Let these be your desires:
The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill. I will not be out-worked, period. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me, you might be all of those things you got it on me in nine categories. But if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things: You’re getting off first, or I’m going to die. It’s really that simple, right? You’re not going to out-work me. It’s such a simple, basic concept. The guy who is willing to hustle the most is going to be the guy that just gets that loose ball. The majority of people who aren’t getting the places they want or aren’t achieving the things that they want in this business is strictly based on hustle. It’s strictly based on being out-worked; it’s strictly based on missing crucial opportunities. I say this all the time, if you stay ready, you ain’t gotta get ready.

Do you need someone else to tell you your product/idea/execution/brand is great? Don’t worry what anyone else thinks, trust your own judgment. When others doubt, be confident in your vision.
Stop waiting for the perfect time to do what you want to do. Just go for it and do it now. Don’t follow…
This is good music.
People will show you who they are, but we ignore it because we want them to be who we want them to be.
