You know who doesn't have a self-esteem problem? Big Sean.
Well, I could safely say that most rappers have an extreme sense of confidence. They are always spitting rhymes of how great they are, or rather, how much better they are than their counterparts.
Currently, I've been listening to Big Sean's album Hall of Fame. On his main track, "Nothing is Stopping You," he rhymes his usual bravado. However, at the end of the song his mother (or what seems to be his mother) starts talking over the beat. She says,
"I know you're not my child talking like that. Focus on shifting the negative energy, into something positive and the easiest way to do that, is to be grateful for all the things that you do have. For your health, for your family, your friends, all the people that care about you. You've got food to eat, you've got a place to stay."
Cool right? Honest right? And so, it's this week's mantra.
If you don't feel good, go with the gratitude. Get happiness through appreciation. Perhaps even listen to a rap song, or maybe just call your mother. She'll set you straight.
