Success is like Suicide

I was reading through my wife’s blog and came across one entry she posted a few months back and thought it was great!  It talks about changing the world and the sacrifices that are needed to be made to make it happen.  In the blog, she refers to a line that Jay-Z throws down on a track with Coldplay.  Here are the lyrics:

With the same sword they knight you
they gonna good night you with
and that’s only half if they like you
and that only half that they might do
Don’t believe me, ask Michael
See Martin, see Malcolm
See Biggie, see Pac, see success and its outcome
See Jesus, see Judas
See Caesar, see Brutus, see success is like suicide
Suicide, it’s a suicide
If you succeed, prepare to be crucified
Media meddles, niggaz sue you, you settle
Every step you take, they remind you you’re ghetto
So it’s tough being Bobby Brown
To be Bobby then, you have to be Bobby now
And the question is, “Is to have had and lost
Better than not having at all?”

goes hard, huh?  Here’s a link to the video.  Check it out, but moreover, be inspired!  If you’ve got big plans in life (which we all should), be prepared for people to try to bring you down, but don’t let that stop ya!
