Wins and losses come a dime a dozen. But effort? Nobody can judge that. Because effort is between you and you.
You gotta be hungry for it. You’ve got to put everything you got on it. EVERYTHING! Every second. You have to be the first one in line. That’s how leaders are born.
You’ve got to go out and show them that I’m a different creature now, then I was five minutes ago, cause I’m pissed off for greatness. Cause if you ain’t pissed off for greatness, that just means you’re okay with being mediocre.
I figured something out. And it is no secret what I figured out. Whatever the majority of people were doing, I found myself doing the opposite. I wanted to chase something great.
