first_imgIt’s a natural motivator to know who you are.by: Theresa WithamTo be successful as a leader, you need to be focused. To be focused, you need to know who you are at your core, said Doug Nielson, CSP, MSW, LCSW, author, performance interventionist, coach and psychotherapist, at CUES Symposium: A CEO/Chairman Exchange earlier this month.“At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want,” he said.If your core doesn’t immediately show itself, the following exercise from Nielson will help.There are four value components of your core, Nielson said.Become: In one word, who would you like to become? Write a core statement around that word. Then think of actions that will help you achieve it and when you need to complete them by. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Le’Veon Bell rap album review: ‘Life’s a Gamble’ underwhelms, but does include Steelers reference

first_imgMORE: After Le’Veon Bell signing, Jets’ next move is both simple and difficult”Life’s a Gamble” features 12 tracks with a runtime of 35 minutes.The tracklist is below:1. Lotto2. Talk Of The Town3. Large Amounts4. Free At Last5. She Loves My Drip6. One Of Me7. Addicted To U8. Overrated9. On Me10. Say No More11. Gas On E12. VVSOverall, the album focuses on topics you would generally see in rap — money, women, etc. If you were hoping for some insight into his free agency decision or his situation with the Steelers, you’re not really in luck. He makes a few references here and there, but typically stays on other topics.The only song he really dives into any issues is on “Free At Last.” As you can tell by the title, the song seems to be referencing leaving Pittsburgh after not agreeing to their contract offer or their franchise tag. We’ve posted the lyrics to that song below.’Free At Last’: Le’Veon Bell’s song lyrics[Chorus]I said I’m robbin’ these n—Ain’t got no mask onI did what you couldn’t doI got a backboneOh yeah, I’m takin’ they bagsAin’t got no maskAnd when it comes to this cashI need it badI’m gonna take they money with no mask on (x2)$50 mill, $60 mill, $90 millJust on a dealBut no it’s not a slave dealI’m gonna make them open up they safeI’m just doing what I gotta do to get me paid[Verse 1]No I’m not breaking no rulesI gotta stomach you foolsI’m working don’t need no toolsThey want to do what I doMoney is making me rudeI see that I’m in the newsAnd they not signing me back, butThey got to pay for it tooI got to stay on the moveI got to stick it and moveI’m only gonna speak the truthMy diamonds fresh out the poolI know that my business boomYou want to do what I doI don’t think you got a clueThey got control over youThey don’t want you at the tableThey gonna put you through some bulls— if they ableThey gonna work you and work you and underpay youI told them f— it I’m outtie just like a navalAs for the rest of the album, it’s a definite improvement over his previous work. Bell isn’t a great vocalist so he relies on autotune a little too much, which brings the overall quality of the album down. But it’s certainly not an awful listen if you’re a fan of rap.The album features some pretty good production and has enough variety to make it interesting. Bell shows off some nice flows throughout, especially on the tracks “Talk of the Town” and “Large Amounts.” But, as mentioned, his vocals are limited and he ends up sounding the same on most tracks. Le’Veon Bell released his rap album “Life’s A Gamble” at midnight, minutes before it was reported he will sign a free-agent deal to play for the Jets.The polarizing former Steelers running back has released music in the past, including an EP titled “My Side Of Things” in August 2018. He’s had a bit more free time since then, so Bell had an opportunity to take his musical talents to the next level on this project. He’s also not a great lyricist and the content on the tracks blend together. From a musical standpoint, there’s nothing that makes Bell stand out from your average rapper trying to make it. If he could improve on his lyricism and his vocals, it’d really help his music stand out.The beat selection and production is good and his flows are nice, but he still has some improvements before his music is respected by a wider audience.Rating: 4.3/10last_img read more
