Abundance Mentality is a necessary concept for any BBOY to reach a world class status. It is the idea that a BBOY believes there are enough resources and success to share with others. It is commonly contrasted with the scarcity mindset, which is founded on the idea that, if someone else wins or is successful in a situation, that means you lose; not considering the possibility of all parties winning (in some way or another) in a given situation.
From a abundance point of view, a BBOY will see his opponent and himself as a teachers. They each take their turns revealing to each other their own weaknesses. After the battle they can thank one another for the wonderful experience of revelation and awakening.
Individuals with an abundance mentality are able to celebrate the success of others rather than be threatened by it. BBOYs with this skill can look at other equally good and better BBOYs around them with support and admiration. Without this abundance philosophy the same BBOY would feel timid to compete against someone better than themselves. Or even abandoned, or insignificant, when other crew members skills exceed their own. This scarcity philosophy can also destroy crews or keep members from giving constructive feedback to each other so the whole crew grows.
Generation BBOY uses the abundance mentality in all the work we do with the BBOY community we love. We believe this should be the core value for the next generation of businesses world wide.
The BBOYs pictured above are from Ithaca NYC. Generation BBOY believes that through abundance, success will come. We always send a little more in sponsorship than we think we should, having faith that the good we give, will be returned to us ten fold.
This is Generation BBOY telling you that
"none of us, are as strong as all of us"
We love any event that is formed out of the love of street art and hip hop culture. That's what Get Dressed Denver is all about! So Generation BBOY has organized some BBOYs from around Denver to show up and cypher at the event. This is our way of giving back. If you are a BBOY and would like to be a part of this, hit us up. More info below, including a sneaker drive!
This event speaks to the Denver Community to be more creative and to promote art based independence in Denver. There will be over fifteen artists, twenty-five businesses, seven clothing companies and six DJ’s creating a unique charity and giving experience for Denver at City Hall Event Center.
This year, Get Dressed Denver will feature four prominent graffiti artists whom will collaborate on one mural to be auctioned off for the chosen charity, five clothing companies participating in a fashion show, and one headlining Artist.
The event will promote a sneaker drive for children and young adults that cannot afford new shoes collect lightly used clothes for Battered Women, and auction off art to raise money for children at risk in the Denver Community.
