A capture difficult to resist as I made or did my morning walk along the Malecon.
The original title was Rise and Shine Havana. But no need to use it anymore to message El Presidente. I did that with a brother statue-Antonio Maceo.
The new title is Rise and Shine Caribbean.
Well just to say this.
All Caribbean people who are self made people-those who originated from poor circumstances- should understand that they were insecure and maybe still are and it is that insecurity that has influenced their achievements.
But the ones who deny this insecurity by being arrogant, showering themselves with all manner of material things, believing that only they are God's gift to mankind and only they have all the right answers and alternative views from others are dismissed with vulgarity , demeaning expressions or dismissal/removal , will remain insecure until they have the wisdom to admit it (not by saying this-but adjusting their actions and mindset ground wards from the sky) They will, then, recognize that all those aforementioned items are just surface props manifesting their own stupidity and insecurity.
So please RISE and REALLY SHINE.
A message from a not so smart and possibly unstable person.
Let me add something further ,that seems to be BEST PRACTICE for the majority of Leaders in the Caribbean-I know for sure of my country and because most follow the same teachings ,I extend it to the others.
I know of senior people who suffered greatly for this kind of injustice/maladaptive treatment from people who call themselves great BOSSES-the funny thing is that the unknowing make them feel they are excellent at managing. And sometimes you possibly have people who should know but just for the sake of benefit they seem to display support-I class these people as DEVOTEES for a selfish cause.
The BOSSES WHO ARE ENTRUSTED WITH PUBLIC FUNDS TO MANAGE & USE FOR THE COUNTRY'S BENEFIT (do you think I should repeat THOSE LAST TWO words) should be more careful and serious with whom they manage and how they use money in public projects. But they usually are not.
Institutions like Universities & International Funding Agencies may have records and evidence this bad spending and these failed projects in their archives garnered by their own staff, the main audit agencies in the countries. & from these countries parliamentary oversight committees.
Ok I'll add this I am not saying that INSECURITY the pure concept is a negative one because that was not my intention to show-only those who deny that it exists in them and manifest those other awful behaviors.
But the concept could be extended to all persons who have a perfectionist instinct in them ,because they never believe they have gotten it right. They always push themselves to do more and even when they seemed so confident and accolades keep coming in they still push themselves even harder.
