Words of wisdom from the OG – Big Snoop Dogg. And I came across this video at a good time as it is very relevant to me right now.

Recently I had a chat with someone who is like a younger brother to me.

For 3.5 years I’ve tried to mentor him and enable him to grow. In these 3.5 years, he’s watched the business and the people within the business grow except for one thing. Himself. He is so entrenched in his beliefs and ways that he is too stubborn to acknowledge his lack of growth despite the growth of others around him.

As a result of the widening gap, he’s lashing out and trying to gain significance. The lashing out and significance is coming at a cost to me – pressure, stress, growth in the business, growth within me and sanity.

While my focus is on growth, I can’t be responsible for his growth and significance. I’ve done what I can by placing him in a certain position within the game, the rest is up to him. This is not an easy one to deal with because the guy is as close to family as a real brother. It is counter-intuitive because your first reaction is to help and continue helping, but that would mean going down to his level and staying there.

I have to stay strong and true to the game. If it were easy, everyone would make it, but I have to allow my path to be defined by the minority, the 1% such as Snoop as he discusses in the video below – the guys who think counter-intuitively or as Apple puts it, the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. And my time and commitment have to be directed to those who rise up and close the gap.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing, you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Have you ever had to cut anyone out in order to continue on the path of growth? How did you deal with it? Comment below
