything on the inside before you get a bag is full of light and it shows through the exterior. People get money and spend it on jewelry, clothes, “hoes” and cars. Why not invest and build a legacy? You’ll take care of the future generations to come. This is also advice for the Black community because a lot of us were conditioned to work for someone all of our lives instead of being taught to use the stepping stones to create our own. That’s only point one though!
The second point here is that going to the top can be lonely because sometimes the wrong people stop you from growing. You have to stay away from people who complain, don’t take accountability for their actions, and can tell you about everyone else but themselves. Often times the closest ones to us can’t come with us because they are too used to the old us and they can’t take that we’re getting out of that comfortable space. As I have heard before and mentioned to you all, sometimes you have to be uncomfortable to be comfortable. These same people who are comfortable where they are can’t come with you because they don’t know that getting to the bag doesn’t require too much but in fact you have to work extra hard to get where you need/want to be. Don’t fall victim to losing the bag because someone else wants you to stay down with them. PERIOD! That’s all folks!
