Daily Word: Start With The Man In The Mirror!!!

AllHipHop Staff

Happy Wins-Day, my agents of Change!

Welcome to the day you take responsibility for your world! Today marks the 54th birthday of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson! As we commemorate this special day, we are dedicating today's Daily Word to the man/woman in the mirror!

Michael Jackson was an international star who had substance in his music. From popular songs about race relations, to songs about world hunger, Mr. Jackson used his platform to make a change in the world. "Man in the Mirror" was no different. If you listen to the lyrics, it is a plea for everyone who wants to see the world change for the better to begin with themselves!

Many times, we hear people complain about how crazy the world is and how much bad other folks are doing, but if everyone who had time to complain stopped and looked in the mirror to ask themselves what are they doing to make it better, then we would begin to see change immediately! Do not become the spectator who is simply talking about the game; become a player who can affect which direction the game goes!

Logic, the English language, and the dictionary may say something else but Change starts with U (You... Get it... Never-mind... lol). Effective immediately, you need to begin to look at the person in the mirror, and ask him/her what is he/she doing to make them and the world better! If you are not comfortable with the answer, make sure you change immediately! It's never too late to live the life that you expected! It starts today! It starts with YOU!!!
