Haters are a good problem to have. Nobody hates the good ones. They hate the great ones.
A lot of leaders fail because they don’t have the bravery to touch that nerve or strike that chord.
The moment you give up, is the moment you let someone else win.
I can’t relate to lazy people. We don’t speak the same language. I don’t understand you. I don’t want to understand you.
If you’re afraid to fail, then you’re probably going to fail.
Pain doesn’t tell you when you ought to stop. Pain is the little voice in your head that tries to hold you back because it knows if you continue you will change.
If you want to be great at something, there’s a choice you have to make. What I mean by that is, there are inherent sacrifices that come along with that. Family time, hanging out with friends, being a great friend, being a great son, nephew, whatever the case may be.
The most important thing is you must put everybody on notice that you’re here and you are for real.
I create my own path. It was straight and narrow. I looked at it this way: you were either in my way, or out of it.
We can always kind of be average and do what’s normal. I’m not in this to do what’s normal.
It’s the one thing you can control. You are responsible for how people remember you—or don’t. So don’t take it lightly.
The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do.
