"If you’re not where you want to be. If you don’t have what you want to have.
If you’re not where you think you should be at this particular place.
It has nothing to do with the system, but it has everything to do with the fact that you’re not making the sacrifice."
We are given every opportunity to achieve our dream.
Where's that opportunity?
It's right between hard work and sacrifice.
It's not handed to us. It's given to us the moment we earned it.
You will be given an opportunity.
Usually, those opportunities look like nothing close to your dream.
They are called stepping stones and guess what? You take every damn one.
There is no opportunity, no job — nothing that is beneath you.
You will fail and failing isn't the end, it's the beginning.
I'm not going to sugar coat it. When you get knocked down you don't just sit there and dwell on it.
You get back up. You push forward. You do everything in your power to achieve that dream.
"You see when you are not pursuing your goal, you are literally committing spiritual suicide.
You don’t beg average people to be phenomenal.
You don’t beg good people to be phenomenal.
You just are phenomenal, and you will attract phenomenally"
If everyone is against you. Good. You don't need anyone but yourself.
People will try and tear you apart and make you feel inadequate. They want you to fail.
If you continue to pursue your life with grace and dignity, you have already won.
Once you understand you do not need people to like you or to be on your side, you will succeed.
The strongest people are ones who stand up for what they believe it, even if that means standing alone.
They do not care who disagrees because they have a something stronger, the willpower and drive to peruse what they strongly believe in.
So make something of yourself. Do something that changes life as we know.
Do not come back until you can say you've made something of yourself.
Your potential to have the best and to be your best depends solely on how willing you are to put in the effort.
It's facing your greatest fears because that means it brings you one step closer to your goal.
It's getting off your ass and doing what's best for yourself and your family.
It's realizing that you are no better and no less than anyone else.
I'll let you in on a secret. I was scared to write and put myself out there.
I was scared to have a voice but if I never persued it, you wouldn't be reading this.
We all are meant for greatness.
We're all meant for something beyond ourselves and what we think we're capable of.
We all have the ability to do great things and to be great.
I do not have time for anyone who plays the victim and neither does this thing we call life.
That is the one thing that will get you nowhere; the idea that life will hand you what you want if you cry loud enough.
You are the only one who can make something of yourself. Fight like hell for it.
