I used to ask, “If you stole Steven Spielberg’s address book, would it help you get a movie made?”

The point was that even if you had the phone numbers and names, calling them up and saying you’d stolen them wasn’t worth very much. The data has no value without trust and connection.

Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

These people look everywhere for the solution to their problems.
They seek out secret formulas, shortcuts, gurus.
They will turn their entire world upside down before they stop and look at the one place where you can always be sure to find answers

—the book shelf.

Think about how many people want to get better–at something, anything, everything.

Look at how many people are desperate to be successful, or to extricate themselves from this cycle of mediocrity that has trapped so many of our generation.

666, today! 😂

I should check for horns on my head, and then ask @mwlucas, if I can model as Beasdie for one of his book covers 😂😂😂

The things that matter most can't be copied:

You can copy goals, you cant copy discipline.
You can copy ideas, you can’t copy execution.
You can copy answers, you can’t copy understanding.
You can copy thinking, you can’t copy thinking for yourself.

I’m so grateful I never listened to the people who told me my dreams were too big.
They weren’t too big, those people just thought too small.
Keep dreaming my friend!

80s kitsch, catchy beat and all the while, leaving the Goddess’ vocals relatively untouched.

This is a remix done awesomely right!

Life is unpredictable… yet somehow very predictable.
Life comes at us fast.
It doesn’t stop.
It puffs us up and brings us low.
It blesses and curses us.

All we can do is be ready.
All we can do is pick up the pieces and keep going.

It Keeps Coming and Won’t Stop Coming
