“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that! I’m always gonna love you, no matter what. No matter what happens. You’re my son and you’re my blood. You’re the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain’t gonna have a life.”
And my favorite song of the moment is Tiga’s Far From Home, of which came to my attention via my friend Kwe tagging me in the Make It Count video of Nike. 🙂
For the longest time, I was one of those people that thought that the whole motivational/self-help stuff was corny and not really needed. That was until I really needed it and it helped me save myself.
And that’s when I figured out why it’s called self-help. 😉
