One way to improve upon current conditions in your community is to not just change the game, but to own the game. Owning the game means setting in place value systems that are beneficial to your livelihood. It may mean listening primarily to music that uplifts your spirits. It may mean watching television shows and movies that give you a positive and respectful perception of people who live in your community. It may mean supporting politicians because you directly see their positive influence in your community. Owning the game simply means allowing your own actions to influence your destiny. What can you do to show that you are owning the game?
