lesson 9

I believe that every harmless person deserves respect. People should treat everyone with respect as

long as you get it back. Respect is a huge key in the way you live and who you are. Respect is

not always given and i understand that, and i have understood that from a young age. People

don't always show it. People have got over on me, and i experienced disrespect when i know

i deserve respect when i didn't receive it. So that's why I strongly believe in people should show

more respect.

I believe that "Your heart is your best compass." this means that your heart is your instinct. You

should always follow it. You should always more than not, go with your first thought. Most people

make their mistakes trying not to make mistakes. I think you should just go with your gut feeling.

"Not everyone is meant to be in your future. Some people are just passing through to teach you

lessons in life." I really like that quote because, it is very true in life to anyone and everyone. I believe

it either will or has happened to everyone. I would advise everyone to be careful of who they put

their selves around because, not everyone is going to be there for you or be your real friend.

I have had fake friends that tried to take advantage of me, but I just take that as motivation and watch

who i hang around. Not everyone is a true friend, you just have to choose right from wrong.

I believe no one should be discriminated for what they act like or who they are or what color they

are. Everyone is created equal, We are all human beings. No one should be treated with

discrimination is what i say. But i see it many places i am.

Lesson 5

  1. Every man has a right to choose his own destiny.
  2. Your heart is your best compass.
  3. I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.
  4. The most important thing is to enjoy your life, to be happy, it's all that matters.
  5. Not everyone is meant to be in your future. Some people are just passing through to teach you lessons in life.

My favorite two are, 2&5.

I chose 2 and 5 because, they are how i have been feeling lately. I think your heart/instinct means alot

to a person and 99.9% you should always follow your heart and what it tells you. Most of the time it

will lead you to good. Your heart is everything and has many meanings to it. 

I think 5 is a prime example because, in the end of your life you aren't going to die with anyone. Its 

only you, Alot of the time you cant trust the closest people to you. You have to be careful for the 

ones you continue hanging around. There has been people I thought was there for me like i was, but 

they stole from me (i went to get it back, but still.) You cant let your guard down at anytime because,

people don't care alot of the time. I learn alot with who i hung out with, and that wont happen ever 

again. I make sure i don't get into trouble, and i do that by playing basketball , doing my homework, 

in the house alot and keeping a tight circle. Another reason i chose this is because, not everyone i 

used to know, is no longer in my life. Im not mad about it, i just be careful on trusting everyone.

One other reason 2 is an example is, your heart should be strong and not worry about the negative 

things around you. You should always do you, don't let anyone turn you to the bad side. Always 

follow what your heart tells you.

Lesson 3

There was a day where Carmelo Anthony had a chance to sign with multiple teams. The teams he 
could have signed with were where ever he basically wanted. But he looked into the Dallas Mavericks, 

Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, or to stay with the New York Knicks. That following off season, 

he decided to re-sign with the New York Knicks and take the full contract with them. And then later

that year, Phil Jackson decided to come back out of retirement. It shocked alot because, people thought 

Melo would want to go to Chicago to get a ring possibly sooner than with the New York Knicks. Plus

the Knicks weren't that good the year before. They didn't even make the playoffs. But he kept his word that 

he wont leave New York after he signed the first contract. The shocking part for Phil Jackson coming back

was that his health wasn't the best, and he didn't stay with LA. The reason many people believe Melo stayed

(including me) thought Phil coming back made Melo stay, because of all the things Phil Jackson 

accomplished in his years with Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant.
