They Don’t See The Grind They See The Shine — The GeoGee Experience Magazine — Medium


The title of this post is a quote I lifted from a conversation Damon “Dame” Dash was having on the TV show Music Moguls.

Now considering Dash’s failures one might ascertain Dash is not the one to be quoting in a motivational context.

In his heyday, Dash was worth a reported $50 million, only to descend so deeply into debt (thanks to back taxes, back rent and other outstanding bills) that it ate away at his multi-million fortune.

Given all of that, I’d argue that Dash could offer up some noteworthy advice on what to and not to do to those with their eyes on the prize of success and prosperity. There’s always lessons to be learned from losing just as there are lessons to be learned from winning.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.

  1. You know G,
    I agree with you. You can actually learn something from anybody; and you should! Sometimes people teach you what NOT to do.
    Frankly, even though Dame Dash did take a bit of a plunge, he was able, at one time, to rise to the top. That said, I think that his quote here is very much on point.
    Don’t you remember your elders saying, “Easy come, easy go?”
    How ’bout the story of the hen baking bread? Nobody wanted to help her grow, pick or process the wheat. But baby when the bread was done-everybody was at the damn table waiting to eat it!
    LOL!
    Thanks for reminding us how important it is to ‘put in the work.’
    We gotta learn to drop this popcorn mentality.
    Thanks for another thought provoking gift G!

    1. Thank you Lady G for sharing your always brilliant insights. You are right on point with ‘we can learn something from everybody”.I love the “Hen Baking The Bread Analogy” – definitely a lot of that going on these days.
