Yes I, Nazarite I is showing a good example. Learn from it.
Here are the words of the Most High Jah RasTafarI Haile Selassie I
The Lion of Judah has prevailed
Haile Selassie I, Elect of God
King of Kings of Ethiopia
Every labourer is a father, his labour is his child. Choose your project carefully and achieve it worthily.
Once a person has decided upon his life work and is assured that in doing the work for which he is best endowed and equipped, he is filling a vital need, what he then needs, is faith and integrity, compiled with courageous spirit so that no longer preferring himself to the fulfilment of his task, he may address himself to the problems he must solve in order to be effective.
Rich and poor have always existed and always will.
Why? Because there are those that work and those that don't, those that wish to earn their living and those that prefer to do nothing.
Those that work, that want to work, are not poor. For it is true that Our Lord the Creator sends us into the world as equals, but it is also true that when one is born one is neither rich nor poor. One is naked.
It is later on that one becomes rich or poor, according to one's desserts.
Yes, we too are aware that giving alms serves no useful purpose. For there is only one means to solve the poverty problem. work.
We have said that whoever doesn't work because he doesn't want to is poor. We have said that wealth has to be gained through hard work. We have said those who don't work starve. And now We add that the capacity to earn depends on the individual: Each individual is responsible for his misfortunes, his fate. It is wrong to expect help to fall from above, as a gift: Wealth has to be deserved. Work is one of the commandments of Our Lord the Creator!
If each and everyone endeavours to cooperate and work in as much as his capacity permits, our faith rests upon the Almighty God that he would bless the results for us.
It is not sufficient simply to see and admire the natural beauty and fertility of Ethiopia.
It is our obligation to work upon and benefit from this country whose fertile soil has been granted us by the Almighty God. We have to gain honour and pride for the country.
Whatever the task may be, man may begin it but he cannot complete it, unless God sustains and supports him. If he fails to accomplish the task on which he has set out, having worked to the best of his ability, he is not to be maligned by being called lazy.
Here is something I have Reasoned before
Praises unto the Most High Jah RasTafarI Haile Selassie I.
Jah is Great, and Greatly to be Praises. Selassie I Greatness is unsearchable.
Never forget that it is Selassie I name that I and I Trod by, so it is up to I and I to Live according to Jah Name.
Haile Selassie I shows I and I how to Live, not to show us what we can't be, but to show I and I what I and I are supposed to be, and are capable of being.
The sooner I and I realize that it is only ourselves that are stopping I and I, the better it will be for I and I Rising. The excuses are not Real and never have been; the Real and True is that I and I are Created in the Image of Haile Selassie I.
As I showed in the Don't look down Reasoning, I and I are not supposed to use this knowledge of our filthiness to bring ourselves further down, I and I see it so that I and I can Fight it and Blaze it until it is Gone.
The only thing stopping us is we. Nothing else, not babylon, not situation, not any other foolish imagination and excuse that we think of to avoid I and I True Image.
Every day that we make an excuse we are in risk of the final death, of being blotted out of the Book of the Living. That is how foolish our excuses are, foolish unto death.
Resist the devil and the devil will flee. Resist temptation and temptation will flee. A simple choice that we continually avoid because of our comfortable excuses.
Myself, like all of we are guilty of the same. I have blazed out some of I excuses, and I have more to blaze. I make sure that I remind Iself of the excuses that remain so that I don't forget that they are excuses and trick myself into thinking they are real.
Live for Selassie I, or you will lead yourself dead for nothing.
Also, read these Reasonings.

Rise up and do something for yourself
Don't Look for Wealth, Be Wealth
Willing Failure, Willing Weakness
Don't look down
Fire is Good
