You say THIS year’s gonna be different right? The only difference between your life this year and last year will be the people you meet and the books you read. Im not saying its advisable to read all of these back-to-back, in fact dont.. but DEFinitely pick out a few and check them out. Its AMAZING what a little perspective can do for you- take it from me. I think it was Einstein who said ” A mind, once expanded, canNOT contract..”

So how can i endorse a list if i havent read all of these you may ask? Well, the list won me over by listing the 4hour work week, Rich Dad Poor Dad and Think and Grow Rich.. if you’re serious about 2011 those are definitely three nice places to start.. I also want to give an honorary mention to “The War of Art” by Stephen Pressfield. It will change your life.


1. How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be? by Jack Canfield

Jack Canfield is best known for his Chicken Soup for the Soul series. In this book, he mentions the 25 Principles of Success – that have been a common thread among the most successful people from all walks of life.

My 2011 New Years Revolutions

Posted in Business, How-to-be-Fly, The Haziq $how with tags , , , , on January 6, 2011 by HaZiQ aLi

I dont know about you but I’m not one of the cynical folk who believe resolutions are just a load of BS. I think its all about the journey- not the destination- and even if you dont reach all of them- NOTHING is more important than goals.

Against all odds you gotta admit this was a helluva year. Some of my personal highlights were:
1)I won the MTV freshman 5 contest (by landslide)
2)My debut video premiered on both MTVu and MTV2
3)I got All-HipHop “Heater of the Day” honors twice in a week!
4)My first paid tour.
5)Gettin record done with Akon
6)Spending a week or so in India. Not Indiana. lol.
7)Makin honor roll my first semester back in school…lol

So overall, not a bad year at all. Im ready to see what this one has for the kid!!

Also, a wise man once told me that the worst kind of person is the one who doesnt work on their weaknesses…

So with that said, and in the interest of making ALLLLL of you my accountability partners- here- in no specific order- (drumroll) are my New Years Resolutions for 2011…

Ladies& G’s i give you the California Ferrari… in Rose Pink.
Now it annoys me that manufacturers copy each other so blatantly… (this is obviously an homage’ to the Aston Martin)… but w/ that said, I guess I’d find a way to make it work..
