Take a Seat @ the Table

There’s a lot of talk about comedian and businessman, Byron Allen, and his issues with Comcast. I love what he’s doing, and when I was watching a recent interview with him on The Breakfast Club, one of the things that struck me that he had to say was: no one gave him a seat at the proverbial American table of wealth and influence, he took a seat.

We all need to ask where in life can we take a seat at the table, ‘cause ain’t nobody pulling out chairs for us to sit.

Stop asking.

Take a seat. And I’m not talking about thievery.

Where in your life can you be so good, and so determined at something that people have no choice but to part the way for you to sit?

That’s what he’s talking about.

Well done Mr. Allen! Well done…
