My father came home and she said, “Slick,” which was my Daddy’s nickname, “Your boy been up at the school being a smart aleck.” Now I already know I’m gonna get a whooping for this. She said, “Tell him what you wrote on your paper”. And I said, “I want to be on TV.” And my father said, “Well what’s wrong with that?” And she said, “Well he being a smart aleck and putting something like that that’s unbelievable on the paper.” So my father said “How come the boy can’t put on the paper he want to be on TV?” So they were starting to get into an argument so I got sent to my room. Which I knew what that meant. That means go in your room, get ready, we gonna get this whooping right. So I go in my room and they out there having a discussion. My father came in the room. He said, “Ok this what I want you to do, what did she want you to put on your paper?” I said, “I don’t know Daddy, like a basketball player what all of the rest of the kids wrote.” He said, “Well put that on the paper. Take that to school tomorrow and give it to her. Take your paper and put it in your drawer. Every morning when you get up read your paper. And every night before you go to bed read your paper. That’s your paper.” What he told me was a principle of success. That if you write it down and envision it, anything you see in your mind you can hold your hand. He knew that and so he gave that to me. After that, every year when the teacher was living, I used to send her a TV for Christmas. Cause I wanted her to see me. She saw me one year, and she said, “Boy you send me all these TVs from wherever you are, and you don’t understand I got too many TVs. I had to give these TVs away sometime.” I know, it’s alright though. And I kept that paper. And that little boy with the stuttering problem is on TV seven days a week. Yeah, I’m on TV. All the time, you dig.
