Flow Nation: The Secret Sauce for Love, Luck and Living Large That’s Got More Flava. Get Some Here!

doc_lg

What do Kevin Hart and Steve Harvey have in common? They made their names in comedy. How about DJ Khaled and Charlamagne Tha God? They made early waves in radio. But there’s something else they all have in common: ‘finding flow.’ It’s the thing that gets us up in the morning even if we don’t know it.

Over the past year or so they all published books telling their story of love, luck and living large. They might have taken different roads to glory but seem to share a common theme of going from humble beginnings to becoming pop culture icons. In a sense, finding flow got turned into their awesome sauce.

awesome-sauce

So what does this really mean in the regular world? Whether it takes an alarm clock (or not) to wake us up, the thing that gets us up and moving is the idea of powering our flow. This could be growing in areas of ambition, taking social action or experiencing life’s moments of adventure and pure satisfaction.

That’s certainly the case when you read the stories of Harvey, Hart, Khaled and Charlamagne. Plus they shared personal examples of getting a ‘heavenly assist’ from someone along their path. They got a break in a phone call that was unexpected, an opportunity that was unheralded or situation that was unscripted.

One of the lessons in their stories on powering flow starts by putting passion where your mouth is, purpose where your heart is and pain where the truth is. Things we give voice to most or face up to tell us who we are, what we love and care about. These become stronger from a place that’s close to the heart.

The way they handled setbacks as well as my own story are reminders that finding & powering flow can happen from a brush with failure or a stroke of faith. In my case it was from hosting a radio show on a college station. While I was on air someone decided to pull the plug which interrupted the broadcast.

At that moment I decided not to fight back but to go way back and apply a stroke of faith. This made me learn more about the ‘Joseph story.’ His dream helped me see my own gifting and calling. Sometimes finding/powering flow means appreciating the people, places, pitfalls or pathways that confirm your story.

In these major keys we realize how not to let mistakes or other people’s human faults be our halts. Each of the icons has a story to tell of how they changed their luck, made a buck or got a relationship unstuck. Through the ups and downs they were simply trying to turn flow into reaping the good they would sow.

We enjoy artists when they perform with flow-motion. This brings together ‘lyrics and groove’ in a way that rocks. It’s fun when athletes at work or play get to deliver flow-magic. We cheer them for how they inspire us towards greatness. That’s the feeling we can hope for each day from living large in a flow nation.

Imagine how a brook becomes a stream or a stream becomes a river that leads to the ocean by finding flow. Or as a car goes from zero to 60 on the highway it finds its flow with the rest of traffic. Powering our flow takes us from zero to 60 or from feeling less to feeling worthy in the low or high tides of life’s ocean.

Tip: “Powering your flow means putting passion where your mouth is, purpose where your heart is and making things pop where your genius is.”

There’s ruffled feathers and choppy waters in Cavaliers land. When news broke that Kyrie Irving wanted out, some gasped like was heard in Congress. Not clear if the story will be fully told before he leaves. But on the ‘Girls Trip’ score, Tiffany Haddish and Regina Hall know about being a ‘trip without the baggage.’

They’re flying high with a box office hit. Haddish landed the role in breakout fashion. They really wanted a household name actor. According to Vibe she sent word back to the producers saying “Tell them I’ve had a name since 1979. I was born with a name. You tell them I need to come in.” It was like her ‘one shot.’

Her rise to fame is a case of how people take stock of their story to achieve new glory. After some rough years as a teenager trying to play mother to younger siblings, she realized that making people laugh was important to her. She crossed paths with Kevin Hart who set her mental wheels turning on setting goals.

She talks about the upward climb in her new TV special on going from Hood to Hollywood. With the sassy mantra of She’s Ready as her tailwind, Haddish explains how developing self-love and self-acceptance moved her closer to showbiz relevance. It’s one of those ‘Yea I made it but not on my own’ stories.

Haddish has had to get past low moments to have these high moments. Hall, who’s put in her time as well, also helps others move past things that can derail your sail. No matter what, letting go of the baggage means not being bitter, but better or not being ‘so street’ where people can’t see the ‘so sweet.’

Ruffled feathers, choppy waters in the ‘Land. Yo, fire-up the sports scoop band. News broke Irving wants out. Stuff to make ‘Bron scream or shout. Like gasp heard from Congress mouth. More to be said. From what’s in teammate’s  head. Haddish & Hall on ‘Girls Trip’ score. Trip without the baggage.. there’s more.

Flying high with box office hit. Haddish landed role that’s lit. Really for actor with household name. And maybe more skin in the game. Sent word back to the audition shop. That she could make it pop. Her name’s been around for a minute. So she wanted to win it. Kinda that one shot. Make it big, hit the spot.

