“I’m in the zone, but I don’t need MTV. I need pills, not percs, I’m on NZTs…” – Joe Budden
If you didn’t know, NTZs are the pills that were in the movie Limitless. In my opinion, it’s an underrated movie because besides it being a bit exaggerated, it’s some real shit in between the lines of the film. Mainly letting you know that being limitless is actually possible and you don’t even need drugs in order for that to happen.
Back in September I had an epiphany. It was the day after celebrating my 24th birthday in Houston and I was on a plane going back to Oakland. I had 1 stop that was in LA and all of a sudden I felt an energy that I haven’t felt in quite some time. I think it’s the city; LA just has this feeling of inspiration. So, as the plane took off I realized that I have to stop putting a limit on my mind. Whatever it is I want to do, I have to just do it. Since then I’ve done things I never thought I’d be doing and all of this had stemmed just from me telling myself to be limitless.
I’m not exactly where I want to be in life at the moment, but I know where I’m headed and it can only go up from here. My mind has taken me places I never thought I would go and it’s one of the greatest feelings. I guess I’m chasing that feeling that I got when I was briefly in LA. I encourage everyone to stop putting a limit on how they think because in the end, you’re just holding yourself back. Saying that you can’t or “nah that’s not me” are just a few sayings that will hinder you from realizing your full potential. Hell, I still don’t know my full potential and that’s the beauty of it all. Just because you’re in one field of a profession doesn’t mean you can’t try out another. Only you have say in your life and your validation in what you do should be all that matters.
Part of life is about connecting the dots and that’s what I plan to keep on doing. Nothing can stop me and I’ll be damned if I don’t accomplish all that I set out to do. I want the best for everyone and hope anyone who reads this feels the same way.
