Class #12: WHAT GUARANTEES SUCCESS [Audio Version]

Economics is a science; an organized system of activities (some economic systems are more highly organized than others) as opposed to a random series of activities. This will be one of several classes that asks fundamental Economics questions, and answers those questions as simply as possible. The question for this class is, "What guarantees success?"

What Guarantees Success

There are three guarantees to success. There are three guarantees to the successful emergence of Black Power Economics as a force to be reckoned with and respected. Those guarantees are (1) YOUR commitment (2) YOUR input (3) YOUR intelligence. If you contribute as much time, energy and resources as you can with the greatest amount of intelligence available to you, and are committed enough to keep on keeping on for as long as it takes to get the results you desire, then YOU are the guarantee of success. Therefore, you should not judge the progress of Black People's economic endeavors by the results you see, you should judge it based on your input. Why? Because your input is 100% within your control, while results, in addition to taking time to make themselves generate results, will depend on a lot of factors that are beyond your control.

That is why commitment is so important. Commitment will guarantee that YOU persevere, that YOU keep on doing what YOU know needs to be done. As long as you persevere, your energy will impact on all of Us. Black Power Economics will mature and evolve, and Black People will benefit.

If you keep on keeping on, you will eventually influence the uncontrolled variables enough to get the result you seek. All you have to do is keep on keeping on. Don't worry about what other Black individuals do, you can't control them. The only person you can control is yourself, and that is important because YOU are as big a key to success as anyone else.

Individuals who want to do something don't look for guaranteed success, they look for opportunities to promote their agenda. If you or anyone else is preoccupied with guarantees, more than likely, you are not ready to take on the task of advancing a Black Power Economic reality. Forget about guarantees and get yourself involved.
