Cultivating Minds To Own Thyself
May 3, 2018
Google defines wealth as an abundance of valuable possessions or money. In my own terms, generational wealth is the act of taking said valuable possessions and passing it down through the bloodline. Ensuring security for yourself, your children, and their children's children.
Cultivating Minds To Own Thyself, puts a new lens on the phrase valuable assets. Cleveland award winning author, poet and public speaker, Jameel Davis doesn't describe wealth as a paycheck. But as a clean, healthy, and processing state of mind. A state of mind that builds character and wisdom. Creating a being that places knowledge of self before fast money.
Davis uses his enlightening style of writing to address the
destructive habits found equally in black men and women. Cultivating Minds To Owns Thyself then offers non judgemental solutions on owning your mistakes and using them to build an empire without being anchoring to the past.
Jameel wants his audience to take control of their own lives. At times it felt like less of a book, and more of a conversation with an older, careful educated brother. Talks of claiming a healthy identity, passing down a respectable name to your children, and dating are only the small points the poet brushes on.
The grind doesn't stop for the Jameel, he's a father and worker in county corrections. Many people look up to him, admire his character, and body of work. This Explains how he's had the chance to explore the country to spread his understanding of the game. Jameel is booked to the eyes with speaking engagements at
career days, book fairs, almost
Davis is currently working on a goal to to sign a book in every
state. Cultivating Minds To Own Thyself can be purchased on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. It's also the first book I've ever read into with a soundtrack.