Rise to fame by taking stock. Of what her skills got on lock. In how to use her story. For achieving new glory. Some rough teenage years. To be mommy and sista for her peers. Making people laugh her secret thing. Not trying to dance or sing. Kevin Hart game her a reason. To set goals and expect her season.

Talks about the upward climb. Trying to make nickels and a dime. New TV special ‘bout her days in the hood. And not giving up to make good. Sassy mantra of ‘She’s Ready’ her tailwind breeze. Now doing it big and with ease. Where self-love and more acceptance. Moved things closer to showbiz relevance.

Haddish going from lows to highs. From rock-bottom to blue skies. Hall putting in grind time too. Seeing their dreams come thru. Advice on things that can derail. Or put holes in your sail. No matter what came their way. Hard to carry baggage and play. Not bitter but better. Where ‘so street’ seen as ‘so sweet.’

What’s better, to be the star of the game or the star of the show? What if it’s a game and a show? That’s what fans might debate when watching their favorite TV game show or ball player. It’s what we see with the MLB All-Star Game and Judge Judy on deck. Judge & Judy bring more face time to their game time.

Judy just launched a new TV game show. According to the Queens Courier she said “So thrilled to embark on a new adventure with such fabulous partners; iWitness is a compelling game for those from 5 through 95.” Judge & Judy show-off their power to WOW as something coming from their sweet spot.

The premise of the show is based on the magic of memory and observation from watching a video clip. The goal is to match as best as possible what really stands-out in the video moment. The idea probably comes from Judy’s years of experience in hearing people give eye witness accounts from an event.

Meantime, there’s no confusing what happened at the MLB Homerun Derby with Judge taking the prize. His performance was so telling and compelling that the Baseball Commissioner said he could become the face of the game. As any sports writer might say, the dude is young, gifted and stacked (and that’s a fact).

Yea, everything is everything and when asked about the game or show folks were happy. But it seems the WOW factor is a kind of addictive quality their presence/essence has to offer. She’s been on the TV show for 20+ years and maybe he’s ready to take a long walk or let homeruns fly like cranes in the sky.

Which is better, be star of the game? Or star of show the same? Whether in a game or show. It’s about hustle and flow. What fans might debate at the bar. Or watching ballers from afar. As seen at MLB All-Star fair. With homeruns flying in the air. More face time to the scene. More game time for the green.

Judge Judy launching game show. Aaron Judge about to rake in the dough. Judy so thrilled to take. New adventure for winner’s sake. With such fabulous biz sponsors. And TV industry watchers. Seen as compelling game at best. For those 9 to 95 at the fest. Power to stir the pot. And WOW the sweet spot.

Premise of the show is this. A way for memory hit or miss. From observation of video clip. To giving  a scoop or incident tip. Goal is to match what you see. To what stands-out not so much A to Z. An idea from evidence gathering trenches. As seen by Judy from the courtroom benches.

No confusing the homerun watch. Judge hit them beyond the catch. Taking top prize among the sluggers. Female fans among his list of huggers. A performance in range so telling. Soon to be a pitchman for things he’s selling. MLB Commish says he’s new face. Even before this year’s pennant race.

Yea, everything is everything. Don’t wait to see if fat lady sings. When asked about the game or show. Folks shared their happiness, you know. But seems WOW factor in their presence. Is addictive quality of their essence. For 20+ years she on TV screen. He ready for long walk or homerun’s gangsta lean.

It was the first weekend in the official start of summer and things got hot! There were so many events from coast to coast that had stars in the building. There were Awards shows and other spots to choose from that were happening. Even Ice Cube and DJ Khaled achieved new dreams with their latest projects.

In launching this new 3-on-3 professional basketball league, Cube told USA Today’s For The Win “When I saw Kobe score 60 points in his last game, I knew that guy can still play basketball…and there’s no where I can ever see him play again.” Cube saw an opportunity to fill a void, serve a niche & roll the dice.

After giving it more thought he went with the 3-on-3 idea which is how most basketball pick-up games are played. Even though he was starting from scratch with the idea, he decided to recruit former NBA players who’re now retired. The concept has some buzz with strong attendance after the first weekend of games.

While that was happening on the East Coast, Khaled was mixing it up on the West Coast with a new album release. His social media feed was blazing with clicks and pics from some of his promotional pit stops. With Cube and Khaled you see their vision catch fire as they approach their dreams like pros.

What really stands out for both of them is how they make the situation special. Khaled gives nods and props to his production team and music collaborators with his Another One lingo. Cube lets players wear their street-side nicknames on their jerseys. It’s the way they make things funky, fun and catch feels.

