On our latest segment and the last show of an amazing 2011 season of LET IT BE KNOWN LIVE RADIOthe temperature of the show was on FIRE. As we continue to bring content and dialogue that is "True Life", intensely we had to go at who wears the Pants in a relationship, marriage or any union. The conversation sparked tremendous perspectives from our constantly charged panel and listeners. We may all agree that the roles of both Man and Woman are sometimes cloudy and undefined through the lack of understanding which only leads to a high level of confusion. However, when there is clarity it truly diminishes the possibility of one person being burdened to assume dual roles...... Listen here and enjoy the Podcast

On our latest segment of LET IT BE KNOWN LIVE RADIO ............ this show was certainly on FIRE with many perspectives as we addressed the obvious and figurative aspect of "Pulling up our Pants". The cause and effect has been induced from the lack of direction and leadership from our adults, parents and general collection of support. This obvious plague of inappropriateness is a mere reflection of how we see ourselves, across the board we need to tighten up our belts and do better overall. The changes that we so urgently need begin with us discussing it and following up with effective action. Check out the podcast here and you will be delighted and entertained with the dialogue .....

In each of our lives, we all come across many personalities in many people. We grow into these rapports, friendships and associations all by experience.  These interactions quickly educate us on one important factor; that people will either add or subtract from our lives. Which leads me to my point that in those processes, we will constantly come across two different types of people; a taker or giver. We all want to be in a position of receiving because it feels good to get something from someone. That part of us is an acceptable selfishness that is innately in us all. But I think we would agree that there is nothing more disheartening than having to deal with someone that just wants to take...take....take. Sadly, we are all surrounded by these individuals. Again, We are all looking for something in return to balance off what we are willing to give. If you have endured the people that don't know how to give, it will force you to worship those that give and provide from the sincerity of their hearts without any conditions attached. 

Some of you may have this special type of person in your life and don't even know.... so I will help you identify them; Takers are inconsiderate and spineless with their methods in order to get what they want out of every situation. Some of them are not even aware of their doings while most of them are the least bit concerned with how they are perceived. Initially, they seldom come across as the "using" type and often give off a very sincere persona. They are usually loners and have very little friends for obvious reasons. The sad part of this all is that they may never understand the importance of being reciprocal in their exchanges because they are not receptive.

The question is.....How do you protect yourself from being used and abused by this individual? First, you have to simply be mindful of your surroundings and dealings. What happens to you will only happen if you allow it. There are times that we all get so consumed with interacting that we forget to pay attention to details. There is absolutely nothing wrong with sizing up everyone that you allow into your world and determining what purpose they are serving. Why not? they do it to you. Ask yourself, is this person going to be conducive to my growth and if not, why should I even bother. Remember, people that have the right intentions will do the right things and that will be defined with the access that you grant.  Now that you have this embedded in your mindset, when you do come across a taker you will already know to keep your distance!

On our most recent segment of LET IT BE KNOWN LIVE RADIO ..........we addressed the misconceptions and power that titles evoke on all of us. Society as a whole is driven by titles and those same titles can dictate the overall respect that one is given or not. They tend to not mean nothing if someone doesn't step into their role responsibly. One thing that we had to address was how in the Black community we have taken away the importance of both Mother and Father by downgrading them to "Baby Mother" and "Baby Father". In their usage, those terms will usually constitute a single person with children or a person with children that is in a non-marital relationship. As the show continued to flow with substance, we brought up many titles that are contributing to the regression and setback of the people. Listen back to the podcast of the show and feel free to provide your comment

On our latest segment of LET IT BE KNOWN LIVE RADIO we had a real live one with the topic discussion surrounding the commercialization of "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday". There was a time when we focused on family, love and tradition instead of the superficial drawback of the hype. Living in a time of regression and recession, the consumer spending that shouldn't be has made most of us desensitized from what is really important. With priorities in the wrong place and money being spent that hasn't even been made yet, our panel had alot to say on this one......... Listen back to the podcast here:



I wanted to share something really quick with you all in terms of possessing an open mind. You'll never know what can open up your world to countless opportunities and rewards if you are not open. I truly believe that an open mind is usually attached to an open heart. Once you are receptive to being receptive it naturally brings possibilities and probabilities into your life. If you carry this openness it will transcend to your faith and hope which will only broaden your beliefs. It will also force you to understand that what appears impossible is really possible.  

On the other hand, by being closed minded you are refuting what could potentially be and what can work to your full advantage. You will never know what could be if you knock down everything before taking it into consideration. Not only are you doing yourself a disservice but you are most likely shunning a blessing in disguise—one that was tailored just for you. By exerting this type of behavior we become our own oppressor. Remember, we are all presented with options that we're forced to make a decision with either an open or closed mind.  

Be mindful that what's for you will have different ways of finding you. BE OPEN!
