What we're willing to give up in the pursuit of a dream.
Stop kidding yourselves. Go after what you want. There is no sacrifice in success, there are no obstacles. There is nothing between you and the goal! You see, if you succeed on your terms, you don't owe anybody any explanation. But if you fail on their terms, you've got a lot of explaining to do! A man doesn't strive for greatness and embrace mediocrity!
There is no compromise in a dream.
It's an excuse for falling short while you lay on your couches, in front of your TV's, with your remote controls, and your glasses of beer watching somebody else run with your dream....
So do me a favor.....Don't wake up one morning, when your hair is gray, and the elastic has gone out of your waistband, with shaving cream all over your faces, and you look in that mirror and you ask yourselves "What the hell have I been doing for the last 30 years? This isn't my life! This isn't where my passion lies!"
DO SOMETHING BEFORE THAT HAPPENS!
Don't be afraid of your ambitions. If other people hold you back, you don't want it badly enough and don't tell me you do! Because other people don't stop you from dreaming...YOU STOP YOURSELF! YOU GET IN YOUR OWN WAY! Because you're afraid of what you might become....
Even if that something is a wonderful, wonderful thing!