First summer weekend start. Weather pretty much played its part. Things in show biz got hot. With so many events to hit the spot. Awards shows and so much more. Some things began as early as four. Lots of stars in the building to see. How Ice Cube and DJ Khaled let dreams come to be.

Launching new 3-on-3 pro hoops. Giving USA Today his dream scoops. Saw Kobe retire after scoring 60 in last game. Knew he could still do more with his fame. Why not see him play again. If he’s still can shoot jumpers when. A way to serve a niche, fill a void. Roll the dice for the retired and unemployed.

After thinking things through a bit. Cube thought his idea could be a hit. Most pick-up games happen the 3-on-3 way. That’s how most kids learn to play. Starting from scratch to move it along. Cube adding his own rhymes in a Hip Hop song. Concept has buzz from fan support. To see who still got game on the court.

That was sort of the East Coast swing. While Khaled on West Coast doing his thing. Mixing it up for his album release. Grateful for the fan love piece by piece. Social media feed blazing with clicks. Streaming music previews and promo pics. Many see their vision catch fire. Living their dreams about to go higher.

Something to make them standout then. The situation makes things feel like a ten. Khaled gives nods to his production team. Adding props for his collab-ready dream. As Another One helps him see more green. And stay front and center on the scene. Nicknames on jerseys to make it funky, fun and feel teen.

The Met Gala is still bringing the stars out in full effect. There went a pregnant Serena Williams and a radiant Rihanna on the Red Carpet. It seems Diddy got tired of standing while his girl posed for pictures. These days he and Ne-Yo are putting their money where their heart is while still making things hot.

Recently Ne-Yo decided to invest in a school for the next crop of tech stars. He told Tech Crunch “This is not, ‘oh, let me attach my name to something.’ This is something that I’m genuinely passionate about.” They’re investing time and money in the next chance for others to grind by making passion do what it do!

They’re still doing their thing working with new artists and emerging talent. That’s how Diddy made a name for himself in the record business. But they want to prepare students not just for the passion worlds of ballers and beats. So they’re providing the training to help launch whiz kids for the tech-savvy world.

Social media went crazy when Diddy decided to sit on the stairs at the Met Gala entrance. Not long ago he was the one going crazy about Kendrick Lamar’s new album. But after Diddy opened a school in Harlem last year, he’s using his talents to connect students with the passion worlds of brains and biz too.

Ne-Yo’s looking forward to his next music project soon. Diddy is looking ahead to the unfolding of his latest legacy project. They’re not doing things just as a means to making more ends but also as a way for social uplift through the box office and hometown blocks. Just look what their ‘passion fruit’ can do!

Met Gala brought stars out at night. A pregnant Serena looking out of sight. Red Carper radiant was Ri-Ri. In full effect they’d be. Seems Diddy got tired of standing. With girl friend he was photo bombing. These days he and Ne-Yo doing their part. Putting money where their heart. Still making things hot start.

Ne-Yo drops some dollaz for the kids. Investing in next crop of tech star bids. Telling Tech Crunch it’s not just about using his name. But about bridging the passion of his game. Something he feels hopeful about. Maybe a way to lend showbiz clout. Next chance for others to grind. Do what it do and being kind.

Still working with artists and fresh talent. That’s more than a passing comment. How Diddy made a name in biz. Now providing training for the next whiz. Beyond the world of ballers and beats. To a world of reaching new feats. With the tech-savvy tools of today. Where kids learn to code for their payday.

Social media was abuzz. Diddy sat on Met stairs as if ‘What’s up cuz?’ Not long ago he was going crazy good. About Kendrick Lamar’s new album from the ‘hood. A year ago Diddy opened new school. So kids learn more than the golden rule. In the passion worlds of biz and brains. Students can achieve new gains.

Ne-Yo readying for new music mix. Diddy looking ahead to latest legacy fix. Not doing stuff just for the ends. But also for message social uplift sends. Some projects at box office or hometown blocks. So folks can decide not to mess with the glocks. By seeing how ‘passion fruit’ can boost their stocks.

The NY Media world is trying to keep a steady hand these days. With different personalities coming and going, the industry shot callers are busy shifting things. There’s word that Megyn Kelly will soon be back on air. While Steve Harvey and Kenan Thompson are too hot to trot, tame or slow down anytime soon.

Harvey’s busy moving and shaking while Thompson is holding it down at SNL. In a HuffPost interview he said “I thought that SNL was just going to be that bridge into being an adult actor. They’ve not only been a bridge. They’ve been a [beep] highway for me.” A little bend and big break have helped their careers rise.

