Andre' WYZE  Poet📝 Storyteller📜 Filmmaker 🎬 My goal is to help you love yourself so you can change the world & #stayhumble

What if I told you I started a t shirt company 4 years ago and had no idea what I was doing. A brand that would lead me to finding out how important media was and made me change my whole business model (as if I even had one). What if I told you I spent the last year and a half painstakingly trying to find my purpose, or better yet trying to believe in it? What if I told you the camera I’m holding in my hand change my life? What if I told you I took it on a one way trip to Cali with $100 in my pocket this past November just to find myself? All because I have a burning desire in my soul to live a life I’m proud of and not one where I merely followed directions. Since coming back it’s been a roller coaster. Some days have been high, some days low. But the past week shifted something in my spirit. I’ve seen value in myself I’ve never seen and I’m feeling balance now more than ever. Yesterday I got to document the mission of a phenomenal org @build_nyc and got to speak at length with a man who sleeps eats and breathes raising the bar, @garyvee about the youth and the future ahead of them. MONUMENTAL. .

The revelation as of late is that caring what other people think about your journey should be irrelevant to you. These days I own every failure and flip them into a lesson as soon as possible. I do the same with successes. Today is a new day and yesterday’s triumphs are merely today’s foundation for progression. .
.
.
Friendly reminder: Forgive yourself. Be kind to yourself. Don’t rush yourself. Don’t be stingy with your love. Live at YOUR PACE. I believe in you. I love you. Go be phenomenal as you were meant to be. And as always, STAY HUMBLE. .

You are who YOU say you are. .
.
.
Even the people you love can misinterpret who you are. It’s imperative that you know yourself inside and out so people can’t skew your perception. Stay real. Stay aware. Stay humble. I BELIEVE IN YOU. .

“It’s about the fact that we’re treated as problems well before we’re treated as people.” .

I have remained silent about a lot of issues surrounding race and profiling in America. As a black man who went to an HBCU and learned about my history and the psychological ramifications behind it, I’d be lying to say I’m not both afraid and angry for or future as a society. Hatred and disdain rule the current narratives in the news and this situation with Starbucks has sparked it again in a new way. I’m appreciative however to have a voice and also to know people with strong voices that can narrate the “behind the scenes” of these happenings. We need to be more aware of what happens as a result of ignorance and anger. Our children are watching us and following our examples. We have to set a positive one for them and also help them mentally/emotionally deal with the environment we have currently. I encourage you to discuss your pain and trauma with those you care about. Share your lessons. Share your voice. Be an example. STAY HUMBLE. Our lives depend on it. .

“You can suffer the pain of self discipline, or the pain of regret.” 👈🏾 Story of my life. 😪

I remember October 2017 I was standing at Broad & Chestnut and I met the guy who’s voice you hear, @etthehiphoppreacher . He was walking with his wife so I didn’t say much I just said “Thank you for being a voice I could depend on for motivation.” Then I thanked his wife for her support of him and asked if I could give Him a card. It was a surreal moment and one I’ll never forget. He’s been on my radar for years and his words have almost single handedly woke me up outta my fog. He also lives my dream of traveling the world to inspire and uplift others. When I handed him my business card he said.....”Humble Genius, I like that.” It’s all I needed. I took his words as preparing me to be handed the torch in a few years. 🙏🏾 I’ve been playing this video for days now I’m the morning and it gets me fired up every time. I hope it does the same for you. STAY HUMBLE. .

Every once in a while you meet people on the same EXACT wave with the same EXACT drive. This guy for damn sure fits the mold of positivity and & progression. If you know me you know I seldom trust new people with my hairline😂. My guy @bhgrooming at @ethosgsfm not only doesn’t push my hairline back, but he also reinforces my forward thinking and we speak at length about the empires we will build big separately and together. When I hop in the chair I get to be groomed physically and mentally and that’s something money can’t buy. I’m chasing after a dream that most often only I can see. That’s why it’s amazing to meet people who buy into that vision and help me however they can. I will always be conscious of the fact that no success I achieve will have been done so alone. It’s empire or nothing. EVERYBODY EATS FAM. Stay humble.

Had to repost because the biggest mistake I ever made was underestimating the power and resilience of my negative inner voice. I foolishly thought I eradicated it. What i realized however is that the voice doesn’t go away, it simply lies dormant the longer it goes without validation. Your negative inner voice feeds off of doubt and fear. Those two emotions exist most when you are underprepared or choosing to live below your potential. THE ANSWER IS ACTION. I am finding that in my moments of complacency or idleness, the voice comes back with a vengance. I’ve stepped back and away from everything to truly understand what and how I am doing what I’m doing. It’s helped me gain confidence and comfort. It’s helped me understand patience with myself and others. It has shown me where the true value is.

