a way of life

A way of life.

1. We can always kind of be average and do what’s normal. I’m not in this to do what’s normal.

2. If you don’t believe in yourself, nobody else will.

3. 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.

4. You can’t stop people from trying to limit your dreams, but you can stop it from becoming a reality. Your dreams are up to you. I encourage you to always be curious, always seek out things you love and always work hard once you find it.

5. Despite the fear, finish the job.

6. The moment you give up is the moment you let someone else win.

7. If you really want to be great at something, you have to truly care about it. If you want to be great in a particular area, you have to obsess over it.

8. I never felt outside pressure. I knew what I wanted to accomplish, and I knew how much work it took to achieve those goals. I then put in the work and trusted in it. Besides, the expectations I placed on myself were higher than what anyone expected from me.

9. When we are saying this cannot be accomplished, this cannot be done, then we are short-changing ourselves

10. A lot of people say they want to be great, but they’re not willing to make the sacrifices necessary to achieve greatness. They have other concerns, whether important or not, and they spread themselves out. That’s totally fine. After all, greatness is not for everybody.

The Mamba mentality.
A constant quest to try to better today than you were yesterday.