They know ‘top-dog’ ratings can be good for business. Harvey recently announced the return of Showtime at the Apollo as a weekly show coming soon. He plans to re-launch his daytime Talk Show from LA this fall. Thompson is one of the longest-running SNL performers, all of this from turning talent into comedy.

But what seems to add to their longevity is a knack for turning talent into options. Thompson plays different sketch-comedy stage roles on SNL. Harvey’s gone from the stand-up comedy stage and now hosts different roles on TV. It’s like that old story of putting talent to work so that it multiplies and flies.

One of the signature skits by Thompson is playing Harvey on Family Feud. It’s art imitating life in a fun and natural way. That’s how they use their talent to pull on the purse-strings in the marketplace. Their comedy is more than pulling a puppet on a string. It’s in how their skills brings praises many people sing.

NY Media world trying to be steady. These days they gotta be ready. Different folks coming and going. Industry shot callers doing the wooing. Word that Megyn Kelly set to appear. Back on mainsteam TV air. While Steve Harvey & Kenan Thompson keep rollin. Too hot to trot, tame or keep from slowin’.

Harvey busy moving and shaking. Thompson holding it down at SNL taping. Telling HuffPost about his days. Before people knew the role he plays. Thinking SNL could be a bridge in time. To adult actor in his prime. Not only has it been a start. But also a bend, big break to raise career part.

With ‘top-dog’ ratings in the biz. Going from nobody to somebody, gee whiz. Showtime Apollo return coming soon. Weekly show on Harvey-TV tune. Re-launch of daytime TV show. From Chicago to LA studio. Thompson as an SNL act for years. Using talent to climb the comedy stairs.

Longevity seems to be their knack. Turning talent into options pack. Thompson in different sketch-comedy roles. Harvey from stand-up to inspiring souls. Thompson as characters into which he flows.  Harvey as host on so many shows. Like the old story where talent multiplies. One gig at a time it flies.

Signature skit Thompson might score most.  Is playing Harvey as Family Feud host. Art imitating life in fun way. As natural as it gets any given day. Talent to pull purse strings in marketplace. Comedy to put a laugh on people’s face. More than pulling a puppet string. Their skills bring praises many people sing.

There are some events that seem to bring out celebs from everywhere. These days it’s probably Coachella and the NBA playoffs. At Coachella, Rihanna and Cam Newton showed-up making fashion statements. But it’s Jordan Peele and F Gary Gray who have folks coming out in droves at the box office.

Gray is Director of the Fate of the Furious, the eighth release in the franchise. In his own words as an emerging Hollywood player he once said “I’d like to direct epic feature films that I won’t have to apologize for years down the line.” He knows secrets for delivering innovation, spotting trends and reaching people.

Peele who recently had breakout success with the movie Get Out might say one secret is having an eye for seeing what others might not readily see. That goes beyond eyesight to include foresight. They’ve honed this by bridging their current reality. It’s taken them to the point of having their vision come to life.

Some of this quality was on display this week from Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg who’s excited about the next tech frontier of what’s being called ‘augmented reality.’ These guys show us how trends + innovation means seeing what people want before they need it or need before they want and gotta have it.

When it comes to their appeal, a key ingredient has been how their work reaches a diverse audience. It’s keeping things simple, plain and with a common touch. It’s not trying to hypnotize or fool the world. But getting people to see themselves in moments of joy, pain and sunshine with no more rain in their clouds.

Some events seem to be. A time and place to spree. With lots of celebs in the spot. Helping to make things hot. Like Coachella, NBA playoffs and more. Rihanna and Cam raised the fashion score. Jordan Peele and F Gary Gray doing their thing. Folks at the box office make it go ka-ching.

Gray as Director on the set. Fate of the Furious ain’t peaked yet? Eighth franchise release now. Where fans watch and go wow. As emerging Hollywood player Gray said. Hoping to land epic movies and feature spread. Years down the line he’d have it made. Innovation, trends, reaching people, getting paid.

Peele made history breaking the bank. With Get Out a reason to thank. Secret in having the eye for gold. Doing more than fitting the mold. Goes beyond simple good eyesight. But also attaching foresight. Honed by bridging current reality station. To do more to affect a nation. Where things come to life from vision.

Some of this on display. From what Mark Zuckerberg had to say. Excited about tech’s new frontier. Being called augmented reality to be clear. When trends + innovation means seeing what people want. Before the need or have it to flaunt. What they need before it’s a hit. Or they get the feeling of ‘gotta have it.’

When it comes to their appeal. They’ve been able to land the deal. Working to reach diverse audience streams. And tapping into real life dreams. By keeping things simple and plain. A common touch all the sane. Not to hypnotize or fool others along the way. But for peeps to see themselves rising another day.