When I came back from California I felt like I failed. I felt like I quit on a mission. What I was really doing was pivoting and following the flow of my life. Having confidence in my decisions is something I lost some years back. I began to value what others wanted from me and how they saw me over how I saw myself. That imbalance and desire for approval disrupted me in a way I’ve only just begun to understand. My new endeavor is to be proud of myself everyday knowing I did my best with the 24 hours given. I’m not gazing towards a better future. For no future moment is more valuable than the present. No day is greater than today. No past memory should cast a shadow on the possibilities you see. It’s time to stop being so hard on ourselves. It’s time to understand that life is a journey. Stop rushing you. Start being kind to you. Be PATIENT with you. Go be great. I love you and believe in you. STAY HUMBLE. .

“Everything you’re going through, is in preparation for everything you asked for.”
.

It’s easy to have a negative view of what you go through that isn’t pleasant. It can be easy to feel like a victim. Today let’s switch the narrative. What if what you’re going through is trying to show you the lesson you’ve been ignoring? What if your life is trying to show you what your capable of withstanding? You see we rarely look at our life’s challenges with a smile as if to say, “I’m still standing, I’m still strong.” Try that for me today. Hold your head high and push through. It won’t always be pretty, but if you keep pushing you can always gain momentum. Go be great. I believe in you. Stay humble. .

Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war. .
.

Life is a rumble. Sometimes it’s going to feel like you’re in the 11th round with 30 seconds left and your ears are ringing. Your only focus will be to stand your ground and make it through. Focus on the moment. Don’t focus on the battle ahead, focus on how far you’ve made it. Focus on the fact that you didn’t come this far to lose. You didn’t give it everything you have just to walk away and hand over the win. You deserve what you came here for. You deserve to have your hand raised in the air as a champion. Keep going. Your toughest days are behind you because you’re stronger now than you’ve ever been. I love you. I believe in you. You do not need permission to go thrive and live your life as you were meant to. STAY HUMBLE. .

The stage is a magic circle where only the most real things happen, a neutral territory outside the jurisdiction of Fate where stars may be crossed with impunity. A truer and more real place does not exist in all the universe.

I’m excited to be here capturing media and speaking for @bbfounders #hustlehouse . This is my first time at #SXSW and the energy is amazing, the team is amazing, this opportunity is amazing. Shout out to @hustontillotsonuniversity for hosting us. #hbcu love is in full effect! Thank you to everyone who’s encouraged and affirmed me. It takes a village and I’m grateful to have amazing folks on my side. .

CHASE YOUR DREAMS. It will take time, but they will bloom and propel you towards things you could never imagine. Stay humble. .

You may not be responsible for getting knocked down, but you’re certainly responsible for getting back up. .
.

TODAY IS THE DAY YOU BOUNCE BACK. I understand you’ve gone through hell. I understand that times got rough, but those days are due to end. Your time for triumph is here. The easiest way to win is to decide that you won’t lose. I’m proud of you for continuing to push through. Now I want you to take it up a notch. You gotta wipe the blood from or mouth and ask life, “Is that all you’ve got.” It won’t be easy. Everyday won’t be ideal, and that’s on. Learn to look for opportunities to prove your worth instead of looking for opportunities to be comfortable. This time is trying to teach you something! Pay attention and apply the lesson. I’m proud of you for pushing through. I’m proud of you for standing tall. STAY HUMBLE. .

Feel the fear and do it anyway.

So this Saturday, @bbfounders is hosting #Hustlehouse at #SXSW In Austin Texas. I’ve been invited to be a speaker and I’m losing my mind, in a great way. 😁 It’s been a long time coming for me to be living and walking in my purpose. I’ve been speaking on stages since I was 6, and up until a few months again....I was running from it. As I embrace being afraid and doing it anyway, opportunities are opening up. If you’ll be in Texas come through it’s FREE! LINK IN MY BIO. I’m excited beyond measure and ready to use this as another launching pad. 🙏🏾
.
.
.
I’m proud of all of you who are somehow pushing past your discomfort and making great things happen. If you’ve been struggling with taking a leap towards your dreams don’t be discouraged. Take baby steps and you will be pulled in slowly but surely into your purpose, I promise. I’m always here to help how I can. KEEP GOING. STAY HUMBLE. .

This is me talking to you guys everyday. 😂😂I swear the things I’m doing right now scare the crap outta me. I have an investor meeting in the morning for the #witldoc and I’m flying to Texas on Thursday to speak at a SXSW event. As I live life “on the edge” I realize it’s where we were meant to thrive. On the other side of fear is where amazing happens. If you’re used to it....it won’t bring you anything new. It’s imperative that you understand the weight of your mindset & decisions on your future. Also keep in mind that your courage can have a profound affect on others. You can set people free. You can show people that the world has been lying to us the whole time and we were BORN great, while we spend our lives trying to expose that. When I say I believe in you I mean it. When I say it I’m also talking to myself, as a reminder when I look back. Don’t push your dreams under the rug. Embrace them. Don’t run from Your purpose. Go be great as you were meant to be. And don’t forget, STAY HUMBLE. .
