Life isn't easy, pretty much anyone could tell you that. But the attitude we carry through life goes a long way in determining our enjoyment of it. We can't dictate what happens to us - whether you believe everything happens for a reason or things happen by chance, we often are not in control. The only thing we do have control over is the choices we make and how we make them.
Richard Williams knows this better than anyone. Richard, better known by the name Prince Ea, is a rapper and spoken word poet who is respected all over the world for his eloquent thoughts on life, politics, and the environment. He got his start in 2009 by creating the "Make SMART Cool" movement. The goal was to "promote intelligence to everyone, everywhere and integrate it with hip-hop." The idea quickly spread and soon Richard began to sell a clothing line promoting the idea. Prince Ea began to find success in the rap community as well, winning several national awards and releasing his own mixtapes to tons of praise.
His real passion is to help people improve their lives through his words, and his latest video is an inspiring example of that. It's titled "Everybody Dies, But Not Everybody Lives" and its purpose is to encourage everyone to not live with regret. It's easier said than done, but after listening to Prince Ea's words, you will be determined to do so.
